10 Oct (AHRP) – Three newly published peer-reviewed studies confirm that infants exposed to mercury in utero suffer serious harm–including death.
1. A study in the journal, Human & Experimental Toxicology (Oct. 2012) examined FDA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database and found an increase in reports of spontaneous abortion and stillbirths following pregnant woman’s vaccination against the flu and H1N1.
2. A report in the journal Toxicological & Environmental Chemistry (2012) found that the data “demonstrated that Hg [mercury] exposures, particularly during the first trimester of pregnancy, at well-established dose/weight ratios produced severe damage to humans including death.”
3. A third report in the journal Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine (a JAMA Network journal) reports that prenatal exposure to mercury and fish is linked to behavior associated with Attention Deficit Hypertension Disorder.
The evidence is clear that mercury is toxic for children’s neurological development.
