Thimerosal in your vaccine?

by admin on September 13, 2010

An Immunisation Awareness Society website reader (call him J) comments:

Are you aware that on the Immunisation Advisory Centre website in New Zealand under Thimerosal safety they have said Ethyl Mercury is safe and does not cause mental retardation and other side affects. I then looked on the Eli Lilly safety data sheet [see link below] for Thimerosal and one of the side effects is mental retardation? Is this not misinformation to the public on a wide scale?

A good question, J.

Perhaps someone can answer this.

[pdf 1999] Eli Lilly Thimerosal data sheet  Effects of Overexposure: Topical allergic dermatitis has been reported. Thimerosal contains mercury. Mercury poisoning may occur and topical hypersensitivity reactions may be seen. Early signs of mercury poisoning in adults are nervous system effects, including narrowing of the visual field and numbness in the extremities. Exposure to mercury in utero and in children may cause mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe motor coordination impairment. Based on animal data, may be irritating to the eyes.
