CDC Hides Vaccine-Autism Links Again

You may recall an article I posted last year about Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s wonderful piece in Rolling Stone that exposed some of the horrible history behind the mercury-autism link to vaccines. Another activist organizations, including the Advocates for Children's Health Affected by Mercury, have uncovered more documents and e-mails that blame the CDC for asking the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to craft their findings so they ignore any connection between the presence of mercury-laden thimerosal in vaccines and the devastating effects of autism.

Based on closed-door meetings five years ago, a Harvard researcher and IOM committee chair told IOM study director Dr. Kathleen Stratton, "[CDC] wants us to declare, well, these things are pretty safe on a population basis," as well as "...we are not ever going to come down that [autism] is a true side effect."

Of course, all parties on the government's side disavow any bias or influence to get the results they wanted, specifically that the IOM study committee reached set conclusions that debunked any autism-mercury connection before they reviewed the facts. Activists also questioned the CDC's decision to limit the IOM's report to a handful of studies already planned or paid for by the federal agency that showed little evidence linking mercury to autism.

Sounds all too familiar, doesn't it?

If you have any doubt about the harm thimerosal can have on a child's health, I urge you to take a look at a pair of pictures I posted recently of a young boy before and after his vaccination for hepatitis B.

No question, pictures speak louder than words.
