Ooo Scientists fear MMR link to Autism

Quote:
Now a team from the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in North Carolina are examining 275 children with regressive autism and bowel disease - and of the 82 tested so far, 70 prove positive for the measles virus.

Last night the team's leader, Dr Stephen Walker, said: 'Of the handful of results we have in so far, all are vaccine strain and none are wild measles.

'This research proves that in the gastrointestinal tract of a number of children who have been diagnosed with regressive autism, there is evidence of measles virus.

'What it means is that the study done earlier by Dr Wakefield and published in 1998 is correct. That study didn’t draw any conclusions about specifically what it means to find measles virus in the gut, but the implication is it may be coming from the MMR vaccine. If that’s the case, and this live virus is residing in the gastrointestinal tract of some children, and then they have GI inflammation and other problems, it may be related to the MMR.'

Question

Oh, what a nightmare! I really feel sorry for those families!

Live measles in the GI tract! Does that mean they are carriers too? Can they infect others?

My daughter was part of a study several years ago, conducted 4 years after her MMR (she is on the spectrum). She tested positive for significant amounts of measles virus in her SALIVA---after all that time she was continuing to shed the virus in her saliva.

The "experts" can run, but they can't hide. The truth will come out, but unfortunately for my daughter and countless others, too late.
