Andrew Wakefield - Doctor No More

It's good to know that sometimes science and reason win, and the bad guys pay for their stupidity.
Today, the doctor who started the MMR vaccine controversy (never a real controversy) 12 years ago, and who probably caused more harm to children than anyone else (ok, maybe Jenny McCarthy is running right behind him), was "struck off" from the U.K. medical register, which means he's not a doctor anymore.

Good riddance!!!

Unfortunately, the legacy of his fake and unethical research and years of pushing his agenda" live on in forms of public confusion, preventable diseases that are coming back in various places around the world, and worst of all, children dying when they are not vaccinated. It's a shame!!!

Thanks to Orac for this great news!!!
