Panel: All children should receive flu shotsContra Costa Times, CA
By Barbara Feder Ostrov

Dear Barbara,

I read your story about the new ACIP recommendation that all schoolchildren receive the flu vaccine annually because, as Dr. Roger Baxter says, epidemics "begin at school."

Any concerns parents might have about the risk from exposure to mercury in the flu vaccine is dismissed. We're told, "Some parents may be concerned about thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative present in some adult flu vaccines that long has been rumored to cause autism. However, Baxter said that the preservative is safe and that extensive scientific research has not found any link between thimerosal and autism."

Members of the autism community reading this would be quick to point out that it's wrong on several counts.

We're often told in the press that only "some parents" worry about exposing children to mercury in their vaccines. This implies that no one with scientific or medical credentials would feel the same way. This is totally false.

Do a search for Dr. Boyd Haley, University of Kentucky, Dr. Mady Hornig, Columbia University, Dr. Thomas Burbacher, University of Washington; Dr. Mark Geier, President of The Genetic Centers of America and David Geier, Vice President of The Institute of Chronic Illnesses, and Dr. Jill James, University of Arkansas. They are just a handful of the independent scientists whose work links vaccines to neurological damage in our children.

Research on vaccines can also be found on this link:

The National Autism Association has said that while officials continue to claim that there is no science linking vaccines to autism, many peer-reviewed published studies confirm the link between vaccinations and neurological injuries.

We're talking about the second deadliest element on Earth and a known neurotoxin. I wonder how willing the pubic would accept the claim that it's safe to inject mercury into children if they knew about the history of thimerosal.

Thimerosal goes back 75 years. It was invented and tested Eli Lilly Pharmaceutical Company in 1930. The one study done on thimerosal was done by Eli Lilly on 22 adult patients suffering from meningitis. There was no chance for follow-up to observe long-term effects, as all of the patients died. Even if follow-up had been possible, damage to the developing brains of very young children would have remained an unknown. Eli Lilly said it was safe and the medical community just accepted it. After the creation of the FDA, its use was simply continued. This unconscionable oversight failure should call any safety claim into question.

In his book, Evidence of Harm, journalist David Kirby points out that "...many researchers had sent the company documents dating back to the 1930's, each raising a red flag about thimerosal." (EOH 207-209). Mr. Kirby chronologically lists over 70 years of scientific research on the damaging and deadly effects of thimerosal that was willfully ignored by Eli Lilly and the CDC.http://www.evidence Our CDC and FDA should be utterly embarrassed to make safety claims based on such a pathetic history of oversight.

In addition, back in 1991, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, one of the top vaccinologists in the world, wrote a memo to the president of Merck Pharmaceutical Co. warning about the high mercury levels children were receiving in their vaccines. That warning was ignored and mercury exposure was only increased with additional vaccines.
LA TIMES: PDF] '91 Memo Warned of Mercury in Shots

We are told that thimerosal in found in "some adult flu vaccines." That falsely implies that children aren't being exposed to mercury in their vaccines. Ninety percent of the vaccine available contains mercury. Good luck to parents who look for a mercury-free shot for children. Anyone three years and older gets 25 mcg. of mercury in their vaccines. According to the EPA, this much mercury is meant for someone weighing 550 pounds. Younger children get 12.5 mcg. of mercury that can be safely processed by someone weighing 275 pounds. Doctors give this vaccine to pregnant women at all stages of pregnancy and the massive mercury assault easily passes the placental barrier and enters the developing fetus.
This chart compares the vaccine schedules in 1983 and 2007. This dramatic increase in the number of vaccines directly coincided with the explosion in the autism rate from one in 10,000 in the 1970s to one in 150 today, along with a host of chronic illnesses among our children like asthma, diabetes, bowel disorders, ADHD, and others.
There has never been a study to determine the cumulative effect of so many additional vaccines on a developing baby.
We're talking about much more than mercury in these vaccines. Other toxic ingredients like aluminum, MSG, formaldehyde, ether, and anti-freeze are commonly found in vaccinations. There is also the debate over the safety of the MMR vaccine which has three live viruses.

Tuesday, February 12 this ad ran in USA Today: Green our vaccines. And administer them with greater care. It's a wakeup call on the need for safe vaccines. The ad ran again Feb. 27 in USA Today.

Dr. Baxtor further tells us, "The preservative is safe and that extensive scientific research has not found any link between thimerosal and autism." This incorrectly lets readers think that all the studies out there say mercury is safe and that's because we only get to hear about the CDC studies or ones financed by the drug industry.
Reporters usually go to the CDC for information on vaccines and autism. They will always say no research can find a link. What else would you expect? This is the agency that runs the vaccine program. They have for years promoted vaccines, especially mercury-containing vaccines, as safe. They have everything at stake in denying serious side effects. This is also the agency where hundreds of individuals have conflict of interest waivers because of money ties to the vaccine makers. Going to them to ask about a link to autism is like asking Phillip Morris if smoking is dangerous to our health. The media continues to give the CDC oversight over itself.
The CDC has endless studies that show no causal relationship between vaccines and autism. They never settle the issue however. If anyone actually looked, they'd discover that these are merely epidemiological studies, the kind produced by the tobacco industry in the 1940s and 50s to show no link between smoking and lung cancer.
This issue is the most heated controversy in medicine today and we need the press to present both sides in the debate. Many news sources are doing that. Here are some examples:

This is a subject that is getting increased national attention and deserves accurate and fair coverage. Nothing could be more important than the health of our children.

US Government concedes vaccine case

Looks like tapestry disorders might finally be making their debut and with it, Judges are seeing that there truly are connections between some vaccines, some of which contain Thimerosal, and some children.

USA Today - Are we poisoning our children ?

Due out in USA Today.

Compare figures for autism and vaccines given over 20 years ago with figures given today. Look at what the vaccines contain.

You CANNOT HAVE A GENETIC EPIDEMIC - so something has to have been happening within the environment. Make up your own minds whether it could be vaccines. Then contact your local politicians.

This is an international scandal.
