LATEST RESEARCH: An Autism Link Wrapped Up In Aluminum?

The Daily Mail(UK) introduces the latest research study as follows:

Aluminium in vaccines may cause autism, controversial new research suggests. 

Autistic children have up to 10 times more of the metal in their brains than what is considered safe in adults, a study found.

Aluminium crosses the membrane that separates the brain from circulating blood and accumulates in cells involved in maintaining a constant internal environment, such as temperature, the research adds.

Study author Professor Chris Exley from Keele University, said: ‘Perhaps we now have the link between vaccination and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the link being the inclusion of an aluminium adjuvant in the vaccine.’ 

Aluminum and mercury exposure from vaccines have both been disputed as causing neurological disorders, including autism. Earlier research on mercury has similarly indicated that it is found at elevated levels in the brains of deceased autistic patients. Over the years, however, more attention has been drawn to aluminum because it remains present in many more vaccines. But its critics have faced their share of pushback, like all contemporary critics of vaccines.

In 2008, Austrian journalist Bert Ehgartner was ejected from his blogging platform for writing critically of aluminum in vaccines. He went on to create a 2013 documentary Die Akt Aluminum (The Age of Aluminum)which took issue with human exposure to aluminum because of its toxicity.

It has been suspected that more vaccines containing aluminum were added to the recommended schedule to mask any observed effects on autism rates from the reduction of vaccines containing mercury. If true, that would give a whole, new meaning to the term “aluminum foil.”
