"Hidden records show MMR truths" Yesterday at 5:09pmA new investigation by the British General Medical Council (GMC) shows that Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the first doctor to suggest that the MMR vaccine may cause autism 1998, manipulated and hid data regarding the children he tested. The release of the children’s medical records show that Dr. Wakefield hid the fact that some of the children had exhibited signs of autism prior to receiving the MMR. The fallout from this study has caused immunization rates in the UK to plummet from 92% to 80% at the peak of Britain’s alarm. Dr. Wakefield may have his medical license revoked, pending the GMC’s decision.

Last week, Alison Tepper-Singer, Autism Speaks’ executive vice president of communications, resigned over a difference of opinion on the organization’s policy on autism research, which has left open the idea that vaccines cause autism. Singer said that, “Dozens of credible scientific studies have exonerated vaccines as a cause of autism. I believe we must devote limited funding to more promising areas of autism research.” A full interview with Ms. Singer has been posted on Newsweek's site, which can be found here: http://www.newsweek.com/id/179998/page/1 More Turmoil Over Vaccines and Autism | Newsweek Health Source: www.newsweek.com A top exec quits a major autism group because she doesn't think vaccines cause the disorder.
