The UK Charity HealthWatch for Science and Integrity in Medicine has published a most telling article on the question of whether Donald Trump represents a significant public health risk. The article is co-authored by Lida Gibson (Senior Lecturer in Public Health), Professor Matt Henn (Research Professor of Politics) and I, (criminologist).

Regarding the Vaccine Autism Meme (VAM):

'Although we have established here that presidential dissemination of VAM exists, we don’t know whether it represents a probable public health risk. To answer that question requires a research project to measure whether or not Trump’s specific VAM publishing and broadcasting activities have impacted immunization decision making by parents in the USA and elsewhere. We recommend such a study be undertaken in the interests of public health.'
