Subject: MMR jab scare research dealt a 'killer blow'

In reference to the article titled, "MMR jab scare research dealt a 'killer blow'" by Brian Deer, I have not seen any study that can provide clinical science proving that the MMR vaccine is not linked to autism. The recent study in Japan by Honda, Rutter et al did not do any colon biopsies, immune blood panel tests or lumbar punctures. This study was just like prior studies that tried to disprove the link between autism and the MMR vaccine, it was a computer-based number study that tried to come to a conclusion without real science.
It is time to do real science and replicate the science done by Dr. Andrew Wakefield and Dr. Vijendra Singh. The autism pandemic is not genetic but due to the vaccine assault on our children. Denying the science won't make it go away.  Denying that we are having an autism pandemic will not make our children go away. Denying that we have a problem won't make families go away and it certainly won't make us less vocal about what happened to our children.
My son, Eric tested positive for myelin basic protein antibodies, he has elevated measles antibody titers and colitis. Those that deny that the MMR vaccine did this to my son (and thousands of other Eric's), please explain to me what did? Don't deny it but produce science to explain it!!! To date I have not seen or heard of any science that could tell me something different.
In April 1995, I wemt to a National Institutes of Health autism conference in Bethesda, Maryland. I met M. Rutter and showed him the blood test done by Dr. Vijendra Singh that showed our son, Eric tested positive for myelin basic protein antibodies. He and others didn't know what to make of it but I knew it indicated an autoimmune disorder. Either M. Rutter was ignorant or he was pretending he didn't know what the results indicated. Maybe because M. Rutter is a psychiatrist and relies on prescription drugs for his practice, his judgement is clouded by pharmaceutical lobby?
