they're usually very bland and shallow and manage to completely miss the point! And they're not good for my blood pressure

It's shite, it really is.

Was MadDrFitzpatrick on it?

he didn't even manage to mention the salient point "because they get paid significant amounts by the government to hit vaccination targets" while he was musing inanely on the question "why don't gps provide information on where to get single jabs".
really really hopeless programme.

oh that's so yawnable. The "truth" always misses the point that no-one is suggesting all autistic children have been MMR damaged. Just a small proportion of them.

Probably other things involved as well- gut inflammation, possibly thimerosal. Very grey0 but always portrayed as completely balck and white. Very infuriating.

These programms are generally cr*p - the research is derisable (and I don't just mean in last nights programme - but all of them). It's like 'lets take a BIG issue and distill it down into half an hours TV and dumb it down while we are at it'. And he annoys me - he should stick to Top Gear.......

I wonder how many people saw the message projected onto westminster at midnight? ummm, that won't be many then. Me thinks Mr Blair was probably tucked up in his bed, along with most of us who are concerned about this.

It also finished very abruptly without comming to any conclusion.

Socci- there's quite a bit due to be published soon about thimerosal and autism. I heard that Kennedy had got involved- useful as it will mean it stays on the agenda in the American govt. Our family history ties in completely with the "at risk" groups being identified in these studies. Did you see that Wakefield slide show (could do with the soundtrack). I think that mentions thimerosal as well. It's here scroll to the bottom and you'll find it.

nah- they've removed thimerosal anyway from paediatric jabs- maybe they'll remove it from others (would be good). Not sure what's replaced it though! And they'll never admit anything, and brain damage is brain damage I guess.

Do you have powerpoint? It takes ages to download- it's a long talk.

Jimjams - it will be interesting to see if the autism statistics drop over the next few years seeing as thimerosal is no longer used.

Jimjams Sat 06-Aug-05 17:08:25

supposedly it is furball in california - they've been slowly removing it from paed jabs in the States since 1999. Always a bit trickky though as stocks were being used up- and its only ever going to be a subset of autism caused this way- as yet no-one knows how big the subset is.
