#Leveson: Murdoch's #Vaccine - Blair DID Not Vaccinate His Own Son WHY Because He Knew The Risks!

Murdochs destruction of Dr. Wakefield - Whats the real story ...

There are many videos out there who describe parents of vaccine damaged children as "nutters". A classic is Dr Paul Offit who is the Head of Pediatrics at Children's Hospital, Philadelphia and holds a patent for the Rotavirus vaccine. He also owns the Merck chair at the Institute and has been rewarded for his tirade against vaccine victims by being offered a position in the IOM, USA. Paul delights in talking about Dr Andrew Wakefield, the "disgraced" reputed gastroenterologist of UK, MB, BS, FRCS, FRCPath, son of highly reputed physician parents, who had examined 12 autistic children who were either referred to him by doctors in the US or came to him directly. He, and another very reputed physician Dr J Walker Smith, and 10 others studied these children for two years, conducted all pathological tests and found a new type of gastrointestinal distress in these children which they termed illeal lymphoid hyperplasia. They also found the MMR vaccine strain measles virus in the guts of these children.

The team then prepared a preliminary case study and called for more research into this new phenomenon. This was presented to Lancet and was published in 1998. Incidentally both Dr Wakefield and J Walker Smith have considerable publications in their names and are highly respected in their fields of work. Now the particular MMR vaccine in the UK had a controversial history. Before it was introduced in the UK it was already pulled out of the schedules of many countries for its high reactogenicity. But the UK health department had gone out of its way to purchase the vaccine and had illegally favored a particular manufacturer.

Very soon reports of after effects started pouring in but the health department did not yield and justified its procurement. Parents of the victims then decided to sue the government for damages. Attorneys from the USA sought the help of Dr Wakefield. The UK health officials then threatened the Dean of the Institution where the research was taking place and tried their best to scuttle the case series. However the Dean reasoned that as his institute was then passing through a financial crisis, the novel research they were undertaking would help bring in funds.

He then promoted Dr Wakefield to be the Head of Research for his many research activities and his constant endeavors to solve the funds crunch in the Institute. After the case series was selected for publication the Dean called for a Press Conference where the results of the study was declared on the day before it appeared in the Lancet. This set up a furor and the international press which was already aware of the adverse events surrounding the vaccine picked up the story and grilled both the UK health authorities and also questioned Tony Blair, then Prime Minister, about his own sons MMR vaccine status. Blair refused to reply but the doctor responsible let it slip that Blair had not vaccinated his own son.
