CDC whistleblower revealed: William Thompson

(Note: All posts related to this story are archived here under #Vaccinegate.)

This is a quick one. The Autism Media Channel has posted a short video in which the whistleblower is named: William W. Thompson, PhD. (AMC’s documentary video is here on — entitled “CDC Whistleblower revealed”).

He was in fact one of the authors of the 2004 De Stefano study that has been accused of hiding true data linking the MMR vaccine to autism.

Thompson once worked for Merck.

Questions abound. Does Thompson know his name has been released? Was it done with his permission? Is he going come forward and make a statement?

    Thimerosal has been used as a preservative in vaccines since the 1930s. It is 49.6% mercury by weight and is metabolized into ethyl mercury and thiosalicylate.1 In 1999, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimated that infants who were immunized according to the recommended schedule could receive amounts of mercury exceeding the limits set by the Environmental Protection Agency for exposure to methyl mercury.2 As a precautionary measure, the Public Health Service and the American Academy of Pediatrics urged vaccine manufacturers to remove thimerosal from all infant vaccines as soon as was practical and recommended that studies be carried out to understand better the risks associated with mercury exposure from thimerosal-containing vaccines.3 In response, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) performed an analysis using computerized databases from three large health maintenance organizations (HMOs).4 Increasing exposure to mercury was associated with a greater likelihood of tics in one HMO population and language delay in another; in the third HMO, no significant associations were found.

    Our study was designed to assess more rigorously the relationship between mercury exposure from thimerosal and neuropsychological functioning in a manner similar to that of previous studies of prenatal exposure to methyl mercury.5,6 Our study improved on previous thimerosal studies by enrolling children on the basis of thimerosal exposure, independent of health status; prospectively assessing neuropsychological functioning independently of exposure and health care–seeking behavior; and collecting extensive information on potential confounders, including medical history and socioeconomic and educational factors that could influence a child’s health and development.

    Per Autism Media Channel’s video (, here is the name and link to the study that was alleged to be fudged:

    Age at first measles-mumps-rubella vaccination in children with autism and school-matched control subjects: a population-based study in metropolitan atlanta. (2004 Feb;113(2):259-66)

    This all sounds like the cigarette wistleblower who was featured on lying “sixty minutes” all very mainstream, they even made a movie about it starring Russel Crowe. It all broke open right when big tobacco wanted to move on to big pharma. They seem to want to get rid of that secret court where a person can sue for damages in secret. They’ll probably come out and put black box warnings on the boxes, and then you cannot sue.

    My hunch is they have something cooked up and ready to roll out. I would be skeptical about this “whistleblower.” At least for now.
