Default Vaccines: Mercury Followup

Vaccines: Mercury Followup
I wanted to follow up my other post on mercury with some information from
the book I'm reading (What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's
Vaccinations), from Chapter 3, Mercury in Vaccines: Shots of Danger?

Thimerosal has been used in vaccines since 1930. The concern over mercury in
foods and drugs began in 1997.

High levels of mercury can cause brain cells to die, and lower, chronic
levels may result in silent, or insidious effects that affect the immune
system at the cellular level. Thus the first signs of low-level mercury
poisoning may be an inability to get rid of the flu, bronchitis, or a yeast
infection, or it may lead to cancer. Thus many people may be toxic from
mercury and not even know it.

The ethylmercury in the vaccine is being injected into the bodies of infants
who do not have a fully developed immune system, and their bodies cannot get
rid of the mercury properly. The mercury in the tuna is not injected into
the bloodstream; it is eaten, which means it goes through the digestive
tract, and the liver has an opportunity to help rid the body of the poison.
In infants, the blood-brain barrier, a membrane between circulating blood
and the brain that prevents certain harmful substances from reaching the
brain, is not yet able to keep out toxins that can damage the brain. So
mercury sent directly into the bloodstream enters the brain and converts to
a form of mercury (inorganic) that remains the brain, where it does its
The author mentions the dramatic increase in autoimmune and neurological
health problems affecting children since 1964, "the year the US added six
new vaccines to the required vaccination schedule: live virus polio (five
doses), measles, mumps and rubella (MMR, two doses); Hib (four doses); and
hepatitis B (three doses)." Autoimmune and neurological health problems
include asthma, autism, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease and

There has been some victory with the removal of thimerosal from many
vaccines. Yet the government, in a joint statement from the CDC, American
Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Pediatrics and the Public
Health Services, said that "while there was no evidence of any harm caused
by low levels of thimerosal in vaccines and the risk was only theoretical,"
they agreed to remove thimerosal from vaccines "as a precautionary measure".

Do you believe thimerosal is dangerous? If so, you might have a problem with
the above organizations saying the risk is only theoretical. What does
common sense tell you about the safety of metals being injected into babies
(or anyone, for that matter)? Do you believe the above organizations when
they tout the safety of other medications and vaccines when they ignore the
danger of thimerosal? It's true that many vaccines had thimerosal removed.
However, what else do these organizations say (including your doctor,
possibly) that may not be true or a blatant negligence of the truth? Are
they truly informed and justified in saying that it is not too much to
inject a 2 month old with 7 vaccines? Can you really believe them when they
say that when your baby has an adverse reaction to a vaccination event that
it's just normal? Is there something that could be going on inside your baby
that he can't tell you about, and with the next set of vaccines, does it
worsen and build up further? Do we really understand the long-term impact of
vaccines on one's immune system? Has the government truly given you
assurance that the safety and health of your child is #1? The vaccine
industry is a huge business (If you don't know how huge, read this to start,
thanks Sara). I read on a government site that the thought behind
combination vaccines and multiple injections is to ensure that all the
vaccinations are administered. Parents don't want to make 10-15 trips to the
doctor every year to space the shots out. It's more conventient to stack
them up. Is this safe? Is it really safe???

These are the questions we ask ourselves, and they raise such a level of
concern to us.
