No Connection Found Between Autism And Vaccines, Study Says

The supposed connection between autism and vaccines has long been perpetuated. Experts now believe that there is no link or any chance of a connection between the condition and the vaccines. 

Many papers have been written which refute the assumption of this connection. The study "Association Between Influenza Infection and Vaccination During Pregnancy and Risk of Autism Spectrum Disorder" describes that maternal influenza vaccination does not affect autism.

Further researchers have also been carried out to find any link between the two. A particularly notable study researched the effects of thimerosal-containing vaccines on infant rhesus macaques.

The study also deduced through experiments if this resulted in autism-like behavior or neuropathology or not. It then evaluated and checked the impact of vaccines on autism or neuropathology. The results indicated that vaccination affected neither of the two.

Medical Xpress reported that an experiment was also conducted on animals which were given the vaccines similar to those the human infants receive. The result showed no correlation between autism and vaccines.

Studies have shown that autism is linked to changes in the neocortex of the brain. These alterations take place during pregnancy while the baby is developing.

Vaccines are given to the infant or the baby a lot later than this time, which further consolidates the opinion that vaccines do not affect the disorder autism. In fact, even the maternal vaccines do not effectuate any change on the chances of being diagnosed with autism.

With the advancement in science and technology, it has now been discovered that genes and epigenetic are related to autism. This means that vaccines cannot alter the probability of autism occurring, states WRDW12.

It is not possible, however, to form any opinion simply based on rumors. Key information and vital facts are necessary to understand science. One needs to stay in touch with scientific literature and peruse it carefully to know that autism and vaccines are not interconnected at all.
