Thimerosal is a controversial mercury-based preservative that’s used in vaccines, most notably the flu vaccine. Its use spawned lots of criticism causing many concerned people to doubt its safety. The CDC tells us it’s safe, but they don’t give us much proof to back that statement. Nevertheless, if you talk to a pro-vaccine person you’re likely to hear them throwing around terms like “science” and “science-based medicine.” Ironically, even they are unaware of the lack of scientific date to support the safety of thimerosal, especially when given to pregnant mothers and young children.
Thimerosal Has Not Been Proven Safe
Mercury in vaccines has been controversial for some time. Many people think they took the mercury out of all the vaccines but they didn’t. While they did remove mercury from most of the childhood vaccines, mercury is still found in most of the flu shots given, which is bar far the best-selling vaccine. Since they recommend it to pregnant mothers, you’d think there would be plenty of scientific research clearly showing it to be safe to do so. Nothing could be farther from the truth!
It’s shocking to find out how little research they’ve done on the toxicology of thimerosal in humans. Thimerosal is a preservative that’s about 50% mercury. Mercury is a well known neurotoxin. The mercury you’ll get from vaccines is ethylmercury, which they say ethylmercury is “broken down by the body differently and clears out of the blood more quickly.”
What they don’t say is that it’s safer, or less toxic. How much of it goes to the brain? That’s the real question. Why don’t they tell us it doesn’t go to the brain? Or that it doesn’t harm the body whatsoever? If it’s injected it can go straight through your blood into your brain, passing the blood brain barrier. They’re not studying the effects on the body and that’s what matters most. Not how quickly it clears out of the blood.
They say the adjuvants are safe. For example, they say the ethylmercury in the thimerosal preservative found in the flu shot is excreted out of the body faster than the methylmercury found in the environment, such as in fish. It is well established that methylmercury is very toxic. Ethylmercury, on the other hand, hasn’t been studied nearly as much.
While the FDA admits they’re “lacking definitive data” on the comparative toxicology between the two different types of mercury, the FDA considers them equivalent in its risk evaluation. If methylmercury well known to be very toxic, and the FDA considers the risks of the two kinds of mercury to be equivalent, why are they injecting ethylmercury into people?

Though they don’t have definitive scientific studies comparing the toxicity between the two types of mercury, they’re going to assume they’re the same. The article goes on to mention one study that suggests the ethylmercury is excreted faster than they’d expect methylmercury to be excreted. They don’t say that it is excreted faster, or that it’s excreted without affecting the brain. They only say it was excreted faster than they’d expect methylmercury to be excreted. That means they didn’t test it and compare it the two. They’re just guessing. And this guesswork has lead thousands of people to assume ample research has been done in this field, though it has not.
The Flu Shot Is Neither Safe Nor Effective
The Cochrane Group has studied the flu vaccine thoroughly and found it has virtually no benefit. On the other hand, you’re taking a risk by letting them inject you with it. It hasn’t been adequately tested for safety on pregnant mothers either. It’s easy to verify this because all the different flu vaccines are either in the Pregnancy Category B or C. In order to belong to the Pregnancy Category A they would have to have adequate safety studies on humans. But they don’t.
In the past, pregnant mothers weren’t given flu shots. Recently things have changed. The CDC is far more aggressive with their schedule, giving more vaccines than ever before and at younger ages. Suspiciously, the increase in autism and other disorders occurred during the same time period we saw the increase in vaccines recommended in the schedule. On top of that, the increase in vaccines in the recommended schedule happened right after vaccine manufacturers were given immunity from lawsuits! So once vaccine manufacturers had no financial inventive to ensure the safety of their vaccines, the recommended number of vaccines given increased dramatically and at the same time we started to see children having neurological problems at an exponential rate. Keep in mind, the cumulative effects of all the vaccines in the current schedule has NEVER BEEN TESTED!

New Study Suggests Thimerosal Is NOT Cleared From The Body Without Harm

Watch Vaxxed and Trace Amounts!
There are lots of great documentaries showing the dark side of vaccination. Two notable ones are Vaxxed and Trace Amounts. Vaxxed is a great documentary that exposes the true story of CDC fraud. It tells the story of a CDC scientist admitting to covering up the link between vaccines and autism. It’s a must-see because this story needs to be known!
While Vaxxed focuses on the MMR vaccine, Trace Amounts focuses on the thimerosal in vaccines. Trace Amounts is another great film that everyone should see.
Spread the Truth About Thimerosal
Very few people know there’s almost no research showing the ethylmercury is safer to inject than methylmercury. Yet millions of trusting people allow themselves to be guinea pigs for the pharmaceutical industry. Become knowledgeable on the subject so you can make an informed opinion, since the medical industry is uninformed and can’t inform you. Read this document from the Congressional record about mercury in vaccines. Watch the documentaries mentioned above. Please share this post to spread the message.
