Monkerys Given The Hepatitius B Vaccine, are Found to Have Brain Damage. Shame on YOU!

September 30, 2009 – A study published today in Neurotoxicology, the leading scientific journal in its field, discovered brain damage in newborn monkeys given the Hepatitis B vaccine containing the mercury preservative thimerosal. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) added this vaccine to the recommended immunization schedule for newborn babies in 1991. The vaccine caused a significant delay in the acquisition of key primate survival reflexes essential for life in the wild. Mercury is especially toxic to the developing brain and immune system.

Chronic neurological disorders, especially autism, have increased rapidly during the past two decades in association with increases in vaccines (from 10 to 36) and total mercury exposure. In July 1999, CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics and vaccine companies agreed to remove mercury from all childhood vaccines “as soon as possible,” but it still remains in 16 licenses vaccines, five of which are still given to infants. Contrary to its own recommendation, now a decade old, CDC is now recommending the H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccines for “high priority” groups of pregnant women and babies older than six months who could get four doses. While some doses will be available in single syringes without mercury for those who ask, most doses contain mercury and CDC has refused to state a preference for the mercury-free versions.

An elite interdisciplinary team of top scientists from across the country collaborated on the study, “Delayed Acquisition of Neonatal Reflexes in Newborn Primates Receiving a Thimerosal-Containing Hepatitis B Vaccine: Influence of Gestational Age and Birth Weight.” The lead author, Dr. Laura Hewitson, oversaw the study, which was funded in part by SafeMinds. The animals were housed at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. This study compared infant macaque monkeys vaccinated with the Hepatitis B vaccine containing the mercury preservative thimerosal with those who received a saline placebo and those who received no shots at all. The vaccine group showed significant delay in the acquisition of key survival reflexes. Neonatal responses in unexposed animals were not delayed.

This paper focuses on one part of a larger comprehensive research program investigating the safety of the entire human infant vaccine schedule by employing standard animal research protocols. The program is examining differences in developmental behaviors, brain, blood, GI tissues, the immune system, health status, pathology, and gene expression profiles between vaccinated and unvaccinated primates. Preliminary results of the wider program were presented at the International Meeting for Autism Research in London in May 2008. The presentation suggested evidence of widespread harm caused by the CDC-recommended vaccine schedule.
