New Study Shows Vaccines Cause Brain Changes Found in Autism

  • New research, published in the journal Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis, shows that monkeys given the 1990s vaccine schedule experienced similar brain changes to those seen in children with autism
  • Researchers used scanning techniques to assess brain growth and function between vaccinated and unvaccinated monkeys, and in vaccinated monkeys before and after the administration of vaccines
  • Those monkeys exposed to the vaccines had significant changes in brain growth and development .
  • The editor-in-chief of the journal, Dr. Kris Turlejski, describes the findings as “alarming” as they “support the possibility that there is a link between early immunization and the etiology of autism.”
  • The same research team has already found that baby monkeys given the hepatitis B vaccine (adjusted for weight) on the first day of life, suffered neurological delays. More about this research can be read here.
