    CF, Vaccines & Alzheimers?

    I've been reading alot of stuff in various places about the connection between having lots of vaccines in a lifetime and alzheimers. They especially note the people who have gotten flu vaccines (which still contain mercury and are allowed to continue) all their life in addition to the childhood vaccines have a higher incidence of heavy metal toxicity leading to alzheimers. I just wondered if anyone had read or heard any studies about the incidence of alzheimers in people with CF since we tend to get every shot known to man and most of us get flu shots every year. Also, has anyone read the information on Flumist (the nasal spray flu vaccine)? I am pretty alarmed at the prospect of this being used widely even though it is not reccommended for people with chronic lung problems. I just didn't know if perhaps I was overracting. But it seems like we could be susceptible to catching the flu from not only the virus itself, but from people who've taken this vaccine. See what you think and post back please.

    RE:CF, Vaccines & Alzheimers?

    sorry to get off topic but, ive heard of people going to natuorpaths etc and being said to have 'high' mercury levels through one way of testing or another. does this mean its high by the naturopaths standard or by normal standards? and if it is high by eithers standard, what exactly does it do to the body [apart from sending you 'as mad as a hatter']

    oh and, why does the flu vac have mercury in it?

    myself i wouldnt think there would be much evidence of alzhiemers in cf patients. it usually occurs in older patients, and longevity isnt something CFers usually have the privilege of enjoying. and i dont know why they still have mercury in the vaccines if everyone knows its dangerous.

    To your first question, most people have levels of heavy metals in their system that are higher than they ought to be for several reasons 1) most everyone alive has received tons of vaccines and they didn't even set a date for removal of mercury until 1997 and still most of the vaccines don't have to have it totally removed until 2005. 2) Lots of people know that eating fish can help prevent cancer and heart disease and lower cholesterol, but most of the big fish that we eat contain lots of mercury from contamination (this is not conspiracy theory, but scientific finding). Most people are able to excrete heavy metals pretty well, but not everyone. Those that cannot excrete it or whose systems get so flooded with it that they are overwhelmed, suffer brain damage like alzheimer's, autism, autism spectrum disorders and other learning disabilities. There are a number of studies by independant researchers out there that show the links between brain damage/disorders and heavy metal levels. Naturopaths can test these levels using several methods, but the most common (also used by forensic pathologists) is hair sampling. The content of the hair follicle is measured. It can show not only levels of heavy metals excreted from the body, but also exposure period (like whether it was an isolated incident such as a single set of vaccines or prolonged like eating mercury containing fish 4 times a week for a year). In the years before mercury-preserved vaccination, the stats state an incidence of autism and alheimer's as being like 1 in 20, 000, but we now have a current rate of incidence of approx. 1 in 200. That high rate isn't even including the people who have autism spectrum disorders (which are like having varying degrees of milder autism - people who can function to some greater or lesser degree). I do think that the oceanic contamination also contributes to this number as well as other factors that I may not be aware of, but the stats I've seen are particularly regarding vaccines.To the second question, flu vaccines and other vaccines have contained and do still contain mercury as a preservative. I am currently trying to research whether there are other medicines or medical therapies that use mercury as a preservative (like the saline and heparin that are used in our IVs - they typically contain a preservative, but I do not know from what origin)Please don't get me wrong, I'm not saying we should all boycott vaccination, but I am concerned about getting all the facts and making educated decisions. I plan to be around as long as I can manage it and if my body is still working, I want my mind to work too.

    Hi HollyCatherine,

    Do you get flu vaccines for your daughter? My daughters have been getting them since they were babies. This really frightens me what you wrote. I know all about the mercury but I never thought of the link to alzheimers. I'm sure they will live long lives since they do not have cf and I don't want to be harming them in their future.

    Speaking of mercury, there was an article in our paper last week warning people not to eat a lot of fish out of a local lake. Mercury levels are high because of the gold mining that was done in the region during the gold rush. The miners used mercury to separate out the gold. Lucky us to be let with all this pollutant.
