Senior CDC scientist Dr. William Thompson was recorded this year admitting that biologic plausibility exists indicating that Thimerosal from vaccines leads to autism-like features in children:

"You know, in the United States the only vaccine it's still in is for pregnant women. I can say confidently, I do think thimerosal causes tics. So, I don't know why they still give it to pregnant women. Like, that's the last person I would give mercury to. 'Thimerosal from vaccines cause tics...

Statement of William W. Thompson, Ph.D., Regarding the 2004 Article Examining the Possibility of a Relationship Between MMR Vaccine and Autism
"I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism."

"[I]t is likely that cognitive deficits afflict some individuals who have been injured by the Gardasil vaccine, and these have been documented. [8]"

The Evidence Shows that Vaccines Cause “Mental Retardation”

"During the 2010 pertussis epidemic in California, there was considerable concern in the press and in public health communications about the possible contribution of vaccine failures to the problem.1,2"

"As hard as corporate-biased writers and editors try, they cannot control readers’ skepticism about who determines what information and research constitutes science bedrock.

"Despite the high-sounding defensive rhetoric of so-called “science writers,” one cannot always believe what one reads. Cognitive dissonance is inevitable when readers discover vaccine and autism research that:
• excludes affected populations,
• uses inappropriate placebos,
• leverages...

Posted on 08/22/13 at 10:41 am in response to Addiction and mental illness: Help MinnPost shine a light

Until paradoxical medical causes of mental illness are openly investigated, people will continue to suffer and be given profit-driven psych meds that mask and/or worsen symptoms.
- Mercury from tooth fillings can lead to clinical depression.
- Aluminum from vaccines can cause long-term brain inflammation.

Conversely industry-funded studies on toxicology and pharmacokinetics of neurotoxins used in medical treatments insist these metals are safe for injection,...

“Vaccines’ Benefits Outweigh Risks” Implies Children Injured by Vaccines are Expendable

Online comments by vaccine injury denialists...

If only a small nugget of that supercilious outrage about public health were expressed toward vaccine developers endangering children -- who have:
- falsified mumps efficacy research (Merck: East Pennsylvania Civil Action 10 4374)
- stolen +$1 million from the CDC and top the OIG Most Wanted list (Poul Thorsen)
- falsified mercury toxicity research (Thomas Verstraeten, et al.)
- published an antigen study loaded with selection bias (Frank DeStefano et al.)

Posted on 04/16/13 at 12:59 pm in response to Vaccine fear-mongering has muffled legitimate research on vaccine safety

Consumers would be less skeptical of vaccination if the CDC, physicians and industry would stop treating vaccine injury victims like roadkill. Would journalists let Toyota get away with sudden acceleration problems in "just a small minority" of its vehicles?

MinnPost and other MSM promote investigation into the U of M's Markingson research abuse case, yet these same reporters have a huge blind spot when it comes to vaccine research. Journalists seem to feel that a percentage of...
