They issued a new statement in January. No one noticed.
The American Academy of Pediatrics actually makes no firm statement anymore on the link in its official stance, but merely comments on one segment of the research. This is their discussion on the topic:
“Over the past decade, questions have been raised regarding a relationship between autism and vaccines. Along with general safety concerns, parents have wondered about:
• too many vaccines overwhelming the immune system;
• the measles, mumps, rubella combination vaccine (MMR); and
• the preservative thimerosal, which was never present in MMR but was present in several vaccines used in the 1990s, but has since been removed from all routinely used childhood vaccines with the exception of flu.
Research has been conducted on all of these topics, and the studies continue to find vaccines to be a safe and effective way to prevent serious disease. This document lists those studies and provides links to the publications to allow parents and all those who administer or recommend vaccines to read the evidence for themselves. These studies do not show any link between autism and MMR vaccine, thimerosal, multiple vaccines given at once, fevers or seizures. This is not an exhaustive list- vaccine safety studies are constantly being conducted and published and may not be reflected here.”
Note the last two sentences admit that while the studies they list show no link, that they admit that they do not list all the applicable studies.
Note that they do not list any of the papers that I have cited that do demonstrate links between vaccines and autism. They have simply cherry
picked the research.
Note that they use the authors and papers at the center of the current scandals, published by DeStefano, Boyle, Yeargen-Allsopp, Thompson, Thorsen and Madsen.
These are those other papers that they mention. They all give evidence that vaccines cause autism.
