+ - The Lancet recants study linking autism to vaccine->

Submitted by JamJam
JamJam (785046) writes "The Lancet, a major British medical journal, has retracted a flawed study linking the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine to autism and bowel disease. British surgeon and medical researcher Andrew Wakefield and his colleagues originally released their study in 1998. Since then 10 of Wakefield's 13 co-authors renounced the study's conclusions and The Lancet has said it should never have published the research. Wakefield now faces being stripped of his right to practice medicine in Britain. The vaccine-autism debate should now end."
