For those with "Bowel Disease", A New Controversy Over Vaccine Research?
CBS News Investigative Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson asked Dr. Andrew Wakefield about the controversy surrounding his original study in 1998 on autistic children and MMR vaccine and his work including a recent study comparing the developmental differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated animals.
Dr. Wakefield’s study, Delayed Acquisition of Neonatal Reflexes…, shows significant harm from one birth dose of a mercury-containing vaccine.
Importantly, it concludes that “there is a bowel disease in children with autism which is new and has not been investigated and may well be related to the developmental regression since they occur around the same time…and the association needs to be thoroughly investigated.”
This remarkable interview highlights both Ms. Attkisson journalistic integrity and Dr. Wakefield’s courageous advocacy, as well as the integrity of CBS for allowing Ms. Atkisson to do her job so well.
For those managing the one in three American children with autism, allergies, ADHD or asthma, it may be worth a minute or two to watch the CBS Story with Sharyl Atkisson and Dr. Andrew Wakefield.
