New American research shows that there could be a link between the controversial MMR triple vaccine and autism and bowel disease in children.

Last night Dr Wakefield said: 'This new study confirms what we found in British children and again with Professor O'Leary.

'This research proves that in the gastrointestinal tract of a number of children who have been diagnosed with regressive autism, there is evidence of measles virus.

'What it means is that the study done earlier by Dr Wakefield and published in 1998 is correct.

Did you know that a substantial percentage of children diagnosed with ASD test positive for Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease?

Informal studies show that at least 20-30% of children diagnosed with autism also test positive for Lyme Disease.

At the time, Dr Wakefield said that although they had not proved a link between MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and autism, there was cause for concern and the Government should offer the option single vaccines - instead of only MMRs - until more research had been done.

The paper - and the confused interpretation of its findings - caused uproar and led to many parents withdrawing their co-operation for the triple jab.

That study didn’t draw any conclusions about specifically what it means to find measles virus in the gut, but the implication is it may be coming from the MMR vaccine.
