This is an astonishing interview. The public statements made by Dr. Wakefield here were some of the most damning I've ever heard. He accused Dr. Gerberding and Dr. De Stefano of fraud and criminal cover-up of the truth about vaccine damage. We are destroying the health of a generation of children through the total lack of government oversight. It has to stop.
In this hour long discussion, Dr. Wakefield talked about his work on the MMR vaccine and bowel disease/autism, including the retribution he personally experienced. He explained the legal issues he became involved in when parents made claims against the vaccine maker whose vaccine injured their children. He came to the conclusion that "these [official] safety studies are totally inadequate." He urged the use of single vaccines instead of the combined MMR vaccine, and in response, vaccine makers stopped making the separate shots.
Wakefield discussed the politics involved in this controversy and the pressure put on those who speak out.
He made the stunning statement:"The notion of protecting children against serious infectious disease using safe and effective vaccines is laudable. Unfortunately, none of the vaccines that are currently on the schedule, in my opinion, come anywhere close to meeting those criteria, either alone, but most particularly in combination."
Wakefield was most critical in his remarks about the ethic/motivations of the vaccine industry and Brian Deer.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Stacy Francis for allowing Dr. Wakefield this opportunity to explain what happened to him and how it changed his life.
