Autism and MMR - more evidence that there is no link

The link between autism and the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine has been extensively debunked and new research from the NHS Information Centre in England has added to the evidence that there is no link. The centre surveyed 7,500 adults and found that 1% of them (1.8% of men and 0.2% of women) had an autism spectrum disorder. This was in line with the figures for children suggesting that there has been no rise in autism since the introduction of the MMR jab in the early 1990s.
