Reconfirming What We Already Knew About Vaccines and Autism

More renunciation of that hack-job study ... again

NPR threw this on its blog a few weeks ago. This time, it’s the Lancet—the (now verging on disgraced) medical journal that originally published the scientifically feeble paper linking autism and vaccines—that’s hopping on the bandwagon. (The wheels are made of facts. They roll down a path of empirical methodology.) The Lancet, most of the paper’s co-authors and just about every other scientist working today are in agreement: There is no discernible link between autism and vaccines, and the benefits of vaccines far outweigh any risks they may incur.
