Natural News – Same media outraged over Manchester bombing of little girl totally SILENT when 100,000 U.S. children are maimed or killed by vaccines every year
Sunday, May 28, 2017 by: Ethan Huff
(Natural News) The recent terrorist bombing that reportedly took place at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, U.K., has once again brought shock and awe to the world. Media outrage over the incident has reached a crescendo, particularly with circulating images of eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos, one of the younger concertgoers who’s said to have been killed along with at least 21 others during the attack. It’s a painful reminder that terrorism is still very much present in the world today, and yet the fallout pales in comparison to the number of children who are injured or killed every year from government-approved vaccines – for which the media is completely silent.
Vaccine Holocaust deniers who pretend to be journalists are profiled at the non-profit website VaccineHolocaust.org.
It’s a shame because, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, also known as V.A.E.R.S., at least seven times the number of people who died in Manchester during the recent terrorist bombing also died from vaccine injuries just in 2016. You can look for yourself and see that a total of 144 deaths are listed in V.A.E.R.S. as having resulted from childhood vaccinations, the vast majority of these probably occurring in little boys and girls who are really no different from young Saffie Rose Roussos.
Of course, these are just the deaths that were reported to V.A.E.R.S., which some sources say represent only about one-tenth of the actual number that occur every year. This suggests that as many as 1,440 children die every year in the vaccine holocaust from chemical violence, though you’d never know about it from the total media blackout on the subject. To the mainstream media, all vaccines are completely safe and effective and would never harm any children, which is why inconvenient information like this is intentionally kept out of public view.
When visiting the V.A.E.R.S. database, follow the prompts to download the data sheets and search for deaths that reportedly occurred following vaccination.

Natural News – More children harmed by VACCINES than from GUNSHOTS, government statistics reveal
Tuesday, May 16, 2017 by: Lance D Johnson
(Natural News) Every 45 minutes, a child is hospitalized in the U.S. because of a gunshot wound. Fifty seven percent of firearm-related injuries in children 15 years of age and younger are unintentional. We all want to improve on the issue of gun safety to protect our children from accidental injury, but when it comes to vaccine safety, many turn a blind eye, accepting vaccine injury as a necessary evil.
According to the National Database of Inpatient Stays for Children, there were more than 5,800 children under the age of 17 treated for firearm injuries in 2012. These cases are recognized and taken seriously for what they are, but these accidents pale in comparison to the number of vaccine injures that occur daily. Debilitating vaccine injuries are not taken seriously by the mainstream media, the courts, or the medical establishment, but they are inflicted on babies, children and adults at the average rate of 125 reports per day.
Firearm ownership requires diligence and responsibility. Families should educate kids about gun safety and have strict, safe storage practices. All this is important, but the most neglected public health issue of our time is vaccine safety. The real problem with pediatric care and public health is vaccine damage. Data acquired from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reveals that children across the U.S. are being hospitalized and treated for vaccine injuries at alarming rates.
According to VAERS data, there were 45,742 reported adverse events following vaccination in 2016 alone. These adverse events, which can be life threatening, primarily affect children because kids are pumped full of more than 50 vaccine doses before they reach 6 years of age. The reckless pediatric vaccine schedule, generated by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), pays no mind to vaccine safety because the agency owns 20 vaccine patents and buys and sells $4.1 billion in vaccines annually. There are no safety studies to prove that multiple vaccines work as intended or that the compounding, toxic load of vaccines is safe for small, developing bodies. Most parents surrender their children to the CDC’s vaccine schedule because of the fear of overhyped diseases, a fundamental lack of understanding of the terrain theory, and because many shots are required for their child to attend public school.
In the first 75 days of 2017, 4,244 vaccines injuries were reported to VAERS. These are only the cases that were reported to VAERS. Countless more cases of vaccine injury go unreported because parents don’t know how to report vaccine damage, are caught in disbelief, or misled by medical professionals. Skin problems, high fever, seizures, swelling, and the many problems associated with vaccines go unreported or are written off as coincidental. It’s no coincidence that a child begins to have seizures following a toxic injection of altered pathogenic material grown in diseased cow’s blood or fetal tissue lines. It’s no coincidence that a child’s mood changes and their skin breaks out in a rash after they had received injections of aluminum, mercury and formaldehyde.

AUTISM: First Sign at 6 months old
This is Rafael at 6 months old. The first sign of autism for him is hand flapping. Please know that this is NOT an issue if there aren’t MORE symptoms of autism, but there were. The second sign of autism for him was echolalia and that is the repeating of speech and sound. He was diagnosed at two with high functioning autism and OCD. I want to show other parents early signs of autism so they can be aware of it and can watch their childs development. No one symptom shows autism, it is always a GROUP of symptoms. I have two children on the autism spectrum and while a lot of their symptoms are similar, some are not. All kids are different, even the same disability in a child will be different in every child. You have to look for the early signs and begin working with them very young so they can have the best outcome. My older son with Aspergers is very independent and well-spoken. He had eight years of speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. He speaks very eloquently now and is highly intelligent. Most kids with high functioning autism have a high IQ, this is just a disorder of communication and processing! If you feel your child is on the asd autism spectrum, please have them evaluated. It hurts nothing to check, and they won’t be diagnosed unless they have symptoms. THIS is NOT labeling your child, this is getting them extra help that they need to function in every day life! Good luck!

Human Fetal DNA Fragments In Vaccines Are A Possible Cause For Autism – According To This Stanford Scientist
Arjun WaliaSeptember 5, 2014
Dr. Theresa Deisher, a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Physiology from Stanford University, the first person to discover adult cardiac derived stem cells, determined that residual human fetal DNA fragments in vaccines may be one of the causes of autism in children through vaccination.
“It is possible that these contaminating fragments could be incorporated into a child’s genome and disrupt normal gene function, leading to autistic phenotypes.”
You can read the full study HERE : http://soundchoice.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/DNA_Contaminants_in_Vaccines_Can_Integrate_Into_Childrens_Genes.pdf
Title:  Spontaneous Integration of Human DNA Fragments into Host Genome
K. Koyama, T. A. Deisher Sound
Choice Pharmaceutical Institute, Seattle, WA
Not only damaged human cells, but also healthy human cells can take up foreign DNA spontaneously . Foreign human DNA taken up by human cells will be transported into nuclei and be integrated into host genome, which will cause phenotype change . Hence, residual human fetal DNA fragments in vaccine can be one of causes of autism spectrum disorder in children through vaccination.Vaccine must be safe without any human DNA contaminations or reactivated viruses, and must be produced in ethically approved manufacturing processe

Regressive autism after MMR vaccine
These video clips throughout my son’s first year of life show he was clearly turning and looking at me calling his name, laughing at faces, playing socially with his brother. I took video of him just 3 days after his vaccines at 15 months which included the MMR vaccine and the video shows him withdrawing. Over time he no longer made much eye contact or responded to his name or my voice. Like he went into his own world. Subpoena Dr. Thompson of the CDC! His official statement that significant data has been omitted from a 2004 study done on autism and the MMR needs to be be investigated! The paper would have shown a strong link between this vaccine and autism.

Malibu Moms to Vaccine Industry: Take Your Shots and Shove ’em
by Sarah
The vaccine industry is beside itself.
College educated Moms in Malibu and all around the Los Angeles area are refusing shots for their children at an accelerating rate.
And, as any trendspotter knows, lifestyle trends that take hold in California typically spread to the rest of the country over time.
How strong is this trend?
Estimates are that only 20% of children that attend some private schools in the Los Angeles area are vaccinated.
You read that right.  Privately educated children in LA are unvaccinated up to 80% of the time!
How about public school?
Still shockingly non-compliant with the egregious CDC childhood vaccination schedule.
One public elementary school in affluent Malibu, just north of Los Angeles , reports that only 58 percent of its students are immunized. Health department authorities “recommend” 90+ percent immunization rates for school going children.

Doctors Change Names of Diseases When Vaccines Do Not Work
Doctors around the world are being faced with children catching the diseases they have been vaccinated against. Rather than diagnosing these children correctly, professionals have discovered that the doctors are giving the diseases new names. This suggests a cover up is going on and the vaccinations we are all being told are safe and effective are in fact completely useless.
Vaccinations are now being given to children to keep them safe from every disease known to man. There appears to be a vaccination for everything from polio to a broken finger nail. However, many professionals now believe that the vaccinations are actually causing the diseases they are supposed to prevent.
It appears that they could be right because news has just been released that 47,500 children became paralyzed after polio vaccinations in India in 2011. According to Dr Jacob a member of the national technical advisory group on immunization and of the working group on the food and drug regulation in 2011 after receiving the polio vaccination, an additional 47,500 children were newly paralyzed, over and above the standard rate of 2 children per 100,000 non-polio AFP (acute flaccid paralysis) cases. (1)
Dr Viera Scheibner is a professional who would not be at all surprised at the above figures. She has firmly believed for many years that contrary to the belief that vaccinations prevent children from becoming ill, they are causing children to catch the diseases that they are being vaccinated against. She best explains this in her extremely well written letter published recently in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). (2) Her letter on the subject of polio vaccinations contains outstanding research and opens a gigantic can of worms that will be difficult for the pharmaceutical industries to ignore. In answer to an article titled ‘Polio eradication: a complex end game – Polio Eradication by Vaccination,’ she wrote:
“Polio eradication by vaccination?
Let me quote some original seminal medical research.
Anderson et al. (1951) in his article “Poliomyelitis occurring after antigen injections” (Pediatrics; 7(6): 741-759) wrote “During the last year several investigators have reported the occurrence of poliomyelitis after  a few weeks after injection of some antigen. Martin in England noted 25 cases in which paralysis of a single limb occurred within 28 days of injection of antigen into that limb, and two cases following penicillin injections.”
She continued:
“Geffen, studying the 1949 poliomyelitis cases in London, observed 30 patients who had received an antigen within four weeks, noting also that the paralysis involved especially the extremity into which the injection had been given.
Dr Scheibner provided many examples of researched evidence proving that vaccinations have been causing cases of paralysis and polio for many years.
She could be right because concerns were being raised even during the polio vaccines early days.

Autism symptoms of five boys improve in early trial of century-old drug
Autism symptoms improved in five boys given a century-old drug for sleeping sickness, according to a new study led by University of California San Diego researchers.
The small clinical trial involved 10 boys, including five who received a placebo and did not show improvement. Those that received a single infusion of the drug, suramin, showed significantly better functioning in language, behavior and willingness to socialize. The gains lasted for several weeks, said Robert Naviaux, a UC San Diego professor who was the study’s principal investigator.
The open-access study was published in the Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology. It is online at j.mp/autismsuramin. (A detailed question and answer interview with Naviaux is available at this link, along with accounts from parents in the study about the improvement they saw in their children. Both were provided by UCSD.)
Autism spectrum disorder therapy is often based on behavioral methods, sometimes accompanied by drugs. It’s considered most effective when treatment begins as early as possible. Consequently, much research is focused on developing methods of early screening for infants and toddlers likely to have autism.
But these boys were older than toddlers. The youngest was 5, the oldest 14; and the average age was 9.1 years. So if the research is confirmed, it would mean there’s more brain plasticity in older autism spectrum disorder children than has been believed.
It would also mean that for the first time, a drug would be proven to treat an underlying cause of autism.
Naviaux said the results in this study, which primarily assessed safety, must be regarded as preliminary. However, he said the results warrant a larger trial. He’s planning to test 40 diagnosed autism spectrum disorder children.

 

Vaccine news – CDC Knew Its Vaccine Program Was Exposing Children to Dangerous Mercury Levels Since 1999

World-famous scientist issues warning about genetically modified vaccines
Here’s a look at just some of the genetically modified vaccines on the market today — and the risks we know about:
RotaTeq: This is supposed to protect babies from rotavirsues, and lots of kids get three doses before they even reach six months of age. But it’s actually made from a cross between cow and human DNA, and clinical trials found that infants are twice as likely to suffer seizures within the first two weeks after they get the vaccine.
Flucelvax: This new flu jab is being marketed like crazy this time of year. But what they’re not telling you is that it was actually made by combining human flu strains with kidney cells from a cocker spaniel! And while Flucelvax has only been around for a couple years, we already know that injecting ourselves with dog DNA is bad news. The vaccine nearly doubles your risk of a painful muscle condition called myalgia.
HPV vaccines, like Gardasil: I’ve told you stories about healthy, young girls who ended up paralyzed, unable to feed themselves and incapable of even attending school shortly after getting these shots. And currently, Virginia, Rhode Island and the District of Columbia require a Gardasil shot just to attend school.
And there are a whole bunch of new genetically-spliced recombinant vaccines coming down the pike, including one for measles.
Every time scientists try to warn us about the dangers of vaccines, the mainstream bends over backwards to call them quacks. But, trust me, nobody is saying that about Stephen Hawking.

Stephen Hawking Says the Human Race is in Danger and it’s our Own Fault
I feel so smart today. It isn’t often that the scientific merit of my ideas is confirmed by Stephen Hawking.   Today, there is an article in The Guardian, reposted in the MSN news, titled, “Most threats to humans come from science and technology, warns Hawking”. Excerpt:
“Speaking to the Radio Times ahead of the BBC Reith Lecture, in which he will explain the science of black holes, Hawking said most of the threats humans now face come from advances in science and technology, such as nuclear weapons and genetically engineered viruses.”
Genetically engineered viruses? Where have I heard that before? Oh, that’s what drug companies put into vaccines that doctors, nurses and pharmacists inject directly into and/or put in the mouths of people – vaccines for illnesses that include Hepatitis B, HPV, flu, and rotavirus.
The vaccine for Hepatitis B was the first to be made from a genetically engineered virus as announced in this New York Times article from July 1986 (please see – the reader will appreciate the historical significance). Note who, in 1986, the Hepatitis B vaccine was recommended for:
Dr. Young recommended vaccinations with either hepatitis vaccine for dental and medical workers, susceptible homosexuals and drug users, the newborn children of infected women, and, among other groups, travelers to parts of the world where hepatitis B is rampant, such as southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and parts of the Middle East.
That was a couple of years before they got the no doubt economically motivated crazy idea to assault every baby born in this country with the full series of this genetically modified concoction, the first dose of which would be given by their decree when the baby is in medical custody, in hospital, within 12 hours of birth.

ALUMINUM contained in vaccines is a metalloestrogen
Study – Metalloestrogens: an emerging class of inorganic xenoestrogens with potential to add to the oestrogenic burden of the human breast.
J Appl Toxicol. 2006 May-Jun;26(3):191-7.
Abstract
Many compounds in the environment have been shown capable of binding to cellular oestrogen receptors and then mimicking the actions of physiological oestrogens. The widespread origin and diversity in chemical structure of these environmental oestrogens is extensive but to date such compounds have been organic and in particular phenolic or carbon ring structures of varying structural complexity. Recent reports of the ability of certain metal ions to also bind to oestrogen receptors and to give rise to oestrogen agonist responses in vitro and in vivo has resulted in the realisation that environmental oestrogens can also be inorganic and such xenoestrogens have been termed metalloestrogens. This report highlights studies which show metalloestrogens to include aluminium, antimony, arsenite, barium, cadmium, chromium (Cr(II)), cobalt, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, selenite, tin and vanadate. The potential for these metal ions to add to the burden of aberrant oestrogen signalling within the human breast is discussed.

13 Year-Old Boy Permanently Disabled from Chicken Pox Vaccine Wins His Case in Vaccine Court
A young man was recently awarded compensation in the United States Court of Federal Claims Vaccine Court, for injuries he sustained after being administered the hepatitis A and varicella vaccinations in 2009.  After five long years of litigation, Health and Human Services (HHS), the Respondent in all vaccine injury cases, conceded that the varicella vaccination did in fact cause RD’s vaccine injury, transverse myelitis, which has left him a tetraplegic.
In November 2014, HHS conceded that the vaccination caused RD’s injuries.  Even with this concession, his case continued for another year in the damages phase, during which time the parties continued to negotiate the amount of damages that RD would receive for his injuries.  Although he was compensated for his suffering and injuries, the monetary award will never compensate for the lifelong effects this young man is suffering from his vaccine injury.
Five Long Years
RD was only 13 when his life changed forever.  At a routine well-child visit in 2009, the doctor informed RD’s parents that he was due to receive the hepatitis A and varicella vaccinations.  His parents complied with the doctor’s order and RD received the vaccinations.
RD’s mother explained that, at that time in RD’s state, only one dose of varicella vaccine was required and RD had already received one dose of that vaccine.  This second dose that was administered to RD at this well visit was determined to be the cause of RD’s horrific injuries, and it was not even required for him, which his family didn’t realize until it was too late.
About 14 days later, RD began to experience excruciating pain shooting through his body along with tingling, numbness and paralysis of his limbs. After extensive testing and many invasive procedures, RD was diagnosed with transverse myelitis.
RD’s parents filed a case in Vaccine Court, which took over five years to settle. RD and his family faced arduous heartbreak along the way. In the ruling, a representative from the United States Department of Justice agreed that “a preponderance of the evidence establishes that petitioner’s transverse myelitis was caused-in-fact by the administration of his August 12, 2009 varicella vaccine.” [1]
RD’s lawyer, Patricia Finn, stated that:
“The injuries that RD suffered from this vaccine are severe and lifelong.  Even though he has received a significant award as far as the awards in the Vaccine Court go, no amount of money will ever compensate him for what he has lost.
But RD is an amazing young man who has not let this injury stop him in any way.  He has graduated high school with his class, attends a Tier 1 college, and has great aspirations that I know he will achieve despite the challenges he faces because of his injuries.”
RD’s Immune System Attacked His Spine

Ignoring the agency’s own scientific evidence, the CDC’s webpage stubbornly insists that the “two types of mercury to which people may be exposed—methylmercury and ethylmercury—are very different.” The new CDC study directly contradicts this assertion, “There are many commonalities/similarities in the mechanisms of toxic action of methylmercury and ethylmercury …”
The study meticulously details identical toxicity pathways shared by both forms of mercury:
Both ethyl and methyl mercury cause DNA damage or impair DNA synthesis (Burke et al. 2006; Sharpe et al. 2012; Wu et al. 2008).
Both cause oxidative stress/creation of reactive oxygen species (Dreiem and Seegal 2007; Garg and Chang 2006; Myhre et al. 2003; Sharpe et al. 2012; Yin et al. 2007).
Both decrease glutathione activity, thus providing less protection from the oxidative stress caused by MeHg and EtHg (Carocci et al. 2014; Ndountse and Chan (2008); Choi et al. 1996; Franco et al. 2006; Mori et al. 2007; Muller et al. 2001; Ndountse and Chan 2008; Wu et al. 2008).
Both cause effects on cell division by damaging the spindle apparatus during mitosis (Burke et al. 2006; Castoldi et al. 2000; Gribble et al. 2005; Kim et al. 2007; Ou et al. 1999b; Machaty et al. 1999; Rodier et al. 1984).
Both MeHg and EtHg bind to the amino acid cysteine (Clarkson 1995; Wu et al. 2008).
Both MeHg and EtHg strongly inhibit the reacylation of arachidonic acid, thus inhibiting the reincorporation of this fatty acid into membrane phospholipids (Shanker et al. 2002; Verity et al. 1994; Zarini et al. 2006).
Both cause an increase in NOS, causing an overproduction of NO (Chen et al. 2003; Chuu et al. 2001; Shinyashiki et al. 1998).
Both disrupt glutamate homeostasis (Farina et al. 2003a, b; Manfroi et al. 2004; Mutkus et al. 2005; Yin et al. 2007).
Both alter intracellular calcium homeostasis (Elferink 1999; Hare et al. 1993;Kang et al. 2006; Limke et al. 2004b; Machaty et al. 1999; Marty and Atchison1997; Minnema et al. 1987; Peng et al. 2002; Sayers et al. 1993; Sirois and Atchison, 2000; Szalai et al. 1999; Tornquist et al. 1999; Zarini et al. 2006).
Both cause effects on receptor binding/neurotransmitter release involving one or more transmitters (Basu et al. 2008; Coccini et al. 2000; Cooper et al. 2003; Fonfria et al. 2001; Ida-Eto et al. 2011; Ndountse and Chan 2008; Yuan and Atchison 2003).
“This study is a nuclear bomb detonating over the CDC,” Boyd Haley, chairman emeritus of the University of Kentucky Chemistry Department, said. “It should be getting international, front page headlines.”

Mainstream News Reporting That #BigPharma Is Paying Everyone Off!

New Study Confirms That Mercury Is Linked to Autism
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Two new studies by international teams, including Egyptian scientists, have validated the link between autism and mercury.
In an article published in the journal Metabolic Brain Disease, a team of nine scientists from leading Egyptian universities and medical schools confirmed the causal role of mercury in the onset of autism.
The scientists determined the extent of mercury poisoning in children by measuring urinary excretion of organic compounds called porphyrins, which act as biomarkers for mercury toxicity. The researchers also measured blood levels of mercury and lead. The researchers found a strong relationship between mercury toxicity and the presence of autism and a direct correlation between levels of mercury toxicity and the severity of autism symptoms.
The scientists studied 100 children; 40 with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), 40 healthy individuals and 20 healthy siblings of ASD children. The results showed that the children with ASD had significantly higher mercury levels than healthy children and healthy siblings. Children with the highest mercury levels had the most severe autism symptoms.
At least six American studies have linked autism presence or severity to mercury exposure as determined by measuring urinary porphyrins. The first study, completed by Heyer et al. in 2012 (Autism Res 5:84) showed a correlation between the presence of autism and specific urinary porphyrins associated with mercury toxicity. This affirmed an earlier study by Kern et al. (2011, Pediatr Int 53:147) where specific porphyrins associated with mercury toxicity were significantly higher in ASD children as compared to non-autistic controls. Woods et al. (2010, Environ Health Perspect 118:1450) also saw disordered porphyrin metabolism in autistic kids which was not observed in non-autistic control children. This again suggested increased mercury toxicity associated with autism and autism spectrum disorder.

Study – Altered urinary porphyrins and mercury exposure as biomarkers for autism severity in Egyptian children with autism spectrum disorder
Abstract
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects social, communication, and behavioral development. Recent evidence supported but also questioned the hypothetical role of compounds containing mercury (Hg) as contributors to the development of ASD. Specific alterations in the urinary excretion of porphyrin-containing ring catabolites have been associated with exposure to Hg in ASD patients. In the present study, the level of urinary porphyrins, as biomarkers of Hg toxicity in children with ASD, was evaluated, and its correlation with severity of the autistic behavior further explored. A total of 100 children was enrolled in the present study. They were classified into three groups: children with ASD (40), healthy controls (40), and healthy siblings of the ASD children (20). Children with ASD were diagnosed using DSM-IV-TR, ADI-R, and CARS tests. Urinary porphyrins were evaluated within the three groups using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), after plasma evaluation of mercury (Hg) and lead (Pb) in the same groups. Results showed that children with ASD had significantly higher levels of Hg, Pb, and the porphyrins pentacarboxyporphyrin, coproporphyrin, precoproporphyrin, uroporphyrins, and hexacarboxyporphyrin compared to healthy controls and healthy siblings of the ASD children. However, there was no significant statistical difference in the level of heptacarboxyporphyrin among the three groups, while a significant positive correlation between the levels of coproporphyrin and precoproporphyrin and autism severity was observed. Mothers of ASD children showed a higher percentage of dental amalgam restorations compared to the mothers of healthy controls suggesting that high Hg levels in children with ASD may relate to the increased exposure to Hg from maternal dental amalgam during pregnancy and lactation. The results showed that the ASD children in the present study had increased blood Hg and Pb levels compared with healthy control children indicating that disordered porphyrin metabolism might interfere with the pathology associated with the autistic neurologic phenotype. The present study indicates that coproporphyrin and precoproporhyrin may be utilized as possible biomarkers for heavy metal exposure and autism severity in children with ASD.

CDC Knew Its Vaccine Program Was Exposing Children to Dangerous Mercury Levels Since 1999

Uncovered documents show that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) knew that infant vaccines were exposing American children to mercury far in excess of all federal safety guidelines since 1999. The documents, created by a FDA consulting toxicologist, show how federal regulators concealed the dangerous impacts and lied to the public.
PDF source
In 1997, Congress passed the FDA Modernization Act. A provision of that statute required the FDA to “compile a list of drugs that contain intentionally introduced mercury compounds, and provide a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the mercury compounds on the list.” In response, manufacturers reported the use of the mercury-based preservative, thimerosal, in more than 30 licensed vaccines.
FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) was responsible for adding up the cumulative exposure to mercury from infant vaccines, a simple calculation that, astonishingly, had never been performed by either the FDA or the CDC. When the agency finally performed that basic calculation, the regulators realized that a six month-old infant who received thimerosal-preserved vaccines following the recommended CDC vaccine schedule would have received a jaw dropping 187.5 micrograms of mercury.
Instead of immediately ordering the removal of thimerosal, FDA officials circled the wagons treating the public health emergency as a public relations problem. Peter Patriarca, then director of the FDA Division of Viral Products, warned his fellow bureaucrats that hasty removal of thimerosal from vaccines would:
” … raise questions about FDA being ‘asleep at the switch’ for decades by allowing a potentially hazardous compound to remain in many childhood vaccines, and not forcing manufacturers to exclude it from new products. It will also raise questions about various advisory bodies regarding aggressive recommendations for use. We must keep in mind that the dose of ethylmercury was not generated by “rocket science.” Conversion of the percentage thimerosal to actual micrograms of mercury involves ninth grade algebra. What took the FDA so long to do the calculations? Why didn’t CDC and the advisory bodies do these calculations when they rapidly expanded the childhood immunization schedule?”
The agency consulted with experts in the field of toxicology to better understand the potential impact of these exposure levels. One consultant was Barry Rumack, MD. Dr. Rumack, at the time, had a private consulting practice, Rumack Consulting, where he offered “toxicologic and pharmacologic evaluation of drugs, biological and potentially toxic or hazardous agents for government and industry.” After creating several scenarios based on infants’ ages and weights, Dr. Rumack modeled blood and body burden levels in 1999.

Missouri Bill Would Ban Mercury Vaccines; First Step to Nullify Federal Policy in Practice
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Jan. 31, 2017) – A Missouri House bill would ban public health clinics from administering vaccines that contain mercury or any other metal put into the vaccine for preservation purposes, contradicting approved federal policy.
House Bill 331 (HB331) was introduced by Rep. Lynn Morris (R-Nixa) to mitigate concerns regarding vaccine safety. With the exception of health emergencies determined by the Department of Health & Senior Services with concurrence from the governor, the following provision would apply:
Beginning August 28, 2018, no vaccine containing mercury or other metal for preservation or other purpose shall be administrated to a child or adult in a public health clinic in Missouri.
HB331 begins the process of nullifying potential vaccine mandates, which generally have their basis in federal recommendations or guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Although these federal rules are not technically binding, they often influence policy-makers and individuals at the local and state levels to adopt coercive mandates regarding mercury-laced vaccines and other toxic substances.
By taking the rule-making power back into their own hands, the state of Missouri can disconnect from federal control and restore its sovereignty on this key issue.
NECESSITY
Measures such as HB331 push back against federal narratives regarding immunizations. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) downplays concerns regarding the use of thimerosal, a preservative containing mercury. They even admit on their own website that mercury is still being used to preserve certain vaccines:
Thimerosal, which is approximately 50% mercury by weight, has been one of the most widely used preservatives in vaccines… While the use of mercury-containing preservatives has declined in recent years with the development of new products formulated with alternative or no preservatives, thimerosal has been used in some immune globulin preparations, anti-venins, skin test antigens, and ophthalmic and nasal products, in addition to certain vaccines.
As the FDA downplays the concerns related to thimerosal and mercury in vaccines, whistle-blowers are singing a different tune. The National Vaccine Information Center, a non-profit watchdog organization, reports that the threat is still alarming – especially pertaining to infants:
Most infants are still routinely given Thimerosal-containing influenza vaccine even though there are Thimerosal-free and vaccines with trace amounts of Thimerosal. Infants receiving a Thimerosal-containing influenza vaccine are dosed at 6 months with 12.5 mcg of ethyl mercury and at 7 months with an additional 12.5 mcg. Adult Thimerosal-containing vaccines contain roughly 25mcg.
The CDC aids the FDA in promulgating their point of view. Although the CDC attempts to maintain a veneer of independence and credibility, there are facts showing that narrative to be false. The CDC Foundation boasts that it helps the CDC “do more, faster.” It is able to do this because the CDC Foundation receives annual funding from a host of corporations including Pharmaceutical giants Merck, Roche, and Emergent BioSolutions Inc.

Fewer Same-Day Vaccines—at an Older Age, Says Study

Fewer Same-Day Vaccines—at an Older Age, Says Study
The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons recently reported a link between the number of simultaneous vaccinations a child receives and the risk of serious injury or death. The report cites a 2012 study that looked at raw data from the government Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
The authors looked at VAERS data on infants from 1990 through 2010—about 38,000 reports in total. The study found that infants receiving multiple vaccines concurrently, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die, compared with infants who received fewer vaccinations in one visit. Age was also a factor: adverse effects were more likely to lead to hospitalization or death in younger infants.
The CDC recommends a combination of up to eight vaccines during a single visit to the pediatrician. Medical literature makes it clear that this is not for the child. It is because parents cannot be trusted to bring their children back again and again to receive the full battery of vaccines. The government’s approach to vaccine administration, with one shot piled on top of another on top of another, has never been tested for safety in clinical trials.
The author points out that skeptics of using VAERS data to draw conclusions about the safety of vaccines claim that the database doesn’t prove conclusively that the adverse events reported in VAERS are caused by vaccination. But if that’s the case, why does the CDC regularly twist VAERS data to justify its recommendations?
For example, almost 9% of the adverse reactions reported for the live attenuated influenza vaccine, for example, are classified as “serious” (fatalities, cardiovascular events, neurological debilities, etc), yet CDC researchers concluded from these same adverse event reports that the results were “reassuring.” Reassuring to whom?
Speaking of the flu vaccine, a new study once again raises the question of whether mercury (still used as a flu shot preservative) increases the risk of autism.

Study: Altered urinary porphyrins and mercury exposure as biomarkers for autism severity in Egyptian children with autism spectrum disorder
Abstract
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects social, communication, and behavioral development. Recent evidence supported but also questioned the hypothetical role of compounds containing mercury (Hg) as contributors to the development of ASD. Specific alterations in the urinary excretion of porphyrin-containing ring catabolites have been associated with exposure to Hg in ASD patients. In the present study, the level of urinary porphyrins, as biomarkers of Hg toxicity in children with ASD, was evaluated, and its correlation with severity of the autistic behavior further explored. A total of 100 children was enrolled in the present study. They were classified into three groups: children with ASD (40), healthy controls (40), and healthy siblings of the ASD children (20). Children with ASD were diagnosed using DSM-IV-TR, ADI-R, and CARS tests. Urinary porphyrins were evaluated within the three groups using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), after plasma evaluation of mercury (Hg) and lead (Pb) in the same groups. Results showed that children with ASD had significantly higher levels of Hg, Pb, and the porphyrins pentacarboxyporphyrin, coproporphyrin, precoproporphyrin, uroporphyrins, and hexacarboxyporphyrin compared to healthy controls and healthy siblings of the ASD children. However, there was no significant statistical difference in the level of heptacarboxyporphyrin among the three groups, while a significant positive correlation between the levels of coproporphyrin and precoproporphyrin and autism severity was observed. Mothers of ASD children showed a higher percentage of dental amalgam restorations compared to the mothers of healthy controls suggesting that high Hg levels in children with ASD may relate to the increased exposure to Hg from maternal dental amalgam during pregnancy and lactation. The results showed that the ASD children in the present study had increased blood Hg and Pb levels compared with healthy control children indicating that disordered porphyrin metabolism might interfere with the pathology associated with the autistic neurologic phenotype. The present study indicates that coproporphyrin and precoproporhyrin may be utilized as possible biomarkers for heavy metal exposure and autism severity in children with ASD.

Report: Relative trends in hospitalizations and mortality among infants by the number of vaccine doses and age, based on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), 1990–2010
Abstract
In this study, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, 1990–2010, was investigated; cases that specified either hospitalization or death were identified among 38,801 reports of infants. Based on the types of vaccines reported, the actual number of vaccine doses administered, from 1 to 8, was summed for each case. Linear regression analysis of hospitalization rates as a function of (a) the number of reported vaccine doses and (b) patient age yielded a linear relationship with r 2 = 0.91 and r 2 = 0.95, respectively. The hospitalization rate increased linearly from 11.0% (107 of 969) for 2 doses to 23.5% (661 of 2817) for 8 doses and decreased linearly from 20.1% (154 of 765) for children aged <0.1 year to 10.7% (86 of 801) for children aged 0.9 year. The rate ratio (RR) of the mortality rate for 5–8 vaccine doses to 1–4 vaccine doses is 1.5 (95% confidence interval (CI), 1.4–1.7), indicating a statistically significant increase from 3.6% (95% CI, 3.2–3.9%) deaths associated with 1–4 vaccine doses to 5.5% (95% CI, 5.2–5.7%) associated with 5–8 vaccine doses. The male-to-female mortality RR was 1.4 (95% CI, 1.3–1.5). Our findings show a positive correlation between the number of vaccine doses administered and the percentage of hospitalizations and deaths. Since vaccines are given to millions of infants annually, it is imperative that health authorities have scientific data from synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines that infants might receive. Finding ways to increase vaccine safety should be the highest priority.

Study: Combining Childhood Vaccinesat One Visit Is Not Safe
ABSTRACT
Although health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claim that childhood vaccines are safe and recommend combining multiple vaccines during one visit, a review of data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows a dose-dependent association between the number of vaccines administered simultaneously and the likelihood of hospitalization or death for an adverse reaction. Additionally, younger age at the time of the adverse reaction is associated with a higher risk of hospitalization or death

Exp Toxicol Pathol. 2009 Mar;61(2):133-6. Epub 2008 Sep 3.
Branch DR, Departments of Medicine and Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology, University of Toronto
A recent report shows a correlation of the historical use of thimerosal in therapeutic immunizations with the subsequent development of autism; however, this association remains controversial. Autism occurs approximately four times more frequently in males compared to females; thus, studies of thimerosal toxicity should take into consideration gender-selective effects. The present study was originally undertaken to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of thimersosal in male and female CD1 mice. However, during the limited MTD studies, it became apparent that thimerosal has a differential MTD that depends on whether the mouse is male or female.

This study demonstrates clearly and unequivocally that ethyl mercury, the kind of mercury found in vaccines, not only ends up in the brain, but leaves double the amount of inorganic mercury as methyl mercury, the kind of mercury found in fish. This work is groundbreaking because little is known about ethyl mercury, and many health authorities have asserted that the mercury found in vaccines is the “safe kind.” This study also delivers a strong rebuke of the Institute of Medicine’s recommendation in 2004 to no longer pursue the mercury-autism connection.

We review evidence to support a model where the disease process underlying autism may begin when an in utero or early postnatal environmental, infectious, seizure, or autoimmune insult triggers an immune response that increases reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in the brain that leads to DNA damage (nuclear and mitochondrial) and metabolic enzyme blockade and that these inflammatory and oxidative stressors persist beyond early development (with potential further exacerbations), producing ongoing functional consequences.

Nothing is known about specific exposure routes, dosage, timing, and individual susceptibility. We suspect that persistent low-dose exposures to various environmental toxicants, including mercury, that occur during critical windows of neural development among genetically susceptible children (with a diminished capacity for metabolizing accumulated toxicants) may increase the risk for developmental disorders such as autism.
