Do Vaccines Cause Autism? An Honest Look At BOTH Sides Of This Controversial Issue

Published

on

Do vaccines cause autism? Over the past few decades, a considerable amount of research has emerged, published in various peer-reviewed journals, declaring the need to look into this further. Some have said definitively that there is a considerable risk for autism, or autism-like features and other neurodegenerative diseases, while others claim, just as definitively that vaccines do not cause autism whatsoever.

One thing is for certain — the masses are unaware of the research showing a link between vaccines and autism, and in fact, many still do not believe that this type of research even exists. We’ve seen a considerable amount of pro-vaccine marketing, and the media heavily stigmatizes anyone who questions their safety.

The “Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism” Side

Those who believe that vaccines don’t cause autism will commonly point to the science, usually citing  government health authorities, like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which state that “studies have shown that there is no link between vaccines and developing ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)” and that adverse reactions are rare.

Most of the studies debunking the vaccine-autism link come from the CDC itself. For example, a study they conducted in 2013 examined the substances and microbes in vaccines that trigger the immune system to react with antibodies that fight disease (antigens). They looked at these antigens in two-year-olds and concluded that “the total amount of antigen from vaccines received was the same between children with ASD and those that did not have ASD. “

When it comes to vaccine ingredients, like mercury, the CDC commonly cites a study from 2004, stating that “the evidence favours rejection of a causal relationship between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism.” Several conflicts of interest were noted in this study regarding the authors, but were not disclosed.

And more evidence is emerging. One of the lead authors of these studies, a senior scientist at the CDC who has published multiple studies heavily cited by the CDC debunking a link between mercury, the MRR vaccine, and autism (Thompson, et al. 2007, Price, et al. 2010Destefano, et al. 2004), Dr. William Thompson, came out publicly stating that it was “the lowest point” in his career when he “went along with [the] paper” that debunked this link. He went on to say that he and the other authors “didn’t report significant findings” and that he is “completely ashamed” of what he did.

Thompson was involved in studies between 2003 and 2012, when the CDC funded or conducted approximately 10 studies that found “no link between thimerosal-containing vaccines and ASD, as well as no link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MR) vaccine and ASD in children.”

What’s more, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently issued a challenge to journalists and scientists, offering a $100,000 dollar reward to anybody who can provide a study showing that it is safe to inject mercury into babies, while himself offering approximately 100 studies showing that it’s not. Most people don’t know that vaccine adjuvants have simply been assumed safe, without any toxicology studies to prove it. This is precisely why Kennedy and his team are taking this initiative.

Lastly, another way the “vaccination does not cause ASD” argument is defended is by discrediting research that demonstrates a link. These types of papers come under severe scrutiny, and some have been retracted and even ridiculed despite being backed by many researchers. One of the most recent cases involved a paper titled “Behavioural abnormalities in young female mice following administration of aluminum adjuvants and the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil” that found strong evidence for neuroinflammation and autoimmune reactions.

The ironic part is that research showing a link is commonly discredited, even though those from within the field have been discrediting most ‘mainstream’ science. The editors in chiefs of some of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, like Dr. Richard Horton, Dr. Arnold Seymour Relman, and Dr. Marcia Angell, have all emphasized how a very large percentage of research is corrupted by political and industry interests.

If vaccines and autism aren’t connected, ask yourself, why are so many professionals, scientists, and doctors convinced otherwise? Let’s take a look.

The “Vaccines Cause Autism” Side

As mentioned earlier, there are a number of studies implicating vaccines and autism, and more seem to surface every single year. According to Dr. Lucija Tomlijenovic, PhD., a post-doctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia where she works in neurosciences and the Department of Medicine:

I have a document from 2002 from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)… discussing the assessment of vaccine ingredients… and testing specifically in animal models.

Back then, the FDA stated that the routine toxicity studies in animals with vaccine ingredients have not been conducted because it was assumed that these ingredients are safe. When I read that I was kind of pulling my hairs out [thinking] ‘So, this is your indisputable evidence of safety?’ 

Consider the following meta-analysis that was published in the journal Bio Med Research International:

The studies on which the [pro-mercury vaccine] CDC relies on and over which it exerted some level of control report that there is no increased risk of autism from exposure to organic Hg in vaccines, and some of these studies even reported that exposure to Thimerosal appeared to decrease the risk of autism.

These six studies are in sharp contrast to research conducted by independent researchers over the past 75+ years that have consistently found Thimerosal to be harmful. As mentioned in the Introduction section, many studies conducted by independent investigators have found Thimerosal to be associated with neurodevelopmental disorders.

Considering that there are many studies conducted by independent researchers which show a relationship between Thimerosal and neurodevelopmental disorders, the results of the six studies examined in this review, particularly those showing the protective effects of Thimerosal, should bring into question the validity of the methodology used in the studies.”

We’re also seeing the same thing right now with aluminum, another substance that’s been viewed as non-toxic by the FDA and by vaccine manufacturers. This determination means no appropriate studies have been undertaken to prove its safety.

Yet a growing number of studies have linked the use of aluminum adjuvants to serious autoimmune outcomes in humans. (source)(source)(source)(source) The use of this adjuvant has been connected to all kinds of diseases, from autism to brain disease to Alzheimer’s and much more.

“Experimental research . . . clearly shows that aluminum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans.”

–  Dr. Lucija Tomlijenovic (source)

There are numerous studies that have examined aluminum’s potential to induce toxic effects, and this is clearly established in medical literature, and has been for a long time. (source)

Perhaps one of the biggest pieces of evidence to emerge within the past few years, as mentioned earlier, comes from senior CDC scientist and whistleblower Dr. William Thompson (author of multiple CDC studies debunking a vaccine-autism link). Not only did he admit to falsifying data on the order of his superiors at the CDC, he also transferred concealed data to his colleague, Dr. Brian Hooker.

Hooker is one of the authors of the mercury meta-analysis listed above, and he ia also a long-time CDC scientists who took that data shortly after the Thompson incident and published a report in 2014 in the peer-reviewed journal Translational NeurodegenerationIt found a 340% increased risk of autism in African American boys receiving the Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine on time. The study was  retracted during the same time of this controversy.

Apart from the science aspect, the “vaccines cause autism’ camp also cites scientific fraud, but has actual documents to prove it.  For example, a leaked report from GlaxoSmithKline “details adverse effects associated with autism, including encephalitis, developmental delays, altered states of consciousness, speech delays and other adverse reactions.”

There are also documents revealing that vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and health authorities have known about multiple dangers associated with vaccines but chose to withhold them from the public. They show that health authorities and vaccine manufacturers made “continuous efforts to withhold critical data on severe adverse reactions and contraindications to vaccinations to both parents and health practitioners in order to reach overall vaccination rates, which they deemed were necessary for ‘herd immunity.’ ” (source)

There is a powerful and brand new documentary series you can watch for free  titled The Truth About Vaccines, which brings together an impressive line up of experts who will explore this subject. You can learn more about here.

The details above are just the tip of the iceberg. Whether autism is connected to vaccination or not is an issue that clearly requires closer scrutiny and in-depth analysis. It’s time to make all of the evidence available to the public and have a serious discussion between experts on both sides of the coin.

Elon Musk And Over 2400 AI Scientists Sign Pledge Against Killer Robots

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    More than 2,400 AI scientists and researchers have signed a pledge which intends to deter military firms and nations from building lethal autonomous weapon systems (LAWS).

  • Reflect On:

    Are we as individuals, working together on shared concerns for all humans on the planet, starting to see the power we have to effect positive change?

It is not an uncommon story in the history of science and technology: the most brilliant and innovative minds of their time discover, create, and invent technologies that can have hugely positive benefits for mankind as a whole. Inevitably, the largest and wealthiest ‘consumer’ of such technologies is the Military-Industrial Complex, and the main ways these technologies are produced in our world are as tools of control, warfare, and human suffering.

In earlier times scientists and inventors didn’t have much say in how their work was used, and could often be persuaded that their use in military applications was actually for the benefit of humankind. Today, those naive days are gone, and the landscape is different. Some of the most prominent minds that are creating advanced technologies are starting to speak out more and more about how their work is being used in the world.

More Than 2400 Signatories

Elon Musk of SpaceX and Demis Hassabis at Google DeepMind are among more than 2,400 signatories to the pledge which intends to deter military firms and nations from building lethal autonomous weapon systems, also known as LAWS. The signatories are scientists who specialize in artificial intelligence, (AI) and have declared that they will not participate in the development or manufacture of robots that can identify and attack people without human oversight. The pledge was created by the Future of Life Institute:

LETHAL AUTONOMOUS WEAPONS PLEDGE

Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to play an increasing role in military systems. There is an urgent opportunity and necessity for citizens, policymakers, and leaders to distinguish between acceptable and unacceptable uses of AI.

In this light, we the undersigned agree that the decision to take a human life should never be delegated to a machine. There is a moral component to this position, that we should not allow machines to make life-taking decisions for which others – or nobody – will be culpable. There is also a powerful pragmatic argument: lethal autonomous weapons, selecting and engaging targets without human intervention, would be dangerously destabilizing for every country and individual. Thousands of AI researchers agree that by removing the risk, attributability, and difficulty of taking human lives, lethal autonomous weapons could become powerful instruments of violence and oppression, especially when linked to surveillance and data systems. Moreover, lethal autonomous weapons have characteristics quite different from nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and the unilateral actions of a single group could too easily spark an arms race that the international community lacks the technical tools and global governance systems to manage. Stigmatizing and preventing such an arms race should be a high priority for national and global security.

We, the undersigned, call upon governments and government leaders to create a future with strong international norms, regulations and laws against lethal autonomous weapons. These currently being absent, we opt to hold ourselves to a high standard: we will neither participate in nor support the development, manufacture, trade, or use of lethal autonomous weapons. We ask that technology companies and organizations, as well as leaders, policymakers, and other individuals, join us in this pledge.

The Power Of Public Shaming

The pledge hopes to amount to more than just words. In calling on countries to legislate laws, technology companies to not accept contracts, and individuals to voice their support against lethal autonomous weapons, they hope to sway public opinion overwhelmingly against LAWS, and in doing so shame any person or group who would go ahead with its development. There is some precedent for this approach working, according to Yoshua Bengio, an AI pioneer at the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms:

This approach actually worked for land mines, thanks to international treaties and public shaming, even though major countries like the US did not sign the treaty banning landmines. American companies have stopped building landmines.

The timing of this pledge is crucial. The military is one of the largest funders and adopters of AI technology. With advanced computer systems, robots can fly missions over hostile terrain, navigate on the ground, and patrol under seas. More sophisticated weapon systems are in the pipeline. Toby Walsh, a professor of AI at the University of New South Wales in Sydney who signed the pledge, had this to say about it:

We need to make it the international norm that autonomous weapons are not acceptable. A human must always be in the loop.

We cannot stop a determined person from building autonomous weapons, just as we cannot stop a determined person from building a chemical weapon. But if we don’t want rogue states or terrorists to have easy access to autonomous weapons, we must ensure they are not sold openly by arms companies.

Collective Consciousness Rising

This pledge is but one example of how people are implicating themselves in the future of the planet. No longer are we waiting on the sidelines and leaving decisions up to corporations, the military, or our political leaders. When we identify ourselves not as a race, culture or nation but as a planet, where all of humankind is considered part of the family, then we get to have greater access to the power of our collective consciousness. Once we harness that power, no initiative that is for the benefit of humanity is beyond our abilities.

The Flying Humanoid Phenomena Of Mexico

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There have been multiple reports over the years of bizarre activity in the skies of Mexico. People have claimed to be seeing flying humanoids in the sky. Though not fully verified as to what onlookers have seen, it is clear what they believe.

  • Reflect On:

    Experiences & stories such as this bring us to the question most of us have heard before, 'Are we alone?' What is the true nature of our reality? More importantly, what could this mean for us as a collective, as humanity?

Throughout time in mainstream media and the entertainment industry we have been programmed to see beings outside of human as dangerous, and for the most part there is a good chunk of fear-based propaganda to remind us of the potential danger if we were to encounter a visit.

Though new films and shows have been coming forth with a different perspective & narrative and new space forces are being declared, it is interesting to question the why. Stories of otherworldly visitors have been spread for centuries, and it is time we closely examine them with an open mind.

In this specific instance, an officer driving his patrol car in Mexico has seen a dark shape that he verified was, in fact, a “flying humanoid entity” which he described looked like a floating old woman, dressed in all black with dark skin and eyes that were “just black sockets, without eyelids.”

This startling apparition then apparently flew over to hover right in front of the vehicle and the stunned occupant within. He could see it better at this time, and noted that it was a hideous old woman that “resembled a witch.” Apparently annoyed by the car’s high beams, the witch then reportedly covered her face with some sort of cloak and then flew right into the vehicle’s windshield, causing the dumbfounded officer to go speeding back in reverse. He would explain the terrifying events like this:

As soon as I realized it was a kind of woman being, or a witch, very strange standing there trying to cover her face, she threw herself against my car very fast, falling on the car and hitting the windshield. She was flying very fast and it took only a second to hit the windshield glass. I was so shocked by this action that I put the car in reverse and pushed the accelerator trying to get away while requesting backup assistance by radio.

It was a woman with big black eyes, everything was black, no eyelids. Her skin was dark brown and her expression was horrible. She was furiously trying to get me with her claws while I was running away in reverse calling desperately for backup assistance to any units around.

There Is More Than One Type Of Intelligence

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The current model of schooling puts emphasis on one particular type of education, which only covers a small percentage of the population of children. It also educates children in batches, assuming they are all ready for the same thing.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it time to reevaluate this method of schooling to be more inclusive to children with all types of other intellect and creative ability? Is our education system even bringing out the full potential in our children?

What was your experience in school like? Did you hate it or love it? Were you an all ‘A’ student and found it to be a breeze or did you struggle with understanding some of the subjects you were being taught?

The fact of the matter is, our modern education system is not catering to students as individuals, but lumping them all into the same category and expecting them to succeed, even at things they are not particularly good at or even interested in, while those who got the highest test scores were praised and reminded of their perceived superiority and intelligence.

Because of this, many children experience anxiety around tests because they have been taught over and over again that their value is determined by a letter grade and not their creative abilities. If one child has an amazing skill to write poetry, but then fails a math exam, the latter will be the topic that is looked at and how this failure can be turned around. Often telling the child they need to pay attention more in class or study longer, even though this particular topic may not be where the child’s intelligence lies. This system is designed strictly for children to learn how to memorize and regurgitate what they have learned in the form of tests, not giving much leeway for other talents and abilities.

Our modern-day schooling system was designed to train children into becoming the perfect employee, to sit at a desk perhaps, or follow orders effectively for when they are old enough to enter the workforce. The hours, little time for play, taking instructions from a person with authority and unfortunately, leaving little room for exploring creative abilities. This system, in reality, only caters to a small percentage of people in the world, and because of this, we are effectively killing the creative potential that exists within all human beings.

The following video from Sustainable Human sums this up quite nicely.

As it says in the video, “How did we get to the point where we decided the best way to school our children is to sit them behind a desk and insist they keep still?”

Children are meant to play, to explore, to observe, to stumble, to be curious, to ask questions, to find answers, to learn from others and as they go. Sitting them in a desk seems far from natural, yet this is something that to this day we still accept as normal and see it as, ‘just the way it is.’ However, it hasn’t actually been that long that this has been our generally accepted method of schooling.

“If a kid is failing, it is not the kids fault, the fault is within the system.”

Let us not forget that there are MANY forms of intelligence and it’s time we embraced every single one. The schooling system as we know it, needs an overhaul.

Let’s get this discussion started over in the Collective Evolution Group on Facebook.

Much Love
