Mercury in Foods and Vaccines
though mercury is known to degenerate brain neurons and disrupt the central
nervous system, it is still found in processed foods and mandatory vaccines.
In this second part of the series examining the intentional dumbing-down
of society, this article will discuss the presence of mercury in common
foods and vaccines.
first article in this series – Dumbing Down Society Pt 1: Foods, Beverages
and Meds – looked at the effects of aspartame, fluoride and prescription
pills on the human brain. These substances all cause a decrease of cognitive
power which, on a large scale, leads to a dumbing down of the population
that is ingesting them. This second article focuses on another toxic product
found in everyday foods and mandatory vaccines: mercury.
is a heavy metal naturally found in the environment. However, it is not
suitable for human consumption, as it is extremely harmful to the human
body, especially the brain. While some people say that anything can be consumed
in moderation, many experts agree that no amount of mercury is safe for
the human body. Despite this and the many studies concerning the negative
effects of mercury, the heavy metal is continually added to mandatory vaccines
and processed foods.
is known to cause brain neuron degeneration and to disturb the central nervous
system. Direct exposure to the metal causes immediate and violent effects:
to high levels of metallic, inorganic, or organic mercury can permanently
damage the brain, kidneys, and developing fetus. Effects on brain functioning
may result in irritability, shyness, tremors, changes in vision or hearing,
and memory problems.”
people do not come in direct contact with mercury, but are exposed to small
doses at a time, resulting in a slow but steady poisoning of the brain.
As the years go by, the effects of the substance impairs judgment and rational
thinking, decreases memory and disrupts emotional stability. In other words:
It makes you dumber.
has also the unfortunate ability to transfer from pregnant woman to their
unborn babies. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, mercury
passed on to the fetus during pregnancy may have lasting consequences, including
memory impairment, diminished language skills and other cognitive complications.
been highly publicized that mercury is found in dangerous quantities in
seafood, such as tuna, swordfish and tilefish. This creates a rather ironic
situation: Instead of making you smarter because of all the Omega-3 they
contain, the fish produce exactly the opposite effect on the brain due to

is found in great quantities in mandatory vaccines. Before we get into the
details of it, here are some facts about vaccines in America as noted by
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny:
U.S. government is the largest purchaser of vaccines in the country. In
fact, nearly 30 percent of the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC)
annual budget is composed of purchasing vaccines and ensuring vaccination
is completed for every child in the country.
insurance companies, which do the best liability studies, have completely
abandoned coverage for damage to life and property due to: Acts of God,
nuclear war, nuclear power plant accidents and … vaccination.
have been passed to protect vaccine manufactures from liability, while at
the same time, state laws require parents to inject their children with
up to 100 vaccination antigens prior to entering school. If a vaccine injury–or
death–occurs after a vaccine, parents cannot sue the doctor, the drug
company or the government; they are required to petition the Vaccine Court
for damages, a process that can take years and often ends with a dismissal
of the case.
state has school vaccination laws that require children of appropriate age
to be vaccinated for several communicable diseases. State vaccination laws
mandate that children be vaccinated prior to being allowed to attend public
or private schools. Failure to vaccinate children can not only result in
children being prohibited from attending school, but their parents or guardians
can receive civil fines and criminal penalties. Schools don’t usually
tell parents is that in every state, an exemption exists allowing parents
to legally refuse vaccines while still allowing their children to attend
medical industry advocates vaccines, often demanding that parents vaccinate
their children in order to remain under their doctor’s care. A sizable
portion of a pediatrician’s income is derived from insurance reimbursement
for vaccinations. The ever-expanding vaccination schedule that includes
increasingly more expensive vaccines has been a source of increased revenues
for vaccinating doctors.
receives approximately 21 vaccines before the age of six and 6 more before
the age of 18, for a total of 27 shots during childhood. Many of these injections
contain Thimerosal, a preservative added to the shots, made of 49% mercury.
The unprecedented use of mercury on children has created a generation of
cognitively impaired children.
symptoms experienced by children exposed to mercury are real and can be
directly linked to the vaccines they were given as infants. It’s ironic
that the vaccines given to these young people are meant to protect them,
when in fact they are adversely affecting their neurological development.”
of causing an entire generation of babies to have their brains damaged,
the use of Thimerosal in vaccines has been linked by many scientists to
the staggering rise of autism in the past two decades. Did the dumbing-down
campaign go too far?
children who are fully vaccinated, by the sixth month of life they have
received more mercury from vaccines than recommended by the EPA. There are
many similarities in symptoms between mercury toxicity and autism, including
social deficits, language deficits, repetitive behaviors, sensory abnormalities,
cognition deficits, movement disorders, and behavioral problems. There are
also similarities in physical symptoms, including biochemical, gastrointestinal,
muscle tone, eurochemistry, neurophysiology, EEG measurements, and immune
to the suspected link between vaccines and autism, more than 5,000 U.S.
families have filed claims in a federal vaccine court against the companies
producing the vaccines. In most cases, the plaintiffs received no compensation
and all correlation between the illness and vaccines was denied by the defendants.
A public relations war has been going on for years, as studies and counter-studies
have appeared, proving or denying the links between vaccines and autism,
depending where they originate from. The studies claiming that vaccines
are safe have often been funded by the very companies that produce them.
the denials, Thimerosal is slowly–and silently–being phased
out of vaccines for babies. Not too long after the phasing out began, cases
of autism have sharply dropped in the country.
in the March 10 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons,
the data show since mercury was removed from childhood vaccines, the reported
rates of autism and other neurological disorders in children not only stopped
increasing but actually dropped sharply – by as much as 35 percent.
Using the government’s own databases, independent researchers analyzed
reports of childhood neurological disorders, including autism, before and
after removal of mercury-based preservatives.
to a statement from the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons,
or AAPS, the numbers from California show that reported autism rates hit
a high of 800 in May 2003. If that trend had continued, the reports would
have risen to more than 1,000 by the beginning of 2006. But the number actually
went down to 620, a real decrease of 22 percent, and a decrease from the
projection of 35 percent.
phasing out of Thimerosal from vaccines intended for children is all well
and good, but the preservative is still found in many vaccines intended
for adults. Did someone realize that mercury in vaccines is too strong for
children, making them sick and ultimately unproductive, but perfect to dumb-down
fully developed adults? The ruling class is not looking to create a generation
of autistic people who would need constant care, but a mass of “useful
idiots” that can accomplish repetitive and mind-numbing tasks, while
accepting without questioning what they are being told.
today, Thimerosal is still found in Influenza vaccines, commonly known as
the flu shot. Those shots are seasonal, meaning that patients are encouraged
to come back every winter to get their yearly vaccine/dose of mercury.
of the Influenza vaccine say it boasts a “solid health record,”
meaning the shot does not seem cause observable illnesses. What is NEVER
discussed, however, is the slow and gradual brain neuron degeneration most
individuals go through, year after year, due constant mercury poisoning.
This process of slowing down brain functions is not easily observable nor
quantifiable but it is still happening on a world-wide scale. If mercury
can completely disrupt the fragile minds of children enough to possibly
cause autism, it will, at the very least, impair fully developed minds.
as if created to generate demands for vaccines, new diseases appear periodically
around the world that, with the help of mass media scare campaigns, cause
people to beg their officials for the miracle shot that they are told will
also known as the Swine Flu, was the latest of those scary diseases that
terrified millions of people for several months. When the shot became available,
heavily promoted and massive vaccination campaigns sprung around the world.
One fact that was not promoted: Swine flu was often easily curable, and
not very different than the “regular” flu. Another fact that
was not promoted: Most of the flu shots contained Thimerosal.
than simply dumbing down the population, vaccines might be aiding in depopulation
efforts. In a speech in April 2010, Bill Gates mentioned the use of vaccines
in the effort to reduce world population.
made his remarks to the invitation-only Long Beach, California TED2010 Conference,
in a speech titled, “Innovating to Zero!.” Along with the scientifically
absurd proposition of reducing manmade CO2 emissions worldwide to zero by
2050, approximately four and a half minutes into the talk, Gates declares,
“First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people.
That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job
on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that
by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.
plain English, one of the most powerful men in the world states clearly
that he expects vaccines to be used to reduce population growth. When Bill
Gates speaks about vaccines, he speaks with authority. In January 2010 at
the elite Davos World Economic Forum, Gates announced his foundation would
give $10 billion (circa ¤7.5 billion) over the next decade to develop
and deliver new vaccines to children in the developing world.”
High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
is a “substance that causes injury, illness, or death, especially
by chemical means.” Going by this definition, high-fructose corn syrup
(HFCS) is truly a poison. HFCS is a highly processed sweetner made from
corn that has been used since 1970. It continues to replace white sugar
and sucrose in processed foods and is currently found in the majority of
processed foods found in supermarkets. Studies have determined that Americans
consume an average of 12 teaspoons a day of the sweetner. Here’s a
graph depicting the rise of HFCS in our diets:
to its sweetening propreties, HFCS is obviously found in sugary products
like jams, soft drinks and pre-packaged baked goods. However, many people
do not realize that it is also found in numerous other products, including
soups, breads, pasta sauces, cereals, frozen entrees, meat products, salad
dressings and condiments. HFCS is also found in so-called health products,
including protein-bars, “low-fat” foods and energy drinks.
can something that taste so good be so bad? Here are some facts about HFCS:
links HFCS to increasing rates of obesity and diabetes in North America,
especially among children. Fructose converts to fat more than any other
sugar. And being a liquid, it passes much more quickly into the blood stream.
containing HFCS have higher levels of reactive compounds (carbonyls), which
are linked with cell and tissue damage leading to diabetes.
is some evidence that corn fructose is processed differently in the body
than cane sugar, leading to reduced feelings of satiation and a greater
potential for over-consumption.
by researchers at UC Davis and the University of Michigan have shown that
consuming fructose, which is more readily converted to fat by the liver,
increases the levels of fat in the bloodstream in the form of triglycerides.
other types of carbohydrate made up of glucose, fructose does not stimulate
the pancreas to produce insulin. Peter Havel, a nutrition researcher at
UC Davis who studies the metabolic effects of fructose, has also shown that
fructose fails to increase the production of leptin, a hormone produced
by the body’s fat cells. Both insulin and leptin act as signals to
the brain to turn down the appetite and control body weight. Havel’s
research also shows that fructose does not appear to suppress the production
of ghrelin, a hormone that increases hunger and appetite.
the body processes the fructose in HFCS differently than it does cane or
beet sugar, it alters the way metabolic-regulating hormones function. It
also forces the liver to kick more fat out into the bloodstream. The end
result is that our bodies are essentially tricked into wanting to eat more,
while at the same time, storing more fat.
study in The Journal of the National Cancer Institute suggested that women
whose diet was high in total carbohydrate and fructose intake had an increased
risk of colorectal cancer.

white blood cells. The body is then unable to defend against harmful foreign
suggests that fructose actually promotes disease more readily than glucose.
Glucose is metabolized in every cell in the body, but all fructose must
be metabolized in the liver. The livers of test animals fed large amounts
of fructose develop fatty deposits and cirrhosis, similar to problems that
develop in the livers of alcoholics.
is highly refined–even more so than white sugar.
corn from which HFCS is derived is almost always genetically modified, as
are the enzymes used in the refining process.
are increasing concerns about the politics surrounding the economics of
corn production (subsidies, tariffs, and regulations), as well as the effects
of intensive corn agriculture on the environment.
studies have observed a strong correlation between the rise HFCS in the
past years and the rise of obesity during the same period of time.
on top of being unhealthy for the body, directly affects brain functions.
Some researchers have even questionned the role of obesity in brain degeneration.
scientists have long suspected that a relationship existed between obesity
and a decline in brain power. New studies now confirm the contention that
being overweight is detrimental to the brain. Researchers at the University
of California in an article published in the Archives of Neurology demonstrated
a strong correlation between central obesity (that is, being fat around
the middle) and shrinkage of a part of the brain ( the hippocampus) fundamental
for memory (as measured on MRI scans).
does not mean that obese people are dumb. It does however mean that their
brain is probably not processing as effectively as it could be.
even if HFCS does not make you fat, it will still affect your brain. Recent
studies have shown that the sweetener contains … you’ve guessed
it … mercury!
study – published in the journal, Environmental Health – shows
mercury in nine out of 20 samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup.
second study – by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP)
– finds nearly one in three of 55 brand-name foods contained mercury,
especially dairy products, dressings and condiments. The brands included
big names like Quaker, Hershey’s, Kraft and Smucker’s.”
is the table found in the IATP’s study called Not So Sweet: Missing
Mercury and High Fructose Corn Syrup detailing the amount of mercury found
in everyday products found in supermarkets.
companies who produce HFCS deny the results of those studies, claiming the
sweetner is “natural”. But this is coming from those who, y’know,
SELL the stuff. Corn refiners have even produced some strange PR ads to
encourage people to keep ingesting their toxic product.
the existence of many studies describing the negative effects of mercury
on the human brain, governments still push for the increased vaccination
of the population with shots containing Thimerosal. Furthermore, governing
bodies have protected the pharmaceutical companies who produce the vaccines
and foods containing HFCS against any type of lawsuits. The fact that many
high executives of these companies also hold key positions within the government,
might provide an explanation. There are indeed a restricted amount of persons
holding positions of high power in both the private and public sector. These
people, in what are clear cases of conflict of interest, collide at the
top to form what this site refers to as “the elite” or “the
ruling class.” Most of these people have never been elected to governmental
positions, yet they create public policies that further their agenda, regardless
of the political party in power. Look at the membership of the Bilderberg
Group, the Committee of 300 or the Council of Foreign Relations and you
will find the CEOs of companies producing your food and medication …
and the same people who pass laws governing your food and medication.
no public official is likely to betray his peers and fund-raisers to become
a whistleblower, it is up to each one of us to learn about what we consume.
The cliché saying “read the labels” is quite true, but
if you have no idea what “monosodium glutamate” means, reading
the label will not help you. This series of articles aims to raise basic
awareness of the most harmful substances found in everyday products. I personally
cannot claim to have a perfect diet … I grew up in the 80s and love
the taste of processed foods like candy, sodas … even Hamburger Helper.
But as you find more information and as you begin to realize that every
step in the right direction really does make you feel better, each subsequent
