In 2004, Dr. William S. Thompson worked on a report for the CDC’s National Immunization Program. That report, which ran in the “Pediatrics” medical journal, came to the conclusion that there’s no link between vaccines and autism and that no racial group is more likely to be damaged by vaccines.
But Thompson said that he and other CDC scientists intentionally fudged the results, manipulating the pool of children they analyzed and
limiting the proper number of African-American children from
participating. The authors limited black children from showing up in the
results by excluding babies without a state of Georgia birth
Ran across this late last night, and wondered how this was going to shake out. At the least, if this is true, the CDC screwed with the data to get the results they wanted, which screws said results.
Worst: every anti-vaccination clown out there is going to be yelling "SEE! Their results are not to be trusted! There's something wrong with the vaccines!"
Congratulations again, CDC: showed yourselves untrustworthy and helped a bad cause.
