MMR vaccines called one of the ‘greatest scandals in medical history’ by former Chief Scientific Officer of the UK’s Department of Health
The UK’s Daily Mail Online reports that Dr. Peter Fletcher, who was his country’s chief scientific officer in the late 1970s, said if it is ultimately proven that the MMR vaccine is linked to autism, “the refusal by governments to evaluate the risks properly will make this one of the greatest scandals in medical history.”
He also said that, after he agreed to become an expert witness in court cases – mostly lawsuits – involving drug safety on behalf of parents with vaccine-injured children, he receive a wealth of information contained in thousands of documents relating to cases he believed the public had a right to see.
Data are steadily accumulating
Fletcher, the Daily Mail Online noted, has borne witness to a “steady accumulation of evidence” from scientists around the world that the MMR vaccine is indeed linked to brain injury in some children.
