From the late 1800’s through the 1950’s, Eli Lilly, and a host of other pharmaceutical companies marketed mercury-laden powders, ointments, syrups, and tablets to the general public.
Many infants who were given these products suffered horribly. Doctors named the condition Acrodynia, or
because it turns the hands and feet pink.
Many died from the condition, and many were left with lifelong debilitating conditions.
In fact, so many children died that the American and British governments forbade pharmaceutical companies to ever again advertise direct to consumers.
Eli Lilly has made Thimerosal since 1927. Thimerosal is used in vaccines and antiseptic
ointments, creams, jellies, sprays, nasal sprays, eye drops, and contact lens solutions.
Thimerosal contains mercury. Mercury rarely remains un-bonded to other elements, readily bonding with sulfur in the human body. Mercury is an extremely dangerous neurotoxin in any form.
The one consistent symptom of the mercury poisoned is that they are anxious, fearful and often times depressed. Intuitively they know something is wrong, but they know not the source. They ask their doctor for help and the doctor prescribes an antidepressant like Prozac.
Eli Lilly patented Prozac, their number one selling class of drugs is antidepressants.
