Autism and Childhood Vaccination Link Confirmed in U.S. Population Study

By Heartspring Staff

Autism first appeared in the 1990s as a mystery to doctors. Because genetic predisposition only accounts for a small percentage autism victims, researchers suspect one or more environmental triggers.

A study published in the 2011 January edition of the Journal Toxicology Environment and Health, proposes how the battery of vaccinations injected into young children may indeed be linked to autism.

The relationship between children who received "recommended" vaccines by age two and the occurrence of autism, and speech/language impairment in each US state from 2001 and 2007 was examined.

The results show a statistically significant link between vaccinated children and the higher risk of autism, and speech/language dysfunctions.

680 children in the study where identified as having autism, translating into a 1% increased risk of autism for children receiving vaccinations.

Researchers conclude in this study how pharmaceutical corporations claim removal of mercury from some vaccines, and that additional toxic agents may link vaccine shots to autism in children.

Study Finds Aluminum In Vaccines Causes Neurologic Damage

Investigators injected mice with adjuvants that mimicked the anthrax vaccine schedule set by the Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program. The investigators concluded in that study "our data suggest that the aluminum hydroxide adjuvant induces both behavioral and motor deficits and the loss of motor neurons and increased presence of astrocytes [astrocytes are cells that express inflammatory markers] in spinal cord and neuronal apoptosis [cell death] in the primary motor cortex." When Professor Shaw was asked in an article by Pieta Wooley about this research Professor Shaw replied "No one in my lab wants to get vaccinated. - Full ArticleExit Site HealthSentinel.com
