​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 our 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 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.

"Donald Trump met with Dr. Andrew Wakefield on August 11, 2016 to discuss the whistle-blower allegations of Dr. William Thompson, the subject of my book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism.  

President-Elect Trump pledged his support and promised that if he won there would be further meetings.  The autism community congratulates Donald Trump on his election and looks forward to those discussions.

Their conversations would lead to explosive revelations that top officials at the CDC engaged in a systematic cover-up of data showing that earlier administration 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 uses them, as well as ground-breaking interviews with many of the key players 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 for damage caused by their products.

It asks difficult questions, and seeks answers from those who have them. And he ends with what is almost a prayer that asks for science to regain its soul. A powerful book.”
