erano soggetti a contrarre la
polio paralitica in misura
crescente rispetto a coloro che
vaccinati per questa malattia.
Durante l'epidemia di
polio in Minnesota, nel 1946 ben 85 bambini furono
colpiti dalla malattia: 35 di essi avevano ricevuto di
recente il vaccino per la pertosse (da 5 a 19 giorni prima)
e gli arti nei quali era stata fatta l'iniezione
risultarono paralizzati nel 58% dei bambini che avevano
Nel 1949, il rischio di contrarre la
infantile era 4 volte maggiore
nei soggetti che avevano ricevuto il vaccino DP (Difterite -
Pertosse) entro le 6
settimane precedenti, alla
falsamente detta, esposizione al
virus: questi dati
furono raccolti comparando il gruppo dei
vaccinati con un gruppo di controllo
1953, una ricerca effettuata su un'epidemia di polio
verificatasi in alcune isole del Pacifico dimostrò come
i bambini che avevano ricevuto iniezioni settimanali di
una soluzione di mercurio, arsenico e bismuto per
combattere una infestazione di spirochete avessero
successivamente sviluppato la polio in un rapporto 10:1

1954, uno studio intitolato "Fattori scatenanti e
localizzanti nella poliomielite", condotto da Trueta e
Hodes e pubblicato sulla rivista
The Lancet, delinea le
ricerche condotte a partire dall'inizio del 1900 sui
diversi fattori che sembravano aumentare la gravità
delle poliomieliti, ovvero che determinavano la loro
localizzazione in aree specifiche del sistema nervoso.
Già negli anni '20 i ricercatori ritenevano che il
della polio potesse migrare attraverso l'organismo
attraverso il sistema della circolazione sanguigna.
Questo breve accenno indusse Trueta e Hodes a condurre i
loro studi ipotizzando che il fattore che determina la
gravità e la localizzazione della polio poteva in
qualche modo trasferirsi dai vasi sanguigni nel sistema
nervoso, aumentando la
permeabilità della barriera fra
sangue e cervello, permettendo in tal modo al virus
della polio di accedere con maggiore facilità sia al
cervello che al
sistema nervoso centrale.
Gli esperimenti con la formalina e le altre
chimiche utilizzate nei
vaccini dimostrano la
congestione dei vasi sanguigni nelle zone corrispondenti
alla localizzazione della paralisi: queste ricerche ed i
lavori successivi hanno confermato la proprietà di
queste sostanze chimiche di aumentare la
malattia e le probabilità di
decesso, in funzione anche
del batterio o virus che viene iniettato
contemporaneamente con il vaccino.
studio successivo, del 1954, da parte del Consiglio
delle Ricerche Mediche della Gran Bretagna, rivelò che
il vaccino DP, specialmente quello ottenuto per
precipitazione grazie ai sali e
idrossidi di alluminio,
predisponeva i bambini a
contrarre la polio paralitica.

grado di accelerare delle

vere e proprie.
Dal momento che non si ritiene di esaminare in modo
completo coloro che vengono vaccinati, non è possibile
individuare qualsiasi forma di infezione latente che può
essere in tal modo risvegliata dal vaccino stesso, dalle
sostanze chimiche e dagli antibiotici che li

Un Rapporto ufficiale
rivela che l'uno per cento dei bambini americani, hanno
che esso e’ in crescita esponenziale.
Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
hanno pubblicato un nuovo rapporto che mostra che uno su
ogni 110 bambini in America oggi hanno una qualche forma
di autismo e cio’ nel 2006,

Con una stima di tre quarti di un milione di bambini e’
immessa da qualche parte, nello spettro autistico; il
gruppo di pressione per i Bambini autistici, “Autism
Speaks”, chiede al governo federale di aumentare gli
sforzi di ricerca per combattere la malattia.
Il rapporto, pubblicato sulla morbilità e mortalità su Weekly

di autismo tra il 2002 e il 2006.

Circa uno su ogni 70 ragazzi, attualmente ha una qualche

Scienziati e ricercatori riconoscono che il tasso di

qualcosa deve essere fatto per affrontare il problema.
Uno studio del 2007 della
Harvard School of Public Health, osserva che 35
miliardi dollari sono spesi ogni anno per trattare le
persone che soffrono di autismo, e che i bambini sono il
segmento in più rapida crescita delle persone che
vengono diagnosticati con la malattia.
I bambini sono spesso diagnosticati con autismo di età
compresa tra sei e otto anni, un'età che molti credono
sia troppo tardi, poiché la malattia è di solito
osservabile negli anni precedenti . Allo stato attuale,

Commenti di Mike Adams, il Ranger della Salute
Per ogni bambino che viene diagnosticato l'autismo, ci
sono genitori che si chiedono, "ha fatto i vaccini e
causano questo" ?
I tassi di autismo sono saliti alle stelle negli ultimi
due decenni, provocando un numero crescente di genitori
a chiedersi cosa c'è dietro la preoccupante tendenza.
L'autismo è chiaramente qualcosa a che fare con problemi
neurologici, ed è del tutto ragionevole sospettare che i
prodotti chimici infiammatori
utilizzati nei vaccini come adiuvanti possono
svolgere un ruolo importante nel causare l'autismo.
Ci possono essere altre cause, anche, come l'esposizione

"agenda" is to tell the truth. Like the fact that, according to
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) statistics, as many as 800,000 vaccine
induced injuries have occurred every year in the United States since
US Federal Government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP)
has paid out over 724.4 million dollars to parents of vaccine injured and
killed children, in taxpayer dollars.
NVICP has received over 5000 petitions since 1988, including over 700 for
vaccine-related deaths, and there are still over 2800 total death and
injury cases pending that may take years to resolve (NVICP, Health
Resources and Services Administration).
carnage caused by vaccinations has become so immense, and the outcry from
the grieving parents so intense, that the government has set up a national
compensation program in order to smooth everything over and to protect
drug companies and doctors from law suits. You, of course, pay for this
insurance for drug companies and doctors by the cost being added to the
price of the vaccines. In 1982, the vaccines cost $23 per child. By
1992, the cost had risen to $244--an increase of over 1,000 percent !
devastation of our children by our own doctors and public-health
departments has been so colossal that over $249 million has been awarded
for vaccine-caused injuries and deaths, and the program is now
bankrupt.Thousands of cases are pending that will recieve nothing--the pay
window has been slammed shut.
Even if you got lucky and recieved "compensation," will that
make up for your child's permanent paralysis ("Guillain-Barre
syndrome"), blindness ("idiopathic macular degeneration"),
mental deficiency ("learning disorder"), or incoordination
("tardive dyskinesia")? Will all those phoney diagnoses used to
cover up the real diagnosis help ?

narrow VAERS/FDA criteria (a very few specific symptoms must occur within

served as controls, who had either been infected with measles or
vaccinated with an attenuated measles vaccine in the past. All controls
were negative for measles virus except a recent (two week) vaccinee. Of
the hepatitis patients, all were positive for measles virus—the children
with vaccine-strain measles virus, and the adults with different strains.
Conclusion: "our results demonstrated that children with autoimmune
hepatitis can have persistence of the vaccine strain in vivo for many
years after vaccination [abstract, page 877]." The authors state that
the persistence of the measles virus might play some role in the pathology
of autoimmune hepatitis, but further studies are needed to prove this
hypothesis (page 883).
in "Polymerase," the authors observe that high levels of serum
antibodies to measles virus have been reported in patients with autoimmune
hepatitis (p. 877). References add systemic lupus erythematosus and
infectious mononucleosis to the tally of autoimmune diseases with
connections to measles (pages 883-4).
[Note: high antibody titers of
measles and rubella are also associated with autism.]
provocative quotes, page 882:
the attenuated vaccine is also capable of persisting, like sporadic wild
strains, in certain immune diseases. The measles virus is known to be
persistent in patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) and
measles inclusion body encephalitis (MIBE).
Since the introduction of
measles vaccines, vaccine-associated SSPE has increased in the USA.
Therefore, we should pay attention to SSPE after inoculation with measles
vaccine, despite the decrease in the incidence of [wild] measles."

pp. 699-703): the authors summarize of case reports attributing autoimmune
diseases and autoimmune phenomena to vaccines, and suggest possible
mechanisms by which the two could be related.
"The subject is
complicated," they say, "by the fact that one vaccine may cause
more than one autoimmune phenomenon, and a particular immune process may
be caused by more than one vaccine. Furthermore, vaccines differ in their
pathogenic influence on the immune system... The subject of the
vaccine-autoimmunity relationship is still obscure; reports have been
rare, [and] no laboratory experimentation on this topic has been
(Oddly, the authors state that the benefits of
vaccination outweigh the risks of disease, but given the authors'
contentions that vaccines can cause one or more types of autoimmune
disease, that reports are few and research non-existent, this statement is
unsupported. Further, they conclude that "laborious clinical and
laboratory studies should be initiated in order to evaluate the ..subject.")

that the risk of developing multiple sclerosis may be associated with
acquiring certain infectious childhood diseases at a later state in
comparison to normal controls."
[Early vaccination for these diseases,
therefore, may predispose vaccinees to MS, as immunity from vaccinations
frequently wanes in the years following early childhood vaccination (unlike
immunity to natural infection). In the event of such a vaccine failure,
natural infection may occur at a later age.]

one of the possible conditions resulting from altered permeability of, or
damage to the intestine, as occurs in association with measles and other
viruses. Note: strep-type bacteria are among those which can translocate
from the gut; these have been implicated in cases of Obsessive-Compulsive
Disorder and Tourette Syndrome.] "Bacterial translocation from the
gastrointestinal tract" (Trends in Microbiology, vol. 3, no. 4, April
1995, pp. 149-54): Viable indigenous bacteria from the gastrointestinal
tract can migrate to other sites within the body, such as the
mesenteric-lymph-node complex, liver, spleen, and bloodstream. Three
mechanisms support bacterial translocation: intestinal bacterial
overgrowth, deficiencies in host immune defenses and increased
permeability or damage to the intestinal mucosal barrier.

(Journal of the American Academy of Child and
Adolescent Psychiatry, vol. 34, no. 3, March 1995, pp. 307-11): the
authors hypothesize that infections with group A beta-hemolytic
streptococci, among other bacterial agents, may trigger autoimmune
responses that cause or exacerbate some cases of childhood-onset
obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or tic disorders including Tourette's
Syndrome. In this study, four boys aged 10 to 14 years presented with OCD
or Tourette's Syndrome in the moderate to very severe range. Two had
evidence of recent group A beta-hemolytic streptococci infections, and the
others had histories of recent viral illnesses.
on antineuronal antibody-mediated neuropsychiatric disorders of childhood"
(Pediatrics, vol. 93, no. 2, February 1994, pp. 323-6): "Several
converging lines of evidence suggest that some behavioral and neurological
abnormalities of childhood may be mediated through antineuronal antibodies.
These antineuronal antibodies appear to arise in response to group A
[beta]-hemolytic streptococcal (GABHS) infections and to cross-react with
cells within the central nervous system (CNS). Based on clinical
observations of children with Sydenham's chorea, Tourette's syndrome (TS),
and/or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), we hypothesize that
neuroimmunological dysfunction secondary to antineuronal antibodies may
result in behavioral disturbances, such as anxiety, emotional lability,
obsessive compulsive symptoms, hyperactivity, and sleep disturbances, and
neurological abnormalities, such as motor and phonic tics, ballismus,
chorea, and choreiform movements."

a possible culprit, says Karein B. Nelson, a pediatric neurologist at the
National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke in Bethesday, MD.
A study was performed by Nelson and colleagues which compared blood from

initially, thirty young children were tested and followed who showed the
first symptoms of CNS pathology with or immediately after vaccination with
polio, DT, measles, DPT, anti-tuberculosis, or Hepatitis-B vaccines.
Immediate reactions to the vaccines included convulsions, high fever, or
diarrhea with or immediately after vaccination. Among the post-vaccinal
symptoms were encephalopathies, food allergies, constipation, diarrhea,
and other central nervous system pathology.
Diagnoses applied to subjects
after vaccination and before this study were epilepsy of various types; epileptigenic encephalopathy, autism, West Syndrome, and Angelman's
were no genetic or metabolic anomalies revealed during testing which might
have explained the CNS symptoms.
The viral encephalopathies which
presented with or following vaccination were not due to transplacental
viral infection. EEGs after initial symptoms were negative in 92 percent.
Following vaccination and CNS symptoms, serologic investigations for
herpes viruses were positive in all cases for IgG. IgG for Epstein-Barr
virus and cytomegalovirus were estimated to be positive in 73.8/71.4
percent respectively, herpes simplex in 47.6 percent, and varicella zoster
in 21.4 percent of patients. 73.3 percent of subjects showed an increase
in the HLA-A3 and HLA-DR7 antigens as compared with the Italian population
authors found and describe, in this paper, biochemical markers of vaccine
damage (e.g., changes in inherited HLA type). They also point out that
most vaccines contain thimerosal, a toxic substance associated with
neurologic and gastrointestinal symptoms.
The fact that post-vaccinal
pathologies of the central nervous system are often not thoroughly
investigated occasioned this study. Additional cases are under study to
better define the possible association of HLA A3 and/or HLA DR7 with this
CNS pathology following vaccination.

Gulf War soldiers were given 17 different viral and bacterial
vaccines, including experimental anthrax and botulinum toxoid vaccines.
Experimental drugs were also given and [in veterans actually deployed to
the Gulf] there were exposures to pesticides, low-level chemical warfare
agents, low-level radiation, toxic combustion products, etc. The resultant
symptoms are similar to those of vaccine-damaged children.
Dr. Howard B. Urnovitz, microbiologist and Science Director of the Chronic Illness
Research Foundation, interpreted findings to indicate that certain
genotypes may be particularly at risk for sustaining chromosomal damage
after exposure to toxic events; ways to identify and prescreen for
individuals who may be at high risk for chromosomal damage should be found.
