New Study Proves Thimerosal Induces Autism-like Neurotoxicity

Excerpt of abstract of new scientific study proving that the mercurial compound used as vaccine preservative called ‘thimerosal’ induces neural damage similar to that seen in autism patients:

Thimerosal-induced cellular damage as evidenced by concentration- and time-dependent mitochondrial damage, reduced oxidative-reduction activity, cellular degeneration, and cell death in the in vitro human neuronal and fetal model systems studied. Thimerosal at low nanomolar (nM) concentrations induced significant cellular toxicity in human neuronal and fetal cells. Thimerosal-induced cytoxicity is similar to that observed in AD pathophysiologic studies. Thimerosal was found to be significantly more toxic than the other metal compounds examined.

One would think that using a mercury based compound is a rather stupid thing to do. We know mercury is bad for the body, so why put the stuff in vaccines when an alcohol based compound can be used ?

I recommend reading the comment section at the link for additional information on this issue.
