(NaturalHealth365) For years, there has been a debate regarding mercury in vaccines and whether it can set the stage for autism plus many other health-related disorders. Of course, studies conducted on behalf of the pharmaceutical companies report that mercury is “safe” while studies conducted by others (without a vested interest) find that heavy metals injected into the body can be dangerous. Based on backlash from parents, mercury was eliminated from many vaccines and replaced with aluminum.
Unfortunately, in essence, one toxic metal was swapped out for another.
Does aluminum threaten the health of our brain?
A paper published in Immunologic Research examined the neurotoxicity of aluminum in humans and animals. Researchers found that in adults, aluminum exposure can lead to age-related neurological deficits resembling Alzheimer’s. In an attempt to see if the Gulf War Syndrome was linked to aluminum, researchers injected animals with the aluminum adjuvants and found a link between the two as well as an ALS phenotype.
In young children, researchers found a highly significant correlation between the number of aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines administered and the rate of autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
There has been speculation on the link between autism and aluminum for several years as the rate in autism did not decrease. In 2011, the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry published results that stated:
1. Children from countries with the highest ASD prevalence appear to have the highest exposure to aluminum from vaccines.
2. The increase in exposure to aluminum adjuvants significantly correlates with the increase in ASD prevalence in the United States observed over the last two decades.
3. A significant correlation exists between the amounts of aluminum administered to preschool children and the current prevalence of ASD in seven Western countries, particularly at 3-4 months of age.
The researchers stated a more rigorous evaluation of aluminum adjuvant safety was warranted.
In the journal Lupus researchers stated research that evidence demonstrates that increasing concerns about current vaccination practices may indeed be warranted. Because children may be most at risk of vaccine-induced complications, a rigorous evaluation of the vaccine-related adverse health impacts in the pediatric population is urgently needed.
According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, safety assessments for vaccines have often not included appropriate toxicity studies because vaccines have not been viewed as inherently toxic.
Entropy published a paper discussing autism states that autism steadily increased when mercury in vaccines was decreased and aluminum in vaccines increased. The researchers suggest that children with the autism diagnosis are especially vulnerable to toxic metals such as aluminum and mercury due to insufficient serum sulfate and glutathione.
In addition, to the link between autism and aluminum, the researchers went on to say that a strong correlation between autism and the MMR vaccine was also observed, which they believe can be partially explained due to children with autism having an increased sensitivity to acetaminophen often administered to control fever when the MMR vaccine is given.
Detoxing from aluminum
Any detoxification program for our children should be done under supervision from a qualified health practitioner. Something you can do on your own to help support the detoxification process is giving your children pure, organic foods that do not burden their bodies with additional chemicals.
I highly recommend CEASE therapy as it is a detoxification process that was invented by Tinus Smits, MD. He helped over 300 children with autism detoxify and either recover or make significant process. CEASE utilizes homeopathy along with molecular medicine to detox and bring balance to the body.
