Why do some folks think that the CDC lost a lawsuit and were made to say that they had no studies to support the consensus idea that vaccines are not associated with autism?
The usual suspects…
Did the CDC Concede That There Are No Studies to Support Claim That Vaccines Given in First 6 Months of Life Do Not Cause Autism?
So what is this all about?
This time, when the CDC should be using all of their time and resources handling the COVID-19 pandemic, Del Bigtree‘s ICAN hit them with a 36 page complaint, a lawsuit to get studies proving vaccines don’t cause autism.
Interestingly, it seems like even folks in anti-vaccine groups have gotten used to the tricks that ICAN has been playing with these FOIA lawsuits and they understand that this really isn’t any kind of win.
Vaccines still aren’t associated with autism!
When it comes to autism, vaccines are the one suspected culprit that the CDC claims to have exhaustively investigated, yet the CDC could not provide a single study to support that any of the vaccines given during the first six months of life do not cause autism.Del Bigtree
And if it is just vaccines given during the first six months of life, then why wasn’t more autism diagnosed in the 1950s and 1960s, when kids already got a lot of doses of vaccines when they were infants?
Also, if it is vaccines in the first six months of life, then why wasn’t that found in this study that was submitted by the CDC to ICAN, which they either didn’t read or didn’t understand?
“We found no evidence indicating an association between exposure to antibody-stimulating proteins and polysaccharides contained in vaccines during the first 2 years of life and the risk of acquiring ASD, AD, or ASD with regression. We also detected no associations when exposures were evaluated as cumulative exposure from birth to 3 months, from birth to 7 months, or from birth to 2 years, or as maximum exposure on a single day during those 3 time periods. These results indicate that parental concerns that their children are receiving too many vaccines in the first 2 years of life or too many vaccines at a single doctor visit are not supported in terms of an increased risk of autism.”DeStafano on Increasing Exposure to Antibody-Stimulating Proteins and Polysaccharides in Vaccines Is Not Associated with Risk of Autism
Although ICAN complains that this study is just about antigen exposure, most folks will understand that those antigens come from vaccines!!!
And it isn’t even the only study to prove that there is no association between “general vaccinations” and autism.
“In this study, we could not find the evidence that MMR vaccination increases the risk of ASD onset. The present results support the findings from the previous case–control studies conducted in Caucasian populations. Furthermore, we could not find any evidences that other types of vaccines or a combined effect of multiple vaccines was associated with ASD onset. Therefore, this study did not support the theory that vaccinations should be avoided to reduce the risk of ASD onset. We should be more concerned about acquiring infectious diseases by avoiding vaccinations.”Uno on The Combined Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Vaccines and the Total Number of Vaccines Are Not Associated With Development of Autism Spectrum Disorder: The First Case-Control Study in Asia
The 2012 study, The Combined Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Vaccines and the Total Number of Vaccines Are Not Associated With Development of Autism Spectrum Disorder: The First Case-Control Study in Asia, looked at MMR, measles, mumps, rubella, DPT, polio, B-encephalitis, and BCG vaccines and found no association with autism.
Again, vaccines aren’t associated with autism.
