In February of this year, through a Freedom of Information request, Dr. Brian Hooker finally obtained long-awaited data from the Centers for Disease Control proving the connection between the mercury-based preservative thimerosal in vaccines. According to Hooker, the data on over four hundred thousand infants born between 1991 and 1997, which were analyzed by CDC epidemiologist Thomas Verstraeten, MD, “proved unequivocally that in 2000, CDC officials were informed internally of the very high risk of autism, nonorganic sleep disorder and speech disorder associated with thimerosal exposure.” The CDC still maintains that there is “no relationship between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism rates in children” (PRWeb, February 19 2014).

The only reference cited in this (PRWeb) does not bring up the study that corroborates the link between thimerosal and autism. Could you link to the source provided by Dr. Brian Hooker or the article that references his acquisition and findings of the CDC study? There are many out there who will see this as unsubstantiated with this omission. If the science supports it, the finding needs to be brought to the public. This is a hot-button topic whose dogma cannot be confronted without reliable, provable science, one way or the other.
Greg Carr says
The actual study shows no relation. Try fact checking yourself. You tarnish the reputation of the WAPF by publishing this type of naïve nonsense.
And I love Weston Price’s research, but this is just sad.

Sorry, but the link was neither proven nor covered up by anyone.
ITALIAN COURTS RULE: VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM
In September 2014, an Italian court in Milan awarded compensation to a boy who became autistic after receiving a shot containing six vaccines. Reported widely in the Italian press, the U.S. press ignored it completely. The court concluded that the child more likely than not suffered autism and brain damage because of mercury and aluminum in the vaccine “in concentrations exceeding the maximum recommended levels for infants weighing only a few kilograms.” A key document in the case was a confidential GlaxoSmithKline report, now available on the Internet, which reported five cases of autism caused by the vaccine in clinical trials https://autismoevaccini.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/vaccin-dc3a9cc3a8s.pdf
As in the U.S., the company will not pay out any money—compensation will come from the Italian government.
