Fraud at the CDC uncovered, 340% increased risk of autism hidden from public - CNN iReport

Fraud at the CDC uncovered, 340% increased risk of autism hidden from public

By eplettner  | Posted August 24, 2014  | Seminole, Florida

CNN PRODUCER NOTE    CNN iReport is the network's user-generated news community. This story was initially pulled for further review after it was flagged by the community. CNN has reached out to the CDC for comment and is working to confirm the claims in this iReport.

UPDATE - 8/27/2014 12:16 EST

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 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 at ( ). A quick look at these 4 studies raises several questions.

  • 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.

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 over half (50%) of children with autism did regress shortly after the MMR vaccine (<5 months) even though they then concluded there was no connection.

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.

The full CDC statement can be seen here

UPDATE: Autism Speaks reports that "Regressive Autism Reported Twice as Often among African American Children" It would seem to be directly connected to the recent release of documents CDC documents and admissions by CDC Government researcher William Thopmson. This at least bears looking into.

A recent release of another document shows that William Thompson was so concerned with the report, in light of a 2002 Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation, that the he considered removing his name from the paper. In light of his recent statements and released documents could all of the lawyers involved have been to try and prevent information release?

New post in CDC whistleblower on cover up - MMR and Autism

New post on the CDC whistleblower for a cover up of study showing connection between the MMR vaccine and autism.

Here is Dr. Andrew Wakefield's short 9 minute film on it at:


Vitamin D deficiency and low bone mass found in adolescents with eating disorders

Vitamin D deficiency and low bone mass found in adolescents with eating disorders

A new study published in International Journal of Eating Disorders found vitamin D deficiency to be very prevalent among adolescents with eating disorders.

Patients with eating disorders are at high risk for osteoporosis and other bone-related disorders. Osteoporosis is when bones become very weak over time so that even a slight fall can cause a fracture.

This increased risk comes from eating less, consuming low amounts of important nutrients, and having subsequent low body weight.

In females, low body weight can cause the body to stop producing estrogen which contributes to loss of bone density. People with anorexia, an eating disorder characterized by intense food restriction, the body produces an excess of the hormone cortisol which is known to contribute to bone loss.

This is especially important in children and adolescents as it is a time of growth in which bone development is extremely important.

Knowing vitamin D’s role in bone health and in reducing the risk of osteoporosis and osteomalacia, researchers from Israel recently conducted a study on vitamin D levels in adolescents with eating disorders.

They recruited 87 adolescents aged 14 to 18 years old who had anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or other eating disorders. They measured the vitamin D levels, bone mineral density as well as other nutritional markers.

The researchers found that 83% of the patients had vitamin D levels lower than 32 ng/ml, the commonly determined level in which bone growth is maintained. They also found that lumbar spine bone mineral density was low.

“Given the risk of osteoporosis in this population, 25(OH)D levels found in this group may not offer optimal bone protection,” the researchers conclude.

“Vitamin D levels should be routinely checked and supplementation should be administered as required.”

New study finds vitamin D deficiency is related to food allergies and eczema in infants

New study finds vitamin D deficiency is related to food allergies and eczema in infants

A recent study published in Journal of Pediatrics suggests that infants with vitamin D deficiency are at an increased risk for food allergies than infants with vitamin D sufficiency. The study also found that the severity of eczema may be related to vitamin D status.

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is an inflammatory condition that makes your skin red and itchy. The condition often causes the skin to crack and form lesions, creating an area prone to infection.

It is known that eczema is more common at a young age, with about half of all cases clearing up by 18 months of age. Allergies are also more common at a young age.

Vitamin D is of interest in both eczema and allergies because of its ability to reduce inflammation and regulate the immune system. Research on allergies has revealed that both low and high levels of vitamin D may contribute to the development of allergies.

Researchers from Korea enrolled 226 infants with eczema or food allergies to compare vitamin D status to the prevalence and severity of both conditions.

The participants with food allergies were categorized based on their number of food allergies and the severity of food allergies. The participants with eczema were assigned a score to represent the degree of severity of the condition.

The researchers found that infants with more than one food allergy had significantly lower vitamin D levels than infants without food allergies or with only one food allergy. Infants with vitamin D deficiency were more likely to have food allergies, especially to milk and wheat.

In the infants with eczema, the severity of eczema was significantly associated with vitamin D levels.

“Our results suggest that vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of sensitization to food allergens and that atopic dermatitis may be more severe in infants with vitamin D deficiency,” the researchers conclude.

Further clinical trials are needed to investigate the treatment of food allergies and atopic dermatitis with vitamin D supplementation.

Back-to-school Vaccines: Know the Risks and Failures by Barbara Loe Fisher (share!)

Back-to-school Vaccines:  Know the Risks and Failures by Barbara Loe Fisher 

Watch her video a 9 minute video here:

As summer comes to an end, the drumbeat promoting back-to-school vaccinations grows louder and louder in America. Unlike children in Canada and the European Union,1 2 our children must get dozens of doses of vaccines or they can’t get a public school education.3

No Shots, No School, No Exceptions

Over the past century, denial of a public school education has been used like a club by public health and medical trade officials demanding that state legislators enact “No Shots, No School, No Exceptions” vaccine laws.4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 In 1914, children had to get one dose of smallpox vaccine to go to school.13 In 2014, children entering kindergarten must get a minimum of 29 doses of 9 vaccines.14 Babies enrolled in daycare get even more vaccines.15

Medical Exemptions Rarely Granted

Parents in 48 states can file a religious or personal belief vaccine exemption but some states make those exemptions very hard to get.16 A medical exemption is allowed in all states but doctors rarely grant them to children anymore because almost all medical reasons for delaying or withholding a vaccine have been eliminated.17 18 19

Government and medical trade officials have narrowed medical contraindications to vaccination after Congress shielded doctors and vaccine manufacturers from vaccine injury lawsuits.20 Today, even children with severely compromised immune systems are given most vaccines.21

Doctors Practicing Authoritarian Medicine

Now that everybody is a candidate for vaccination all the time, liability free doctors have been given a green light to practice authoritarian medicine.22 23 24 Distraught parents are contacting NVIC and telling us that pediatricians are dismissing their child’s vaccine reactions as unimportant and refusing to make a report to the federal vaccine adverse events reporting system. Mothers describe how pediatricians are screaming at them if they decline a vaccination or simply ask for fewer shots to be given to their child on the same day.25

Recently, a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics26 proclaimed publicly that he is justified in getting angry at and discriminating against parents disobeying his orders to give their children every federally recommended vaccine on schedule27 which, by the way, means 49 doses of 14 vaccines between day of birth and age 6 with 20 more doses of vaccines by age 18.28

Calling those parents “a public health menace” and comparing them to “substance abusers,” he refuses to treat their children. He said – QUOTE - “That person is a danger, not only to themselves but is a danger to society, a danger to other children in my practice, a danger to old people, a danger to everyone.”29

Pediatricians Exempt from Vaccine Injury Lawsuits

It is sad and frightening when doctors demonize and threaten parents making thoughtful medical risk decisions for their children. The American Academy of Pediatrics knows that vaccines carry serious risks for some children because AAP leaders successfully lobbied Congress to be exempt from vaccine injury lawsuits.30 31

Some People More Susceptible to Vaccine Reactions

If you or your child are tested positive for the MTHFR gene mutations, you have between a 20% to as high as 70% reduction in your capacity to detoxification from heavy metals in all vaccines.  You can do a simple ONCE IN A LIFE TIME easy at home saliva test for $99 - $150 to see if your child has this genetic MTHFR mutation to before you vaccinate.  I urge all parents to know their child’s MTHFR status before vaccinating.  
Read and learn more here:

But even if $3 billion dollars in federal vaccine injury compensation had not already been awarded to vaccine victims in America,32 and even if the Institute of Medicine had not published a series of reports confirming that vaccines can cause injury and death,33 34 35 36 37 everybody knows that people do not all respond the same way to pharmaceutical products38 like vaccines

Each one of us is born with unique genes and a unique microbiome39 influenced by epigenetics,40 which affects how we respond to the different environments we live in. Some of us are more susceptible to vaccine complications.41 42 Public health officials have known this for a long, long time.43 44

Learn How to Identify Vaccine Reaction

With so many pediatricians denying vaccine risks and failures, it is even more important for parents to do their own research. If your child is getting back-to-school shots, you should know how to identify symptoms of a vaccine reaction. Once your child has had a vaccine reaction, revaccination may cause a more serious reaction.45 Plus, you only have two years to file a claim in the federal vaccine injury compensation program after a vaccine-related death or three years after a vaccine injury.46 47

A few of the more serious vaccine reaction symptoms are:

  • Convulsion or seizure symptoms include eyes fluttering and rolling back in the head; twitching, trembling, jerking, shaking or sudden rigidity of one or more parts of the body.53 54  55  56
  • High Fever between 103 and 105 degrees F. or more.48 49
  • High Pitched Screaming, also known as the encephalitic cry, is described as a shrill scream, shriek or wail that goes on for hours. Mothers often say they have never heard this type of crying before. Sometimes babies arch their backs while screaming, which can be a sign of brain inflammation.50
  • Collapse/Shock. The child may be pale, have bluish lips and suddenly go limp and appear to be unconscious.51 52
  • Excessive Sleepiness is when the child sleeps deeply without moving for hours after vaccination and does not respond to noise, touch or light and cannot be easily awakened to eat.57 58 59
  • Brain Inflammation, also called encephalitis or acute encephalopathy, has been recognized as a very serious complication of vaccination since the first vaccine for smallpox. Symptoms can include convulsions, high-pitched screaming, collapse, and hours of unconsciousness.60 61 62 63 64 65 66
  • Encephalopathy or chronic brain dysfunction can include physical and mental regression, dramatic personality and behavior changes, loss of muscle control, speech and other abilities, or the child may be unable to continue to meet developmental milestones.67 68 69 70 71

Vaccine Reactions May Take A Week or Longer to Appear

This is not a full list of vaccine reaction symptoms and there are other types of reactions affecting immune and brain function involving the skin,72 73 74 joints,75 76 blood77 78 and other parts of the body that can be warning signs a child may be sensitive to one or more vaccines. Some reactions develop within hours of vaccination while others, like convulsions following MMR vaccination, can take a week or more to appear.79

Review Vaccine Manufacturer Information & Vaccine Ingredients

Before vaccination, read the vaccine manufacturer’s product inserts so you are aware of the types of serious health problems reported in pre-licensure clinical trials and during post-marketing surveillance.80 Take a look at vaccine ingredients as well, because some children are allergic to antibiotics, gelatin, MSG, Thimerosal, yeast, egg protein and other vaccine ingredients.81 82

Vaccine Immunity Not Permanent: Pertussis Vaccine Failures

Parents also need to know that vaccine acquired immunity is not permanent and fully vaccinated children can still get and transmit infectious diseases.83 Vaccine failures and waning immunity is a real problem for vaccines like B. pertussis,84 85 also known as whooping cough. The FDA reported last year that vaccinated persons still can be infected with and transmit pertussis, sometimes without even showing any symptoms.86 The majority of children in many pertussis outbreaks have been vaccinated.87 88

Learn Symptoms of Pertussis (Whooping Cough)

Signs of B. pertussis whooping cough range from a low fever, loss of appetite and a mild cough to violent paroxysmal coughing with choking and vomiting of large amounts of sticky mucus for many weeks.89 Small infants can suffer brain damage or die from pertussis if they cannot clear mucus clogging their airways.90

Understanding vaccine risks and failures is a vital part of conscious parenting today.

Ask 8 Questions Before Vaccination


  • You can find well-referenced information about vaccines and diseases, including vaccine manufacturer product inserts, and a brochure that lists 8 questions you should ask yourself before your child is vaccinated;
  • You can review vaccine reaction reports made to the federal vaccine adverse events reporting system.
  • You can read testimonials on the Cry for Vaccine Freedom Wall by Americans describing how they are being persecuted when they try to make informed, voluntary decisions about vaccination for themselves and their children.
  • You can sign up for the free online NVIC Advocacy Portal and work to secure informed consent protections in your state’s vaccine laws. 

It is really important to find an intelligent, enlightened doctor you can trust, who treats you with respect and your child with compassion. Plan to spend at least as much time empowering yourself with information and carefully thinking about vaccines and diseases as you do when you buy a new car or a new home.

It’s your health.  Your family.  Your choice.

Does soft drink consumption contribute to low vitamin D levels? YES

From the Vitamin D Council

Researchers have found that high consumption of soft drinks may relate to vitamin D deficiency in premenopausal women.

About one-half of the U.S. population consumes sugar-sweetened beverages on any given day. The over consumption of soft drinks has been associated with adverse health outcomes, including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, cardiovascular diseases and low bone mineral density.

Researchers recently conducted a study to see if consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages is associated with vitamin D status.

They enrolled 741 premenopausal women and gave them a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) survey to establish their consumption of sweetened beverages, including colas, sweet fruit drinks, and carbonated drinks. FFQ is a checklist of foods and beverages, in which participants record the foods and drinks that they consume and the frequency of their consumption.

The researchers found that those with a higher intake of colas had lower vitamin D levels. Women who drank more than three servings of colas per week had 12.7% lower vitamin D levels compared to non-consumers.

Out of the women who drank more than three servings of colas per week, 47.8% had vitamin D levels below 20 ng/ml and 10.9% had vitamin D levels below 12 ng/ml.

A correlation between carbonated beverages and vitamin D levels was observed, but it was insignificant. There was no association between sweet fruit drinks and vitamin D levels.

“In our study, we found an inverse association of intake of colas with 25(OH)D concentrations and also a non-significant negative correlation between intake of other carbonated beverages and 25(OH)D concentrations,” the researchers concluded.

The researchers call for studies of longer duration to help clarify the relationship between vitamin D levels and sugar-sweetened beverages.
