Vaccine Scandal is in the News Again

According to a report on MedPage Today, the High Court of Justice in London has cleared the name of one of the authors of the fraudulent vaccine-autism-link paper published in 1998 by Lancet (and formally retracted by that journal only recently).

One of the other authors, Andrew Wakefield, remains under a cloud. It is amazing how much damage one person has done.

Update March 13: There is an article on an Austin website about the libel suit filed by Wakefield against the reporters who outed him. This might be funny (if pathetic) if it were not for the real harm that has been done in the world.

And, much, much more here in an article on the website of The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism.
