UK Autism-Vaccine Study was 'Fraud'

January 6, 2011 on Al-Jazeera English:
Thirteen years ago, Andrew Wakefield, a British doctor, published an article linking the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine to autism.

This caused a drop in the number of children vaccinated, and put many more at risk to measles, mumps and rubella.

Now, after a lengthy investigation, the British Medical Journal says Wakefield's report has been discredited.

He has been stripped of his medical licence and is being called a fraud.
