The History of the Fraud

The autism research fraud at the CDC began in the early 1990s. At the time, there was a growing concern about the link between vaccines and autism. The CDC was responsible for investigating this link, and they published a number of studies that found no evidence of a link.

However, in 1998, a whistleblower named Dr. William Thompson came forward and alleged that the CDC had falsified the data in these studies. Thompson said that the CDC had deleted data from children who had developed autism after receiving vaccines. He also said that the CDC had pressured researchers to change their s to support the agency's position that there was no link between vaccines and autism.

The People Involved

The following people were involved in the autism research fraud at the CDC:

  • Dr. Julie Gerberding, Director of the CDC
  • Dr. Walter Orenstein, Director of the National Immunization Program at the CDC
  • Dr. Frank DeStefano, lead author of the CDC's studies on vaccines and autism
  • Dr. William Thompson, whistleblower

The Consequences of the Fraud

The autism research fraud at the CDC had a number of consequences:

  • It led to a loss of public trust in the CDC.
  • It caused parents to delay or refuse to vaccinate their children, which led to outbreaks of preventable diseases.
  • It hindered research into the causes of autism.

The Cover-Up

After Thompson's allegations came to light, the CDC conducted an internal investigation. However, the investigation was flawed, and it failed to find any evidence of wrongng. The CDC then stonewalled Congress and the media for years, refusing to release documents or answer questions about the fraud.

In 2014, a group of journalists from the Associated Press published a series of articles that exposed the CDC's cover-up of the fraud. The articles revealed that the CDC had known about Thompson's allegations for years, but had taken no action to investigate them. The articles also revealed that the CDC had pressured researchers to change their s to support the agency's position that there was no link between vaccines and autism.

The Legacy of the Fraud

The autism research fraud at the CDC is a dark chapter in the history of public health. The fraud led to a loss of public trust in the CDC, and it caused parents to delay or refuse to vaccinate their children, which led to outbreaks of preventable diseases. The fraud also hindered research into the causes of autism.

The CDC's cover-up of the fraud is also a serious problem. The CDC is a public health agency, and it is supposed to be transparent and accountable to the public. The CDC's cover-up of the fraud shows that the agency is not always willing to be transparent or accountable.
