"Among the most pressing questions is the conduct of Wakefield’s coauthors and other senior colleagues at UCL. What does this tell us about the prevailing culture of our academic institutions and attitudes to the integrity of their output? What safeguards are in place to prevent and expose institutional conflicts of interest in the future? And perhaps most pressing, why does the United Kingdom still have no publicly accountable and adequately resourced mechanism for investigating allegations of research misconduct?"

Great paragraph. The world certainly doesn't need any more "Mr. Wakefield" scammers preying on families with disabled chldren.

The reason they have no mechanism is because they would stand in the way of Pharma's crimes.

And that mechanism only relates to Pharma, not scamming doctors like Wakefield? You're really stretching on that one!

The Pharma and vaccines have committed no crimes. They generally are the first ro recall a product and they have no ides, no ESP to know for sure how the drug will work in the general population to where the person taking it could be taking a number of different medicines at the same time and many people do not follow label instructions as seen with Tylenol, they don't know every persons medical history and it is a fact some ethnic groups are more predisposition
than others and you said yourself, science hasn't gotten as far as knowing the answers.

Where did I say it only applies to Pharma? You are the dopey provac who applies it only to Wakefield. Another Duh moment for friend of Pharma.

If you deem Mr. Wakefield guilt-free, and you do, then you're saying it only applies to the Pharma. This topic is of course about Mr. Wakefield, not Pharma.

As posters can see friend of maiming and killing Pharma isn't on Topix to debate, but to just post nonsense like "spam".

Do I detect a little emotion on the part of FBomber? Do tell, Friend, am I hallucinating or do you recognize this, too. Wouldn't it be wonderful if he joined the rest of us and shared our feelings about autism and Asperger's without rancor and a single-minded point of view.

Who's sharing feelings? You're just sharing your ignorance about what Pharma does to children.

You ought to test it out, FBomber, and see if it works. You get more out of people with honey than you do with vinegar. It's an old cliche, but still works today. It's really worth a try, could change your life around. You may even make Winnipeg a household word in a good way instead of being worth a sneer.

Talking about letting others speak for you, that's what all those links do. Anti vaxxers speaking for an anti vaxxer. That's funny.

Do tell us why a tiny amount might be maimed or killed due to vaccine, but not all? Or why they claimed never to had known prior the side effects? No anti vaxxers ever addresses those main facts.

A person could explain it to a bonehead like you over and over. Funny you can't do the research. But then you couldn't be the same dusty broken record that says the same stupid things over and over.
