RFK Jr. headlines conference in Colorado Springs that maintains autism caused by vaccines

​The decades-long controversy over whether childhood immunizations can be traced to brain injuries such as autism is called quackery by many medical professionals and viewed as a cover-up by others, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
The nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy, a lawyer and environmentalist, Kennedy has become an outspoken skeptic, disputing determinations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and other scientific groups that the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal does not cause symptoms of autism.
"The studies are devastating, but they don't have to be taken seriously by the mainstream - the vaccine program is part of this matrix of corruption," Kennedy said Thursday, while addressing the 15th annual national conference of AutismOne.
