Keep Methylation Central
Any one would have problems with Thimerosal…
Hi, I am Dr Nancy Mullan,
I help people with chronic disease who are open to working with dietary change and genetics based nutritional supplementation, and who want to go back to developing their lives as opposed to dealing with illness.
Thimerosal is the mercury-laden preservative that is used in flu shots and other vaccines. Thimerosal damages your genes in three ways:
Number Three Kind of Damage:
Thimerosal damages your genes by inhibiting key enzymes in the production pathway of methyl groups, which are central regulators of gene function, and which also repair gene structure.
Thimerosal has the chemical structure and formulation described below:
Thimerosal releases organic mercury into your body. Organic mercury is an old and familiar poison. The Mad Hatter from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland demonstrates just how long it has been common knowledge that mercury causes neurological degeneration.
The Hatter was mad, out of his mind, because people who made hats were known to use mercury and suffer neurological damage in the process.
Mercury in even nano gram amounts inhibits a key enzyme in the biochemical pathway that makes methyl groups, a one-carbon, three-hydrogen molecule, that is central to the regulation of gene function and the repair of gene structure.
Methyl groups help to turn genes on and turn genes off. Methylation is a regulator of DNA function. It also edits DNA transcription and repairs breaks in the DNA structure.
Methylation silences DNA: it acts to keep viral DNA static, to keep it from reproducing and becoming an infection.
Methylation is the attachment of a methyl group on to another molecule. If you do not have enough methyl groups in your body, inadequate methylation is the result.
You may not have enough methyl groups because of an enzyme problem like MTHFR+, or because you’ve been exposed to an enzyme poison such as mercury.
Lack of methylation allows DNA that should be silent to be expressed. Viruses can insert their DNA into your own body’s DNA. When you do not have enough methylation capacity, that viral DNA can no longer be silenced, and can grow, express itself, and proliferate.
The MMR vaccine is a live virus vaccine. Two out of the three viruses in the MMR are retroviruses. A retrovirus is a kind of virus that can insert itself into your DNA.
Someone with adequate methylation may tolerate this vaccine because the injected and proliferating virus can be kept quiet. Someone without adequate methylation is at risk from any vaccine containing virus.
Number Two Kind of Damage:
Thimerosal is very closely chemically related to a drug that is used to inhibit the growth of DNA.
The figure above depicts o-mercaptobenzoic acid. O-mercaptobenzoic acid is a drug which is used to treat HIV.
HIV is a retrovirus so it can insert its DNA into your DNA sequences, both reproducing and living in your cell as a host by doing this.
Many drugs that are used to treat HIV and cancer work by inhibiting the enzymes in key pathways for the synthesis of DNA and RNA bases.
DNA and RNA bases are purines and pyrimidines. They are required for the production of new cells. This drug is used for both aids and cancer, in which diseases you have rapidly growing cells that you want to stop from dividing.
If you inhibit DNA synthesis, the cells can’t divide. In the case of HIV or cancer, that’s a benefit.
In the case of a child whose body needs to develop, or anyone wanting to have normal gastrointestinal mucosa, healthy wound healing, or good immune function, it works against you.
Looking at the chemical structure of thimerosal in Figure 2, you can see that it is very similar to that of o-mercaptobenzoic acid. Cleavage can occur at the sulfur-mercury bond, and the release of ethyl mercury happens.
Many researchers and clinicians have been primarily concerned about the release of organic mercury from thimerosal. But if you look at what is left behind after mercury is cleaved off, you see a molecule that is very close to the chemical structure of o-mercaptobenzoic acid, a chemical that can inhibit the growth of a retrovirus by acting on its ability to make DNA.
The biochemical pathway that MTHFR+ affects is the same one that makes DNA bases. If you have a problem with MTHFR and someone injects you with thimerosal, you are going to have double trouble trying to make new DNA. In particular, you will not be able to make thymidine because thymidine has to be methylated, and MTHFR+ inhibits your ability to make methyl groups.
Number One Kind of Damage:
Thimerosal conforms to the basic structure of DNA bases and may substitute in the DNA for some bases.
The DNA bases are pyrimidines and purines, the structures on the right in the above figure. The chemical structure of thimerosal is very similar to the DNA bases themselves. Look at thimerosal drawn two different ways in Figure 3.
DNA bases are also called nucleotides. It is known that mercurated nucleotides, nucleotides with a mercury molecule deliberately put on it, will incorporate into your DNA.
Thimerosal can form up like a DNA base, incorporate into your DNA and get stuck there. Your DNA is not going to work properly with that foreign molecule there.
When are you going to say enough to thimerosal administration in vaccines, any vaccine?
As a consumer, you have a lot of power. Just as boycott is going to finish GMO foods and accomplish what legislation does not, boycott can wrap it up for thimerosal in vaccines.
Drug companies will not make what people will not buy. You can vote with your feet…
You have got to figure that if thimerosal is so deadly to contaminants in a vaccine, it might be bad for you also…
I hope this helps you understand the many ways in which thimerosal can interfere with your biochemical functioning.
I hope this helps you ‘just say no’ to vaccines that contain thimerosal, like the flu shot, which is recommended for the young, the sick, the pregnant and the elderly, just the people who are most vulnerable to the problems of this drug.
My Tuesday night call is your chance to learn what you need to know to get important areas of your health and biochemistry understood.
I take your questions on many topics, among them the impact of your personal genetics on your biochemistry. I discuss how to balance your biochemistry with nutritional supplements that bypass problem genetics.
It is up to YOU to avoid the hazards that are put in the way of your health.
You need to know about the role of optimizing both methyl group production and your capacity for methylation.
This is your opportunity.
My Tuesday evening calls are ongoing. They happen every week. There is no charge to come on this call. It is a free forum where you can ask your questions. I am there to help you, and I have a group of experienced patients who will give you their insights also.
It’s a great way to answer your most pressing questions, clear up confusion, overcome the obstacles you may be having, and get on the path to wellness.
The time: Tuesday at 5:00 PM Pacific Time
(8:00 PM Eastern, 7:00 PM Central, 6:00 PM Mountain)
The number to call in the US: (559) 726-1300
The access code: 986935#
International access numbers are available.
Join us to inform yourself so that you can be proactive about your health!
So excellent! I literally learn something on every single call and I get clarification on things that have been lingering in my mind…
You are giving people a huge gift by empowering them… It’s about helping the patient become their own healer by taking them to a higher level of consciousness…
Thank you so much Dr. Mullan. Thank you so, so much for everything you do.
Wow! I have to tell you, this was such an uplifting call. It’s so nice to hear good news especially about a child. Anxiety, OCD and a host of other mental/psychiatric symptoms have been a huge hurdle for me. So to hear this story of all those awful symptoms totally going away is such a bright light for me!!!!
JOIN US ON TUESDAY NIGHT!
