• Peter Behner, Commentary (1/6/2011) Why the Constitution — and What It Means — Matters.
• Fox News (1/6/2011) Study Linking Vaccine to Autism Was 'Elaborate Fraud,' Journal Says.
• Yahoo (1/6/2011) God was behind Big Bang, universe no accident: Pope.
• Brian Deer, British Medical Journal (1/5/2011) Secrets of the MMR scare: How the case against the MMR vaccine was fixed.
How the link was fixed:
The Lancet paper was a case series of 12 child patients; it reported a proposed "new syndrome" of enterocolitis and regressive autism and associated this with MMR as an "apparent precipitating event." But in fact:
Three of nine children reported with regressive autism did not have autism diagnosed at all. Only one child clearly had regressive autism
Despite the paper claiming that all 12 children were "previously normal," five had documented pre-existing developmental concerns
Some children were reported to have experienced first behavioral symptoms within days of MMR, but the records documented these as starting some months after vaccination
In nine cases, unremarkable colonic histopathology results—noting no or minimal fluctuations in inflammatory cell populations—were changed after a medical school "research review" to "non-specific colitis"
The parents of eight children were reported as blaming MMR, but 11 families made this allegation at the hospital. The exclusion of three allegations—all giving times to onset of problems in months—helped to create the appearance of a 14 day temporal link
Patients were recruited through anti-MMR campaigners, and the study was commissioned and funded for planned litigation.
