***Our goal is to compile a comprehensive list of the valid scientific research behind vaccine safety and side effects. We will publish comments that include links to relevant studies from their direct sources (not media articles or opinion). Let’s empower mothers and patients to make educated decisions. Before you vaccinate, read the science.***
Study: For 1 in 168 children, vaccines cause side effects so severe that they require an ER visit.
Study: Boys vaccinated against Hep B at birth are 3x more likely to develop autism.
Analysis: SIDs and Infant Mortality Rates Regressed Against Number Of Vaccine Doses Routinely Given “A high statistically significant correlation between increasing number of vaccine doses and increasing infant mortality rates…”
Case Study: Rare simultaneous Sudden Infant Death (SID) of identical twins 2 days after vaccination.
Study: Rotovirus linked to fatal intestinal disorder in 1 in every 4670 infants. “There was also an increase in the risk of intussusception after the second dose of the vaccine… The strong association between vaccination with RRV-TV and intussusception among otherwise healthy infants supports the existence of a causal relation.”
Study: “Epidemiological evidence supporting an association between… Thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines and the subsequent risk of an ASD diagnosis.”
Study: “The higher the proportion of children receiving recommended vaccinations, the higher was the prevalence of AUT or SLI. A 1% increase in vaccination was associated with an additional 680 children having AUT or SLI. Neither parental behavior nor access to care affected the results, since vaccination proportions were not significantly related (statistically) to any other disability or to the number of pediatricians in a U.S. state. The results suggest that although mercury has been removed from many vaccines, other culprits may link vaccines to autism.”
Analysis: “The risk of autism among African American children vaccinated before the age of 2 years was 340% that of those vaccinated later.”
Analysis: “Methodological issues and evidence of malfeasance in research purporting to show thimerosal in vaccines is safe.”
Study: Link between antibodies from MMR vaccine and central nervous system autoimmune dysfunction in children with autism
Study: Link between aluminum in vaccines and prevalence of autism
Study: “The related and damaging effect of exposure to high levels of mercury… a viable alternative explanation for the occurrence of regressive autism. The evidence indicates there is alteration to chromosome structure and/or function.”
Case Series: Vaccine additives cause autism-like symptoms.
Analysis: “A comprehensive review of mercury-provoked autism. In conclusion, the overwhelming preponderance of the evidence favours acceptance that Hg exposure is capable of causing some ASDs.”
Analysis: Explanation of why some children are at greater risk of developing autism after vaccines. “The evidence suggests that the abnormal sulfation chemistry, limited thiol availability, and decreased GSH reserve capacity could explain why the adverse effects of TM are greater in a subpopulation of children with this susceptibility…”
Evidence: “Certain individuals with a mild mitochondrial defect may be highly susceptible to mitochondrial specific toxins” found in vaccines, resulting in autism spectrum disorders.
Review: Autism linked to encephalitis (brain swelling) following vaccination.
Hypotheses: Conjugate vaccines may predispose children to autism spectrum disorders.
Study: Link between autism and prenatal exposure to heavy metals via Rhogam shot in RH-negative mothers. “Children with ASDs (28.30%) were significantly more likely (odds ratio 2.35, 95% confidence interval 1.17-4.52, p < 0.01) to have Rh-negative mothers than controls (14.36%).”
Study: Autistic children have difficulty excreting heavy metals like mercury, as evidenced by significantly lower levels of mercury in their hair. This points to a genetic susceptibility to autism in children who cannot effectively detox vaccine toxins.
Analysis: “A possible central mechanism in autism spectrum disorders… the link between excessive vaccination, use of aluminum and ethylmercury as vaccine adjuvants, food allergies, gut dysbiosis, and abnormal formation of the developing brain.”
Study: “The role of mercury [found in vaccines] in the pathogenesis of autism.”
Study: Vaccine additives induce autistic behavior in mice.
Study: Vaccine-induced autoimmunity may cause autism.
Study: DNA changes and the overuse of vaccines linked to autism
Study: Mercury toxic encephalopathy manifesting with clinical symptoms of regressive autistic disorders. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17454560
Study: Relation of mercury to high autism rates in boys
Study: Elevated levels of measles in children with Autism
Survey Study: Tylenol following MMR Linked to Autism
Study: Fetal and Retroviral Contaminants in Vaccines Linked to Autism and Cancer. “…Linear regression revealed that Varicella and Hepatitis A immunization coverage was significantly correlated to autistic disorder cases… Autistic disorder change points years are coincident with introduction of vaccines manufactured using human fetal cell lines, containing fetal and retroviral contaminants, into childhood vaccine regimens. This pattern was repeated in the US, UK, Western Australia and Denmark. Thus, rising autistic disorder prevalence is directly related to vaccines manufactured utilizing human fetal cells…”
Evidence: Scientists have known for decades about the dangers of insertional mutagenesis caused by using human fetal cell lines in vaccines. Instead of conducting safety studies, the FDA has ignored the dangers and merely regulates the amount of human DNA that can be present in a vaccine to no greater than 10ng–an amount that has not been proven safe. www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/ac/05/slides/5-4188S1_4draft.ppt
Hypothesis: conjugate vaccines may predispose children to autism spectrum disorders
Regressional Analysis: Rise in autism coincides perfectly with rise in vaccines. “The relationship between the proportion of children who received the recommended vaccines by age 2 years and the prevalence of autism (AUT) or speech or language impairment (SLI) in each U.S. state from 2001 and 2007 was determined. A positive and statistically significant relationship was found: The higher the proportion of children receiving recommended vaccinations, the higher was the prevalence of AUT or SLI.”
Study: Relationship between Thimerosal-containing vaccine administration and the risk for an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis in the United States
Study: Adverse events after vaccines containing adjuvants linked to autism and autoimmune conditions. “A traditional infectious disease vaccine is a preparation of live attenuated, inactivated or killed pathogen that stimulates immunity. Vaccine immunologic adjuvants are compounds incorporated into vaccines to enhance immunogenicity. Adjuvants have recently been implicated in the new syndrome named ASIA autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants…. The most frequent clinical findings were pyrexia 68%, arthralgias 47%, cutaneous disorders 33%, muscle weakness 16% and myalgias 14%. Three patients had diagnosis of Guillain-Barre syndrome, one patient had Adult-Still’s disease 3 days after vaccination. A total of 76% of the events occurred in the first 3 days post-vaccination. Two patients with previous autoimmune disease showed severe adverse reactions with the reactivation of their illness… Vaccines containing adjuvants may be associated with an increased risk of autoimmune/inflammatory adverse events following immunization.
Study: Higher Heavy Metals in Hair Samples from Severely Autistic Children
Study: Subtle DNA changes and the overuse of vaccines in autism. “There is a compelling argument that the occurrence of regressive autism is attributable to genetic and chromosomal abnormalities, arising from the overuse of vaccines, which subsequently affects the stability and function of the autonomic nervous system and physiological systems… This article explores the issues and concludes that sensory dysfunction and systemic failure, manifested as autism, is the inevitable consequence arising from subtle DNA alteration and consequently from the overuse of vaccines.”
Study: Elevated levels of measles in children with Autism
