Childhood vaccinations not linked to development of autism, University of Sydney finds

Childhood vaccinations not linked to development of autism, University of Sydney finds | Healthy News | Scoop.it
THERE is no evidence to link the development of autism with childhood vaccines, research from the University of Sydney has found.
Norma's insight:

Here popular media reports on the findings of a recent large scale study which again RULES OUT any association between vaccination and autism. The publishing house of the original study reporting the link has removed the study form its journal the Lancet. The findings of the study have been completely discredited and the Medical Practitioner who wrote the article has been deemed dishonest and struck off by the medial council. Yet the aftermath of these false claims back in 1998 continue to negatively impact the uptake of routine vaccinations with once successfully controlled illnesses re-establishing themselves as burdens on population health.
