Studies prove that vaccines can cause autism










Nearly two dozen medical studies prove that vaccines can cause autism

(NaturalNews) Mainstream doctors and media pundits are notorious for claiming  that the vaccine-autism debate is over and that no legitimate scientific  evidence exists to suggest even a possible link between vaccinations and autism  spectrum disorders (ASD): case closed. But a thoroughly-researched report  recently published by Arjun Walia over at Activist Post reveals that  there are at least 22 published scientific studies that show a link  between vaccines and autism and that there are many more out there with  similar findings.
Much of the original controversy stems from Dr. Andrew  Wakefield’s study back in the late 1990s, which exposed gastrointestinal  inflammation as an obvious side effect of vaccination with the combination  measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. Dr. Wakefield obviously struck a major  nerve with his research, which was quickly torn apart by the establishment and  maliciously paraded around as being fraudulent, even though his groundbreaking  findings have repeatedly been validated and replicated by many other  studies.
A 2002 study published in the Journal of Biomedical  Sciences, for instance, observed a causal effect between the MMR vaccine and  autism, particularly with regards to the measles portion of the vaccine. The  researchers from Utah State University concluded that MMR is capable of inducing  an abnormal measles infection in some children, which in turn can lead to  neurological problems that fall under the umbrella of ASD.
Another study  published in the journal Entropy in 2012 observed a strong correlation  between the MMR vaccine and autism, except in this case aluminum was the  culprit. According to an abstract of this study, vaccines that contain aluminum are particularly toxic to children, who end up later being  diagnosed with ASD, as they have insufficient serum levels of both sulfate and  glutathione. The aluminum found in some vaccines, in other words, appears to be  a primary aggravator of ASD symptoms.
“Regardless of the MMR vaccine and  autism debate, there are  still a number of studies that link vaccines to a possible autism connection,”  writes Walia. “[M]ultiple courts worldwide have ruled in favor of vaccines  causing autism, brain damage and other complications that include the MMR vaccine,” he adds, noting  that many other side effects besides autism have been observed in relation to  vaccines.

Heavy metals, adjuvants, preservatives and other vaccine additives all  linked to causing autism

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Walia’s  extensive research on the subject is the fact that there appear to be multiple  ingredients in vaccines responsible for triggering autism. Besides toxic metals  like aluminum and mercury, vaccines also contain adjuvant materials,  preservatives and other additives that have all been identified as culprits in  the studies listed in his  article. Realistically, each of these additives is most likely toxic both in  isolation and in combination with the other additives, eliciting compounded  toxicity depending on the mixture.
“Oxidative stress, brain inflammation  and microgliosis have been much documented in association with toxic exposures  including various heavy metals,” admits one study out of Massachusetts General  Hospital, which verified that autistic individuals possess a unique type of  neuroinflammation in their brain tissue that points to vaccine  damage.
Several of the studies listed in Walia’s report also pin  thimerosal, a toxic mercury derivative that is still being added to multidose  vials of flu vaccine, as a trigger in causing the types of brain damage linked  to autism. One particular study out of the University of Texas Health Science  Center found that for every 1,000 pounds of mercury released into the  environment, there is a consequential 61 percent increase in autism  rates.
With thimerosal-containing flu shots now being administered to  children as young as six months old, it is highly plausible that ASD-associated  brain damage is still occurring as a result of mercury being injected directly  into muscle tissue.
