Green, a medical doctor, questioned data from the CDC and other institutions that purport to disprove the vaccine link.
‚ÄúLet me say this about autism,‚ÄĚ Green said. ‚ÄúI have committed to people in my community, up in Montgomery County, to stand on the CDC‚Äôs desk and get the real data on vaccines. Because there is some concern that the rise in autism is the result of the preservatives that are in our vaccines.
‚ÄúAs a physician, I can make that argument and I can look at it academically and make the argument against the CDC, if they really want to engage me on it,‚ÄĚ Green said.
Jane Orient, M.D., former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, says the real problems are a lack of adequate research and the medical industry‚Äôs apparent effort to conceal any link between vaccines and autism.
