So, yesterday I posted an email I had written to Dr. Tom Insel, head of IACC. You can read it here. I asked if someone could please send me Autism Speaks' Rob Ring's email. And someone kindly obliged. Here's the email I sent to Rob Ring. Both of the emails are a response to the post Katie Wright ran on Thursday regarding the complete and total and seemingly purposeful disregard both Ring and Insel have for meaningful autism research.

As you might understand, it is quite frustrating for parents who are reading the research on autism, and who see its links to vaccines over and over again, to hear Autism Speaks claim there are no links between the two. I am sure that in the cloistered circle in which you operate, the line that vaccines are not linked to autism works just fine, as everyone's paycheck depends on toting that line. However, you need to understand, out here in the real world, where we actually live, that claim is absurd. Because parents can read. You sound silly.
So I am sending you a list I have complied of research papers that show the links between vaccines and autism, and the mechanisms by which it is happening. The document of the 101 abstracts is attached, and I keep a current list online here: https://www.scribd.com/doc/220807175/86-Research-Papers-Supporting-the-Vaccine-Autism-Link
Now you can finally get started on THE most promising lines of inquiry on ways to prevent and treat most cases of autism!
But let's be honest, you won't. If you wanted to, you would have done so a long time ago.
In fact I have it on good authority that you don't even bother responding to emails of this nature, even from struggling parents, because you care so little about making any difference in the actual live of families struggling with these complex and burdensome medical issues. Because again, talking about the real research does not further your cause. I mean Pfizer's cause.
So I feel perfectly comfortable in sending you grandstanding emails like this, that call you out on being a phony who does not even remotely begin to fulfill Autism Speak's mission statement, because I have the utmost confidence that you will simply continue to ignore me, the research, the Thorsen scandal, the Thompson scandal, the Merck MMR Mumps scandal, Verstraeten's first draft, Boyle's emails, DeStefano's admission that no one has ever looked to see if vaccines can cause autism in individual cases, #GarbageCan, #VAXwhistleblower, Unanswered Questions, Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, the willful ignorance of the entire medical establishment of vaccine induced encephalopathy, as well as the reports on VICP by Stanford Law, American University Law, The Associated Press, and the US GAO.
Because when the research list reaches 200, or 300, or 400 citations, you still will ignore it. Until the day that it is no longer simply our children's health and functioning on the line, but your paycheck and your career.
But do get in touch if you decide to change your mind and stop looking like the CEO of a Tobacco company trying to deny that their products cause cancer 40 years after we knew they did.
