Study Shows Evidence of Inflammatory Cells Loaded with Aluminum Crossing the Blood-Brain Barrier and Meningeal Membranes

(November 27, 2017) Staffordshire, UK — A new study published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology provides the strongest indication yet that aluminum is an etiological agent in autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to researchers at Keele University in England.

The study used transversely heated graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry to measure, for the first time, the aluminum content of brain tissue from five donors who had died with diagnoses of ASD. The results showed the donors to have had some of the highest values of aluminum yet measured in human brain tissue.

The mean (standard deviation) aluminum content across all five individuals for each lobe were 3.82(5.42), 2.30(2.00), 2.79(4.05) and 3.82(5.17) mg/g dry wt. for the occipital, frontal, temporal and parietal lobes respectively. Previous measurements of 60 brains from humans not diagnosed with ASD showed an average content of 1 mg/g dry wt. of brain tissue.

“One has to wonder why aluminum in the occipital lobe of a 15-year-old boy with autism would be a value that is at least 10 times higher than what might be considered acceptable for an elderly adult?” said Christopher Exley PhD, Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry and author of the study. Another ground-breaking study by Exley and his team, published earlier in the year, identified similarly high levels of aluminum in the brains of individuals who died of familial Alzheimer’s disease.

While the aluminum content of each of the five brains was extraordinarily high, it was the location of the aluminum in the brain tissue that served as the standout observation. The majority of aluminum was identified inside non-neuronal cells including microglia and astrocytes. Aluminum was also found in lymphocytes in the meninges and in similar inflammatory cells in the vasculature. According to the researchers, there was clear evidence of inflammatory cells heavily loaded with aluminum entering the brain via the meningeal membranes and the blood-brain-barrier.

Pharma Dogs Hunt Down Vaccine Disruptors in California

Original here: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/11/28/medical-exemptions-for-vaccination.aspx?

By Dr. Mercola

“Anti-Vaxxers Have Found a Way Around California’s Strict New Immunization Law. They Need to Be Stopped.” This hostile and derogatory headline was published in the Los Angeles Times November 8.1 The “loophole” they’re referring to is the use of medical vaccine exemptions written by physicians.

According to this editorial, no more than 3 percent of children “should reasonably” qualify for a medical exemption to avoid vaccination, yet parents of more than 10 percent of school-aged children enrolled at 58 California schools in the fall of 2016 had obtained a medical exemption written by a physician, allowing their children to attend school without every dose of every state-mandated vaccine.

“The new law — SB 2772 — pushed up the statewide immunization numbers to a safe level overall. But dozens of schools have reported suspiciously high numbers of medical exemptions that, if left unchecked, could endanger their communities,”the LA Times editorial board writes.

Medical Exemptions in California Have Tripled Since the Personal Belief Exemption Was Eliminated in 2015

On June 29, 2015, California enacted SB 277, which eliminated the legal right for parents to file a personal belief exemption to vaccination for religious and conscientious beliefs so their unvaccinated or partially vaccinated children can attend school. Now, school-aged children in California must get nearly three dozen doses of 10 federally recommended and state-mandated vaccines or forgo their right to be educated in a public or private school.

The alternative is for parents to homeschool their children — an option that is simply impossible for many single parents or families in which both parents work. The article goes on to state:

“[T]he numbers of medical exemptions statewide didn’t just rise after SB 277 took effect, they tripled, with a few schools reporting exemptions from as many as a quarter of their students. Given what health experts say about the expected rate of medical exemptions, that’s just not credible. Are there some physicians who are, for either ideological or financial reasons, helping parents avoid vaccinating their healthy kids?” 

California Doctors in the Crosshairs

The authors note there have been “examples of a few doctors’ offices that advertise medical exemption evaluations for a fee,” and that these doctors are providing medical exemptions for health conditions that are not included in the narrow list of contraindications to vaccination defined by federal health officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).3

By and large, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), which develops CDC vaccine policy guidelines, limits medical exemptions to severe allergic reactions to previous vaccinations and rare severe immunodeficiencies.

According to the LA Times, some children have received medical exemptions for autoimmune disorders, such as eczema, asthma and diabetes, which federal health officials do not consider a vaccine contraindication. Under current law school officials must accept a medical vaccine exemption form signed by a licensed physician.

“The only real enforcement mechanism against doctors circumventing the vaccination requirement is through the Medical Board of California,” the LA Times noted, meaning the only way under current law that the state can limit medical exemptions is for the state medical board to hunt down and punish doctors who think for themselves and stray beyond the CDC’s narrow contraindication guidelines if they believe a child’s health will be endangered by vaccination.

Trump Drains the Swamp to Make Room for More Pharma Gold

Original here: http://www.ageofautism.com/2017/11/trump-drains-the-swamp-to-make-room-for-more-pharma-gold.html

President Trump promised to “drain the swamp” during his campaign. His hard talk about pharmaceutical influence on our lives was a strong pull for many within the autism community from conservatives, to moderates to staunch liberals. Many held their noses and voted for Trump with a longing for true help and change for this generation of kids and the future.

The nominee for HHS secretary is Alex Azar, former top executive with Eli Lilly, the creator and manufacturer of Thimerosal. Thimerosal. Thimerosal: the  mercury-based preservative used in vaccinations and the launching pad for autism.   Azar was also in HHS under President George W. Bush.   The good news is that his orientation will be a snap. He already knows how to find the bathroom and supply closet.

Even the mainstream media sees the significance of appointing a captain of industry to run a government organization as large as HHS.   From the NY Times:

President Trump, who has repeatedly assailed pharmaceutical companies for the high cost of prescription medications in the United States, nominated on Monday a former executive of one of the nation’s largest drug companies to be secretary of health and human services, which has responsibility for regulating the pharmaceutical industry.

I’m reminded of the lyric from the song “The Circle Game.”

And the seasons, they go round and round and the painted ponies go up and down.
We’re captives on the carousel of time.
We can’t return. We can only look.
Behind from where we came.
And go round and round and round in the circle game.

How big should adult vaccines be?

By Levi Quackenboss

We’re all super excited about the recent media blitz for adult vaccinations over here at LQ headquarters. It’s about time! What’s the point in being a pro-vaccine warrior when your entire front line is made of babies?

Nothing spells the end of vaccine injury denialism like 20% of adults developing out-of-the-blue food allergies, epilepsy, Type 1 diabetes and “early onset” Alzheimers.

In an effort to be as helpful as possible, though, I’d like to point out that even adults who keep up with their current schedule aren’t getting vaccinated enough. It’s only fair that we adjust vaccine dosing to keep the ingredients proportionate to each patient’s weight, just as we do for children’s antibiotic or pain reliever.

Since the 2005 piece in the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association about the increased dangers of vaccinating dogs with lower body weights didn’t wake anyone up, then the least we can do is raise the vaccine quota for grownups.

Let’s start with scary influenza. The Flulaval vaccine is approved for 6 month old babies who, on average, weigh 16 pounds, but it’s also approved for adults. The wonderful thing about Flulaval is that not only has the FDA approved it for children up to eight years old, but they got approval for two full doses at least four weeks apart. So good you give it twice.

Since the average American woman weighs 166 pounds, we’re going to need every adult female to get 20 Flulaval shots this season. Feel free to take them in 2 sets of 10, spaced 4 weeks apart. You will be taking in 20 times the amount of formaldehyde, known to cause cancer, and 20 times the amount of polysorbate 80, which opens the blood brain barrier to bacteria, viruses (including the four strains of the flu in the vaccine), and of course, the half milligram of mercury that comes in four full Flulaval vials.

I’m sure you understand that this is only fair. If 2 Flulaval are great for a baby, 20 are even better for you. Together we can fight the flu, and your role in taking 20 flu vaccines every September is critical in reaching our goal.
