Why the Autism Vaccine Connection Won't Go Away

Posted by on

The mainstream media and internet discussion forums seek to discredit anyone who questions vaccine safety, using the propaganda smear term, "anti-vaxer", to personally attack people who suggest there is a vaccine/autism connection and derail public discussions of vaccine safety. People on the payroll of corporations and special interest lobbies patrol internet discussions of vaccines, pretending to be typical users.

The media repeats over and over that there is absolutely no connection between vaccines and autism as do the scientists, organizations and studies they cite. So if the media and their experts are correct, why are the number of people continually growing who choose not to vaccinate themselves and their families - or to limit or delay vaccinations?

Certainly special interest groups and elected officials on their payroll are pressuring parents to comply with the current vaccine schedule which has grown to 69 doses of 16 vaccines by the age of 18. In fact, these special interest groups, elected officials and lawyers looking for more ways to make money are launching a campaign to sue parents who choose not to vaccinate their children. The unpatriotic Patriot Act, which takes away our basic constitutional rights, also has a provision to force citizens, including children, to be immunized in times of emergency.

The reason the public's belief that vaccines cause autism simply won't go away is simple:  vaccines actually cause autism.  Millions of parents have now observed this first-hand, watching their children slip away after receiving a vaccine, losing eye contact, language, and eventually receiving an autism diagnosis. Autism, a rare diagnosis in the 1970's (1 in 10,000 in the U.S.) now effects over 60 million people worldwide, with 1 in 42 boys in the U.S. currently being diagnosed with autism. I have talked with hundreds of parents of vaccine-damaged autistic children over the past 15 years and I am one of those parents whose son lost language after a vaccine and was later diagnosed with autism.  I saw it with my own eyes and so did millions of other parents and their family members.

The fact that the United States government has a federal vaccine court to compensate families whose children who were harmed by vaccines is an admission by the government that vaccines harm children. It is very difficult for parents qualify for seeking damages through this vaccine court and to prove vaccine damage.  The vaccine court refuses to call a vaccine damaged child as autistic, only award damages to children diagnosed with encephalomyelitis (brain inflammation) which is also found in autism. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck; what the vaccine court calls encephalomyelitis is autism. Despite these hurdles, over 2,100 families have managed to get compensation for damage from this court since the 1980's.

The federal government's own Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System (VAERS) database showed in March of 2015 adverse effects reported from the Hepatitis B vaccine are currently 55,688 and for the MMR are 67276. Keep in mind that adverse effects are greatly under-reported and these reports are usually the most extreme cases. Children who experience subtler adverse effects which can take months to manifest tend not to get reported. Also reported are 1053 deaths (mostly children under the age of 3) reported shortly after receiving the Hepatitis B vaccine. There is also additional research and reports from parents linking the Hepatits B vaccine to autism and to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

This federal vaccine court was created with taxpayer money to distribute to victims of vaccine damage instead at the same time as this law also made it illegal to sue pharmaceutical companies for vaccine damage.  A lack of accountability by pharmaceutical companies for vaccine damage, caused a gold rush by pharmaceutical companies racing to create new vaccines for profit. Each new vaccine added to the vaccine schedule resulted in billions of dollars of additional profits for pharmaceuticals. The number of vaccines, necessary or not, skyrocketed until today, children receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines before age 6. This is far more than children received before the 1980s and I personally received only 5 vaccines in my childhood, growing up in the 1950's and 1960's.

When children are given shots with multiple diseases at once or are vaccinated with multiple vaccines at once, they are much more likely to have a vaccine reaction that results in permanent disability. Also, what often happens is the child is progressively damaged as they receive more immunizations until they final reach the tipping point and have a severe vaccine reaction. The most notorious vaccines for provoking a severe vaccine reaction are the Hepatitis B (HIB), Measles Mumps and Rubelle (MMR), and Diptheria, Pertussis, and Tetanus (DPT).

Also note that vaccine damage isn't just linked to autism; vaccine damage is also linked to other health and developmental issues, including ADHD, diabetes, allergies, asthma, seizures, Alzheimer's in the elderly (flu shots), cancer, and various other auto-immune conditions.

The "pro-vaxers" always cite the polio vaccine as the gold standard for vaccination and spread fear that terrible pandemics like polio will return because of "anti-vaxers." The problem with this argument is that it is too simplistic and derails any discussion of specific vaccines, evaluating benefit vs risk on a vaccine-by-vaccine basis, and requiring pharmaceutical companies to take steps to ensure that vaccines that are made safer and potentially harmful ingredients are removed.

ALL vaccines should be reviewed for safety and manufacturing processes. Certainly it can't be good to inject babies with commonly used neurotoxic additives:  aluminum, mercury, monosodium glutamate (MSG) and formaldehyde. The FDA has even allowed the term "mercury free" to be used in vaccines that still have some mercury content. The safety of vaccines and how they are made needs to be public discussion, not decided secretively in back rooms in Washington, so that the public can decide what is best for their own health and demand health policies that benefit them instead of special interest groups.

Vaccines can and should be made safely. A vaccine, like the Hepatits B vaccine, clearly does more harm than good and should be removed from childhood vaccine schedules. The MMR is also a strong candidate for removal based on the large number of reported vaccine reactions. Some vaccines simply don't work well and should be discontinued, like the flu vaccines, which only work 50% of the time and can also cause the flu and increase the risk of Alzheimer's by a factor of a 10 in the elderly. Also new technologies are on the horizon that use different strategies to prevent diseases and may eventually render many vaccines obsolete.
