In June 2000, a joint statement on thimerosal* in vaccines was prepared by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Public Health Service (PHS) in response to 1) the progress in achieving the national goal declared in July 1999 to remove thimerosal from vaccines in the recommended childhood vaccination schedule, and 2) results of recent studies that examined potential associations between exposure to mercury in thimerosal-containing vaccines and health effects. In this statement, AAFP, AAP, ACIP, and PHS recommend continuation of the current policy of moving rapidly to vaccines that are free of thimerosal as a preservative. Until adequate supplies are available, use of vaccines that contain thimerosal as a preservative is acceptable. A joint statement issued by AAP and PHS in July 1999 and agreed to by the AAFP later in 1999 established the goal of removing thimerosal as soon as ...
There is a worldwide increasing concern over the neurological risks of thimerosal (ethylmercury thiosalicylate) which is an organic mercury compound that is commonly used as an antimicrobial preservative. In this study, we show that thimerosal, at nanomolar concentrations, induces neuronal cell death through the mitochondrial pathway. Thimerosal, in a concentration- and time-dependent manner, decreased cell viability as assessed by calcein-ethidium staining and caused apoptosis detected by Hoechst 33258 dye. Thimerosal-induced apoptosis was associated with depolarization of mitochondrial membrane, generation of reactive oxygen species, and release of cytochrome c and apoptosis-inducing factor (AIF) from mitochondria to cytosol. Although thimerosal did not affect cellular expression of Bax at the protein level, we observed translocation of Bax from cytosol to mitochondria. Finally, caspase-9 and caspase-3 were activated in the absence of caspase-8 activation. Our data suggest that thimerosal ...
Those studies link thimerosal to a vast inventory of grim neurological disorders now epidemic in children, including ADD, ADHD, speech delay, tics, ASD, and autism. Other studies demonstrate Thimerosals causation to asthma and a tenfold increase in Alzheimers in adults exposed to Thimerosal-laced flu shots. During three years of research, we were not able to find a single credible study in the open public health literature that shows thimerosal to be safe. These impacts are no surprise. Mercury is a potent brain poison hundreds of times more toxic than lead. Science shows that the ethyl mercury in thimerosal is fifty times as toxic to brain cells and twice as persistent in the brain as the heavily regulated methylmercury in fish. Thimerosal is so toxic that when a doctor carelessly shatters a multidose flu vial, state laws require evacuation of the building and clean-up by trained hazmat crews wearing protective boots, gloves, and respirators. Common sense should tell us that its not a good ...
Interestingly, despite concluding that thimerosal is not a toxin, a closer look at the summarys fine print confirms that the CDC scientists did confirm a dangerous link between thimerosal and neurodevelopmental problems. The summary states regarding a study published in the respected New England Journal of Medicine:. This study measured neurodevelopmental disorders in children. The study found only a few statistically significant associations between exposure from thimerosal and neuropsychological functioning. [Emphasis added]. So, not no associations, but significant associations between thimerosal exposure and problems with neuropsychological functioning.. The Columbia University Department of Psychology provides more information about testing this type of functioning in children:. A neuropsychological evaluation, also called neuropsychological testing, is an in-depth assessment of skills and abilities linked to brain function. The evaluation measures such areas as attention, problem ...
Environmental exposure to mercurials continues to be a public health issue due to their deleterious effects on immune, renal and neurological function. Recently the safety of thimerosal, an ethyl mercury-containing preservative used in vaccines, has been questioned due to exposure of infants during immunization. Mercurials have been reported to cause apoptosis in cultured neurons; however, the signaling pathways resulting in cell death have not been well characterized. Therefore, the objective of this study was to identify the mode of cell death in an in vitro model of thimerosal-induced neurotoxicity, and more specifically, to elucidate signaling pathways which might serve as pharmacological targets. Within 2 h of thimerosal exposure (5 microM) to the human neuroblastoma cell line, SK-N-SH, morphological changes, including membrane alterations and cell shrinkage, were observed. Cell viability, assessed by measurement of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity in the medium, as well as the ...
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Modernization Act of 1997 called for FDA to review and assess the risk of all mercury-containing food and drugs. In line with this review, U.S. vaccine manufacturers responded to a December 1998 and April 1999 FDA request to provide more detailed information about the thimerosal content of their preparations that include this compound as a preservative. Thimerosal has been used as an additive to biologics and vaccines since the 1930s because it is very effective in killing bacteria used in several vaccines and in preventing bacterial contamination, particularly in opened multidose containers. Some but not all of the vaccines recommended routinely for children in the United States contain thimerosal.. There is a significant safety margin incorporated into all the acceptable mercury exposure limits. Furthermore, there are no data or evidence of any harm caused by the level of exposure that some children may have encountered in following the existing ...
IP(3)R (IP(3) [inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate] receptors) and ryanodine receptors are the most widely expressed intracellular Ca(2+) channels and both are regulated by thiol reagents. In DT40 cells stably expressing single subtypes of mammalian IP(3)R, low concentrations of thimerosal (also known as thiomersal), which oxidizes thiols to form a thiomercurylethyl complex, increased the sensitivity of IP(3)-evoked Ca(2+) release via IP(3)R1 and IP(3)R2, but inhibited IP(3)R3. Activation of IP(3)R is initiated by IP(3) binding to the IBC (IP(3)-binding core; residues 224-604) and proceeds via re-arrangement of an interface between the IBC and SD (suppressor domain; residues 1-223). Thimerosal (100 μM) stimulated IP(3) binding to the isolated NT (N-terminal; residues 1-604) of IP(3)R1 and IP(3)R2, but not to that of IP(3)R3. Binding of a competitive antagonist (heparin) or partial agonist (dimeric-IP(3)) to NT1 was unaffected by thiomersal, suggesting that the effect of thimerosal is specifically related to
Thimerosal, which is approximately 50% mercury by weight is a preservative widely used in vaccines since the 1930s. It meets the requirements for a preservative as set forth by Pharmacopeia challenge test and has been shown to be effective against a broad spectrum of pathogens. In July 1999, the Public Health Service agencies and vaccine manufacturers agreed that thimerosal should be reduced or eliminated in vaccines as a precautionary measure but, due to the lack of appropriate alternative, it is still extensively used in multiple dose formulations of vaccines such as hepatitis-B in developing countries. In this study the effect of the removal of thimerosal in two formulations of hepatitis B vaccines containing either aluminum hydroxide or aluminum phosphate were evaluated in Balb/c mice. These formulations were administered interperitoneally and the titer of antibody was determined by ELISA technique after 28 days. The geometric mean of antibody titer (GMT), seroconversion and seroprotection
Objective. After concerns about the possible toxicity of thimerosal-containing vaccines in the United States, this study was designed to investigate whether there is a relationship between the amount of thimerosal that an infant receives via diphtheria-tetanus-whole-cell pertussis (DTP) or diphtheria-tetanus (DT) vaccination at a young age and subsequent neurodevelopmental disorders.. Methods. A retrospective cohort study was performed using 109 863 children who were born from 1988 to 1997 and were registered in general practices in the United Kingdom that contributed to a research database. The disorders investigated were general developmental disorders, language or speech delay, tics, attention-deficit disorder, autism, unspecified developmental delays, behavior problems, encopresis, and enuresis. Exposure was defined according to the number of DTP/DT doses received by 3 and 4 months of age and also the cumulative age-specific DTP/DT exposure by 6 months. Each DTP/DT dose of vaccine contains ...
IDENTIFICATION AND USE: Thiomersal (INN), or thimerosal (USP), is an organomercury compound. This compound is a well-established antiseptic and antifungal agent.. The pharmaceutical corporation Eli Lilly and Company gave thiomersal the trade name Merthiolate. It has been used as a preservative in vaccines, immunoglobulin preparations, skin test antigens, antivenins, ophthalmic and nasal products, and tattoo inks.. ANIMAL EXPOSURE/TOXICITY: researchers assigned 41 newborn monkeys to one of three exposure groups. Seventeen of the monkeys were injected with vaccines spiked with thimerosal for a total mercury dose of 20 micrograms per kilogram (μg/kg) at ages 0, 7, 14, and 21 days, mimicking the typical schedule of vaccines for human infants. At the same ages, another 17 monkeys received 20 μg/kg methylmercury by stomach tube to mimic typical methylmercury exposure. A third group of 7 monkeys served as unexposed controls.. The researchers drew blood from all monkeys prior to any exposure and at ...
Thimerosal, a mercury-containing organic compound which is approximately 50% mercury by weight, has been one of the most widely used preservatives in vaccines. Thimerosal has been widely used as a preservative in a number of biological and drug products, including many vaccines, to help prevent potentially life threatening contamination with harmful microbes. However, Thimerosal has been removed from or reduced to trace amounts in all vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years of age and younger, with the exception of inactivated influenza vaccine, a preservative-free version of the inactivated influenza vaccine (contains trace amounts of thimerosal) is available in limited supply. Some vaccines such as Td, which is indicated for older children (≥ 7 years of age) and adults, are also now available in formulations that are free of thimerosal or contain only trace amounts. Vaccines with trace amounts of thimerosal contain 1 microgram or less of mercury per dose. ...
Thimerosal is an ethyl mercury-containing compound used mainly in vaccines as a bactericide. Although the kidney is a key target for mercury toxicity, thimerosal nephrotoxicity has not received the same attention as other mercury species. The aim of this study was to determine the potential cytotoxi …
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurological disorder in which a significant number of the children experience a developmental regression characterized by a loss of previously acquired skills and abilities. Typically reported are losses of verbal, nonverbal, and social abilities. Several recent studies suggest that children diagnosed with an ASD have abnormal sulfation chemistry, limited thiol availability, and decreased glutathione (GSH) reserve capacity, resulting in a compromised oxidation/reduction (redox) and detoxification capacity. Research indicates that the availability of thiols, particularly GSH, can influence the effects of thimerosal (TM) and other mercury (Hg) compounds. TM is an organomercurial compound (49.55% Hg by weight) that has been, and continues to be, used as a preservative in many childhood vaccines, particularly in developing countries. Thiol-modulating mechanisms affecting the cytotoxicity of TM have been identified. Importantly, the emergence of ASD symptoms post-6 months
In its statement, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) endorsed calls from a World Health Organization (WHO) committee that the preservative, thimerosal, should not be considered a hazardous source of mercury that could be banned by the United Nations.. The AAP in 1999 asked for its removal from vaccines in the United States because of a concern that youngsters receiving multiple shots containing thimerosal might get too much mercury - and develop autism or other neurodevelopmental problems, despite the lack of hard evidence at the time.. Genevra Pittman reports for Reuters December 18, 2012. [2]. ...

One of the conundrums of autism is why there is an approximate ratio of four boys to every girl who gets this disease. Dr. Lovell therefore tested the possibility that this could be hormone related. The latest results were quite marked in their effects. Neurons that were pre-incubated with estrogen demonstrated substantial protection against thimerosal-induced neuron death. In contrast, the addition of testosterone caused a very large increase in thimerosal-induced neuron death. A low nanomolar level of thimerosal that gave less than 5 percent neuron death in three hours could be increased to 100 percent cell death by the addition of one micromolar level of testosterone. Testosterone alone at this level also showed less than 5 percent cell death. The opposing effects of estrogen and testosterone may explain the gender-based four-to-one ratio. Dr. Boyd E. ...
CHICAGO, Jan. 7, 2008 Autism cases continued to increase in California after the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal was eliminated from most childhood v
Public perception of the safety and efficacy of childhood vaccines has a direct impact on immunization rates. The current debate linking the use of thimerosal in vaccines to autism and other developmental disorders has led many families to question whether the potential risks associated with early childhood immunizations may outweigh the benefits. Thimerosal is an effective preservative that has been used in the manufacturing of vaccines since the 1930s, and consists of 49.6% mercury by weight and breaks down in the body to ethyl-mercury and thiosalicylate. Recent reports have indicated that some infants can receive ethylmercury (in the form of thimerosal) at or above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for methylmercury exposure, depending on the exact vaccinations, schedule, and size of the infant calculated that children receive 187.5 μg of ethylmercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines given over the first 14 weeks of life. According to the authors, this amount ...
Seven states have adopted the anti-mercury bills - California being one of the first. Californias law, passed in 2004 and to take effect July 1, will prohibit shots with more than a trace of thimerosal for pregnant women and children younger than 3. In recent weeks, similar bills have been defeated in at least five states. The push for legislation comes long after the uproar over continued use of thimerosal, a mercury-based antibacterial agent, appeared to subside in 1999, when manufacturers began phasing it out of routine pediatric vaccines. But the controversy flared anew when flu shots containing thimerosal were added to the childhood immunization schedule in 2004 and the CDC refused to recommend thimerosal-free shots for infants and pregnant women. Angered by the CDCs refusal - and fearing a backslide into more thimerosal use - state lawmakers and anti-mercury advocates began pushing for outright thimerosal bans. The legislation faces opposition from groups such as the American Academy of ...
In the tweet, no distinction is made between vaccines containing larger amounts of thimerosal and those containing only trace amounts. Of the 15 vaccines listed that have some thimerosal in them, 7 (or only 16% of those listed) have only a trace (i.e., less than 1 µg per dose). Trace amounts exist because some component used in the production of the vaccine contained thimerosal. Once the vaccine has been made, it is processed to remove the thimerosal, which gets almost all of it out, though because nothing in life is ever perfect, tiny amounts remain. The resulting vaccine has so little thimerosal in it that it would not cause problems, even if there were significant adverse effects from the amounts found in some pre-2001 vaccines (which, as Ive already pointed out, was not the case). In other words, theyre trying to pad their numbers in an effort to make things seem scarier than they are. Misinformation #2 ...

The legal standard set by this system is therefore a much lower bar than the demands of medical validity, which would require a much greater magnitude of evidence to draw the conclusion that vaccines were in any way responsible for an injury.. Regardless, the case has brought attention to the nearly 5,000 other families that lawyers have chosen in an effort to seek this compensation from the government, claiming that the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal in vaccines brought about autism and other developmental disorders in their children. Since 2001, the ingredient has been absent from most vaccines, save for certain influenza shots.. Past studies in Denmark, and more recently California, have suggested that thimerosal was not to blame, as reported cases of autism have continued to increase after the removal of thimerosal from most vaccines. Boyd Haley, a chemist at the University of Kentucky and vocal proponent of a vaccine-autism link, believes these studies are flawed. And he said ...
The organic mercury compound ethylmercurithiosalicylate (thimerosal), an antiseptic and a preservative, has recently raised public health concern due to its presence in vaccines globally. Thimerosal dissociates in the body to thiosalicylate and ethyl mercury (EtHg), which is partly converted to inorganic mercuric mercury (Hg2+). The immunosuppressive, immunostimulatory, and de novo autoimmunogen effect of thimerosal in mice, as well as the accelerating/aggravating effect on spontaneous systemic autoimmunity including dose-response aspects were the subject of this thesis.. Thimerosal perorally (590 μg Hg/kg body weight (bw)/day) to genetically susceptible (H-2s) mice caused immunosuppression during the first week with reduction of the total number of splenocytes, T- and B-cells. The suppression lasted 2 weeks for CD4+ cells, but was superseded by a strong immunostimulation/proliferation including T- as well as B-cells, and polyclonal B-cell activation (PBA). Antinuclear antibodies targeting the ...

Dr. Ferguson responded: Myth. Thimerosal is a preservative that has been used for decades without ANY documented human toxicity. It was removed from childhood vaccines after the EPA selected a life exposure level number without any scientific basis. It remains in some multidose flu vaccine.

Propaganda studies have suggested that children of mothers who had two or more instances of flu had a doubled-risk of being diagnosed with autism prior to the age of 3; as well as simply having a fever. Also attributed to the development of autism in children were the uses of a pharmaceutical grade anti-biotic during pregnancy.. This study gives governmental agencies like the CDC an excuse to disregard scientific data correlating autism to the use of mercury-based preservatives like Thimerosal to the onset of autism. Other alarmist researchers claim these findings are noteworthy because of the extensive range of mother and children interviewed. The fact that the conclusions are bogus does not register with these so-called experts.. In 1997, a study which proved the link between autism and vaccines was irgnored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and suppressed by the CDC..

The state chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians had opposed the bill on various grounds - warning mainly that it could lead to vaccine shortages.. On Tuesday, the pediatrics group said it had switched to a neutral stance, based on Pavleys acceptance of modest amendments. Tom Riley, a lobbyist for the family physicians group, said Tuesday that it also was reassessing its stand.. The state Department of Finance is on record in opposition to the bill, on grounds it will cost the state extra to purchase thimerosal-free vaccine. According to state health officials, the added cost would be about $40,000 per year.. Closely watched by federal health officials and the vaccine industry, the bill is advancing at a time of mounting concern over environmental exposures to mercury, a potent neurotoxin. It also comes amid scientific debate and legal battles over whether thimerosal in childrens shots has contributed to a sharp rise in reported cases of ...

suggests that infants bodies expel the thimerosal mercury much faster than once thought - thereby leaving little chance for a progressive building up of the toxic metal. This debunks the myth, believed by some parents and some pediatricians, that the gauntlet of thimerosal-containing shots many infants received in the 1990s - when the average number of vaccines kids received increased sharply - had put them at risk for developmental disorders. Thimerosal has been used for decades, but the surge in vaccinations caused fear that possible accumulations of ethyl mercury, the kind in thimerosal, might exceed safe levels - at least, when based on the stringent risk guidelines applied to its better-understood chemical cousin, methyl mercury, which is associated with eating fish, said Michael Pichichero, M.D., professor of Microbiology/Immunology, Pediatrics and Medicine at the University of Rochester and the studys main author. But scientists are learning that the two mercury species actually ...
I was asked to write a paper on some of the newer mechanisms of vaccine damage to the nervous system, but in the interim I came across an incredible document that should blow the lid off the cover-up being engineered by the pharmaceutical companies in conjunction with powerful governmental agencies.. It all started when a friend of mind sent me a copy of a letter from Congressman David Weldon, M.D. to the director of the CDC, Dr Julie L. Gerberding, in which he alludes to a study by a Doctor Thomas Verstraeten, then representing the CDC, on the connection between infant exposure to thimerosal-containing vaccines and neurodevelopmental injury. In this shocking letter Congressman Weldon refers to Dr. Verstraetens study which looked at the data from the Vaccine Safety Datalink and found a significant correlation between thimerosal exposure via vaccines and several neurodevelopmental disorders including tics, speech and language delays, and possibly to ADD.. Congressman Weldon questions the CDC ...
Petitioners propose effects from mercury … that do not resemble mercurys known effects on the brain, either behaviorally or at the cellular level. To prevail, they must show that the exquisitely small amounts of mercury in TCVs [thimerosal-containing vaccines] that reach the brain can produce devastating effects that far larger amounts experienced prenatally or postnatally from other sources do not. … In an effort to render irrelevant the numerous epidemiological studies of ASD [autism spectrum disorder] and TCVs that show no connection between the two, they contend that their children have a form of ASD involving regression that differs from all other forms biologically and behaviorally. World-class experts in the field testified that the distinctions they drew between forms of ASD were artificial, and that they had never heard of the clearly regressive form of autism about which petitioners epidemiologist testified. Finally, the causal mechanism petitioners proposed would produce, not ...
CIDRAP News) Almost 5 years ago, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the US Public Health Service joined in calling for removal of the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal from vaccines.

Sometimes I think this issue is what is going to start the next civil war. Seriously. I dont tell parents what to do, but I do tell them what happened to my child, and I tell them to get educated, to do their own research, and to make a truly informed decision. The horror of what happened to my son is something that should give all parents pause. I knew about thimerosal, but only in the Prevnar vaccine. I refused any more of these vaccines and adamantly stated my son was not to get thimerosal-containing vaccines. Then I got deliberately lied to about the ingredients, and he was administered four vaccines (they also said multiple vaccines was perfectly safe), three of them contained thimerosal. My son began to change immediately. He immediately lost speech and would not recover some functional speech for almost three years other than one syllable utterances and then some one syllable words.So many things changed. His health went to hell in a hand basket.. I would never risk my son again, but I ...
Thimerosal, a mercury containing preservative which was widely used but later removed from many pharmaceutical products, lingers on in some vaccines including ones injected into some of the most vulnerable recipients - pregnant women, babies, children and seniors. As of 2011, Canadian vaccines which contain thimerosal as a preservative are multi-dose vials of the influenza vaccines, Fluviral® and Vaxigrip®; Tetanus Toxoid vaccine; Recombivax HB® multi-dose vials of hepatitis B vaccine and Menomune® A/C/Y/W-135 multi-dose vials of meningococcal vaccine. Those which contain trace amounts remaining from the manufacturing process are Infanrix™-hexa (the six-valent vaccine given to babies as young as 6 months and children up to 2yrs old), Engerix®-B multi-dose vials of hepatitis B vaccine and Twinrix® hepatitis A/hepatitis B vaccine.. A 2007 statement on thimerosal by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) informs us that a considerable amount is known about methylmercury, the form of ...
5.There was no safety level established for direct injection of mercury into the bloodstream, there has never been any type of safety level established for any exposure to the type of mercury thimerosal is, ethylmercury. The FDA and CDC had to rely on the safety levels established by the EPA for non injected mercury and not ethylmercury! The CDC and FDA checked all of the established safety levels for non injected mercury exposure and reported during a Congressional Investigation that thimerosal in vaccines caused infants to exceed safety levels established by all four government agencies including their own. Those agencies are the EPA, World Health Organization (WHO), FDA, and ATSDR which is the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. To date the FDA and CDC still claim that thimerosal in vaccines only exceeded the EPA safety limits. Utilizing Merck Pharmaceuticals Minimum Risk levels against the EPA safe limits- a child was at risk of mercury overdose at each vaccination point if ...
Science and medical experts say that unless the government forces the pharmaceutical industry to pay for the damage caused by mercury-laced vaccines, in the not too distant future, Americans will experience the worst welfare disaster in the history of this country.. No doubt with that in mind, eight members of Congress are calling for a new investigation into the link between the autism epidemic and the mercury-based preservative thimerosal that children received in vaccines during the 1990s, and that some children received as late as 2003.. After six years of hearings and testimony from medical experts, scientists, special education teachers, school nurses, and parents of autistic children, several lawmakers say they are convinced that a review of the vaccine database will show a causal link between autism and thimerosal.. Throughout the 1990s, when thimerosal was most heavily used, the number of children diagnosed with autism reached epidemic proportions. During this period, the levels of ...

Thimerosal can be a mercury derivative in addition to a really toxic large metallic that attacks every single organ and procedure in the body. Thimerosal is crafted from thiosalicylic acid and also a kind of mercury termed ethyl mercury. When all is alleged and completed, mercury is 49.59% of the weight of thimerosal.

Families claiming that a mercury-based preservative in vaccines triggers autism will challenge mainstream medicine as they take their case to a federal court. Two 10-year-old boys from Portland, Oregon, will serve as test cases that determine whether the children and their families in similar situations should be compensated from a government fund that helps people injured by shots.. Attorneys for the boys will attempt to show the children were developing normally until they were exposed to vaccines with thimerosal.. Thimerosal has been removed in recent years from standard childhood vaccines. Experts say theres no credible evidence that vaccines containing thimerosal caused autism, a developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life.. Overall, nearly 4,900 families have filed claims alleging that vaccines caused autism and other neurological problems in their children.. Courtesy of the Associated Press.. [email protected] ...
Naturally, Natural News lists thimerosal in the flu vaccines. Everyone knows childrens flu vaccines dont have thimerosal just as everyone knows since the removal of thimerosal, autism rates never dropped. Anti vaxxers have to rely on misinfo and outright lies in hopes to make the public believe their conspiracy theories. Anti vaxxers still cant explain why the majority who get vaccines do not have autism, or why the majority doesnt go into entire nervous system of the baby goes into shock. Why autism is 4 to 5 times more likely in boys than girls. And lets not forget that autism rate consists of the majority having mild autism. Aside from that, pertussis outbreaks are yet again killing children in California, taking away a parents right to vaccine choice. Thanks to Wakefield and anti vaxxers, history repeats ...
Autism is a neurological disorder caused by dysfunctional metabolic control over methylation reactions, and thimerosal appears to be a precipitating causative factor in many cases. The methionione cycle and the trans-sulfuration pathway leading to cysteine and glutathione synthesis are abnormal in autism. Genetic polymorphisms, present in only a small subpopulation, represent risk factors for autism. As illustrated in Fig. 11, some of these genetic factors impair detoxification and clearance of heavy metals, including thimerosal, and also impair the capacity for methylation. Delayed clearance of thimerosal further impairs methylation, including both DNA methylation and dopamine-stimulated phospholipid methylation, adversely affecting growth factor-directed development and the capacity for attention, respectively. Autism can be treated, and some of the most effective treatments, such as methylcobalamin, act by improving methylation. This encouraging therapeutic development reinforces the ...
The frequently-repeated assertion at the heart of autism-denial is that research has proved that there is no link between vaccines and autism. Much of the time this refers back to one paper by a Danish group[i] in 2003-a group with a vested interest, working as they did for the state-run vaccine industry. The paper considered children diagnosed with autism between 1971 and 2000; thimerosal was removed from vaccines in Denmark in 1992, and the paper argued that because they found that autism cases continued to rise after that date, thimerosal could not have been a causative factor. But regressive autism typically manifests in the second year of life, but is not diagnosed for some years; 75% of affected children in Denmark are thought to be diagnosed and reported between the ages of 5 and 19 years, so the reporting rate would not be expected to fall significantly in the 8 years from the removal of thimerosal to the end of the study.

Most people probably connect him with thimerosal thanks to his 2005 report for Rolling Stone and Salon.com titled Deadly Immunity, wherein he tells a dark tale of secret conferences, whitewashed data, and ties to prominent Republicans. A focus of his article is a June 2000 conference discussing the thimerosal research of Tom Verstraeten of the Centers for Disease Control. Kennedy claims that though Verstraeten later tweaked his study until the link went away, at the gathering he pretty much blamed thimerosal for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children-damning words if thats anything like what the man said. From what I can tell, though, its not. According to the meeting transcript, Verstraeten actually said, [W]e dont see much of a trend except for a slight, but not significant, increase for the highest exposure. The overall test for trend is statistically not significant. And the researchers in attendance ...
RESULTS: It was determined that there was a close correlation between mercury doses from thimerosal--containing childhood vaccines and the prevalence of autism from the late 1980s through the mid-1990s. In contrast, there was a potential correlation between the number of primary pediatric measles-containing vaccines administered and the prevalence of autism during the 1980s. In addition, it was found that there were statistically significant odds ratios for the development of autism following increasing doses of mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines (birth cohorts: 1985 and 1990-1995) in comparison to a baseline measurement (birth cohort: 1984). The contribution of thimerosal from childhood vaccines (,50% effect) was greater than MMR vaccine on the prevalence of autism observed in this study ...
A new study conducted by a team of collaborative researchers from the non-profit 501(c)3 Institute of Chronic Illnesses, Inc and CoMeD, Inc, as well as researchers from the Simpson University and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas has found a dose-response Relationship between organic mercury exposure from Thimerosal-containing vaccines and neurodevelopmental disorders.
On July 16, 2001 a scientific meeting examining thimerosal-containing vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes was held at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Although no published studies to date have compared the incidence of neurodevelopmental delay in children who received thimerosal-free or thimerosal-containing vaccines, several facts are reassuring that the level of mercury contained in vaccines was not likely to be harmful. Thimerosal contains 49.6% mercury by weight and is metabolized to ethylmercury and thiosalicylate. Ethylmercury is contained in many drugs as well as biologicals. Adults and children who are exposed inadvertently to large quantities of ethylmercury acutely (quantities 1000- to 1 000 000-fold greater than those found in vaccines) can sustain permanent neurologic damage and death.6-11 However, no data exist on the capacity of low-dose, chronic exposure to ethylmercury to harm the developing nervous system. Guidelines for chronic exposure to ethylmercury were extrapolated from guidelines for methylmercury (the most common form of mercury found in the environment) established by the EPA, ATSDR, and FDA.4. Guidelines from the ...
At concentrations higher than the 25 micrograms of ethyl mercury contained in vaccines, it has been shown that methyl mercury accumulates in the brain and blood more and is cleared from the brain slower compared to ethyl mercury providing evidence that it is more neurotoxic (Magos, 1985; Magos 2003). Additionally when chronic low concentration exposure was investigated in an experiment designed to mimic the childhood vaccination schedule, Burbacher (2005) found that levels of organic mercury were lower in the brain in infant monkeys exposed to Thimerosal than those exposed to MeHg. It was also found that brain half clearance times were significantly lower in monkeys exposed to thimerosal compared to those exposed to MeHg.This effect was replicated in a study conducted by Zareba et al (2007) on mice, providing further evidence that at low doses ethyl mercury may be less neurotoxic than methyl mercury. In addition to this, a study conducted by Hornig, Chian and Lipkin (2004) on mice showed that ...
Another study by the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, University of Louisville School of Medicine, Louisville, Kentucky used data from a previous Vaccine Safety Datalink study of thimerosal exposure looking at 42 neuropsychological outcomes and ran it through multivariable regression models which were specifically constructed to assess the impact of timeliness of vaccination (receipt within 30 days of recommended age) on neuropsychological outcomes after adjustment for potential confounders. The authors, Smith and Woods, controlled for cumulative ethylmercury exposure, without providing any explanation - even though ethylmercury would have been associated with receipt of 3 of the 4 vaccines in the analysis (hepatitis B, DPT and Hib). The authors concluded that, timely vaccination during infancy has no adverse effect on neuropsychological outcomes 7 to 10 years later. (link to article - link to reply letters). Further Reading:.

The authors claim that the animals were selected on a semi-random basis to receive either thimerosal-containing Hepatitis B vaccines at birth (TCV or thimerosal-containing vaccine) (n=13), a saline placebo (n=4), or no injection (n=3). We would like to point out that there isnt any accepted term such as semi-random. Selection is either random or non-random and while there are numerous ways to randomise ones selection randomisation is never a sliding-scale. Next, the 3 aforementioned abstracts state that there were 13 treatment animals (TCV) and 3 receiving saline placebo. Since these animals are all undoubtedly from the same group and protocol, that means that either 4 animals (1 saline placebo and 3 no injection) were not used for inclusion on the abstract results or that 4 animals were added for the purposes of this study. This discrepancy, along with their semi-random selection require explanation since they could certainly affect the results and subsequent interpretation ...
On September 23, 2014, an Italian court in Milan award compensation to a boy for vaccine-induced autism. A childhood vaccine against six childhood diseases caused the boys permanent autism and brain damage. While the Italian press has devoted considerable attention to this decision and its public health implications, the U.S. press has been silent. Like the U.S., Italy has a national vaccine injury compensation program to give some financial support to those people who are injured by compulsory and recommended vaccinations. The Italian infant plaintiff received three doses of GlaxoSmithKlines Infanrix Hexa, a hexavalent vaccine administered in the first year of life. These doses occurred from March to October 2006. The vaccine is to protect children from polio, diphtheria, tetanus, hepatitis B, pertussis and Haemophilus influenza type B. In addition to these antigens, however, the vaccine then contained thimerosal, the mercury-containing preservative, aluminum, an adjuvant, as well as other ...

Studies continue to explore the causes of autism, although at this time we do not know what causes ASD. However, we do know that if a family has a child diagnosed with ASD, there is a 10x greater likelihood that future children may also have an ASD. Studies have demonstrated that in families with autism, there are often other developmental concerns (i.e., language delays, learning disorders, anxiety, mood disorders). We also know that certain medical conditions tend to occur more often with ASDs, especially autistic disorder. These conditions include fragile X syndrome, tuberous sclerosis, congenital rubella syndrome, and untreated PKU.. Current scientific evidence does not support a link between the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine or any combination of vaccines and ASD. There is also no scientific proof to support a link between thimerosal (a mercury-containing preservative) and ASD. Regardless, vaccines no longer contain mercury.. About 25% of children diagnosed with ASD will have normal ...

One of the great debates in autism discussions has been between those who believe that mercury based vaccine preservatives cause or contribute to incidents of autism and those who do not subscribe to that theory. The overwhelming consensus from the scientific community has been that there is no evidence to support such a link. Notwithstanding that consensus there are still a large number of parents of autistic children ( I am not one of them ) and one journalist/author (David Kirby) who believe that there is indeed a link. A few of the parents have been very vocal. Some, if internet discussions can be believed, have gone as far as harassing and threatening those who oppose their views. At least those are the allegations advanced by some neurodiversity commentators some of whom are equally as hostile and rude to those who disagree with their views as the extremist few among the mercury-thimerosal advocacy groups. Now, another study by Geier & Geier (2007) apparently suggests that there is a ...
In the 1940s, thimerosal was used in teething powders for infants and resulted in fatal outbreaks of Pinks Disease (severe mercury poisoning) before being removed in the 50s. Since many children today receive vaccines with trace amounts of thimerosal, in addition to vaccines containing adjuvant aluminum compounds, an important 1972 study published in the British Medical Journal noted that mercury increases aluminums oxidation and produces abnormal heat. In recent years, there is growing evidence of mitochondrial oxidation and cellular damage that may be due to this interaction between mercury and aluminum in vaccines. With a child now receiving 31 and more vaccinations during its first 18 months of life, it would seem that this barbaric practice would have been fully investigated by our health officials to account for the epidemic rise in neurological and behavioral disorders, adult diabetes and asthmatic conditions in American children. Instead, our health officials continue to pump out ...

Sorry Orac...but you already lose this arguement. The University of California just released its data on the incidence of autism and have seen a DECREASE for the first time in over a decade as of the first half of 2005. Also, Canada has released its information as of 2005 that their autism cases have leveled off. Further, someone stated that perhaps it was better diagnosing that led to the increase? This has to be someone who does not have experience with autism and autistic children. For one, the University of California confirmed a couple of years ago that the rise in autism is real and not due to diagnosis changes. I will provide links to all. Further, it is true that there are people, adults, who have characteristics of aspergers syndrome such as in the computer fields and college professors, etc. However, these are people whos parents were never alarmed at their development.

The following information will be filed with lawyers throughout the country, the public, the media, and an organizational effort is being made to inform all Canadians of the pure propaganda statements being made by certain members within the Canadian government. It is your job to inform and pass this information on to all Canadians to counter the propaganda. Lawsuits are being prepared at this time. The Pharmaceutical industry in the US has already lost many cases in court, for putting Thimerosal in vaccines. Not only is it not safe, it is a serious neurological toxin. This poison will be in this years H1N1 vaccine, at even possibly higher than safe levels, and members within the Canadian government, are making claims that there are no safety reasons not to take it. Thimerosal is a giant safety concern, and the FDA itself in its own papers admitted over a decade ago it should be phased out. This is just one adjuvant, not even mentioning the Aluminum Hydroxide - leading to female autism, or the ...

A small but groundbreaking study of infants who received vaccines containing a mercury-based preservative has found that the levels of mercury in their blood were well within the federal safety limits. The director of the Institute for Vaccine Safety at Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Neal Halsey, praised the study as much needed and done quite well, although more work needs to be done, he said, especially on underweight babies and long-term follow-up. No scientific study has proved that thimerosal causes any ill effects, but at the urging of federal health officials, vaccine makers began eliminating it in mid-1999. HOW STUDY WAS CONDUCTEDThe Lancet study, led by Dr. Michael Pichichero of the University of Rochester, tested the blood, urine and stool of 33 infants ages 2 months to 6 months, all of them seen by Rochester pediatricians injecting thimerosal- containing vaccines. In their first six months, children typically receive three doses of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, one or two for
The world is full of people willing to take advantage of the desperation of parents of sick children. One prime example of this are the team of father (Dr. Mark) and son (David) Geier, who are peddling their own autism treatment. In short, their hypothesis is that testosterone in the body interacts with mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines, retaining this in the body, which somehow causes autism. Sounds crazy? Not crazy enough apparently to discourage parents from choosing to visit Dr Geiers clinic and getting their children treated with a strong drug, Lupron (also used for chemical castration) to get rid of the testosterone and subsequently making the mercury accessible to chelation. You can read Kathleen Seidels excellent summaries of the Geiers undertakings, their misrepresentation of the science, and their financial interests here. Essentially, the weird testosterone-mercury hypothesis became a money printing machine. Children would come to the clinic, scores of blood tests ...

According to officials in the nations regulatory agencies, the main obstacle to proving or disproving a link between the autism epidemic and the mercury-based preservative thimerosal that was contained in childhood vaccines until a few years ago, and is still in flu vaccines, has been the inability to find a large enough group of people who have never been vaccinated to compare with people who have. In fact, a few months ago, CDC officials claimed that such a study would be nearly impossible. On July 19, 2005, the CDC held a Media Briefing on the topic of vaccines and child health. On the issue of government research on autism, a reporter asked CDC Director Dr Julie Gerberding: are you putting any money into clinical studies rather than epidemiological studies, to verify or disprove the parents claim about a particular channel, a particular mechanism by which a minority of genetically susceptible kids are supposedly damaged? Gerberding replied: To do the study that youre suggesting, looking ...
Menactra lasts eight to ten years, long enough to take even 11 year olds through the high-risk early college years. (The incidence of meningococcal meningitis drops by about half, to about 1 case in 200,000, in adults, so the CDC does not recommend the vaccine for them as well.) It protects against four of the five strains of meningococcal meningitis, which account for 70% of cases in the U.S. Its not made with live virus, so there is no danger of getting the disease from the shot, nor does it contain the preservative thimerosal. The injection costs $80 to $100, but is covered by most insurers. Side effects are minimal. Some people have pain and swelling at the injection site, and a handful have come down with Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), a neurological disorder, after receiving Menactra. People who have been diagnosed with GBS are advised not to get Menactra. ...

And we are told by the CDC that all the science has shown no connection between vaccines and ASD. But what did they actually look at? Did they do actual physiological studies on and as to the effect of vaccines and multiple vaccines on actual human being, and/or lab animals? No, they did not. What did they do and have they done? They did only population studies on one single vaccine, (the MMR vaccine); and population studies on one single vaccine ingredient, (Thimerosal, aka ethyl mercury). No studies were done on any other vaccines, nor other vaccine ingredients, nor were any done on combined multiple and nor repeated vaccine doses. And they tell us that they have done and looked at all the vaccine safety science; and apparently all the science that they feel would and should ever being needed.

There has as well never been done any officially recognized small nor large scale epidemiological study done, ...
The flu vaccine is an addition to the list of communicable diseases for which children in the state already are required to have before they can enter such social settings as day care or preschool, both situations in which contagious diseases are easily spread. This is a public-health policy that is aimed at protecting children and the community at large, Eddy Bresnitz, state epidemiologist and a deputy health commissioner, told the Philadelphia Inquirer.. Some parents, however, have expressed concern and even written letters to the Public Health Council in opposition to the change, mainly over safety concerns. While no scientific studies have found a link between thimerosal-a mercury-containing preservative once used in vaccines-and the triggering of autism in young children, some vaccines still contain trace amounts of the chemical and its enough to alarm parents..

A Lafayette couple, certain that chelation therapy has helped their autistic son, stepped squarely into the controversy surrounding the causes of autism and its treatment Tuesday as they joined 150 other parents in launching an international support group that will aggressively promote the treatment. The Handleys are now among a small minority of parents -- who, believing that the autism was caused by the mercury in thimerosal, a preservative that was routinely used in vaccines until recently -- are treating their children with chelation therapy, a lotion or pill that strips the body of heavy metals. The medical community differs on the cause of autism, a developmental disorder marked by communication problems and restricted or repetitive behavior. Mielke, who has an autistic son, is a member of a group called Defeat Autism Now and attends an international research conference on autism twice a year. In 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Public Health Service said vaccine
Both the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the vaccine manufacturers who still use Thimerosal preservatives have had active campaigns across the US to opposed state legislative efforts like the one that passed in California to remove mercury from vaccines. Although their stated concern is that such laws could create shortages for the vaccine programs, their true interest is to avoid legal liability for the production and distribution of poorly tested, unsafe vaccines. Such vaccines are at the heart of a number of public health epidemics like diabetes, asthma, immune disorders and expecially the explosion in autism ...
Because vaccines given today have less mercury does that mean the children who received vaccines in the 90s did not get mercury poisoning from mercury in vaccines? The vaccine manufacturers did not remove thimerosal to decrease their profits. My sons pediatrician changed his diagnoses to include heavy metal toxicity because he reviewed his high levels mercury beginning with exposure in utero which damaged his methylation process. I am happy to share his 400 + pages of lab work to verify this. I grew up in beef country so I dont eat any fish. Bill you appear to be a caring nurse, but you dont know what you dont know. Since we agree mercury is toxic we should review the EPA and FDA standards for mercury. 2 parts per billion allowed in water supply, 200 ppb is considered toxic waste and must be handle according to laws, a trace amount mercury vaccines has 2,000 ppb and a 25 microgram mercury vaccine has 50,000 ppb. Direct injection is more dangerous than ingestion because our digestive system ...
As I began typing the title of this particular Blog post, I mistakenly typed How to Stop Injecting Aluminum.. Well, it is tantamount to a Freudian slip and likewise it is not far fetched.. Why?. Certain immunizations in the past have contained aluminum.. The flu vaccination has typically delivered a wallop of aluminum among other substances including a little mercury in the form of Thimerosal as a preservative.. Some injections may still contain aluminum.. Certainly injection has been one mode of putting aluminum into the body.. And there was a plan proposed nationally in approximately 1974 to seed the atmosphere with aluminum. Under the guise of putting up a reflective layer to send solar radiation. Into outer space and reduce Global Warming.. And there has been evidence that we are being dusted like crops. From jets spreading white layers of barium and aluminum and only God knows what!. We call those chemtrails in contrast & comparison to contrails.. Then there is aluminum in most ...
Remember Julie Fletcher`s post about the link between autism and mercury? Here `s a study that supports her urge to ?get over it.? Thimerosal is a mercury
Vaccines that contain amercury-based preservative called thimerosal cannot causeautism on their own, a special U.S. court ruled on Friday,dealing one more blow to parents seeking to blame vaccines fortheir childrens illness.
Blood levels of mercury were safe in infants exposed to vaccines containing thimerosal, and mercury half-life was much shorter than expected.
0080] Twenty kilograms of frozen bacterial cell slurry in OMS were thawed at 4° C. (20 kg of pellet mass). The liquid culture suspension from each container was aseptically aspirated into a steam in place 250 liter jacketed process tank (Lee, Model 259LU) with a top mounted mixer (Eastern, Model TME-1/2, EMI Incorporated, Clinton, Conn.) containing 222 liters OMS pH 8.5 containing 0.1 grams thimerosal/liter as preservative. The volume of OMS was determined by dividing the pellet mass (in grams) by 900 and then multiplying the result by 10 to get the homogenizing volume in liters (gram pellet mass/900×10=liters homogenizing volume). The bulk bacterial suspension was chilled to 4° C. with continuous mixing for 18 hours at 200 rpm at which time was disrupted by homogenization. Briefly, the 250 liter tank containing the bacterial suspension was connected to a model 12.51 H Rannie Homogenizer, (APV Systems, Rosemont, Ill.). A second 250 liter jacketed process tank (empty) was connected to the ...
by Mary Budinger - When you buy food or supplements, there is a label that tells you something about what is in there. But normally the person who injects you with a vaccine or flu shot does not hand you the list of ingredients.. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) publishes an updated list of ingredients in all vaccines sold in the United States called the Pink Book. You can see a simplified list at cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/ pinkbook/downloads/appendices/b/excipient-table-2.pdf.. You will need to know, for example, that mercury is called thimerosal. Want to know how much mercury is in a flu shot? Then you have to go to a different web address: cdc.gov/flu/about/qa/vaxsupply.htm. This chart also identifies the ovalbumin content in flu vaccines, meaning if you are allergic to egg protein, this vaccine could provoke an allergic reaction. Vaccines such as influenza, measles, mumps, rubella, rabies and yellow fever are created on egg media.. A 2013 study published in the British Medical Journal ...
We can only hope that all those foreign nations dont pick up on this news story and wonder why it is okay for children who are remaining in Africa, Asia, South America or Eastern Europe to receive unsafe vaccines.. There are, of course, two obvious answers to why these vaccines are unsafe.. 1) Needle re-use.. 2) Mercury content. Due to a lack of refrigeration and a shortage of money, most vaccines in the developed world come in 10 dose vials, preserved with that wonderful, inexpensive toxin, thimerosal.. How could the journalists who put together this lovely, upbeat story miss the huge question of why it is okay for some kids (adopted in to the U.S.) to get safe vaccines and other children (remaining in their home countries) to receive unsafe vaccines? Why dont all of those upbeat stories about vaccine campaigns in developing countries mention the hazards of unsafe immunizations and ask donors to give that little bit extra so childrens lives can be saved for real?. Stories like this ...
When a child has an adverse reaction to vaccines, doctors and pediatricians tell parents to give the child Tylenol, correct? Tylenol can deplete glutathione necessary for detoxification, and especially in regard to the detoxification of substances such as vaccine aluminum adjuvants, and Thimerosal. Multiple vaccines can clearly have a load of and a variety of ingredient toxicity, no matter how much mainstream wants to ignore and or deny it. Fever is actually necessary for the child to recover from pathogen created illness and or immune challenge, even be it vaccine induced. Vaccine contamination known and unknown is as well an issue; and indeed both the CDC and the FDA are aware of it. The issues of vaccine contamination such as has been known in regard to the SV40 contaminant in the late 50s early 60s polio vaccine. Eradication of that type of contamination in regard to even the more modern day vaccine step process of so called purification, has as of yet never resolved such problems, nor the ...
The mechanisms by which the generation and frequency of cytoplasmic Ca2+ oscillations are controlled were investigated in pituitary gonadotrophs. In these cells, two Ca(2+)-mobilizing receptors, the gonadotropin-releasing hormone and endothelin receptors, induce frequency-modulated Ca2+ spiking at the rate of up to 30 min-1. The cytoplasmic oscillator is also activated by discharge of luminal Ca2+ (initiated by ionomycin, thapsigargin, or thimerosal) but not by increased voltage-sensitive Ca2+ influx or treatment with caffeine. The basic difference between these two types of Ca2+ oscillations is related to their requirement for inositol-1,4,5-triphosphate (InsP3). Thapsigargin-, thimerosal-, and ionomycin-induced spiking occurs without the rise in InsP3 production that is essential for the generation of receptor-controlled oscillatory responses. The differential requirement for InsP3 in the two types of Ca2+ spiking is indicated by two lines of evidence. First, agonist-induced Ca2+ spiking of ...
Can children develop autism from vaccines?. There has been no scientific evidence to show that there is a link between vaccinations and the development of autism. Although the cause of autism is poorly understood, both national and international health groups have evaluated that the evidence does not point toward ingredients used in vaccines, such as thimerosal and aluminum, as a cause.. Does everyone receive the same vaccinations?. Not necessarily. People may receive different types of vaccines because of their age or health conditions. Since a childs immune system continues to develop as they get older, they need to receive some immunizations more frequently than adults. Older adults may also receive different doses of vaccines to protect them against illnesses to which they are more susceptible. One example is the flu shot. Although everyone over six months old is recommended to get the flu shot every year, theres a high-dose formulation specifically for adults 65 years and older. Those ...

Then consider the timeline that shows the existence of autism before the tragedy in Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia that where 12 out of 20 children died from bacteria contaminated multi-use bottles of a vaccine. This tragedy occurred in January 1928. Ewa Ssuchareva (Ssucharewa), a Russian researcher first described this condition in 1926 a full two years before the Bundaberg Tragedy and at least four years before the first thimerosal was used in vaccines. Because she was in the newly formed Soviet Russia all her work was not released to the rest of the world until after the collapse of the Soviet Union. So there are a number of things that have contributed to the rise in diagnostics of Autism including the number of people like myself and all my adult children that were never diagnosed until we reached adulthood. If me and at least 10 other individuals that I know personally had been diagnosed when we were between the ages of 2 and 7 (typical ages for Aspergers Syndrome diagnosis) that would ...

Auch die Aufmerksamkeitsstörungen haben explosionsartig zugenommen und eines von sechs Kindern leidet heute unter einer Lernstörung. David Kirby hat nun untersucht, ob als einer der Gründe für diese Störungen des Kindesalters das Thimerosal in Frage kommen könnte, ein Konservierungsmittel in Impfstoffen, das Quecksilber enthält. Kirby berichtet über die Hinhaltetaktik und Maßnahmen zur Verdrängung und Verschleierung ...
