Wakefield and mmr:

Quite a few of you have written letters of support for Dr Wakefield, who has been pilloried in the London Sunday Times over his research into a link between the MMR vaccine and autism

Quite a few of you have written letters of support for Dr Wakefield, who has been pilloried in the London Sunday Times over his research into a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

One woman points out that the vaccine has also been associated with other health worries, and recalls attending a conference where one researcher revealed that incidents of cot death had dropped by 90 per cent in Japan since the authorities there stopped vaccinating children under the age of five.

Another woman points out that measles is more likely to be a deadly disease among children who are malnourished. Governments should be doing something to increase the nutritional status of children instead of dishing out 'magic shots'.

Another says that vaccines are not effective, and are merely a moneyspinner for the pharmaceutical industry. Finally, one woman says that Dr Wakefield is brave and important, while his detractors are vile.
