Lies and fraud in MMR and Autism links

Following a whistleblower’s activities in exposing the trashing and thus omission of hard evidence linking autism in African-American children to the MMR vaccine, exposure is now being demanded by Rep. Posey in the US Senate.

His entire statement on the CDC destroying evidence, is printed here:

I rise today on matters of scientific integrity and research. To begin with, I am absolutely, resolutely, pro-vaccine. Advancements in medical immunization have saved countless and greatly benefitted public health. That being said, it’s troubling to me that in a recent Senate hearing on childhood vaccinations, it was never mentioned that our government has paid out over $3 billion through a vaccine injury compensation program for children who have been injured by vaccinations.

Regardless of the subject matter, parents making decisions about their children’s health deserve to have the best information available to them. They should be able to count on federal agencies to tell them the truth. For these reasons, I bring the following matter to the House floor.

In August 2014, Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, worked with a whistleblower attorney to provide my office with documents related to a 2004 CDC study that examined the possibility of a relationship between [the] mumps, measles, rubella vaccine and autism. In a statement released in August, 2014, Dr. Thompson stated, ‘I regret that my co-authors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics.’

Mr. Speaker, I respectfully request the following excepts from the statement written by Dr. Thompson be entered into the record.

[Now quoting Dr. Thompson.]

‘My primary job duties while working in the immunization safety branch from 2000 to 2006, were to later co-lead three major vaccine safety studies. The MADDSP, MMR autism cases control study was being carried out in response to the Wakefield-Lancet study that suggested an association between the MMR vaccine and an autism-like health outcome. There were several major concerns among scientists and consumer advocates outside the CDC in the fall of 2000, regarding the execution of the Verstraeten Study. One of the important goals that was determined up front, in the spring of 2001, before any of these studies started, was to have all three protocols vetted outside the CDC prior to the start of the analyses so consumer advocates could not claim that we were presenting analyses that suited our own goals and biases. We hypothesized that if we found statistically significant effects at either 18 or 36 month thresholds, we would conclude that vaccinating children early with MMR vaccine could lead to autism-like characteristics or features. We all met and finalized the study protocol and analysis plan. The goal was to not deviate from the analysis plan to avoid the debacle that occurred with the Verstraeten thimerosal study published in Pediatrics in 2003.

‘At the Sept 5th meeting we discussed in detail how to code race for both the sample and the birth certificate sample. At the bottom of table 7, it also shows that for the non-birth certificate sample, the adjusted race effect statistical significance was huge.

‘All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September 2002, not to report any race effects from the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting, we decided to exclude reporting any race effects. The co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room, and reviewed and went through all the hardcopy documents that we had thought we should discard, and put them into a huge garbage can. However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DOJ requests, I kept hardcopies of all documents in my office, and I retain all associated computer files. I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper.’

Mr. Speaker, I believe it is our duty to insure that the documents that Dr. Thompson are not ignored. Therefore I will provide them to members of Congress and the House Committees upon request. Considering the nature of the whistleblower’s documents as well as the involvement of the CDC, a hearing and a thorough investigation is warranted.

So I ask, Mr. Speaker, I beg, I implore my colleagues on the appropriations committees to please, please take such action.

Hear this well: Vaccines cause autism

CNN Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen well and truly put her foot in her mouth last week.

Seeking to state the ‘Official view’ that vaccines are safe, and especially the MMR vaccine following the CDC whistleblower story that research evidence had been fraudulently withheld, she leant forward to camera on TV and said, “Autism is not a side effect of vaccines or to say it another way because some people don’t hear this well, vaccines do not cause autism.”

The backlash was immediate and huge. Welcome to the ‘Hear this well’ campaign.

Starting with Polly Tommey: This lady has two children, one perfectly normal but the other became seriously autistic following MMR vaccination at the age of 13 months. Seizures, high pitched screaming, head bashing and severe gut problems were just four of the symptoms; Polly had already formed the Autism Media Channel.

Polly cut ‘Vaccines do not cause autism’ from the CNN piece and then she explained on video the story of her autistic son with the words ‘Some people don’t hear that well’. See the first video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?

Others follow on from this link, because it started a landslide. Mothers, fathers, grandparents all made short videos about their offspring, and MMR vaccines and autism. And the videos all used variations of the theme ‘Hear this well’. In double quick time there were more than 400 posted on You Tube. Some featured stories, at least one involved the death of the child. Others featured the child clearly showing their condition symptoms.

Several even talk of family members catching measles from the vaccinated child. Destruction of lives is a constant theme and even death is mentioned in some.

It wasn’t only Big Pharma and the CDC that Cohen exposed. Much of the mainstream media (who often benefit from large drug company budgets in America) have not covered any of this news story about whistleblowers, autism and vaccines. Nor have the Big Pharma-sympathizing skeptics who originally produced such a robust attack on Dr Andrew Wakefield.

However accidental, Cohen has inflamed the situation and brought it to a wider audience on social media.
