Dr Ben Goldacre

The MMR Scandal and Other Scientific Quackery

Ben Goldacre has spent much of his career as an author, broadcaster and academic unpicking the misuse of science and statistics by journalists, politicians, quacks and drug companies – no more so than after the 1998 MMR hoax, whose dangerous influence is still felt today.

Ben Goldacre is the author of Bad Science and Bad Pharma and a Senior Clinical Research Fellow at the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford University.
