The researchers also found no increased risk among subgroups of children who might be unusually susceptible to autism, such as those with a brother or sister with the disorder. Children with autistic siblings were seven times more likely to receive their own autism diagnosis, boys were more likely to be diagnosed than girls, and - perhaps most shocking of all - "children who had no childhood vaccinations were 17 percent more likely to be diagnosed with autism than kids who did get recommended vaccinations". The US now is dealing with outbreaks of diseases like measles that had once been thought eradicated within the country.
The study's first author, epidemiologist Anders Hviid of the Staten Serum Institute in Copenhagen, added in an email: "MMR does not cause autism". Their study followed child births in Denmark from 1999 to December 31, 2010, and then followed up with the children from 1 year old until the study was completed in 2013.
The Centers for Disease Control and many others have long noted there's no proven link between vaccines and autism, and now the agency has yet another study to back those claims. However, researchers found that there was no overall increased risk of autism among those who received the vaccine verses those who did not.
