  • I knew about that. But...fraud? That is disgusting! That study has caused all kinds of problems...Moms who refuse to get their children vaccinated and then they get sick. In California where Moms seem to be easily fooled by that study (and Jenny McCarthy...) kids are becoming deathly ill and dying due to Whooping Cough. All because Wakefield spread lies. I hope he goes to jail.

  • "But measles has surged since Wakefield's paper was published and there are sporadic outbreaks in Europe and the U.S. In 2008, measles was deemed endemic in England and Wales."


    I wanted to bring the above quote over here from the article.  People who choose not to vaccinate have put others in danger.  As a parent I am not one bit pleased that the safety of my children may have been compromised by people not vaccinating due to fraud.

  • This is yet another, just because you read it on the internet, doesn't make it true. Vaccines DO NOT cause Autism!

    Neurological adverse events associated with vaccination.
    Piyasirisilp S, Hemachudha T.

    Division of Neurology, Department of Medicine, Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai 50200, Thailand. spiyasir@mail.med.cmu.ac.thPublic tolerance to adverse reactions is minimal. Several reporting systems have been established to monitor adverse events following immunization. The present review summarizes data on neurologic complications following vaccination, and provides evidence that indicates whether they were directly associated with the vaccines. These complications include autism (measles vaccine), multiple sclerosis (hepatitis B vaccine), meningoencephalitis (Japanese encephalitis vaccine), Guillain-Barré syndrome and giant cell arteritis (influenza vaccine), and reactions after exposure to animal rabies vaccine. Seizures and hypotonic/hyporesponsive episodes following pertussis vaccination
