A recent extensive review of the published science on vaccine safety in support of our legal challenge was truly inspiring. It was a cogent reminder that there are thousands of well researched studies that identify the metabolic pathways by which vaccine ingredients can cause harm and reveal how vaccines can disrupt critical biological functions. It affirmed for me yet again that we do have the science on our side!
Over several weeks I re-visited a large volume of published studies where scientists have done the ‘bench science’ to discover how vaccines cause injury. Re-reading and sorting through these, I chose studies for our Science list which demonstrate not only that “the science is not settled” on vaccine safety, but that aluminum used in many vaccines is toxic to all life forms and that vaccines have never been subjected to the exacting research standard demanded of all other drugs licensed for human use. Irrefutably vaccine safety remains a HUGE and growing concern.
The burning question is, how have vaccine regulators gotten away with licensing poorly researched biochemical drugs containing neurotoxic and immune system damaging ingredients for injection into humans without first having to undergo the most rigorous safety testing?
The strongest vaccine science aggregates around aluminum adjuvant toxicity and the impact of its toxicity on the developing immune system and brain. Intimately involved in this toxicity is immune activation ignited by aluminum adjuvants which provoke the immune system into hyperactivity over and over with each set of vaccines injected in the first few years of life. This causes the brain’s own immune system to remain in a constantly simmering, inflamed state, leading to varying degrees of brain injury.
Another mechanism, ‘molecular mimicry’, is triggered by vaccines when a hyper activated immune system starts attacking one’s own cells which then leads to the various autoimmune disorders that are increasingly common today. As explained in this 2018 study,
“Molecular mimicry refers to a significant similarity between certain pathogenic elements contained in the vaccine and specific human proteins. This similarity may lead to immune crossreactivity, wherein the reaction of the immune system towards the pathogenic antigens may harm the similar human proteins, essentially causing autoimmune disease.”
The researchers also explain that if there’s an inherited genetic vulnerability to autoimmunity and immune system ‘tolerance’ is broken by ‘environmental’ factors such as aluminum adjuvants injected via vaccines, the immune system can no longer differentiate between what is ‘self’ or ‘non-self’. It starts attacking both the injected vaccine antigens as well as the body’s own similar proteins or peptides.
“Molecular mimicry is a prototype of such processes, wherein an immune reaction directed against foreign pathogenic elements, bearing similarity to human proteins, may evolve into an autoimmune process targeting the homologous self-proteins.”
As early as 2009, Canadian neuroscientist Dr. Chris Shaw warned about the neurological effects of aluminum (Al) adjuvants when injecting it into mice in laboratory experiments. He was on a mission to find what caused so many Gulf War veterans to develop ALS. Shaw and his research partner Lucija Tomljenovic continued to pursue this line of research and over the years, published numerous compelling studies on the neurotoxicity of aluminum adjuvants.
Research in immunology and neurology determined long ago that the immune system and neurological system, including the brain, are intimately intertwined. What impacts the immune system is going to affect the brain. Hence it’s important to understand that the more the immune system is activated with neurotoxic elements like Al adjuvants, the more likely it will result in damage to the immune system and/or the brain.
In their 2012 study, Mechanisms of aluminum adjuvant toxicity and autoimmunity in pediatric populations Shaw and Tomljenovic discuss the intimate relationship between the immune system and neurological system;
“….it is now clearly established that there is a bidirectional neuro-immune cross-talk that plays crucial roles in immunoregulation as well as brain function. In turn, perturbations of the neuro-immune axis have been demonstrated in many autoimmune diseases encompassed in “ASIA” [autoimmune inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants] and are thought to be driven by a hyperactive immune response; and the same components of the neuro-immune axis that play key roles in brain development and immune function are heavily targeted by Al adjuvants.”
Ramping up the immune system with Al adjuvants, can injure the developing brain of infants and young children. They are concerned about the inadequacy of safety research of Al adjuvants injected repeatedly into children, and that research comparing the health outcome in vaccinated versus non-vaccinated children has not been done;
Children are much more vulnerable to toxic insult than adults, yet children are regularly exposed to much higher amounts of Al because the highest number of vaccines are given early in life – this in addition to the Al they absorb daily from environmental sources of air, food and water.
“Immune challenges during early development, including those vaccine-induced, can lead to permanent detrimental alterations of the brain and immune function. Experimental evidence also shows that simultaneous administration of as little as two to three immune adjuvants can overcome genetic resistance to autoimmunity.
Infants and young children should not be viewed as ‘small adults.’ Their unique physiology makes them much more vulnerable to noxious environmental insults in comparison with the adult population. In spite of this, children are routinely exposed to much higher levels of Al vaccine adjuvants than adults, even though adequate safety data on these compounds are lacking.”
The researchers reiterate the essential point;
“That Al vaccine adjuvants can induce significant autoimmune conditions in humans can hardly be disputed.”
Well here we are 8 years later and nothing has changed in terms of the public’s grasp of the urgency of what is actually happening to children’s health today and the role of vaccines in health decline. At the same time, the medical industry, public health regulators and media remain silent on the epidemic of neuroimmune and autoimmune disorders while aggressively censoring the voices questioning vaccine safety.
Society remains stuck in the false narrative of fear of infectious diseases when the real threat is the destruction of children’s immune systems and brain via the repeated injections of ‘life saving’ vaccines.
Instead of science, medicine, and health agencies working co-operatively together with parents to solve the monumental problem of deteriorating health of our children, and critically examining the impact of vaccines on the interconnected, complex workings of the immune system and the developing brain, officialdom is busy demonizing the ‘vaccine hesitant’ and censoring all attempts to discuss these pressing concerns. Instead of protecting children’s health, the medical industry and vaccine regulators are busy protecting the vaccine program at all costs.
Today we have a very long list of non-infectious illnesses for which there is no “easy fix”. We’ve traded what used to be a week or 10 days of fever, rash and minor illness discomfort for a lifetime of chronic sickness. With this Faustian bargain comes a weakened immune system that is more vulnerable and at greater risk of contracting circulating pathogens, time lost from school and work because of ongoing illnesses, increased stress and worry suffered by the child and the family. The level of stress is so great in many families of chronically ill children, that it compromises everyone’s health from the increased medical expenses to treat the illness, and even more costs to seek alternative therapies for severe chronic disorders for which the current medical system has few answers.
Vaccines and their ingredients are directly linked to many of the underlying medical conditions afflicting large numbers of children today. These include varying degrees of immune system and brain injuries that manifest in myriad ways as neurological injuries, seizure disorders, learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder, obesity, diabetes, cancers, leukemia and lymphomas, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, allergies, anaphylaxis (deadly allergies to everyday foods), gastrointestinal damage, chronic infections, mitochondrial disorders, glial cell activation, brain inflammation, damage to the blood-brain-barrier, glutathione depletion, endocrine dysfunction, and other disorders that now afflict large numbers of children.
The scheduled injection of repeat doses of biochemical drugs containing neurotoxic components into children’s bodies during the most rapid and vulnerable periods of brain and immune system growth in the first 3 years of life must be re-examined.
Our children are bombarded by air, food and water with chemicals of known and unknown toxicity, including endocrine disrupters. Some babies are injected within hours of birth with hepatitis B and/or BCG (tuberculosis) vaccine. Then at 2 months, the baby is injected with up to 8-10 vaccines at the ‘well baby’ doctor’s visit. This is repeated multiple times over the next months and years.
Human infants are not genetically programmed nor naturally equipped to be able to cope with this kind of deeply penetrating intrusion and shock to the immune system that results in a cascade of inflammatory events nature didn’t intend them to endure, but are readily provoked by the vaccinator’s needle. Too often our children then succumb to neurological events, brain inflammation, impaired brain function, reduced IQ, even leading to a shortened life span for many who have been chronically ill since childhood.
Discussed here is a small tip of a large trove of thousands of published studies on the documented toxicity and health hazards of aluminum that contaminates our environment from industrial use, and the aluminum adjuvants in vaccines that trigger debilitating diseases. The science shows us that there is a HUGE problem with Al toxicity and vaccine safety.
Dr. Chris Shaw in collaboration with Stephanie Seneff and other scientists wrote the following 2014 review article on the published science on aluminum-induced neurological diseases.
They concluded that:
“Irrefutable research evidence shows that Al exposure is harmful. Further, results discussed in this paper show that it is counterfactual for researchers to argue that Al is universally safe or beneficial even in trace amounts”
“The entire basis on which vaccine safety trials are conducted does not even minimally meet normal standards of drug safety testing and licensing. When aluminum neurotoxic aluminum adjuvants are used as placebos to prove vaccines safety, it can rightly be claimed that the study and outcome are fraudulent, as safety can only be proven by using non-reactive, neutral placebos in the comparator group [emphasis ours]
“Although Al is neurotoxic, it is claimed by proponents that the concentrations at which Al is used in the vaccines do not represent a health hazard. For that reason, vaccine trails often treat an Al adjuvant containing injection as a harmless “placebo”, or they use another Al-containing vaccine to treat a “control group”, despite evidence that Al in vaccine relevant exposures is universally toxic to humans and animals.
It’s use in a supposed “placebo” or in any “control” treatment in vaccine trials is indefensible. It is precisely analogous to comparing fire A against fire B, to make the argument that since A is no hotter than B, A is therefore not a fire.”
All these findings plausibly implicate Al adjuvants in pediatric vaccines as causal factors contributing to increased rates of autism spectrum disorders in countries where multiple doses are universally administered.”
Aluminum is toxic to all living things. Injecting Al adjuvants has never been safety tested experimentally in humans. Yet despite it being a proven neurotoxin, it continues to be used in many vaccines and is injected into babies and children with impunity.
Seems that vaccinologists have all the power these days. They don’t want to hear from the neuroscientists and immunologist who are researching and publishing on Al toxicity, immune activation, and autoimmunity and brain injuries.
How is it that one branch of science, vaccinology, whose foundational scientific base is highly suspect because it doesn’t use neutral placebos as controls in its clinical vaccine trials, has been given the power to ignore the outpouring of research on Al toxicity and vaccine injury by the neuro scientists and immunologists? Who’s calling the shots here, and why are the neuroimmune scientists’ findings ignored, even denigrated? And why do the politicians refuse to look at this and the media censors it?
The absence of high quality, independent vaccine safety trials using neutral/non reactive placebos means that legitimate safety testing on the accepted principles of vaccination has never been done!
Pertussis containing vaccines – a monumental health disaster
The latest research from mainstream sources tells us that the acellular whooping cough (pertussis) vaccines are causing a major health disaster. The 112-Year Odyssey of Pertussis and Pertussis Vaccines—Mistakes Made and Implications for the Future.
In the above article, James D. Cherry, the ‘father’ of pertussis vaccine research at the Department of Pediatrics, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, says that,
“Because of linked-epitope suppression, all children who were primed by DTaP vaccines will be more susceptible to pertussis throughout their lifetimes, and there is no easy way to decrease this increased lifetime susceptibility.”
“Linked epitope suppression” mentioned by Dr. Cherry in the above article, also known as ‘original antigenic sin’ is a fancy way of saying, a screwed up immune system that is locked into responding to one particular aspect of a vaccine antigen, and remains paralyzed in that particular mode. It’s unable to respond to slightly altered nuances of the same organism it may come in contact in the future – something a normal immune system is able to do.
Virtually all babies get the 5 in 1 pertussis containing shot DTaP+IPV+Hib or the 6 in 1 Infanrix Hexa with the added hepatitis B component. These primary pertussis containing vaccines, enhanced with a huge wallop of Al adjuvant, are now deemed useless in preventing infection or providing ‘herd immunity’. We now have a vast population of fully vaccinated people at risk of contracting the disease asymptomatically over and over in their lifetime, who will continue to spread pertussis to the most vulnerable, especially infants at higher risk of death from whooping cough. So much for herd immunity.
The fear based vaccine agenda, in addition to causing the types of health injuries discussed above, has resulted in the fully vaccinated become the permanent lifetime carriers and spreaders of pertussis. As such, injection of these products should be terminated immediately and alternate modes of dealing with the illnesses should they arise, be implemented. At the very least the overt poisoning would be stopped.
Forget about ‘herd immunity’. Pertussis vaccines guarantee the exact opposite! That the vaccinated will get the disease and continue to spread it is also confirmed in this article from the School of Public Health at Boston University on the inability of aP (acellular Pertussis) vaccines to prevent infections, “Experimental and immunologic data has shown that aP vaccines do not provide herd immunity, while mathematical models imply otherwise.”
Poor children in the developing world are still subjected to the highly reactive whole cell DPT vaccines that were discontinued in Canada, the US and many other Western countries. Studies in Africa have persistently shown that DPT vaccinated children are estimated to suffer a 5X higher risk of death from other causes and infections, explained so well by Robert F. Kennedy in this article.
Adding insult to injury, the Hib portion of the 5 in 1 combo or 6 in 1 Hexavalent vaccines do not protect against the numerous haemophilus bacteria sero groups that have replaced the ‘b’ group which previously dominated this disease and was suppressed by the Hib vaccine. So while the Hib vaccine continues to suppress the ‘b’ sero group of the disease, it’s multi-lettered cousins (for which there is no vaccine) have taken over the haemonpilus infection group that continues to infect children. It’s a vaccine merry-go-round!
Meanwhile our children’s health is being crushed by Al toxicity which also plays a big role in driving the explosion of allergies because it intensifies the immune system’s reaction to all the components of the vaccines, including cross reactivity to the food protein particles in vaccines.
Surely it’s time to awaken to the health disaster caused by these toxic injections inflicted on healthy children who are not otherwise in need of a medical intervention. With all the medical diagnostics in place today, it’s pretty obvious that children are not healthier for the massive amount of injected biological drugs they’re subjected to. Isn’t it time that we as parents and the public demand that all vaccine mandates be TERMINATED, that vaccine safety research be elevated to a much higher standard of safety than other drugs? How is it that our health regulators have turned a blind eye to such low-standard of testing for vaccines from which true “risk/benefit” analyses of vaccine safety and effectiveness cannot possibly be determined? At best the current basis of vaccine licensing is fraudulent, at worst, it is criminal neglect to unleash improperly tested biological drugs which the public is compelled to inject into their children.
A final note from Professor Christopher Exley, world’s leading expert on aluminium toxicity;
However, it is time that we accept that aluminium is inimical to living processes and that we must only continue to use it when it has been proven to be both effective and safe. This must include its complacent and misunderstood use in vaccines.”
