“Toxic Children, Toxic Lies” Rally Expresses Outrage Over AAP’s Refusal to Demand Safer Vaccines, Highlights Dramatic Recovery Stories
Elk Grove, IL (February 18, 2008)- Dozens of parents of vaccine-injured children from all over America will join a cadre of researchers and physicians Wednesday morning for “Toxic Children, Toxic Lies,” a protest at the American Academy of Pediatrics Headquarters in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. The rally will express the outrage of thousands of parents of autistic children over the American Academy of Pediatrics’ unethical maneuvers to protect the National Immunization Program, even if it means lying to the public about the safety of children's vaccines. Parents will also share dramatic recovery stories of vaccine-injured children who have undergone biomedical intervention therapies to reverse the damage caused by toxic metals and viral overload in vaccines.
Parents of vaccine-injured children were shocked at the recent censorship attempt of the AAP, which recently demanded that ABC cancel the series premiere of the new drama “Eli Stone.” The episode portrayed an attorney who successfully sued a pharmaceutical giant after his client’s child became autistic after receiving a mercury-containing vaccine.
On Wednesday, February 20th, 2008, parents of vaccine-injured children will gather at the American Academy of Pediatrics Headquarters at 141 NW Point Boulevard, Elk Grove Village, IL, beginning at 7:30 a.m., to confront AAP leadership as they arrive for work. A news conference will be held for the media at 9:30 a.m. featuring parents and physicians.
In 1999, the AAP recommended the removal of thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative, from all childhood vaccines. However, the AAP has recently reversed its position on thimerosal, and now inexplicably states that there is no health concern with injecting mercury, a known neurotoxin, into infants and children. Dozens of advocacy groups representing parents of autistic children believe the AAP leadership have become apologists for unsafe vaccines, and dangerous one-size-fits-all vaccination policies which have harmed a subset of genetically vulnerable children. Furthermore, autism advocacy groups are dismayed that the AAP continues to refuse to recognize the efficacy and growing popularity of biomedical intervention therapies for vaccine-injured children.
Parental concern over the safety of the vaccination schedule has risen as the number of recommended vaccines has risen. In 1983, when autism affected just 1 in 10,000 children, the Centers for Disease Control’s mandatory vaccination schedule consisted of 10 shots. Today, when 1 in 150 children is affected with an autism spectrum disorder, the CDC now recommends 36 separate shots from birth to age six, a whopping increase of 260%. With that increase, the prevalence of neurological disorders like autism and ADHD has grown exponentially.
Thousands of parents believe their child’s regression into autism was triggered, if not caused, by over-vaccination with toxic ingredients and live viruses found in vaccines, such as mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, ether and antifreeze. The Centers for Disease Control and the AAP dispute this, but independent research and the first-hand accounts of parents tell a different story. Additionally, autistic children around the country have seen dramatic recoveries from vaccine injury when they begin to undergo biomedical intervention therapies to reverse the damage caused by toxic metals and viral overload.
Mayer Eisenstein, MD, JD, MPH, is Medical Director Homefirst® Health Services in Chicago, IL. Eisenstein works with parents who are concerned about the CDC’s extreme vaccination schedule and helps them design a different schedule for their children that is gentler to an infant’s developing immune system.
“As a physician and an attorney, I also hold a degree in public health. I am extremely proud of the thousands of parents, who in spite of their pediatricians’ lack of concern for injecting mercury into their children, reject the idea of doing so,” said Eisenstein.
Researcher and physician David Ayoub, MD, is the Director of the Prairie Collaborative for Immunization. “A growing number of experimental, epidemiological and biochemical research has unequivocally shown that mercury is directly linked to the development of autism spectrum disorders and is significantly toxic to the gastrointestinal, immunological, metabolic and neurobiological systems in children,” said Ayoub. “The nation’s one-size-fits-all vaccination policy has indisputably harmed some of our kids. It is time for the AAP and the CDC to stop the denial. We must demand answers and learn why the increase in the number and composition of so many vaccinations has led to an epidemic in neurological disorders in our nation’s children.”
