Thank You for sharing this.
This is not good news at all. I really think that some vaccines do have to do with medical issues and this will set research back on helping make sure our kids are safe.

Wakefield has been unable to reproduce his results in the face of criticism, and other researchers have been unable to match them. Most of his co-authors withdrew their names from the study in 2004 after learning he had had been paid by a law firm that intended to sue vaccine manufacturers -- a serious conflict of interest he failed to disclose. After years on controversy, the Lancet, the prestigious journal that originally published the research, retracted Wakefield's paper last February.
There should probably be some kind of prosecution if they can really prove this. While I do believe that some vaccines can harm or worsen conditions for some children, I feel it is a drop in the bucket to the millions of children that are spared from these diseases.
