    Autism is a man-made disease (Part 3 of 3)

    Posted by .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
    Saturday, March 26, 2016 8:10 am Email this article

    This is part 3 of 3 of the article about autism being a man-made disease.

    Aluminum Increases the Toxicity of Mercury 6-fold according to Boyd Haley, PhD

    Boyd Haley, PhD notes that aluminum, which is found in many vaccines, increases toxicity of mercury, so vaccines which contain aluminum will make the problem worse.

    Dr. Haley noted that when they gave enough mercury to kill less than 10% of the rats, when they added aluminum, 60% of rats died.

    In other words, aluminum makes mercury at least 6-times (6X) more toxic / more lethal.

    There are many things that increase the toxicity of mercury (synergistic toxicities) including aluminum, cadmium, nickel, copper and perhaps lead according to Chris Shade, PhD from QuickSilver Scientific, who is an expert on mercury toxicity.

    Aluminum is Toxic notes Suzanne Humphries, MD

    Suzanne Humphries, MD has also talked a lot about the toxicity of aluminum in vaccines.

    For example, see her YouTube video titled “Dr Suzanne Humphries. Aluminum is toxic to all life forms: The case against aluminum in vaccines” which is posted here.

    Aluminum is also neurotoxic.

    Aluminum is added to many vaccines to increase the immune response, which is called an adjuvant, as noted by Suzanne Humphries, MD and others.

    And more vaccines are being given to children than ever before.

    49 Doses of 14 Vaccines Given To Children By Age 6 Years

    A 2011 article by Dr. Mercola notes that…

    Even though the government acknowledges that vaccines have dangerous side effects, the CDC continues to recommend giving children 49 doses of 14 different vaccines by the time he/she turns 6.

    Most babies the in the U.S. get more than two dozen doses of vaccines by the time they are one year old.

    A new study finds developed nations, who give their infants the most vaccines in the first year of life, have the worst infant mortality rates.

    Prevalence of Autism Increased 111-Fold in the US in 35 years, from 1975 to 2015

    The prevalence of autism in the US has gone from 1 in 5000 in 1975 to 111 in 5000 (1 in 45) in 2015, a 111-fold increase in the last 40 years.

    While the number of vaccines given to children up the age of 6 according to the vaccine schedule has increased from 13 in 1973 to 36 in 2013… whille the rate of autism has increased dramatically.

    See the chart of the Vaccine Schedule History on VacTruth.org here.

    Imagine that.

    This is more evidence that supports the hypothesis that vaccines (and mercury from a mother’s amalgams and mercury from other sources such as from coal-fired power plants) are responsible for the astonishing rise in autism over the past 30 years.

    Dr. Julie Gerberding, Former Director of the CDC, Was Named President of Merck’s Vaccine Division in 2009 After it was Revealed that the CDC had Dramatically Overestimated the Number of Swine Flu Cases

    On Oct 21, 2009 Sharyl Attkisson for CBS News reported that the CDC had dramatically overestimated—lied about—the number of cases of Swine Flu, and most suspected cases were NOT swine flu or even the flu at all!

    Then on Dec 21, 2009, Merck announced that Dr. Julie Gerberding, former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was named president of Merck & Co Inc’s vaccine division in 2009.

    The article says, “I am very excited to be joining Merck where I can help to expand access to vaccines around the world,” added Gerberding, who will head up the company’s $5 billion global vaccine business that includes shots to prevent chickenpox, cervical cancer and pneumonia.”

    Imagine that.

    A government worker getting rewarded by a drug company for helping to promote their drugs while they were working for the government.

    What do you call somebody like that?

    6 or more dental amalgams / mercury fillings in pregnant mother increases child’s risk of autism 3.2 times

    Mercury from other sources also increases the risk of autism in children.

    A 2009 study by Geier, Kern and Geier found that children born to mothers who had 6 or more dental amalgams were 3.2 times more likely to be diagnosed with autism (severe) compared to being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (mild) compared to mothers who had 5 or fewer dental amalgams.

    8 or more dental amalgams / mercury fillings in pregnant mother increases child’s risk of autism 4.4 times

    The same study found that children born to mothers who had 8 or more dental amalgams were 4.4 times more likely to be diagnosed with autism (severe) compared to being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (mild) compared to mothers who had 5 or fewer dental amalgams.

    The Drug Companies Have Been Lying To Us Again

    We have been lied to by the drug companies and the researchers paid by the drug companies once again.

    Why am I not surprised?

    As I wrote in 2014, I no longer believe ANY research sponsored by the drug companies nor ANY papers written by people paid by the drug companies.

    I know, in advance, what every study and every review paper written about drugs that is sponsored by the drug companies or written by researchers paid by the drug companies is going to say before I read it.

    EVERY drug study and EVERY review paper of drugs written by people with financial ties to the drug companies are going to say the exact same thing, that is, “These drugs are safe and effective and more people should use them.”

    Of course the same thing is true for studies of vaccines and papers written about vaccines written by people with financial ties to the drug companies.

    I know, in advance, that EVERY study and EVERY paper written about vaccines that are sponsored by the drug companies or written by people paid by the drug companies is going to say the same thing, that is, “These vaccines are safe and effective and more people should use them.”

    ‘What the drug industry publishes, even in the New England Journal of Medicine, should be viewed as an ADVERTISEMENT and nothing else’, Prof. Peter Gotzsche, MD

    If you have any doubts that the drug companies are lying to us, just look at some of the articles about what Prof. Peter Gotzsche, MD has found which are posted here.

    For example, Prof. Gotzsche has said, “What the drug industry publishes, even in the New England Journal of Medicine, should be viewed as an ADVERTISEMENT and nothing else.”

    The same is true for what they say about vaccines.

    Why I am Interested in This; I Recently Found Out That I am Suffering from Mercury Toxicity

    All of this started for me over the past 8 months (starting in Aug 2015) when I was trying to figure out why I was feeling so horrible, the worst I had ever felt in my life—experiencing anxiety, depression, insomnia, a numbness (peripheral neuropathy) in the bottom of my left foot, a complete loss of appetite (having to force myself to eat), muscular weakness and fatigue, a decreased sense of smell, as well as other symptoms which I have had for as long as 29 years (since 1987) including food allergies, digestive problems, gut irritation, thyroid problems (feeling cold and having a low body temperature)— when I found out that ALL of these problems can be caused by mercury toxicity.

    My journey started on Oct 31, 2015 after I did a Google search to see if mercury (from a mouthful of dental amalgams) had anything to do with the anxiety and insomnia that I was experiencing.

    I read an article by Mark Hyman, MD who said, “I felt weak, tired, and couldn’t think. I had muscle pain and twitches, insomnia, digestive problems, food allergies, depression, and anxiety. And it was only by discovering high levels of mercury in my hair and urine — and slowly detoxifying myself — that I was able to get better.”

    I thought, “These symptoms that he is describing sound exactly like me!”

    This started me on my journey.

    Based on the results of a Mercury Tri-Test from QuickSilver Scientific which separates out the different forms of mercury in our bodies based on a test of hair, blood and urine, and compares the amount in the blood to how much is coming out in the hair and urine, I found out that I had very high levels of inorganic mercury—at the 90th percentile—which comes mostly from dental amalgams / mercury fillings (although methylmercury from fish can also be demethylated and turn into inorganic mercury as well, as noted by Chris Shade, PhD), and very high levels of methylmercury, which comes mostly from fish, although mercury from mercury fillings can also be methylated into methylmercury by bacteria in the gut —well above the 95th percentile.

    Ethylmercury (Thimerosal) from vaccines is oxidized in the body to inorganic mercury according to Chris Shade, PhD, however, I have not had a vaccine for probably 30 years or more, so the high levels of inorganic mercury in my body is likely to have come from dental amalgams / mercury fillings only, and not from vaccines.

    1,000 Hours Of Research On Mercury Toxicity So Far

    As of mid-June 2016, I have spent over 1,000 hours researching mercury toxicity, listening to every lecture and interview that I can find of Boyd Haley, PhD, retired professor of Chemistry from the University of Kentucky who has been studying the issue of mercury toxicity since 1987; Chris Shade, PhD from Quicksilver Scientific, who developed a mercury test to separate out the different forms of mercury and developed a mercury detox program; Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD who has been helping people detox from mercury, lead and other heavy metals for 30 years; Sherri Tenpenny, DO who has been studying the problems with vaccines since 2000 (16 years at this point) and has written a book about this called Saying No to Vaccines: A Resource Guide for All Ages; and Suzanne Humphries, MD who has been studying the problems with vaccines since about 2011 and has written a book about this called Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and The Forgotten History.

    This led me to the problems caused by mercury and aluminum in vaccines.

    But first let me tell you about the lies that we have been told about dental amalgams (mercury fillings) which are similar to the lies we are being told about vaccines.

    Lies from The American Dental Association about mercury fillings (dental amalgams)

    For a long time, The American Dental Association said that mercury does NOT leak out of dental amalgams (mercury fillings).

    But this was a lie.

    Mercury Vapor Is Coming Off Of Your Dental Amalgams Every Second Of Every Day!

    Mercury vapor is coming off of your dental amalgams every second of every day, and 80% of this vapor is absorbed by the lungs and, at that point, can go anywhere in the body including into the brain according to Chris Shade, PhD and Boyd Haley, PhD.

    The American Dental Association now says that only a tiny amount of mercury leaks out of dental amalgams (mercury fillings) and that it is harmless.

    But it turns out that this is just another lie.

    100-600 Times More Mercury Coming Off Of Dental Amalgams Than The American Dental Association Says

    It turns out that the amount of mercury coming off of dental amalgams (mercury fillings) is 100-600 times higher than what The American Dental Association tells us as noted by Boyd Haley, PhD, retired Professor of Chemistry from the University of Kentucky, who has been researching and talking about the dangers of dental amalgams (mercury fillings) since 1987, and has also been talking about the dangers of mercury (Thimerosal) in vaccines as well as the dangers of aluminum in vaccines for a long time.

    The American Dental Association measured the amount of mercury coming out in the urine rather than measuring the amount of mercury vapor coming off of amalgams

    The way The American Dental Association makes this claim and why it is so wrong, as explained by Boyd Haley, PhD, is that they are referring to research which measured the amount of mercury coming out in the urine instead of directly measuring the amount of mercury vapor coming off of dental amalgams / mercury fillings, which Haley has done.

    It’s another lie to protect financial interests of dentists and The American Dental Association, and so that they don’t have to admit that they have been wrong forever for fear of losing their credibility.

    In the same way, we have been lied to about all of these drugs that we are told to take every day that are supposed to make us happier, healthier and live longer.

    In the same way, we are being lied to about vaccines being safe and effective for the sake of drug companies making money and the fear of the CDC and the pro-vaccine researchers losing credibility for having been wrong about vaccines for so long.

    It’s just another lie for the sake of making money.

    Mercury Fillings Known To Be Unsafe Since 1843

    It turns out that in 1843 that the American Society of Dental Surgeons found dental amalgams (mercury fillings) were NOT safe, and they referred to them as “poison metal fillings”, and they considered placing dental amalgams (mercury fillings) in a person’s mouth to be malpractice.

    In other words, they have known that mercury fillings (dental amalgams) are unsafe for 173 years and yet The American Dental Association continues to claim that dental amalgams (mercury fillings) are safe!

    This was described in the documentary “Evidence of Harm” which is about the dangers of dental amalgams to patients, staff and the environment.

    I Now Realize the Same Thing Is True For Vaccines; They Are Lying To Us To Make Money

    I now realize that the same thing that happened with dental amalgams—having told us that they are safe and the mercury does not leak out of the amalgams, when this is not true—and the same thing that happened with all of these drugs people are told to take every day — drugs for blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, depression, anxiety, sleep, bone-building and acid reflux — having told us that they will make us happier, healthier and live longer is not true either.

    The same thing is also true for vaccines.

    They have told us that they are safe and effective, but they are not.

    It’s just another lie to make money.

    A Better Way To Get Mercury Out of the Body

    There is a better way to get mercury out of the body than chelation according to Chris Shade, PhD, founder of QuickSilver Scientific.

    I have no relationship with the company.

    I am simply doing their mercury detox program after finding out in Dec 2015 that I was suffering from mercury toxicity from having a mouthful of dental amalgams and eating lots of sushi and fish based on the results of a Mercury Tri-Test that was developed by Chris Shade.

    His Mercury Tri-Test is also a better way of determining if you have mercury toxicity than doing a hair analysis or simply looking at mercury levels in hair, blood or urine, and is better than the traditional DMPS challenge test, and the Mercury Tri-Test does not burden the body the way the DMPS challenge test does.

    There are many videos on YouTube of Chris Shade explaining why his detox system is better than chelation and why his Mercury Tri-Test is better than the DMPS challenge test. See here.

    I have watched every video and listened to every lecture and interview that I can find of Chris Shade, PhD.

    I have also listened to every lecture and interview that I can find of Deitrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD who has been helping people detox from mercury and lead and aluminum for 30 years.

    I have also listened to every video, lecture and interview that I can find of Boyd Haley, PhD, who has been studying the toxic effects of mercury since 1987, and giving lectures around the world about mercury toxicity since 1991.

    I have listened to most of these lectures and interviews multiple times while trying to figure out what I needed to do in order to get the mercury out of my body, which is why I am also interested in the topic of vaccines.
