primate study shows significant harm from one birth dose of a mercury-containing vaccine
in the first safety study of its kind of the hepatitis vaccine birth dose, the researchers showed that male macaques vaccinated at birth with a hepatitis b vaccine (hbv) took more than twice as long as unexposed macaques to acquire three standardized skills typically used to measure infant brain development. the thirteen vaccinated monkeys each received a dose of merck’s recombivax® hepatitis b vaccine to which a weight-adjusted amount of the ethyl mercury-containing vaccine preservative thimerosal had been added (each dose included 2 micrograms of ethyl mercury as opposed to the human infant dose of 12.5 micrograms). seven unexposed monkeys received either a saline placebo injection or no shot at all.
over a two week period following birth, the researchers examined the infant macaques daily for their ability to perform nine basic reflexes (four reflexes were tested in two ways, so the paper reports thirteen performance results). three of nine reflexes showed significant delays in vaccinated macaques while two other reflexes were delayed and “approached significance.” as for the three significant reflexes, vaccinated macaques learned more slowly to: 1) turn their head in response to a brush on the cheek (the root reflex); 2) open their mouth in response to a brush on the forehead (the snout reflex); and 3) suck on a nipple placed in their mouth (the suck reflex).
chronic neurological disorders, especially autism, have increased rapidly during the past two decades in association with increases in vaccines (from 10 to 36) and total mercury exposure. in july 1999, cdc, the american academy of pediatrics and vaccine companies agreed to remove mercury from all childhood vaccines "as soon as possible," but it still remains in 16 licenses vaccines, five of which are still given to infants. contrary to its own recommendation, now a decade old, cdc is now recommending the h1n1 and seasonal flu vaccines for "high priority" groups of pregnant women and babies older than six months who could get four doses.
while some doses will be available in single syringes without mercury for those who ask, most doses contain mercury and cdc has refused to state a preference for the mercury-free versions.
this study is the tip of the iceberg.
this paper focuses on one part of a larger comprehensive research program investigating the safety of the entire human infant vaccine schedule by employing standard animal research protocols. the program is examining differences in developmental behaviors, brain, blood, gi tissues, the immune system, health status, pathology, and gene expression profiles between vaccinated and unvaccinated primates. preliminary results of the wider program were presented at the international meeting for autism research in london in may 2008. the presentation suggested evidence of widespread harm caused by the cdc-recommended vaccine schedule.
i'll never forget this bone chilling e-mail from thomas verstraeten, the first researcher to link thimerasol to autism. in this document discovered in a freedom of information act proceeding, dr. verstraeten is referring to a signal in his research that proved a relative risk of 2.56 between thimerasol & autism spectrum disorders. (2.56 is a 256 fold increase)

"attached please find four tables with rrs [relative risks] and three sas
as you’ll see, some of the rrs increase over the categories and i haven’t yet
found an alternative explanation...please let me know if you can think of
frank proposes we discuss this on a call after the new year...

in the past month, the cdc announced a 1:100 asd rate.
remember hannah poling.....it's just 'autism like symptoms'

The CDC does not agree with you, ozoneranger, and neither do I. Instructing professional nurses as to what their ethical obligations regarding flu vaccination should be, is not only on the edge, but it is very offensive as well.
