Has Ethyl Mercury Caused One of the Worst Health Crises in American History? During the past 20 years, the frequency of autism occurring in children has skyrocketed.
This video shares facts about the devastating mercury based preservative, thimerasol, used in vaccines.

In this episode of Awake And Empowered TV (The Truth About Mercury And Vaccines) , Ethann Fox is joined by documentary filmmaker and researcher, Eric Gladen. Ethann and Eric discuss his new film “Trace Amounts”, and the international tour and campaign for vaccine reform. In this conversation, they talk about the scientific research conducted into the effects of mercury and Thiomersal on the human body and brain, as well as the evidence that it is the leading cause of Autism. Ethann and Eric go on to talk about the mandatory vaccination law that is scheduled to go into effect in California in 2016, and how parents and schools are responding to this requirement. Other topics include various treatments for Autism that have shown promise, and how to detoxify mercury and other heavy metals from the body and brain.

About Eric Gladen
Trace Amounts is the first film by director Eric Gladen. After years of battling illness, Eric Gladen decided to leave the life he knew behind and focus his efforts on researching autism. After more than a decade of analysis, interviews, and traveling, Eric is releasing a film that has not only affected his own life, but the lives of many others in our world today. Eric lives in California and currently manages the World Mercury Project, a non-profit organization which he founded.
After recovering from a mysterious and devastating illness, director Eric Gladen started researching the science behind autoimmune diseases. His research led him straight into one of the biggest medical controversies of all time: whether or not childhood vaccines cause autism. However—his film is not an anti-vaccine film. He doesn’t concentrate on the vaccines themselves but on something that belongs nowhere near them; on mercury, part of the ingredients used as a preservative in vaccines. Eventually, Eric decided to quit his career, moving into an RV and traveling the country for years in order to interview experts and piece together thousands of studies and leaked documents. When the puzzle was finally complete, the answer was very clear to him. He believes that mercury is the trigger for psychological and neurological autoimmune conditions and autism. His film presents interviews with specialists in the field, as well as specific scientific research and experiments that show how dangerous mercury is. At the very least, his documentary creates a platform for open dialogue for all aspects of this issue, for or against, in hopes of enlightening the public.
The World Health Organization (WHO) On Mercury
- Mercury is a naturally occurring element that is found in air, water and soil.
- Exposure to mercury – even small amounts – may cause serious health problems, and is a threat to the development of the child in utero and early in life.
- Mercury may have toxic effects on the nervous, digestive and immune systems, and on lungs, kidneys, skin and eyes.
- Mercury is considered by WHO as one of the top ten chemicals or groups of chemicals of major public health concern.
- People are mainly exposed to methylmercury, an organic compound, when they eat fish and shellfish that contain the compound.
Health effects of mercury exposure
Elemental and methylmercury are toxic to the central and peripheral nervous systems. The inhalation of mercury vapour can produce harmful effects on the nervous, digestive and immune systems, lungs and kidneys, and may be fatal. The inorganic salts of mercury are corrosive to the skin, eyes and gastrointestinal tract, and may induce kidney toxicity if ingested.
Neurological and behavioural disorders may be observed after inhalation, ingestion or dermal exposure of different mercury compounds. Symptoms include tremors, insomnia, memory loss, neuromuscular effects, headaches and cognitive and motor dysfunction. Mild, subclinical signs of central nervous system toxicity can be seen in workers exposed to an elemental mercury level in the air of 20 μg/m3 or more for several years. Kidney effects have been reported, ranging from increased protein in the urine to kidney failure.
