For those who may not be familiar with thimerosal, it is an organomercury compound that has well known antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. It is used as a preservative in vaccines, immunoglobulin preparations, skin test antigens, antivenins, ophthalmic and nasal products, and tattoo inks.
Here is the study published at Pubmed.gov website:
“We were initially highly skeptical that differences in the concentrations of thimerosal in vaccines would have any effect on the incidence rate of neurodevelopmental disorders after childhood immunization. This study presents the first epidemiologic evidence, based upon tens of millions of doses of vaccine administered in the United States that associates increasing thimerosal from vaccines with neurodevelopmental disorders.”
This report has demonstrated what the alternative medical community has been stating for years, but has been consistently denied by both the mainstream news and mainstream medicine, that a direct link exists between children that develop autism, mental retardation and speech disorders and vaccines containing thimerisol.
To those that study alternative medicine, this is no surprise. It’s also no surprise that disease outbreaks throughout the last hundred years almost always occur in vaccinated rather than unvaccinated populations. Here are just a few examples:
– In 1871-2, England, with 98 percent of the population aged between 2 and 50 vaccinated against smallpox, it experienced its worst ever smallpox outbreak with 45,000 deaths. During the same period in Germany, with a vaccination rate of 96 percent, there were over 125,000 deaths from smallpox. (The Hadwen Documents)
– In Germany, compulsory mass vaccination against diphtheria commenced in 1940 and by 1945 diphtheria cases were up from 40,000 to 250,000. (Don’t Get Stuck, Hannah Allen)
– In the USA in 1960, two virologists discovered that both polio vaccines were contaminated with the SV 40 virus which causes cancer in animals as well as changes in human cell tissue cultures. Millions of children had been injected with these vaccines. (Med Jnl of Australia 17/3/1973 p555)
– In 1967, Ghana was declared measles free by the World Health Organization after 96 percent of its population was vaccinated. In 1972, Ghana experienced one of its worst measles outbreaks with its highest ever mortality rate. (Dr H Albonico, MMR Vaccine Campaign in Switzerland, March 1990)
More recent news stories have only proven the direct relationship between vaccinations and outbreaks of the very diseases they’re meant to prevent. Here is a recent article by Mike Adams showing that whooping cough outbreaks are higher among children already vaccinated. (http://www.naturalnews.com)
Another study was published in 2007 in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, an authoritative journal featuring original toxicological research, “A Case Series of Children with Apparent Mercury Toxic Encephalopathies Manifesting with Clinical Symptoms of Regressive Autistic Disorders,” by Geier and Geier (2007).
The journal states:
“This new study leaves little doubt there is a direct causal link between mercury exposure from Thimerosal-preserved biological products (vaccines and Rho(D) products) and mercury poisoning diagnosed as an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Thimerosal (49.55% mercury by weight) is a highly toxic mercury compound used as a preservative in some OTC and prescription drugs, including most flu shots given to pregnant women, infants, children, adults, and the elderly.”
Not only are vaccines essentially useless, but vaccines containing mercury are definitely harming children. However, the mainstream media not only continues to deny any link between mercury and neurological disorders, it is actually trying to convince the public that the exact opposite may be true.
