Ethyl mercury is the type found in vaccines, the CDC website says that it differs from Methyl mercury (found in fish, amalgam fillings and the environment) in that it leaves the blood stream much more quickly and is therefore less toxic.
Studies have shown that Ethyl mercury leaves the blood stream within 7 days, where as Methyl mercury takes 54 days to leaving the blood stream, which supports this statement. However, Ethyl mercury was not found to be excreted from the body, in fact, whilst it does leave the blood stream, it crosses the blood brain barrier and goes directly to the brain, where it stays (Burbacher).
Unfortunately Ethyl mercury is metabolised into inorganic mercury at twice the rate that Methyl mercury does, which causes neurological damaged and neurological death in the brain and is 50 times more toxic than Methyl mercury to the brain (Guzzi et al. 2012).
Thimerosal was released in 1931, the same year as the first ever diagnosis of Autism. It was found to be toxic in parts per billion, which had never been witnessed before and when tested on dogs, all test animals died; as for human testing, 22 test subjects who were suffering from meningitis were given Thimerosal, or Merthiolate (CgHgHgNaO2S) as it was then known, all test subjects died, most within 24 hours, however it was considered that they died of the meningitis and it is therefore safe.
The symptoms of Mercury Poisoning and Autism equate line for line.
One study showed that when comparing the risk of autism diagnosis in those who had received under 25µg of thimerosal to those who had received over 25µg, the risks of autism were between 762 and 1135 times higher in those with greater exposure, they also discovered that the risks of ADD, ADHD, ticks, speech delay, sleep disorders and a number of other neuro-developmental disorders had similar statistics (Verstraeten, 1999). As thimerosal does not appear to dissipate from the brain, you can now begin to understand why over-vaccinating causes so many issues.
There are in fact hundreds of studies linking thimerosal to autism, and billions of dollars that have been awarded to children who’s parents have proven that their child was damaged by vaccines.
However, there are very few people who are trying to raise awareness of the damage caused by vaccines in pets. We are very proud that Catherine O’Driscoll of Canine Health Concern, who works tirelessly to raise awareness and work on improving safety, writes for us and that we are able to share information from the likes of Patricia Jordan, Jean Dodds and Ronald Schultz.
We have written previously on the fact that pets get autism (Healthful Dog 1 December 2014), and will continue to work to raise awareness. Meanwhile, we eagerly look forward to the release of Catherine O’Driscoll’s next book.
The maximum recommendation of oral mercury ingestion is based on Methyl Mercury and set at 1.6 µg per kilogram of bodyweight, this is set from human consumption, but as tests in the ‘30s showed, this may not be relevant for dogs.
- Dog and Cat vaccines are generally 1ml
- According to the FDA pet vaccines contain 1 microgram (µg) of Thimerosal or less.
Thimerosal is 50% Ethyl Mercury, therefore based on these statistics a pet weighing 0.3kg or more, should have no issue with 1 vaccine. However, as we know, more than one is generally given at a time.
- 0.5µg of Ethyl Mercury per vaccine
- Ethyl Mercury converts to Inorganic Mercury at twice the rate of Methyl Mercury
= 1µg per vaccine.
- It’s 50 times more toxic
= 50µg per vaccine
- And when combined with aluminium (connected to auto-immunity & Alzheimer’s) is 6 times more corrosive
= 300µg per vaccine
- When combined with Testosterone the risks are 4 fold (Boyde, 2005)
So for a healthy pet, to be able to cope with the Mercury levels in 1ml of one vaccine, according to science based on a different form of mercury, based on human studies, of oral, not intramuscular or intravenous administration, it would have to weigh:
Female: 187.5kg Male: 750 Kg
How much does your dog or cat weigh?
The body can excrete Mercury with the aid of the antioxidant Glutathione (Pompella et al. 2003), the issue with those susceptible to Autism is that their glutathione production is very low, and is lowered still by the presence of mercury. Due to the mode of action of glutathione, a glutathione supplement does not work, you need to increase the body’s natural production.
The best way we know of doing this is by taking/giving the supplement ASEA, which increases glutathione production by between 500 and 800% with radox signalling molecules.
ASEA is available via our website.
