1. Toxic Mercury – Evidence of a Strong Poison
NB: Boldfaced emphasis in the quotes is mine throughout this page…
To Be Toxic or Not To Be Toxic…?
If you are inclined to accept what the mainstream media is telling you as being the gospel truth, then you’d probably look favorable towards having mercury in your body:
Unfortunately however, it won’t be the first time that the mainstream media deceives and lies to its viewers. Mercury is anything but good for you. Here is a short video that clearly demonstrates, on a microscopic level, what mercury does to your nerve-cells or neurons:
So this latter video presents us with clear evidence that mercury acts as a neuro-toxin. Let’s try and reconcile this with the claims made in the former video. There it is claimed that mercury is responsible for “improved behavior and mental performance” in vaccinated children. In order for this claim to have validity to it, then by necessity the kids who sustained brain damage through mercury exposure must somehow show “improved behavior and mental performance”. What I would like to know is, since when is the sustenance of brain damage in any way a good thing? Unless, of course it’s considered desirable to produce behaviorally modified brain damaged children.
Proof of Toxicity – Material Safety Data Sheets
So, all fairytales aside, let’s first establish with certainty that mercury is indeed a neurotoxin and as such exposure should be minimized no matter how strongly the mainstream media is trying to convince you that it’s good for ya and yer kids.
The first entry yields (Google):
Again try for a minute to reconcile the slogan “may cause permanent central nervous system damage, fatigue, weight loss, tremors, personality changes” with the claim that mercury “improves behavior and mental performance.” Can you say schizophrenic?
On another MSDS we find:
So what exactly is a S7 poison?
The toxicity and hazardous nature of mercury is further evidenced by this quote found on an official British regulatory website:
Mercurial Salts and Organic Mercury
Unfortunately elemental mercury is not the only form of mercury human beings are exposed to. Mercurial salts (inorganic mercury) and organically bound mercury also find their way into your system and prove to be hundreds of times more toxic than elemental mercury.
Here’s the MSDS of methyl mercury chloride:
On another MSDS we find:
Given its extreme toxicity, the WHO recommends a remarkably low Provisional Tolerable Weekly Intake of methylmercury:
Mercury in Vaccines
Here are two quotes from the CDC and the National Academies stating that thimerosal in vaccines is basically all fine and dandy:
Regarding the first quote, if “no harmful effects have been reported from thimerosal at doses used in vaccines” then, while reading the next sentence, why promote the push to eliminate it from vaccines? The quote of and by itself by its mere formulation is oxymoronic and therefore suspicion raising.
Here’s a MSDS of thimerosal:
Here’s a reference by a manufacturer of thimerosal ( Sigma and Aldrich ), given in the below picture, that provides it with T+,N hazard coding.
So what’s the meaning of these codes? The pictograms and hazard codes page indicates that T+ stands for “Extremely toxic” and N stands for “Dangerous for the environment.” Does that sound like stuff you want to have injected straight into your system?
When I was about to finish this blog, I stumbled on an interesting abstract of a new peer-reviewed scientific study investigating thimerosal neurotoxicity. Here’s an excerpt of its abstract that states quite clearly that thimerosal induces autism-like neurotoxicity:
Now compare this new find with the embarrassing position the CDC still maintains:
Somebody better tell the CDC that thimerosal in vaccines is bad news after all. I doubt if they care to listen though.
In reference to the above new study one may argue that the study is an in vitro study and that to have a more accurate reflection on reality one should consider an in vivo study. I think it can be stated with confidence that the practical difference between an in vitro experiment and an in vivo experiment in this case is the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which if working to satisfaction should be able to obstruct thimerosal present in the blood from reaching the brain and so prevent it from doing damage.
This assumption however is obviously unjustified if and when the BBB is not working properly and as such is incapable of blocking mercury from entering the brain. So when is the BBB compromised? For one, the BBB is not fully functional in infants. Other reasons are given by Dr Blaylock:
Therefore, for the many people who have an impaired BBB, exposure to intravenous thimerosal makes them vulnerable to develop autism-like disorders or symptoms.

Qualitative Toxicity Comparison with “Safe” Substances
In spite of all this evidence of the inherent toxicity of mercury and mercurial compounds, a skeptical mind may argue that any substance when exposed to in excess will be toxic to the human body. Let’s factor in that notion by comparing the MSDS of substances that are known to be beneficial for you. The preferred choice substances are vitamins (like ascorbic acid – vit. C). As such one is able to set an acceptable ‘baseline’ of toxicity, below which is acceptable and beyond which is not so acceptable, when seeking to maintain health.
Here’s the relevant excerpt of a MSDS of…
From these MSD sheets we can infer that the toxic effects of common or benign substances is mild irritation (at best) plus a possible belly ache. A careful enough glance at the MSD sheets of mercury and its compounds should convince even the more skeptical reader that their respective toxicity indications far exceed that of common/benign substances such as vitamins.
It can thus be reasonably argued that mercury really has no place in the human body, and that ’safe’ levels are defined only on the individual’s ability to tolerate and/or expel mercury and any of its derivative compounds.

On the potential development of Autism-like symptoms from mercury exposure, we read from Russell Blaylock’s paper:
From another paper we read that methyl-mercury and ethyl-mercury have different neurotoxic strengths:
Note however, that rats rather than human beings were used to assess neurotoxicity. As Blaylock pointed out the blood-brain barrier is easily compromised in human beings and so it is not automatically justified to extrapolate the experimental results obtained in rats to human beings.
Indeed, a later paper comes up with rather different findings than Magos’ as they used monkeys rather than rodents in their study:
From the same Blaylock paper, we later read:
Here both Blaylock and Magos confirm that, if having entered the brain, ethylmercury is easily converted to the very neurotoxic ionic mercury (Hg+).
