I have included Episode 25 of Books and Ideas in the feed for the Brain Science Podcast because it is a discussion of the alleged connection between vaccines and autism. In this episode I interview Dr. Paul Offit, author of "Autism's False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine, and the Search for a Cure." Despite overwhelming scientific evidence against a relationship between vaccines and autism, vaccine opponents continue to frighten and confuse parents. Meanwhile we are beginning to see the re-emergence of preventable and potentially life-threatening diseases among the increasing numbers of unvaccinated children.Dr. Offit's book provides a thorough discussion of the science and politics of the controversy. I hope this interview with motivate you to read "Autism's False Prophets" and to share it with others.
