Hollywood couple Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy have written a lengthy statement accusing vaccine manufacturers of spinning a "remarkable media campaign" to repress a breakthrough study in the debate over the possible role of vaccines in the autism epidemic.

McCarthy is the mother of an autistic child and author/activist for that cause, and the couple says that a crucial vaccine study using monkeys by Dr. Andrew Wakefield, a respected and well-published gastroenterologist, contains "stark and devastating" data that "will lend substantial credibility to the theory that over-vaccination of young children is leading to neurological damage, including autism." They contend that "the fallout from the study for vaccine makers and public health officials could be severe."

Titled "Andrew Wakefield, Scientific Censorship, and Fourteen Monkeys," you can read the entire statement HERE.
