July 2013 – “The best data indicates that vaccine induced chronic disease is now of a magnitude that dwarfs almost all prior poisoning of humans including poisoning from agents like asbestos, low dose radiation, lead and even cigarettes.” But unfortunately, “Most patients don’t even realize that they are suffering from the adverse effects of vaccines. Even more concerning, patients and or their parents are being harassed, accused of practicing poor dieting and exercise habits leading to development obesity and diabetes when in fact they suffer from vaccine induced obesity and diabetes.”
The above statement by immunologist, Bart Classen MD. appears in a press release announcing his recently published study in which he found that, “The prevalence of autism has a statistically significant positive association with the incidence of type 1 diabetes but has a statistically significant inverse association with type 2 diabetes…. The pathophysiology is believed to involve vaccine induced macrophage activation, especially by aluminum adjuvants and complex polysaccharides, and resulting interleukin 1, interleukin 6, and TNF [pro-inflammation immune-related factors] production.” Dr Classen notes that, “the direct correlation between the incidence of type 1 diabetes and the prevalence of autism suggests these autoimmune diseases not only share the same pathophysiology but that epidemics are likely to share the same etiology.”
The study data showing yearly incidence of diabetes at age 5-19 yrs and simultaneous prevalence of autism at age eight was gleaned from two US studies and the CDC. It includes information on White, Black, Hispanic, Asian and Native American children. In the Conclusions (pg 1-2) of a 2009 review of research providing incidence data on both types of diabetes in children – another of the many diabetes studies Dr Classen has written – he discusses in detail the evidence that type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes/metabolic syndrome are “opposite extremes of an immune spectrum disorder induced by immune stimulants”, that race-related cortisol production is a determining factor for diabetes type, and that vaccination is a likely source of immune stimulation which could give rise to diabetes.
In the current study, Dr Classen also notes that both type 1 diabetes and autism occur predominantly in males, both are epidemic, especially in Europe and North America, and patients with autism have an increased family history of type 1 diabetes. He states: “Prior publications have shown that the incidence of type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease, is increased in those races with lower cortisol activity. … Autism has been associated with decreased cortisol activity and autoimmune activity. These phenomena are likely not independent in autism but instead the low cortisol activity in patients increases the risk of autoimmune diseases that can include autoimmune autism.” In USA, Whites produce less cortisol than other races.
VRAN appreciates the many years of research Dr Classen has undertaken to uncover roots of these diseases, some of the most debilitating and burgeoning chronic illness in children today.
