Reminder that Andrew Wakefield initially lied about finding a connection between mainstream vaccines and autism because he was peddling his own line of alternative vaccines. It wasn't just a spurious claim: he lied because he wanted people's money and he didn't care if those people got hurt.
@noelle I think stuff like that should be considered the highest form of treason: Treason to all of humanity instead of just one nation.
@noelle i hate that man
the book NeuroTribes by Steve Silbermann goes into some (not much, thankfully) detail into the “tests” wakefield performed on his “subjects” and it was just the most horrifying shit
absolute scumbag ableist filth
Just Ellie (and perhaps some of her toys).
