"WHO made its disclosure before the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) where it met unprecedented resistance to its defense of the use of neurotoxic mercury in vaccines. "This is a huge development," says CoMeD's Vice President, David Geier, while speaking at UNEP's INC4 meeting."

I read the press release, and don't understand what they are saying. Did the WHO change its mind recently?

I didn't really understand either - it said the WHO was made to disclose it's 2004 guidelines on thimerosol in vaccines. That was 8 years ago. Doesn't seem like a new development...?
