I Am Not Anti-Vaccine.
I do not believe vaccines cause autism
I do believe more research is required before we dismiss them into the darkness.
I am a reasonable guy – asking questions.
I am also the Father of a handsome little man that received an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis in 2008 – at age 2 and a half. He’s now 11.
If you’re pro-vaccine and believe science has proven their safety – please read on – I come to you from a place of love and have humanity’s best interest at heart.
I have no problem looking at any situation and viewing it subjectively – regardless of my current view or belief. I am aware of it, at least, and I do my best to maintain it.
I’ll look at any situation, any information, or any compelling evidence that may offer a new perspective on my view. Including any information that counters the material in this post.
The truth is far more important than being right – especially when it concerns a public health crisis of monumental proportions.
What is Cognitive Dissonance?
Wikipedia defines it as:
In psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental discomfort(psychological stress) experienced by a person who simultaneously holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values. The occurrence of cognitive dissonance is consequence of a person’s performing an action that contradicts personal beliefs, ideals, and values; and also occurs when confronted with new information that contradicts said beliefs, ideals, and values.
Like me, if you’re one that believes the vaccine debate is far from over – I am sure you’ve been labelled an “Anti-Vaxxer.”
The Vaccines – The toxins in a couple of them – The CDC timetable in which they suggest injection into undeveloped human beings – the scheduled amount in the first 3 years and the environmental connection
I ask you – how does this imply anti-vaccine?
So please, the next time you encounter someone asking questions about the safety of vaccines – Do not immediately label them an anti-vaxxer. It does nothing but take the focus away from a discussion we should be having. Besides, there are extremely high odds the person you’re talking with is not anti-vaccination. (Although there are those rare cases…)
I find it interesting anytime a well-respected doctor, health care official, or well-meaning activist speaks out or asks questions about vaccine safety, the first response is something along the lines of “It’s already been settled – they are safe – scientists and doctors agree – it does not cause autism”
Yes, I know…most of us know this… it doesn’t cause autism –
But, according to numerous studies – there are high odds that the toxins in vaccines, when combined with other environmental elements, are a piece of the puzzle.
To start – here are
206 Abstracts on Autism Spectrum Disorders Research
What happens to doctors if they no longer feel comfortable providing some of these vaccinations?
Oh, that’s right – they are attacked, slandered, and called, “Whacky, a kook, and crazy.” Many of them suffer from the backlash and ultimately lose their practice, credibility, and stability in life – stemmed from doing what they thought was best. With studies on their side, no less.
One of the most impactful pieces of literature I came across is this:
Prager Vaccine Peer Review
released in January 2016
Here’s an excerpt, written by Dr. Russell Blaylock
1987 – 2015
In 1976, children received 10 vaccines before attending school. Today they will receive over 36 injections. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control assured parents that it was safe to not only give these vaccines but that they could be given at one time with complete safety. Is this true? Or are we being lied to on a grand scale?
The medical establishment has created a set of terms, which they use constantly to boost their egos and firm up their authority as the unique holders of medical wisdom–the mantra is “evidence-based medicine” as if everything outside their anointing touch is bogus and suspect. A careful examination of many of the accepted treatments reveals that most have little or no scientific “evidence-based” data to support it. One often repeated study found that almost 80% of medical practice had no scientific backing.
Most men of medicine recognize that some things are obvious without a placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized study. For example, there has never been such a study to see if smashing your finger with a hammer will be painful, but we accept it without such pristine evidence. The same is true with removing brain tumors or sewing up severe lacerations.
I find it interesting that there exist an incredible double standard when it comes to our evidence versus theirs. The proponents of vaccination safety can just say they are safe, without any supporting evidence what-so-ever, and it is to be accepted without question. They can announce that mercury is not only safe, but that it seems to actually increase the IQ, and we are to accept it. They can proclaim thimerosal safe to use in vaccines without their having ever been a single study on its safety in over 60 years of use, and we are to accept it.
Yet, let me, or anyone else, suggest that excessive vaccination can increase the risk of not only autism, but also schizophrenia and neurodegenerative diseases, and they will scream like banshees –Where is the evidence? Where is the evidence? When we produce study after study, they always proclaim them to be insufficient evidence or unacceptable studies. More often than not, they just completely ignore the evidence. This is despite the fact that we produce dozens or even hundreds of studies that not only demonstrate the link clinically and scientifically but also clearly show the mechanism by which the damage is being done —even on a molecular level. These include cell culture studies, mixed cell cultures, organotypic tissue studies, in vivo animal studies using multiple species and even human studies. To the defenders of vaccine safety—our evidence is never sufficient and, if we face reality—never will be.
~ Dr Russell Blaylock
Like me, I am sure you’re not opposed to vaccines as a whole – you’re wanting clear and concise studies performed/published that address all potential avenues. Using existing scientific studies as the platform for each, that clearly link specific ingredients in specific vaccines to significantly increase the risk of brain injury – more specifically, autism. With the ASD rates where they are today – this deserves that type of approach.
As of now – this has not been accomplished. I think it’s safe to assume that if extensive research was available – the opposing side wouldn’t be so prevalent, consistent, and visible as they are today.
This is a serious public health crisis and it deserves that much attention. It deserves extensive, meticulous research – as much as humanly possible.
I am reminded daily of this crisis, that’s increasing at an astronomical rate, not only to our country but our existence as a race.
My Son is that reminder.
If you are a parent of a child with autism – I love you and I salute you.
That being said – I have questions:
Lots of them.
Vaccines – how they fit in
It’s been branded into the minds of this society, as well as society’s across the globe (or the surface is you’re a flat earth person) that if a reasonable human is asking questions about the safety of a few vaccines and their ingredients (regardless of the information used or why) that they are an “Anti-Vaxxer.” The agenda for this is rampant within mainstream and social media platforms.
Right away – we have to step away from the real issues and defend derogatory slander, meaning Anti-vaccine…When we are not even talking about vaccines as a whole. This never seems to get through. How is this term even relevant to the discussion? It’s not.
A large majority of those asking questions about these vaccines are NOT ANTI-VACCINE. The majority also do not believe vaccines are solely responsible for autism.
I have a few friends/colleagues with similar views. I’m told anytime a discussion about vaccine safety comes up and they are not on the “They are safe. Case closed” side of things – they are labeled an anti-vaxxer, irresponsible, tinfoil hat guy, and so on. Is this rational behavior?
Is this fair?
No – of course not.
Tactics, intentionally placed into the minds of Americans (and the world) that all who question the safety of vaccines and the mighty throne of the Pharmaceutical Industry are, CraZY, kooks, Whackos, and Kool-aid drinkers.”
Why is this exactly?
Where is the good science that demonstrates children are healthier when repeatedly given vaccines that artificially hyper-stimulate inflammatory immune responses 50 times before age six? 40
Just how sick do highly vaccinated children in America have to get before government health officials re-evaluate the assumption that more and more vaccination equals better health?
Where is the credible scientific evidence that it is safe to give children amphetamines and anti-depressants with side effects that include suicidal thoughts and violent behavior, 41 or that children are healthier when they drink water full of fluoride, 42 and have teeth filled with mercury amalgams, 43 and when they eat genetically engineered and processed foods laced with pesticides, chemicals, hormones and antibiotics? 44 And why is government joining with the chemical industry and blocking the labelling of GMO food 45 so that Americans do not have the right to know and freedom to choose what they eat and feed their children?
All valid questions
But – it goes even further-
The immediate judgment, public humiliation, and discrediting of doctors speaking out is immediate and attacked hard from many angles. Ensuring the people see it. This bias is clear if you take any subjective view of media stories, news headlines, and many other publicized materials. Here are a few examples of what I mean: (Not all of these are vaccine-related – I just wanted to showcase that the mainstream news is anything but objective)
Like any important public issue – if the issue hits home for you or if you’re living with the aspects of it (Such as a Son or Daughter diagnosed within the ASD spectrum) it becomes personal. It can often become a lifelong pursuit if you feel strongly enough about it. The largest obstacle to overcome in many of these pursuits is to not become strangled by those who ridicule, criticize, and condemn you because they are too stuck in their ways to give any research a look. If it doesn’t support their beliefs, regardless of how compelling the evidence is, it’s nearly impossible to sway the other side to even give you a chance to speak and present any information.
This is frightening to me.
We sometimes forget about history. We sometimes forget the manipulation that occurs daily, on an incredibly large scale, across this country. Not just in healthcare either – this is something that spreads far beyond this topic. This manipulative information has been occurring for well over a century in many different forms.
I am not suggesting I know the truth. (The other side does that)
I am not suggesting anything other than the discussion on vaccines is not over.
What is a Neurological disorder?
A neurological disorder is any disorder of the nervous system.
What causes a neurological disorder?
Although the brain and spinal cord are surrounded by tough membranes, enclosed in the bones of the skull and spinal vertebrae, and chemically isolated by the so-called blood–brain barrier – they are very susceptible if compromised. Nerves tend to lie deep under the skin but can still become exposed to damage. Individual neurons, and the neural networks and nerves into which they form, are susceptible to electrochemical and structural disruption.
Here is a well-presented and informative piece on electrochemical and structural disruption:
Disrupted or Compromised by what?
This is where things get interesting.
To speed things along – I thought I’d reference a post similar to this one, that I published here on this blog on April 21, 2015.
The link just above this text is a post I wrote in April 2015 that addresses this issue as well. Check it out for a warm-up on the GMO post that’s coming down the pipes.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) has seen a 600% increase since 1970 – According to Autismspeaks.org blog.
- 1970 – 1 in 10,000
- 1975 – 1 in 5,000
- 1985 – 1 in 2,500
- 1995 – 1 in 500
- 2001 – 1 in 250
- 2004 – 1 in 166
- 2007 – 1 in 150
- 2009 – 1 in 110
- 2014 – 1 in 68
These numbers are relatively the same throughout any graph I found but there are slight differences too. The differences I am referring to are subtle – such as the number of cases being 2500-5000 more in each direction in terms of the year being documented – going in 5-year increments. Either way – the rise in diagnosed cases is the same.
Through much of this, I highly recommend you check out the links provided – as they will give you a much greater understanding and offer you incite you may be curious about.
The Vaccine Safety Commission was formed by concerned scientists, doctors, journalists, and parents. There are too many unanswered questions about the safety of the United States Vaccine Program, and every American citizen deserves to know the truth. We provide the following information for all concerned citizens:
The first piece of information they provide is a list of 50 studies. The significance of these specific studies is this:
- The American Academy of Pediatrics sent a letter on February 7, 2017, to President Trump that included a study from a whistleblower scientist at CDC, a wanted felon, and a paper showing that vaccines cause neurological tics. The AAP is a trade union for Pediatricians, who make the majority of their revenues from vaccines.
- 50 peer-reviewed, published studies from scientists all over the world that raise grave concerns about the impact vaccines are having on human health. These studies are never cited by the U.S. media, and yet the majority have been published since 2010. These studies alone clearly and unequivocally support the importance of taking a closer look at vaccine safety.This story first brought to my attention by:
- None of these studies were sent to President Trump by the AAP.
The pineal gland
The Pineal Gland is a small endocrine gland centrally located between the two hemispheres of the brain and has cellular features that resemble the human retina.
The main (biological) function of the pineal gland is its role in producing the hormone melatonin from serotonin. Melatonin is essential in maintaining a healthy sleep/awake and seasonal cycles.
These are a few of the main features of the pineal gland. If you’d like to know more visit –
Just over 40 years ago, the rate of ASDs was sitting at 1 in 5000.
Fast forward to 2014:
1 in 68.
600% increase in less than half a century.
Some studies suggest a greater awareness has inflated the cases – parental age has been considered a factor as well. Given these factors, it still does not add up and pacify that 600% increase. In fact, I just read an article titled “Autism increase mystery solved: No, it’s not vaccines, GMOs glyphosate – or organic foods.” The author states the cause for the rise in cases of ASD are – “Almost certainly, nothing. Most of the rise in autism is a statistical mirage.” I read the entire article. The mystery is still alive for me. If you’d like to read for yourself –

My Why and Reason
I am not a professional in the medical field.
I do not have a degree in anything that I can hold up and affirm to you that I am worthy to write this.
My research consists of scouring the web for reputable studies and/or articles and living this life with my son, diagnosed with ASD at 3 – but it now 11.
My boy started showing the warning signs of autism around 18 -24 months.
The signs were not severe or consistent but they were definitely visible. Progressively the signs became more frequent. By age 4– his verbal skills remained non-existent. At the most he would say one, maybe two words at a time. That’s it. Processing of information such as – “Go get that red ball” would not register with him. He might, on occasion, point at the ball. There were many situations like this. I don’t want to get into my son’s specifics but I did want to mention a few.
Now, my take on this. Being in the world, reading other parents stories, reading many articles – I have an endless war going on in my mind. Just recently, within the past few months, one army has surrounded their enemy camp and is close to forcing a surrender. Who is this nearly victorious army, you ask?
Army of – The Pineal gland.
Of course – it’s not that simple. I realize that.
Why the Pineal gland?
Let’s take a deeper look at what roles and responsibilities our little, pine cone-shaped friend has in terms of perception, focus, natural flow, and maintaining a balanced life.
As I stated above, the pineal gland is referred to as “The third eye.”
The pineal gland synthesises and secretes melatonin.
Melatonin controls our sleep/ awake cycles.
During these cycles when melatonin is doing its work – it delivers sulfate to the neurons in our brain.
According to many researchers – neurological brain disorders have a common root – they all originate with a lack of sulfate to the brain. (Sulfate is the oxidized form of sulfur.)
Here are a few examples/studies that discuss this common root:
The pineal gland is vulnerable to heavy metals, such as aluminum, due to its location in the brain.
Aluminum and mercury, which are found in many vaccines) disrupt the pineal gland’s ability to manufacture sulfate.
Sulfate disruption leads to a reduced melatonin level.
The pineal gland is not shielded by the blood-brain barrier that protects the 3 surrounding ventricles. As shown in the image above.
What does this mean?
It means – A fully operational pineal gland, with no outer intrusiveness, synthesizes sulfate that is stimulated by natural sunlight.
Melatonin then delivers it to the brain.
Aluminum and mercury disrupt this cycle.
A disrupted cycle along with calcification of the gland and we have a serious problem:
We have a biological and spiritual disconnection.
The above rundown of the metals, the brain, and secretions in the brain is an extremely summarized nutshell of the whole thing.
The literature, research, and studies (all available online) clearly show this discussion is far from over – contrary to what BigPharma and Vaccine advocates tell you (as they attack you) if you discuss it with them.
This is a 2-part post. The next part will focus mainly on the environmental aspect and what many researchers are finding in the Gut-To-Brain discussion.
Do you still believe these “numerous studies” have concluded there is no link between vaccines, neurological damage, and/or autism?
If you made it this far – thank you.
Much Love, My Friends.
