The Epoch Times is reporting that Del Bigtree, founder of the Informed Consent Action Network, said his organization will be suing the CDC to request it take down its statement that claims vaccines do not cause autism from its webpage on autism and vaccines.
Bigtree told The Epoch Times that there is “no science” to backup the statement.
“This is a false statement,” Bigtree told The Epoch Times. “We will bring a case against the CDC to remove that from the website because it is actually inaccurate.”
The CDC, Bigtree said, hasn’t provided Informed Consent Action Network studies that show vaccines given to infants in the first six months do not cause autism.
In 2000, only 1 in 150 children were diagnosed with autism. In 2016, the CDC estimated 1 in 45 children had autism.
The CDC told The Epoch Times in an email that it has always been clear on the subject — “vaccines do not cause autism.”
