I asked a close associate about this Thimerosal issue in vaccines and the JFKjr appointment to study the issue. Here’s what he said (btw PhD in bio-chemistry, famous researcher in Cambridge etc, lots of credentials)…
Timerosol is a known problem. They were supposed to get rid of this as a preservative. The other problem is
the peanut oil they use as an adjuvant . That was used historically as few had allergies to it. But, with the introduction into vaccines you have seen that many have reactions and serious ones to peanuts.
The other problem is that they don’t map the epitopes that the vaccines bind. They are just starting now.
I developed the method for that mapping. The epitopes are the sequences they bind. There are 20 amino acids.
They bind 5-7 in length of these in some order, for example A.B.C.D.E…if that order appears somewhere else
then you will have a side reaction. It can all be analyzed as the total sequence of all known proteins are known.
But, it hasn’t been done. I have actually set up a matrix to analyze all those interactions. But, it will take a couple
of years before any science penetrates pharma. Most of them are swiss or german and give the US the tail end of the
distribution. We had problems with the rabies vaccine. It caused optic neuritis in Mimi (she died of it )…I attach the article where a Dutch marine got optic neuritis from the rabies vaccine. It cross reacts with a epitope on the nerves as the vaccine was made with virus infecting spinal chords or in neuronal tissue culture, not against the pure virus.
I had a student that got optic neuritis from the MMR ie the mumps, measles, rubella vaccine. They give cortisone tor reverse it partially.
I give the article to vets around here. They now just do an antibody titre instead of every year, now just every 3 years.
Your husband saved the world from WWIII. Close call.
