10 Times More Thimerosal in Canadian
Non-Adjuvanted H1N1 Vaccine
According to this Public Health Agency of Canada website, the
non-adjuvanted vaccine [ie: the H1N1 vaccine without the ASO3
(otherwise known as squalene-oil-water adjuvant)] will contain
10 times the amount of Thimerosal as in the adjuvanted vaccine
presently being distributed. This, they want to give to young
kids and pregnant women.
The excuse for this allowable mercury in the vaccine, is that
it is different from the mercury you get in food, like tuna fish;
and, it amounts to less than the daily allowable limit (from food).
I suggest anybody who wants to learn more about how the type
of mercury in Thimerosal is more toxic than the mercury from consuming
fish, please read the book Evidence of Harm by David
Kirby. By the way, when you eat the fish, you only absorb a very
small portion of the mercury. When you inject it into your muscle
of course, you have absorbed 100% of the dose.
Q4. Is it true that there is mercury in the vaccine? How
Both vaccines contain a small amount of thimerosal. Thimerosal
is a form of mercury used in the H1N1 flu vaccine to stabilize
it and maintain its quality during storage. Thimerosal is a different
form of mercury than the mercury known to cause health problems.
The amount in the H1N1 adjuvanted flu vaccine is much less than
the daily limit recommended for environmental exposure to mercury.
For example, there is significantly less mercury in the vaccine
than you would find in a can of tuna fish.
Q5. Is it true that there is 10 times more mercury in the unadjuvanted
vaccine? How can that be safe for pregnant women?
Yes, the unadjuvanted vaccine does contain 50 ug of thimerosal
while the adjuvanted vaccine has only 5 ug of thimerosal. The
50 ug remains within the daily limit recommended for environmental
exposure to mercury. Theres significantly less mercury in
the vaccine than you would find in a can of tuna fish.
Thimerosal is approximately 50% ethyl mercury by weight. 50 ug
(micrograms) of Thimerosal equals 25 micrograms mercury.
