DALLAS, TX and ALBERTA, Canada – April 27 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Autism Today announces a live, interactive telephone conference will be held from 6:00 – 8:00 PST this Thursday, April 28th featuring David Kirby, author of “Evidence of Harm, A Medical Controversy” (ISBN: 0-312-32544-0). He will address the question: “Does mercury in vaccines cause autism and other disorders in children?”

“I sure wish I would’ve known about these immunization issues when my children were getting their vaccinations. I may have done them differently!” Karen L. Simmons, parent of 6 children, one with autism, author and founder of AutismToday.com

The largest portal for autism, AutismToday.com is hosting the first ever live interactive Telephone Conference with author and New York Times contributor, David Kirby. David’s book, “Evidence of Harm, A Medical Controversy” explores the current debate over mercury in vaccines possibly causing neurological disorders like autism.

The conference will be 6:00 – 8:00 PST this Thursday, April 28th when David Kirby will take the participants through a very powerful online presentation while answering questions from his audience. He will discuss many factors about mercury in vaccinations including what’s safe and what’s not!

Some children with autism were never exposed to mercury, and most people that were exposed show no evidence of harm. But if mercury isn’t responsible for the apparent autism epidemic then what is? This debate compelled the scientific community to consider an environmental component rather than looking purely for a genetic explanation. After all there is no such thing as a genetic epidemic!

Something in our modern world may be pushing a certain number of susceptible kids over the neurological limit. This is where organizations like Autism Today are needed so resources and the latest information are easily accessed.
