An investigation published by the British medical journal BMJ concludes the study’s author, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, misrepresented or altered the medical histories of all 12 of the patients whose cases formed the basis of the 1998 study — and that there was “no doubt” Wakefield was responsible.

Can we finally move on and get your children vaccinated now? There is no scientific evidence that proves a link between vaccinations and autism. Besides, would you rather have an autistic child or one that dies from polio?

Fear mongering, hysteria and pseudoscience are why so many diseases that were once sought to be eliminated are making such a strong comeback.
