Danish researchers have used 5 025 754 person-years of follow-up to address a long-standing matter of what has been an issue of contention: during the follow-up, 6517 children were diagnosed with autism, at an incidence rate, 129.7 per 100 000 person-years. Comparing children who did receive MMR vaccinations were compared with unvaccinated children. NO INCREASED RISK of an autism diagnosis could be detected, with for the whole cohort or in subgroups of children. Despite the vocal efforts of anti-vax groups, it would appear that the science has been settled, and children can be protected without fear of this matter requiring further consideration.
