(NaturalNews) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been engaged in a massive campaign of deception concerning the alleged safety of the combination measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, also known as MMR. A top-level scientist from the agency, who recently came forward as an anonymous whistleblower, confessed that the CDC deliberately concealed data showing that MMR can cause autism, particularly in African American boys who are vaccinated before the age of three.
Speaking to Dr. Brian Hooker from the Focus Autism Foundation (FAF), the whistleblower reportedly filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking original data on a study that the CDC routinely cites as evidence of MMR’s safety. Dr. Hooker and the whistleblower crossed paths not long after, together uncovering a dirty little secret about this prominent study that was never disclosed to the public — that MMR is linked to a 340 percent increased risk of autism in black boys.
Publishing this bombshell in a recent issue of the peer-reviewed scientific journal Translational Neurodegeneration, Dr. Hooker discovered, with the guidance of the whistleblower, that MMR tests conducted on young, African American boys born between 1986 and 1993 were intentionally manipulated after the fact to cover up the link between MMR and autism. This manipulation involved excluding a significant percentage of the study’s participants from the final sample size.
“After data were gathered on 2,583 children living in Atlanta, Georgia who were born between 1986 and 1993, CDC researchers excluded children [who] did not have a valid State of Georgia birth certificate — reducing the sample size being studied by 41%,” explains an FAF press release. “[B]y introducing this arbitrary criteria into the analysis, the cohort size was sharply reduced, eliminating the statistical power of the findings and negating the strong MMR-autism link in African American boys.”
