I never knew when my son, Will, started displaying signs of
social problems and developmental delays that he had been
overdosed 7 times on mercury through his vaccines. What many
Pediatricians were calling a ďsmall amountĒ of mercury was
actually a grand total for Will of 213 mcg or
316,530,973,856,000,000 molecules of mercury.
My son was overdosed on mercury, a powerful neurotoxin, and
then began displaying the exact same symptoms of mercury
poisoning. As a result of these displayed symptoms Will was
given the diagnosis of Aspergerís Syndrome/high functioning
autism, Pervasive developmental delay, ADHD, speech delay, fine
and gross motor skill delays, double vision and auditory
Mercury poisoning was never considered by any of the
professionals diagnosing my son, as they had no idea Will had
been overdosed on mercury. My once typically developing son
was slowly succumbing to a powerful neurotoxin, as his body was
unable to excrete mercury.
I never knew when I provided my signature for my son to
receive all of his vaccines I was agreeing to never sue his
Pediatrician nor the maker of the vaccines if he was injured. I
never knew that a component of Willís vaccines was Thimerosal, a
mercury based compound, which had NEVER RECEIVED ADEQUATE FDA
safety testing. My husband and I have been left to pay out of
our own pockets for medical help to remove the mercury and help
heal my sonís body.
I wish so very much for our family and Will I could go back
in time. I think the hugest mistake, I an educated person made,
was to trust my childís pediatrician. I ask myself all the time
why I trusted someone I never really knew.
Parents should trust themselves enough to research and ask
questions, hard questions, and not take everything their
pediatrician has to say as the gospel. Pediatricians are not
experts in every area of medicine. Pediatricians are not
toxicologist and should not go around telling parents injecting
mercury into children will cause no harm. There is and will
never be any valid research to show that any level of injected
mercury will cause no harm to an infant with a developing brain
or a fetus.
I co-founded Moms Against Mercury to not only help raise
awareness of what happened to my son, but what is sadly still
occurring to children today. I urge all parents of children who
are diagnosed with any sort of neurodevolopmental delay such as
Autism, Aspergerís Syndrome, ADHD, speech delay, ADD, auditory
processing problems to really get educated on this issue.
I also urge parents who are going to vaccinate their children
to look at package inserts for the word THIMEROSAL . Many
parents have reported to me their childís pediatrician told them
vaccines do not contain Thimerosal anymore, but when they asked
to see the package insert indeed Thimerosal was listed as an
ingredient. EVEN A TRACE AMOUNT WILL DAMAGE SOME CHILDREN
according to experts who have studied the toxicity of
Thimerosal, the mercury based preservative in vaccines. Through
research, which took place after we overdosed a generation of
children on mercury, did we learn certain children could not
excrete the mercury injected into them.
I would further urge parents to also find out the aluminum
levels in their childís vaccines to see if the level is safe.
I have also learned through talking to many pediatricians
they know VERY little about mercury toxicity and really do not
want to discuss this issue with parents. First and foremost
parents need to understand this is a very political issue which
involves the powerful pharmaceutical industry along with the
CDC, FDA, and members of Congress. The CDC through their own
studies have shown a child is much more likely to develop a
neurodevelopmental delay such as Autism, ADHD, Speech Delay if
given mercury containing vaccines (Thimerosal), but then marked
their own research as confidential and not to release. They
later altered their own data to show no link between mercury
containing vaccines and these neurological disorders.
It is your child, your right, so take action and keep asking
questions. Take it from a mother who knows first hand you will
be left to deal with the outcome. Not your doctor. Please
contact us if you have questions.
