(NaturalNews) Research that late last year identified an increased prevalence of stokes among younger populations has failed to properly identify and investigate all potential causes of this dire phenomenon. Since they have increasingly become associated with a range of other medical conditions in recent years, vaccines are the "elephant in the room," to borrow the words of Gaia Health's Heidi Stevenson, who believes vaccines may be a prominent causative factor in elevated stroke rates.
Back in October, a report published in the journal of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) found that between the years of 1993 and 2005, the stroke rate among individuals under the age of 55 increased by more than 44 percent. Many experts are apparently dumbfounded as to why there has been such a dramatic increase, and some have suggested that perhaps lack of exercise, poor dietary habits, obesity, and other chronic health and lifestyle factors may be to blame.
To their credit, these suggestions are all entirely feasible, and likely play a significant role in this epidemic of stroke cases. But the omission of vaccines as a possible factor is both negligent and irresponsible, considering that vaccines have been recently linked to causing narcolepsy, autoimmune disorders, and various other chronic health problems. According to Stevenson's assessment, it is only logical that vaccines might play some role, at the very least, in triggering early seizures.
"A range of neurological disorders [is] associated with vaccines, including macrophagic myofasciitis, encephalopathy, epilepsy, convulsions, Guillain-Barre syndrome, nerve deafness, blindness, paralysis, sudden infant death syndrome, and of course, autism," writes Stevenson. "Now that the earliest recipients of mass vaccination programs are entering middle age, why should we be surprised to find that they're more likely to suffer from another indication of brain damage, stroke?"
Canadian doctor found more than a decade ago that vaccines can cause 'micro-strokes'
Dr. Andrew Moulden, a Canadian doctor, actually discovered back in 2001 that vaccines can induce microvascular strokes in some people, though none of the journals or medical organizations he submitted his research to would publish these shocking findings. As it turns out, vaccines cause the body's natural immune system to hyper-react to the injection of foreign particle material, which prompts a massive release of white blood cells. And these white blood cells, which are too large to enter the bloodstream, surround capillaries and actually clog and collapse them, leading to what are essentially micro-strokes.
As a result, these blockages prevent smaller red blood cells from effectively delivering oxygen to the organs near these capillaries. And if these particles get anywhere near the brain, brain injuries such as autism and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) can ensue, which would explain a similar increase in these injuries in direct correlation to the ever-expanding childhood vaccination schedule.
"What should be clear by now is that vaccines are taking a severe toll on people's brains," adds Stevenson. "The cost both to the individuals, whose lives are afflicted by strokes, and to society as a whole, which loses [its] productiveness and is burdened with their care, is massive."
