The suspected connection between the MMR vaccine and Autism has come under fierce debate, and reports detail an allegedly complaint by a CDC whistleblower William Thompson that the medicine was given the green light in a fraudulent cover-up of neurological side effects.
Activist Post claims that Thompson co-authored the study which concluded that there were ‘no significant associations’ with neurodevelopment regression and the treatment for measles, mumps and rubella. But Thompson allegedly admitted to American bioengineer Dr. Brian Hooker and British medical researcher Dr. Andrew Wakefield – responsible for a discredited 1998 report on Autism and the MMR vaccine - in a recorded telephone conversation that the experiment report was fraudulent and that he and his co-authors had covered up the Autism link to the vaccine and systematically withheld data from the public that did not reflect their desired statistics.
Thompson is quoted to have said, “The effect [Austism] is where you would think it would happen. It is with kids without other conditions. I’m just looking at this and I’m like ‘Oh my God… I cannot believe we did what we did. It’s all there… I have handwritten notes”.
"It’s probably the lowest point in my career that I went along with that paper and I also paid a huge price for it because I became delusional".
The former CDC senior scientist also told Congress according to a recorded call audio posted by Collective Evolution, “The CDC research 10 years behind because it has not been transparent. We’ve missed 10 years of research because the CDC is so paralysed right now by anything related to autism. Really what we need is for Congress to come in a say ‘give us the data”.
“My boss is asking me to lie. I basically have stopped lying”.
And in an open letter to former CDC head Dr. Julie Gerberding, posted on Natural News, Thompson reportedly explained, "I will have to present several problematic results relating to statistical associations between the receipt of MMR vaccine and autism. I have been told by you have suggested that the science speak for itself. In general I agree with that statement, the science also needs advocates who can get the real scientific message out to the public".
Dr. Andrew Wakefield has spoken out about the MMR vaccine causing neurological side effects
The agenda and cover-up of crucial side effects relating to the MMR vaccine could spark moral panic, and although reported previously on CNN citizen journalism platform iReport (although later censored) and by other mainstream media outlets deeming such conclusions as bogus – particularly by Wakefield in the late 90s, revelations would result in a heavy backlash against medical organisations and the governments that regulate them.
The controversial debate was reignited in 2012 when an angry Italian parents filed a lawsuit against the country’s Ministry of Health when her son developed autism, now unable to speak and continuing to have great difficulty at school, after being administered the vaccine.
The Daily Mail reports that Antonella and Maurizio Bocca were awarded £140,000 and also plan civil action against the Italian government that could mean they could receive another £800,000 in damages, as they believe their son Valentino developed the neurological disorder due to the vaccine.
“But, of course, the money will never bring back the perfect and beautiful child of 15 months that we had before the doctors gave him the inoculation”, said Antonella. “We have a different Valentino today. We love him just as much, but our lives will never be the same again”.
Maurizio added, “When we mentioned our suspicions about the MMR jab and how Valentino had been an ordinary happy little boy until he had it, these medical people looked at us as if we were crazy”.
The court ruling could have profound implications worldwide and in Britain, where one in 64 children is on the Autistic Spectrum and cases are still soaring. In Britain, the medical cocktail is used as a routine inoculation by the NHS and Department of Health from an early age, but many have warned that the government should do more to analyse the effects of vaccinations.
Lawyer Mr Ventaloro explained, “This is very significant for Britain which uses, and has used, an MMR vaccine with the same components as the one given to Valentino”.
“It is wrong for governments and their health authorities to exert strong pressure on parents to take children for the MMR jab while ignoring that this vaccine can cause autism and linked conditions”.
