Scientists from University of Keele, and King’s College of London Report on “Aluminium in brain tissue in autism.”

Scientists from University of Keele, and King’s College of London Report on “Aluminium in brain tissue in autism.”
For the first time, scientists report on aluminum in brain tissue from donors who died with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. They have measured aluminum in brain tissue in autism and identified the location of aluminum in these tissues.
These findings are troubling, since many vaccines contain aluminum (Al) adjuvants – typically Al hydroxide and/or Al phosphate nano particles.
“These are some of the highest values for aluminium in human brain tissue yet recorded and one has to question why, for example, the aluminium content of the occipital lobe of a 15 year old boy would be 8.74 (11.59) μg/g dry wt.?” – Mold Matthew, Umar Dorcas, King Andrew, Exley Christopher.

“The research does not infer that Al is a cause of autism, “said Exley, who also authored Human Exposure to Aluminum. “But these very high concentrations of a neurotoxin in brain tissue are not going to be benign and will contribute to neurodegeneration in affected tissues.” Read more at :  The Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute

The Vaccine Safety Project – Presentation

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s  comprehensive PowerPoint presentation and companion video reviews the process of vaccine approvals, recommendations, post-marketing safety monitoring and concludes with necessary recommendations for improving vaccine safety and protecting our children from vaccine injuries. We hope this presentation will be used by parents and vaccine safety advocates as a tool to educate local policy makers, state and federal legislators and public health officials who need to know the facts about our federal vaccine programs, vaccine safety and the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

January 17, 2017: US Dept of Health and Human Services Announces Final Rule Making Changes to Vaccine Injury Table

To gain entitlement to compensation under this program, a petitioner must establish that a vaccine-related injury or death has occurred, either by proving that a vaccine actually caused or significantly aggravated an injury (causation-in-fact) or by demonstrating the occurrence of what is referred to as a ‘‘Table Injury.’’ That is, a petitioner may show that the vaccine recipient suffered an injury of the type enumerated in the regulations at 42 CFR 100.3—the ‘‘Vaccine Injury Table’’— corresponding to the vaccination in question and that the onset of such injury took place within a time period also specified in the Table. If so, the injury is presumed to have been caused by the vaccination and the petitioner is entitled to compensation (assuming that other requirements are satisfied) unless the Respondent affirmatively shows that the injury was caused by some factor other than the vaccination (see 42 U.S.C. 300aa–11(c)(1)(C)(i), 300aa–13(a)(1)(B)), and 300aa–14(a)).“- Federal Register

Censorship: Is this a “settled issue”?

vaxxed-now showingVaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe

Synopsis – In 2013, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism.

The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over several months, Dr. Hooker records the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provides the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC.

Dr. Hooker enlists the help of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely accused of starting the anti-vax movement when he first reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine may cause autism. In his ongoing effort to advocate for children’s health, Wakefield directs this documentary examining the evidence behind an appalling cover-up committed by the government agency charged with protecting the health of American citizens.

Interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children reveal an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.

Below are links to the official complaint letters sent to the CDC.

Did you know that in 2016 your parental right to medical decision making will be restricted by the State? Passed in 2015, Act 37  removes a parent’s right to have a “philosophical conviction” opposing state-mandated child vaccination, effective July 2016.

For now, the law keeps a “religious exemption” intact. However, a bill has already been introduced to do away with all non-medical exemptions in VT (see: H.212). Lobbyists say that this bill to remove the religious exemption will not be touched during an election year. Are you willing to wait and see?

Act 37 was not fully vetted by lawmakers because it was the result of a “sneak amendment” orchestrated by the American Academy of Pediatrics and pharmaceutical interests. In just one month, the industry managed to attach major vaccine policy changes to another bill that had already passed the house and even switched committees in the process. The new law was signed by the Governor Peter Shumlin on May 28, 2015 and includes a report to be made to the legislature on feasibility of mandatory vaccination for school staff. Teachers, administrators and janitors take note: H266, a bill to require mandatory vaccination for school teachers and administrators, has already been introduced.

There are many elements to the new mandatory vaccine law (Act 37),  effective July 2016. Click here for a detailed overview.

Also, “rulemaking” is going on now at the Health Department and there is a public comment period open through Dec. 2nd. Click here for a detailed overview of the proposed rule that is supposed to implement the new law. File a comment, here.

Citizens have been told by David Englander, Attorney for the DOH that, “Shortly after the conclusion of the public comment period the Department will file the final proposed rule, including any revisions based on public comment and a response to all issues raised during the public comment period, with the Secretary of State’s Office (SOS) and the Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (LCAR). Members of the public can testify in favor of or against the rule when LCAR meets to consider the rule. For information about the day and time this rule will be considered at LCAR and how to testify at LCAR contact Katie Pickens at [email protected] or (802) 828-5760.”
File a comment, here.

It is critical that your elected lawmakers hear from families and schools that will be impacted by the new law, because they have been told there will be no fiscal/economic impact. Lawmakers need to know that there is indeed an impact on families schools – and this is our chance to speak up.

Proposed Rules Call for:

– 7 vaccines – 5 shots – by age 2 months
– 14 vaccines – 10 shots – by age 4 months
– 21 vaccines – 15 shots – by age 6 to 14 months
– 25 vaccines – 17 shots – by age 15 to 18 months
– 28 vaccines – 18 shots – by age 18 months

– Plus:
—Penalties for school administrators and childcare providers who do not enforce compliance.
— Includes All schools – including independent schools and colleges, for just one class enrolled (so may affect homeschoolers).
– The State program manager says 9 vaccines in one day would be fine so that babies can get “caught up.”
– The State spent $16,424,373 on vaccines in FY2015. It is one thing to be forced to pay for vaccines – quite another to be forced to take them$File/2014-10-15%20VVPP%20budget%20and%20assessment%20worksheets%20%28VVPP2015%29%20v6.pdf-
– New law proposed to require mandatory vaccination for teachers, too! See H266:!teachers/c20x3

The following persons in VT will be affected by Act 37 :Screen shot 2015-11-25 at 12.15.10 PM

  • parents.
  • children enrolled in a child care facility or pre-kindergarten.
  • students enrolled in kindergarten. elementary school, secondary school.
  • students in post-secondary school.
  • health care providers.
  • child care and school administrators.

Act 37  is 19 pages long and has several components you must know about:

  • Requires reports to the Dept. of Health when a person has reason to believe another person is sick – shall tattle within 24 hours (see section 2 on 18 VSA sec 1001).
  • Requires all schools to make publicly available aggregate vaccination rates of the student body to all parents and students (see section 3 which amends 18 VSA sec 1121).
  • Removes the right of parents and/or students to hold philosophical beliefs in opposition to the State’s universal list of mandatory vaccinations listed as required for daycare, pre-K, K, and all schools (public, private, independent, primary, secondary, post-secondary) (see section 4 which amends 18 VSA sec 1122).
  • Requires the Dept. of Health to adopt rules together with the Agency of Education and Dept. of Children and Families that shall LIST which vaccine doses will be required for Vermont schools (see section 5 which amends 18 VSA sec 1123).
  • Collection and reporting of data on chid vaccination status in 1st and 8th grades (see section 6 which amends 18 VSA sec 1124).
  • Grant the Dept. of Health the power to implement “quality improvement intitiatives” at any school that has a vaccination rate below “the average” (see section 7 which adds 18 VSA sec 1125).
  • Requires the participation of all Vermont residents in a Mandatory vaccination registry (adults and children) with no opt-out or penalty for violation of privacy and allowance for any researcher with IRB approval to have access to these records (see section 8 which amends 18 VSA sec 1129).
  • Establishes an advisory council on vaccination practice – there is no public membership or dissenting member (see section 9 which adds 18 VSA sec 1131).
  • Makes VAERS reporting mandatory for all healthcare providers (see section 10 which adds 18 VSA sec 1132).
  • Sets up a committee to look at the legality of making mandatory vaccinations required for all school administrators, faculty and personnel (see section 11).
  • Effective: July 2015 except sections 4 and 6 (see section 12).

The Dept. of Health has begun to set forth how they envision this law to be enforced. Their draft proposal includes an intensive and complicated vaccine schedule which mandates all CDC recommended vaccines within 2 years of recommendation and imposes penalties on daycare and school administrators who do not exclude children if these children are not in compliance with a new law.  You can read their draft proposal, which is incomplete, here.

This update is by no means an exhaustive analysis of the new law or the rules being proposed. Please read the new law for yourself and if you have comments or concerns about Act 37 or how it is being implemented, please send them ASAP to:
