MMR & Autism

Remember that news from a while back? If so, or you've heard about it you should really check out Deer on Autism, Vaccination, and Scientific Fraud (from EconTalk - Economics podcasts for daily life.)

Investigative journalist Brian Deer talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about Deer's seven years of reporting and legal issues surrounding the 1998 article in The Lancet claiming that the MMR vaccine causes autism and bowel problems.

There is a 1 hour podcast, some key excerpts, and links to more reading.
