In Europe only the polio vaccine is mandatory. Dr. Geier supports vaccination against polio. However, he is adamantly opposed to flu vaccines. The flu vaccine given almost universally uses Thimerosal as a preservative. Each dose of Thimerosal contains 25 micrograms of ethyl mercury. Multiplied by Avogadro’s Number, 25 mcg = 75 quadrillion atoms of mercury.
25 x 10-6 / 200 x 6.02 x 10-23 10-6 x 10-23 = 10-17 25 / 200 x 6.02 = .7525 .7525 x 10-17 = 7.5 x 10-16 = 75 x 10-15 = 75,000,000,000,000,000 = 75 quadrillion
The only safe amount of mercury is zero, and using mercury as a preservative is reckless, especially since it is given yearly, even to pregnant mothers, even though the package insert admits that the MMR has not been tested for fetal safety in pregnant women. Mercury passes through the placenta and into the fetus. There are flu vaccines which are mercury free. The HepB, Strep Pneumo, Hib, Gardasil, TDaP, and Meningococcal vaccines contain aluminum, which acts as an adjuvant to provoke an immune reaction, and which may be more harmful than mercury. The flu vaccine is big business, particularly the ones containing mercury. Some 300 million doses are sold, while only 20 million doses of all other vaccines are sold. In 1986 the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program made vaccine manufacturers immune from most liability, and in 2011 the Supreme Court twisted the plain language of the Vaccine Act to make vaccine manufacturers, hospitals, and physicians completely immune from absolutely ALL liability, reasoning that vaccines in general – using the language of the Court – are “unavoidably unsafe”. The FDA does not do its own testing. The FDA approves vaccines and other drugs based on studies done by the pharmaceutical companies, which can withhold studies which question safety or effectiveness. Medical schools receive large donations from pharmaceutical companies. Through the so-called revolving door, the FDA, CDC, and EPA have to a large extent been taken over by the industries they regulate. Just because the CDC tells us a vaccine is safe and effective does not mean this is true. Dr. Geier points out that all flu vaccines are illegal. All vaccines must pass two double blind tests for safety and effectiveness. Because a new vaccine is developed each year in advance of the flu season, and because each vaccine assumes a prediction of which strains of flue will be present, there is no time to two double blind studies, which would take several years.
