Eminent CDC Sponsored Autism Vaccine Researcher Indicted for Fraud
According to CNBC, “Poul Thorsen, the principal coordinator of multiple studies funded by the CDC used to deny a vaccine/autism link was indicted April 13th on thirteen counts of fraud and nine counts of money-laundering. The charges relate to funding for work he conducted for the CDC which claimed to disprove associations between the mercury-based vaccine preservative, thimerosal, and increased rates of autism.” This was first reported by the consumer group, SafeMinds.
I remember when these studies came out. They came out in rapid-fire succession just after previously-released studies began to show there was a link between autism and mercury-preserved vaccines. I was not surprised that the Thorsen articles came out so fast as Big Pharma had to do something to quiet the growing complaints about mercury in vaccines.
Do I think that mercury-containing vaccines cause autism? Before I answer that, let me state a few points. I believe there is no justification for ever injecting in any living being the third most toxic element known to mankind. As the wise man Forrest Gump said, “Stupid is as stupid does.” What do you expect will happen when you inject a known neurotoxin, in large amounts, to a small baby?
I have no doubt that mercury toxicity, in large part from vaccines, is probably one factor responsible for the rapid rise of autism. Even if mercury is not one of the underlying causes of autism, common sense as well as biochemical sense would dictate that mercury exposure is not a good idea. In fact, mercury toxicity is a common problem in many of the patients that I see. However, in our toxic world, there are many other items we are exposed to on a daily basis that can also disrupt the normal neurological development in a newborn such as lead, arsenic, nickel, cadmium and bromine.
What can you do? Number one; don’t let anyone inject mercury in your body. Most of the flu vaccines still have mercury in them and will have for many many years; they should be avoided.(In developing countries the TT, the DaPT, the DT, the DPT, the Hep-B, the Hib, and many other multi dose vaccines have an atrocious amount of 0.25mcg to 0.50 mcg of the dreaded ethyl mercury, in EACH pediatric dose.)
Next, don’t let any dentist put a mercury filling in your mouth. Any dentist that still defends the use of mercury does not understand biochemistry and does not deserve your business.
Autism-study doctor facing grant probe
Accusations over funds stir those who reject that there is no vaccine link to the disorder.

A Danish scientist involved in two major studies that debunked any linkage of vaccines to autism is suspected of misappropriating $2 million in U.S. grants at his university in Denmark.
Poul Thorsen, a medical doctor and Ph.D., was an adjunct professor at the Drexel University School of Public Health for several months before resigning Tuesday.
On Jan. 22, Aarhus University said that it had uncovered a "considerable shortfall" in grant money from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a research program that Thorsen had directed. The university referred the matter to police, who are conducting an investigation.
