Thimerosal is a widely used vaccine preservative that is present in the majority of flu shots and other vaccines. Thimerosal is 49% mercury by volume, an extremely toxic chemical element that wreaks havoc on the nervous system, neurological function, and overall biological function [1]. Each dose of flu vaccine contains around 25 micrograms of thimerosal, over 250 times the Environmental Protection Agency’s safety limit of exposure.

Mercury, a neurotoxin, is especially damaging to undeveloped brains. Considering that 25 micrograms of mercury is considered unsafe by the EPA for any human under 550 pounds, the devastating health effects of mercury on a developing fetus are truly concerning.

Since children are small, fragile, and in a critical stage of development, the effects from the chemicals are heightened greatly. In addition, children are not simply young adults, as stated by Dr. Jerone Paulson, an AAP member of its council on Environmental Health.

This fear or concern for children’s health is especially important when it comes to vaccines. Children are given 26 vaccinations at birth and then some more at 2 months, 4 months, and many other ages. These vaccinations contain toxins – mercury, lead, aluminum, formaldehyde – and young children simply can not handle it. The heavy load of toxicity is leading to sudden infant death syndrome, fainting, vomiting, pain and a virtual endless list of negative side effects that could even end with death. But where is the APA when it comes to these toxic chemicals?

The American Academy of Pediatrics not only recommends children be vaccinated, they even hold an annual “National Infant Immunization Week”. Wait just a minute. Pushing for stricter chemical laws while at the same time pushing for chemicals to be injected into children? In some respect the AAP is right in speaking out for better regulation of chemicals which are very dangerous. But being in favor of injecting children with numerous toxins in their critical stages of development may not be the best stance to take.
