More Proof That Autism Is Mercury Poisoning

Autistics Clinically Proven Mercury Poisoned

Press Release Contact:

For Immediate Release CoMeD Director [Rev. Sykes (Richmond, VA)

April 8, 2007 CoMeD Sci. Advisor [Dr. King (Lake Hiawatha, NJ)

WASHINGTON, DC – Recent peer-reviewed scientific/medical studies by Nataf et al. (2006) and by Geier and Geier (2006) leave little doubt that many children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are indeed mercury poisoned. These studies utilized urinary porphyrin profile analysis (UPPA) to assess body-burden and physiological effects of mercury in autistics. Today, any parent, physician, or healthcare provider can easily confirm whether a non-chelated autistic is mercury poisoned by having UPPA testing run at Laboratory Corporation of America (LabCorp) (CLIA-certified, Test#120980) or Laboratoire Philippe Auguste (ISO-certified, Urine Porphyrin Profile).

UPPA is a highly accurate, inexpensive, non-invasive, and routinely available method for estimating body-burden and toxicity of mercury. Numerous peer-reviewed scientific/medical papers published over the past 40 years, many of them supported by the US NIH, have proven the validity of using UPPA to identify mercury poisoning.

UPPA profiling, unlike attempts to directly measure mercury in the blood, urine or feces, or in tissues (e.g., hair and nail), is a proven method for assessing mercury toxicity.

Using UPPA, Nataf et al. (2006) studied the urinary porphyrin patterns in French children using the results reported by Laboratoire Philippe Auguste. Similarly, Geier and Geier (2006) studied the urinary porphyrin patterns in US children using the results reported by LabCorp.

Both published studies:

· Clearly demonstrated that non-chelated autistics had porphyrin patterns indicative of clinical mercury toxicity, while normal children and their normal sibling controls did not.

· Found that the more severely affected the ASD children were the higher their evidence of mercury toxicity.

· Established that treating autistics with chelating agents resulted in lower mercury-specific urinary porphyrins, which corresponded to apparent reductions in the mercury body-burden of these children.

Many other physicians who take care of ASD patients have ordered UPPA testing and confirmed the observations made by Nataf et al. (2006) and Geier and Geier (2006).

Thus, urinary porphyrin profile testing is being successfully used to:

· Demonstrate the role of mercury in populations of autistics,

· Identify those children and adults who are mercury poisoned, and

· Track mercury excretion from affected children undergoing treatment.

For the past several years there has been a raging controversy as to whether or not mercury in medicines, especially in vaccines, has caused the dramatic rise in the rate of children diagnosed with an ASD. Many experts have insisted ASDs are caused by some yet-to-be-identified genetic cause. A paper recently published in Nature Genetics described the results of multi-million-dollar genetics study (which studied a thousand-plus families with at least two autistics using in-depth genetic screening). Tellingly, the authors reported, "None of our linkage results can be interpreted as `statistically significant'…" (The Autism Genome Project Consortium, 2007). This makes it unlikely that purely genetic aberrations are t he root cause of most ASD cases.

With the current porphyrin study results, public health officials should now publicly admit what they have been saying in their private transcripts and memos all along: Mercury from Thimerosal-containing vaccines and other medicines has been a major cause of ASD cases, which, according to recent CDC (2007) estimates, may occur one in every 150 children.

CoMeD's web site, contains:

· Further information on how to order these tests,

· Full copies of the Nataf et al. (2006) and Geier and Geier (2006) papers, and

· Some of the many published papers validating the UPPA test.

...leave little doubt that many children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are indeed mercury poisoned.

And yet no direct link between the two was specified, and therefore was NOT proven.

Obviously this study was lazy and incomplete, especially the study done on the genetic factor.

I expect the FDA and the CDC to treat this report with the contempt it deserves.

Thanks for posting the truth - keep it coming. Gotta speak out for the kids.

Christopher Estep said...

One thing to consider.

My son is autistic and not just a little autistic.

Jackson has never had a mercury vaccination. Jackson has been tested for metals in his bloodstream and results were negative. Jackson has never eaten seafood for that matter.

Jackson's autism is not caused by mercury.


Fore Sam said...

How do you know he never had mercury via vaccination? Did your wife have shots while pregnant? Does she have Amalgams? Did she eat lots of fish?
You don't test for mercury with blood tests.
Did you test for fragile X?

Anonymous said...

Christopher - how old is Jackson? Did he receive any vaccines? Did he ever get the flu shot or did your wife while she was pregnant? Did your wife eat any seafood while pregnant or before becoming pregnant - if yes, how much?

Sorry to ask so many question but this is very important to me. I am very sorry to hear about your son.

endersdragon said...

Nope, autism is caused by TV, a study just proved it. Don't trust every study you see, just a thought. Hey Chris I am know as the UOPHA (Unofficial Official Parent Helper Autie) in some circles, feel free to email me at

Fore Sam said...

Dragon, You sound like Phil Gluyas. Did you see the study that found wrestling fans to be brain dead and easily misdiagnosed as autistic?

Dragon's right about that TV study. It got big funding by the pharmaceutical companies.

Joeymom said...

Hey, Christopher, just so you're not out here alone in la-la land, my son does not have mercury poisoning, either.

He never received thimerasol vaccines. Neither did I during my pregnancy. I have never had a flu shot. I don't eat a lot of fish. I don't have fillings.

Knowing what we know now, i can decisively say Joey was born autistic, and showed signs while we were still in the hospital- before he received any vaccines. He was not sick a single day until he was sent to school, so there were no medicines that could be connected to his autism.

My son has been extensively tested, and has had no signs or indication of heavy metal poisoning of any kind.

My son's autism was not caused by or triggered by mercury.

It is likely that what we term "autism" is a term for a set of symptoms, rather than a single condition with a single cause. I cannot say whether or not mercury has caused autism in other kids. I can say with great confidence, and the support of a vaiety of medical professionals, that my son's autism is not connected to mercury or vaccination.

Fore Sam said...

Joeymom, Was your child tested for fragile X? Rett's? Was he tested for mercury with a hair test or a pophyrin test?
Crazy people post here who would deny their kid had mercury if they had watched him drink a bottle of it so don't take my questions as any sort of insult.
Autism that isn't caused by vaccines is so rare that you should make sure you test properly in case you might be able to cure your kid.

dominic esposito said...

So you get first hand evidence of Autism that isn't mercury poisoning and you refuse to believe it.

This is the real world, Mr. Best. Live in it some time. You might actually enjoy it.

Joeymom said...

Joeymom, I agree. Thimerosal is not the only cause of this cluster of behaviours.

Rubella infection, thalidomide and valproic acid during pregnancy, lesions in tuberous sclerosis, encephalitis, and either too much or lack of oxygen at birth can cause the same behaviours known collectively as autism.

And autism might also be caused by "an immune system reaction which causes the brain to swell":

According to Burbacher's research, thimerosal causes brain inflammation. So can wild measles virus and the vaccine measles virus.

Fore Sam said...

Dom, Asking questions is not a refusal to believe anything. The fact that the questions have not been answered could indicate that the the posters are neurodiverse nitwits trying to obfuscate the truth.

Christi said...

FWIW those of you who mention your children having autism and not having mercury poisoning. From what I'm seeing no one has said that *all* autism is caused by this. I haven't read the entire press release - however my opinion is that autism from birth is probably not from heavy metal poisoning. But I'm sure many cases that pop up after birth, especially after vaccinations, could in fact be.

Anonymous said...

Hi, It's not just mercury, it's many metals and toxins. An autistic child has mutations that may be from an evolutionary standpoint, or toxin created. These mutations create an enviroment in which the child is not making the proper enzymes and cofactors in order to methylate. In turn it dominoes because the autistic childs body can not detoxify itself. So in some cases it may not be a matter of immunization, but for some it may. Did you know that a can of baby formula may sit on the shelf for many years before use and the alluminum is bleeding into it. When an autistic child is chelated not only mercury comes out but tons of aluminum along with other metals as well. We are living, breathing, bathing, drinking and sleeping in toxins from formaldyhyde to the pestacides they are spraying everywhere. Would drink a cup of clorox? But our drinking water is filled with chlorine! The deodorant,shampoo and toothpaste you use are full of toxins, Emmision from factories that manufacture them polute our air. Not to mention our cars and trucks. I am a mother of an autistic child and he is recovering through my research with no help from the medical community. We use diet and supplimentation to bypass the mutations to get his body to methylate and with this he detoxifies. But most of all we need to stand up and fight this fight and let everyone know that this is not okay anymore. We need to clean up our act for our children. That study was not lazy, it is the human race that is lazy, and no one wants to take the blame. And who's to blame. We are if we buy any products that contain preservitives or chemicals. If we walk past the organic fruits and vegetables. if we don't write congress, etc.... you know what I am saying here. Do you think people know? While I am at the grocery store I make it a point to tell the person standing next to me which lunch meat doesn't contain nitrates. And what a nitrate is and what it does to the body. You think I'm nut's. I don't care, I care about my children and the future of our human race. It's our job! If a company put's out a lunch meat with no nitrates or preservitives and no one buys it they will go out of business and the nitrate lunch meat brand will win. Which by the way is in your childs sandwich for lunch provided by your Board of Ed! I am happy that study was done. Because now atleast they know some of the kids have mercury in them and will try to figure out why. Maybe it will help....But it gives us a leg to stand on!

Anonymous said...

I don't think your nuts. You're saying it's not just mercury but also environmental poisons. Exactly what we think. We work to remove the toxins but at the same time "try" to prevent them from re-entering the body. We do it in the same ways you speak of. Thank you!

Anonymous said...

If autism really was mercury poisoning, then the ratio of autistics would decline. But clearly it hasn't. It has increased from 1:166 in 2004 to 1:150 in 2007. Ever since mass media about "mercury causing autism" was sent, many people have taken consideration to avoid vaccinating their children, or choosing non-mercury vaccines. But some children still developed autism. it was because at least one of the parents had some of the genes. It wasn't dental fillings, eating lots of fish, or having mercury shots during pregnancy. I know this because I research autism like no-ones business, often finding counterexamples of your statements. I think assortive mating and better diagnosis are the most likely explanations of the rise of autistics born each year.

Fore Sam said...

Bigtime nitwit, There are no counter examples of my statements. I don't care what you read. The fact is that over 90% of autistic kids improve with methyl B-12. If mercury was not interfering with their methylation, additional MB-12 would not make any difference.
Your assortive mating theory only works with nitwits who diagnose themselves with Asperger's as adults because they don't like being called nerds. These people could certainly produce more nerds. Even you can understand that train wrecks who can't talk or learn to use a toilet could never get dates and reproduce.
The flu shot with mercury, prior to the development of a blood brain barrier in fetuses is probably more effective in intentionally causing autism than the HepB at birth was since the fetuses are smaller. This has the added benefit of having the baby born brain damaged so the parents never see it act normal and they believe that crap that you try to sell. Next time you come here, try to think your argument through thoroughly.

Anonymous said...

Foresam, i've been surrounded by severely affected autistics when I was in elementary school, and even some of middle school. i know that some of them can't function at all. Of course I understand what's going on with them. But not all of them are "mercury poisoned."

Assortive mating is creating a dense population of autistic children, with severe and mild forms, in silicon valley. I even heard an a**hole complain about how there's so many "tards" in silicon valley. ever since the internet was invented, there have been more aspies meeting each other online that got married and had children. their children often turn out to have varying degreees of autism.

Maybe you should think your argument through more thouroghly, mister know-it-all.

Fore Sam said...

Big time nitwit, Your Silicon Valley nerds are simply susceptible to mercury poisoning which they pass to their kids. We know that almost all autism is mercury poisoning since it did not exist until they started poisoning us with thimerosal. The only way you can claim anyone is not mercury poisoned is if you have a hair test done or test for fragile X and Rett's.
It's ridiculous of you to assume that any autism is genetic when the geneticists have been busily searching for years and can't find anything.

Joeymom said...

Joey was tested for Fragile X. He does not have it.

I have never heard of a male having Rett's. He does not present the symptom set of Rett's. He did not regress. His head growth has been normal. He retains use of his limbs and has a normal gait. He has no mental retardation, no seizures. I went ahead and asked the doc today since we were there for our yearly review, and he definitely said no Rett's.

We did several different kinds of tests for not only mercury poisoning, but also lead, copper, manganese, iron, cadmium, and I think there were some others, I'd have to go fetch his notebook. We also tested for levels of aluminum, arsenic, and some other stuff our pediatrician was concerned about.

There were blood tests, urine tests, hair tests. Everything came back the same: no poisoning. Nothing even close. Whatever is going on with Joey, it is not due to heavy metals. I also reviewed this today, and the answer is the same: no metal poisoning.

This is why we are just as adamant that autism has multiple causes as you seem to be that it is caused by vaccines. I can't say if vaccines do or do not cause autism. I certainly know several children who experienced dramatic regression within a week of being vaccinated, usually with MMR. Corollation or causation? I haven't done any studies. All my evidence is, alas, anecdotal. I can only really speak for my own child, for whom I have the most complete information.

Joey's autism was not caused by vaccines. He was autistic before he was ever vaccinated.

Joey's autism is not the result of metal poisoning.

The likeliest environmental trigger for Joey's autism was a possible lack of oxygen during delivery- he was a c-section because of distress. If there is a connection here, was the autism triggered by the distress, or the distress triggered by the autism? I'd like some studies done there- but for now, I really couldn't tell you.

Born again Christian who refuses to believe in evolution, despite of all the proof, pretending it's not there; even after seeing how humanlike the apes at the zoo are. This is because he has been tied up to believing in intelligent design. He thinks everything in the bible is correct, and all of Charles Darwin's work is false. He doens't want evolution to be taught in schools. He'll make up things just to prove ID correct. He would say "Humans have God's highest rank of living things. That is why they are so intelligent and unique, compared to all the animals. The animals are here so humans can use them however they like."

Foresam has this same attitude:
Evolution=autism is genetic
Intelligent Design=Mercury Poisoning
Bible=Mark Geier
Charles Darwin=Many scientists, families, and autistics

Scientists have been finding genes for autism on different chromosomes. it is polygenic-it is controlled by so many genes, it's hard to find everything. I'm not talking about rett's or fragile X, i'm talking about autism and aspergers. My father has AS, my mother doesn't, and all my siblings have the traits. None of us were vaccinated with MMR. my family thinks that idea is just as much BS as intelligent design.

Fore Sam said...

Big time nitwit,
I think scientists have been finding genes that were affected by mercury.
Mercury poisoning has nothing to do with whether or not you believe Darwin or critical thinkers who know he was wrong.
Your father and your siblings have mercury poisoning. If any of you were diagnosed as adults, you're simply strange and can change your diagnosis to nerd whenever you like.

Hey Joey's mom, Like downs syndrome, you need both copies of a certain chromosome (one from each parent) in order to get this disorder. We have had our son genetically tested and he carries full deletions (One from each parent) in certain nutrigenomics area's. This means that both his parents ( My Hubby and I) would have to have atleast one, and we wouldn't be completely affected if we only had one.
One of the specific deletions my son carries has to do with an enzyme called (CBS) Cystathione B-synthase. This complete deletion means that one of the amino acids in his dna chain in this area is being replaced by another (the body will not leave it blank but will replace it the best it can)
Now since he is recieving a differant amino acid here he is overproducing in this area and his body is draining very rapidly. It is like having a hole in a bucket. you can keep filling it up but it is going to leak out and you can't keep it full. With his other mutations that he has combined with this you have big trouble getting the nutrients into his body that he needs in order to detoxify anything and this doesn't have to be metals it could be natural chemicals or certain protiens in foods. He also would have problems methylating and his toxic load in his blood stream could get over acid and ammonia build up would occur, he is also very intolorant to sulfur and this is natural forms as well as man made forms in suppliments and medicines, like garlic and onions are very high in sulfur, sulfonimide antibiotics, taurine is an amino acid that is high in sulfur.

So if a mom has a child in her womb that happens to have these mutations,(one from each parent) The child very well could be born autistic from what the mother has ingested during pregnancy. This could be casien (dairy),gluten, sulfur, phenols and salicyliates (you get my drift here). My feelings are, If a child had a lack of oxygen at birth the result most likely would have been mental retardation and not autism. I am telling you all of this because I think you should not take your doctors word for it,(research more into it yourself) Your doctor would not have researched enough to give you the info you need ( they don't have time didn't learn this in medical school and are not planning on becoming specialists in this area and have to look at it from a science point. which means they have to wait for clinical trials which could take years, (Don't wait there is tons of info already availble from parents and groups like DAN,, and secondly I was wondering if you have ever tried the GFCF soy free diet to see if your child would respond to it. A lot of these children improve greatly with this diet as mine did. It really has nothing to do with an allergy to the food, it has to do with the enzymes being used by the body to break down the food into a usable form. And sometimes the protiens and natural chemicals in these foods are turning into the wrong types of chemicals in the blood stream that can be detrimental to the neurological system. Just a thought for you.....

dominic esposito said...

Esposito, If I was wrong, chelation wouldn't be having any effect on my son.

You ASSUME the chelation is helping your son by itself. What has it done? What did it improve and why? Did you do anything besides chelation?

And if wish my respect I would strongly recommend a cessation of the name calling because it shows you aren't prepared to listen, and puts yourself over as a child - which I assume you are not.

Joeymom, I don't understand the question. How can autism trigger distress during delivery, when the term is used to describe a collection of symptoms or behaviours - a syndrome?

It's possible that lack of oxygen during delivery caused your son's behaviours. Dr Rimland mentions it in his book Infantile Autism, and here is an article about a young man who was oxygen-deprived at birth:

That's not enough. Unless he is in special ed and not in a normal school.

Joeymom said...

We have looked into oxygen therapies. We have consulted with a variety of medical professionals on the issue, and HBOT it is not recommended. In fact, it is highly dangerous. If you have some real studies on the effectiveness of HBOT on autism, I would be interested in reading them. The only studies- even anecdotal ones- we found were highly flawed and problematic.

Joeymom said...

Anonymous commenter: Yes, we tried GFCF. It was horrible. He actually got worse. The doctor who was overseeing it finally told us to stop. We are, however, having him tested for other allergies next month, as he did show improvement on predisone. We obviously don't want him on predisone for extended periods, so we're in search of whether he has an allergy that was controlled, a reaction to the predisone itself, or if we hit one of his "leaps" by coincidence (Joey tends to progress in leaps).

I was actually knowledgable about autism before Joey was born enough to be very careful with my diet, and even my insulin, even before I became pregnant. We had heard mercury might cause autism even though we had little understanding of what autism was.

I would like to see more information about genetics, especially since my other son is not autistic- as far as we know.

I don't just take my doctor's word for anything- but it is a good place to start research, especially when you have multiple opinions that all seem to agree, from differeing types of practioners (with differing philophies about and understandings of autism specifically). And our doctor does, in fact, focus on autism specifically.

Joeymom said...

For watson: if autism causes sensory integration disorder, it can easily cause a child to go into distress during a highly sensory-intensive experience such as delivery. And that is just one theory, I'm sure we could think of others. This is exactly why I support autism research of all kinds. Joey is not mentally retarded in any way, and I would think if he had any major oxygen deficiency, there would be some imact on his intelligence. Unless he was originally some super-genius.

watson said...

Joeymom, I understand that integration of the senses is a gradual process, they aren't integrated at birth. Autism is just a description of behaviours so it cannot cause anything.

Just because there was no thimerosal in the vaccines your son received doesn't mean that vaccines didn't cause any problems. Aluminium, another common ingredient, destroys neurons. Measles vaccine virus can also migrate to the brain where it can replicate.

You told John that your doctor doesn't recommend HBOT, and says it's dangerous, and yet you said on your blog that your son started talking in sentences a few weeks ago, directly after oxygen treatment for croup. Don't you think it's likely that oxygen benefited your son?

Many parents have reported improvement with this treatment, but, I guess it's frowned upon by mainstream doctors, not because it's ineffective or dangerous but because, just like all other alternative treatments, it runs counter to their hard-won medical training, and threatens their god-like position.

I recommend reading Doman's book.

Were you aware then or now, that some injectable insulin contains thimerosal?
If you do a quick google search you can find out if it was in the insulin you used when you were pregnant.


Joeymom said...

I was aware that some injectable insulin contains mercury, and other types of preservatives; hence the "I was careful with my insulin."

I just spent a nice hour today discussing oxygen treatments with one of our doctors, who thankfully works on Sundays. ;) HBOT is still definitely dangerous. HBOT is now just mask oxygen or even blow-by; it is placing the child into an extremely high oxygen environment. Believe it or not, this can be harmful! We did discuss trying hi on a breathing treatment of regular mask or blow-by oxygen. We'll see how it goes. The reaction to the predisone was far more interesting to the doctor, and we are very concerned about Joey developing allergies, since he has been ina bit of a downward spiral since Christmas.

Joey was autistic before having any vaccines. I can't see how something he hadn't been exposed to could cause him to be autistic.

Joeymom said...

And just as a by-the-way, "fetal distress" and possible lack of oxygen- though he is currently oxigenating very well according to teh doctor today- is not mercury poisoning. Or caused by vaccines. Which was, of course, my original point: mercury poisoning does not account for all cases of autism. I have no idea if vaccines and/or mercury causes autism, but I know there are cases where it definitely was NOT the cause.

Ian McDonald said...

When I read up on this study it showed mercury poisoning was not linked to Asperger Syndrome. I can understand some autism is mercury poisoning (maybe lots) but it does nobody any favours to say it is the ONLY cause of autism. Anyway I've posted my comments up here

If you believe autism is mercury poisoining, think again. Some autistics have had mercury removed yet are still autistic.

A huge number of autistics have never had to be sent to the doctor to have mercury poisoining removed because it's obvious that autism is genetic and there are no indications that they are poisoined. It's brain wiring- a neurological disorder.

But my son has autism, and does not have mercury poisoning.
They are not the same.

I believe you'd get further in your 'campaign' to clarify the dx. Saying "Pharm is blamed for Autism" vs. "Pharm is blamed for poisoning" makes less sense and if you 'fixed it' -- would make people stand up and take notice.

Otherwise, you leave parents, like me, chasing in circles for something that doesn't exist. Additionally, you make it sound as though ALL our kids are the same, when clearly they're not. Sounds like you can 'cure' your son. Sadly, I cannot.

Don't get me wrong, I think the purpose for which you stand is a noble one, but including me in your "autism family", by your own words, is false.

Ok so hypothetically if we must accept that Autism is indeed Mercury poisoning . .. then we must accept that "autism" is the label that we give the children and adults that suffer so with it ... does actually knowing where it comes from help those that currently have it- NO! Could it be good for future generations to know what causes it ABSOLUTELY! Do I believe it to be Mercury poisoning- no I think its a combination of things and we are still discovering it....
The fact still remains that we have many children and people in the world who have Autism and Aspergers or whatever you want to label it as who may need support or their families may need support should THEY so choose it - so actually in posting this thread you totally accept that the condition is out there now accept that such people need support and acceptance in society as is their right of humanity.
