Not that it will matter to the kool-aid intoxicated vaccine crowd, but it appears some scientists at the CDC have a conscience and are not willing to go to their graves without telling the truth that autism is linked to vaccines!
Here it is. All the people who said we were making it up, inventing charges of fraud at the CDC…well, here it is. CDC Whistleblower William Thompson’s own statement, released from his lawyer’s office today.
I’ll have more to say about Thompson’s confession. But for now, read his words, particularly the opening. The 2004 CDC study on the MMR vaccine and autism was cooked. It was fraud.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE-AUGUST 27,2014
STATEMENT OF WILLIAM W. THOMPSON, Ph.D., REGARDING THE 2004 ARTICLE EXAMINING THE POSSIBILITY OF A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MMR VACCINE AND AUTISM
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.
I want to be absolutely clear that I believe vaccines have saved and continue to save countless lives. I would never suggest that any parent avoid vaccinating children of any race. Vaccines prevent serious diseases, and the risks associated with their administration are vastly outweighed by their individual and societal benefits.
My concern has been the decision to omit relevant findings in a particular study for a particular sub group for a particular vaccine. There have always been recognized risks for vaccination and I believe it is the responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks associated with receipt of those vaccines.
I have had many discussions with Dr. Brian Hooker over the last 10 months regarding studies the CDC has carried out regarding vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders. I share his belief that CDC decision-making and analyses should be transparent. I was not, however, aware that he was recording any of our conversations, nor was I given any choice regarding whether my name would be made public or my voice would be put on the Internet.
I am grateful for the many supportive e-mails that I have received over the last several days.
I will not be answering further questions at this time. I am providing information to Congressman William Posey, and of course will continue to cooperate with Congress. I have also offered to assist with reanalysis of the study data or development of further studies. For the time being, however, I am focused on my job and my family.
Reasonable scientists can and do differ in their interpretation of information. I will do everything I can to assist any unbiased and objective scientists inside or outside the CDC to analyze data collected by the CDC or other public organizations for the purpose of understanding whether vaccines are associated with an increased risk of autism. There are still more questions than answers, and I appreciate that so many families are looking for answers from the scientific community.
My colleagues and supervisors at the CDC have been entirely professional since this matter became public. In fact, I received a performance-based award after this story came out. I have experienced no pressure or retaliation and certainly was not escorted from the building, as some have stated.
I feel vindicated somewhat as I have been anti-vaccine since 1992. I have spoken out against them because of the obvious links to autism, neurological diseases, auto-immune diseases and such. The latest one that appears hell bent on killing our daughters is the HPV Gardisil vaccine, and if you would give your child a vaccine that has vastly increased chances of hurting or killing her compared to the actual disease, then you are certifiably nuts and a sheeple. Autism used to be 1 in 10,000, then 1 in 5000, then 1 in 2500, and now it’s 1 in 50! Autism steals children’s happiness and futures. What would your family look like without the added stress of an autistic child? I wonder how many families have been torn apart because of it. I don’t excuse this scientist who is still trying to cover his ass by saying vaccines save lives. They don’t save lives. They simply appear to because the CDC tells you they do.
Good nutrition and hygiene save lives! That’s the real truth, and if you don’t understand that, then there is no more words to help you understand why some countries children have a much higher death toll due to disease than others.
