Preface by: Roger Landry (TLB)
There is a tidal wave of neurological dysfunction occurring all around us, whether we are speaking of Autism, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, Dementia or numerous other conditions. Of ever increasing concern is the rising number of our children afflicted by these life altering conditions and the causality, because they are our future. We are talking about occurrences here that are reaching catastrophic proportions, yet we see relatively little being accomplished by our government agencies to research and combat this blight. Could it be that they are already aware of the causality; could there be a direct correlation between the ever increasing number of vaccinations we are exposed to and the rising tide of neurological dysfunctions we suffer as a society? Please read and research the information presented below as only Christina England can present it … It is time to wake up …

The Adjuvant Aluminium a Growing Concern
A growing number of children are being diagnosed with neurological defects and scientists believe that this increase could be attributed to the large number of preservatives and adjuvants being added to vaccines.
A recent study conducted by Canadian scientists Professor Christopher Shaw and Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic revealed that the more vaccines that children receive containing the adjuvant aluminum, the greater chance they have of developing autism, autoimmune diseases and neurological problems in the future.
Their paper, titled Aluminum in the Central Nervous System: Toxicity in Humans and Animals, Vaccine Adjuvants, and Autoimmunity, published by Springer Science+Business Media, revealed that during a 17-year period, the rates of autism increased significantly in countries whose children receive the highest number of vaccines, containing the adjuvant aluminium. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23609067
A Highly Significant Correlation
The researchers compared the number of vaccines that were recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) during the period from 1991 – 2008 and the changes in autism rates.
Professor Shaw and Dr. Tomlejenovic wrote:
“The data sets, graphed against each other, show a pronounced and statistically highly significant correlation between the number vaccines with aluminum and the changes in autism rates. Further data showed that a significant correlation exists between the amounts of aluminum given to preschool children and the current rates of autism in seven Western countries. Those countries with the highest level of aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines had the highest autism rates.” (own emphasis)
“The observed correlation between the number of aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines and ASD was further tested using Hill’s criteria and met eight of nine of these indicating that vaccines containing aluminum are highly likely to be at least partially causal for autism.”
For those who are not familiar with ‘Hill’s criteria,’ it is a technique used to determine a causal link between a specific factor and a disease. For example, does excess smoking cause lung cancer? Scientists seeking ‘to establish a valid causal connection between a potential disease agent’ and a disease now frequently use the technique, which was first developed by British medical statistician Austin Bradford Hill.http://www.drabruzzi.com/hills_criteria_of_causation.htm
Professor Shaw and Dr. Tomljenovic continued their paper by adding that:
“There are other links between aluminum exposure/toxicity and ASD. These include the following: A pilot study showed higher than normal aluminum levels in the hair, blood and/or urine of autistic children;
children are regularly exposed to higher levels of aluminum in vaccines per body weight than adults; practically, nothing is known about the pharmacokinetics and toxicodynamics of aluminum in vaccines in children; and aluminum in vaccines has been linked to serious neurological impairments, chronic fatigue and autoimmunity.”
And it is Not Just the Adjuvants That Are a Problem
Whilst aluminium is an adjuvant, thimerosal is a preservative and it has been used in vaccinations since the 1930s.
Thimerosal is 49.6% ethyl mercury and known to be a highly toxic poison, which is both geno-toxic and neuro-toxic. http://thimerosalthoughts-bb.blogspot.co.uk/
Eli Lilly first tested thimerosal in 1930, when they vaccinated 22 terminally ill meningitis patients with a vaccine containing the preservative. As expected, all of the patients died within weeks of being vaccinated. However, Eli Lilly failed to mention this result in their report, thereby declaring the preservative safe.
In 2006, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote a paper titled Deadly Immunity – Government Cover-up of a Mercury/Autism Scandal. He wrote:
“… In 1935, researchers at another vaccine manufacturer, Pittman-Moore, warned Lilly that its claims about thimerosal’s safety ‘did not check with ours.’ Half the dogs Pittman injected with thimerosal-based vaccines became sick, leading researchers there to declare the preservative ‘unsatisfactory as a serum intended for use on dogs.’”
These studies and the original Eli Lilly studies proved that thimerosal is not only dangerous to humans, but it is also dangerous to dogs. However, despite this evidence, vaccine manufacturers continued to use the preservative in children’s vaccinations.
More Damning Evidence Emerges
In 2014, David A. Geier, Brian S. Hooker, Janet K. Kern, Paul G. King, Lisa K. Sykes and Mark R. Geier published a study titled A Dose-Response Relationship between Organic Mercury Exposure from Thimerosal-Containing Vaccines and Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
The team, headed by Dr. David Geier, examined the growing number of concerns surrounding the toxic effects of organic-mercury (Hg) exposure from thimerosal-containing vaccines and the risk of neurodevelopmental disorders, which included pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), specific developmental delay, tic disorder and hyper-kinetic syndrome.
Dr. Geier and his team examined automated medical records from the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) project, to identify cases and controls that had been born between 1991 and 2000. The researchers examined whether or not there was a potential dose-response relationship between organic mercury exposure in the hepatitis B vaccines (T-HBVs) administered within the first six months of life and specific neurodevelopmental disorders (NDs).
Dr. Geier and his team wrote:
“A hypothesis testing case-control study was undertaken to evaluate the potential dose-response relationship between organic-Hg exposure from thimerosal-containing hepatitis B vaccines (T-HBVs) administered within the first six months of life and the subsequent risk of being diagnosed with specific neurodevelopmental disorders (NDs) within the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) database.”
Their paper continued:
“The biological plausibility of the results observed in the present study are supported by previous investigators observing that TCV (Thimersol Containing Vaccine) administration to human infants resulted in some infants having blood and hair Hg levels in excess of safety limits established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).”
Despite previous investigators also observing that vaccinations containing thimerosol, given to infants, had resulted in infants having blood and hair mercury levels in EXCESS of the safety limits established by the US EPA, thimerosal remains in vaccinations today.
However, what the team discovered next is even more shocking.
“In addition, the evaluation of the distribution of Hg following the administration of TCVs to infant monkeys mimicking the U.S. vaccine schedule of the 1990s showed that significant Hg levels were present in the brain and resulted in alterations in the number of neurons in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus and thalamus.”
“Recently, thimerosal and ethyl-Hg species were shown to be actively transported across neuronal cellular membranes [17,18]. It is of great concern that administration of TCVs results in increased brain Hg concentrations, because once Hg enters the brain, it has a plethora of adverse neurodevelopmental effects associated with the ND outcomes examined in the present study.”
After completing an extremely in-depth study and taking all the possible variables and biases into account, Dr. Geire and his team concluded:
“This study provides new epidemiological evidence supporting a significant relationship between increasing organic-Hg exposure from TCVs and the subsequent risk of an ND diagnosis. Future studies should be completed to further evaluate the relationship between other sources of organic-Hg exposure from TCVs and other chronic disorders and to further explore potential subpopulations and the timing of exposure to organic-Hg from TCV administration associated with adverse outcomes. Routine childhood vaccination is an important public health tool to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with infectious diseases. However, it is also a public health imperative to end the unnecessary addition of thimerosal to vaccines based on data showing an association between its administration and adverse outcomes.” http://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/11/9/9156
In other words, based on their data, the team strongly recommended that thimerosal should be removed from all vaccines in the future.
Even the CDC Admits That Thimerosal in Vaccinations is Dangerous
Interestingly, Dr. Geire’s research is in line with recent statements made by the CDC whistleblower Dr. Thompson.
The Autism Media Channel recently released an audio recording of a telephone conversation that took place between CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson and Dr. Brian Hooker.
During the conversation, Dr. William Thompson made the following statements:
“You know in the United States, the only vaccine it (thimerosal) is still in is for pregnant women.”
“I can say confidently that I do think … thimerosal causes tics.
So, I don’t know why they still give it to pregnant women. Like, that’s the last person that I would give … mercury to.
Thimerosal from vaccines causes tics. You start a campaign and make it your mantra! Do you think a pregnant mother would want to take a vaccine that they knew caused tics? Absolutely not! I would never give my wife a vaccine that I thought caused tics. I can say, tics are four times more prevalent in kids with autism. There is biologic plausibility right now to say that thimerosal causes autism-like features!”http://www.autismmediachannel.com/
These are strong words from the whistleblower because, by making these statements, he inadvertently verified that giving pregnant women vaccinations containing thimerosal heightened the risk of their unborn child developing “autism-like features.”
Study Examines Both Thimerosal and Aluminium
In September 2014, Cynthia D. Nevison, from the University of Colorado, published a paper titled A comparison of temporal trends in United States autism prevalence to trends in suspected environmental factors.
The paper examined whether or not environmental toxins (including vaccinations) were to blame for the rise in autism in recent years.
During her investigations, Nevison studied a variety of toxins, preservatives and aduvants, including lead, thimerosal, the herbicide glyphosate, polybrominated diphenyl ethers and aluminum adjuvants. She wrote:
“Most of the suspected environmental toxins examined have flat or decreasing temporal trends that correlate poorly to the rise in autism. Some, including lead, organochlorine pesticides and vehicular emissions, have strongly decreasing trends. Among the suspected toxins surveyed, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, aluminum adjuvants, and the herbicide glyphosate have increasing trends that correlate positively to the rise in autism.”
In the section titled Mercury and Vaccines, Nevison examined whether or not the hypothesis “autism was a sign of mercury poisoning,” held any weight. She wrote:
“In the original hypothesis, the vaccine preservative thimerosal was suggested as the main relevant route of exposure. Additional file 1: Figure S6 shows that the expansion of thimerosal exposure in the late 1980s and early 1990s coincides closely with the rise in autism around that time. However, as noted by others, the temporal trends in autism and thimerosal following the childhood vaccine thimerosal phaseout are incompatible. Postnatal thimerosal therefore seems unlikely to be driving the ongoing increase in autism in the 2000s, although a recent reported decrease in the severity of ASD among younger birth cohorts may coincide with the thimerosal phaseout.”
What she discovered next confirmed the words of Dr. William Thompson, spoken during his conversation with Dr. Brian Hooker.
“A possible confounding factor in the postnatal thimerosal analysis is the administration of flu shots to pregnant women, which increased in the late 1990s/early 2000s around the same time that thimerosal was being phased out of children’s vaccines. Many flu shots still contain 25 μg Hg and thus may be leading to increased prenatal exposure.”
In other words, although the use of thimerosol in childhood vaccinations was being phased out during the late 1990s and early 2000s, the flu shots being given to pregnant women containing the same preservative increased around the same time.
Nevison proceeded to discuss the use of aluminium in vaccinations and its possible correlation to the rise in autism that is being seen today. She believed that most epidemiological studies had been unable to find a correlation between vaccines and autism because researchers were focussing their attention on either thimerosal or the MMR vaccine as the cause, rather than researching aluminium as a correlating or causal factor. She wrote:
“Other vaccine indices, including cumulative aluminum adjuvants and cumulative total number of immunizations, continue to correlate strongly with autism trends. Aluminium is a demonstrated neurotoxin that can induce neuroimmune disorders and cellular oxidative stress. Several recent studies have described biological mechanisms by which aluminum could contribute to autism and have emphasized the need to consider the interaction of aluminum and vaccines with other pharmaceuticals, including antibiotics and the antipyretic acetaminophen. The upward trend in aluminum adjuvant exposure is also notable in that very young infants have experienced the largest relative increases from the early 1980s to 2005. Newborns have seen essentially an infinite increase due to the hepatitis B birth dose, the receipt of which has been linked epidemiologically to increased autism risk], while 2 month-olds have seen about a 3-fold increase in aluminum adjuvant exposure (range 2.5 to 5.7, depending on the Al content assumed for DPT and DTaP, which varies widely among different manufacturers ). However, with the exception noted above, most epidemiological studies have found no correlation between vaccines and autism, although these studies have focused specifically on either thimerosal or the MMR vaccine rather than on aluminum.” http://www.ehjournal.net/content/13/1/73/abstract
Dr. Paul G. King Rocks the Boat
In 2012, a paper written by Dr. Paul G. King, PhD, titled Falsus in Uno, Falsus in Omnibus – A Thimerosal preserved Vaccine Conundrum appears to prove the thimerosal/vaccine connection, once and for all.
Using a Danish document written in 2003 by Kreesten M. Madsen et al. titled Thimerosal and the Occurrence of Autism: Negative Ecological Evidence From Danish Population – Based Data, which had been used by many to “disprove” the evidence of a causal connection between the developing child’s exposure to thimerosal in thimerosal – preserved vaccines and “autism.” Dr. King cleverly proved that, in fact, the complete opposite is the case.
“The discontinuation of thimerosal – containing vaccines in Denmark in 1992 was followed by an increase in the incidence of autism.”
“If the true incidence and prevalence rates for autism in Denmark actually had significantly increased after all of the Thimerosal – preserved vaccines were removed from the Danish vaccination schedule in 1992, then, this finding would be powerful evidence that:
There was no causal linkage between Thimerosal exposure and the risk of autism, and
Denmark should have re-introduced the Thimerosal – preserved vaccines because the study’s published findings clearly indicated that Thimerosal – preserved vaccines “suppressed” the risk of autism.”
However, what he states next proves the opposite. He wrote:
“However, the Danes did not reintroduce the Thimerosal – preserved vaccines and the 2004 estimate (made more than a decade after Thimerosal’s removal) for the incidence of autism in Denmark children aged 5 to 9 years in 1995 – 2000 had, for several reasons, changed to the point that it was about 1 child in “1400.””
This proves beyond doubt that by removing thimerosal from vaccines, the cases of autism in Denmark decreased rather than increased, as first stated.
Dr. King continued by stating:
“In contrast, in the USA, where no effort was made to “remove” Thimerosal – preserved vaccines from the market until after 2000, the latest estimate for the raw incidence. 3 of “autism ” as “autism spectrum disorders” (ASDs) in 8 – year – old – children born in 1999 – 2000 and appraised in 2008 is, on average , “1 in 88” in the disjoint districts in the surveillance areas where, in some states (e.g., in New Jersey and in Utah), the raw incidence rate s were greater than 2% (1 in < 50).” http://dr-king.com/docs/20120331_FalsusInUnoFalsusInOmnibusAThimerosalpreservedVaccineConundrum_b.pdfineConundrum_b.pdf
This fact alone further supports the the long-held belief that thimerosal – containing vaccinations can lead to autism in children.
It is clear from the magnitude of research papers which can be easily accessed by a click of a button that vaccinations crammed full of toxins, preservatives and adjuvants can cause neurological defects in children.
Despite this fact, more and more vaccinations are being approved for children’s vaccination schedules every day. Isn’t it about time that parents questioned whether their children really need a vaccination to protect them from every disease, from the common cold to cancer, and how many vaccinations are a safe number?
