9 Questions That Stump Every

Pro-Vaccine Advocate and Their Claims

Lire en Français

Since the flu pandemic was declared, there have been several so-called “vaccine experts” coming out of the wood work attempting to justify the effectiveness of vaccines. All of them parrot the same ridiculous historical and pseudoscientific perspectives of vaccinations which are easily squelched with the following 9 questions.

Claim: The study of vaccines, their historical record of achievements, effectiveness, safety and mechanism in humans are well understood and proven in scientific and medical circles.

Fact: The claim is completely false.

1. What to ask: Could you please provide one double-blind, placebo-controlled study that can prove the safety and effectiveness of vaccines?

2. What to ask: Could you please provide scientific evidence on ANY study which can confirm the long-term safety and effectiveness of vaccines?

3. What to ask: Could you please provide scientific evidence which can prove that disease reduction in any part of the world, at any point in history was attributable to inoculation of populations?

4. What to ask: Could you please explain how the safety and mechanism of vaccines in the human body are scientifically proven if their pharmacokinetics (the study of bodily absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of ingredients) are never examined

or analyzed in any vaccine study?

Mercury concentration in ambient air and the risk of autism

Appollo Beach power plant 01432

Ecologic studies of the spatial relationship between disease and sources of environmental contamination can help to ascertain the degree of risk to populations from contamination and to inform legislation to ameliorate the risk.

Population risks associated with persistent low-level mercury exposure have recently begun to be of concern and current reports implicate environmental mercury as a potential contributor in the etiology of various developmental and neurodegenerative diseases including autism and Alzheimer’s disease.

In this demonstration of preliminary findings, we demonstrate for Bexar County Texas and Santa Clara County California, the hypothesis that the spatial structure of the occurrence of autism has a positive co-variation with the spatial structure of the distribution of mercury in ambient air.

The relative risk of autism is greater in the geographic areas of higher levels of ambient mercury.

We find that the higher levels of ambient mercury are geographically associated with point sources of mercury emission, such as coal-fired power plants and cement plants with coal-fired kilns. Although this does not indicate a cause, these results should not be dismissed, but rather seen as a preliminary step for generating a hypothesis for further investigation.

Current science recognizes the fallacy in the theory of macro-evolution.  You will not find it touted as fact in academic circles the way you do in public primary schools and even in the media.

Similarly science is finding the connection between Autism Spectrum Disorders  (and other developmental delays) and environmental assaults like heavy metals.  The debate connecting heavy metal toxicity and Autism is ongoing, not because of lack of research, but because of politics.

Children’s Environmental Health Center (CEHC) at Mount Sinai School of Medicine developed the list of ten chemicals found in consumer products that are suspected to contribute to autism and learning disabilities to guide a research strategy to discover potentially preventable environmental causes. The top ten chemicals are:

1.Lead

2.Methylmercury

3.PCBs

4.Organophosphate pesticides

5.Organochlorine pesticides

6.Endocrine disruptors

7.Automotive exhaust

8.Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

9.Brominated flame retardants

10.Perfluorinated compounds
