It's About Time

It just amazes me how one study, done on a sample size of a mere 12 children, and conducted so irresponsibly, could cause such mass hysteria. It just blows my mind how viral this ridiculous so-called study became. The recent retraction is 11.5 years too late.

I am hoping that now, the public would not rely on their critical medical information from sources as a former Playboy model with no scientific background, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

"The medical journal The Lancet on Tuesday retracted a controversial 1998 paper that linked the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine to autism.

"The study subsequently had been discredited, and last week, the lead author, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, was found to have acted unethically in conducting the research."
