http://daisymayfattypants.blogspot.com/2010/09/pediatrics-study-finds-no-link-between.htmlIt's worth your time - Emily breaks down not just why the study is comprehensive and inclusive in both approach and findings, but preempts potential criticism about conflicts of interest or conspiracy. She also highlights something I'd not read before: researchers have noted a *negative* association between thimerosal exposure and autism.
Thanks for linking to my post, Shan. It's funny because I've had that "positive effect of thimerosal" in my head for awhile (I think there might be at least one other study in addition to this and the one I cite that found that)...and the thing is, if we were practicing science appropriately, we'd be pursuing that intriguing finding, with the hypothesis, "Thimerosal reduces autism risk."ReplyDelete
Thanks, will be good to read an analysis of this from a person who is also a parent :)ReplyDelete
