All orthodoxies hold beliefs that followers challenge at peril of condemnation,or even expulsion. One powerful orthodoxy is the medical establishment. Three of its beliefs are that vaccination (i) works, (ii) rarely hurts and (iii) is always appropriate.

A grateful public generally went along with these beliefs until:

  • a very brave (some say foolhardy) medical team led by a doctor called Andrew Wakefield reported that they had detected a possible link between the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and regressive autism (a form of autism where apparently healthy babies regress into autism). They called for more, larger studies to investigate what they had found and to determine what was actually going on
  • the UK medical establishment in the guise of the British Medical Association responded disproportionately in what many began to see as a 'witch hunt'
