I am absolutely livid right now. And I am confident you will be, too, after you read this. You see, for several years I have been working within the healthcare industry to reduce the use of mercury in healthcare facilities. Mercury can be found in various pieces of medical equipment, as well as some light bulbs and other common devices.
Mercury is a dangerous neurotoxin that causes brain damage in developing brains. The EPA states that exposure to mercury “can adversely affect a baby’s growing brain and nervous system.” Plainly stated, that means mercury causes lifelong brain and nerve damage in children.
That’s why the FDA recommends pregnant women avoid many types of fish and shellfish while pregnant. And that’s also why many engineering professionals have been working so hard to reduce the use of mercury in healthcare facilities, schools, daycare centers, and other areas frequented by expectant mothers and small children.
Well, it turns out all that work may have been for naught, because many Americans are being injected with dangerously high doses of mercury every year!
A recent, independent analysis conducted by Mike Adams of NaturalNews.com shows that flu vaccines contain more than 25,000 times more mercury than the EPA allows in drinking water. The kicker is that when we ingest mercury in food or water, there’s a good chance some of it will not make it into our blood stream. But when it’s injected directly into our blood stream, those chances drop to zero.
So why then is the Center for Disease Control recommending pregnant women get a flu shot? They don’t even mention that flu shots may contain mercury, eliminating all possibility that a pregnant woman can make an informed decision. The CDC’s website specifically says “the flu shot is safe for pregnant women.” That tells me either the CDC is completely ignorant of the danger, or willfully misleading the American people.
This is, in my opinion, criminal. Whoever at the FDA is allowing mercury to be used in flu vaccines needs to be fired and all production of flu vaccine halted until the U.S. government can figure out how to prevent Americans from being injected with mercury. Every piece of literature published by the CDC recommending that pregnant women and children be given flu vaccines should be redacted immediately. Every company that is knowingly producing mercury-containing flu vaccines should be fined and their chief executives thrown in jail.
I have started a petition at WhiteHouse.gov and ask that you join me in this important movement to remove mercury from flu vaccinations.
