Does Mercury in vaccines cause autism?

According to Parents advisor Ari Brown, M.D., a pediatrician, Thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative is the main ingredient that gets blamed for autism but it was removed from vaccines in 2001 and autism rates continued to rise.

"Some flu shots still contain thimerosal preservatives, but you can ask your doctor for a thimerosal free version," Brown says. She added, "The truth is that a baby typically is exposed to 25 times more mercury by breastfeeding fro six months - which the AAP strongly recommends - than by getting a flu shot."

Study reveals that there is five times more mercury in a single tuna-fish sandwich. Methyl mercury, found in fish, takes almost two months to break down and leave the body. Thimerosal which is ethyl mercury is rapidly eliminated - within a week.
