More lies and rubbish from the PHARMA backed media in the UK. This band of criminals includes contacts, friends, family, politicians, judges and others alligned with the UK PharmAFIA. To assert that 12 children who were part of a medical intervention proove the MMR is safe and not involved in a massive autism epidemic is to prove there are people in high places that care nothing about the injury and carnage caused by vaccine experimentation on babies. Its pure greed, mad science, and sociopathic and is a crime against humanity as evil as German atrocities.

It wasn't a 'medical intervention' Waefield did. The paper states right on it "We investigated a consecutive series of children with chronic enterocolitis and regressive developmental disorder."

It's also not surprising in the UK, the at risk age group for the measles is 10 - 16 years old. Directly poit right at Wakefield. Proof that when those who choose not to vaccinate, they spread germs and infect others.

What an imbecile. Investigation or intervention its the same thing. Wakefield also doesn't live in Britain and isn't there telling parents what to do. Its the MMR history of harm thats at fault. A safe vaccine doen't maim and kill.

Investigation and intervention is surely not the same thing. What Wakefield did was experimental and court records do not call it a medical intervention paper.
The findings were:
*Was being paid to conduct the study by solicitors representing parents who believed their children had been harmed by MMR".
*Ordered investigations "without the requisite paediatric qualifications" including colonoscopies, colon biopsies and lumbar punctures ("spinal taps") on his research subjects without the approval of his department's ethics board and contrary to the children's clinical interests, when these diagnostic tests were not indicated by the children's symptoms or medical history.
*"Act[ed]'dishonestly and irresponsibly' in failing to disclose ... how patients were recruited for the study".
*"Conduct[ed] the study on a basis which was not approved by the hospital's ethics committee."
*Purchased blood samples—for £5 each—from children present at his son's birthday party, which Wakefield joked about in a later presentation.

And it's anti vaxxers like you who keep supporting the unemployed former doctor that then directly connects him to the measles outbreaks and lack of vaccinations. Wakefield doesn't have to tell any one anything, not while he has you and every other anti vaxxer.

Unfounded because they shut Wakefield down and sent a message to all researchers, " DO NOT CRITICIZE VACCINES EVER< OR WE'LL DESTROY YOU TOO"!!

Dream on. As if Wakefield's study was all that important, being there was only 12 participants, and as if no other researcher has ever done research on vaccines prior to Wakefield, or after.

Wakefield's greed did himself in, no one else. And if Wakefield was so sure of his research and his own ethics, he would had appealed the ruling against him. He chose to do nothing.

Where is Brossard Ray's evidence that a measles vaccine causes autism (or diabetes)? He has none. He is one of those crackpots who would rather believe what conspiracy theory/quackery sites have to say than genuine scientific studies.

Anti vaxxers have no evidence, that's why they never provide any.
