Update on Mercury in Vaccines
Waters & Kraus, the lead law firm in a consortium of law suits concerning thimerosol (mercury preservative) in vaccines and consequent neurological damage resulting in autism, just released its most recent bombshell Eli Lilly, as early as the 1930's, was apparently aware of the harmful nature of thimerosal in vaccines.
In an earlier press
release Waters & Kraus also revealed that the CDC withheld critical
evidence to the Institute of Medicine, instead supplying inconclusive
information which contributed to the IOM's (lack of) conclusions
regarding thimerosal in vaccines. These facts have only been obtained as a
result of the judicial discovery process and would not be known now were it not
for pending lawsuits.
In an earlier lawsuit, private letters were obtained documenting significant contributions made by vaccine manufacturers to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). This issue of conflict of interest between the AAP and vaccine manufacturers would probably still be unknown were it not for a lawsuit.
The cigarette companies played dumb and blind until lawsuits forced them to tell the truth. It would seem that the vaccine manufacturers have much in common with the cigarette companies if they, too, are not voluntarily revealing all they know.
If so, given the fact that
vaccines, unlike cigarettes, are recommended, even mandated - and because
parents have been convinced of their safety, they do not object to the
recommendations and mandates concerning their use - the situation is all that
What Else Do The Vaccine Manufacturers Know?
When will the medical profession, and in particular pediatricians, stop being complicit partners in this growing familial and societal nightmare? When will doctors start listening to the parents of vaccine-injured children and stop patronizing them and dismissing their concerns?
When will they begin to honor the
right of parents to determine what is best for their children? When will they
return to the precept of the Hippocratic Oath to "first do no harm"?
Since they can no longer be sued by patients for vaccine damage (only the government can go after doctors, and then only if a government vaccine-damage award has been made on the basis of medical negligence), why the resistance to acknowledging and reporting vaccine-associated reactions?
When will pediatricians begin to act as advocates for all their patients, including the vaccine-injured and those who choose not to vaccinate?
How much evidence do we, the public, need before we begin to object to what is happening to our children? When will we realize that until we stop automatically believing everything we are told, we, too, are responsible for the wrongs being done to our children?
When will we all begin to see how conflict of interest compromises everything that is allegedly "known" about vaccine safety?
When when will we begin to demand both our rights and the truth?
DR. MERCOLA'S COMMENT:
If you know someone who may have suffered a vaccine injury, please have them place a call to either Melissa Miles at (214) 357-6244 for media inquiries, or Victoria Gibson at (800) 226-9880 for client inquiries. They may also call the firms listed below for more information about class action lawsuits against the vaccine manufacturers.
It seems that one of the most effective strategies for ending this nightmare of autism caused by mercury and vaccines will be through legal actions. The drug companies need to be held responsible for selling products that may be causing damage.
The vaccine litigation wars are just beginning in the U.S. Numerous contaminated vaccine suits against manufacturers are already in progress in the UK.
If you are not yet aware of the connection between autism, mercury and vaccines, please read Dr. O'Shea's excellent review.
By age two, American children have received 237 micrograms of mercury through vaccines alone, which far exceeds current EPA "safe" levels of .1 mcg/kg. per day. That's one-tenth of a microgram, not one microgram.
Not all vaccines have mercury. It is put in as a preservative in the multi-use vials. So if, for whatever reason, you chose to give you child an immunization, please ask the doctor for the SINGLE use vial.
I would suggest watching him or the nurse actually drawing it up out of the vial and then actually asking for the vial to confirm that it is the single dose vial.
It is this mercury, and other vaccine side effects, that have contributed to the enormous rise in autism that has been experienced, not only in the US, but all over the world.
Day of birth: hepatitis B-12 mcg mercury:
30 x safe level
At 4 months: DTaP and HiB on same day - 50 mcg mercury:
60 x safe level
At 6 months: Hep B, Polio - 62.5 mcg mercury:
78 x safe level
At 15 months the child receives another 50 mcg:
41 x safe level
