OPEN LETTER TO U.S. CONGRESSWOMAN BRENDA L. LAWRENCE OF MICHIGAN’S 14TH DISTRICT FROM DAVID BROWNSTEIN, MD.
Dear Representative Lawrence,
I have tried to contact your office by email and phone without success. I am a board-certified physician who practices in your district—West Bloomfield, MI.
I am concerned about the problems at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. One year ago today, a CDC senior scientist whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, came forward and admitted that crucial data was altered in an important 2004 CDC scientific paper that found no correlation with the MMR vaccine and autism. Dr. Thompson stated that his superiors pressured him to alter the data in this paper to hide the association between the MMR vaccine and autism.
The unaltered data showed a 240% increase risk in autism in African American male boys who were given the vaccine before 36 months of age. Furthermore, the study found that there was a 69% increase in autism in any male child given the vaccine before 36 months of age. Incredibly, the 2004 published paper omitted that data.
Dr. Thompson states that he has the original data and the information that indicates that his superiors wanted the data altered. In fact, Dr. Thompson claims that his superiors ordered him and his fellow authors to throw the incriminating evidence into a garbage can.
Rep. Lawrence, if this is true, tens of thousands of our youth were subjected to a potentially dangerous vaccine because of malfeasance from the CDC. It is well known that African American boys are more affected by autism than any other children’s group. It is very upsetting to think about how many African American boys (and other children) have been given this vaccine over the last 10 years--if it was known to cause autism.
Today marks one year to the date that Dr. Thompson admitted in a taped confession that the CDC covered up crucial vaccine data. To date, we have heard nothing from the CDC. Nothing from Congress. And little from the media.
It is time to have full hearings on this matter. If Dr. Thompson’s story is true, we need to know. I have seen countless parents who have told me the same story: “My child was well until he/she received a vaccine and he/she regressed physically, emotionally and mentally within hours to days from that injection.”
This is not an indictment on all vaccines. In fact, vaccines are safe for the majority who receive them. However, it is important for all of us to know if there is a link between vaccinations and autism. How can a parent make a competent medical decision for their child if they don’t have all the information available to them?
We need your help and your voice. It is time for the truth to come out.
I look forward to hearing from you,
David Brownstein, M.D.
