Yet another study finds no evidence that vaccines are linked to autism

The Los Angeles Times reports that a new study published in PNAS revealed that “multiple vaccines containing the preservative thimerosal … resulted in none of the key brain or behavioral changes linked to autism.” The study also “administered a wide range of vaccines including the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine — which never contained thimerosal — to rhesus macaques” and “found no evidence of changes in brains or behavior that would implicate either the much-maligned MMR vaccine or a combination of many vaccines as a cause of or contributor to autism.”

The results cast further doubt on the supposed link between autism and vaccines, “which has fueled widespread resistance to vaccinations.”
