This is what was said by RFK Jr at the National Press Club on Feb 15, 2017. He was specific about lack of any credible science supporting the use of mercury in vaccines. (This is totally different from what news sources are saying about this press conference.)
RFK, Jr.: “I read the science and I read it intensively, and I was immediately struck by the huge gulf between what the CDC and journalists were saying that science said and what the science actually said. And what I heard from journalists time and again, and it’s repeated like mantra, that the link between mercury—mercury is safe, that the science proves it’s safe, that the link between mercury in vaccines and neurodevelopmental disorders is non-existent.
“I want to show you the studies that CDC and journalists have said for years, don’t exist. These are 240 studies that show that—and they’re the best university scientists, by government scientists, by hospital scientists all over the world, that say that mercury is neurotoxic, that it’s causing damage to our children. [When you give it to laboratory animals] they develop autism-like symptoms or other neurodevelopmental disorders.
“These studies show that mercury is linked to the cascade of pediatric neurodevelopmental disorders that began hitting Americans in 1989. The children who born in 1989 were the sickest generation of children in the history of our country.
“CDC says one out of every six of those children has some type of neurodevelopmental disorder. Forty-three percent of them have a chronic disease, a neurodevelopmental, or a food allergy, asthma, eczema, diabetes, or an autoimmune disease. This is not normal. Forty-three percent of our children have a chronic disease, that is not normal. …1989, is the year that EPA says is the gateway year. That’s the year all of these epidemics began.
“We know this, that genes do not cause epidemics, you need an environmental toxin. So the question that journalists ought to be asking, instead of just parroting what CDC says is safety assurances: If it’s not the thimerosal in vaccines, then what is it? What is the toxin that touched every American demographic in 1989? …The fingerprint for that is mercury. …All of these things affect boys disproportionately to girls. …
“So CDC and journalists for many years have been parroting the assurances that no science exists that actually links mercury to these illnesses. …”
Kennedy explained that the 240 studies linking thimerosal to “non-autism neurological disorders” were readily available on PubMed.
“This pile is 81 studies that link thimerosal exposure to autism.
“And this is the pile that shows thimerosal is safe. Zero. Not one. None. None that even pretends to. So why is it that journalists have been telling us that there’s lots of science out there? Because they’re accepting the word of people at CDC.
“There are four separate federal studies that have painted CDC vaccine division as a cesspool of corruption. CDC is a vaccine company. It owns fifty-six vaccines. …The people who make decisions in that agency have also financial ties—and the inspector general at HHS found that up to 97 percent of the people making decisions about vaccine policy either own stock in vaccine companies or are otherwise financially entangled with the vaccine industry. …
“Calling CDC and saying, ‘Is Bobby Kennedy wrong about the science?’ does not prove anything. I can tell you what they’re going to say. That he’s wrong.
“But you journalists have a duty to do more than that. You have a duty to actually look and see what the science says yourself. But nobody has been willing to do this.”
