The National Health Federation leads in the fight for the future of health freedom!

NHF's Mission

The NHF is an international consumer-education, health-freedom organization working to protect individuals’ rights to consume healthy food, take supplements and the choice to use alternative therapies without unnecessary government restrictions.

NHF's Vision

NHF envisions a World free of any and all artificial impediments to securing and retaining excellent, abundant health and health freedom. Individuals should be free to choose for themselves their own means of maintaining and regaining optimal health.

NHF's Promise

NHF, together with health-freedom friends and colleagues throughout the World, vows to change and save lives through our uniquely leveraged position on the international political stage impacting food, nutritional supplements, and healing.
On Thursday, August 18, 2011, scientists and advocates from the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD) met with officials from the United States (US) Department of State and other government agencies. This meeting discussed the inclusion of pharmaceuticals in the upcoming treaty negotiations in Nairobi, Kenya about global treaty on mercury being developed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). CoMeD had previously expressed its gratitude to see pharmaceuticals listed in “Annex C (Mercury-added product not allowed)” of the latest draft of the proposed treaty.

CoMeD, and the international coalition it leads, provided a compendium of the latest evidence for the serious danger represented by the on-going use of mercury in medicine, especially Thimerosal (49.6% mercury by weight) in vaccines as well as the continuing use of mercury-silver-amalgam fillings in dentistry. Thimerosal, still used as a vaccine preservative and in-process sterilizing agent, is an unnecessary component in several vaccines, including influenza, and a sometimes-undisclosed component in other drugs. Its use has been repeatedly associated with neurodevelopmental disorderscancerbirth defects and miscarriage. Those harmed most by Thimerosal in vaccines are the unborn and the newborn. Finally, CoMeD explained the feasibility of using 2-phenoxyethanol, a much less toxic, non-bioaccumulative, cost-effective alternative to Thimerosal.

Members of CoMeD declared that, in terms of 21st Century science, medicine, law, and ethics, mercury-based medicines and products are clearly unnecessary bioaccumulative toxic materials, and, as such, they should be immediately banned for the sake of the public health. CoMeD also explained that, while the US Department of State may lack the power to protect the American public by directly making pharmaceuticals mercury-free, it is within the diplomatic power of the US Department of State to recommend that, by treaty, all pharmaceuticals should be mercury-free.

In 1999, the US Public Health Service and American Academy of Pediatricscalled for Thimerosal to be removed from US Thimerosal-preserved vaccines"as soon as possible". Since then, Thimerosal has been removed from most of the previously Thimerosal-preserved, US vaccines. Dr. Mark Geier of CoMeD challenged the current inequities in the vaccines provided: “Children around the world, no matter their place of birth or their income level, deserve safe mercury-free vaccines. The practice of providing mercury-reduced and mercury-free vaccines to developed countries while insisting that developing nations take mercury-preserved ones is wrong.”
