Among his points:
"This is the case because the scientifically sound and appropriate toxicology studies required to prove “Any preservative used shall be sufficiently nontoxic so that the amount present in the recommended dose of the product will not be toxic to the recipient” have, as the FDA admits and the record demonstrates3, have never been conducted.
Moreover, in a 1948 Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) paper, Harry E. Morton et al.4 clearly established that Thimerosal was not suitable for use as a vaccine preservative."
He points out that Offit is lying when he claims that thimerosal was removed from most previously thimerosal-containing vaccines by 2001 (whicih many of us here knew anyway, but most people don't):
"Thimerosal (49.55% mercury by weight) was not removed from most Thimerosal-containing vaccines by 2001.
As of 21 March 2005, “Thimerosal Preserved”5 vaccines were still being distributed for nine (9) vaccine products..."
"Thus, including the overlap between the two recent lists, today there are
at least 18 in-date vaccine products in commerce that contain some level of Thimerosal with half of these drug products containing a preservative level of Thimerosal.
Of these, currently only JE-VAX, “Td” and “TT” vaccines are not routinely administered to children 18 and under."
