I was looking for some info on Adam Schiff. A couple of things to note, “California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, for instance, offered an amendment to ban any funding to establish or direct a commission to investigate the theory that vaccines cause or contribute to the development of autism.
So, he is opposed to investigating the theory that vaccines can and do cause autism. Link here, https://www.the74million.org/article/as-house-takes-up-education-funding-bill-lawmakers-offer-bevy-of-amendments-from-autism-to-desegregation/
I also saw where Schiff got money from The Bohemian Foundation. I just had to look that group up, “Bohemian Foundation was established in 2001 by Pat Stryker, a philanthropist recognized for her vision and inspiration.
Pat is the granddaughter of Homer Stryker, an orthopedic surgeon who invented and patented medical devices and subsequently founded the global company now known as Stryker Corporation. Pat inherited a concern for others from her grandfather, from her maternal grandparents who were educational missionaries in China, and from her mother, who committed herself to service.”
BIG BUCKS connected with Stryker, from Wikipedia, “In a 2012 global market overview of top medical technology firms, Stryker was ranked number 10 with total portfolio sales in excess of $8.6 billion. Moreover, the firm maintains 35% worldwide reconstructive market share; 50% worldwide MedSurg market share; 15% worldwide Neurotechnology and Spine market share.”
He is also funded by https://www.centene.com/ Centene Corporation is a large publicly-traded company and a leading multi-line healthcare enterprise that serves as a major intermediary for both government-sponsored and privately insured health care programs. The main lines of Centene include Medicare, Medicaid, The Health Insurance Marketplace System, (via the ACA), Tricare, as well as traditional commercial insurance. It is the second-largest publicly-traded corporation based in the state of Missouri.”
Shiffty introduced this bill, Shown Here:
“Introduced in House (05/16/2017)
Commends the international community, health organizations, the private sector, school and community leaders, and faith-based organizations for bolstering health through vaccination.
Recognizes that the lack of vaccination can cause a public health crisis and that there is no credible evidence that vaccines cause life-threatening or disabling diseases in healthy children or adults.
Encourages a continued commitment to research to improve vaccines and develop new vaccines.
Urges parents to follow the scientific evidence and consensus of medical experts in favor of timely vaccinations to protect their children and their community.”
The text of the bill includes blatant lies and also alludes to their real objective, “Whereas a strong investment in medical research to improve existing vaccines and develop many more life-saving vaccines is beneficial to all, both at home and abroad.”
This is a blatant lie, “that there is no credible evidence that vaccines cause life-threatening or disabling diseases in healthy children or adults.”
Then why has the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) paid out over 3.8 billion?https://www.hrsa.gov/vaccine-compensation/data/index.html
“Total compensation paid over the life of the program is approximately $3.8 billion.”
They paid out $252,245,932.78 in 2017.
"Thiomersal controversy" Wikipedia has it. They have been using a derivative of mercury in vaccines to for a longer shelf life. We're talking about vaccines for babies. After it was banned for children's use autism in children has been cut in half.
yes. "studies" have shown that Thiomersal (organomercury compound) that it has no ill effect on children. The study is correct that Thiomersal in the compound form can not hurt the child. It's not hard to figure out why mercury compound's get broken down in the body. Thiomersal is reactive with Acid, oxidizing agents and Alkali. Examples of oxidizing agent would be iodine found in cranberry juice. or Alkali such as magnesium, calcium, strontium and barium brakes the bond.
No study on Thiomersal has been made into what food react with the compound. Again the compound itself is not harmful.
Reactivity Profile MERCURY((O-CARBOXYPHENYL)THIO)ETHYL, SODIUM SALT is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and strong bases. The oxidation of this compound is greatly accelerated by traces of copper ions. Incompatible with acids, iodine, heavy metal salts and many alkaloids. Can be absorbed by rubber caps. (NTP, 1992). Stable in air, but not sunlight. May discolor on exposure to light. Dilute aqueous solutions are fairly stable to heat but sensitive to light. Solutions are less stable to heat when acidic than when alkaline. Solutions are most stable to light at pH 5 to 7. Solutions are unstable to heat but not to light in the presence of copper, iron or zinc ions but not in the presence of calcium or magnesium ions
The empirical evidence of autism being cut it half statistically contradicts those reports in the real world environment
