She says that the medical community is to afraid of what they will find so they won't properly investigate the vaccine/autism connection, and that medicine has a duty to protect those vulnerable to vaccine injury.
A big thank you to Dr. Healy for speaking reasonable truth when so many doctors are speaking nonsense.
Vaccine Court Considers Autism Link
CBS News Exclusive: Former Head Of NIH Says Government Too Quick To Dismiss Possible Link
A second round of autism test cases begins Monday in federal vaccine court.
Tonight on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, Attkisson has exclusive interviews with the two families bringing the cases: two of nearly 5,000 autism cases that have been filed in this special court.
The government and many scientists have consistently maintained for more than a decade that there is no link between vaccines and autism. The Institute of Medicine issued a report in 2004 that was intended to put the controversy to rest, saying that the weight of the body of scientific evidence does not show a causal link between vaccines and autism. However, other scientists and parents disagree.
Attkisson interviewed Dr. Bernadine Healy, the former head of the National Institutes of Health and a member of the Institute of Medicine who breaks with her colleagues in this exclusive CBS News interview: Dr. Healy says the government has been too quick to dismiss the possibility of a vaccine-autism link, and that it should be explored with renewed vigor.
