Gosh a report in a mainstream publication about fears over links between mitochondrial dysfunction, vaccines and autism.

It seems that a high proportion of the 5000 children involved in the US litigation at the Omnibus Autism Proceedings also suffer from mitochondrial dysfunction.

Thanks Beachcomber. Had a long break and missed this -- I saw it elsewhere but can't believe it made a tabloid health lead.

There used to be so much more of this about: I was looking at some of my old research and cuttings, and noticed how much more challenging to the received wisdom health journalists used to be. Not any more, it seems.

Perhaps this new PCC decision will help a bit.
