Sockatume writes “In his second report, Brian Deer exposes how MMR-autism prophet Andrew Wakefield aimed to profit from the vaccine scare. Two years before the research that “discovered” the MMR-autism link, Wakefield began courting interest in a hundred-million-dollar diagnostics firm. The doctor hoped to seed the company with government legal aid money and profit by charging “premium prices” for new diagnostic tests to be used in vaccine injury lawsuits. By the time Wakefield published, the proposals had expanded into producing new “safe” vaccines, two businesses to gather legal aid funding, and interest from partners including Wakefield’s own hospital. The scheme ultimately disintegrated with the arrival of new leadership at Wakefield’s hospital and ongoing scrutiny into his research.”
