Autism And Vaccines

Share Post :

The link between autism and vaccinations has been discussed in the medical literature since early in the 20th century – before there was even a name for this condition. It had been given various titles such as post-vaccinal encephalitis but the description and symptoms described can fit into what we call today Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Anyone who thinks that the vaccine-autism link began and ended with Dr Andrew Wakefield needs to do more research.

This link has been around for over 100 years now and with a rate today of 1 child in 36 – up from 1 child in 10,000 just 30 years ago, it is time to stop obfuscating and start looking at what is causing this epidemic in our children and do something to stop it!

Autism-vaccine science

As we all know, authorities maintain there have been many, many science studies from around the world that show vaccines do not cause autism. These are easy to debunk, for two reasons:

  1. None of these studies include a totally unvaccinated group for comparison.
  2. These studies between them only look at one ingredient of vaccines (mercury) and one vaccine (the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine, MMR).

For more on this, see the following article by J.B. Handley (this article is about a study which is promoted by Australian health officials on the Immunise Australia website):
Meta-Analysis madness in vaccine-autism science


In the past the focus has been on the MMR and mercury in vaccines as possible causes of autism, but today the focus has shifted towards new science investigating injected aluminium.

Aluminium has been used as an adjuvant in many vaccines for decades now. An adjuvant is put into vaccines to increase the immune response to the disease components of the vaccine.

Aluminium is used in vaccines given at birth and in the first 6 months of life, as well as in vaccines given to older children. It is not in the live virus vaccines such as the MMR and chicken pox vaccines, and is not in the Australian flu vaccine. It is also present in the vitamin K shot and can be in other injections.

Aluminium safety

Injected aluminium is in nano-particulate form, while dietary aluminium is dissolved. Dietary aluminium enters the body orally, while injected aluminium is injected into muscle.

These are very significant differences, yet our health authorities still insist injected aluminium is safe because it is injected in much smaller amounts than is taken in regularly in food and water.

Amazingly, the study used by health authorities to determine their so-called “safe” amount of aluminium injected into babies was done in adults not babies, with the oral type of aluminium not the injected type, and the aluminium was diffused into the blood, rather than injected into muscle.

See the following article for more on this:

New discoveries

Scientists from various parts of the world have now made discoveries which together paint a picture of how injected aluminium is causing neurological damage, including autism.

In a nutshell, the scientists have established that aluminium nano particles injected into muscle are swallowed up and stored by immune cells called macrophages, these macrophages may travel around the body and may cross the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain carrying their aluminium cargo, there the aluminium causes inflammation in the brain and thus autism and other disorders.

Read more about all of this in the following very comprehensive article:

International scientists have found autism’s cause. What will Americans do?

If you would like technical information about aluminium adjuvants in vaccines, watch this talk given by Professor Chris Exley from Keele University UK in December 2018. Professor Exley is considered the world’s foremost expert on the biological effects of aluminium (read about him in the article just above).


Also read Professor Chris Exley’s letter to the CDC, June 15 2017  From the letter:

The Center for Disease Control’s claim on its website that “Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism” is unsupported with respect to aluminum adjuvants and this claim stifles the important research to determine the safety of aluminum adjuvants used in vaccines.

Aluminium and the MMR vaccine

Many thousands of parents around the world report their healthy child regressed into autism after MMR vaccination—how can the new science implicating injected aluminium be reconciled with this observation when the MMR does not contain aluminium?

Scientists have found that inflammation in the body stimulates macrophages to move into the brain, and it is known the MMR vaccine creates inflammation. So if a child is given the MMR, any macrophages around the body storing aluminium obtained from previous vaccines can be drawn into the brain.

Read about this on Vaccine Papers in this article: Vaccine Aluminum Travels Into The Brain, where the author discusses MCP-1 (MCP means macrophage chemoattractant protein).

Vaccinated vs unvaccinated study

One type of study that would be a valid way of showing vaccines do or don’t cause autism compares autism rates in fully vaccinated and completely unvaccinated groups. It is probable that parents assume this type of study has been done, but in reality there has not been a large-scale study like this done by government health authorities and/or published in a science journal.

In the USA there have been 4 bills put before Congress over the years asking for their government to do this study, but none have passed. Our Australian government has said they would do this study, but then said they couldn’t do it, for some reason.

A pilot study of this type was published in 2017, and it found significantly more autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders in the vaccinated group:

Book by J.B. Handley
How to End the Autism Epidemic
In How to End the Autism Epidemic, Handley confronts and dismantles the most common lies about vaccines and autism. He then lays out, in detail, what the truth actually is: new published science links the aluminium adjuvant used in vaccines to immune activation events in the brains of infants, triggering autism; and there is a clear legal basis for the statement that vaccines cause autism, including previously undisclosed depositions of prominent autism scientists under oath.

Book by James Lyons-Weiler
The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism
To make this groundbreaking volume, Dr. James Lyons-Weiler combed through the past fifty years of published research on autism, exploring subjects such as genetic variation, mechanisms of neurotoxicity of metals and pesticides, and the central and combined roles of each in causing autism.

Article on World Mercury Project
New Animal Study Reveals Aluminum Adjuvants Can Impair Social Behavior
“To build on the team’s previous work, the current study investigates the effect of aluminium adjuvants on social behavior in mice. Anomalies in social interaction are a key characteristic of those with ASD.”
“However, almost 100% of the intramuscularly injected aluminum (as in vaccine adjuvants) is absorbed into the systemic circulation and travels to different sites in the body such as the brain, joints and the spleen where it accumulates and is retained for years post-vaccination.”

VaxXed: From Coverup To Catastrophe
In 2013, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism. The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism.
