Mercury And Autism Relationship Confirmed In Longitudinal Study

The Mothers and Children’s Environmental Health (MOCEH) study was initiated by South Korean researchers to investigate the impact of environmental exposures on pregnancy and childhood. Specifically, the study wanted to know the effects of chemical, biological, nutritional, physical, and psychosocial factors on children’s growth and development. [1] The ongoing study became the main source of new research that reveals the strong relationship between prenatal and early childhood exposure to mercury and autistic behaviors in Korean children aged five. The compelling study first appeared in the international journal Science of the Total Environment. [2]

Previous findings on mercury’s potential for neurotoxicity in children were inconsistent, according to Professor Jia Ryu and colleagues. This lack of consistency was attributed by the researchers to methodological issues, wherein investigators relied much on problematic cross-sectional study designs that only measured autistic behaviors and mercury levels at a single point of time.

These issues were resolved by Ryu’s team by focusing on data from the MOCEH study which analyzed five different blood samples including maternal blood from early and late pregnancy, cord blood, and samples from children at two and three years of age. Data collection also covered telephone interviews, self-administered questionnaires, and face-to-face contacts with the 1,751 mother-child pairs involved in the study. One of the surveys conducted by MOCEH used a 65-item social responsiveness scale which assesses autistic behaviors.

The key findings of Ryu and colleagues’ study are outlined below and were based on available data for 26% of the study’s respondents.

• There is a direct relationship between mercury exposure and autistic behaviors.

• There was a doubling of blood mercury levels during late pregnancy, cord blood, and at two and three years of age.

• There is a stronger association between late-pregnancy mercury exposure and autistic behaviors in five-year old boys.

A vast majority of research supports the link between mercury exposure and diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). A 2016 review of studies published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology found that 74% of studies present compelling data on the susceptibility of children with ASD to mercury. [3] These studies stressed the strong correlation between mercury and biomarkers of mercury and autism symptom severity. The review concluded the causal or contributory role of mercury exposure in ASD.

Vaccinations’ impact on the reductions of infectious diseases, disability, death, and inequity has been well-documented. Their negative consequences are also sharing the limelight due to the increasing evidence on the link between autism and vaccines. Recent research re-ignited the debate whether vaccines are the main culprit for the dramatic rise in certain neurodevelopmental disorders in children, particularly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD and autism.

A study conducted by Jackson State University professor Anthony R. Mawson and colleagues focused on 261 unvaccinated children and 405 partially or fully vaccinated children. [4] The researchers based their assessment on mothers’ reports of vaccinations and physician-diagnosed illnesses. Their startling discoveries are outlined below.

• Vaccinated children were more likely to be diagnosed with autism, ADHD, allergic rhinitis or hay fever, ear infection, and chronic illness.

• Vaccinated children were more likely to receive an allergy medication than their unvaccinated counterparts.

• Vaccinated children had increased risk of being diagnosed with learning disability.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, autism affects 1 in 68 American children. Data from 2006-2008 showed that 16 percent of American children had a developmental disability. These children were diagnosed with speech and language impairments, cerebral palsy, and autism. [5]

Many researchers remain stubbornly persistent on why they ditch the autism-vaccine hypothesis. It also doesn’t help that the medical community is struggling to explain what exactly causes autism if vaccines do not. [6]
