I and all my colleagues, friends and family have had the Swine Flu injection and not one has experienced any, even slight, side-effects.Swine Influenza (Swine Flu) H1N1 Outbreak
I have had phone calls about this, so I am moved to comment on the email etc going round re the Swine Flu Vaccine ...implying there is a conspiracy to poison the population, decrease our IQ etc etc with thimerosol ( spelled wrongly) and Squalene which are in the vaccine etc etc In my view this email is grossly misleading and inflammatory (to put it politely!)
I wont go through every point of the email however a few points to consider 1. Thiomersal in the swine flu vaccine
Thiomersol is a compound used as a preservative in the vaccine. It is not mercury. It is certainly NOT the mercury compound that persists in the body and causes toxic effects. The dangerous chemical is methylmercury. The vaccine contains a type of ethyl mercury.
Yes thiomersal does contain a mercury atom in the molecule, but we know that atoms behave differently depending on what they are bound to.
For example; Oxygen is flammable. Water has an OXYGEN molecule in the atom ( H2O) but water is NOT flammable like oxygen, because the oxygen behaves differently in a compound molecule.
Another analogy would be the arsenic in prawns - there is a type of asenic in prawns. ( If I need to do heavy metal screening on a patient, I have to request patients avoid eating prawns for several days prior to the test or they return a positive result. ....) Any of your friends have arsenic poisoning from prawns lately? 2. Squalene in the swine flu vaccine?
Squalene is a naturally occurring substance found in plants, animals, and humans. It is manufactured in the liver of every human body and circulates in our bloodstream. Squalene is also found in a variety of foods, cosmetics, over-the-counter medications, and health supplements.
THERE IS NO SQUALENE IN THE AUSTRALIAN VACCINE http://www.thetraveldoctor.com.au/swine_flu.htmlSqualene - World Health Organisationhttp://www.who.int/vaccine_safety/topic ... nswers/en/
