One Thing We Know About Autism: Vaccines Aren't to Blame

There are 4 comments on the National Geographic story from Jul 16, 2013, titled One Thing We Know About Autism: Vaccines Aren't to Blame. In it, National Geographic reports that:

It all started with bad science. The now-debunked theory that autism is caused by the common immunizations nearly all children receive beginning in infancy began with a fabricated piece of research, a 1998 study published-and later retracted-in the journal Lancet.

More lies and garbage to cover up the truth about vaccines. Again they use Wakefield's medical investigation of 12 vaccine damaged children as PROOF vaccines are safe. I guess they forgot about the VAERS vaccine injury reporting system, the vaccine injury compensation programs in many countries, the vaccine court in the USA and the many separate and class action lawsuits that awarded millions to parents who child was damaged. Then they throw a dung pile story like this at the dumbed down sheeple and it convinces the brain dead public that vaccines cause autism and autoimmune disease. Its seem so easy to sway the sheeple, because it is. The sky isn't blue people, PHARMA say so.

considering wakefield was seriously discredited, as well as his license to practice medicine was revoked. since they found out that he fudged a lot of the findings that were presented in his paper.

looks like he was hoping to make several million dollars off of gullible parents due to the faked report.
