The man who was responsible for overseeing social services in Cook County is himself accused of engaging in a years-long pattern of child abuse.

In Egypt, a team of nine scientists from prestigious Egyptian medical schools and universities have found that one in every 50 children in America have metabolic brain disease, and it could be a result of the mercury contained in vaccines.

Mercury exposure is measured by examining children's urinary porphyrins (excreted organic compounds that are biomarkers for mercury toxicity). The presence of mercury within blood and urine exploits the well-known link with vaccines and metabolic brain disease (autism), but the severity of autism is closely linked to the levels of exposure to this harmful neurotoxin.

Anne Marie Schubert is a long-time prosecutor for Sacramento. She's seen all the dirt that the bottoms of society has to offer. She's put many of them away for good.

Schubert, 53, took her son to see the family doctor in 2016. Her day was hectic as we'd expect the day of a District Attorney's to be. Her son, who she refuses to name out of privacy concerns, was having back pains. But when they arrived at the appointment, the doctor allegedly switched the focal point over to vaccines. The doctor noted that Schubert's son was overdue for the HPV vaccine.

One day, when she was 14 and feeling ill, Daylesha Brown's mother took her to a Baltimore hospital and did not return for her. Child Protective Services (CPS) placed her in a group home and she was forced to move to other homes for the next three years.

So last year when Brown discovered her daughter, Sa-Maji, had lead poisoning, a lingering problem in Baltimore where the rate of poisoning among children is nearly twice the national average, she was wary that she would lose her child to CPS because of her transient lifestyle. She wanted to spare her child the misfortunes she had experienced.
