I know this off topic but I thought this was worth mentioning.


NBC Dateline Tackles the Autism - Vaccine Controversy & Dr. Andrew Wakefield

http://www.arizonaadvancedmedicine.com/newsletters/August2009Advisory.html

According to an NBC news press release,

"Lauer speaks with Dr. Andrew Wakefield, whose 1998 medical study was the first in the world to suggest a possible link between the MMR vaccine and autism...

Dr. Wakefield's theories have also raised serious questions from the media and the medical community ... Now, Dr. Wakefield reacts to his harshest critics on the controversy he's created over the past decade... "

This should be very interesting!!!

It's on Dateline tonight 7pt/6central CH 4 here on the west coast, it's on at 9pm.
I think that's what it was - I'm DVR'ing it.
It is very good exposure - especially now while new vaccines and more vaccines are getting heavy promotion!

I watched it. I have been waiting 10 years for this.

He was very composed and straight to the facts.

While the opposers were angry and uncomposed.

They mentioned the fact the opposing doc had

developed one of the vaccines that was withdrawn

within a year of release but did not mention

that. They only mentioned the fact he had

possible conflicts of interest. Apparently Matt

had not done his homework. As this should have

been brought up.

But it made the point of something is going on

and something needs done about it. One told Matt

that celebrities like the Carey's needed to

stick with what they do best. LOL

Up. I can only imagine what is coming for other researchers. It is a wonder Dr. mcD. could get anything published.

If someone has a link to this one hour interview, please post it. I am anxious to watch it.

I can't find it anywhere as of now. Thanks.

So where is the interview with wakefield. Is the whole thing online? The link on their site only has videos of a short clip about autism genetics research, and a statement from someone at the NIH saying they are concerned about vaccine safety and there needs to be more research.

Apparently,Matt Lauer and NBC left out some details.

I read the statement.

I did not know one of the interviews was from 2004.

The more I think about it the more things I see

they failed to mention. But I do believe if M had

all day Dr. W. could have filled him in. The best

thing that come from this is the knowledge that

people need to do the research and decide for

themselves not just based on what the good doctor

tells you but by what you have learned.
