Infant Monkeys Given Standard Doses of Vaccines Develop Autism Symptoms

Published January 28, 2013, filed under HEALTH

Infant Vaccines Produce Autism Symptoms in New Primate Study by University Of Pittsburgh Scientists

Routine Safety Study That Government Scientists Refused to Do Illustrates Vaccine Program and Mercury Health Risks

Atlanta, GA: Findings released today showed that infant monkeys given vaccines officially recommended by the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) exhibited autism-like symptoms. Lead investigator Laura Hewitson of the University of Pittsburgh and colleagues presented study results at the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) in London. Safety studies of medicines are typically conducted in monkeys prior to use in humans, yet such basic research on the current childhood vaccination regimen has never before been done.

The abstracts presented at IMFAR, the world’s top autism science conference, describe biological changes and altered behavior in vaccinated macaques that are similar to those observed in children with autism. Unvaccinated animals showed no such adverse outcomes. The vaccines given were those recommended for U.S. infants in the 1990s, including several with the mercury preservative thimerosal and the Measles-Mumps-Rubella vaccine. Rates of autism spectrum disorder among children born in the 1990s surged dramatically, from about 1 in 5,000 to 1 in 150 children.

“This research underscores the critical need for more investigation into immunizations, mercury, and the alterations seen in autistic children,” stated Lyn Redwood, director of SafeMinds. “SafeMinds calls for large scale, unbiased studies that look at autism medical conditions and the effects of vaccines given as a regimen.”

The group’s request for research echoes that of Dr. Bernadine Healy, Former NIH Director, in a CBS interview earlier this week. She asserted that public health officials have been too quick to dismiss an autism-vaccine connection when the research has been insufficient. The government recently conceded a federal vaccine court case which agreed that a child regressed into autism as a result of 9 vaccines given on one day.

“The full implications of this primate study await publication of the research in a scientific journal,” noted Theresa Wrangham, president of SafeMinds. “But we can say that it demonstrates how the CDC evaded their responsibility to investigate vaccine safety questions. Vaccine safety oversight should be removed from the CDC and given to an independent agency.”

    Bullshit

  2. David says:

    look into “Laura Hewitson of the University of Pittsburgh ”
    she quit since there was a conflict of interest, so i call bullshit on her research…

  3. L00KING closer says:

    Your references for that statement, sir?

  4. L00KING closer says:

    Conflict of interest is an INVALID argument. Please research all of the “scientific data” collected on vaccine trials. Read the “acknowledgements” section of published papers. You will find certain conflict of interest in most (if not ALL) of those papers – as the selective science is conducted by the vaccine manufacturers, vaccine parent holders, or researchers who receive/have received funding from companies who manufacture vaccines. THEREFORE, if you wish to claim conflict of interest as a reason to dismiss these findings, you will have to eliminate all safety and efficacy papers on vaccination. Please supply a valid argument – not conflict of interest. We want facts, not propaganda or opinions.

  5. L00KING closer says:

    ** vaccine PATENT holders. (auto-correct)

  6. Chris says:

    I for one don’t trust the FDA, CDC, big pharma or vaccines. We have seen an explosion in cancer, diabetes, heart disease and all manner of illnesses that have no other logical explanation other than the drastic increase in vaccines, preservatives in our food, over-processed foods, GMO; the list goes on and on. Doctors are no longer healers but legalized drug pushers. Medical error kill the equilvalent of a loaded jumbo jet going down once a day.

    DISCULPEN….!!!!!!!!!! HASTA EL MAS TONTO SABE QUE EL MERCURIO HG EN LA TABLA DE ELEMENTOS ES EL MAS TOXICO JUNTO CON EL URANIO: MERCURIO TIMEROSAL EN TODAS SUS FORMAS ETILMERCURIO,METILMERCURIO,,ES SOLO QUE VEAN LAS CONSECUENCIA EN LA CUIDAD DE MINAMATA JAPON LOS ESTRAGOS QUE CAUSO!!!!!

    I was curious so here is a very rough translation to English: “Excuse me… .!!!!!!!!!! EVEN THE MOST STUPID KNOWS THAT THE MERCURY HG IN THE TABLE OF ELEMENTS IS THE MOST TOXIC ALONG WITH THE URANIUM: MERCURY THIMEROSAL IN ALL ITS FORMS ethylmercury,methylmercury”IS ONLY TO SEE THE RESULT IN THE CITY OF Minamata JAPAN THE havoc IT WROUGHT!!!!! DOCTORS ARE SOME MATASANO AND A HUGE MAFIA! REMEMBER THEY WANT DEPENDENT PATIENTS SYSTEM,THE BOOK THE MEDICAL MAFIA GHISLAINE LANCTOT! THERE IS NO WORSE BLIND WHO DON’T WANT TO SEE”

  9. L00KING closer says:

    I’m inclined to agree that the worst cases of being blind are in those who choose not to look. I refuse to accept excuses such as “no data exists” to show a causal relationship between vaccines and “X” as a valid reason to either vaccinate or not vaccinate until genuine, long term, real-placebo controlled studies have been completed. Albert Einstein: Condemnation without thorough investigation is the height of ignorance!

  10. L00KING closer says:

    In defence of *most* doctors, they are only doing what they believe to be conducive to the health and wellbeing of their patients. This doesn’t mean that they are correct, however. They believe in what they are trained to believe, but who finances that training? And who conducts the scientific research? And who chooses the information to include in the results and the training that is offered? I used to think that anti-vaccinators where absolutely cuckoo but when I starting digging a little deeper, I discovered that (despite their often unreferenced and seemingly crazy ranting) there is truth in there, if you’re prepared to invest the time to sift through it and research the science. The “crazy rantings” heading goes for the pro-vaccinators too – they’re spouting plenty of unreferenced propaganda as well, or worse still, boosting public hatred against the ones who are looking closer for a safer road to health for everyone. We need more independent research. We need less emotionality, less fear of what may be found & the legal repercussions of it, we need more true & unedited science.

    How can a monkey be autistic? Oh wait…autism LIKE symptoms, which are what exactly? No mention. This is precisely the kind of sloppy half truth reporting that leads to parents stop immunising their children and lives being lost. A life lived in fear is not an intelligent one

  12. Fighter says:

    1 out of 81 children in the US now fall within the autism spectrum and 1 out 50 males. If this was a cancer, bacteria, or a virus, attacking adults everyone would be up in arms. The truth; parents with children that have it are too busy caring for their kids to fight and seek the cause! Vaccines are big – HUGE money in the country and anyone that tries to prove the link gets cut off faster than witnesses to Whitewater.

  13. L00KING closer says:

    You obviously don’t read a lot of science. Please come back when you have, & have something to offer other than personal opinion – I’d love to know what you have discovered. Parents want honestly researched facts as arguments, not just personal opinions which may only be a parroting regurgitation of half truths – we are not as silly as you may think. We want valid, non-emotional arguments to weigh up from both sides. Give us the safety facts you have, please.

  14. L00KING closer says:

    I believe that there is a cumulative effect of toxins on an infant/child but what is the “straw that breaks the camel’s back” so-to-speak? Here’s a starter regarding the aluminium adjuvants added to vaccines, remember when mercury was reduced? That was when the aluminium was increased & here are some published findings from 2011: (ASD = Autism Spectrum Disorder, Al = Aluminium)

    “Our results show that:
    (i) children from countries with the highest ASD prevalence appear to have the highest exposure to Al from vaccines;
    (ii) the increase in exposure to Al adjuvants significantly correlates with the increase in ASD prevalence in the United States observed over the last two decades (Pearson r=0.92, p<0.0001); and
    (iii) a significant correlation exists between the amounts of Al administered to preschool children and the current prevalence of ASD in seven Western countries, particularly at 3-4 months of age (Pearson r=0.89-0.94, p=0.0018-0.0248).

    The application of the Hill's criteria to these data indicates that the correlation between Al in vaccines and ASD may be causal. Because children represent a fraction of the population most at risk for complications following exposure to Al, a more rigorous evaluation of Al adjuvant safety seems warranted."

    We must complete the research – no matter the financial cost, safety must be the priority.

    I agree that doctors don’t know everything and you have to make sure, if you get a new doctor, that “they” know what other medications you are taking. I had a partial big toe amputation by a doctor I’d been seeing for a few years. What I didn’t know was that she had never done one before and got instructions from a doctor who I’d never seen. The amputation went well but the new doctor prescribed a medication I’d never taken before. After about a week, I got so weak my wife rented a wheelchair for me. After another week, I couldn’t even get out of bed. We called an ambulance and went to the hospital where the first thing they did was take me off all med’s exept the ones I was taking before the ampuataion. It was discovered the new medication would have killed me in another few days if I’d not gone to the emergency room. [ I did file a complaint with the doctor and the board at the hospital where it was done. I didn't file a lawsuit because I'm against filing just because you can. ]

  16. Ron says:

    Wouldn’t it be better to vaccine later in life so the child has a better chance of NOT becoming autistic?

  17. Prof. SJ Broyd says:

    LooKING closer clearly has a vested interest in promting this immature rubbish, what an embarrassment to science. Pathetic, it’d be humorous if it wasn’t so damaging.

  18. Steven Geoff says:

    This is a really good example of why peer reviewed science is the only type of science that people should read. Publications like Science and Nature have a reputation which they must protect, so giving false, misleading or “un-scientific” tabloid piffle like this, where the only peer review is done by a moderator on the comments board is not worth the space it occupies on the Internet

  19. Where is the world going says:

    My children were NOT vaccinated until they were 5. Neither one of them has ever missed a day of school being sick. They don’t get sick. They are both the top student in their classes and are very smart. (11 and 10) We eat right at home and we don’t take medicine. There is no need. There is most certainly a difference in not being sick and being healthy. Stay away from medications unless YOU are sure of the pros/cons. Everything comes with a trade off. Until you know what those are you are not in a position to decide. Stop being spoon fed propaganda and “facts” like you can’t read. This is not telling you to not vaccinate. It’s telling you to learn for yourself if you should. The plight of the modern world is people just accept everything they are told without question. Because someone always knows better than us. That’s BS and every one of you can agree to that. We have brains, now use them.

  20. ken jefferson says:

    lets not overlook the 5 billion, world population goal, and the proposed form of delivery, to accomplish such numbers, is vaccines. There are powers at play far deeper and immoral then we commonly choose to aknowledge.

  21. parent with an open mind says:

    my kid was typical until her MMR vaccine at 12 months. She has been through so much over the years that I cannot even put into words how horrible it has been. she now has been dx with SEVERE ADHD. Because we were badgered I ended up getting her all of the required vaccines but at a much slower pace…probably helped to give her brain time to heal from each damaging bit of aluminum. I really believe there is more to the vaccines-autism link and I know all about the controversy. I am just saying that it needs to be studied. People who are all pro-vaccine are such rude aholes about it. They are so sure they are right. I say, lets keep an open mind and look further into this kind of thing. And, yes, peer reviewed is what we need to see.

  22. My very good friend, who I lived with for a number of years, contracted mumps and polio as a direct result of not being vaccinated. He is profoundly deaf, overweight, has heart problems, and is infertile. He HATES his parents.

  23. Steve says:

    How about a link to the study conducted by the University of Pittsburgh? I think the University seems a pretty legit authority. Is it possible for the author to put a link up for that? Or anyone else if you have it?

    Thanks.

  24. how about a study instead of some shills blog. Science vs blog hmm. I think I’ll believe the monkey study

  25. I guess the “danish” autism study is bs too then since one of the lead researchers is a felon. Or perhaps we should call bs too on all the studies showing vaccines work and are safe since every single one has a conflict of interest.

  26. you are right. A life lived in fear is not an intelligent one. I guess this is why research shows that more intelligent, higher educated parents choose not to vaccinate. The majority of ppl vaccinate out of fear. The use of autism like symptoms is because of scientific observation. Since autism is only diagnosed by observation this is the proper wording. If there was a test for autism (say blood etc.) then it would say autism and not autism like symptoms. There are also plenty of children unvaccinated, healthy and alive. As well there are plenty of vaccinated children who die of disease or complications/side effects of vaccines.

  27. Parents report children regressing into autism after vaccines at as high as 5yrs of age. After that the reactions are similar to autism but only in symptoms (physical). There are countries who do start vaccinating only after the age of 2 and they have lower autism rates. It’s kind of like a grab bag, you take it and who knows what you’re gonna get.
