Now the CDC has put the research 12 years behind.
"CDC's Dr. Thompson: When I talk to you (Dr. Hooker), you have a son with autism. I have great shame now when I meet families with kids with autism because I have been part of the problem.
Dr. Hooker: Not for my son personally. My son got his vaccinations in 1998, dude. You don’t have to shoulder that one.
Dr. Thompson: No, no, no, no. Here’s what I shoulder. I shoulder that the CDC has put the research 10 years behind. Because the CDC has not been transparent, we’ve missed ten years of research because the CDC is so paralyzed right now by anything related to autism. They’re not doing what they should be doing because they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated. So anyway there’s still a lot of shame with that. So when I talk to a person like you who has to live this day in and day out, I say well, so I have to deal with a few months of hell if all this becomes public, um, no big deal. I’m not having to deal with a child who is suffering day in and day out. So that’s the way I view all this. I am completely ashamed of what I did. So that’s that. "
