complete reversal of their 1999 position that the toxic

Thimerosal be removed from
vaccines, the American Academy of Pediatrics now
advocates that Thimerosal be put back in.
joint recommendation with the U.S. Public Health Service in
1999, the AAP stated their position was that thimerosal should be
removed from all vaccines except the seasonal flu shot, due to the
possibility that the preservative was responsible for neuro-developmental
disorders and other adverse health effects. The FDA
subsequently followed the recommendations of the AAP.
However, the AAP has been on a steady march toward greater
solidarity with Big Pharma and the medical establishment in recent
years. For instance, AAP has already recommended that
boys should be given the HPV vaccine, despite the fact that they
do not have a cervix, and that young children should receive
cholesterol screenings, a massive boon to the statin industry.
The AAP has also curiously recommended
sugary and additive-filled sports drinks for children, while at
the same time maintaining that organic food
does not have any more health benefits than the pesticide-ridden
genetically modified mass that passes for food on the plates of most
With its recent recommendation regarding thimerosal, the AAP has
firmly aligned itself with the interests of Big Pharma and the
medical establishment over the concerns of the welfare of children.
The AAP position was made clear when the organization
endorsed the World Health Organization (WHO) report issued as a
result of the June 2012 GAVCS meeting.
WHO statement suggests that researchers evaluated the,
“most recently available information
concerning the safety of thimerosal since it last reviewed this
topic in 2008.”
The conclusion, of course, was that
thimerosal does not cause neuro-developmental disorders and that the
mercury-laden preservative is completely safe for use in vaccines.
Interestingly enough, the WHO comes to
this conclusion even while the UN Environmental Program is currently
working on a treaty to reduce health risks by banning or
minimizing the use of certain products that release mercury into the
environment – particularly, vaccines that contain thimerosal.
Nevertheless, the WHO report concludes,
Based on the current evidence, GACVS
considers that no additional studies of the safety of thiomersal
in vaccines are warranted and that available evidence strongly
supports the safety of the use of thiomersal as a preservative
for inactivated vaccines.
GACVS believes that consideration of
additional evidence suggestive of the contrary should be based
on studies using the same high standards of epidemiological and
causal inference needed for scientific research.
Thiomersal allows millions of people
worldwide to have access to life-saving vaccines and to date, no
other safer and equally efficacious alternative has been
identified for many vaccines.
In other words, it is the position of
the WHO and, subsequently, the AAP, that thimerosal is safe and any
further studies are essentially purposeless. The decision has been
Yet, while the WHO and the AAP seem content to push forward
proclamations regarding obviously toxic chemicals, the fact is that
reality does not shift and contort itself to the wishes of
international bureaucrats and agents of the pharmaceutical cartel.
As I have written on at least two occasions, the fact that
mercury, especially the type used in vaccines, is hazardous to human
health is established fact. Even the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) recognizes this and has set the toxicity limit of mercury at
.1mcg. However, the annual flu shot contains as much as 25 mcg by
virtue of the Thimerosal preservative.
250 times higher than the limit of toxicity set by the EPA.
Nevertheless, the WHO claims that it reviewed a number of studies
conducted since 2008 that pointed to the dangers of thimerosal-containing
Predictably, the WHO claims that all of these studies were either
disproven or were “methodologically flawed.”
Of course, the WHO does not mention that, out of its thousands of
studies “proving” the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, not one
of them has ever actually proven this assertion that was not
connected to a vaccine maker or a pharmaceutical firm. Apparently,
such blatant conflict of interest is not considered a methodological
flaw in the minds of vaccine pushers.
Clearly, the dangers of mercury exposure are legion, particularly
when applied to young children. The adverse health effects related
to mercury exposure are
detrimental to brain function is not up for debate.
Even studies published in medical journals such as Pediatrics
demonstrate the clear danger of mercury exposure and the harmful
effects on the brain.
For instance, in the report entitled, “Technical
Report: Mercury in the Environment - Implications for Pediatricians,”
the authors wrote,
The developing fetus and young
children are thought to be disproportionately affected by
mercury exposure, because many aspects of development,
particularly brain maturation, can be disturbed by the presence
Minimizing mercury exposure is, therefore, essential
to optimal child health.
Incredibly, even after publishing
material clearly establishing the risks of mercury exposure, the
American Academy of Pediatrics is endorsing the return of mercury
into vaccines, particularly those that will be used in young
If there is any doubt that the medical
Big Pharma, and the vaccine cartels are one in the
same in terms of ideology, that doubt is easily erased simply by
examining the contradictory opinions presented by organizations like
