SafeMinds Asks, "Is Mercury a Common Factor?"

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two new reports announced last week call into question the safety of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) decade's old policy of routinely administering multiple vaccines concurrently.

Mitochondrial Disease in Autism Spectrum Disorder Patients, published last week in PLOS One by investigators from the Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins Kennedy Krieger Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital concluded that disturbance in mitochondria (energy production cells) is an underlying mechanism in a subset of individuals with autism. "There might be no difference between the inflammatory or catabolic stress of vaccinations and that of common childhood diseases" they said, and "large, population-based studies will be needed to identify a possible relationship of vaccination with autistic regression in persons with mitochondrial cytopathies."

In a November 26th response to Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney concerning adverse vaccine events, Colonel Renata Engler of the DOD Vaccine Healthcare Center commented on their collaboration with the CDC, "We have preliminary findings from one of our many on-going research studies that suggest a relationship between adverse events and multiple vaccinations exist." She added, "The recommendation for more research on subpopulation risk factors in relation to multiple vaccine combinations has been included in the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Report on Multiple Vaccines."

Regarding findings by Elliott and colleagues in August, the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation stated that mitochondrial disorder is likely to be at the core of many health conditions including autism. These latest findings provide additional evidence that the link between autism and mitochondrial disorders is not "rare," as government officials characterized it after the Poling family was recently compensated for their daughter's vaccine injury.

SafeMinds Vice President Lyn Redwood stated, "Research clearly demonstrates that mercury in vaccines causes mitochondrial damage, yet mercury-containing vaccines continue to be administered to infants and pregnant women despite the IOM's recommendation that these populations not be exposed." SafeMinds believes the government should initiate a comprehensive study of vaccinated/unvaccinated populations examining all health outcomes, vaccine components and synergistic interactions.

Environmental mercury exposure has also been linked to mental retardation, Attention Deficit Disorder and autism. SafeMinds President Theresa Wrangham added, "Mercury in all forms is neurotoxic and is increasingly impacting public health. Congressional action is needed to shift industry from its use in medicine, utilities and consumer products."
