Study on the MMR Vaccine And Its Link to Autism May Have Been Manipulated

It might be still a bit early to know the truth behind these reports, nevertheless, recent discoveries may force experts to question how certain federal agents handled the investigation into certain vaccines.

According to recent reports published by news organizations, a top researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may have kept an important information concerning the MMR vaccine from the public, which is now being disclosed thanks to a Freedom of Information Act request put forward by a doctor who interested in a study that may have demonstrated the link between autism and the vaccine. The request was associated with data on a study carried out by the agency on autism.

The whistleblower has reportedly indicated that the scientific data, which was in the hands of researchers act the CDC may have been kept secret over its results. The whistleblower has made the case that the link between the MMR vaccine and later autism diagnosis among African American males may have been manipulated by the agency.

According to the documents made available through the FOIA request examined data from 2003. The results show that then, autism had increased 340% among African American boys who had been exposed to the MMR vaccine, which happened to be discovered then. The reports show that the the facts were kept hidden by pressure that researchers may have allegedly suffered from more senior CDC officials.

The data may suggest that the results required the entire removal of the particular population from the results of the study so that the link was kept under wraps.

According to the reports, the CDC was actively aware of the link between MMR vaccination and the incidence of autism in African American boys. Some believe that this could also explain why the agency is so slow to investigate how autism is linked to other vaccines and other medication. At least other nine studies carried out or cited by the agency as evidence that multiple vaccines have been linked to autism.

The study in question was published by the Journal of Pediatrics in 2004. At this point, many experts are calling for further studies in order to determine whether the original data can be trusted, especially after the FOIA request was put forward and further details were disclosed.
