Dr. Andrew Wakefield a VILLAIN or a HERO? Here's what the Mainstream Media has left out ...
In case you haven't noticed, every time that a possible link between Vaccines and Autism is brought out, the media IMMEDIATELY mentions the "discredited" and "fraudulent" British Doctor Andrew Wakefield.
Dr. Andrew Wakefield is the Director of the documentary VaxXed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.
In the video below, Producer of VaxXed, Del Bigtree, schools a caller on the TRUTH about Dr. Andrew Wakefield.

Here's the TRUTH:
The paper that the Lancet retracted, was NOT A STUDY OF VACCINES AND AUTISM. That is the beginning of the hoax surrounding Dr. Wakefield's paper.
The paper was a study of a NOVEL BOWEL DISEASE and AUTISM.
After Dr. Wakefield, a Gastroenterologist, published a paper about Chrohn's disease, a mother called him and said that her son had the same gut disease, which started after her son developed autism. Her child was in writhing pain.
What the paper DID prove was that there was a distinct intestinal disease going along with autism. They found that when they would clear the gut out to do a colonoscopy the day before to look at the intestinal tracts of these children, that many of the mannerisms would disappear, like the head banging and the rocking.
What the paper pointed out is that autism is not just a neurological disease, but that there is a connection to the intestinal tract.
The connection to the vaccine, was ONLY A SIDE NOTE in the paper.
8 out of 12 of the parents said that the autism developed right after the MMR Vaccine.
It was a CASE STUDY. Case studies are small! This was only the beginning, first look at an issue.
In doing a Case Study, you MUST document everything that everyone says, including all of the doctors that saw the child, all of the background, and when 8 out of 12 parents said that the MMR caused the Autism, you must document it! The other 12 scientists that were working with Andy did have a problem with publishing it because their funding came from Pharmaceutial companies. Andy asked them a question -- he asked, "If the parents had said that 8 out of 12 children developed autism after coming down with the ACTUAL measles, would you have published it?" They said "Yes." So Andy convinced them to include the parents' comments. These other reputable 12 scientists had to put their signatures on the study beside Dr. Andrew Wakefield's.
The results of the study were submitted to The Lancet, a British medical journal, for publication in February 1998. The paper stated:
“We did not prove an association between measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine and the syndrome described. Virological studies are underway that may help to resolve the issues. If there is a causal link between measles, mumps and rubella vaccine and this syndrome, a rising incidence might be anticipated after the introduction of this vaccine in the UK in 1988. Published evidence is inadequate to show whether there is a change…”
The paper wasn't retracted by the Lancet until years later. The Pharmaceutical company didn't want this information out there. Andy's medical license was also revoked.
The horrific claim that Andy abused handicapped children, was by a journalist and was supposed to be because he did colonoscopies on the children. Well how are you supposed to discover gut disease without a colonoscopy? How is that child abuse?
Below is a more complete explanation to the various assertions made against Dr. Andrew Wakefield in the media.
This video clip below is really, really good. A woman in the audience after a screening of VaxXed, doesn't realize that she is talking to the Dr. Andrew Wakefield, as she informs him that this movie is discredited simply from the fact that a fraud like him created it. Listen to his AMAZING and humble response. You can clearly see that he is a man of deep integrity.

QUOTE From Above Video
"Do people think that it's better to take the controversial person away and discard them? Because it will happen to everybody who stands up for these children and these parents will be systematically discredited. In whose eyes? The eyes of the media -- a media owned by the Pharmaceutical Industry. Should people walk away? Turn their back? Or should people stand up?" ... Dr. Andrew Wakefield
Personally, I would like to thank Dr. Andrew Wakefield for continuing on, despite the persecution, to stand up for ill and ignored children. If only the world had recognized earlier how to help these autistic people heal from their pain by healing their intestinal disorders. Instead, parents of autistic children who KNOW that their children are suffering bowel disorders are told that their child's issues are only neurological! Some Gastroenterologists completely refuse to treat Autistic people. How inhumane is that? They leave these people suffering just because they are autistic.
Dr. Wakefield's colleague, Dr. John Walker-Smith was found innocent of all charges in March 2012 after 8 long years in court, the longest hearing in GMC history. Dr. Wakefield did not have the means to pursue such a court case, but if he had he would have been found innocent along with Dr. John Walker-Smith since the origin of the charges was the same.

"We are absolutely delighted with this judgment, which vindicates Professor Walker-Smith. John Walker-Smith was one of the world's leading gastroenterologists. It was incomprehensible that he should have been threatened with being struck off in the first place.
This judgment calls into question the independence and competence of the GMC, which was determined all along to pursue a witch-hunt against Professor Walker-Smith, Dr. Andrew Wakefield and Professor Simon Murch after they reported their research into the link between bowel disease and regressive autism."
Throughout the hearings (the longest in GMC history) the GMC deliberately chose to cherry-pick the evidence to suit their prejudice against these doctors, who had always acted in the very best interests of the children they treated."
