On Vaccines, Adjuvants and Autoimmunity   By Guest Columnist Christina England - Nov 21, 2017  

Posted at: http://info.cmsri.org/the-driven-researcher-blog/on-vaccines-adjuvants-and-autoimmunity   Add one more item to the growing stack of published medical literature linking vaccines to the current explosion of autoimmune diseases from skin afflictions to neurological disorders. A paper published in October 2015, the journal Pharmacological Research is an international team of immunologists’ roundup of current findings on vaccine-induced disease -- and their conclusions are in sharp contrast to public health’s “safe and effective” mantra that denies any such connection.  

Immunologists Survey the Research and it’s not Reassuring  

(The paper’s abstract and the following very important graph shows some of the vaccine-induced autoimmune disorders. Click on the following link to see a clearer image: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1043661815001711     (Image at: https://ars.els-cdn.com/content/image/1-s2.0-S1043661815001711-fx1.jpg)   “Vaccines and autoimmunity are linked fields,” state the authors led by Luísa Eça Guimarães of the Zabludowicz Center for Autoimmune Diseases in Tel-Hashomer, Israel. Just as natural infections can sometimes induce autoimmune disease, so can vaccination induce autoimmunity that “may be severe and fatal.”  

NIH and the CDC are in Deep Denial About the Provable Adverse Effects of Their Beloved Vaccines  

Autoimmunity can manifest acutely, as encephalitis for example, or in a wide range of disfiguring and debilitating immune-mediated illnesses from alopecia to multiple sclerosis. These are soaring globally and together affect as many as one in five Americans today. Officials like those at the National Institutes for Health and the Centers for Disease Control claim some mysterious unidentified “environmental” factors must be responsible for the epidemic, but they obstinately refuse to look at the ever-increasing schedule of injected drugs that target the immune system.  

Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (ASIA)  

In the paper, the immunologists review current research and case studies of vaccine-induced autoimmunity in light of the new the concept of the Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (ASIA) introduced by leading immunologist Yehuda Shoenfeld, MD in 2011. The ASIA model explains adverse events that have been linked to vaccination since it began according to new understandings of the mechanisms by which vaccine ingredients called adjuvants take effect. Adjuvants are designed to stimulate the immune system but in some individuals can trigger a cascade of immune reactions and symptoms (ASIA) that can eventually manifest as overt autoimmune disease.  

Aluminum's Effect as a Vaccine Adjuvant  

The paper identifies three documented risks associated with the most common vaccine adjuvant, the neurotoxic (and now autoimmune-inducing) metal aluminum: 1) Aluminum persists in the body for years; 2) Aluminum can “trigger pathological immune responses” and 3) Aluminum can “pass through the blood brain barrier [BBB] into the central nervous system [CNS] where it can trigger immune-inflammatory processes, resulting in brain inflammation and long-term neural dysfunction.”  

Given aluminum’s well-established neurotoxicity and the increasing schedule of aluminum-containing vaccines for children, this should be terrifying. “Aluminum compounds persist for up to 8-11 years post vaccination in the human body,” say the immunologists. “This fact, combined with repeated exposure may account for a hyper activation of the immune system and subsequent chronic inflammation.”  

Bad as that all sounds, they also note that vaccination has been experimentally demonstrated to unleash the immune system’s production of autoantibodies – immune cells mistakenly directed at their host’s cells rather than invaders. “It has been widely demonstrated that autoantibodies can develop years before the manifestation of a full-blown autoimmune disease,” say the immunologists.  

Vaccine Adverse Reaction Reports  

Only a fraction of adverse events are reported and no long-term studies have ever been done to compare autoimmune disease in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated individuals or looked at the impact of the full schedule of vaccines on autoimmunity so it is a wonder that the immunologists still assert the general safety of some vaccines. Especially given what they are just learning about others -- like the totally unexpected but now indisputable link between the H1N1 Pandemrix (Glaxo) swine flu vaccine used in 2009 and a horrifying epidemic of narcolepsy among children who received the vaccine and will be disabled for life. How many cases of historical narcolepsy were caused by previous vaccines? No one knows.  

The immunologists show no sympathy for the HPV vaccine against human papilloma virus (Merck’s Gardasil and Glaxo’s Cervarix) however, though it is universally recommended and frequently mandated to girls (and boys) as young as nine to prevent rare adult cervical and anal cancers. “Death rate from cervical cancer in 9-20-year-old girls is zero and long-term benefits are yet to be proven,” say the immunologists. They cite unusually high adverse event reports with the vaccine, including cases of many autoimmune diseases such as paralyzing Guillain Barre syndrome, multiple sclerosis and transverse myelitis and state that “short-term risks to healthy subjects can prove to pose a heavier burden than cervical cancer.”  

What This Means  

Future studies must be “better designed,” the paper concludes. Having true placebos rather than comparing one adjuvanted vaccine to another would be a start. And studies should follow recipients for many years rather than the usual month or two and large epidemiological studies of vaccines’ impact on autoimmune disease should be undertaken, the researchers add.  

Many parents and even many doctors may be surprised that such studies have never actually been done already, particularly for immune system diseases that are inexplicably soaring.  

But even more disturbing than these admissions from top immunologists is the paper’s unintended revelation of just how little is known about how vaccines impact the immune system. It turns out the top doctors don’t have a clue who is really in danger of vaccine injury or why. The study of ASIA and these adjuvant effects is just beginning to bring parts of the whole vaccine/autoimmunity phenomenon into focus. And what is most clear is not at all reassuring.          

Dirty Vaccines: New Study Reveals Prevalence of Contaminants  

By Guest Columnist Celeste McGovern  

In Addition to Containing Sublethal Amounts of two Toxic Metals (Mercury or Aluminum - Which are Supposed to be in Most Vaccines) Sublethal Amounts of Many Other Toxic Metals Have Been Found Contaminating Unregulated Vaccines  Every Human Vaccine Tested Was Contaminated by Unsafe Levels of Metals and Debris  

Researchers examining 44 samples of 30 different vaccines found dangerous contaminants, including red blood cells in one vaccine and metal toxicants in every single sample tested – except in one animal vaccine.   Using extremely sensitive new technologies not used in vaccine manufacturing, Italian scientists reported they were “baffled” by their discoveries which included single particles and aggregates of organic debris including red cells of human or possibly animal origin and metals including lead, tungsten, gold, and chromium, that have been linked to autoimmune disease and leukemia.  

In the study, published recently in the International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination, the researchers led by Antonietta Gatti, of the National Council of Research of Italy and the Scientific Director of Nanodiagnostics, say their results “show the presence of micro- and nano-sized particulate matter composed of inorganic elements in vaccine samples” not declared in the products’ ingredients lists.  

Lead particles were found in the cervical cancer vaccines, Gardasil (Merck) and Cervarix (GlaxoSmithKline), for example, and in the seasonal flu vaccine Aggripal manufactured by Novartis as well as in the Meningetec (Pfizer) vaccine meant to protect against meningitis C.  

Samples of an infant vaccine called Infarix Hexa (against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, poliomyelitis and haemophilus influenzae type B) manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline/GSK was found to contain stainless steel, tungsten and a gold-zinc aggregate.   Other metal contaminants included platinum, silver, bismuth, iron, and chromium. Chromium (alone or in alloy with iron and nickel) was identified in 25 of the human vaccines from Italy and France that were tested.  

(GSK’s) Fluarix vaccine for children three years and older contained 11 metals and aggregates of metals. Similar aggregates to those identified in the vaccines have been shown to be prevalent in cases of leukemia, the researchers noted.   Many of the vaccines contained iron and iron alloys which, according to the researchers, “can corrode and the corrosion products exert a toxicity affecting the tissues”.  

The researchers supply an image of an area in a drop of (Sanofi Pasteur MSD’s) Repevax (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio) vaccine “where the morphology of red cells – we cannot tell whether they are human or animal- is clearly visible” along with the presence of “debris” composed of aluminum, bromine, silicon, potassium and titanium.  

Feligen, the only veterinary vaccine tested in the 44 total vaccines sampled, proved to be the only sample free from inorganic contamination.  

The investigation revealed aluminum and sodium chloride, the usual component of saline, as was expected, because they are named ingredients of most vaccines. Using a Field Emission Gun Environmental Electron Scanning Microscope, the researchers produced photos of this aluminum salt which formed white crystalline branches similar to frost on a windowpane on the top of the droplets of vaccine liquid. A German-made vaccine against allergies produced a layer of inorganic salts so thick that the researchers could not penetrate the drop to detect other particulate contaminants.  

Aluminum has a documented neurotoxicity all by itself.

The French veterinary vaccines exclude it for this reason. The human ones don’t. The researchers express concern about synergy of multiple toxins added to this known neurotoxin. “It is a well-known fact in toxicology that contaminants exert a mutual, synergic effect, and as the number of contaminants increases, the effects grow less and less predictable. The more so when some substances are unknown.” “The quantity of foreign bodies detected and, in some cases, their unusual chemical compositions baffled us,” the researchers note. “In most circumstances, the combinations detected are very odd as they have no technical use, cannot be found in any material handbook and look like the result of the random formation occurring, for example, when waste is burnt. In any case, whatever their origin, they should not be present in any injectable medicament, let alone in vaccines, more in particular those meant for infants.”  

Undesirable Impact  

The study explains that these foreign injected impurities may explain a vast array of apparently unrelated adverse events associated with vaccination from headaches and seizures to fatigue, muscle pain, paralysis and sudden infant death syndrome. More likely than not, they speculate, vaccine contaminants will “have a more serious impact on very small organisms like those of children.”  

Once inside a body, foreign material in a vaccine shot, whether it is meant to be there as in the case of aluminum, or not, in the case of contaminants, launches the formidable immune system into action.   As with anything small and foreign, its reaction to vaccine ingredients is potent, poorly understood, unpredictable, and as the Italian researchers say, may be “undesirable.”

The immune system may dispatch an army of large white blood cells called macrophages to engulf the foreign bodies and contain them in swellings and granulomas at the injection site. But if the contaminants are swept away in the blood’s circulation to any distant site or organ including the microbiota, which regulate numerous functions including the immune system, their effect could be felt long after they covertly entered the body.   In some cases, the immune system my initiate an inflammatory assault against what it perceives as invader. This may include the launch of a host of players called cytokines. Some of these chemical messengers like interleukin-6 are incriminated in autism.  

Because these contaminants may persist in the body and stimulate the immune system, they may induce chronic inflammation and can manifest as autoimmune diseases when the immune system turns on its host’s own cells as in multiple sclerosis or type 1 diabetes.   It’s also been shown that the contaminants found in the vaccines can enter cell nuclei and interact with DNA, the researchers note. No one knows what that can do.  

Dark History  

Vaccines have a long and sordid history of contamination. In 1955 batches of polio vaccine containing live polio virus infected and paralyzed hundreds of children. The tragedy became known as the Cutter Incident for the laboratory where the vaccines had passed safety tests with flying colors.   But there are dozens of other “incidents” which would better be called acts of criminal negligence, including: • The polio vaccine doled out between 1955 and 1963 was contaminated with simian virus 40 (SV40) from monkey kidney cells used to produce the vaccine. It’s been linked to the growing epidemic of cancer.

• In 2007, Merck & Company, Inc. recalled 1.2 million doses of Hib vaccines due to contamination with bacteria called cereus, a potentially lethal food-poisoning bug.

• In 2009, more than 40,000 doses of a meningitis C vaccine for babies were withdrawn from the British market when they were found to be contaminated with blood-poisoning bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus.

• In 2010, deep sequence analysis of eight different live attenuated virus vaccines revealed unexpected viral sequences in three of them: retrovirus avian leukosis was found in a measles vaccine, a virus similar to simian retrovirus was identified in (Merck’s) Rotateq anti-diarrhea vaccine developed by CDC consultant Paul Offit, and the entire genome sequence of porcine cirovirus1 was found in Rotarix (Glaxo) leading the FDA to suspend the rotavirus vaccine.

• In 2014, The US Food and Drug Administration GlaxoSmithKline to review the manufacturing operation of its flu vaccine when it found microbiological contamination of products purporting to be sterile.

• In 2013, Merck & Company, Inc. recalled one batch of Gardasil when glass particles were discovered in several phials.

• Recently it was reported that Sanofi Pasteur refused to recall its ActHIB vaccine for babies, even though it knew it was contaminated with glass shards.

The FDA didn’t object.  

There are dozens of these cases, and even if vaccine manufacturers are issued multiple “warnings” action is rarely ever taken to clean the vaccine manufacture process. Since pharmaceutical companies have blanket indemnity from lawsuits for faulty vaccines, there is no incentive for them to clean up their act.  

Clear and Present Danger  

The study investigators conclude that the vaccine contamination they found is likely accidental. “Our hypothesis is that this contamination is unintentional, since it is probably due to polluted components or procedures of industrial processes (e.g. filtrations) used to produce vaccines, not investigated and not detected by the producers”.  

Discussion about why pharmaceutical companies don’t produce clean vaccines is one thing. But the reality of vaccines as they are now is another. It doesn’t change what is being injected into millions of people today. Dangerous unintended toxins are in every one of the vaccines tested in this investigation, except one for cats.   This research doesn’t just show that vaccines are full of crud that top scientists can’t even define.

It makes a mockery of health oversight agencies like the FDA and CDC and their lies that vaccines undergo adequate safety checks and risk assessment.   It doesn’t merely reveal that the long-term consequences of vaccinating cannot even be assessed. If anti-cancer vaccines like Gardasil and Cervarix contain cancer-causing aggregates of toxic metals, their use as a weapon against a cancer a girl has zero chance of getting before age 21 is not just useless. It is egregious abuse.   Now, every vaccine’s claims to saving lives must be weighed against its risks of causing cancer, neurodevelopmental disease, autoimmune disease and every other immune-mediated “mystery” disorder now epidemic and soaring.   The results of these investigations not only negate every assertion that vaccines are “safe and effective”, but they confirm that they are actually a clear and present danger.

Important Quotes About America’s Over-vaccination Schedules  

(In spite of the observations of aluminum neurotoxicity)” children continue regularly to be exposed to much higher levels of Al adjuvants than adults, via routine childhood vaccination programmes).” -- Christopher Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic  

“Aluminum (Al) is highly neurotoxic and has been shown to impair both prenatal and postnatal brain development in humans and experimental animals. In addition to its neurotoxic properties, Al is a potent stimulator of the immune system, which is the very reason why it is used as an adjuvant. Given this, it is somewhat surprising to find that in spite of over 80 years of use, the safety of Al adjuvants continues to rest on assumptions (of safety) rather than scientific evidence.” -- Christopher Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic  

“[T]he existing data (or lack thereof) raise questions on whether the current vaccines aimed at pediatric populations can be accepted as having adequate safety profiles. … a more rigorous evaluation of potential vaccine-related adverse health impacts in pediatric populations … is urgently needed.” -- Christopher Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic  

“During critical periods in brain development, even very small immune challenges can result in permanent harmful changes in brain and immune system functions. Experimentation has shown that even a single hepatitis B vaccine administered to a newborn primate can cause significant developmental delays in suckling responses required for survival.” -- Christopher Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic  

“During prenatal and postnatal development the brain is extremely vulnerable to neurotoxic insults.  Not only are these highly sensitive periods of rapid brain development but also, the blood-brain barrier is incomplete and thus more permeable to toxic substances during this time.” -- Christopher Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic  

“[T]he existing data (or lack thereof) raise questions on whether the current vaccines aimed at pediatric populations can be accepted as having adequate safety profiles. … a more rigorous evaluation of potential vaccine-related adverse health impacts in pediatric populations … is urgently needed.” -- Christopher Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic

• VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe (The film they don’t want you to see) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpQyYTs5LTg   “We already know that the aluminium content of brain tissue in late-onset or sporadic Alzheimer’s disease is significantly higher than is found in age-matched controls. So, individuals who develop Alzheimer’s disease in their late sixties and older also accumulate more aluminium in their brain tissue than individuals of the same age without the disease.   “Even higher levels of aluminium have been found in the brains of individuals, diagnosed with an early-onset form of sporadic (usually late onset) Alzheimer’s disease, who have experienced an unusually high exposure to aluminium through the environment (e.g. Camelford) or through their workplace. This means that Alzheimer’s disease has a much earlier age of onset, for example, fifties or early sixties, in individuals who have been exposed to unusually high levels of aluminium in their everyday lives.” – Christopher Exley, PhD  

“Prior to the mercury phase-out (pre-2000), babies received 3,925 micrograms (mcg) of aluminum in their first year-and-a-half of life. After pneumococcal and hepatitis A vaccines were added to the immunization schedule, babies began receiving 4,925 mcg of aluminum during the same age period—a 25% increase. In 2011, CDC recommended that pregnant women receive a pertussis vaccine (Tdap), which also contains aluminum. Studies show that aluminum crosses the placenta and accumulates in fetal tissue. Thus, millions of babies in utero, infants, and young children were injected with, and continue to receive, unnaturally high doses of neurotoxic substances—mercury and aluminum—long after unsuspecting parents were led to believe that vaccines were purified and made safe.” – Neil Z. Miller  

“Toxic metals such as aluminum do not belong in prophylactic medications administered to children, teenagers, or adults. Vaccines are normally recommended for healthy people, so safety (and efficacy) standards must be impeccable. Parents, especially, should not be compelled to permit their loved ones to receive multiple injections of toxic metals that could increase their risk of neurodevelopmental and autoimmune ailments.” – Neil Z. Miller   The Silent Epidemic: The Untold Story of Vaccines - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1m3TjokVU4

“The collective evidence strongly suggests that Thimerosal exposure is associated with adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes.” ‑ Jose G Dorea – Jan 2017  

“The majority of studies that authorities point to as proof that vaccines do not cause autism have been published in a journal called Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics. As we know, the AAP is a trade union for pediatricians. (The American Academy of Pediatrics derives a majority of its outside contributions - estimated at more than $25 million per year - from pharmaceutical companies who make vaccines. The pediatricians that the AAP represents derive the majority of their annual revenues from the administration of vaccines to their pediatric patients.) -- J.B. Handley  

“Public trust in professed authoritative sources of information about vaccine safety has evaporated because the ‘authoritative’ government and many non-government organizations have consistently misrepresented the vaccine safety data.” ‑ Vera Sharav, MD  

"It should be of concern that the effect of routine vaccinations on all-cause mortality was not tested in randomized trials. All currently available evidence suggests that DTP vaccine may kill more children (from other causes) than it saves from diphtheria, tetanus or pertussis. Though a vaccine may protect children against the target disease it may simultaneously increase susceptibility to unrelated infections." — Dr. Peter Aaby
