Today’s trailer is a rather controversial one. Vaxxed: From Cover-Up To Catastrophe is a documentary about a U.S. governmental agency’s cover-up of data that proves there’s a link between the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism.
This week, Robert De Niro’s 2016 Tribeca Film Festival removed the documentary from its list of screenings. The decision was made after an outcry from many including the scientific community and pro-vaccine groups. There has been talk of the film’s director, Andrew Wakefield not being a reliable source of information since his medical licence in his native UK is revoked…
There may or may not be a link between the MMR vaccine and autism but the more important question at this point is, if there is indeed a link, did the U.S.A’s CDC (Centers For Disease Control & Prevention) actually suppress data that proves the link? Vaxxed: From Cover-Up To Catastrophe is a documentary that aims to present evidence that points to yes. I’m certainly open to viewing said evidence in the hope that steps can be taken towards safer vaccines in the future. This is as I understand is the objective of the film makers involved.
Happy Film Loving 🙂
