Comorbid Disorders: All that autism is right now - is a label; it is given based upon expert clinical observation and testing. Autism is NOT associated with known physical cause. The autism label defines a condition evidenced by clinically exhibited features, of deficits and excesses that are present - but without verifiable cause. Autism is many times accompanied by conditions that have a medically identifiable cause. An incomplete sample of the conditions are; mitochondrial disease or disorder, seizures, phenylkentonuria, congenital rubella, tuberous sclerosis, hypothyroidism, and hearing impairment.
There are autism affected children who have comorbid disorders that are associated with probability of damage from vaccination, and peer review does accept instances where vaccination is the cause for devastating neurological illness. That is why vaccination courts are in place - they allow families some recourse. There have been cases that have prevailed to do with vaccination injury that resulted in brain damage.
Comorbid disorders (such as the ones previously mentioned) which accompany autism - are actually the biggest clue to finding out why the child exhibits features that cause them to be labled with what is merely a psychiatric label, autism.
Missed-Diagnosis, The "Herd" & Known Risks: Autism, in and of itself, IS a kind of missed-diagnosis because we DO NOT know what causes exhibition of autistic features. Furthermore, the autism label seems to be - becoming a type of confusing smoke screen; one in which those in the medical community use in too general a fashion, in order to deny the known risk of injury from vaccination. There are risks involved, however the medical community has made a choice to allow a few to fall into devastating illness so that the many might never be exposed to certain illnesses. It is the "herd's" overall wellness that is emphasized. For the "herd" - opting out of vaccination has always been considered reasonable under conditions where known predispositions to increased risk are present.
MMR does present known and theoretical risk. Contains albumin; theoretical risk of transmission of CJD and viral diseases. (link) The statement is on drugs.com. Other indications are given, as far as reasons for opting out of the MMR vaccination.
Vaccination Cell Lines & Productive Infection: The most current research with regard to neurological illness (in general) indicate that understandings are growing exponentially, and the results that many experts are coming up with show us that all the various neurological illnesses might have a lot in common - even though the they are recognized by many differing names. We hardly know everything there is to know about autism and the other neurological illnesses, and we do not know everything about the implications behind vaccinations. Some have considered the continuing alterations and manipulations of the cell lines being developed in order to produce vaccinations. Cell lines utilize fetal material from abortion and thus, residual DNA from that fetal material is in vaccination cell lines.
Designer Cells as Substrates for the Manufacture of Viral Vaccines, a report on designer cells utilized for development of vaccines (an FDA initiated report), considers overall productive infection as a risk consideration - not just infection that results in cancer.
...residual DNA has the potential, upon inoculation into the vaccine recipient, to produce infectious virus from this DNA and thus establish a productive infection.
To complicate things a bit further when infection is considered. Researchers have established a link between HIV and Creutzfeldt-Jakob (CJD) and the onset of dementia. In turn, dementia is proposed to have a number of possible causes including infectious viruses, bacteria, disease-carrying parasites and fungi. The Center For Prions and Protein Folding Diseases in Alberta finds that... there may be common factors between prion diseases and other human diseases such as autism and Alzheimer’s. So, do vaccinations present increased risk of detrimental infection that results in neurological illness for some?
What's Up With Constant Wakefield Regurgitations? Enough already about the Wakefield thing, there are other things to consider. With Designer Cells as Substrates for the Manufacture of Viral Vaccines' concern focused upon productive infection introduction that might result via inoculation, it appears important to continue in endeavors to assess risks in vaccination utilization. Why is it that the Wakefield story trumps much of the media attention when new, provocative research is emerging?
Whether it is reported by mainstream media or not, risk assessment - with regard to the cell lines that are utilized in order to produce vaccinations - is always at play behind the scenes. According to the aforementioned government initiated report, assessing risks of DNA residual presence in vaccines requires some absolute knowledge with regard to the amount of residual DNA being delivered via inoculation; that absolute number allows for understanding with regard to the probable amount of infectious agent being introduced. Keeping DNA residuals at 10ng or below is constantly emphasized in the report, but the report also acknowledges that there is no mechanism in place to enforce the standard - it is left to those who produce vaccines to practice diligence. What is not known, is if the manufacturers of vaccines have historically practiced due diligence by testing for amounts of residual DNA present in their products.
A most recent GlaxoSmithKline whistleblower story assures me that due dillegence is not always first and foremost...(Link to CBS)
(From CBS) There was reason to believe that some of the medications were contaminated with bacteria, others were mislabeled, and some were too strong or not strong enough. It's likely Glaxo would have gotten away with it had it not been for a company insider: a tip from Cheryl Eckard set off a major federal investigation.
The reality exists, that more needs to be known with regard to the absolute safety of vaccinations. It is not even a stretch when one suggests that there are children who have been labeled with autism, and also have a comorbid disorder that can be linked to vaccination damage. Individuals who have the autism label, but also have one or more comorbid disorders that are identified via medical diagnostics, should focus on diagnostic evidence supplied by the comorbid disorders.
When autism is emphasized in the vaccination safety debate, the emphasis is predictably followed by a reporter's knowledge of the fact that mercury-based thimerosalhas been discredited as a causative factor with regard to possible vaccination damage - in cases of autism. The lone (mercury) point hardly addresses the vaccination safety discussion in a comprehensive manner. In almost every case those who discredit vaccination safety concerns due to the recent findings on mercury based thimersal have not attempted to elucidate with regard to all of the existing known risks of vaccinations - and what those risks might imply.
How curious it is that so many experts perceive autism to be a neurological illness, but the medical community and vaccine manufacturers can simply say they did not cause autism because medical diagnostics do not yet perceive the exact neurological deficits that contribute to the presentation of autistic features. Medical diagnostics obviously existed for the 1300 cases of vaccine related brain damage that were compensated for in court over the past two decades. Wonder how many of those cases involved children who, in addition to having conditions with known medical cause, also had the label of autism?
I am just a mom who likes to write. I have a daughter who gives me lots to write about. Her biography is available at no cost on scribd. It is called Hello Dr. Wells. It is a chronicle, not a conclusion. We still don't know how it will end! In spite of how the biography ends - Sarah is doing pretty great at this point and soon it will be time to add to the biography.
