Court says measles vaccine not to blame for autism



Finally, today, the U.S. Court of Claims ruled that combined measles-mumps-rubella vaccines are not to blame for children's autism. The special panel of judges found, as they had to, that the scientific evidence was overwhelmingly contrary to the 5000-odd plaintiff parents' claims -- and backed years of science that found no risk.

Hopefully this tragic search for reasons by the aggrieved parents will now change directions.
