<garbage deleted>

The fact that you rely on natural news as a source says it all. Even if
you knew more things about mercury than I do, the quality of your
information, is far less than the quality of what I have learned plus
the knowledge I have of pathology, cell biology and human biology.

Quality counts, not quantity.

And, from what I have seen, the quality of what you know is sorely lacking.

PS, how you are able to understand the information is important too.
From what I see, you are not able to understand the info, either.

If mercury affected the same parts of the brain, then, hypothetically,
yes. But, because it affects different parts of the brain, then, mercury
doesn't cause autism.

Unless we start filling cavities when people vaccines, then so what?

And, the inflammation would be outside the brain. So what?

Remember what I said about quality of info, not quantity? That means you
have to be able to explain how the info is important and how it relates
to the subject at hand.

Actually, it is a way to die. In Philadelphia, and I am sure other
places, a kid was killed when he was getting chelation therapy for acute
lead poisoning. He was being given EDTA too fast or it was the wrong
salt (Na2CA EDTA instead of Ca2EDTA). This caused the calcium
concentration in his blood to go down, causing a heart arrythmia.

So EDTA can kill.

Methyl mercury is not ethyl mercury. It talks about power plants, not
vaccines. There is far more expose to methyl mercury, which is more
toxic than ethyl mercury. So this actually goes against your claim.

As I said, quality of information is important too, not just quantity.
