August 25, 2014—the CDC publishes a press release defending its 2004 study on autism.
August 27, 2014—CDC whistleblower publicly admits he and his co-authors cooked that study and committed fraud.
On August 25th, the CDC issued a press release, “Statement Regarding 2004 Pediatrics [study],…”
The CDC was referring to the 2004 study whistleblower William Thompson co-authored, the study he admitted was fraudulent, the study he and his co-authors slanted to bury the connection between the MMR vaccine and autism.
Thompson went public with his confession on August 27th, two days after the CDC posted its press release. So the CDC knew or strongly suspected Thompson was going to go public, and they wanted to head him off at the pass and do a bit of damage control.
Hence, the August 25th CDC press release, which of course tried to defend the scientific validity of the 2004 study.
Why? Thompson wanted to smooth the waters, keep his job at the CDC, and personally avoid the nasty consequences that would flow from springing a complete surprise on his employers.
The CDC’s August 25th press release contains language specifically directed at what Thompson would allude to, two days later:
The subset of black male babies who showed a much higher risk of autism after receiving the MMR vaccine.
Data on this group, Thompson would confess, was omitted from the study.
Here is the key CDC quote of August 25:
Access to the information on the birth certificates [of children in the study] allowed researchers to assess more complete information on race as well as other important characteristics, including possible risk factors for autism such as the child’s birth weight, mother’s age, and education. This information was not available for the children without birth certificates; hence CDC study did not present data by race on black, white, or other race children from the whole study sample. It presented the results on black and white/other race children from the group with birth certificates.
Translation: The authors of the study did a complete analysis of vaccinated children and their risk of autism, including children without birth certificates…and then much later said, “Oops, guess what? We just realized there are some kids without birth certificates. We’ll have to eliminate them from the study.”
Believe that and I have condos for sale on Neptune.
But there’s more. These “kids without birth certificates,” who were dropped from the study, miraculously and accidentally happened to be the ones who showed a much higher risk of autism.
Believe that and I’ll sell you Neptune.
