No link between Vaccine, Autism

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
link between vaccine, autism".  Reuters 11/7/02:  Autism said to
show up just before 2nd birthday, just when they get MMR vaccine.  Looked
at all children born in Denmark, 91-98 and conclude it is coincidence that
autism diagnosis, symptoms occur at about time of vaccination.  Found 316
with autism and 422 with similar conditions out of 537,303.  Such
diagnoses less common among those vaccinated than those not vaccinated. 
Difference between the vacc and the not-vacc groups was not stat
significant.  The rise of autism and autism-like diagnoses in California
and Denmark is an artifact of the DSM and psychiatric labeling, also due to
efforts of disease advocacy organizations. ]
