How One Doctor’s Fraud Started The Anti-Vaccination Movement

Why do some parents refuse to vaccinate their kids? It all comes down to a fraudulent research study published in a British medical journal in 1998, by Dr. Andrew Wakefield. The study has been proven false many times over. And because of his fraud, Wakefield is barred from practicing as a physician in the UK. He has moved to the US but has not been licensed to practice here also.

Without vaccinations to blame, parents would have to admit they passed on genetic flaws to their children.
