Vaccinations do not increase the risk for autism

A new analysis of more than a Million children and shows that vaccination against measles, Mumps, rubella and chickenpox is not associated with an increased risk for autism go hand in hand: Diagnosed cases of autism occurred in vaccinated and non-vaccinated children in a similar number. The same applies to other diseases.

An international team of researchers has 138 studies and risks of vaccinations against measles, Mumps, rubella and varicella were evaluated. This showed that two vaccinations against measles, create a 96-percent protection against the pathogens. In the case of Mumps is after two vaccine with a 86-percent of the doses achieved protection, the number of cases of disease would fall from 7.4 per cent in the case of unvaccinated children, to about a percent. In the case of rubella, one dose of Vaccine prevents already to 89 per cent of infection, and the wind can be prevented smallpox ten years after vaccination to 95 percent.

What relates to the Impfrisiken, the scientists pay particular attention to autism. Reason false claims about an alleged connection between vaccinations and autism, which unsettled many of the parents were. The Review of the results from two studies with 1.194.764 children, however, showed no difference in the autism diagnosis in vaccinated and non-vaccinated children.

Vaccinations erhöhen the risk für other diseases

Two further studies, with more than a Million children also showed no evidence of a link between combined vaccines against measles, Mumps and rubella with inflammation of the brain, the skin or of the intestine, Crohn’s disease, intellectual development disorders, type 1 Diabetes, Asthma, hay fever, leukemia, Multiple sclerosis, gait disturbances, and bacterial or viral infections.

"In terms of safety, we know from studies around the world, that the risks of this diseases of for the prevention of the administered vaccines by far überwiegen", noted Italian epidemiologist Dr. Di Pietrantonj, who led the study.
