Indicted Researcher Poul Thorsen: Autism Speaks' Original Trailblazer

Is Autism Speaks Giving Poul Thorsen the Old Tom Sawyer Treatment?

Huck-Finn-Whitewashing-Fence Ginger Taylor posted an interesting entry at Adventures in Autism called Autism Speaks is Scrubbing Their Ties to Poul Thorsen From Their Web Site. Here's a preview. Pop over to AinA to read the rest and comment.  Thanks to our commenter who took me back to tenth grade, of course it was Tom Sawyer who had to paint the fence, Huck's good friend.

In 2008, Autism Speaks reported on their epidemiology grants on their web site. They let supporters know that they were funding a one million dollar international autism registry with CDC and several international researchers including:

"Poul Thorsen, MD, PhD, University of Aarhus, Denmark and Emory University, USA.

You can find that information on the AS web site here. Or rather you used to be able to find it there. That sentence is now missing from the page. But that is what the page said on October 21, 2009. Check it out in the Wayback Machine.



Poul Thorsen has been charged with 13 counts of wire fraud and nine counts of money laundering; a federal grand jury alleges that Thorsen stole over $1 million from autism research funding between February 2004 and June 2008.

Lyme disease has been linked to Autism since it can be transmitted from mother to child. There has been success in treating children with antibiotics to kill lyme bacteria. Read the Autism-Lyme Connection. The reason vaccines are so dangerous for lyme compromised children is their immune system can't respond to the vaccine which causes their lyme symptoms to activate.


Thanks again to Ginger Taylor for compiling all this information on Thorsen.

Thank you also for today's notice on the OC Register correction:


CDC control Offit or does Offit for Profit control the CDC.

Either way when Thorsen blurts the truth out it will be very interesting.

Great article again ,which you wont find on the front page of any of the National Newspapers,shame on them .

Mr. Clemons - I stand corrected! I just think of the two boys together and Huck Finn came out first. Thanks! KIM

Ummm, it was Tom Sawyer that duped others into white washing the fence for him. Huck Finn ran off with Jim.

In the good old days .. it had been reported the CIA routinely re-examined original photographs of high level Russian officials attending various State events .. to identify which official's image had been "air brushed" from State "historical" photos making it appear he was not present when the original photo was taken.

To the CIA .. the removal of the photo indicated that former official had somehow fallen suspect and was no longer a member of the party.

It seems AS has "air brushed" Thorsen from their historical records as easily .. and .. for the same embarrassing reasons .. as did the KGB.
