CDC covered-up strong MMR-autism link in African American boys.

March 13, 2015

A report released by Dr. Hooker to CBS News has revealed that an informant from the CDC involved in the DeStefano et al study first published in the Journal Pediatrics and widely used by the CDC and other public health organizations to dismiss the link between vaccines and autism was subjected to widespread manipulation of scientific data.

Dr. Hooker explained that the data manipulation concealed a statistically significant relationship between the age that MMR vaccine was first given and the incidence of autism among African-American boys.

Data was gathered on 2,583 children living in Atlanta Georgia between 1986 and 1993.

Introducing criteria into the analysis that sharply reduced cohort size, eliminated the statistical power of the findings, which negated the presence of a strong MMR-autism link in African American boys.

Dr. Hooker worked closely with the CDC whistleblower, and viewed highly sensitive documents related to the study, which he relayed to U.S. Representative Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Both CDC documents, as well as discussions that Hooker had with the whistleblower revealed both widespread manipulation of the scientific data as well as top-down pressure on CDC scientists to support the false and fraudulent statements about vaccine safety to the public in order to support the government`s policies on mandating their use.

The journal Pediatrics also happens to receive financial support from vaccine makers via advertising and direct donations.

Dr. Hooker also stated that the CDC knew about the relationship between the age of first MMR vaccine and the incidence of autism in African-American boys as early as 2003, but chose to cover it up.

He added, “The exclusion is reminiscent of tactics historically used to deprive African-Americans of the vote by requiring valid birth certificates.”

Dr. Hooker concluded further study is needed to determine why this specific effect (3.4-fold increase when MMR is administered prior to 36 months) is seen exclusively in African-American males, and determine whether delaying the first MMR vaccination should be advised for this population. A link between the MMR vaccine and autism has already been conceded in cases compensated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
