95,000 kids, 20 years of science - no connection between Autism and MMR

I thought I'd create a new thread for this rathe than tag it on the end of the existing 10 page - JAMA has published a study of about 95,000 children with and without siblings with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and with and without having had MMR vaccine - the (unsurprising) conclusion:

Conclusions and Relevance In this large sample of privately insured children with older siblings, receipt of the MMR vaccine was not associated with increased risk of ASD, regardless of whether older siblings had ASD. These findings indicate no harmful association between MMR vaccine receipt and ASD even among children already at higher risk for ASD.
Saw this on another forum, read the abstract. Now, one would think mites the definitive study that will destroy the antivaxxers. That would be in a more perfect world. Hopefully though it helps those looking for info.
