A new study claims to show there is no link between autism and the Measles, Mumps and Rubella, or MMR, vaccine. That is not the view of another expert who has looked closely at the study.
The study was published in the Journal of Pediatrics and authored in part by employees of the Rand Corporation. Dr. Theresa Deisher of Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute says people are given the impression that 20,000 papers were reviewed when it was really only 67, and many of those did not deal with the autism link.
“In fact, when you actually read the study, only one paper was reviewed in the Pediatrics publication that is concerned with an association between the MMR vaccine, and autism,” she says.
She adds there are problems with the one paper that was included, and experts are overlooking the fact that the work is highlighting vaccines produced by animal cell lines, which are not used in this country.
“The other studies that we focused on here at Sound Choice, the data from the U.S. federal government and from other governmental agencies in other countries, is all data related to vaccines manufactured from aborted fetal cells,” she tells OneNewsNow.
Deischer's research has shown a growing incidence of autism after aborted fetal cell vaccines were put in use. She adds it's sad because the safer vaccine using animal cell lines is available.
