Report cites prevalence of high-fructose corn syrup in US diet as possible contributor to alarming epidemic

– Common Dreams staff

A new study by Clinical Epigenetics, a peer-reviewed journal that focuses largely on diseases, has found that the rise in autism in the United States could be linked to the industrial food system, specifically the prevalence of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in the American diet. The study, published yesterday online, explores how mineral deficiencies could impact how the human body rids itself of common toxic chemicals like mercury and pesticides. The report comes just after a different report, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, documented a startling rise in autism in the United States.

Sixth Study in Recent Months Linking Mercury in Flu Shots to Brain Damage, Autism

March 29, 2011 Comments off

The toxic effects of the mercury, also known in vaccines as Thimerosal, have once again been confirmed, this time by researchers from the University of Brazil. Marking the sixth major study in recent months to condemn the use of mercury in medicine, the new study reveals that mercury causes serious brain damage, and is linked to autism and other developmental diseases in children and Alzheimer’s disease in adults.

Dr. Jose Dorea and his colleagues conducted an extensive, peer-reviewed analysis of various studies and available information in major databases that address the effects of low-dose Thimerosal, or ethylmercury, on neural tissue and behavior. They found conclusively that Thimerosal accumulates in brain tissue, negatively affects brain development, and harms brain cells.

“Mercury is known to cause serious harm, especially to fetuses and children because of their Read more…

60 Lab Studies Now Confirm Cancer Link to a Vaccine You Probably Had as a Child

By Dr. Mercola
Dr. Maurice Hilleman made astounding revelations in an interview that was cut from The Health Century — the admission that Merck drug company vaccines had been injecting dangerous viruses into people worldwide.

Bear in mind that Dr. Hilleman was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program. He developed over three dozen vaccines, more than any other scientist in history. He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society. He received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization. Hilleman was one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.

Vaccine/ Autism Link is Not Fraud

Do You Know What You’re Injecting into Your Child?

Takeaways

  • Not all vaccines are thimerosal-free.
  • The ingredients may concern pro-lifers, vegetarians, and vegans.
  • Vaccines contain chemicals recognized as hazardous and poisonous.
Are you thinking about vaccination? The debate over childhood vaccinations rages on parenting forums everywhere. Should you vax, or shouldn’t you? We all have our own opinions on whether to inoculate babies and children. When making the decision, it is important that you educate yourself rather than relying on the doctors and nurses to take the time to do it. There is so much to consider when choosing whether to vaccinate your child or not. It is surprising how little those who are for inoculations know about their ingredients. When I did my research on the ingredients of vaccines, what I found was shocking!
Many vaccines do contain live viruses. This includes the MMR and all shots for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. The rotavirus vaccine, RotaTeq, also contains several live rotavirus strains form both humans and monkeys. Polio vaccines contain several types of inactivated polio virus. The Hepatitis A vaccine contains that strain of the hepatitis virus. Other vaccines contain fragments of viruses, such as polysaccharides or toxoids, or weakened viruses. Flu shots contain influenza virus. The HiB has haemophilus influenza bacteria in it. Viruses are often ‘weakened’ or ‘inactivated’ with formaldehyde, but as its effect is temporary, these viruses can revert back to full strength.
Trace amounts of the mediums in which vaccines are cultured can be found in them as well. For example, flu shots and mumps vaxes are made in chicken eggs, hence the reason those with egg sensitivity may be allergic to them. Some are made with genetically altered yeast. Polio inoculations are created in monkey kidney cells. Hepatitis A, RotaTeq, Varicella (chickenpox), Rubella, and Mumps vaccines are cultured in human diploid cells that come from aborted human fetal tissue, as in a dead baby–the lungs to be exact. That’s the freaky truth.
Ammonium sulfate can be found in the DTaP, DPT, HiB vaccines, all of which are routinely given to babies. Ammonium is basically positively charged ammonia. Ammonia is found in urine and used in household cleaning products, the source of that strong odor. It is toxic when inhaled. Sulfate is a salt of sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid is used in ore processing, fertilizer manufacturing, oil refining, and wastewater processing. It comes from sulfur, obviously, which is used in gunpowder and insecticides. Sulfur also has a very distinct, disgusting smell. Ammonium sulfate may be a gastrointestinal, liver, respiratory, and neurological toxicant. Read more…
