  • vaccines posed
  • Citing medical and scientific consensus that thiomersal in vaccines posed no safety issues, but that eliminating the preservative in multi-dose vaccines, primarily used in developing countries, will lead to high cost and a requirement for refrigeration which the developing countries can ill afford, the UN's final decision is to exclude thiomersal from the treaty. (wikipedia.org)
  • toxic
  • Thiomersal is, in fact, so toxic that according to Professor Boyd Haley, no study can ever be designed to prove it safe. (laleva.org)
  • Thiomersal is very toxic by inhalation, ingestion, and in contact with skin (EC hazard symbol T+), with a danger of cumulative effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • disorders
  • However, a growing number of physicians, scientists and parents maintain that thimerosal has played, and continues to play a large role in contributing to the emergence of multiple chronic illnesses in children and adults, including the neurological spectrum disorders. (nvic.org)
  • Drugs
  • After the FDA Modernization Act of 1997 mandated a review and risk assessment of all mercury-containing food and drugs, vaccine manufacturers responded to FDA requests made in December 1998 and April 1999 to provide detailed information about the thiomersal content of their preparations. (wikipedia.org)
  • By 1938, Lilly's assistant director of research listed thiomersal as one of the five most important drugs ever developed by the company. (wikipedia.org)
  • preparations
  • Thiomersal was introduced as a preservative in the 1930s to prevent the growth of infectious organisms such as bacteria and fungi, and has been in use in vaccines and other products such as immunoglobulin preparations and ophthalmic and nasal solutions. (wikipedia.org)
  • children
  • In 2008, children are still being injected with thimerosal-containing vaccines, and old stocks of thimerosal-containing vaccines manufactured by 1999 continued to be administered to children up to 2003. (nvic.org)
  • When US politicians raised the issue in Congress, an inquiry was set in motion that revealed vaccinated children received 187.5 μg of this compound by six months and 237 μg by two years of age, clearly exceeding safe limits by a very wide margin. (laleva.org)
  • A 2007 New England Journal of Medicine study found no relationship between early and increasing exposure in children to thimerosal-containing vaccines and neuropsychological deficits in children. (southbendtribune.com)
  • safety
  • The key issue is whether thimerosal, in the amount given with the vaccine, does or does not constitute a safety hazard," the memo said. (laleva.org)
  • House committee pointed out, the FDA has never required industry to conduct extensive safety studies on thimerosal. (organicconsumers.org)
  • Perhaps the reason that the drug companies want thimerosal-containing vaccines to be used up rather than destroyed has more to do with potential legal liability than it does with safety. (organicconsumers.org)
  • There was a wide range of opinions on the urgency and significance of the safety of thiomersal, with some toxicologists suggesting there was no clear evidence that thiomersal was harmful and other participants like Neal Halsey, director of the Institute of Vaccine Safety at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, strongly advocating removal of thiomersal from vaccines due to possible safety risks.

  • vaccine
  • Instead it would have been proper for her to inform the nation that "study after study of spurious and flawed research that would likely never pass a graduate school examination, scientist after scientist affiliated or with financial ties to the vaccine industry now dominating our academies and health agencies, have determined that there really is no safety risk with thimerosal.
