[Pharma newsgroup presence throwing mud Wakefield (to hide the fact the dangerous autism and bowel causing MMR vaccine has been in use since 1988), for the record. May be false name.]

Wakefield is wallowing in a mud bath entirely of his own manufacture.
These advertisements you keep posting for him are simply showing up
the way he is trying to distort reality. Unfortunately for him the
stench around his rotting ideas will never go away.

There isn't a shred of evidence to support this asinine ideas.
Wakefields reliance upon the flawed work of Unigenetics has been
proven to be worthless. His hypothesis depended upon finding measles
in the gut and it simply wasn't there. He is now chasing money, not

Would that involve burn marks from sitting on Ley lines?

This would have been quite a good rant had it not been for the trivial
point that the GMC proceeded to find him guilty of dishonesty
irresponsibility and misrepresentation.

Would that be the parents recruited by the lawyer he was also
providing paid advice for in their endeavour to sue for vaccine damage
or the parent of Child 10 with whom he was trying to set up a company,
Immunospecifics Biotechnologies Ltd, to develop "Transfer Factor" .

Not what the GMC decided.

Setting aside Wakefields earlier exhortation - that he not merely
welcomed but insisted upon the GMC investigation - if he felt the
parents were so much on his side why didn't he call any as witnesses
on his behalf?
It is all very well saying no parent complained - but also no parent
spoke in his defence at the GMC and he could have called any or all.

They were not excluded at all, except by Wakefield et al. There was
nothing to prevent Wakefield and the others from calling these parents
to speak on their behalf if they felt they had anything worthwhile to
contribute. They chose not to.

Therein lies the slight problem for proponents of this approach - no
measles virus (much less vaccine strain virus) was detected in the gut
of these children. The results Wakefield reported were false.

"Consecutively"? Almost all of these children [through their parents]
were actually clients and contacts of a UK solicitor, Richard Barr. In
February and June 1996, Barr wrote to numerous clients and contacts,
mainly people who'd got in touch following publicity and advised them
that those whose children had any of a list of possible symptoms of
Crohn's disease [such as bouts of diaorrhea, gut pain or even mouth
ulcers] should contact him for possible referral to Wakefield.
" the Panel is satisfied that these referrals did not constitute
routine referrals to the gastroenterology department. "

Nope, it charted the details of a group of children sent by a

Because the _claimants_ received the report by Dr Bustin on the
failures in Unigenetics upon which they relied. It was the
_claimants_ lawyers who told the court they no longer had a
