Morning Scepticism: Blame

In the desire to find something to blame, sometimes the wrong target is vilified. For vaccines, it represents a public threat because of the misapplied outrage over autism. So while there is the imperative from a societal perspective to quash this falsehood, from the perspective of the victim is it really worth blaming something even if it isn't the right thing to blame? Surely it matters in finding what causes autism instead of blaming something that doesn't, irrespective of all other health concerns that come from the lack of vaccination.
