RE:  A federal employee’s family is decimated by mercury in vaccines

Dear Special Council Bloch,

My name is L Pa.  I am a former civil servant.  My husband is currently, and has been a federal employee since 1988.  I am writing to you with a very personal struggle, yet one which is not entirely unique to my family.  Similar experiences are shared by more than 1 in every 200 American families.  Most importantly, the hardships I will enumerate could likely have been avoided for my family and many others, save for the apparent collusion of the CDC and the pharmaceutical industry.  Ethyl mercury has stolen our daughter’s and many other children’s typical futures.

 

Every new parent wants to ensure their child has the best possible start in life.  Beyond a safe home, appropriate nutrition, immeasurable love, there is the American system of medical care.  We are fortunate to have insurance through Blue Cross & Blue Shield (FEHB).  The FEHB “Well Child” program ensures that each child receives regular check-ups with a PPO pediatrician.  Infants see their pediatrician at birth, 1 week, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, and 24 months.  Not coincidentally, each of these visits fits the timeframe recommended by the CDC for administration of a series of immunizations. 

 

After eight years of trying to have a child.  Our daughter arrived in 1999 – her birthmother an angel sent from above.  We made sure our daughter attended every single “well child” visit and were told that the immunizations were “safe” and “effective” and “required by law.” 

 

In the week following our daughter’s 4 month check-up and immunizations, our daughter’s behavior seemed to deteriorate; she screamed like she was in pain for up to three hours at a time, wanted to be walked constantly, would not nap, and wanted little to eat.  On the seventh day, post-immunization, she screamed in high-pitched wails, non-stop, for over three hours.  I took her to the hospital emergency room, that day.  I told the triage nurse about my daughter’s behavior and that the paperwork from her immunizations stated such an event indicated the need for immediate care.  Hours later, our daughter was listless in my arms.  A harried ER doctor stopped by and decided that our daughter had an ear infection.  Told to give our daughter Tylenol and Amoxicillan, I was dismissed.  The next day, the pediatrician saw no sign of an ear infection.  Our daughter’s behavior continued to deteriorate.  Additionally, she developed persistent, raw, bleeding diaper rashes and non-stop diarrhea.  She began to gaze off into space and seemed to sometimes simply “go away.”  Soon, she began making high-pitched squealing noises.  At her 6 month check-up, the pediatrician did not conclude the visit with his usual, “she’s perfect.”  She did continue to receive her immunizations right on schedule, though.

 

By the time our daughter was one year old, it was evident that there was something wrong.  She would fall, then lay on the ground screaming in apparent anger, violently rejecting any effort by a caretaker to help her up or soothe her.  She would run her head into our hipbones with force enough to knock us off-balance.  She could not seem to fall asleep at night; throwing her body into us, the wall, the bed, the floor, kicking, shrieking, clawing and pulling our hair, she would finally pass out after as many as three hours, with us holding her down.  She would wake up two hours later screaming with apparent night terrors; it would take another hour to get her back to sleep, then the cycle would repeat up to three more times each night.  She would not play near other children.  She did not respond to her name.  She drooled so much her shirts were wringing wet.  She would have uncontrollable tantrums.  She loved to watch her hands.  Her staring spells increased in frequency.  Her language was limited to five “signs” and “word-shapes” that all sounded more or less like “mo.”  She would not feed herself food, and had to be virtually force-fed adequate amounts of nutrition; in tiny bites over numerous hours.  Her stool was virtually putrified food, and the diarrhea continued to occur upward of six times a day.  Her bottom continued to look like raw hamburger.  Her upper body was weak and gross motor movement seemed out-of-synch.  She could not stack blocks, put shapes into a shape sorter, or play pat-a-cake.  Our daughter could not understand that a hot stove, busy street, or strange dog were dangerous.  By the time she reached 18 months, she entered the Early Intervention Program and we were told that she “may be autistic.”  I was now 6 months pregnant with our second child.

 

By her second birthday, our daughter was diagnosed as autistic.  I began pursuing answers in earnest.  In researching our daughter’s medical history, I reaLed the event that sent her to the hospital at four months might have been the start of all our trouble.  I filed a claim with VAERS, and took some time to “research” the vaccine lots that our daughter had received at 4 months.  At least three of her “lots” were reported as “hot lots.”  Cumulatively, she was the lucky recipient of nearly 40 times the EPA’s “safe” limit for exposure to mercury.  Additionally, I learned that the CDC was aware, as early as 2000, that the cumulative effect of exposure to heavy metals, like mercury, leads to an increase in a broad array of neurological disorders, including autism, AD/HD, stuttering, tics, and speech and language delays.  Further, effort was made to withhold this information from the public until a “sanitized” and manipulated model of that data was released in 2003.

 

Too late for our daughter, and contrary to what I was told by our pediatrician, I learned the scary truth.  The vaccines we are giving to our infants and children pose a widespread danger to their health and welfare.  Particularly the vaccines containing the heavy metals mercury and aluminum (preservative and enhancer).  The inherent toxicity of heavy metals has long been established beyond a doubt; injecting these neurotoxic products into infants who have no blood-brain barrier is clearly not “safe.”  With the help of our president and congress-people, the pharmaceutical companies are making progress toward complete immunity for the damage being done by their untested and harmful products (Homeland Security Act and Frist legislation).  Knowingly, the pharmaceutical industry continues to manufacture vaccines with heavy metals (mysterious virus’, formaldehyde, and other fine ingredients, too); after all, $4.00 a vial is a significant profit that would be lost if safer vaccines were required.

 

Through renowned specialists in the field of autism, I learned both about the disability, and of the many solutions available to help autistic individuals recover to the point where they could lead nearly typical, productive lives.  Relentlessly, I pursued therapies, services, and care for our daughter.  Over the next year, with the help of a pediatrician who speciaLes in autistic children, I built a regimen for our daughter’s recovery. 

 

Our daughter was subjected to numerous blood, urine, and stool tests.  Through these tests we learned that she was mercury toxic, was producing antibodies to her own myelin, was suffering from cerebellar ataxia, had global developmental delay, was amino acid deficient, suffered from allergic gastroenteritis and colitis, might have a seizure disorder, was hypotonic, and was systemically overgrown with a number of dangerous bacteria and yeast.  Interestingly, many of our daughter’s issues seem to fit under the title of “heavy metal poisoning” (ethyl mercury is a heavy metal), as well as the autism umbrella.

 

Our daughter’s numerous issues indicated a multi-pronged approach to recovery:

 

  • A specific, organic diet free of gluten, casein, soy, preservatives, artificial flavors and colors, and inclusive of purified water;
  • Incorporation of intensive speech, occupational, physical, and behavioral therapies;
  • Implementation of over thirty nutritional supplements;
  • Inclusion of digestive enzymes with all food intake; and the
  • Application of anti-fungals, anti-virals, and probiotics
  • Massive amounts of time and patience

 

As gigantic as the physical and emotional costs of parenting a profoundly autistic child are, we soon learned that the additional financial burden of recovering a profoundly autistic child was staggering.  Our insurance covers a mere week a year of ABA, a total of 12.5 visits a year for speech therapy, a total of 12.5 visits a year for occupational therapy, maybe 10% of the pediatrician’s fees, virtually none of the specific testing, none of the supplements, enzymes, and probiotics, none of the additional cost of obtaining toxin-free food, and none of the additional cost of obtaining allergy-free foods.  The ABA, alone, costs upward of $3,000.00 each month.  The supplements and prescriptions another $400.00 each month.  The special foods, 5 times the cost of traditional groceries ~$600.00 a month.  Even without adding the cost of the other therapies, the $385.00 an hour to see the special pediatrician, or additional costs when testing is required, we are out of pocket virtually our entire net income, before we even buy our groceries, pay our mortgage, car payment, electrical bill, water bill, etc.

 

Blue Cross & Blue Shield does not cover most of the cost associated with recovering our daughter.  We have filed a VAERS report.  We have filed a VICAP claim.  We have received no relief or assistance, not even a hearing from these bodies.  Children like my daughter (1 of every 166) wait on Florida’s waiting list for funding from “Developmental Disabilities Medicaid Waiver” program – we have been waiting for 2 years (cannot file until the child reaches 3 years of age).  We are approximately number 11,000 in the line of nearly 20,000.  The state is serving 30 new cases each month.  There are no private agencies to provide long-term assistance for services, funding, or therapies. 

 

I got lucky.  I lost my mother to cancer.  And inherited a future for my daughter; through her estate.

 

Three years later, my daughter is making giant strides in her recovery efforts.  She works harder than any five year old should have to.  Through my diligence (eight IEPs last year, alone, attorney’s fees, and countless hours spent researching and writing position papers about autism and the needs of autistic children), my daughter has more educational opportunity than most autistic students in our county; she works 25 hours a week in special and mainstream classes at school; with a full-time one-on-one instructional/behavioral assistant.  Further, she works another 35 hours a week with a behavioral therapist at our home.  She attends speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and therapeutic horseback riding.  Our family works with her to reinforce her new skills and maintain her established skills – even the baby has learned how to teach her sister to use language!  One small step at a time, she is learning how to learn.  After two years, she has learned the steps required to toilet herself (although she still needs some assistance).

 

I spend about 20 hours a week home-cooking all of the meals and snacks for our daughter; there are few products ready-made that have no wheat, oats, barley, rye, spelt, malt, caramel, milk, casein, whey, casseinate, lecithin, or soy.  I spend hours researching and preparing therapy tools.  It is at least an hour each way to the stores that sell organic foods.  Two hours a day are dedicated to just helping our daughter consume breakfast and dinner.  I assist our daughter in playing with toys, using language, playing with her sister, using the bathroom, washing hands, bathing, dressing, and brushing her teeth; I have to vigilantly monitor doors and outdoor play because she will “elope” and could not find her way home, or tell anybody who she is.  In my spare time, I care for our other daughter, and maintain the household.

 

Our family “vacations” require us to bring the kitchen with us, plan our trips around available organic food sources, and purchase, stock, and prepare myriad supplements.  Occasionally, I take a week-end off.  Sometimes my husband gets to.  Overall, there is little to no respite from the heavy responsibility of parenting a child with autism.

 

Our daughter’s future has been decimated, her potential significantly impaired.  The quality of our life as a family reduced to meeting the most basic needs of each individual and struggling together to meet and conquer each day.  The emotional, physical, and financial cost of our daughter’s disability is beyond measure. 

 

Despite evidence from families, like ours, across the nation, privately funded studies, and experiences of experts in the field, the administration of our nation’s vaccine program shakes its head in dismissal and continues to damage our next generation.  The government’s response to the growing body of evidence and non-governmental scientific research on the dangers of mercury in vaccines is wholly inadequate and unacceptable.

 

It seems to me, in regard to the HHS Immunization Program, there is a substantial likelihood that there must be some violation of law, rule or regulation, gross mismanagement, abuse of authority, and a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety.

I apologize for the length of this letter. 

Thank you for taking the time and effort to consider this matter,

L Pa

 

PS – I received a press release, and thought I’d forward it – it goes to the heart of what I have tried to express in this letter:

 

 All Press Releases for September 13, 2004 

  AUTISM - A POLITICAL BOMBSHELL " NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND"? President Bush unwilling to address this National Tragedy. Parents are outraged.

  Autism has hit epidemic levels with no end in sight. The President has failed to address this National Tragedy....WHY ? There are 25 facts that will leave the American people asking questions. New Book Titled, Mercury: The Winged Messenger presents these 25 facts and others...

 

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 13, 2004 -- THE TWENTY FIVE FACTS PRESENTED IN THE BOOK TITLED: MERCURY: THE WINGED MESSENGER.

 

Fact # 1 Mercury is one of the most poisonous substances known to medical science.

 

Fact # 2 Thimerosal, is a chemical that was used as a preservative in children’s vaccines that was intentionally added to the vaccines to increase profits by way of multi dose bottles that were given to millions of our children.

 

Fact # 3 Thimerosal is 49.6% MERCURY, a proven and deadly neuro-toxin that causes permanent brain damage. The Material Safety Data Sheet (M.S.D.S.) confirms toxicity fears.

 

Fact # 4 Hundreds of Thousands of children received as much as 40 times the safe level for mercury exposure as established by the Environmental Protection Agency ( E.P.A.) from the thimerosal that was used in the vaccines.

 

Fact # 5 The pharmaceutical industry stocks exploded in value from 1986 to 1999. This was the direct result of federal mandates requiring vaccines for all school children.

 

Fact # 6 There has been over 700 waivers of the conflict of interest rule by the F.D.A., C.D.C., and the N.I.H regarding paid consultancy from the drug industry. Congressman Dan Burton of Indiana has called this a "VIOLATION OF THE PUBLICS TRUST".

 

Fact # 7 Former President Bush (41) was appointed to the Eli Lilly board of directors and lobbied for additional tax breaks until the Supreme Court itself told him to stop.

 

Fact # 8 Former Vice President Quayle’s family controlled Eli Lilly during that time frame. As a result of Bush's appointment to the Eli Lilly Board of Directors, it is suspected that Dan Quayle was selected as the Vice Presidential Candidate.

 

Fact # 9 Present and former Eli Lilly executives are now employed with the current Bush Administration.

 

Fact # 10 The Current Administration has tried to insert an eleventh hour Eli Lilly Rider provision in the Homeland Security Bill, that illegally protected the drug industry at the expense of thousands of mercury poisoned children.

 

Fact # 11 The current administration tried to “SEAL” CDC documents that proved the danger to children from the thimerosal additive used in the vaccines.

 

Fact # 12 The CDC tried to bury documented reports on thimerosal. They deliberately marked public documents with the phrase “DO NOT COPY OR RELEASE” This violated most consumer protection laws.

 

Fact # 13 The drug industry has paid consultants that tried to disprove the relationship between autism and mercury poisoning from the multi doses of thimerosal that was given to our children.

 

Fact # 14 The symptoms of mercury poisoning and that of autism are IDENTICAL.

 

Fact # 15 The onset of “Autism” has exploded in the last 15 years to epidemic levels.

 

Fact # 16 This onset occurred when the multi dose vaccines containing the thimerosal was given to our children on multiple occasions during the first two years of a childs life.

 

Fact # 17 The U.S. Government and state governments require ALL children to have

21 mandated vaccines before being admitted to schools. Most of these vaccines contained the Thimerosal / Mercury up to the year 2001. The current flu vaccine still contains thimerosal.

 

Fact # 18 The pet vaccine industry took thimerosal out of pet vaccines over ten years

ago because of known risks to animals.

 

Fact # 19 Eli Lilly Company distorted information on the dangers of thimerosal as early as 1930. This has been proven by internal Eli Lilly documents and Congressional investigations by

Congressman Burton's committee on Government Reform.

 

Fact # 20 The U.S. Government has a three year statute of limitation vaccine court of law, that has illegally protected the drug industry by way of violating the U.S. Constitution. This court has and will dismiss law suits because of this illegal three year statute…..This in essence is obstruction of justice and violates the Constitutional rights of these vaccine injured children.

 

Fact # 21 Eli Lilly and other drug giants have contributed large sums of money to the Republican political process.

 

Fact # 22 The drug industry never disclosed that their baby vaccine products contained this dangerous mercury additive. Parents were never warned or notified.

 

Fact # 23 Congressman Burton of Indiana has proposed bringing criminal charges against those who are responsible for this national tragedy.

 

Fact # 24 There have been over 120,000 documented cases of “AUTISM” - Mercury poisoning to our children. Another 250,000 cases are suspected.

 

These children will require care and support for the rest of their lives. The costs to the parents will exceed $ 2 million dollars per injured child. These are crimes against humanity. Children’s lives have been destroyed.

 

Fact # 25 Majority leader Bill Frist has proposed a new law that again illegally protects The pharmaceutical industry by way of violating the Constitutional Rights of over 120,000 vaccine injured children. Title ll of this proposed law is an atrocity. The rights of these children and that of their parents MUST BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS.

 

These 25 facts and others are presented in detail in the Book Titled, MERCURY: THE WINGED MESSENGER...A MUST READ BOOK FOR EVERY PARENT.

 

The American people deserve the TRUTH!
