"Shockingly High" Levels of Aluminum Found in Autistic Brains
Thanks to scientists such as Dr. Shaw at University of British Columbia and Dr. Exley at Keele University, we now know that following vaccination, a significant amount of Aluminum is picked up by immunoreactive pro-inflammatory cells at the injection site and transported to the brain. "Rather than thinking about Alzheimer's disease as something where aluminum accumulated in the brain over decades, this could be happening in days, weeks, months" says Dr. Exley. "What the new research showed was scary amounts of aluminum in the brains of individuals who died with a diagnosis of autism, including some adolescent children; 13, 14, 15-year olds. Ridiculously high amounts, quantatatively."

Amount of Aluminum in Childhood Vaccines
Amount of aluminum in vaccines routinely given to children:
- Hib (PedVaxHib brand only) - 225 mcg per shot
- Hepatitis B - 250 mcg
- DTaP - depending on the manufacturer, ranges from 170 to 625 mcg
- Pneumococcus - 125 mcg
- Hepatitis A - 250 mcg
- Gardasil/Gardasil 9 - 225/500 mcg per shot (X 3 shots in series = 675/1,500 mcg)
- Pentacel (DTaP, HIB and Polio combo vaccine) - 330 mcg
- Pediarix (DTaP, Hep B and Polio combo vaccine) - 850 mcg
Maximum safe levels of aluminum (per the FDA):
- 8 pound, healthy baby: 18.16 mcg
- 15 pound, healthy baby: 34.05 mcg
- 30 pound, healthy toddler: 68.1 mcg
- 50 pound, healthy child: 113 mcg
- 150 pound adult: 340.5 mcg
- 350 pound adult: 794.5 mcg
Adverse effects of a child receiving more than the safe dose of aluminum: (per the FDA and AAP):
- Aluminum builds up in the bones and brain and can be toxic to the body and its organs.
- Aluminum "can" cause neurological harm.
- Aluminum overdose can be fatal in patients with weak kidneys or kidney disorders or in premature babies.

Some doctors will give 8 vaccinations at once, but that totals to more than 1,000 mcg of aluminum. According to the FDA, that amount isn't safe for a 350 pound adult let alone a child who weighs less than 35 pounds. Beyond the short list of adverse effects listed above, the in-depth presentations below cover some of the latest research on the harm of aluminum adjuvants.
Documentary: Injecting Aluminum
In the early 90s, a mysterious muscular disease with symptoms that included severe muscle and joint pain, fatigue, and fever began to surface among multiple patients in France, leaving them debilitated. Doctors and researchers relentlessly searched for the cause of this troubling new condition. A team in Paris determined that these patients had developed a new disease called Macrophagic Myofascitis, or MMF, which occurs when the aluminum hydroxide adjuvant from a vaccine remains embedded in the muscle tissue.
Injecting Aluminum features interviews with MMF patients, doctors, scientists, and influential politicians who are speaking out for the very first time about the dangers of aluminum in vaccines. This groundbreaking documentary calls in to question the public health policies around aluminum in vaccines and the failure of health agencies globally to respond to the known neurotoxic effects of this powerful vaccine ingredient on the human body.
What are the Known Harms of Aluminum?
Aluminum has been scientifically linked to a vast number of diseases and conditions that have risen in prevalence in recent decades. The following list can be found in Aluminum and Medicine by Prof. Christopher Exley.
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Motor Neuron Disease (MND/ALS)
- Dialysis Encephalopathy
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
- Vaccine-related Macrophagic Myofasciitis
- Vaccine-related Cutaneous Lymphoid Hyperplasia
- Vaccine-related Hypersensitivity to Aluminum
- Immunotherapy-related Hypersensitivity
- Down’s Syndrome
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Gulf War Illness
- Crohn’s Disease
- Vascular Disease / Stroke

Study: Nerve Myelin Sheath Damaged by Aluminum
Our nerves are insulated by a myelin sheath, and if that sheath is compromised, it's equivalent to the disintegration of the insulation in your house wiring - transmission of signal is shorted or otherwise compromised, with possible resulting electrical fire. The aluminum contained in the majority of childhood vaccines attacks myelin. Sensory loss, sensory disturbance, sensory integrative dysfunction, are all reported vaccine reactions. Pubmed: Myelin is a preferential target of aluminum-mediated oxidative damage
Did Chinese Scientists Find Autism's Missing Puzzle Piece?
Scientists appear to be far closer to explaining the mechanisms of action within the body that cause autism. Most of the research that has created this understanding has been published in the last 36 months, and largely from international scientists in Canada, France, Israel, and China. Four clear, replicable, and related discoveries explaining how autism is triggered are forming an undeniably clear picture of autism's causation, and possibly ways to alleviate the symptoms, too.

Scientists Sound the Alarm... About Aluminum in Vaccines
"Now, because I have seen the same cells that we will see at an injection site carrying a cargo of aluminum into the brain tissue of individuals who died with autism I would now say that we have to think very carefully about who receives a vaccine that includes an aluminum adjuvant. We need to think carefully, is this vaccine a life-saving vaccine or not? If it isn't, don't have it with an aluminum adjuvant." - Dr. Chris Exley, Keele University (England), 2017
"Concerns about its [alum's] safety emerged following recognition of its unexpectedly long-lasting biopersistence within immune cells in some individuals, and reports of chronic fatigue syndrome, cognitive dysfunction, myalgia, dysautonomia and autoimmune/inflammatory features temporally linked to multiple Al-containing vaccine administrationsâ€¦In the context of massive development of vaccine-based strategies worldwide, the present study may suggest that aluminium adjuvant toxicokinetics and safety require reevaluation." - Dr. Guillemette Crépeaux, Ecole Nationale VÃ©tÃ©rinaire d'Alfort (France), 2016
"Thus alum and other poorly biodegradable materials taken up at the periphery by phagocytes circulate in the lymphatic and blood circulation and can enter the brain using a Trojan horse mechanism similar to that used by infectious particles. Previous experiments have shown that alum administration can cause CNS dysfunction and damage, casting doubts on the exact level of alum safety." - Dr. Romain K. Gherardi, Université Paris-Est Créteil (France), 2015

Scientists Sound the Alarm (part 2)
"It is somewhat surprising to find that in spite of over 80 years of use, the safety of Al adjuvants continues to rest on assumptions rather than scientific evidence. For example, nothing is known about the toxicology and pharmacokinetics of Al adjuvants in infants and children... Yet, in spite of these observations children continue regularly to be exposed to much higher levels of Al adjuvants than adults, via routine childhood vaccination programmes." - Dr. Chris Shaw, University of British Columbia (Canada), 2012
"Continuously escalating doses of this poorly biodegradable adjuvant in the population may become insidiously unsafe, especially in the case of overimmunization or immature/altered blood brain barrier." - Dr. Josette Cadusseau, Universit é Paris-Est Créteil (France), 2013
"Experimental research has showed that alum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans. Thus, efforts should be put in clarifying the potential threat of alum-containing vaccines." - Dr. Yehuda Shoefeld, Tel-Aviv University (Israel), 2013
"The problem with vaccine- derived aluminum is really twofold: It drives the immune response even in the absence of a viral or bacterial threat and it can make its way into the central nervous system. It is not really a matter of much debate that aluminum in various forms can be neurotoxic." - Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic, University of British Columbia (Canada), 201
Reconsidering "Safe" Levels of Aluminum in Pediatric Vaccines
- Several critical mistakes have been made in the consideration of aluminum dosing in pediatric vaccines.
- Aluminum levels in vaccines are based on immune efficacy and ignore body weight for safety.
- Safety inferences of vaccine doses of aluminum have relied solely on dietary exposure ;studies of adult mice and rats.
- On Day 1 of life, infants receive 17 times more aluminum than would be allowed if doses were adjusted per body weight.
- Revised MRL calculation based weights are provided, but are also based on speculation, not on safety data.
