There is no increased risk of autism from common childhood vaccines, another large study has found.
A 10-year study of more than 650,000 people was published Monday and showed no evidence that there is a link between autism and the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella.
Just a five percent reduction in vaccination coverage can triple measles cases in the community, researchers note. Of those, 6,517 were diagnosed with autism. Using the Danish health registry allowed them to compare a cohort of vaccinated children against un-vaccinated children, definitively showing that those who did receive MMR were not at a higher risk of autism. The researchers documented a host of characteristics alongside diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder, including proven autism risk factors, like the "age of the parents, diagnosis of autism in a sibling, preterm birth and low weight at birth, "according to CNN". The researchers looked at children who have a sibling with autism and those with older parents, for example, to see whether some kids are more likely to be diagnosed with autism following an MMR vaccination, The Guardian reports.
"The dangers of not vaccinating includes a resurgence in measles which we are seeing signs of today in the form of outbreaks", Hviid said by email.
The myth that vaccines cause autism has its gensis in a fraudulent study submitted to The Lancet in 1998.

The study wasn't a controlled experiment created to prove whether or how vaccines might cause autism.
Subsequent studies have been unable to repeat the same results of Wakefield's study and have found no link between vaccines and autism.
"This myth surrounding MMR and autism has existed for over 20 years and I think it's very important that there is some science-based response to that", Anders Hviid, a senior research with the State Serum Institute (SSI) who is among the authors of the new research, told DR Nyheder. Even that wasn't enough for Wakefield, who then manipulated the data in order to strengthen his hypothesis.
Anyone with a rational frame of mind came to the proper conclusion years ago - vaccines don't cause autism and any suggestion they did was the fruit of fraud.
"Anti-vaxxers" refuse to immunise children, in the (mistaken) belief that vaccines cause conditions such as autism. The second is the testimony of the young man who broke away from his parents' control to escape the anti-vaxx movement, followed by an ABC News profile of Lindenberger and his family.
