This article reports about this gathering of international leaders... but caps it off with editorializing the outcome which may not bode well for
Thimerasol, the mercury-based preservative (adjuvant) which many have been fussing about for along time:
NEXT week, governments from around the world will gather in Geneva to finalise a long-overdue treaty on mercury. The aim of the negotiations is
laudable: to ban those mercury-laden products and pollutants that are a danger to human health and the environment.
Among the targets are some of the most toxic products of the industrial age, including methyl mercury. This notorious compound killed and injured
thousands in the Japanese city of Minamata in the 1950s and 1960s and still poses a significant global health risk.
Another compound facing a possible ban, however, is a benign medicinal preservative called thiomersal (thimerosal in the US). Although it contains
mercury, there is no evidence that it is harmful. In fact, it helps save the lives of well over a million children every year. Banning it
would be a grave mistake.
I find it disheartening that a presumptively journalistic effort would include such statements as in the last paragraph... since they have been a
matter of contention for many years.
While the official
Merk MSDS information about Thimerasol
seems to indicate a plethora of hazards
associate with the substance... ingestion, inhalation, skin contact, etc... the fact that this substance (as it is metabolized by the human body) has
not been found to "bio-accumulate" seems the linchpin upon which the claims of 'safety' are pinned.
There have been a number of studies by medical researchers and professionals (especially in the early days of vaccinations) that seems to belie the
notion that mercury is the "way to go" when dealing with vaccine shelf-life.
"The Bacteriostatic and Bactericidal Action of Some Mercurial Compounds on Hemolytic Streptococci: In Vivo and In Vitro Studies" indicates that while
"Indeed, for a long period mercurial compounds, such as bichloride of mercury, headed the list of chemical which were thought to be effective in the
killing of microorganisms," ... "It is not highly germicidal and especially does not possess high germicidal value in the presence of serum and other
protein mediums. The loss of antibacterial activity of mercurials in the presence of serum proves their incompatibility with serum." The researchers
not about the toxicity of Thimerasol was 262 times more toxic for embryonic tissue cells than for a Staphylococcus.
Yet, the FDA still promotes vaccinations as safe during pregnancy and for infants.
It's a sad story... because we have technocrats and bureaucrats whose primary motivation is the implementation of a "vaccination schedule" which bases
it's aggressiveness on the assumption that vaccines, as currently formulated, are in fact 'better' than no vaccination at all... which logically may
Due to the FDA ignoring the scientific findings and warnings of its own researchers, Thimerosal remained in vaccines for the second half of the
century and has now been linked to an epidemic in autism, attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and a wide range of
other neurological problems.
The epidemic began as the number of vaccines added to the immunization schedule rose dramatically. American children born in 1948 were only required
to show proof of a smallpox vaccination to enter school. By 1991 the number of mandated vaccines had increased from 9 to 21 and children born in 1998
were required by most states to receive 33 or 34 doses of nine or ten different vaccines to enter school.
Beginning in about 1987, as each new vaccine was added to the schedule, no one apparently thought to keep track of the cumulative amount of Thimerosal
that would be injected into children with each new shot. As a direct result of the increased mercury, cases of autism began doubling every four years.
I do not give a lot of weight to the source; but I suspect the excerpt is a sound observation.. excepting the link to autism which the scientific
community seems adamant about rejecting... I think a less biased source of research needs to be found on this matter - considering today most
lucrative research involves that sponsored by the manufacturers themselves.. or their interim "appointed" employees in government.
But this is an important issue because between the naturalist and anti-pharmaceutical media pushes, often filled with hyperbole and emotional appeals
based upon anecdotal evidence, and the scientific community push-back with authoritative yet somehow unpersuasive adherence to "the corporate
sponsor's line" - we - the guinea pigs... are left to suffer.
Of course, don;t expect much from this committee's efforts... they have been known to be as bought and paid for as any medical businessman; and the
truth is frequently trumped by almighty "commerce"... as could be seen here: Secret New
Documents Reveal Shocking Truth About Vaccine Cover UP!
Stay alert... these deliberations may be about the safety of "humankind" - but that does not mean the outcome will be similarly
