Experts Trot Out to Defend Thimerosal Again

Every so often "experts" are quoted in various media outlets to defend the indefensible. In yet another vaccine-defending and thimerosal-denouncing story, experts claim there is "no evidence" to link an increase in cases of autism in Britain to measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, or thimerosal. They should have least still "very poor evidence," or "weak evidence," or little evidence." But "no evidence?" Yikes.

Whenever a medical expert uses extreme language that generally raises suspicion as to who's paying them and for what reason. In this case, it's likely they never looked for evidence of a link.

There's lots of evidence that thimerosal and MMR vaccines are implicated in causing many cases of autism. If these experts ever look for it they'll find it. Until then, there's no evidence these experts are experts.
