Thimerosal [Hg] Accumulates in Rat Brains, Study Reveals

The researchers examined the pharmacokinetics [The process by which a drug is absorbed, distributed, metabolized, and eliminated by the body.] (1) for mercury in the brain, liver and kidneys. Stunning information states Pharmacokinetic analysis revealed that Hg [mercury] from THIM[EROSAL] injections accumulates in the rat brain in significant amounts and remains there longer than 30 days after the injection. [Emphasis added]

According to the findings, Thimerosal injected into suckling and adult rats impairs sensitivity to pain due to activation of the opioid system that controls pain, reward and addictive behaviors. Furthermore, in six-week-old rats, hypoalgesia [decreased sensitivity to pain] was induced, but gone after 14 days.
