Did you know there is a fugitive from the U.S. Justice Department thriving openly in Denmark who created a fraudulent study used to eliminate autism claims from vaccines? His name is Poul Thorsen, and he is a psychiatrist who was contracted by the CDC to perform the notorious “Danish Study.”

The Danish Study, published in 2003 by the journal Pediatrics asserted that autism rates in Denmark rose dramatically after mercury was no longer used in vaccines for children in the Netherlands, thus “proving” that there is no association with thimerosal (mercury) in vaccines to autism.
The Danish Study became a major study quoted by the FDA, the IOM (The National Institute of Medicine) now renamed the National Academy of Medicine, and the CDC to “disprove” the dangers of thimerosal in vaccines and the MMR even without thimerosal. It became the cornerstone of all media and public denial of autism from vaccines.
Even worse, it served as the legal basis for dismissing over 5,000 autism claims in The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program or “Vaccine Court” in 2010, and totally removing autism claims from vaccine injuries completely.
The Vaccine Court used an Omnibus Autism Proceeding hearing for all autism claims filed by trying three test cases out of over 5,000 claimants to decide whether or not vaccine injury compensation was warranted for autism claims, after years of filings for plaintiffs’ attorneys.
The whole purpose of the Vaccine Court is to protect vaccine manufacturers against liability from lawsuits that had been mounting prior to 1986. The funds used to pay come from surcharge “taxes” of 75 cents each on all vaccines sold.
If the shot contains more than one vaccine, e.g. the MMR which contains three, then 75 cents is multiplied by the number in each multivalent vaccine. So every time an MMR or other trivalent shot is purchased, $2.25 goes into the fund.
Since the Vaccine Court’s inception in 1986, its vaccine injury payment fund had grown to almost $3.5 billion by 2014. By denying over 5,000 vaccine induced autism claims, the government saved billions. (Source)
There were several thousand autism claims involving thimerosal in vaccines and the MMR vaccine with or without thimerosal. The CDC claims thimerosal never existed in the MMR while stating thimerosal has been used as a preservative in multiple vaccine shots, known as multivalent vaccines, for decades.
Frantic Efforts by CDC to Cover Evidence of Autism from Vaccines Led to Contract with Thorsen
Poul Thorsen was not indicted by a federal grand jury in Atlanta for his fraudulent study that “disproves” any connection with thimerosal in vaccines to autism. That will probably never happen in our vaccine propaganda saturated culture.
Thorsen, a psychiatrist, was indicted on 13 counts of wire fraud and 9 counts of money laundering involved with embezzling around $2 million of federal money, our tax dollars, while he was involved with misrepresenting studies that are offered as the final “proof” that vaccines containing thimerasol don’t cause autism. This statement was easily blurred to include all vaccines, by the media, the public, and all governmental agencies including the WHO (World Health Organization).
Psychiatric evaluations of autism are behavioral symptoms determined by a committee and offered in the latest version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, commonly known as the DSM. But many who were rendered autistic by vaccination have extremely painful bowel and gut inflammations or seizures.
That’s what Dr. Andrew Wakefield dealt with as a gastroenterologist. All 12 pediatric patients who were brought to his care were autistic and suffered from intense gastrointestinal inflammation, and they were fine until given the MMR. Wakefield was attacked for merely recommending the trivalent MMR vaccine be separated and given on three different spaced apart occasions, based on his case study.
Dr. Wakefield’s paper and others that confirmed his findings soon after, in addition to the CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson’s telephone confessions to Dr. Brian Hooker, Ph.D., featured in the film “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe” were not the only autism implications of concern.
There was the secret Simpsonwood meeting in 2000 just outside Atlanta of several key CDC members, some WHO members, and representatives from major vaccine makers to discuss how to deal with the frightening findings of Dr. Tom Verstraeten, a CDC epidemiologist.
Using the CDC’s internal and vast Vaccine Safety Datalink database, which is well beyond the publicly accessible VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) and contains virtually all medical records involving vaccinated children of all ages, Dr. Verstraeten discovered a lot of statistical inconvenient facts implicating thimerosal (mercury) induced neurological damage, including autism.
Those at that meeting hatched a plan to tweak his studies, and Dr. Verstraeten went along with it, to make it seem inconclusive and demand the usual “further studies” clause. Dr. Verstraeten was rewarded with a lucrative position at vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
This is what led to key CDC officials welcoming Danish Dr. Thorsen into the CDC fold as a visiting scientist for his specific mission to perform a further study to cover the thimerosal and MMR-autism controversy completely.
From the Copenhagen Post:
Thorsen helped two Danish government agencies obtain research grants, which amounted to $11 million between 2000 and 2009, whilst he was working as a visiting scientist at the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the 1990s.
He returned to Denmark as the ‘principal investigator’ for the programme, which studied the relationship between autism and exposure to vaccines, allegedly putting him in charge of the administration of the funding.
It is alleged that over the four-year period he submitted over a dozen false invoices from the CDC for research expenses to Aarhus University, where he held a faculty position, instructing them to transfer the funds to a CDC account, which was in fact his personal account.
Thorsen’s research on autism is widely known in academic circles, where he was until this week a highly respected figure. (Source)
Because the Thorsen Danish Study that concluded autism rates went up after thimerosal was taken out of vaccines was so flawed, especially with the study’s exclusion of how autism rates from other sources were added to the Danish registrar, that two major journals, JAMA and the Lancet, declined its publication.
But Colleen Boyle of the CDC pushed the journal Pediatrics to publish the Danish Study, making it “official.” (Source)

Why Hasn’t Thorsen Been Extradited to Stand Trial?
Poul Thorsen is not hiding in some cave or in an attic somewhere in Amsterdam. And there is an existing extradition treaty between the United States and Denmark. As a matter of fact, Thorsen was carrying on with more research in Denmark as late as 2014, three years after his indictment.
A newsletter from the online Age of Autism reveals that Thorsen received funding as a co-researcher from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) a very major USA health agency, as revealed in a slide from Dr. Suzanne Humphries’ lecture on “Manufacturing Consent.” (Source)
There are some dots that can be leisurely linked to create a larger picture of fraud and deceit regarding vaccines. There is a vast house of cards that support each other to keep vaccines safe from low sales.
- The Department of Justice (DOJ) is involved with the Vaccine Court. (Source)
- The DOJ is commonly involved with the extradition process.
- The head of the CDC during all the most egregious fraudulent activities was Julia Gerberding, who exited from the CDC with a revolving door as head of Merck’s vaccine division. Merck is North America’s major MMR supplier.
- Despite Congressman Bill Posey’s two pleas for a congressional investigation regarding CDC whistleblower William Thompson, there has been no activity by Congress in that direction.
- The pharmaceutical industry is a heavy political donor. (Source)
- The mainstream media depends heavily on advertising money from the pharmaceutical industry (“… ask your doctor about…).
- Many top media executives have major stock holdings in the pharmaceutical industry. One example is James Murdoch headed the Sunday London Times during its coverage of Andrew Wakefield. The Murdochs are heavily invested in Merck and GSK, which are the major MMR producers of the world.
- The CDC actually owns several patents wholly or partially. Some estimate the number to be around 50. The CDC also buys vaccines with federal funds. (Source)
If any public criminal hearings were to occur with Poul Thorsen, that could become the one card to collapse the whole house. That’s why it won’t happen.
