Hello,
Perhaps it was called by a different name in ancient times. I recall that
when I was raised in the mountains of western Virginia, most everyone in
that area had NEVER spent a day in college. They called everyone that had
various types of mental problems-- "crazy". It's possible they did that
same sort of thing in ancient times.

An example is the medical term "Raynaud Phenomenon". In ancient times,
people did NOT have Raynard Phenomenon. The truth is that lots of people
had it but they called it by a different name.

Scientists still are not 100 percent sure related to the cause of autism.

Good point, Jason. Terminology, diagnostic methodology and criteria
change over time. There have been studies of the so-called autism
epidemic which show that as the incidence of autism increased, the
incidence of mental retardation decreased.

History of neurology?

No one needs to know a thing about neurology to recognize or be around the
autistic.

That is, unless you are inferring that autism is secretive disease that a
Doctor must "discover" and thus treat.

True, but we have been fairly certain from the beginning that it is rarely
if ever caused by vaccines and the evidence against that is becoming firmer
by the day.

See, for example, http://tinyurl.com/rwytw Quebec removed thiomerasol
from vaccines in 1996. How come autism is, if anything, still increasing
there?
Those still pushing the autism/mercury line should be feeling embarassed
and also guilty for contributing to a furore that has undoubtedly diverted
resources from research into the true sources of autism.

Peter,
We discussed this in another thread. If mercury IS the cause of autism,
children would STILL develop autism even if they never took a vaccine
containing thimerosal. The reason is: mercury is found in wood
preservatives, paints,
fungicides, cosmetics, foods, dental fillings, and in contaminated fish.
Thimerosal is just ONE of the sources of mercury. I should repeat--I don't
know whether or not mercury is the cause of autism. The type of mercury in
fish is MUCH more dangerous than the type of mercury in thimerosal. Most
of the anti-vaccine people only seem to care about thimerosal and not the
mercury from the other sources mentioned above. They have an agenda.

Again, my comment is that you are presuming that there is an
autism<->thimerosal/mercury link. Since the overwhelming weight of the
evidence says there is no link, then your argument goes BOOM.

Mark,
I don't know if autism is (or is not) caused by mercury. Even
the scientists are not 100 per cent sure related to the cause of autism.
About the only research study that would convince me would be to raise
about
100 or more children in an environment that has NO mercury. Such a
research study would cost too much money. If even one of those children
developed autism, that would convince me and millions of other people
that mercury does not cause autism. I saw one study that involved testing
the blood of children that had autism. Almost everyone of those children
had high levels of heavy metals. That led me to believe that heavy metals
are an issue that needs to researched in regard to the cause of autism.

You wouldn't think so. Furthermore, Jason seems to have been saying
that since there is so much mercury from other sources, one wouldn't
expect the rates of autism in the population to decrease on the removal
of thimerosal from vaccines even if the mercury/autism theory were fact
instead of unsupported theory.

Which is to say that it is an insignificant factor in mercury exposure,
at least until major factors have been removed. If thimerosal makes *no
difference* to autism rates, then the benefits of using the
preservative outweigh the disadvantages (which appear to be none) in
that situation.

Autism has been defined clinically at least as far back as 1951:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=pubmed&cmd=Retrieve&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=14838158&query_hl=44&itool=pubmed_docsum

Unfortunately, pubmed only goes back that far so we cannot readily look
back farther for older references. Unfortunately, I do not have ready
access to databases which go back farther from my lab. Given that the
word "autism" is used in the title, you can guarantee that it was
defined pre-1951.

Yes, numerous sources. Main sources being milk (mercury the mother eats
can be secreted in milk), contaminated water, and food. However, as you
may imagine the amount of mercury normally absorbed by these routes is
extremely small. This lends a great deal of weight to the studies
showing no link between vaccinations and autism, as removal of the
mercury from the vaccines essentially removes the majority of mercury
most kids are exposed to until they begin eating solid food.

Peter,
Good point. If a baby is breast fed and the mother ate fish about once or
more per week--that would be one method of exposure. If the mother ate
fish once or more per week while she was pregnant, that would be another
method of exposure.
I don't know whether or not doctors give vaccines containing thimerosal to
babies. I am not an expert on this issue so feel free to correct any error
I made in this post. I was just trying to answer your question about how a
baby could be exposed to mercury. If anyone else can think of other ways
that infants could be exposed to mercury--please post.
