“The whole literature of the past will have been destroyed. Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Byron - they'll exist only in newspeak versions, not merely changed into something different, but actually changed into something contradictory of what they used to be.” Orwell 1984.
Today, the word “safe” has been changed into something contradictory. Look at what the CDC is telling parents about the flu vaccine preservative called thimerosal, which contains 50 percent mercury.
“Is it safe for children to receive an influenza vaccine that contains thimerosal? Yes. There is no convincing evidence of harm caused by the small amount of thimerosal in vaccines, except for minor effects like swelling and redness at the injection site due to sensitivity to thimerosal.” See CDC (HERE).
Ok, there is evidence of harm, but it is just not convincing. So in newspeak version--having only some evidence of harm makes it “safe” to inject into children’s bodies.
Furthermore, a tragic case occurred in 1969. A clerical error resulted in fatal thimerosal injections of five people, including a two year old weighing 31 pounds where the lethal dose of thimerosal was one gram.
“The error in manufacture of the chloramphenicol ampoules arose over mistyping kilogram for gram.”
See Axton 1972 at (HERE) .
And for chronic (long term) toxicity at lower doses of thimerosal vaccination doses, a CDC analysis report recognized statistically inferred evidence of harm.
“In conclusion, we can state that this analysis does not rule out that receipt of thimerosal-containing vaccine in children under three months of age may be related to an increased risk of neurologic development disorders.” See Verstraeten et al 2000 (HERE).
Also, four years later one of the authors, Dr. Verstraeten, stated
“…more study is required.” See (HERE) .
But even before the Verstraeten et al 2000 report, the FDA and CDC called for the removal of thimerosal.
“Nevertheless, because any potential risk is of concern, the Public Health Service, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and vaccine manufacturers agree that thimerosal-containing vaccines should be removed as soon as possible.” See CDC 1999 (HERE).
And today more information is available about mercury exposure times in the blood and brain after injection with vaccines containing thimerosal. For instance, in children, the average half life of mercury in blood from thimerosal was measured at about 3.7 days. See Pichichero et al 2008 (HERE).
And in infant monkeys, the average brain mercury levels were 3.5 times higher than in the blood. And even more alarming, because neuron injury from mercury is dependent on both dose and time, is the finding that that about a third of the total infant monkey brain mercury resulting from thimerosal was inorganic mercury--with a half life of greater than 120 days! See Burbacher et al 2005 (HERE).
So don’t let CDC turn around the meaning of safe. Multidose flu shots with thimerosal are injected into millions of children each year. Their brains are apparently exposed to mercury for long time periods. It has not been proven safe!
