“…Despite overwhelming evidence that MERCURY in vaccines containing thimerosal contributes largely to neurodevelopmental disorders in children, health authorities and medical specialty societies (such as the CDC, FDA, Public Health Department, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Family Physicians) continue to promote vaccines that use thimerosal.

“The flu vaccine still contains a FULL QUANTITY OF MERCURY—12.5 ug for the pediatric dose and 25.5 ug for the adult dose. Yet health authorities have promoted flu vaccination for all children between the ages of 6 and 18 months—and they recently included all children between 5 and 18 years old. Worse still, they are pushing heavily for flu vaccination for all pregnant women.”

“Studies show that MERCURY in a pregnant woman’s blood is concentrated in the placenta, leaving the baby’s level 70% higher than that of the mother. We know the mother is getting a full adult dose of 25.5 ug of MERCURY from the vaccine. But remember: Manufacturers recommend that first-time recipients of the flu vaccine get TWO doses—that’s 51 ug of MERCURY for the mother and EVEN MORE for her tiny baby.”

“The real shock comes when you hear the EPA announcing how studies from 1999 through 2000 found that some 630,000 newborn babies had unsafe MERCURY levels in their blood. While researchers blame coal-burning power plants, studies show that the top three sources are dental amalgam, contaminated seafoods and ? VACCINATIONS.

“While they draft plans to reduce mercury emissions from coal-burning plants, they nullify any good it might do as they simultaneously promote pumping millions of children full of MERCURY-containing flu vaccines every year.”


Aluminum and the Brain

“MERCURY might get more attention, but another metal found in most vaccines is getting much deserved consideration from researchers. It’s ALUMINUM. And it is added to vaccines as an adjuvant—an additive used to boost immune reactions… Like mercury, ALUMINUM is known to be a powerful brain toxin, especially during this vital organ’s initial development. And its link to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Lou Gehrig’s disease continues to gain credence.”

“ALUMINUM appears to poison a number of critical enzymes in cells by:

  • INTERFERING WITH BRAIN CELL NEUROTUBULE (structural) FUNCTION
  • TRIGGERING EXCITOTOXICITY (as with mercury it causes overstimulation of brain cells resulting in cell death) AND CHRONICALLY ACTIVATING THE BRAIN’S IMMUNE SYSTEM (as does mercury), WHICH CAUSES DAMAGE.”
