Doctor Who Suggested MMR-Autism Link To Face Charges

Don't usually post content from abroad but thougth this would be of interest. Stay tuned.
LONDON -- The doctor at the center of the MMR controversy is due to learn whether he could face sanctions.
Dr Andrew Wakefield will hear from experts at the General Medical Council (GMC), which has been investigating allegations of serious professional misconduct.
In the late 1990s, Dr Wakefield and two other doctors said they believed they had uncovered a link between the MMR jab, bowel disease and autism. The research, published in the highly respected medical journal The Lancet, caused a large drop in the number of children given the triple jab for measles, mumps and rubella.
Verdicts on the "facts" to the case will be delivered at the disciplinary hearing in central London.
