More Support for Autism-Mercury Link

Despite what you may have hears, the evidence of a connection between mercury exposure and autism keeps growing.

Last month, two scientists published a fascinating review paper. They investigated what the published evidence linking autism and mercury really said. They found and reviewed more than 150 articles.

According to age of autism, out of the 58 most relevant articles:

“... Fifteen were offered as evidence against a link between exposure to these metals and autism. In contrast, a sum of 43 papers were supporting a link between autism and exposure to those metals ... 74 percent of the published studies supported the theory.”

In addition, even more recently, a study on newborn rats found that thimerosal had clearly measurable effects on opioid receptor development. They also found that these effects were very likely permanent.
