An excellent paper by Russell Blaylock, giving you an insight into how things really work behind the scenes. thimerosal is a mercury solution that is used as a preservative in vaccines, and there is established evidence of the direct link between mercury and neurological damage. However, the issue is not limited just to mercury as formaldehyde and aluminium are also use in most vaccines. Although not the subject of this article, these elements also have their own detrimental effects in combination.

On June 7-8, 2000 a secret conference was held at the Simpsonwood Conference Center in Norcross, Georgia to discuss a study examining the link between increasing doses of thimerosal and neurodevelopmental disorders. The study was done using the vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) database,an official governmental data bank collecting patient vaccination information on the children from the health maintenance organizations (HMOs) being paid to participate. Attending were 51 scientists, representatives of pharmaceutical vaccine manufacturing companies and a representative of the World health Organization; the public and the media were unlawfully excluded.
The conclusions of this meeting were quite startling, since it confirmed a dose-response link between thimerosal and neurodevelopmental disorders that held up to rigorous statistical analyses.
In their discussion, they make plain why the meeting was held in secret: the conclusions would have destroyed the public's confidence in the vaccine program, and more importantly, their faith in vaccine authorities.
When the results of this study were published three years later in the journal Pediatrics, the problem had been fixed, in that by adding another set of data from a third HMO, reorganizing the criteria for inclusion and restructuring the patient groupings, a less than statistically significant link was demonstrated. In my analysis I discuss the more outrageous statements made during the meeting and how accepted experts in the field of mercury neurotoxicity were excluded from the meeting.
And these are the opening paragraphs of the paper:
I was asked to write a paper on some of the newer mechanisms of vaccine damage to the nervous system, but in the interim I came across an incredible document that should blow the lid off the cover-up being engineered by the pharmaceutical companies in conjunction with powerful governmental agencies.
It all started when a friend of mind sent me a copy of a letter from Congressman David Weldon, M.D. to the director of the CDC, Dr Julie L. Gerberding, in which he alludes to a study by a Doctor Thomas Verstraeten, then representing the CDC, on the connection between infant exposure to thimerosal-containing vaccines and neurodevelopmental injury. In this shocking letter Congressman Weldon referrers to Dr. Verstraeten's study which looked at the data from the vaccine Safety Datalink and found a significant correlation between thimerosal exposure via vaccines and several neurodevelopmental disorders including tics, speech and language delays, and possibly to ADD.
Congressman Weldon questions the CDC director as to why, following this meeting, Dr. Verstraeten published his results, almost four years later, in the journal Pediatrics to show just the opposite, that is, that there was no correlation to any neurodevelopmental problems related to thimerosal exposure in infants. In this letter, Congressman Weldon refers to a report of the minutes of this meeting held in Georgia, which exposes some incredible statements by the "experts" making up this study group. The group's purpose was to evaluate and discuss Dr. Verstraeten's results and data and make recommendation that would eventually lead to possible alterations in the existing vaccine policy.
I contacted Congressman Weldon's legislative assistant and he kindly sent me a complete copy of this report. Now, as usual in these cases, the government did not give up this report willingly, it required a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to pry it loose. Having read the report twice and having carefully analyzed it; I can see why they did not want any outsiders to see it.
It is a bombshell, as you shall see.
In this analysis, I will not only describe and discuss this report, but also will frequently quote their words directly and supply the exact page number so others can see for themselves.
And if you are up to it, you can also read this research paper by Marcel Kinsbourne MD which is titled "Report on General Causation: thimerosal Exposure, Neuroinflammation, and the Symptoms of Regressive Autism". This was presented as an expert witnesses's testimony for a plaintiff in a court case and cites over 60 authorities.
Parents with infants and children should do comprehensive research into vaccines and make their own informed and educated decision. Specifically parents should investigate for :
Absolute solid proof that the vaccine was responsible for a general decline in the disease incidence and death, this should be proven with historical record data.
Evidence that the vaccine is effective, in other words solid proof that the vaccine is indeed effective and offers true immunity. Fully vaccinated individuals should NOT be getting the disease. If people who have received the full course of vaccination for a particular disease go on to get the disease, this brings the efficacy of the vaccine into question.
Natural, non-invasive alternatives that will offer the same, if not better benefits. For example, high doses of Vitamin A and Vitamin C have been established to reduce both disease adverse effects and mortality from measles once contracted in infants, or to prevent the disease outright. This is established research - but you won't find vitamins being promoted because they don't make as much money as vaccines (vitamins and naturally occurring nutrients can't be patented). If you want to know more, get this book Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins by Thomas A Levy.
Whether the disease risk or the vaccination risk is greater. Many diseases pose little threat and have relatively mild symptoms when encountered in childhood. They also provide very strong and natural lifelong immunity when contracted in childhood. So these two matters have to be weighed out.
