In the news today is an announcement from researchers who say that there is absolutely no correlation between Autism and the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. This is pretty huge in the Autism world, considering there are so many parents and parent advocates out there who believe otherwise.
I just got off the phone with an assistant researcher to W. Ian Lipkin, who played a major role in this latest study. I just couldn't resist finding out just who had funded the study. (ie: pharma??) I was told that it was 100% funded by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). And it was the most thorough study done in this area to date. So it looks like this is the real deal.
Any parents of kids with Autism out there who think otherwise?
