"Andrew Wakefield is a British former physician and medical researcher and is one of the originators of the modern anti-vaccine movement. He is best known for his fraudulent study alleging a link between the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism. Once the massive methodological and ethical flaws in this paper came to light, the Lancet rejected it about as hard as Jehovah rejected Lucifer. Like Lucifer, the paper has spawned a vast number of evil and stupid minions bent on destroying the world."
