New plot to poison children?
It’s too dangerous for my kids — so here, why don’t you give it to yours?
Most parents would be outraged at anyone with the nerve to say anything like that. Yet that’s exactly the position of the American Academy of Pediatrics when it comes to a toxic metal mercury in vaccines.
Back in 1999, after a lot of public pressure, the AAP called for a complete ban on thimerosal, a preservative that was adding mercury in vaccines.
It was a rare bit of common sense from a major mainstream medical organization, since mercury isn’t just any old toxic substance — it’s one of the most toxic substances on the entire planet.
It’s so dangerous that even the very small amounts of mercury in vaccines may lead to serious and lasting neurodevelopmental problems, possibly even autism.
But today, common sense has left the building as the AAP is now doing its best to block U.N. efforts at a global ban on thimerosal — and it’s not because it’s in the best interest of children or adults.
It’s because it’s in the best interest of the AAP’s Big Pharma backers.
See, thimerosal may be dangerous… but like a lot of toxic substances, it’s dirt cheap. So when it’s used as a preservative, the price of vaccines comes down. And when the price of vaccines comes down, drug companies can sell more of them in poor countries.
So today, the same AAP that led the charge to get thimerosal removed from many vaccines in the United States is leading the charge to make sure to keep the mercury in vaccines shipped off to the Third World.
Of course, they claim it’s safe for everyone — and that they never would have backed the U.S. ban if they knew in 1999 what they knew today. But there’s one little problem with that theory: In the 14 years that have passed, the science on this stuff hasn’t changed.
There’s still not a single honest-to-goodness clinical trial that proves thimerosal is safe for humans, especially children.
So I don’t care where you stand on the vaccine debate — whether you support them or not, you should make sure your child or grandchild is never given a shot with thimerosal in it no matter where you live.
By the way, mercury in vaccines isn’t the only ingredient you should be worrying about . There’s a host of other potentially toxic preservatives, and some of them are downright disgusting.
