    mercury in india

    I dono if this post is suitable for the forum .but i am so scared or upset or i dono what....
    i happened to come across a person whose child is autistic.She was telln me she has no idea why her son became so.When i browsed the net i saw the mercury in vaccines can be one of the reasons.

    My son's vaccines were all taken in India at a private hospital but i hadnt known abt mercury then.having heard abt it i am worried if mercury is used in the vaccines back in India.

    am i being paranoid....any comment is appreciated and awaited.

    thanx a lot ofr ur time.

    The US has removed that preservative from most/all vaccines.
    But keep in mind that almost every child in the US for 40 or 50 years had vaccines preserved with mercury and almost all of them were unharmed.
    My non-professional, personal opinion is that some children have genes that cause this reaction with mercury, but the overwhelming majority do not have the genes and do not have an adverse reaction.
