Mercury Present in Many FDA-Regulated Drugs

Interesting how the FDA is resisting existing laws and regulations to verify the hugely debatable safety of mercury in all sorts of medications, particularly in the wake of this week's obscene push for vaccines, a short time after a lawsuit was refiled by the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD).

CoMeD's original lawsuit was filed in August after the federal agency denied to respond to a previous consumer petition. In fact, Jeffrey Shuren, the FDA's acting commissioner for policy, called the petition's main assertion that the agency had no substantive evidence which would verify the safety of mercury to be "stunning."

Frankly, it ought to be stunning, considering mercury is found in at least 45 prescription or over-the-counter drugs, including ointments, vaccines and nasal sprays. Even more revealing were two e-mails from a FDA official who criticized the agency's stance on failing for decades to conduct a systematic review of mercury in all products, old and new.

That's just the tip of the iceberg -- if you needed any more evidence -- proving you can't trust the FDA or anybody else connected with conventional medicine to protect your health, meaning you must take more responsibility to protect it.
