Main Topic: In this episode of Between Your Ears, we tackle the myth that vaccines cause autism. Autism is a neurological disorder that begins before a child is even born as their brain develops in the uterus. In 1998, Dr. Andrew Wakefield released results of a study in The Lancet that claimed that he had proven that autism is caused by the combined measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine. However, in February 2010, The Lancet retracted his article, stating that Dr. Wakefield had violated numerous ethical and scientific rules. Other than Dr. Wakefield, no one else has been able to demonstrate the link between autism and the MMR vaccine. The reality is that not vaccinating your children may expose them to far more real and dangerous risks.
