One of the biggest exposures of mercury toxicity is from vaccinations.
Mercury also comes evaporated in the atmosphere. Inorganic mercury is methylated in the marine environment by microorganisms and then accumulates in fat deposits of fish.Mercury toxicity comes from from vaccinations, dental amalgams and other environmental exposures. There is evidence to show that much of the variance in mercury sensitivity is determined by genetic factors, including MTHFR genetic mutations.
Mercury Toxicity has several factors:
- Injection vs. ingestion or vapor exposure.
- The chemical form of mercury – inhalation of vapor is worse than inorganic which may be worse than organic.
- The dose or amount of mercury for example and the number of vaccines
- Age of person – a fetus, neonate, and infants are much more susceptible to lower doses of mercury
- Length of exposure – longer exposures the more dangerous
- Route of exposure – inhalation is worst, followed by ingestion and then skin exposure
- Persons overall health status before exposure and medical issue do worse than healthy people.
Neurological Damage From Mercury
- The central nervous system is a major target of mercury.
- Both high and low dose exposure can produce significant long-term neurological damage.
- Neurological symptoms attributed to mercury intoxication include ataxia, deafness, psychosis and loss of speech.
- The nervous system is sensitive to all forms of mercury.
- Exposure to high levels can damage the brain and kidneys.
- Pregnant women can pass the mercury in their bodies to their babies and through breast milk.
Symptoms of Mercury Toxicity
Mercury in Biological Products – read more here
- There are, at last count, over 100 FDA-approved pharmaceutical products which contain mercury!
- The typical amount of mercury in these products is 50,000 ppb.
- To put this in perspective, the EPA requires liquid waste which exceeds 200 ppb of mercury to be sent to a special hazardous waste landfill and according to the EPA, drinking water cannot exceed 2 ppb of mercury. So if these products are not used, they must be disposed of as hazardous waste.
Mercury In Cosmetics read more here
- Several decades ago, mercury-containing products were popular for lightening or bleaching the skin. Now any amount at or above 1 ppm is subject to strict regulatory action.
- FDA did make an exception for cosmetics intended for use only in the area of the eye. This exception applies only for preservatives in eye-area products such as eyeliners and mascara.
- This exception does not apply to creams and lotions. According to the Environmental Working Group there were 6 mascara products in the U.S. that contained the mercury based preservative thimerosal, but they have been phased out of use and are no longer available.
- These terms in cosmetics mean it contains mercury – read your labels!
- Mercurous chloride
Mercury In Dental Amalgams
- Mercury has been used in amalgam for dental filling.
- Amalgam (mercury) fillings are 50% mercury by weight.
- Mercury fillings off gas 1 microgram of toxic mercury into the body, per filling, per day.
- Chronic mercury poisoning from amalgam fillings takes time to accumulate and express a related symptom. Sadly, the American Dental Association (ADA) and pro-amalgam dentists continue to say that the mercury released from these fillings is not a health hazard. They are wrong!
- Never get amalgam fillings in your teeth! If you have them, the must be removed safely using a holistic dentist.
- To find a holistic dentist for SAFE amalgam (mercury) dental filling removal, go to www.iaomt.org.
- Toxic mercury vapor is continually being released from amalgam fillings where 80% of it enters the body and accumulates in it. Be sure to watch the video of the “Smoking Tooth” when you are there to see mercury vapor from a filling.
- Mercury is 0resent in contact lens solutions, cosmetics and drugs and other biological products as thimerosol.
Mercury in Environmental Exposures
Mercury is found in air, water and soil. If heated, it forms a colorless, odorless gas and combines with other elements to form powders or crystals. Metallic mercury is used in glass thermometers, silver dental filling and button batteries. Mercury salts may be used in skin creams and ointments. Mercury can pass through the food chain and build up in fish, shellfish, and animals that eat fish. Mercury can directly or indirectly cause, contribute to, or make worse every single health issue.
- Mercury is evaporated in the atmosphere.
- Mercury is the most poisonous, non-radioactive, naturally occurring substance on earth.
- The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that there is no safe level of mercury.
- Even one atom of it in your body is doing some harm to it.
- Inorganic mercury is methylated in the marine environment by microorganisms and then accumulates in fat deposits of fish and seafood.
- Mercury is used in the manufacture of thermometers, manometers, electric equipment, fluorescent light bulbs, pharmaceuticals and pesticides.
Mercy As Thimerosal in Vaccines
- Mercury is used as a preservative in many vaccines including flu shots.
- Remember the word “thimerosal” means it contains 49.6% mercury.
- Thimerosol is 50% mercury by weight is uses as a preservative in many vaccines.
- Mercury (and aluminum) is injected into millions of infants and children yearly, causing significant heavy metal toxicity and while those children’s immune systems or at their weakest.
- Many flu shots still contain mercury.
- Rhogam Shots: Until about 2001, each Rhogam shot had 25 mgm of mercury in it. Read more here https://www.vaccinetruth.org/rhogam.html. Although thimerosal free RhoGAM became available in 2002, the supply of mercury-containing RhoGAM is still on the market.
- In studies, 53% of mothers of autistic children are Rh negative, while only 3% of mothers of normal children are Rh-negative.
- Hep B had mercury until 2007. Hepatitis B contained as much as 12.5 micrograms of mercury per dose. When Engerix-B was licensed as a thimerosol free version of the vaccine in January 2007. However, all formulations contain approximately 0.5 mg of aluminum per mL of vaccine instead.
- Vaccines with mercury include:
- Flu shot – Fluzone, Flulaval, or Fluvirin (25 mcg)
- Hep B – Engergix (3 mcg)
- DTaP – Tripedia (3 mcg)
- DTaP/Hib Combo – TriHIBit (3 mcg)
- In 2001, except for influenza (flu), thimerosal was removed from or reduced in all vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years of age and under manufactured for the U.S. market. But all formulations contain aluminum instead, which is also highly toxic.
- Russia banned thimerosal from children’s vaccines in 1980.
- Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have also banned the preservative.
Current Status of Thimerosal in Vaccines
- Read about Thimerosal Content of Available FDA-Approved Seasonal Influenza Vaccines
- The use of thimerosal as a preservative in U.S. FDA-licensed vaccines has significantly declined due to reformulation and development of new vaccines presented in single-dose containers.
- All vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years of age and younger in the U.S. are available in formulations that do not contain thimerosal.
- As with pediatric vaccines, vaccines for adolescents and adults are available in formulations that do not contain thimerosal.
- Note: one vaccine, Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids Adsorbed, single-dose presentation, manufactured by Mass Biologics utilizes thimerosal as part of its manufacturing process, not as a preservative, and a trace remains in the final presentation.
- FDA-approved seasonal influenza vaccines are available in single-dose presentations that do not contain thimerosal as a preservative for use in infants, children, adults, the elderly and pregnant women.
- Note: one vaccine, Fluvirin’s single-dose presentation utilizes thimerosal as part of its manufacturing process, not as a preservative, and a trace remains in the final presentation.
- Vaccines with trace amounts of thimerosal contain 1 microgram or less of mercury per dose.
