It looks as though Elle MacPherson is banging fraudulent quack and disgraced ex-doctor Andy Wakefield. The benefits of being an anti-vax celebrity clearly transcend the financial, although it looks like both parties are poised to make bank on this here union. :yup:

Another Study Shows Tdap Vaccine Not Linked to Autism Risk

Quote:
The study assessed more than 80,000 children born between 2011 and 2014 at Kaiser Permanente Southern California hospitals.

Children of mothers who received the Tdap vaccine while pregnant were no more likely to develop autism than children of mothers who did not receive the vaccine while pregnant.

In fact, the prevalence of autism was slightly lower in children of Tdap-vaccinated mothers.
Surprise! Another large-cohort study not finding a link between vaccination and autism.

Here is information on a more likely factor, among many factors:
Autism and DDT: What one million pregnancies can — and can’t — reveal
Quote:
Mothers with high levels of the pesticide DDT in their blood during pregnancy are more likely to bear children who develop autism, according to a study of blood samples from more than one million pregnant women in Finland.

The World Health Organization estimates that globally, one in 160 children has autism. Any case of autism is likely due to a number of factors, including genetics and other environmental exposures.

Although the authors stress that the findings do not prove that autism is caused by DDT — whose use has been banned in many countries for decades over concerns about its effects on wildlife— it is the first such association using a direct measure of exposure to the pesticide. Researchers who investigate links between environment and disease say that further studies are needed to determine the mechanism, if any, by which DDT exposure could trigger autism
.
A couple notes: DDT is still in use in South Africa- homes are sprayed- as well DDT may be used outside the US for coffee and mango production. Half-life is 2-15 years.

NYT:Russian Trolls Used Vaccine Debate to Sow Discord, Study Finds
Quote:
While the spammer and malware accounts mostly disseminated anti-vaccine messages, the Russia-linked ones played both sides.

Most of the anti-vaccine tweets repeated well-known but long-discredited rumors, such as those that vaccines cause autism or contain dangerous amounts of mercury. Others accused pharmaceutical companies of caring only about profits, not children.

Pro-vaccine tweets from the same accounts argued that vaccines saved lives. Some said they should be mandatory. Some were insulting, such as “You can’t fix stupidity. Let them die from measles, and I’m for #vaccination.”
...>snip<...
Other tweets promoted class hostility, saying the elite get “clean vaccines” while normal people did not.

Yet others appeared designed to appeal to the audience for conspiracy websites like Infowars. One claimed that vaccines were part of the world domination plan of the Illuminati secret sect.

For reals! That's logic chopping (or something)! :freakout:

All that matters here is the coherence theory of truth: X is true to the extent X coheres with anti-vaxxers' existing views.

Anti-vaccers thrilled as measles epidemic continues to spread across Europe

And because there's no such thing as too many reminders of how thoroughly Trump trolled the anti-vaxxers:
