Today our 14 year old son brought home a permission slip for a three-in-one vaccination for tetanus, diptheria and pertussis(whooping cough).
In researching further into vaccinations, I have found this webpage which looks to be very informative about the harmful effects of mercury (thimerosal). I have posted news on this before, and linked the University of Calgary research team's video which shows the demyelination of the nerve sheath by mercury atoms.

There is quite a bit more info. and there are links to all the articles mentioned. I hope some of you will take a look at it. I wonder if thimerosal is being removed from animal vaccines, also?

The link for this webpage, sample below, is:

Mercury in Vaccines (Thimerosal)
Up until recently a baby in the US got 237.5 micrograms of mercury from vaccines by time he/she is 18 months. EPA recommended limit (which is ludicrous because mercury is the 2nd most toxic substance on the planet next to plutonium) - 0.1 microgram/kg/day. (UK babies still getting much mercury)
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.

01/18/05 New Study Links Thimerosal with Neurodevelopmental Disorders - David & Mark Geier

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.

The replacement for mercury in vaccines is this-2-phenoxyethanol (2-PE) has it been studied for safety? I think not!

UK government persists in using MMR and other vaccines with mercury preservative (thimerosal). I wonder why?

Published in the "Scotsman - March 13, 2004":

Code:
Britain - where medics still inject mercury into babies 

FRASER NELSON 

WHILE Britain has spent years worrying about links between autism and the MMR jab, a far more serious threat has been gathering - involving one of the oldest and most lethal poisons on earth: mercury. 

It is a proven neurotoxin, so strong that the contents of a thermometer could pollute a small lake, yet Britain’s NHS is still using it in a cheap triple DTP jab. The defence is not that mercury makes the vaccine work better - the ingredient is used simply as a preservative, to give it a longer shelf life. UK officials say there is "no evidence" that mercury is linked to autism, and there is no cause to remove it from routine vaccinations. 

But Britain is now understood to be the only developed country in the world to take this view. From Japan to the United States, mercury has been withdrawn from the child vaccination schedule precisely on the ground that doubts exist about its safety. 

The debate is not about whether the vaccines should be administered: mercury-free jabs are available on the NHS - and, in Scotland, to anyone who demands them. Nor is it a scientific argument restricted to the domain of experts: parents’ groups consistently argue that it does not require a PhD in chemistry to establish that mercury should not be injected into the body of a eight-week-old baby. 

It is instead an argument about whether parents should be told what is in the vaccine - and whether they should be given the power to decide which vaccination is best for their child. 

The NHS uses a DTwP vaccine bought from a company called Aventis. Unless parents say otherwise, this is the vaccine which will be issued. It protects against diphtheria, tetanus and whole-cell pertussis (whooping cough). The wP means a whole dose of dead pertussis toxin, in a small enough dose for the infant’s immune system to learn about the disease, and how to protect against it.
 
Mercury is a proven toxin so strong that the contents of a thermometer could pollute a small lake 

As a preservative, DTwP uses thimerosal - sometimes spelt thiomersal - which is 49.6 per cent ethyl mercury. Each injection contains 25 micrograms of mercury - which means 75 micrograms over the three-jab course in the first 16 weeks of the baby’s life. 

The mercury-free alternative, also ordered by the NHS, is called Infanrix, produced by GlaxoSmithKline. The diphtheria and tetanus components are the same - the difference is that it does not use whole-cell pertussis. This is a crucial distinction. 

In the 1970s, research was published suggesting that the whole-cell pertussis was linked to neurological disorders. This led to a worldwide scare and parents left infants unvaccinated, rather than risk the jab. 

Medical authorities the world over had outbreaks of whooping cough on their hands. The decision was taken to produce a new type of vaccine which allayed parents’ concerns. 

Scientists’ response was to use only the components of the pertussis vaccine which were absolutely necessary to provide immunisation. The result was acellular pertussis - DTaP. 

Infanrix is part of the new generation of DTP jabs. Its components - pertussis toxin, filamentous haemagglutinins and pertactin - are purified and detoxified then included in the jab. 

This process is naturally more expensive than just including whole cells of the pertussis bacillus. So Infanrix costs about twice as much as DTwP - which has made it prohibitively expensive to the third world vaccination programmes carried out by the World Health Organisation. 

Infanrix is by no means the only DTaP on the market. There are scores of products made by various manufacturers - each competing with the others on effectiveness ratings and how few side effects are produced. 

There is far less competition making DTwP jab - which is regarded in the richest countries as old technology whose time has passed. Also, there is no medical need to use mercury as a preservative when the new DTaP vaccines have none. 

This is perhaps why the DTwP does not have a brand name. It is not, by and large, something any parent would request over DTaP - even though statistics comparing the two are hard to extract from the UK health service. 

All vaccines are tested against each other, in studies normally involving tens of thousands of children. In each test which has ever been performed, Infanrix - and every DTaP vaccine - has been given a far superior "safety profile" than DTwP. 

This has nothing to do with mercury. The problem is the so-called "junk cells" which exist in the whole-cell pertussis vaccine, but have been taken out of the DTaP jab. They are found to trigger a range of unpleasant and unnecessary side effects in infants.
 
This is an argument about whether a child’s parents should be told what is in the vaccine 
 
Even in the hotly-contested world of vaccine wars, it is now beyond dispute that infants injected with DTwP are far more likely to suffer fever, convulsions or show protracted crying that could last for up to two days. All of these are triggered by the "junk cells". 

Data filed in the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm shows that the figures vary - some say that babies are three times as likely to suffer convulsions after the DTwP jab, some say 1.8 times more likely. But none dispute the trouble caused by junk cells. 

Britain’s defence - behind the use of mercury, as well as junk cells - is that the DTwP vaccine works better against whooping cough. The Department of Health argues that a child given DTaP is "twice as likely" to contract whooping cough. 

But no studies quoted by the government directly compare the two vaccines which Britain is actually using. In any case, one study - conducted a decade ago - showed the likelihood of whooping cough was one in a thousand with DTwP and two in a thousand with DTaP. These are the odds. 

David Geier, one of the scientists who produced a recent report suggesting a link between thimerosal and autism, said that debate has moved on since 1994 and the UK no longer needs reports. 

"Look at the United States. Look at Japan. They have both been using DTaP for years - and do we see any outbreak of whooping cough there? It now doesn’t matter what a few studies found - we can look at entire countries."

If you've read this far, you are obviously interested in the mercury research which keeps marching on.

This might be of interest to those who know someone with MS, or have it themselves. Bse-tester should check this one out to as the science is parallel with BSE. It is entitled:

"Cerebrospinal Fluid Protein Changes in Multiple Sclerosis After Dental Amalgam Removal" by Hal A. Huggins, DDS, MS, and Thomas E Levy, MD, JD, FACC.

link: http://www.thorne.com/pdf/journal/3-4/dentalamalgams.pdf

taken from discussion:

There is now general agreement that mercury is released from dental amalgam in the form of Hg0. Mercury vapor (Hg0) [the 0 is its charge not oxygen] is more likely than Hg+2 to concentrate in the CNS after it has passed the blood-brain barrier, helping explain much of its neurotoxicity. Inhaled mercury vapor (as from fillings) is highly lipophilic, or fat-soluble, allowing its ready passage into the blood through the alveolar membranes of the lungs. After this absorption, mercury vapor persists in the circulation long enough to permit much of it to diffuse across the blood-brain barrier. Once in the brain, it is oxidized by the intracellular hydrogen peroxide-catalase system to its divalent cation, Hg+2. Since the Hg+2 form cannot diffuse out of the different nerve cells after this transformation, mercury gradually accummulates in the brain.

Mercury has a number of mechanisms leading to toxicity in biological systems. These include the following:
- Breaking the hydrogen bonds.
- Displacement of other metallic ions from a ligand site.
- Change in tertiary protein structure, leading to inhibition of catalytic activity.
- Attachment of ligands to cell membranes, leading to inhibition or acceleration of permeability selection.
- Alteration of translational processes, leading to mutagenic and carcinogenic activity.


The vocabulary in this paper is awfully familiar with the vocabulary of BSE and other neurological disorders. There is great value in reading up on the biological activities of metal transport, with regards to all these diseases.

another quote from this study:

"Mercury is unevenly distributed in the brain and spinal cord, with the heaviest deposits found within the motor nuclei of the rhombencephalon. A disporportionately high amount of mercury is found in the anterior horn motor neurons, which innervate the skeletal muscles. The heaviest mercury accumulations in the CNS, at least in animal studies, are seen in those primary motor regions of the brain-stem and cerebellum. "

Hmmm... you don't say. The brain stem and the cerebellum, once again, this sure sound familiar!!

There was a similar incident in Ontario, last year.

I am a proponent of freedom of choice whether to vaccinate or not. Informed consent is, to me a priority. My son's health handout made this remark about thimerosal:

"What if the person who receives this vaccine is allergic to latex or thimerosal?"

What do you think of this comment R2? I think they are misleading people, having them think that the thimerosal would cause an immediate allergic reaction.

There is no mention of the long term effects of mercury.

Of course, they clearly state the vaccine they are using does not have thimerosal. I am not particular fond of vaccinations. There is much to be said for good nutrition and hygiene.

I believe there is strong evidence to support thimerosals involvement with autism. A recent television news report, commented on an autistic child that received chelation therapy and then very dramatically improved. Of course, he is not the only example, but, these people had tried everything and chelation was the only thing which worked.

A neat thing in the study I mentioned, my hubby caught it. The dentist/MD catered the type of new dental fillings to the patient, ie:

"Serum biocompatibility testing was performed on all patients to choose optimal replacement filling materials. Each patient's blood serum was exposed to the components of the composite dental materials available. Selection of a material was based on finding one that would not form any antigen-antibody complex when challenged."
Sound interesting!

Have any of you heard of Dr.Boyd Haley of the University of Kentucky. I have heard about him before, and just finished listening to a taped interview.

He has been studying the effects of mercury on the neurological system for many, many years. He direct correlates the accummulation of mercury in our brains with Alzheimers Disease. He stated that aluminum, which is also found in many vaccines along with mercury, substantially enhanced the toxic effects of mercury.

One weblink to him is: http://www.altcorp.com/founders.htm

taken from this page:

Located on the UK campus in the Advanced Science and Technology Commercialization Center, known as ASTeCC, ALT develops, manufactures and markets nucleotide photoaffinity probes—radioactive compounds used in research and diagnosis of disease. When these photoprobes are exposed to ultraviolet light, they bind to the active site of the protein, allowing it to be permanently tagged for identification. ALT uses photoprobes to diagnose periodontal disease and test toxicity levels before and after tooth extraction, and is selling this technology to a worldwide market.

And just recently, German scientists at the University of Göttingen confirmed findings that Haley published in 1992 in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that proposed a diagnostic test for Alzheimer's disease. "UK owns a patent on this, and I hope to be able to make the test available as an aid for early Alzheimer's diagnosis," he says.
