Why is it that whenever Huffington Post puts out a piece by someone advocating for CORRECT, ETHICAL studies to be done on vaccinations that all the crazies come out of the woodwork? It always seems to me the haters are people who are completely UNTOUCHED by autism and have NO idea of what us parents have seen and watched happen to our children or they have been touched by autism and just refuse to try any biomedical approaches. Have you ever seen a parent scrutinizing such articles that says they have tried such approaches and now after doing so, doesn't believe in this stuff? Maybe I'm missing them in the hundreds of comments that usually follow such articles, but I'm really guessing I'm not.

Why does no one want to believe the parents? We can all agree there is no doubt that there is an exponential rise in the prevalence of autism but we can't agree whether that means there should be more research in WHY there is more? I just want to throw my hands up in the air and ask "WTF!?!" All I want is answers!

I guess it just doesn't matter until someone you love slips away. Then you'll care.
