Andrew Wakefield’s faked research kills children

The Sunday Times has an article finding that Andrew Wakefield faked the research for his 1998 article which found a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. The article also points out that as a result of his frightening parents out of taking up the MMR vaccine, the rate of measles in the UK has gone up by more than 2000% and two children died from it last year alone. Further comment is superfluous.

    Agreed. If we all hold off until everyone is onboard then we don’t change anything.

    By being good citizens ourselves we’re both proving that it’s possible, and moving the debate forward (or shifting the Overton window).
