"Perhaps we now have the putative link between vaccination and ASD, the link being the inclusion of an aluminum adjuvant in the vaccine."
The evidence establishing a potential link between aluminum in vaccines and autism has become so prevalent that it is now being reported in the mainstream corporate media. The most recent study conducted by Keele University, published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, provides the strongest indication yet that aluminum is a cause of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
The new research found that autistic children have up to 10 times more aluminum in their brains than what is considered safe in adults. The study notes that the aluminum is crossing the blood-brain membrane and accumulating in cells involved in maintaining a constant internal environment such as temperature.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Aluminum is present in U.S. childhood vaccines that prevent hepatitis A, hepatitis B, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTaP, Tdap), Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), human papillomavirus (HPV) and pneumococcus infection.
This aluminum is added, according to the CDC, " to increase the body's immune response to the vaccine."
