MMR

The BBC were bleating this morning about another promised measles epidemic (the last one they said was going to happen didn’t, I wonder if this one will) and navel gazing about the number of children that aren’t getting vaccinated.

What they failed to mention was that it was the BBC was one of the media outlets that made such a big thing about the scientifically dubious and widely disputed claims that MMR vaccines could cause autism in children that has resulted in so many children not being given the MMR vaccination.

    mumps hurts, i had it as a kid and it was bloody sore, my whole heid was like a big fat pink hairy melon (

    I think the BBC starts lots of rumours, its just that most of them dont get a life of their own

    hi wonko
    it may be a coincidence but if you google “autism somali” you may find why the government and department of heath are running scared.
    seems like minisota has a lot of somali kids with autism (1 in 25) .
    the parents who know nothing about the whole autism mmr mercury thing are saying that thier childern changed after vaccination and they have never seen autism in somalia.
    great blog btw

    ‘http://www.hiiraan.com/news2/2008/July/a_mysterious_connection_autism_and_minneapolis_somali_children.aspx’

    Tellingly, the sentence “Research has not shown it’s related to shots or toxins — kids who haven’t received immunizations have the same baseline [for autism] as those who have,” said HCMC’s Maroushek.” seems to imply that it may be something else other than MMR
