Is there an Autism and Vaccine Link?
Thermosal and Autism Timeline - How did the idea that a mercury-based preservative (thimerosal) causes autism come to be? This timeline is the historical account of an unbelievable, but true, story.
It's the story of parents who knew something was wrong and never gave up. The story of brave scientists who told the scientific truth. And a story of unsung heroes - the child victims whose lives were devastated and forever changed by vaccines. To the heroes who have sacrificed so much: this timeline is to honor you with the hope that our nation will have a true understanding of your suffering.
Why Current Thinking about Autism is Completely Wrong - Rates of autism have skyrocketed over the years, from an estimated 1 child in 3,000 to just 1 in 150 kids today. Sure, wider criteria for diagnosis and better detection might explain some of it -- but not an increase of this magnitude. The real reason we are seeing increasing rates of autism is simply this: Autism is a systemic body disorder that affects the brain. A toxic environment triggers certain genes in people susceptible to this condition. And research supports this position.

What Really Causes Autism? In 1990, 6.2 of every 10,000 children born in California were diagnosed with autism by the age of 5. By 2001, that had risen to 42.5 in 10,000, and the numbers are still rising. I remember 25 years ago, the incidence of autism in the United States was only one in 100,000! Today some experts believe that the incidence of all the Autism Spectrum Disorders could be as high as one in 10 children.
Most Common Source of Calories in U.S. is LOADED With Mercury! Almost half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contained mercury, according to a new study. Mercury was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products where HFCS is the first- or second-highest labeled ingredient.The samples were found to contain levels of mercury ranging from below a detection limit of 0.005 to 0.570 micrograms mercury per gram of HFCS. And this was from samples of popular name-brand foods and beverages, including some made by Quaker, Hershey’s, Kraft and Smucker’s. The mercury in vaccines derives from thimerosal (TMS), a preservative which is 49.6% ethylmercury (eHg)
Mercury In Vaccines Was Replaced With Something Even MORE Toxic - When mercury was removed from many vaccines (except the flu vaccine) years ago, it was under the false guise that finally vaccines were now safe. What health agencies did not want you to know is that there are many other toxic additives still in vaccines, and one of them is aluminum. Aluminum has not received the widespread media attention that mercury has, therefore many people don’t realize it’s a health risk.
