Due to the necessity for more extreme cost cutting measures the following changes have now been made to the posting of the news:

1.    Medical journal articles will not normally be posted. However, a link to a journal’s Table of Contents will be posted when it comes out and can be accessed here or from the "Medical Journals" button on the left.

2.    Other than a few of what we consider to be the most important ones, blog articles will no longer be posted in “all the news”. Click here, however, for the complete list of blogs or on the button to the left.

3.    Autism and health articles that are not related to vaccination will no longer be regularly posted in the news.

4.    We will no longer be doing the calendar or updating the Wakefield page.

5.    Follow me on Twitter for more "up to the minute" as well as health and autism news.

6.    We will no longer be checking for duplicate postings.
