A former CDC researcher who worked to suppress the link between vaccines and autism is still a fugitive from justice. He is accused of using CDC grant money to buy himself a house and cars.
Paul Thorsen is listed as a most-wanted fugitive by the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General. The former CDC researcher was indicted in April 2011 on 13 counts of wire fraud and nine counts of money laundering. Those questioning vaccine safety and efficacy have argued that Mr. Thorsen’s behavior should call into question the validity of his vaccine safety study conclusions. On the contrary, none of his studies have been retracted despite the credibility problems raised by his fugitive status.
CDC Fugitive escaped to Denmark
The HHS Inspector General said, “From approximately February 2004 until February 2010, Poul Thorsen executed a scheme to steal grant money awarded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”
Mr. Thorsen worked for CDC as a visiting scientist before the agency awarded grants to fund “research involving the relationship between autism and the exposure to vaccines” as well as other disabilities. Mr. Thorsen stands accused of stealing more than $1 million of CDC grant money.
HHS Inspector General added, “Thorsen submitted fraudulent invoices on CDC letterhead to medical facilities assisting in the research for reimbursement of work allegedly covered by the grants.”
Mr. Thorsen co-authored vaccine-autism studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine and Pediatrics. He always concluded that no evidence links thimerosal in vaccines with autism, and that no link exists between Merck’s MMR vaccine and autism.
Revolving CDC Door for Julie Gerberding
Investigative reporter Sheryl Atkisson notes that Mr. Thorsen reached his conclusions with CDC during the rancid reign of CDC director Dr. Julie Gerberding, who left her CDC post after the safety studies to take a position with Merck, also maker of the ill-fated Gardasil vaccine and the so-called shingles vaccine. After overseeing the CDC’s greenlighting of Merck’s injurious MMR vaccine, Dr. Gerberding then became president of Merck vaccines, which claims a tidy $5 billion of the global vaccine market.
Vaccine-Autism Studies show Link
Other peer-reviewed, published studies – not funded by Merck – have found links between vaccines and autism. The U.S. government secretly conceded a case of autism after its leading medical expert concluded the child’s multiple vaccinations caused brain injuries that resulted in her autism. The government has paid out more than $3 billion to vaccine-injured children and their parents, but you won’t find that figure anywhere in mainstream media reports.
Ms. Attkisson points out that, “Pharmaceutical-vaccine propagandists promulgate the incorrect notion that all associations between vaccines and autism are a ‘myth’ or ‘disproven.’ They routinely falsely claim that researchers and journalists who investigate vaccine adverse events are ‘anti-vaccine.’” The MSM and other Big Pharma shills and trolls try to tar anyone who points out obvious vaccine problems as an “anti vaxxer.”
FDA admits Vaccine-Autism Link
Autism is now listed as a post marketing reported adverse event on the FDA-approved label for DTaP Tripedia vaccine. This shot is on the CDC’s recommended vaccine schedule for children, which means that its maker has a free liability pass for any injuries it causes.
Thorsen’s Studies Still Relied On
The CDC as well as the American Academy of Pediatrics, which shamelessly receives heavy funding from vaccine makers, both rely on the fugitive Mr. Thorsen’s studies and others by the Institute of Medicine and CDC-affiliated scientists who usually find no link between vaccines and autism.
The IG’s ‘most wanted fugitive’ website states: “Thorsen is currently in Denmark and is awaiting extradition to the United States.”
