Mercury & Vaccines

Posted:

The theory that vaccines containing mercury increase the risk for Autism may not be true according to a new study in California.

Researchers at the California Department of Public Health studied the prevalence of Autism from 1995 to 2007. They found the number of children diagnosed with the disease continued to climb after 2001. That was the year mercury was removed from most vaccines.

Researchers say studies aimed at identifying a risk factor for the disease should still go on, and that this finding would indicate the vaccines are likely not the trigger.
