When Dominic was 13 months old we went to the doctor’s office to get him vaccinated. Although he was already walking, he preferred to hold furniture and was playing at a Thomas the Train table in the office. Suddenly he stopped playing and walked all the way across the lobby unassisted to a little blonde girl. He reached up with his hands to hold her cheeks and pull her in for a kiss on the lips and said, “Hi.” The other parents, the nurses and receptionist all giggled and laughed and cheered at how cute it was. That was Dominic 100%: he played with the children at daycare, was very social, and waved at everyone. We had our visit where he aced his developmental test, got his shots – the MMR, Varicella, PCV, and Hib – and we went home.
He screamed and screamed and spiked a 105 fever. His pediatrician’s office said he will be fine – just give him Tylenol. Hours later it was no better, the fever barely budged then came right back. I called again and was told no need to come in just keep giving him Tylenol. He didn’t speak another word after that day. He wasn’t the same happy, smiling baby he was before, but having just been through a stressful couple of days I thought he would be ok and kept trying not to worry like the nurses were telling me.

Scientists Find Chronic Brain Inflammation in Children With Autism
The concept that chronic inflammation is one of the hallmarks of ASD is not new. In 2013, the Journal of Neuroinflammation published an article stated that, “Increasing evidence indicates that brain inflammation is involved in the pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric diseases,” including ASD.
Pointing out that many children with ASD “regress at about age 3 years, often after a specific event such as reaction to vaccination, infection, trauma, toxic exposures, or stress,” the authors of that article go on to discuss increasing evidence of immune dysfunction/inflammation in ASD and to detail multiple markers of inflammation in the brains and cerebral spinal fluid of children with ASD.
Prenatal Tetanus, Diphtheria,Acellular Pertussis Vaccination and Autism Spectrum Disorder
increased risk of lower birthweight
increased risk of preterm birth
hard selection against males
increased risk of gestational diabetes
increased risk of gestational hypertension
earlier need for prenatal care
VLA COMMENT: First it was the flu shot despite Dr. Gary Goldman’s study that there was an increase of fetal death reports by 4,250%. CDC recommends pregnant women get the whooping cough vaccine between 27 and 36 weeks of each pregnancy, preferably during the earlier part of this time period. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American College of Nurse-Midwives support this recommendation.
Invitro vaccine recomendations:
Some doctors may hesitate to immunize pregnant women, but the committee assures us this is due to the possibility for congenital anomalies or spontaneous abortions being falsely attributed to the vaccination. There are very few vaccinations contraindicated during pregnancy , and in some cases the benefits of the vaccination outweigh the risks. This is especially true in instances of military service or travel to countries where a disease is highly prevalent, occupations that present risks for exposure to a disease, and those who are immuno-compromised or chronically ill.

The article in the Journal of Immunotoxicology is entitled Theoretical Aspects of Autism: Causes-A Review Theoretical aspects of autism Causes A review The author is Helen Ratajczak, surprisingly herself a former senior scientist at a pharmaceutical firm. Ratajczak did what nobody else apparently has bothered to do: she reviewed the body of published science since autism was first described in 1943. Not just one theory suggested by research such as the role of MMR shots, or the mercury preservative thimerosal; but all of them.
HUMAN DNA IN VACCINES (EXCERPT)
That DNA is incorporated into the host DNA. Now it’s changed, altered self and body kills it. Where is this most expressed? The neurons of the brain. Now you have body killing the brain cells and it’s an ongoing inflammation. It doesn’t stop, it continues through the life of that individual.”
Basically, what Dr. Patterson is saying is that if a pregnant mother gets sick (virus, bacteria) while pregnant — an event that “activates” her immune system — that activation can impact the neurodevelopment (how exactly the brain is constructed) of her fetus, potentially leading to neurological problems after birth. Dr. Patterson took this explanation a step further, explaining that the brains of people with autism reflect the immune system activation that took place, even decades later, as he cites valuable work being done at Johns Hopkins.

VLA COMMENT: JB Handley (founder of Generation Rescue) goes on discuss how the Aluminum Adjuvant in the vaccines activates the immune system having an impact on the neurodevelopment of the growing child.
