FRAUDULENT CDC STUDY ON VACCINE SAFETY RELEASED TODAY

Dear Parents,

Below is a release you can use today or over the weekend to send to local TV
and print reporters regarding the new CDC Study. Please call your local
stations and newspapers and get email addresses and forward this on.
Distribute the press release as widely as possible so the real truth can
emerge.

Also, please send this release and links below to your Congressmen and
Senators. They need to hear from all in the autism community. We need valid
research to treat and cure our children. Not manipulated data.
Both the original VSD study from Feb. 2000 showing the thimerosal-autism
link and the transcripts of the Simpsonwood meeting are on www.safeminds.org
and www.factsformedia.com

Thank you.

FRAUDULENT CDC STUDY ON VACCINE SAFETY RELEASED TODAY,
ORIGINAL 2000 STUDY CONCLUDES MERCURY-AUTISM LINK ORIGINAL
UNPUBLISHED CDC STUDY IN 2000 FINDS 2.48 RELATIVE RISK BETWEEN
AUTISM AND MERCURY-BASED PRESERVATIVE.

MANY SAY NEWEST STUDY CONTAINS MANIPULATED DATA

Raleigh/Durham, NC A new Vaccine Safety Data-link (VSD) study conducted by
the Centers for Disease Control is expected to be published in Pediatrics on
Monday, but an online version of the report was released today. The newest
study falsely reports no link between neurodevelopmental disorders such as
autism, and the mercury-based vaccine preservative Thimerosal. The 2000
version of the study did find a connection, but was never published.

Only through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was the research group
Safe Minds able to retrieve the original study which found that exposure to
more than 62.5 micrograms of mercury in vaccines within the first three
months of life could make children more than twice as likely to develop
autism than children not exposed.

"We've got an explosion of autism that correlates with the increase in
Thimerosal exposure in children, and it appears to me that this new study
serves only to mislead the public," says Laura Bono, parent of a
vaccine-injured child. "Through analysis of the new study, we've learned
that the authors included and excluded data they knew would give them their
desired outcome and, in my opinion, that is deliberate deception."

Dr. Tom Verstraeten was the lead investigator in the original study and one
of the authors of the current article. Although he is now employed by
vaccine-manufacturer giant GlaxoSmithKlein, the current article fails to
disclose the clear conflict of interest.

In 2000, after the original study was released, a group of 48 doctors, among
other professionals, discreetly gathered at the Simpsonwood Retreat Center
in Georgia to discuss the data that linked mercury in vaccines to autism.
Transcripts of the meeting, also retrieved through FOIA, reveal comments
from concerned doctors about the original study's conclusions. One doctor
was quoted as saying, "There are just a host of Neurodevelopmental data that
would suggest that we've got a serious problem." Another stated, "So we are
in a bad position from the standpoint of defending any lawsuits and I am
concerned."

Many feel the original study should have been published and blame the CDC
for covering up mercury poisoning that has injured thousands of children
only to calm fears and protect drug companies.

"Let's open our eyes here...they cherry-picked the data, they used an HMO
known for bad record keeping, and they included children least likely to have
an autism diagnosis because of their age," says parent Lori McIlwain.

Another VSD study done by independent researchers who have nothing to gain
will soon be released and contradict this latest CDC study," she says.

The new CDC VSD report comes on the heels of the 'Global Warming' report
recently released by the Environmental Protection Agency which is also said
to contain manipulated data and deleted portions.
