Altered hormones and autism: are vaccines, herbicides and other products increasing the risk of these disorders?
What are the consequences when we allow synthetic and/or genetically-manipulated material (fetal cell lines, animal cells, artificially created hormones and chemicals) to be injected into our or our children’s bodies in the name of “protection against disease?”
Scientists are continually researching new ways to “cure” degenerative and “deadly” disease. In 2015, The New York Times reported on the work of Dr. Michael Farzan, immunologist and lead scientist, who developed a technique known as immunoprophylaxis by gene transfer (IGT): “By delivering synthetic genes into the muscles of the [experimental] monkeys, the scientists are essentially re-engineering the animals to resist disease.” This process differs from conventional vaccination in that it is considered “a form of gene therapy.” Further: “Scientists isolate the genes that produce powerful antibodies against certain diseases and then synthesize artificial versions. The genes are placed into viruses and injected into human tissue, usually muscle.”
“The viruses invade human cells with their DNA payloads, and the synthetic is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA. If all goes well, the new genes instruct the cells to begin manufacturing powerful antibodies.” Farzan and his associates hope this effort will be successful in engineering organisms to resist disease.
Is this a beneficial therapy that will seemingly “prevent disease”, or are we treading into territory that is possibly unsafe, or forbidden … according to the real design of nature?
Are these and other activities of manipulating the natural order of nature permanently altering our human genetic makeup? What are the consequences?
Use of fetal tissue in vaccines
Dr. Helen Ratajczak, PhD, former senior scientist at a pharmaceutical firm, conducted this study, featured on CBS in 2011: “Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes – A review.” In it, she details the consequences of injecting manipulated human tissue (DNA) into a human being.
Ratajczak discusses the connection between injecting human DNA into human beings and the emergence of brain damage: “Because it’s human DNA and recipients are humans, there’s homologous recombinaltion tiniker. That DNA is incorporated into the host DNA. Now it’s changed, altered self and body kills it. Where is this most expressed? The neurons of the brain. Now you have body killing the brain cells and it’s an ongoing inflammation. It doesn’t stop, it continues through the life of that individual.”
Coincidentally, around the time vaccine manufacturers removed thimerosal from the majority of vaccines (other than flu shots, which still predominantly contain thimerosal, a form of mercury), they began development of new vaccines that incorporated human fetal tissue. As of this report, Ratajczak confirmed that 23 vaccines contained human DNA. That was 6 years ago.
She details the rise in the incidence of autism corresponding with the introduction of human DNA to the MMR vaccine, and suggests the two could be linked, as well as the marked spike in autism in 1995 when manufacturers began culturing the chicken pox vaccine in human fetal tissue.
Her review includes a host of peer-reviewed, published theories that show possible connections between autism and vaccines. “Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis [brain damage] following vaccination [emphasis added]. Therefore, autism is the result of genetic defects and/or inflammation of the brain.”
Other, more recent studies show the clear connection between vaccines using fetal cell tissue and the emergence of autism. In 2014, the Journal of Public Health and Epidemiology published a study which analyzed data from the US Government, UK, Denmark and Western Australia. Scientists at Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI) observed an increase in autism with direct correspondence to the introduction of vaccines using human fetal cell lines and retroviral contaminants.
Dr. Theresa Deisher, PhD is a molecular and cellular physiologist from Stanford University, and has 20+ years experience in commercial biotechnology. She says that the assumption made by many professionals in environments is that “diagnostic changes” are responsible for the increase in autism diagnoses.
Scientists have looked at a variety of proposed environmental stressors including pollution, high voltage wires, microwaves, cell phones, and birth control pills. None of these are associated with change points for autism which have been monitored during the span of years that vaccines have been in production. However, there is one environmental stressor switch that does have an impact on the rise in autism rates, and this is not only true in the U.S. but across the planet. That change is a modification in the way vaccines are manufactured. The change involves going from using animal cell lines to using fetal cell lines.
Here’s how fetal cells are used in vaccines: the vaccine is essentially a virus in liquid. Viruses are long strands of RNA or DNA molecules. Growing the virus in a test tube is too costly, so the pharmaceutical companies mimic nature’s way of making viruses by infecting cells. The cells produce the virus, and then manufacturers attempt to purify the virus away from the cellular material to produce the product. Anyone who studies chemistry is familiar with the fact that no viral product is ever pure. When you go from small scale to a large scale, impurities increase dramatically. There are contaminants from the cell that were used to make the virus. When chicken eggs are used there are contaminants from the chicken eggs in the final vaccine. That contaminant is not human and our bodies can reject it as a foreign substance. Our bodies then create an immune response as they attempt to eliminate the contaminant.
In human fetal cells used for vaccines, there are fragments of a retrovirus and large amounts of fragments of primitive human DNA (because it’s fetal in origin). In some cases the contaminants are at higher levels than the active ingredient of the vaccine.
What does that mean to a child that is injected? Two things:
- A well-established observation of immune response. The material is human, but it’s not material from the actual child that’s receiving the injection. Receiving this material will then likely cause the body to turn on itself and the result is an auto-immune response. The possibility of cancerous tumors forming is also present.
- A process called Insertional Mutagenesis (IM). IM is a mutation caused by insertion of new genetic material into a normal gene. This process, not unlike techniques used by biotechnology companies to genetically-alter the DNA of plants with the goal of achieving resistance to disease, has been observed to play a predominant role in the development of autism.
The DNA fragments can insert themselves into the genome of the child and create subsequent mutations and cause. There are 30-40 or more papers looking at the genomes at children who developed autism, they have hundreds of mutations that are (not originating from their parents). Science has established very clearly what can cause these diverse mutations: radiation exposure, chemical toxin exposure and foreign DNA exposure. According to Dr. Deisher, the only one of those three that corresponds with the known change points is DNA exposure.
There are thousands of pages of FDA meeting minutes discussing the dangers of injecting fetal stem cell material into another human being. The FDA has spent over 50 years debating whether using using human fetal cell lines for vaccines is safe. Yet, no safety studies have ever been conducted. To date, no epidemiological studies have occurred that consider the influence on autism diagnosis based on receipt of fetal-material containing vaccines, which includes MMR II, Pentacel, Havrix, Varivax, and Vaqta.
Where can I find documentation that fetal cells are used in vaccines?
Visit the CDC web site for a list of ingredients used in vaccines, including fetal cell tissue. One item appearing on the excipient list is “human diploid fibroblast cell cultures” (strain WI-38).
Another item on the excipient list is “MRC-5 human diploid cells”, which according to Wikipedia, “MRC-5 (Medical Research Council cell strain 5) is a diploid human cell culture line composed of fibroblasts derived from lung tissue of an 14 week old aborted caucasian male fetus.” Source, source.
There is a new diploid human cell line to be used for Walvax-2, which would replace MRC-5 and WI-38. “Due to dwindling capacity for existing aborted fetal cell lines to self-replicate, scientists in China have developed a new aborted fetal cell line, WALVAX 2 that will be used for viral vaccine production.”
“WALVAX 2 is taken from the lung tissue of a 3 month gestation female who was ultimately selected from among 9 aborted babies. The scientists noted how they followed specific guidelines to mimic WI-38 and MRC-5 in selecting the aborted babies, ranging from 2-4 months gestation. They further noted how they induced labor using a “water bag” abortion to shorten the delivery time and prevent the death of the fetus to ensure live intact organs which were immediately sent to the labs for cell preparation.
According to the studies published earlier this year in the NIH Pub Med, scientists noted that Walvax-2 cells replicated more rapidly than MRC-5 cells, attained greater population doubling and performed better or equal to the existing cell lines for culturing viruses.” Source.
Use of synthetic hormones in vaccines
Dr. Wahome Ngare of the Kenyan Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) has recommended boycott of the current polio vaccine. The KCCB conducted tests on vaccines from the field, and learned two of the six vaccines tested contained estradiol, a derivative of the estrogen hormone, linked to an increase in infertility. Infertility is a symptom typically associated with alteration in normal hormone levels.
The decision to halt use of the polio vaccine comes after the contamination of tetanus vaccines in 2015. The vaccines, introduced by WHO were found to contain the sterilizing hormone HcG.
No human studies have yet occurred to determine the effect on humans, but scientists have already concluded from animal studies that estradiol, when exposed to males, has been observed to diminish sperm production in the testes. “There are also studies of estradiol’s effect on males whose mothers were taking it in pills or otherwise during breastfeeding. It is also known to be carcinogenic (causes cancer),” said Dr. Ngare.
This is not the first occurrence of estrogen in vaccines. In 2004, Alan Cantwell, M.D., brought this to the public’s attention when he raised his concern that polio vaccines, slated for administration upon a population of 74 million children in Africa, were discovered to be contaminated with a variety of female sex hormones, and that the injection of these was linked to an increase of sterility.
Leslie Carol Botha, internationally recognized authority on women’s hormones and behaviors was consulted as to whether she believes the use of estradiol is safe in vaccines. Her answer? “Absolutely not”. She emphasized the connection between the use of estradiol and male infertility:
“Although it’s been known for many years that the testes of men make small amounts of estrogen, its physiological role was unknown until landmark research was published in December 1993 in the ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences’.
This study examined genetically altered males and non-responsive to estrogen appeared normal anatomically, but showed lowered sperm counts. The majority were rendered infertile.
She goes on to say, “What is of major concern are the amount of estradiol and other synthetic hormones in our environment. There have been numerous studies – some dating back to the 1930s on the impact of ‘gender-bending’ chemicals on sexual development. When we include estradiol in vaccines without transparency, it’s yet another instance of administering something unknown or dangerous to humans without education on the consequences. This is a blatant lack of Informed Consent as this information is not included on vaccine inserts. Source.
Are chemical herbicides in the environment altering our hormones?
Tyrone Hayes, University of CA professor was asked to study a chemical called atrazine, a widely-used herbicide manufactured by Syngenta. He found unexpected results: that it causes sexual abnormality in frogs and that it could potentially cause the same effects in humans (frogs changing from male to female). Their campaign to discredit Hayes has suppressed this critical information that’s more than pertinent today.
Watch this eye-opening interview with Tyrone Hayes as he talks with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now about his findings and how he has been silenced by powerful a powerful entity that has much to lose if the success of its product is placed in jeopardy.
Tyrone Hayes, et al published study, from 2010.
Hormone-disrupting and gender-altering chemicals are not new. For decades, corporations and the food industry have produced products and food that have contained artificial and excess levels of estrogen, the exposure to which does increase our risk of various types of cancer. Scientific American has reported on this here (2007), appearing in fish, and here, appearing in products made of plastics (2008). The Environmental Working Group (EWG) reported on the Dirty Dozen Endocrine Disruptors: 12 Hormone-Altering Chemicals and How to Avoid Them. These appear in a variety of products and affect fertility, puberty, sperm quality, and overall health in devastating ways. The list includes atrazine, dioxins, pthalates, perchlorate, fire retardants, lead, arsenic and mercury.
As normal hormone levels and the ability to conceive are measures of a population’s overall health, it is critical to note that there has been a dramatic decline in sperm count among men surveyed over a 40 year time span, a recent finding that has been widely reported in the media this year. Conducted by epidemiologist Hagai Levine who led a team from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, researchers examined 185 individual studies conducted between 1973 and 2011. The paper published in the medical journal Human Reproduction Update also concluded that Western men’s sperm count concentration, on average, is decreasing at a rate of 1.4 percent annually. That shows an overall drop of more than 50 percent. (additional resource: Sperm Health: The Definitive Guide)
Before you make a decision to vaccinate or use pharmaceutical drugs / products, we urge each and every person to do the research and learn both sides of the argument to and against the use of biologics (vaccines) and drugs, whether they are over-the-counter or prescription. This is especially important where children are involved. Children are growing and developing, and the foundation of their health is fragile and requires protection from potentially toxic substances which can alter their physiology, and support with real, nourishing food that contains nutrients developed from nature, not synthesized in a laboratory.
