Early Downward Trends in Neurodevelopmental Disorders Following Removal of
Study Shows Decline in Neurodevelopmental Disorders
After Removal of Thimerosal-Containing Vaccines
A new study published today (3/1/06) shows that the rate of neurodevelopmental
disorders (NDs) in children has decreased following removal of thimerosal, a
preservative containing the neurotoxin mercury, from American childhood
vaccines. The study, published in the Journal of American Physicians and
Surgeons, a peer reviewed journal, by Dr. Mark Geier and David Geier examined
two independent databases maintained by the government - one national and one
state. The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) database maintained
by the Centers for Disease Control and the Californian Department of
Developmental Services (CDDS) database each showed the same downward trend for
the period from 2002 through 2005. According to the study "[t]he results
indicate that the trends in newly diagnosed NDs correspond directly with the
expansion and subsequent contraction of the cumulative mercury dose to which
children were exposed from [thimerosal-containing vaccines] through the U.S.
The study examined the trend for cases of autism during the period beginning
1994 and ending 2002 compared with the period from 2002 to June, 2005. The
trends for increases and decreases of cases of autism found in the VAERS
national database were consistent with the trends found in the CDDC California
database. Most significantly, in each database the increasing and decreasing
trends correlate with the time that the exposure to thimerosal through the
immunization schedule was increased and then decreased after removal of mercury
containing vaccines. "The consistency of the effects observed for the spectrum
of NDs, including autism and speech disorders, and the agreement between the
observations from two separate databases, support the conclusion that the effect
is real and not a chance observation." The study found that the magnitude of the
change in the decreasing trend of cases was significant after removal of mercury
from vaccines. Data from the U.S. Department of Education, a third database,
showed a recent decrease of autism diagnoses that is consistent with the
findings in the two databases.
The authors show that the biological plausibility of their statistical findings
is supported by recent toxicological and molecular studies that reveal the
mechanism by which mercury from vaccines can cause damage to the developing
brains of children. A recent study by researchers at the University of
Washington has shown that ethylmercury from thimerosal in vaccines can cross
from the bloodstream into the brain in toxic amounts which can remain in brain
tissue for many years. This finding contradicted the untested view about the
toxicity of ethylmercury in vaccines that prevailed in public health for 75
years. Other researchers have shown that minute concentrations of mercury, far
lower than previously believed and far less than other toxins such as lead, can
destroy neurons and damage DNA within hours of exposure. Such low levels of
mercury, which likely are reached in infant brains via vaccine thimerosal
exposure, can disrupt cell signaling and metabolic pathways necessary for normal
brain development. Studies in mice, rabbits, monkeys, rats and other animals
support these findings. Further studies in children have found evidence of
mercury toxicity, metabolic disruption and oxidative stress that is consistent
with the author's statistical findings that thimerosal in vaccines causes autism
and developmental disorders.
The authors point out that their finding that the VAERS and CDDS databases show
strong associations between thimerosal containing vaccines and
neurodevelopmental disorders completely contradicts the 2004 findings contained
in a report published by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of
Sciences - which was based on data controlled exclusively by the Center for
Disease Control's National Immunization Program and unavailable to outside
researchers. In arguing that their study's findings justify additional research
the authors point out that the handling of vaccine safety data by the Centers
for Disease Control has been called into serious question in a 2005 report
published by the Institute of Medicine.

walkin, I had my first child in 2003 and questioned my pediatrician even then about thimerosal when it came time to vaccinate. I had read an article in an alternative parenting magazine about the dangers of vaccines. He got upset with me even asking about it, quickly dismissing it by saying, "It's not even the same kind of mercury and besides, they've already taken it out of vaccines." My warning radar didn't even go off then because he was challenging my knowledge on types of mercury. I submitted. Because nothing ever happened to my first child as far as visibly reacting to any vaccines, I dismissed them once again thinking they were all safe since the mercury was gone. After my second infants first couple of vaccinations, he started having "eczema" related skin rashes which I eventually linked to vaccines. I was completely unaware of the rest of the toxic substances they put in vaccines besides thimerosal- until I started researching. And on top of the toxins, the schedule in which they recommend makes no sense, especially when a baby is still developing an immune system. Also if you are nursing, a baby is mostly immune by the mother. Another pediatrician (there are many ones you can see at this office) respects the parents choice and does not give a hard time when you refuse, so now I am now relieved to go in for weight/height checkups. It is sad that I could not rely on my doctor, for whatever reason, these are the things that the pharm co's tell them, and they believe. I resolved to educate myself on the matter. The next obstacle to overcome is the public school, although it legal to exempt on religious beliefs, I would prefer an easy time registering. I am fully prepared however to "home-school" if necessary, although I don't think it will come to that.
Just thought I would share my story. I am with you 100% on the insanity that is vaccinating for immunity. I wish others were more aware of all the problems they cause and the ineffectiveness. I wasn't, and it could have been too late for my child if I did not educate myself. They say, well reactions are because babies can have sensitivities. Well of course they have sensitivities, they are babies and you are injecting with 8 doses of aluminum, formeldhyde, hydrocloric acid, and foreign protein directly into the vein. No filters, or anything. It is sickening, but not legal, thank goodness.

The Japanese started to bar vaccines before age two - but they relented under pressure -- I imagine from the USA
walkin on 2006-03-03What I mean is that is not the US does not legally MAKE you get shots. You, as a parent, can say no. They just don't tell you the law. If you know you are allowed, you can say no. I thought the Japanese DID bar. I guess I'm behind the times. They did for a while, right? I thought they saw the SIDS rate decrease when they did so. Pressure sucks.
