Keeping up the questions on vaccination is crucial for our children.

I think with an industry as profitable as vaccines and as controversial it will be a long time before results are definitive in any real sense. Questions will continue to be asked, as they should.

None of the evidence presented for or against makes for a cut and dried case.

And it would be very foolish to take the view that a clear link between vaccination and autism has not been established and so vaccines are safe. The autism/vaccination link may not be clear at this point, although one must question the integrity of the research given how much prestige and profit are involved, but autism is just one worrying aspect potentially linked to vaccination - massive increases in chronic and serious disease in children and dramatic rise in behavioural and learning difficulties. Why?

In some ways the autism issue is a distraction from the big picture, something which science/medicine is never good at anyway. And with numerous books and articles written in recent years on the unrealiability if not outright bias and corruption in science, questioning the system has become even more important.

It has become increasingly clear in recent years that the scientific method cannot be relied upon, particularly where profit and prestige are involved.

If I had to bet I would still put my money on parent's intuition before so-called scientific evidence - paid for by vested interests in the main - and doctors still largely agree, if there is a bottom line, you can bet the parents are most likely to be right.

As this article touches upon:

Excerpt:  Sue Swedo, MD, chief of the pediatric and developmental neuropsychiatry branch of the National Institute of Mental Health, says federal researchers have not closed the door to looking at whether vaccination might, in rare cases, be linked to autism.

The strongest case for a link comes from children with regressive autism -- children who seem to be developing normally, but who then lose the social and language skills they had developed and slide into autism. To parents, such children seem to have been the victims of some environmental toxin. As this regression occurs at the same time children receive multiple vaccines, many wonder whether vaccines might carry such a toxin.

I was asked to write a paper on some of the newer mechanisms of vaccine damage to the nervous system, but in the interim I came across an incredible document that should blow the lid off the cover-up being engineered by the pharmaceutical companies in conjunction with powerful governmental agencies.

It all started when a friend of mind sent me a copy of a letter from Congressman David Weldon, M.D. to the director of the CDC, Dr Julie L. Gerberding, in which he alludes to a study by a Doctor Thomas Verstraeten, then representing the CDC, on the connection between infant exposure to thimerosal-containing vaccines and neurodevelopmental injury. In this shocking letter Congressman Weldon referrers to Dr. Verstraeten's study which looked at the data from the Vaccine Safety Datalink and found a significant correlation between thimerosal exposure via vaccines and several neurodevelopmental disorders including tics, speech and language delays, and possibly to ADD.

Congressman Weldon questions the CDC director as to why, following this meeting, Dr. Verstraeten published his results, almost four years later, in the journal Pediatrics to show just the opposite, that is, that there was no correlation to any neurodevelopmental problems related to thimerosal exposure in infants. In this letter, Congressman Weldon refers to a report of the minutes of this meeting held in Georgia, which exposes some incredible statements by the "experts" making up this study group. The group's purpose was to evaluate and discuss Dr. Verstraeten's results and data and make recommendation that would eventually lead to possible alterations in the existing vaccine policy.

Dr. Blaylock is a board certified neurosurgeon, author and lecturer. He attended the LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans and completed his general surgical internship and neurosurgical residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. During his residency he ran the neurology program for one year and did a fellowship in neurosurgery after his residency. For the past 25 years he has practiced neurosurgery in addition to having a nutritional practice. He recently retired from both practices to devote full time to nutritional studies and research.
