Stats Reaffirm Autism-Vaccine Link
By Jack Phillips
Which of these is more important to American politicians—drug company profits or kids? Judging from the recent action of the government of the state of New Jersey, drug company profits win hands down. Late last year New Jersey parents were ordered to have their children get flu shots before Dec. 31, 2008, if they wanted them to attend school or day care establishments.
These flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury in the form of thimerosol. This contains 50% mercury and breaks down in the body to form ethyl mercury, a very toxic compound. According to a recent article in the Journal of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons, children who receive three flu shots are 27 times more likely to develop autism than those who do not.
Years ago the same thimerosol used in vaccines was tested as a topical ointment for cure of umbilical cord infection. Children whose bodies couldn’t excrete mercury fast enough died. Physicians involved in the test recommended that thimerosol be banished from hospitals.
Dr. Boyd Haley, chairman of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Kentucky, after disclosing these facts at a meeting, asked: “Knowing this who, in his right mind, would inject this substance into the bodies of young children?”
Unfortunately, the Center for Disease
Control would. They promoted multiple vaccinations of young children, with vaccines containing 12.5 micrograms of mercury per shot, even before their blood brain barriers and digestive systems were fully operational. Moreover they persisted for more than 15 years after Haley first brought it to their attention.
As a result of about 20 years of multiple vaccinations of our children, we have experienced an epidemic of autism, a new American disease first reported as just four cases by a physician at Johns Hopkins University. Devastated families, overloaded schools and billions of dollars of medical expense have resulted from this ill-conceived program. Autism and autism spectrum disease preferentially affect males. The female hormones are protective against these diseases.
The ratio of males to females with autism is about 4:1. A whole generation of our young men has suffered brain damage which is showing up in our universities. At Harvard some classes, which used to contain mostly young men, now have a majority of young women. At the University of Kentucky, points have to be added to test scores of young men to get them into law and medical schools.
Courtesy of our federal government, taxpayers, not drug companies or other members of the medical monopoly, are responsible for the damages caused by these vaccines. Only a few claims of injured children have been adjudicated. Meanwhile the drug medical monopoly is hard at work trying to obscure the facts about mercury and the American Dental Association is continuing to claim that its “silver” fillings, which also contain mercury, do no harm.
