(NaturalNews) Comprehensive research compiled by expert immunologist Dr. J. "Bart" Classen has uncovered the disturbing fact that childhood vaccines are a common cause of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well as the barrage of chronic illness symptoms typically associated with metabolic syndrome. Because they tend to overstimulate the immune system, vaccines have the potential to either inhibit the proper production of insulin, resulting in the development of type 1 diabetes, or spur the production of too much insulin, resulting in the development of type 2 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes, as many people are already aware, is an autoimmune condition whereby the body attacks the pancreas and destroys the pancreatic cells responsible for producing insulin, a detrimental situation in which the body must be artificially injected with insulin. Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, is actually a chronic inflammatory condition marked by the pancreas producing too much insulin, and the body being unable to properly absorb it.
According to Dr. Classen, most of the people who develop type 2 diabetes, although often overweight or obese, are not typically responsible for triggering the onset of this potentially deadly condition. Particularly in children, there is clearly another factor involved in the development of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and one that available science on the subject seems to confirm is related to childhood vaccines.
"Not only are vaccines causing an epidemic of autoimmunity including type 1 diabetes, but they are causing an epidemic of metabolic syndrome as the immune system acts to suppress the inflammation and autoimmunity caused by the vaccines," says Dr. Classen, who for many years has been researching the connection between vaccines and diabetes.
"Current data shows that vaccines are much more dangerous than the public is led to believe and adequate testing has never been performed even in healthy subjects. The current practice of vaccinating diabetics as well as their close family members is a very risky practice." (http://www.biospace.com)
Vaccines trigger either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, depending on cortisol production levels
The human body naturally produces an adrenal hormone known as cortisol that is responsible for regulating proper carbohydrate and protein metabolism, and generally helping the body to adapt and deal with stressful situations. Excessive cortisol production is linked to type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, while inadequate cortisol production is linked to type 1 diabetes.
It appears as though individuals who naturally produce slightly lower than normal levels of cortisol are more prone to develop type 1 diabetes as a result of vaccines, according to Dr. Classen's research, while vaccinated individuals who tend to produce higher than normal levels of cortisol are more prone to develop type 2 diabetes. In either case, vaccines seem to be the smoking gun in explaining why cases of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes have risen dramatically throughout the past half century.
"Poor diet and low exercise can not explain many facets of the (diabetes) epidemic, including the onset in children six months of age, the protective effect of obesity on the incidence of type 1 diabetes, and the epidemic of type 2 diabetes/metabolic syndrome in grass fed horses," adds Dr. Classen, referencing a recent study he conducted that was published in the journal Current Diabetes Reviews.
