Still no pro-vacs. Why don't they want to talk about mercury and autism?

Old article but a good one to make a great point of how anti vaxxers make everything into a vaccine topic.

This study had nothing at all to do with vaccines, but mercury poisoning which is not the same as thimerosal. Back in the day, teething powder contained mercury which had more actual mercury in it than vaccines had thimerosal. The study actually mentions teething powder and mercury (hg). Plus the exposures weren't the same for each child, since some parents used more teething powder than others. This makes it impossible to claim a susceptibility group as the children who showed signs of pink disease could very likely be the ones who had higher levels of mercury exposure.

Nice try to link it to vaccines. Helps to read the actual study before making claims of what the study is.

Nice grown up way to admit you never read the study, and that it had nothing to do with vaccines.

The link is, that vaccines poison babies. Mercury poisons everyone. Its old news. Pharma implied mercury has health benefits.

Not according to this study. It shows no such link. You need to get your chemical compounds straight. You cant compare this study of hg mercury that was in teething powder, which was never in vaccines to thimerosal which was in vaccines.
