Yet another study shows MMR doesn’t cause autism
Yet another comprehensive study has shown that the MMR vaccine does not cause autism. In a study that looked at 27,749 children over a 12 year period, of which 180 were diagnosed with pervasive developmental disorders, and of which over 90% were vaccinated (the actual figure changed from one year to the next depending on current trends), the conclusion was clear and simple: no link. In fact, the number of children being vaccinated has decreased while the number of children being diagnosed with autism has increased.
Yet the anti-vaccination liars continue to pooh-pooh the results, mostly settling for lying about what the paper says (don’t believe them, go read it for yourself), and making ad-hominem attacks against its authors. Dr. Eric Fombonne, for example:
Fombonne is a psychiatrist and that means not a real clinician nor scientist. Psychiatry is in the most unsuccessful branch of medicine in history.
Eric Fombonne is not qualified to be engaged in this kind of work.
Dr. Fombonne is a psychiatrist (and what exactly is wrong with that?). He specialises in child psychology, particularly in developmental abnormalities, and is one of the world’s foremost experts on autism. He is a Professor of Psychiatry at McGill University, directs the Department of Psychiatry at Montreal Children’s Hospital, and serves as the Canada Research Chair in Child Psychiatry. To be honest, i can’t think of anyone else who would be more qualified to conduct a study on autism, but that’s all you can expect from these people: lies, lies and more lies.
