VLA COMMENT: I may be showing my ignorance with all the great books on Autism and science, but this is perhaps the best damn article I have read on the history of the fraudulent Vaccine Court to the detriment of thousand and thousands of children and families in distress taking care of their Autistic children without compensation and help.
EXCERPT ON ALUMINUM
Either by oral ingestion as salt or as an adjuvant, Al exposure may
induce the dysfunction or activation of glial cells that are important in
maintaining the homeostasis of the CNS and in neurodevelopment
(Morris et al., 2017). Furthermore, Al can induce the activation of
microglia to produce TNF-α, IL-6, iNOS, NOS-2, neuroinflammatory
PICs and ROS (Zaky et al., 2013). The microglia may govern the regulation
of neurogenesis and neurodevelopmental factors and interfere
with synaptic pruning and with the proliferation of neurons, which in
turn, may lead to the development of ASD (Kettenmann et al., 2013;
Edmonson et al., 2016; Hoeijmakers et al., 2016).
Background: Although the association of the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine
with autism spectrum disorder has been convincingly disproven, the onset of certain
brain-related autoimmune and inflammatory disorders has been found to be temporally
associated with the antecedent administration of various vaccines. This study examines
whether antecedent vaccinations are associated with increased incidence of obsessive–
compulsive disorder (OCD), anorexia nervosa (AN), anxiety disorder, chronic tic disorder,
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder ina national sample of privately insured children.
Russian researchers, together with their foreign colleagues, have demonstrated that environmental metal and metalloid pollution (lead, mercury, aluminum, and arsenic) may induce autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), and have considered possible mechanisms of exposure to these substances. The study may be useful for the prevention and therapy of ASD. The article is published in the journal Environmental Research.
