Another study has surfaced showing a potential link to vaccines as being a cause or contributing factor (out of what could be many) to autism.
The study was published by Dr. Brian Hooker, PhD in the peer reviewed Journal Translational Neurodegeneration and found a 340 percent increased risk of autism in African American boys receiving the Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine on time.(1)
You can read the full study HERE. (Hopefully it’s still available at this link)
IMPORTANT UPDATE: This study was peer-reviewed and approved, days later (after I had completed this article) it was pulled (see source one). More on this study is available in the video below. Mainstream media outlets are now picking up this story:
“CNN has spoken to the CDC and other parties related to this study, and is working on a story” (http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1164046)
*CNN has published their story. http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/27/health/irpt-cdc-autism-vaccine-study/index. As expected, it’s a terrible presentation full of misinformation. There was no doubt that it would be presented like this. There is an enormous amount of evidence that clearly shows vaccines are not as safe as they are marketed to be. The same group of shareholders that own CNN also own the health/vaccine industry, think about that for a moment.
***Please watch the video below, the CNN article refers to it, and also has live statements from the CDC whistleblower also mentioned in this article.

This was the abstract:
“When comparing cases and controls receiving their first MMR vaccine before and after 36 months of age, there was a statistically significant increase in autism cases specifically among African American males who received the first MMR vaccine prior to 35 months of age. Relative risks for males in general and African American males were 1.69 and 3.36, respectively. Additionally, African American males showed an odds ratio of 1.73 for autism cases in children receiving their first MMR vaccine prior to 24 months of age and thereafter. The present study provides new epidemiologic evidence showing that African American males receiving the MMR vaccine prior to 24 months of age or 36 months of age are more likely to receive an autism diagnosis.”(1)
Dr. Hooker also recently published a study in the same journal that provided epidemiological evidence supporting an association between increasing organic-Hg exposure from Thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines and the risk of an ASD diagnosis.(3)
On the contrary, here is a study done on African children concluding that there is strong evidence against the MMR autism hypothesis, but the study can be considered out-dated due to the fact it was conducted approximately twenty years ago.
These studies do not prove that vaccines cause autism, but they do suggest vaccines may play a role in it, as do many others. We should always be questioning the study, no matter what it concludes, and that also goes for studies that have determined there is no link between vaccines and autism.
The cause of autism is still unknown, but we are definitely closer to figuring it out. A new study published in the peer reviewed journal PLOS Computational Biology, from researchers at the University of Chicago, revealed that autism and intellectual disability (ID) rates are linked with exposure to harmful environmental factors (toxins) during congenital development. (4)
“Essentially what happens is during pregnancy… there are certain sensitive periods where the fetus is very vulnerable to a range of small molecules – from things like plasticisers, prescription drugs, environmental pesticides and other things. Some of these small molecules essentially alter normal development. Autism appears to be strongly correlated with rate of congenital malformations of the genitals in males across the country, this gives an indicator of environmental load and the effect is surprisingly strong. The strongest predictors for autism were associated with the environment; congenital malformations on the reproductive system in males.”(4)

A new vaccine study published in the peer-reviewed journal Molecular and Genetic Medicine is bringing more awareness to the connection between the dramatic increase in the quantity of routine childhood vaccines and the correlating increase in inflammation-associated disorders.
“A massive increase in immunization has occurred. In the United States for example since just 1999 children are scheduled to routinely receive over 80 additional vaccines over their childhood. The increase in immunization has been followed by a huge increase in inflammation associated disorders like autism.One major problem with vaccines is the concept of one size fits all. Package inserts of almost all vaccines recommend a dose based on age. In order for a vaccine to be a commercial success it is expected to induce a protective immune response in well over 90% of children. In order for this to happen, a dose, based on age, must stimulate a protective immune response in those with the weakest immune system. In the process of doing this, the other 90% or more of children have their immune system over stimulated. The process of over stimulating the immune system time and time again increases the risk of inflammatory diseases like autoimmune disease, and allergies which cause even more inflammation.” (8)
A paper published in the peer reviewed International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health titled Thimerosal Exposure and the Role of Sulfation Chemistry and Thiol Availability in Autism concluded:
“With the rate of children diagnosed with an ASD in the US now exceeding 1 in 50 children and the rate of children with neurodevelopment/behavioural disorders in the US now exceeding 1 in 6 children, and the preceding evidence showing that there is vulnerability to ™ that would not be known without extensive testing, the preponderance of the evidence indicates that ™ should be removed from all vaccines”
A paper published in the Journal of Toxicology titled B-Lymphocytes from a population of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Their Unaffected Siblings Exhibit Hypersensitivity to Thimerosal clearly demonstrates that certain individuals with a mild mitochondrial defect may be highly susceptible to mitochondrial specific toxins like thimerosal.
Dr. Theresa Deisher, a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Physiology from Stanford University, the first person to discover adult cardiac derived stem cells, determined that residual human fetal DNA fragments in vaccines can be one of the causes of autism in children through vaccination.(5)
Here is an article that provides direct evidence that the CDC’s safety assurances about the mercury-containing preservative are not fact-based, according to the article’s lead author, Brian Hooker, PhD.
The list goes on and on, and literally numbers in the hundreds.
CDC Controversy on Vaccine Autism Cover Up
**It’s great to see a couple of mainstream media outlets acknowledge this possibility, as CBS and Yahoo have done, which is interesting because mainstream media outlets usually stay away from the autism/vaccine controversy.
I think it’s important to keep an open mind with regards to health authorities covering up information involving the risks associated with vaccines. Proof is already in the public domain. Researchers at the University of British Colombia have uncovered evidence showing that health authorities, pharmaceutical companies and vaccine manufactures have known about the dangers associated with multiple vaccines, but have withheld them from public knowledge in order to maintain “herd immunity.” (6) In light of this information, it’s not difficult to ponder the possibility of the CDC withholding information as well.
What’s also interesting to note is the fact that a congressional record from May 1, 2003 clearly shows information from the CDC’s own Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) database that there is a very high risk of autism as a result of Thimerosal-containing vaccines. (7) Despite the public disclosure of this congressional record, the CDC continues to maintain that there is no relationship.
I think it’s also important to note that the CDC and pharmaceutical companies have a similar “revolving” door like Monsanto and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). For example, the former director of the CDC (which purchases $4 billion worth of vaccines annually) is now president of Merck’s vaccine division.
“Apparently the medical profession does not read the safety data sheets provided by Lilly and other chemical manufacturers made available to physicians, pharmacies, hospitals and health departments. It states for thimerosal: toxic, mutagen, allergen, hypersensitivity, alters genetic materials, may cause mild to severe mental retardation, may cause mild to severe motor coordination, all sounds a lot like autism.” Dr. Frank Engley (source)
Below is a video that shines light on a recent CDC whistle blower Dr. William Thompson, who has just come out and stated publicly that the CDC has committed scientific fraud, and knew that vaccines are correlated with autism. He admits that he chose to participate in the cover up. In the video you will see Dr. Brian Hooker, the author of multiple studies mentioned in this article.
As mentioned, a top research scientist working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a key role in helping Dr. Brian Hooker of the Focus Autism Foundation uncover data manipulation by the CDC that obscured a higher incidence of autism in African-American boys. The whistleblower came to the attention of Hooker, a PhD in biochemical engineering, after he had made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for original data on MMR and autism study.
Dr. Hooker has viewed highly sensitive documents related to the study via Congressional request from U.S. Representative Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. He is not the only congressman to get involved, another one was Bill Posey and you can read more about that HERE.
As illustrated at the start of the article, 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 were 3.4 times more likely to develop autism vs. after 36 months.
In the study Dr. Hooker notes how a statistically significant relationship between the age that the MMR vaccine was first given and autism incidence in African-American boys has not yet been made public by CDC researchers.
In March 2013, the CDC published a study titled, “Increasing exposure to Antibody-Stimulating Proteins and Polysaccharides (antigens) in Vaccines is Not Associated with Risk of Autism.’(source)
The video below and information in this article, however, contradicts the study listed above.
