Big Pharma, the FDA, AMA and other medical associations have continued a recent trend of accusing conscientious healers of crimes that they themselves routinely commit or cover up. Unfortunately, these big self-interest protecting entities often get away with these false claims without scrutiny due to mainstream media's ready acceptance of their press releases (advertising dollars) and opinions, without further research, investigative scrutiny or updates.
Recently Dr. Andrew Wakefield was a victim of the BMJ's (British Medical Journal) injustice, which also helped hide vaccine injury science from public awareness.
Who is Dr. Andrew Wakefield and what has he done?
Dr. Wakefield was organizing clinical research on Crohn's disease, colitis and gastrointestinal disorders in young children. The research intended to determine if there was a link between those disorders and measles at the Royal Free Hospital in England. Dr. Wakefield published the results of this clinical study in the U.K. medical journal Lancet in 1998.
Children were brought to him because of his interest, but contrary to all accusations, he never treated them. He described himself as "the thinker" when Health Ranger Mike Adams recently interviewed him. In this particular study, he was the thinker for the team of doctors directly involved with the treatment.
Another accusation, that Dr. Wakefield asserted a definite link of MMR vaccines to autism was never published. He never made that claim. Some of his team colleagues put forth their interpretation that MMRs were linked to autism, but that was not part of Wakefield's Lancet paper. Dr. Wakefield was looking into the possible link of those commonly experienced gut disorders in children under five years old as a precursor to their autism related behavior.
That link to MMRs was actually made by the parents of those 12 participating children. They were doing fine until they received MMR vaccinations, and the parents reported this to Dr. Wakefield's team. Dr. Wakefield included the parents' reports in the case study findings. Including parents' observations in case study reports is highly appropriate.
Dr. Wakefield's only conclusion was the measles/gut disorder connection to autistic behavior possibilities merited further study.
There Really Was a Conspiracy
There are other motives from the usual suspects. The allegedly corrupt Murdoch empire'sSunday Timesis run by Rupert Murdoch's son James. The Murdoch family is heavily invested in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), avaccinemanufacturer. James Murdoch is even on GSKs board of directors.
James hired a freelance hack journalist, Brian Deer, to fabricate the Wakefield fabrication. It created a firestorm in London that ignited another vaccine promoter, Dr. Fiona Godlee, who happens to be the editor in chief for the British Journal of Medicine (BMJ). She propagated Deer's lies officially.
This pincer move encircled the U.K. Government's medical establishment and forced a five member GMC (General Medical Council) hearing on Dr. Wakefield. Perhaps the hearing intended to defend the U.K.'s stance on not awarding vaccine injury victim?
