Conversely, it is possible to fall ill despite living a life of unruffled stability.
In medicine, the most important clue to resolving the cause of a disease is to identify the trigger. In the case of autism, the exponential increase in the epidemic began in the s is readily documented. Is it sheer coincidence that beginning inCDC recommended universal vaccination of newborn infants with thimerosal-laced Hepatitis B vaccine?
This was the first in a series of three vaccinations to be administered during the first year of life. The argument that correlation is no proof of causation has been used to prevent meaningful research that could identify the triggers of the autism epidemic.
Instead, the focus of vaccine research has been tightly controlled to searching for a genetic cause, or population surveys in epidemiological studies, neither of which have come close to identifying the triggers for autism. As a result, these children were consigned to the ministration of psychiatry, whose treatments — i.
The corrupting influence of the pharmaceutical industry on medical research and its published literature, has derailed the medical profession from its humanitarian mission and its professional objectivity.
The Wakefield MMR saga is a case study that encapsulates how various, ubiquitous corrupting financial influences have merged, forming an insurmountable coalition: The objective of those who fomented the witch hunt against Dr.
Wakefield was to protect their financial stake in the MMR, and to safeguard public policies that ensure high utilization of vaccines. Vaccine stakeholders were and are determined to suppress independent vaccine safety research that might reveal inconvenient safety problems that could threaten vaccination rates, resulting in decreased profits.
Godlee took principled positions on issues, I admired her. Godlee stepped so far beyond her legitimate editorial role, and used the authority of her office as the editor-in-chief of a widely read medical journal to pronounce Dr.
Andrew Wakefield within the broad medical-scientific community. As will be documented, Dr. The title of this muckraking editorial declared: Clearly, the editorial and accompanying articles by Deer were crafted for maximum injurious impact, aimed at destroying Dr.
For a medical journal to make such serious accusations against a doctor is unprecedented. The dissemination of the BMJ editorial was steered by a coordinated public relations blitzkrieg of articles, editorials, press releases and CNN interviews that reverberated around the globe.
It accused a researcher, Andrew Wakefield, of outright fraud.
As I will document, no evidence has ever been presented to substantiate the charge of fraud against Dr. When those BMJ conflicts were exposed in [by this author], Dr.
The Wakefield vilification campaign was spearheaded by Murdoch in collusion with UK government officials. An email authored by a Merck executive stated: Scientists are well aware that epidemiological studies cannot prove that multi-valent combined viruses vaccines do not cause autism, because even the most accurate studies, cannot disprove a causal connection in a relatively small number of cases.
Yet, epidemiological studies are the preferred paradigm for vaccine research. The same network of stakeholders, control the channels of information, and public discourse regarding vaccine-related issues.
They control the gateways to journal publication, ensuring that reports containing negative findings are not published in influential high impact journals, and that favorable reports assuring the safety of vaccines are regularly published and widely disseminated.
At least 16 epidemiological studies have been published about MMR vaccines, thimerosal and autism. Indeed, vaccine promoters cite the volume of favorable epidemiological studies as conclusive evidence: Paul Offit  Dr.CASE STUDY 1 Attention Deﬁ cit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and young people Alison Coad Georgia is 10 and lives with her mum, Emma, her dad, Nick and her younger brother Sam, aged 7.
