Study Linking Vaccines to Autism an “Elaborate Fraud”

[The study didn’t just have incorrect findings or bad data, it was an actual *fraud*, purposefully making stuff up][link]. The doctor has been stripped of his license and his study discredited, but the damage is done:

>In the United States, more cases of measles were reported in 2008 than in any other year since 1997, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 90% of those infected had not been vaccinated or their vaccination status was unknown, the CDC reported.

The whole thing is absolutely disgusting.
