The doctor at the centre of the MMR controversy
"failed in his duties as a responsible
consultant", the General Medical Council (GMC)
has ruled


Dr Andrew Wakefield, the doctor at the centre of the MMR controversy


Dr Andrew Wakefield showed a "callous disregard"
for children's suffering and abused his position
of trust, the GMC's disciplinary panel found.
His conduct brought the medical profession "into
disrepute" after he took blood samples from
youngsters at his son's birthday party in return
for payments of £5.
He also acted dishonestly and was misleading and
irresponsible in the way he described research
later published in The Lancet medical journal,
the panel of experts ruled at a hearing in London.
Dr Wakefield now faces being struck off the
medical register after the panel decided the
allegations against him could amount to serious
professional misconduct, which will be decided at
a later date.
Parents who believe their children were damaged
by the MMR jab heckled the GMC panel as its
members delivered their findings.
Dr Wakefield - who has argued that he had been
acting in the children's best interests - did not
attend the hearing today, which has sat for 148
days over a two-and-a-half-year period.
His research on 12 children with bowel disorders
and autism was published in The Lancet in 1998.
Although it didn't make a proven link with the
MMR vaccine, Dr Wakefield subsequently warned
parents to have single jabs against measles,
mumps and rubella. The claim has been widely
discredited.
Sunday Times journalist Brian Deer, whose
investigations sparked the inquiry, told Sky News
that the GMC had to act.
But Rochelle Poulter, whose son Matthew was
involved in the study, said Andrew Wakefield was
a compassionate doctor.
Matthew had been soiling himself up to seven
times a day, but his symptoms improved after
being diagnosed and treated by Dr Wakefield.
"If I did not feel they were acting in his best
interests I would not have let them investigate
him in the first place," she said.
"Sometimes you have to be a bit self-sacrificing
to improve things, not just your own child, but
for other children too."
The MMR scare led to a sharp drop in the number
of children having the jab. Although uptake has
risen as safety fears recede, more than 1200
children last year developed measles.
Dr Helen Bedford, lecturer at the Institute of
Child Health, said: "Parents should be reassured
that there is a large body of good scientific
evidence which shows MMR is not linked to autism
and bowel disease."

Try attacking the message not the messenger.

Or can't you move beyond the Fallacies... Better yet keep doing what
you are and your will be continued to be dismissed by everyone else.

I would love to see the AltNuts try to justify Wakefield's actions.
Just once.

They won't, as it violates Commandment #4 of AltDumb, i.e. never
criticize anyone who agrees with you, even if you know they are
wrong.
