If You Can Make It There, You'll Make It Anywhere...New York's Times Square Goes Big and Green with Vaccine Warnings on CBS JumboTron
You know what they say, if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. Well folks vaccine awareness is making it in a 15 second public service message which is being shown on the CBS JumboTron on Times Square. The green message is being shown through April 28 at the center of where the world meets America. Thanks to the support from Mercola.com, and featuring the National Vaccine Information Center, the message is being shown hourly for 18 hours a day in Times Square on the historic 20 by 26-foot full color big screen.
Every day, more than 1.5 million people and 60,000 cars pass through Times Square. That's not bad exposure for the message to become aware of the potential risks of vaccines eh? I think we are making progress. It's about awareness folks and the word is getting to the masses. Oh and did I mention that The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on their site that they want to study autism as a possible clinical outcome of immunization? This is only a part of the CDC's new 5-year research agenda for vaccine safety. I have been telling you haven't I? The study is just starting on vaccines and autism but remember, it is not just about vaccines as the only triggers.
Remember all of that babbling I have been doing about mitochondrial disease and vaccines? The CDC will also study mitochondrial dysfunction and the potential risk for post-vaccine "neurological deterioration" and convene an expert panel on the feasibility of studying health outcomes (such as autism) among vaccinated and unvaccinated children. I will just bet my dad has some mitochondrial issues.
The CDC also plans to adopt recommendations approved by the National Vaccine Advisory Committee of the US Department of Health and Human Services. This plan comes one month after the federal government's leading autism body, the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC), signaled a shift in research priorities toward environmental triggers for autism. The environmental triggers could include toxins, biological agents and "adverse events following immunization."
