Discredited Doctor Andrew Wakefield

My name is Kelly Hills and I am an occasional blogger. Per the FTC’s Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising, I must disclose any and all compensation for endorsements or posts.

I am not being paid, receiving remuneration, or otherwise compensated for this post on Andrew Wakefield, nor have I ever been paid to specifically write about him – contrary to his assertions in today’s NYTimes Magazine article.

With that disclaimer out of the way, let me assert, again, my belief that Andrew Wakefield is a discredited doctor from the United Kingdom who is single-handedly responsible for the surge in preventable childhood illnesses that cause permanent disability and death, that he has fooled countless parents into believing it is their fault their child has autism, and that his continued insistence in his position being correct is, ethically-speaking, the worst sort of malfeasance.

I hope that makes it all clear.
