MMR - autism link
« on: October 29, 2008, 03:48:57 AM »
I think this one is important, because a lot of people believe it, (I don't personally know whether it is true) but if it is bogosity then there are kids out there not being vaccinated because of it.
Youtube search showing quite a lot of videos
Maybe you could actually go through the evidence and see if it is bogosity. I'd find you an example video but I'm off to lectures in a few mins...

It's not true. There's no truth in it at all.

It's easy to find videos about this on the woo side. I'm trying to find videos on the skeptic's side. It'd be great if Steven Novella or someone like that did a video about it.

What is MMR?

It's the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine.
Warning: Student. What I say may set off bogon detectors!

In that case they are related because they both are medically cocerned, but that's just about it. I know this guy with Asperger's syndrome who never got MMR.
