[The following is an E-email action alert from Autism Action Network http://autismactionnetwork.org]
It is time for an Executive Order banning Mercury in vaccines
It is time to finally get mercury out of vaccines in America. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Robert De Niro, Del Bigtree, Rev. Tony Muhammand and Nicholas LaHood held a press conference in Washington, DC today calling for mercury-free vaccines in the US, among other crucial reforms, and offered a $100,000 prize to any journalist who can produce a peer-reviewed scientific study that proves that mercury in vaccines is safe.
Please click on the link Take Action link to send an email to the President asking him to issue an executive order to stop the use of mercury in vaccines in America. Mercury has been banned for decades in most of the world as a vaccine ingredient, but not here, even though back in 1999 the federal government issued a directive stating that mercury should be removed from all American vaccines “as soon as possible,” after an internal CDC study conducted by Thomas Verstraeten found 7 times as much autism in children who received mercury-containing vaccines compared to those who didn’t (Google “Simpsonwood.”) Eighteen years later and it is still in a third of American flu shots, and back then flu shots were not recommended for pregnant women and children under 4, now they are. Mercury isn’t the only safety concern with American vaccines, but the fact that it is still in American vaccines given to pregnant women and small children shows the level of concern paid to safety issues by the American vaccine industry.
And please call the White House and politely tell the Comment Line you want the President to issue an executive order to end the use of mercury in American vaccines. He has the authority to do it. It is far past time to get it done.
