Thimerosal linked to immune system ills (Mercury in Vaccinations)

The vaccine component has been suspected in autism, but study is no 'smoking gun' to UCD expert.

In a study sure to fuel the controversy about the role of childhood vaccines in autism, scientists at UC Davis have found that a preservative used in some vaccines can disrupt the immune system, at least in mice. For full story:

Join the "mercury generation" march at Washington D.C. April 6th.

March being held on April 6, 2006 in Washington, D.C. The message: "Autism is Preventable, Autism is Treatable" - especially when it is vaccine-induced - is
a message that should be heeded by pediatricians, public health officials, and drug companies selling vaccines. Parents of vaccine injured children and healthy children alike will not abandon their children to
one-size-fits-all vaccine policies and
federal regulatory agencies which consider some children expendable for the "greater good." NVIC urges all concerned citizens, who want to support truth and freedom when it comes to vaccine policies to come to Washington, D.C.
on April 6 and make their voices heard (
http://www.themercurygenerationmarch.org ). NVIC co-founders will be at the march and will attend the Defeat
Autism Now (DAN) Conference being held that weekend
http://www.danconference.com . NVIC President Barbara Loe Fisher will speak at the
DAN conference. Mercury Generation March Update Only 16 days until rally day! There's still time to get good air fares under the 14 day deadline, book now. Many recent news stories are in our favor, so let's strike while the iron is hot! From ABC news, Washington: Autism Study Prompts Debate

http://www.a-champ.org/Congressionalletter2-22-06.html Last week, Senator John Kerry used a national platform
to express his concerns about
thimerosal, based on what he's learned
from parents. Read his comments on Imus in the Morning here:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9877519/ Unfortunately, too many of our elected officials still just don't "get it" - and they won't
unless you tell them! Just the day before
Senator Kerry's remarks, the Senate HELP Committee voted down a provision in a new insurance bill (S.1955) that would allow the continuation of state mandates for autism treatment. THE DRUG COMPANIES AND INSURANCE INDUSTRY HAVE THOUSANDS OF LOBBYISTS WORKING AGAINST US. BUT THEY ARE NO MATCH FOR COMMITTED AND UNITED PARENTS. IF YOU AREN'T THERE TO SPEAK
FOR YOUR CHILDREN, THE ONLY VOICES HEARD WILL BE THOSE OF THE CDC, DRUG COMPANIES, AND THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY.
If you are not able to attend The Mercury Generation March, try to schedule a meeting at your representative's local district
office and let's let them know we are not going away. It's time to make our children a priority!
