Video interview: Kennedy: "Five of my six children got 22 vaccines. Beginning in 1989, that's the thimerosal generation--that 's the vaccine generation, and it's the sickest generation in the history of this country."
"It was removed from many of the pediatric vaccines in 2003, but the same year, the CDC added the flu vaccine which is loaded with mercury. And it's now being given in bolus doses to pregnant women and children in every year. Children today are getting almost the same amount of mercury--children who comply with the CDC schedule."
Regarding the credibility of the CDC, Kennedy said,
"All they have are these epidemiological studies that are very prone to 'fixing.' . . . I've shown them 500 studies that shows there is a link."
"The CDC is a troubled agency. It's an agency that has been captured by the industry it's supposed to regulate. . . . There are four separate federal studies, scathing federal studies by Congress, by the United States Senate, by the Inspector General of HHS, and last year by the Office of Research Integrity, that says CDC is off the rails. It has become captured by the vaccine industry. It is no longer protecting public health. It is protecting the profit margin of that industry.
"But you see these very well-respected public health officials getting up there and saying, 'There is no study. We have these nine studies.'"
A member of the Kennedy family stopped in Park City Monday night to lend his voice to the ongoing debate over vaccines and autism.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. attended a screening of a new documentary, "Trace Amounts." The film explores the theory that there is a link between Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and an ingredient in vaccines called thimerasol.
It's told through the eyes of the filmmaker, Eric Gladen, who said he suffered mercury poisoning after receiving a Tetanus shot in 2004.
"Thimerasol is a potent neurotoxin that is linked to all these neurological disorders that are now epidemic in American children," said Kennedy, who penned a book on the topic last year.
Thimerasol is a preservative that contains mercury. Between 1999 and 2001, it was removed or reduced to trace amounts in vaccines given to kids under the age of 6, but it still exists in the flu vaccine.
"If somebody can show me a single study, one study, if any of the doctors you've mentioned can show me a single study that shows that thimerasol is safe, I will go on Anderson Cooper and publicly apologize," Kennedy told FOX 13. "I challenge you. Find me one study." . . .
However, Kennedy argued research showed a 33 percent drop in the autism rate in Denmark after they eliminated the ingredient. Amidst the growing debate, he has found growing research he believes supports his argument.
"We compiled all the science on thimerasol, all that we could find. We found somewhere near 500 peer reviews and 1,400 references," Kennedy said. "We piled those studies on CDC's desk and said, 'Here are the studies that show this is destroying our children's brains.'"
These stories were excellent coverage. RFK Jr was able to call the credibility of the CDC into question during his interview by claiming that they're in bed with the vaccine industry. If we can't trust the agency charged with vaccine safety, why should we rely on THEIR SCIENCE?
I posted comments on both of them.
