MMR--the vaccine damage myth that won't die

MMR under fresh attack in spite of overwhelming evidence that it is not a causative factor in autism:

Asserting that there are thousands of cases of brain damage being ascribed to MMR might well have the effect of deterring parents from having the vaccination. It is of course well established that a measles outbreak could well cause severe brain damage as that is a recognised complication of measles infection.

Hopefully measles cases won't spike in occurrence, as pertussis seems to have done in some places stateside. Measles can cause severe complications, in particular to the very young, the old, and the immunocompromised.

God damn it. It doesn't cause autism, and even if it did, the number of children sick or dead from not taking their MMR shots would greatly outnumber those that develop autism. Y*8-}
