Do Vaccines Cause Autism?

The controversy began in 1998 when British researchers published a paper in the Lancet - the most prestigious medical publication in Great Britain - stating that the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine caused autism. The biggest problem with this paper was the fact the study looked at only 12 children. Coincidentally, there was a rapid increase in the number of children diagnosed with the condition.and studies ever since have been involved dispelling this myth.

A brand new study from Denmark.

The study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine and involved 657,461 children in the analysis. 6,517 of whom were diagnosed with autism over the next decade. But there was no overall increased risk for Autism among those who received the MMR vaccine when compared with those who had not received the vaccine.

Listen to the report:  A Large Study Provides More Evidence That MMR Vaccines Don't Cause Autism

Even before this large study at least 12 follow-up studies were done since the controversy and none found any evidence the vaccine caused autism.

The Immunization Safety Review Committee of the Institute of Medicine looked at all the studies on vaccines and autism - not just MMR - including studies that were both published and unpublished. A 200-page report was published stating there was no evidence to support a link between vaccines and autism. The report that is freely available can be found at:
