Autism Watch: 2007

No mercury in mascara, but yes in flu shots?

Posted on: December 14, 2007

The contradiction here just seems so bad, I don’t understand why anyone can get away with still putting thimerasol (ethyl-mercury) in flu shots if articles such as this one carry quotes like this: “Mercury does cause neurological damage to people even in tiny quantities,” said Sen. John Marty, the Democrat from Roseville who sponsored the ban.

Mercury in Mascara? Minn. law bans it  (Yahoo news, A.P.)

So I can’t put mercury on my lashes, but I should inject it into my body to possibly prevent the small possibility of a bout with a slightly possibly serious illness? Hmmmm.
