To the Editor:
I have been out of town on a trip and just got back in time to read your Oct. 3 article on autism and vaccines. I appreciate the responsible reporting of this issue and wanted to let you know that I support such efforts to express reliable scientific information to the public.
I was disappointed to read an article in a sister Shaw Media publication, McHenry County Magazine, that expressed an unscientific opinion of autism, including blaming toxins in the environment, and implied that vaccines could be a cause. This is the very misinformation being fought by the people in your article, which is being disseminated in a magazine being published by the same company.
I hope the kinds of articles and responsible journalism that appeared in this newspaper will be moved to other Shaw Media publications in the future.
