So in one day a 2 month old, 12 # (5.5 kgs) child gets DPT (25 micrograms), HIB (25 micrograms), Hep B (12.5 micrograms) = 62.5 micrograms 5.5 kgs child should only be exposed to 0.1 X 5.5 = 0 .55 micrograms and instead get 62.5 micrograms in ONE DAY!!!!!!!
Thimerosal is currently being reduced or removed from some vaccines (but some of the old are still being given, some of the new still has it in but reduced and many still have it.

Video Reveals Just How Mercury Affects Brain Neurons A University of Calgary Faculty of Medicine research team has found that exposure to mercury causes degeneration of brain neurons in animals. The scientific findings are being published in a cover story in the April edition of the British journal NeuroReport. The researchers' academic paper is supported by a time-lapse video recorded from a microscope camera showing how neurons degenerate when they are exposed to mercury.

Advocates for Children's Health Affected by Mercury Poisoning (A-CHAMP) A-CHAMP is a national, non-partisan organization formed by parents in support of children with neurodevelopmental and communication disorders. We are dedicated to advancing public policy issues affecting our children, protecting their human and civil rights, educating the public and media, sharing our goals with state and federal officials, and holding accountable those in government who do not act in the best interest of our children. Because one in six children now suffer from neurodevelopmental disorders according to statistics published by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in February 2004. A growing body of scientific studies have indicated that exposure to neurotoxins, such as mercury in vaccines (Thimerosal) may have contributed to the rapid rise in disorders such as AD/HD, Asperger's, PDD NOS, Autism and Acrodynia.
The replacement for mercury in vaccines is this-2-phenoxyethanol (2-PE) has it been studied for safety? I think not!

Toxic Tipping Point Mother Jones Magazine - paid viewing only - well worth it -"In August of 2001, Rita Shreffler of Nixa, Missouri, sent her son's baby tooth to a lab. A year earlier, nine-year-old Andy had been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism, and Shreffler had just read a report in the journal Medical Hypotheses suggesting that such neurological disorders might be the result of mercury poisoning associated with an additive in children's vaccines."

A link between thimerosal and the brain: Can vaccines affect central nervous system function? New research from Northeastern University pharmacy professor Richard Deth and colleagues from the University of Nebraska, Tufts, and Johns Hopkins University, there is an apparent link between exposure to certain neurodevelopmental toxins and an increased possibility of developing neurological disorders including autism and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. - Research in April 2004, Molecular Psychiatry, article from February 2004
Activation of methionine synthase by insulin-like growth factor-1 and dopamine: a target for neurodevelopmental toxins and thimerosal January 27, 2004. Boyd Haley comment..... Make sure your readers understand that one nanomolar thimerosal effectivey inhibits the enzyme in question, methionine synthase, and that this level is considerably below the body concentration of thimerosal after most childhood vaccinations. It is a direct tie-in between thimerosal exposure and a biochemical abnormality (lowered methylation of cellular molecules) observed in most autistic children. Boyd E.

A bizarre exchange of letters in JAMA. Dr. Paul "the more mandated
vaccines the better" Offit criticizing Halsey for the thimerosal removal
episode. As if uninfected babies actually get infected with hepatitis B.
No mention of the incidence of hepatitis B disease in 0-1 age group (54
cases in 4 million babies: CDC data). Halsey's response "The
ethylmercury in thimerosal is neurotoxic ..." Uninfected babies don't
need protection from hepatitis B, they need protection from idiotic
doctors and health officials like Offit and Halsey who presided over
vaccination policy when thimerosal was administered and hepatitis B
vaccine for not-at-risk newborns was mandated.
Mercury has been and continues to be in many DTP, DTaP, HIB, Hep B, Flu Vax, Rabies Vax, RhoGam, DT, Td, TT, DTwP w/HIB, Meningitis C.
Also of serious concern is the mercury in amalgams in our teeth - moms are passing on mercury to babies from the mercury amalgams in their mouths - as fetuses and with breastfeeding.
