More vaccine fear

So even though I knew that all the anti-vaccine fear out there was based on exactly that, fear, I never knew the origins of the whole charade. Thanks go out to Science-Based Pharmacy for filling me in! Read the short but eloquent account of Dr. Andrew Wakefield's fall from grace in Britain after being exposed for his self-serving demonization of the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine which was later completely ripped apart by those concerned with facts. Dr. Wakefield recently had his medical license stripped. Interestingly, he is still a hero in the irrational American anti-vaccination camp.
