Medical Industry Claims Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism Or Diabetes

SwineFluVaccineWell they would, wouldn’t they? From Medical News Today:

After analyzing over 1,000 research papers, a report issued by the IOM (Institute of Medicine) found no evidence linking vaccines to autism or type 1 diabetes risk, and very few other health problems caused or clearly linked to vaccines. According to a committee of experts who reviewed the scientific studies, convincing evidence was found of 14 health outcomes associated with vaccines, including fainting, brain inflammation and seizures, however, their occurrences were found to be very rare.

Some less clear data linking certain vaccines to four other effects, including temporary joint pain and allergic reactions were also found. Regarding other suggested adverse effects, the experts said there was inadequate data.

The IOM says that this review will help the HHS administer the VICP (Vaccine Injury Compensation Program), which depends on science-based evidence when deciding on vaccine-related side effects. The HHS (Department of Health and Human Services) asked the IOM for a comprehensive review on eight vaccines covered by VICP.

The HHS says the findings of the review are helpful for VICP staff, special masters that rule on vaccine cases, those filing claims, and others.

MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine – some people may have seizures caused by fever. In virtually all cases, the effect was temporary and without long-term consequences. Very rarely, those with severe immune deficiencies may develop a form of brain inflammation. Some women and children may experience short-term pain.

Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine – in rare cases some people may have brain swelling, pneumonia, meningitis, shingles, and hepatitis, and also chickenpox if the patient has a weakened immune system.

Anaphylaxis – this is an allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis can occur shortly after receiving the MMR, Varicella, influenza, hepatitis B, meningococcal, and the tetanus-containing vaccines (all injections). The HPV vaccine may trigger anaphylaxis in some patients.

The report also explained that vaccines in general can cause some individuals to faint, while others may develop inflammation of the shoulder. Some evidence points towards four other adverse events with some vaccines, however, the evidence is not compelling, the authors explained…

    I personally wouldn’t call it the “medical industry”; it would be like saying that the National Endowment for the Arts is part of the “entertainment Industry”.  According to the wikipedia article:

    The Institute of medicine is a not-for-profit, non-governmental American organization founded in 1970, under the congressional charter of the United States National Academy of Sciences.  The IOM is part of the United States National Academies, which also includes:
    National Academy of Sciences (NAS)
    National Academy of Engineering (NAE)
    National Research Council (NRC)

    Its purpose is to provide national advice on issues relating to
    biomedical science, medicine, and health, and its mission to serve as
    adviser to the nation to improve health. It works outside the framework
    of the U.S. federal government to provide independent guidance and
    analysis and relies on a volunteer workforce of scientists and other
    experts, operating under a rigorous, formal peer-review system. The Institute provides unbiased, evidence-based, and
    authoritative information and advice concerning health and science
    policy to policy-makers, professionals, leaders in every sector of
    society, and the public at large.

    “Well they would, wouldn’t they?”

    Or, to turn it around, is there any amount of evidence that would convince the anti-vax crowd that vaccines do not cause autism? Or are they so committed to an ideological position that any evidence to the contrary is immediately dismissed as part of a cover-up by a greedy, sadistic medical establishment?

    To me this seems like saying “tylenol does not cause athletes foot”

    It is an inane argument to make it seem safe when really you should be wondering if tylenol is having any other effects on your body.

    Are vaccenes really good for your immune system is the real question; is excitotoxicity in the central nervous system caused by vaccenes a problem? (my vote is probably). But don’t worry guys… it doesn’t cause diabetes(even though we already know its cause: terrible diets…)

      They were talking about type 1 diabetes, which has nothing to do with your diet.

      • http://hormeticminds.blogspot.com/ Chaorder Gradient

        fair enough, my bad.

        Makes me realize the entire anti-vaccene argument that is publicized is the argument that they modify the genetics of the entire organism. Maybe people should state it at that base level rather than implicate specific disorders such as autism and diabetes. If vaccenes can cause these, then they can surely cause a whole host of other problems

        of course… the medical establishment answer is an explicit no– that the whole of an organism cannot be genetically modified after birth, and I’m leaning towards that being true (but who knows). This seems like a simple answer and easy way of ridiculing people against vaccenes, even though, as I said, there are other problems besides the possibly farfetched belief of genetic modification(honestly I dont know how farfetched it is considering all that is taught about viruses is that they modify genetics).

  • StillAtMyMoms

    IOM: I wonder who really funds their research.  My wager is Big Pharma.  If that’s the case, considered this study skewed.  The spectrum of Autism raises a dilemma:  Are we just becoming more aware of it and easily diagnosed any kind of symptom as Autism?  Or is there truly a substantial increase in cases?  If the latter is the case, then I am betting on the stress–the overall rat race–is the probably the culprit.  We live at such a fast-paced life that it would be incredibly to naive believe there is no consequence.  This epidemic should be a wake up call.

    First added to childhood vaccines in 1930s

    First “discovered” among children born in 1930s

    Exposure levels steadily increased since 1930s with rate of vaccination, number of vaccines

    Prevalence of autism has steadily increased from 1 in 2000 (pre1970) to 1 in 500 (early 1990s), higher in 2000.

    Exposure occurs at 0 – 15
    months; clinical silent stage means symptom emergence delayed; symptoms
    emerge gradually, starting with movement & sensation

    Symptoms emerge from 4 months to 2 years old; symptoms emerge gradually, starting with movement & sensation

    Population Characteristics

    Effects more males than females

    Male:female ratio estimated at 4:1

    At low doses, only affects those geneticially susceptible

    High heritability – concordance for MZ twins is 90%

    That was fucking stupid.

    I, and nearly everyone I know, including the people I have known my entire life have had vaccinations and only a tiny few have type 1 (genetic) diabetes and none have autism. Feel free not to have vaccinations yourself, but I will probably still think they are better to have than not have, until proved otherwise.

    They were talking about type 1 diabetes, which has nothing to do with your diet.

    fair enough, my bad.

    Makes me realize the entire anti-vaccene argument that is publicized is the argument that they modify the genetics of the entire organism. Maybe people should state it at that base level rather than implicate specific disorders such as autism and diabetes. If vaccenes can cause these, then they can surely cause a whole host of other problems

    of course… the medical establishment answer is an explicit no– that the whole of an organism cannot be genetically modified after birth, and I’m leaning towards that being true (but who knows). This seems like a simple answer and easy way of ridiculing people against vaccenes, even though, as I said, there are other problems besides the possibly farfetched belief of genetic modification(honestly I dont know how farfetched it is considering all that is taught about viruses is that they modify genetics).

    People who have been injured due to negligence and someone else fault can make a claim compensation. An individual claiming a vaccine-related injury or death files a petition for compensation with the Court and may be represented by an attorney.
