I received all of these e-mails, plus enough to make up a future volume of Hate Mail, from two related articles (Immune to Reason and Fear Mongering over Childhood Vaccinations) criticizing what was essentially an effort by environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to expand the fear base of one of his key issues, methyl mercury in such fish as tuna. He figured if he could implicate the ethyl mercury formerly used in the vaccine preservative thimerosal in autism it would support his campaign against methyl mercury, even though the chemicals are far more different than their names would imply to the layman. He failed to create a "grand alliance," but did embarrass rightwing members of the vaccine conspiracy lobby who suddenly found a Kennedy in their fold. As for me, I just made 'em mad as hell.* Why Keep Up with the Issue when You Can Just Attack?
OK, so no link between thimerosal and autism, and very much on point that Kennedy and others are playing fast and loose with facts and confusing mercury types, study results, etc. But that still leaves two points.
*Dear Mr. Colter: *
I Prefer Chicken, Thank You
Wow, Mr. Fumento� You sure are going to be eating crow when the truth about thimerosal being a spark for autism becomes more "mainstream". It really is very obvious. I hope that you are getting all your studies together to "prove" your side (if you are, can you lead me in the direction of these studies)? I write to you with all good intentions, not meant as an attack. Do your homework.

*Dear Ms. Birt: *
*I found that information using Google and it took about a second. But you only access the web to see what the latest vaccine conspiracy sites have to say, as indicated by the entire rest of your letter.

**Another: "If It's on the Web It Must Be True" **
Mr. Fumento, In your recend* [sic] *article I read on Townhall.com, you stated "The clamor has been driven lately primarily by an article from Natural Resources Defense Council (inventors of the Alar scare)."
I beg to differ. There are countless web sites, with reams of documentation by credible medical professionals who have been making the the case for the link between thimerosal and autism as well as a number of other nervous system disorders for years.
*[He then quotes a conspiracy site.] *
CDC Vaccine Data Leads Scientists to Shocking Discovery
The Institute of Medicine held a meeting to review research that has been found, which links thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative in vaccines, and neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. The panel used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Vaccine Datalink, which concluded that children who are given three thimerosal-containing vaccines are 27 times more likely to develop autism than children who receive thimerosol-free* [sic] *vaccines.
Thimerosal has been gradually removed from vaccines (gee, I wonder why) since 1999, however it is still present in some vaccinations, including virtually all flu shots.
During the review, medical experts discussed the results from a study that showed urinary mercury concentrations were six times higher in children with autism, as opposed to normal-age/vaccine matched controls. They also said that they found evidence that suggested the link between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism had a higher risk than that between lung cancer and smoking cigarettes.
Dr. Mercola's Comment:
It is nearly incomprehensible that the well-documented, toxic mercury-containing preservative thimerosal is still in many vaccines, years after federal agencies have mandated that thimerosal be removed from the hepatitis vaccine.
Most people, physicians included, don't understand that the mercury preservative thimerosal is still used in most vaccines and is likely one of the major contributing factors to vaccine toxicity.
Mercury is a potent neurotoxin. Injecting it into a child, whose nervous system is rapidly developing, could have terrible consequences. So, before you decide to vaccinate your children, do them a favor and look into the many risks and side effects associated with common childhood vaccines. Doing so could mean the difference between life and death.
Another essential resource for anyone interested in finding out more about the vaccine issue is "Vaccines: What CDC Documents and Science Reveal," a two-hour video by world-renowned vaccine expert Dr. Sherri Tenpenny.

If you are quoting verbatim from an article in the University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform, that "outbreaks of measles, whooping cough, mumps, rubella and diphtheria are reoccurring" your argument must be seriously flawed.

**How Do You Explain All these Things that Aren't True? **
I would like to comment about this article. Obviously, you haven't read the book Evidence of Harm. If you have, you completely missed the point that parents of ASD kids are NOT anti-vaccine. WE ARE ANTI-THIMEROSAL. There is a BIG difference and apparently, you're too "woefully ignorant" to understand that.
I'd also like to mention the fact that ALL the "studies" you refer to were conducted by people and organizations (CDC, FDA, IOM) that have a gross conflict of interest regarding thimerosal. Are you too "woefully ignorant" to grasp the concept of "covering your ass"? Or do you have a conflict of interest as well?
The new cases of autism, ADHD and ADD have already started to drop since thimerosal-free vaccines have been introduced and "phased in." Oh, right, this must just be a coincidence like all the other pieces of the puzzle. It's just a shame they knew about this and just let a sub-set [sic] of vulnerable children be poisoned. I hope this never happens to one of YOUR loved ones. [omitted] Davis
PS *[sic] *If my son didn't get mercury poisoning from his vaccinations, then where did all this mercury come from?????? And why do most autistics have toxic levels of Mercury???
I won't hold my breath for your answer...........
*Dear Ms. Davis: *
I'm SO glad you PRESUME to know so much about this and yet YOU aren't putting forth any evidence yourself. You think a medical journal should merit some respect just because of the fact it's a "medical journal"? How many times in the past have these so-called expert medical journals had to admit they were WRONG about something? I guess the Agent Orange situation doesn't ring any bells. Not to mention the tobacco debacle. We're all really crazy conspiracy-mongers. Oh and if you re-check your article, you did not say parents were anti-thimerosal, you said they were anti vaccine [sic]. Well obviously, if we were anti-vaccine, our kids would never have been vaccinated in the first place which would mean they would be normal kids. I didn't mention the WHO or any of the European agencies because they're not worth mentioning. The truth will come out about this and when it does, people like you better be ready to make a BIG apology. Look at the stats in CA for your "evidence" about the autism case reductions. You should have done this homework before writing such an inflammatory article without knowing all the facts. Now that most of the thimerosal vaccines have been phased out, CA has seen a steady drop in new cases. All the pieces of this puzzle fit together perfectly. [318 screeching words omitted.] *There is no conspiracy, this originated as a human error and our government has taken drastic steps to cover it up. The pharmacutical *[sic] *companies are being protected by the gov. but they will be held responsible for this. It's all about money. And our children have been the sacrifical *[sic] lambs.
*Right, the IOM report, the Pediatrics review of numerous studies, the WHO findings and the European findings all constitute "putting forth no evidence." *
I've written in one book and a vast number of articles on the alleged illness from Agent Orange. It is just another conspiracy-driven non-entity. Basically you've just cited the Easter Bunny as evidence that Santa Claus exists. *
*I said you were anti-vaccine now; not that you were before your children were vaccinated. It's rather distressing that you can't make that association. *

*Dear Ms. Finney: *
Thanks a lot for using up the world's supply of exclamation marks. As I noted, authorities throughout the world have indeed found that babies can easily deal with the tiny bits of chemicals present in childhood vaccinations. I specifically referred to thimerosal, but researchers have looked at the total load that children receive and found it to be harmless. I know you conspiracy mongers absolutely love it that some vaccines contain phenoxyethanol, which because it contains ethanol makes it an ingredient in some antifreeze mixtures. But that ingredient was also discovered half a century ago to be anti-microbial. That's why it's contained in more cosmetic products than a person can name. *
*I do agree that children don't need the HBV vaccine because it protects against a disease you get in this country only through abusing injected drugs and through sex. That said, I made sure I got mine before I visited any Third World countries because their blood supply is rife with it. I think if you did a bit more research and used a little less exclamatory punctuation you might be edified. But that's not really what you want, is it? *
**A Pseudo-Thinker **
You wrote the following in your recent article:
"Never mind that production of childhood vaccines with thimerosal ended several years ago..."
So, in essence, you really are saying," Never mind about a generation of children who have been affected by the thimerosal in vaccines, it's been taken out"....
Okay, even if that were true, (which you and I know is NOT the case) then it would be solving only one part of the problem...i.e., future injuries...
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN INJURED...your flip statement dismisses these children as some sort of "collateral damage" ....my son is NOT a statistic to be ignored....too bad that you don't understand the love that we have for our children...if you did, you would know that the battle you are engaged in is sealed....THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT AND AMERICA WILL KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO A GENERATION OF CHILDREN....AND, GASP, THE MAJORITY OF THEM WILL HAVE COMPASSION FOR OUR CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES....

Sorry, but you're no [sic] *presenting any facts that I as a parent can grasp. For example, Methyl [sic] versus Ethyl [sic]* mercury. There's no EPA regulation for Ethyl [sic] [As I stated.]. It's far more toxic than methyl and the body absorbs ethyl far more readily. *[190 words omitted.] *

**Temporally Challenged **
No one wants vaccines eliminated, just the thimerosal in them. In 1999 a voluntary withdraw of thimerosal was requested to start phasing it out. Some vaccines still had high levels through 2002. It's unfortunate someone gave you a computer that only lets you type in, and not research to pull information out.
*Dear Marlene: *
I'm slightly impressed that you responded. I don't want to argue, I only hope you are as diligent with finding out facts. Just curious, why do you think so many parents "lie" and say their child changed, regressed, lost skills, withdrew from reality just after being vaccinated?
*If they're "lying," they're also lying to themselves. They're grasping for a reason that their child has autism while none of the neighbors' children do. Then they read or hear that "experts" have proclaimed that vaccines did it. They don't have any other explanation (nobody has the least idea what causes autism) so they grasp onto this. Fact is, childhood vaccinations aren't given all at once but are spread out. All these parents are really saying is the vaccinations came first, the autism second. That's as logical and as medically sound as a Catholic parent (whose child would normally be baptized shortly after birth) blaming the priest for autism that showed up 2 years later. *

It was clear you didn't like what I wrote but rather than make the least effort to question the message, you saw no option but to call into question the integrity of the messenger. It didn't work. *

So thank you for the comic relief, and have a great 4th of July!
*Dear Ms. Daniel: *
**My Son, the Landfill **
Michael, If you bothered to check the package insert or PDR of the 2004-2005 Flu vaccine or tetanus booster, you would see the concentration of thimerosal listed at 1:10,000. This is the same concentration as about 50 childhood vaccines used from 1989-2002 (the Hep. B vaccine only contained 1:20,000). A 1:10,000 solution is equal to 100,000 parts per billion (ppb). My fifth grader can do the math. Now, since thimerosal is 50% mercury, that would put the mercury concentration at 50,000 ppb. In Wisconsin, if you want to dispose of a liquid waste and it contains more than 200 ppb of mercury, it must be disposed of in a hazardous waste lanfill* [sic]. We are injecting newborns, infants and pregnant women with levels of mercury 2500 *[sic] higher than what is classified as hazardous waste. Myself* [sic]* and the 7500 parents I correspond with [He clearly types and reads faster than I do.] *would like you or some expert from the CDC, FDA, AAP, IOM, NIH or Pharma *[sic] to explain why you think this is smart.
*Dear Mr. Wagnitz: *
Thank you for your concession that even when the recommended childhood vaccines contained thimerosal it was an incredibly minute amount. Flu shots and tetanus vaccines are not normally considered among the childhood vaccines, though a small child can certainly receive one. They can receive almost any type of shot, but this does not automatically classify all shots as pediatric. I am very sorry that you see fit to compare humans to landfills, but apart from the obvious there are major differences. If you bothered to go to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website you'd see absolutely no discussion of the form of mercury that comes from thimerosal, ethyl mercury. Rather it's clear that its main concern is elemental mercury (the stuff formerly found in thermometers) and secondarily methyl mercury. I described the differences in my piece; you ignored them because they didn't suit your purposes. The EPA doesn't even list ethyl mercury on its website of POSSIBLY toxic substances, but methyl and elemental mercury are both there. Another difference between landfills and humans is that landfills are expressly made to permanently contain contents; humans excrete mercury from essentially the moment they absorb it. Indeed, one of the main differences between ethyl and methyl mercury is that the ethyl form is excreted so much more quickly. (Also, Wisconsin uses ridiculously high standards compared to most other states.) *
*Finally, I thank you for the concession that those who actually know something about toxicology are all on one side of this issue while those whose expertise extends to the ability to use a pocket calculator are for some reason on the other. *
**Fecal Follies **
Well, Mr. Fumento, what do you say to an educated parent, a pharmacist with 15 years of clinical experience, who is chelating her autistic daughter and has evidence (lab tests) of mercury and other heavy metals now being excreted via her urine and feces in the elevated ranges??

**Who Are You Calling a Conspiracy Theorist? (Part XVII) **
To the Editor of the Rocky Mountain News:
Your July 5th piece on vaccinations is so and error ridden [sic] and so hysterically pro [sic] government/corporate propaganda that it is hard to believe that ANY news source would print it, even those that are blatantly beholden to the pharmaceutical industry.
Contrary to your ridiculous statement that thimerosal was taken out of vaccines "several years ago" it is STILL in some vaccines, often along with aluminum, beta-propiolactone (known to cause cancer), formaldehyde, polysorbate 80 (known to cause cancer)* [It's actually a harmless emulsifier commonly used in ice cream, salad dressing, and to improve volume and texture in baked goods.]*, tri(n)butylphosphate (suspected nerve poison), phenol/phenoxyethanol (known as anti-freeze) and a plethora of other toxic adjuvants.
Most flu vaccines contain 25 mcg. [Do you think this lady has the least idea what a microgram is?] of mercury and are now being given to pregnant women and babies. According to Dr. Hugh Fudenberg [Perhaps she means "Elmer Fuddenberg."], world renowned *[sic] *immunologist, adults vaccinated with the flu vaccine, 4 to 5 times within 5 years, have a 10-fold increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. He attributes this to the mercury and aluminum in the vaccine.
Dr. Russell Blaylock, renowned [sic] neurosurgeon, will tell you in detail just how the adjuvants in vaccines damage the immune system, causing ADD, ADHD, autism, alzheimer's [sic] and a host of other neurological disorders. There are many independent researchers who can provide you with truthful, accurate data on just how vaccines permanently damage our nation's children - and adults.
My college educated children and their associates will not allow their children to be vaccinated because they have carefully accessed accurate information on the real dangers of vaccines. These intelligent, caring people are not "conspirators". They are simply better informed than those parents who allow their children to be injected with poisons that, by the manufacturers' own claims, offer little if any protection from anything. [As you might guess�] If you want to find a conspiracy look no further than those who poison our children for corporate profit, along with those government agencies that support them.
