Andrew Wakefield is the scum of the universe. He’s gotten scores of people killed and thousands have been sicked, all to fuel his need for money and power.

Andrew Wakefield is the scum of the universe. He’s gotten scores of people killed and thousands have been sicked, all to fuel his need for money and power.

I work with Aspbergers kids and am constantly pointing out to people who should know better (my co-workers, to name but a few) that the study was HORSESHIT and Wakefield has lost his license due to fraud. The sample was too small and the data was faked. At one talk, Wakefield was talking about the results of blood tests when he was interrupted from the audience. The man told Wakefield he was full of shit and he could prove it since he was the lab tech who had actually run Wakefield’s blood tests and the results were nothing like what Wakefield had published.

Kids die needlessly from this crap, and those who spread this disinformation need to be held criminally and financially liable for the easily foreseeable results.

Repeating for emphasis.

Seriously, can these fraudsters be sued?

Similarly, what are the limits of the consequences for Prince Charles and his dangerous anti-science?

I now know what I can honestly consider a capital crime…

The guy literally cooked the books and his “study” has affected countless families and caused untold misery among those who were afflicted with preventable diseases because of a bogus link between autism and vaccines.

Wakefield claimed that his study proved a connection, but a closer examination found that he cooked the books. He lied. He is a fraud.

This is what the original Lancet study claimed, and what the facts really were:

The Lancet paper was a case series of 12 child patients; it reported a proposed “new syndrome” of enterocolitis and regressive autism and associated this with MMR as an “apparent precipitating event.” But in fact:

*

Three of nine children reported with regressive autism did not have autism diagnosed at all. Only one child clearly had regressive autism
*

Despite the paper claiming that all 12 children were “previously normal,” five had documented pre-existing developmental concerns
*

Some children were reported to have experienced first behavioural symptoms within days of MMR, but the records documented these as starting some months after vaccination
*

In nine cases, unremarkable colonic histopathology results—noting no or minimal fluctuations in inflammatory cell populations—were changed after a medical school “research review” to “non-specific colitis”
*

The parents of eight children were reported as blaming MMR, but 11 families made this allegation at the hospital. The exclusion of three allegations—all giving times to onset of problems in months—helped to create the appearance of a 14 day temporal link
*

Patients were recruited through anti-MMR campaigners, and the study was commissioned and funded for planned litigation

My real fear here is that this is going to make people start to think autism itself is a hoax. Unless it actually affects your life, that could be easy to believe.

Reminded me of this article: Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science
