Kennedy Jr. 'This book is going to scare people'

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - At least a dozen scathing reviews were printed about Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s new book on a preservative used in vaccines before it was released. It's not fair, says Kennedy Jr., and he explained why during Good Day New York.

'Thimerosal: Let The Science Speak-The Evidence Supporting The Immediate Removal of Mercury- A Known Neurotoxin – From Vaccines' is a culmination of three years of research about a preservative known to injure and kill people.

"They attacked me for what they believed was going to be in the book which was a discussion about autism and that is not in the book," said Kennedy Jr.

The prominent environmental attorney takes a closer look at the mercury based preservative that was order removed by the Federal Drug Administration in 1998 from all topical medicines due to its toxicity.

"The CDC at the same time was recommending higher and higher doses in vaccines and we started to see a giant rise in neurological disorders in our children," said Kennedy Jr.

Despite its removal from pediatric vaccines, Thimerosal levels remain virtually unchanged.

"For the first time in history, fetuses are being exposed to Thimerosal—if a pregnant woman takes a flu shot— that's about 800 times the amount of mercury the CDC recommends," said Kennedy Jr.

The book should serve as a warning, according to Kennedy Jr., and will likely "scare people."

"The CDC is not listening. We sat on this book for a year. We don't want to diminish public faith in vaccines. We want full coverage. (But) show me a single science publication that says Thimerosal is safe and I'll walk away from this issue," added Kennedy Jr.

He suggests Americans get vaccinated but ask for a Thimerosal-free vaccine.

Kennedy Jr.'s new book, Thimerosal, is now available in stores.

We love each other and yet we annoy each other," said Lewis. The pair was quite the comedic duo on the hit HBO show.
