Book Description

4 Aug 2014
From New York Times bestselling author Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., comes a science-based call for the immediate removal of the dangerous mercury-containing preservative Thimerosal from vaccines. Over a decade ago, following a sharp rise in developmental disorders such as autism and ADHD, the mercury-containing preservative Thimerosal was widely believed to have been eliminated from vaccine supplies in the United States and abroad. However, dangerous quantities of Thimerosal continue to be used, posing a significant threat to public health and leading to a crisis of faith in vaccine safety. In this groundbreaking book, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., examines the research literature on Thimerosal and makes a very clear statement about its potentially dangerous effects. In the past, the CDC, FDA, NIH, and AAP, as well as the US Congress, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the US Department of Agriculture, the European Medicines Agency, and the California Environmental Protection Agency have expressed concerns over the use of Thimerosal in vaccines. But despite the many voices calling for action, the media and policy makers have repeatedly failed to adequately address the issue. Now, with Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak, the science supporting the elimination of this toxic chemical from the world's vaccine supplies, and its replacement with already available safer alternatives, is all in one place. Making this change should increase vaccination rates by restoring the trust of concerned parents in the vaccine program-a program that is so vitally important to public health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Critical education 24 July 2014
By Mary S. Holland - Published on
The book offers a dispassionate review of the scientific literature on thimerosal. Well-written, easy-to-read in short,well-referenced chapters, the book makes an overwhelming case that thimerosal should be removed from all vaccines immediately. The book revisits an important issue that many in industry and medicine would rather see left alone. The book is well worth reading for all those interested in public health and mercury in medicine.

5.0 out of 5 stars In-depth and well-researched 29 July 2014
By Rastafunk - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an in-depth and thoroughly researched discussion of mercury, a known neurotoxin, in vaccines. Kennedy makes it clear that he is pro-vaccine, but that there's no viable reason for pharmaceuticals to continue using mercury when it is clear that it can harm children even in very small doses. Removing mercury from all vaccines may well have the added benefit of increasing public confidence in the CDC's recommended vaccine program. Doctors Mark Hyman and Martha Herbert offer additional insight. It's rare to find a book that offers so much more than anecdotal evidence on the issue of vaccine injuries and approaches the topic from a solid scientific foundation. Very important read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read 30 July 2014
By Beth Clay - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a MUST READ for every pediatrician, parent and politician. Having been the staff lead on the House Oversight Committee with Congressman Burton, this book is a welcomed addition to the body of work which validates our concern - that Mercury needs to be removed from vaccines (and all medicines). Mercury in all its forms is potent toxin that can harm the brain, the heart, the kidneys. It disrupts the immune and gastric systems. I have been horrified to see the corrupt manner in which the public health community responded to calls for improve vaccine safety and an elimination of thimerosal. Name calling, paid shills, fear mongering and hiding the truth from the public.

The long held standards of scientific hierarchy were tossed aside to rely on epidemiological studies of questionable quality and some of it conducted by a a scientist who is now on the HHS OIG Most Wanted Fugitives list. Hard science - animal studies have always taken precedent in these type of analysis until HHS looked at this issue.

I am thrilled to see someone else also say it is time to stop the name calling - that people who advocate for safer vaccines are not anti-vaccines. (No one calls someone who advocates for safer cars anti-car!) Rather than fulfill their initial call to get mercury out, HHS and public health community went into protective mode and did a great deal of harm to their own credibility.

It is time to stop the madness and get the mercury out.

Thank you Mr. Kennedy, Dr. Herbert and Dr. Hyman for putting your own reputations on the line and stepping into this important issue.
