Thimerosal: Beware of The Allergy Symptoms

Thimerosal is a light-colored crystalline powder (trade name Merthiolate) that is primarily used as a surgical antiseptic. It is a mercury based compound which can also be found in your personal care products, make up, and childhood vaccines. Because this is found in childhood vaccines, doctors have recommended that autistic children and their siblings not get vaccinated because Thimerosal can yield bad reactions. Yet, with Thimerosal also being found in numerous personal care products that you find in your local stores, you must stop to wonder what is this product doing to adults? First, it is important to understand that Thimerosal's only role within these products is to serve as a preservative.

Other preservatives can be used rather than Thimerosal. Mercury is a known neurotoxin and anyone saying it is harmless is lying. Dump anything that carries this toxic material.
