    Science Betrayed - Andrew Wakefield and the MMR scare

    Broadcast on Thu 24 Mar 2011 at 21:00

    Here is a BBC Radio 4 program about Andrew Wakefield and 'the MMR scare'.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00zm328

    This probably isn't available to non-UK citizens to listen to, as it's on the BBC website.

    I haven't listened to this yet, but it's coming from the angle that Andrew Wakefield carried out "serious professional misconduct", and that his "deception" had dangerous consequences.

    Here's the text that accompanies the audio file:

    I just listened to a recording of this earlier this evening. What struck me as interesting from an ME/CFS point of view was that (as I understood it, usual brainfog caveats) the investigation by the General Medical Council that led to Dr Wakefield being struck off appears to have been essentially initiated by an investigative journalist "following the money". I wish someone would do the same for us in relation to the link between insurance companies and the psychologising of our condition.

    Thanks Bob - good listening - I bet the establishment here hoped the whole problem would disappear - well it won't.
