Although I accept your arguement that the MMR vaccine appears to have (statistically) no link with autism there are many experts who dispute this which still leaves the jury out on this one.
No it doesn't, especially when the term "expert" is so readily thrown about. But anyway, that's not the point as you said.
What benefits are there to be had from these vaccines?
Your body can recognise and deal with H1N1 antibodies readily.
What (if any) amount of mercury/thimerosal is a safe amount?
That's a pretty barbed question, since any amount of certain substances would theoretically lower your life expectancy curve minutely if there negative effects are looked at alone -- red wine is a major example. A small glass of it still has enough alcohol that theoretically it would shorten your life by 8 seconds. But in actual fact, probably not.
But the short answer is, your body can deal with quite a lot of mercury in the short term. Just not grams of it.
What are the exact (measures) ingredients of the H1N1 vaccines?
Attenutated H1N1, isotonic sugar solution and preservative, I can only assume. I don't know the measures by heart.
What are all of the side effects (long term as well as short)?
Welp in the long term as it's used, nothing. Thiomersal has a shrot half life in the body. In medical terms, ie "if you took it every x days", I don't know.
Is thimerosal even needed in the vaccine?
In the one it's being used for (which as I understand, is no longer planned for wide use) it is needed.
I wonder about an expert  fished out by Fox news who can't recognise mt syndrome and doesn't deny the autism link...what you're doing is making an appeal to authority through a man who, to my mind, holds no authority.
