So the world deceived that vaccines are dangerous

In February 1998, The Lancet, one of the world’s most respected medical journals, published a study in which Andrew Wakefield and colleagues described a possible link between the MPR vaccine, the MMR vaccine, and autism and intestinal problems. in twelve children. Six years later, journalist Brian Deere of the British newspaper The Sunday Times was able to uncover a number of errors related to the study.

The first thing Brian Deere was able to show was that Andrew Wakefield had an agreement with a lawyer who wanted to sue the vaccine companies. He had received money to prove that vaccinations infected children. The 12 children in the study had parents with the goal of creating vaccine manufacturers, says Maria Gunther at Studio DN.

In addition to Wakefield’s financial interests, it was also found that information about the children in the study was incorrect.

– The study reported that children showed signs of autism days after the MPR vaccination, but this was not true at all. Some already had autism, while others did not have the diagnosis.

Exposing the inaccuracy, Brian Deere believes that Andrew Wakefield’s study has caused disease and fear of vaccines among parents and that it exploits and blames parents of children with autism.

In this section, you’ll also discover how the Wakefield study affects vaccination readiness today—and how it has earned star status among American vaccine opponents.
