Health Tips - Vaccines and Mercury
For almost 80 years, vaccines in the United States have contained thimerosal which is 49.5% ethylmercury, probably the most toxic form of mercury. Thimerosal was banned decades ago in Russia, Denmark, Austria, Britain, Japan and Scandinavia.
Dr. Boyd Haley, PhD, chairman of the University of Kentucky chemistry department, has said, “You couldn’t even construct a study that shows that thimerosal is safe. It’s just too toxic. . . .If you inject thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a Petri dish, the culture dies . . . . . it would be shocking if one could inject it into an infant without causing damage.” See video of mercury applied to a living nerve cell.
Manufacturers report varied effects of thimerosal directly. Per Eli Lilly: “Early signs of mercury poisoning in adults are nervous system effects, including narrowing of the visual field and numbness in the extremities. Exposure to mercury in utero and in children can cause mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe motor coordination impairment.”
As stockpiled vaccines containing thimerosal are likely to be around for some time, read the insert that comes with your own particular vaccine package before you are injected to see what yours contains. Do not accept media spin or reassurances from MDs that it is no longer in vaccines.
Vaccines still produced with thimerosal:
- Influenza (flu shot)
- DT (Diphtheria and Tetanus)
- DTwP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis)
- Meningococcal vaccine
Best idea is to keep your immune system in great condition!
