Ten Years of Bad Science

Another notch in Lancet's bedpost, too:

THE doctor who sparked the scare over the safety of the MMR vaccine for children changed and misreported results in his research, creating the appearance of a possible link with autism, a Sunday Times investigation has 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.

Wakefield has been bending the ear of the Congress for ten years now and scaring the bejebus out of parents. To their credit, the CDC and the UK's Department of Health insisted that his research was faulty from the very beginning.

Update: Whenever you talk about vaccine scares you get people going on about thimerosal. Just FYI: the MMR jab never contained thimerosal. Never. Ever.
