Why Medical Authorities Went to Such Extremes to Silence Dr. Andrew Wakefield
[2010 April] Andrew Wakefield Interview by Dr Mercola
Coming down to the issue of giving it (Hepatitis B vaccine) on day one of life, there are several issues that surround that. The first is when we did this primate study giving that hepatitis B vaccine on day one. We looked for the safety studies of that policy. What had been done to establish the safety of giving it on day one? Not just giving it on day one but giving it on day one to every infant whether they were born at 24 weeks or 30 weeks or 36 weeks or 40 weeks, whatever their gestational…their birth weight was, whether they were 10 lbs or 3 lbs or 2 lbs, they were getting the same shot at day one as a matter of policy. Safety studies… We couldn't find them. And that was really shocking, really shocking. How could this be? If you're going to make a case for it, if you're going to do it, your'e going to make it a matter of policy for every kid in the country then you'e got to be absolutely certain that you got the safety set that is right because if not, you may produce insidious problems, minor degrees of damage which you don't pick up straight away but are catastrophic.
The word informed consent is an oxymoron. To be able to give informed consent, you have to have the information to give. If the safety information does not exist, you‟re not in a position to give that information. So the process of informed consent never gets out of the starting blocks.
For those of you who have swallowed this type of reporting hook line and sinker, here is a list of 28 studies from around the world that support Dr. Wakefield’s controversial findings:
