Antivaxxers Funded A Study To Prove That Vaccinations Cause Autism – Here’s What They Found

There is pretty much no expert in this world who believes that vaccines have anything to do with the onset of autism in children, yet advocacy groups still exist that tout a study which has since been retracted due to being based on falsified evidence. These people still persist despite there being no evidence that vaccines do cause autism in children, along with growing evidence that proves it doesn’t.

In an attempt to bring some actual facts to their cause, anti-vaxxer groups continue to fund numerous studies, hoping that they’ll get some concrete proof that there is a link between vaccines and autism in children. Hilariously, this backfired, the organisation whose job it is to raise awareness to how various forms of exposure will bring out the neurodevelopmental condition has helped fund a study which yet again shows no link between the two.

Over the course of ten years, the organisations provided various universities and other research institutions with around $250,000 in the hope that the decade long investigation into how a number of baby macaques reacted to a course of vaccines that would be given as standard to a child. Once the study was concluded, their research showed that they saw no brain or behavioral changes in the animals, showing that more than likely, vaccines have no link whatsoever with autism. Unsurprisingly, the anti-vaxxers are claiming there’s something fishy about the results, believing that the study shows something very different to the original pilot study and interim progress reports that were provided. In response, many have countered that a vaccine will likely cause responses in biology, but this doesn’t mean that they’re in anyway linked to childhood autism.

Where do you stand on the vaccination of children? Do you stand with the anti-vaxxers, believing that we’re just giving our children too many injections too you? Or are you on the side of science and healthcare professionals, seeing that vaccines are a brilliant way to stop the spread of disease among the population, especially those who are more week or susceptible? Let us know and sound off in the comments below.
