MMR and autism? Don't mention it - you could be banned

You're not even allowed to suggest that the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine causes autism any more

You're not even allowed to suggest that the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine causes autism any more. One website that has continued to make the claim has been forced to withdraw it from its website.
The site - babyjabs.co.uk, which offers advice to parents about vaccinations - has had to remove the claim from its site following a complaint to the UK's Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). It had said that the three-in-one jab may be causing "up to 10 per cent" of autism cases in the UK.
The ASA has ruled that the statement is misleading, and was warned not to repeat the claim, nor any other claims about the MMR vaccine.
Although the site has removed the claim, it has pointed out that an Italian court recently ruled that the vaccine had caused autism in a nine-year-old boy.
