On discovering that MMR vaccine is being described as responsible for autism in some or the other way, the website showing the same has been given strict orders to remove the same claim, a recent report reveals.
It is being said by the Advertising Standards Authority that not only this, but all other claims related to the vaccine should be confiscated sooner as possible. Since, the same has no evidence and is misleading people on a wider scale.
As per the findings, the website named Babyjabs. co. uk has claimed that the vaccine use results in increased number of cases of autism as well as in the growth of the disease, with up to 10%. Also, while parents already are of the belief that the vaccine is to some extent responsible for their children's illness, the website strengthens the same.
It says that autistic children have vaccine-strain measles virus in their brains as well as in the gut. The website owners have now also been defending themselves saying a study conducted some time ago has proved all the assertions.
Even a book dubbed `The Truth about Vaccines' has been cited on the site that usually offers advice on vaccines to parents. But, as per the ASA, the MMR vaccine is not the reason for increased autism cases.
