Harmful Effects of Mercury
• Neurotoxic -- damages brain cells
– Breaks DNA, damages membranes, activates
Caspase-3 causing apoptosis (cell death)
– Produces the same pathologic hallmarks
experimentally as that seen in Alzheimer’s disease
– Testosterone enhances it
• Poisons (antioxidant) enzymes
– Catalase, SOD, glutathione peroxidase
• Glutamate-induced excitotoxicity
– Interferes with its removal from extracellular space
• Interferes with energy production
– Accumulates in mitochondria
Vaccine-Related Causes of
Childhood Disease and Autism
• Thimerosal
– 50% ethyl mercury
• Other Preservatives, Stabilizers, and Adjuvants
– Aluminum, Formaldehyde, Antibiotics, Triton-X,
Ethylene glycol
• Crowded vaccine schedule
– Too many vaccines given too close together at too
young an age
• Live virus vaccines
– Virus-induced autoimmunity

A User-Friendly Vaccination Schedule
– No vaccinations until a child is two years old.
– No vaccines that contain thimerosal (mercury).
– No live virus vaccines (except for smallpox,
should it recur).
– These vaccines, to be given one at a time,
every six months, beginning at age 2:
Pertussis (acellular, not whole cell)
Polio (the Salk vaccine, cultured in human cells)
An Update on this Vaccination Schedule (2005)
posted at:
In the newsletter New Developments: New Angles on Developmental Delays (Spring 2005, Vol. 10, No.3), the following
entry is in its News and Comments section (p 3), titled “Friendly Vaccine Schedule Encounters a Glitch." It says,
"Dr. Donald Miller, author of the ‘User Friendly vaccine Schedule’ published in the last newsletter [Copywrite in 2004], has discovered that the D and T of the DPT are no longer available separately, without
thimerosal. Unless the vaccine manufacturers can be pressured to make separate thimerosal-free D, T, and P
vaccines, it will be impossible, unfortunately, to follow the ‘user friendly’ vaccination schedule as written. Miller
believes that the risk of the combined DPT vaccine, even after age two, outweighs its benefits, so it is better to do
without these shots.”
In my research on this subject, I was persuaded that Dr. Russell Blaylock is correct in recommending that vaccinations
only be given after the age of two, one at a time, and no closer than six months apart--and that a "user friendly"
schedule should include only D, T, P and polio, the four "traditional" vaccines. I did not think before writing the
article to ascertain (assuming it to be the case) that one could indeed obtain separate D, T, and P vaccines without
On further investigation I have found that T and D can be obtained separately, but they contain thimerosal/mercury.
GlaxoSmithKline made a separate pertussis vaccine for the APERT trial, but apparently no longer does so. A
Japanese company is said to make one (?without thimerosal), but I cannot determine who it is. If your
pediatrician can obtain single-dose vials of D and T then those would have only an inconsequential trace of
thimerosal, but they are apparently hard to find as well. That leaves only the polio vaccine.
For a good discussion of why one should avoid most vaccines on the CDC's schedule I recommend Dr. Sherri Tenpenny's
(3-hour) DVD titled "Vaccines: the Risks, the Benefits, the Choices." ( has it, as do other sites.).
My Response to Emails About
“A User-Friendly Vaccination Schedule”
Unfortunately, most orthodox (allopathic) pediatricians suffer from what is called
"negative cognitive dissonance." This is the "inability or disinterest in processing
new, unexpected or unwanted information," as the medical journalist Michael
Culbert squarely puts it. In medical school, students are indoctrinated on the value
of vaccines, and by the time pediatricians (along with other physicians and surgeons)
have finished their training they have become prisoners of the vaccine paradigm.
Very few conventional doctors (M.D.s and D.O.s) have been able to break out of this
ideological prison.
It is very hard to find a M.D. pediatrician anywhere who has an enlightened view of
vaccines. A substantial part of their office income comes from giving vaccinations
on well baby visits. Without needing to follow the CDC's vaccination schedule, why
take a healthy baby to see a doctor?

One woman’s experience with GBS following a flu shot:
After spending 16 months in the hospital paralyzed on a
ventilator and life support and several subsequent
multi-month hospitalizations, she writes:
"On my last visit to my neurologist I was able to walk about 6
feet holding his hand, not much but it took years to be able to
do that. I scratch my head when I hear them promoting flu
shots… Most people that I come into contact with – in the
hospital and out (nurses, doctors, and regular people) – after
hearing my story, feel that it is better to chance the flu and not
get the shot."
