Mercury will mess you up...

I cannot do the necessary re-reading of this story in Salon. It just makes me too angry. I am in fits right now. Read it.

Basic summary:

"When a study revealed that mercury in childhood vaccines may have caused autism in thousands of kids, the government rushed to conceal the data -- and to prevent parents from suing drug companies for their role in the epidemic."

I'll try to write something on this in a bit. No promises.

UPDATE: I may have jumped the gun on this article(here's Orac's methodical response). The Salon article apparently really poorly researched and it's conclusions are unfounded. Well I'm fucking glad. Hey, errybody makes mistakes. My bad.
