Prior to receiving the HPV vaccine in 2011, Rikke Viborg of Denmark was a normal, healthy and active pre-teen. So, when her doctor suggested she be vaccinated with Gardasil, the HPV vaccine developed by Merck and recommended by the Danish public health system for girls her age, her parents saw no reason to question its safety or necessity.
New Physicians’ Registry Tracks Prevalence and Characteristics of Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvant (ASIA)
Until recently, cases of ASIA have been largely anecdotal and shared only informally among physicians, making them difficult to both qualify and quantify. The lack of wide scale and comprehensive reporting has also slowed progress toward diagnosing (and potentially preventing) the epidemic growth in autoimmune illnesses worldwide.
On April 6th in Leipsig, Germany, we (CMSRI) will be sponsoring our 4th International Symposium on Vaccines at the 10th International Congress on Autoimmunity, where experts from around the globe will be discussing new research that conclusively links vaccines to autoimmune diseases in prone individuals. By all accounts, this is an historic step towards unlocking the causes behind today’s epidemic of autoimmune illnesses like MS, Parkinsons, ALS, Alzheimer’s Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Autism.
• More evidence of aluminum’s role in Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, MS and other autoimmune conditions;
• Findings on the consequences of aluminum contamination in infant formulas; and
• Reports on the potential hidden dangers of aluminum adjuvants in vaccination and immunotherapy
These are among the many findings of scientific research conducted worldwide in 2015 and anticipated in 2016 according to Keele University’s Professor of Bioinorganic Chemistry and renowned expert in aluminum, Dr. Christopher Exley.
There are so many good reasons to eat healthy, but perhaps one of the most important is that a nutritious, toxin-free diet can prevent and treat some chronic illnesses. Although it is true the origins of these diseases are complicated, today’s lifestyle, with its easy access to foods that are highly processed and/or exposed to toxins, can almost certainly exasperate health problems. While there is a lot of conflicting information out there about what foods are safe and beneficial, we at CMSRI highly recommend the following sites for the most comprehensive and up-to-date tips on eating – and living -- healthy:
Michelle Obama has dedicated her issue advocacy as America’s First Lady toward solving the childhood obesity problem. Even the World Health Organization has pronounced childhood obesity one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century. Concerns about heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea and social discrimination are among some of the most serious consequences of the obesity epidemic, making it worthy of Obama’s high profile “Let’s Move” initiative.
“What Does the Science Say?” The Answer May Depend on Who Is Funding the Science
Consumers are often advised to ignore the misinformation they find on the Internet and instead look to what “the science” says. But interpreting science can be tricky business. In 1954, the book How to Lie with Statistics famously cautioned our “fact-minded culture” that statistics can “sensationalize, inflate, confuse, and oversimplify.” Other writers remind us that science is not neutral but “is made by people with interests, intentions, and ambitions; and…funded by governments and companies with agendas.”
It would probably surprise few people to hear that food allergies are increasingly common in U.S. children and around the world. According to one public health website, food allergies in children aged 0-17 in the U.S. increased by 50% from 1997 to 2011.
Immunologists survey the research and it’s not reassuring
Add one more item to the growing stack of published medical literature linking vaccines to the current explosion of autoimmune diseases from skin afflictions to neurological disorders. A paper published online this month in the journal Pharmacological Research is an international team of immunologists’ roundup of current findings on vaccine-induced disease -- and their conclusions are in sharp contrast to public health’s “safe and effective” mantra that denies any such connection.
For many years, the US government and mainstream media have continued to blame the unvaccinated community for the spread of infectious disease. We are constantly being bombarded with statements like the one written by Philip Ross and published in the International Business Times, which stated:
