Dr Mercola has brought to his readers’ attention the fact that Do You Hear the Silence?  – a  dramatised version of how Dr Wakefield and his colleagues first uncovered a link between the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine and autism – is now on Youtube.

Dr Mercola’s introduction to the film may be read at this link:  http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/03/26/dr-wakefield-vaccine-film.aspx?e_cid=20130326_DNL_art_2&utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art2&utm_campaign=20130326

Please note that the film is not a documentary but a dramatisation and for that reason some characters have been conflated and/or fictionalised.

The film may be viewed at this link:

Dr Wakefield’s own account of the controversy caused by his research may be read in his book Callous Disregard (see http://www.callous-disregard.com/).  A review of this book may be read at http://www.noforcedvaccines.org/vaccination-information/reviews-of-books-about-vaccination/
