There seems to be much “confusion” on the entire Swine Flu Vaccine news hitting the mainstream media lately. Most of the confusion however is without a doubt caused by those very same mainstream media outlets themselves. They lead doctors in to answers and twist questions around to get the responses they want.
A good example is of Peter Mansbridge this evening on the CBC. He completely avoided the ingredient Thimerosal from his discussion and went on about another ingredient which has been used in Europe for many years and has proven to be “safe”. Mr. Mansbridge was confused about Immunologic adjuvants used to trigger an enhanced immune system response in vaccines given in Europe. The real issue Mr. Mansbridge is the mercury preservative used in the ingredient Thimerosal. Now many will argue, “oh thimerosal is safe, it’s ethylmercury, not methylmercury”, if that is the case, then why was it described as being a neurotoxin in the Thimerosal Study Sas Program done by Tom Verstraeten of the Center for Disease Control.

Also, the CDC’s very own findings in their Thimerosal Vaccine Safety Data-Link Study show that “Among males, higher exposure was associated with poorer performance with attention and executive functioning (Brief Parent Rating of Behavioral Regulation test), and a higher likelihood of motor and phonic tics reported by the child assessor were observed.” and “Among females, higher exposure was associated with poorer scores on one test of verbal intellectual functioning (WASI Verbal IQ) and a lower likelihood of motor tics reported by parents were observed.”
