Doctor who incorrectly linked autism and vaccines will face charges

by bryan kennedy on Jun. 12th, 2006

The Lancet disowned his study, his co-authors spoke out against his research, and he has some major conflicts of interest. Now the UK doctor, Andrew Wakefield, will faces charges that he "published inadequately founded research," and more.

I noticed that Dr. Wakefield has been cleared of charges by the British medical establishment. They apparently found some new evidence in a North Carolina study to back up his findings. I will continue to follow this story since I have a feeling that something is not right. "Incorrectly Links autism and vaccines.." is not really the issue. Lancet disowned the study but they seem to agree with its conclusions. I don't know what it is, but something is causing alarming autism numbers...both in the U.S and in Britain.

My daughter is autistic and I try not to dive too much into all the heresay of what caused what, however, I find it interesting that this doctor made a connection that potentially put the medical industry in serious danger, and his support is now dropping around him like dead flies. Anyone can be bought.
