CDC CLAIMS VACCINES DO NOT CAUSE AUTISM – BUT STILL NO STUDIES ON ALUMINUM VACCINE ADJUVANT
A CDC website claims “Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism”, but lists no studies that evaluate a possible correlation between adjuvants and vaccines. Aluminum adjuvants are included in vaccines to trigger an abnormally large immune response. There are several published papers in multiple countries, including animal research , which link large immune responses triggered by aluminum adjuvants to abnormal immune activation and chronic health conditions. It is a fundamental scientific fact that aluminum adjuvants can be ingested safely by adults, but that far lower doses injected in a vaccine has an unusual effect of eliciting an abnormally strong immune response. It is not understood why this is the case – a prominent scientist has referred to this as ‘the immunologist’s dirty little secret’.
In the late 1980s to early 1990s, the introduction of new first-year vaccines for Hib and Hepatitis B greatly increased the abnormal immune activation in 0-6 month old infants. Per the EPA, autism began increasing sharply in this same time period. However, there has never been a population study to evaluate whether chronic health conditions such as autism, ADHD, and food allergies are associated with an increase in abnormal immune activation due to adjuvants.
