Eggs and the fridge

"In the UK, for instance, it is required by law that all hens be immunized against Salmonella. This protection measure, enacted in the late 1990s, has seen Salmonella cases in Britain drop from 14,771 reported cases in 1997 to just 581 cases in 2009."

No mention if autism surged among British chickens as well.

"Even in spite of our egg-washing and our refrigeration habits, FDA data indicates there are close to 150,000 illnesses reported every year due to eggs contaminated by Salmonella."

Britain has about 1/5 the population of the US, so a comparable rate would be 30,000 cases. They were under half that before vaccination, and now they're at 2% of that.
