McCain says "strong evidence" ties vaccines to autism

Senator John McCain and his wife, Cindy McCain, were joined Monday at a news conference at the Phoenix airport by former Senator Phil Gramm of Texas and his wife, Wendy Gramm.
Presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. John McCain injected himself into the debate over autism while campaigning in Texas recently, rejecting numerous medical studies that dismiss the mercury-based preservative thimerosal as a cause. "It's indisputable that autism is on the rise among children," McCain said. "The question is, What's causing it? And we go back and forth, and there's strong evidence that indicates that it's got to do with a preservative in vaccines." The New York Times
