David Kirby Recants "There is no Autism Epidemic"

Now THIS is interesting. One of the most surprising pieces of news I've heard in a long time from the world of Autism...

David Kirby wrote the now-famous and well-circulated book entitled "Evidence of Harm, Mercury in Vaccines and the Autism Epidemic - A Medical Controversy". It formed the basis of many legal arguments, debates, ads and water cooler conversations. His 'evidence' was referred to on nearly every American talk show and news program and it is and thousands of parents of children who have autism thought they had found that one person who seemed to have all the answers.

Look what he's saying now:

"There Is No Autism Epidemic"

Here is some of the backlash from the blogging community:
