More on MMR vs autism link (falsified data?)

A series of articles in the Times shows that the original 1998 Lancet paper by Andrew Wakefield that started the scare that MMR vaccination was linked to autism was based on falsified data. This is the latest in a series of scandals about this key research paper (which has not been successfully replicated) that led ten of the twelve authors to retract their publication. Though substantial evidence since 1998 contradicts a link between MMR and autism, measles are again becoming endemic in the UK, and are on the rise in the US as well, as herd immunity begins to fail.
