From the New York Times bestselling co-author of Plague of Corruption comes an explosive exposé of the CDC cover-up of the dangerous consequences of the MMR vaccine.

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. 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 African American males. Many have claimed this is the greatest medical crime against African Americans since the infamous Tuskegee syphilis experiments. Thompson would eventually turn over thousands of the documents to US Congressman William Poesy.

Science teacher and New York Times bestselling co-author of Plague of Corruption, 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 three-decades long disaster since passage of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which gave pharmaceutical companies complete immunity for damages caused by their products. This updated version contains startling revelations from Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, the government's main medical witness, that as early as 2007 government attorneys were aware that at least one third of autism cases were connected to vaccinations.
