The Today show interviewed Dr. Paul Offit about his new book "Autism's False Prophets".  They did a very nice job and finally the truth that the scientific community knows is getting out to the public.  Quoting Dr. Nancy Snyderman, "There is no controversy!"

I highly recommend Dr. Offit's book.  He provides a history of the MMR and thimerosal hysteria, the trash science behind the supposed "controversy", and discusses the real science (16 good large medical studies refute any causation) that refutes these theories as causation.

Oh yeah baby, I saw it!!!!!  I loved how they spoke of "celebrity influence" and that for people that hold these views against proven science it is a religion to them or they are religious about it.  I also love love love how forceful Dr. Snyderman was with Matt in the end.  THIS IS NO CONTROVERSY!!!   Amen.

YEAH!!!! It is genetic.  Just like ADHD.  And sorry, Jenny McCarthy there is no cure, what she is receiving for her son is good treatment.
