I was a little skeptical that this book would be able to encompass enough of the research to show how toxic thimerosal is. I was wrong. The book shows studies, research, pharmaceutical emails and government correspondence to show the reader why this topic has been so hot. I was impressed with chapter 3 especially, devoted to laying out the facts on why childen are still at risk here, in the states and elsewhere, especially as we enter the flu shot time of year. A big thank you to Mr. Kennedy, Dr. Hyman and Dr. Herbert for their contributions in educating anyone who would like to know about this mercury-containing preservative and its effect on the body and brain. With increasing neuroimmune, neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases, it is so helpful to have all of this research in a concise collection.

Valuable tool for obtaining a fairly comprehensive understanding of one (there are others) very concerning aspect of the vaccination program.

Is excited to see why Bromire is getting messages from the king. Please continue!!!!

At the age of 68 the most startling fact for me is just how many vaccines children are given currently. With still more vaccines now in the approval process, now is the right time to evaluate the cost-benefit of banning Thimerosol.

This book so clearly delineates where we've missed the mark in evaluating vaccine science and regulatory oversight. More importantly, it focuses attention on formulating the proper questions for investigation, and what is prudent to do now.
