A recent Ipsos MORI poll has shown that doctors are the most trusted profession with 88% of adults surveyed in the UK saying that they trust doctors to tell the truth in stark contrast to politicians who are trusted by only 14% of those surveyed.

This may go some way to explaining the damage that was done when (former doctor) Andrew Wakefield decided to lie for profit by claiming in The Lancet that he had discovered a link between Vaccines and Autism.

 

 

 

16 years later, despite countless scientific studies and endless evidence to the contrary, many people still choose to believe the ex-doctor.

Wakefield was struck off the medical register and is no longer allowed to practice medicine. He may have enough public trust left for a career in politics...

 

Educate yourself. Vaccinate.
