MMR vaccines unsafe and manufacturers being sued in Europe

A report in the Sunday times in London on January 6th 2002 says that the MMR vaccine may cause arthritis, diarrhoea, ocular palsies (eye disorders which can lead to blindness), and Guillain-Barre syndrome (an immune system condition which can lead to paralysis).

This vaccine is a popular one amongst US based doctors, and is apparently deemed 'safe' by the FDA however many thousands of parents in Europe disagree and have a multi million dollar COST law suit in progress now to protect other children from suffering the way they believe their children suffered because of MMR.
