One of the biggest tragedies must be in knowing that you were the cause of your own child’s injury. Dr Elizabeth Peabody was trained as a Pediatrician at Johns Hopkins Medical School and she must have been a very bright lady because she won a fellowship to Harvard where she pioneered the ‘well-baby visit’. She became an avid and outspoken promoter of all the vaccines available, one of which was the newly developed diphtheria toxoid, the first to contain the ethyl mercury preservative, thimerosal. She is quoted as stating that a child could never receive too many small pox vaccines and that the first should be given between 3 and 12 months. She also strongly urged parents to give their children booster shots since the immunization does wear off.
Her son was born in November 1937 and we can assume he had all the vaccines available, and the boosters. He was among the earliest documented cases of autism.
Before the 1930s autism, as we currently know it, was virtually unknown. This is well confirmed in the Johns Hopkins psychiatrist, Leo Kanner’s landmark 1943 report which described the first cases of autism in the USA, and noted that these cases were unique from anything previous reported.

If you do nothing else today, watch this 9 minute video with a historical perspective on the very first cases of autism.
The message is not that vaccines are the only cause of autism.
The message is that there is a very real threat from mercury – especially in the form of ethyl mercury which was banned from its previous use in the seed and lumber industries in the 1970s. Thimerosal (the ethyl mercury preservative used in vaccines) has MOSTLY been removed from vaccines manufactured today (2014), but some of the flu shots still have SIGNIFICANT amounts and other vaccines in the US still have trace amounts, while the vaccines in other countries could have larger amounts.
DO WE KNOW WHAT IS IN OUR VACCINES?
The message is that exposure to toxins plays an ENORMOUS role in autism. We need to look at every single source of exposure to toxic ingredients in children today if we want to stop this epidemic.
We need to stop protecting our ‘sacred cows’ and put all the facts together and come up with some REAL conclusions FOR THE SAKE OF OUR FUTURE!
Very few parents intentionally inflict harm on their children. Dr. Peabody thought she was campaigning for the health and welfare of children. Did she know the tragedy she brought upon her own son? Did she have any idea that her enthusiasm in promoting vaccines could have caused more harm than good?
I’m sure Dr Peabody cared for children and was sincere. You can be sincere and still be sincerely wrong.
Not knowing facts doesn’t make it right. We have plenty of information today that Dr Peabody did not. There is no excuse today for the continued harm of children. Please help warn the innocent and vulnerable about the danger of mercury exposure through vaccines.
The vaccine industry is large and cumbersome and has trouble responding quickly to make things safer. We can help parents by warning them directly and sharing information with any doctors we know.
No doctor wants to be sincere, yet sincerely wrong.
