Vaccines are a touchy subject, but one part of the subject everyone agrees on is the mercury content: it should be zero. But is it? Thimerosal (THIM) is a mercury-based compound used as a preservative in inactivated flu vaccines. Back in 1999 there was a huge push for mercury to be removed from vaccines “as soon as possible” but most vaccines today still contain THIM, nullifying the sense of accomplishment the general public feels in regards to “mercury-free” vaccines. Because they’re not.
Mercury causes neurological damage and is a “known neurotoxin, carcinogen, mutagen, teratogen, and immune-system disruptor.” Another study points out that mercury poisoning and autism have nearly the same symptoms. Coincidence? I think not.
Do flu vaccines work? Read a set of headlines and one would be very curious as to why people continue to get flu shots! Is the possibility of avoiding a few days of the flu so important that millions of people are willing to take the chance with mercury poisoning? Does it bug anyone else when Walgreens answers the phone with, “GoodmorningWalgreens,wherewegivetheflushoteveryday,howmayIhelpyou?”
Until vaccines are clearly mercury-free, I cannot with a clear conscious advise anyone to use vaccines.
