    Yes Andrew Wakefield (no longer an MD) is totally a trustworthy source on this subject.

    Mr Wakefield (I deliberately do not use the term Dr as he has been struck off the general medical council register) is responsible for the reduction in uptake of vaccination, therefore directly responsible for the epidemic we are seeing

    We have already had a fatality from the outbreak and public Heath are working very hard to get the public vaccinated if they are not.


    And if we are going to give any publicity to this man I much prefer the guardians opinion

    Yet what he says in this interview is correct. American, Italian governments have confirmed the autism / MMR link and paid out millions of dollars to vaccine damaged children.

    Vaccine failure is widespread. One of the highest uptakes of MMR vaccine by the population and yet a measles outbreak happens......truth will out.

    Ok garethaus... We get it, vaccinations are bad. You may have more luck with the propaganda on a site that isn't full of health professionals.

    On second thought, keep posting here, we don't really need anymore misinformation being circulated to those who don't know any better.

    That's a pretty average response to define me as a propagandist. Yeah....this site is full of health professionals who can make up their own mind and think on issues raised.

    That's why I posted.

    Yup, that's me, an average nurse, which means my education included statistics, epidemiology, evidence based practice and basic germ theory and your "sources" don't impress me much.

    Thanks XB9S for a good belly laugh.

    That doesn't prove the link, there is no medical evidence to support the claims, and even the co -researchers of the original flawed research have disputed the findings.

    I live and work in the affected area, the fabricated results of this man is having a huge impact on our community. He produced unethical, flawed, anf dangerous publications for financial gain, without a thought to the generations to follow. He lost his medical registration because of his dishonesty



    It must easy to sit many miles away and claim this discredited researcher has credibility when your not directly experiencing the impact of his lies.

    I along with my conmunity, however am witnessing and experiencing the real impact and suffering fraudulent research causes.

    The CDC thoroughly says that there is no link between MMR and autism. Over 50 studies have shown this now. Wakefield was being bank rolled by lawyers suing vaccine companies and totally fudged the results. I don't know how anyone with half a brain cell takes him seriously. I wish he would just disappear from the media all together with every other snake oil sales man. Please show me the original document where these governments are acknowledging the link. A fraud on YouTube tells me nothing.

    I reported this thread. No need to rehash this disproven argument by a quack.

    A cursory google search led me to one trial case in Italy and two in the US where the courts - not scientists or doctors or "the government" (??) - came to the conclusion that the MMR vaccine caused a plaintiff's autism and awarded them a large amount of money.

    A very small subset of the population does have an adverse reaction to a vaccine so serious enough that it causes long-lasting damage. The reaction gets reported by medical providers in a large database and the family usually gets some sort of monetary compensation. The vast majority of these reactions are allergic reactions, often where the pt develops profound hypoxia and subsequent brain damage from being down for too long.

    I can't find any sources that point to some large government-sponsored fund set up to help autism-related MMR cases?

    Here's the thing.....Most of the "do not vaccinate your children" scare tactics are perpetuated by fully vaccinated adults.

    It only takes one time of actually seeing a newborn on a vent due to being around an unvaccinated child and becoming critically ill to change one's mind. (My 5 day old grandaughter, who now has lifelong lung issues from getting HIB pneumonia from an unvaccinated child who was a carrier for instance).

    Parents can do research and speak to their children's MD's about alternate vaccine schedules, and all other perteniant information. This is not, nor should it be a political statement issue, these are the lives of children.

    CDC - Vaccine Safety

    This website is a viable option to answering any questions that parents have regarding vaccines. Scare tactics from a person who is no longer a doctor is not a viable resourch.
