- Children Carry Heavy Burdens of Toxins
"In 1983, before the autism epidemic began, children received 10 vaccines before attending school and the autism incidence was 1 in10,000. Today, they are receiving over 24 vaccines before their first birthday,and 36 by the time they attend school, and the autism rate is now 1 in 150.
Yet the medical “experts” refuse to acknowledge that the mercury in vaccines has anything to do with the dramatic and sudden rise in autism cases.
With an already heavy childhood immunization schedule, loaded as it is with nasty substances like mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde, children are accumulating these toxins at staggering rates. Your child’s health is being terrorized by greedy corporations who have but one agenda--and it isn’t your child’s welfare.
It’s anybody’s guess what the flu shot will do to babies who receive it, year after year. It truly is a guess—an experiment on your child—because no longitudinal studies have been done with babies on the effect of giving annual flu shots starting from six months of age.
We won’t see the majority of the health consequences of this vaccination policy for many years to come, perhaps decades, and by then it may be too late for your children.
Although the CDC recommended that thimerosal be removed from vaccines in 1999, it is still present in many vaccinations today, including the flu shot.
Unfortunately, Mercury Is Still in the Recipe
In spite of strong recommendations from the CDC and others for removal of thimerosal from all vaccines, it continues to be a component of most flu vaccines.
Thimerosal contains close to 50 percent ethyl mercury by weight. Children are particularly sensitive to the mercury since their nervous systems are still rapidly developing, making them more susceptible to the damaging effects.
Mercury is a toxic element that, if taken in high enough doses, can result in long-term immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions. Disorders associated with mercury poisoning include autism, attention deficit disorder, multiple sclerosis, and speech and language deficiencies.
The majority of flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury in the form of thimerosal, which is 50 times more toxic than plain old mercury. The reasons for this are:
-Injected mercury is far more toxic than ingested mercury
-There is no blood-brain barrier in infants
-Mercury accumulates in brain and nerve cells
I -Infants don’t produce bile, which is necessary to excrete mercury
Once mercury is in nerve tissue, it is irreversibly converted to its organic form and becomes tightly bound. It can remain in your child’s brain for years, like a time-release capsule, causing permanent degeneration and death of brain cells.
It has been calculated that, by age 2, American children have received 237 micrograms of mercury from vaccines alone, which far exceeds the current EPA “safe” levels of 0.1 mcg/kg per day. That is one-tenth of a microgram, not one microgram! Now you can understand why your child would have to weigh 550 pounds to receive a flu shot and be within the federal exposure limits. [And this is only for one shot!]
With most children receiving multiple shots at one time on “vaccination days,” they are receiving hefty doses of mercury that far exceed “safe” levels, meaning they can accumulate a heavy toxic load at a very young age.
You might want to check out the easy-to-use mercury calculator from the National Vaccine Information Center, which will tell you just how much mercury your child will be getting from his vaccinations. "

Mercury in Toxic Amounts
This may be a "politically charged" quote, and extreme in some sorts, but I think it's extreme the amount of Mercury that is being put into our children through vaccines...
