Lancet Formally Withdraws Autism/Vaccine Article
For quite some time now, there has been claims that autism in children has been linked to vaccines, namely the MMR vaccine. The reason for this, at least in part, was an article in the Lancet. That article has been formally withdrawn.
The scientific evidence since 1998 has been completely unable to find any link between autism and vaccines. Of course, this wont persuade any of the advocacy groups and the anti-vaccination movement will continue apace.
