(NaturalNews) Nearly every pregnancy and health advocacy group in the nation, including Consumer Reports, (1) advises pregnant women to avoid consuming products like canned tuna fish that contain high levels of neurotoxic mercury. But the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has released new guidelines urging pregnant women to get their seasonal flu shots, even though these vaccines often contain up to 25,000 times more inorganic mercury in the form of thimerosal than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) maximum contaminant levels for drinking water.

In a recent statement, ACOG stressed its opinion that flu shots are vital for women who are trying to become pregnant. The group says it is more important that women get jabbed with high levels of mercury, formaldehyde, aborted fetal tissue and in some cases actual live flu virus, than to risk developing pneumonia, going into premature labor or otherwise suffering from the health effects of contracting the flu.

ACOG ignores science; says flu shots are safer than ever
Since ACOG issued its last flu shot recommendations back in 2010, the group says that more evidence has emerged to show that flu shots are completely safe for pregnant women. The group not only advocates for women to get jabbed in order to prevent the flu but also claims that doing so will help women have better pregnancies.
“New data show the continued critical need for influenza vaccination during pregnancy,” alleges ACOG’s new guidelines.
This is curious, as our own 2011 investigation into flu vaccines found that they don’t actually work as claimed, and that only about 1.5 out of every 100 adults who receive one will avoid getting the flu. (4) This is an utterly dismal success rate, yet ACOG and others would have us all believe that science is somehow in their favor, and that flu vaccines actually do work.
