Lab tests conducted at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab found that seasonal flu vaccines, which are pushed on virtually everyone these days, including young babies, pregnant women and the elderly, contain outrageously high levels of neurotoxic mercury.
Vials of batch flu vaccine produced by British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) were found to contain upwards of 51 parts per million of mercury, or 25,000 times the legal maximum for drinking water established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
This shocking discovery was made using advanced mass spectrometry technology with incredible accuracy, filling the gap left by the nation’s regulatory agencies that have failed to conduct this type of safety testing themselves. Millions of people are injected with flu flulaval-flu-shotvaccines annually, and most of them are completely unaware that one of the most toxic metals known to man is being implanted directly into their muscle tissue unabated.
“Mercury is one of the most poisonous substances known to mankind,” explained Dr. David Brownstein, a board-certified family physician and holistic medicine specialist, on his blog. “For over twenty years, I have been testing nearly every patient seen in my office for heavy metal contamination. … I have found that over 80% of my patients, both healthy and sick, have mercurytoxicity.”
Mercury is notorious for damaging the developing brains and nervous systems of babies and children. Concern about the serious effects of mercury pollution brought delegates from more than 140 nations to Geneva this January to put the finishing touches on a global treaty to minimize emissions. But there’s a form of mercury that the treaty won’t touch – one that is injected, in tiny amounts, straight into young kids’ bodies.
Some common vaccines that prevent such diseases as diphtheria, whooping cough and meningitis contain thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative that fights bacteria and fungi. Thimerosal is also used in the production of certain vaccines, which retain trace amounts of the compound.
The outcome reflected the position of the World Health Organization that the small amount of thimerosal used in vaccines is safe. Even the American Academy of Pediatrics, which called for thimerosal to be removed from children’s vaccines over a decade ago. Last year came out in favor of exempting the preservative from the mercury treaty.
The exemption also stemmed from a widely shared economic judgment that the cost to make and distribute thimerosal-free vaccines would be steep and couldn’t be justified by the uncertain benefits.
Leading the charge to protect thimerosal – also known as thiomersal — was the World Health Organization, or WHO, which coordinates global vaccination programs. “The fundamental position of WHO is that thiomersal vaccines are safe and effective and in fact essential products for protecting the majority of the world’s children and infants,” Dr. David Wood, an official in WHO’s Department of Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals.
Pregnant women, young children and elderly encouraged to line up for mercury injections
The academy, the nation’s dominant pediatricians group, highlighted the concerns in a 2001 report: “Mercury in all of its forms is toxic to the fetus and children, and efforts should be made to reduce exposure to the extent possible to pregnant women and children as well as the general population.”
You can see for yourself on the official drug insert for FluLaval, the flu vaccine evaluated by Natural News, that the vaccine does, indeed, contain mercury.
The following quote is taken directly from RxList.com, the so-called “Internet Drug Index,” proving that flu vaccines contained added mercury in the form of thimerosal.
And yet, even with all these added contaminants, pregnant women, the elderly and young children are prodded to get jabbed every year by health authorities. Never mind that each of these ingredients is a known neurotoxin, not to mention the fact that formaldehyde is a known cause of cancer — just line right up and get your flu shots, because the government says they’re good for you!
The mercury double standard continues to ravage public health
The irony in all this is that the government now admits that mercury is toxic, at least when it comes from other sources. The Obama administration, as we recently reported, is on a crusade to shut down all coal power plants, using the excuse that they blast heavy amounts of mercury into the atmosphere. And official government warnings tell pregnant women to avoid mercury from canned tuna.
But what about the mercury still being used in vaccines and dental fillings? Why is mercury exposure from these sources completely safe, according to the government, but mercury in food and smokestacks should be avoided?
We need to raise awareness for this problem. Share this article so maybe it will reach more officials and change the way they treat our children with vaccines!
