Andrew Wakefield Speaks on Project TENDR Pediatric Health Risk Assessment

Andy Santa Monica Candle
By Anne Dachel

Top researchers—all respected scientists—are saying that we are poisoning the brains of our children with the industrial/consumer products that they are exposed to everyday. Consensus Statement HERE.

Take note of the chilling words: “The vast majority of chemicals in industrial and consumer products undergo almost no testing for neurotoxicity or other health effects." While they don’t talk about vaccines, the same thing is true when we talk about the neurotoxic effects of the chemicals and combined viruses we use in vaccines—they have not been studied.

Dr. Wakefield announced the publication of this consensus statement at the 2nd Annual Health Freedom Rally and Candlelight Vigil at City Hall, in Santa Monica, Califiornia on July 1st, 2016.

Andy was introduced by Wendy Silvers, Founder, MillionMamasMovement. He began his brief talk by asking who in the audience had NOT seen “VaxXed.”

He continued:

“There are times in history when change occurs, there are times when change becomes inevitable, when change becomes unstoppable. The camera rolls and the world bears witness. A single voice cries out against the many voices of corruption and is heard. A time when the government sells the lives of your children to corporations in order to line their pockets.

“That time has come. That time is now. We must make that time, now you must make that time now.

“In ‘VaxXed’ the camera rolled and the world is bearing witness. ‘VaxXed’ brought you the single voice, the lone voice of Dr. William Thompson, and that is changing everything. He is silencing the lies and the corruption of all those who have gone before.

“So now is the time. Now is the time to overthrow the corporate rule of this country and to bring the power back to the people.

“I want to share with you one thing, amazing news that came through this morning. I just want to read this to you.

‘An unprecedented alliance of leading scientists, health professionals, and children’s health advocates agreed for the first time that today’s scientific evidence supports a link between exposure to toxic chemicals in food, air, and everyday products, and children’s risk for neurodevelopmental disorders. The alliance, known as Project TENDR, is calling for immediate action to significantly reduce exposure to toxic chemicals to protest brain development for today’s and tomorrow’s children.’

“And let me just add a caveat to that. In this article, they talk about mercury, they talk about pharmaceuticals, they come within a hair’s breath of saying what you have known all along, of saying vaccines. You and I know because we’ve witnessed this for twenty or more years, and that is where this is going. And they know it. The people that wrote this paper wrote it in large part because they do not want to end up on the wrong side of history.

This is something that you have known for a very, very long time, and you have been telling them And kicking and screaming, they have now been brought to the table and decided that it’s politic, that it’s scientifically the correct time to get onboard and say what? That this is what we believe. Will they say that parents were right all along?

“No, they won’t. No they won’t, because that would be an indictment of them. But believe you me, this is being written because many NIH scientists, EPA scientists on here do not want to end up on the wrong side of history.

“But believe me, I will not let them forget where they stood. I will not let these agencies forget where they stood barely one year ago. They do not absolve their consciences that easily. All of this has been known during the writing and the passage of this insidious and most dangerous bill, SB277.  And it must be destroyed for the children of California and the children of the world.”

America has been warned. We must take immediate action. We cannot say that known neurotoxins in vaccines have been exonerated. Like all these other products allowed by government oversight agencies, vaccines have not been thoroughly studied. THIS HAS TO BE A MAJOR ISSUE IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

No foreign enemy has ever done to our country what we are doing to ourselves, and time is running out. People have to be held accountable. We can no longer sit back and call this "better diagnosing."

From the Consensus Statement:

July 1, 2016 EHP – Project TENDR: Targeting Environmental Neuro-Developmental Risks. The TENDR

SUMMARY: Children in America today are at an unacceptably high risk of developing neurodevelopmental disorders that affect the brain and nervous system including autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, intellectual disabilities, and other learning and behavioral disabilities. These are complex disorders with multiple causes—genetic, social, and environmental. The contribution of toxic chemicals to these disorders can be prevented.

APPROACH: Leading scientific and medical experts, along with children’s health advocates, came together in 2015 under the auspices of Project TENDR: Targeting Environmental Neuro-Developmental Risks to issue a call to action to reduce widespread exposures to chemicals that interfere with fetal and children’s brain development. Based on the available scientific evidence, the TENDR authors have identified prime examples of toxic chemicals and pollutants that increase children’s risks for neurodevelopmental disorders. These include chemicals that are used extensively in consumer products and that have become widespread in the environment. Some are chemicals to which children and pregnant women are regularly exposed, and they are detected in the bodies of virtually all Americans in national surveys conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The vast majority of chemicals in industrial and consumer products undergo almost no testing for developmental neurotoxicity or other health effects.

CONCLUSION: Based on these findings, we assert that the current system in the United States for evaluating scientific evidence and making health-based decisions about environmental chemicals is fundamentally broken. To help reduce the unacceptably high prevalence of neurodevelopmental disorders in our children, we must eliminate or significantly reduce exposures to chemicals that contribute to these conditions. We must adopt a new framework for assessing chemicals that have the potential to disrupt brain development and prevent the use of those that may pose a risk. This consensus statement lays the foundation for developing recommendations to monitor, assess, and reduce exposures to neurotoxic chemicals. These measures are urgently needed if we are to protect healthy brain development so that current and future generations can reach their fullest potential.

@Grace Green:

"Kevin Galalae. Never heard of him before but agree with every word he says in this video. I seem to remember someone else who came from a place of that name and also spoke a lot of truth."

YES, ma'am! You are right on the mark.

Grace Green

Linda1. Kevin Galalae. Never heard of him before but agree with every word he says in this video. I seem to remember someone else who came from a place of that name and also spoke a lot of truth.


So... I checked it out and Dr. Richard Pan was an "educator" at UC Davis. Irva Hertz Picciotto out of UC Davis will be one of the leaders of TENDR. I looked to see if UC Davis came out in favor of sb277 and couldn't find it. There were rumors that UC Davis was highly indebted to pharmaceutical money, but generally I think it was the profound disappointment of the MIND Institute that at one time held so much hope that someone would finally solve the autism riddle and come to the rescue of the millions of suffering children and their families... Is TENDR going to be another MIND Institute and produce a couple of key points that will more or less be ignored. I think the MIND institute did the primate studies that now serves as a reason for a medical exemption--mother's with autoimmune antibodies are more prone to give birth to autistic babies. So autoimmune disorder in the mother is suppose to be a reason for a medical exemption. Thanks to the MIND Institute for that....


I'm bothered that the John Merck Foundation is helping fund TENDR. I looked it up. John Merck was the son of the famous pharmaceutical CEO of Merck. So doesn't that just about eliminate any honest discussion about vaccines as environmental toxins. Will this just be another group of people who get together and discuss everything but the elephant sitting in the room. Plus it's led out of UC Davis. UC Davis was at least partially complicit in sb 277, if I remember correctly. If UC Davis had cared anything about the children of California it could have come out a long time ago and made a meaningful statement about toxins in vaccines, the vaccine schedule...etc. This all vaguely reminds me of Congressman Henry Waxman who was an excellent gatekeeper. If Waxman was heading an investigation it was bound to be a cover-up. Remember all the missing funds in Iraq that went to contractors. Waxman was in charge of that. All those Congressional Hearings on reform of the vaccine court.... where ever his name appeared, you could nearly guarantee nothing would happen.



I've never heard of, nor seen this person speak, before, but what he's saying is the truth. I watched this video and will watch it again. I was numb when I finished viewing this video the first time. He is articulate, and does not waiver in his speech.

My father told me a long time ago, that the world in which we live is nothing more than good versus evil. During this past decade, my family has been confronted by forces out there which completely destroyed whatever illusions I had formerly had, about the world in which I live. Try as I might, I will never, ever be able to go back and undo what has been shown and told to my family.

People say they want truth, but what I have learned about truth is that it is not always what you would like it to be. I tend to be more the idealist; my husband, the born cynic. Not a great combo at times, but we have both had to rearrange our preconceived notions about this world after these events have turned our family's lives upside down and sideways.

I hope all who see your link will watch this video.

...and as Del said in that wonderful speech of his, BE BRAVE.

"Statement: We are now officially at war"

And the very same news outlets that report on the studies showing toxic chemicals are damaging kids, including making them autistic, will happily quote CDC officials who say it's all "better diagnosing" each time the numbers go up.


There soon won't be a healthy child left in America and yet the lies never stop.

"An unprecedented alliance of leading scientists, health professionals, and children’s health advocates agreed for the first time that today’s scientific evidence supports a link between exposure to toxic chemicals in food, air, and everyday products, and children’s risk for neurodevelopmental disorders."

Those links have been in the literature for decades, and they go well beyond chemicals.

"Further, toxicological studies and regulatory evaluation seldom address combined effects of chemical mixtures, despite evidence that all people are exposed to dozens of chemicals at any given time...... cumulative effects resulting from combined exposures to multiple toxic chemicals and stressors,"

This document, while well-meaning, downplays the enormity of the problem. First, how good is the data reported in the literature, even for short-term effects? We know the answer for vaccines; why would we believe it is any different for other products that have large and powerful industries covering their backs?

Second, what do we do about adverse chemical impacts that are not reported in the literature? We know from vaccine studies, wireless radiation studies, that much good research goes unreported, since it does not come to the conclusions desired by journal Editors and the corporate/government sponsors.

Third, how could we possibly address the full spectrum of combined effects that could result in damage? The numbers of combinations of potentially toxic stimuli are combinatorial, and the numbers of experiments/trials required would be astronomical. Small numbers of combinations might provide very misleading results. Yet, exposures to combinations of potentially toxic stimuli are what we face in the real world.

Fourth, addressing long-term safety impacts puts the problem out of reach. As I have shown by some recent postings, peri-natal or even pre-natal exposures of potentially toxic stimuli, or combinations of stimuli, can have serious consequences that evidence themselves much later in life. If we are concerned about such long latency effects, then we would have to conduct studies in humans on the order of SIX OR SEVEN DECADES!!! This is completely incongruous with a society whose attention span is on the order of seconds!

For so many experts to say our consumerism is harming children like the Consensus Statement does is very important, but I fully expect nothing will be done.

The CDC is not going to take notice. They've never talked about an epidemic of autistic/neurologically disabled children as anything more than a "serious public health concern." (I know this because I've been following their statements for almost two decades.)

The FDA will want it to go away because they're implicated big time.

This report is not something that reinforces people's trust in government. Aren't we supposed to have officials protecting us from toxic chemicals? This indicates something is very, very wrong. I noticed that coverage is very limited. Several places in the UK talked about it. CNN was the only major network that has reported it--and not on the air, only on their website. The NYT ran it, but it was over a long holiday weekend where a lot fewer people were paying attention to the news. had a piece about how things are going to get better because Obama signed new chemical safety legislation.

Other than these few sites, no one is reporting this or what it means for our future. It's a story destined to die.

And the reason I say this is because we've known for a long time that something is terribly wrong with the health of our children.

We have to make this a campaign issue. The candidates, on their own, won't do it. I think this was published on the Friday before the 4th of July weekend in order TO MAKE IT PUBLIC, but then have it go away. Someday when this issue is a national emergency, lots of people are positioning themselves to be able to say--"We told you it was bad."

So "broken," they don't dare even mention the most potent vector of exposure. I wouldn't apply the term "broken" though. It's like saying a mafia "protection" racket is broken.

Bob Moffit

Andy: “But believe me, I will not let them forget where they stood. I will not let these agencies forget where they stood barely one year ago. They do not absolve their consciences that easily"

Amen to that. Never forgive nor forget. Consider ....

The Academy Award winning film "Spotlight" .. about the sexual abuse of children .. a scandal that revealed the ABJECT FAILURE .. of Boston's Catholic church's hierarchy .. aided and abetted with the complicity of Boston's media and law enforcement agencies .. who willfully stayed silent .. refusing to believe and pursue allegations that parents and children had been reporting for decades.

The repercussions emanating from this single film are still reverberating throughout the world .. the damage done to the reputation of the Catholic Church irreparable.

Let's hope VAXXED does the same to the SACRED VACCINE INDUSTRY.
