And there are a bevy of experts that say MMR vaccine causes autism too - one in particular who eventually it turned out had a commercial vested interest stopping MMR. His papers were withdrawn as fraudulent.
Then there are supposedly reputable scientists with papers in 'reputable journals' who say that evolution did not occur.
With something so serious you need to cite the journals and the papers - not newspaper articles and TV appearances boosting their egos and causing untold damage where they are simply wrong. Of course mistakes are made and improvements are required in the peer review process - especially in reporting negative or no-effect trials undertaken by drug companies.
Some loners have done wonderful work and succeeded in changing mainstream on the basis of good science but there are many scaremongers who have done untold damage - the false link betwee autism and MMR is particular has put many parents off giving their kids any of the three immunisations which has definitely resulted in the deaths of children. But setting up a website called www.adhdfraud.org smacks of the non-scientific emotional ranter I'm afraid. Let's have the citations in Science or Nature or any other of the really top journals with a high citation rate. Cutting and pasting ain't enough.
