vaccination and autism paper retracted

The British medical journal The Lancet today officially retracted the article which it published in 1998 which very much helped launch the "vaccinations cause autism" meme.


  1. how is that for y'all? the paper being retracted?

  2. Brooke,

    It's interesting to me. I don't have strong beliefs one way or the other about it. But I know some people who do, and I'm okay with that =).

  3. good good. i suspect the news is much bigger in places like eugene & seattle than say.. provo (or even logan), utah. i knew quite a few anti-vaccine advocates in eugene, not any here.
