(Natural News) Two recent events have forced a glaring spotlight on the $30 billion a year vaccine industry: First, President Donald Trump announced a plan to establish a commission chaired by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (RFK) to investigate vaccine safety and scientific integrity. The second, again featuring RFK, is when he and actor Robert De Niro announced a $100,000 reward to any scientist (or anyone else) who could conclusively prove the safety of mercury (in the form thimerosal) in vaccines.
Both events have unleashed a veritable storm of fury from the mainstream media, many of whom label both De Niro and RFK “vaccine skeptics” or “anti-vaccine,” despite the men’s repeated objections and insistence that they are pro-vaccine and dutifully had all their children vaccinated. Their very specific concern is the volume of vaccines being added to the CDC’s childhood immunization schedule, and the presence of mercury in many of those vaccines.

The CDC determines the immunization schedule, and failure to comply with it means children can be refused admittance to public schools. And that schedule certainly merits closer scrutiny. The agency has doubled the number of required vaccines since the mid-1980s, with nearly 40 doses now required before the age of two years. Coincidentally – or so the CDC would have you believe – autism numbers have increased 10-fold since the 1980s, and asthma has more than doubled in the same period. (Click to Article)
