Pediatricians Want to Keep Thimerosal in Vaccines Despite Health Risks
December 18, 2012
The American Academy of Pediatrics (APP) has released a statement in favor of Thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative that is detrimental to the health of everyone who is vaccinated.
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the APP are collaborating to say that Thimerosal should not be banned as an ingredient in vaccines in the US as well as a proposed banning of the toxin coming from the United Nations.
Dr. Louis Cooper from Columbia University states that research shows that Thimerosal does cause harm to children.
In 2004, the US Institute of Medicine conducted a safety review that found no evidence was viable to state that Thimerosal is connected to the soaring incidents of autism. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concurred with this finding in a study released in 2010.
Thimerosal is ethyl mercury that has dramatic toxic effects against the health of the human body. The UN Environmental Program (UNEP) has listed mercury as a global health hazard. The UNEP would like to see a treaty that protects against Thimerosal be created.
The Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs have provided the UNEP with researched evidence that outlines without dispute that Thimerosal is dangerous to the human body from exposure in vaccines and dental fillings that contain mercury-based silver amalgam. With this research, the UNEP has a plan to phase out Thimerosal because of its attachment to neurological disorders, autism and other health disorders.
WHO stated earlier this year that they would consider replacing Thimerosal, before completely changing their minds and supporting the use of this mercury-based preservative which is known to be highly toxic. This would save 84 million children in under-developed nations that are exposed to Thimerosal through vaccine initiatives propagated by the UN and WHO.
Dr. Walter Orenstein, associate director of the Emony Vaccine Center at Emony University decries that in nearly 2 decades of research there is no conclusive “evidence of significant harm . . . from use of thimerosal in vaccines.”
The EVC is affiliated with other interested groups that would benefit from keeping a mercury-based preservative in vaccines such as:
• AVAC, funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
• National Institutes of Health
Orestein asserts: “Reducing mercury exposure is a wonderful thing. [However], we need this exception because thimerosal is so vital for protecting children.”
Propaganda studies have suggested that children of mothers who had two or more instances of flu had a doubled-risk of being diagnosed with autism prior to the age of 3; as well as simply having a fever. Also attributed to the development of autism in children were the uses of a pharmaceutical grade anti-biotic during pregnancy.
This study gives governmental agencies like the CDC an excuse to disregard scientific data correlating autism to the use of mercury-based preservatives like Thimerosal to the onset of autism. Other alarmist researchers claim these findings are “noteworthy” because of the extensive range of mother and children interviewed. The fact that the conclusions are bogus does not register with these so-called experts.
In 1997, a study which proved the link between autism and vaccines was irgnored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and suppressed by the CDC.
Laura Hewitson, Ph.D. and lead researcher, studied macaque monkeys that were given the exact same MMR vaccine as children in 1994 – 1999. The results entitled “Influence of pediatric vaccines on amydgala growth and opioid ligand binding in rhesus macaque infants: A pilot study” were published in Acta Neurobiological Experiments in 2010. This vaccine has the mercury based preservative Thimerosal.
Hewitson discovered that: “Vaccine-exposed and saline-injected control infants [monkeys] underwent MRI and PET imaging at approximately 4 and 6 months of age, representing two specific timeframes within the vaccination schedule . . . These results suggest that maturational changes in amygdala volume and the binding capacity of [11C]DPN in the amygdala was significantly altered in infant macaques receiving the vaccine schedule.”
The research paper documented that there were significant biological changes and altered behaviors that occurred in the vaccinated monkeys that were identical to children diagnosed with ASD (autism).
Sufferers of autism develop a broad spectrum of symptoms ranging from:
• Mild social awkwardness
• Asperger’s syndrome
• Profound mental retardation
• Debilitating repetitive behaviors
• Inability to communicate
The unvaccinated monkey exhibited no changes or symptoms whatsoever.
In 2003, a study came out of Denmark that showed that when doctors stopped using vaccines that contained the mercury-based Thimerosal, the incidents of autism began to dramatically reduce. When the study was published by the CDC, the agency changed the findings to say that the removal of Thimerosal was actually the direct cause of the rising autism rates.
The authors of the study contacted the CDC, regarding their change without the express permission of the authors prior to publication. An investigation concluded that the editors of the Journal were coerced by the CDC to print the revised data.
