From Wakefield himself, if you're not an epidemiologist, you can't understand the flaws in a study

"Dr. Offitt, who is not an epidemiologist, was clearly at a loss to understand the study’s fatal flaws." From Thoughtful House press release following the Dateline airing.

Gosh, neither is Wakefield. There you have it, from the man himself : if you aren't an epidemiologist, you can't recognize flaws in an epidemiological study. So, all of you reading a Spanish teacher's analysis are really screwed. Because if you can't understand the flaws, then you can't know what was right, either.

:-) Just saying. That's all.


Couldn't even spell Offit's name right, either. Gotta a word for the whole thing: sour grapes.
