(NaturalNews) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency conducted a study, published in Environmental Science & Technology,1 that shows a correlation between the rise in autism rates since the 1980s and the use of fetal cells from aborted pregnancies. The study shows 1988 as a "change point" in the rise of Autistic Disorder (AD) rates and correlated data from 10+ year studies conducted in the U.S., Japan, Denmark, and other countries.
The study proceeds on the assumption that autism is a combination of physiological and environmental factors, most notably environmental stressors that could "trigger" an AD response in children. Two major stressors that were found to be potential "tipping points" in the 1988-89 time span were increased immunization rates (and amounts) and the introduction of fetal-based cells into common vaccines such as some measles mumps rubella (MMR).
Two other major dates in the study's findings and correlated with marked rises in AD diagnosis were 1981 and 1995. 1981 was two years after the new MMRII was approved and entered widespread use in the U.S. - using fetal cells. 1995 was when the chicken pox vaccine was updated, also including fetal cells.2
Currently, there are at least eleven vaccines commonly used in the U.S. that contain aborted fetal cells, according to Right to Life of Michigan.3. These are the most commonly-given vaccines as well, including those for polio and rabies.
Most Americans are probably unaware that not only is the use of aborted babies' cells in vaccines becoming a common practice, but the FDA also has no requirement that the resulting vaccines and medications be labeled as containing them. For many people, this may pose a moral dilemma (regarding opposition to or support of abortion) as one of the political chopping blocks that divides many Americans.
Of course, the evidence for a link between vaccines and autism's rise has been overwhelmingly obvious to those who read NaturalNews, and despite the mainstream and Big Pharma's attempts to discredit researchers such as Dr. Andrew Wakefield, parents and informed medical practitioners are steering clear of vaccinations.
Meanwhile, experts in other fields (eager to ignore the obvious) are pressing forward with more studies to prove various causes for autism. Genetics is a common and widely accepted reason for AD and ASD among scientists, though no hard evidence for this is anywhere available.4
The fact that no scientific studies have been released showing the correlation between vaccines and autism (or factually discrediting it) is testament not to any falsehood in the vaccine-autism link, but instead to the concerted efforts by Big Pharma and their minions to control the populace for profit.5
As the battle between Big Pharma and the health of the world's population continues, it's becoming obvious that the pharmaceutical industry will stop at nothing to profit. Everything from the bodies of aborted babies to the destroyed minds of future generations are fair game to them.
