Flu Vaccine and the importance in understanding the difference between Methylmercury vs Ethylmercury

June 4, 2014 Leave a comment

Hello friends, I stumbled on  a post being shared in social networks  and I had to do some digging because it was unsettling. The post mentions that the Flu Vaccine has 25,000 times higher mercury level than EPA limit for water. Obviously this raised concerns so I did what most people should do but usually do not, GET MORE DATA.

Then after reading different sites they all agreed with the Centers for disease control and prevention (CDC). There are 2 types of mercury;
1) Ethylmercury: This is the natural mercury turning into METHYLMERCURY by different types of bacteria in the environment. At high levels, it can be toxic to people. HAVING SAID THAT..

2) FLU VACCINE HAS ETHYLMERCURY: they are processed differently in the human body!!! “Ethylmercury is broken down and excreted much more rapidly than methylmercury. Therefore, ethylmercury (the type of mercury found in the influenza vaccine) is much less likely than methylmercury (the type of mercury in the environment) to accumulate in the body and cause harm: This comes from CDCexposureaScreen Shot 2014-06-04 at 2.09.38 PM

WANT A CLOSE EXAMPLE??? HOW ABOUT ALCOHOL
You have METHANOL and ETHANOL
– Drink METHANOL and it will be poisonous
– Drink ETHANOL and you will get a buzz and if abused bad hangover

Information like this is what is causing news like this ->http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2014/04/24/cdc-measles-is-back-and-its-spreading/

Trust your doctor, not Wikipedia, say scientists

Wikipedia, the online encyclopaedia, contains errors in nine out of 10 of its health entries, and should be treated with caution, a study has said. Scientists in the US compared entries about conditions such as heart disease, lung cancer, depression and diabetes with peer-reviewed medical research.

Hugh Herr is a living exemplar of the maxim that the best way to predict the future is to invent it. At the age of 17, Herr was already an accomplished mountaineer, but during an ice-climbing expedition he lost his way in a blizzard and was stranded on a mountainside for three days.
