(understanding “distracting research”)

Portland, Oregon – We autism parents are being browbeaten by a mantra from the mainstream media and health authorities spoken so loudly and repeated so often that it seems it simply must be true, namely:
“It’s been asked and answered, vaccines do not cause autism.”
The science has been done. Deal with it. Case closed.
How do you fight against something repeated by so many seemingly respectable and informed people? Ben Carson just said it yesterday:
Because we live in a society where almost everybody gets vaccines, they make that false correlation. There’ve been multitudinous scientific studies that have demonstrated that there’s no correlation. It’s sort of like if all of a sudden everybody had to eat carrots, and we say that every week you have to eat a dozen carrots, and then somebody would be saying, ‘You know, that’s what’s causing the autism.’ They’re all eating the carrots, and this certain percentage has autism.
(And, yes, he just compared getting vaccinated to eating a carrot.)
If a doctor running for President is saying it, it must be true! Right?
Well, no, wrong actually. If any interested party would devote 30 minutes of their life to looking at the actual details of the “multitudinous” science done to date, they’d understand the truth, too.
