British VAM Meme Infects Robert De Niro and Donald Trump: Evidence of an Epidemic?

Mar. 25, 2017 5:48 am

Despite research, there is currently not a shred of scientific evidence for any causal relationship between infant vaccinations and autism. Any notion that such a thing might exist originated in an article in the Lancet in 1998. That article, written by Andrew Wakefield and several colleagues, was later retracted for science fraud. Here..

Robert De Niro who has a son with autism once went on TV to lobby for more research into the possible causal effects of vaccinations on autism. Clearly, the Wakefield article set an insidious meme lose in the world: the 'Vaccine Autism Meme' (VAM). De Niro caught it. His mind was contaminated with it. Perhaps it still is. You can go straight to the TV interview HERE.

Today, the brain of the President of the United States of America is proven to be infected with VAM. The hard evidence is provided by way of his own Tweets. The evidence has been safely archived and cited for posterity at my blog site: "The Veracity Institute" HERE.

Back in the UK, where this whole thing started, I have been commissioned by the Editor of the highly respected and influential HealthWatch Magazine to write a brief article on the subject of what we know and don't know about the impact of politicians personally broadcasting information on health issues - including vaccination coverage in the USA and elsewhere in the world. The article is to be co-authored with Professor Matt Henn - an expert on politics, and Linda Gibson, an expert on public health. We propose in our forthcoming article that a research project should be commissioned to look in greater depth at this one particular issue.

HealthWatch first came to hear of my research into science myths via earlier work published here on Best Thinking. If you use Google as your browser, an article they commissioned me to write on the Spinach myth can be read HERE

When our VAM article is published I will write a blog - with a link to it - here on BestThinking.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
