Actress Holly Robinson Peete, 44, issued an open letter to the "Huffington Post", addressed to writer Sally Pipes who wrote an editorial in the "New York Daily News" claiming celebrities are quick to blame autism on child vaccinations. In the letter, Robinson Peete defends her
stance that vaccines contain dangerous levels of mercury, and that certain children are born with weakened immune systems that make them vulnerable to developing autism. She also challenges the medical community to conduct more research on the possible genetic component of autism.

Another nutcase that won’t vaccinate her kids.

Actually, I’ll join her in the nutcase line then, anonymous… did you know that when the thimerosal is put into the multi-dose jars, that it settles in the liquid downward, and accumulates together. That is because it is a heavier molecular weight than the surrounding ingredients. If a nurse doesn’t thoroughly shake the jar before putting the syringe in, to evenly distribute the mercury, then what the nurse draws out CAN and sometimes DOES contain an extremely high amount of thimerosal. Consider this: when my son was born, some of his vaccinations were supposed to have 25 micrograms of mercury in them. But they were packaged in multi-dose jars, which means that each jar contained at least 10 doses. You do the math. His syringe could have contained little or no mercury, OR, it could have contained up to 250 micrograms of mercury. All injected into his bloodstream…all going past the not-yet-formed blood-brain-barrier…all of the toxicity of the mercury being accelerated by aluminum (a common vaccine adjuvant)… the science is out there, anonymous—Dr. Bernadine Healy who is a former member of the National Institute of Medicine (I believe that was her affiliation), has publicly come out and said that she HAS read the science, and she sees a plausible connection.

So have you read the science yet? If not, then don’t be so quick to call Holly Robinson Peete a nutcase.

In the meantime, yes, my son was harmed by his vaccinations and suffered severe adverse reactions… I’m a nutcase for wanting to prevent my son from further harm…

First, my kids are all vaccinated. Second, if there really truly is no link between vaccinations and autism, why are the Pharmaceutical companies willing to accept this PR loss instead of actually, you know, doing the scientific thing and performing studies to prove it?

Thimerosal has been removed from or reduced to trace amounts in all vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years of age and younger, with the exception of inactivated influenza vaccine. They know it is dangerous, yet they still won’t remove it from the flu shot!?

While the MMR vaccines have been tested individually, they’ve never been tested as a package. The interactions could have unforeseen side-effects. At least in the United States we have the option of breaking the shot into its individual shots, in the UK that is illegal. Why?

“Follow the money.” If the Pharm Co.s truly cared about your health, they’d perform the tests and prove their claims.

Getting your children, and yourself, vaccinated is smart, but do it intelligently, not blindly. Don’t put your trust in a company whose only goal is their bottom line.

Thimerosal is still in any vaccine that is not a single dose vial. That is what they use to preserve the vaccines therefore giving them a longer shelf life, so this is more cost effective for the big pharmaceutical companies to make bigger profits to line their pockets. I know this as I asked my Dr. if only single dose vials were safe & she said all mult dose vials contain preservatives. Of course I was never told this until after my little girl had her vaccinations & then got the MMr as her final one & less then 1 month later she was diagnosed as autistic. Coincidence? I don’t think so as she was totally fine before.
