Mercury in Flu Vaccine is 250 Times Higher than Classified Hazardous Waste
This information was obtained through Neil Miller’s Think Twice Institute Facebook page.
The following information was compiled by Michael Wagnitz, Senior Chemist, University of Wisconsin:
0.5 parts per billion (ppb) mercury = Kills human neuroblastoma cells (Parran et al., Toxicol Sci 2005; 86: 132-140).
2 ppb mercury = U.S. EPA limit for drinking water.
20 ppb mercury = Neurite membrane structure destroyed (Leong et al., Neuroreport 2001; 12: 733-37).
200 ppb mercury = level in liquid the EPA classifies as hazardous waste based on toxicity characteristics.
25,000 ppb mercury = Concentration of mercury in multi-dose, Hepatitis B vaccine vials, administered at birth from 1991-2001 in the U.S. and no other industrialized country.
50,000 ppb mercury = Concentration of mercury in multi-dose DTaP and Haemophilus B vaccine vials, administered 8 times in the 1990s to children at 2, 4, 6, 12 and 18 months of age and currently preservative level mercury in multi-dose flu, H1N1, meningococcal and tetanus vaccines. This can be confirmed by simply analyzing the multi-dose vials.
Do you know what happens to unused flu vaccine in Wisconsin? It needs to be treated at a hazardous waste collection site due to the huge amount of mercury it contains. In fact, it is 250 times higher than what is classified as hazardous waste.
