Thimerosal is still making headlines after years of debate. Used as a preservative in vaccines, thimerosal has been linked to autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders in children. Thimerosal carries risk of serious adverse effects because it contains mercury, which can be neurotoxic at certain levels. Behind uranium, mercury is the second most toxic substance known to man. The use of thimerosal in vaccines was a practice that began in the 1930s.
It was not until 1999 that thimerosal began to be eliminated from vaccines. In 1998, thimerosal had already been banned from over the counter drugs. By this time, there was still an absence of definitive information regarding the use of thimerosal containing vaccines and safety among children. Although various studies have denied evidence of autism and thimerosal, critics remain unconvinced.
By looking at the figures, autism was diagnosed in just 1 in 10,000 children before 1980. In 2002, the National Institutes of Health reported autism then affected 1 in 250 children. By following the present government recommendations, children receive over 30 vaccinations, which is also an increase from over a decade ago. In May 2003, the Committee on Government Reform reported on its three-year investigation concluding, "there's no question that mercury does not belong in vaccines." .
