beware of false studies

the temptation to jump on the bandwagon against andrew wakefield and his study about MMR and autism being false (pretty much proven already) and even (collective gasp) motivated by monetary gain is strong. but if that same critical eye is aimed at many pharmaceutical studies sponsored by the company who stands to profit, we find that it's easy to point fingers when the villain is our enemy but not so easy when they are feeding us lunch every day. ouch.
