46. Anyone who paid rational attention to the statistics and the literature...
...could have seen this coming.

Autopsies of those with classic autism have found a missing slice of brainstem in many cases. The missing features develop in normal fetuses in the first month of gestation.

Parental age is very strongly associated with the risk of having an autistic child. Furthermore, parental age is a known contributing factor in plenty of other developmental issues.

Please riddle me this. Exactly how does thimerserol affect events which took place as much as two years before it is administered?

While you're about it, explain how a substance can be the cause of a disorder, when the incidence of that disorder is identical in large populations of persons given that substance and in equally large populations not given it?
