Autism's False Prophets in Newsweek

Autism's False ProphetsNewsweek recently published “Stomping Through a Medical Minefield,” which focuses on Paul Offit and his recent book, Autism’s False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine, and the Search for a Cure.

The article discusses the book as well as how Offit has often found himself at the center of the vaccine-autism controversy. Newsweek has also posted a video interview with Paul Offit along with a video of Kristina Chew, a parent of a child with autism and the author of the very good blog Autism Vox. Kristina Chew talks about her own initial concerns that vaccines might have caused her son’s autism but after doing reading and research concluded that genetics was the cause.
