Dawn Pedersen of the great blog Dawn’s Brain reviews the “character” in the new anti-science anti-vaccine film “Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe” from the disgrace discredited Andrew Wakefield.
By Dawn Pedersen In Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe, director Andrew Wakefield and producer Del Bigtree assert that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is not trustworthy as a source of vaccine safety information. They claim that the CDC hid evidence in one of its major studies that vaccines cause autism-and that African American boys are at the greatest risk.
Dr. Paul Offit gives us his review here:
On March 26, Robert De Niro reversed his decision to premiere the movie Vaxxed at the Tribeca Film Festival. Andrew Wakefield, the film’s director, claimed that Vaxxed had been the victim of censorship. Almost every major news outlet carried the story. What happened?
…and Jordan Hoffman reviews for The Guardian here:
Despite continued notices by leading medical journals that there is no connection between vaccinations and autism, some persist in claiming that one exists. Adding fuel to this fire is the controversial documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, making its theatrical debut in New York this week.
