Please consider the following realities about Thimerosal:
THIMESOSAL CAUSES MERCURY POISONING: AN OVERVIEW
Sub-acute mercury poisoning by Thimerosal manifests as clinical symptoms that include the set of symptoms used to diagnose autism. Thimerosal toxicity is a matter of the specific dose and Thimerosal's persistence in the parts of the body in a form that is toxic to thoseorgans, tissues, and/or fluids in which it ispresent at a level high enough to exert its toxic effects.
Moreover, because: · Thimerosal (49.55% mercury by weight), Thimerosal's initial mercury-containing solvolys is products (ethylmercury chloride [75.66 % mercury by weight] and ethylmercury hydroxide [81.28% mercury by weight]), and its final metabolites (tissue- incorporated "inorganic" mercury ("complexed" Hg2+") have all been proven to be highly toxic in short term.
Recent peer-reviewed published research studies  have clear established that some young children with a diagnosis in the autism spectrum ARE mercury poisoned and that their principal mercury exposure was from the Thimerosal-preserved vaccines they and, in some cases, their mothers' received and passed to them during pregnancy and breast feeding, and · Apparently, in Hanna Poling v. Sec. HHS (vaccine court case: 02-1466V), a "Thimerosal as a causal factor" test case in the vaccine court's Autism Omnibus, the federal government has conceded that the Thimerosal in the vaccines Hannah Poling received was a causal factor in the neuroencephalopathy-generated autism spectrum disorder symptoms that characterize Hannah Poling's vaccine injuries, there is no question that Thimerosal can causesub-acute mercury poisoning in some children injected with Thimerosal-containing vaccines to the point that the mercury-poisoned child will exhibit mercury-poisoning symptoms that include that set of symptoms used to diagnose an autism spectrum disorder.
Thus, the real question is when are vaccine apologists going to stop raising questions that have been answered and start admitting that Thimerosal-containing vaccines have mercury poisoned and are mercury-poisoning our children and ourselves to the point that some children and adults are sub-acutely mercury poisoned, and exhibit those symptoms that are used to in the diagnosis of a wide variety of neurodevelopmental (e.g., autistic disorder, pervasive developmentaldisorder - not otherwise specified [PDD-NOS],Asperger's, attention deficit disorder [ADD] andattention deficit hyperactivity disorder [ADHD])and other disorders (asthma, diabetes, obesity, multiple sclerosis (MS), and food allergies) inour children, and, for those old enough to missthe prenatal and early childhood Thimerosal-poisoning, "dementias" (e.g., Alzheimer's) inourselves.

Hopefully, the preceding realities have settled the issue of whether Thimerosal is a major causal factor in most children who have adiagnosis in the autism spectrum.
