This is an example of why I hate doctors almost more than politicians and the filthy fuckers that own them..
Doctors rarely know anything outside of the most common procedures.
Yet everyone kisses their asses like they are gods. They're gods alright.
Most of them:...greedy, pompous, stupid bastards.
High cost of medicine, yea right, it starts with those evil parasitical motherfuckers.
The only occupation besides politics where you are PAID for FAILURE.
An explanation of the autism vaccine controversy... in comic form!
One intentionally wrong outcome based on a small enough set of data, add in lawyers out to make a buck, throw in a bunch of newspapers for whom selling copies is the only thing worth doing, and get the results out to a population who fear science and want to worship nature; and you get the MMR scare. A few other things as well, but we'll leave it at MMR.
An excellent cartoon synopsis of how the vaccine autism scare started, and what's kept the ball rolling. It turns out that Andrew Wakefield never really had any decent evidence of a vaccine/autism connection in the first place, and he may have made a good chunk of change in the course of the whole mess--meanwhile, uncritical and sensationalist newspapers and magazines parroted his unsubstantiated claims shocking.
