I had no idea that HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) contains mercury.
We've been avoiding foods with HFCS for about the last year.
My sister has mercury poisoning and that's most likely why she has trouble remembering.  They detected the mercury poisoning by having her resist to pressure on her arm while holding bottles with various metals.  She had no strength in her arm when holding the mercury bottle.  I have no idea WHY that works, but they confirmed the mercury poisoning through a lab test.
She thinks the mercury leaked from her dental fillings, but who knows.  Since the mercury ends up in the BRAIN, it's very hard to get rid of, but she's taking some algae stuff and hopefully it'll help.
I can understand that people get accidentally pois0ned, but to knowingly poison the entire populations through vaccines and foods is an atrocity.

Dumbing Down Society Pt 2: Mercury in Foods and Vaccines
Jul 9th, 2010 | By Vigilant | Category: Vigilant Reports
Even though mercury is known to degenerate brain neurons and disrupt the central nervous system, it is still found in processed foods and mandatory vaccines. In this second part of the series examining the intentional dumbing-down of society, this article will discuss the presence of mercury in common foods and vaccines.

The first article in this series – Dumbing Down Society Pt 1: Foods, Beverages and Meds – looked at the effects of aspartame, fluoride and prescription pills on the human brain. These substances all cause a decrease of cognitive power which, on a large scale, leads to a dumbing down of the population that is ingesting them. This second article focuses on another toxic product found in everyday foods and mandatory vaccines: mercury.
Mercury is a heavy metal naturally found in the environment. However, it is not suitable for human consumption, as it is extremely harmful to the human body, especially the brain. While some people say that anything can be consumed in moderation, many experts agree that no amount of mercury is safe for the human body. Despite this and the many studies concerning the negative effects of  mercury, the heavy metal is continually added to mandatory vaccines and processed foods.

Please DO read the entire article.  I'm so glad we're started to grow our own food.
