* All vaccines contain heavy metals.
* Some vaccines are falsely marketed as mercury-free. That claim is scientifically incorrect. No vaccines are made without mercury or aluminum.
* There is no safe level of exposure for mercury, according to the US EPA.

@CaitlinWaddick * Manufacturers report levels of known pollutants, including aluminum and mercury, in vaccines to the CDC. (Independent tests suggest vaccine manufacturers underreport levels of aluminum and mercury.).



Thimesoral is the mercury based ingredient in vaccines that you probably refer to?

According to Centers For Disease Control And Preventation: "(scientists) haven’t found any evidence that thimerosal causes harm."
