Sixth Study in Recent Months Links Mercury in Flu Shots to Brain Damage, Autism
In the Vigilant Citizen article entitled Dumbing Down Society Part 2: Mercury in Foods and Vaccines, the most common sources of Mercury were described along with its devastating effects of Mercury on the human brain. Mercury is even more toxic on the undeveloped brains of children who, are the ones absorbing the most mercury through vaccines. In fact, children receive no less than 21 vaccines before the age of six, many of them containing Thimerosal, a mercury-based compound used as a preservative. Despite efforts by some groups to dismiss or discredit researchers linking mercury-laced vaccines to brain damage (including autism), many new studies keep proving the contrary. Here’s an article about the latest study on the subject (you can read the abstract of the study here).

Yet another peer-reviewed, scientific study proving the connection between the mercury in medicine and human illnesses has just been released.  The latest study is the sixth one published in recent months.  This report specifically examines the harm inflicted on developing fetuses and children by Thimerosal, a mercury-based compound routinely used as a preservative in flu shots.

Members of non-profit groups like the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD) are actively sharing the latest scientific data about the dangers of medical mercury with the public, largely because they recognize that the mercury in Thimerosal is a factor in numerous childhood diseases.

Thimerosal is the Eli Lilly trade name for sodium ethylmercurithiosalicylate when used as a preservative in vaccines and other drug products.  It is also known as “Thiomersal” in Europe and “Merthiolate” when used as an antiseptic.  Consisting of approximately 49.6% mercury by weight, Thimerosal has been phased out of many vaccines in the United States because of concerns about its “potential risk.”  However, it is still in most flu shots even though much safer, cost-effective alternatives are already being used.

The newest study about Thimerosal, from the University of Brazil, warns that while vaccines are essential to the well-being of children around the world, the use of Thimerosal should be reconsidered.  The author, Dr. José Dórea, reviews the published science which demonstrates that infant exposure to the amount of Thimerosal in vaccines is toxic to human brain cells.

A number of recent studies have further suggested that the mercury used in everyday medical products, such as flu shots and amalgam, or “silver” dental fillings, contributes to causing a wide variety of illnesses, including autism and other developmental diseases in children and Alzheimer’s disease in adults.

Currently, the United Nations Environmental Programme is working to create international mercury regulations by 2013, and the European Commission is expected to announce their findings about health risks associated with mercury-based fillings this month.  The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is also re-evaluating the safety of mercury-based fillings.

While governmental groups around the world consider the dangers of mercury, the debate over Thimerosal continues to grow.  When Bill Gates recently made remarks insinuating that people who question the safety of vaccines were killing children, many critics of Thimerosal were shocked because they agree with the need for vaccines and want to maintain public confidence in the vaccine program.

Rev. Lisa Sykes, President of CoMeD and mother of a mercury-poisoned child, responded, “Mercury is known to cause serious harm, especially to fetuses and children because of their smaller size.  Why remove Thimerosal from pediatric vaccines only to inject it into pregnant women and children with recommended flu shots?  They removed Thimerosal from other vaccines, so it should also be removed from flu shots.”

When I was young I hardly had any vaccines, which were all recommended by the Government. Now the kids are asked to have 3-4 times more vaccines. Quite telling.


Thanks, Stella


I dont get it is it all vaccines that contain Mecury because the ones in school that we get every so often i always refuse because i dont believe in them i think they just dumb you down and the people that give them say that i am uneducated and refusing for the wrong reasons .. am i doing the right thing by refusing them?


yes you are doing the right thing. the human body has an innate capability of healing itself, given the proper tools (nutrition). vaccines are unnecessary but you will find most advocate it because they don't realize there is a better way (the natural way).

so what i say to people when they say they dont want the flu…… i say… dont put the virus in your body. put vitamins and minerals in so your body can do what it has evolved to do- heal itself. good luck.


Sadly, my son was vaccinated before I found knowledge of their dangers. He’s diagnosed as on the ASD. I’m sure him being vaccinated is what caused his condition. However, the God I serve who is the King of kings & Lord of lords, gave us word before he was born to our pastor that despite appearances our son would be fine. His word cannot return void & our son is a miracle of faith. He is progressing beyond their comprehension. And although I’ve had my moments of weakness, I stand firm on His promise. My son however, will not be receiving a single vax again in his life!

Bless you faithful! And your son!


Thank you Sarah, bless u as well 🙂

Things That Make You

I don't understand why my posts were deleted, but whatever…

I posted a personal story on here a while back about my middle niece and what I believe the vacc's did to her when VC had diff article w/the same subject. I said it then, and I will say it again. I'm a nurse and if the day comes that I have children, they WILL NOT be vaccinated. With what I know now, with everything that's been shared with me by Doc's and other nurses on the subject, I will no way let it happen. And as a health care professional my only advice to other ppl is the same thing, protect yourselves and your babies, cus the vacc's are like playing russian roulette…. 'Nuff said


I believe that mercury is dangerous

And anytime the media try to push something so eagerly I have my suspicious

That is why I wanna tell people to be wise and always question everything and to always precheck any information your givin by anyone.dont swallow blindly and don't trust anything 100 percent


Vaccines, regardless of them containing mercury or not, are just simply dangerous and a huge risk. We don't need them at all. We know the agenda by now…depopulation and managing the herd (aka control). Keep you dumb and sick and an unquestioning, apathetic sheep.


My children also had vaccines before I knew better, but I had heard rumors of links to autism, and questions about fevers and seizures; so I waited until they were all 4, when they were walking and talking, and "had" to get them for school, so late and off schedule, but they got their "required" doses. Now I wish I knew better, or wish I was empowered to know that vaccines, I believe, are useless, unproven really. I have read that the vaccine schedule is done early, with doses so close together only to make sure it is done, not because babies need the vaccine so soon. Read the vaccine product disclaimer on a manuf. dose – some state 30%-40% possible effectiveness. Never 100%. Yet, a possible roulette chance of a side effect? Currently, we refuse all vaccines, and have never gotten the flu nor h1n1 (and in last 2 years my children – all in school – never got the flu). Good handwashing and healthy fruits and veges (maybe the govt could reinvest the vaccine money into fresh fruits and veges). Now some states are requiring additional "pertussis" vaccine boosters for junior high kids because of all of the… Read more »


Do people not find it odd that autism was not so widespread years ago? How can anyone accept this as normal?


Emery- it was wide spread years ago but they called it by a different name. Back then they were diagnosed as having down syndrome or mentally retarded and most likely locked away in mental institutions.

We used to listen to older people…but that's changed. Not just because memory has become more fragile than money, but because our society has changed with a rapidity that never existed before. When we can go from "no rural electricity" to cell phones that connect to the internet in eighty years, it can be hard to trust what Grandma and Grandpa may say even if they're untouched by Parkinsons and Alzheimers.

Consider that teenagers today are in constant contact with their friends. All of us above thirty-five remember what it was like to have to set time aside to meet (or even talk) with friends, how costly phone calls were (and how we prized them), how much effort was taken when we typed stuff (compared with being able to work infinite revisions before printing it out on a printer) and how we depended on three regulated networks for our news plus CNN (instead of the present free-for-all that is the internet) and…well, you know, lotsa other stuff. Nothing our elders grew up with.


I agree with you fully, but I do listen to my elders. I seek advice from those who are wise and not those who are lost- and I like to learn something new every day. I am only connected to a computer for work- otherwise, I am technologically disconnected. It is easy to get sucked into the fast paced life of society, but I prefer to take it all in stride and observe what is happening so quickly around us all. I try to remember for my brothers and sisters of old what it is like to truly go without, to not have modern conveniences… and I prefer their lives to this one. But there is only so much one can do. I do fear for this coming generation because I do not believe most will have the mental capacity to consider 'days of old'.


Another thought: they may have had a different label for an autistic baby…like slow, or retarded.

Autism wasn't even well known until the eighties. I certainly don't remember even hearing the word before the early eighties.

I'm sure that many times a severely autistic person would have been set aside as a sub-standard child (whatever label they may have used at the time) and hidden from society as long as possible, while a less autistic (or aspergic) child would have been shoehorned into society and set for a life less than their "more normal" siblings.

Sarah Connor

I follow you……but the thing is, they are not slow, or retarded. They are unsocial, and brilliant many times. According to Autism Speaks, we are now at a 1 in 58 (give or take) kids being diagnosed with autism. If this were always the case, we would be dealing with these people now, in social services and placement homes on a GRAND scale. We are not. It is escalating…! There were cases of 'autism' in the early 1900's…..look up "mad hatters' disease, made popular by Alice in Wonderland. This is an environment toxin kind of disease, in my humble and many more by the day…… there are many 'triggers'; vaccines being just one. I have also read some pretty interesting journals on the babies being 'born' with autism are now just consequence to the domino effect of grandma, to mother, to baby build up of these toxins over the generations as they increase and accumulate… our environment. Autism/madhatters, is potentially just a heavy metal overload…….capable of some reversal by detox. My two cents.

It never ends.

Does anyone have any more info about this?


I have talked to my childs pediatrician several times about the dangers of vaccinating. She says that the risk of them getting the virus is greater than the risk of the vaccine. This pediatrician is very dedicated and caring about my childs health. Why in the world would she lie? I do not think there is a conspiracy going on. Please comment.


I have autism: nice to know it's because of vaccines….. >:(


Gosh this stuff is harsh…ever since i was little i refused to get any type of vaccine..maybe a sign ahah everytime they had thoose school injections a refused to even show the notices to my parents and now i look back at the students all lined up pulling up their sleves while looking at me like i'm full of some diease… i feel no need for thoose things, theres nothing better than a natural way of fighting these problems and even preventing them so far only 4 injections lets hope no more 🙁


I'm glad we have VC to show us these things in writing.


Keep your chin up, Brittany- you are doing the best you can. And like someone else pointed out, there is more to the Bible than Revelations- so don't lose touch with the entire message you are supposed to receive! Try reading Ecclesiastes. Maybe I am just partial- but it helps me feel better when I want to 'care' too much, haha


Sorry I was at the beginning comments. I'm in English AP class right now. No I'm not uneducated. I was just in class at the time. I was supposed to be doing something else but I was on this site.

I have to write fast cause I got to go…

Yea but anyways, yeah I agree I honestly believe it's either my generation or the next generation when Yeshua is coming I just know its soon. I just really want to save my little brother so he will know. It makes me so sad because he is my life he is only 7 and to see him walking around singing these songs sometimes he talks about sex and stuff !Already! and my mom dosent seem to care and it hurts it really does.


In short, babies who follow the recommended vaccination schedule are injected with nearly 5,000 mcg (5 mg) of aluminum by the time they are just 1.5 years old. The FDA considers levels of aluminum up to 0.85mg to be “safe,” so you do the math on the risk involved here. Dr. Donald Miller advises the following: 1. No vaccinations until your child is 2 years old. 2. No vaccines that contain thimerosal (mercury). 3. No live virus vaccines. 4. The following vaccines should be given one at a time (not as a combination vaccine), every six months, beginning at age 2: a. Pertussis (acellular, not whole cell) b. Diphtheria c. Tetanus d. Polio (the Salk vaccine, cultured in human cells) And that would be pretty much it as far as vaccinations. Your pediatrician will not like this schedule, but if you have reviewed the evidence and still feel your child should be inoculated to a certain degree, this is a far safer alternative to the standard vaccination schedule. If your pediatrician doesn’t agree, or isn’t open to discussing this issue with you, it’s high time to find a new one who will understand your concerns. from…


I don't think the pertussis vaccine is available separately. And if I'm going to limit vaccines, why even both with the polio one? Because of horror stories about iron lungs? We may as well start vaccinating for smallpox and the plague if we are so worried about viruses that haven't been in the western hemisphere in decades.


Not all vaccines contain mercury but then again too many contain aluminium which is nasty. Read the labels, search on the net, don't just buy what they sell. Don't have combined vaccines, always leave a gap of several months between them. There is no reason to start vaccines at 2 months. Babies 6 vaccines at 2 months done in 2 minutes. Use your common sense. They aren't even capable to walk at 2 months. VC please inform peeps about aluminium in vaccines as well. Before 2004, vaccines routinely contained mercury (as Thimerosal), an extremely toxic metal, which may have contributed to the increase of children developing autism, hyperactivity, speech disorders and a number of other developmental problems. [JKN ref 2] Thankfully, this is no longer added…but another poisonous metal, aluminium, is still present in most vaccines available on the NHS. [JKN ref 3] Aluminium is also highly toxic and implicated in brain damage and behavioural problems in children. And worryingly, the addition of more vaccines to the immune schedule means that the quantity of aluminium given to babies is increasing…. [Holford advises parents to purchase private single or small combination baby vaccines.] Encouragingly, none of the single measles, mumps and… Read more »


By the way, one of my kids has eczema on its hands for 6 months. The doctor prescribed 2 different creams and it didn't improve. A friend told me about calendula which comes from a plant. I ordered a cream I found (quite cheap I must say) with calendula and aqueous cream and it was gone, 2 years ago. And last year I found an article on BBC news that aqueous cream aggravates eczema.
Go figure.


Dr R Halvorsen is an interesting physician. Just google him. Vaccines, Atopy and Allergy: Problems and Solutions – Dr Richard Halvorsen Dr Halvorsen described how, as a GP working in London and doing a bit of medical writing on the side, he had little specific interest in vaccination until he was asked to write an article on the MMR controversy when it broke in 1998. His research for the article suggested that there was some evidence, if slightly tenuous, that there could be a problem with the MMR vaccine. However, when he turned to the Department of Health and to other government bodies for evidence that the vaccine did not cause a problem, he found none at all. Concerned, he started to offer his own patients single vaccines rather than the triple jab. Looking further into vaccines, he became alarmed at the inclusion of mercury in most vaccines, and then by the inclusion of the live polio virus. Both were removed from the vaccines he offered his patients while his researches turned into a book, The Truth about Vaccines: How we are used as guinea pigs without knowing it. In 2009 he left the NHS to concentrate on childhood immunisation… Read more »
