Vaccines DO NOT cause austim.

It bears repeating time and again because the evidence has shown that it is true time and again.

Just one of those pieces of evidence was published in the journal "Vaccine" in 2014. The authors of this paper, confidently titled "Vaccines are not associated with autism", performed a meta-analysis (or a study of previous studies) covering over 1.25 million children. Their findings can be stated simply:

1. There was no relationship between vaccination and autism.

2. There was no relationship between vaccination and autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

3. There was no relationship between autism/ASD and MMR.

4. There was no relationship between autism/ASD and thimerosal.

5. There was no relationship between autism/ASD and mercury.

6. Vaccines DO NOT cause autism!

Of all the reporting done on this paper, I particularly like the blog article by Skeptical Raptor. This champion of vaccines has reported tirelessly on this "debate" and was able to bring together many of the pieces in one succinct attack on the perpetrators of a lie that may well costs the lives of many children over the coming years.

I don't like mentioning the names of the key players in the anti-vaccine crowd, since there's a risk of giving them credence. But sadly I may need to speak one name (possibly three times) if the Guardians of the Internet are to notice me over the noise. So I will say that name in very small letters and imagine him being crushed under the boot of the British General Medical Council.

Dr Andrew Wakefield is dishonest, irresponsible, unethical, callous, and has brought the medical profession into disrepute.
