Study Shows Once and For All That Vaccines Don't Cause Autism


"The fact that we were able to study ALL Danish children forward in time, with high-quality information on who and when they were vaccinated with MMR, and then, from other independent registries, who of the children developed autism, gives high credibility to the result of this study". Wakefield wanted to sue manufacturers of the MMR vaccine but lost his medical license in 2010.

"MMR not only protects them, but also limits the chances of the virus spreading more widely, for example to children who are too young to have the vaccine and to adults who may be more vulnerable to the disease". Almost all were in unvaccinated individuals exposed to the virus either directly through travel, having contact with an infectious traveler, or by being exposed to someone with measles in an outbreak area.

But, the damage has been done.

Another drawback is the potential for some kids to have undiagnosed autism before getting the MMR vaccine, which could make the MMR vaccine appear linked to autism when it really isn't connected, the study authors note.

The team of new scientists is set out to overturn these arguments and debunk them one by one.

Researchers published their report on Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. In addition, about one in every 1,000 children with measles develops risky swelling in the brain that can cause convulsions, deafness and intellectual disabilities.

The Statens Serum Institute in Denmark conducted the study to evaluate whether MMR vaccine increases the risk of autism.

No increased risk of autism was observed when comparing children who had received the MMR vaccine and those that did not. Researchers studied and documented diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder and also all the risk factors of the disorder including low eight birth, preterm birth, autism diagnosis in sibling and age of parents. "I remember a couple of years ago we even saw Donald Trump in his presidential campaign tweet about vaccines causing autism".

One of the study's main strengths is the large number of individuals included in the analysis. He added that the European countries have been greatly affected by the number of measles cases, which has seen a recent increase worldwide. It's also possible that the onset of autism symptoms might lead parents to skip the vaccine.

But in 2019, professional epidemiologists are still devoting time and resources to discrediting Wakefield's work, which set off a steep decline in vaccinations, including in the United States, where Wakefield moved in 2004. Two doses of MMR vaccine are about 97 percent effective at preventing measles, and one dose is about 93 percent effective. "My parents thought they were doing the right thing".

The call comes as 32 cases of measles have now been confirmed across Greater Manchester.
