I don't need to provide any evidence. I didn't make the claims. You did. No one is 100 percent sure about the air your breathe, either. But you have less than any proof at all of your claims yet expect others to have 100 percent? Get real!
"suspected his neurological disorder was due to immunizations." Is not evidence.
Why did they remove Thimerosal? As a precaution and good thing they did because by doing to, the book was closed on Thimerosal as a cause. Hello!
Don't want a vaccine, don't get one. hard to sell corruption and flaws when vaccines are a Choice.

Most of us don't purposely breathe air with poisons in it. You did make the claims injecting the poisons is safe. But if Thimerosal is safe and good for us, why didn't they stick to their CDC studies that it's safe? They still use Thimerosal on some flu vaccinations. Are you slow? I explained that no it's not a choice. For some it is, for some it's not. And Doctors have no choice but to push it, Medical Doctors don't do research, they push what is said by who pays them. They eat too. Most normal people don't look to the Government as our Savior. Because I don't agree with the Obama's on their unhealthy food pyramid pushing grains on us because it helps the American Farmer doesn't mean I hate my Government. I buy dog food that is "grain free", so why would I eat grains? Just because his wife says it's good? You are the perfect example of the term "SHEEP".

I never said what I eat or much about getting vaccines other than it's your choice. So no, I am not a sheep. And any

Don't want to eat some thing, then don't.
Don't want a vaccine, don't get one. Hard to sell corruption and flaws when vaccines are a Choice. No one really cares if you don't ge a vaccine or two but they do care when you attempt to inflict your hate and fear towards your own Government

I asked before sheeple: if Thimerosal is safe and good for us, why didn't they stick to their CDC studies that it's safe? Why would it be removed? That's admitting guilt. Wait to see more lawsuits.

And I asked way before:
Post #15 You still have yet to provide stats of how many pregnant women and children get the flu vaccine to support your claims about ADD and autism.
Post #34 Autism wasn't included in IDEA until the early 1990's, and just where does the rates come from in the USA?? You should know, you're from the USA. What year was PDD-NOS added to the DSM? And how is it that the majority diagnosed in the USA with a spectrum disorder is PDD-NOS???

Removing Thimerosal is or was not an admission of guilt, more so when once it was removed and YEARS later, autism rates never dropped. And predictable yet again! Lawsuits! Odd, where are those lawsuits??? Where did those 5000 lawsuits ever go??? You're just someone who makes claims (scare tactics) and cant back them up. All you want to do is rant about your Government. Move. Don't want a vaccine, yea, quit your job or read your union contract a little better before signing it. Hello.

Let's keep waiting and years from now decide the poisons in the vaccines might not have been a good idea, Fool.

You have a lot of questions, why can't you figure it out? Thimerosal was just removed, if it was safe, it should never have been removed, there must be some controversy over it. Think a little bit.

Thimerosal has been removed from or reduced to trace amounts in all vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years of age and younger, with the exception of inactivated influenza vaccine.

A preservative-free version of the inactivated influenza vaccine (contains trace amounts of thimerosal) is available in limited supply at this time for use in infants, children and pregnant women

depending on the vaccine formulations used and the weight of the infant, some infants could have been exposed to cumulative levels of mercury during the first six months of life that exceeded EPA recommended guidelines for safe intake of methylmercury.

As a precautionary measure, the Public Health Service (including the FDA, National Institutes of Health (NIH), Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics issued two Joint Statements, urging vaccine manufacturers to reduce or eliminate thimerosal in vaccines as soon as possible (CDC 1999) and (CDC 2000). The U.S. Public Health Service agencies have collaborated with various investigators to initiate further studies to better understand any possible health effects from exposure to thimerosal in vaccines.

IN OTHER WORDS IT's dangerous. Or they don't know for sure.

the vaccine schedule for infants expanded in the 1990s to include more vaccines, some of which, including the Hib vaccine, DTaP vaccine and hepatitis B vaccine, could have contained thiomersal. Third, the number of diagnoses of autism grew in the 1990s, leading parents of these children to search for an explanation for the apparent rise in diagnoses, including considering possible environmental factors.[6] The dramatic increase in reported cases of autism during the 1990s and early 2000s is largely attributable to changes in diagnostic practices, referral patterns, availability of services, age at diagnosis, and public awareness,[22] and it is unknown whether autism's true prevalence increased during the period.[21] Nevertheless, some parents believed that there was a growing "autism epidemic" and connected these three factors to conclude that the increase in number of vaccines, and specifically the mercury in thiomersal in those vaccines, were causing a dramatic increase in the incidence of autism

Parental concerns is not evidence. You should had scrolled a little further to the "Rationale for doubting link" heading. And I'll make it easy, here's the link where he got it from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thiomersal_contr...

Who cares now why Thimerosal was removed, the Thimerosal hypothesis has been dead in the water, and resulted in bitterness and threats by anti vaxxers (under the 'Publicity of concern' heading) Don't want vaccines, it's a choice. Don't get one. But you really should be more up to date on the current anti vaxxers conspiracy. Thimerosal aint it.

Right, just don't get a vaccine is being a sheep. Not buying into to your no evidence is just that: Common sense. I don't make choice on fear. Clearly The person from CA does. Must be something with age. Seems Winnipeg and CA have that age thing in common, along with non evidence fear.

If Thimerosal safe, why is there any doubt? It should have never been removed. Let me repeat, I don't get one. Or get the flu. YOu go get them, don't complain when you get Alzheimer's later in life. For a lot of people it's a choice of quitting their careers. So it's not a choice. But we are really proud of your blind faith in the Government. LOL...If unused vials of thimerosal-containing vaccines must be disposed of as hazardous waste because of the mercury content, then why is the American Academy of Pediatrics strongly advocating that thimerosal-containing vaccines continue to be injected into children's bodies?

2-, 4-, and 6-month-old infants are expected to receive vaccines for polio, hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, rotavirus, Haemophilus influenzae type B, and pneumococcal, all during a single well-baby visitóeven though this combination of 8 vaccine doses was never tested in clinical trials.

...Administering six, seven, or eight vaccine doses to an infant during a single physician visit may certainly be more convenient for parentsórather than making additional trips to the doctor's officeóbut evidence of a positive association between infant adverse reactions and the number of vaccine doses administered confirms that vaccine safety must remain the highest priority.

... Since vaccines are administered to millions of infants every year, it is imperative that health authorities have scientific data from synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines that infants are likely to receive; universal vaccine recommendations must be supported by such studies."

We are not just talking about thimerosal in a flu shot, also formaldehyde, Penicillin, sulfa drugs, Aluminum salts, Sugars, gelatin....when youíre sitting there with Alzheimerís, ALS, MS or youíre watching your kid develop seizures or become autistic youíre going to kick yourself in the butt for allowing your child or you yourself receiving it. Itís frightening to me the stuff they put in the vaccine. These diseases, at least in part, are because of vaccines.

Not sure why you're spending so much time trying to convince anyone of your fears. My child already has autism Hello! But it had nothing to do with vaccines. Imagine that. All of this has to do with facts, not your own personal unfounded unproven fears. Every disease pre-existed vaccines. Hello. Millions have had vaccines ever since the 1930's to date, they don't end up with what you're fearfully claiming. As for careers, try a different angel. The majority don't care if they get a vaccine due to working in medical care. If they were as scared as you are, they'd have already quit. And the majority of the population don't work in medical care and this is in fact a topic about children and autism. And try a different angle than blaming parents for their own parental choices. You may not like their choices, bt it's their choice and you nor I will change that.

That means you know for sure why your child has Autism. What was it then since vaccines have been ruled out? It's not being scared, it's being educated. I'm not scared to drink diet soda, I'm aware of it's dangers of prolonged use. Getting a vaccine since the 30's might affect future generations, who knows?

The proportion of children and teens in the U.S. who have a developmental disability such as autism has increased 17% since the late 1990s, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Between 1997 and 2008, the number of children with a disability rose from 8.2 million to roughly 10 million, or more than 15% of all kids between the ages of 3 and 17, the researchers found.

This upward trend has been driven largely by surges in the number of children found to have autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, although the prevalence of stuttering and learning disabilities has also increased.

The reasons for the increases aren't clear

growing use of fertility treatments? Another medical danger.

Food coloring? Another Government approved additive.

I would never eat the Government's nutrition plan, if I did, I too would be fat.
friend of Pharma and pric99 are not intelligent enough to understand that vaccines are experimental and that they have never been perfected. Government allows the ongoing experimentation and the ongoing carnage. That's why government APPEARS clueless. They are completely involved in the crimes against humanity but will tell you they do it for the good of humanity and to save children. Extimates of 70 million autistic persons worldwide will tell you victimization means little to science. They will trumpet the most minor achievement while covering up the crimes.

You forgot age of grandfather, age of mother and father, obese women (doesn't explain thin women who are moms of autistic children) TV, video games, cold mothers, cell phones and more. Its all to deflect blame from the ONLY sensible and likely common denominator that could cause a WORLDWIDE phenomenon of this sort. Sure, it some small part of the world amonst a small group of insolated people, genetics could over decades spread aa unfavorable mutation, but the autism epidemic can't possibly be genetic, but neanderthals like pric99 and friend of pharma are only recently out of the caves.
