Autism Study Dismissed as Fraud

January 7, 2011 Reference to National Post article 

Within the last few years I have heard people afraid to allow their children to be vaccinated against once common childhood diseases as this 1998 study which claimed that the vaccinations caused autism. 

Now once and hopefully for all, this fear-mongering is over as explained in this article from Agence France-Presse with files from Reuters.

The article explains the so-called study was a fraud. No other studies have been able to replicate its results, the studies were drawn from a much too tiny group without a comparative control sample and based on parental recall which has been proven notoriously unreliable the British Medical Journal charged.

Hundreds of thousands of children in Britain are now unshielded against measles, mumps and rubella. Not just in Britain I may add as I first heard people here in North America being afraid to have their children vaccinated as well.

In 2008, measles was declared present in the wider population in the U.K.

I would ask "Why are we so eager to accept new ideas without checking out the scientific truth of them"?

When that happens hundreds if not thousands of lives could be at stake by following poorly researched "news" items which have NOT been proven.
