In Reply to: Vaccines and Autism from CDC posted by DRR on May 28, 2000 at 00:20:47:

: For those who haven't, please visit http://www.cdc.gov/nip/vacsafe/concerns/autism/default.htm

:
: What is Montel's e-mail address? I agree that vaccine and autism connection should be researched (today - now).

: I agree that some people may be quietened by CDC or whomever because of the perceived importance of vaccine to the rest of the human population.
: I guess someone has the responsibility to not cause panic without clear evidence.

just

reproduced

non-profit

> Thanks to all who alerted me to the CDC web page. I will be

> Question 6: I heard that measles virus was found in specimens from

other

> CDC Answer. "The recently released finding has not yet been
published

other

> study are sound. No other laboratories have had similar findings."

> Actually: Professor John O'Leary's work was reviewed by the Royal
> College of Pathologists in Dec. of 1999 and was found to be sound. The
> truth is that a Japanese research team not only found measles virus in the
> intestines of children with autism but isolated it to the vaccine strain.
> See, Detection and Sequencing of Measles Virus from Peripheral Mononuclear
> Cells From Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Digestive Diseases
and
> Sciences, April 2,000.
>
> Left Out: CDC also left out an important fact from Question 1: The
> Royal Statistical Society has criticized the Brent Taylor study that is
> uniformly cited by our government officials. So have other renowned
> epidemiologists such as Walter Spitzer whose testimony was given to the
> Government Reform Committee on April 6th.
