      "... Is there a spiritual
      world where our children come from and seek the cohesion of their
      incarnation and the cohesion of their capacities and meet adversary
      opposition in the very forming of childhood?

      The effect of Mercury into the forming of the
      brains of children...should have been uncovered before the untold
      disaster disrupted the integrations of astral, etheric...and
      particualar in the astral and nervous system ordering of refined
      capacities, the autism rather locks the victim out from using and
      maintaining a healthy foundation of thinking, feeling and will.
      Michael School spirits are attacked before the etheric body has
      formed, by injections, that rip the refined cohesion of Michael
      Intelligence that might have arisen.

      Temple Grandin was one who I spent a good deal of time and interest


      "Dr. Grandin didn't talk until she was three and a half years old,
      communicating her frustration instead by screaming, peeping and
      humming. In 1950, she was labeled "autistic," and her parents were
      told she should be institutionalized. She tells her story
      of "groping her way from the far side of darkness" in her book
      Emergence: Labeled Autistic, a book which stunned the world because,
      until its publication, most professionals and parents assumed being
      diagnosed "autistic" was virtually a death sentence to achievement
      or productivity in life."

      Pharma's Poisoned Generation


      "A growing number of professionals in the health care field are
      reporting that a relationship exists between the epidemic in
      neurodevelopmental disorders of autism, attention deficit
      hyperactive disorder, and speech or language delay all across the
      country, and the use of thimerosal, the mercury-based preservative
      used in childhood vaccines.

      Vaccines are the only medicines that Americans are mandated to
      receive as a condition for attendance in school and day care, and
      for some types of employment. Parents who receive federal assistance
      are also required to show proof that their children have been

      While the mandate for which vaccines must be included on the vaccine
      schedule is a state mandate, it is the Centers for Disease Control
      and Prevention (CDC) and its Advisory Committee that make the
      recommendations to which the majority of states adhere when
      determining mandates. The current epidemic actually began in the
      late 1980s when a large number of new vaccines were added to the

      The blame is at least partially attributable to the failure of
      government officials to keep track of the cumulative amounts of
      mercury as they added triple-dose-vaccines to the schedule and the
      amount of thimerosal was multiplied by three.

      Each new vaccine contained 25 micrograms of mercury and according to
      Professor Lynn Adams, of Radford University, who specializes in
      autism, by 1999, a study determined that the average child received
      33 doses of 10 different vaccines by the age 5.

      Elected lawmakers first became aware of the problem in 1999, when
      the House Committee on Government Reform initiated an investigation
      into the dangers of mercury exposure. An alarm rang early about the
      exposure of children to thimerosal.

      By October 25, 2000, Committee Chairman, Dan Burton (R-IN), was
      trying to get the substance out of vaccines as quickly as possible
      and sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services,
      asking the director to get the FDA to recall all vaccines with

      "We all know and accept that mercury is a neurotoxin, and yet the
      FDA has failed to recall the 50 vaccines that contain Thimerosal,"
      Burton wrote. "Every day that mercury-containing vaccines remain on
      the market is another day HHS is putting 8,000 children at risk," he

      "I implore you to conduct a full recall of these products," he
      wrote. "If the only action ... is a gradual phase out, children will
      continue to be put at risk every day," Burton warned. "These
      vaccines will continue to be injected in children for years to come -
      putting our nation's most vulnerable population ... at risk for
      mercury poisoning," he added.

      The Reform Committee soon discovered that regulatory agencies were
      still allowing thimerosal to be used decades after the recognition
      that it was harmful. The Committee was told that the Food and Drug
      Administration, (FDA), uses a subjective barometer in determining
      when a product that has known risks can remain on the market.
      According to the agency:

      "at the heart of all FDA's product evaluation decisions is a
      judgment about whether a new product's benefits to users will
      outweigh its risks. No regulated product is totally risk-free, so
      these judgments are important. The FDA will allow a product to
      present more of a risk when its potential benefit is great—
      especially for products used to treat serious, life-threatening

      The argument that the known risks of infectious diseases outweighs
      any potential risk of neurological damage is one that has
      continuously been used by officials. The FDA claims that any risk
      from thimerosal is theoretical because no proof of harm exists.

      However, after its review of scientific literature and listening to
      the testimony of witnesses, the Committee found plenty of evidence
      to support the fact that thimerosal posed a grave risk. "The
      possible risk for harm from either low dose chronic or one time high
      level (bolus dose) exposure to thimerosal is not "theoretical," but
      very real and documented in the medical literature," the Committee

      The Committee also discovered that regulatory agencies have never
      required drug companies to conduct studies on the use of thimerosal.
      During a June 20, 2002, hearing, Burton questioned officials from
      the FDA and CDC and said, "You mean to tell me that since 1929,
      we've been using Thimerosal and the only test that you know of is
      from 1929, and every one of those people had mennigitis, and they
      all died?"

      In his opening statement at a July 18, 2000, hearing, Burton said:

      "We assume that the FDA would protect our children from exposure to
      any level of mercury through drugs. But that hasn't been the case.
      Thimerosal was first marketed in 1930 and has become the most widely
      used preservative in vaccines. It is present in over 50 licensed

      "The FDA recently acknowledged that in the first six months of life,
      children get more mercury than is considered safe by the EPA,"
      Burton noted. "The truth is that sometimes kids go to their doctor's
      office and get four or five vaccines at the same time," he added.

      "My grandson received vaccines for nine different diseases in one
      day," Burton said. "He may have been exposed to 62.5 micrograms of
      mercury in one day through his vaccines."

      "According to his weight, the maximum safe level of mercury he
      should be exposed to in one day is 1.51 micrograms," Burton
      advised. "This is forty-one times the amount at which harm can be
      caused," he added.

      In his opening remarks at a June 19, 2002, hearing, Burton described
      the devastation of witnessing the correlation between vaccines and

      "My only grandson became autistic right before my eyes – shortly
      after receiving his federally recommended and state-mandated
      vaccines. Without a full explanation of what was in the shots being
      given, my talkative, playful, outgoing, healthy, grandson Christian
      was subjected to very high levels of mercury through his vaccines.
      He also received the MMR vaccine. Within a few days he was showing
      signs of autism."

      People often wonder why regulatory officials would protect drug
      makers. In large part, because the CDC and FDA policy decisions are
      made through advisory panels whose members have financial
      relationships with the same companies they are charged to regulate.

      The decisions of the 300 experts who sit on the FDA's 18 advisory
      committees affect billions of dollars in sales. The panel members
      play a crucial role in determining what drugs will be approved and
      participate in just about every major decision related to industry

      When it comes to vaccines, the large population in the USA
      transforms into a lucrative customer base when our government makes
      vaccines mandatory and keeps adding more and more to the list.
      Between 2003 and 2006, it was predicted that the annual global
      market for vaccines would rise from $6 billion to $10 billion, by
      Mark Benjamin for United Press International on July 21, 2003.

      Investors follow the decisions made by the advisory panels closely.
      A favorable vote by a committee can add hundreds of millions of
      dollars to a company's stock value which also means the potential
      for corruption in the panels is enormous.

      In a July 18, 2000 hearing, Burton mentioned the problem. "We have a
      lot of doctors who serve on Federal advisory committees who have
      serious conflicts-of-interest problems. They're allowed to vote on
      vaccines made by companies that they get money from."

      An analysis conducted by USA Today, of 159 FDA advisory committee
      meetings that took place between January 1, 1998, and June 30, 2000,
      revealed conflicts of interest were wide-spread:

      At 92% of the meetings, at least one member had a financial conflict
      of interest.

      At least one committee member had a financial stake in the topic
      under review at 146 of 159 advisory committee meetings.

      At 55% of meetings, half or more of the FDA advisers had conflicts
      of interest.

      At the 102 meetings dealing with the fate of a specific drug, 33% of
      the experts had a financial conflict.

      Many parents are now refusing to vaccinate their children because
      they believe there is an on-going conspiracy by government officials
      and the pharmaceutical industry to boost profits by mandating
      unnecessary vaccines, while at the same time, denying their
      potential for harm. Congressman Burton addressed this issue in a
      June 19, 2002 hearing:

      "Parents are increasingly concerned that the Department may be
      inherently conflicted in its multiple roles of promoting
      immunization, regulating manufacturers, looking for adverse events,
      managing the vaccine injury compensation program, and developing new
      vaccines. Families share my concern that vaccine manufacturers have
      too much influence as well."

      Burton also noted the need to get honest about the current
      epidemic. "As representatives of the people, we have a
      responsibility to ensure that our public health officials are
      adequately and honestly addressing this epidemic and its possible
      links to vaccine injury," he said.

      In May 2003, the Reform Committee, released a report that said
      the "FDA and the CDC failed in their duty to be vigilant as new
      vaccines containing thimerosal were approved and added to the
      immunization schedule."

      As an example the report cited the Hepatitis B vaccine. "When the
      Hepatitis B and Haemophilus Influenzae Type b vaccines were added to
      the recommended schedule of childhood immunizations, the cumulative
      amount of ethylmercury to which children were exposed nearly
      tripled." The report identified thimerosal as the cause of the
      autism and chastised the FDA:

      "Thimerosal used as a preservative in vaccines is directly related
      to the autism epidemic. This epidemic in all probability may have
      been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the
      switch regarding a lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal
      and the sharper eyes of infant exposure to this known neurotoxin.
      The public health agencies failure to act is indicative of
      institutional malfeasance for self protection and misplaced
      protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry."

      Many people have not yet recognized the seriousness of the epidemic,
      largely because the majority of people have not seen many autistic
      children due to the fact that parents seldom take their affected
      children out in public because of the difficulty in trying to
      control them in a strange environment.

      However, the rising numbers in special education classes in the
      nation's public school system provides a clear measurement of how
      wide-spread the epidemic has become. State by state statistics for
      students with autism from the Department of Education for the 12-
      year period between 1992-93 and 2003-04, are almost unbelievable.
      For instance, in Ohio in 1992-93, there were only 22 cases of
      autism, by 2003-04 there were 5,146. In Illinois, there were only 5
      cases twelve years ago and 6,005 in 2003-04. Wisconsin had 18 cases
      of autism in 1992-93 and the numbers rose to 3,259 in 2003-04.

      The true reality of these statistics will register in the not too
      distant future. "With eighty percent of autistic Americans under the
      age of 18, the dramatic impact of this crisis will be felt by
      taxpayers in the coming years when these autistic children become
      adults," says Anne McElroy Dachel, Media Relations Coordinator for
      the National Autism Association.

      Most vaccines on the immunization schedule now are said to be
      thimerosal-free but some still do contain trace amounts. "An
      exception is the flu shot, which the Centers for Disease Control and
      Prevention recommends for pregnant women and for infants 6 to 23
      months old," advises Don Olmsted in United Press International on
      November 19, 2005.

      For 6 to 23-month-old infants, the schedule calls for two flu shots
      that contain 12.5 micrograms of thimerosal each to be given a month
      apart. "That total of is the same amount that was in vaccines some
      parents believe triggered their child's autism," Olmsted
      advises. "And some of them believe in utero exposure to mercury via
      the pregnant mother might be the most dangerous exposure of all," he

      When deciding whether mercury-laced flu vaccines are safe for
      children, parents had better think long and hard before rolling the
      dice. "
