Dr. Andrew Wakefield a VILLAIN or a HERO? Here's what the Mainstream Media has left out ...

in #vaccines4 years ago (edited)

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.

Misrepresentations of Dr. Wakefield's Bowel Disease-Autism Paper

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.

      Watch the 3-Minute News Clip Here of "[*JOHN WALKER-SMITH CLEARED*](https://youtu.be/u55MNglDkos)" 

"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."

I know that this is a very controversial topic ...
but if you care about children as much as I care about children...
surely we can all be civil and help each other discover the best way forward for all our children and future generations.

Sort:  

Bless this man, and his unshakable integrity! It brings me tears and goosebumps even just thinking about everything he has gone through, all because he puts humanity above profits.

hey @canadian-coconut thank you for your work on behalf of us all. may you be filled with joy today.

Thank-you marionjoe!

Interesting. I've never heard Wakefield speak. Even if the media image painted of him were true, there would still be enough information out there to make any true skeptic have concerns about conflict of interest and fraud in the CDC. It gets really scary when these concerns are met with hatred and ridicule. The issue is forbidden to talk about, which only makes it more of a concern that something is very wrong.

I know that I did not hear about Dr. Wakefield until several years after I learned about vaccinations. My oldest unvaccinated child must have been about 4 years old (he's now 12) when I realized who Dr. Wakefield was. And I had LOADS & LOADS of information against vaccinating my child without his research. Actually, autism itself wasn't a big part of my decision. Plus I had never heard of Jenny McCartney either.

Finally, after I kept reading in news articles that Dr. Andrew Wakefield and actress Jenny McCartney were THE reason that I had chosen not to vaccinate, I decided that I had better look up who they were and listen to a bit of what they had to say.

So, yes you are right that there is PLENTY of information out there to make one very, very skeptical about vaccinations.

Yes, I had the exact same experience researching vaccines, minus the children. That strategy to discredit a movement of new information I think is called the straw man fallacy. What about the trials not including the entire vaccine schedule, or the ridiculous vaccine schedule, or the history of fraud within pharmaceutical companies and the CDC, or conflict of interest, how washington, the CDC, FDA, and pharma is all one big revolving door? But most importantly, what about all the children who have unquestionably had serious adverse reactions, sometimes fatal? Even if we just look at the cases settled in court, isn't that enough to at least deserve a mature conversation about the whole thing? Instead I'll be labelled an "anti-vaxxer" even though I'm not against the science. I'm anti-exploitation, anti-manipulation, and anti-greed. You'd think there was some kind of conspiracy to manipulate public opinion.

Pharma..politicians..media..they are all in cahoots to enslave humanity.

Yes. Dr. Wakefield has a lot of integrity to keep trying to help children and get truth out, even though they destroyed his career and reputation. They win when good people do nothing.

It's not so easy for all to be right and survive with kids to consider sometimes. I admire him for everything he's doing. Educating people for the harm it can cause is hard enough without being discredited.

Thank you for a very well written post, It is because of people like you who research for truth, that the truth regarding vaccines will eventually surface to the top. And, it will be known to all how the Pharmaceutical industry deliberately poisoned everyone that received their vaccines. The tobacco industry thought they could get away with their lies but as everyone knows the truth came to light there. I believe that will happen with the Pharmaceutical companies too.

Thank-you so much Mary. I really appreciate your encouragement and also the work that you are doing in getting the word out there too, by contacting your elected representatives and speaking out. We must stop this assault on our children.

Thorough, thank you.

He is a cunt, and responsible for the biggest medical hoax in history. Do you realise his original "study" involved 12 sets of parents? Or that he was sponsored by a rival firm making an MMR vaccine?

Don't spread this cunt's bullshit around.

Cg

Do I realize that his study involved 12 sets of parents? OF COURSE! You never saw this picture in my article?

It is OBVIOUS that you never even read my well-researched article, as I happened to have highlighted above that it was only a Case Study of 12 people, and that Case Studies are always small, and that he never claimed that the MMR caused Autism in that Case Study.

Go ahead and read that part of the study for yourself before FLAGGING THIS POST and writing such an ignorant and rude response.

Do you think that this type of response could possibly change my mind? Why not try to understand what I have said and plead your case from a rational approach? I am not going to toss away my ability to READ and REASON and learn HISTORY and FACTS. I am not going to simply believe everything the media spews out without fact checking it myself.

The media you talk of, supported his bullshit for 12 years, they then claim his work was discredited. No it wasn't, it never had any credibility in the first place. He was sponsored by a rival firm making a triple vaccine, the scientific community were shouting very loudly at the media not to take this cunt seriously. Yet they did; they then woke up to the fact that theirs and his lies were causing deaths.

I say again, the man is a cunt, and you shouldn't spread his bullshit around. Which may be rude, but is not ignorant.

Here is the issue cryptogee.. Everyone needs to do their own research and make up their own mind. Ask yourself why you think you need to tell someone not to do something. Can you see if your being rational or is this fear; fear from getting people injured?

When I do my research I become aware of my own fear and how it may affect my views. So I go along carefully taking small steps and I work though it. With a little practice and time things become clear and at the very least they simply do not upset me anymore.

We have a real problem with large monopoly corporations and fake science so your on to something here I'll hand it to you. Seems like mostly everyone is aware of this. There is confusion about what is actually happening though. It is when we get tangled up in fear that we get cloudy vision (beer goggles if you will). If you really want to keep people safe let's practice so we can be professional and respect other peoples findings, views, and even opinions.

Very possibly so James; it's just when I read things about how a blatant fraudster, and somebody who triggered the biggest hoax in medical history, may be being misrepresented. When in fact the exact opposite happened it makes me mad.

You do realise that during this hoax, you couldn't find an article by one science correspondent in the popular media, not one. You had scientific giants like Nigella fucking Lawson, talking about MMR, autism and vaccines. Somebody who had at best, last done an experiment in school. The worst part is, people listened to her, and it all started because of Wakefield.

I rarely call people a cunt in print, however Wakefield is one I will happily use that language for, because he is one. He is responsible for the outbreak of measles in the UK around the time, and dozens of deaths from it. I make no apologies.

That is the point .. "popular media" is bought out.. Seriously it is that bad! No joke.. Look into it. They can't report it their carrier will be ruined and reputation discredited (just as your have seen with Wakefield). I'm not asking you to believe me, but I am presenting counter evidence to what you have seen. So now the rational thing for you to do is give that an honest investigation.

I understand your frustration. Remember this is a billion dollar industry though. I'm sure you have heard how corporations manipulate politicians with campaign donations right? I don't want to over-simplify it but you have a government passing laws that protect corporations from damages. And corporations that are basically so corrupt they collectively make bad decisions based on profit and ignore human health. They only want to stay under the radar but they act in ways that are clearly psychopathic. And yea, they resort to fear and even teasing and name calling as part of their damage control marketing.

The media is owned and manipulated too. If a doctor stands out the pharmaceutical industry can throw their millions of dollars around to try and discredit them. If the media gets out of line it is called carrier suicide. They do the same trick to fake science reports by bribing scientist. It is a lot of bribes and mafia like tactics.

It is really easy to find all the evidence and I'm sure you'll be convinced, however, I don't know when you'll be ready. It can be a tough pill to swallow but it is really good medicine (unlike the crap we get from the pharmaceutical industry - lol).

So in a way I'm in the same position you are .. What what I have learned there is now way I'm backing down either! Only because you are not bought out and getting people injured we are actually on the same side..

You don't have to apologize .. Basically almost everyone gets upset like this when they start hearing it. It gets easier ..

Obviously you can't think for yourself and are a "sheeple". Your gutter language speaks volumes of your lack of intelligence. Maybe if you were capable of doing some real research and looked at the thousands of studies proving the dangers of vaccines you may just learn something other than the filthy language you seem so proficient at. Dr Wakefield is a man of the highest integrity and thousands, if not millions of children world wide who will never know what life is all about, they will never know what it is like to fall in love, get married and have children of their own having had that right taken from them by being damaged by vaccines which could have all been prevented but for the British journalist Brian Deer who assassinated Dr Wakefield's character with his deliberate lies and false allegations on behalf of Big Pharma. He is the person you should throw your insults at.

Thank-you for your comment @pcgdc
I can see your passion for justice and the truth. I hope to read future posts from you and I have now followed you on Steemit. I didn't include info about Brian Deer in this article, but it would be a good follow-up article "The Assassination of Dr. Wakefield's Character by Journalist Brian Deer"

@pcgdc I say again, the man is a cunt, and if you don't like my language, tough, I'm not going to do anything about it. He was sponsored by a rival triple vaccine company, he was and is full of shit, and fuels conspiracy nuts like yourself.

Now tootle off and go and watch Alex Jones for a few hours to further fuel your misguided mind.

@cryptogee ...Your lack of proper language speaks to your lack of knowledge especially on this most important topic.

No it doesn't, it speaks to the fact that I think Andrew Wakefield is a cunt.
