Study Linking Autism And MMR Vaccine Retracted

In 1998, the Lancet Medical Journal published a report by a British Doctor that linked the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine with Autism.

Doctors say the paper is one of the biggest reasons parents have increasingly declined vaccinations for their children. But the Lancet has now issued a press release stating "it has become clear that several elements of the paper... are incorrect."

Last week, a British disciplinary panel ruled the original author had shown a "callous disregard" for children.
