“Trace Amounts” Leaves a Trace: Oregon Kills 2nd Exemption-Killing Bill

Eric Gladen, take a bow. Your documentary is still remembered in the hallowed halls of Oregon’s statehouse.

Autism Investigated saw Trace Amounts four years ago just after the first vaccine exemption-killing bill was killed in the Oregon legislature as a result of its screening. Watching the film made it immediately clear how it caused the death of the bill. Autism Investigated posed the following question in its review of the film at the time:

What if the most effective argument is simply shining a light on the corruption within federal agencies responsible for immunization policies states mandate and on the greater greed – not the greater good – behind the “trace amounts” of one particularly toxic vaccine ingredient?

The systematic corruption behind the toxicity of vaccines is what this documentary argues. That’s what killed an exemption-killer in 2015, and that is just what has killed another exemption-killer in 2019. Unfortunately, state legislatures now considering mandates for the first time didn’t have the benefit of already seeing Trace Amounts. Just as Oregon has killed another exemption-killing bill, Washington has just killed its vaccine exemptions and Maine’s Senate has just passed an exemption-killer.

As more state vaccine exemptions come under threat, the story of Oregon should be a lesson to us all. Killing vaccine exemption-killers doesn’t happen by promoting the poison you’re trying to stop the mandating of or by preserving the government program covering up the poisoning. It certainly won’t happen by calling crooked politicians who whitewash the vaccine-autism cover-up as “genuine in getting to an answer” or by telling advocates “you are out of your fucking mind” for wanting the corrupt vaccine program to die. It happens by speaking the truth about the poison vaccines are and about the lies the vaccine people tell us. That’s what Eric Gladen’s Trace Amounts documentary does and that’s what we should all be doing.

Well done, Eric!

Just weeks after “Trace Amounts” was reviewed at The Epoch Times, The Huffington Post removed the below April review of the same documentary for reasons not even specified to the author. No explanation has ever been given for the removal, despite requests. With the recent promotion of “Trace Amounts” by actor Jim Carrey, now is a better time than ever to reproduce the film review that Huffington Post took down for no given reason.

Film Seeks to Compel Parents to Ask Hard Questions about Mercury and Vaccinations

By Tamar Abrams

There are few issues more polarizing these days than vaccines. Merely saying the word forces us to claim a side, often vehemently. Which is why it’s interesting that the filmmakers of Trace Amounts: Austism, Mercury and the Hidden Truth say, “Many people think we are anti-vaccinations. But once they see the film, they realize we are not.” A film that attempts to shine light on the dangers inherent in one component of vaccines without taking a stand against vaccines, Trace Amounts is earnest and geeky at the same time.

The film’s director, Eric Gladen, came to the issue through a personal experience. At the age of 29, he cut himself on a rusty nail and received a tetanus shot in an emergency room. Within a short time, he was seriously ill. He blames the illness on mercury poisoning from the thimerosal contained in the tetanus injection. Quitting his job as an engineer, he embarked on a crusade to get thimerosal removed from all vaccinations and injections. If the comprehensive research that followed had resulted in a film called Trace Amounts: Mercury’s Dangers, you likely wouldn’t be reading this blog. But Gladen’s major theory in the film is that the thimerosal contained in vaccines is a major contributor to the “epidemic” of autism in children.

Shiloh Levine, Gladen’s co-director, acknowledges that most childhood vaccines have not contained thimerosal since the early 2000s, but cautions, “It is still contained in flu shots, but most parents don’t know to ask about it. We want to help them make decisions based on an educated choice, especially since the CDC is not revealing everything they know.” The film is chock full of anti-mercury arguments: scientists and researchers give lots of opinions and statistics that certainly seem to show a strong connection between mercury and autism. And, given that it is possible to request flu vaccines that don’t contain thimerosal, parents might want to err on the side of caution. Of course there is a price for that: thimerosal-free flu shots cost an additional $3 dollars or more.

Gladen admits that for many, the film is initially a lightning rod in the vaccine debate. “Some people come to a screening and are not there with an open mind,” he says. “But after seeing it, they are just mad. It is clear that the CDC and others have severe financial stakes in not giving all the information they have. It is stunning to watch the audience reaction – they leave arguing with the CDC’s position, not ours.”

While Gladen insists he is not anti-vaccinations, he also understands those who take that position. “Anti-vaxxers are not crazy,” he says. “We need to turn the vaccine system upside down and correct the system. Injecting children with mercury is one of the bigger crimes against humanity.” He believes a third party should provide oversight to our nation’s vaccine program, ensuring its safety and accountability by the large pharma manufacturers.

Trace Amounts appears to be gaining followers, driven mostly by an endorsement from Robert F. Kennedy Jr and a grassroots community that is hosting screenings of the film. Gladen and Levine were recently in Washington DC to lobby members of Congress for legislation removing mercury from all medications. While they admit that it is an uphill labor, Levine quickly adds, “This is a labor of love. We live and breathe and eat Trace Amounts.”

Whatever side of the vaccination debate parents are on, we all share the common goal of ensuring our children’s well-being. Spending 90 minutes watching Trace Amounts wouldn’t do any of us any harm and might compel you to ask more questions the next time your child is scheduled to receive a shot.

CA SB277 Bill Mandates Harm From CDC Cover-Up

9761447

 

By Jake Crosby

What if the state could fraudulently deny susceptibility of many patients to adverse vaccine side-effects and then force those same patients to subject themselves to unnecessary harm by getting vaccinated? That is exactly what California Senate Bill SB277 does by eliminating “non-medical” exemptions – exemptions for safety concerns dishonestly denied by the state.

Yet the bill has already passed the Senate Health Committee vote and has been endorsed by The LA Times and Sacramento Bee. Reporters from both newspapers have seen the documentary “Trace Amounts,” so both newspapers know that talking points like the “overwhelming scientific consensus” supporting the safety of vaccines are fraudulent. As the film made clear, it’s not just the presence of mercury in vaccines that is the problem – the complete removal of which in Denmark preceded a fall in autism prevalence. The dishonesty of the vaccine program in denying harm from that substance and other vaccines utterly destroys the credibility of federal immunization policy and should destroy any statewide attempt to make it mandatory. Chillingly enough, LA and Sacramento “journalists” support the bill anyway. That means they are not journalists, but propagandists for the cover-up who should be investigated as such.

Meanwhile, the politicians who vote in favor of the bill despite not having seen “Trace Amounts” should be voted out for failing their constituents. The bill’s architect Richard Pan should further lose his medical license for coercing people into subjecting their children to harmful immunization policies defended on lies.

“Trace Amounts” Documentary Leaves No Trace of Doubt

trace-amounts

By Jake Crosby

What if the most effective argument against vaccination mandates is not even a direct argument against mandates themselves? What if the most effective argument is simply shining a light on the corruption within federal agencies responsible for immunization policies states mandate and on the greater greed – not the greater good – behind the “trace amounts” of one particularly toxic vaccine ingredient?

That is certainly what energetic filmmaker Eric Gladen seems to be proving with nationwide screenings of his documentary “Trace Amounts” about the harm being done to children worldwide by the mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal. What began as his own personal struggles with mercury poisoning that he attributed to a thimerosal-laced tetanus vaccine mushroomed into a decade-long journey to uncover the troubled history behind this known neurotoxin and its connection to the autism epidemic affecting America’s children.

“Trace Amounts” has already been credited with the death of legislation proposing elimination of vaccine exemptions – notably in Oregon. The film’s effectiveness should be no mystery to anyone who actually has watched the documentary. It leaves no room for reasonable doubt about thimerosal’s causation of neurological disorders or efforts by the CDC to conceal that harm from the public. Since then, the “Trace Amounts” tour has made its way here to Texas where Texans’ rights to forgo vaccination are currently under legislative threat.

As the state legislature of California also considers a senate bill to eliminate vaccine exemptions, “Trace Amounts” is now making its way to the state capital of Sacramento. The bill’s supporters will have to answer to the fact that they are seeking to force people to subject their children to a vaccine schedule based on recommendations by a federal agency that covers up vaccine injuries. Just viewing the documentary’s two-minute trailer should be enough to worry rights-denying politicians like Richard Pan – the bill’s architect. He and others like him will have far more explaining to do to whoever watches the full documentary.
