This debate will continue until we acknowledge that this is not just about the science. There are a lot of people who would be implicated if it's clearly recognized that an unsafe, unchecked vaccine schedule is behind the explosion in autism.
So many in the media can repeat the claims that Brian Deer made in the British Medical Journal but they don't cite any of Wakefield's responses in his recent book, Callous Disregard. In Callous Disregard, he meticulously addresses each of the charges made by Deer and the General Medical Council in the UK and explains why they're each false. http://www.amazon.com/Callous-Disregard-Autism-Vaccines-Tragedy/dp/1616081694/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1296170749&sr=8-1
In his book he wrote about the reasons officials have for denying any link between the MMR and autism:
The British government knowingly licensed an unsafe vaccine. They failed to warn parents about possible life-threatening side effects. They intentionally had only passive surveillance for adverse events. They secretly indemnified the vaccine maker. They used false and misleading information to promote the vaccine.
We're continually told that Wakefield falsified patients' records, yet we never get to heard from a single parent from the Lancet study. This video shows what those parents have to say. http://www.viddler.com/explore/ziggy/videos/1/>
We're in the midst of a health care disaster because of autism. One percent of children, almost two percent of boys have autism. No official can tell us why. There is nothing they can tell a pregnant woman to do to prevent her child from also being diagnosed with autism. The only thing they're sure of is that their vaccine program isn't the cause. With 80 percent of autistic Americans under the age of 21, one can only imagine the impact autism will soon have on this country when there are hundreds of thousands of dependent adults to be cared for by the taxpayers.
