4. Vaccines cause autism.
Wakefield created "one of the more destructive health scares of recent years, in which tens of thousands of frightened parents refused to have their children vaccinated. Anti-vaccine cheerleaders such as the actress Jenny McCarthy fanned those fears."
They call that mass hysteria, and Wakefield at the time was enjoying every minute of it. Too bad now he's enjoying the life of unemployment and being a has-been nobody.

Other countries as well have found no association between MMR vaccination and autism, like Japan and Denmark.

More propagarbage aimed at SHEEPLE. It may talk about numerous things, but don't be fooled, this story is about vaccines. As usual all blame is placed on one medical intervention of 12 children who's parents claim WERE NEVER THE SAME AFTER A SERIES OF VACCINES INCLUDING THE MMR. Of course this propagarbage fails to include any informantion. It claims Wakefield made false claims and disregards numerous replications of Wakefield's work. It makes BOGUS claim as usual thay numerous studies have proven no connection between vaccines and autism, but in near 20 years of researching this topic I have NEVER read any but Pharma and government paid for junk science meant to protect vaccine makers and con the public.

First of all, it wasn't a medical intervention. Not sure why you keep trying to down size what Wakefield did as medical intervention. Be that as it is, it wasn't medical intervention as to one of the 12 who has their bowel was perforated in more than 12 places during a colonoscopy surgery, leaving that child needing 24/7 medical care. According to that child's parents,'principal reason' for the surgery was to further research into links between autism and bowel conditions rather than Jack's clinical needs. Looks like kids need protection from Wakefield, that's why he was reduced to monkeys, and then to an unemployed nobody.

Also,'medical intervention' is covered by insurance, not attorneys.
As for those studies claiming to replicate Wakefield's study, how can that be when you claim Wakefield did medical intervention, not a study?? Aside from that, should we go through those studies? There's 21 studies which anti vaxxers claim replicate Wakefield's:

Nothing like anti vaxxers trying to shut up others. Typical, predictable behavior. Opinions (including yours) aren't always correct.
Facts are always correct and reliable.

Typical, predictable behavior. Changes nothing. Wakefield is 4th on the list, and is an unemployed nobody.

Actually, no. Wakefield really IS 4th on the list, and is an unemployed nobody except when he makes such lists as this, reminding everyone he is an unemployed nobody.
