This is complete crap. Children don’t get Autism from vaccines. They are born with it-it only just shows up around the time you give your children these vaccines. Please read up on what autism really is before you believe this bullshit.
Also-saying you’d rather have your child possibly die from a preventable disease rather than have autism is disgusting and ableist.
Also-The amount of mercury in vaccines is negliable. You ingest more from eating fish.
Okay one thing I’m tired of seeing: “your born with it” or “vaccines cause it” um no we actually have NO CLUE what causes autism. NONE. With the rate autism is climbing it’s pretty obvious that it cannot be purely genetic, that could play a part yes, BUT WE HAVE NO CLUE. Nothing conclusive has EVER been found. Please people, quit making these blanket statements about what autism is and isn’t and where it comes from.
Secondly, not vaccinating does not mean your child will die from a preventable disease. We are seeing lots of cases of measles in the last ten years but no one, not one person has died. Please stop with the ignorant statements and go do some basic disease research.
Thirdly, ingestion and injection are two different things. I can ingest snake venom and live, if I inject it I will die.
Regardless it’s a disgusting statement to say that you would rather have your child possibly catch and maybe die from a preventable disease than have autism.
Also you really need to do your research on how much of these ingredients are in the vaccines. The ones that worry people are in such small amounts that they’re barely there and won’t do any harm.
Who said that? No one did.
Let’s take a look at vaccine ingredients.
Aluminum is present in many things around us. It’s in food, air, water, and soil and is said to be harmless when swallowed because it doesn’t absorb into the body when consumed. Aluminum is put into vaccines as an adjuvant to help them “work better” or to “enhance” them. So what is the concern about injecting aluminum into the blood stream?
According to the FDA:
“Aluminum may reach toxic levels with prolonged parenteral administration [this means injected into the body] if kidney function is impaired … Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates [babies], who received parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 micrograms per kilogram of body weight per day, accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity [for a tiny newborn, this toxic dose would be 10 to 20 micrograms, and for an adult it would be about 350 micrograms]. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration.” [Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, Document NDA 19-626/S-019, Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for Dextrose Injections.]
”Aluminum content in parenteral drug products could result in a toxic accumulation of aluminum in individuals receiving TPN therapy. Research indicates that neonates [newborns] and patient populations with impaired kidney function may be at high risk of exposure to unsafe amounts of aluminum. Studies show that aluminum may accumulate in the bone, urine, and plasma of infants receiving TPN. Many drug products used in parenteral therapy [injections] may contain levels of aluminum sufficiently high to cause clinical manifestations [symptoms] … parenteral aluminum bypasses the protective mechanism of the GI tract and aluminum circulates and is deposited in human tissues. Aluminum toxicity is difficult to identify in infants because few reliable techniques are available to evaluate bone metabolism in … infants … Although aluminum toxicity is not commonly detected clinically, it can be serious in selected patient populations, such as neonates [newborns], and may be more common than is recognized.” [Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, Document 02N-0496, Aluminum in Large and Small Volume Parenterals Used in Total Parenteral Nutrition. Available online at: http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/98fr/oc0367.pdf]
So basically from those documents we learn that if a premature baby receives more than 10 mcg of aluminum in an IV, it can accumulate in their bones and brain, and can be toxic.
The FDA maximum requirements for aluminum received in an IV is 25 mcg per day. The suggested aluminum per kg of weight to give to a person is up to 5mcg. (so a 5 pounds baby should get no more than 11mcg of aluminum.) Anything that has more than 25 mcg of aluminum is *supposed* to have a label that says:
WARNING: This product contains aluminum that may be toxic. Aluminum may reach toxic levels with prolonged parenteral administration if kidney function is impaired. Premature neonates are particularly at risk because their kidneys are immature, and they require large amounts of calcium and phosphate solutions, which contain aluminum.
Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates, who receive parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 [micro]g/kg/day accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration. [http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfcfr/CFRSearch.cfm?fr=201.323]
– Vaccines, for some reason, are not required to have this label and also are not required to follow the maximum dosage of 25 mcg.
So doing some math — the following are examples of weight with their corresponding maximum levels of aluminum, per the FDA:
8 pound, healthy baby: 18.16 mcg of aluminum
15 pound, healthy baby: 34.05 mcg of aluminum
30 pound, healthy toddler: 68.1 mcg of aluminum
50 pound, healthy child: 113 mcg of aluminum
150 pound adult: 340.5 mcg of aluminum
350 pound adult: 794.5 mcg of aluminum
So how much aluminum is in the vaccines that are routinely given to children?
Hib (PedVaxHib brand only) – 225 mcg per shot
Hepatitis B – 250 mcg
DTaP – depending on the manufacturer, ranges from 170 to 625 mcg
Pneumococcus – 125 mcg
Hepatitis A – 250 mcg
HPV – 225 mcg
Pentacel (DTaP, HIB and Polio combo vaccine) – 330 mcg
Pediarix (DTaP, Hep B and Polio combo vaccine) – 850 mcg
At birth, most children are given the hepatitis B vaccination. The amount of aluminum in the Hepatitis B vaccine alone is almost 14 TIMES THE AMOUNT OF ALUMINUM THAT IS FDA-APPROVED.
At well-child check-ups, it’s common for 2 month, 4 month, 6 month etc., appointments to include up to 8 vaccinations that add up to more than 1,000 mcg of aluminum. Look at the chart above and notice that that amount isn’t even safe for a 350 pound adult. And many children get up to 8 vaccinations a visit several times a year!
According to the FDA and the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics), what happens if a child receives more than the maximum required dose of aluminum?
Aluminum builds up in the bones and brain and can be toxic.
Aluminum can cause neurological harm.
Aluminum overdose can be fatal in patients with weak kidney’s or kidney disorders or in premature babies. (How many children are tested to see if their kidney’s are functioning properly before they are vaccinated?)
[Aluminum Toxicity in Infants and Children, Committee on Nutrition,American Academy of Pediatrics, Pediatrics Volume 97, Number 3 March, 1996, pp. 413-416]
Thimerosal is a compound made up of approximately 50% mercury. Mercury is the second most poisonous element known to man (next to uranium and its derivatives.) When someone says, “MERCURY!” we immediately think of the news stories about the child at school who broke a thermometer in biology class and the HAZ-MAT team was called in and all the students were in peril. Did you know they make that big of a deal (meaning bringing in the HAZ-MAT crew) for less mercury than what is contained in 1 vaccine [http://www.epa.gov/mercury/spills/index.htm]? Thimerosal is used as a preservative in vaccines to help prevent bacteria growth in multi-use vaccines. It is also used in the creation process of a vaccine, and then through a purification process it is “removed” and only “trace” amounts are left. First, I urge you to read this article: Is There Thimerosal in the Flu Vaccine?
Next, let’s discuss what “trace amounts” means. (If you notice in vaccine inserts next to many of the “Thimerosal”‘s, there is an asterisk next to it. The asterisk notates that “ *Where “thimerosal” is marked with an asterisk (*) it indicates that the product should be considered equivalent to thimerosal-free products.”)
Before we move on, a little story — I was at the grocery store a little while ago looking at a large bag of “Stevia” — the new fad in no-calorie sweeteners. I was reading the back of the bag and I came to a little spot at the bottom that said “Each serving contains less than 2 calories which the FDA considers dietetically zero.” What?! That doesn’t even make sense! If something is said to be “calorie-free”, it should be calorie-free, right?? If something has calories in it, it has calories in it. You cannot place some carrots on the counter and tell me there are no carrots on the counter. A serving size of Stevia is 1tsp, so let’s assume that 1 tsp contains 1.9 calories. Remember, we have to assume because we DON’T ACTUALLY KNOW. It’s the FDA that says the calories in Stevia don’t exist, but just for the mere fact that there is this disclaimer on the bag lets us know that there are, in fact, carrots on the counter… er, I mean calories in the bag. But going back, we’re going to say there are 1.9 calories per serving. Using Stevia is “cup for cup.” In other words, you use the same amount of Stevia as you would regular sugar. So, I’m going to make some fantabulous “low-calorie” chocolate chip cookies with my “no-calorie” Stevia. I’m on a strict diet, so all I need to add up to find out how many calories are in my batch of cookies are all of my ingredients EXCEPT sugar, right? But wait… I’m adding 2 cups of Stevia into my batch of cookies. There are 48 teaspoons in a cup, which means I’m adding 96 teaspoons of Stevia — which also would equate to 182.4 EXTRA calories. There’s no argument that it has greatly reduced the number of calories in my batch of cookies versus using conventional sugar, but the fact remains: NO-CALORIE IS NOT NO-CALORIE.
So the fact that those vaccines containing thimerosal with an asterisk beside it virtually says the same thing and is extremely misleading. They should be “considered equivalent to thimerosal-free products” gives the illusion that there is no thimerosal in vaccines, or at least not enough to have to worry about. But remember, if I eat 8 batches of my cookies that are supposed to be low calorie because of my “calorie-free” Stevia, I’m actually consuming 1,459.2 calories that the FDA says aren’t really there. This can be applied to vaccines as well. Many “well-child” check-ups include up to 8 vaccines in one sitting.
So how much does “trace” mean? According to the CDC, it says less than or equal to 0.3mcg per dose.
• 2 ppb mercury is the mandated limit in drinking water
• 200 ppb mercury in liquid waste renders it a toxic hazard
• 25,000 ppb is found in infant flu shots
• 50,000 ppb is found in regular flu shots — recommended for children, pregnant women, the elderly…
Also the math on how many ppb in a “thimerosal free” vaccine:
0.3 mcg / 0.5mL =
0.3 mcg / .0005L =
…3,000 mcg / 5L =
600 mcg / L
1 mg/KG = 1 PPM (formal definition of PPM)
1 L = 1 KG (density of water or saline solution)
1 mcg/L = 1 PPB (because 1 KG and 1 L of water are equivalent)
600 mcg / L =
600 ppb Thimerosal in the “thimerosal-free” vaccine
Flu vaccine has “only” 25 mcg Thimerosal. The shot is 0.5mL. Let’s do some math:
25 mcg / 0.5mL =
25 mcg / .0005L =
250,000 mcg / 5L =
50,000 mcg / L
1 mcg / L = 1 ppb, therefore
The shot has 50,000 ppb of Thimerosal
Remember that 2 ppb mercury is the mandated limit in drinking water and normally 200 ppb would label something a toxic hazard.
After we find all of this information out, we have to ask ourselves: Why is mercury dangerous??
***Notice that mercury doesn’t only stunt neurological growth, it actually reverses it, or destroys it.
First of all, vaccines are not injected into the bloodstream.
Second, of course vaccines don’t have that warning label. That’s the FDA’s MPL of aluminum given to premature infants in intensive care by IV. In other words, for aluminum in intravenous feeding solution delivered continuously for long periods, not aluminum applied in unit doses at spaced intervals by intramuscular/subcutaneous injection.
It doesn’t make any sense to use this number in this context.
Furthermore, it’s stated the FDA’s MPL of aluminum received in premature infants by IV is 25 mcg per day. This is also incorrect. MPL = maximum permissible level, and is not an amount at all. MPL is a concentration, as in 25 µg/L, so it has nothing whatsoever to do with the maximum amount of aluminum that can be safely injected.
An average premature baby would get something around 100 ml/kg/day of the solution, so 2.5 - 5 µg a day of aluminum from the IV. And the estimated amount of aluminum given by feeding solution only accounts for 10%, maybe 15% max, of the total parenteral aluminum intake per kg of body weight for premature infants because MPL is purposefully kept low to allow for other sources of parenteral aluminum the babies will be receiving.
Going back to the second point, that those particular numbers are not relevant in context, studies show intramuscularly injected aluminum-containing adjuvants are dissolved by organic acids in interstitial fluids and quickly eliminated from the body, rather than entering the blood stream (intravenous injection) and having a chance to accumulate in tissues (here’s one if you want to have a look).
Here’s the ATSDR’s in-depth study of all sources of aluminum exposure in infants and contribution to total aluminum body burden, which includes oral, dermal, inhalation, and vaccine exposure.
The bit about thimerosal is irrelevant. Not only has thimerosal in vaccines been shown to be safe in studies, the regulations used above are for inorganic mercury, not ethylmercury.
“With the rate autism is climbing it’s pretty obvious that it cannot be purely genetic”
Diagnosis of autism was changed in the 1990’s to ASD. People are having children later in life. There are incentives for diagnosis. Increased surveillance. *shrugs*
“We are seeing lots of cases of measles in the last ten years but no one, not one person has died. Please stop with the ignorant statements and go do some basic disease research.”
There were 122,000 measles deaths in 2012 alone.
That is 14 people an hour.
After we find all of this information out, we have to ask ourselves: Why is mercury dangerous??
((And regarding the actual graphic, which I have only just noticed, no, autism is not mercury poisoning, if anyone was wondering. ))
