What About Wakefield – Los Angeles Times, 6/18/2019

To the editor: What this article failed to mention is that former doctor Andrew Wakefield, whose infamous study linking the MMR vaccine to autism was retracted by the Lancet medical journal, is not permitted to practice medicine because British authorities revoked his license.

Also not mentioned was the fact that Wakefield filed a patent application for a measles vaccine that would have been in competition with the one he later deemed problematic. I leave it up to the reader to determine why the former doctor may have taken the actions he did.
