What is it?

jeremy piven

Yesterday, we told you about Jeremy Piven's struggle with mercury poisoning. But what is it exactly? Dr. Cara Natterson fills us in.

"Methyl mercury -- the type that is found in fish and can also be found in a variety of herbal remedies -- is a known neurotoxin," she says. "That means that it can affect the way the nerves work within the body. The term 'mad hatter' actually comes from the physical symptoms associated with mercury used by felters who manufactured hats. The symptoms included trembling (sometimes called hatter's shakes), loss of coordination, slurred speech, irritability, loss of memory, and depression."

She says ethyl mercury is the "mercury preservative" (also known as thimerosal) that was used in vaccines in the past. Ethyl mercury is NOT the same as methyl mercury and it does NOT accumulate in fish, according to Dr. Natterson.

The FDA issued a warning about fish consumption in 2004, urging women of childbearing age and children to reduce their fish intake in order to protect the developing nervous systems (including brains) of fetuses, infants and children. But no specific warnings have been issued for adult men, she says.

Do you limit your kid's fish consumption?

Nice try Dr. Natterman. Ethylmercury is still added to flu, tetanus and menningcocal vaccines at a concentration of 50,000 ug/l. This is 250 times more mercury than what the EPA classifies as hazardous waste. Ethylmercury is more toxic than methylmercury. They are both equally distributed to the brain but once in the brain, ethylmercury breaks down to Hg++ more rapidilly. This type remains trapped and has been shown to cause degenerative brain disease.

There are 3 main sources of mercury; fish, silver fillings and vaccines. The worst is vaccine mercury. This is ethylmercury, injected into the bloodstream , where it goes right into the brain and other tissue. Once in the brain it is converted to Hg++ where it remains trapped and wrecks havoc. The next most dangerous is vapor from mercury fillings. Again, this vapor gets into the blood and ends up in the brain. While methylmercury (fish) is very toxic, it actually gets eliminated somewhat through the gut. The mainstream medical community doesn’t have a clue!

New book eh! Called “Dangerous or Safe”

With the knowledge shown here by her short piece I suggest its filed under “HUMOUR” and not under “SCIENCE”!

At the last reckoning (December 2008) there are still 17 different USA vaccines with mercury and that’s only where they admit they have mercury.

Ethyl mercury is at the approximate level of harm of methyl mercury and its effect on little infants can be seen ad nauseum.

“Harry” got his mercury vaccine at 4pm and was dead by 10pm.

So we have a clock reaction whereby an infant can die 6 hours after a mercury vaccine.

How many more examples of this exact time frame are needed to get mercury out of our vaccines?

Obviously one case is not enough?

Is two sufficient?

Or three?

Look amongst the VAERS - 250 000 dangerous reactions to vaccines for others.

Dangerous or Safe?

Mercury is at the top of the list almost.

That’s the dangerous list in case of doubt.

So putting it in 2008 vaccines kind of makes your doctor look like an almost failed serial killer then?

Death rate under one year in USA is 7 out of every 1000.

In Japan (no vaccines often) death rate is 2 out of every 1000.

Is your doctor a failed or successful serial killer?

How long is the mainstream medical system going to defend the injection of babies with large quantities of organic mercury? You talk about putting one’s credibility on the line. The cat is out of the bag and it’s not going back in. The studies defending this act are almost as comical.

I was reading something else about this on another site. Interesting. Your viewpoint on it is diametrical contradicted to what I read before.
