What really happened at Simpsonwood and why it matters today
While talking to RFK Jr. about Jake Tapper, I learned what happened Simpsonwood. It's a fascinating story of corruption 20 years ago. Not much has changed it seems. The CDC is still corrupt.
If you read my story about RFK Jr. and how he became an anti-vaxxer, it mentions the Simpsonwood transcripts.
There is a book, “Evidence of harm” that talks about what happened there in detail. Some people think the author wasn’t sure who was telling the truth. That’s not true. The book author takes an objective viewpoint, leaving it to the reader to determine who was telling the truth. If your brain is working, it’s easy to figure out.
Basically, Simpsonwood was a meeting where the CDC was scrambling to figure out how to cover up the “signal” caused by thimerosal in vaccines.
Read this excellent article on the CHD website summarizing the meeting: The Simpsonwood Meeting: 23 Years Later which describes the meeting as a “how do we cover up the signal.”
Here is the original Verstraeten study which shows the connection with autism. RR=7.6 is huge. It means mercury causes autism.
Here is a transcript of the Simpsonwood meeting which was held to figure out what to do about the paper.
It’s a long read, so this excerpt gives you the highlights in a much shorter amount of time. The key thing was the study by Verstraeten. Version #3 was presented at that meeting.
This web page describes each version of the Verstraeten study. Search for “A “SIGNAL” DISAPPEARS ACROSS FIVE GENERATIONS OF STUDY.” In that section they’ll talk about a signal that “won’t go away.” They basically massaged the numbers to make the association “go away” so they wouldn’t have to admit making a mistake which would be a PR disaster.
In short, the CDC was more interested in covering their ass (making the signal go away) than protecting kids.
That was all 20 years ago. Why is this relevant today?
Because it shows the agency was corrupt 20 years ago and they haven’t changed. Today, they can ignore all the deaths in VAERS saying “there is no causality.” Bullshit. This is why they don’t debate any of us.
In 2002, the doctors knew that the mercury in thimerosal disappeared from the blood quickly. But it wasn’t until later (in a study by Burbacher in April 2005) that it was discovered where all the mercury went to: your brain. Paul Offit and RFK Jr. knew this.
Yet, fifteen years later the CDC is still lying to the public about the same issue.
Here’s the lie on the CDC website today:
Sure, it’s true that Thimerosal doesn’t stay in your blood a long time; but it’s not true that it doesn’t stay in your body a long time. In fact, it stays in your brain for the rest of your life (unless you use some special methods to remove it over time using chelation). They are not admitting established facts even today. They are still hiding that it stays in your body forever.
Was the 2005 Burbacher study wrong about the mercury going into your brain? Nope. It’s been confirmed 21 times. Here’s the most recent review showing that the mercury in thimerosal goes into your brain, confirming what we knew 15 years ago: 22 studies showing ethyl- and methylmercury cross the blood-brain barrier using the same LAT system:
In total, these studies indicate that ethylmercury-containing compounds and Thimerosal readily cross the BBB, convert, for the most part, to highly toxic inorganic mercury-containing compounds, which significantly and persistently bind to tissues in the brain, even in the absence of concurrent detectable blood mercury levels.
So the CDC is clearly lying to the public 15 years later about what happened back then, even after the science is completely settled.
And of course, Wikipedia doesn’t acknowledge this either (see the Disproven autism hypothesis).
So the lesson here is this:
They covered up the dangers of thimerosal back in 2000… the five generations of the Verstraeten study shows that.
But more importantly, and more clearly, they are still covering up the dangers of thimerosal today, claiming it leaves your body when they know it doesn’t. It is obvious to anyone doing a literature search.
So, do you think they are levelling us now about the safety of the COVID vaccines?
Answer: Of course not.
Lots of great comments on this post including this one:
I have a friend who is a fertility specialist in Orange County, California. I used to gently question and nudge him about vaccines and if it was really necessary, etc. He had his last child right before the scamdemic, and he and his wife decided not to vaccinate this one and see how he developed... turns out, so far, that he is the brightest and happiest of the 4. Now he rues vaccinating his other children and also tells the story to his patients to let them decide if they want to vaccinate their kids or not.
I lost a baby brother many years ago to SIDS (I was maybe 11 at the time). I've resigned myself to not even bother asking my mom about that brother's vaccine schedule - that's how sure I am of it being the vaccine's fault. SIDS is not a natural phenomena; big pharma just made it seem to be.
Bottom line: Andrew Wakefield was right. Stay away from the vaccines.
