Book review

Review of a new book on how the false link between autism and vaccines came to be (warning, the article is on Salon. You may have to go through an ad.)

The review gives a brief history of how the scare came to be and how thoroughly it has all been debunked. It also mentions how some of the supporters of the link have resorted to stranger and stranger ideas about why Autism hasn't decreased now that the supposed causes have been removed.
