Remember Dr. Andrew Wakefield? You know, the guy that "linked" vaccines to autism? Well, his study on how vaccines are linked to autism was found to be fraudulent and has since been retracted...3 years ago.
3 years ago? Why bring it up now, you ask? Because good ol' Jenny McCarthy is in the news again because of vaccinations and autism and with that comes pro and anti-vaccination debates.
