It is a sad state of affairs when a physician who is looking for the facts is vilified by the enormous pharmaceutical industry. The parents of autistic children instinctively know that Dr Andrew Wakefield's findings ring true with the their own experiences. Now that enough people have become aware of the link between vaccines and autism, it threatens to jeopardize the cash cow of big pharma. Make no mistake, this has more to do with Wall St. than it does with wellness. Lori Jacobs
The subject is autism; the suspect is childhood vaccines. This is the account of how a doctor confronted first a disease, and then the medical system that sought and still seeks to deny that disease, leaving millions of children to suffer and a world at risk. In 1995 Wakefield came to a fork in the road. As an academic gastroenterologist at the Royal Free School of Medicine and the University of London, Wakefield was presented with a professional challenge and confronted by a moral choice. Previously normal children were, according to their parents, regressing into autism and developing intestinal problems - many parents blamed the MMR vaccine. Trusting in his medical training, parental narrative, and above all, the instinct of mothers for their children's wellbeing, he chose the hard road. Walk that road now, here; some already have - the parents of affected children. Many will, either as parents or grandparents, as the worldwide tsunami of childhood developmental disorders break hearts and bankrupts educational and healthcare infrastructures. Dr. Wakefield provides the facts, and an explanation of the problem that confronted him and his colleagues so many years ago. He does this in a detailed forensic analysis of the lies, obfuscation, cover ups, and the dystopian science and medicine that panders to commercial interest at the expense of your children. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Statement From Dr. Andrew Wakefield: No Fraud. No Hoax. No Profit Motive.
AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Andrew Wakefield issued the following statement today on the recent British Medical Journal articles: "The British Medical Journal and reporter Brian Deer recently alleged that my 1998 research paper was 'a hoax' and 'an elaborate fraud' and that my motivation was profit. "I want to make one thing crystal clear for the record - my research and the serious medical problems found in those children were not a hoax and there was no fraud whatsoever. Nor did I seek to profit from our findings. "I stand by the Lancet paper's methodology and the results which call for more research into whether environmental triggers cause gastrointestinal disease and developmental regression in children.
In fact, despite media reports to the contrary, the results of my research have been duplicated in five other countries (to see citations to studies, visit.
) "It is not unexpected to see poor reporting and misinformation coming from Brian Deer, the lead reporter of the recent BMJ coverage. But to see coverage in other media that cites Deer's shoddy journalism in the BMJ as a final justification to claim there is no link between vaccines and autism is ludicrous.
The MMR is only one vaccine of the eleven vaccinations on the pediatric schedule that has been studied for causing developmental problems such as autism. That is fact, not opinion. Any medical professional, government official or journalist who states that the case is closed on whether vaccines cause autism is jumping to conclusions without the research to back it up. "I continue to fully support more independent research to determine if environmental triggers, including vaccines, are causing autism and other developmental problems. The current rate of autism is 1 in 110 children in the United States and 1 in 64 children in the U.K. My goal has always been and will remain the health and safety of children. Since the Lancet paper, I have lost my job, my career and my country. To claim that my motivation was profit is patently untrue. I will not be deterred - this issue is far too important."

UPDATE September 2014
On August 27, 2014 a whistleblower from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) came forward to admit the role he played in covering up the link between the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine and autism. The CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson contacted Dr. Brian Hooker, (a PhD scientist, and father of a vaccine damaged child) months ago to tell him that the CDC had committed egregious fraud in 2004, when it gave the MMR vaccine a free pass. Other papers suggest they knew of this link in 2002. Dr. William Thompson was quoted as saying, “I have great shame now when I meet families with kids with autism because I have been part of the problem.” and “It’s the lowest part of my career that I went along with that paper. I’m not going to lie. I’ve basically have stopped lying.”
One study showed that that African-American boys receiving their first MMR vaccine before 36 months of age are 3.4 times more likely to develop autism vs. after 36 months of age. The standard vaccine schedule requires babies to have the MMR vaccine on their first birthday
. This relationship between the age the MMR vaccine was first given and autism incidence in African-American boys was hidden by CDC researchers. One such way they altered the findings after the study was by discarding the data of the children who didn’t have valid Georgia birth certificates. This brought the data to within an acceptable
range. Can you say, “cooking the books?”
You would think that this would be breaking news but I have yet to see this report on mainstream news. Perhaps even more disturbing is that many pages on the internet that contain the actual data have been disappearing like a demented game of whack a mole. Make no mistake; there are some very powerful interests at stake here. Now it has come to light that for at least ten years that the vaccine manufacturers and the CDC knew of the connection between the MMR vaccine and Autism Spectrum Disorder, the lawsuits will commence! This is what they were trying to avoid all along.
How many children were injured because of greed? Let’s take a look at the increase in Autism.
the prevalence of Autism was 1 in 2500 - 2000
: rates rise to 1 in 500 - 2004
: 1 in 166 children are affected with Autism - 2009
: 1 in 91 - 2012
: 1 in 88 children diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. And drum roll please… according to the CDC the present rate is 1 in 68. When do we say, “Enough is enough?!”
I’m not saying that the MMR vaccine is the sole cause of the high Autism rate. I suspect it has some connection with increasingly toxic pesticides, GMOs, chemical food additives and geo-engineering as well. But if this kind of maleficent cover up is going on in the medical industry, one has to suppose the same is happening in the food industry, chemical, biotechnology and agricultural industry.
In 1998 through the encouragement of his patient’s parents, Dr. Andrew Wakefield discovered and reported on intestinal disease in children with autism. Based upon the medical histories of the children he linked their disease and their autistic regression to the MMR vaccine. He has since been subjected to relentless personal and professional attacks in the media, and from governments, doctors and the pharmaceutical industry. Every aspect of his research was ridiculed through outright lies. Though he is highly regarded in the Autism community because of his dedication and integrity, if you Google his name today you will still see all the lies about him. You will even see a special ad with his photo and a description stating, “ Andrew Jeremy Wakefield is a British former surgeon and medical researcher, known for his fraudulent 1998 research paper in support of the now-discredited claim that there is a link between the MMR vaccine, and the appearance of autism
and bowel disease.” Thank you Dr Wakefield! You always followed the truth no matter how detrimental it was to you and your career.
