Do vaccines cause autism? Despite the fact that multiple studies, published in highly reputable peer-reviewed journals, indicate a plausible link between serious immunological/neurodevelopmental disorders and vaccines, even a hint at mentioning such a link is greeted with harsh criticism. This generally comes from a lack of education, and that includes many doctors and scientists who remain completely unaware of studies which were sponsored by organizations other than the vaccine manufacturers themselves.
It’s time we start understanding where people who choose not to vaccinate their children are coming from, and there is a plethora of information in THIS heavily sourced article that can help you out if you don’t understand.
One example is a study published in the journal Current Medical Chemistry in 2011, you can read that here.
Another example, by the same authors (but a different study) in the same year was published in the Journal Inorganic Biochemistry, you can read that here.
A more recent example comes from a paper that was published in the journal Immunome Research, which outlines the dangers associated with vaccines and the development of certain disorders, including autism. You can read that here.
Another fairly recent Meta-Analysis, published in the Journal Bio Med Research International, found that the studies which the CDC consistently relies upon to prove that there is no increased risk of autism from exposure to specific ingredients – studies which they themselves coauthored and sponsored – are in sharp contrast to research conducted by scientists over the past 75 + years. You can view that Meta-Analysis here.
This brings me to the point made in the video below. If we look at some of the most common studies cited by the CDC denying the link between vaccines and autism, like this one (published in in the Journal of Pediatrics), something interesting comes to light. The study concluded that: “The evidence is now convincing that the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine does not cause autism or any particular subtypes of autism spectrum disorder.” (source1)(source2)
The important thing that comes to light to look at with the above CDC study, and many more, is that one of the lead authors of those multiple studies recently said:
“It’s the lowest point in my career that I went along with that paper and uh, I went along with this, we didn’t report significant findings. I’m completely ashamed of what I did, I have great shame now that I was complicit and went along with this, I have been a part of the problem.” (source)
…The [CDC] co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the [MMR vaccine] 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 hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.” (from video below)
This is the same type of behaviour that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. warned us about, in his 2005 Rolling Stone article titled “Dead Immunity.”
It’s important to note that this congressman is still “pro-vaccine” and so is Dr. Thompson, as you will see from a couple of statements provided below the video.
More From Dr. Thompson
A study with revised information and no data omission was published by Dr. Brian Hooker (a contact of Dr. Thompson), PhD in the peer reviewed journal Translational Neurodegeneration, and it found a 340 percent increased risk of autism in African American boys receiving the Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine on time. The study has since been retracted during the same time of this controversy

This story was becoming so big across alternative news networks, like CE, that mainstream media outlets like CNN picked up on it as quick as they could and tried to spin the story. But at least they admitted that yes, Dr. Thompson did actually blow the whistle:
“I regret that my co-authors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article,” Thompson said in a statement sent to CNN by his lawyer. “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.” (source)(source)
That being said, he also said in an official statement from his lawyers on August 27th 2014:
“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.” (source)
