    The New York Times bestselling anti-vaccination advocate presents the case that the CDC covered up dangerous side effects 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. 
     
    Science teacher and New York Times bestselling co-author of Plague of Corruption, Kent Heckenlively, was granted access to this trove of documents and uses them, as well as 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 new statements 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.
