Immediate Congressional Hearings on CDC Fraudulent Pediatric Vaccine Research

Recent evidence demonstrates the CDC Omitted and Falsified Pediatric Vaccine Safety Research Data

It has come to the public's attention that scientists involved in as many as 8 epidemiological studies focused on the link between ethyl mercury in vaccines and increased risk of autism have omitted data, repeated analyses until the desired result of no association is forced, watered down the significance of positive findings of results showing association, and pressured co-workers to do the same.

Dr. William Thompson stepped forward via his legal representatives to issue a statement confirming that he, and co-workers. In the statement, he wrote:

"I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed."

Rep. Posey has recently entered into the Congressional Record the full compilation of evidence provided by Dr. Thompson.

We believe that a full Congressional hearing, complete with subpoena of all of the co-authors of the studies in question, including Dr. Thompson, and CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden, is needed and is appropriate given the gravity of the possibility that eleven years ago, CDC scientists could have provided evidence that would indicate the wisdom of the cessation of the use of Thimerosal in vaccines and required the use of other, safer preservatives. Thimerosal contains ethyl mercury, a neurotoxin that has been demonstrated to rob developing neurons of the energy needed to grow, and has been demonstrated to be sequestered preferentially in organs, including the brain, longer than methyl mercury. Due to the addition of 15 inoculations to the pediatric schedule, children on the CDC schedule were given, before age 10, 575ug of ethyl mercury, compared to children in 2000, who received 75ug. Over the same time period, rates of autism increased to 1 in 68. Over 2% of Americans born in 2012 have autism. Thimerosal is still found in four vaccines. The CDC reports (incorrectly) that it is still only found in one.

It may be imagined that autism is an old condition - an acceptable risk of being born, and growing up in this world. Autism is not an old condition - in the original description of the disease in the 1940's, the author stated that the condition was new and completely unknown to medical science.

As you may know, the Homeland Security Act was passed with a provision that indemnified vaccine manufacturers from litigation. A Vaccine Court was established, funded by a small tax on every vaccine. In our view, children with autism, and their families, should receive the financial support they need for lifetime care of the autistic individual. Moreover, we believe that they should be found by the court. They should not be burdened with the task of petitioning the court.

We believe that the production of all vaccines - including those shipped overseas - should meet the standards of a ban on Thimerosal, and any other neurotoxin. All ingredients should be shown to do no harm to the developing human brain, the greatest resource our species has for its survival. We believe the CDC should be relieved of the responsibility of research on vaccine safety. Given the universal nature of vaccines, we believe, as does Dr. Thompson, that an independent research institution be given the responsibility of safeguarding the US population from harm and insuring that only safe vaccines are included on the schedule.

We believe that the Vaccine Board has too many conflicts of interest, and should be replaced by a truly independent board composed of medical doctors proposed and elected by a College of Families who have endured medical malpractice, and that it should be illegal for any member of the Vaccine Safety Board to have any financial interest in the products they are charged with approving.

Due to the revelations by Dr. Thompson, which are extensive, all research by the CDC "demonstrating" that vaccines do not cause autism is suspect. We urge you all to support Rep Posey in his calls for Congressional Hearings on these matters immediately. We urge you to personally take up the position of demanding SAFE vaccines for us. We are your constituents.
