That's what all anti vaxxers say when they've been debunked.
The one link from the anti vaxxer site, of either Denmark studies, they keep calling Poul Thorsen, MD the lead author. He was not, nor has he been found guilty.
Kreesten Meldgaard Madsen, M.D. was the lead author of both studies and Thorsen's role within the study had no role in the results or findings. You'd think anti vaxxers would be happy the man spent the CDC funds! Fact is, the only one who was ever found guilty is Wakefield. Bummer.
Another example of abusing a study and misleading others.
Nice try and thanks for more links to debunk. It was great fun.
Point being a person with dishonest tendencies was involved in the study. So dishonest in fact his greed influenced his behavior. Who better to influence the findings of a study Big Pharma and the CDC asked for?
