Why You Need To Know About The Coalition For Mercury-Free Drugs

CoMeD has been on the front lines trying to raise awareness about the presence of mercury in vaccines, as well as urging lawmakers and other appropriate authorities to protect our children.

Though they continually try to deny that the mercury and mercury-based  components added to many medicines and vaccines are toxic to humans, mainstream  medical authorities are having a much more difficult time these days defending  their distorted position against sound science. One of the groups responsible  for bringing this continually emerging science to light and pushing for real  change is the non-profit advocacy group Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs,  also known as CoMeD.
Over the years, we have covered a number of stories  here at NaturalNews that address the dangers of mercury which, contrary  to popular belief, is still added to multi-dose vial influenza shots and various  other vaccines commonly administered to young children. All this time, CoMeD has been  on the front lines trying to raise awareness about the presence of mercury in  vaccines, as well as urging lawmakers and other appropriate authorities to  protect our children by taking action against the continued use of mercury in  modern medicine.
"We recognize that organic mercury-based compounds are a  proven neurotoxic risk to susceptible men, women, and children at levels below 1  part per billion (1 part in 1,000,000,000)," explains CoMeD on its website about  the group's core values. "We seek a world in which no mercury-based ingredient  is knowingly added to any medicine, and the ingredients used in medicines have  the lowest levels of mercury that the best  practical technologies afford."
Back in 1999, the U.S. Centers for  Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recognizing the inherent neurotoxic  effects of mercury exposure, actually made recommendations that the adjuvant  preservative known as Thimerosal, which is about 50 percent mercury, be  completely removed from vaccines. But the agency's public petition fell on deaf  ears, as today the neurotoxin continues to be added to vaccines.
"We  have scientific studies clearly demonstrating that mercury causes neurological  damage, and we have a cost-effective alternative that has already been used to  replace Thimerosal as the preservative in vaccines," explains Dr. Paul G. King,  Ph.D., a science adviser to CoMeD.

CoMeD working to ban mercury globally

CoMeD is also involved with  efforts at the global level to ban mercury from all vaccines and medicines  worldwide, a topic of discussion at the upcoming Intergovernmental  Negotiating Committee to prepare a global legally binding instrument on  mercury (INC5), which will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from January  13-18, 2013. If such efforts are a success, U.N. member nations would be  restricted from further using mercury in medicine and vaccines.
"No  vaccine should be used as a delivery system for an undisclosed poison, for this  is a denial of the right of informed consent and of the medical directive to do  no harm," explained Rev. Lisa K. Sykes, President of CoMeD, to members at INC4  back on June 29, 2012. Rev. Sykes' son Wesley became permanently disabled when  she received a mercury-containing vaccine while still 28 weeks pregnant with him.
