Recall bias is a real problem for autism research. The parents are not making it up. But they are subject to all sorts of subtle pressures to misremember and truly believe that they are faithfully remembering the past. “A review of each record showed that in 13 children the history given by the parents had changed after the extensive publicity about MMR vaccine and autism. Before the publicity the parents often reported concerns early in their child's life, usually before their first birthday; the current history for the same children recorded symptoms as developing only after MMR vaccination, in some cases shortly after.” (Taylor, Miller, Lingam, Andrews, Simmons & Stowe 2002. page 395) http://ukpmc.ac.uk/articlerender.cgi?tool=pubmed&pubmedid=11850369
