Danish study debunks connection between vaccine and autism

  • “Measles vaccine doesn’t cause autism” – conclusive Danish study | The Thaiger

The study wasn't a controlled experiment created to prove whether or how vaccines might cause autism.

"The study strongly supports that MMR vaccination does not increase the risk for autism, does not trigger autism in susceptible children, and is not associated with clustering of autism cases after vaccination", explained Drs.

The latest evidence unequivocally denying any link between autism and the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella - a two-dose course that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is 97 percent effective - came Monday in a paper published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. "In 2011, The Lancet retracted the study after an investigation found that Wakefield altered or misrepresented information on the 12 children who were the basis for the conclusion of his study".

"I am more concerned about the perhaps larger group of parents who encounter anti-vaccine pseudoscience and propaganda on the internet, and become concerned and uncertain". "It's imported from other parts of the world, finds those pockets of susceptible children and causes illness, also among children who at the moment are too young to be vaccinated".

The study, which followed all Danish children born between 1999 and 2010 until 2013, compared the number of vaccinated and unvaccinated kids who were diagnosed with autism, and found no difference.

The study's first author, epidemiologist Anders Hviid of the Staten Serum Institute in Copenhagen, added in an email: "MMR does not cause autism".

Currently, there is a concerning increase in measles cases in Europe and the US, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared vaccine hesitancy as one of the top 10 threats to global health.

A study has debunked a myth autism is linked to the MMR vaccination.

Every scientifically sound study of the subject published in the subsequent 20 years has confirmed that there is no connection between vaccine use and rates of autism.

The findings show the vaccine does not increase the risk of autism, lending new statistical certainty to what was already medical consensus.

Yet, many parents still fear vaccinating their children against these preventable diseases, and it is creating big risks.

There's strong new evidence that a common childhood vaccine is safe.

Nevertheless, the myth persists and can spread around the Internet like wildfire, contributing to a situation where measles cases have doubled in the a year ago and teenagers are forced to get the vaccine behind their parents' backs.
