Facts, regarding the misleading claim that mercury, (Thimerosal), has been removed from vaccines.


The misleading claim that mercury, (Thimerosal), has been removed from vaccines. (Partially true, but not entirely true; there is still clearly still enough there in so called trace amounts from manufacturing, and as well when synergistically combined with aluminum adjuvants, to do harm).

We have been told that mercury, (Thimerosal) had been removed from vaccines, with the exception of some of the flu vaccines. It turns out that-that was only partially true. They still use mercury in the manufacturing process of the so called killed/attenuated vaccines single dose vials or/prefilled syringes. They then claim to filter it out of the vaccine so as there is to be no more than so called “mercury traces”, and thus content of no more than up to 1 microgram per 0.5ml dose!

All multi-dose injections must contain a preservative, this is often thimerosal/mercury. To have preservative properties it must be in a strength of at least 0.01%. Equivalent to 50 microgram thimerosal per 0.5ml dose, or 25 microgram mercury.

Single dose injections do not require preservatives.

HOWEVER: During the manufacturing processes mercury may be used to prevent microbial contamination, even though it will not be present as a PRESERVATIVE in the end product.

The intention is to remove it. but because it is difficult to remove absolutely all, up to 1 microgram per 0.5ml dose is permitted to remain.

This is termed “trace” mercury and is not sufficient to have preservative properties.

The misleading catch is that injections may be termed “preservative free” because they do not contain mercury in a high enough concentration to have preservative properties – but they (including single dose injections/vaccines) may nevertheless contain “mercury traces”, up to 1 microgram per 0,5ml dose!

Myth: Thimerosal was removed from vaccines in 1999.

Truth: The Physicians’ Desk Reference, which annually lists all U.S. drug ingredients, shows many childhood vaccines still contain the full amount of thimerosal.

Here is a current list of vaccines containing thimerosal. http://www.vaccinesafety.edu/thi-table.htm

Myth: Only a trace amount of thimerosal is used when added to vaccines.

Truth: Thimerosal is added at a concentration of 1:10000. That is equivalent to 100,000 parts per billion (ppb). Half of thimerosal (C9H9HgNaO2S) is mercury. That makes 50,000 ppb mercury in the vaccine.

• 2 ppb mercury is the mandated limit in drinking water

• 200 ppb mercury in liquid waste renders it a toxic hazard

• 25,000 ppb is found in infant flu shots

• 50,000 ppb is found in regular flu shots — recommended for children, pregnant women, the elderly…

In different terms, there are 250,000 nanomolars Hg in a 0.5 ml flu shot.

It only takes 4 nM Hg to cause failure in the dendrites responsible for immune response and to cause cell death in brain neurons.

Thimerosal is toxic to developing neurons at 1 nM (1 ppb).

In other words, exceptionally low levels of thimerosal can impede neuron growth and function without actually killing the neurons.

Myth: Ethylmercury from a vaccine is less toxic than methylmercury from fish or the environment.

Truth: A paper published in 2005 showed that baby primates injected with ethylmercury retain twice as much inorganic mercury in their brains as primates exposed to equal amounts of ingested methylmercury.

So, in THIS study the reality shows that even though ethyl mercury may be excreted and or detoxed faster than methyl mercury, actually they both are potentially neuro-toxic and well potentially cumulative. How much ethyl mercury is left in the brain and other organs of the body, ir-regardless of the rate of assumed detox?

Both are forms of organic mercury. Organic converts to inorganic inside cells and becomes trapped. The cells start failing.

Myth: There are extensive volumes of data demonstrating thimerosal is safe.

Truth: This statement is the exact opposite of the truth.

The only studies suggesting it is safe to inject humans with thimerosal are epidemiological studies done by the producers, distributors and administrators of vaccines.

Much of this disinformation is published in Pediatrics which is owned by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

These epidemiological studies are the same variety of studies used by the tobacco industry to claim that smoking does not cause lung cancer.

To find the truth about thimerosal start by reading the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Then go to the medical search engine PubMed and type in thimerosal.

You will get references to over 1300 published papers concerned with the extreme toxicity of thimerosal, except for the papers published with Pediatrics’ bias.

Here is a table of thimerosal content in currently licensed vaccines according to the FDA. http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/SafetyAvailability/VaccineSafety/UCM096228#t3

The table lists ‘trace amounts’ of thimerosal ranging from 0.00012% to 0.0033%.

That’s equivalent to 1,200 ppb to 33,000 ppb.

Research shows thimerosal is toxic to neurons at 1 ppb.

Those ‘trace amounts’ are still 4 to 5 orders of magnitude higher.

Other vaccines are listed as ‘thimerosal-free’ or ‘mercury-free’.

But thimerosal is still used in the production process for many of those vaccines, after which an effort is made to filter it out.

Unfortunately the mercury has already bonded to proteins used in the vaccines and cannot be completely removed.

There is no safe level of mercury exposure.

2 ppb mercury is the mandated limit in drinking water

200 ppb mercury in liquid waste renders it a toxic hazard
600 ppb in “mercury-free” vaccines
50,000 ppb mercury in the regular flu shot, yearly!! (that would be 250 times the limit to be toxic waste and 25,000 times the limit for drinking water)
(Oh, but infant flu vaccines have only 12.5 mcg Hg!)
That would still be 25,000 ppb of mercury in one infant flu shot (yearly)
