The group highlights the fact that mercury is the second most toxic element on Earth and can cause inflammation in brain tissue. That inflammation has been connected to autism, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and other ailments.
Not long ago, Kennedy announced a $100,000 challenge aimed at putting an end to the inclusion of mercury in vaccines administered in the U.S and globally. He held a live press conference at the National Press Club, bringing along with him a wide array of research showing the dangers of mercury in isolation and as an adjuvant in vaccines.
Vaccine safety continues to gain awareness, and more and more parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children, despite fierce push backs from government health authorities and much of the public as well.
Could we be seeing the same thing that happened with Genetically Modified Foods? Documents were made public via a federal lawsuit that showed corruption within the FDA and a campaign aimed at misleading scientists about the dangers associated with GMO foods. There are even disturbing revelations on this matter from released Wikileaks cables. You can read more about this, and find links to the documents, in an article we published that goes into more detail.
The question here to ask is, have doctors and health regulation agencies been lied to about the dangers associated with certain vaccine adjuvants? A lot of information out there suggests that this is exactly what is happening. What’s more, Dr. William Thompson, a longtime senior CDC scientist who published some of the most commonly cited pro-vaccine studies — studies that showed absolutely no link between the MMR vaccine and autism (Thompson, et al. 2007, Price, et al. 2010, Destefano, et al. 2004) — recently came out and revealed that the CDC had destroyed data and falsified this research.
Kennedy represented Thompson, and you can read more about the details of the case in this article we recently published.
Kennedy recently sat down in an interview with Healthline about his concerns:
Healthline: Why is this issue so important to you?
Kennedy: I was litigating and managing around 30 cases against coal-fired power plants, principally focusing on mercury emissions. I had learned a lot about mercury toxicity. I was going around the country speaking on the issue and I began running into women who would tell me that if I was truly interested in mercury exposures to children that I needed to look at thimerosal in vaccines … As I began reading the science, I was struck by the huge delta between what the actual science said and how it was being presented by the press and the public health regulators … It made me angry that they were continuing the practice of injecting children with neurotoxins.
Healthline: It seems that there is an element in here of fighting against big business. It seems that you could compare this to what the sugar and the tobacco industry did with science.
