"Britain bans doctor who linked autism to vaccine"

2 posts in this topic

LONDON – Britain's top medical group on Monday banned a doctor whose research suggesting a link between a common vaccine and autism caused millions of parents worldwide to abandon the shot for measles, mumps and rubella.
Wakefield said the council's ruling against him — which cited alleged unethical conduct in carrying out his research — had been "made from the outset" and vowed to continue his research into the link between vaccines and autism.
Two rulings by a special branch of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in March and last year found no link between vaccines and autism. But more than 5,500 claims have been filed by families seeking compensation for children believed to have been hurt by the measles vaccine.

Wakefield has the right to appeal the ruling, which takes effect within 28 days.

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.--Galileo Galilei

And yes, I know this guy is a quack. What he is doing borders on fraud, and as soon as fraud can be proven, he should be taken to Court. Until then, his opponents, in this scientific matter, are criminals for resorting to this tactic against him (right as they may be about the science).
