No link between MMR Vaccine and Autism

The Lancet, widely regarded as the most reputable medical journal in the world, has just published new studies in it's September 11th issue confirming, yet again, that there is no link between the Measles Mumps & Rubella (MMR) Vaccine and Autism.

The authors went back and looked at the cases of people with autism that were born after 1973. They checked 1,294 autism case files. They also did case files of 4,469 healthy controls matched to the autism case files.

The children who developed autism actually had a lower MMR vaccination rate than those of the healthy controls, with 78% vaccinated against 83% of healthy children. Despite the scare tactics by the anti-vaccination liars and their continued claims that MMR causes autism, there is no evidence whatsoever to support that claim.

Governments, universities and research institutes have wasted millions of dollars showing the claims made by the anti-vaccination lobby to be nothing but lies designed to scare parents into leaving their children exposed to life-threatening and easily preventable diseases. The Lancet study was just one more in a long line of studies showing that the fabled link does not exist.

The question that some may ask, is why? Why is the anti-vaccination lobby so unwilling to accept the huge amount of evidence that they are wrong?

One just has to look at the number of anti-vaccination liars involved with homeopathy, naturopathic remedies, herbalism and vitamin therapy, to see they are more interested in denigrating modern scientific medicine and replace it with SCAM. This is just one more tactic to get SCAM accepted as being better than real medicine.

The evidence shows that SCAM is just what the acronym suggests, a scam.

"There is only one truth. How we interpret that truth is called belief." "The presence of belief, does not indicate the existence of truth."
