Critique of the 6 epidemiological studies used to exonerate thimerosal containing vaccines

Brian Hooker PhD

Six epidemiological studies have been used to “refute” the link between thimerosal and autism.  These are:

  1. “Thimerosal and the occurrence of autism: negative ecological evidence from Danish population-based data” by Kreesten Madsen et al. 2003, published in the journal Pediatrics
  2. “Autism and thimerosal-containing vaccines: lack of consistent evidence for an association” by Paul Stehr-Green et al., 2003, published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine
  3. “Association between thimerosal-containing vaccine and autism” by Anders Hviid et al., 2003, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association
  4. “Safety of thimerosal-containing vaccines: a two-phased study of computerized health maintenance organization databases” by Thomas Verstraeten et al., 2003, published in the journal Pediatrics
  5. Thimerosal exposure in infants and developmental disorders: a retrospective cohort study in the United kingdom does not support a causal association” by Nick Andrews et al., 2004, published in the journal Pediatrics
  6. “Prenatal and infant exposure to thimerosal from vaccines and immunoglobulins and risk of autism” by CS Price et al., 2010, published in the journal Pediatrics

Trine “Two Shoes” Tsouderos – Barrett’s Tokyo Rose…

The Desperation Level in the Quackpot camp has reached an all-time high. 

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

The Doctor’s Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case is so devastating to them that they are, without doubt, at a point similar to where the Japanese High Command was when the Americans were designing the attack on their mainland towards the end of Word War II.

The Assault on Autistic Children and their Parents…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Things are about to change in the Autism Wars.  A new report is going to be released next week.  Find out about it below.

Everybody knows that I am a Crisis Management Consultant in the health care industry.  I get called into the cases where the quackbuster misinformation group is operating.  Not so long ago, I was hired to look at a situation in Austin, Texas where a clinic was attacked by goofbag Stephen Barrett  on several fronts – a Texas Medical Board complaint was filed against the doctor (Jesus Caquias MD), all of the health insurance companies stopped paying the clinic for their services, and the FBI raided the clinic last July 2009, claiming in the warrant that they were investigating the clinic for “Insurance Fraud,” and “Health Fraud” violations.

The Mushroom Cloud that Caused Autism

Opinion by: Kenneth Stoller, MD, FAAP with Anne McElroy Dachel

 

In the first article in this series on autism, a mercurial finger was pointed at the high level of mercury children received from their vaccines and the huge upswing in the autism rate. It was noted that the background level of mercury pollution from coal-fire power plants and other sources (such as dental amalgam) was so high that one in every six women in the US has a level of mercury in her body high enough to affect her children’s health.  The cost to society of these affected children amounts to billions of dollars annually, and the ultimate cost of caring for all those disabled will cost trillions. Lastly, the point was made that this isn’t so much about autism as it is about the future of human life on this planet if we don’t stop mercury pollution.

Throwing children into oncoming traffic: The truth about Autism

By: Kenneth Stoller, MD, FAAP with Anne McElroy Dachel

 

I have been a practicing pediatrician for over 20 years. I saw my first child with autism in the early 90’s – before that I had never seen an autistic child, and I never saw an autistic child in all my years at school. The boy was 4 years old and you could see the frustration in his face as he wanted to speak but nothing intelligible would come from his mouth except shrieks of anguish.   Continue reading Throwing children into oncoming traffic: The truth about Autism
