Are vaccine adjuvants – like aluminum – increasing the risk of ASD and AD?
In the study "Brain-reactive IgG correlates with auto immunity in mothers of a child with an autism spectrum disorder" the study found that "mothers of an ASD [autism spectrum disorder] child were four times more likely to harbor anti-brain antibodies than unselected women of child-bearing age (10.5 vs 2.6%)."
The study also found that nine percent of mothers, with a child who has autism, had anti-brain antibodies and over 50 percent of these mothers were also ANA (Antinuclear Antibodies) positive. ANA is a common marker for auto-immune disorders.
Why should this shock you or wake you up from your vaccines are safe and effective slumber?
Because, it turns out that aluminum in vaccines, and adjuvants in general, are known to trigger a newly appreciated syndrome of auto immunity called ASIA (Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants).
Studies of vaccines and ASIA:
Typically, when a foreign invader, like a virus or bacteria enters the body, a normally functioning immune system produces antibodies to attack the virus or bacteria. In people who have an autoimmune disease (AD), their immune system mistakenly recognizes their body's own healthy tissues and organs as foreign invaders and produces antibodies that attack this healthy tissue – and in the case of autism, the mistaken foreign invader is the brain. These antibodies, produced against self, create the disease.
Approximately 50 million people in the United States live and cope with some type of AD and 75 percent of these people are women. Autoimmune disease is one of the top 10 leading causes of death in women under the age of 65 and AD comprises more than 100 diseases namely: psoriasis, Hashimotos thyroiditis, Sjögren's syndrome, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and Crohn's disease.
Given the number of studies pointing to autoimmune issues in the current autism epidemic, the known triggering of autoimmune disorders by aluminum in vaccines as adjuvants, it becomes clear that the DTaP vaccine, with its huge dose of aluminum (330 micrograms per dose), has no place in pregnancy and that the Hepatitis B vaccine, with its 250 micrograms of aluminum, should not be given to newborns who don't need it. As a newborn, Hepatitis B vaccine is needed only if your birth mother has hepatitis B, which is less than one percent of mothers in the U.S. and we know in advance who they are from prenatal screening.
