(NaturalNews) In August 2014, it was revealed that senior Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientist William Thompson had been having numerous conversations with vaccine critic Brian Hooker in which Thompson noted that the data from one of his studies had been massaged prior to publication in order to conceal a link between the MMR vaccine and autism in black boys.
In a new book, Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing the Autism Research Fraud at the CDC, attorney Kevin Barry examines the content of ten months worth of conversations between Thompson and Hooker, which were recorded prior to September 2014.
Hooker is a bioengineer and a professor of biology and chemistry at Simpson University. He has spent 12 years using Freedom of Information Act requests to obtain data on studies the CDC has conducted on a possible link between vaccines and autism, and he has submitted many of his findings to Congress.
Omitted data shows autism link
According to Thompson, he was unaware that his conversations with Hooker were being recorded. After his name was outed as a CDC informant without his permission, he hired a law firm specializing in whistleblower protection and released a public statement through them.
“I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics,” the press statement reads. “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.”
Thompson notes that while he considers himself pro-vaccination, he believes that the CDC’s decision making and data analysis needs to be transparent.
“My concern has been the decision to omit relevant findings in a particular study for a particular sub- group for a particular vaccine,” his statement reads. “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 receipt of those vaccines.”
Among the revelations in the book is the repeated admission by Thompson to Hooker that the mercury-containing thimerosal, which has long been used as a preservative in vaccines and is still used in flu shots and adult-only vaccines, causes “tics.”
“I can say tics are four times more prevalent in kids with autism,” Thompson elaborates at one point. “There is biologic plausibility right now to say that thimerosal causes autism-like features.'”
The book also reveals more details about the data coverup that Thompson referenced in his August 2014 public statement. It reveals that because the data from that study was modified to show no link with autism, the controversy was rapidly declared settled. “Because the CDC researchers omitted significant data, the flow of research was diverted away from vaccination,” Barry writes.
Thompson claims that his studies were “watered down” and his data was “omitted.”
“The whole system is paralyzed right now,” he says of the CDC’s research into a vaccine-autism connection.
Barry’s book uses Thompson’s testimony to suggest that at best, the CDC is incompetent and misguided on this issue. At worst, to use Thompson’s word from the tapes, the agency is actually “crooked.”
Rates of autism have ballooned from about 1 in 10,000 in 1960 to an astonishing 1 in 68 today. Over the same time period, the number of vaccines on the childhood schedule has also dramatically expanded. Page 107 of Vaccine Whistleblower contains the 1983 and 2015 recommended vaccine schedules; the former has ten shots for three vaccines by age four, while the current schedule has 27 shots for more than 12 vaccines by age six.
