When the Homeland Security Bill was passed it had a hidden rider attached protecting Eli-Lilly, the original maker of thimerosal, the mercury based preservative in vaccines, from our litigation. The Bush Administration also asked that our records, in the Federal Court of Claims, be sealed from the public.

Doctors Question CDC Flu Stats CDC’s own data posted at the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics show that the influenza vaccines don't work.
