    MMR Paracetamol & Autism

    Not sure how widely this is known but most of my friends were unaware of it so i thought i would post.

    There is a new study being done to try discover whether paracetamol given after the MMR is associated with autism and preliminary results suggets there is a link.

    Here is a link to the report

    http://www.aut.sagepub.com/cgi/conte...tract/12/3/293

    I know there are many different views and opinions about the MMR and autism on this forum and I am not interested in starting a debate on the issue. I am also not suggesting myself that there is a link between autism and the mmr and paracetemol use, I know this is only a preliminary study and I have no idea of the legitimacy of the research.

    I however found this interesting and thought some of you may prefer to read it, and be given a choice, than not to know.

    thanks!

    this MMR & autism issue is really frustrating. shall i bring my kid for MMR vaccine? shall i give her any painkiller when there's reaction? is there any clinics in hk that can offer 3 different injections instead of a 3-in-1? i still have 4 months to research that.

    Thank you milkmonster the second link you posted is the one I tried to post but for some reason it missed a few letters and replaced them with full stops - no idea why.


    Sorry guys I'm not into getting into a debate on the whole MMR / autism thing - I posted this as a 'for info only' thing.
