Media, the Medical Establishment, and Big Pharma start up new round of Andrew Wakefield Bashing

**What a combo...Drug Companies, Doctors, and the Media. Three fountains of misinformation that just won't stop with this 1998 study that struck a nerve. And only now, 23 years later is it being discovered, all of the sudden, that his (and the other co-signers) were fraudulent in their claims regarding the MMR vaccine. This wasn't relevant, I suppose, when he was stripped of his medical license in the UK. Going through Google News just now, I went over 12 pages of nothing but Wakefield = Fraud stories. Why? Why the gusto when he has already been 'discredited' to the general public. I guess the smear campaign didn't have the desired effect the first time. Please read this article that points out the facts...including the 'other' studies never mentioned by the 3 'stooges' that supported Wakefield's original findings. I guess those were all "frauds" too..**

National Autism Association Says BMJ Article is Yet Another Attempt to Thwart Vaccine Safety Research

WASHINGTON, Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The British Medical Journal published an article today attacking Dr. Andrew Wakefield and his work towards a better understanding of the medical issues involved in the development of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Dr. Wakefield co-authored the case series reported in the British Journal, The Lancet, in 1998, which identified a novel inflammatory bowel disease in children diagnosed with autism. The association between autism and bowel disease has been repeatedly confirmed by subsequent studies, (1) (2) (3) (4) including a consensus report published a year ago in Pediatrics.(5)

In recent years, US Federal Vaccine Court has conceded multiple times that immunizations have led to cases of autism, or "autistic-like" symptoms, and multiple sub-symptoms associated with the disorder. According to the US Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in 2008, 1322 cases of vaccine injury compensation settled out of court by the US Government in unpublished settlements. According to a statement from HRSA: "We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures."
