"Swine flu vaccine raises concern"
"I have many concerns about the swine flu vaccine that we have been hearing so much about in the media. Parents and the public are not being given balanced information. The swine flu vaccine is not being adequately tested. It is being fast-tracked and not subject to the usual Food and Drug Administration standards required of most vaccines
. Many doses of the swine flu vaccine will contain thimerosal, a mercury-containing organic compound that is 50 times more toxic than mercury itself. Mercury is a known neurotoxin and does not belong in our vaccines."

3. "Thimerosal, organic mercury, swine flu and you."
"But we’re going to go ahead and put it in flu vaccine.’ And of course that includes the swine flu vaccine. And it is in there, I read the label. Thimerosal is nearly 50% mercury.
Now, there is mercury and then there is mercury. Organic mercury – that contained in Thimerosal – is more dangerous than inorganic mercury, as it tends to hang around in the body longer. How dangerous is it? According to one report, “In 1977, a Russian study found that adults exposed to ethylmercury, the form of mercury in thimerosal, suffered brain damage years later.
Studies on thimerosal poisoning also describe tubular necrosis and nervous system injury, including obtundation, coma and death. As a result of these findings, Russia banned thimerosal from children's vaccines in 1980
. Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have also banned the preservative."

4. "Possible Dangers of Swine-Flu Vaccines"
"This time we have been told most doses of these flu shots will be in multi-dose vials (which are preserved with Thimerosal (49.5 percent mercury by weight, a compound whose safety has never been proven as required by law
). However, unlike the last time... b) There will be several inactivated-influenza vaccine suppliers who will produce vaccines with differing adverse-effect profiles, so it will be more difficult to prove the vaccine was the cause. Unadjuvanted vaccines (vaccines without chemical immune “helpers”) will be tested, but many may get an adjuvanted shot. See dailypaul.com/node/103773 (c) There will be no guaranteed compensation for anyone harmed—not even under the NVICP—because these vaccines will not be adequately tested for safety, much less for effectiveness. A few clinical trials for “efficacy and dose” started in late July (see clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=swine+flu), but all without proper safety testing (where a placebo containing only buffered sterile saline is used) because of the “safety” (a lie) of the similar human influenza vaccines given from 1950s to the present. These swine-flu vaccines will be given under a health emergency (“Pandemic Alert”) scenario with apparently no FDA-regulation-compliant approval
. See thenhf.com/newsflash_57.htm
(d) Like all vaccines, the long-term mercury-poisoning and immune-system harms will not even be looked for.
Most “trials” will only look for adverse effects for 21 days

5. "What's in the flu shot?"
"And high-dose mercury is not the only additive in the new flu vaccinations. Besides injecting live flu virus directly into yours and your child's body,
these shots will also contain "adjuvants," to make the virus supply for the shots go farther. One of the adjuvants will probably be "squalene
." This is a naturally occurring substance found throughout the human body, and might be harmless if you drank it. But when it is injected, several of the doctors in the references below, believe it will cause the body to produce antibodies which will produce autoimmune diseases in many and compromise their quality of life permanently, and they believe many will die. "

6. "Neutralising the toxicity of vaccines"
"Vaccines contain heavy metals, cancer causing substances, toxic chemicals, live and genetically modified viruses, contaminated serum containing animal viruses and foreign genetic material, extremely toxic de-contaminants and adjuvants, untested antibiotics, none of which can be injected without causing any harm. The mercury, aluminum and live viruses in vaccines may be behind the huge epidemic of autism (1 in 10 worldwide as per doctors in the USA, 1 in 37 as per a private study by doctors in New Delhi), a fact that (vaccines cause autism) has been admitted by the US Vaccine Court

7. "Family faces uncertainty in dealing with autism"
"The Ziegeweids also recall Sheryl's development taking a step backward after receiving infant immunizations at 6 and 12 months - regression they attribute to a form of mercury in those shots."

8. "Consider individual in vaccine debate"
"In his March 13 letter to the editor, Edward Bell quoted the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in its report on mercury and autism. He was championing science- yet, he ignored other important details from the IOM review. From the FDA Web site, the IOM's Safety Review Committee "did conclude that the hypothesis that exposure to thimerosal-containing vaccines could be associated with neurodevelopmental disorders was biologically plausible
." It also concluded that neurodevelopmental disorders are consistent with mercury poisoning. Plausibility and consistency have weight and to recognize as much is hardly "ignoring science," as Bell suggested.... More investigations are needed. Especially when you've spoken with a parent whose child was fine one day, then was vaccinated, had a reaction and shortly thereafter withdrew into the darkness of autism."

9. "Poison in our bodies"
"Thimerosal, by weight, is 50 percent mercury, which has been linked very closely to most learning disabilities, Autism included. Thimerosal serves no purpose other than to prolong the shelf life of a vaccine. This means that if America wasn't so hell bent on making a buck and keeping everything for as long as possible so we can sell it, we could produce vaccines at par with what we need with no preservatives in them at all. By the way, inject this Thimerosal stuff directly into your body with no buffer, and your central nervous system will shut down and you'll probably die. I find it deplorable that the FDA and EPA will warn us not to eat fish in mass quantity because it may contain mercury, which poses a health threat, but they have no problem injecting it directly into our bodies
. It's like the government telling us not to smoke, then turning around and asking us for a light. It makes as much sense as a bailout plan for corrupt, fraudulent executives or bombing for peace."

10. "Truth or consequences about mercury"
"This article is called "Exposure to Low Doses of Mercury Changes the Way the Arteries Work", dated October 27th, 2008. http://www.sciencedaily.com/release/2008/10/081023222556.htm.
An international team of researchers has shown that mercury is another important factor in cardiovascular disease as it changes the way arteries work. ...The main effects of mercury affect the central nervous system and renal function. Over recent years the scientific community has reported an increase in cardiovascular risk following exposure to mercury, "although the mechanisms responsible for this increase are not completely known.""
