Vaccines and Autism
You may have noticed I have not mentioned autism anywhere until now on this site. There is so much nonsense out there on both sides of this issue that I only wanted to deal with it in one place. So here we go, Vaccines and autism, Don't freak out on me.
Do vaccines contribute to autism? You decide for yourself, read "everything" here first before you decide.
HERE IS SOMETHING AMAZING
-I challenge you to show me a single study that says "Vaccines do not cause autism".
You are thinking that should be easy, right, the media keeps saying "the science has proven over and over that vaccines do not cause autism, well show me this science, FIND ME one of these studies. If you fine one please email it to me.
You won't find any other than a handful that say the MMR does not cause autism. Keep reading.
Remember this news story that came in last year and was in every media outlet. Example, in 2019, the headline of this article: says "A new study proves once again: Nope, vaccines do not cause autism". But then when you get into the article it says, "the mmr vaccine does not cause autism".
Or this article from 2015, says "vaccines do not cause autism" and quotes new study. But read the last sentence of article, says the study was on MMR and mmr not cause autism.
All those studies say, "the mmr vaccine does not cause autism", they never say vaccines do not cause autism, they never say the DTaP vaccine does not cause autism. They ignore the other 14 vaccines, and the ones with aluminum in them.
And there are only about 15 studies saying the MMR does not cause autism, several of them very iffy studies.(see CDC link below) And most of them done by Industry, like the one above.
That's your science people, that's all they have. This shows how the media is like sheep.
-The media seems fixated with autism when we talk about vaccines. It is the only thing they will talk about, and they ignore all the other problems vaccines cause like auto-immune diseases, neurological, encephalopathy and encephalitis or brain damage, developmental disorders, allergies, asthma, and long term problems, caused by vaccines.
The standard format for media is Quote: "a fake study by Dr. Wakefield connecting vaccines to autism was published back in 1998 which has since been discredited, which started the anti-vaccine movement, and started the vaccines and autism debate, causing many to refuse vaccines."
How many times have you read the above or a variation of it. (Learn about Wakefield in Appendix B)
The above comment did 'not' start the anti-vaccine movement, it was already long started, and as the next link shows, the vaccine-autism connection was started long before 1998 and had nothing to do with Wakefield.
This study shows people were worried about vaccines and autism even back in 1976.
Says "Vaccination is recognized to have a starter function for the onset of autism".
This was 1976!! Wakefield is 1998. Again showing how stupid the media is.
-There is more than one cause of autism, many things contribute to it, genetics have a roll, the environment, This study in BMJ says pesticides contribute to autism.
Autism is actually a behaviour, Vaccines can cause encephalitis, encephalopathy, and the like, and then this causes autism and a host of other developmental disorders.
LETS SEE WHAT THE CDC SAYS ABOUT AUTISM:
-The CDC says vaccines don't cause autism, and mentions all the studies. See here. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/autism.html Actually read the links to the studies they give. When you look at them all, including the Taylor study, you see they ONLY talk about the mmr vaccine or thimerosal. They mention no studies looking at the other 15 vaccines, or aluminum in vaccines, or taking 5 of them at once like a 2 month old kids get.
SO THE CDC CANNOT SAY VACCINES DONT CAUSE AUTISM, THEY CAN ONLY SAY THE MMR VACCINE DOES NOT CUASE AUTISM, or thimerosal vaccines do not cause autism, we have not used thimerosal in 18 years.
-Here is the 2014 Taylor study often quoted. This is the full study, as just reading the abstract gives you the idea they looked at all vaccines.
Also this is not a study, it is just a meta analysis, looking at other studies. Notice how it was done. They looked at 10 studies(see under Results) and then you see 9 of those studies are to do with the MMR vaccine and/or thimerosal. One of the 10 studies(Andrew study) looked at the DTP, but only at the thimerosal.
Also note that when Luke Taylor did this study he was not even a doctor, was working on his masters. So we still have no studies looking at the other 15 vaccines, or aluminum.
(This is a review of Taylor study by a anti-vax site, believe it or not.)
Note the CDC has re-edited their page since I wrote this bit. But nothing has really changed. The studies are still about thimerosal or mmr and there is one newer one done by Frank DeStefano, the same author who was William Thompsons partner who later admitted they faked data and this spawned the documentary "Vaxxed", also this study is only looking at antigens not aluminum etc, Dr Paul Offits favourite trick, notice he is mentioned at bottom, it's hilarious.
IS THAT IT?? WHERE ARE THE STUDIES SHOWING VACCINES DONT CAUSE AUTISM?? There are none! All they can say is the MMR vaccine does not cause autism. Not vaccines dont cause autism.
THERE IS MORE!! The above CDC link in the 1st paragraph references the "IOM" report. The CDC deliberately mis-interprets this IOM report, saying vaccines dont cause autism, read the report linked here, it does not say that, and they dont TELL you what the IOM report actually says, but I do, see below. (See pages 545-546) Download report here. Or get report directly here.
Don't listen to me, read it yourself!!
This is what the 2012 IOM report says about the DTaP vaccine. "Conclusion 10.1: The evidence is inadequate to accept or reject a causal relationship between diphtheria toxoid–, tetanus toxoid–, or acellular pertussis–containing vaccine(DTaP) and AUTISM".
Notice how short this section is, that's because there are no studies. SO THEY DO NOT KNOW IF VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM. This is 2019, why are there no studies? Is it because they already know the answer? Because they know vaccines do cause autism, and they have painted themselves into a corner, they cant admit they were wrong. Think of the lawsuits.
Anybody who tries to study it, is "Wakefielded"(see Home page of this site).
YOU can see from everything written above, when the CDC says "vaccines dont cause autism", they are ignoring their own data. All they can say is the mmr does not cause autism.
-And so far we have only looked at 1 of the vaccines.
The IOM report also says the same for the following diseases:
Encephalitis and Encephalopathy, Seizures, Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Transverse myelitis, Multiple sclerosis (MS) in adults, GBS, Bells palsy, Fibromyalgia, and SIDS. "The evidence is inadequate to accept or reject a causal relationship between the above diseases and DTaP vaccine." (pages 525 to 600)
There are many studies shows "Vaccines may cause autism". Just goto the links I present in last section here to find some. We have been duped on this topic for years.
-Read Appendix A on Aluminum and vaccines, has autism data as well. See "Vaccine papers.org" link.
-https://www.cbsnews.com/news/vaccines-autism-and-brain-damage-whats-in-a-name/ This shows that you will get compensated by government as long as you call your kids developmental problems or brain damage - encephalopathy, if you call it autism your are screwed.
Read 3rd paragraph from bottom of this article, they are saying encephalopathy includes autism. We know vaccines can cause encephalopathy, it is a table injury in the VICP program. Look up the definition of encephalopathy and it sure sounds like autism is a subset of this, as it covers a broad spectrum of mental diseases. Read last 3 paragraphs, does the government make sense?
-https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5481888/ encephalopathy and ASD or Autism spectrum disorder, are basically the same thing according to this? There is still much they don't know. This3490 is about autism and auto-immunity, related, and says autism is a neuro-developmental disability.
-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XUM2gvfbW8 New 2018. See this TV News show "Full Measure" with 4 time Emmy award winning, Sharyl Attkisson on vaccines and autism. Government expert came forward and signed an affidavit saying that vaccines can sometimes cause autism. This is the sworn affidavit of Dr. Zimmerman.
This story also talks about how pharma has shut down all debate on vaccine safety in the government.
CDC SAYS AUTISM RATES NOW AT 1 IN 59!!
AND BETTER DIAGNOSING IS NOT THE ONLY REASON!
-Below I show better diagnosing is not the only reason there is more and more autism.
READ THESE NEXT 3 AMAZING LINKS
-https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/data.html This shows the new rates of autism in the US, also shows past rates. It has jumped from 1 in 68 in 2012 to 1 in 59 in 2014.(in 2002 it was 1 in 150). The standard response each year, is "it must be better reporting".
It can’t be just better diagnosing(they say that every 2 years, each time the new rates come out), because teachers are actually seeing more handicapped kids in their class rooms. And, see next link which is an interview with one of the doctors who did this study.
Can click link in first paragraph "read article" at above link for CDC study, or see here. And note that Dr Zahorodny is one of the authors. His interview below.
-https://safeminds.org/news/autism-prevalence-examining-the-myths-and-truths/ Interview with Dr. Walter Zahorodny who was part of above CDC study on autism increasing. See next link as well same doctor. I don't know who "safeminds" is but it does not matter, what matters is what Dr Zahorondy says.
Watch video in this link of interview. Minute 6:10 says "better diagnosing or more awareness is not the reason for the increase in autism rates, they have been doing study exactly the same for 14 years." Also says we are probably under estimating the amount of autism out there. He says media keeps saying autism increase could be because of better awareness etc, doctor says that is not true.
At min 6:10 says for New Jersey where they do better monitoring, rates of autism is 1 in 22 for boys. Minute 10:00 Doctor says rates of severe autism are also increasing steadily.
At min 12:00 says is disappointed that the media is not reporting the findings properly. At min 14:30 says "teachers and clinicians are also seeing the increase in autism first hand", they don't need to see studies.
Min 17: Doctor says CDC and media are not talking about or dealing with the problem.
(Note: I verified they are talking to the real Dr Zahorodny, you can find his picture on internet)https://www.linkedin.com/in/walter-zahorodny-b25064aa-https://abcnews.go.com/Health/children-diagnosed-autism-spectrum-disorder-recent-years/story?id=54762329 Autism rates increasing. Bottom of this article, the doctors who did study say better diagnosing is not the only reason autism is increasing. This also says Dr Zahorodny is the lead researcher for New Jersey state.
They say they don’t know what causes autism, environmental factors is one guess.(See CTV news study below) What environmental factors does your tiny infant come in contact between ages 0 and 2 years? The child is mostly drinking breast milk. He is mostly at home, not working in some job exposed to toxins like welding or factory work. The largest source of toxins he see’s is a barrage of vaccines in infancy. Doses of known neuro-toxins, aluminum, glycerol, neomycin and many others, there is not a single good thing it a vaccine.
Are they really looking for the cause of autism? Do you know of any studies being done? They will look at anything but the elephant in the room-vaccines.
Aluminum in breast milk is ingested, not injected, thus 99% excreted from the body, for those that like to throw in that silly argument.
The CDC has painted itself into a corner, it cannot now come out and say it was wrong. the world would go nuts, it would endanger the "vaccination program", and imagine the lawsuties.
We now know that aluminum in vaccines is dangerous, but the CDC does not know what to do about it, again they are cornered. So they just lie.
I don't think there is any one cause of autism, some are born with it. There is probably many contributing causes. Maybe sometimes a dose of several vaccines at 2 months old is the final straw to tip the infant who already has other problems, over the edge into autism??
-Also read the sections on Aluminum and vaccines and autism in Appendix A.
-https://www.autismspeaks.org/what-autism First paragraph says "We now know that there is not one autism but many types, caused by different combinations of genetic and environmental influences.
-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autism More here on what is autism.
-This article from CTV news quotes a new study that says "Autism may be linked to mother's chemical exposure". Aren't there chemicals in vaccines? This also says 1 in 66 are diagnosed with autism in Canada.
Below is 5 YouTube videos with top pro-vax doctors saying "We still don't know if vaccines cause autism and or they do cause autism".
1.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2cHZa8t98w This is the infamous Dr. Paul Offit saying "You can't really say the mmr vaccine does not cause autism", then he goes on to say that "when you are in front of the media you better say that the mmr does not cause autism, as we don't want that door left open".
In other words he does not want us to know that they still do not know if it is true or not. Below is two more links showing Dr.Offit in action.
-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRAJdyPNWnA Dr. Paul Offit swears at vaxxed people when asked for a interview.
-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiK7IRKN9Jg This 30 second clip is the infamous Dr. Paul Offit saying “Vaccines are a violent act against child, we give them 5 shots at one time” and also says “vaccines are not understood all that well by physicians and we do a poor job of training them on what they are and how they work.
-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFy5cjHMEbA Oct 25/18 Highwire episode. Debates paul offit. Offit says(min 08:20) there is 17 studies down to prove mmr vaccines don’t cause autism.(I thought they said there was 1000's.) 17 and what about the other vaccines and also combining them together, nothing.
2.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd3xdAp9_Zk At minute 1:10 we have a FDA doctor, Karen Midthun, saying to congressmen at a hearing, that "they do not know if vaccines cause autism or not". Note, that she also confirms that the IOM study on weather vaccines cause autism said "there is not enough evidence to confirm or deny the connection". The IOM 2011 report says the DTaP vaccine may or may not cause autism, and for the mmr says it does not, where as the 2004 report says the mmr may or may not cause autism.
3.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PS7tqNYW9c This is Doctor Julie Gerberding head of the CDC saying "kids with mitochondria disorders can get autism like symptoms from vaccine". What are "autism like symptoms"? Isn't that autism? Julie moved on to become head of Merck's vaccine division.
4.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZFPpHBNp2M This video is 4 time Emmy award winner Sharly Atkinson interview of Doctor Bernadine Healy, former director of National Institute of Health, and former CEO of Amercian Red Cross. She says the science is 'not' settled regarding vaccines and autism.
5.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjLuTvS-nzg This is Dr Stanley Plotkin himself in 2019, reading the IOM report that says the evidence is not in yet on whether vaccines cause autism. Note that they are referring to the DTaP, not the mmr. Maybe that’s why the CDC’s 17 studies are only on the mmr?(Plotkin has made more vaccines than anyone)
People who say there is tons of studies saying vaccines are safe, don't understand that the IOM looked at all these studies and determined that there is not enough evidence to accept or reject a link between autism and DTaP vaccine.
Another CDC official Admits vaccines could cause autism. 2014.
Some studies that definitively say "vaccines don't cause autism", are all on mmr have problems. The study below is the most recent to have made big headlines in the media. It is full of problems and the media completely ignored them. See here.
This new JAMA study says no link between MMR and Autism. Again, study just looked at MMR vaccine!!! No one looks at the other vaccines, especially the ones with aluminum. Why?
This is a problem study.http://jama.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=2275444&resultClick=24 Goto bottom of this study, to "Article information." Then see"Corresponding Author" Says they work for Lewin group. Also see "conflicts of interest" lower down. Another works for Optum, see below.
-http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/2009_09/019900.php This says Washington post writes that the Lewin group that did another study, was accused of "manipulating data" by the New York attorney General and the AMA. Lewin group and Optum are both owned by United Health Group,the largest private healthcare insurance company in the US. Bias there?? Why would they even do this study??
-http://vtdigger.org/2014/08/15/optum-right-choice-despite-past-legal-problems-miller-says/ Optum company rebranded recently from Ingenix after paying out for a massive fraud case.
Another important point the media completely ignored is that this study 'only looked at the MMR vaccine' to see if vaccines cause autism, one of the few vaccines without aluminum.
https://www.icandecide.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/ICAN-AluminumAdjuvant-Autism-2.pdf Here is a good overall summary of Aluminum and autism, using many of the new studies now out, and showing how the CDC has not done proper research. ICAN is a anti-vax site, but I believe this is good information, read it.

Good article on vaccines and autism from CBS news, and some CDC links on autism at bottom to see both sides of story.
--https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3697751/ Certain children may be more susceptible to vaccines and autism than others. children with mild mitochondrial defect may be more susceptible to toxins like mercury.
BELOW IS A FEW STUDIES THAT SHOW VACCINES MAY CAUSE AUTISM.
http://www.hisunim.org.il/images/documents/scientific_literature/Gallagher_Goodman_HepB_2010.pdf This study found boy vaccinated at birth with Hep B had a 3 fold risk of autism compared to boys not vaccinated as neonates. Nonwhite boys bore greater risk.
This is a list of studies someone put together that suggest links between vaccines and autism. This list seems to include some studies with no real link, but there is many good ones here. I Have not looked at them all.
-Note, next four links, some consider anti-vax sites, I think their data is good, if you see a fact that is wrong please tell me.
-http://thinkingmomsrevolution.com/acetaminophen-use-early-childhood-whats-evidence/ Acetaminophen and autism. It should not be taken with vaccines.
-https://digitalcommons.pace.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1681&context=pelr This by Mary Holland lawyer and others. On the VICP program problems and autism, and other issues. This as well by Mary Holland and others. See page 20 and 33. shows those compensated for encephalitis etc by VICP, many actually had autism, when the parents are phoned later and interviewed.
To get VICP compensation, the lawyers say the kid has encephalopathy from the vaccine rather than autism, the courts refuse to look at autism.

--https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/research.html See under heading "Evaluating CDC's tracking System" It says they are most likely not over-estimating the prevalence of ASD. then goes on to say that they are actually under estimating.
-This article from Salon shows how stupid the media can be, read this hilarious article. First it says Wakefield is the start of the vaccine autism connection, as I showed at top this is not true, then point 4 in article goes on about vaccines dont cause autism while telling us about all the studies that only say MMR does not cause autism. This article goes with all the cliche's repeated over and over, sticking to the Industry script.
-Another incredible lie from Mainstream media "Business Insider" magazine. This says "The "Vaxxed" documentary aims to draw a link between vaccines and autism, but it relies on research from a discredited British doctor named Andrew Wakefield". That is completely untrue, the whole video is actually about the CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson and how they faked a vaccine autism study. the magazine article never once mentions that.
-This new study says autism may be an auto-immune disease.(first paragraph)
