U.K. group devoted to helping parents customize appropriate vaccination schedules for their children has been targeted by British authorities for posting scientifically-backed warnings about the dangers of the combination measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine, also known as MMR. BBC News reports that BabyJabs.co.uk has been ordered by the U.K.'sAdvertising Standards Authority (ASA) to pull information from its website that merely explains the known scientific links between MMR and autism.

That's an interesting interpretation of the story. You can read about it a bit differently on the BBC news website:

A website offering parents advice on vaccines has been ordered to remove information about the MMR jab after claiming it could be linked to autism.

Babyjabs.co.uk said the three-in-one jab may be causing "up to 10%" of autism in children in the UK.

But the Advertising Standards Authority ruled the claim was misleading and must not appear again
