The owner of PepsiCo has refused to speak to us about this matter.
Unlike pepsi ad you say drugs like that tend to contain things like poisonous metals. It may have very well been a coincidence I'm just that it is suspicious and that the possibility, however unlikely could still be true in some way.
Sean, that's SPORE. Complete SPORE. If anything, Pepsi Co. is far more likely to shorten your lifespan or decrease the quality of your life than a vaccine is.
You have no idea how much meticulous testing, documentation, retesting, documentation verification, retesting, and more documenting and testing happens before a drug regulated by the FDA can make it anywhere near a person. And even after it makes it to a clinical trial, it still has to go through a whole lot of scrutiny before it can make it to the general public. There are a huge number of people working for different departments, companies, and regulatory agencies that all go through the same information to verify its integrity.
Unlike you, I have an acute interest in the scientific process and have studied a great deal of chemistry and biology. I have also either participated in or witnessed firsthand many of the processes that eventually lead to a completed pharmaceutical product.

I really wish people would stop this. The big paper from Andrew Wakefield that started this nonsense has been disproved and was retracted as fraudulent long ago (the man broke every rule in the book, including falsifying data) and this is just a byproduct of the sensationalizing of its initial publication. Everyone wants to read about a train wreck, but no one cares when the paper publishes a correction the next day stating it never happened. Numerous studies have shown no link whatsoever between autism and vaccination.
tl;dr: Maelgwyn is right. Correlation does not imply causation is entirely apt here.
I've never heard of that paper. Anyway, my brother was starting to talk and everything until shortly after that injection so I find it hard to believe that it didn't have anything to do with it. Even if it doesn't directly cause it it might somehow help to stimulate the genetics or whatever that do cause it (the genetics are there, it runs a bit in my dads side of the family).
Also evidence and tests can be falsified, drug companies and hospitals make a lot of money off of stuff like this. Years ago people got away with hiding the fact that lead is toxic for quite some time.
My genetics are being stimulated right now by your scientific prowess.
