Andrew Wakefield fixed autism data on vaccines

>> Sunday, February 8, 2009

Andrew Wakefield is the man who started the scare of MMR shots causing autism. It has been found that he lied about his findings, by changing what he had found. Confidential medical documents and interviews with witnesses have established that Andrew Wakefield manipulated patients’ data, which triggered fears that the MMR triple vaccine to protect against measles, mumps and rubella was linked to the condition.
Last week official figures showed that 1,348 confirmed cases of measles in England and Wales were reported last year, compared with 56 in 1998. Two children have died of the disease. All just because this man decides he will change information on findings creating the MMR scare of autism. This was reported by TimesOnline and The Discovery Magazine.
It is a shame that someone would alter their findings on autism for any reason, and this is one of the worst since there are lots of families who believe that MMR vaccines do cause autism. We all have our own beliefs, but what this doctor has done was just the icing on the cake.
