- Hi Jackie,
Pregnant women were "Injected" with mercury via Rhogam or the flu
with 25-35 mcg of Mercury. The EPA limit for "INGESTING" mercury is
for a 132 lb person. There is no safe limit on INJECTING mercury
pregnant woman, Mercury crosses over the placenta and targets the
a fetus, the fetus has no blood brain barrier to protect itself from
mercury. Mercury is a Neurotoxin....Mercury also causes DNA damage
to a fetal brain.
Methyl-mercury, usually from contaminated food, is very dangerous to
pregnant women. Methyl-mercury causes profound mental retardation,
palsy, seizures, spasticity, tremors, and incoordination, along with
hearing damage in the unborn baby as a result of the mother's
Organic mercury passes into the breast milk as well.
Symptoms of this disorder, which attacks the nervous system and
brain, may include numbness of limbs and the area around the mouth,
muscle weakness, an unsteady gait, tunnel vision, slurred speech,
hearing loss, and abnormal behavior such as sudden fits of laughter.
More aggravated symptoms include general paralysis, difficulty in
swallowing, convulsions, and death. Methylmercury also cripples
neural development in fetuses and passes much more readily into the
brains of young children than adults.
The effect of thimerosal, an organomercurial preservative in
vaccines, on cerebellar neurons dissociated from 2-week-old rats was
compared with those of methylmercury using a flow cytometer with
appropriate fluorescent dyes. Thimerosal and methylmercury at
concentrations ranging from 0.3 to 10 microM increased the
intracellular concentration of Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) in a concentration-
dependent manner. The potency of 10 microM thimerosal to increase
the [Ca2+]i was less than that of 10 microM methylmercury. Their
effects on the [Ca2+]i were greatly attenuated, but not completely
suppressed, under external Ca(2+)-free condition, suggesting a
possibility that both agents increase membrane Ca2+ permeability and
release Ca2+ from intracellular calcium stores. The effect of 10
microM thimerosal was not affected by simultaneous application of 30
microM L-cysteine whereas that of 10 microM methylmercury was
significantly suppressed. The potency of thimerosal was similar to
that of methylmercury in the presence of L-cysteine. Both agents at
1 microM or more similarly decreased the cellular content of
glutathione in a concentration-dependent manner, suggesting an
increase in oxidative stress. Results indicate that thimerosal
exerts some cytotoxic actions on cerebellar granule neurons
dissociated from 2-week-old rats and its potency is almost similar
to that of methylmercury.
It should be noted that this research study compared equal doses of
methylmercury and thimerosal. However, thimerosal is only 1/2 mercury
(ethylmercury), so the authors should have compared 1/2 dose
with 1 dose methylmercury. The conclusion would then be that
ethylmercury is equally potent to methylmercury in increasing Ca2++.
study also says that unlike methylmercury (which is usually bound to
cysteine in a cell) thimerosal's potency is unaffected by presence of
L-cysteine in the neuron, so under in vivo conditions the effects of
ethylmercury are likely greater (by a factor or 2) than methyl.
the study shows that thimerosal is more potent than methyl in
glutathione levels in the cell, which is what other researchers
finding as well.
Effects of Mercury Administered during Pregnancy
A reader named "Donna" contacted Midwifery Today E-News with an
informal study she conducted of mothers who were "injected" with
mercury while pregnant. She started with her own story:
There is a yahoo group for Rhogam moms, This also includes mothers
that were injected with the Flu vaccine while pregnant.
