Trace Amounts in Burlington, Vermont (via VTDigger.com)
The following is a brief excerpt from the article in the VTDigger (read the full article here):
In spite of assurances from the CDC about the safety of mercury-based preservative Thimerosal®, Trace Amounts documents that the science is not yet settled about potential links between mercury-containing vaccines and neurological damage and autism. The United Nations recognizes that mercury is, “a substance producing significant adverse neurological and other health effects,” but mercury is still contained in certain flu vaccines widely distributed throughout the country, even in Vermont. Just this 2014/2015 flu season, the Vermont Vaccine Purchasing Program stocked 25,000 doses of Fluzone® multi-dose vaccines for children. According to the manufacturer, each 0.5 ml dose contains 25 mcg of mercury. As Trace Amounts details, this “small” amount of mercury can lead to devastating health outcomes.
Burlington-area mothers have organized a screening of Trace Amounts as part of National Autism Awareness Month. The film will be shown at Merrill’s Roxy Theater in downtown Burlington on Tuesday April 21st at 7pm. A Q&A panel will follow at 8:45 with Vermont doctors and parents of autistic children.
