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.”
