A new study just came out that showed the level of mercury in autistic children is about the same and not statistically different than, the amount of mercury in non-autistic children.
Now, before you jump to conclusions and say,
"Ah, I knew it. Mercury’s not a factor. "
You are Wrong.
You have to look at it from this perspective:
Why is mercury affecting the autistic kids differently than the non-autistic kids?
That’s the question you have to answer. I’m going to tell you.I think it boils down to the fact that these kids that are being affected by the mercury, they’re having an immune system reaction to it. Mercury will definitely stimulate your immune system.f
The reason why aluminum and mercury are in vaccines is because they a foreign compound and your immune system recognizes it as an invader. That’s what makes those vaccines work "better.' Because mercury and aluminum don’t belong in your system and your immune system wants to kill them.
Now, in this subset of kids that are being affected by mercury levels, they’ve got something else going on.
There’s something else that’s made their immune system hyper-recognize it, and that needs to be investigated.
They may have already had a predisposition for it... but it's like an immunological nuclear bomb when these kids get vaccinated.
It’s not necessarily, not necessarily the metals that are causing the problems. The fact that their immune system is being put on crack for a couple of days post-vaccination...their immune system can mistakenly recognize their own tissues as invaders.
Once that happens, you don’t turn that off. That doesn’t stop. Only thing you can do is try to control it. I’ve certainly seen that in my practice and a lot of kids like that.
So, when you see this study and you see people bandying about this idea that mercury’s not an issue because this study showed that the level of mercury in autistic kids and non-autistic kids is the same...don’t believe that. .
What you say back to them is .. "Why are some of these kids being affected by mercury and some aren’t?"For me that answer, starts with their immune system. They may have had a preexisting imbalance in their immune system. (We can talk about that more some other day. ) Or, they had a pre-existing barrier problem either in their brain or their gut or their lung.
Don’t be fooled when somebody tries to say, “See, I told you so,” because they’re wrong.
