    Day Ten of the Cedillo Hearing (Dr. Chadwick on the phone, testifying)
    From page 2286

    [quote] Q. So you personally tested while you were in Dr. Wakefield’s lab gut biopsy material, CSF and PBMCs?

    A. Yes, that’s right.

    Q. And all the results were either negative, or if they were positive it always turned out that they were false positives?

    A. Yes, that’s correct.

    Q. Did you inform Dr. Wakefield of the negative results?

    A. Yes. Yes.

    This guy’s done. Anyone who believes him is simply an idiot or is interested in experimenting on their child for fun.

    I hope he enjoys the money before the sheep turn on him and get lawyers involved to reclaim their cash.

    ugh, were people actually stroking Wakefield in that video?

    If I were closer to London, I’d be really tempted to stand outside the trial with a ‘people who carry out unethical experiments on children deserve to be punished’ placard – mess up some of Wakefield’s photo opportunities, at least.

    The Autism Society of America had this blight on humanity as the keynote speaker for their annual conference the weekend before his trial started.

    They actually gave Wakefield a podium to keep his scam alive by insisting that MMR causes autism. Those conference attendees heard an infommercial to come down to Austin to be needlessley scoped. It is just a matter of time before Wakefield’s people perforate the colon of one of those poor children. The child will die a horrible death from sepsis.

    None of this is surprising when one considers that the ASA leadership includes a vaccine injury lawyer as their membership director. Talk about a conflict of interest. Their actions are indefensible, complicit, wreckless and damnable.

    Wakefield already did perforate a child’s intestine, in the UK. I guess they found it in time and fixed it. They also landed a kid in the emergency room for problems related to a lumbar puncture.

    Where are the parents of these kids? Maybe they ought to be picketing outside the GMC, too.

    Did Wakefield actually show up for his ASA keynote?
    I heard that they just played his video, and that he was on his way to London.
    The keynote was Saturday 7/14, and the GMC proceedings started Monday 7/16.

    The ASA played a video presentation Wakefield made where he insisted that MMR causes autism and he has new data to prove. It is disgraceful that an autism charity would allow this criminal to perpetuate such a damaging lie when the extent of his deception has been made plainly evident. Have they no deceny?

    Once Wakefield is given the heave ho by the authorities, I hope the House of Commons starts a campaign to resurrect confidence in the MMR vaccine and make absolutely sure that everyone who will listen knows (as we all know here already) that the man is a quack and really has no idea about ASD’s.

    Ms Clark droned

    “Wakefield already did perforate a child’s intestine, in the UK. I guess they found it in time and fixed it.” and
    ” They also landed a kid in the emergency room for problems related to a lumbar puncture.”

    please elaborate

    “Where are the parents of these kids? Maybe they ought to be picketing outside the GMC, too.”

    Not one parent has complained about W, M and W-S – even though Dear Brian has been trawling the land to find just one!

    Perhaps those parents are too embarrassed.

    Who, or what, are the “hampstead three?” I am merely curious.

    I wonder if “support the Hampstead three” is the mother in the family with a history of learning difficulties who took her children to the Royal Free after falling out with scores of doctors who tried to help them, and whose GP [whose own child had autism] said this week at the GMC hearing: “I was getting increasingly concerned about the amount of intervention she was requesting for her child… I didn’t feel this was an organic problem that warranted investigation… I felt her expectations were unrealistic… she was looking for solutions, rather than learning to live with it… I felt her anxieties and her concerns were detrimental to the interests of her children.”

    He also said, among other things: “I felt there was a lot of confusion because of [the child’s] mother’s inconsistent history-giving… She was a very confusing person, and the story would vary between consultations…”

    Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

    “In some cases, children were injured as a result of the procedures performed. The mother of one of the Lancet 12 – a 7-year-old boy – said that her son was rushed by emergency ambulance from his home to the Royal Berkshire hospital after enduring lumbar puncture under general anaesthetic at the Royal Free. Later, during an extension of the research into a larger number of children, a second child was obliged to undergo emergency surgery after his bowel was punctured during colonoscopy. ”


    So far Brian Deer hasn’t been wrong about one claim he’s made on his site about Wakers, so I’m going to go with what’s on Deer’s site.
