Baby Bloomberg gets his way

Hi all,

If you've been watching the news you've seen that Mayor Bloomberg has made it mandatory that all kids get their flu shot in order to attend daycare, pre-school & school.

Many anti-vaccine groups rallied to try to get this blocked before coming law but Mayor Bloomberg got his way & it was passed.

In a radio interview, he called those who were anti-vaccine & said Thimerosal was dangerous "liars."   I just love how those who don't do their homework call people liars who do their homework.

As a reminder, here is the link to the Thimerosal MSDS sheet.

Quoting from a part of the MSDS sheet -

Federal and State Regulations:
California prop. 65: This product contains the following ingredients for which the State of California has found to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, which would require a warning under the statute: Thimerosal California prop. 65:  This product contains the following ingredients for which the State of California has found to cause birth defects which would require a warning under the statute: Thimerosal TSCA 8(b) inventory: Thimerosal SARA 313 toxic chemical notification and release reporting: Thimerosal CERCLA: Hazardous substances.: Thimerosal

Think about the rise in cancer rates among children.   The number of vaccines goes up as does the number of caner cases.  

Parts of the insert that show that vaccines haven't been tested for carcinogenic properties.

New York does have religious exemptions available to them.

But it is very difficult to get through as you have to meet with a lawyer & go through a questioning process as to your sincerity of your religious beliefs.

Notice how the lawyer doesn't like to be interrupted but he loves to interrupt people when they are trying to talk.  He believes that God let vaccines be created so therefore they should be ok in anyone who believes in God.  This interview process goes against our constitutional right to Freedom of Religion.

I looked up a memo for guidelines for Religious exemption & found these 2 paragraphs to be interesting -

As required by regulation, in order to obtain a religious exemption to immunization for a child, a parent/guardian must submit a written and signed statement stating his or her religious objection to immunization. On the Parent/Guardian Statement Form, the elements listed for inclusion in the written statement are intended to assist the parent/guardian in providing a statement that clearly and completely articulates the sincere and genuine religious beliefs which prohibit the immunization of his or her child.
If the parent/guardian follows the instructions on the form, most requests will be able to be implemented based solely on the basis of the written statement. The supporting documents suggestion is intended only as an illustrative, not inclusive, list and any supporting documents should be requested only when questions remain about the existence of a sincerely held religious belief based on review of the parental/guardian statement.

The memo is stating that a written religious exemption should be sufficient but yet most parents have to go through an interview process as seen above to prove their religious sincerity.

Mayor Bloomberg only has a few weeks left in office.  It will be interesting to see if this flu shot mandate stands or it is taken away by the next mayor that comes into office.

Until next time,

How are vaccines disposed of?


Its been a busy two weeks here.   Finals are next week & then I'm off from school for 4 1/2 weeks.   We've started a remodeling project that will be finished on Dec. 31st.   I'm heading to Chicago in two weeks to hear Dr. Wakefield again & to help with the DAIR foundation fundraiser.

So.......lets dive into this weeks article.

Have you ever wondered how expired vaccines are disposed of?  Is there any special treatment that they need?   The answer may surprise you.

According to the Illinois Department of Health, any vaccine containing Thimerosal must be disposed of as hazardous waste.

In Wisconsin, the Flu shot is treated as hazardous waste as it contains 50,000 ppb of mercury.

What is the EPA limit for mercury in water?   2 ppb!

In Ohio, 4 out of 8 types of flu shots need to be treated as hazardous waste.

In North Dakota, Thimerosal containing flu shot & tubing containing chemotherapy drugs are considered hazardous waste.

An interesting sentence I came across while researching this article is this.

"While most of the thimerosal is removed by subsequent purification steps, the final vaccine may contain a trace amount of mercury, less than or equal to 1 mcg per 0.5 mL dose. This amount exceeds the federal threshold noted above and, as a result, the Novartis single-dose formulation should be disposed of as federally hazardous waste."

So, vaccine manufacturers say there is a trace of thimerosal in the vaccine & nothing to be worried about.  Federal guidelines say not so fast, that amount exceeds federal guidelines & needs to be disposed of as hazardous waste.

A quote said by EPA's own Judith Enck - “Mercury is a strong neurotoxin that can damage the nervous system and cause other health and environmental problems. The EPA has insured that this waste site will be cleaned up and that the taxpayers will not bear the burden of addressing this legacy of toxic contamination.”

Ok, so lets gets this straight.   Vaccines containing Thimerosal/mercury are considered safe & effective.  Bud when it comes to disposing of the excess or expired vaccine, it has to be treated as hazardous waste.  

Our own government officials tell us that even a trace amount exceeds federal guidelines & has to be treated special.

What is wrong with this picture?  Why are people so willing to sacrifice their children to hazardous waste?   Why are people thinking that taking hazardous waste into their body will make them healthier?

It all boils down to subscribing to the religion of pharmakia.  

Until next time,
