MMR & leukemia (Letter, Daily Mail, Jan 25,2001)

MY DAUGHTER had the MMR booster at four and her arm immediately swelled up and she started to feel unwell. Within six weeks, she was diagnosed as having leukaemia, and the doctors we spoke to accepted that the MMR jab was probably the trigger for the disease by overloading her immune system — though they believe she may have been already susceptible to the illness.

There is no hard research available yet on this subject, but I believe parents should be allowed to choose the single jabs if they wish.
