    I am not asking a question with this statement despite the fact that it has a question mark on the end?

    I am asking a question with this text - is it worth waiting for Vega?

    It's possible to not ask a question and to then ask a question.

    It was stated that he found a possible link between MMR and autism.

    You asked if he had done that. You didn't asked if he had claimed to have found a link. You asked if he had found a link.

    I answered that no, he had not found a link.

    Oh look a possible link between organic food and Autism. Maybe healthy choices are the leading cause...

    I did try to highlight that earlier (albeit with rather more random spurious correlations) - though that is the crux of the matter. The various papers popular on antivax/conspiraloon sites and promoted by individuals and organisations with a clear agenda are generally just badly conducted observational studies that end up showing some correlation (most likely through design - like including kids with other difficulties etc..).

    or the effect.....

    people tend to forget that the awareness and diagnosis of autism has skyrocketed since the early 90's, with people being diagnosed as adults after their children have been found with it.

    I have little doubt that increased awareness as well as acknowledgement of high functioning autism is the reason cause for the increased number of diagnose people. Not only has awareness skyrocketed but things such as questionnaires are all over internet which people take and as a result are motivated to take their children for a proper diagnosis.

    God yes, if I had realised there was any ambugity I would have stated it was a parody.
