One reason that topics like dangerous vaccines do not get a lot of publicity is because the government is often willing to look the other way. Big Pharma’s reach is great, but it is about to find a very powerful opponent in the form of Tennessee congressman Dr. Mark Green.
Dr. Green is a physician who once ran a healthcare company, and he also has experience serving as an emergency army doctor in the military operation that saw the capture of Saddam Hussein. Needless to say, he has plenty of experience and knowledge on the topic of vaccines.
Speaking to constituents, he said that vaccines could be causing autism. Moreover, he said that he believes the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has “fraudulently managed” data related to vaccines.
He made the remarks at a town hall meeting in response to a question from a woman in the audience who had a young adult suffering from autism. These weren’t just empty comments intended to appease a constituent; he even said that he is prepared to defend his concerns over vaccine safety to the authorities.
He stated: “Let me say this about autism. I have committed to people in my community, up in Montgomery County, to stand on the CDC’s desk and get the real data on vaccines. Because there is some concern that the rise in autism is the result of the preservatives that are in our vaccines.”
“As a physician, I can make that argument and I can look at it academically and make the argument against the CDC, if they really want to engage me on it.”
He also said that taking a stand against the CDC’s possible withholding of vaccine research information would be a priority once he takes office.
Although he was quick to clarify that his own children are vaccinated, he believes that more research is needed – and quickly. He pointed out that autism rates have been climbing alongside vaccine numbers.
Indeed, autism cases are skyrocketing in the U.S., rising by 30,000 percent since the early ‘80s. Children who adhere to the CDC’s recommendations will get 70 doses of 16 vaccines, a figure that has nearly quadrupled since that time. These days, one out of every 36 children aged 3 to 17 are autistic.
While many doctors and the CDC insist that there is nothing to worry about, countless parents are telling a different tale. If vaccines are so safe, why is it that the government has already paid out nearly $4 billion in vaccine injury claims, including to autistic children who were damaged by vaccines? Why did they need to set up a vaccine injury claim court in the first place if there is nothing to worry about?
CDC coverup has already been exposed – is there more to the story?
Dr. Green also mentioned concerns raised by Florida Rep. Bill Posey and others that the CDC has been covering up a potential link between childhood vaccines and autism.
A senior epidemiologist from the CDC, Dr. William Thompson, along with the team of researchers working with him, uncovered a strong association between autism and vaccines in 2004, but their bosses instructed them to change the study’s parameters in a way that would make the association disappear. That way, the CDC would have nothing to report to the public.
Dr. Thompson came forward in 2014 with the previously buried data, which showed a statistically significant correlation between autism and the MMR vaccine in African-American boys in particular. His statement said that the co-authors then scheduled a meeting in which the documents related to that study would be destroyed.
He relayed how they met with a big garbage can and filled it with all the hard-copy documents they felt they should discard. However, he was concerned about the legality of it, so he took the precaution of keeping some hard copies in his office, along with computer files related to the case. Dr. Thompson was later given immunity from the Obama government.
That is just one of the cases that we know about, and it seems likely that there are plenty of other cover-ups that have not seen the light of day surrounding this very concerning issue. Vaccines are risky, and people deserve to know what can happen to them or their children if they get one so they can make an informed decision.
Dr. Green’s willingness to call the CDC out on its handling of vaccines and his interest in investigating the link between autism and vaccines further is very admirable. Although you might not agree with his stances on other topics, it’s refreshing to see someone who isn’t afraid to go against the status quo to protect children’s health and well-being, and one can only hope it will lead to some real change. Green will be sworn in to the U.S. House of Representatives on January 3, taking the seat of Marsha Blackburn, who is headed for the Senate.
