Much of the concern about childhood vaccinations originated in a study reported in 1998 in the respected British medical journal Lancet. But Lancet itself has driven a dagger through the heart of the study.
The study purported to link vaccinations for measles, mumps and rubella to autism and bowel disease. However, in 2010, Lancet retracted it.
Ten of the co-authors had renounced the study’s findings several years before, and Lancet said it never should have published the study in the first place.
We fully retract this paper from the published record, Lancet said.
