“Vaccine Court” Rules Thimerosal (Mercury) Not Linked To Autism

March 15, 2010: Press TV – March 14, 2010

While certain vaccines had long been linked to autism, the US vaccine court says vaccines containing mercury-based preservatives cannot cause autism on their own.

Many parents blame a combo vaccine used for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) for causing autistic symptoms in their children. The US Institute of Medicine, however, has recurrently rejected such a link. “It’s time to move forward and look for the real causes of autism,” said Alison Singer, the president of the Autism Science Foundation.

According to the federal court ruling, thimerosal, the mercury-based preservatives found in certain vaccines, does not place the child at an increased risk of developing autism.

“While we have great empathy for all parents of children with autism, it is important to keep in mind that, given the present state of the science, the proven benefits of vaccinating a child to protect them against serious diseases far outweigh the hypothesized risk that vaccinations might cause autism,” said Autism Speaks in a statement.

  1. It is like coming into your living room and finding a huge pile of steaming crap on the floor while searching for the cause of the horrendous smell that is filling the house and announcing ” It’s time to move forward and look for the real causes of the stench, this steaming pile of crap on the floor has nothing to do with smell!” Way to go there ASF! You’ve done your job well in protecting the parma industry and have found another way to perpetuate your organization by looking away from the cause and guaranteeing more patients/victims.
