July 25, Salt Lake City, Deseret News: It's safe to vaccinate kids — studies find autism risks are linked to genetics instead

July 24, 2014, WFMZ, Allentown, PA: Life Lessons Detecting autism earlier
Hu cited a plethora of studies that have ruled vaccinations do not cause autism, and chastised celebrity parents like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Jenny McCarthy for crusading against vaccination.
There are two fraudulent claims here: There is no link, and autism is genetic. Good luck with proving either is true.
RFK Jr.'s crusade to ban vaccines...
It's hard to move on after this first outright lie. No one is reading and reporting on what's IN KENNEDY'S BOOK. They're just spreading lies about it. It's unbelievable how scared these people are about the truth getting out.
The average age of diagnosis for a child with autism is five-and-a-half. Experts say that's way too late.

MY POSTED COMMENT:
It's hard to understand how this story rates as "news." SEVEN YEARS AGO, in 2007, the AAP first called for screening children twice for autism by age two.
The only thing that has changed is that back in 2007, the autism rate was one in every 150 children and today it's one in every 68. The one thing the AAP has never called for is finding the cause and stopping the epidemic. In another seven years we can only imagine what the autism rate will be.
