NEJM Clears (Mostly) Thimerosol

In what is a relatively uncommon event in the last few years, the New England Journal of Medicine has good news this week for pharma, or at least vaccine manufacturers.  A new study published there largely clears the the mercury in thimerosol in vaccines from causing autism:
