Dr Brian Hooker has just published (August 2014) the study “Measles-mumps-rubella vaccination timing and autism among young African-American boys; a reanalysis of CDC data” in the journal Translational Neurodegeneration that shows several very disturbing things:
– the CDC manipulated the data to remove the significance known that African-American boys were 3.4 times (340%) more likely to develop autism if they got the MMR before age 3 than if they got it after age 3.
– The CDC knew of this data since 2003 but chose to cover it up
– The flawed study with manipulated data has been quoted for a decade as proof that the MMR is not linked with autism when it actually proved the link between MMR and autism.
I am convinced that similar results would be found for all races and children if more studies were done.
