I apologize if this has already been posted, but I couldn't find it and it needs to be seen. RFK Junior is no slouch, he's been around a while and
has a high profile position with the NRDF. If the allegations in this article are true, this is the most blatant abuse of power I have ever heard of,
and the US's international image is giong to go a lot lower than it already is.
Thimerosal is a preservative used in vaccines when more than one dose is packaged in the same bottle, it prevents the growth of bacteria or fungi in
the vaccine. Unfortunately, the drug companies neglected to consider the harmful effects it has on those being vaccinated.
Quoting the first part of the article:
By Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
June 16, 2005 | In June 2000, a group of top government scientists and health officials gathered for a meeting at the isolated Simpsonwood
conference center in Norcross, Ga. Convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the meeting was held at this Methodist retreat center,
nestled in wooded farmland next to the Chattahoochee River, to ensure complete secrecy. The agency had issued no public announcement of the session --
only private invitations to 52 attendees. There were high-level officials from the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the top vaccine
specialist from the World Health Organization in Geneva, and representatives of every major vaccine manufacturer, including GlaxoSmithKline, Merck,
Wyeth and Aventis Pasteur. All of the scientific data under discussion, CDC officials repeatedly reminded the participants, was strictly
"embargoed." There would be no making photocopies of documents, no taking papers with them when they left.
The federal officials and industry representatives had assembled to discuss a disturbing new study that raised alarming questions about the safety of
a host of common childhood vaccines administered to infants and young children. According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten, who had
analyzed the agency's massive database containing the medical records of 100,000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines -- thimerosal
-- appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children. "I was actually stunned by
what I saw," Verstraeten told those assembled at Simpsonwood, citing the staggering number of earlier studies that indicate a link between thimerosal
and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism. Since 1991, when the CDC and the FDA had recommended that three additional
vaccines laced with the preservative be given to extremely young infants -- in one case, within hours of birth -- the estimated number of cases of
autism had increased fifteenfold, from one in every 2,500 children to one in 166 children.
