I speak with many family members of people whom have autism and not one has ever blamed a vaccine for their loved ones condition.

Who called the mothers liars?
The lie was a certain someone claiming all mothers blame vaccines for autism. That person didn't say many mothers that person said all mothers as in every single mother of an autistic child.
Instead of that certain someone saying they made a mistake by claiming all mothers blame vaccines instead that certain someone changed his/her wording later and then twisted things to make it look as if people here were calling the mothers liars.
Oh, and that certain someone was you.
There are 3 main forms of mercury that differ with respect to their toxicokinetics regarding absorption, distribution, and accumulation in the human body; related health outcomes; and the extent of cycling in the environment.
Elemental mercury is liquid at room temperature, and in this form, is less toxic than inorganic or organic bound mercury. It has a high vapor pressure. If heated, mercury evaporates and becomes highly toxic.
Metallic mercury is lipophilic and is stored in fatty tissues.4 Inorganic ions of mercury vary in water solubility. In general, divalent mercuric salts are soluble in water.
The high toxicity of mercuric ions can be explained by the high affinity to sulfhydryl groups of amino acids, which are building blocks for enzymes. In organic mercury compounds, mercury is covalently bound to carbon.
Organic mercury is the most dangerous form of mercury to human health. Methylmercury, the most predominant form of organic mercury, is the form that poses a risAk through fish consumption.
Methylmercury is better absorbed and shows a higher mobility in the human body than inorganic mercury.
Another example of an organic mercury compound is ethyl mercury or thiomersal (referred to as thimerosal in the USA), which is used as a preservative in some vaccines.
The development of the child in utero and early in life is at particular risk. Mercury is ubiquitous and persistent. Mercury is a global pollutant, bio-accumulating, mainly through the aquatic food chain, resulting in a serious health hazard for children. This article provides an extensive review of mercury exposure and children’s health.
