This was also printed in one of the San Diego papers; both cited the publication in "Open Journal of Pediatrics." The "Open Journal... " does claim to be a peer reviewed scientific publication. This publication does exist and can readily found on the internet - it looks like quite the ordinary thing in format.
They cite CA and some other state records of cases of hypothyroidism in infants (turns out this a commonplace post-natal exam). Of course, they cite only 2 periods and just skip all that nasty stuff of normal fluctuations in events, other times of observation and all things statistical :).
Would be a great thing to rebut in an actual scientific manner. It is a shame to let non-science pass itself off as actual science, even if commonplace and less obvious to the press.
