For nearly a decade, the British General Medical Council
(GMC), the equivalent of the Therapeutic Goods
Administration (TGA) on steroids, has been taking Dr Andrew
Wakefield to task for daring to suggest that autism could be
caused by the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine.
This week proved that the inquisition continues. The Times
(UK) published a report written by commissioned journalist,
Brian Deer, claiming that “confidential medical documents
and interviews with witnesses” have established that Andrew
Wakefield manipulated patients’ data.1 Deer claims that Dr
Wakefield’s “misleading and inaccurate” research about the MMR
has led to reduced vaccination rates and a resurgence of measles.
And while the bickering about the MMR continues, the number
of children who have been lost to autism continues to soar.
Before the 1990s, UK researchers estimated four to five cases of
autism per 10,000 people in their country. By 2006, the number
with autism had escalated to 39 per 10,000 and the number with
autism spectrum disorder (ASD) stood at 77 per 10,000, making
the total prevalence of all types of ASD 116 per 10,000, or one
in every 86 children.2 Barely one year later (2007), researchers at
the Cambridge University’s Autism Research Centre in London
released a report estimating that one in every 58 children in the
UK (not just boys) suffers from “some form of autism disorder”.3
