Study concludes NO link between vaccination and autism

Even though the original study that found the supposed link between vaccines and autism has been found to be fraudulent, some people will just not let it go. Vaccinate your children, don't vaccinate them... it's not my business. BUT what I feel is my business would be to spread education about this topic whenever I can. So, here's an actual "meta-study" on the topic that concludes that vaccines do NOT cause autism. Feel free to debate the topic, education and discussion about this is very important.

    well that's good to know, but do they have any other theory as to what may cause it ?

    From everything I have read it's not the cause so much that is the focus. Identification is on the rise where ten or twenty years ago the diagnostic criteria only really focused on the classic autism children. Those are the ones with the most debilitating effects of autism. High functioning autism and aspergers were your "quirky" kids who never got a diagnosis.

    As for the cause, there's still research being done. There's the possibility that it's environmental but the research is pointing more towards the cause being genetic.

      could there be a possibility of it being caused by an accident or some ttpe or trauma while in utero?
