So -- investigation condemning a doctor responsible for making many parents think twice about vaccinated and their children.
A British Medical Journal calling that doctor study linking vaccines childhood -- -- quote elaborate fraud.
Doctor Robert solos -- he's founder and executive director of bringing balance sheet and senators centers are issues that with me here.
In New York good morning to you doctor warns that there's a dot -- -- Andrew Wakefield.
He made a conclusion back in 1998 affecting lives in the US -- this is thirteen years ago right what was his study that was considered to be so fraudulent.
Well you know I think the background on this is that parents for years have noticed that.
At around seventeen or eighteen months.
Many children seemed to -- with the rockets -- meaning that many parents believe that there developing normally and then all of a sudden there's this dramatic regression so.
At this point there was a study that he was.
Doing to look at if there was a relationship between the MMR Mac vaccine and an -- is some reason -- -- mozzarella and especially the measles portion of that he questioned.
And he said that there was a relationship where.
There was basically like an infection where this vaccination.
It caused an inflammation in the child that led to the cause of autism.
So his claim.
Has been debunked because twelve of the kids he studied they were normal until they have the -- shot.
Five as it turns out had previously documented developmental problems.
Which would skew the study itself right is this civilized I need parents have been -- -- on this trying to figure out answers for their own kids for for the better part of fifteen years now.
Autism went from -- in 101000 early nineties to fewer than 100.
In listen to decade.
So this is the thing.
Because there is this regression that parents -- -- also because there is this actual epidemic anyone things that we can't denies that there really is an epidemic going from.
One in 101000 to less than one -- 100.
So when you look at that there must be some environmental factors driving this so that is what raised a lot of the questions and -- parents think.
What is the environment the fact that it's leading to this and everybody was looking for a smoking gun and this study actually gave them that's what was on what was weak fields motivation.
Do we know the other the question is you know beaten these two sides that he he states that he just doing it -- unless -- scientific standpoint in trying to help parents that.
Came to him with questions on the other end their people claiming that you know use paid.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars.
For the study so there's no questions on either end of it.
Bottom line parents out there are worried they're concerned what do you tell them what should they know what do you say to a parent says my kid was fine and healthy -- the age of three.
And he got a vaccination the next day sure enough right he took a turn for the worse.
Yeah well most of the studies at this point clearly show that there is in a relationship with vaccinations but.
There does need be to be more studies and it needs to be looked yet but.
What we really need to be focusing on as what is actually the problem in the brain that you can't answer question on causation.
Until you actually know what -- is in the brain.
It's important information appreciate you coming in today might -- -- doctor Robert low -- with us here in New York thanks thank you.
