Antenatal antioxidants to avert autism?

In the first part of a special BMJ series, Brian Deer exposes the bogus data behind claims that launched a worldwide scare over the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine, and reveals how the appearance
Balancing benefits and harms in public health prevention programmes mandated by governments
TLDR
Even when scientific evidence for a preventive health intervention is strong, many barriers exist to population-wide implementation and it is important to understand why this is the case.
No effect of MMR withdrawal on the incidence of autism: a total population study.
TLDR
It is found that MMR vaccination is most unlikely to be a main cause of autism spectrum disorders, that it cannot explain the rise over time in the incidence of ASD, and that withdrawal of MMR in countries where it is still being used cannot be expected to lead to a reduction in the frequency of ASD.
Measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and bowel problems or developmental regression in children with autism: population study
TLDR
Findings provide no support for an MMR associated “new variant” form of autism with developmental regression and bowel problems, and further evidence against involvement of MMR vaccine in the initiation of autism.

A retrospective cohort study of all children born in Denmark from January 1991 through December 1998 finds that vaccination against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) is a cause of autism.
A population-based study of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and autism.
TLDR
This study provides strong evidence against the hypothesis that MMR vaccination causes autism in children born in Denmark from January 1991 through December 1998.
Reporting of MMR evidence in professional publications: 1988–2007
TLDR
Examining how journals and magazines disseminate research evidence and guidance on best practice to health professionals by aligning commentaries on measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR) evidence in journals with key events in the MMR controversy suggests a period of neutrality may reflect a professional response to uncertainty by holding back until consensus emerges.
