    A Quick Tour Through the Mudhole

    Before leaving this subject (for now,) I thought I’d take a look at some of the sites I mentioned that pop up when you do a Google search for thimerosal. I hope you all will pardon me for not directly linking these people. I’m not particularly interested in sending them any traffic. From a law… Read More

    More on Autism (And Mercury)

    After reading my post below, I thought I should clarify a couple of things. I realize that some who believe in a thimerosal-autism link probably don’t argue for a specific brain lesion effect (which spent yesterday’s post argues against.) Rather, the general effects of organomercury toxicity could be the cause. I don’t think that… Read More

    Neurotoxins

    One reason that I have doubts about thimerosal as a cause of autism goes back to mechanism of action. Are there any specific compounds that are know to cause specific neurological problems? (There are plenty that cause more diffuse symptoms, often motor-related, such as tardive dyskinesia.) Well, there’s one prominent example: MPTP, known to… Read More

    Doing Justice to Thimerosal, And the Story

    Like Charles Murtaugh, I’ve been trying to get around to writing something about the thimerosal issue for some time. There are so many angles to the story that it’s hard to know where to begin. They are, in no particular order: Is thimerosal safe? Was it safe when kids didn’t get so many vaccines, but… Read More

    Europe, Again

    Stephen den Beste has a good article about European innovation in science and technology. Well, actually, it’s about the lack of it, as a symptom of the increasing differences between the US and Western Europe in general. Along the way, he mentions the bright spots in what he calls a “high-tech disaster area,” among them… Read More

    Place Your Bets

    Something I mentioned in a post last week got me thinking. . .does anyone want to put some money down on whether the European Union will accept the new strain of rice I was speaking about? After all, it’s genetically engineered, no doubt about it – what’s more, it has genes that didn’t even come… Read More
