Natural News reports on a government report published in 2003 that admits to a dorect link between Thimerosal in vaccines, and nervous disorders in children.
(NaturalNews) A government report published in 2003 acknowledges a direct link between vaccines containing Thimerosal and Neurodevelopmental disorders in children.
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.”
What is Thimerosol
“Drugs.com provides accurate and independent information on more than 24,000 prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines & natural products” reads the statement.
Drugs.com describes thimerosol as:
“Antiseptic used topically and as a preservative in vaccine preparations.”
What thimerosol is, is an organomercury compound used as an antiseptic and anti-fungal and as a preservative in vaccines, immunoglobulin preparations, skin test antigens, antivenins, ophthalmic and nasal products, and tattoo inks.
Under the laws of mass medication – one medication for all, Thimerisol in vaccines can cause autism, mental retardation and speech disorders in children.
– 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)
The Food and Drugs Administration, U.S. states:
Over the past several years, because of an increasing awareness of the theoretical potential for neurotoxicity of even low levels of organomercurials and because of the increased number of thimerosal containing vaccines that had been added to the infant immunization schedule, concerns about the use of thimerosal in vaccines and other products have been raised. Indeed, because of these concerns, the Food and Drug Administration has worked with, and continues to work with, vaccine manufacturers to reduce or eliminate thimerosal from vaccines.
Thimerosal has been removed from or reduced to trace amounts in all vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years of age and younger, with the exception of inactivated influenza vaccine . A preservative-free version of the inactivated influenza vaccine (contains trace amounts of thimerosal) is available in limited supply at this time for use in infants, children and pregnant women. Some vaccines such as Td, which is indicated for older children (≥ 7 years of age) and adults, are also now available in formulations that are free of thimerosal or contain only trace amounts. Vaccines with trace amounts of thimerosal contain 1 microgram or less of mercury per dose.

FDA itself referred to:
“Several cases of acute mercury poisoning from thimerosal-containing products were found in the medical literature with total doses of thimerosal ranging from approximately 3 mg/kg to several hundred mg/kg. These reports included the administration of immune globulin (gamma globulin) (Matheson et al. 1980) and hepatitis B immune globulin (Lowell et al. 1996), choramphenicol formulated with 1000 times the proper dose of thimerosal as a preservative (Axton 1972), thimerosal ear irrigation in a child with tympanostomy tubes (Rohyans et al. 1994), thimerosal treatment of omphaloceles in infants (Fagan et al. 1977), and a suicide attempt with thimerosal (Pfab et al. 1996). These studies reported local necrosis, acute hemolysis, disseminated intravascular coagulation, acute renal tubular necrosis, and central nervous system injury including obtundation, coma, and death. (IOM)”
It is a little futile to expect the government to do something about the problem, especially in the U.S. because their program/policy is to vaccinate everyone for everything – why… follow the money, but it is for potential consumers to become aware of the false notion that vaccines are the cure all to illness, and that within that vaccines more so today than in the past are not properly tested before going onto the market, and the pharmaceutical industry is only interested in profits, not health. These factors many will not face until it is too late, or when they begin to question why “I am/my child is beign forced to take a vaccine by law!
