On January 10, 2017, President Trump asked Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to lead a Vaccine Safety Commission. This news was met with extreme protest from the vaccine industry and their spokespeople, which raises an obvious question:
"Who wouldn't want safer vaccines?"
On February 7, 2017, the American Academy of Pediatrics sent a letter to President Trump protesting the establishment of a Vaccine Safety Commission, and included a list of 41 published studies which the AAP believes prove that vaccines are safe and effective, and couldn't possibly be causing American children any harm whatsoever, as they state in their letter:
"Claims that vaccines are unsafe when administered according to expert recommendations have been disproven by a robust body of medical literature."
The AAP studies are rife with conflicts of interest, inaccuracies, and even scandal. For illustrative purposes, here are three studies the AAP sent to President Trump:
#1 was written by a CDC scientist who has sought whistleblower protection because he claims he and his colleagues threw away data and committed scientific fraud. Dr. William Thompson's complete statement can be read here, and includes the following:
"I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed."
#2 was written by a wanted felon, Poul Thorsen, who is accused of embezzling money from the CDC.
#3 was also written by the Whistleblower mentioned in #1, Dr. William Thompson. This study shows-unequivocally-that certain vaccines are causing tics, a devastating neurological condition. Further support for a Vaccine Safety Commission.
