She said what toxins vaccines don't have mecury in them anymore. I said oh where did you hear that...she said my doc told me that I asked him today. So is this true did they get rid of mecury in vaccines? I know when my older kids got vaccines there was mecury in them.
I would have gone one of two ways:
I would tell her to ask her doctor to give her the inserts for each vaccine. Act like it's a totally normal thing for her to do. Obviously we read the inserts before giving medication, right?
I would have reminded her of the other ingredients listed on the vaccine inserts, such as animal dna, msg, food coloring, aluminum, etc etc. It sounds as if she made a decision based on hearsay (e.g. everyone is talking about mercury). She might not be aware of how vaccines are made and what they contain.
As for your question, yes, Thim is still in several vaccines. The alleged difference is the quantity. Apparently it is supposed to contain only trace amounts from manufacturing.
