CDC Whistleblower: Mercury in Vaccines Given to Pregnant Women Causes Autism

CDC Whistleblower: Mercury in Vaccines Given to Pregnant Women Causes Autism

Today, the Autism Media Channel released a short video where CDC whistle-blower Dr. William Thompson states, in a phone call to Dr. Brian Hooker, that injecting mercury into pregnant women creates a “clear and present danger” to the unborn child. Thimerosal, a form of mercury used as a preservative in vaccines, was removed from most childhood vaccines a few years ago, but is still in the annual flu shot, which is recommended for pregnant women.

Dr. Thompson, in the video below, insists that this mercury in vaccines causes “tics” in children, and that these tics are 4 times more prevalent in kids with autism. “Tics” are defined on the CDC website as: “Tics are sudden twitches, movements, or sounds that people do repeatedly. People who have tics cannot stop their body from doing these things. For example, a person with a motor tic might keep blinking over and over again. Or, a person with a vocal tic might make a grunting sound unwillingly.”

In other news emerging today on the CDC Whistle-Blower story:

Dr. Brian Hooker’s Published Study on CDC Data Removed from “Public Domain”

Dr. Brian Hooker’s study, published on the re-analysis of the CDC data from a 2004 CDC publication that Dr. Thompson participated in, was removed from the “public domain” today by the publisher, Translational Neurodegeneration. They give the reason for its removal as:

This article has been removed from the public domain because of serious concerns about the validity of its conclusions. The journal and publisher believe that its continued availability may not be in the public interest. Definitive editorial action will be pending further investigation. Source.

Dr. Thompson Makes Public Statement via Attorney

Late today Dr. Thompson finally released a public statement via his attorney:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—AUGUST 27, 2014

STATEMENT OF WILLIAM W. THOMPSON, Ph. D., REGARDING THE 2004 ARTICLE EXAMINING THE POSSIBILITY OF A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MMR VACCINE AND AUTISM

My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention where I have worked since 1998.

I regret my co-authors 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 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data was collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.

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.

My concern has been the decision to omit relevant findings in a particular study for a particular sub-group for a particular vaccine. There have always been recognized risks for vaccination and I believe it is the responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks associated with the receipt of those vaccines.

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 analyses should be transparent. I was not, however, aware that he was recording any of our conversations, nor was I given any choice regarding whether my name would be made public or my voice would be put on the Internet.

I am grateful for the many supportive emails that I have received over the last several days. I will not be answering questions at this time. I am providing information to Congressman William Posey, and of course will continue to cooperate with Congress. I have also offered to assist with reanalysis of the study data of development of further studies. For the time being, however, I am focused on my job and my family.

Reasonable scientists can and do differ in their interpretation of information. I will do everything I can to assist any unbiased and objective scientists outside of the CDC to analyze data collected by the CDC or other public organizations for the purpose of understanding whether vaccines are associated with an increased risk of autism. There are still more questions than answers, and I appreciate that so many families are looking for answers from the scientific community.

My colleagues and supervisors at the CDC have been entirely professional since this matter became public. In fact, I received a performance-based award after this story came out. I have experienced no pressure or retaliation and certainly was not escorted out of the building as some have stated.

Dr. Thompson is represented by Frederick M. Morgan, Jr., Morgan Verkamp, LLC, Cincinnati, Ohio. (Source.)

I asked Dr. Hooker about this press release, and he told me “the recordings were legal”. He is very happy with how things are proceeding at this point, since Dr. Thompson is cooperating with Congress.

OK- so now people know about the tics in AA children given MMR under age of 2 years.

TBH- vaccinations terrify me. Every appt, I spend a couple sleepless nights, tossing and turning, ready to call and cancel our appt.

I did a research paper on homeopathic remedies for learning disabilities (Homeopathy for LD: Fact or Fiction....lol...). I learned so much. Homeopathy is the basis of immunizations. You introduce the "essence" of the virus for through dilution by vacillation, but not the actual virus. The body interprets the essence as the actual virus, and creates an "army" to annihilate it. Now you have created antibodies.

Anyhow, I have no fear of the immunizations. They have cured plagues. But where there is smoke, there is fire. My instincts tell me something has gone askew with the administration of vaccines....perhaps the thimerosal...or something else.

I brought my concerns to my pedi. She literally said, "you just have to hope for the best."

There is no reason people should not be concerned. There is some reason autism, ADHD, bipolar, etc. are becoming epidemic. Every possible culprit deserves intense concern and scrutiny.

Yes okay *rolls eyes* I didn't read the whole article but my son who has a mild form of autism, has only been vaxed out of the womb, and has only received theflu vaccine once when he was six months old. I didn't get one vaccine while pregnant with him and wont with this baby. So I got the flu for three weeks eh I survived. But vaccines don't cause autism, especially in pregnant women.

 Was your son vaccinated at all?
