(NaturalNews) The CDC relies on an authoritative presence to influence not just USA health policy, but world health policy. This prestigious presence also demands more federal funding, which is being questioned. It seems that the CDC's research, practices, and expenditures have been under scrutiny lately.
Remembering the 2008 swine flu hoax
Remember all those pandemic forecasts from the CDC when different high numbers of swine flu outbreaks were reported? A CBS News program called "Washington Unplugged" wanted to know more details on how those figures were derived, but the CDC stonewalled that reporter.
To his credit, he went around the CDC by surveying each individual state's health agency, and he discovered that very few swine flu cases reported by the CDC were confirmed as swine flu. Most were actually a normal "seasonal" flu.
The discrepancy between CDC swine flu statistics and actual confirmed cases was too large to considered sloppy record keeping. Upon further pressure from "Washington Unplugged" news producer, the CDC clamped down more and decided they couldn't track swine flu cases anymore because "it was too difficult."
The CDC quit doing what they're supposed to do because they got caught cooking the swine flu stats.
This was a rare case of kudos for the mainstream media. For those paying attention, it flagged the CDC's bogus promotion of swine flu shots for a flu that hardly existed and that many considered less dangerous than a normal seasonal flu.
CDC lies about mercury in vaccines
From investigative reporter Tim Bolen of The Bolen Report's two part article "The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are – And Has Covered It Up" (sourced below). As early as 1998 the CDC knew that there were problems with using thimerosal mercury in vaccines.
This was especially true with the ever increasing childhood vaccination schedule. Their own researchers turned in a internal draft stating this. The CDC decided to cover this up by hiring fake studies to explain away those mercury links to the rising autism rates.
The earliest misleading study was the "Danish Study," masterminded for the CDC by Kreesten Madsen, whose partner Paul Thorsen has recently been indicted for fraudulent funding activities. This epidemiological study became the cornerstone for the foundation of lies "proving" thimerosal was not a factor for causing autism or other childhood developmental disabilities.
Bolen adds, "Even the US Congress began to smell the CDC stink and investigated." A congressional committee released a 2003 report called Mercury in Medicine – Taking Unnecessary Risks. The report pdf can be seen here: http://vaccines.procon.org/sourcefi…
Congressman Dan Burton headed the investigation. He had a grandchild who was vaccinated then became autistic, and he was ruthless with vaccine industry and CDC representatives while he presided over hearings. The appropriate findings and excellent suggestions were ignored by the Bush administration and the CDC.
Bolen wondered where anti-vaccination activist Bobby Kennedy, Jr. got a one in six figure for developmentally challenged children. Then he came across a bulletin from the CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics issued in 2004 entitled Autism A.L.A.R.M. (source below) which stated that one in six children had developmental/behavioral issues while one in 166 were diagnosed with an autistic disorder.
Tim Bolen estimates that from 1998 to 2011, close to 12 million children worldwide have been afflicted with autism, making the worldwide autism ratio one out of 111 children. The CDC claims they don't understand how this is all happening. They just know it is.
The full title of the CDC is Center for Disease Control and Prevention. They're very heavily funded but clueless about autism and developmental disorders on the rise?
Ten billion and asking for more
In 2007 Senator Tom Coburn issued a report titled CDC Off Center (source below). The report cites huge mismanagement of funds for non-disease related expenses, generous payrolls, overly lavish facilities, and trips wasting funds on frivolous disease control issues while unable to explain how they are preventing disease.
CBS did a special report on Coburn's report, and mentioned that even then (2007) the CDC was asking the US Government for an additional billion dollars to its $10 billion dollar budget.
David and Goliath
A Ph.D biochemist, Brian Hooker, whose son became autistic after a series of vaccinations, has recently filed a suit against the CDC for violating the Freedom of Information Act by not releasing data he has been requesting since 2005 regarding CDC studies that dismissed mercury vaccine dangers.
According to Bolen, Hooker is going in with top gun lawyers in the Washington, DC loop. He has given the CDC an ultimatum to release the documents he wants by late October 2011. This could be interesting.
