It was not in the past for my son born in 2003. My ped. still was using older lots of vaxs from the state which had not expired. Since there was no recall of thimerosal. I had every intention of vaxing my son on a delayed basis until I started reading more in depth about thimerosal. For ex. the serious flaws in the Danish epidemiological study... including outpatients in the second group when they were not in the first. Where is the real science here? It seems to crumble when one looks closely at it.
So I looked even more closely at all vaccines. I learned of the other toxic vaccine ingredients... the lack of double blind studies... the rise in autoimmune diseases... the benign nature of many childhood illnesses, as well as their ability to confer lifelong immunity.
And the horrible stat reported by the AAP that 1 in 6 children has a neurodevelopmental disorder. That one gives me chills. What are we doing to our poor children??
Trace amounts of mercury?
Do you know what you are shrugging off here? The 25 mcg. of mercury in the current Fluzone vaccine is 3x the EPA determined safe level of mercury for an adult. Which means for a 6 month old infant, depending on it's weight, it will be around 30 times the EPA safe level
. Why is that legal and ethical? How on earth can you assure me, without adequate toxological studies, that this is safe?The generation of children starting in the '90's with the increased amount of thimerosal containing vaccines got up to 250 times or more, the EPA safe level of mercury in their shots.
When does the blood brain barrier close? Does it at all make sense you to be injecting known neurotoxins (if not mercury, formaldehyde then) with no known levels of safety directly into a baby's bloodstream (a most unnatural way of exposure to these diseases)?
Why are there no studies done on unvaxed children? Oh yeah. Who would fund them. The vaccine makers are not interested in proving safety. As a mother, that is my primary concern.
I once heard a poignant statement by I forgot who... about Peds being blind to the many hazards of mercury, and it being a cause of autism specifically.
They said we must forgive the Peds because they are generally very nice people who give their entire lives to caring for children... and the thought that they have instead irreversibly damaged an entire generation is quite beyond their capacity to conceive.www.generationrescue.orgwww.safeminds.org
