New Major Study Finds No Link Between Autism and Childhood Vaccines
[Source: The Daily Mail]
There is no connection between the development of autism with childhood vaccinations, University of Sydney researchers recently found.
The first systematic international review was conducted for the research involved more than 1.25 million children for five cohort studies and a further 9920 for five case-controlled studies.
Results from both showed that there was no statistical data to support a link between commonly-used vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough and the development of autism or autism spectrum disorders.
The Sydney Medical School‘s associate professor Guy Eslick said these vaccines were the ones which had received the most attention by anti-vaccination groups.
‘A rising awareness of autism cases and the claimed but not proven link to childhood vaccinations has led to both an increased distrust in the trade between vaccine benefit outweighing potential risks and an opportunity for disease resurgence.’
