Doctor Andrew Wakefield: Hero or Quack?

The answer to the question of whether Dr. Andrew Wakefield is a hero or an enemy to modern science depends largely on one’s perspective and training. Dr. Wakefield, a practicing British gastroenterologist, dared to publicly question the safety of the MMR vaccination in 1998.

Wakefield observed that his pediatric gastroenterology patients suffered specific inflammatory bowel issues and developed symptoms of autism following the MMR vaccine. Wakefield was not anti-vaccine, but simply recommended single vaccinations as opposed to the combination MMR vaccine, which included three separate vaccinations.

Wakefield suffered an extremely negative and strong reaction by his peers, medical groups and governing board, and the media. His advocacy ultimately caused him to lose his medical license and reputation among many of his peers.

Recently, Dr. Wakefield has directed the documentary Vaxxed, which attempts to again publicly uncover the dangers of the MMR vaccine and its connections to autism. Wakefield has become a champion for the autism community, who stand behind his dedication and work to help the growing number of children suffering from autism and related bowel disease.

Wakefield also has many supporters within the holistic health community who recognize the tremendous work he has done to help those suffering from autism and gastrointestinal disease. [1,2]

Who Exactly Is Dr. Andrew Wakefield, And What Happened To Him?

Dr. Andrew Wakefield is a gastroenterologist who witnessed the connection between the MMR vaccination with autism and specific gastrointestinal tract health issues. He recommended that his patients get the vaccinations separately instead of receiving the MMR vaccine as a combination vaccination. He did not initially speak out against vaccinations.

In 1998, Wakefield, along with his colleague Professor John Walker-Smith, formally reported in The Lancet medical journal case studies involving 12 patients who experienced the connection between autism and a particular syndrome of GI symptoms. Wakefield and Smith also shared that parents reported that the autism diagnosis followed the MMR vaccine. [3-5]

Journalist Brian Deer, in 2004 published articles in the British Medical Journal accusing Wakefield and Smith of fraud. Both Wakefield and John Walker-Smith were later barred on January 28, 2010, from practicing medicine by the United Kingdom’s General Medical Council. [6-8]  The Lancet retracted the work of Wakefield and Smith, following the removal of their medical licenses.

Interestingly, both the British Medical Journal and The Lancet have strong ties to the pharmaceutical company which manufactures the MMR vaccine. [9]

The MMR vaccination began losing money after The Lancet article publication, although sales of single vaccinations increased. In March of 2012, Professor John Walker-Smith’s fight to regain his medical license was successful, when he was found non-guilty of any wrongdoing or fraud. John Walker-Smith received financial support from his medical liability insurance to fight the courts, but Wakefield was unable to do so. [10-12]

In 2012, Robert Scott Bell interviewed Dr. Andrew Wakefield for his radio show. In that interview, Dr. Wakefield shared how his colleague who co-wrote The Lancet report won back his license to practice medicine in an appeal to the High Court in the United Kingdom. He also shared interesting information about the lack of fairness in the actual trial which removed the medical licenses for both Wakefield and Smith to practice medicine:

“Absolutely, in the High Court in the UK, the long awaited outcome of John Walker Smith’s appeal. People who don’t know, John Walker Smith is one of the founding fathers of pediatric gastroenterology in the world, he is an outstanding physician and very, very well respected and a leader in the field, a teacher of so many of today’s young pediatric gastroenterologists.

Back in 1998 we published in The Lancet on the discovery of a new bowel disease in children with autism and an association in time that the parents had made with MMR vaccine and for that, for those efforts, he was in an effort I think to get me to stop vaccine safety research, to send a message to everybody else, he lost his medical license along with me.

He was allowed to appeal, I couldn’t afford to but he was funded to appeal and he was completely and utterly exonerated in the high court. The judge issued a resounding condemnation of, I think in legal terms, at least in my opinion, the way in which the General Medical Council’s case was handled. Asking why would a man of this caliber even consider taking a risk in effect.

That’s my reading of the opinion, but you know some of the criticisms of the GMC were very, very harsh and it may interest the readers- here you may think that there would be experts in research and experts in pediatric gastroenterology and child psychiatry sitting on the panel to judge this doctor, but there weren’t. There were two lay people, one general practitioner with no experience in research, and rather than having a child psychiatrist they had an adult psychiatrist and rather than having a pediatrician they had a geriatrician. So right from the outset you can see how flawed the process was.”

Dr. Andrew Wakefield currently lives in Texas. He has continued his research into the vaccination, autism and bowel disease connection and helped countless patients with his research. [13]

Why Is Dr. Wakefield So Threatening To Conventional Medicine?

Physicians receive strong, one-sided conditioning in their medical training regarding the safety and effectiveness of vaccinations. They are taught the importance of vaccines in preventing diseases, while evidence which contradicts this teaching is ignored and minimized.

Physicians also receive training and rewards which encourage them to vaccinate as aggressively as possible. While the existence of vaccine dangers to health are discussed, these facts are largely minimized. Doctors also face tremendous pressure to vaccinate by their professional groups and face negative economic and professional consequences if they question vaccines. As a result, many physicians blindly recommend vaccines and feel threatened by anyone who questions their safety. [14]

Physicians are actually taught the absurdity that “the immune system is capable of responding to 100,000 vaccines at one time,” according to the abstract by Dr. Offit et al. [15]

Money And Big Pharma

Dr. Wakefield’s tremendous courage and strength of character required to question the safety of the combination MMR vaccine threatened in a significant way the very institution of vaccinations, which is highly profitable for pharmaceutical companies. The pharmaceutical companies had too much to lose, so they embarked on a determined smear campaign to ruin Dr. Wakefield’s reputation. As previously stated, the medical “industry” went so far as to remove his medical license. [16]

With the recent series of uncanny, horrible, and suspicious deaths of some of the most valiant and brilliant holistic physicians, it is clear that the forces threatened with financial loss will go to any lengths to ensure their profits go uninterrupted. [17]

As previously stated, following Wakefield’s report in The Lancet, sales of the MMR vaccine declined. Both Wakefield and Walker-Smith were highly respected researchers and physicians. This financial threat to pharmaceutical companies prompted the backlash to these prominent researchers. It is well-documented that vaccinations are a huge money maker for pharmaceutical companies. [18]

Why Dr. Wakefield Is A Hero To The Autism Community

On the other side of the Wakefield debate are those who have experienced firsthand vaccine damages to themselves or a family member or friend. Others trained in or living a holistic lifestyle also take time to research the vaccination issue and often conclude that vaccines are neither safe or effective. These individuals embrace Dr. Wakefield as a hero and defend his position.

Dr. Wakefield is the rare physician who has listened to his parents’ reports of their children’s dramatic health decline into autism following the MMR vaccine. Wakefield has researched and found treatments for the resulting unique inflammatory bowel disease which has resulted.

The following autism groups have supported Dr. Wakefield and his tremendous commitment and efforts to help the autism community and the thousands of suffering children:

  • Age of Autism
  • Autism Action Network
  • Autism Media Channel
  • Autism One
  • Autism File
  • Global 
Autism Research Institute
  • Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy
  • Generation Rescue
  • 
National Autism Association
  • No Mercury
  • Schafer Autism Report
  • TACA-Talk About Curing Autism
  • The Autism Trust USA/UK
  • The Coalition for SafeMinds
  • The Alan D. Clark, M.D. Memorial Research Foundation [19]

In his own words, Dr. Wakefield has stated:

“… They’ve underestimated the mothers, who are formidable. What a formidable force, and far more frightening in many respects than the CDC or the pharmaceutical industry. They know what happened to their children, they’re not going to be put off, they’re not going to back down from this fight and they are a tremendous inspiration. So much of what I’ve understood, what I know now about autism and the gut-brain link and the immune system link and detoxification and so on has come from parental insights and not, sadly, from any insights from the medical profession or scientists. That is instructive in itself. Therefore when they say this is what happened to my child in the face of a vaccine, we have to take that extremely seriously.” [20]

 

Will You Stand by Us? Vaccines harm children every day. Your generous gift helps us bring you more stories like this one and help families in need.


Research Supports Wakefield’s Initial Work

Tremendous research supports Dr. Wakefield’s initial study connecting autism with bowel disorders. The following are peer-reviewed papers supporting his work:

  • Furlano R, Anthony A, Day R, Brown A, Mc Garvey L, Thomson M, et al. “Colonic CD8 and T cell filtration with epithelial damage in children with autism.” J Pediatr, 2001;138:366-72.
  • Sabra S, Bellanti JA, Colon AR. “Ileal lymphoid hyperplasia, non-specific colitis and pervasive developmental disorder in children.” The Lancet, 1998;352:234-5.
  • Torrente F., Machado N., Perez-Machado M., Furlano R., Thomson M., Davies S., Wakefield AJ, Walker-Smith JA, Murch SH. “Enteropathy with T cell infiltration and epithelial IgG deposition in autism.” Molecular Psychiatry, 2002;7:375-382.
  • Wakefield AJ, Anthony A, Murch SH, Thomson M, Montgomery SM, Davies S, Walker-Smith JA. “Enterocolitis in children with developmental disorder.” American Journal of Gastroenterology, 2000;95:2285-2295.
  • Ashwood P, Anthony A, Pellicer AA, Torrente F, Wakefield AJ. “Intestinal lymphocyte populations in children with regressive autism: evidence for extensive mucosal immunopathology.” Journal of Clinical Immunology, 2003;23:504-517.

The following peer-reviewed papers replicate Dr. Wakefield’s original findings:

  • Gonzalez, L. et al., “Endoscopic and Histological Characteristics of the Digestive Mucosa in Autistic Children with gastro-Intestinal Symptoms.” Arch Venez Pueric Pediatr, 2005;69:19-25.
  • Balzola, F., et al., “Panenteric IBD-like disease in a patient with regressive autism shown for the first time by wireless capsule enteroscopy: Another piece in the jig-saw of the gut-brain syndrome?” American Journal of Gastroenterology, 2005. 100(4): p. 979- 981.
  • Balzola F et al . “Autistic enterocolitis: confirmation of a new inflammatory bowel disease in an Italian cohort of patients.” Gastroenterology, 2005;128(Suppl. 2);A-303.

These are the articles on treatment of gastrointestinal symptoms in autistic children:

  • Buie T, et al. Pediatrics. 2010 Jan;125 Suppl 1:S19-29. Recommendations for evaluation and treatment of common gastrointestinal problems in children with ASDs.
  • Buie T, et al. Pediatrics. 2010 Jan;125 Suppl 1:S1-18. Evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders in individuals with ASDs: a consensus report. [21]

Conclusion

Dr. Wakefield has been demonized by mainstream media and conventional medicine, while he is considered a hero in the holistic community. Is Wakefield a hero or a quack? Only you can decide for yourself.

  • Doctor Jack

    He’s definitely no quack!

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    He isn’t in the slightest bit threatening to conventional medicine especially now that he’s been struck off and quite right too considering what he did.

  • xileen worcester

    Gave that man a NOBEL!

  • VikingAPRNCNP

    He was found both guileful and disqualified from medical practice. Add in disreputable and disgraced and I think that speaks to his lancet paper.

  • Bill Pembry

    ” His advocacy ultimately caused him to lose his medical license and reputation among many of his peers.”

    Way to whitewash it.

  • tamarque

    I watched the case against Wakefiedl develop in the UK. The hearings held against him were all online to follow. It was a classic kangaroo court that was held. For example no parents of the children he presumably harmed were allowed to speak. Only those trashing him got a voice in the hearings. There were many other aberrations in the trial.

    Second, the entire case was a contrived fiasco of Big Pharma via a few chosen people. Brian Deer, the alleged reporter, has links to Big Pharma via a close relative.

    Third, Wakefield’s study, being only a brief look at a phenomenon that he uncovered in his research, simply concluded that further research was needed. It was a benign case study with no alarming warnings. But it did note that all these autistic children had measles virus in the gut from the vaccines. The article remained published without problem for 10 yrs. It was only when the public was calling for more vaccine choice and raising questions and resistance that Big Pharma went looking for a fall guy in order to scare the public and the medical profession into better compliance.

    But ignorance is bliss and most of the people who rail against Wakefield haven’t a clue about the case and the economics and politics behind it.

    If Wakefield was left alone, he probably would have done more research and it would have stayed within the medical journals without fanfare. However, pushing him out of medical practice did 2 big things: first, it opened his eyes to the bullying and lying going on in lieu of science, and second, it
    freed him think differently as he no longer had to kowtow to the medical industry.

    What we also do not hear about is the study he was doing in Texas when he relocated here. In that study he used chimps and began to give the vaccine schedule usually given to human infants. The control group was allowed to be raised in normative ways. The study group began to show regressive social & developmental behavior almost from the first vaccine. I want to know what happened to that study and who has taken it over when Wakefleld left the facility to protect it from the assaults being levied at him.

    I am happy to see that Wakefield has used his knowledge and credibility to continue working on vaccine dangers and education of the public.

  • S W

    All he did was write up case studies noting that there was measles virus in the intestines of these autistic children with gastrointestinal problems. How does that makes him guileful and worthy of disqualification? It wasn’t a contrived interventional study like so many pharma studies are. He noted what he saw and found. That is hardly worthy of losing his license or being mocked as he is by the media, and evidently nurse practitioners like yourself. It IS time that we explored what the vaccines connection is to the health problems we’re seeing in children or else we’re looking at nearly half a generation being essentially disabled in one way or another. Plus the fact that subsequent studies support his small case study observations vindicates him.

  • nworder

    You vaccine troll …../..! You will get your comeuppance – something similar in false accusations will hit you on the forehead and you will remember your cheap and slimy judgement of Andrew Wakefield

  • nworder

    What he did was tell the truth and his accusers will soon be outed and routed.
    Why does the mention of Wakefield bring trolls like you crawling out from under a s,……
    you know lying for troll cash will eventually get to you – it will carry into your private life – you cant mess with the devil like this .

  • nworder

    These vaccinators of little helpless children and babies have caused more deaths and damage than most of the Nazis at Nuremberg – when will they also be put on trial .
    Vaccination has been a racket since Jenner killed his own son with it.
    Gangsters were bound to move into this occult superstition and they found a way to bribe corrupt the senators to force 100’s of poisons over and over into infants for enormous profit – destroying millions of families – AND they know fine what they are doing .
    Unless they blow the whistle and repent – why would they not go to hell – like Mengele .

    Are they any better than Mengele – no – they are just more subtle

    The GMC should be investigated to see how much financial interests these pharma men hold with the
    the vaccine holocaust

    So here is the case against Dr. Wakefield:
    First thing to know from jump start, the trolls that have posted are CLUELESS which is why they haven’t presented a cogent comment about the Wakefield situation. The report (named below) submitted by Dr. Andrew Wakefield and 12 other top researchers, in the UK this is what Fiona Godless stated in the BMJ:

    THE ACCURACY AND PATHOLOGY OF THE PAPER HAS NOT BEEN DISPUTED and still isn’t to this day.
    “Fiona Godlee, the editor of the BMJ, says that the journal’s conclusion of fraud was not based on the pathology but on a number of discrepancies between the children’s records and the claims in the Lancet paper…”
    Remember the person who did the actual paperwork was Dr. Walker-Smith, not Dr. Wakefield.

    Let’s dispel the coming troll lies:
    1. Dr. Wakefield is still a Doctor. His license to practice medicine has been removed BUT his earned credentials are still in tact. What’s earned academically can’t be removed.
    2. The lie that Dr. Wakefield was developing and selling, patenting or whatever—a vaccine…here is the back story:
    -Professor Mark Pepyps admitted on that BBC Radio interview, he effectively got rid of Dr Wakefield, by asking him to leave his research position. (Refusal would have meant a sacking). Prof Pepys then withdrew all UCL support for Dr Wakefield’s patented Transfer Factor,****** NOT a vaccine*****, as Deer (Brian) claimed, but designed to ameliorate the effects of measles, particularly in children who could not be vaccinated due to their immune systems being compromised. (ie children with cancer undergoing chemotherapy). Dr Wakefield was working on a hypothesis, vaccine derived measles virus, could be causing gut problems in autistic children. This research was deliberately stopped and denigrated, in my opinion a chance to understand and treat both gut disorders and autism was deliberately and shamefully prevented. Prof Pepys linked up with MMR vaccine manufacturers GSK (what a coincidence),to produce a new company Pentraxin Therapeutics, and produced a plethora of patents of his own. At the last count he was going ‘cap in hand’ to the UK Medical Research Council for funding to research the benefits of …..guess what? ‘immunotherapy’..yes the same therapies Dr Wakefield was working on. As Deer says:- ‘You couldn’t make it up!’ (Age of Autism)
    Here is an excellent synopsis of the Wakefield witch hunt: https://www.youtube(dot)com/watch?v=sLuYE-F1Js0.

    This is the name of the report:
    The Lancet, Volume 375, Issue 9713, Page 445, 6 February 2010
    Ileal-lymphoid-nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorder in children”
    Volume 351, Number 9103 28 February 1998 A J Wakefield, S H Murch, A Anthony, J Linnell, D M Casson, M Malik, M Berelowitz, A P Dhillon, M A Thomson, P Harvey, A Valentine, S E Davies, J A Walker-Smith. Lead Researcher was Walker-Smith.

    CONCLUSION:
    “We did not prove an association between measles,mumps, and rubella vaccine and the syndrome described. Virological studies are underway that may help to resolve this issue.”

    ******Read the conclusion again and again and again. It stated: “We did not prove an association between measles,mumps, and rubella vaccine and the syndrome described. Virological studies are underway that may help to resolve this issue.”******

    As you can see the report NEVER stated that the MMR caused Autism. However I just ran across this interesting bit of info. Go to this site, scroll down and read – The Original MMR Vaccine Package Insert Lists Autism as a Known Side Effect: http://vaccine-injury(dot)info/trust.cfm. Yup, there it is. Just like on the Dtap vaccine vial insert that is now difficult to find—-Autism is listed.

    Here’s an interesting FYI:
    One month after Wakefield’s original Lancet paper, a study of vaccine injury claims by US government scientists in the journal Pediatrics found that 48 claimants developed encephalopathy within 15 days after receiving an attenuated measles vaccine, resulting in severe neurological sequelae or death. This happened in “a nonrandom, statistically significant distribution of cases on days 8 and 9.” The
    authors concluded:
    This clustering suggests that a causal relationship between measles vaccine and encephalopathy
    may exist as a rare complication of measles immunization.

    Pediatrics. 1998 Mar;101(3 Pt 1):383-7.
    Acute encephalopathy followed by permanent brain injury or death associated with further attenuated measles vaccines: a review of claims submitted to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

    Pediatrics & Wakefield reports say basically the same thing except the Wakefield report stated there needed to be further studies. He broke the cardinal rule of though shall not mess with the primary money maker of the pharmaceutical industry. He didn’t get the memo.

    Did you know that there are 13 authors on this report?
    The paper was retracted, ALTHOUGH THE ACCURACY HAS NOT BEEN DISPUTED and still isn’t to this day. Brian Deer accusation have been scrutinized and this is what happened:

    “When the Deer/BMJ findings came under the scrutiny of Dr David Lewis in November 2011 they were forced to re-trench (reported in Nature):
    “But he (Bjarnason) says that the forms don’t clearly support charges that Wakefield deliberately misinterpreted the records.
    “The data are subjective. It’s different to say it’s deliberate falsification,” he says.
    “Deer notes that he never accused Wakefield of fraud over his interpretation of pathology records… (WHAT???????)

    “Fiona Godlee, the editor of the BMJ, says that the journal’s conclusion of fraud was not based on the “pathology” but on a number of discrepancies between the children’s records and the claims in the Lancet paper…”

    Although Godlee had previously stated in February 2011:
    “The case we presented against Andrew Wakefield that the1998 Lancet paper was intended to mislead was not critically reliant on GP records”. It is primarily based on Royal Free hospital records, including histories taken by clinicians, and letters and other documents received at the Royal Free from GPs and consultants.”

    But it is clear that the judge who presided over Walker-Smith’s exoneration and reviewed the Lancet paper in detail could not find any evidence of this. His one major quibble was over the statement about ethical approval in the paper which Walker-Smith says he did not see – however this is accurate too.

    “Ethical approval and consent:
    “Investigations were approved by the Ethical Practices Committee of the Royal Free Hospital NHS Trust, and parents gave informed consent.”

    The paper did not have ethical approval and consent, and *****did not need it***** because it was simply a review of patient data (which was what was on the tin). The procedures needed ethical approval and consent and had them.
    *Court finding are posted below with a link to the actual documents.*

    This is what Brian Deer has to say today: “Who Can Say?” — Journalist Who Alleged Wakefield Committed Fraud Backs Off Key Claim: http://www.ageofautism (dot) com/dr-andrew-wakefield/. “Brian Deer finally admitted he filed the complaint”. Not the parents of the children, not another doctor-a journalist-and not a very good one.

    So this is what the British High Court adjudicated in 2012 when Professor Dr. Walker Smith filed an appeal on the paper (name above)
    “But following the successful appeal of the paper’s senior clinical investigator – John Walker-Smith – THE GMC FINDINGS THAT SERVED AS THE BASIS FOR LANCET RETRACTION HAVE SINCE BEEN OVERTURNED.

    With regard to the GMC’s false claims that the patients in the paper were not “consecutively referred”:
    “157. …Thus construed, this paper does not bear the meaning put upon it by the [GMC] panel. The phrase “consecutively referred” means no more than that the children were referred successively, rather than as a single batch, to the Department of Paediatric Gastroenterology.”

    Similarly, the GMC’s rulings that the children in the Lancet paper were subjects of a research project that did not gain ethical approval ALSO PROVED UNFOUNDED:

    “158. …The [GMC] panel’s finding that the description of the patient population in the Lancet paper was misleading would only have been justified if its primary finding that all of the Lancet children were referred for the purposes of research as part of Project 172-96 is sustainable. Because, for the reasons which I have given, it was not, this aspect of its findings must also fall.”

    *England and Wales High Court (Administrative Court)
    Decision Between: PROFESSOR JOHN WALKER-SMITH Appellant- and – GENERAL MEDICAL COUNCIL- Respondent.
    MR STEPHEN MILLER QC AND MS ANDREA LINDSAY-STRUGO
    (instructed by EASTWOODS SOLICITORS) for the Appellant MISS JOANNA GLYNN QC AND MR CHRISTOPHER MELLOR (instructed by FIELD FISHER WATERHOUSE LLP) for the Respondent
    Hearing dates: 13th. 14th, 15th, 16th & 17th February 2012
    http://www.bailii(dot)org/ew/cases/EWHC/Admin/2012/503.html

    The judge found only one misleading statement in the paper, but it was not because investigations undertaken were unethical experiments described as gaining ethical approval in the paper according to the now-overturned findings on which the paper’s retraction was based. On the contrary, it was because investigations in the paper were described as being ethically approved when most were clinically indicated and required no such approval, although a few investigations were ethically approved. This may require an erratum, but it does not justify keeping the paper fully retracted. Reinstatement of the paper would literally expose the industries fraudulent activities. It would be a game over for the vaccine industry because it would not be able to financially pay off the lawsuits-at least outside of the US.

    -Judge Lord Justice Mitting, was scathing about the GMC’s ‘superficial and inadequate’ examining of Deer’s evidence, and stated much of it was just plain WRONG!! The Judge stopped short of accusing Deer of making things up, but we can draw our own conclusions. Deer’s response on his web page and on Matt Carey’s LB/RB blog was to accuse the Judge of ‘inexperience’ – VERY unwise!! In the UK, Judges are inviolate. Deer plainly regards himself as an expert on the law, as well as an expert on histopathology, science, medicine and anything else you can think of. (AOA)

    Ask yourself this, if Dr. Wakefield work is so fraudulent ( a person who is a fraud will not confine himself to just one episode), why haven’t other medical journals pulled his other papers of which there are many. When “Fiona Godlee made a request to have all of Dr. Wakefield papers retracted she was told flat out: NO!

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    No, what he did was act “dishonestly and irresponsibly”, as the GMC put it and they were putting it mildly. How gratifying to see you resort to hysterical personal attacks – a sure sign of not having a leg to stand on.

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    “First thing to know from jump start, the trolls that have posted are CLUELESS which is why they haven’t presented a cogent comment about the Wakefield situation.”

    I’m sure you’re not suggesting that merely posting a comment disagreeing with an article makes someone a ‘troll’ but just in case:

    Wakefield is history, which is why I really can’t be bothered to reproduce arguments I made after a great deal of research years ago here but in the unlikely event you are interested in what anyone who disagrees with you has to say, be my guest: http://www.skepticat.org/tag/andrew-wakefield/

  • guest

    Who is the funding source for this website?

    Which website? My blog? LMAO! I fund it myself of course. I can just about afford the £5 a month it costs me. Honestly – what a question! :-)

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    Why are you anonymous?

  • If you researched, Maria, you used bogus info to conclude your misguided view. That site you posted is known by people who are paying attention to be dis-information. People who did ‘proper’ research from credible cites, sites & sources. You are only parroting what you beLIEve you know.

    If I gave you are name how do you know I would be who I say I am?

  • nworder

    He was vindicated by nearly all who have heard his story including in the medical profession – which you obviously did not read in your eagerness to get your cash .
    The GMC have their fingers in big pharma cash trail as you are .
    Every lie you tell goes into your book – you are living a lie.

  • guest

    Please provide any and all information you have on Dr. Wakefield plus links to Independent unbiased sources that confirm what you have posted on your site as true. I will forward it to a UK source that has documented in the Wakefield situation for over a decade. I’m sure he will scrutinize thoroughly.

    I have found people who have websites and those who profess to not be funded by Pharma indirectly are actually being financed through 3rd party sources so it’s a reasonable question in this day and age. Example; websites Every Child By Two, Shot of Prevention, Vaccinate Your Baby, Voices For Vaccines, websites supposeably run by soccer moms have all been traced back to Task Force for Global Health and the CDC via tax records which are public. So it’s a reasonable question.

  • nworder

    You have given me the unmistaken impression that you are a clueless troll eager to make your cash without even a smidgen of understanding about the case.

  • nworder

    Very well done – Pepyps , Godlee and Deer could anyone sink lower than these three

    How do we know you are a real person and not just using your pharma identity.

  • nworder

    So you made a great deal of research years ago lol – I cant be bothered to reproduce arguments since I am A lazy ,..=- ! and just prefer to make it up – what I am really trying to say – “is what does it matter” just give me the cash hahh hah

    Maclachlan – DO THEY PAY YOU FOR THIS ????

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    No, it isn’t a reasonable question, it’s an irrelevant question because arguments stand or fall on their own merits regardless of who makes them. Questions about funding are a diversion from the arguments you don’t seem interested in engaging with. That said, I’m grateful for the list of interesting websites you provide, none of which I’d seen before. I must say I’m surprised that you appear unable to see a difference between a personal wordpress blog and the websites of apparently quite large non-profit campaigning organisations or communities. Obviously an organisation like Every Child By Two, which has a board of directors, is funded and I see that it is transparent about this in spite of your rather sad attempt to present it as behaving mendaciously.

    Now, how about answering my question about why you hiding behind the cowardly cloak of anonymity? Who funds you?

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    And my several articles about Wakefield prove that I am far from clueless. Thanks again for proving you have no arguments just personal attacks.

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    It makes no difference to me or anyone else what somebody as stupid as you quite evidently are believes. I’m sorry but not surprised that you appear to be intent on dragging this conversation into the mire so I won’t indulge you any further. If you wish to take issue with any of the well-supported arguments I made about Wakefield, feel free to do so on my blog.

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    Google is your friend. Ask a grown up to help you use it. Ciao.

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    Nobody pays me for any blog or comment I make and the fact that you keep going on about this makes you sound frankly nuts.

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    I did all that on my blog which I helpfully linked to. Feel free to forward it to whomever you please, anonymous one.

  • Maria_Maclachlan

    The site I posted is my personal blog and there is nothing bogus about it. Every article on it is supported by credible site and sources – try actually checking it for yourself or is that too difficult for you? If you wish to take issue with any of the arguments, you are welcome to do so on my blog. Good grief!

  • Jem

    If all you had were personal attacks, wouldn’t you want to be anonymous too?

  • Jem

    Oh rubbish! The evidence for Wakefield’s dishonest behaviour is irrefutable and easy enough to find. That’s why all rational people who don’t have an axe to grind OR a financial interest are able to see him for what he is – no better than a criminal.

    That isn’t “all” he did. Try looking at some unbiased sources.

    Hero! Going to hear him speak in the early days after my child’s vaccine injury gave me such hope and put us on the path to healing. Without him and others like him, my son would to have been able to go form moderate-sever/non-verbal to high functioning and verbal. I KNOW had we listened to the mainstream, our child would still be non-verbal throwing himself up against the wall, suffering debilitating gut pain and pooping on the floor very time my back was turned. Today, he is doing well, though still delayed in ares, but he is progressing academically and dreaming of an independent future.

  • Rachel

    Here is a story told personally to me by the mother of a severely autistic child. He was developing normally, albeit with a number of ear infections and use of antibiotics, until about 13 months old when he got his MMR. Within a few days he had to classic regression into autism along with severe diarrhoea. This went on for 2 years, when she took her son to a homoeopath, who antidoted the MMR. Unfortunately the Autism continues, but the diarrhoea ceased instantly. That’s two coincidences in one child. I am not a statistician, but chances seem pretty remote that there is no connection between the MMR and Autism in this case.

  • Rachel

    I know you are very angry, and probably with just cause, but mud slinging and name calling achieves nothing. I have listened to an interview with Andrew Wakefield and was incredibly impressed at how generous and gracious he was towards those who set out to destroy him. Besides the science, I support him all the way because of that.

  • Wakefield’s book, “Callous Disregard”, is worth reading. So, too, is “Vaccine Epidemic”. I am now refusing all vaccines. I hope your son continues to make good progress.

  • nworder

    Imagine spending you life being paid to slander a brave doctor who could have ignored the parents and kept his head down and made tons of cash .

    Is this what you want on your gravestone – “Here lies a Slanderer” ?

    These slimy vaccine and drug executives dont care whether you live or die
    – you might be gullible enough to gush when they talk to you thinking you are some great promoted , special kind of troll but when your usefulness is up you will be left in their exhaust smoke of their 200 K Mercedes .
    They dont care if you end up in a loony bin after half a lifetime of supporting their vaccine holocaust – like some sort of Mengele worshiper.

  • Bill Pembry

    Why would an anti-vax site ask if he was a hero or quack if he’s been vindicated?

  • Bill Pembry

    I agree. He’s more of a fraud.

  • VikingAPRNCNP

    esults: Of the 537,303 children in the cohort (representing 2,129,864 person-years), 440,655 (82.0 percent) had received the MMR vaccine. We identified 316 children with a diagnosis of autistic disorder and 422 with a diagnosis of other autistic-spectrum disorders. After adjustment for potential confounders, the relative risk of autistic disorder in the group of vaccinated children, as compared with the unvaccinated group, was 0.92 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.68 to 1.24), and the relative risk of another autistic-spectrum disorder was 0.83 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.65 to 1.07). There was no association between the age at the time of vaccination, the time since vaccination, or the date of vaccination and the development of autistic disorder.

    Rachel – Generally speaking, there’s really no such thing as “medicine”. What there is though is chemical poisoning. What are characterized as “side effects” and “adverse reactions” are poisoning effects. They just don’t say that because then people wouldn’t submit to their products.
    Autism by any other name is brain damage. Doesn’t matter what fancy names are affixed. The only thing that has any possibility of improving this child’s health is detoxification so the body has the best odds of healing and repairing itself all under the control of the subconscious brain. That’s the only “antidote” for what you characterized as ‘ear infections’, ‘autism’, ‘diarrhea’. Had the mother stayed away from both the so called “doctor” as well as the “homeopath”, her son would have been much better off. Of course, she needs to learn about healthful living so that her son has all the advantages possible as health is only produced by healthful living and not by witch-doctory.

    At first, Wakefield was neither a hero nor a quack. He was a diligent doctor doing what was right. Wakefield became a hero because he continued his crusade despite the flak and punishments he received from Big Pharma and the Establishment, which displays his bravery and persistence, two qualities of a hero.

    As usual, Big Pharma’s attack on Wakefield inadvertently pushed him into the spotlight which provoked an international debate concerning vaccines. We can thank the Poisoned Needle crowd for Wakefield’s popularity and the controversy which surrounds him.

    The problem is that 80 to 90% of what’s taught in medicine schools is deliberately incorrect as they have to work “medicines” into the heath equation when it has no place there as most health problems are due to mal nutrition. So their students graduate and are clueless to the fact that they’ve been disinformed, go out into the world and do the evil bidding of the pharmaceutical companies and aren’t even aware that what they are advocating is dangerous and has no place in the health equation, vaccines probably being the biggest fraud of all. That’s eugenics at its worst. Physicians are pretty much correctly trained when it comes to accidents, injuries, emergences birth defects and some corrective surgeries. Everything else, you need to learn about healthful living and how to correctly interpret symptoms because the medical interpretations are deliberately misleading. Health is only produced by healthful living…

  • Rachel

    I agree totally, I have 10 grandchildren and not a vaccination between them — and all thriving. One, with three older brothers at school, had measles, chicken pox, whooping cough, and rubella before his first birthday. All lasted as a few days of inconvenience. Now he never has a sick day in his life. I was merely pointing out that the connection between MMR and autism is strong, as many mothers know instinctively. Although I do believe there are other sources of toxicity that can produce ASD — I know one severe autistic that never had any vaccinations. However her father has aspergers and her mother has fibromyalgia — so obviously some immune issues there.

  • Doctor Jack

    Absolutely Rachel, there are many other toxins that cause health complications but vaccines would have to be up there in terms of insidiousness as it’s pumped directly into the blood stream thereby bypassing the digestive system where there’s at least the possibility of being somewhat neutralized in potency before heading into the body proper. The whole zeka thing in Brazil claiming to cause birth defects is totally crap fabricated by CDC criminals. In this example, it’s significant agricultural pesticides in the food and water that’s interfering with normal development in infants and children and poisoning everybody else for that matter. Recently I’ve read that approximately half the cereals in American have detectable amounts of glyphosate in them. That’s Round Up from Monsanto and it’s a known carcinogen.
    What causes infants to have symptoms as the ones you mentioned above, is incorrect feeding, overfeeding, contaminated breast milk as well as non food factors that affect nutrition such as not enough sleep, crawling around, etc. Toxemia is pretty much the cause of all dis eases and as you know, we live in a toxic soup these days so there are many ways one comes into contact with poisonous substances including prescriptive and non prescriptive drugs. Unfortunately Prince died from physician assisted suicide IMHO. His “doctor” or somebody provided him with drugs that kept him stimulated at the expense of not sleeping for six days and well, you see where that got him . It’s not only not nice to fool Mother Nature, it’s impossible!

  • nworder

    Getting the diseases naturally is 1000 times safer than getting the disease injected and bypassing the immune system . This is NATURAL vaccination and trains the immune system – I had all these diseases and only mumps kept me off for 2 days due to big face – they were less “sore” than a cold .

  • AutismDadd

    Wakefield’s advocacy DID NOT CAUSE him to lose his licence. He lost it because of collusion between James Murdoch/Brian Deer, GlaxoSmithKline, the General Medical Council and the British government. A GMC kangaroo actually used fiction created by Brian Deer, a person with no medical education whatsoever as evidence there was a series of conspiracies involved. If you have never read this fiction, do so and if you have basic reading comprehension you will see nothing but exaggeration and spin, a little if any evidence.

    You have zero credibility after posting that rubbish

  • Wake up, sites like that are nothing but obviously deliberate and false character assassins.

    If Wakefield published inadequately founded research, then why have all these studies on this long list, supported and even replicated his findings? Why have so many children’s symptoms of autism greatly improved and/or been reversed almost completely by properly done biomedical treatment which includes dietary changes and supplements that heal the obviously MMR vaccine damaged intestinal tract? To ignore all that is simply foolish and to be in obvious denial.

    Petition for Paul A. Offit, MD to take 10,000 vaccines at one time.

    Dr. Paul Offit, MD writes about vaccine safety, “each infant would have the theoretical capacity to respond to about 10 000 vaccines at any one time (obtained by dividing 107 B cells per mL by 103 epitopes per vaccine).” i.e. that an infant can respond to the challenge posed by the antigens in 10,000 vaccines.”

    If an infant can respond to 10,000 vaccines at one time, certainly Dr. Offit, in his supreme confidence of the safety and efficacy of modern vaccines and the CDC’s Vaccine schedule, would have no reservation about taking 10,000 vaccines himself at one time.

    We petition Dr. Paul Offit, MD of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to demonstrate his theoretical proclamation that a human being could take 10,000 vaccines at one time by, in fact, taking 10,000 vaccines at one time.

    Should Dr. Paul Offit, MD have reservations about such an action, we petition a smaller dose of 1,000 Vaccines at one time. Vaccines should be chosen from the CDC’s recommended (in some states, mandated) vaccination schedule. Surely, Dr. Offit would have no reservation about receiving 1/10 the theoretical capacity of a human being 1/20th his own weight and size.

    Dr. Andrew Wakefield Deals With Allegations

    Since the release of the 1998 paper in The Lancet, which suggested the possibility of a link between a novel form of bowel disease, autism, and the MMR vaccine, one of the report’s co-authors, Dr. Andrew Wakefield has been the subject of great controversy and defamation. Here, Wakefield addresses the allegations of fraud, conflict of interest, and medical misconduct that have been leveled against him.

    We are told that no one else could find a connection in regard to the MMR vaccine. We are told that no other study found what Wakefield’s Lancet study did. So other than in doing large scale epidemiological studies, who actually looked directly? Then why are all these studies on this long list then yet quite obviously standing yet with a status of having been entirely ignored? Studies that not only support Dr Wakefield’s 1998 Lancet study findings, but as well essentially replicate those findings?

    Callous Disregard-Research
    http://www.callous-disregard.com/research.htm

    And what did they study in those so called and claimed to larger epidemiological, (population based), vaccine safety studies? In fact they only studied one single vaccine, the MMR; and one single vaccine ingredient, Thimerosal. None of the larger epidemiological studies compared vaccinated to entirely unvaccinated. None of the studies looked at the safety profile of the entire CDc vaccine schedule. None of thsoe studies as well looked at the safety profile of giving from 5 to up to 9 vaccines or more to and infant or small child, in a single day and office visit.

    Every one of the larger MMR, and Thimerosal epidemiological studies were clearly COOKED, for the results, period. Found in a well done analysis below were the use of flawed study designs, the use of unreliable data, predetermined outcomes unsupported by the data, and as well major conflicts of interest in the studies funding sources. As well none of the studies were independently studies which were free of vested interests bias. Find out in this analysis why all of those studies are nothing but unreliable junk science. And guess what, these are the same epidemiological studies that have also been used at the federal vaccine court, to deny 100’s of children and their families a rightful outcome of their compensation being received.

    VACCINES AND AUTISM – WHAT DO EPIDEMIOLOGICAL STUDIES REALLY TELL US?

    We have 16 studies already that clearly state that vaccines do not cause autism.”

    — Amy Pisani, Executive Director, Every Child By Two

    “16 studies have shown no causal association between vaccines and autism, and these studies carry weight in the scientific industry.”

    — Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC Today Show Medical Editor

    “The science is largely complete. Ten epidemiological studies have shown MMR vaccine doesn’t cause autism; six have shown thimerosal doesn’t cause autism.”

    Andrew Wakefield is full of fecal material. Quite appropriate for a disgraced gastroenterologist.

    All jokes aside I did wade through a couple of the articles from his website. One of them was a commentary written by Mr Wakefield. The weakest form of evidence. The second was a discussion from Venezuela. Neither one were useful as a source to support either the association of mmr with either autism or enterocolitis.

    See

    CONCLUSIONS: No evidence was found to support a distinct syndrome of MMR-induced autism or of “autistic enterocolitis.” These results add to the recent accumulation of large-scale epidemiologic studies that all failed to support an association between MMR and autism at population level. When combined, the current findings do not argue for changes in current immunization programs and recommendations.

    Further see Semin Pediatr Infect Dis. 2003 Jul;14(3):199-206.

    “None has found any evidence of the existence of a phenotypically distinct form of autism in children who received the MMR vaccine or of a clustering of onset symptoms in children who are autistic after receiving the MMR vaccine. There is no proof that the overall risk of autism is higher in children who were vaccinated with MMR or of an increase in autism prevalence associated with the use of the MMR vaccine. No epidemiologic evidence suggests an association between MMR vaccination and autism. Moreover, epidemiologic evidence against such an association is compelling.”

    ONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of pervasive developmental disorder in Montreal was high, increasing in recent birth cohorts as found in most countries. Factors accounting for the increase include a broadening of diagnostic concepts and criteria, increased awareness and, therefore, better identification of children with pervasive developmental disorders in communities and epidemiologic surveys, and improved access to services. The findings ruled out an association between pervasive developmental disorder and either high levels of ethylmercury exposure comparable with those experienced in the United States in the 1990s or 1- or 2-dose measles-mumps-rubella vaccinations.

    NBC NEWS :-
    The U.S. infant mortality rate has stalled, the latest government report finds, giving Americans one of the worst rates in the developed world.

    Just under six out of every 1,000 babies died at birth or in the first year of life in the U.S. in 2013, triple the rate of Japan or Norway and double the rate of Ireland, Israel or Italy, the latest report from the National Center for Health Statistics finds. The rate is barely changed from 2012, although it’s down 13 percent from 2005.

    The highest rates were in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana; the lowest infant mortality rates were in Iowa, Vermont and Massachusetts, the NCHS, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found.

  • Oh wow, the Sunday Times, the bogus source that we all know of and that Brian Deer initially used to falsely take down Wakefield. This is old news.

    FLEE FROM MMR LITTLE CHILDREN
    VACCINES UNCENSORED :-

    Measles vaccination produces immune suppression which contributes to an increased susceptibility to other infections.
    Clinical Immunology and Immunopathology, 5/1996; 79(2): 163-170.

    AUTISM FROM MMR :-
    “The MMR vaccine contains live measles viruses and recent studies have shown that immune suppression after vaccination with this virus suppresses immunity in a profound way that last as long as six months. In fact, the CDC recommends separating its vaccine from other live virus vaccines… Yet they combine it with two other live viruses – rubella and mumps… Yet, they never address the obvious question – wouldn’t this vaccine also make the child more vulnerable to other naturally occurring infections such as Haemophilus B, influenza meningitis, meningococcal meningitis, persistent measles infection, influenza…? This has been strongly suggested by a number of studies.

    Not only would they be more susceptible, but severe complications and even death would be more common as well. When death and severe complications and even occur due to these infections, physicians, the CDC, the American Academy Pediatrics use this as a justification for more vaccines, never admitting that the increase incidence of these infections and complications was caused by the previous vaccine recommendations.”

    DEATH AND SICKNESS FOR PROFIT :-
    GLOBAL RESEARCH :-
    “Are pharmaceutical corporations motivated by profits? “Profits from vaccine production aren’t a valid argument against vaccinations—the most important question is whether vaccines are safe and effective, and the answer is unambiguously yes” wrote Lam.

    In 2015, Former Merck Employee and whistleblower Brandy Vaughan Spoke out against the state of California’s vaccination mandate bill SB277 and said:

    The U.S. gives more vaccines than any other country in the world. Our childhood schedule for under the age of one has twice as many vaccines as other developed countries. What else do we have? The highest infant mortality rate of any developed nation. Finland has the lowest.
    They only give 11 by age six. Mississippi has the highest rate of vaccination in the U.S.–highest infant mortality rate. These numbers do not lie. But you will not hear that on the media, and that is not what Senator Pan will tell you.

    What we have with vaccines is the highest profit margin pharmaceutical drug on the market. Drug companies make more money off vaccines than they do any other pharmaceutical drug, in terms of profit margin.

    There is a lack of rigorous safety studies. And they don’t have the incentive to do them because they have no liability.

    Vaccines are the only products in the U.S. that do not have liability. You cannot sue for injuries or death. But that is only in the U.S. Around the world, there are law suits because of serious injuries and deaths because from vaccines. In Spain over Gardasil. In Japan over Gardasil. The flu shot was taken off the market for under five in Australia after deaths and injury. Prevnar was banned in China. Pfizer’s vaccination program was kicked out of the country. France just pulled Rotavirus off their schedule after infant deaths and injuries

    With a forecast of $61 billion in projected sales, rest assured new vaccines will be developed for almost anything.
    Actor and comedian Jim Carrey did say that “150 people die every year from being hit by falling coconuts. Not to worry, drug makers are developing a vaccine”. With 271 vaccines in production, Jim Carrey’s comments, which were criticized by the mainstream media, may not be so farfetched after all.

    MORE VACCINES = AMERICA’S HIGHEST INFANT DEATH RATE.
    NCBI PMC
    Abstract :-

    The infant mortality rate (IMR) is one of the most important indicators of the socio-economic well-being and public health conditions of a country.

    The US childhood immunization schedule specifies 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year—the most in the world—yet 33 nations have lower IMRs. Using linear regression, the immunization schedules of these 34 nations were examined and a correlation coefficient of r = 0.70 (p < 0.0001) was found between IMRs and the number of vaccine doses routinely given to infants. Nations were also grouped into five different vaccine dose ranges: 12–14, 15–17, 18–20, 21–23, and 24–26.

    The mean IMRs of all nations within each group were then calculated. Linear regression analysis of unweighted mean IMRs showed a high statistically significant correlation between increasing number of vaccine doses and increasing infant mortality rates, with r = 0.992 (p = 0.0009). Using the Tukey-Kramer test, statistically significant differences in mean IMRs were found between nations giving 12–14 vaccine doses and those giving 21–23, and 24–26 doses.
    A closer inspection of correlations between vaccine doses, biochemical or synergistic toxicity, and IMRs is essential.

The problem with you, Lowell, is that in your fevered imagination everyone who disagrees with you is a vaccine shill with a vested interest. That is why you are impossible to take seriously.

  • Your problem is that you refuse the evidence of all existing truth information, and all while demanding to continue to hold onto the falsely assumed official propaganda that you fed, and that which the major media in error fed to the entire population of not only the US, but the entire world.

    Vaccine Safety Conference Session 15 Dr Andrew Wakefield

    Andrew Wakefield, MB, BS, FRCS, FRCPath
    AUTISM AND VACCINES: A RESEARCH STRATEGY FOCUSED ON CAUSE

    Filmed at the Vaccine Safety Conference, 2011. For more information please goto http://www.vaccinesafetyconference.com

    Dr. Andrew Wakefield is an academic gastroenterologist. He received his medical degree from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School (part of the University of London) in 1981. He is the fourth generation of his family to have studied medicine at that teaching hospital.

    He pursued a career in gastrointestinal surgery with a particular interest in inflammatory bowel disease. He qualified as Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1985 and in 1996 was awarded a Wellcome Trust Traveling Fellowship to study small-intestinal transplantation in Toronto, Canada. Wakefield was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists in 2001. He has published over 145 original scientific articles, book chapters, and invited scientific commentaries. He recently authored the bestselling book Callous Disregard, chronicling his experiences of challenging public health policy and pharmaceutical industry interests in the UK.

    In the pursuit of possible links between childhood vaccines, intestinal inflammation, and neurologic injury in children, Wakefield lost his job in the Department of Medicine at London’s Royal Free Hospital, his country, his career, and his medical license.

    Wakefield is currently founder and executive director of Strategic Autism Initiative, a Texas-based charity focused on research into autism causation. He is also managing partner and scientific editor of The Autism File Global, a special interest magazine.

    If no one could find a connection in regard to the MMR vaccine, then why are all these studies on this long list yet then yet quite obviously standing with a status of having been completely ignored? Studies that not only support Dr Wakefield’s 1998 Lancet study findings, but as well essentially replicate those findings?

    Dr. Andrew Wakefield Deals With Allegations

    Since the release of the 1998 paper in The Lancet, which suggested the possibility of a link between a novel form of bowel disease, autism, and the MMR vaccine, one of the report’s co-authors, Dr. Andrew Wakefield has been the subject of great controversy and defamation. Here, Wakefield addresses the allegations of fraud, conflict of interest, and medical misconduct that have been leveled against him.

    And what did they study in those so called and claimed to larger epidemiological, (population based), vaccine safety studies? In fact they only studied one single vaccine, the MMR; and one single vaccine ingredient, Thimerosal. None of the larger epidemiological studies compared vaccinated to entirely unvaccinated. None of the studies looked at the safety profile of the entire CDc vaccine schedule. None of thsoe studies as well looked at the safety profile of giving from 5 to up to 9 vaccines or more to and infant or small child, in a single day and office visit.

    Every one of the larger MMR, and Thimerosal epidemiological studies were clearly COOKED, for the results, period. Found were the use of flawed study designs, use of unreliable data, predetermined outcomes unsupported by the data, and as well major conflicts of interest in the studies funding sources; none of them being independent and nor unbiased. Find out in this analysis why all of those studies are nothing but unreliable junk science. And guess what, these are the same epidemiological studies that ave also been used at the federal vaccine court, to deny 100’s of children and their families a rightful outcome of compensation received.

    VACCINES AND AUTISM – WHAT DO EPIDEMIOLOGICAL STUDIES REALLY TELL US?

    We have 16 studies already that clearly state that vaccines do not cause autism.”

    — Amy Pisani, Executive Director, Every Child By Two

    “16 studies have shown no causal association between vaccines and autism, and these studies carry weight in the scientific industry.”

    — Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC Today Show Medical Editor

    “The science is largely complete. Ten epidemiological studies have shown MMR vaccine doesn’t cause autism; six have shown thimerosal doesn’t cause autism.”

    — Dr. Paul Offit, “Autism’s False Prophets”

  • You have delusions about vaccine safety and effectiveness, so why not have some more delusions as well about yourself.

  • He (Deer) was not paid as just a journalist, he was paid to be the link that falsely took down the actually and obviously respectable and correct about the MMR vaccine, Dr Andrew Wakefield.

    It’s NOT just one existing study.

  • Arguing with a biased and in denial blogger like you and on their blog, would get no where, and as you have already ignored every bit of information here that I have put in front of you. Somehow you have developed a very over-inflated personal image of yourself, your false propaganda based knowledge, and as to your debating ability.

  • Why in your biased mind is it so hard for you to realize that the GMC was in on and part of the fraud against Wakefield? Why is it so hard for you to accept that you are a victim of the false information you were fed? Why is it so hard for you to realize and accept the reality of the fact that Wakefield was actually and obviously not guilty of any of the accusations that would have and did cause the outcome that he received? You refuse all evidence to the contrary of your set beliefs.

    It would not matter if you are an existing paid shill, or if you are just a mislead individual that is entirely mislead by the lies you have been fed. It would not and does not matter that you have family in you have vested interests yourself in the failed and mislead standard pharma prescribing medical model. All that matters is the truth. Dr Andrew Wakefield was wrongfully targeted, accused, sabotaged, and his career in public health ruined.

    Without going to the said pharma promoting mad wizard of Gorki, how do you explain this?

    I’ll think you’ll find the area of science, patents, the law and business profits (which believe it or not, are very much bound to each other) it’s a lot more complicated than simply a yes or no type situation. From what I understand and I may be completely wrong about this, Merk, the manufacturer, didn’t want the public to revert to multiple injections because it would lose it’s patent on that vaccine. So, they removed access to the triple vaccines and they got the Government to force the public to have the triple vaccine as well as removing all legal liability for damage caused by their product. Thereby making BIG profits with zero risk. It explains why Big Pharma is SO interested in governments and creating laws to support themselves.
