The Student BMJ Cartoons Wakefield

The Student BMJ is by far the most popular medical student publication in the world. It has just run a cartoon on the issue of the Wakefieldian MMR-Autism mishap. Take a look. To see the high res version of the cartoon, and find more reading links and stuff, click on the image to go to the sBMJ website.

  1. thank you for sharing this! one effect of this situation that the cartoon doesn’t even address is how this issue has divided the autism community… thank goodness for brian deer; maybe the public will begin to demand the return of responsible journalism 🙂

    • You are right. It has left a lot of people confused and angry. It saddens my heart to see how the person affected so many children, their parents, and families for mere fiscal gains…
