Autism and Vaccines

From Autism Speaks:
Over the last two decades, extensive research has asked whether there is any link between childhood vaccinations and autism. The results of this research are clear: Vaccines do not cause autism. We urge that all children be fully vaccinated.

Who is behind groups such as Generation Rescue and the National Vaccine Information Center? LBRB reports:
CNN Money has a short video up that makes a point that a few of us have been making for the past few years: much of the vaccine antagonistic message is funded by a few wealthy people. A good discussion can be found at A Snapshot of the Deep Pockets of the Anti-Vaccine Movement on Haprocrates Speaks. The CNN piece is called “The money behind the vaccine skeptics“. I can’t get the video to embed here, but one can find it here.
Here’s a screenshot from CNN showing the organizations, people and money that CNN discusses (click to enlarge)
