Concerns: Vaccines do not cause autism. There has been a great deal of research on this subject.

No: The adult stomach doc who published a fraudulent study suggesting autism's relation to vaccines lost his medical license and left Britain in shame.Newer research suggests an internal chromosome based origin to many cases of autism present at conception.All of this is confusing, but this and other vaccines are safe when used appropriately.
