This is a place to keep my research regarding Vaccines/mercury.
Vaccines have long been something that I have studied as I have a son who is autistic but who also has had many"autoimmune" (and other) issues such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease, tourette's, seizures, etc.
For years the medical establishment claimed that there is no association between auto-immune disease and autism. But I have known that there is an auto-immune link as many parents report similar issues in their child/children as I have seen in mine.
Whether to give my son more vaccines has been a huge parenting decision for me and so I think this is probably the best place to put my research as I think other parents may be concerned with this issue also.
So the mercury and vaccines safety debate is something that I have folllowed and studied for many years now. I have even read articles from "experts" saying that mercury has been found to be good for you as data is manipulated to "prove" that it is harmless, even though it is one of the most damaging "neurotoxins" existing in the world.
In this most recent article you will notice that they talk of natural sources of mercury as well as that fish you eat can be contaminated with mercury. But they say nothing about vaccines, mercury/silver fillings or HF corn syrup which are also some of the major contributors to our "mercury load" of toxins in our bodies.
HF Corn Syrup article...
Almost half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contained mercury.
This (flu shot) vaccine contains 25 micrograms of ethyl Mercury in one dose...The CDC believes that the average 110-pound woman is allowed to have 5 micrograms per day without adverse reactions. If she were to get a flu shot and have a tuna fish sandwich for lunch she would have just received 42 micrograms of Mercury, eight times the safe level...If you look at the MSDS for Thimerosal, it says, "Exposure to mercury in utero and in children can cause mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe motor coordination impairment." Eli Lilly MSDS June 13, 1991.
When mercury poisoned, women exposed to mercury when pregnant actually do better than most others in the population because the mercury goes into the fetus and so causes little damage to the mother herself.
So here is a "blurb" from the article out this weekend...
A new large study of more than 2,000 US women found an association between mercury exposure and elevated levels of a thyroid antibody that is often higher in patients with autoimmune diseases, conditions in which immune system mistakes some part of the body as a pathogen and attacks its own cells...Previous findings had tied mercury to certain health problems including heart and nervous immune diseases particularly in women of childbearing age and young children.
