“Whistleblower says CDC knew in 2003 of higher autism rate among African-American boys receiving MMR shot earlier than 36 months.
A top research scientist working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a key role in helping Dr. Brian Hooker of the Focus Autism Foundation uncover data manipulation by the CDC that obscured a higher incidence of autism in African-American boys. The whistleblower came to the attention of Hooker, a PhD in biochemical engineering, after he had made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for original data on the DeStefano et al MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and autism study. Dr. Hooker’s study, published August 8 in the peer-reviewed scientific journal, Translational Neurodegeneration, shows that African-American boys receiving their first MMR vaccine before 36 months are 3.4 times more likely to develop autism vs. after 36 months.” Read full report at Age of Autism.
