The research also found that vaccines are not to blame for autism in certain groups of children who may be more susceptible to getting autism - such as siblings of children with autism or kids of mothers who smoked during pregnancy. They followed kids from age one through the end of August 2013. "The dangers of not vaccinating includes a resurgence in measles which we are seeing signs of today in the form of outbreaks". "In all cases, we have concluded that there is no link between the MMR vaccine and autism", SSI senior researcher Anders Hviid, who led the study in partnership with Professor Mads Melbye, said.

Assertions that there was a connection between autism and the MMR vaccine led to an increase in parents choosing not to vaccinate their children against diseases such as measles during the 2000s. The team also showed that even those children considered more susceptible to the condition due to family history and other risk factors were not at higher risk of the disease.

Still, the study adds to a large body of evidence showing that vaccines don't cause autism, writes Dr. Saad Omer of Emory University in Atlanta, co-author of an accompanying editorial. According to CNN, "Wakefield had been compensated by a law firm intending to sue manufacturers of the MMR vaccine, and in 2010, he lost his medical license".

Subsequent studies have been unable to repeat the same results of Wakefield's study and have found no link between vaccines and autism. Using the Danish health registry allowed them to compare a cohort of vaccinated children against un-vaccinated children, definitively showing that those who did receive MMR were not at a higher risk of autism.

That paper, which included just 12 children, was later retracted because of errors, but myths around the vaccine continue to be shared.

Since Jan. 1, there have been at least 206 confirmed cases of measles across 11 states, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Probably not. A number of studies over the last decade have looked at various vaccines, including those which contain the mercury-based thimerosal, and found no association between autism and vaccines - a handful of research papers suggest otherwise, but the idea largely survives thanks to a fraudulent paper from 1998, the wilds of social media and a pervasive sense of mistrust.
