FDA: Vaccines Still Contain Mercury – Rioting in Spain – GMOs Consuming Global Food Supply – More Drone Strikes in Pakistan
March 31, 2012
Riot police took to the streets of Spain as protesters burned bins, vandalized shops and attacked officers during a one day nationwide general strike. Spaniards angry with having the eurozone’s highest unemployment rate refused to go to work in protest at further crushing austerity measures being brought in by the new center-right Popular Party government.

It is a common myth today that the vaccines administered to children no longer contain the toxic additive thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative linked to causing permanent neurological damage. But a recent federal case involving the U.S.Food and Drug Administration(FDA) has revealed that, contrary to this widely-held belief, thimerosal is actually still present in many batch vaccines, including in the annual influenza vaccine that is now administered to children as young as six months old.
Filed by a citizen-backed coalition advocating vaccine safety, the lawsuit against the FDA alleged that the agency’s continued endorsement and approval of thimerosal as a vaccine additive is a serious public health threat, especially since safer alternatives already exist and are widely used voluntarily by many vaccine manufacturers. But Judge Brett Kavanaugh, siding with antiquated pseudoscience, decided that thimerosal is not a health threat, and that those who wish to avoid it can simply choose thimerosal-free alternatives.
Ignoring the evidence of thimerosal’s dangers brought before him on behalf of the millions of children across the country who continue to be injected with this mercury-based additive, Judge Kavanaugh declared that the plaintiffs, which include groups like theCoalition for Mercury-Free Drugs(CMFD), did not have proper standing to file the lawsuit. And in the process, both he and the FDA inadvertently admitted that thimerosal is still present in many childhood vaccines, which counters popular claims to the contrary.
FDA admits on its website that thimerosal is still in vaccines
The fact that Judge Kavanaugh refused to hear the case is tragic in and of itself, as thimerosal, which is composed of 50 percent mercury, has been proven to cause serious health damage. But what may be even worse is the fact that many people falsely believe that thimerosal is not even included in vaccines anymore, which is leading them to blindly allow them to be administered to their children. And the U.S.Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) and the FDA have continued to provide dubious and misleading information on the subject, which the mainstream media has been complicit in spreading over the years.
But the FDA explains, in no uncertain terms, directly on its website that thimerosal is still added to certain vaccines. For this reason alone, it is crucial that parents who choose to vaccinate their children ask for an ingredients list for each and every vaccine before allowing them to be administered to their children.
“While the use of mercury-containing preservatives has declined in recent years with the development of new products formulated with alternative or no preservatives, thimerosal has been used in some immune globulin preparations, anti-venins, skin test antigens, and ophthalmic and nasal products, in addition to certain vaccines,” writes the FDA on itsThimerosal in Vaccinespage (http://www.fda.gov).
Don’t believe the lie: Thimerosal is eventually converted by the body into highly-toxic inorganic mercury
Another myth often spread by thimerosal advocates claims that the ethylmercury compounds that compose roughly 50 percent of the preservative are not actually harmful because they are different from the type found in a can of tuna. But a comprehensive review conducted by Dr. Paul G. King has proven otherwise, showing that ethylmercury is first metabolized by the body into toxic methylmercury, which is then metabolized into inorganic mercury (http://www.infowars.com).
Both methylmercury and inorganic mercury are listed by the U.S.Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) as toxic substances responsible for causing neurological problems, brain disorders, nervous system illnesses, gastrointestinal problems, kidney failure, respiratory illness, and death (http://www.epa.gov/hg/effects.htm).

The Value Of Freedom
By Robert Mackay
What is the actual value of Freedom, and where to the exact boundaries lie?
In Chemistry, a catalyst is a substance that is added to a chemical reaction that speeds up the process. Examples: Want vitamins or remedies to act more quickly and effectively, add
Magnesium. Want your fire or explosion to grow more rapidly, add Oxygen.
Freedom is a catalyst, that to the degree it is allowed, enables the most efficient and
unstoppable success in the evolution of our Intelligence, Innovation, and Invention. Curtailing Freedom limits our adaptability to our Environment, and our Survivability.
There are costs for Freedom. Number one, is the uneven Distribution of Wealth. But what is fair here? Rewards for Innovation, Risk Taking, and Investment in time and money are available to all: The better the success, the greater the reward. The entire population benefits.
To say that it is unfair to reward those that have risked their time and money to better the lives of others is pure foolishness. The result will be no more inventions, innovations, or investment in products and services that make life better for all of us.
Freedom is exactly what maximizes Human Beings’ progress of adaptation in the continuing
Evolution Process. Whatever is not in tune with Nature, will eventually be Destroyed by Nature.
To the extent that Freedom is compromised, misdirected, or outlawed, bad things will quickly
