7.12: news.med/flu vaccine/beware thimerosal:
. some flu vaccines still contain thimerosal
delivering about 25 micrograms of ethylmercury.
It is known that as little a 0.5 micromole
[114.825 micrograms]* of ethylmercury
[ 5 years of thimerosal-flu vaccines ]
can produce a 50% inhibition of the
brain's most important protective system
*[ ethyl mercury has 229.65 micrograms per micromol;
so 0.5 micromole is 0.5*229.65 = 114.825 micrograms]
. methylmercury is the form found in fish;
ethylmercury is worse than methylmercury;
because, more of it is converted to the
ionic form of mercury,
which is not only the most damaging to brain cells
but is almost impossible to remove;
over 70% of ethylmercury becomes ionic
vs only 10% of methylmercury.
. after 10 years of thimerosal-flu vaccines
you would have close to 100 micrograms
of mercury in your brain.
. mercury in the brain is especially toxic to
the very young and the elderly [Dr.Blaylock].
. ethyl mercury quickly clears the blood,
but most of it is deposited in organs
rather than excreted
[Robert Kennedy`Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak:
The Evidence Supporting the Immediate Removal of
Mercury--a Known Neurotoxin--from Vaccines].
Over the past several years,
because of an increasing awareness of the
theoretical potential for neurotoxicity
of even low levels of organomercurials
and because of the increased number of
thimerosal containing vaccines that had been added
to the infant immunization schedule,
concerns about the use of thimerosal in vaccines
and other products have been raised.
Indeed, because of these concerns,
the Food and Drug Administration has worked with,
and continues to work with, vaccine manufacturers
to reduce or eliminate thimerosal from vaccines.
Thimerosal has been removed from
or reduced to trace amounts
in all vaccines routinely recommended for
children 6 years of age and younger,
with the exception of inactivated influenza vaccine.
A vaccine containing 0.01% thimerosal
contains 50 micrograms of thimerosal per 0.5 mL dose
or approximately 25 micrograms of mercury per 0.5 mL dose
metabolized or degraded to ethylmercury and thiosalicylate.
. there are some flu vaccines with no thimerosal:
Agriflu, Fluzone, Fluvirin, Fluarix, FluMist [FDA].
. if you do get mercury from any source
you may be able to remove it with selenium
if you happen to have the selenium in your blood
at the time the mercury enters your blood
