A top researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a key role in helping uncover data manipulation by the CDC. This fraud obscured a higher incidence of autism in African-American boys. The whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, came forward after a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for original data on an autism study was filed and these highly sensitive documents were received with the assistance of U.S. Representative Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The CDC documents and discussions with the whistleblower reveal widespread manipulation of scientific data and top-down pressure on CDC scientists to suppress a causal link between the MMR vaccine and later autism diagnosis, particularly in a subset of African-American males who received their immunization “on-time” in accordance with the recommended CDC schedule.

The received documents from the CDC show that in 2003 a 340% increase in autism in African American boys related to the MMR vaccine was discovered and then hidden due to pressure from senior officials. The CDC researchers then recalculated their results by removing a population to get the results that were desired.

William Thompson has worked for the government agency for over a decade and confirmed that “the CDC knew about the relationship between the age of first MMR vaccine and autism incidence in African-American boys as early as 2003, but chose to cover it up.” He remarked “we’ve missed ten years of research because the CDC is so paralyzed right now by anything related to autism. They’re not doing what they should be doing because they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated.” He alleges criminal wrongdoing by his supervisors, and he expressed deep regret about his role in helping the CDC hide data.

Thompson’s revelations call into question the nine other studies cited by the CDC as evidence denying a link between vaccines and autism. They also have spurred a change.org petition to have the fraudulent study retracted from the Journal of Pediatrics, which published it in 2004.

A recently released memo from 2004 of Dr. Thompson expressing concerns to Dr. Gerberding, the head of the CDC at the time, about this problematic study has citizens upset. Does this mean Dr. Gerberding could have committed perjury during a congressional hearing? More investigation will be needed to know. A copy of the letter obtained under FOIA can be found here:

Regardless many citizens view this as a deliberate malfeasance at the taxpayers’ expense have begun a social media blitz to inform others of this story as it unfolds. Using the Twitter hashtags #CDCwhistleblower and #CDCfraud. Parents are hoping to have the agency held accountable for its role in any cover-up and are demanding an investigation on whether Dr. Coleen Boyle also perjured herself in testimony before Congress when addressing concerns of a potential vaccine-autism link.

The US Department of Health Resources and Services Administration has already recognized autism as a secondary cause of vaccine injury as documented in the Update to the Vaccine Injury Table following the 2011 IOM report. They did reject Autism as a direct adverse effect of the MMR specifically, but in view of these revelations that may be revisited:

UPDATE: CDC responds to claims stating that they recognize this study showed an increased risk of autism from the MMR:

“findings revealed that vaccination between 24 and 36 months was slightly more common among children with autism, and that association was strongest among children 3-5 years of age.”

They dismissed this with an assumption that parents with children that have autism rushed to get vaccinated for school.

“most likely a result of immunization requirements for preschool special education program attendance in children with autism.”

This raises questions as there are immunization requirements for all children attending public school and they already excluded children that had a vaccine exemption, so this should not have differed from the controls.

The CDC also states that “Additional studies and a more recent rigorous review by the Institute of Medicine have found that MMR vaccine does not increase the risk of autism”. The Studies that the CDC uses to confirm no link between the MMR and autism are 4 that they list on their website.  A quick look at these 4 studies raises several questions:

(http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/Vaccines/MMR/MMR.html )

  • One is the study talked about in this article showing a significant connection
  • A second was done by the infamous Dr. Thorsen who is awaiting extradition to the US on Fraud and is listed on the CDC’s most wanted list putting any of his work into question and this is outside of other potential problems with the study that have been brought up.
  • A third is an exploratory study of very small sample sizes, 28 children total, making this unreliable. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2526159/
  • The last one also used a small control sample size of only 31 children and relied on parent interviews to provide medical and behavioral information. Beyond that they did find that oer half (50%) of children with autism did regress shortly after the MMR vaccine (<5 months) even though they then concluded there was no connection. http://www.bu.edu/autism/files/2010/03/2006-Richler-et-al-MMR-Vaccine1.pdf

This begs the question as to why there are only these four studies used to support the claims that the MRR is safe and yet a quick search of PubMed finds A 2012 peer reviewed research paper studying over 500,000 children that found significant increase adverse effects after certain MMR vaccinations including a 22 Times increased risk of meningitis, 500% increase risk of febrile seizure, and other major side effects including a blood clotting disorder:

CDC whistleblower’s secret letter to Gerberding released as mainstream media desperately censors explosive story

CDC whistleblower’s secret letter to Gerberding released as mainstream media desperately censors explosive story

by Mike Adams
Natural News
August 25, 2014

The CDC whistleblower who has come forward with proof that the CDC knowingly covered up scientific evidence linking the MMR vaccine to autism has now been revealed as William W. Thompson, PhD. To share this story, use tags #vaccinegate and #EndVaccineViolence

Natural News has acquired a letter from William Thompson to former CDC head Dr. Julie Gerberding, dated February 2nd, 2004. The date of this letter is important because a pivotal Institute of Medicine (IoM) meeting on vaccine safety took place just one week later on February 9th. (See the full letter below.)

In this letter, William Thompson says he will be “presenting the summary of our results from the Metropolitan Atlanta Autism Case-Control Study,” and he laments that the data will show MMR vaccines cause an increased risk of autism in youth African-American babies. He explains “I will have to present several problematic results relating to statistical associations between the receipt of MMR vaccine and autism.”

He then goes on to implore Dr. Gerberding to respond to questions that had been raised by “Representative David Weldon” regarding the integrity of CDC scientists working in the immunization program. He also explains that the CDC has been covering up the truth about the safety problems the agency’s own scientists had documented with vaccines, saying:

I’ve repeatedly told individuals in the [National Immunization Program Office of Directors] over the last several years that they’re doing a very poor job representing immunization safety issues and that we’re losing the public relations war.

In response to this letter, the CDC took deliberate action to retroactively alter the outcome of the autism study by arbitrarily eliminating most subjects from the study, thereby shrinking the sample size to a small data set which would not achieve statistical significance. This is a clear and irrefutable case of scientific fraud. This fraud allowed CDC scientists such as Colleen Boyle to testify before Congress that there was “no credible link” between MMR vaccines and autism.

CNN caught blatantly censoring CDC whistleblower story

The mainstream media is pulling out all the stops to try to memory hole this breaking news story. When a citizen journalist posted the facts of the story to a CNN iReport page, CNN quickly removed it to prevent the public from learning the truth about this extraordinary moment in medical history.

The story has now been reposted at another CNN iReport page and so far has not been removed.
All other mainstream media news sources, including the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, etc., have been ordered to deliberately censor this story, just as Natural News reported last week. There is a desperate attempt under way right now to silence the CDC whistleblower and sweep this entire story under the rug before it explodes beyond the control of the corporate-run media.

What the truth-telling media has to say about the massive media cover-up

Here’s some of the independent reporting on what’s taking place right now:

From TruthBarrier.com:

CNN is now overtly complicit in the mainstream media blackout of the developing story of CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, who stepped forward and revealed that he had partaken in cooking data attempting to minimize the truth about the toxicity of the MMR vaccine in infants and the increased risk of developing autism.

Yesterday, on CNN’s “iReport” page, the story was posted. As of late last night, the article had 45,232 views, 178 comments,( mostly people literally begging CNN and other media to cover it,) and a staggering 17 thousand shares. This clearly is what we call “news worthy.”

However, CNN has now deleted the story, claiming it was “flagged” for being “in violation” of iReport’s policy. In violation of what? CNN’s appeasement policies toward the vaccine industry?

From Jon Rappoport’s blog:

CNN: the most trusted name in twisted information.

CNN headquarters are right down the street in Atlanta from the CDC, where the MMR vaccine data were cooked, stepped on, and buried.

I guess it’s just too much trouble for a reporter or editor to hop in a cab and go over there and ask a few tough questions.

Well, there are really no questions to ask, are there? CNN and the CDC are the “already asked and answered” dancing twins, who can read each other’s minds.

Vaccines? Never met one they didn’t love. Adverse effects? Damage? Never heard of such a thing.

From Age of Autism:

The CDC’s William Thompson, whistleblower to Brian Hooker on the MMR study and lead author on another on mercury in vaccines, has probably ruined more than a few of his colleagues’ August vacations at Hilton Head.

More broadly, these “leaks” in the bulwark of conventional wisdom have been coming for a long time, and not just from people on the inside with information to share.

I’m talking about leaks like all the parents of children on the other side of the elevated-risk stats — MMR shots at 12 months, illness, regression, autism.

Leaks like parents who saw it with other vaccines, at other times — parents who were willing to share what happened to try to keep it from happening again.

Leaks like the original Verstraeten study at the CDC that found a high risk of autism for infants who got the most ethyl mercury by the first month of life, as opposed to the least.

Leaks like the CDC coverup of the soaring autism rate in Brick Township, N.J.

Leaks like all the evidence from low-and-no-vaccine populations with low-to-no autism. Leaks like the unwillingness of the public health authorities to even study the issue.

Leaks like the Hannah Poling case, which the government conceded was triggered by autism, but buried by obfuscation. Leaks like the Unanswered Questions study showing autism all over the place in unacknowledged vaccine “court” rulings.

Leaks like the SafeMinds parents identifying autism as a “novel form of mercury poisoning” more than a decade ago.

Leaks like the Merck scientists who came forward to say the company faked data to make its mumps vaccine look effective.

Leaks like the connection between the first cases of autism reported in the medical literature, in 1943, and the families’ exposure to the new ethyl mercury vaccines and fungicides.

Leaks like the whole catastrophic half-a-millennium love affair between the medical industry and mercury, one that should have ended long before the autism tidal wave started carrying away America’s children.

Leaks like the most obvious one of all — the explosion of autism and the vaccine schedule at the same time Congress gave the nation’s corrupt drug makers a free ride in court, a ride on the backs of America’s vaccine-injured children and their stumbling families.

These leaks are becoming a flood, and the flood a tidal wave, just like the autism tidal wave, and the wave is washing away the whole wall of denial built by the same people who just about now are running out of fingers and toes to plug them with.

CDC whistleblower confesses to publishing fraudulent data to obfuscate link between vaccines and autism

CDC whistleblower confesses to publishing fraudulent data to obfuscate link between vaccines and autism

by Ethan A. Huff
Natural News
August 22, 2014

A medical conspiracy of epic proportions stands to bring down the entire vaccine house of cards following the revelation that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) censored key data linking the MMR vaccine to autism. A top CDC researcher-turned-whistleblower has come forward with the truth about a study that the CDC has long claimed proves the safety of MMR, when in fact it actually shows the exact opposite.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the CDC whistleblower told Dr. Brian Hooker from the Focus Autism Foundation (FAF) that a 2004 CDC study published in the journal Pediatrics, entitled “Age at First Measles-Mumps-Rubella Vaccination in Children With Autism and School-Matched Control Subjects: A Population-Based Study in Metropolitan Atlanta,” contains data that was deliberately manipulated to conceal the vaccine-autism connection.

Drs. Frank DeStefano, M.D., Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp, M.D., and Coleen Boyle, Ph.D., all employees of the CDC, published the joint paper that looked at 624 children with autism living in the Atlanta-metro area of Georgia. These children were evaluated alongside 1,824 children without autism, all of whom were matched according to age, gender, school and time of vaccination.

Between the two groups, similar proportions of children were vaccinated both before 18 months and before 24 months, with the bulk having been vaccinated between 12 and 17 months of age. And based on this analysis, researchers say they found no link between the MMR vaccine and autism, a claim that Dr. Boyle, who currently holds the position of Director of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities at the CDC, reiterated during a 2012 Congressional hearing.

CDC altered study sample size to obscure autism link, particularly in black boys

The implication, of course, is that these findings prove once and for all that MMR does not cause autism, a claim heralded by the mainstream media as undeniable fact. But according to the CDC whistleblower, everything is not as it seems when it comes to what the study actually found.

Early on in the research, it was apparently discovered that African American boys who received the MMR vaccine at three years of age or younger were 340 percent more likely to develop autism than other children. This is obviously not what the CDC wanted to find, as it betrays the loyalty that the agency has to the vaccine industry. So the CDC basically scrubbed it by paring down the sample size, excluding children who did not have a State of Georgia birth certificate.

“CDC researchers excluded children that did not have a valid State of Georgia birth certificate — reducing the sample size being studied by 41%,” explains an FAF press release on this groundbreaking discovery. “[B]y introducing this arbitrary criteria into the analysis, the cohort size was sharply reduced, eliminating the statistical power of the findings and negating the strong MMR-autism link in African American boys.”

Dr. Wakefield’s new film exposes MMR-autism coverup by CDC

What the CDC did, in essence, was recreate the original study design after it was discovered that the original one showed adverse effects associated with MMR. In other words, the CDC deliberately withheld the truth about MMR, manufacturing a false study after the fact in order to arrive at what appears to have been a predetermined outcome.

“The results of the original study first appeared in the journal Pediatrics which receives financial support from vaccine makers via advertising and direct donations,” adds the FAF announcement. “[This fraudulent study] is widely used by the CDC and other public health organizations to dismiss any link between vaccines and autism — a neurological disorder on the rise.”

For people like Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist who had his career stolen from him over similar findings, this revelation is timely. No longer will the mainstream media be able to claim that no link between vaccines and autism exists, as this grand deception by the CDC proves that MMR isn’t nearly as safe as we’ve all been led to believe.

“We’ve missed 10 years of research because the CDC is so paralyzed right now by anything related to autism,” admitted the CDC whistleblower, who says he deeply regrets his previous involvement in the MMR-autism coverup. “They’re not doing what they should be doing because they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated.”

A new short film directed by Dr. Wakefield provides a visual timeline of the CDC’s misgivings concerning MMR and autism, linking the original experiment to the heinous Tuskegee syphilis experiment, which was foisted on unsuspecting African Americans back in the 1930s.

CDC refuses to turn over documents to Congress: Evidence linking MMR vaccines to autism intentionally withheld from investigators

CDC refuses to turn over documents to Congress:  Evidence linking MMR vaccines to autism intentionally withheld from investigators

by Mike Adams
Natural News
August 21, 2014

News has been rapidly exploding across the “truth media” regarding the CDC whistleblower who is now making shocking revelations: The CDC’s own research found that MMR vaccines caused autism in African-American children, and the agency knowingly buried this evidence to hide it from the public.

The scientific conspiracy went all the way to the top of the CDC, where Dr. Julie Gerberding — now an executive with vaccine maker Merck — took an active role in the cover-up and even arranged to have the whistleblower punished for trying to tell the truth.

CDC refuses to release evidence to Congress

Now we know that the CDC has also refused to turn over this information to Congress, too. U.S. Congressman Bill Posey (8th district, Florida) requested the documents from the CDC in a congressional hearing, but the CDC has stonewalled, refusing to turn over anything. This resulted in Congressman Posey calling for the CDC to be investigated. “The CDC can’t be trusted regarding investigating vaccine safety,” Posey said. “Huge conflict of interest. I think the CDC should be investigated.”

The full interview is available on the Autism One website.

This is all described in detail in this Age of Autism story which also delves into the runaway criminality of the CDC and its quack science front men such as Dr. Poul Thorsen. Dr. Thorsen — who was indicted by the Dept. of Justice for an elaborate money laundering scheme involving the CDC — engaged in exactly the kind of lies and deceptions we see reflected in biotech propagandists like Jon Entine, where so-called “scientific experts” routinely resort to outright lies and fabrications to protect corporate interests and try to silence skeptics.

Dr. Thorsen was a key conspirator who falsified research to “prove” that vaccines didn’t cause autism. This fraudulent research continues to be cited today by vaccine pushers, most of whom are fully aware of the dangers of vaccines but seem to want as many children to be harmed or killed as possible. The CDC took an active role in shaping this fraudulent research and funneling money into the hands of Dr. Thorsen so he could continue to carry out his vaccine fraud.

Click here to see the elaborate web of CDC fraud that’s still operating today.

CDC running a criminal racket steeped in scientific fraud

What’s now abundantly clear is that the CDC is operating what can only be called a “criminal racket” that’s steeped in scientific fraud for the sole purpose of hiding from the public the truth about MMR vaccine dangers. The CDC possessed irrefutable evidence in 2002 that MMR vaccines caused a 340% increase risk of autism in African-American babies, yet instead of warning the public, the agency’s top scientists and executives actively conspired to bury that evidence.

Now that Congressman Posey is attempting to get some answers, the CDC is also stonewalling his office.

I called Congressman Posey’s office and spoke with his media contact, who assured me the following statement from Posey is official and on the record:

“When it comes to our children, we must make sure that any intervention is as safe as possible, including vaccinations. Scientific integrity is a key component to giving that assurance. I will continue to press for a full understanding of the evidence in this situation. The CDC has refused for more than six months to hand over documents I requested concerning this issue. That is not the type of response we expect from our government.

When I asked for further clarification, Congressman Posey’s spokesperson explained, “We want to see the truth come out, and ultimately we want to see proper studies done so families can have assurances… and so the public knows the proper course of action regarding vaccinating their children.”

The CDC, of course, absolutely does not want the truth to come out. That’s the whole point of burying the evidence and refusing to turn over documents to Congress. In this regard, the CDC is acting in almost exactly the same way the IRS has been behaving regarding its targeting of conservative non-profit groups. These government departments, it turns out, behave like criminal fiefdoms beholden to no one.

CDC abandons scientific integrity to harm black babies

What’s even more horrifying about all this is how the CDC’s actions disproportionally harm African-American babies. The medical reasons for this harm are not yet clear, but it may be related to the rampant vitamin D deficiency among African-Americans due to their skin blocking UV rays from sunlight. (The situation is so bad that many black babies are literally being born today with rickets, a disease caused entirely by vitamin D deficiency.)

Did the CDC hold a meeting where its top decision makers said something like, “Oh well, it’s only BLACK babies being harmed by this, so let’s bury the evidence and tell the world MMR vaccines are safe.” ?

If it turned out that white babies were also being increasingly harmed by MMR vaccines, would the CDC have gone public with the findings instead of burying them?

It’s one thing to commit scientific fraud, deceive the public and withhold documents from a congressional investigation. It’s another thing entirely to do so based on a racist agenda, knowing that black babies would be permanently harmed and handicapped by the CDC’s actions.

The Edward Snowden of the CDC

Fortunately we have a CDC whistleblower who is stepping forward with all this information and who has already handed over nearly 100,000 pages of documentation to independent researchers such as Brian Hooker, PhD.

Blogger Jon Rappoport asks Do we have a “medical Edward Snowden?”

The answer is yes.

And Natural News has already learned that this whistleblower will soon step forward to reveal their own name and details about their long tenure at the CDC where they personally witnessed heinous crimes being committed against humanity in the name of “immunizations” and public health.

Natural News has already been informed of the name of this person, and I can verify this person is very real and very committed to disclosing the lies which have haunted him for the past 12 years.

Mainstream media being ordered to bury this story

The corporate-run vaccine pushers are, of course, completely panicked at the thought that the truth is about to come out linking MMR vaccines to autism. I’ve even noticed a sharp uptick in the disinfo and propaganda being spread about Natural News in a desperate effort to silence our voice as we stand on the verge of breaking this historic story.

I’ve also learned that every effort is being made right now by the vaccine shills (who are funded by vaccine corporations, of course) to pressure the mainstream media to bury this story in exactly the same way the CDC buried their own evidence. The New York Times, I’ve been told, has already been directed to pretend this CDC whistleblower doesn’t exist. (Just watch as the NYT ignores this story in the days ahead…) Other media outlets such as CNN, the Washington Post, Fox News, etc., are no doubt also being pressured in exactly the same way. And that’s why none of the mainstream media can ever be trusted on ANY news. (Because no matter what they do report, there’s far more they deliberately don’t tell you…)

The raw truth of the matter is that the CDC has now been caught red-handed committing scientific fraud and running what is certainly a criminal conspiracy to cause extraordinary harm and suffering to African-American children. A CDC whistleblower is about to step forward. Documents have already been acquired by Natural News and other truth media sources. These documents will all sooner or later be released to the public. The truth can no longer be buried.

Truth media now breaks all the really important stories

What’s even more amazing is that it doesn’t even matter if the New York Times completely censors this story. The “truth media” is now the dominant information source among the well-informed. Natural News alone reaches about 7 million readers a month, and our news is picked up and syndicated on hundreds of other websites. Every desperate attempt by the mainstream media to try to discredit Natural News has only brought us more readers, expanding our reach and audience for the simple reason that people naturally seek out the truth.

Even more importantly, if the New York Times fails to cover this story, that will only further discredit them as nothing more than a corporate propaganda mouthpiece. Think about it: How could a CDC whistleblower, scientific fraud and a racist-overtones vaccine cover-up NOT be a front-page story for any honest media outlet? This is a story that affects every single family in America, and it’s a story of extraordinary criminality and deception carried out by a corrupt government agency that has deliberately placed tens of millions of black babies in harm’s way.

This is one of the biggest stories in the history of medicine. By refusing to cover it, the mainstream media just hands Natural News and other “truth media” outlets the exclusive reporting on this story.

That’s why, as always, you’ll want to check Natural News for the real story as this CDC conspiracy unfolds. We’ll be releasing CDC documents in the days ahead, long before you’ll see them in the NYT… if ever.

Whistleblower goes public: CDC buried data showing vaccines increase risk of autism by 340%

Whistleblower goes public:  CDC buried data showing vaccines increase risk of autism by 340%

by J. D. Heyes
Natural News
August 21, 2014

A top scientist and researcher for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had a key role in helping Dr. Brian Hooker of the Focus Autism Foundation uncover manipulated data from the agency that obscured a higher incidence of autism in African American boys.

As reported by The Liberty Beacon, the whistleblower came to the attention of Hooker, who has a Ph.D. in biochemical engineering, following a Freedom of Information Act request for the original data regarding the DeStefano et al. MMR (measles, mumps rubella) and autism study.

The site further reported:

Dr. Hooker’s study, published August 8 in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Translational Neurodegeneration, shows that African-American boys receiving their first MMR vaccine before 36 months of age are 3.4 times more likely to develop autism vs. after 36 months.

According to Dr. Hooker, the CDC whistleblower, who at present wants to remain anonymous, guided him to evidence revealing that a statistically significant relationship between the age when the MMR vaccine was first administered and the incidence of autism in African American boys was hidden by CDC researchers.

‘Widespread manipulation of data’

After data on 2,583 children who were living in Atlanta, and who were born between 1986 and 1993, had been assembled, CDC researchers excluded children who did not have a valid State of Georgia birth certificate, a decision that reduced the sample size being studied by 41 percent.

Hooker said that by adopting this arbitrary criterion into the analysis, the cohort size was dramatically reduced, thereby eliminating the statistical power of the findings and essentially negating a very strong MMR-autism link in the boys.

Hooker, The Liberty Beacon reported, has been working closely with the whistleblower. He says he has viewed extremely sensitive documents related to the study via congressional request from U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

“The CDC documents from Congress and discussions that Hooker had with the whistleblower reveal widespread manipulation of scientific data and top-down pressure on CDC scientists to support fraudulent application of government policies on vaccine safety,” the website reported. “Based on raw data used in the 2004 DeStefano et al study obtained under FOIA, Dr. Hooker found that the link between MMR vaccination and autism in African-American boys was obscured by the introduction of irrelevant and unnecessary birth certificate criteria — ostensibly to reduce the size of the study.”

The results of the original study were first published in the peer-reviewed journal Pediatrics, a publication that receives financial support from vaccine makers via both advertising and direct donations, CBS News has reported.

The DeStefano study is widely cited by the CDC and other public health groups to dismiss any link between vaccines and autism, which is a neurological disorder that appears to be on the rise.

Whistleblower expresses deep regret over his role

“The CDC knew about the relationship between the age of first MMR vaccine and autism incidence in African-American boys as early as 2003, but chose to cover it up,” Dr. Hooker said, a claim that he says the whistleblower has confirmed.

When he was asked if there could be any scientific basis for excluding children born outside of Georgia, Dr. Hooker responded, “I know of none, and none has been provided by the authors of the DeStefano study.”

“The exclusion is reminiscent of tactics historically used to deprive African-Americans of the vote by requiring valid birth certificates,” he added.

Dr. Hooker said further research is needed to determine why, specifically, there is a 3.4-fold increase in autism rates when MMR is administered prior to 36 months of age and primarily in African American boys.

There has been a link between the MMR vaccine and autism in cases that have been compensated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, The Liberty Beacon reported, adding that the whistleblower has alleged criminal wrongdoing by his supervisors and has expressed deep regret over his role in helping the CDC hide data.

CDC caught in scientific fraud, perpetrating vaccine violence against blacks in shocking eugenics cover-up

CDC caught in scientific fraud, perpetrating vaccine violence against blacks in shocking eugenics cover-up

by Mike Adams
Natural News
August 20, 2014

Yesterday I wrote that Natural News is investigating a report of a massive scientific cover-up perpetrated at the very highest levels of the CDC.

Today I can report that I now have in my possession CDC documents which prove beyond any doubt that the former head of the CDC, Dr. Julie Gerberding, actively participated in willful scientific fraud in order to bury clinical evidence linking the MMR vaccine to a 340% increase in autism among African-American children.

Yes, the CDC knew that MMR vaccines caused autism in black babies, and its top scientists actively conspired to cover up that fact for the last twelve years.

What we are looking at here may be a criminal conspiracy of the highest order which, once fully exposed, will absolutely destroy the credibility of the Centers for Disease Control.

The CDC whistleblower who is stepping forward with all this information has been “haunted” by this cover-up for the last 12 years, and this person has now decided that protecting public health and scientific integrity is more important than protecting vaccine profits.

CDC head Dr. Julie Gerberding conspired to commit scientific fraud

These documents are going to be made public in mere days. They show that Dr. Gerberding and other CDC scientists actively and knowingly conspired to commit scientific fraud in order to hide the truth about vaccines and autism from the public. Dr. Gerberding was later rewarded for her scientific conspiracy with a lucrative executive position at vaccine maker Merck, where she still works today.

We will also present evidence showing that the CDC whistleblower who attempted to tell the truth about all this was reprimanded by CDC leadership as a form of punishment for not falling in line with the lies and the cover-up. CDC leadership, in other words, actively suppressed its own scientist who was following true scientific protocols.

Furthermore, those CDC scientists who perpetrated the cover-up — including Coleen Boyle — were then granted a coveted award from the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services “Autism Public Health Response Team” for keeping their mouths shut about the scientific fraud they helped perpetrate.

That’s how things really work at the CDC: Suppress the science, punish any scientists who might speak out, perpetrate a massive public health fraud, then hold an awards ceremony for those who kept their mouths shut.

The CDC’s racist eugenics agenda now surfaces

What is especially heinous and disturbing about these revelations is that the CDC had in its possession irrefutable data linking MMR vaccines to autism in African-American children.

The agency then went out of its way to retroactively alter the study data to commit scientific fraud which they knew would bring harm to countless African-American babies. Today, there are untold thousands of young black children and teens who grew up with autism disorders due entirely to the CDC’s willful scientific fraud. Rather than warning the public about the autism risk of MMR vaccines, the CDC deliberately chose to hide this fact, all while lying to the African-American community by telling them “vaccines are safe!”

In essence, the CDC has perpetrated what can only be called “vaccine violence against blacks,” knowing that black babies would be seriously and permanently harmed by these vaccines yet doing absolutely nothing to warn the public or require safer vaccines from drug companies. To the CDC, black babies are always expendable.

Vaccine violence perpetrated against black Americans

This cover-up has continued for the last twelve years, during which anyone who dared mention the word “autism” in the same sentence as “vaccines” was immediately and viciously attacked by the scientific community, vaccine trolls and the mainstream media. Yet all this time, the CDC’s highest officers were fully aware that the MMR vaccine autism link was real. And it was black babies who were suffering the consequences of the cover-up.

Yes, a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri shot one black man and killed him, but the CDC allowed doctors to shoot up millions of black babies with dangerous vaccines that have caused untold pain, suffering and permanent damage across the African American community. The audacity and scale of this crime against humanity is almost unspeakable.

Even worse, the very people who were complicit in the engineered destruction of the medical career of Dr. Andrew Wakefield secretly knew his concerns were scientifically correct. They knew MMR vaccines caused autism, and yet they were willing to destroy the life of an honest doctor in order to cover up their own fraud and lies. The criminality of this conspiracy is vast and deeply rooted in corporate-sponsored evil and scientific fraud.

Irrefutable evidence coming out in mere days

Natural News will be publishing these CDC documents in a matter of days. The documents are shocking. The CDC has been caught red-handed. There is no covering this up, and the entire mainstream media owes all vaccine skeptics a huge apology right now: we were right all along to warn the public about vaccine dangers.

The web of lies and “scientific” fictions that has propped up the vaccine industry for decades is headed for collapse. Those who promoted these vaccines will rightly be seen as the racist eugenics promoters they truly are. The very term “vaccine” will soon be synonymous with “scientific fraud.” The history of modern medicine changes course in just a few days. Soon, the whole world will know that the vaccine empire operating today was built upon a foundation of callous racism, medical lies and scientific fraud.

This is all on top of the vaccine fraud we’ve already documented here at Natural News thanks to two courageous whistleblowers who used to work as virologists for Merck. They filed a False Claims Act with the federal government, accusing Merck of committing extreme scientific fraud with the fabrication of vaccine efficacy data.

Guess where former CDC head Dr. Gerberding now works? Also Merck.

CDC whistleblower reveals cover-up linking MMR vaccines to autism in African-Americans

CDC whistleblower reveals cover-up linking MMR vaccines to autism in African-Americans

by Mike Adams
Natural News
August 20, 2014

Natural News is currently investigating a breaking story based on a CDC whistleblower stepping forward with shocking proof of an incredible cover-up. According to information available so far, it appears the CDC knowingly engaged in a medical conspiracy to deliberately hide from the public damning evidence about MMR vaccines causing a very large increase in autism among African-American babies.

I’m posting this update to let Natural News readers know we are actively investigating this groundbreaking story which may turn out to be a larger cover-up than the Tuskegee experiments. Much like Tuskegee, this story also involves the suffering of African-Americans at the hands of a corporate-run medical cartel that systematically sacrifices lives for profit.

If what we are hearing so far is true, it means the CDC has deliberately run a decade-long cover-up which condemned tens of thousands of African-American children to a life of autism caused by MMR vaccines. It would also mean the CDC has engaged in a shameless conspiracy to hide the truth about the damage caused by vaccines, confirming the agency’s primary mission of protecting pharmaceutical profits even at the expense of human life.

This story is potentially the greatest scientific conspiracy in the history of modern medicine. Accordingly, you can expect the entire mainstream media to completely censor the story and try to pretend it never happened.

Read the press release and watch the video

Here’s what has been published so far. This will get you up to speed on what’s happening:

Natural News investigation under way

As I mentioned above, Natural News is investigating this story with due diligence. We are gathering additional evidence which has not yet been made public, and we fully expect to bring our millions of readers a more detailed report as soon as we can complete our investigation.

This story has the potential to completely shatter the campaign of lies and deceit which has been waged by the CDC and vaccine poisoners for many decades. If the full truth about MMR vaccines and autism comes out — and the malicious nature of the cover-up is fully revealed — no one will ever trust the CDC or the vaccine industry again.

Especially not black Americans, most of whom already don’t trust anything the government says in the first place.
