Seth Mnookin: The Panic Virus

at 9:00 AM

Much of the research that links vaccines to autism and other developmental disorders has been discredited. But concerns still linger in the minds of some parents who have chosen to delay or avoid vaccinating their children against deadly diseases like measles and whooping cough. In his new book, "The Panic Virus: A True Story of Science, Medicine and Fear," author Seth Mnookin investigates the origins of the controversy over autism and vaccines, and the impacts it has had on public health.

Guests:

Seth Mnookin, author of "The Panic Virus: A True Story of Medicine, Science and Fear," writer for Vanity Fair Magazine, and former columnist for Newsweek
