NAS agrees, MMR does not cause autism

21 Sep

Mike Stanton at Action for Autism blogged “NAS agrees, MMR does not cause autism“.

As Mike notes, the NAS (National Autistic Society) statement “Position statement: autism and the MMR vaccine” could be stronger.

The National Autistic Society (NAS) is keenly aware of the understandable concerns of parents surrounding suggested links between autism and the MMR vaccine. We recognise that the weight of epidemiological evidence indicates that there is no statistically significant link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

I don’t want to copy sections for quotes here as Mike gives an excellent discussion of this at his blog. Instead I will refer you to his post.
