Dec 15, 2015, AutismSpeaks.org: Top 10 autism research stories of 2015
What did our community think about these advances? To answer that question, here are our most-read and shared autism research stories of 2014.

#3 No MMR-autism link in large study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated kids
In April, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published the largest-ever study comparing autism rates among vaccinated versus unvaccinated children.
This is a comparison of children who received two doses of the MMR to those who only received one and still had all the other vaccines as well.
The only difference between the two groups was that if a child didn't receive the second MMR, they were considered unvaxxed.
