All pregnant women should know that any drug can affect their growing fetus and result in fetal malformations and birth injuries. Fetal damage can come from nearly every class of drugs.
Thatâ€™s whyÂ chiropracticâ€™s drug-free approach is such a blessing to pregnant women. It is best to especially avoid the mercury-laden flu shot that is being recommended for pregnant women. One of the main ingredients in the flu shot is thimerosal (mercury). Mercury can pass through the placenta and accumulate in the unborn child. Mercury is toxic and can cause damage to the brain and nervous system to the developing bodies of unborn babies, infants and young children.
On July 7, 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the United States Public Health Service (PHS) issued a joint statement that because of the â€œneuro-developmental effects posed by exposure to thimerosalâ€, â€œthimerosal-containing vaccines should be removed as soon as possible.â€ The PHS and AAP recognized that because of thimerosal in vaccines, some children would be exposed to â€œa cumulative level of mercury over the first six months of life that exceeds one of the federal guidelines on methyl mercury.â€ Why risk having an autistic or brain-injured child by having brain-toxic chemicals injected into the mother?
