  1. Vaccines are not associated with autism: an evidence-based meta-analysis of case-control and cohort studies. Taylor LE, et al. Vaccine. 2014. Show full citation Abstract There has been enormous debate regarding the possibility of a link between childhood vaccinations and the subsequent development of autism. This has in recent times become a major public health issue with vaccine preventable diseases increasing in the community due to the fear of a 'link' between vaccinations and autism. We performed a meta-analysis to summarise available evidence from case-control and cohort studies on this topic (MEDLINE, PubMed, EMBASE, Google Scholar up to April, 2014). Eligible studies assessed the relationship between vaccine administration and the subsequent development of autism or autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Two reviewers extracted data on study characteristics, methods, and outcomes. Disagreement was resolved by consensus with another author. Five cohort studies involving 1,256,407 children, and five case-control studies involving 9,920 children were included in this analysis. The cohort data revealed no relationship between vaccination and autism (OR: 0.99; 95% CI: 0.92 to 1.06) or ASD (OR: 0.91; 95% CI: 0.68 to 1.20), nor was there a relationship between autism and MMR (OR: 0.84; 95% CI: 0.70 to 1.01), or thimerosal (OR: 1.00; 95% CI: 0.77 to 1.31), or mercury (Hg) (OR: 1.00; 95% CI: 0.93 to 1.07). Similarly the case-control data found no evidence for increased risk of developing autism or ASD following MMR, Hg, or thimerosal exposure when grouped by condition (OR: 0.90, 95% CI: 0.83 to 0.98; p=0.02) or grouped by exposure type (OR: 0.85, 95% CI: 0.76 to 0.95; p=0.01). Findings of this meta-analysis suggest that vaccinations are not associated with the development of autism or autism spectrum disorder. Furthermore, the components of the vaccines (thimerosal or mercury) or multiple vaccines (MMR) are not associated with the development of autism or autism spectrum disorder.

  2. We know that vaccines cause autism. You would have to be an absolute brain washed idiot to still believe they don't. Their little "studies" are such bullshit you can smell it a mile away.

    As parents around the world have known for 7 decades, and basic science has supported, vaccines do cause autism. Despite the defiance of the CDC in its refusal to conduct that most basic of studies, a retrospective case-control investigation of autism rates in vaccinated versus unvaccinated children, science has been supporting the connection for years. In a transparent effort to paralyze the conversation, the Institute of Medicine has handily dismissed a causal relationship between vaccination and autism, referencing 4 studies, including the very study in question, and another by now fugitive Paul Thorsen, and one that actually did demonstrate over 50% regression after MMR. Analyses that have been done, outside of Pharma’s pocket book, have demonstrated statistically significant correlations between vaccination and autism and suggested that prevention involves less-to-no vaccination.

  3. This Hotez lied when he was interviewed by Joe Rogen, when he said the only substances in vaccines were the antigen and saline. why would he, a supposed vaccine scientist, say something like this ? because he is funded by industry. read the package inserts to see the vaccine ingredients. yes mercury is still there, along with aluminum, formaldehyde, poly sorbate 80, msg, glyphosate, human fetal dna from abortions, etc, and most probably retroviruses that will harm people years down the road. Hotez is a joke.

  4. why won't Hotez debate with the so called anti vaxx side ? because he doesn't have the science to back it up. time to return liability to the vaccine industry and let the market forces decide if vaccines are a good product.

  5. "The science bears that out" so says this bow tied sell out to the pharmaceutical companies that ha e granted him millions to create new vaccines. What studies? The CDC considers vaccines to be labeled as biologics, thus exempt from safety studies.

  6. Dr Zimmerman admits vaccines cause autism in some cases http://fullmeasure.news/news/cover-story/the-vaccination-debate?fbclid=IwAR1fg-OMqyyYGrk4rbi85FOsH9zqb_hjtTghwLT4_81i4ukv4Zh9M3Vt3W8
