CDC's Vaccine Safety Research is Exposed as Flawed and Falsified in Peer-Reviewed Scientific Journal

CdclogoWATCHUNG, N.J., June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Just months after U.S. Congressman Bill Posey compared the Center for Disease Control (CDC)'s vaccine safety studies to the SEC's Bernie Madoff scandal, malfeasance in the CDC's studies of thimerosal-containing vaccines has, for the first time, been documented in peer-reviewed scientific literature. While the CDC states on its website that "low doses of thimerosal in vaccines do not cause harm, and are only associated with minor local injection site reactions like redness and swelling at the injection site," the journal BioMed Research International now provides direct evidence that the CDC's safety assurances about the mercury-containing preservative are not fact-based, according to the article's lead author, Brian Hooker, PhD.

The paper opens by citing over 165 studies that have found Thimerosal to be harmful, including 16 studies that had reported outcomes in human infants and children of death, acrodynia, poisoning, allergic reaction, malformations, auto-immune reaction, Well's syndrome, developmental delay and neurodevelopmental disorders including tics, speech delay, language delay, ADHD and autism. These findings by multiple independent research groups over the past 75+ years have consistently found thimerosal to be harmful. "Substantial scientific evidence exists and has existed for many years that the vaccine ingredient thimerosal is a developmental neurotoxin" says George Lucier, former Associate Director of the National Toxicology Program.

Studies showing harm from thimerosal sharply contradict published outcomes of six CDC coauthored and sponsored papers – the very studies that CDC relies upon to declare that thimerosal is "safe" for use in infant and maternal vaccines. Dr. Hooker, biochemist and vaccine industry watchdog, said of the six CDC studies, "Each of these papers is fatally flawed from a statistics standpoint and several of the papers represent issues of scientific malfeasance.  For example, important data showing a relationship between thimerosal exposure and autism are withheld from three of the publications (Price et al. 2010, Verstraeten et al. 2003 and Madsen et al. 2003).  This type of cherry-picking of data by the CDC in order to change the results of important research studies to support flawed and dangerous vaccination policies should not be tolerated."  

Dr. Boyd Haley, international expert in mercury toxicity and a co-author of the recently published paper said "There is no doubt that authorities in the CDC have initiated and participated in a cover-up of vaccine-induced damage from thimerosal to our children----and this I consider criminal." The paper, "Methodological Issues and Evidence of Malfeasance in Research Purporting to Show Thimerosal in Vaccines is Safe," was published on June 6 and contains eight pages of evidence that the CDC has had knowledge of the vaccine preservative's neurological risks, yet continues to cover them up.

The paper concludes, "five of the publications examined in this review were directly commissioned by the CDC, raising the possible issue of conflict of interests or research bias, since vaccine promotion is a central mission of the CDC. Conceivably, if serious neurological disorders are found to be related to Thimerosal in vaccines, such findings could possibly be viewed as damaging to the vaccine program."

Dr. Hooker has submitted over 100 FOIA requests to the CDC over the past 10 years and has amassed thousands of pages of documents showing malfeasance in the CDC's vaccine safety program.  Hooker revealed that one CDC document quoted a top official instructing CDC employees to "Review all correspondences and documents to see if there is 'foreseeable harm' to the agency if they were released" so the documents could be redacted by CDC attorneys prior to release.

Barry Segal, founder of the Focus Autism Foundation and former entrepreneur whose company sales peaked near $2 billion said, "We are in the process of exposing what may be the biggest federal scandal ever with immense damage to our economy and our people, especially our children who are the future of our country. Their health has been compromised by mercury in vaccines. We need Congress to take action now. Thimerosal must be banned."

A more effective vaccine preservative "2PE" has replaced thimerosal in many other vaccines and possesses a much better safety profile according to Dr. Hooker.

Regarding the reference in an earlier post to Claire McCaskill going after Dr. Oz, I also wondered at her extreme agitation about something as apparently harmless as green coffee supplements.

Anyway, I was watching Dr. Oz the other day and at the end of the program he suggested that people eat organic and avoid GMOs. Ah, maybe the light dawns. McCaskill takes money from Monsanto.

I think that we have some strategies we can adopt:

1) We can bring our vaccine injured children, with reams of medical records if we have them, to our state representatives. We can meet with them and put a face and a family on vaccine damage. If enough of us do this,they will be forced to realize 1) vaccines damage does happen and it causes family catastrophe 2) we are reasonable, bright people 3) we are out there in force 4) we are politically active 5) our motives are heroic, the motive to keep this from happening to anyone else.

Those lying about us have motives too. But their motives are to protect themselves from reality at best and financial lost at worst. Their dreams are relating to their paychecks or to their need to avoid the guilt of what they have done by their denial. If they were to face what their bizarre insistence that it is safe to inject neurotoxins into humans has caused, their nightmares would be a Silent Scream, which is what they have done to life after life, family after family, some of our dreams ended in miscarriage, some ended in SIDS, some altered by autism, some destroyed at the end, by alzheimers. I pray every night that some of these people will see the light and become whistle blowers, telling the press what they know.

2) Apparently, when a press outlet or public figure says or writes the 'heresy' that "Vaccines could harm a subset of children" they get threatened by some creeps saying " we will blame you if any child gets ill from a vaccine preventable disease. "

What if every time we see an article that says vaccines are totally safe and those who challenge them are ___ (fill in the blank) we write, call, etc, and say "the next time there is death or injury from vaccines because someone believed your story saying there is no such thing as vaccine injury--DESPITE package inserts that admit there are---and this person continues to vaccinate not recognizing side effects-- because YOUR STORY LIED - you will be targeted and exposed for your fraudulent coverage. In fact, I wonder if they could sue you"

--Lawyers? could they ? suppose a parent watched Katie Courics coverage on Gardisil. Her child reacts badly to the first shot. But because they slammed Katie, she ignores it and thinks "No it couldn't be the Gardisil" and despite the warning side effect the child gets another shot Her daughter then dies or is crippled. Can they sue the network for forcing Katie to retract and misrpreprenting the safety of Gardisil?

Every time your doctor asks you to get a shot for your parent or child or self, ask for the actual package insert. The one with the small print. Then read it, mention the freaky facts in it --like it says "not tested on pregnant women" or "not tested with other vaccines" , say you don't want the shot, but take the insert home with you. Post it on your Facebook page with highlights to the vaccine injury and side effects. In fact, right now, open up a People and go to page 30. Opposite page 30 is the gardisil vaccine ad. On the back it lists some mind boggling contraindications and side effects. Highlight those and post to your Facebook, mail to your state rep or congressman, mail to any journalist or tv doctors who lies about the side effects, LETS START GRASS ROOTS FIGHTING LIES WITH FACTS. It's obvious.

Excellent comments, Everyone! Keep 'em coming!

Taximom5, It is a bit baffling why Dr. Hooker (if he was not misquoted) would say 2PE seemed to have a "safer" profile than thimerosal. From the Post:

"A more effective vaccine preservative "2PE" has replaced thimerosal in many other vaccines and possesses a much better safety profile according to Dr. Hooker."

It's like saying cyanide is safer than arsenic to put in vaccines!

For me, there has never been any doubt as to the dangers of mercury. It was one of the first pieces of information I gained in my study of homeopathy. And this is yet another reason we have always included heavy metal detoxification with virtually EVERYONE we work with.

The damage of mercury was documented by medical doctor-turned-homeopath Samuel Hahnemann, MD over 200 years ago. It has been replicated in millions of cases worldwide since then - think "mad hatter's disease," Pinks disease and autism spectrum disorders, to name a few. I'd even add "mad dentist's disease" having seen a number of dentists who have clearly suffered from mercury poisoning from placement or removal of amalgam fillings.

Reading the homeopathic "proving" of mercury, mostly taken from doctor's notes who attended patients suffering with or dying from mercury poisoning, completely corroborates much "newer" and "more scientific" information as to the harm it does, the behaviors it brings on and the effects overall on the immune system.

I have found it ironic that most of my professional life as a homeopath has centered around vaccines that contained mercury - which was used as a medication for syphilis by conventional medicine in Hahnemann's day, and against which he railed because it more often made things worse, often leading to eventual (and miserable) death.

With multiple generations of damage from thimerosal in vaccines, we have created deep damage to the human genome that may take generations to correct, if it can be. Our autism spectrum kids - not to mention all of the childhood autoimmune disease sufferers - are but the canaries in the coal mine of human "medical science."

Thank you, A of A for tirelessly keeping the discussion alive and in the media. When the fox is in charge of the hen house, eventually the deepening pile of feathers can't be explained away outside of the fox. Eventually the weight of truth does conquer.


Why the HELL is 2PE even a consideration here?

Bob Moffitt,

You are exactly right in bringing up RICO racket laws against Health Agency leaders in NIH, CDC, et al., as they have knowingly brought death and misery to millions, via their knowingly continuation of toxic vaccines --- and they have done so to protect their own fat salaries, bonuses, and immense taxpayer Agency(s) funding.

These leaders are not just the butchers as I described in my earlier comment, they are indeed Gangsters, willingly directing their minions to cover up any truth against that threatens their dogma.

 Bob Moffitt

To anyone wondering what the priorities of our elected representatives in Washington DC are:

First having 50 Senators courageously sign a petition sent to the owner of the Washington Redskins team .. followed up by making speeches every day on the floor of the US Senate .. demanding the Washington Redskin change their name .. while at the same time exerting political pressure meant to goad the US Patent and Trade Commission to remove the team's "logo" for being "offensive" to some.

Trust them .. removing thimerosal will become a priority .. but .. the Washington Redskins name must go FIRST.

My prior comment was too brief. A follow-on comment about how wrong it would be to use the toxic preservative 2PE (phenoxyethanol) suggested as a vaccine preservative in place of thimerosal.

The chemical industry states (see my prior comment} 2PE is toxic to human health when exposed via "inhalation, ingestion, and dermal contact." They don't even mention or could conceive 2PE would be INJECTED, as has been done for many years in infant vaccines!

Yet, for many years, the CDC has listed that 2PE has been a preservative used in both the polio and DTaP child vaccines! INJECTED into infants at 2 months, 4 months, six months, and in further booster shots.

To repeat, the Chemical Industry doesn't even list 2PE as an INJECTED "hazard" to human health, because, it was simply unthinkable. Even more astounding, the unaccountable world of vaccine makers have cavalierly been for years mixing it into the polio and DTaP infant/child vaccines.

All one has to do is google "cdc vaccine excipients" and see the official CDC pdf document citing the employment of 2-phenoxyethanol. Calling CDC official and scientists unaccountable butchers is an understatement.


Let's not forget too, that while there is some acknowledgement of the need to remove thimerosol from vaccines in the first world, at the same time the first world has seen fit to export vaccines fully loaded with thimerosol to the third world.

for Louis

c'mon! Obviously diet supplements are a way more important topic for the senate or congress to be concerned about. Geez, thank God Senator McCaskill got onto that horrible problem (sarcasm dripping)

Louis Conte

How much longer will Congress do nothing while the very agency that's supposed to protect the health of Americans suppresses the damage caused by inecting a neurotoxin into children?

Hearings should be scheduled and these people need to be held to account for the largest mass poisoning in human history.

Jim Thompson

The FDA and CDC are seemingly accountable to no one. They continue, in the face of more evidence, to state that mercury exposure is safe. It is not safe!

The Public Health Service, the American Academy of Pediatrics and vaccine manufacturers agreed in 1999 that Thimerosal (1/2 mercury by weight) should be removed from vaccines as soon as possible. See http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/dockets/04p0349/04p-0349-ref0001-06-Tab-03-Concerns-Thimerosal-02-vol6.pdf .

And yet the removal of Thimerosal from vaccines has been “in a period of transition” for fifteen years. Children and pregnant women still get flu shots with mercury equivalent to a half cup of D009 mercury hazardous waste.

Please write your elected officials in Congress and demand that Thimerosal be taken out of flu vaccines.

I have great respect for Dr. Hooker and his relentless work exposing the hopelessly corrupt CDC. However, the comment that a vaccine preservative such as 2PE, as a substitute for thimerosal, could be injected into 6-month infants (or anybody) is horribly wrong! Here is the copied text from the Chemical Handbook concerning 2-PE (2-phenoxythanol):

Hazards Summary

The major hazards encountered in the use and handling of 2-phenoxyethanol stem from its toxicologic properties. Toxic by all routes (inhalation, ingestion, and dermal contact), exposure to this faintly aromatic, colorless, oily liquid may occur from its use as a fixative for cosmetics, perfumes, and soaps; as a bactericide and insect repellant; as a solvent for cellulose acetate,dyes, stamp pad, ball point, and specialty inks; as a chemical intermediate for carboxylic acid esters (eg, acrylate, maleate) and polymers (eg, formaldehyde, melamine); and as a preservative for human specimen used for dissection and demonstrations in anatomical studies. Effects from exposure may include eye irritation, headache, tremors, and CNS depression.

Let me repeat one phrase of the above paragraph: "Toxic by all routes"

 Bob Moffitt

This AoA article reports .. a paper, "Methodological Issues and Evidence of Malfeasance in Research Purporting to Show Thimerosal in Vaccines is Safe," was published on June 6 and contains EIGHT PAGES of evidence that the CDC has had knowledge of the vaccine preservative's neurological risks, yet continues to cover them up."

On October 15, 1970, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (18 U.S.C. §§ 1961–1968), commonly referred to as the "RICO Act", became United States law. The RICO Act allowed law enforcement to charge a person or group of people with racketeering, defined as committing multiple violations of certain varieties within a ten-year period.

Sooo .. let's fantasize for a moment .. according to Wikipedia .. "a racket is a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a problem .. the potential problem may be caused by the same party (CDC?) that offers to solve it, although that fact may be concealed, with the specific intent to engender continual patronage for this party.

It appears to me .. and .. this where my fantasy ends .. in a just world .. the CDC could be prosecuted under RICO for engaging in a racket by "covering up knowledge of a vaccine preservative's neurological risks"?
