ASIA (syndrome induced by adjuvants)- Vaccine Injury You May Not Be Aware Of

moneyshotThis blog is about the dangers of adjuvants, in particular, aluminum.  In just the past 3 years, I have presented 15 articles that found links between metals, aluminum especially, and a new syndrome: autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA).  For those who say that aluminum in vaccines is safe, think again!  The safety of aluminum in vaccines was never tested and ended up being generally considered safe simply because it was used for so long.  As we add more and more vaccines to the schedules and create some vaccines with hideous amounts of aluminum, is it any wonder we are seeing toxicity and immune mediated health effects?

The current CDC schedule requires the injection of aluminum during pregnancy with the Tdap.  It requires injection of a huge dose (250 micrograms) at birth and then three aluminum containing vaccines at 2 months and 6 months, and then two more at 4 months.  I have no doubt that this is a huge factor in many of the health problems American children face today that relate to brain issues (Autism, ADD, ADHD, learning issues, sensory issues and immune issues including the autoimmune disorders).

So often I hear “vaccines are proven safe” and I just want to scream!

In the article, “Metals as a common trigger of inflammation resulting in non-specific symptoms: diagnosis and treatment,” they found that “patients with CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) and fibromyalgia are frequently sensitized to metals … that might initiate or aggravate non-specific symptoms in metal-sensitized patients”. Read more…

In the article, “Predicting post-vaccination autoimmunity: Who might be at risk?,” they point out that ” adverse effects, including autoimmune conditions may occur following vaccinations (autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants- ASIA syndrome)“.  They recommend “four groups of individuals who might be susceptible to develop vaccination-induced ASIA: patients with prior post-vaccination autoimmune phenomena, patients with a medical history of autoimmunity, patients with a history of allergic reactions, and individuals who are prone to develop autoimmunity (having a family history of autoimmune diseases; asymptomatic carriers of autoantibodies; carrying certain genetic profiles, etc.)“, be identified. Read more…

The article, “Sjögren’s syndrome: another facet of the autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA),” they point out that “post-vaccination autoimmune phenomena represent a major issue of ASIA,” and mention that adjuvants have been shown to trigger autoimmune diseases. Read more…

The article, “Alum, an aluminum-based adjuvant, induces Sjögren’s syndrome-like disorder in mice,” showed how aluminum triggered an autoimmune response in mice. Read more…

Similar autoimmunity issues were triggered by vaccine aluminum in sheep in the article, “Autoimmune/autoinflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA syndrome) in commercial sheep“. Read more…

In the paper, “Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA) 2013: Unveiling the pathogenic, clinical and diagnostic aspects,” they focused “on the roles and mechanisms of action of different adjuvants which lead to the autoimmune/inflammatory response. The data herein illustrate the critical role of environmental factors in the induction of autoimmunity. Indeed, it is the interplay of genetic susceptibility and environment that is the major player for the initiation of breach of tolerance.” Read more… 

Evidence of the potential of the HPV vaccine to trigger a life-disabling autoimmune condition was documented in the article, “Human papilloma virus vaccine and primary ovarian failure: another facet of the autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants.” Read more…

ASIA (autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants), has recently been defined alluding to the role of adjuvant in inducing an immune-mediated condition. “Aluminum and silicone, respectively found in vaccines and breast implants, are the most commonly known adjuvants charged with development of autoimmune conditions,” as found in the study, “Unraveling the soul of autoimmune diseases: pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment adding dowels to the puzzle.” Read more…

For a great summary on the damages caused by the adjuvant aluminum I share in it’s entirety the abstract from the study, “Aluminum in the central nervous system (CNS): toxicity in humans and animals, vaccine adjuvants, and autoimmunity“:

We have examined the neurotoxicity of aluminum in humans and animals under various conditions, following different routes of administration, and provide an overview of the various associated disease states. The literature demonstrates clearly negative impacts of aluminum on the nervous system across the age span. In adults, aluminum exposure can lead to apparently age-related neurological deficits resembling Alzheimer’s and has been linked to this disease and to the Guamanian variant, ALS-PDC. Similar outcomes have been found in animal models. In addition, injection of aluminum adjuvants in an attempt to model Gulf War syndrome and associated neurological deficits leads to an ALS phenotype in young male mice. In young children, a highly significant correlation exists between the number of pediatric aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines administered and the rate of autism spectrum disorders. Many of the features of aluminum-induced neurotoxicity may arise, in part, from autoimmune reactions, as part of the ASIA syndrome.” Read more…

A long list of adverse health effects from immunizations with vaccines containing adjuvants is presented in the study, “Adverse events following immunization with vaccines containing adjuvants“. Read more… In the article, “Novel pebbles in the mosaic of autoimmunity,” authors speak of the novel syndrome ASIA and the association of aluminum to autoimmune issues. Read more…

The autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), that includes post vaccination phenomena, macrophagic myofasciitis, and Gulf War syndrome, is discussed in the article, “Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (Shoenfeld’s syndrome): clinical and immunological spectrum“. Read more…  It seems our young warriors who went off to battle in the gulf war were often given 10 plus vaccines at once, many containing large doses of aluminum.  The health impacts were often devastating, with autoimmune issues and perhaps direct toxic effects.

In the article, “Autoimmune response following influenza vaccination in patients with autoimmune inflammatory rheumatic disease,” it was found that the flu shots “have the potential to induce autoantibodies in selected AIRD patients and healthy adults” which was considered an ASIA like vaccine response. Read more…

Since vaccines are important, how do we determine who can safely be vaccinated and who should wait or never get them?  The study, “Autoimmunity following hepatitis B vaccine as part of the spectrum of ‘Autoimmune (Auto-inflammatory) Syndrome induced by Adjuvants’ (ASIA): analysis of 93 cases,” found that “risk factors such as history of autoimmune diseases and the appearance of adverse event(s) during immunization may serve to predict the risk of post-immunization diseases“. Read more…  I have noticed in my practice that those with prior family history of autism, autoimmune disorders and severe ADD or ADHD or hypersensitivities seem to be more vulnerable to subsequent children being at risk for these conditions. It now appears clear that the ASIA mechanism can explain how vaccines and adjuvants can cause these health problems.

In the study, “The common immunogenic etiology of chronic fatigue syndrome: from infections to vaccines via adjuvants to the ASIA syndrome,” the link to vaccine adjuvants and chronic fatigue syndrome is related to the autoimmunity that the ASIA situation teaches us. Read more…

If you have a high risk family history, you should consider delaying or avoiding vaccines, especially those with adjuvants and perhaps the live virus vaccines.  Since most physicians and the CDC that makes the vaccine schedule are not apparently aware of these studies and these issues, this highlights the importance of parents retaining the right to a philosophical or religious exemption to vaccines.

So often I hear “vaccines are proven safe” and I just want to scream!  We know vaccines have caused countless deaths and tremendous side effects and permanent health damage in many.  When you realize that the adjuvants are related to autoimmunity and ASIA, this opens up the possibility that vaccines and their adjuvants are perhaps the single greatest threat to our children’s health.  Have vaccines saved many from horrible diseases? Of course they have. So too often we have both sides of the debate screaming at each other or mad at each other when what is really needed is some common sense and a measure of respect for basic human freedoms and rights.

I hate to think of us throwing away all vaccines.  The manufacturers simply must develop safer vaccines. Aluminum as an adjuvant must be replaced with a safer one. We have enough evidence to rethink the whole vaccine schedule and slow it down as many European countries are doing with much better results.
