The US Center for Disease Control (CDC) conducted a study finding a “7.6-fold increased risk of Language delay (an Autism criteria) from exposure to Thimerosal during infancy.”
Yet, CDC now contradicts their own study stating officially that there is “no relationship between Thimerosal containing vaccines and autism rates in children.”
Its introduction begins with —
“There are over 165 studies that have focused on Thimerosal, an organic-mercury (Hg) based compound, used as a preservative in many childhood vaccines, and found it to be harmful. Of these, 16 were conducted to specifically examine the effects of Thimerosal on human infants or children with reported outcomes of death; acrodynia; poisoning; allergic reaction; malformations; auto-immune reaction; Well’s syndrome; developmental delay; and neurodevelopmental disorders, including tics, speech delay, language delay, attention deficit disorder, and autism.”
“In contrast, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that Thimerosal is safe and there is “no relationship between [T]himerosal[-]containing vaccines and autism rates in children.”
“This is puzzling because, in a study conducted directly by CDC epidemiologists, a 7.6-fold increased risk of autism from exposure to Thimerosal during infancy was found.”
“The CDC’s current stance that Thimerosal is safe and that there is no relationship between Thimerosal and autism is based on six specific published epidemiological studies coauthored and sponsored by the CDC. The purpose of this review is to examine these six publications and analyze possible reasons why their published outcomes are so different from the results of investigations by multiple independent research groups over the past 75+ years.”

And the paper itself
Editor’s note: Thimerosal is now allegedly greatly reduced in Vaccines (except for Influenza), but it admittedly often remains in the vaccines in trace amounts.
Update: The original study finding a seven fold increase in harm, has had followup that suggests the original finding was not real. However, some analysts show how the followup data was cherry picked to exclude the original finding.
“… study, published last fall in Pediatrics, CDC researchers examined records at three health maintenance organizations (HMOs) and came up with inconsistent findings. The authors first looked for links between neurodevelopmental disorders and thimerosal in children in two HMOs who were born between 1992 and 1999. In one HMO, thimerosal exposure at 3 months was significantly associated with tics. At the second HMO, an increased risk of language delay was associated with cumulative thimerosal exposure at 3 months.”
“If you were informed that mercury in vaccines might double the risk of your son developing motor tics, increase his risk of “phonic tics” by nearly two-and-a-half times, and possibly cause speech, attention or behavioral problems in school, would you still allow him to be injected with the heavy metal — which, by the way, is 100 times more neurotoxic than that lead coating on his Chinese toys?”
