Founded in 1965 as a non-profit medical association, the AAEM brings together physicians and scientists interested in the complex relationship between the environment and health. With an elite membership of highly trained physicians and clinicians, the Academy is committed to advancing the field of Environmental Medicine through member development and education, public awareness and research.

Whereas, scientific research has clearly identified that mercury is a known toxic substance that adversely affects human health, and;

Whereas, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine educates physicians and the public about the dangers of and subsequent prevention and treatment of environmental toxicity; and

Whereas mercury in vaccinations constitutes a significant exposure to adults, children, and infants, and;

Whereas the time is ripe for recognizing like-minded and synergistic participants in the field of environmental medicine, therefore be it resolved that:

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM):

1. Is opposed to the international use of mercury in any material that is implanted, ingested, or injected in the human body, including all forms used in medicine, including but not limited to any medicaments, specifically vaccinations.

2. Supports any legislative efforts that effectively reduce human exposure to mercury.

Approved by the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine on October 25, 2006..
