After recently reposting an article about Gardasil and its effects on young girls and boys, a friend asked me whether I could write something about the relationship between vaccines and autism.
I’m not sure that I am qualified enough to talk about this subject in great detail; since there is still a lot about autism and vaccines we do not know. However, what I can give you is enough information (hopefully) to make you want to further investigate for yourselves, and once you have investigated you’ll be able to make a formulated opinion of your own.
There has been a lot of controversy over the last two decades or so about the effects vaccines have on children. One of the main accusations brought against pharmaceutical companies is that many childhood vaccines cause autism in children.
If you look around the Internet, you will find information that backs this claim, information that says this claim is a complete falsehood and information that is impartial one way or the other. However, in order to make your own mind up you need to know what autism is and how it comes about in children.
Autism is a brain disorder that affects child development. It usually starts in childhood; continuing on through to adult life. The effects of autism vary. Some autistic children may have difficulty in communicating. Others may have repetitive behaviour. Others still may have difficulty in creating relationships with those around them. Yet, some manage to develop their own methods of communication and blossom into adults who live relatively independent lives.
In 1989, a study by Frith suggested that individuals with autism have difficulties in piecing together strands of information into one singular coherent thread. A study carried out by Carper et al. suggests that the cerebral cortex and the cerebrum white matter is enlarged in autistic children of 2 and 3 years of age; compared with children of the same age who do not have the condition.
In research by Belmont et al, it was found that autistic children create abnormal neural connections within the brain that are thought to be responsible for subsequent social, motor, communicative and behavioural disfunction. I use the word disfunction very lightly, since children with autism are always compared to a control group who does not have the condition and they are judged on the basis of behaviours and attitudes that society deems as “normal”. Yet, who are we to decide what is normal or not. Some autistic children and adults have shown us talents, in a number of fields, that border on pure genius; by societies standards.
The curious thing is that in the 1940s autism was relatively unknown. By the 1990s it had increased somewhat but nothing dramatic. Then, between 1993 and 2003 there was an 800% increase in autistic cases. I couldn’t find any statistics for 2011, but no doubt the number has increased dramatically again.
The biggest vaccine culprit ingredient that has been linked to autism is thimerosal, which is a derivative of mercury, and we still don’t know what the effects are of mercury in the body. However, we do know that it’s toxic.
Now, scouting around I found a few interesting facts, namely that: In 1900 the only vaccine children received was smallpox. By the 1960s, children received 5 different inoculation vaccines and by 1991, they received 8! Hence, the levels of thimerosal in the body increased with every vaccine.
Another noteworthy fact is that pharmaceutical companies started using Aluminum in some of their vaccines. Aside from being highly toxic, it was declared poisonous in every country. Yet, the FD considers it generally safe and has never (as far as known) conducted studies to verify its safety. The side effects are too many to mention; anything form renal failure to incoherent speech patterns to instant death at high levels of exposure. When it’s given intravenously it becomes neuro-toxic and the list goes on.
Some vaccines, like the H1N1, also contained a substance called Tween 80, which is also known as Polysorbate 80.
As I wrote in one of my previous articles, Tween 80 is a drug used to trick the blood brain barrier to open up so that nano-drugs can be carried through into the brain. However, in 2005, it was discovered that this drug can cause hives, breathing problems and a sharp enough drop in blood pressure to actually be fatal. Aside from this, it was found to cause infertility in mice.
I quote: http://www.whale.to/v/tween_80.html
According to the World Intellectual Property Organization, which is part of the United Nations, scientists from the organization are developing vaccines specifically to damage fertility as a method of contraception. A suggested ingredient for the vaccine is tween 80 (polysorbate 80): “In a preferred embodiment the vaccine comprises oil, preferably a biodegradable oil such as squalene oil. Typically, the vaccine is prepared using an adjuvant concentrate which contains lecithin in squalene oil. The aqueous solution glycoprotein is typically a phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) solution, and additionally preferably contains Tween 80.” (Fertility Impairing Vaccine And Methods of Use’ This application claims the benefit of U. S. Provisional Application No. 60/070,375, filed January 2,1998, U. S. Provisional Application No. 60/071,406, filed January 15,1998.) Exploring Vaccines
Now we know that Tween 80 can cause infertility and damage around the reproductive organs. It’s one of the culprits in Gardasil, which is making many young people sick, paralysed or at worst causing premature death. Generally, we need to be asking whether it’s possible that Tween 80 contributes to developmental problems once it and other nano drugs reach the brain. If the answer is yes, then there would be a definite link between vaccines and neural developmental conditions such as autism.
