About this item

As Andrew Wakefield states in his prologue, If autism does not affect your family now, it will. If something does not changeand change soonthis is almost a mathematical certainty. This book affects you also. It is not a parochial look at a trivial medical spat in the United Kingdom, but dispatches from the battlefront in a major confrontationa struggle against compromise in medicine, corruption of science, and a real and present threat to children in the interests of policy and profit. It is a story of how the system deals with dissent among its doctors and scientists.

In the pursuit of possible links between childhood vaccines, intestinalinflammation, and neurologic injury in children, Wakefield lost his job in Londons Royal Free Hospital, his country of birth, his career, and his medical license. A recent General Medical Councilruling stated that he was dishonest, irresponsible and showed callous disregard for the distress and pain of children. Maligned by the medical establishment and mainstream media, Wakefield endeavors to set the record straight in Callous Disregard. While explainingwhat really happened, he calls out the organizations and individuals that are acting not for the sake of children affected by autism, but in their own self-interests.
