Gov’t: ‘Mercury* Is a Toxic, Hazardous Waste’ (*Unless It’s in Your Vaccines)

Why is the government telling people that it is safe to shoot themselves up with toxic waste?

According to a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) press release, a $9 million clean-up plan is set to begin at a mercury reclamation facility dubbed the Mercury Refining Superfund Site in the towns of Colonie and Guilderland, New York.

Previous unsafe waste disposal activities contaminated soils and storm water runoff allowed mercury to seep into local Patroon Creek, poisoning local wildlife and the environment and posing grave danger to anyone who might come in contact with it. The release goes on to note: “Exposure to mercury can damage people’s nervous systems and harm the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs and immune systems.”

EPA Regional Administrator Judith A. Enck goes on to say, “Mercury is a strong neurotoxin that can damage the nervous system and cause other health and environmental problems. The EPA has insured that this waste site will be cleaned up and that the taxpayers will not bear the burden of addressing this legacy of toxic contamination.”
