(Natural News) Vaccine safety champion and medical choice advocate Robert F. Kennedy and his World Mercury Project have delivered a promised report to Congress providing details on a six-step program to "introduce sound science and transparency to our vaccination program" for children, according to an announcement by the organization.
The organization said that 15 like-minded advocates joined Kennedy on Capitol Hill "to fulfill our promise to the community" in providing data they said would dramatically improve child vaccine safety.
"Federally elected officials can no longer ignore the chronic health conditions — tied in no small part to adverse vaccine reactions — that currently affect over half our nation's children," the statement said. "Not only are these officials now aware of the conflicts of interest and inadequate science upon which the vaccine program is built, but they have been given a common-sense plan for enacting desperately needed changes that puts children's health first."
For those unfamiliar with the World Mercury Project's work, it's "mission is to raise public awareness of the dangers and sources of mercury, with the ultimate goal of banning all uses of mercury on a global level," according to the group's website. Kennedy is the group's chairman; he was recruited to the organization in the early 2000s because he was already a leading environmentalist and anti-mercury champion. Once he learned about the damage being caused by toxic mercury-based preservative thimerosal, which is used in vaccines, he was more than willing to join the fight.
The group noted in meetings with lawmakers last week that the long-term effects of the nation's childhood vaccine program have not been sufficiently studied, while U.S. regulatory agencies are "conflicted" over the issue of vaccine safety.
"Childhood epidemics have mushroomed along with the childhood vaccine schedule," the group noted, adding that many vaccines are known to be neurotoxic, carcinogenic, and can cause autoimmunity.
The group makes these recommendations:
— All vaccines must be subject to a "scientifically rigorous approval process;"
— There must be a reporting system established to notify federal agencies of adverse vaccine events to include automation of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) databases for the research purposes;
