Vaccine bombshell baby monkeys develop Autism

Vaccine bombshell: Baby monkeys develop autism symptoms after obtaining doses of popular vaccines

Following a recent study conducted by scientists at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania which revealed that many infant monkeys given standard doses of childhood vaccines as part of the new research,developed autism symptoms, question marks over the ultimate safety of vaccines have come to the fore.

The groundbreaking research findings presented at the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) in London, England, have revealed that young macaque monkeys given the typical CDC-recommended vaccination schedule from the 1990s, and in appropriate doses for the monkeys’ sizes and ages, tended to develop autism symptoms. Theirunvaccinated counterparts, on the other hand, developed no such symptoms, which points to a strong connection between vaccines and autism spectrum disorders.

This development which deconstructs mainstream myth that vaccines are safe and pose no risk of autism, was brought on by after studies on the type of proper safety research on typical childhood vaccination schedules that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) should have conducted — but never has — for such regimens.

Included in the mix were vaccines containing Thimerosal, a toxic, mercury-based compound that has been phased out of some vaccines, but is still present in batch-size influenza vaccines and a few others.

Also administered was the controversial measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, which has been linked time and time again to causing autism and various other serious, and often irreversible, health problems in children.

“This research underscores the critical need for more investigation into immunizations, mercury, and the alterations seen in autistic children,” said Lyn Redwood, Director of SafeMinds, a public safety group working to expose the truth about vaccines and autism.
“SafeMinds calls for large scale, unbiased studies that look at autism medical conditions and the effects of vaccines given as a regimen.”

Adding to the sentiment, Theresa Wrangham, president of SafeMinds called out the CDC for failing to require proper safety studies of its recommended vaccination schedules. Unlike all other drugs, which must at least undergo a basic round of safety testing prior to approval and recommendation, vaccinations and vaccine schedules in particular do not have to be proven safe or effective before hitting the market.

“The full implications of this primate study await publication of the research in a scientific journal,” said Wrangham. “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.”

I don't take this seriously, not until I read the whole study in a scientific journal.

Certain Vaccines trigger Autism for those who have the stagnant condition in the body of those who are sensitive to it. My husband has spoken with the wife of a retired pharm consultant and they know it does but it's big business. Even doctors who admit it have their reputation attacked because they want to keep people ignorant and continue covering it up. 

Quoting caito:

Will people ever let it go? Vaccines don't cause autism. The end.

Will monkeys are very social after they are given the vaccine they are sitting in a Conner not being Social and are rocking just like Autistic kids.

I assume that is what they mean.

I wonder if they gave the monkeys multiple different vaccines at the same time, like we do infants? They now make a 5-1 vaccine, for the obvious reason of decreasing painful stimuli. If a recipient reacted, all 5 would need to be halted for that recipient.

IDK about the veracity of the study, but I do think we inject far too many chemicals into highly metabolic beings, over too short a period time- in a critical time in terms of growth and brain development.

No. That would mean that those vaccines caused Autism. If I give my son a bug, he's perfectly fine, and that bug I gave him "triggers" a cold--that bug caused my son's cold.

Quoting GOBryan:

No but certain vaccines DO trigger Autism. 

Quoting AdellesMom:

Vaccines don't cause Autism.



How do you know if a monkey has Autism symptoms?

Is this the same study that had three monkeys as a control group?

Is there a  link with the study?

My little guy had symptoms at birth, before he had vaccines.  Heck in utero he bruised my ribs from the repative  kicking.  His symptoms didn't worsen after his vaccines.  I don't really buy they autism vaccine link.

By the way Doctor Oz does not vaccinate his family. And they do not do the flu shots!!

Autism symptoms? What the fuck are autism symptoms in monkeys? As the mother of two boys on the spectrum I find this type of biased research disgusting.

I wish this kind of stuff was thought through thoroughly instead of taken as scientifically accurate.
