The three researchers behind the 1998 link between vaccines and autism are charged with deliberately skewing the results of their research, the Times of London writes. The paper re-researched the study—based on just eight children—and found that the authors deliberately ignored the data that showed that there was no connection, which is to say they relied only on the parents’ faulty recollections of their children’s health histories, choosing to disregard the medical records which proved otherwise. (Most notably the parents’ claim that their children were just fine until they had their MMR shot, though the medical records showed that the physicians had raised concerns of developmental problems with the parents beforehand.) The General Medical Council, the UK’s medical regulation agency, has brought the doctors up on ethics charges. They may lose their licenses.
