Dr. William Thompson used to work for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US. The CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older, but Dr Thompson admits he would never give his pregnant wife a flu shot because many contain thimerosal, a mercury-containing adjuvant that he warns can be linked to toxic effects and “autism-like-features.”
You can watch a video here, uploaded by the Autism Media Channel, of Dr. Thompson speaking very clearly about his concerns. The question is – why is this not in the mainstream media? The notion that a CDC official would make this statement is very interesting.
Dr. Thompson has co-authored papers on the subject that have shown up in the New England Journal of Medicine, one, for instance, titled, “Early Thimerosal Exposure and Neuropsychological Outcomes at 7 to 10 Years.” This paper was published in 2007.
He has said, specifically:
“I don’t know why they still give it to pregnant women . . . That’s the last person I would give mercury to.”
He also states that:
“. . .tics are four times more prevalent in kids with autism. . . There is biologic plausibility to say that thimersol is causing autism-like features.”
These findings have been dismissed even considering the fact that the New England Journal of Medicine is considered one of the most authentic journals in which to public’s medical information. It’s the CDC’s gold standard. The journal is even listed on their website as a reference point, yet they continue to promote vaccines containing thimerosal.
This adjuvant has been used in vaccines since the 1930s; however, the dosing schedule for vaccines has continued to increase since that time (and the American Dental Association also started telling dental patients that mercury fillings were O.K. to put in their teeth.)
The University of Calgary has a video showing what happens to a neuron at even low-level exposure of mercury – after only twenty minutes of exposure of mercury in tiny amounts, neurons began to rapidly degenerate.
A global treaty was even signed last year to reduce the prevalence of mercury. If even a former employee of the CDC says that thimerosal is dangerous, why then are vaccines still made with this adjuvant at all, and people not given very clear warning before they consent to an injection with this substance? The issue is with this additive.
The mainstream media continues to promote thimerosal-containing vaccines made by companies like the RAND corporation. Major retailers like Walgreen’s and CVS can’t wait to give you a flu shot. They even offered ‘flu shot’ gift cards over the holidays.
