The Definitive Study – Bill Thompson, CDC Senior Scientist
DR. PAUL OFFIT: “You had a definitive test, as far as I’m concerned, regarding thimerosal safety. I mean, that study that Bill Thompson performed at the CDC in 2007, that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, was a wonderful study.”
Eric Gladen: The lead author of this study is a Senior CDC Scientist who, for over a decade now, has played a major role in the CDC to disprove a link between vaccines and autism.
DR. PAUL OFFIT: “I think that stands as a definitive study.”
DR. BRIAN HOOKER: “The Thompson study was not done on any children with autism or autism spectrum disorder. They eliminated those that were most likely to be vulnerable to Thimerosal damage before the study even started.”
DR. WILLIAM THOMPSON: “They’re not doing what they should be doing because they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated.”
