Thimerosal: Autism and Mercury Poisoning Side Effects?Written by Margaret Wommack
Thimerosal is a preservative that is added to vaccines (has been since 1930s) that is almost half (49.6% by weight) mercury. Preservatives are added to vaccines to prevent bacteria and fungi from growing. These vaccines include antivenins, skin test antigens, ophthalmic and nasal products. Thimerosal preserved vaccines have been given to children as well as adults.
The FDA department CBER (Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research) found that in more than 30 vaccines Americans are given EPA established limit for mercury intake in first 6 months of live was exceeded by up to 30-50 times. Mercury causes such concern because it is second most toxic element on earth and has been known to cause learning disabilities, autism, Alzheimerís, multiple sclerosis (MS), fibromyalgia, lupus, arthritis, depression, and bipolar disorder. Even seemingly small amounts of mercury have major, deadly consequences and mercury poisoning affects kidneys and nervous system. Other effects of mercury poisoning include burning feeling in limbs, mental side effects such as loss of memory, vision and hearing, other psychological effects, paralysis, congenital malformations, kidney failure, and even death.
The Real Reason Your Acne Is Out of ControlWritten by Burgundy Shank
There are many opinions on what exactly causes acne and how to best prevent breakouts. If you look on web, youíll find lots of conflicting information and expensive products that donít put you any closer to your goal of blemish-free skin. As an adult with previous acne problems in childhood, I can tell you what worked for me and what has worked for others that I have consulted about adult acne.
Acne is believed by many people to be caused by improper hygiene, but main culprit is an excess of sebum, which is natural oil that your skin produces. Why do some people produce more sebum than others? In many cases it has to do with improper diet, hormonal imbalances and over-cleansing of skin. Once skin begins producing too much sebum pores become clogged, allowing them to become infected and inflamed, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads, and painful red bumps. If these symptoms are not treated properly, they can cause pain and scarring, leading to discomfort and embarrassment.
First of all, all things regarding your body stem from a well balanced diet. You can use most expensive, most researched products on planet and youíll be wasting your dollars if you do not pay attention to what types of foods you put into your body. Most people know that they should be drinking 8-10 glasses of water daily, avoiding sweets and refined carbohydrates, and consuming as many raw fruits and vegetables as possible. At same time, some healthy foods can aggravate acne breakouts due to food allergies. For example, many people have skin problems when eating oranges. Different foods will affect people individually, and keeping a journal of what you ate coupled with your symptoms may be helpful in determining which foods you should avoid.
Hormone imbalances come frequently for women before their menstrual cycle, but these fluctuations can be controlled by a balanced diet as well. Certain herbal supplements may also help to level out uncontrollable hormones, such as black cohosh, dong quai, or Siberian ginseng. Soy is especially good for many women in helping with hormone balancing for both menstrual and menopausal women. I highly recommend soy in any of its forms (tofu, edamame, miso, tempeh, etc.) not just for women, but as a healthier lifestyle choice that will dramatically improve overall health and nutrition, and therefore assist with acne concerns.
