I don’t know if this has been brought up yet, but have you heard about the mercury in vaccines causing autism?
Some studies are trying to say the vaccines don’t cause autism (covering their a**) but if you look up mercury poisoning without involving vaccines,
they say it causes autism or “nearly identical“ symptoms.
Thimerosal: a mercury containing vaccine additive that has been banned most everywhere but in the USA.
Article on the vaccines:
Below is a paragraph from this link:
Mercury is a known brain poison, and autism rates began rising dramatically in children who were administered the new vaccine regimens. A decade ago
the American Academy of Pediatrics estimated the autism rate among American children to be 1 in 2,500. Today, the CDC places the rate at 1 in 166, or
1 in 80 boys. Additionally, one in six children is now diagnosed with a related neurological disorder.
Below is a paragraph from this link www.bioprobe.com...
Autism was first described in 1943 by Kanner. Thimerosal, a mercury containing preservative, was first use in the vaccines in the early 1930s.
Prior to 1970 the prevalence of autism was 1 in 2000.
In 1970 it was 1 in 1000
and in 1996 the NIH estimated it to be 1 in 500.
In the year 2000 reports from the education sector revealed the incidence to be 1 in 150.

If I understand correctly, a series of childhood vaccines containing Thimerosal has enough mercury to cause mental retardation.
