Piltdown Medicine

It's been a bad few years for (former) Doctor Andrew Wakefield. Once the shining star of the "vaccines cause autism" crowd, he's been discredited, disgraced and defrocked. And then today:
"As bad as the findings were that Wakefield had committed scientific fraud, it turns out that it was even worse than the original reports indicated. A few hours ago, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) published an analysis of the scientific fraud committed by Wakefield, fraud that journalist Brian Deer likens in an accompanying editorial to the Piltdown Man"

Needless to say, this has had no effect on America's great anti-vaccine nut......
