The real story in all of this, however, is that mercury is frequently used as a preservative in vaccines. Some amount of mercury is found in virtually every vaccine given to children, not in just this one vaccine. It is astonishing, too, that vaccinations containing mercury continue to be given to our children on a regular basis each and every year, across the country, and around the world.
Mercury, of course, is one of the most toxic substances you can put in a human body. It is a heavy metal known to contribute to neurological disorders, including autism, dementia, and even Alzheimer's disease. Mercury also tends to build up in tissues in the human body and is not easily removed, so even small exposures to mercury can accumulate over time and end up compromising the health of the person involved.
Vaccinations, it turns out, aren't really good medicine at all. Vaccinations have been known to kill children or cause severe reactions that injure them for life. As more and more parents are educating themselves about the dangers of vaccines in the United States and elsewhere, they are avoiding giving their children these vaccines, and thereby protecting the health of their children. Mercury isn't the only toxin known to be contained in vaccines -- vaccines present many other health risks, including the potential for autoimmune disorders such as type 1 diabetes.
The internet, of course, is serving as the main conduit of information for people who want to learn more about vaccines and who want to branch outside the traditional controlled, organized medicine view of vaccination, which is, of course, that all vaccinations are safe and everybody should get vaccinated, regardless of how many people are killed by it or what kind of toxic ingredients (like mercury) are contained in the vaccines. Even following this news about the mercury being found in this one batch of vaccines, officials declare it to be perfectly safe for children, which just goes to show you how bizarre things can get when health authorities get involved.
