Shocker: Study Unwittingly Links Vaccines To Autism

Start with this:

A new study links fever in pregnant women to an increased risk of autism in their babies.

MedicalNewsToday (6/13/17): “A study of a large group of children found a link between raised risk of autism spectrum disorder and their mothers reporting fever during pregnancy. The link was strongest with fevers reported during the second trimester.”

“The study – led by the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City, NY – also found that the risk of autism increased in line with the number of fevers reported after 12 weeks of gestation – rising to 300 percent higher risk [of autism] with reports of three or more fevers.”

Next, here is a one-word item from the World Health Organization web page, Vaccine Safety Basics. The item comes under the heading of “minor vaccine reactions,” and applies to every vaccine: the reaction is FEVER.

Pregnant woman gets vaccines. Vaccines cause fevers. Fevers are linked to autistic babies.

Here is a CDC list of vaccines given to pregnant women, under various conditions: HepA, HepB, Flu, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis), meningococcal, polio, Rabies. Fever, as a typical and minor adverse effect, would be expected and ignored for ANY AND ALL of these vaccines.

Accepting the finding of the new study, cited above—routine vaccination for pregnant women is linked to an increased risk of autism in their babies.

That’s it in a nutshell.

No doubt if you pointed out the inevitable conclusion to a doctor or a researcher, they would try to worm out of it. They would say, “Well, we’re not talking about fever resulting from vaccines. We’re talking about fever coming from an infection in the pregnant woman.” Really? Why don’t you think the vaccine is producing fever? It’s causing an infection, and the immune system is reacting. Fever is an entirely expected consequence.

Note: I’m not saying the creation of fever is the only reason vaccines cause autism and various types of neurological damage. I’m saying here is a new connection.

And mainstream medicine and the mainstream press will ignore it completely.

It’s no secret that vaccines can and do harm innocent people. But just how many people have been harmed by them — and how much has the government awarded to families of vaccine victims? Between the fiscal years of 1989 and 2015, the U.S. government’s Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has awarded over $3 billion in injury compensation and legal fees to the sufferers of vaccine injury and their families.

As you might expect, some vaccines seem to be more harmful than others. For example, the vaccines with the highest number of complaints filed are DTP and Influenza vaccines. The MMR rounds out the top three with 947 complaints filed, and is followed by the Hepatitis B vaccine, with 672 complaints filed. The inoculation with the fifth highest number of complaints (and payouts) is the DTaP vaccine, with 454 complaints.

As of 2015, there were a total of 3,982 complaints filed against the DTP vaccine, with 696 instances of death. Sadly, only 1,270 of those cases were awarded compensation. As for influenza vaccines, or flu shots, a total 1788 complaints were filed and 985 cases resulted in compensation.

When looking at some of the ingredients found in the flu shot, it comes as no surprise that so many complains have been filed. There are an array of flu vaccine formulations on the market these days and many contain questionable ingredients, such as: squalene-based adjuvants (you may recall squalene as the cause of Gulf War Syndrome), formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate, and thimerosal. Thimerosal is a mercury-containing ingredient that is used both as a preservative and a processing agent in several vaccines, according to the FDA. The FDA itself admits that some vaccines contain up to 24.5 micrograms of mercury per 0.5 milliliter dose.

While world health authorities claim that there is no convincing evidence that thimerosal is harmful, they themselves cannot escape the truth. In document from the World Health Organization, they acknowledge that studies of infant macaques monkeys and rats have found that there is indeed evidence of harm caused by clinically relevant amounts of thimerosal. As the WHO summarizes, “preliminary evidence of behavioral neurotoxicity in infant macaques following a single dose of HBV containing a clinically relevant dose of thimerosal on day of birth.”

Furthermore, the same document states “Half-life of ethylmercury in blood has been shown to be similar in human and macaque infants,” which would likely indicate that the effects of the ethylmercury in thimerosal would be similar as well. Yet, this evidence is dismissed because of “limitations” that necessitate replication, according to the WHO. How is it that the studies showing thimerosal harms infant macaques are not “relevant” enough and require further replication, when they themselves state that these animals’ response to ethylmercury is similar to humans? And since when do we apply the “innocent until proven guilty” stance to things we are injecting into humans, anyways? Any inkling of harm should not be so readily discarded by agencies that purport themselves to be leading health authorities, yet here we are: the WHO acknowledges evidence of thimerosal’s dangers exists, and then writes it off.

Thimerosal, of course, is just one of many troubling ingredients that we see used in vaccines. Aluminum salts are also often used to help “stoke” the immune system into action — and it too can come with consequences. Aluminum is known to be a neurotoxic metal, and is even linked to conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Concerns about the ingredients used to manufacture vaccines continue to be waved off as “conspiracy theories” and other such drivel, but the truth is that many people have been harmed by these dangerous inoculations — and the powers that be are doing everything they can to obscure and deny these facts, and not near enough to prevent them from happening in the first place.

USA’s National Embarrassment: Mandatory Vaccinations

June 3, 2017

Saturday, June 3, 2017, is the International Vaccine Injury Awareness Day.  Millions of children and adults have been permanently damaged by mandatory vaccines, so it’s not all “peaches and cream” when it comes to those mandated toxic inoculations.

U.S. citizens are not told, nor permitted to know from the vested-interest-controlled-media, what goes on in other countries and all the damage that occurs GLOBALLY from mandated vaccines and vaccine trials often performed under dubious circumstances.  One example of such a vaccine program gone horribly wrong was the 2011 polio vaccine campaign promoted by Bill Gates and his foundation.  That vaccine campaign left 47,500 children paralyzed [1] ! Other countries have had their problems with vaccines:  Italy [6]; Nordic Countries [7]; United Kingdom [8].

However, in the African country of Nigeria, here’s what happened in 2003, which may not have been too far-fetched from the facts of what ingredients may have been in the vaccine:

In northern Nigeria in 2003, the political and religious leaders of Kano, Zamfara, and Kaduna states brought the immunization campaign to a halt by calling on parents not to allow their children to be immunized. These leaders argued that the vaccine could be contaminated with anti-fertility agents (estradiol hormone), HIV, and cancerous agent. [9], (considering what you will hear in the 1971 vaccine news report on what was in vaccines later on in this article.)

Citizens of other countries can and do sue vaccine manufacturers. 

Italian courts award vaccine-caused Autism damages [10].

Norway is paying victims of the swine flu vaccine [11].

Japan has discontinued promoting the HPV vaccines Cervarix® and Gardasil® [2-3] and there are lawsuits too.  Did you know the Obama administration pushed the HPV vaccines in the U.S.?

The Obama administration gave dozens of state and municipal health agencies tens of millions of dollars to boost the number of adolescents that get Gardasil. [12]

There are numerous other examples, but my computer censor deleted them while I was writing this article and I was not able to recoup what I had written.

However, the U.S. Congress sold out young children, in particular, to vested pharmaceutical interests, i.e., vaccine makers and pushers, and our children are paying the price for such outrageous disregard for factual vaccine science, but obviously bought into and accepted “lock-stock-and-barrel” the pseudoscience of Big Pharma while the CDC/FDA continue to promote fraudulent vaccine information, especially about vaccines not causing Autism.

The film VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe documents the FACT the CDC DESTROYED confirming scientific data the MMR vaccine caused Autism in young black boys less than three years of age!  “Grievous harm to innocent children.”

U.S. children and their families are paying the price for vaccine fraud and no one in the U.S. Congress or medical professional societies is doing anything to stop it!  WHY? If anything, federal agencies are promoting more harmful damage to U.S. children by mandating more and more vaccines, even giving newly-born infants the Hepatitis-B vaccine with 24 hours of birth!

Below is a chart The Washington Post published in September of 2014 indicating the U.S. “infant mortality rate is a national embarrassment”! According to 2010 statistics, U.S. children were 27th in infant mortality rate at 6.1—not in first place, if the U.S. is supposed to have the ‘best’ medical system in the world.

What the USA has is one of the best police-state medical systems in the world, in my opinion.  Taking children away from parents who refuse to have their children damaged by neurotoxic vaccines should be prosecuted as a crime against humanity, not make children and parents victims of pharmaceutical fraud, in my opinion.

Since the push on vaccines, various medical anomalies or conditions have risen to the forefront: Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and neurological encephalopathies—just to mention the more prominent children’s health problems appearing on medical radar since the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the mandated push on vaccines went into effect.

The Washington Post Wonkblog September 29, 2014

The police-state medical system is outrageously enforced in the U.S.

One researcher, Professor Gayle DeLong, has taken a probable unprecedented step to document “threats to and violations of academic freedom in the field of vaccine safety research.”  Notice of her research project is listed below.  I sincerely suggest everyone at CUNY and all her friends, professional and personal, keep close tabs on Professor DeLong so she doesn’t wind up floating in either the Hudson or East Rivers.  Is that a terrible thing to say?  No—I don’t think so.  How many integrative medical doctors suddenly have been found dead and “offed”? [4-5]

Have You Been Denied Academic Freedom On Vaccine Safety Research?

NOTE: We received this request from AofA contributor Professor Gayle DeLong.  Thank you.

I am writing a paper on threats to and violations of academic freedom in the field of vaccine safety research.  I need information about specific cases in any academic discipline.  You can contact me (in confidence) at gayle.delong@baruch.cuny.edu.

Finally, there’s documented proof of what’s happened to the U.S. media vaccine reporting, plus the controls Big Pharma and vested media interests have and supply support for vaccine pseudoscience, fraud and cover-ups.

In 1971—many years before the U.S. Congress gave Big Pharma and vaccine makers a “get out of jail free” card in 1986 and absolved that industry of product liability issues—the media candidly reported on the FACTS about vaccines, which was counter to the gag-orders imposed currently.  Below is a most incredible archived…

US government has already paid out $159 million in damages to vaccine injured children so far in 2017

America has been under the spell of a vaccine hysteria due to the recent measles outbreak among unvaccinated Somali-Americans in Minnesota. Once again, vaccine skepticism and anti-vaccine activists, such as the “discredited” Dr. Andrew Wakefield, have been blamed for the outbreak that affected 48 people.

Americans are constantly told that vaccines are the safest, most effective prevention measures, only causing mild side-effects in very rare occasions. If vaccines are so safe, why has the U.S. government already paid out nearly $159 million to vaccine-injured families in 2017 alone? Since 1989, a grand total of more than $3.6 billion has been awarded to individuals and their families for injuries and deaths attributed to vaccines, according to data published by the U.S. Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA). (RELATED: Click here to view the latest report on vaccine injuries and payments made by the U.S. government for vaccine damages.)

Not many Americans, however, are aware of the existence of a vaccine fund, known as the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), that pays out claims to people and families whose loved ones were injured by vaccines. This special fund was a direct result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued for injuries and deaths related to vaccines.

With no risk whatsoever for vaccine manufacturers, vaccine production has gone through the roof since the initial passing of the law and the creation of the vaccine injury court. Not entirely surprising, the U.S. government is one of the largest purchasers of these vaccines, spending more than $4 billion in taxpayer dollars each year, reported Vaccine Impact.

Has fear driven us completely insane?

In the past, some vaccine proponents have suggested parents who decide not to vaccinate their children with toxic substances are criminals and should be sued or even jailed to protect public health. However, what these people are suggesting is that we keep poisoning the brains of our children while Big Pharma is laughing all the way to the bank. And they know they can get away with it since the government has their back.

Out of fear, imprinted in our brains through our family doctor, schools, and public campaigns, many Americans keep injecting their children with autism-causing substances. These people want us to believe diseases such as the flu and the measles are relentless killers, stressing once more the importance of vaccines to protect our children’s health.

Amidst the heated debate over the question of whether parents should be forced to vaccinate their child, it is often forgotten that most of these diseases aren’t so deadly after all. Between 2004 and 2010, a total of five people died of measles, according to the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) own data.

Let’s get back to the recent Minnesota measles outbreak for just a second. There are about 5.3 million people living in Minnesota, and only 48 of them got sick. Nobody died. Think of it, is the prevention of 48 cases of people contracting a rather harmless disease in healthy people worth damaging the brains of thousands of children living there?

Even though the mainstream media and government keep spreading fear or lecturing people about how the link between brain damage, autism, and vaccines has been debunked, we should know better by now. Vaccines aren’t the world’s miracle invention. On the contrary. A massive cover-up of their health risks has been ongoing for years. As a country with one of the most aggressive vaccination schedules and skyrocketing numbers of autistic children, it is time we stop ignoring the cold, hard facts and put two and two together.

Do you know the vaccine schedule for newborns and infants in the United States? In 2017, there are currently 27 doses of 11 different vaccinations that are currently injected, or orally dispensed, to children up to fifteen months of age. All of these are approved and recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). These vaccines include Rotavirus (RV), Hepatitis B, Influenza, Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), Tetanus, diphtheria & acellular pertussis (Tdap), just to name a few. The complete list can be found here. All of these vaccines that your pediatrician willingly supplies to your new baby allow foreign and toxic substances to flow into their bloodstream and brain causing unknown damage.

In 1950, as reported by VacTruth.com, a child would only receive “7 vaccines by the age of 6.” In 2013, by the time a child was six years old that number shot up to 36. That’s an increase of 414 percent! How much did the profits of pharmaceutical companies rise in the last 67 years? We can only imagine. But the parents of children injured by this ever multiplying number of required toxic vaccinations don’t always fare so well. WakingTimes.com reports that during the first half of the current fiscal year, $142 million was awarded to 337 vaccine injured families who had the tenacity, support and appropriate documentation to claim damages in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VCIP). That seems like a paltry sum compared to the enormity of damage and pain that families have endured at the behest of pharmaceutical companies.

The VCIP was created in conjunction with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 which “granted immunity to pharmaceutical companies and prevented parents from suing vaccine makers for vaccine injuries or death.” It was signed into law by President Reagan although, as reported by the New York Times, he expressed “serious reservations” about the vaccine compensation program. Conversely, Reagan readily endorsed a provision of the bill that would allow, for the first time, “pharmaceutical companies to export drugs to other countries that have approved their use, without waiting for the United States to approve the drugs’ sale here.” It was all about increasing the “competitiveness of the American pharmaceutical industry abroad.” Indeed. But wasn’t it First Lady Nancy Reagan who, almost that very same year, coined the phrase, “Just Say No?”

Over $3.6 billion has been awarded to injured parties since the compensation program began, and it’s not always due to injuries received by children. After 2005,  the influenza shots were being made more available and marketed primarily to adults. Since that time, so many adults have filed claims that it has changed “the proportion of children to adults receiving compensation.”

While there have been many payouts from the court, the majority of families affected by vaccines do not receive the justice they deserve. There are untold vaccine injured families that couldn’t get the support, the documentation, the right representation or the funds they needed to fully prepare their case in order to bring it in front of the court for consideration. One tragic example of this is the case of little Aysia Hope Clark. Aysia was the daughter of Louisiana residents Hope Doucet and Joseph Clark. She was born on May 11, 2015, and sadly, died on July 4, 2015.

Vactruth.com tells the tragic story. Aysia Hope Clark died shortly after receiving eight vaccinations in ten days. These were recommended by her pediatrician even though she had been born premature, was jaundiced and a heart murmur was suspected. The parents were denied the specific medical records necessary to appeal the case to the VCIP. Poor Aysia and her family will never see their day in court. The chart below reveals the ingredients in each of the eight vaccines little Aysia was given. These vaccines are nowhere to be found on the autopsy report. The official cause of death was determined to be “co-sleeping.”

Has Snopes Been Snoped? Will Retraction Watch Retract?

Has Snopes Been Snoped? Will Retraction Watch Retract?
Source: GreenMedInfo.com
Celeste McGovern
May 22, 2017

Originally published on CMSRI.org.

The NEVER-retracted vaccinated vs. unvaccinated study that revealed significantly higher odds in risks of chronic illness among vaccinated children is back online. But will Retraction Watch admit it launched the attack to discredit it? Will Snopes fact-check itself? If not, why not?

The first-ever study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated American children (and a subset study) published two weeks ago in the peer-reviewed Journal of Translational Science have reappeared online after briefly disappearing while under fire from a small band of Skeptics and the staff at Retraction Watch, an organization that reports Science retraction news. Snopes, the fact-checking website, is still misreporting that the study has been retracted, even while it sits, published, in the science journal’s pages.

It is a troubling saga unfolding in the scientific publishing world, and it is worth paying attention to because it’s revealing of powerful forces in that realm that are trying to censor scientific research and to shield important data from public viewing. Not at all the methodical and logical sort of thing you would expect from modern scientific types.  It looks more like a secret 17th century Salem witch trial…interrupted.

Most readers here will be aware of Anthony Mawson et al.’s pivotal pilot study on the health of homeschooled American children. It is one of very few studies to examine the explosion of once rare disorders and conditions affecting modern children (all the millions of 21st century First World earaches, allergies, hayfever, ADD, neurodevelopmental disorders and autism, that is damaging young children’s brains in spiking numbers). And it is the only study (yes, the ONLY study to contain totally unvaccinated American subjects.) There are no other studies of American children who have never had a vaccine compared to kids with the motherload of CDC protection.

The researchers cautiously asked a logical, but unorthodox question: is it possible that all this immune –mediated disease has anything to do with the immune-mediating drugs that children are given in doses five times that of their parents?   (And yes, autism is brain damage but it is almost certainly the result of a damaged immune system). Could it have anything to do with the 50 doses of 15 immune-stimulating vaccines before age six compared to the three doses of three vaccines the last generation — that wasn’t so sick — got?

The researchers got some very troubling answers. They reported Odds Risk ratios similar to smoking and lung cancer for vaccination and immune-mediated allergic rhinitis, for example.  And a more than four-fold higher risk of vaccinated children having been diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum than unvaccinated children. We better have another study, the researchers concluded. A bigger and better study.

Round One: Suppressing the Study Results

Enter the Skeptics. When the Mawson paper was under review at Frontiers last year, a Skeptic named Leonid Schneider leapt into action.

“I pride myself to have caused the Frontiers anti-vaxx retraction with one tweet!” he tweeted. “The anti-vaxx paper was published as abstract, a reader alerted me, I tweeted, Frontiers got scared, pulled the paper.” Before it was published. It was never published. NEVER RETRACTED. Just tweeted away by Leonid and his Skeptic friends.

Most scientists are skeptical — they don’t like claims without evidence – but not all scientists are Skeptics. Skeptics are champions of objective scientific inquiry who fight against anything they see as irrational and unscientific, which is everything outside of pharmaceutical manufacturing interests. Functional Medicine is equal to Bigfoot to them.  They know the difference between Good Thinking and Bad Thinking and some theories (like evolution) they think are very good and some ideas, like God, are particularly bad. They don’t like religion, but Skeptics can be quite dogmatic themselves about some things. Like vaccines. According to them, all vaccines are safe and effective. No one is ever injured by vaccines. Every child is healthier because of vaccines. The epidemic of childhood disorders is caused by something that is not vaccines. Questioning vaccines is heresy.

Retraction Watch, which bills itself as “a window into the scientific process,” got a little more involved than window-watching and inaccurately reported that the study was retracted, based on a Tweet. It ignored that accepting science on its merits, and then rejecting it on Tweets from those who disagree, is in violation of the publishing code of conduct.  Not to mention that there is a big difference in the world of science between having a paper retracted – which implies scientific misconduct or gross scientific error – and having a paper declined because of disgruntled Tweets.

Frontiers publicly posts their retraction policy and affirms that they abide by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines and recommendations in cases of potential retraction. Frontiers also abides by two other key principles, as recommended by COPE:

  • Retractions are not about punishing authors.
  • Retraction statements should be public and linked to the original, retracted article.

There was no retraction statement ever made or posted by Frontiers; therefore Retraction Watch’s statement about Dr. Mawson’s paper being retracted is inarguably false. This proven lie was used to interfere with and misconstrue Dr. Mawson’s research, resulting in a temporary removal of his article from The Journal of Translational Science pending an inquiry. Inquiry resolved, the articles have been reinstated on the journal’s website, demonstrating sufficient proof that the articles were never retracted as claimed by Retraction Watch.

Round Two: Discrediting the Study Results

Retraction Watch was again the first to misreport the retraction of the Mawson paper from the Journal of Translational Science last week. Rather than reporting on the facts, Retraction Watch took an activist role in the attempted takedown of Dr. Mawson’s research. Misconstruing and misrepresenting another scientist’s research is considered scientific misconduct. Retraction Watch still has (at the time of writing) an article posted that claims the paper has been doubly retracted. Their actions have a ripple effect, furthering the harm to Dr. Mawson and his younger colleagues, actions which are harmful to reputations, careers, and their future livelihoods. Snopes, the “fact-checking” entity, was still reporting that the papers were retracted because of methodological flaws, with only a tiny disclaimer at the bottom showing the papers restored to the Journal’s webpages. I pointed out the error to the editors and they updated the story today, without apology for inaccuracies.

Continuing to retain articles that are demonstrably and provably false on their website shows a lack of regard for the integrity and truth they espouse to protect. The public should be aware that their representations are not well researched and supported by the facts, and that the due diligence they claim to conduct in the interest of scientific integrity is not as it appears once you scratch the surface.

No answers have been forthcoming from Retraction Watch’s editor Alison Cook. She has not replied to my inquiries. Snopes founder David Mikkelson and managing editor Brooke Binkowski did not reply to messages. I did not receive explanations from the journal editors either.

The Digital Media Law Project publishes guidelines for publishing information that “harms the reputation of another person, group, or organization.” Injury to one’s reputation that stems from a falsehood is defamation, and claiming an article was retracted when it wasn’t is false, defamatory and should be corrected when notice and evidence has been provided to the author of the defamatory article. In the case of the Snopes article, the DMLP states “the republication of someone else’s words can itself be defamatory. In other words, you won’t be immune simply because you are quoting another person making the defamatory statement, even if you properly attribute the statement to its source.”

The DMLP also advises publications to “be prompt and give your correction the same prominent position that you gave the inaccurate information you previously posted.”

Can Snopes and Retraction Watch be Trusted? 

The whole ordeal puts scientific publishing into a bad light. Can it be so easy to push editors out of publishing? Is the code of conduct meaningless? Don’t the researchers have recourse to defend their work if there are allegations against it, in a scholarly manner? Has science stooped so low, so beneath accepted standards of professionalism, that it is time to call in lawyers?

This disturbing event leaves the public bewildered. Is there something to worry about for our children’s health or not? Why did these researchers find such a high risk of autism and other disorders in vaccinated children?  What are the possible mechanisms of immune system injury from vaccination in children?

The way the Mawson study was received undermines public trust in a system that is meant to be seeking better health for humanity. It will continue to erode so long as it fails to answer these questions that our children need answers to, now.
