Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 15, 2010
The preponderance of autism research shows no correlation between vaccines and autism disorders, according to the newly published Encyclopedia of Autism, 2009: An encyK Resource for Parents & Professionals. By retracting the article that first reported the Wakefield study, which kicked off the controversy in 1998, The Lancet has strengthened current research on autism spectrum disorders.
“Unfortunately, the idea that vaccines cause autism is already out there and the damage has already been done,” said Robert Field, professor of Health Management and Policy at the Drexel University School of Public Health in Philadelphia, in a report by ABC News Medical Unit February 3.
But as the new autism encyclopedia details in more than 700 pages, the reality is much more complicated than a single autism cause. The Encyclopedia of Autism, 2009: An encyK Resource for Parents & Professionals covers this complexity with new studies of autism spectrum disorders, including poor social interactions, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors. Scientists describe autism treatments, diets, studies on Asperger’s syndrome, diagnostic tools, and stem cell research.
