Perhaps he will come forward to volunteer himself, or perhaps his twin daughters, to take some mercury injections. This might be a viable experiment to gather data that might end the debacle once-and-for-all.
The mercury issue is just another example of administration double-speak. It is, in this case, tantamount to experimentation without consent.
But then this has been a long-existing US policy. Right mate?
And just another way to build profit for Bush cronies under the false assumption that flu vaccine works.
Using last year's flu to make this years vaccine is junque science of the highest order.
Remember, the ones who get sick are the ones who have had the shot...maybe it is dumbing down your immune system.
It's worth your time and consideration to keep you and your health from jumping off a cliff.
Bush Set To Veto HHS-Labor-Education Appropriations Bill Because of Provision To Remove Mercury From Infant Vaccines
According to the Congressional Quarterly (21 Jul 2007), the White House stated on Tuesday that President Bush would veto the HHS-Labor-Education Appropriations Bill because of the cost and "objectionable provisions" such as a measure to ban the use of childhood flu vaccines that contain thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative.
Autism advocacy groups are outraged because President Bush stated in a questionnaire during his 2004 campaign: "I support the removal of Thimerosal from vaccines on the childhood national vaccine schedule.
During a second term as President, I will continue to support increased funding to support a wide variety of research initiatives aimed at seeking definitive causes and/or triggers of autism. It is important to note that while there are many possible theories about causes or triggers of autism, no one material has been definitely included or excluded."
But since 2005, President Bush has steadfastly refused to issue an Executive Order banning high amounts of mercury in vaccines that would protect children and pregnant women despite repeated requests from the autism community that he uphold his campaign promise. Under his current administration, mercury has been and will continue to be knowingly injected into the youngest of American citizens. The controversial mercury-containing preservative thimerosal has been linked by thousands of parents as being the cause of their children's mercury poisoning and autism.
The flu vaccine which continues to be manufactured with mercury is recommended for all pregnant women, infants and children despite the fact that the Institute of Medicine in 2001 recommended against the policy of exposing these same sensitive groups to thimerosal containing vaccines.
According to the EPA, one in every six women of childbearing age already has blood levels of mercury high enough to cause neurological damage to their unborn children due to environmental exposures alone.
"Injecting even more mercury into the bodies of pregnant women, infants and children when it is not a necessary component of vaccines is just bad medicine," said Lyn Redwood, president of SafeMinds and parent of a mercury-injured child.
"It defies logic that a flu vaccine must be disposed of as a hazardous waste if it is not used, but somehow injecting the same mercury-containing vaccine into a baby is safe."
