Scientific Evidence Suggests The Vaccine-Autism Link Can No Longer Be Ignored

Vaccine-childConcerns regarding vaccinations continue to increase exponentially in light of all of the information and documentation that has surfaced over the past few years. As a result, corporate media has responded to alternative media, stating that the increase of persons who are choosing to opt out of vaccines and the recommended vaccine schedule is a result of ‘fear mongering.’ This may not be too surprising as the corporate media is owned by the major vaccine manufacturers, and the major vaccine manufacturers are owned by corporate media(1)(2)(3)(4). Given this fact, it’s easy to fathom the possibility that these institutions are desperately trying to protect the reputation of their product.

For example, if we take a look at GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, they are owned by the same financial institutions and groups that own Time Warner (CNN, HBO etc.) and General Electric (NBC, Comcast, Universal Pictures etc.).(1)(2)(3)(4) This is seen throughout all of the major vaccine manufacturers and all of the 6 corporations that control our mainstream media. Keep in mind that these are the major funders of all ‘medical research’ that’s used to administer drugs and vaccinations. Despite these connections, medical research and documentation exists to show that vaccines might indeed be a cause for concern.

Vaccines and Autism, Both Sides of The Coin

Here we will simply present information from both sides of the coin because many are not even aware that two sides exist. We’ve presented multiple studies, citing multiple research papers and published research conducted by doctors and Universities from all across the world.  Here is an example of a paper that describes how vaccine manufactures and medical ‘experts’ with drug industry connections have been aware of the multiple dangers associated with vaccinations for over 30 years. We’d also like to present medical research that indicates the many dangers associated with vaccines, and have done this on multiple occasions. We do this because the safety of vaccinations is commonly pushed by the mainstream media, without ever mentioning or citing the abundant medical research that should also be taken into consideration when discussing vaccinations. Please keep in mind that there is evidence on both sides. At the same time, some of the evidence on the side that negates a positive outlook on vaccination has been labelled fraudulent, but then again many haven’t.

The vaccine-autism debate has been going on for years. It has been a tale of shifting beliefs as child vaccination rates remain high. On February 1998, Andrew Wakefield, a British gastroenterologist and his colleagues published a paper that supposedly linked Autism to Vaccines(5). More specifically, he claimed that the MMR vaccine was responsible for intestinal inflammation that led to translocation of usually non-permeable peptides to the bloodstream and, subsequently, to the brain, where they affected development(5). His work was unpublished, and he lost his medical license despite the fact multiple studies seem to support Andrew Wakefield’s work (here is one example, and here is another.) He has been labelled a fraud by the mainstream medical world, some experts claim that his research and methods are weak and based on very little evidence. Dr Wakefield’s research will NOT be used in this article.

At the same time I must mention that multiple studies from around the world have concluded that there is no link between Autism and the MMR Vaccine(5). It can become quite a confusing subject given that we have multiple medical studies contradicting each other. Was Dr. Wakefield exposing something that the medical industry did not want you to know? It is known that vaccine manufacturers suppress harmful data regarding their product, as mentioned and illustrated earlier in the article. Regardless of the MMR vaccine and autism debate, there are still a number of studies that link vaccines to a possible autism connection. Please keep in mind that multiple courts worldwide have ruled in favour of vaccines causing autism, brain damage and other complications (6)(7), that include the MMR vaccine.

Here is a great video narrated by Rob Schneider outlining the vaccine-autsim link. Below that you will find a list of 22 medical studies that show possible connections to vaccines and autism. Please keep in mind that we’ve only presented 22 studies here, there are many more published papers that document the link. Hopefully this inspires you to further your research on the subject. Also keep in mind that Autism is only one of the multiple shown consequences of vaccine administration, as they have been linked to a number of other ailments. 

 1. A study published in the Journal Annals of Epidemiology has shown that giving the Hepatitis B vaccine to newborn baby boys could triple the risk of developing an autism spectrum disorder compared to boys who were not vaccinated as neonates. The  research was conducted at Stony Brook University Medical Centre, NY.

2. A study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry  by researchers at the Neural Dynamics Group, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of British Columbia determined that Aluminum, a highly neurotoxic metal and the most commonly used vaccine adjuvant may be a significant contributing factor to the rising prevalence of ASD in the Western World.  They showed that the correlation between ASD prevalence and the Aluminum adjuvant exposure appears to be the highest at 3-4 months of age. The studies also show that children from countries with the highest ASD appear to have a much higher exposure to Aluminum from vaccines. The study points out that several prominent milestones of brain development coincide with major vaccination periods for infants. These include the onset of synaptogenesis (birth), maximal growth velocity of the hippocampus and the onset of amygdala maturation. Furthermore, major developmental transition in many bio-behavioural symptoms such as sleep, temperature regulation, respiration and brain wave patterns, all of which are regulated by the neuroendocrine network. Many of these aspects of brain function are known to be impaired in autism, such as sleeping and brain wave patterns.

According to the FDA, vaccines represent a special category of drugs as they are generally given to healthy individuals. Further according to the FDA, “this places significant emphasis on their vaccine safety”. While the FDA does set an upper limit for Aluminum in vaccines at no more that 850/mg/dose, it is important to note that this amount was selected empirically from data showing that Aluminum in such amounts enhanced the antigenicity of the vaccine, rather than from existing safety. Given that the scientific evidence appears to indicate that vaccine safety is not as firmly established as often believed, it would seem ill advised to exclude paediatric vaccinations as a possible cause of adverse long-term neurodevelopment outcomes , including those associated with autism.

3. A study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Part A: Current Issues by the Department of Economics and Finance at the University of New York shows how researchers suspect one or more environmental triggers are needed to develop autism, regardless of whether individuals have a genetic predisposition or not. They determined that one of those triggers might be the “battery of vaccinations that young children receive.” Researchers found a positive and statistically significant relationship between autism and vaccinations. They determined that the higher the proportion of children receiving recommended vaccinations, the higher the prevalence of autism. A 1 % increase in vaccination was associated with an additional 680 children having autism. The results suggest that vaccines may be linked to autism and encourages more in depth study before continually administering these vaccines.

4. A study published in the Journal of Toxicology by the Department of Neurosurgery at The Methodist Neurological Institute in Houston has shown that ASD is a disorder caused by a problem in brain development. They looked at B-cells and their sensitivity levels to thimerosal, a commonly used additive in many vaccines. They determined that ASD patients have a heightened sensitivity to thimerosal which would restrict cell proliferation that is typically found after vaccination. The research shows that individuals who have this hypersensitivity to thimerosal could make them highly susceptible to toxins like thimerosal, and that individuals with a mild mitochondrial defect may be affected by thimerosal. The fact that ASD patients’ B cells exhibit hypersensitivity to thimerosal tells us something.

5. A study published in the Journal of Biomedical Sciences determined that the autoimmunity to the central nervous system may play a causal role in autism. Researchers discovered that because many autistic children harbour elevated levels of measles antibodies, they should conduct a serological study of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and myelin basic protein (MBP) autoantibodies. They used serum samples of 125 autistic children and 92 controlled children. Their analysis showed a significant increase in the level of MMR antibodies in autistic children. The study concludes that the autistic children had an inappropriate or abnormal antibody response to MMR. The study determined that autism could be a result from an atypical measles infection that produces neurological symptoms in some children. The source of this virus could be a variant of MV, or it could be the MMR vaccine.

6. Study published in the Annals of Clinical Psychiatry  suggests that Autism is likely triggered by a virus, and that measles virus (MV and/or MMR vaccine) might be a very good candidate. It supports the hypothesis that a virus-dincued autoimmune response may play a causal role in autism.

7. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition determined that an increased vulnerability to oxidative stress and decreased capacity for methylation may contribute to the development and clinical manifestation of autism. It’s well known that viral infections cause increased oxidative stress. Research suggests that metals, including those found in many vaccines are directly involved in increasing oxidative stress.

8A study published by the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Northeastern University, Boston determined that a novel growth factor signalling pathway that regulates methionine synthase(MS) activity and thereby modulates methylation reactions. The potent inhibition of this pathway by ethanol, lead, mercury, aluminum and thimerosal suggests that it may be an important target of neurodevelopmental toxins. You can read more about this here, and here.  You can read more about the MS/autism link here

9A study published in the Journal of Child Neurology examined the question of what is leading to the apparent increase in autism. They expressed  that if there is any link between autism and mercury, it is crucial that the first reports of the question are not falsely stating that no link occurs. Researchers determined that a significant relation does exist between the blood levels of mercury and the diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder.

10. A study published in the Journal of Child Neurology noted that autistic spectrum disorders can be associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. Researchers determined that children who have mitochondrial-related dysfunctional cellular energy metabolism might be more prone to undergo autistic regression between 18 and 30 months of age if they also have infections or immunizations at the same time.

11. A study conducted by Massachusetts General Hospital at the Centre for Morphometric Analysis by the department of Paediatric Neurology illustrates how autistic brains have a growth spurt shortly after birth and then slow in growth a few short years later. Researchers have determined that neuroinflammation appears to be present in autistic brain tissue from childhood through adulthood. The study excerpt reads:

Oxidative stress, brain inflammation and microgliosis have been much documented in association with toxic exposures including various heavy metals. The awareness that the brain as well as medical conditions of children with autism may be conditioned by chronic biomedical abnormalities such as inflammation opens the possibility that meaningful biomedical interventions may be possible well past the window of maximal neuroplasticity in early childhood because the basis for assuming that all deficits can be attributed to fixed early developmental alterations in net

12, A study conducted by the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Arkansas determined that thimerosal-induced cytotoxicity was associated with the depletion of intracellular glutathione (GSH) in both cell lines.  The study outlines how many vaccines have been neurotoxic, especially to the developing brain. Depletion of GSH is commonly associated with autism. Although thimerosal has been removed from most children’s vaccines, it is still present in flu vaccines given to pregnant women, the elderly and to children in developing countries.

13. A study published in the Public Library of Science (PLOS)  determined that elevation in peripheral oxidative stress is consistent with, and may contribute to more severe functional impairments in the ASD group. We know that oxidative stress is triggered by heavy metals, like the ones contained in multiple vaccines.

14. A study conducted by the University of Texas Health Science Centre by the Department of Family and Community Medicine determined that for each 1,000 Ib of environmentally released mercury, there was a 43% increase in the rate of special education services and a 61% increase in the rate of autism. Researchers emphasized that further research was needed regarding the association between environmentally released mercury and developmental disorders such as autism.

15. A study published in the International Journal of Toxicology determined that in light of the biological plausibility of mercury’s role in neurodevelopment disorders, the present study provides further insight into one possible mechanism by which early mercury exposures could increase the risk of autism.

16. A study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health determined that mercury exposure can induce immune, sensory, neurological, motor and behavioural dysfunctions similar to traits defining or associated with ASDs. Based upon differential diagnoses, 8 of 9 patients examined were exposed to significant mercury from Thimerosal-containing vaccine preparations during their fetal/infant developmental periods. These previously normal developing children suffered mercury encephalopathies that manifested with clinical symptoms consistent with regressive ASDs. Evidence for mercury intoxication should be considered in the differential diagnosis as contributing to some regressive ASDs.

 17. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine conducted by the University of Texas Health Science Centre suspected that persistent low-dose exposures to various environmental toxicants including mercury, that occur during critical windows of neural development among genetically susceptible children, may increase the risk for developmental disorders such as autism.

18. A study conducted by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine showed that Macaques are commonly used in pre-clinical vaccine safety testing. Collective Evolution does not support animals testing, we feel there is a large amount of evidence and research that already indicated the links to vaccines in which some animals have been used to illustrate. The objective of this study was to compare early infant cognition and behaviour with amygdala size and opioid binding in rhesus macaques receiving the recommended childhood vaccines. The animal model, which examines for the first time, behavioural, functional and neuromorphometric consequences of the childhood vaccine regimen, mimics certain neurological abnormalities of autism. These findings raise important safety issues while providing a potential model for examining aspects of causation and disease pathogenesis in acquired disorders of behaviour and development.

19. A study conducted by The George Washington University School of Public Health from the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics determined that significantly increased rate ratios were observed for autism and autism spectrum disorders as a result of exposure to mercury from Thimerosal-containing vaccines.

20. A study published in the Journal Cell Biology and Toxicology by Kinki University in Osaka, Japan determined that in combination with the brain pathology observed in patients diagnosed with autism, the present study helps to support the possible biological plausability for how low-dose exposure to mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines may be associated with autism.

21.  A study published by the Journal Lab Medicine determined that vaccinations may be one of the triggers for autism. Researchers discovered that substantial data demonstrates immune abnormality in many autistic children consistent with impaired resistance to infection, activation of inflammatory responses and autoimmunity. Impaired resistance may predispose to vaccine injury in autism.

22A study published in the Journal Neurochemical Research determined that since excessive accumulation of extracellular glutamate is linked with excitotoxicity, data implies that neonatal exposure to thimerosal-containing vaccines might induce excitotoxic brain injuries, leading to neurodevelopmental disorders.

    Please note the first scientific study this article links to states there is no relation in the second paragraph of the abstract by saying the theories tested on the association of autism and the measles vaccination failed. Additionally the study goes on to discredit the Wakefield et al. study by stating the lack of validity, the lack of systematic data, and that some of the children didn’t have gastrointestinal problems until AFTER the diagnosis of autism. There are more reasons stated in the study, but I think you get my point.
    As for the rest of it, remember correlation does not equate to causation. A fun example I heard was “I ate eggs for breakfast, then my shoes came untied. Eating eggs loosens shoelaces!” Just because your child received a vaccination(ate eggs) and was diagnosed with Autism (untied shoes) doesn’t mean the vaccination caused it.

      This, and every article regarding health, healing and medicine, (Excluding Trauma) is nothing more than idea or theory turned into popular hearsay. For those of you who think I am making this up, WHY DO YOU THINK TODAY’S commercialized NATURAL and WESTERN PHARMACEUTICAL medicine ALWAYS FAIL to cure and or prevent any new diseases? Matter of fact, diseases that were once curable by old school medicine and science 70 years ago like polio are no longer curable and preventable by new school COMMERCIAL medicine and science.

      Today’s scientific evidence PROVES that commercial science doesn’t know how to cure or prevent disease and consumers call them “experts”?

        Dave, do you, friends, relatives or acquaintances have polio? Why or why not? CDC claims it has been generally eradicated world wide. How did that happen? You’ve been watching too much Dr. Oz and his magic beans. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/23/john-oliver-dr-oz-dietary-supplements_n_5521413.html

        • No Tom, I do not have any friends or family with polio. I’m immune to disease so I don’t have to worry about disease at all. My friends do pretty good, some are immune to disease too. It does crack me up how impotent some people are when it comes to using their God given immune system the way nature intends. But California on the other hand seems to be having an outbreak epidemic of polio. It’s crazy how OLD SCHOOL honest righteous scientist discovered a cure and prevention for polio only so NEW SCHOOL commercial science can bring it back to California.

          As for Dr. Oz, what a useless piece of commercialized trash he is. I get the feeling Tom that you know me as well as you know your own immune system, meaning you don’t know me at all. I despise all ineffective medicine, especially ALL OF NATURAL MEDICINE, at least some of western medicine is effective, mostly only trauma medicine and of course I like Ibuprofen. LOVE IT!

          But when it comes to curing and preventing disease today, nah ha, never ever gonna happen, they learned their lesson when they cured polio the first time. WOOPSIE, killed the golden goose there, didn’t they. That will never happen again.

          As for you and your immune system, yep, that’s right you don’t know “beans” about it. THE ONE THING YOU WILL NEVER HEAR TOM SAY TO HIS KIDS, “Honey, let me tell you about your immune system” because you don’t know a thing about it and you could google for two weeks straight and never know what your immune system is capable of doing.

          Let me point you in the right direction and save you years of researching.

            Dave: CDC claims polio has been generally eradicated world wide. How did that happen without your assistance?

          • Tom, there was a time when medicine was about science and helping people now it is about industry and profit which is why they will no longer cure or prevent polio.

            About 5 years ago there were still several disease believed to be eradicated by once righteous science and medicine but about a month ago I went online to see what disease where still classified as “curable” and low and behold Polio is ripping through the state of California, you know the state on the west end of the US. They may give it a new name to save some face but today’s commercialized medicine has decided to resurrect Polio for profit. Big business.

            Nope, there will never be a new cure or prevention through today’s commercialized medicine and science for hire. All the diseases once curable or preventable have been renamed and are going strong even polio.

        While it may be true that scientists receive some type of funding for their research, institutional or otherwise, each scientific study has to follow a specific format set out by the publisher in order to be published. These formats range widely, but in general they include information on past studies (general and specific to their study), the methods they used to conduct the research (how they selected participants, the design of their research, measurement of variables, and instruments used to measure the variables), results, discussion of results (synthesize the findings and address viable explanations for the findings, as well as cite any limitations and shortcomings of the study along with aspects of the study to be explored in the future), and a conclusion with references, notes, and acknowledgements.
        Anyone who knows their basic scientific research skills can tell if the information put out by a study is valid and reliable by reading the study. If the selection of subjects was not random there is no external validity, meaning the study may be true for the selected subjects, but there is no way to generalize it to the rest of the population. So while SOME studies may become “popular hearsay”, true doctors, scientists, and anyone who remembers their research skills from high school, will probably read a research report and see the lack of validity and reliability in the study. Doctors let their patients know that, as well as other people (generally on the internet). There are also studies that are valid and reliable, and while no one can come right off the bat and say “Yes, this is 100% true” previous studies that have investigated and further studies will investigate the same situation will show a basic trend, such as vaccinations (weakened forms of viruses) help humans to build up immunity to the disease caused by the virus by stimulating the immune system which produces antibodies to fight off the weakened virus before it actually infects us. The immune system works slowly at first exposure, but after initial contact the immune system ‘remembers’ how to fight off the germs and brings up this memory whenever similar germs are detected. This GREATLY reduces one’s risk of developing a disease because the body has been trained to fight it off by contracting it and already knowing how to fight it off. Without these vaccinations, it is harder for our bodies to fight of diseases as they’ve never seen it before, it may take several days to fight off and can result in hospitalization and possibly deadly complications. So yes you may survive, but not everyone who contracts the disease will. There will always be a percentage of the population who will die from any given disease or related complications and those who don’t die may end up hospitalized for days.

        • Yes Deb, your copy and paste explains the COMMERCIAL process of scientific study which is why there is no such thing as real scientific study today.

          For there to be REAL scientific study today we would have to start from scratch, but before we do that we would have to forsake capitalism and create a righteous economic system that does not rely on supply and demand and because we all know that will not happen we have to accept that there will never be any real science again.

          Today’s science as you so well pointed out is based on commercial opportunity. Scientist are trained in commercialized hypothesis.

          hy·poth·e·sis
          noun \hī-ˈpä-thə-səs\

          : an idea or theory that is not proven but that leads to further study or discussion

          Because today’s science is about stacking one opinion on top of another, or one theory on top of another, and because there is no actual demand or even real expectation of anyone providing any useable results such as a cure or prevention they can pretty much do whatever they need to do to make the so-called “research” pay off.

          A person trained to be scientific isn’t trained to be scientific, they are trained in using commercialized methods of science for hire. They are trained in the skill of professional failure. They are trained to fail yet look good while they do it.

          If a modern trained kid from Harvard accidentally discovered a cure or prevention he or she would find no market for it. But because they are educated to fail because their education base is based solely on hy·poth·e·sis

          ……there is no risk of them every finding a cure or prevention.

          No, like there will never be any cures or preventions there will never be any real scientist, just a bunch of brainwashed kids stacking one theory onto another for big BUCK.

            Please stop defining hypothesis I am well aware of the definition from the various college level courses I have previously taken in the field and it is insulting to my intelligence. There are more healthcare systems in place in the world than the terrible privatized health insurance of the United States. Many countries utilize taxes to help their citizens have universal coverage. Other countries allow competition between providers of medical equipment and parts such as replacement hips. That’s right, COMPETITION. Patients have choices when it comes to things such as a replacement hip, and having a decision to make in which hip to use for their replacement. This means the companies selling this replacement aren’t going to drive up their prices for supply and demand, because that’s not the model in place. The ‘consumer’ ultimately has the choice so companies attempt to make their ‘product’ more desirable to the consumer, which includes price.
            Now, let’s look at the pay scale for the United Kingdom. The average yearly salary for a research scientist in the UK is about £29,720. The average salary for a secondary school teacher (equivalent to high school in the US), is £29,242. That’s a big difference, you think those secondary school teachers are getting paid off like the researchers? (can you detect my sarcasm?) The difference in the US is the salary for the research scientist is $74,105 and a teacher is $44,524. Now lets look at another job. Salary for a family physician in the UK is £39,995, a little bit over £10,000 (equivalent to a $17,000 difference). Family physicians get paid $149,174, a $75,000 difference. See a trend here? I’m not arguing that the current system isn’t broken, I’m arguing that not all research is ‘paid off’ by big corporations.
            We have standard procedures available in order to limit bias and unnecessary risk and maximize the use of research time. Scientists would spend years proving their ideas in biased ways. One great example is Sigmund Freud. At the time, his ideas were considered revolutionary, his studies conducted with great bias and many of his ideas have proven to be completely wrong. His bias helped him come to many various conclusions that were hilariously wrong. This is indeed how science works. Ideas are believed to come with strong evidence, people research further and find these ideas may be totally false, other ideas may have some reasoning to them and further research provides more insight. Research is never expected to come out a certain way. There is always the doubt. That is what drives researchers on to more tests, more studies, the search for the impossible absolute “yes” and absolute “no”. Those hardly exist in science, as everything is a probability from prior causes. Absolute answers are nearly impossible to obtain because with each and every individual participant, there is going to be some sort of variation. We are not all exactly same, each procedure is not exactly the same. We are merely probing around looking nearby for answers.

          • Outside of trauma there is no need for science and medicine to be mixed up together because humans have an immune system. If science was not strictly commercial you and your friends would be immune to disease right now. As it is, only myself and a few others are vested in the capacity of the human immune system.

            You can’t be immune to disease because you have been to told it is impossible through your brilliant commercial education so there is no chance of you ever considering your immune system as an option because if you could be healthy YOU BELIEVE YOU WOULD KNOW. That’s a dangerous assumption.

            No matter what the CDC says, no matter, what universities say, no matter what commercialized brain washed scientist say the results NEVER change. FAILURE FAILURE FAILURE and no one even knows they have an immune system perfectly capable of keeping them healthy and disease free. That’s why you have a tough sale, nothing you can say will change the fact that commercial medicine and commercial science fail because they can’t do anything more than hypothesize, because that’s all they are allowed to do. They aren’t allowed to cure and prevent disease, they are a business and cures and preventions are bad business.

            Believe me, I more than anyone wishes you could make a case for commercial medicine, commercial education, commercial science. I wish they would cure and prevent disease, I really really really do but they wont.

            Improving health is the responsibility of the individual. That is the only chance for health improvement.

            Dear David, I would like to point out that I, a 15 year old student, has a better understanding of the world around them then you. In class, I have to write an argument on why children should be vaccinated. I found over 20 websites in under 10 minutes, disproving all the close minded ideas you contain. It continues to shock me every day that a student can find astronomical amounts of evidence on countless websites, government and not. Yet you can not find more information then a 2 year old. What is the world coming to where people would happily take the chance that they might have to watch their children die a slow and painful death, instead of getting them vaccinated? In my opinion, you should be seen similar to murderers and tormentors. How do I know that you aren’t secretly conspiring with funeral agencies to earn more money on the bodies of dead children, as you so claim scientists do with vaccines. Please, for the sake of man kind, take off your tin foil hat and start believing that not everything is a conspiracy.

  2. “A single vaccine given to a six-pound newborn is the equivalent of giving a 180-pound adults 30 vaccinations on the same day. I think that the biological case against Thimerosal is so dramatically overwhelming anymore that only a very foolish or a very dishonest person with credentials to understand this research would say that Thimerosal wasn’t most likely the case of autism”
    —Boyd Haley, Professor and Chair, Department of Chemistry, University of Kentucky. (source)
    And the leading proponent of mass (forced) vaccinations (Dr. Paul Offit) stated that a newborn could handle 10,000 vaccinations without injury. He’s the quack that has made $30 million in vaccine royalties. No conflict of interest there, right Offit?
    I think Offit, or as I like to call him “Mengele”, should take those 10,000 shots himself, just to prove how safe and effective he says they really are. I think that would put this whole pro-/anti-vaccine debate to rest.

    • winterhawk

      Dear comrade norbrooker: WRT thiomerisol: A danish study of half a million children showed that cases of autism continued to rise after thimerisol was elimnated from childhood vaccines. http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/112/3/604.short

      Likewise, the Danes found no link between MMR and autism: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa021134

      How do you explain that?

      You claim: “The leading proponent of mass (forced) vaccinations (Dr. Paul Offit) stated that a newborn could handle 10,000 vaccinations without injury.” That’s a logical fallacy. Just because Offit, a virologist and immunologist, thinks a baby can handle numerous vaccines does not mean he forces them on anyone.

      Can you provide a credible reference to your claim that Offit made $30M on vaccine royalties? I cannot find it.

      Finally, a general comment taken from here: http://www.skepticalraptor.com/skepticalraptorblog.php/debunking-myths-dr-paul-offit/

      I still cannot understand why people with no education in the fields of vaccines, immunology, medicine and/or pediatrics think that they know more than an expert. Is it because people feel empowered by uninformative websites? Is it because they think that they know more than a highly educated and trained physician? To become a physician and researcher of Dr. Offit’s level takes 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, 2-3 years of internship and residency, 4-7 years of further training, and constant retraining and studying of anything new. Most of that time, it requires nearly 100% focus on studying and training. He’s obviously far surpassed Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hours of training–I bet that Dr. Offit is on his fourth or fifth round of 10,000 hours.

      Vaccine denialists think they can throw around words like “immune system”, or “mercury poisoning”, or “autism can be ‘cured’” haven’t a clue. The immune system takes years to understand. It is a complex system of immunoglobulins, cells, proteins, and organs (and I’m probably missing something) that has a nearly infinite number of permutations. Researchers spend years to just understand one tiny portion of the immune system. How can someone do that with a college degree in art, reading google hits for a few hours? They can’t.

      Dr. Offit rocks. And Vaccines Save Lives.

      • Yet all the information you linked to is PURE 100% hypothesis being generated and created by people who claim their credentials make them “experts” even though they cannot cure or prevent any disease or save any lives outside of trauma. Winterhawk, your blind loyalty will be your demise as it will be for anyone who has to rely on modern medicine natural or pharmaceutical.

        Is there any TRUE evidence that vaccines are harmful or helpful? No there is not, there is ONLY hypothesis and those who have years and years of work in the field have failed the whole time. People get autism because the medical industry has no intentions of preventing it or curing it.

        There is only ONE way to stay healthy and that is the human immune system which you winterhawk will NEVER know anything about unless you choose to disregard your loyalty to the failing industry of healthcare and science fiction behind it. My guess is, you won’t learn about your immune system because to learn the truth about the human immune system is to learn the truth about today’s healthcare industry. It fails 99.9% of the time because it is 100% wrong, when it does succeed it isn’t because the medicine is choice, it is because the person who healed used their own immune system to heal and the medicine was placebo.

        Do people need to be vaccinated? NOT IF THEY ARE IMMUNE TO DISEASE! Will people be immune to disease? Not if they remain loyal to today’s industry of healthcare that is designed and created to fail because profit is in the failure not success.

        When someone learns to use their immune system as it is designed to be used they don’t get vaccinated and they don’t debate the issue either because vaccines are for the ignorant. People who don’t know any better. I’m saying vaccines cause autism but I am saying people who are immune to disease will not need them and will not run any risk from harmful side effects because they won’t use them.

        If people refuse to be immune to disease by their own power why not let them be vaccinated, survival of the fittest.

          TI: Claiming people who are already immune to a pathogen don’t need a vaccine is spot on. How a person got that immunity is the issue.

          You hypothesis that: “Yet all the information you linked to is PURE 100% hypothesis being generated and created by people who claim their credentials make them “experts” even though they cannot cure or prevent any disease or save any lives outside of trauma.”

          I have Googled you and the evidence available is that you are a person who claims to be an occasional Dr, but have no training in science or medicine. You also claim to be the only person on the planet who knows how to ‘program’ a person’s immune system to cure disease. You deny viri exist, and that fungi are the real culprit. Some days you are a philanthropist and others you charge $5000 for a cure to an unspecified complaint. You claim 100% success, but offer no evidence.

          After about five minutes of skimming I propose the following hypothesis: The medical profession is evidence based, and the evidence involves statistically significant numbers derived from blinded studies using the scientific method, which is a process, not a thing, and when done correctly it is self correcting for greed, bias, avarice, hubris, gluttony and sloth. No one study is definitive, and the only certainty is uncertainty: The next study could erase the progress of all previous studies on a specific topic if the evidence is compelling.

          Null hypothesis: All the work of all the people past and present – except for trauma- is null and void based on the claims of one (occasionally) Dr. David Flowers. Evidence: None. Research: None. Anecdotal evidence: None. greed, bias, avarice, hubris: Apparent.

          My team of sled dogs and I will confer to determine if the null disproves the hypothesis. Devil just deposited his vote . . .

          • Dear winterhawk how did you get to be such an expert on “evidence”. Can we all assume you are also an expert on “proof”?

            Let’s clear something up RIGHT NOW, unless you are curing and preventing disease you HAVE NO PROOF OR EVIDENCE of anything. You can google till you are blue in the face or 60 years old because 60 may be as old as your generation lives too but you will find NO evidence or proof on the internet. NONE.

            Unless you witness in person a cure or prevention, the latter being much harder to witness, you have no proof or evidence.

            Your theory of what I should offer as evidence is as absurd as what you currently BELIEVE is evidence simply because you choose to BELIEVE it to be evidence.

            The world hates me and you can take any attack on my character and believe it is evidence if you choose to remain that simple minded and be a mindless consumer yourself. I haven’t charged $5000 as of yet but at least we know you read my Facebook page but I will be charging $5000 before too long because in your modest short life so far you have paid, your parents have paid or your insurance company has paid well over $5000 in medical bills that did not bring you a cure or prevention for anything so if I choose to charge $5000 to bring someone a cure with total immunity to all disease we all know that is VERY reasonable and YOU and I both know the only useful evidence for such a claim is when a person becomes immune to all disease and cured of the disease they were originally concerned with.

            I can call myself a doctor if I so choose to. Back when I started to realize just how easy it is to cure diseases believed to be incurable I did make a post to a specific person where I called myself a doctor on that person’s behalf because I could and I did it that one time but I saw how mindless consumers like yourself would react to it so I didn’t refer to myself as a doctor after that. NOW TODAY I can call myself a doctor because I am more qualified in the matter of health and healing than any doctor, and I could do so with pure immunity but I don’t because there is nothing more ignorant an uneducated than a doctor of medicine and to call myself a doctor now with the knowledge and ability I now possess would be like calling myself an ignorant peon.

            Results are the only evidence and proof that will hold up in a court of law if I am in the battle. I can destroy any so called credentialed personal in a court of law. I can destroy any of your so-called perceived evidence in a court of law but that isn’t important to me, what is important to me is the fact that I can make you immune to any and all disease as nature intended and if the world hates me for it, so be it. Let them google attack me all they want, it brings attention to my cause and those who still have a touch of wisdom buried deep inside them will respect my work, my information and my fees because I am the only person in the world that will give the human immune system credit were credit is due. I’m not trying to reach people like yourself, I’m reaching out to the people reading this that do wonder why they have diseases that their immune system should prevent and or cure. I just used you to expose the flaw in the mindless consumers presumed notion of evidence. You have no evidence and every time a person is cured of a disease they and only they have evidence, something today’s medical industry cannot provide.
