schmidt349 writes: According to the British Medical Journal, the controversial and later retracted study on the relationship between vaccines and autism was an academic forgery by its author, Dr. Andrew Wakefield. Evidently Dr. Wakefield went much further than simply misrepresenting or misreporting his data; he deliberately falsified the records of all 12 patients in his study. His motives are unclear, but the $674,000 BMJ alleges Wakefield received from attorneys in the UK MMR vaccine case may have played a role.
