Aren't we repeatedly informed that there is no mercury in vaccines?
If that is truly the case, and you know it isn't, what to make of this?
The World Health Organization is trying to fend off an effort to include a mercury derivative used in vaccines from being banned in a global treaty on mercury currently under negotiation.
The next round of talks for the proposed binding treaty begin on Oct. 31, and the Geneva-based UN health agency is trying to lobby for support of its position that banning thimerosal would be a mistake.
Thimerosal (mercury "derivative") is a preservative used in many vaccines that are shipped to doctors and clinics in multi-dose vials.Without a preservative, these vaccines would have to be produced in single dose formulations, which would drive up their cost considerably.
Therefore the Pharmaceutical profits would not be so big.
Negotiations aimed at limiting the risk from mercury began in 2009 after the UNEP's governing council decided voluntary efforts to reduce use and emissions of the chemical were not making a big enough impact.
The WHO lists mercury as one of the top chemicals of public health concern in the world, a designation saved for the most hazardous of compounds. It is especially harmful for children and developing fetuses, with exposure leading to impaired cognitive development.
That bears repeating!
The WHO lists mercury as on of the top chemicals of public concern in the world-
A designation saved for the most hazardous of compounds.
But not in vaccines injected straight into your body?
This article contradicts itself with regards to Canada:
-In some developed countries — Canada, the United States, the countries of Western Europe — thimerosal is no longer used in most pediatric vaccines
Canada has filed a position paper on the issue with the UNEP. While it says thimerosal will be phased out of vaccines used in Canada when safe alternatives are available, it believes there is no "legitimate safety reason to avoid the use of thimerosal-containing products for children or older individuals, including pregnant women."
So which is it? Is there mercury in the vaccines in Canada or not?
Judging by the position paper filed by Canada, it would seem mercury is indeed present in vaccines in Canada
Mercury Ban threat to Vaccination Programs
Mercury Treaty could affect costs of Vaccine Programs
A real kicker, here, WHO wants mercury phased out of such things as batteries and thermometers (and who has a mercury thermometer?) Things you do not ingest. But we are supposed to continue on injecting mercury into the bodies of infants through to adult hood and beyond.
