Dear AofA readers. For many years, one of our main focuses was the excoriation of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, author of Ileal-lymphoid-nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and
pervasive developmental disorder in children. You can read John Stone's first AofA piece from November 20, 2008 titled, A Political Trial in London. In early 2004 the media campaign against Andrew Wakefield was gathering pace. In particular, the London Times and Guardian newspapers were increasingly peppered with sarcastic comments about Wakefield and the MMR-autism theory, mostly coming from people with no direct knowledge of the science – but who nevertheless felt the spontaneous need to offer an opinion.
Wakefield was a brilliant, caring, young British Gastroenterologist. His medical career and reputation were sacked more times than Zappe in the Patriot's game last Sunday for putting forth a hypothesis (the bedrock of science) that involved the MMR vaccine. It's critical that what happened to him is never forgotten in the current narrative regarding vaccination. Dr. Wakefield NEVER gave up trying to help children with autism and GI problems. We will never forget his courage.
There is a new Substack called "Euripides," whose author we know well. This Substack will document the Wakefield case for a new generation. We invite you to check it out:
The series documents the deliberate elaborate intentional and systematic fabrications perpetrated by three editors of the British Medical Journal in 2011. These editors publicly accused a doctor, Andrew Wakefield, of committing fraud in a scientific paper published in the Lancet medical journal which implicated the MMR vaccine in causing autism in children.
Five short introductory videos give a comprehensive overview free of charge without a paid subscription.
The full video series available to subscribers provides a detailed account of the history and background and what was done in each of the eight steps. You will also get detailed evidence with quotes from the medical records of the children concerned. The anonymised medical records were read out in public in legal proceedings in England.
IMPORTANT: To allow time for you, your family, friends and associates to subscribe, the first free to view/listen video and audio will be released in a few weeks. Take a free subscription to receive an email alert when content is released. VISIT THE SUBSTACK HERE.
