"My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed."
(Excerpt from August 27, 2014 statement by Dr. William Thompson. Read full statement here.)
According to the CDC, 1 in 68 children has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder; however, the CDC denies that there is any link between autism and vaccines. (See Posey/Boyle and Warren/Schuchat videos below.) A revelation like Dr. Thompson's should have been a top news story and resulted in an immediate investigation. Unfortunately, the story was not reported in mainstream media and no investigation took place. To the contrary, the CDC continues to state that vaccines are safe and effective and bills have been introduced throughout the U.S. to mandate an ever increasing vaccine schedule and eliminate personal belief and religious exemptions.
Take Action . . . Ask your Congressman/woman to support Congressman Posey and a thorough investigation of the CDC.
