The Vaccine-Autism Link Confirmed

Naturopathic Doctors have been warning parents about exposure to mercury in vaccines and amalgam fillings, and their effect on brain development and neurological function for years. I have also previously blogged about it, which you can read here. Finally the truth is being revealed about the detrimental effects of mercury on the body. This is the most recent study, published today, in the Journal of the Neurological Sciences.
At LTP Natural Medical Center a cornerstone of our treatment strategy is to test for, and then detoxify the body from heavy metals like mercury. The good news is that we have the tools to reduce and prevent the damaging effects of mercury, using safe and effective treatments that remove heavy metals from the body naturally, and without the use of IV therapies.

Hidden CDC Data Confirms Vaccine-Autism Link

WASHINGTON, DC – A newly published study in the Journal of the
Neurological Sciences,[1][1] the official journal of the World
Federation of Neurology,[2][2] links mercury from the Thimerosal in
vaccines with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

This study represents six years worth of effort by independent
researchers to gain access to hidden US Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC) data in the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD). In
2003, the Government Reform Committee of the US House of
Representatives asserted, “(a)ccess by independent researchers to the
Vaccine Safety Datalink database is needed for independent replication
and validation of CDC studies regarding exposure of infants to
mercury-containing vaccines and autism.”

Nonetheless, this new analysis of some of the data in the carefully
guarded VSD database, documenting the mercury poisoning of a
generation of American children, would never have been possible
without the intervention of Congressional leaders, parent autism
advocacy groups, and legal experts. Ironically, only a few
independent researchers have gained even this limited level of
restricted access to the VSD database, despite the fact that the VSD
Project is funded by hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.

The new study, led by Dr. Heather Young, Ph.D., a professor of
epidemiology at the George Washington University School of Public
Health and Health Services, examined the CDC-supplied medical
vaccination records from the VSD of 278,624 children, born from 1990
through 1996.

This study calculated the average mercury exposure children incurred
from routine childhood Thimerosal-containing vaccines, by year of
birth, during their first year of life. After calculating average
mercury exposure by year of birth, the study then estimated the
prevalence rates of various medical diagnoses for children born in
each of the years examined.

The prevalence rate of autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders
correlated with the average mercury exposure children received:
increasing/decreasing levels of mercury exposure from routine
childhood Thimerosal-containing vaccines resulted in corresponding
trends in prevalence rates of these diagnoses. By contrast, medical
outcomes presumed to be unrelated to mercury exposure did not
correlate with the average levels of mercury exposure from routine
childhood Thimerosal-containing vaccines.

Depending upon the specific neurodevelopmental disorder examined
(autism, autism spectrum disorder, tics, emotional disturbance,
attention deficit disorder-hyperactivity disorder, and
developmental/learning disorder), the observed overall risk of autism
and other neurodevelopmental disorders was significantly higher (about
2- to 6- fold) following an additional 100 micrograms of mercury
exposure. For autism alone, the overall risk was about 2.5-fold
higher following an additional 100 micrograms of mercury exposure.

These results demonstrate that the suspicions of those serving on the
Government Reform Committee were correct: “…(t)o date, studies
conducted or funded by the CDC that purportedly dispute any
correlation between autism and vaccine injury have been of poor
design, under-powered, and fatally flawed. The CDC’s rush to support
and promote such research is reflective of a philosophical conflict in
looking fairly at emerging theories and clinical data related to
adverse reactions from vaccinations.”
