No matter what you believe in regards to vaccines the idea of govt scientists destroying evidence about vaccines injuring children is bone chilling. Share this article with friends and family regardless of whether they are pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine.

This is horrible; and I really hope it isn't just "the tip of the iceberg." Really hope there are more whistleblowers who will come forward to support this and inform us of other possible scandals.

Thanks Terry, I try to be careful on these things, appears a lot of people caught up in this.

This was reported in Eco Watch and they tend to do a careful review of everything as well. They are stating the story is true as of 1 day ago.

There is also a video on that website called Trace Amounts.....about sealed cases etc.

Video on the CDC Whistleblower who has publically came out

There are other websites backing up this story and one Snopes that debunks it. So again, I'll let the public be the one to choose for themselves.

Remember this article is not saying all cases of autism are caused by vaccines, but there appeared to be an increased risk for some boys receiving vaccines that were under 36 months of age.

if you don't wish to have your children vaccinated , I think the choice should be yours , but , if you don't then why would you bring your child around other children ?I guess I'd have a real problem if mine wasn't due for there shot yet and you brought your child around and mine caught something because of and died , sorry can't be too forgiving bout that . Thank You Dandelion .

I am with Terry - I have ALWAYS found Snopes reliable, well researched, and honest. One quote from Snopes is 'What got lost in the brouhaha over Dr. Thompson's "confession," allegations about a "cover-up" at the CDC, and threats of whistleblower lawsuits was what should have been the main point: Did collected data actually prove that the MMR vaccine produces a 340% increased risk of autism in African-American boys? The answer is no, it did not." You might also want to read here:
Please remember, there is so much overlap between vaccine conspiracy theorists and Dominionists, you always have to consider the possibility that these people WANT children to die to hasten The End Times.

I read what Robert Kennedy Jr. said about the trace amounts of mercury (thermisol or whatever it's called) a LONG time ago & wondered..but supposedly (trust us, we're Doctors) there isn't any in today's vaccines..wink, wink..Even IF vaccines do NOT cause Autism (I don't know & I don't even know if it matters any more) they most certainly can cause reactions. NOT being vaccinated CAN cause death, or other BAD result.
In Illinois, a child HAS to be vaccinated to go to public school. We still get some local epidemics from newly migrated people, home-schooled non-vaccers, etc. Plus, some children still get some diseases EVEN with vaccinations (I & my sisters had whooping cough, even though we'd been vaccinated!) so I see the need for vaccines to protect society & to lessen the severity of any one disease.
Our middle son is Autistic, all my kids got vaccinated & I do not think vaccines (by themselves) cause autism.
Autism is hard & sad, but it is not a death sentence. My cousin has 3 kids with CF..and had more kids after Knowing it - which I think is unthinkable..but I'm a tad judgmental..;)

Nobody should go without all their vaccinations, that only the flu vaccine be voluntary. There is no link between autism and vaccinations. 5 years ago A link was found connectiong Autism to the mother consuming Aspertame during pregnancy as well as a fungal infection at birth.

My husband and I have kept away for decades and depend upon natural antibiotics, germ, bacteria and super "bug" killers. I haven't had a flu in 30 years and get a mild cold about every 2 years, due to some new exotic introduction. The biggest aid is keeping the immune system at max and taking the anti-inflammatory Turmeric (Curcumin). If you buy an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory, that's the main ingredient. An organic mushroom formula is the best way to keep the immune system at max, and it has a myriad of other health benefits. Pure lavender oil kills super bugs, and you may ingest 2-4 drops once daily, as well as massage. Take Vits. C and D and a whole food multi-vit. plus minerals pill. Pro-biotics often do better than anti. Baking soda in a 8 oz. glass water keeps the system alkalai, and viruses can't live in that environment. On and on. Thanks Dandelion. Oh--My husband, who follows my advice, has not had colds or a flu in 4 decades. Just a light sniffle once every year or two that lasts for 2-3 days. Take Rhodiola, COQ10. We take just a few other supplements for eyes, energy. To each his own.

One more thing of interest. Beginning in the 1950's, when my parents first reluctantly decided it was best to try the first flu vaccine, my mother had a violent reaction to it, twice. The third year, she had to be rushed to the hospital with respiration failure, rash, heart palpitations. Her brothers both reacted the same way, only much milder. She was against my brother and I having it, but, as I recall, our dr. and the school were very adamant. We both had a bad, but milder reaction than our mother. My mother tried one more time, in the 1970's and it was a negative repeat, lasting for days. This has affected how I view flu shots, vaccinations. Vaccinations for some in my family, do not take, not even when re-administered. Mine did upon 2nd try. Perhaps we're mutants or perhaps it's some Native American blood on mother's side. I'm sure there are other families who have this issue.

This is an excerpt from the Snopes site on the validity of the accusations, there is a link for further reading on the subject at the bottom of the statement. Vaccination data were abstracted from immunization forms required for school entry, and records of children who were born in Georgia were linked to Georgia birth certificates for information on maternal and birth factors. Basically, no significant associations were found between the age cutoffs examined and the risk of autism. I note that, even in the "reanalysis" by Brian Hooker, there still isn't any such correlation for children who are not African American boys

So is Hooker’s result valid? Was there really a 3.36-fold increased risk for autism in African-American males who received MMR vaccination before the age of 36 months in this dataset? Hooker [performed] multiple subset analyses, which, of course, are prone to false positives. As we say, if you slice and dice the evidence more and more finely, eventually you will find apparent correlations that might or might not be real. In this case, I doubt Hooker's correlation is real.

There's no biologically plausible reason why there would be an effect observed in African-Americans but no other race and, more specifically than that, in African-American males. In the discussion, Hooker does a bunch of handwaving about lower vitamin D levels and the like in African American boys, but there really isn't a biologically plausible mechanism to account for his observation, suggesting that it's probably spurious. There are multiple other studies, many much larger than this one, that failed to find a correlation between MMR and autism.

What [Hooker] has done, apparently, is found grist for a perfect conspiracy theory to demonize the CDC, play the race card in a truly despicable fashion, and cast fear, uncertainty, and doubt about the CDC vaccination program, knowing that most of the white antivaccine activists who support [him] hate the CDC so much that they won't notice that even Hooker's reanalysis doesn’t support their belief that vaccines caused the autism in their children.

Thanks everyone for their input and the waters on this issue are really murky from information that supports both sides of the coin. I agree with Ros here, that a true Independent investigation needs to be done on this.

Too many time people have been assured of medications being helpful to them, then later on we find out that too many had actually caused heart conditions, stroke, and other conditions. The pills are finally removed from the markets so why is it that vaccines can't also cause issues? Or perhaps they don't.

Big Pharma in it's greed has a lot of the population skittish, because of other underhanded policies. Therefore an Independent study couldn't be done with backing by anyone who stands to make money from vaccines, this truly would have to be an out in the open study.

I hate to say this but something is not right here, Read: "" - And yes Snopes is a husband and wife team but so what? Read "about Snopes at the very bottom of the site "about us". There needs to be an Independent investigation into this. The Dr. who brought this to light is biased against vaccinations. We need a Neutral entity to get to the bottom of this.

Every kid should be required to have every vaccination before going to any school. I don't want to see Polio, smallpox, measles, rubella again. they were eradiated until some idiots started to avoid giving the vaccinations to their kids.. Now there are outbreaks in schools and deaths associated with those diseases.

Sheryl G (359)

The main point of this article is: was information being held back, trashed, and not allowed to come forward. If we are injecting into our children's bodies we best be darn sure that what is going in is truly safe.

While preventing all of the horrors that come from polio, smallpox etc. and I'm old enough to remember "before" polio shots, we also do need to assure the public that they are not inducing other potential serious health issues along with the vaccines.

I also never recalled any issue around the polio when given orally, and it was proven that mercury was in the shots. I don't recall any major issue with the smallpox vaccines, it only seems when there was an increase of shots given to children at extremely young ages did health issues begin to arise.

We need to know too many vaccines given at a time, too many too soon, as I know some Countries now are spacing them out and giving them a bit latter in age. What is in the vaccines, is our foods tainted with too much artificial this or that. Serious questions and we and our children deserve answers.

Thank you all for stopping by for your added information onto the topic. As the summary said, no matter what your stance is either pro or anti vaccine, I think it is a fair request by the public that a true Independent study be done.

Dandelion: " no matter what your stance is either pro or anti vaccine".

It's unfortunate that the issue is seen this way., as it makes it even more divisive. There are many people who are not opposed to vaccines per se, but don't like the sheer number of them at such a young age, and the fact they are often combined. Any comment from them and the shout goes up 'anti-vaxxers'!

This is what we should really be discussing - there are compromises we could make

I repeated what the article wrote.....this was one small section of a huge debate and issue concerning vaccines. I placed this on here as no matter what these studies are showing, good, bad or indifferent, throwing away or failing to present all research is wrong.

There have been other articles presented on C2 that are far more reaching than this one and certainly debate is still open in my mind, I know for some it is sealed shut in either direction. This article was one aspect of a larger debate.....thank you for pointing out I myself had always thought there was more of a full research team behind that website.

Hey, Dandelion, that wasn't a criticism of you, just pointing out how the discussion usually goes. We get nowhere if we focus only on our different opinions and how the other side is wrong.

Re Snopes - me too. I guess that is what we are expected to asume.

Exactly, It is a cache 22 situation, yes we need vaccines for childhood diseases that killed many in my generation as children growing up but somehow they have changed the vaccinations to do more than vaccinate. We never used to have all these numbers of autistic children. I never even heard that word until I was well into my twenties and had to look it up to see what it was. It sure makes one question the motives of their government.

Thank you so much for posting this. As you can see from the thread this is an extremely heated debate. There is actually plenty of data showing the risks of vaccinations. However the power of the pharmaceutical companies means that if you question them you are painted as a nutjob. If people are so certain of the pharmaceutical companies and their products they should not be afraid of an open conversation.
