This three-part investigation focuses on an additive in vaccines called Thimerosal. The investigation reported that Thimerosal contains about 50 percent mercury and was first created and sold by Eli Lilly, a pharmaceutical company. Thimerosal has been used for over 70 years even though research has indicated that mercury is harmful to humans. The report also investigates a possible link between vaccines, Thimerosal and the rise of autism rates in children over the past decade.
