A new study, “A Mitochondrial Dysfunction, Impaired Oxidative-Reduction Activity, Degeneration, and Death in Human Neuronal and Fetal Cells Induced by Low-Level Exposure to Thimerosal and Other Metal Compounds”, published in the most recent issue of the peer-reviewed journal of Toxicology & Environmental Toxicology, confirms a causal connection between Thimerosal and the brain pathology found in patients diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

This study showed Thimerosal-induced cellular damage in human neuronal and fetal-cell model systems in a concentration- and time-dependent fashion using Thimerosal at low nanomolar (parts-per-billion) concentrations. These concentrations are comparable to those found in fetal and early infant exposure to mercury from Thimerosal-containing biologics and vaccines in the 1990s and, in some instances, today. These levels induced significant cellular toxicity in the human neuronal and fetal cells studied. The Thimerosal-induced cellular damage was consistent with that found in pathophysiological studies of patients diagnosed with an ASD. In both instances, the studies found significant mitochondrial dysfunction, reduced cellular oxidative-reduction activity, cell degeneration, and cell death.
The present study also revealed that Thimerosal is significantly more toxic than the other metal compounds studied (e.g., aluminum sulfate, methylmercury hydroxide, lead acetate, and mercuric chloride). The explanation for Thimerosal’s greater toxicity than even methylmercury hydroxide (MeHgOH) appears to be the fact that Thimerosal was chemically engineered in the 1920s to be a more highly toxic alkylmercury compound, whose biological transport and intracellular delivery properties were enhanced. Compared to MeHgOH, Thimerosal has: 1) higher aqueous solubility (i.e. ability to dissolve in water and water-based systems); 2) higher solubility in cell membranes (i.e. ability to dissolve in cell membranes); and 3) higher intracellular toxicity (i.e. ability to inactivate essential cell processes) and mercury retention.

They should be doing something about stopping this Swine Flu shot and a new wave of Autism being created with it containing Thimerosal and being targeted at children once again.

It was proven finally this month Thimerosal is linked to ASD. What every parent has always known is out there now!!! It was unsafe in 1999 and safe now for the AAP and CDC? They have proved it to be a cause of ASD click the link and read the testing they have done to prove this this month!

THIS IS WHAT THEY SAID IN 1999 SO WHAT CHANGES THAT NOW? AND MAKES THIS SAFE FOR KIDS NOW IS WHAT I WANT TO KNOW? THE NEW STUDY HAS PROVEN OTHERWISE. OF COURSE MY EMAILS TO THE AAP CONCERNING THIS HAVE NOT BEEN ANSWERED!!!! IS THIS ANOTHER COVER- UP AS BEFORE?

A press release about Mercury in Thimerosal from the National Vaccine Information Center in July of 1999 press points out that, "The cumulative effects of ingesting mercury can cause brain damage." During this same month, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) alerted the public about the possible health effects associated with thimerosal-containing vaccines. These health-related organizations strongly recommended that thimerosal be removed from vaccines as soon as possible. Under the directive of the FDA Modernization Act of 1997, the Food and Drug Administration also determined that infants who received several thimerosal-containing vaccines may be receiving mercury exposure over and above the recommended federal guidelines.
