Just last month, the British Medical Journal published "How the vaccine crisis was meant to make money," a report ripping apart the supposedly definitive 1998 study linking autism to vaccine use.
The Dominican Republic has deported thousands of illegal immigrants in recent weeks, sowing fear among Haitians living in the country and prompting accusations its government is using a cholera outbreak as a pretext for a crackdown.
