The decision facing parents around the world to vaccinate their children or not has taken a new turn with the Trump administration. With the appointment of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Chairman of the World Mercury Project, (WMP) https://worldmercuryproject.org/ being appointed to Chair a Commission on vaccinations, the debate is now more focused on the use of mercury, aka, thimerosal, as an adjuvant. According to the CDC website, “An adjuvant is a substance that is added to a vaccine to increase the body’s immune response to the vaccine. Vaccines containing adjuvants are tested for safety in clinical trials before they are licensed for use in the United States, and they are continuously monitored by CDC and FDA.”
A contradiction exists as the CDC proclaims a low acceptable level for mercury and warns pregnant women to avoid types of fish products that contain high levels. Yet, they allow mercury to be injected with vaccines.
Anti-vaccine websites claim the CDC and FDA have been infiltrated by the Vaccine industry and do not reflect the actual state of the research. Whistleblowers like Andrew Wakefield and more recently, Dr. William Thompson, a CDC scientist who is featured in the documentary film VAXXED, http://vaxxedthemovie.com/ have spoken out about the potentially harmful effect of adjuvants, relating them to increased cases of autism.
Joining Kennedy in the cause is actor Robert De Niro, who proposed to feature the movie VAXXED at his TRIBECA film festival, but was forced to pull the viewing.
In a letter addressed to the media, the two made some compelling points. “For example, in recent years, two federal reports by Congress and the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have criticized the CDC for the politicization of science and for corrupting conflicts of interest with the pharmaceutical industry. CDC’s senior vaccine scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC routinely manipulates data to conceal the links between vaccines and a host of neurological disorders. Some dozen other CDC scientists have since come forward to protest pervasive scientific fraud and research corruption at the CDC. Nevertheless, among American journalists, cult-like parroting of the CDC’s safety assurances has become a kind of lazy man’s science.”
Kennedy explained that the WMP would pay $100,000 to the first journalist, or another individual, who can find a peer-reviewed scientific study demonstrating that thimerosal is safe in the amounts contained in vaccines currently being administered to American children and pregnant women. Kennedy believes that even “a meager effort at homework” will expose that contention as unsupported by science. He says the science is unequivocal that Mercury is a serious health hazard and exposure is linked to many different diseases and conditions (ADHD/ADD, Alzheimer’s and dementia, Acrodynia (pink disease) and Autism spectrum disorders). Even studies listed by the CDC on its website, to exonerate thimerosal as an autism culprit, link thimerosal exposure to low IQ, diminished language and motor skills, and tics, a family of neurological disorders that includes Tourette Syndrome.
