In June 1999, the Food and Drug Administration discovered that Ã¬Infants who receive thimerosal containing vaccine at several visits may be exposed to more mercury than recommended by Federal guidelines for total mercury exposure.Ã® Thimerosal, a preservative used in some vaccines to prevent contamination, is 49.6% mercury by weight. Infants who are being vaccinated using multi-dose vials with thimerosal can receive 62.5 micrograms of mercury per visit. For an average sized child this represents an exposure approximately 100 times the 0.1 micrograms per kilogram of daily exposure considered safe by the Environmental Protection Agency. The manufactures safety data sheet for thimerosal states, Ã¬Highly toxicÃ–Danger of cumulative effectsÃ–Avoid prolonged or repeated exposureÃ– and the Chemical, physical, and toxicological properties have not been thoroughly investigated.Ã®
Rep. Dave Weldon (R-Fla.) wrote:In January 2004, the nationÃs pediatricians received an autism ALARM [an acronym for an American Academy of Pediatrics communication program] stating autism-spectrum disorders (ASD) were affecting 1 in 166 children (90 percent of them are boys).
This far exceeds the 1 in 3,000 rate of the early 1980s. Last year, California added 3,074 autistic children to its rolls. Every state has seen a dramatic increase.
Parental concerns regarding vaccine safety are not totally without merit. For years, children in America received the diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus shot at 2, 4 and 6 months of age. This shot contained a mercury-containing preservative called thimerosal. Then in the late 1980s and early 1990s, two additional mercury-containing injections were added to the schedule.
Apparently, no one at the National Immunization Program (NIP) within CDC did the calculations regarding the cumulative mercury exposure. The net effect of this was that, in the 1990s, babies in America were exposed to mercury by injection at levels not considered safe by the Environmental Protection Agency for oral consumption by adults. Children, with their rapidly developing nervous systems, are considered much more vulnerable to mercuryÃs toxic effects.
