Better science, better kids, and a DJ
PutChildrenFirst.org was founded by parents to let the world know that the Centers For Disease Control (CDC), a division of the Department of Health and Human Services, is covering-up the relationship between a near-tripling of vaccinations for our children in the 1990s and the epidemic of autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders that began at exactly the same time.
In 1999, the world was made aware through a joint statement by the AAP and Federal health authorities that our children were receiving dangerous levels of mercury through vaccines as part of the Childhood Immunization Schedule. Soon thereafter, the CDC's own internal analysis showed a startling correlation between autism and injected mercury.
For the next 7 years, the CDC has manipulated data, hidden results, purchased studies, and deceived parents, pediatricians, and politicians in a blatant act of self-preservation and pharmaceutical industry protectionism. When the mercury-autism connection could not be disproven using our own American data, the CDC shopped the world for studies to try and refute any correlation, finally finding support from a Danish vaccine manufacturer.
We don't expect everyone who reads this website to believe us. Our proof comes through the very words of the people responsible for this cover-up. The Freedom of Information Act, which many of the perpetrators did not realize applied to them, has allowed us to unearth dozens of documents never before seen by the public. We invite you to see for yourself. It's time to put our children first.
