Does anyone know if there are any studies being done on reduction rates of autism, ADD, or ADHD since thirmosol has been removed from most vaccines? Here in Canada the only ones left are the flu shot & Hep B which isn't done until grade 7 here.

I haven't ever come across one. BUT, given that there are very few studies out there even connecting vaccinations to any kind of casual relationship to autism, ADD or ADHD -- and the drastic INCREASE in the diagnosis of these in the last 20 years -- I highly doubt many are paying attention to any decrease either (should there be one)!<br><br>
BTW, one could argue that all thimerosal has NOT been removed from vaccines! It is still used in the production process and is found in trace amounts after being stripped from the vaccine!

<div style="font-style:italic;">Canada recommends Hep B in adolescence <i>or infancy</i>.</div>

They may recommend it, but my schedule from Health Canada has it done at 12 years of age (I'm in Ontario).<br><br>
Since the government funds vaccines here, from my understanding, you may get it done earlier but you would have to pay for it, if you wait until 12 years then it is covered. I don't know anyone who has gotten Hep B done to their infant.<br><br>
The reason I am wondering is because the only study I have read was one in Japan where they removed the MMR from their list of vaccines but autism still increased. No where did it say anything about if the rest of the vaccines had thirmisol in them or not.

What happened in Japan is that they split MMR into 3 vaccines, however, they either gave two or three at one time, or separated them by no more than a month. This doesn't solve the problem of a child's body being hit by three viruses in a short period of time, and triples the other yucky ingredients (live virus, so no preservatives).

Here are two interesting links:<br><br><a href="http://www.ewg.org/reports/autism/execsumm.php" target="_blank">http://www.ewg.org/reports/autism/execsumm.php</a><br><br><a href="http:/a/mercury7.html" target="_blank">http://www.*********/a/mercury7.html</a><br><br>
It sounds to me like there are motives behind why no unbiased research is being done and why you may not see a decline in Austism, ADD, SIDS and other neurological disorders.<br><br>
BTW, if 1 in about every 150 children are now diagnosed with Autism (used to be 1 in 166), I would say it's more than just a small percentage of "at risk" children being effected by these "environmental triggers".

...There were significant reductions in the proportion of NDs reported to VAERS as Thimerosal was begun to be removed from childhood vaccines in the US from mid-1999 onwards. CONCLUSIONS: <b>The present study provides the first epidemiological evidence showing that as Thimerosal was removed from childhood vaccines, the number of NDs has decreased in the US.</b> The analysis techniques utilized attempted to minimize chance or bias/confounding. Additional research should be conducted to further evaluate the relationship between TCVs and NDs. This is especially true because the handling of vaccine safety data from the National Immunization Program of the CDC has been called into question by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences in 2005.</i>

You should know that the Geiers' have been rather throughly debunked. They have a clear economic interest in supporting a vax-autism link, have been deceptive or misleading about their qualifications and the nature of the "institutions" they are employed by, and from what I have read, are conducting human testing on autistic children without employing the typical safeguards and protections the scientific community accepts as necessary to ensure the safety of the human subjects.<br><br>
While you may not agree with the author's position on autism and vaccinations --<br><br><a href="http://neurodiversity.com/weblog/article/128" target="_blank">http://neurodiversity.com/weblog/article/128</a><br><br>
which is a letter in response to a journal which published one of the Geiers' "studies" lays out very clearly a number of the issues with their research.
