    The program that was replayed today had a discussion about hept B and vaccine shots on newborns when the doctors where on. During that discussion a website was mentioned that contained info on the vaccines. Can someone tell me that website address? I couldn’t hear it when it was said.

    When was the show that played this morning recorded? The vaccine stuff is total psuedoscience, there is NO LINK between vaccines & autism. The study that supposedly linked the two was found to be a fraud.

    Vaccines work. I don’t know who made the statement along the lines of ‘vaccines have no evidence behind them & cause autism’ but I’m sure he’s not dead from the measles, right? Or polio? Entire diseases have been neutralized, diseases that caused massive amounts of death before the invention of vaccines.

    Proponents of the alleged link between vaccines and autism charge that vaccines contain mercury, which in large enough doses, kills cells and causes neurological damage. What some vaccines contain is actually not plain mercury, but the preservative thimerosal. Thimerosal’s main active ingredient is an organic version of mercury called ethylmercury. Ethylmercury is naturally expelled from the body quickly. Methylmercury, on the other hand, is not. It stays in the body. High doses of methylmercury will cause physiological damage. However, ethylmercury and methylmercury are not the same thing, despite the similar names. Methylmercury is not present in thimerosal. In short, vaccines preserved with thimerosal do not even contain the type of mercury that activists say is dangerous. And even if they did, the amount would be too small to be considered a risk.

    If thimerosal were a cause of autism, then wouldn’t its removal from vaccines curb the rising rates of diagnosis? Well, obviously, yes it would. But it didn’t. The FDA removed thimerosal from childhood vaccines in the US in 1997, as a precautionary measure, partly in response to all the anti-vaccine activism. Autism diagnoses continued to rise unabated. Denmark and Sweden eliminated thimerosal five years earlier. Their rates also continued to climb.
