A new scientific study proves that the mercury-based compound used as vaccine preservative -- known as 'thimerosal' -- induces neural damage similar to that seen in autism patients. According to the study, thimerosal-induced cellular damage caused concentration- and time-dependent mitochondrial damage, reduced oxidative-reduction activity, cellular degeneration, and cell death. Thimerosal at low concentrations induced significant cellular toxicity in human neuronal and fetal cells. Thimerosal was found to be significantly more toxic than the other metal compounds examined.
More Recent Evidence
There's yet another recent study confirming the link between low-level mercury poisoning in children and diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Published in the Journal of Neurological Sciences in September 2008, the study was the first prospective, blinded cohort study to examine children diagnosed with an ASD using urinary porphyrin profile analysis (UPPA) to assess the physiological effects of mercury toxicity. They also used glutathione analysis to assess the children's susceptibility to mercury poisoning.
After much work and co-ordination - in July of this year - a growing number of Doctors have come together to give us their awareness of vaccines and their ingredients -
Medical Voices Vaccine Information Center brings awareness of vaccine issues to the forefront via medical doctors. Newly under development as of July 2009, the site will quickly become a massive library of articles, videos and presentations by doctors speaking out on the dangers of vaccines. The aim is to be an educational site for doctors who are beginning to question and become aware of the problems caused by vaccines and, additionally, a go-to resource for the public at large.
