Journal recants publication of autism study

For those who read my Small Times column on this topic, here's an update via The Seattle Times.

Another update from BBC News:

    Sir Liam Donaldson, England's chief medical officer, accused Dr Andrew Wakefield of peddling "poor science". He said the 1998 study was flawed and has been criticised by "independent experts around the world".

    His comments came as the General Medical Council prepared to open an investigation into the way Dr Wakefield carried out his study.

    Meanwhile, Prime Minister Tony Blair has urged parents to have their children vaccinated.
