The GMC (the independent body of medical regulators in the UK, rather like the AMA in the US) didn’t investigate whether his claims were correct or not — and let’s be very clear, his claims have been shown beyond any doubt to be totally wrong — only whether he acted ethically in his research. What they found is that his research (involving spinal taps of children) was against the children’s clinical interest, that Wakefield was unqualified to perform the test, and that he had no ethical approval to do them. Wow. Again, let’s be clear: that’s a whole lot of ethical damnation from the UK’s leading medical board. Not to pile on here, but I was rather surprised that they didn’t mention the claims — supported by a lot of evidence — that on top of all that unethical behavior, he may have faked his results, too. There’s also no mention of his grave conflict of interest– at the time he published his paper slamming vaccines and which started the antivax craze, he was developing an alternative to vaccinations, so he had a very large monetary incentive to make the public distrust vaccines.

What's funny is that the dude who wrote that also writes about how people are crazy if they deny Global Warming... So that says a lot about the dude.quashpdarkman;386963 wrote:

I don't believe all vaccines are bad and I don't believe that all vaccines are good. I do know that Scientists who have an incredible amount of say today, wrote back in the 70's about how they would fuck us up with vaccines.. That's all I can say. I've had all my vaccines when I was a kid and I'm doing fine, (As far as I can tell)... So, I really don't know what's true and whats not when it comes to vaccines. I'll take the chance right now to say that, if I ever said that "All vaccines are bad", then i was wrong. I don't believe that. What I know, is that I don't really know about vaccines. And it's very had to believe anyone because there are "experts" from all sides who say many different things.
