Bloomington Alternative on Autism, Vaccines and Mercury

Thimerosal bottle Managing Editor's Note: J.B. Handley is quoted in this post at The Bloomington Alternatice. The American experience with mercury-containing vaccines parallels the autism epidemic to the letter.

In 1930, the pharmaceutical manufacturer Eli Lilly & Co. patented a mercury-based preservative called thimerosal for use in childhood vaccines. According to a 2003 congressional report, despite repeated requests through the years, Lilly never tested thimerosal for its human health impacts.For 70 years, Lilly relied on a "woefully inadequate" and "uncontrolled study" from the 1920s as proof thimerosal was safe, the report said.
. . . Starting in the 1940s, American children were vaccinated for diptheria, tetanus and pertussis (DTP). A polio shot was added in 1955, and measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) joined the list in 1971.

In 1989, a fully vaccinated child of 5 had received a total of 11 injections of these three vaccines. In 1990 and 1991, two more were added to the schedule with seven more shots, including hepatitis B at birth. And in 1995 and 1998, an additional two vaccines with five more shots were added, bringing the total number of injections to 23.

Four more vaccines were added in 2000, 2004 and 2006. The CDC and AAP's recommended vaccination scheduletoday says American children should receive 36 shots before they enter first grade, the most aggressive vaccination schedule in the world.

Canada is a distant second with 28, according to a 2009 study published by Generation Rescue titled "Autism and vaccines around the world." The average number of vaccinations among 30 industrialized countries is 18.

Meanwhile, between 1980 and 1994, the incidence of California children with autism jumped 373 percent, from 1 in every 2,272 live births to 1 in 480, according to a 2001 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association...

There is an easy way to determine the validity of any research. Researchers should give their data to the National Database for Autism Research - NDAR - then others can review the data and determine whether good science was used. Then this woman wouldn't have to go all over the place to find information


the test should be over. we have more than proved all these vaccines with all thier toxins cause autism. what a cheap study they did for 70 yrs at a great expense to us and our kids. (it would have been taken a lot less time if they just realized toxins are harazdous to people's health...no safe amounts!!)


It would be very good to have the names of all the brilliant people that made the stuff. It would be good to have all the decision makers too.

Not testing????

They did not test on rats, mice, rabbits, chickens and rainbow trout???? They did not test the first, second, third and even the up to the fifth generation of these animals?
There are test that would show neuro damage and systematic of autopises of the whole population. These population organs and everybody part are examined closely. They are then suppose to be stored for eternity! That if anything goes wrong the record is there to go back and recheck.

Oh, well I might be messed up - that is the EPA rules for companies developing pesticides that is being released into the environment. So no problem then - no EPA regulations for shooting something in the veins??? Maybe this falls under NIH regulations? Surely drug companies have to do the same as pesticide, fertilizer, and agriculture companies?
