It used to be that when you googled 'autism and mercury' you found a host of well argued and researched papers, websites and personal accounts. Where are they now? Submerged by the deluge of websites run by medical experts, scientists or pro-science 'sceptics' poking fun and ridicule at anyone they call 'anti-vax'.
If I had my time again I'd still give my girl the DTP and Hib vaccines but I'd definitely hold back on the mercury laden Hep B newborn jab.
Is that anti vaccine? Nope. It's just informed choice. But you wouldn't know it reading the anti-choice blogs.
When science shields science, you have to worry about the world...
