candyshroom said: Autism is not the end of the world. I’m tired of people treating it like it was cancer. People with autism live well and I bet if you asked them, most would say they were content with life despite their “awful handicap”.
Autism no biggy says candyshroom girl. At least people can recover from cancer…
Here is a link from a government page (you know the people who have never once committed a smidgeon of fraud) The report was prepared by the staff of the Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness, Committee on Government Re-form. This report is the result of a three-year investigation initiated in the Committee on Government Reform.
Committee did in fact find evidence that thimerosal posed a risk. The possible risk for harm from either low dose chronic or one time high level (bolus dose) exposure to thimerosal is not ‘‘theoretical,’’ but very real and documented in the medical literature.
In 1997, Congress instructed the FDA to evaluate the human exposure to mercury through drugs and foods. Through this Congressionally mandated evaluation, the FDA realized that the amount of ethylmercury infants were exposed to in the first six months of life through their mandatory vaccinations exceeded the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) limit for a closely associated compound methylmercury.
Those are just a few points, the article is very interesting..
