I was always interested in the Wakefield affair. In fact, as medicine progresses we find many things that ten years ago might have been thrown out ARE true. In my own life I have met parents that are adamant MMR vaccinations caused their children’s autism
The Furlong family’s grand children all received Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccinations separately, just in case. It’s only the cost that stops Governments doing that too – do you think they are actually worried about our health? It’s really about how much we COST.
From the British Medical Journal Editorial (link above) quote – “Over the following decade, epidemiological studies consistently found no evidence of a link between the MMR vaccine and autism”
From Here “I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”
