    MERCURY BAN IN FLU VACCINES
    August 26, 2004 - California, U.S.A.

    Thimerosal-containing influenza vaccines were banned from use in California. The governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was reacting more to public advocacy groups than the weight of medical opinion. Thimerosal, containing an ethylmercury compound has been used in vaccines in microgram quantities to prevent life-threatening bacterial contamination. In 2004, a report by the Immunization Safety Review Committee of the Institute of Medicine stated that the benefits of vaccination are proven and the hypothesis of susceptible populations is presently speculative. After considering available medical studies from several countries, the report rejected any connection between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism. Neverthless, some lay persons convince themselves otherwise.

Just a line to say I'm living, That I'm not among the dead
Though I'm getting more forgetful And more mixed up in the head.

Just a line to say I'm living, That I'm not among the dead
Though I'm getting more forgetful And more mixed up in the head.

For sometimes I can't remember When I stand at foot of stair, If I must go up for something, Or if I've just come down from there, And before the frig so often My poor mind is filled with doubt Have I just put food away, or Have I come to take some out.

And they're times when it is dark out, With my night cap on my head, I don't know if I'm retiring, Or just getting out of bed So, if it's my turn to write you There's no need of getting sore I may think that I have written, And don't want to be a bore.

So, remember I do love you, And I wish that you were here;
But now it's nearly mail time So I must say "Good-bye, dear."

***************************

There I stood beside the mail box With a face so very red,
Instead of mailing you a letter, I had opened it instead !
