Jenny McCarthy, Get Out Your Checkbook
A now-retracted British study that linked autism to childhood vaccines was an "elaborate fraud" that has done long-lasting damage to public health, a leading medical publication reported Wednesday.
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.
I wonder if McCarthy at all interested in making things right to the families of the children she helped to sicken and kill through her outrageous efforts to encourage people not to vaccinate?
