“First Do No Harm” Do Children’s Shots Invite Autism? Chronic Diseases Have Risen With Increased Vaccinations Against Acute Diseases

If the multibillion-dollar vaccine industry had heeded Hippocrates’ dictum to “First Do No Harm”, and concentrated on making vaccines safe, the 300% to 500% nationwide increase in autism probably would not have occurred. Simultaneous rises in other chronic and debilitating diseases include asthma, allergies, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities, arthritis and Crohn’s disease.

The cause of the skyrocketing rates of these disorders like the rise in autism has mystified the experts.

Vaccination against acute diseases such as measles and rubella has increased susceptibility to chronic disorders such as autism, asthma, arthritis and ADHD. Am I overstating the case? I don’t think so. We are just beginning to learn that pumping toxins – viruses, bacteria, mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde, for example – into the body in the form of vaccinations for immediate gain may prove to be costly in the long term.

Those who share my view do not oppose vaccines. What we oppose is over-vaccination and unsafe vaccines.

Most people are shocked to learn that in recent years, the number of vaccine doses a child receives before entering school has risen to 33. There are more than 200 other vaccines – expensive and profitable – under development.

In 1965, parents began telling me that their children became autistic upon getting the DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus) shot – a triple vaccine. When another triple vaccine, MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) was introduced in the 1980s, the alarming reports from parents and the prevalence figures for autism rose sharply. Corroborating evidence is plentiful.

Why should we use vaccines containing levels of mercury that vastly exceed the upper limit of safety? Even minute amounts of mercury are highly toxic to nerve and immune system tissue.
