Robert Kennedy Is Right Slate Magazine Is Out To Lunch

Lyn RFKLyn Redwood wrote this post on the Safeminds website. For those of you who do not know who Lyn is, her son is what I would consider "Child Zero" for Thimerosal/mercury poisoning.  Lyn is a nurse, a lone voice of reason on IACC and one of the first people to ask about mercury in vaccines back in the 1990s - and count the micrograms - and having realize there were hundreds of mcgs in the pediatric scheduke, sounding the alarm bell.   A bell that CDC, AAP, AMA, Slate, Wired, Washington Post, New York Times, LA Times, Paul Offit, Nancy Snyderman, Dorit Reiss and so many others can  NOT UNRING.  We all owe Lyn a debt of gratitude for pursuing medical safety for our kids and ourselves (flu shots contain mercury).

Several months ago I received a call on my cell from a number I didn’t recognize. Usually I let such Thimerosal RFK calls go to voice mail but for some reason I picked it up. A friendly raspy voice alleging to be Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. requested to speak to me. At first I thought it was a hoax. But after a few seconds I recognized the voice from the Ring of Fire talk radio program and realized this was not a prank.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. was calling to invite me to attend a high profile meeting that he had arranged with U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and officials from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to discuss the continued use of thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative, in vaccines.

He also asked if I would be willing to read a research paper that he had commissioned reviewing the science regarding thimerosal, and to accompany him on a meeting with colleagues to call on select members of Congress for help.

I was more than glad to help out. I have spent the last 15 years of my life researching mercury. I have been involved in countless meetings with high levels officials at the CDC, the FDA, the NIH, and the HHS urging them to remove thimerosal from all medical products, including vaccines. I was honored to be a part of this effort and to work with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to protect other children from what happened to my son over 20 years ago.

My son’s story: poisoned by mercury

When he was born, my son weighed close to 9 lbs. He was a happy baby who ate and slept well, smiled, cooed, walked, and talked all by one year. But shortly after his first birthday, my son began to regress physically and developmentally, losing speech, eye contact, and social interactions. He no longer slept through the night and suddenly refused to eat foods that he had previously enjoyed, gagging and spitting them out. He started suffering bouts of bloody diarrhea.

My once active happy baby now only wanted to sit and watch Disney’s Fox and the Hound over and over for hours. After multiple evaluations he was initially diagnosed with a global receptive and expressive speech delay and later with autism.

I am a nurse. My husband is a doctor. We would have never made a correlation between our son’s illnesses and vaccines. But in July 1999 I read that a preservative, thimerosal, utilized in some infant vaccines actually contained 49.6% ethylmercury. According to a joint statement released by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Public Health Service, the FDA had determined that:

“infants who received thimerosal-containing vaccines at several visits may be exposed to more mercury than recommended by Federal Guidelines for total mercury exposure.”

I quickly pulled out the thick file containing my son’s medical records.

My worst fears were confirmed.

All of my son’s early vaccines had contained thimerosal.

I'm looking forward to seeing a centralized list of ALL the medications and products the various forms of mercury are being used in, as mentioned in the complete article. I'd like to be well-informed enough to avoid them all.

Mercury in vaccines - part of the reason why the issue of vaccine safety simply won't go away. Mercury is still used in some flu shots, tetanus, and meningitis vaccines. “To me, it’s a no-brainer. Why would you put a neurotoxin in vaccines?” said Martha Herbert, a pediatric neurologist at Harvard University. Many reasonable folks wonder the same.

Along with… why does the CDC refuse to state a preference for mercury-free vaccines? Manufacturers are waiting to make them with alternative preservatives. Some also wonder, why does CDC recommend:
• that healthy pregnant women get a mercury-containing vaccine?
• that healthy infants get a mercury-containing vaccine not once, but 2Xs before they turn 1 year old?
• that infants then receive a mercury-containing shot every year throughout childhood?

The CDC must have forgotten mercury is the most potent neurotoxin on earth and also accumulates in human tissues. The CDC must have forgotten American children.

But Kennedy and Redwood have not forgotten. The pair remain among the bravest people on earth. “I have the ability to push this over the finish line. I know I do. The truth will prevail.” Thank you Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.,and thank you Lyn Redwood, for dogging our health officials - take out mercury. Bring back trust.

I was poisoned by mercury off gassing from dental amalgam silver fillings. The FDA is unconscionable in protecting industry over patients. To learn more, see Www.hiddenriverhealthchallenge.blogspot.com. It is time to end its use in the US.

Anne J.

Thank you for speaking up!
When this horrible chapter in American medical history is over, people will look back and wonder what took so long to figure out that injecting neurotoxins into infants was a very bad idea!

Katie Wright

Thank you Lyn Redwood and Bobby Kennedy.

Two courageous and selfless heroes in the autism immunity.

Jeannette Bishop

Thank you to Lyn Redwood and John F. Kennedy, Jr. for all your efforts to make the vaccine program safer. Also, it's good to hear how well Will is doing.

Here's what we did.....
1. Pay for heavy metal tests from a good lab. 2. Take the tests to doctors. 3. Demand treatment. 4. When they say no. Tell them you will sue for negligence. 5. They will have to prove that your child doesn't have mercury poisoning and order their own tests. 6. When the tests come to be positive.... twice in our case... they have to cover you. BTDT. :)

Our child was language delayed with health issues...Not autism. We were lucky. Let it be known that how we chose to proceed was greatly spearheaded by RFKs article about thimerosal years ago. He included language delay, and that is how I happened upon it. We are grateful to him. You rock RFK! Somebody tell him thanks from us. :)

Skewed data from start to finish ..roll in the trolls with the non-science...


John Stone

From the longer article:

"During the Kennedy meeting at HHS, one HHS official remarked that vaccines without thimerosal were not as effective as those with thimerosal, which was an interesting comment. What the official was actually acknowledging was that thimerosal was capable of increasing the immune response, which means this mercury-based preservative is also being used as an adjuvant agent in vaccines for which it is not licensed."

Noting this from Pub Med:

Immunosuppressive and autoimmune effects of thimerosal in mice.
Havarinasab S1, Häggqvist B, Björn E, Pollard KM, Hultman P.
Author information

The possible health effects of the organic mercury compound thimerosal (ethylmercurithiosalicylate), which is rapidly metabolized to ethylmercury (EtHg), have recently been much debated and the effect of this compound on the immune system is largely unknown. We therefore studied the effect of thimerosal by treating A.SW (H-2s) mice, susceptible to induction of autoimmunity by heavy metals, with 10 mg thimerosal/L drinking water (internal dose ca 590 microg Hg/kg body weight/day) for up to 30 days. The lymph node expression of IL-2 and IL-15 mRNA was increased after 2 days, and of IL-4 and IFN-gamma mRNA after 6 and 14 days. During the first 14 days treatment, the number of splenocytes, including T and B cells as well as Ig-secreting cells decreased. A strong immunostimulation superseded after 30 days treatment with increase in splenic weight, number of splenocytes including T and B cells and Ig-secreting cells, and Th2- as well as Th-1-dependent serum immunoglobulins. Antinucleolar antibodies (ANoA) targeting the 34-kDa nucleolar protein fibrillarin, and systemic immune-complex deposits developed. The H-2s strains SJL and B10.S also responded to thimerosal treatment with ANoA. The A.TL and B10.TL strain, sharing background genes with the A.SW and B10.S strain, respectively, but with a different H-2 haplotype (t1), did not develop ANoA, linking the susceptibility to H-2. Thimerosal-treated H-2s mice homozygous for the nu mutation (SJL-nu/nu), or lacking the T-cell co-stimulatory molecule CD28 (B10.S-CD28-/-), did not develop ANoA, which showed that the autoimmune response is T-cell dependent. Using H-2s strains with targeted mutations, we found that IFN-gamma and IL-6, but not IL-4, is important for induction of ANoA by thimerosal. The maximum added renal concentration of thimerosal (EtHg) and inorganic mercury occurred after 14 days treatment and was 81 microg Hg/g. EtHg made up 59% and inorganic mercury 41% of the renal mercury. In conclusion, the organic mercury compound thimerosal (EtHg) has initial immunosuppressive effects similar to those of MeHg. However, in contrast to MeHg, thimerosal treatment leads in genetically susceptible mice to a second phase with strong immunostimulation and autoimmunity, which is T-cell dependent, H-2 linked and may at least partly be due to the inorganic mercury derived from the metabolism of ethyl mercury.

And worldwide we as parents of vaccine damaged kids/adults all have more or less the same tale to tell...but as always the parents know nothing...
