MMR Vaccine May Not Cause Autism

Parent Interventions

A new research has once again confirmed that MMR Vaccine may not lead to development of autism in children.

A new study published in Annals of Internal Medicine shows that Mumps Measles Rubella vaccine may not cause autism in children. The findings were based on a study of 657,461 children in Denmark. It was found that 6517 children developed autism. However, there was no co-relation between MMR vaccine and autism as those who did not take the vaccine were also susceptible to the disease.

Parents tend to avoid giving some vaccinations based on hearsay that they cause certain other diseases or adverse side effects. Risk-benefit analysis tends to favour giving vaccination to protect a child rather than basing a decision on unverified hypothesis or hearsay.
