[escepticos] timerosal

Buenas a todos,
   Me suscribí a la lista se puede decir que hace unos días,
respecto a este artículo del timerosal recuerda una "conspiranoia" , 
cuando se hace un estudio de ese tipo se publica en  una revista
médica y ya está. Lo ideal sería verificar el origen del artículo.


¿Qué les parece este asunto?

Salon/Rolling Stone Article re. Thimerasol Robert F. Kennedy Jr

June 16, 2005  |  In June 2000, a group of top government scientists
health officials gathered for a meeting at the isolated Simpsonwood
conference center in Norcross, Ga. Convened by the Centers for
Control and Prevention, the meeting was held at this Methodist
center, nestled in wooded farmland next to the Chattahoochee River,
ensure complete secrecy. The agency had issued no public
announcement of the
session -- only private invitations to 52 attendees. There were high-
officials from the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the top
specialist from the World Health Organization in Geneva, and
of every major vaccine manufacturer, including GlaxoSmithKline,
Merck, Wyeth
and Aventis Pasteur. All of the scientific data under discussion, CDC
officials repeatedly reminded the participants, was
strictly "embargoed."
There would be no making photocopies of documents, no taking papers
them when they left.

The federal officials and industry representatives had assembled to
a disturbing new study that raised alarming questions about the
safety of a
host of common childhood vaccines administered to infants and young
children. According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten,
who had
analyzed the agency's massive database containing the medical
records of
100,000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines --
- -- appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism
and a host
of other neurological disorders among children. "I was actually
stunned by
what I saw," Verstraeten told those assembled at Simpsonwood, citing
staggering number of earlier studies that indicate a link between
and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and
Since 1991, when the CDC and the FDA had recommended that three
vaccines laced with the preservative be given to extremely young
infants --
in one case, within hours of birth -- the estimated number of cases
autism had increased fifteenfold, from one in every 2,500 children
to one in
166 children.

Even for scientists and doctors accustomed to confronting issues of
life and
death, the findings were frightening. "You can play with this all
you want,"
Dr. Bill Weil, a consultant for the American Academy of Pediatrics,
told the
group. The results "are statistically significant." Dr. Richard
Johnston, an
immunologist and pediatrician from the University of Colorado whose
had been born early on the morning of the meeting's first day, was
even more
alarmed. "My gut feeling?" he said. "Forgive this personal comment --
 I do
not want my grandson to get a thimerosal-containing vaccine until we
better what is going on."
