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.”
