What was Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s “crime”?
Dr Wakefield’s special interest was inflammatory bowel disease and this paper reported a case series of 12 children with developmental disorders whose mothers also described a constellation of bowel symptoms appearing shortly after their child’s vaccination.
Wakefield’s co-authors included specialist physicians in psychiatry, histopathology, radiology and gastroenterology. After carefully documenting their research findings in the paper, the investigators cautiously concluded: “We have identified a chronic enterocolitis in children that may be related to neuropsychiatric dysfunction. In most cases, onset of symptoms was after measles, mumps, and rubella immunisation. Further investigations are needed to examine this syndrome and it’s possible relation to this vaccine.”
19 August, 2023 – Fact-Checking From Ignorance is Misinformation: What FactCheck.org Gets Wrong About Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and About Vaccines and Autism
Factcheck.org is, once again, fact-checked by Dr. Lyons-Weiler and their opinion-based claims are debunked. Problem #1 The first problem is that there ARE studies that have found links between vaccines and autism. Here’s a figure of the CDC schedule in 2015. Problem #2
The second problem is two-fold: the studies that are alleged to have reported no association suffered miserably from low statistical power, they tested the wrong hypothesis..
26 June, 2023 – Highly acclaimed Madsen study (2002) is the wrong way to determine whether MMR causes autism
If we want to see if the MMR vaccine causes autism, the best and simplest way to do that is simply to plot every autism case relative to the closest MMR vaccination date of that child. The date is the date when the parent or expert observer first noticed telltale ASD behaviors (and not when a clinical diagnosis is made which could be years later).
4 June, 2023 – How can I be so sure that vaccines cause autism? I asked the ONE question that no autism researcher has EVER asked.
I asked 642 parents who had previously reported having an autistic child in previous surveys to fill out my survey. I received 273 responses.
58 parents reported first seeing autistic behaviors within a month AFTER a vaccine appointment.
0 parents reported first seeing autistic behaviors within a month BEFORE a vaccine appointment.
Study Design and Conduct Commit Type II Error: Failing to Find a True Association
28 February, 1998 – RETRACTED: Ileal-lymphoid-nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorder in children
” We have identified a chronic enterocolitis in children that may be related to neuropsychiatric dysfunction. In most cases, onset of symptoms was after measles, mumps, and rubella immunisation. Further investigations are needed to examine this syndrome and its possible relation to this vaccine.”
The CDC Finally Capitulated To ICAN’s Legal Demands and Removed the Claim that “Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism” From Its Website!
