Personally, I have whatever vaccines are recommended. The risks of the diseases that the vaccines protect me from are proven and significant. The risks of the mercury in the vaccines are unproven but the evidence I have looked at leads me to conclude that the diseases are a significantly greater risk than the vaccines.
But that doesn't mean that using an extremely toxic substance as a preservative in vaccines or as the main material in fillings in teeth is definitely safe.
[quote">Brain concentrations of inorganic mercury were approximately twice as high in the thimerosal group compared to the methylmercury group. Inorganic mercury remains in the brain much longer than organic mercury, with an estimated half-life of more than a year. Itâ€™s not currently known whether inorganic mercury presents any risk to the developing brain.
Given these findings, the researchers caution that risk assessments for thimerosal based on studies using blood mercury measurements may not be valid, depending on the design of the study. Further, the observed differences in distribution and breakdown of mercury compounds between exposed groups indicate that methylmercury is not a suitable mo
