First, in 1986 Congress passed a law which prohibits people from ever suing vaccine makers. It's called indemnification. Since then, the number of vaccines on the schedule began to rise dramatically and tripled by the late 1990s. It's an interesting coincidence now that there is no liability for harming people who get vaccinated. The law also established a new vaccine court to handle cases of inevitable vaccine injury to children. The public pays this expense via taxes on the vaccine. The vaccine maker is completely freed from financial risk.
Second, vaccine safety testing involves only one vaccine and lasts a minimum number of days. Adverse vaccine events related to a single vaccine are recorded for less than a week. Many side effects can take weeks, months, and even years to manifest. This doesn't give enough time for an effective evaluation to be done since long-term side effects cannot be seen in such a short period of time. Any synergistic effects associated with giving multiple doses of vaccines at one time or the cumulative effect of multiple vaccinations are never investigated. Education is not provided on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), so doctors and the public are unaware of it. Less than one percent of injuries are captured by the system.
Third, as more and more parents began to report regression in their children after vaccine appointments in the 1990s, the CDC responded by publishing studies meant to negate concerns. The CDC pushed back with epidemiological studies looking at only one ingredient (thimerosal/mercury). 37 other vaccine ingredients were never studied. CDC scientists also compared children who received some mercury in their vaccines to children who received only slightly less mercury to prove vaccines don't cause autism and that the entire vaccine schedule was safe. This is fake/fraudulent science. The CDC's star research scientist, Danish Dr. Paul Thorsen, was fired from his position at Aarhus University in 2009 after stealing $1 million in CDC grant money. His flagrantly unscientific findings were debunked in 2013, but the CDC continues to refer to his original studies as justification for using thimerosal in vaccines.
Fourth, British doctor Andrew Wakefield raised concerns about the MMR vaccine in 1998, recommending further study. The media frenzy resulted in the British version of the AMA revoking his medical license and destroying his reputation. Eight years later, Dr. Wakefield produced a documentary, Vaxxed, about Dr. William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower who confessed to fraud in the CDC 2004 study on MMR which fully vindicated Dr. Wakefield. Dr. William Thompson was blocked from testifying before Congress. The term "Wakefielded" is now used to describe any scientist whose career is destroyed by fighting against Big Pharma.
Fifth, the brains of autistic persons were studied for the first time. Dr. Carlos Pardo-Villamizar found that they were in a constant state of inflammation.
Sixth, in 2007 Dr. Paul Patterson discovered the biological cause of autism. He called it an immune activation event which occurs at critical phases of brain development in growing children. This makes the connection very clear, as vaccines are actually designed to cause immune activation events.
Seventh, lawyers discovered that the vaccine court has been awarding injuries on the basis that autism can be caused by vaccines. After Hannah Poling's case is publicly leaked, lawyers unearth more than 80 additional cases of court-awarded damages to families whose children experienced regressive autism following their vaccinations.
Eighth, international scientists study the neurological risks of exposure to aluminum. This is the vaccine adjuvant meant to stir up the immune system and create an immune activation event. The mechanisms for how aluminum crosses the blood-brain barrier by riding as a trojan horse in macrophages is demonstrated repeatedly. In 2017, Professor Christopher Exley discovers shockingly high levels of aluminum in the brains of people with autism.
Ninth, in 2017 the CDC releases the latest autism figures: 1 in 36 children are being diagnosed with autism. In 1970 the autism rate was 1 in 10,000. In 2004, the rate was 1 in 150. It continues to skyrocket and the CDC has no official explanation.
Tenth, two of the most important expert witnesses in vaccine court were Dr. Andrew Zimmerman and Dr. Richard Kelley. The government relied on them to prove their case that vaccines did not cause autism. In 2018 they both switched to the other side. They testifed on behalf of the Yates Hazlehurst family that Yate's autism was caused by vaccines. If they had voiced this opinion in 2009, 5,500 families would likely have won their case in vaccine court as part of the Omnibus Autism Proceedings (OAP). Unfortunately, they didn't change their opinions until 2018 and the families lost their claims in 2009. Dr. Zimmerman now states that many of his colleagues share his view that vaccines can trigger autism if there is mitochondrial dysfunction. This condition is something Dr. Kelley estimates is true for 25 to 50 percent of children with autism.
Why are parents with autistic children still fighting this battle? It's a tragedy. Only Big Pharma, with the help of government agencies and mainstream media under their influence, can keep the false narrative going. It's time to listen to the truth.
