Chinese scientists find mice injected with thimerosal (vaccine mercury) have behavioral impairments similar to autism.
Transcriptomic analyses of neurotoxic effects in mouse brain after intermittent neonatal administration of thimerosal
Li X, Qu F, Xie W, et al. Toxicological Sciences. 2014;139:452–465.
“Thimerosal-treated mice exhibited neural development delay, social interaction deficiency, and inclination of depression. Apparent neuropathological changes were also observed in adult mice neonatally treated with thimerosal. High-throughput RNA sequencing of autistic-behaved mice brains revealed the alternation of a number of canonical pathways involving neuronal development, neuronal synaptic function, and the dysregulation of endocrine system.”
