We’ve all heard the most common talking points of pharma-sponsored vaccine propaganda in the mainstream media, but sometimes it’s hard to conjure up the right response when the same unfounded soundbites come at you in real life.
Save this blog. And the next and the next. I’ve got your answers for you.
#1 When they say, “Scientific studies have proven that vaccines don’t cause autism!”
Then you say, “Despite what you’ve heard in the media, only one shot and one ingredient have ever been studied for their role in causing autism.”
In the following two CDC (Centers for Disease Control) studies, just one shot– out of the ten single and combination shots on the infant vaccination schedule– and one ingredient– out of more than three dozen– have ever been studied in relation to autism. And both studies reek of scientific fraud.
The MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) study
Dr. William Thompson, a scientist on the CDC’s 2004 MMR-doesn’t-cause-autism study, was granted whistleblower protection by President Obama in 2014. Why would a scientist need that protection? Because recordings were released of him admitting that their study originally showed that the MMR does cause autism –most notably a 240% increase in African American boys– and that his co-authors at the CDC conspired to hide that finding.
Other studies that claim to prove the MMR’s innocence are based on this fraudulent study, or they are retroactive cohort studies (not case controlled like the CDC’s MMR study) which are rife with selection bias, unexplained parameters, and creative definitions of what it means to be “unvaccinated.” There is an often-cited 2015 “MMR doesn’t cause autism” retroactive cohort study of over 95,000 kids that Dr. Paul Thomas does an excellent job of dissecting if you’d like to learn more.
The mercury study
Dr. Thomas Verstraeten, the lead author of the CDC’s 2003 mercury-doesn’t-cause-autism study, sounded the alarm when he found that mercury-based thimerosal preservative was causing a 760% increase in autism prevalence. Thimerosal was used in the Hep B vaccines and DTaP vaccines up until 2003, and is continued to be used in flu shots today. But, according to the World Mercury Project, Verstraeten was pushed aside while others reworked his study to bury the damaging discovery. Verstraeten then resigned from the CDC, returned to his homeland, and took a job with GlaxoSmithKline before his CDC study was even published, which Congress found to be a violation of ethics. The nail in the coffin came during a 2004 Institute of Medicine Review of that study, when the CDC’s presentation slides revealed that they had “lost” the study’s raw data sets used from the Vaccine Safety Datalink. Voila! No one will ever be able check their findings. (Note: these CDC slides are now removed from the IOM website, too, but you can read more about them here.)
Does this sound like a comprehensive investigation into vaccination causing autism?
#2 When they say, “But today’s vaccines have less antigens than vaccines from decades ago, so they’re safer now.”
Then you say, “Who said that vaccines had too many antigens? That’s a straw man argument. We’ve been told hundreds of times that infants have the capacity to respond to an enormous number of antigens. Vaccine antigens were reduced to maximize manufacturer profits, not to improve safety.”
When parents say that today’s schedule is “too many too soon,” they mean too many vaccines, not too many antigens. There is a lot more to a vaccine vial than antigens. Heck, the hep B vaccine only has one little antigen. I still don’t want it injected into my kid.
Disease antigens are expensive to produce and vaccine makers want to minimize expenses. Decades ago, only the DTP (diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis) vaccine used aluminum adjuvant. But today, vaccines for seven diseases on the bloated schedule have powerful neurotoxic aluminum adjuvants that cause a little bit of antigen to elicit a huge immune response.
I’ll sit here and wait while you research the safety of aluminum. It has no known use to the human body, it causes an IgE response and increases allergies, it’s a highly reactive and damaging neurotoxin, and rather than being excreted by the body, it accumulates in the brain.
Vaccines are no safer for it.
#3 When they say, “Mercury was taken out of vaccines in 2001 and autism rates rose anyway!”
