Anderson Cooper Interviews Dr. Andrew Wakefield's About his Fraudulent Autism Study

Posted April 22nd, 2014 @ 4:49pm

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 Well, his study on how vaccines are linked to autism was found to be fraudulent and has since been retracted...3 years ago. 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. With the anti-vaccination argument, Dr. Wakefield's "study" is often cited. I guess they didn't get the memo that Wakefield's study was littered with fiction.

So, thanks to Philips Phile listener Michael, here is the original article published by CNN exploring the fraudulent study published by Andrew Wakefield:
