Gewerkschaften schalten Frankreich den Strom ab

 



Die französische Regierung will die Wochenarbeitszeit radikal verlängern und den Kündigungsschutz lockern. Außerdem sollen Unternehmer aus den Tarifverträgen für die Branche aussteigen könne. Gegen ein entsprechendes Gesetz geht die französische Bevölkerung seit Monaten auf die Straße. Gestern haben sich die Arbeiter in den Atomkraftwerken den Streiks angeschlossen. Seit Montag werden bereits die Raffinerien blockiert. Didier Baur erklärt gegenüber RT: „Wir werden für Schwierigkeiten bei der Stromversorgung sorgen.“ Der Ingenieur John Large erläutert die Risiken. Mehr auf unserer Webseite:https://deutsch.rt.com/

New Amphetamine-Based ADHD Medication for Children Disguised as Candy

May 24, 2016   |   Carey Wedler

(ANTIMEDIA) Just weeks after the FDA banned the sale of e-cigarettes to children, arguing the variety of flavors could spur addiction, a new, potentially addictive ADHD drug for kids has hit the market — in candy form. Commercial efforts were ‘ramped up’ this week to promote the FDA-approved extended release chewable, which represents the latest manifestation of the pharmaceutical industry’s attempts to profit from the over-diagnosed condition.
Adzenys is a drug similar to Adderall produced by Neos Therapeutics, and its fruit-flavored, chewable form and extended release features make it a “milestone,” according to Neos CEO and president Vipin K. Garg. The Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) treatment is also different because rather than coming in a pill bottle, it comes in blister packs, which makes it quicker and more convenient to use. “Garg says the new, quick-dissolving formulation will help harried mothers get their kids medicated faster before school,” STAT News, a science-oriented offshoot of the Boston Globesummarized. The drug is also intended for use in adults.
According to the FDA, which deemed the pharmaceutical safe in January, “CNS [central nervous system] stimulants, including ADZENYS XR-ODT, other amphetamine-containing products, and methylphenidate, have a high potential for abuse and dependence [emphasis added]” The agency cautions that for children aged six to twelve, common side effects — designated as occurring in over 5 percent of subjects in trials — include “loss of appetite, insomnia, abdominal pain, emotional lability, vomiting, nervousness, nausea, and fever.”
Further, the FDA warns it can cause stunted growth in children, and among kids with cardiac abnormalities, it is linked to “sudden death.” Further still, it “may cause psychotic or manic symptoms in patients with no prior history, or exacerbation of symptoms in patients with pre-existing psychosis,” advises the agency that deemed the drug safe for children. The FDA also approved oxycontin, a highly addictive opiate, for use in children last year.
In spite of the FDA’s own warnings, Garg’s enthusiasm for the new drug was evidently so great he mobilized efforts to promote it for children “ahead of back-to-school season,” STAT reported. “We’re launching now at full speed,” Garg said. Interestingly, public school policies have been implicated in the over-diagnosis of ADHD.
The company’s plan to push the drug should come as no surprise considering their stock prices soared after the FDA formally approved the drug in January. “The Grand Prairie-based company’s stock traded as much as 67 percent higher and ended Thursday with a gain of $3.96 a share, or 42 percent, to close at $13.38,” the Dallas Morning Newsreported at the time.
Neos Therapeutics was also encouraged by medical professionals’ receptivity to the new drug. “The company has 125 sales reps across the United States, and they’re having ‘no problem’ getting appointments with doctors interested in prescribing this new formulation, Garg said,” STAT wrote. “The product is winning support from doctors who see it as a convenient way to give children the drugs they need. And analysts are generally bullish about Neos’s prospects.”
However, doctors have been widely criticized for their role in what many view as the over-diagnosis of ADHD — though they are not the only culprits. Psychologists who define the guidelines for psychological disorders in theDSM-5 are also to blame. A study published in the British Medical Journal found widening definitions of the disorder contribute to higher rates of diagnoses, also noting that “Among the work group advisers of DSM-5 for ADHD and disruptive behaviour disorders, 78% disclosed links to drug companies as a potential financial conflict of interest.”
Still, much of the increase in ADHD diagnoses and treatment can be attributed to aggressive marketing efforts from pharmaceutical companies. As the New York Times reported in 2013:
“The rise of A.D.H.D. diagnoses and prescriptions for stimulants over the years coincided with a remarkably successful two-decade campaign by pharmaceutical companies to publicize the syndrome and promote the pills to doctors, educators and parents. With the children’s market booming, the industry is now employing similar marketing techniques as it focuses on adult A.D.H.D., which could become even more profitable.”
One example includes the makers of Adderall subsidizing 50,000 copies of a comic strip promoting the drug, though the advertising techniques often vary. Indeed, the number of children on ADHD medication catapulted from 600,000 in 1990 to 3.5 million in 2013. As many as 10,000 toddlers take drugs like Adderrall and Ritalin for the condition.
As Dr. Kenneth Connors, a psychologist and professor emeritus at Duke University who originally helped legitimize ADHD, said, “The numbers [spanning 1990 to 2013] make it look like an epidemic. Well, it’s not. It’s preposterous.” He added, “This is a concoction to justify the giving out of medication at unprecedented and unjustifiable levels.” Unsurprisingly, sales for amphetamines increased fivefold over a decade — $1.7 billion to $9 billion from 2002 to 2012.
Dr. Mukund Gnanadesikan, a child and adolescent psychiatrist in Napa, California, commented on the emergence of Adzenys. As STAT noted, he said “Presenting amphetamines in a tasty, convenient package is ‘a recipe for people to request it and then sell it.’”
“I’m not a big fan of controlled substances that come in forms that can be easily abused — and certainly a chewable drug falls into that category,” he added.

Imminent intervention? Greece, Italy & Malta close their airspace for aircraft departing from Libya

Imminent intervention? Greece, Italy & Malta close their airspace for aircraft departing from Libya

Weird things are happening in the Mediterranean Sea. Almost simultaneously three countries in the Mediterranean have closed their airspace and territories for aircraft departing from Libya. The exceptions are very few and could hind on the transport of military and evacuees. At the same time, three NATO exercises are taking place but the airspace closure and directly little to do with that.
The first country to close its airspace for aircraft departing from Libya” was Italy, followed by Malta. Today it was Greece’s turn. All three countries issued relevant NOTAMs:
Italy on May 11 and closes the airspace May 11 – August 8 2016, consequently at the same period Malta that issued the NOTAM on May 12.

A Bill Clinton Rape Survivor Just Told Us the Real Story the Media Refuses to Tell

May 25, 2016   |   ANTIMEDIA


(ANTIMEDIA
“I looked at him straight in the eyes and I told him to go to hell,” said 73-year-old Juanita Broaddrick on Tuesday, speaking on Anti-Media Radio about the only experience she had with the man since she says he raped her in 1978.
It had been 13 years since Broaddrick’s horrific encounter in a Little Rock, Arkansas hotel room when, in 1991, she found herself back in the state capitol for a seminar of nursing home administrators. She says she was told someone needed to speak with her in the hallway of the building where the event was being held. “Just as I went around the corner, there he was. And it was very shocking to me,” she said.
“And he came over to me and started apologizing profusely for what he had done to me back in 1978, and was just saying all these things — and I was just flabbergasted. And he kept saying, ‘I’m a changed man’ and ‘I have a family’ and ‘I’m just not that person that I used to be.’”
She says less than a week after her attacker apologized, he announced he was running for president.
Out of fear and in denial, Broaddrick did not go public with the accusation Bill Clinton had raped her until she was interviewed on NBC’s Dateline in 1999. She says that experience so frightened her, she failed even to recount the incident in an affidavit amid an investigation during the Clinton presidency.
Though she doesn’t like the word “rape,” Broaddrick insists it is the only term sufficient to describe what Bill Clinton did to her while running for governor when he still served as the attorney general for Arkansas.
It isn’t a new accusation, of course, but Broaddrick’s story is making headlines once again as Hillary Clinton inches closer to the Democratic nomination.
In 1978, Broaddrick attended a nursing home conference and, despite reservations, allowed Bill Clinton to accompany her to her hotel room because, as she told Anti-Media, her “business depended on the State of Arkansas.” As she tells it, Broaddrick was under the impression Clinton wanted to discuss the nursing home where she was employed — “our rates, everything to do with business depended on cooperation from the State of Arkansas, which he [as state attorney general] was the head of.”

Listen below in its entirety – Juanita Broaddrick: In Her Own Words – A Conversation with Anti-Media

It turned out to be a fateful error in judgment. Broaddrick alleges Clinton bit her lip, to the point it began bleeding, and — as she says must be described — he raped her.
“You know, I could not say the word ‘rape’ for years — it’s just been in the last year or so, and of course on the [1999] Dateline interview, that I said the word,” she explained to Anti-Media“But it’s hard to say. It’s hard to say the ‘r’ word — I usually say ‘sexual assault.’ But rape is what happened. Rape is the correct terminology, so I can say that now.”
Rape, as she explained, isn’t the extent of the difficulties Broaddrick has encountered in her dealings with the Clintons.
“It was only about two or three weeks after the assault took place” when Broaddrick had to take care of some business during an event attended by the couple. Chuck Watts, a local pharmacist at the time, approached Broaddrick as she was preparing to leave, telling her that when he drove the Clintons from the airport to the event, “the topic of the whole conversation all the way from the airport was about you.”
“It made me very nervous,” she noted. But then, she says, an unidentified woman in the kitchen pointed Hillary and Bill Clinton in Broaddrick’s direction — and Hillary came directly toward her.
“She comes straight over to me and starts profusely thanking me for all that I was doing in the campaign to help elect Bill,” Broaddrick said. “And then, I just started to turn and walk away — I just wanted to get out of there. And she took ahold of my arm with one hand and my hand with the other hand, and she pulled me close to her. And she said, ‘Do you understand everything you do?’ And it just sent chills up my spine.
“I took my hand from hers and I glared back at her, and I told my friends, ‘let’s go.’”
She says she continued to see Bill Clinton “in passing,” such as at nursing home conventions when Bill served as Governor of Arkansas, but says she didn’t speak to him until the 1991 incident when she was told someone was waiting for her in the hallway and he attempted to apologize.
“I went out, and the other nurses followed me because they were concerned it was an emergency from home; and the man pointed me down around the corner, and when I went down there — Bill Clinton stood there,” she said. That was the incident in which she claims she told him to go to hell.
The brief encounter so disturbed Broaddrick that as she walked away, she “started crying … it was just an upsetting situation, for him to apologize to me like that,” she said.
Asked if she thought Clinton was sincere in that apology, she responded, “I did. And my nurses and I talked about that all the way home from Little Rock, and we kept saying, ‘Is he really sorry? Does he really mean … is he really wanting your forgiveness?’ And we actually thought it might be possible, until we heard in a couple days he had thrown his hat in the ring for president … He was just covering his bases.”
According to Broaddrick, that was not the end of her experience with him. For some time, she claims she was “followed” — constantly — during the time just prior to her going public on national television in 1999. “There were just different cars that would follow me around, they would wait on the highway, and they would follow me to my nursing home and then they would go on. And then I would see the same car follow me home — they never came to my home,” she noted, because a security gate was in place; but “it was unnerving.”
During her discussion with Anti-Media, she recalled another incident that occurred around the same time period while she was on a ski trip in Colorado. “Someone broke into my home,” Broaddrick claims, and she knew this because, though she left her cat securely inside, “when we got home from Colorado, my cat was outside.” And “the only thing missing from my home, strangely,” she noted, “was the small cassette tape from her answering machine. That was the only thing missing from my house. Why would anybody want that?” Indeed.
While Bill Clinton is no stranger to accusations of sexual misconduct — the former president was, after all, impeached over events stemming from his extramarital affair with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky — Hillary Clinton continually touts women’s rights.
In fact, Clinton recently tweeted — in the face of accusations she has laughed off her husband’s accusers —“Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.” Broaddrick responded in kind, tweeting, “I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73 … it never goes away.”
Though the alleged rape still weighs heavily on Broaddrick, as she explained, Clinton “essentially, for years, ruined my life; but I’m not going to let him do that anymore. You know I’ve taken my life back.” What helped her do so, in part, was the apology from Bill Clinton in 1991 —whether he meant it or not.
“That really took a weight off of my mind and my heart and everything, because, I thought, it’s true. He’s responsible for this. I’m not responsible for allowing the attorney general of Arkansas to come to my room to talk about nursing home matters. I’m not responsible anymore. And that’s the frame of mind that I am in today.”
Certain details about Broaddrick’s accusations against the former president have stood up to scrutiny during investigations by the press, though the rape itself has never been proven or disproven. In denial — and terrified of the implications for her job, her workplace, and her personal life — Broaddrick did not file a police report at the time. Though mainstream media largely either attacks her allegations as fabrications — or worse, attacks Broaddrick’s integrity and credibility — one corroborating point remains.
From the time she first came forward in 1999, Broaddrick’s account of the alleged attack by Bill Clinton has not changed — nor has she sought financial gain through interviews, book deals, hush money, nor in any other manner.
As countless member boards, groups, and support networks across the country attest, going public after a sexual assault can be the most beneficial way for a victim to begin healing. Though it would be impossible now to prove or disprove what Broaddrick claims happened, her unchanging story and lack of either personal or financial gain from recounting her rape might lend credibility the press should reconsider.
And her unwavering account of the chilling moment she, as an alleged victim of rape, crossed paths with Hillary Clinton — if it occurred as Broaddrick says it did — should not be discounted, either. Asked whether there was a message she would like to convey to the public about the Clintons for hers and others’ alleged assaults, Broaddrick told Anti-Media:
“I have no idea, except, shame on them for all that they’ve done to hurt women, and especially the women that he abused. And shame on her for thinking that she is eligible, at all, to be President of the United States.”

Attorney Takes On State of California on Forced Vaccination

Attorney Takes On State of California on Forced Vaccination



Almost a year ago, Governor Brown of California signed SB277 for mandatory vaccines which has been set to go into effect on July 1, 2016.The bill was prompted by the 2014 Disneyland measles outbreak and historically low levels of vaccination in some California schools. This law removes all exemptions: religious, medical, and philosophical. However, attorney T. Matthew Phillips believes the first amendment allows parents to exercise religion in the face of state-mandated vaccinations. He also says that children have a constitutional right to go to school, regardless of medical procedures. Ultimately a judge will decide which is more important: educating kids or vaccinating them.
Will mandatory vaccination for adults be next? Will 49 other states then require mandatory vaccination? We’re teetering on a slippery slope on what could be required for the greater good. First amendment rights were established to restrain the majority trying to subdue the rights of the individual. Look at what happened in Nazi Germany.
This is the only lawsuit that has been filed against the issue and has received no media attention. Please listen to the podcast below or browse the transcript and pass this link around to as many as you know.

The Women Who Make H&M's Clothes Are Fired For Getting Pregnant | Broadly

The Women Who Make H&M's Clothes Are Fired For Getting Pregnant | Broadly

A new report from the Asia Floor Wage Alliance finds evidence of widespread exploitation in H&M supplier factories in Cambodia and India. We spoke to labor activists to find out about how much life really sucks when you're making a $5.99 tank top.
Mere days after the Sri Lankan factories producing Beyoncé's much hyped collaboration were accused of exploiting workers, another high street clothing giant is at the centre of a labor storm.
Research from the Asia Floor Wage Alliance accuses Swedish retailer H&M of routinely exploiting workers across India and Cambodia. The report collates interviews with 251 workers in H&M supplier factories, and alleges numerous violations of international best practice in labor standards. The survey makes for uncomfortable reading, and paints a grim picture of life for the Asian and predominantly female workforce that stitches your cut-price clothing.
If you are a garment worker in an H&M supplier factory in Cambodia and India, becoming pregnant may well cause you to lose your job. The report alleges that employees from 11 out of 12 factories in Cambodia reported witnessing or experiencing termination of employment during pregnancy. All 50 workers surveyed from Indian supplier factories also told investigators that women were routinely fired from their jobs during pregnancies. Meanwhile, sexual harassment in the workplace is commonplace—in Cambodia alone, workers from nine out of 12 factories reported experiencing it in their workplaces.

Hillary In Trouble: State Department Says Clinton Did Not Comply With Record Policies: Full Report | Zero Hedge

Hillary In Trouble: State Department Says Clinton Did Not Comply With Record Policies: Full Report | Zero Hedge


In a surprising reversal, what many thought was impossible, namely the State Department cracking down on its former head and Democratic presidential frontrunner, Hillary Clinton, seems all too possible following news that the State Department Inspector General audit has faulted Hillary Clinton, other secretaries of state for poorly managing electronic communications.
  • CLINTON'S FAILURE TO SURRENDER ALL EMAILS DEALING WITH DEPARTMENT BUSINESS BEFORE LEAVING GOVERNMENT VIOLATED POLICY -INSPECTOR GENERAL
As WaPo summarizes, the IG found that Clinton’s use of private email for public business was “not an appropriate method” of preserving documents and that her practices failed to comply with department policies meant to ensure that federal record laws are followed.
The report says Clinton should have printed and saved her emails during her four years in office or surrendered her work-related correspondence immediately upon stepping down in February 2013. Instead, Clinton provided those records in December 2014, nearly two years after leaving office.
The report found that a top Clinton aide was warned in 2010 that the system may not properly preserve records but dismissed those worries, indicating that the system passed legal muster. But the inspector general said it could not show evidence of a review by legal counsel.

As Politico adds, the State Department inspector general concluded that Hillary Clinton did not comply with the agency’s policies on records, according to a report released to lawmakers on Wednesday that also revealed that Clinton and her top aides chose not to cooperate with the review.
The agency on Wednesday released the long-awaited report to Capitol Hill, copy of which was obtained by POLITICO, providing just the latest turn in the headache-inducing saga that has dogged Clinton's campaign.
While the report concludes that the agency suffers from "longstanding, systemic weaknesses" with records that "go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State,” it specifically dings Clinton for her exclusive use of private email.

The US War Machine’s Annual Budget Could Buy Every Homeless American a $1 Million


Washington, D.C. – In 2015, the United States spent more on its war machine than the next six countries combined, with a total of $596 billion spent on military expenditures. This week the U.S. House of Representatives passed its version of the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), with roughly $602 billion slated to be spent on military programs and armaments in the 2017 budget.
To put this amount in perspective, the U.S. spent more on its military than the next six nations combined, with China coming in second at $215 billion, followed by Saudi Arabia at $87 billion, Russia at $66 billion, with the United Kingdom, India and France spending roughly $50 billion each on defense expenses.

Screen Shot 2016-05-21 at 10.47.07 AM

When looking at this spending in context, the U.S. not only spends more than the next six countries combined, but spends almost triple the amount on military expenses than the second biggest defense spender in the world, China, according to data from the Stockholm International Peach Research Institute.
These figures come on top of the recently announced $1 trillion dollar nuclear missile modernization program that has been curiously absent from public discourse, having not even been mentioned in the televised presidential debates.
All of this comes as the U.S. pivots from the “Global War on Terror,“ to a more traditional defense posture. The reasoning behind this is simple; who needs new tanks, bombers, fighters and missiles to fight ISIS or al-Qaeda? There simply wasn’t enough money to be made in bombing jihadists in tents in the desert, thus the drums of war in the media, regarding an “aggressive Russia,” began to be played as to allow for the return of traditional military-industrial complex/Cold War posturing.
The sheer enormity of the sums being given to the military-industrial complex is enough to boggle the mind. Think for a moment how else that $600 billion could be spent to actually assist in creating growth rather than death.
Consider that in January 2015, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) found there were 564,708 homeless people on a given night in the United States – the government could actually purchase a $1 million dollar home for each individual homeless person in the U.S. and still have money left over.
Or perhaps the money could be spent on the rapidly eroding domestic U.S. nuclear infrastructure. Although the media spotlight is rarely shined upon America’s aging nuclear infrastructure, U.S. nuclear power plants are decaying rapidly, precipitating numerous nuclear environmental disasters across the country. The Free Thought Project recently reported on four nuclear disasters playing out across the country, with massive amounts of radioactive material having been leaked.
Rather than investing in these terminal goods, such as bombs and bullets, which are meant for destruction, we should be investing in capital goods that are able to provide growth. The U.S. war machine spends hundreds of billions of dollars per year waging war against humanity, while Americans at home are dying from a crumbling nuclear infrastructure and crippling poverty.

Bright Artificial Lighting Causes Havoc On Metabolism, Especially After a Meal


Most scientists agree that artificial lighting and modern technology available across the world disrupts our natural environment and affects our metabolism. According to a Northwestern Medicine study, bright light exposure increased insulin resistance compared to dim light exposure in both the morning and the evening. In the evening, bright light also caused higher peak glucose (blood sugar) levels.
All life evolved with the electromagnetic frequencies from the sun and the earth, and these frequencies are considered essential to all life. Life itself synchronizes and harmonizes with these frequencies. But what happens when these frequencies are disrupted by modern technology?

With the growing use of energy saving lamps and the development of new lighting technologies, comes the long-term concern that some people who have conditions that react to light might be negatively affected by this shift.

Artificial light is composed of visible light as well as some ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiations, and there is a consideration that the emission levels of some lamps could be harmful for the brain, levels, skin and the eyes. Artificial light can also disrupt the human body clock and the hormonal system, and this can cause health problems. The ultraviolet and the blue components of light have the greatest potential to cause harm.

The effect of light on cells depends on the radiation and its wavelength, the type of cell, the chromophore, and the chemical reaction involved. When light illuminates matter it can heat it up, and this is the main effect of IR. Visible and UV light can also start chemical reactions if they reach appropriate absorbing molecules called chromophores, and these are very abundant in skin and eye cells. Visible and IRA radiations penetrate deepest into the skin and eye and can reach as far as the retina. UVC, IRB and IRC penetrate the least. 

Study 

Insulin resistance is the body's inability to adequately move glucose out of the bloodstream, resulting in a buildup of blood sugar. Over time, the excess blood glucose could result in increased body fat, weight gain and a higher risk for diabetes.
"These results provide further evidence that bright light exposure may influence metabolism," said Kathryn Reid, senior study author and a research associate professor of neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
"It's cool that bright light has this effect, but we don't understand why yet," Reid said. "In theory, you could use light to manipulate metabolic function."
Previous research by Northwestern scientists showed that people who received the majority of their bright light in the morning weighed less than those who were exposed to most of their bright light after 12 p.m. The researchers wanted to understand why. Mouse studies also have shown that mice kept in constant light have altered glucose metabolism and gain weight compared to control mice.
"Our findings show that insulin was unable to acutely bring glucose levels back to a baseline level following a meal with bright light exposure in the evening," said first author Ivy Cheung, a post doctoral fellow in neurology at Feinberg. "The results of this study emphasize that our lighting environment impacts our health outcomes."
There is increasing evidence that light and dark exposure patterns over time impact health outcomes such as body weight and food intake. The aim of the Northwestern study was to examine the acute effects of three hours of morning or evening blue-enriched light exposure compared to dim light on hunger, metabolic function and physiological arousal.
Nineteen healthy adults were randomized to three hours of blue-enriched light exposure starting either 0.5 hours after waking (morning group) or 10.5 hours after waking (evening group). Each person's results were compared to their dim light exposure results as a baseline. The morning group ate breakfast in the light; the evening group ate dinner in the light.
The study showed blue-enriched light exposure acutely altered metabolic function in both the morning and the evening compared to dim light. While morning and evening blue-enriched light exposure both resulted in higher insulin resistance, evening blue-enriched light led to higher peak glucose. This suggests a greater inability of insulin to adequately compensate for the increase in glucose in the evening.

Office workers and school children are exposed to some UV and blue light from fluorescent lamps and task-lamps, for up to 8 hours a day. Those working in factories or large stores are exposed throughout the working day to more intense light sources and considerations should be made on the long-term health risks.

CDC Forced to Release Proof They Knew Vaccine Preservative Causes Autism

Over 100 Freedom of Records Act (FOIA) requests have finally forced the euphemist US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to admit a widely used vaccine preservative is the equivalent of a neurological armageddon.
With help from PhD Scientist and Biochemist, Brian Hooker, the agency has finally had to reveal that they have known for years that thimerosal, which was banned in 1999, but still used in over 60 vaccines, causes autism. Robert F. Kennedy has been trying to alert the public of the same troublesome findings that Hooker has unveiled, but he is often dismissed, or worse, made into a media fool by the pharmaceutical industry.

What is Thimerosal and Why Should I Care?

Thimerosal is a mercury-based vaccine adjuvant (preservative) that causes a number of brain-injuring problems, with autism among them. Thimerosal is also a human carcinogen, mutagen, and teratogen that also interrupts the immune system and interrupts proper fetal development.
Thimerosal, is metabolized into toxic, and highly dangerous methylmercury. From there, the methylmercury is converted into the even more harmful, persistent, inorganic mercury that is retained in our physical tissues to wreck havoc on our health. For the immune-sensitive, this is the equivalent of a one-two punch. That must be why the World Health Organization (WHO) thinks thimerosal is ‘safe.’ It follows right along with their covert agenda to thin the herd.
There is no safe level of exposure to this neurotoxin, yet it is still used widely by Merck, Eli Lilly, and numerous other pharmaceutical companies. It is also still used in almost every flu vaccine currently administered.
According to Hooker, hundreds of thousands of babies born between 1991 and 1997, had their vaccine files analyzed by CDC epidemiologist Thomas Verstraeten, MD. Hooker says that this, “proves unequivocally that during 2000, CDC officers were knowledgeable internally of the very high hazard of autism, non-natural sleep problem and speech disorder associated with Thimerosal exposure.”

CDC as a Murderous Agency

These alarming facts, along with the testimony of whistleblowers like Kennedy expose the CDC as a dangerous, even murderous, government agency that cannot be trusted. They have lied to scientific bodies, fixed data, and withheld important information that could have prevented any number of autism cases, among other health dangers.
