But that won't stop the fanatics and their propagandists like David Kirby who claim that it is something else, even if it isn't thimerasol, just as long as it is something that corporations are pushing in a dark conspiracy with the government:
"All that said, thimerosal may well not be a factor in a single case of autism. But what if one day, we discovered it had caused, say, one percent of all cases? With estimates of autism as high as 1.5 million in the country, that would mean 15,000 Americans who were ravaged by thimerosal (not to mention everyone overseas).
But if thimerosal is vindicated, or shown to be a very minor player, then what about other vaccine ingredients? And what about the rather crowded vaccine schedule we now impose upon families of young children? And what about reports of unvaccinated children in Illinois, California and Oregon who appear to have significantly lower rates of autism? Shouldn't we throw some research dollars into studying them?
You can answer that, no, we shouldn't, because the vaccine-autism debate is over.
But I am willing to wager that it has only just begun."
I hear the black choppers whirling overhead.
