    Disguised Social Injustice and Malice in USA

    in Health

    Senior epidemiologist at the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), Dr. William Thompson, released thousands of pages of CDC documents of research data to Congress this past summer of 2014. admitting to falsifying data from a 2004 CDC report that was published in the journal Pediatrics.Dr. Thompson disclosed that he along with other CDC cientists deliberately excluded Black children from the study, and altered data in order to negate any links between vaccines and autism. He declares, the initial report found that giving children the vaccine before the age of 36 months increased the risk of autism by 69%; but in Black children the risk of autism triples to a scary 240%.  The Obama administration has granted Dr. Thompson whistleblower status; granting him immunity. 

    . In 2014, there was a massive wave of reports in the media claiming that women of childbearing age had been given tetanus vaccines containing the hormone hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), rendering them infertile. When introduced into the body with a tetanus toxoid carrier, antibodies will be formed not only against tetanus but, also against hCG. The body will produce anti-hCG antibodies. The antibodies will  attack hCG, which naturally sustains a pregnancy so that a woman  is incapable of maintaining a pregnancy.The vaccines were administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the (WHO) World Health Organization and UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund).

    A polio immunizations scheduled April 2015 contained estradiol, an estrogen compound, which, when exposed to males, damages the sperm. It is clear that  estrogen hormone plays a significant role in sexual orientation.
