Science has a sacred obligation to tell the truth. The public expects our scientific and medical authorities to perform their work free of undue influence or bias. But what happens when or most prestigious institutions lie and attempt to destroy data which shows harm to children? Is that a crime against humanity? In November of 2013, Simpson Thompson, a senior university biology professor, Dr. Brian Hooker got a call from Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) working in vaccine safety. Their conversations would lead to explosive revelations that tip officials at the CC engaged in a systematic cover-up of data showing that earlier administrations of the MMR vaccine caused increased rates of autism in children, particularly among African American males. Thompson would eventually turn over thousands of these documents to the office of US Congressman William Posey. Science teacher and author Kent Heckenlively, was granted access to this unprecedented trove of documents and used them, as well as ground breaking interviews with many of the key payers in this debate, to tell the story of how vaccines have become a thirty year disaster since passage of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which gave pharmaceutical companies complete immunity from damage caused by their products.
