The full UNCUT interview that ABC World News conducted with Del Bigtree of the “VAXXED” documentary which was pulled hours before the Tribeca Film Festival – a decision that Robert De Niro, father of an autistic son, now regrets.
No it’s not new news but essential reading if you missed the entire affair and, furthermore, the main point is that despite new evidence from multiple sources Wikipedia is less than honest to the point of extreme bias while mainstream media are profoundly guilty of a whitewash by continually referring to the case in terms of ‘Dr Andrew Wakefield vaccine demon’ while faling to clarify that the paper which precipitated the whole sordid affair was written by a research team of twelve top specialists pre-eminent in their field – gastroenterology – and the paper made no specific reference to MMR and autism leading one to speculate that the entire case was an out and out witch hunt against Andrew Wakefield.
Here’s a brief rundown of events.
28 January 2010 Dr Andrew Wakefield was struck off the UK medical register and therefore barred from practising medicine in the UK for allegedly falsifying data as part of a research paper which demonstrated a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. Published in The Lancet, the paper was retracted by BMC (British Medical Council).
Dr. Wakefield’s research regarding the MMR vaccine and its link to bowel disease and autism was originally published in the Lancet until that is when journalist Brian Deer published an article in the British Medical Journal criticizing Dr. Wakefield and accusing him of fraud. As a result, his study in the Lancet was retracted. Dr. Wakefield, and one of the co-authors of the retracted article, Prof. John Walker-Smith, were barred from practicing medicine by the United Kingdom’s General Medical Council regulatory board.
Naturally, the research findings and the subsequent action against Wakefield caused a storm of controversy concerning the possible link between the vaccine and autism which resulted in a significant decline in parents having their children vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella.
Fast forward to 2014 when a top research scientist working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a key role in helping Dr. Brian Hooker of the Focus Autism Foundation uncover data manipulation by the CDC that obscured a higher incidence of autism in African-American boys. The whistleblower came to the attention of Hooker, a PhD in biochemical engineering, after he had made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for original data on the DeStefano et al MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and autism study.
Dr. Hooker’s study, published August 8 in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Translational Neurodegeneration, shows that African-American boys receiving their first MMR vaccine before 36 months of age are 3.4 times more likely to develop autism vs. after 36 months.
According to Dr. Hooker, the CDC whistleblower guided him to evidence that a statistically significant relationship between the age the MMR vaccine was first given and autism incidence in African-American boys was hidden by CDC researchers.
Dr. William Thompson of the CDC coming forward as a whistleblower to confess that the CDC covered up data linking vaccines to autism subsequently issued an abject professional and personal apology to Dr Wakefield. Since that time other studies have confirmed Wakefield’s (and his team) original research findings …
- A new investigation into Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s hotly contested MMR-autism study concluded there was no fraud committed by Dr. Wakefield
- At least 28 studies from around the world support Dr. Wakefield’s controversial findings; Dr. Wakefield has also published dozens of peer-reviewed papers looking at the mechanism and cause of inflammatory bowel disease, and has extensively investigated the brain-bowel connection in the context of children with developmental disorders such as autism.
- Growing research is now supporting the link between gastrointestinal disturbances and autism; it could be that if your child has suboptimal gut flora, vaccines can become the proverbial “last straw”—the trigger that sends his/her immune system over the edge into the development of chronic heath problems
Aside from the sensationalist expose, mainstream media has maintained a relative silence over the facts that both the BMJ and Lancet have strong financial ties to the manufacturer of the MMR vaccine. (See: BMJ & Lancet Wedded to Merck CME Partnership) and that Dr. Andrew’s co-author in the study, Prof. John Walker-Smith, fought an expensive legal battle against the United Kingdom’s General Medical Council and won. He was completely exonerated.
Despite these, eventual, revelations of a cover up by the CDC and complete vindication of Dr Andrew Wakefield and his co-authors, the Wkipedia article on Dr Wakefield stands uncorrected with the opening statement that Andrew Wakefield is [still]
known for his fraudulent 1998 research paper in support of the now-discredited claim that there was a link between the administration of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, and the appearance of autism and bowel disease.
Dr. Andrew Wakefield, in the meantime, lost his reputation and career for simply following the truth in his research with the health of children not profit as his only motive.
Who are we to trust, someone who, in the face of personal and professional ruin, stands by their convictions or Big Pharma and their medical cabal who hide behind closed doors to protect their enormous financial gain from the manufacture and pushing of drugs?
ABC World News interview with Del Bigtree producer of the documentary “VAXXED – from cover up to catastrophe” (YouTube link opens in a new window) just hours before the Tribeca Film Festival pulled it. To his credit and all the more respect to the man, Robert de Niro regretted the knee-jerk reaction and later supported the essential message of the film and appeared several times on the Today show discussing these essential issues:Robert De Niro speak candidly about “VAXXED” vaccine documentary, his son, autism – NBC 13-04-2016 (YouTube link opens in a new window).
