Thimerosal (50% ethyl mercury) was removed from most pediatric vaccines in 1999-2004 but still remains in the multidose flu vaccine which is given to pregnant women and infants. Mercury is a powerful neurotoxin which causes brain damage and autism. Why are we doing this?
In the ubiquitous Geico commercial, one person says “Did you know that 15 minutes can save you 15% on auto insurance?” The other person says “Everybody knows that.” Why does everybody know that? Because we've all seen it hundreds of times on TV. How many times have you heard or read “Vaccines don't cause autism?” It is the big lie and it is repeated so often by so many “experts” that people think it must be true. The scientific studies that make it true are all fraudulent studies funded by the vaccine industry. These studies are bought and paid for and the data is manipulated so they get what they want. Now they are saying that there are not two sides to this controversy. The science has been done. The results are in. Vaccines don't cause autism(for the millionth time). Which do you think would be more likely to reveal the truth: (1) Vaccine industry funded studies or (2) independent studies that are not funded by the vaccine industry? If you picked #2, you would be correct but those studies are routinely denigrated and ignored. Mainstream media consistently supports the vaccine industry position so that is all you hear unless you actively seek out the other side of this issue.
Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak is a recent book by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. The independent studies on thimerosal are presented and they clearly show how dangerous and damaging thimerosal is. So again, why are we still injecting this powerful neurotoxin into pregnant women(where it also gets to the brain of the fetus) and infants. It doesn't make sense to keep doing this. It is stupid to keep doing this. It only makes sense in two ways: (1) if you deny that it is a problem(obviously wrong) (2) to maximize profits for the vaccine industry which doesn't want to go to the expense of removing it.
You probably get angry when you are ripped off or swindled. We are all being manipulated in very sophisticated ways these days and this is one of the ways we are deceived. The epidemic of autism is real and vaccines cause most of the autism that is now being diagnosed in 1 out of 50 children is the U.S. The vaccine industry will continue to get away with this until enough people wise up and demand that vaccines be made safer. Congress needs to act to get the control of vaccines out of the hands of those who profit from them and get it under the control of a completely independent agency. Vaccine safety should be the primary goal.
Don't continue to be deceived. You can find Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak at your local library or you can buy it at amazon.com. Another excellent resource is the brand new book Vaccines 2.0. It grades each of the 16 recommended vaccines individually and provides information on safer alternative vaccine schedules and vaccine exemptions in each state. Don't let the vaccine industry damage your children or grandchildren. Seek out the truth to help them have a healthier life.
