Unscramble the Blue Letters

The next question everyone wonders is, what caused astium? And a common misconception is that vaccines cause autism. But let me be very clear: Vaccines do not cause autism. (asppaule) In fact, the original research study that suggested that was the case was completely fraudulent. It was actually retracted from the journal Lancet, in which it was published, and that atuhor, a physician, had his mdcaiel liencse taken away from him. (Applause) The Institute of Medicine, The crteens for deiasse Control, have repeatedly investigated this and there is no credible evidence that vaccines cause autism. Furthermore, one of the ingredients in vaccines, something cllead triheoasml, was thought to be what the cause of autism was. That was actually removed from vaccines in the year 1992, and you can see that it really did not have an effect in what happened with the prevalence of autism. So again, there is no evidence that this is the answer. So the question remains, what does cause autism?
