It is past time to extradite Poul Thorsen, the Danish researcher hired in the early 2000s by the CDC to create studies showing no connection between autism and vaccines. Despite a federal indictment in 2011 for stealing CDC funds, among other crimes, the Obama administration made no effort to extradite Thorsen, even though he travelled internationally, and made no effort to hide, as documented by James Grundvig in his book Master Manipulator. Thorsen was even credited as an author on CDC papers published after his indictment. The Thorsen studies are still the foundation of current federal policy denying any connection between the mercury-based preservative thimerosal, the MMR vaccine, and autism. It is time to extradite Thorsen and compel him to testify under oath for the crimes he has committed. Denmark and the US have an extradition treaty, all we need to do is ask.
Before you do that though please take a moment to support the Autism Action Network by supporting our one fundraiser of the year. If you value the information and advocacy we bring to you please make it possible for us to continue to do so.

Two Thorsen papers are of special interest. In Autism Rate Among Danish Children Reported in A Population Based Study of Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccination and Autism, the authors claim that, “This study provides strong evidence against the hypothesis that MMR vaccination causes autism,” even though the data in the study clearly shows that children who got an MMR vaccine had a 45% higher rate of full-syndrome autism than children who were not vaccinated, and a 31% higher rate of less severe forms of autism. This data can be seen at the link below, Table 2,
Thorsen and crew also published a paper, Thimerosal and the Occurrence of Autism: Negative Ecological Evidence From Danish Population-Based Data, that claims to show that autism rates continued to rise in Denmark through 1995 after thimerosal, was removed from new vaccines produced in Denmark in 1992, thereby proving no correlation between thimerosal and autism. In addition to multiple manipulations that appear to constitute scientific fraud, later studies done in Denmark by members of Thorsen's own team, however, show a steady drop in the number of autism cases in Denmark after a peak in 1995. A decline that still continues. Recurrence of Autism Spectrum Disorders in Full- and Half-Siblings and Trends Over Time: A Population-Based Cohort Study]
One would think that if anyone really cared about autism we would be studying Denmark intensely to determine why their autism rate is declining while in the US the rate is increasing exponentially.
