    Autism-vaccine study was 'fraud,' journal says

    link

    For years, anti-vaccine folks have used this as part of their argument against getting children vaccinated, and MANY people believed it. Now, it is shown to be a compelte fraud. Parents who bought into this and whose children subsequently caught these diseases that the vaccines were meant to prevent should look at a lawsuit...

    PARIS (AFP) – A 1998 study that unleashed a major health scare by linking childhood autism to a triple vaccine was "an elaborate fraud," the British Medical Journal (BMJ) charged Thursday.

    Blamed for a disastrous boycott of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine in Britain, the study was retracted by The Lancet last year and its senior author disgraced, after the country's longest-running hearing, for conflict of interest and unethical treatment of patients.

    Is this a bad time to tell you that the guy who did the "research" this was based on retracted his claim a long time ago?

    That's funny... the CNN report I just saw had the very guy on saying that he stands by it. The retractees were those who did the research along-side him...

    The anti-vaccination movement is one that continues to baffle me. There is literally ZERO solid evidence for it to stand on and what evidence there is crumbles under ANY sort of scrutiny...yet people still buy into it.

    That's probably their only chance for a lawsuit, since the law prohibits suing the drug companies that make the vaccine that you blindly inject your child with. Besides, if no one around you has polio, why vaccinate for it, everyone else's kids will take the risk while yours take no risk and still don't get the disease. BTW, make sure you get your flu shots, I don't wanna miss any work this winter.

    There are VOLUMES of information about what goes into vaccines. If the injection is blind, the only person to blame is the parent.

    Journal: Study linking vaccine to autism was fraud Read more: http://www.foxnews.com

    LONDON – The first study to link a childhood vaccine to autism was based on doctored information about the children involved, according to a new report on the widely discredited research.
    The conclusions of the 1998 paper by Andrew Wakefield and colleagues was renounced by 10 of its 13 authors and later retracted by the medical journal Lancet, where it was published. Still, the suggestion the MMR shot was connected to autism spooked parents worldwide and immunization rates for measles, mumps and rubella have never fully recovered.
    A new examination found, by comparing the reported diagnoses in the paper to hospital records, that Wakefield and colleagues altered facts about patients in their study.
    The analysis, by British journalist Brian Deer, found that despite the claim in Wakefield's paper that the 12 children studied were normal until they had the MMR shot, five had previously documented developmental problems. Deer also found that all the cases were somehow misrepresented when he compared data from medical records and the children's parents.

    Amazing! Peer reviewed science failed us? I wonder what other failures of Peer Review are out there...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This is how science is supposed to work: all knowledge is tentative and all conclusions are suspect.

    With one stipulation: you have to have informed awareness of the advantages and limitations of any given experiment before you interpose your own judgment. Keep in mind that many scientists have been disavowing this particular study for years, even before this fraud came to light.
