Lancet retracts autism paper

The original paper linking autism to MMR vaccines has been withdrawn by the journal that published it in 1998. 10 of the 13 original authors had withdrawn from it in 2004. A few days ago, the General Medical Council, Britain's medical regulator, said the study had been performed "in an unethical and irresponsible manner" and with "callous disregard" for the children's best medical interest.

Can we put the autism and vaccine myth to rest now?
