VAXXED Producer Del Bigtree, A Discussion With Dane Wigington


The recent double screening of the profoundly important VAXXED documentary in Northern California was a big success in spite of the total media blackout of the event.  Hundreds of Northern California citizens attended this free public screening along with many more from further south in the state, and from other parts of the country. Connecting with Del Bigtree was a great pleasure and a true honor. At this most critical “time of universal deceit”, when “telling the truth is a revolutionary act”, Del is a shining example for us all. This 11 minute interview with Del gives a glimpse into one of the primary driving personalities behind the critically important VAXXED documentary

Understanding the Environmental Influences of Neurotoxins on Your Brain; Mercury Poisoning

Understanding the Environmental Influences of Neurotoxins on Your Brain: Mercury Poisoning
 By Pamela Costello MD, PhD
Holistic Neurological Surgeon, Neuroscientist, Doctor of Biological Medicine
   The Ancient Greek Physician Galen (a great scientific researcher who advanced
the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, neurology and pathology), as well
as the renaissance Physician Paracelsus, (the father of toxicology as a science),
studied, practiced, and wrote in detail and at great length of their experiences with the
neurological and physical toxicities of mercury exposure. Yet, two millennia later,
medicine remains largely in the the dark as to the role this poison plays in chronic, as
well as acute, exposures.
    Diseases of the nervous system are increasing at exponential rates.
Neuroinflammatory illness such as autism, behavioral disorders, tremors and movement
disorders,  MS, ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s dementias, psychiatric disorders,
depression and anxiety, cognitive dysfunction, insomnia, memory impairment,
neuromuscular weakness, neuropathies, tinnitus and hearing loss, headaches, and
acute and chronic pain syndromes, are all reaching epidemic numbers.  These illnesses
are  physically, emotionally, and economically costly, often causing long term disability
and unnecessary suffering.

A number of environmental toxins have been well established causes of

neurological disorders and brain dysfunction.* The most neurotoxic of the list is the
heavy metal mercury. All forms of mercury pose a significant threat to both the
developing and adult nervous systems.* It has bio-accumulated throughout our aquatic
and terrestrial ecosystems, and is now heavily entrenched in the food chain, with our
nervous systems and bodies serving as deadly endpoints.
    Neuroscientific research has demonstrated the neurotoxicity of mercury as causally
related to a number of mechanisms. It is well established as creating deficiencies of
such critical antioxidants as Selenium, as well as creating intracellular imbalances of
other essential minerals in the brain, and it has been shown to cause disruption of
neurotransmitters which are involved in the programmed cell death of neurons. These
processes all impose substantial oxidative stress on our nervous tissues, causing
neurotoxicity and associated neuroinflammation. If left untreated, these potentially
reversible and preventable processes lead to neurodegenerative disease and
irreversible cell death.
    Cases of childhood autism and multiple sclerosis, both rarities during my medical
training and neurosurgical residency, as well as adult MS, ALS, dementias, cognitive
dysfunction, and balance disorders, are increasing in all age groups. While acute
mercury poisoning is more readily recognized by mainstream medicine as a cause of
such neuroinflammatory illnesses, chronic mercury exposure typically is not. As we are
initially exposed to toxic mercury in the womb, this is a critical oversight. I measure
every one of my patients’ mercury levels, including my pediatric patients, and I am
acutely aware of the levels of mercury with which children are being born.
    How might our approach toward neurological disease be altered? Firstly, mercury
fillings are entirely avoidable. As for industrial sources, the world stage is finally
legislating tighter control of production, handling, and disposal of mercury, as has
previously been targeted with the neurotoxin lead. For those stores of deadly mercury
that have already found their way into our central nervous systems and bodies, your
neurotoxic burden can be readily assessed and safely managed by a qualified licensed
medical practitioner. Ongoing exposures can be addressed and corrected, including
safe removal of mercury fillings by a biological dentist.

In summary, neuroinflammatory illness can be prevented, halted, and reversed, when

accompanied by a neuroinflammatory and neurotoxicity assessment and followed by
a safe detoxification protocol. Without this information, many patients suffering from
neuroinflammatory illness are left with only a symptom related diagnosis, with limited
treatment options.
