CDC--More Evidence of a Mercury Cover-up
By Jim Thompson
Last month Age of Autism reported additional evidence obtained by SafeMinds. One of the important aspects of this is that Thomas Verstraeten reported a significant association between Thimerosal in vaccines and neurologic development disorder both in 1999 and in 2000.
First in 1999 he reported that “The relative risk (RR) of developing a neurologic development disorder was 1.8 (95% confidence intervals [CI] 1.1-2.8) when comparing the highest exposure group at 1 month of age (cumulative dose> 25 ug) to the unexposed group.”
Then in 2000, after the 1999 database was modified, he reported the following results. These were slightly lower associations of overall neurologic development disorders. But even so the evidence of an association of harm remained. The signal of evidence of harm did not go away.
“… the overall category of neurologic developmental disorders …That's an increase of .7% for each additional microgram of ethyl mercury. For an example, if we would go from zero to 50 micrograms of ethyl mercury, we would have to multiple these estimate by 50, so that would give us an additional increase of about 35 %, which is pretty close to the point estimate for this category.” (2000)
This clear statement of finding an association of Thimerosal causing harm is presented quantitatively in an equation. It does not get much stronger than this in terms of reporting a risk of harm.
So what happened next? The Institute of Medicine (IOM) committee, called the Immunization Safety Review Committee, used additional inconclusive studies to ignore Thomas Verstraeten’s first studies that reported evidence of harm.
What does this mean in terms of safety? It means there is no safety consideration at all here. It is nonsense to ignore associations of risk when they have not been shown to be incorrect. But the 2004 IOM committee said this: “The committee also concludes that the body of epidemiological evidence favors rejection of a causal relationship between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism. The committee further finds that potential biological mechanisms for vaccine induced autism that have been generated to date are theoretical only.”
To put this is plain language; this IOM committee would not act on those CDC studies by Verstraeten that found an association of harm from the injection of Thimerosal with the heavy metal mercury. So this information obtained by SafeMinds further illuminates this hoax by the IOM in the safety statements for Thimerosal preserved vaccines. And the insane practice of injection of mercury, a known neurotoxin found in Thimerosal preserved vaccines, into the bodies of children and pregnant women continues.
Congress should ban all mercury in vaccines immediately.

In order to include more information on the source of the 1999 Verstraeten abstract, the first sentence should read as follows:
Last month Age of Autism reported on additional evidence that was also reported on by Safeminds. This copy of the 1999 Verstraeten abstract was first posted on the web by the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD), a 501(C) (3) not-for-profit group in 2013.
It is currently posted with the title "CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) annual conference abstract submission for the EIS conference in April 2000. Discovered in August of 2013 in a CDC response to a Congressional Request by an office in the U.S.House of Representatives - the abstract submission is titled. ‘Increased risk of developmental neurologic impairment after high exposure to Thimerosal containing vaccine in first month of life.’"

Yes, the CDC has a significant problem of both corruption and collusion.
First, during a congressional hearing in November of 2012 US Representative Bill Posey asked questions about corruption. See http://www.c-span.org/video/?309672-1/federal-response-rise-autism-rates starting at 1:38:42 in the hearing.
Upon questioning by US Representative Bill Posey in regard to an industry scientist Poul Thorsen, who is still on the FBI wanted list for defrauding the CDC for over a million dollars, Mr. Posey declared, "This guy is a humongous scum bag and one of the most wanted men on earth." Then Mr. Posey asked why the CDC relied on the studies by him. Dr. Boyle responded that there were only two studies on autism with this indicted scientist listed as contributing author. But in fact there are over twenty! See http://www.ageofautism.com/2013/08/the-cdc-buys-and-distributes-heavy-metal-mercury-preserved-flu-vaccines-for-children.html
And second, each Thimerosal preserved flu vaccine dose that the CDC buys and distributes for children has about the same mercury by weight as one half cup of D009 mercury hazardous waste. See http://www.ageofautism.com/2012/12/poul-thorsen-called-industry-scumbag-scientist-and-mercury-shill.html .

I had the same problem with accessing the Simpsonwood transcript.

When I clicked on the highlighted "See Simpsonwood transcript p.p. 41-42" here in Jim Thompson's article
it brought me to the SafeMinds website but the message read:
"The page you are finding seem doesn't exist"
Is anyone else having a problem accessing it too?
(Also note the ungrammatical phrasing.) Seems to me it's being blocked.

That leads back to all of us then - don't it.
Tanner's Welsh Dad - said it best - we reside behind our on private castle walls - all of the American people.
I will beging tomorrow to try to be braver.

Discretionary spending on health programs makes up less than 5 percent of total discretionary spending. In the FY 2010 budget, CDC received $6.39 billion and HRSA received $7.49 billion. Public health funds were cut significantly in FY 2011 —CDC received $5.65 billion and HRSA received $6.27 billion.
The President kicks it all off with his budget and it goes to Congress and they begin working on it all year long.
Congress we forget really does have the power.
Unless we forget- and our Congressmen forget - they have a lot of power because they control the purse strings.

Jenny: they will undoubtedly use that as an excuse for mandating not only the flu shot, but whatever "flu-like illnesses" they decide to sell vaccines for.

Just had to post this one dated today - can't wait to read it.
"Well-child visits linked to more than 700,000 subsequent flu-like illnesses." is the article headline.
"New research shows that well-child doctor appointments for annual exams and vaccinations are associated with an increased risk of flu-like illnesses in children and family members within two weeks of the visit. This risk translates to more than 700,000 potentially avoidable illnesses each year, costing more than $490 million annually."

And has someone been in contact with Darryl Issa lately? What are they saying... Why is no one with the connection demanding a statement from the reps that canceled the meeting?

We are bearing witness to mass genocide. This crisis goes far beyond screw ups. There's been plenty of opportunity to change corse and correct the destructive path we're on. They've heard our complaints. They know autism numbers are skyrocketing. They've crossed the line long ago into criminal behavior. I think in their minds the endgame of a healthier, more fit population justifies the means eliminating the genetically weak (our kids). Problem is the genocidalists are protected by a buffer of sycophants and denialists who attack us in the media and social networks. Their foot soldiers keep them insulated. These fools fighting us on social media don't see it. They see themselves are warriors battling the misguided "anti vaxxers". We see them as manipulated pons in a dangerous survival game. Never mind the fact that we ALL vaxed our kids. Common sense be damned.

How sad that the "Immunization Safety Committee", IOM and CDC have been so unethical and corrupt, and that Congress does not have the guts to tackle this crisis. Tens of thousands of innocent children have been seriously harmed and families lives changed forever.
All three of my children were vaccine injured, but I was able to see through the BS, recognize vaccines causal role in their health problems, stop vaccinating and seek proper treatment using complimentary medicine (in spite of strong protest from my mainstream pediatricians who had nothing to offer other than "it's not the vaccines"). We have made tremendous progress.
It's tragic that most of the suffering could have been avoided if the CDC/IOM had taken the ethical course and addressed it head on, rather than try to hide any evidence of harm. Proper treatment options and research have not been funded. Instead, they have actually been blocked!
This whole situation is insane! Every year I think surely the tide is turning, but instead they just keep adding more and more immunizations to an already bloated schedule.
The CDC needs to be stripped of any control over the vaccine program! I am a healthcare worker who used to consider the CDC my "go-to source" of reliable medical information. Now, I just consider them a corrupt entity, and assume everything coming from them is untrue. They have no one but themselves to blame for their ruined reputation, and deserve to be replaced by an independent organization that will take public safety and ethical practices seriously again.

"It is nonsense to ignore associations of risk when they have not been shown to be incorrect."
Jim .. you are far too kind to the IOM when you accuse of them of "nonsense" .. a better description would be "criminal". After all .. at the very least .. deliberately exposing children to the KNOWN risks associated with mercury in vaccines .. fits the definition of "RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT OF A MINOR".
In addition .. clear and convincing evidence of further CRIMINAL conduct corrupting the "research" of mercury in vaccines .. culminated in the federal indictment of Dr. Poul Thorsen .. .. and .. those "un-named public health officials" who were also indicted .. who for some inexplicable reason .. remain a fugitives from justice.
It is long past time for all those employed by the FEDERAL JUSTICE SYSTEM to do THEIR JOB ..
