Visit A Shot of Truth’s website to view the complete historical timeline of the mercury-based preservative, thimerosal, that is still used in vaccines. Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) February 24, 2014 A Shot of Truth recently published a unique timeline which provides clear and convincing evidence that the autism epidemic, now affecting one in fifty children, was caused by the mercury-based preservative thimerosal. There are a number of public records that substantiate these same findings,...

Microbes that live in rice paddies, northern peat bogs and other previously unexpected environments are among the bacteria that can generate highly toxic methylmercury, researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center have learned. This finding, published in Environmental Science and Technology, explains why deadly methylated mercury is produced in areas where the neurotoxin’s presence has puzzled researchers for decades. Methylmercury —...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists from California have linked rising levels of methylmercury in their state´s coastal fog to upwelling from deep ocean water. Lead researcher Peter Weiss-Penzias, an environmental toxicologist at the University of California, Santa Cruz, was quick to point out that the amount of the toxic mercury compound detected in coastal fog is not a direct public health concern. "These are parts-per-trillion levels, so when we say...

Inexpensive, super-sensitive device detects even low levels of toxic metals in water, fish When mercury is dumped into rivers and lakes, the toxic heavy metal can end up in the fish we eat and the water we drink. To help protect consumers from the diseases and conditions associated with mercury, researchers at Northwestern University in collaboration with colleagues at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, have developed a nanoparticle...
