    I wanted to link you guys to a study detailing how mercury can cause numerous chronic health conditions. Here’s the link to the actual study: http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/dailys/02/Sep02/091602/80027dde.pdf

    Here’s a link to a reformatted version that should be easier to read and sift through. I take no credit. It’s not my blog, but the blog of a guy that I follow: http://howirecovered.com/mechanisms-by-which-mercury-causes-over-30-chronic-health-conditions/

    Here are some snippets:

    “The public appears to be generally unaware that considerable scientific evidence supports that mercury is the metal causing the most widespread adverse health effects to the public, and amalgam fillings have been well documented to be the number one source of exposure of mercury to most people, with exposure levels often exceeding Government health guidelines and levels documented to cause adverse health effects.”

    “A study at the U.S. CDC found “statistically significant associations” between certain neurologic developmental disorders such as attention deficit disorder (ADD) and autism with exposure to mercury from thimerosal‑containing vaccines before the age of 6 months (476), and a followon study using federal vaccine data bases confirmed that autism, speaking disorders, and heart arrest have increased exponentially with increasing exposures to mercury thimerosal-containing vaccines (476b). Thimerosal has also been found to cause hormonal effects (555, 413). Prenatal exposure to mercury has also been found to predispose animals and infants to seizures and epilepsy (5, 52).”

    “A large U.S. Centers for Disease Control epidemiological study, NHANES III, found that those with more amalgam fillings (more mercury exposure) have significantly higher levels of chronic health conditions (543). The conditions in which the number of dental amalgam surfaces were most highly correlated with disease incidence were MS, epilepsy, migraines, mental disorders, diseases of the nervous system, disorders of the thyroid gland, cancer, and infectious diseases (543).”

    “A high percentage of patients with oral mucosal problems along with other autoimmune problems such as CFS have significant immune reactions to mercury, palladium, gold, and nickel (46, 60, 118, 313, 81, 90, 212, 313, 342, 369, 375, 456, 468), including to mercury preservatives such as thimerosal. 94% of such patients had significant immune reactions to inorganic mercury (MELISA test) and 72% had immune reactions to low concentrations of HgCl2 (<0.5 ug/ml). 61% also had immune reaction to phenylHg, which has been commonly used in root canals and cosmetics (313, 468)."

    It would be better if you would refer to the FDA page that refers to this study, rather than only a link to the study. Now we’re missing the context. Please don’t withold the context from us, as it might be very important.

    This, for example, is not true. Fish is the number one source of exposure to mercury.

    Correlation differs from causation.

    For example, please explain why the number of autism cases continues to rise after thiomersal was removed from most vaccines. We now have the situation that an increase in autism correlates with a decrease in thiomersal exposure.

    Correct. Many chronic health conditions affect the composition of our oral bacteria and our immune system. Thus, many chronic health conditions result in more cavities, which result in more fillings.

    At this moment, we see a correlation between chronic health conditions and amalgam fillings. In ten to fifteen years, we will see a correlation between chronic health conditions and composite fillings.

    How about you take your own advice: correlation differs from causation.

    The reason autism continues to increase is because we live in an increasingly toxic world. There is also a cumulative mechanism at play here where each generation gets more toxic as the toxic burden from mothers is passed on to the children.

    It is much more plausible that placing the second most toxic substance on earth, mercury, in one’s mouth causes chronic health conditions than the reverse.

    Correlation differs from causation, I’m glad you understood that part.

    Your statement, however, is:
    “Amalgam fillings and thiomersal vaccinations have been abandoned for two generations in a row. Still, the prevalence of autism is increasing. This proves that amalgam fillings and thiomersal vaccinations cause autism!”

    Huh???

    Can you please explain your reasoning???

    First of all, thimerosal vaccines have NOT been abandoned.

    http://www.naturalnews.com/035432_vaccines_mercury_court_case.html

    [indent]”It is a common myth today that the vaccines administered to children no longer contain the toxic additive thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative linked to causing permanent neurological damage. But a recent federal case involving the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has revealed that, contrary to this widely-held belief, thimerosal is actually still present in many batch vaccines, including in the annual influenza vaccine that is now administered to children as young as six months old.”[/indent]
    Second, there is a cumulative mechanism at play here. I have already raised this point for you. Mothers pass on their toxic load to their unborn babies in utero.

    http://www.chemicalbodyburden.org/whatisbb.htm

    [indent]”Another source of exposure is the chemical body burden of our mothers. During pregnancy, the chemicals stored in a woman’s body have the ability to cross the placenta where they may cause harm. Some chemicals from a mother’s body are also mobilized and transferred to the breasts as she produces breast milk. These chemicals are then transferred to the baby during breastfeeding. Breast milk remains the best food for babies, as recent studies show, because of its immunological, nutritional and psychological benefits. The fact that industrial chemicals have contaminated breast milk is tragic. Ironically, breastfeeding appears to offset some of the damage created by contaminants during fetal development. Some of the chemicals we receive from our mothers in utero and through breastfeeding remain with us for years, an unintended legacy that our mothers pass on as their body burdens become our own.”

    “Fetal exposure to mercury causes attention, memory, and learning problems later in life. Brain development is also impaired in fetuses and infants exposed to lead.”[/indent]
    http://watoxics.org/toxicswatch/no-one-can-escape-toxic-chemicals

    [indent]”Two new studies have provided even more evidence that toxic chemicals used in everyday products contaminate the bodies of pregnant women, who pass the chemicals on to their fetuses before birth.”

    “The Harvard and CDC scientists and their collaborators recently published research that examined chemicals in 15 mother-child pairs, measuring to what extent the chemicals cross the placenta and reach the fetus. They measured a total of 87 chemicals and found nearly all of them in both mother and fetus.”[/indent]
    Third, thimerosal-free does not necessarily mean mercury free.

    http://www.greenhealthwatch.com/newsstories/newsvaccination/mercury-still-in-vaccines.html
    http://www.vaccineriskawareness.com/Mercury-Free-Vaccines-Still-Have-Mercury-In-Them

    [indent]”In 2002, the US Department of Health asked vaccine manufacturers to remove thimerosal from the vaccines used in its mass vaccination programme. In 2004, the UK Department of Health announced that all of its vaccination programme vaccines, including its new five-in-one Pediacel jab* would shortly be thimerosal-free, but campaigning organisation Health Advocacy in the Public Interest discovered that, in the US at least, thimerosal-free did not mean mercury-free, the point of the exercise.

    Mercury specialist Professor Boyd Haley quickly discovered why. To save costs, the vaccine manufacturers had continued to use thimerosal when manufacturing the vaccines, then tried to filter it out afterwards. Sadly, filtering out the thimerosal did not remove all the mercury it contained because mercury binds persistently to proteins in the vaccine. Independent analyses also discovered that all four vaccines tested contained aluminium compounds,** which increase the toxicity of mercury still further and have been implicated in brain cell death in people with Alzheimer’s disease.”[/indent]

    There are still vaccines that do contain thiomersal. But I was talking about common childhood vaccines. In my country, those vaccines have been thiomersal-free for two generations now.

    Sure, some flu vaccinations do contain thiomersal (with good reason, but that’s a different discussion). But no child ever gets vaccinated against the common flu – at least, not in my country. I’m not talking about exceptions, like extremely vulnerable children that are recovering from a childhood cancer like leukemia – I’m talking about the standard vaccination program that applies to every child in my country.

    Those vaccines are thiomersal free. For two generations in a row.

    Yet, the prevalence of autism is still rising. This shows what has been known for decades: autism is not related to thiomersal.

    Noooooooo!

    That isn’t a valid argument. Autism is rising because they have expanded the spectrum. You have to spend time reading actual medical literature. There are many children who weren’t consider autistic in the past who qualifies for autistic now. The spectrum has increased more than 40% according to the Autism Research Conference.
    This is the only reason WHY you find more Autism today than before. This is documented and explained in medical papers.

    You are trying to impose your ideas about it without proper documentation.

    The Thimerosal-Autism Coverup With Senior Attorney of the Natural Resources Defence Council, Robert Kennedy, Jr.

    http://vaccinecasualty.blogspot.com/2009/09/thimerosal-autism-coverup-with-senior.html

    “In June 2000, a group of top government scientists and health officials gathered for a meeting at the isolated Simpsonwood conference center in Norcross, Georgia. Convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the meeting was held at this Methodist retreat center, nestled in wooded farmland next to the Chattahoochee River, to ensure complete secrecy.

    The agency had issued no public announcement of the session — only private invitations to fifty-two attendees. There were high-level officials from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the top vaccine specialist from the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva and representatives of every major vaccine manufacturer, including GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Wyeth and Aventis Pasteur.

    CDC officials repeatedly reminded the participants that all of the scientific data under discussion was strictly “embargoed”; There would be no making photocopies of documents and no taking papers with them when they left.

    The federal officials and industry representatives had assembled to discuss a disturbing new study that raised alarming questions about the safety of a host of common childhood Vaccines administered to infants and young children.

    According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten, who had analyzed the agency’s massive database containing the medical records of 100,000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the Vaccines — thimerosal — appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children.

    “I was actually stunned by what I saw,” Verstraeten told those assembled at Simpsonwood, citing the staggering number of earlier studies that indicate a link between thimerosal and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism.

    Since 1991, when the CDC and the FDA had recommended that three additional Vaccines laced with the preservative be given to extremely young infants — in one case, within hours of birth — the estimated number of cases of autism had increased fifteenfold, from one in every 2,500 children to one in 166 children.

    Vaccines makers and the government know that vaccines are causing damage.

    Strange… a top-secret gathering that’s being openly discussed on the Internet… How unlikely is that?
