U.S. Department of State Urged to Support Ban of Mercury in Vaccines
Date:8/18/2011

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CoMeD – On Thursday, August 18, 2011, scientists and advocates from the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD) met with officials from the United States (U.S.) Department of State and other government agencies.  This meeting discussed the inclusion of pharmaceuticals in the upcoming treaty negotiations in Nairobi, Kenya about a global treaty on mercury being developed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).  CoMeD had previously expressed its gratitude to see pharmaceuticals listed in "Annex C (Mercury-added product not allowed)" of the latest draft of the proposed treaty.

CoMeD, and the international coalition it leads, provided a compendium of the latest evidence for the serious danger represented by the on-going use of mercury in medicine, especially Thimerosal (49.6% mercury by weight) in vaccines as well as the continuing use of mercury-silver-amalgam fillings in dentistry.  Thimerosal, still used as a vaccine preservative and in-process sterilizing agent, is an unnecessary component in several vaccines, including influenza, and a sometimes-undisclosed component in other drugs.  Its use has been repeatedly associated with neurodevelopmental disorders, cancer, birth defects
