YES: Thimerosal CAN induce autism

Posted by Henry Bauer on 2014/08/27

Again through Celia Farber’s blog I was able to find the published article that show s a statistically significant higher rate of autism from vaccines containing thimerosal than from vaccines without it:

David A Geier, Brian S Hooker, Janet K Kern, Paul G King, Lisa K Sykes & Mark R Geier, “A two-phase study evaluating the relationship between Thimerosal-containing vaccine administration and the risk for an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis in the United States”, Translational Neurodegeneration , 2 (2013) 25

Conclusions: Routine childhood vaccination is an important public health tool to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with infectious diseases, but the present study provides new epidemiological evidence supporting an association between increasing organic-Hg exposure from Thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines and the subsequent risk of an ASD diagnosis.”
