"There has been some worry about thimersol, a preservative used in most preparations of the flu shot. Thimersol contains mercury, which can be poisonous in high concentrations. Many studies have been done looking for evidence that the small amounts of mercury in thimersol can harm children but none has been found."
|We were concerned that parents who had their children vaccinated on time (and therefore were more likely to have increased thimerosal exposure at each of the time periods studied) were also more likely to seek medical care for common pediatric ambulatory conditions. Support for this concern was provided by analyses indicating that in each year from 1994 to 1998, children who received >75 µg Hg in the first 7 months of life, compared with children who received 0 to 75 µg Hg in the first 7 months of life, had significantly more well child care visits and significantly more visits for "upper respiratory infections" in both the second and third years of life (Appendix 2). To try to control for health care-seeking behavior, we performed the analyses in phase I restricted to children who had made at least 1 visit to a clinic or an emergency department at the same month of age as cases.|

How can they say that? I've looked EVERY WHERE for studies showing that exact thing and THEY DO NOT EXIST.
