United Nations Urged to Ban Mercury in Vaccines
Mercury in vaccines has been known for a long time to cause health problems, but global awareness of how much of an impact it can have is growing rapidly. While many nations and organizations such as the UN push for the use of vaccines containing toxic compounds like mercury, other organizations such as the Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs (CoMeD) is pushing for a ban.
In order to prepare for the United Nations Environmental Program’s third intergovernmental negotiating committee (INc3) on mercury, governments were asked to send information to the United Nations secretariat concerning the use of mercury in pharmaceuticals and especially vaccines. The INC meetings are supposed to lead to a legally binding, global mercury treaty by 2013. The information on mercury in vaccines and pharmaceuticals was requested in March of this year for the meeting to take place in the fall. CoMeD was happy about this information, as they’ve been revealing information concerning the dangers of mercury at previous INC meetings.
Mercury in Vaccines
Vaccines contain toxic compounds such as aluminum, lead, arsenic, and something called thimersosal. Thimerosal is a preservative placed in vaccines that is made up of approximately50% mercury. Mercury is such a toxic compound that is has been linked to neurological disorders, cancer, birth defects, and is also a major contributor to environmental pollution. The U.S. Public Health Service and American Academy of Pediatrics both called for thimerosals removal from U.S. vaccines “as soon a possible”. Despite over 100 studies highlighting vaccine dangers and the harmful effects of toxic compounds such as thimerosal, the vaccines are still being pushed, especially on young children and pregnant women.
What do to About all the Toxicity
Like the old saying goes, it’s a lot easier to stay out of trouble than it is to get our of trouble. Similarly, it is a whole lot safer and easier to avoid toxic compounds than it is to neutralize them or take them out of the body. However, there are certain measures to take if vaccinated. If you do receive a vaccine, the first thing to do is to get a cold ice pack and hold it on the infected area for up to 2 days. If the immune response does not subside, begin and continue to take cold showers. This will further help to block the immune reaction.
Another thing to do is to perform a heavy metal cleanse. A heavy metal cleanse will flush out the heavy metals and cause your body to be much less toxic. Although vaccines contain many heavy metals, they aren’t the only things to look out for when it comes to heavy metal toxicity. Silver fillings known as dental amalgams are also made up of mercury and can cause lots of problems. Mercury is also found in those environmentally friendly fluorescent bulbs. Mercury has even been found in high fructose corn syrup.
But the easiest thing to do is avoid mercury altogether. More people are refusing the flu shot and other vaccines this year as opposition grows worldwide. Each person can ‘be the one’ to urge organizations and governments to make serious changes in the healthcare system. As the opposition grows, the changes will come.
