Now, it’s time to introduce the information about one of those epidemiological studies (population studies), which influenced the IOM’s Immunization Safety Review completed in 2004. (See the previous article - which explains the details of that report and the IOM's conclusion to not look for susceptible autistic groups, and not support targeted autism research).
In 2014, a decade after that final Immunization Safety Review was completed, Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist employed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), came forward stating that safety research published ten years prior, in 2004, regarding the timing of administration of MMR, was fraudulently manipulated by the CDC. He states that he and his four fellow co-authors altered the study's design, to show safety for MMR vaccine when the original data showed a statistically significant association with autism - such evidence provides a casual association supporting what parents of autistic children have been saying. Thompson has since become known as the CDC Whistleblower.
In Thompson’s public statement he alleges that a statistically significant increased rate of autism was discovered in the male African American population of children, who were given the MMR vaccine prior to the age of 36 months. A documentary called Vaxxed From Cover-Up to Catastrophe was made to explain the information, the cover-up, and the consequences of such actions. In most articles about this documentary, you hear that the increased risk of autism was seen only in the male African American population. However, in the documentary, Dr. Thompson and a doctor who Thompson reached out to, Dr. Hooker, discuss the data for a second affected autistic group of children. I encourage you to watch the documentary to learn the details about the scientific fraud that was alleged to have occurred between 2000 and 2004, and why this information is critically imporantant and not common knowledge.
Many cities and companies across the world are advocating for censorship of this documentary, and in some places the backlash has been “successful,” resulting in the banning of this film. People need to be aware of Dr. William Thompson and his confession.
Until the US Government subpoenas Thompson (in the same way that Dr. David Graham, the FDA whistleblower, was subpoenaed) the truth about the situation cannot be adequately analyzed. It needs to be stated that Dr. Thompson wants to be subpoenaed. As a Federal employee, he cannot discuss what occurs behind closed doors at work within the CDC. If he speaks candidly with the public about the allegations he's made, he could face jail time. The ONLY way he can legally speak out about what he observed while working on this study that was published in 2004, is if the US Government subpoenas him. He wants this to happen.
If this fraud is proven true, the cover-up has subsequently harmed over a million children over the past 14 years (and counting because Thompson still hasn’t been subpoenaed, and that just recognizes American children). And, in Thompson’s words, the fraud has pushed back vaccine safety research by at least a decade.
The Vaxxed film was released in July 2016, three years ago. In the discussion throughout the film, several CDC employees are specifically named and accused of committing scientific fraud. If the allegations made about the actions of those employees are untrue, those employees could file a defamation of character or libel lawsuit, suing the Vaxxed producers and Dr. William Thompson for damages. To date, not one of the employees has filed lawsuit. The lack of a such a lawsuit gives significant credibility to the Vaxxed documentary.
