(NaturalNews) The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently issued a policy paper condemning the current Toxic Substances Control Act (TSC Act) for failing to properly regulate the tens of thousands of toxic chemicals used in various consumer products, many of which are especially dangerous to pregnant women and young children. Though correct in its identification of chemical use as a toxic threat to society's most vulnerable individuals, the AAP hypocritically continues to support the intramuscular poisoning of children through vaccinations, which are loaded with toxic chemicals that are directly injected into children's bodies.
Several different groups have been pushing in recent years to have the TSC Act amended because it has utterly failed to keep tabs on the thousands of new chemicals introduced every single year in the US. Currently, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) only requires safety testing of some 200 chemicals, while thousands of others are specifically exempted. And the EPA does not even properly test chemicals before approving them, anyway -- it is basically a system of "safe until proven dangerous," except the only ones doing the "proving" are the chemical companies themselves (http://www.naturalnews.com/029390_chemicals_...).
"Children are not little adults," said Dr. Jerome Paulson, a member of the AAP's Council on Environmental Health, to Reuters Health, noting that children are most affected by chemical exposure. "Their bodies are different and their behaviors are different. That means that their exposures to chemicals in the environment are different, and the way their bodies (break down) those chemicals are different."
Paulson is right, which is what makes AAP's stance on childhood vaccinations highly concerning. How can a group that openly condemns environmental chemical exposure continue to endorse chemical exposure via childhood vaccinations? AAP is so in favor of vaccinations that it actually holds the yearly "National Infant Immunization Week," which happens to be going on at the same time as the group's open condemnation of the TSA Act.
On the one hand, AAP is right. Environmental chemicals are highly dangerous and need better regulation. But so are the medically sanctioned chemicals used in vaccines, which are linked to innumerable diseases and conditions (http://www.naturalnews.com/vaccines.html).
