Study of 657,461 children finds no link between vaccines and autism

 

Danish researchers followed children born over a 10-year period and found no connection between autism and the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine.

The vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella doesn't cause autism, according to a massive, new study.

There have now been multiple properly executed large studies demonstrating NO causation from vaccines for autism. The science is clear! "There is nothing to fear except fear itself." Many important childhood diseases can be prevented: Most bacterial meningitis, some bacterial sepsis, some sinus and ear infecitons, Measles, german measles, mumps, chicken pox, hepatitis a, hepatitis b, cervical cancers, liver cancers, throat & mouth cancers, tetanus, whooping cough, diphtheria, polio, infant rotavirus vomiting & diarrhea.

If you are following the advice of nay-sayers, ask them to provide scientific studies supporting their claims of risk & injury & read it carefully.

LEADING THE NEWS

Tetanus Case In Unvaccinated Child Highlights Continued Threat Of Rare Disease Among Unvaccinated People, Study Suggests.

 

Medscape (3/7, Subscription Publication) provides coverage of a case report by researchers at the Oregon Health and Science University suggesting that “a recent case of tetanus in an unvaccinated child highlights the continued threat of this rare but dangerous disease among the unvaccinated individuals in the United States.” One researcher wrote, “Unvaccinated or inadequately vaccinated persons are at risk for tetanus, irrespective of age, and recovery from tetanus disease does not confer immunity.” The case report was published online in the CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

 

STAT (3/7) also covers the story of the boy infected with tetanus. The unvaccinated child, after becoming infected, “spent 54 days in [the] hospital – 47 of them in intensive care.” He was back to normal functioning after nearly four months, with a hospital bill totaling “$811,929, and that didn’t include the cost of the air ambulance, the stay in the rehabilitation facility, or follow-up care that was needed.”
