Your chance to hear about MMR and autism
On Sunday, June 27th, Andrew Wakefield, the doctor at the center of the MMR-autism controversy will participate in a live interview with author Lynne McTaggart. It will be a live telephone call that you can also access via the web.
NOTE: 50% of the proceeds are being donated to support Wakefield’s continued research into the MMR vaccine and autism.
Andrew Wakefield was a leading gastroenterologist in London who made headlines in 1998 when he published a paper that suggested a possible link between the MMR vaccine and autism.
After the Wakefield paper was published, vaccine rates started to fall, and the backlash began. Andrew Wakefield became a media target culminating in a hearing before the UK’s General Medical Council. He has now been barred from practicing as a doctor.
But what really happened? What did Wakefield discover? What else has he discovered since?
- Professor Paul Shattuck, formerly of the University of Sunderland, and one of the world’s leading authorities on autism, will be joining on the call.
To hear the man at the centre of the storm – and to put your question to him – reserve your place by following this link. The cost for the call is $71.00 and 50% of the proceeds are being donated to support Wakefield’s continued research into the MMR vaccine and autism.
This is a live call, which you can access either by telephone or reduce additional telephone call charges to zero by listening in via the web.
