[SaneVax: Although a study published in 2003 indicates a clear and direct link between thimerosal in vaccines and a substantial increase in neurological disorders, the FDA still 'allows' the chemical to be included in many vaccines currently in use. It is time for the FDA to live up to their mission statement, or openly admit they do not care about the health and well-being of the people who pay their salaries.]
Government report links thimerosal laden vaccines to neurological disorders
By Robert Stossel
(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.”
