Vaccines linked to neurological problems such as ADHD and OCD
Analyzing five years’ worth of private health insurance data on children ages 6-15, these scientists found that young people vaccinated in the previous three to 12 months were significantly more likely to be diagnosed with certain neuropsychiatric disorders than their non-vaccinated counterparts.
This new study, which raises important questions about whether over-vaccination may be triggering immune and neurological damage in a subset of vulnerable children — something parents of children with autism have been saying for years — was published in the peer-reviewed journal Frontiers in Psychiatry, Jan. 19, 2017.
It is often stated that correlation (in this case, vaccine administration in the previous 12 months and new diagnoses of brain disorders) does not necessarily mean causation – but a strong correlation may well mean causation. For how long will we ignore a smoking gun? That is the real question.
If certain vaccines or a combination of vaccines are actually triggering brain disorders, it is imperative to figure out which vaccines, or combination of vaccines, are the culprits and what risk factors may make some children more susceptible than others.
This comment by 3xMommo on Yale Daily News really does encapsulate the positive sentiment by those who want vaccines to be safe, rather than the standard rhetoric spun by the Vaccine industry:
“Of course, those of us with kids who have already suffered immune and neurological damage from vaccines are not surprised by this study. What is surprising it that it made it to print. The religious dogma that surrounds vaccines is amazing. While people will openly accept the fact that drugs can harm people and must be held to rigorous safety standards and constant policing, vaccines are held to a lower standard. They have never tested vaccinated vs. unvaccinated groups (which could easily be done, with say, the Amish). Vaccines are not tested against placebos, as are all other drugs. Rather than being tested against saline solutions (never happened), they have only been tested agains solutions of adjuvants alone. (Well, if the problem is the adjuvants, this is problematic.) And the line of thinking is that if one was good at one time, then the 72 (and climbing) they are currently recommending must also be great. I think the real question is: why are we ignoring the 13 CDC officials who are reporting scientific fraud (Dr. Thompson and the Spider group)? Why don’t we start by listening to them? And why don’t we call parents who have vaccinated their children and have suffered the consequences something other than “anti-vaxxer”? They are not anti-vaxxers, they vaccinated their children. They might be people like me who wish they had been told that the CDC is a for-profit entity that is largely funded by vaccines, and that the people coming up with the list are allowed to openly profit from their investments in the very vaccines they add to the list. That vaccines are not held to the same safety standards for testing as all other drugs on the market. That anyone who questions their safety is attacked, and any studies showing there might be actual harm are quashed. That vaccine reactions (like febrile seizures and the loss of speech) are routinely written off as “normal” and not reported. That doctors who do report these incidents fear repercussions. And that good people like Kennedy who are simply questioning whether we should be injecting our children with mercury (seems the answer is obvious) is treated as being unreasonable to ask. Is the dogma so sacred that we cannot truly enforce safety? That is all Kennedy is asking, and look how he is being treated. Dogma is a dangerous thing. If people really fear children losing the use of their limbs from Polio, why don’t they fear it from the side effects of vaccines (for example Transverse Myelitis or any of the other long lists of adverse reactions)? They are both bad. I suppose the assumption is that it never happens. But the truth is, it is just grossly underreported. More studies like these, please, Yale. More like this.”
We need to wake up to vaccine ‘side effects’, especially those that cause irreparable harm. As a collective consciousness, we must learn to have much more compassion for those children who are injured and support those parents who are asking the industry to be accountable, rather than dogmatic and dismissive of the harm they may be causing.
