Dr. Wakefield was right: The MMR vaccine-autism connection

For the past decade and change, he’s been unjustly relegated to “anti-vaxxer” whipping boy status by the corrupt mainstream media. But gastroenterologist Dr. Andrew Wakefield never committed any fraud, and his study in The Lancet linking the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella to novel bowel disease and autism has repeatedly been affirmed as accurate in the years following its forced retraction.

If you’ve only heard about Dr. Wakefield on television or from other corporate media sources, you might believe that he’s some discredited quack whose supposedly disproven research was financially or otherwise deceitfully motivated. But nothing could be further from the truth — hear Dr. Wakefield tell the full truth in this powerful interview with host Jonathan Landsman, available through the Vaccine World Summit:

But last fall, Dr. Thompson came forward as a whistleblower with some shocking information: Data published in his paper, entitled “Age at first measles-mumps-rubella vaccination in children with autism and school-matched control subjects: a population-based study in metropolitan Atlanta,” had been manipulated and altered to create the illusion that the MMR shot is safe and doesn’t cause adverse effects.
