The Canary Party’s New Viral Video: Do Vaccines Cause Autism?
Written by The Canary Party
Sunday, 08 September 2013 07:00
For many years now, families of vaccine injured children have had difficult time trying to explain to the uninitiated why the vaccine program is so problematic.  Vaccine interests constantly push the sound bite, “vaccines are safe, vaccines save lives,” but the harsh reality of the damage being done is a much more complicated story.The Canary Party has produced a five minute video to explain the heart of the vaccine problem in this country.  Because liability protection has been removed from all involved in making and administering vaccines, the program has become corrupted, begun harming untold numbers of children, and abandoning the injured.SNL Alumni Rob Schneider graciously voiced the important video, which makes the case that the vaccine program is broken, and informs viewers of the upcoming Congressional hearings examining the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in the House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform.

 

 
Unknown to us over 7  years ago, Jim and I “blindly” vaccinated our son without being directed by healthcare professionals to test for two (2) vital predisposition factors our child may have inherited at birth in which some of the ingredients in vaccines may “trigger” neurological issues, including Autism.
If we could rewind the tape to the day our son was born, Jim and I would have had an educated consult with our son’s pediatrician PRIOR to making an informed decision regarding whether or not, or in what manner, to vaccinate our son.  We would have inquired about testing availability to see whether or not Hunter inherited a mitochondria disorder and/or an imbalanced gut flora.

 

MITOCHONDRIA DISORDER

The following information was obtained from the Center of Disease Control website on FAQ’s regarding mitochondrial diseases or disorders:
Q: What are mitochondrial diseases or disorders?
A: Mitochondria are tiny parts of almost every cell in your body. Mitochondria are like the power house of the cells. They turn sugar and oxygen into energy that the cells need to work.
In mitochondrial diseases, the mitochondria cannot efficiently turn sugar and oxygen into energy, so the cells do not work correctly.
There are many types of mitochondrial disease, and they can affect different parts of the body: the brain, kidneys, muscles, heart, eyes, ears, and others. Mitochondrial diseases can affect one part of the body or can affect many parts. They can affect those part(s) mildly or very seriously.
Not everyone with a mitochondrial disease will show symptoms. However, when discussing the group of mitochondrial diseases that tend to affect children, symptoms usually appear in the toddler and preschool years.  Mitochondrial diseases and disorders are the same thing.
Q: Is there a relationship between mitochondrial disease and autism?
A:   A child with a mitochondrial disease:
  • may also have an autism spectrum disorder,
  • may have some of the symptoms/signs of autism, or
  • may not have any signs or symptoms related to autism.More research is needed to find out how common it is for people to have autism and a mitochondrial disorder. Right now, it seems rare. In general, more research about mitochondrial disease and autism is needed. A: Children are not routinely tested for mitochondrial diseases. This includes children with autism and other developmental delays.
Q: Should I have my child tested for a mitochondrial disease?
  • A: If you are worried that your child might have a mitochondrial disease, talk to your child’s doctor.
Testing is not easy and may involve getting multiple samples of blood, and often samples of muscle. Doctors decide whether testing for mitochondrial diseases should be done based on a child’s signs and symptoms.
Q: Are all children routinely tested for mitochondrial diseases? What about children with autism?
  • A child with autism may or may not have a mitochondrial disease. When a child has both autism and a mitochondrial disease, they sometimes have other problems as well, including epilepsy, problems with muscle tone, and/or movement disorders.

Is it plausible that vaccines, any vaccine, can cause neurological issues in children???? 
The HRSA and CDC address that very question:
Here is what the US HRSA told CBS news reporter Sheryl Attkisson back in 2008 about children compensated for injuries caused by a vaccine – any vaccine – not simply the MMR vaccine:
“We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures. ” Text of May 5th 2008 email from US HRSA to Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News ]
So according to the HRSA vaccines cause encephalopathies [general brain injuries] which result in autism and/or seizures in children.
Here is what US CDC Director Julie Gerberding said on national US broadcast TV back in 2008:
“Now, we all know that vaccines can occasionally cause fevers in kids. So if a child was immunized, got a fever, had other complications from the vaccines. And if you’re predisposed with the mitochondrial disorder, it can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptoms can be symptoms that have characteristics of autism. ” (read more…)

IMBALANCED GUT FLORA:

The following information was obtained from an interview between Dr. Mercola and Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride regarding an imbalanced gut flora, vaccines and autism.
Q.   What is an imbalanced gut flora?
A.  Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride explains, “What happens in these children [is that] they do not develop normal gut flora from birth… As a result, their digestive system—instead of being a source of nourishment for these children—becomes a major source of toxicity. These pathogenic microbes inside their digestive tract damage the integrity of the gut wall. So all sort of toxins and microbes flood into the bloodstream of the child, and get into the brain of the child. (read more…)

Q. Can your child inherit an imbalanced gut flora at birth?
A.  In her research, Dr. Campbell-McBride discovered that nearly all of the mothers of autistic children have abnormal gut flora; this is significant because newborns inherit their gut flora from their mothers at the time of birth.

Q.  Can an imbalanced gut flora affect your child’s immunity   system?

A.  Dr. Campbell-McBride explains that establishing normal gut flora in the first 20 days or so of life plays a crucial role in the maturation of a baby’s immune system. Babies who develop abnormal gut flora are left with compromised immune systems, putting them at higher risk for suffering vaccine reactions.
Q.  Can vaccines “trigger autism symptoms” in a child with a suboptimal gut flora?
A.  Dr. Campbell-McBride explains that if your baby has suboptimal gut flora, vaccines can become the proverbial “last straw” — the trigger that “primes” his/her immune system to develop chronic health problems.
Q.  Is there testing available to see if my child has an imbalanced gut flora?
A.  Dr. Campbell-McBride explains that the entire process for identifying children who would be at risk for developing autism from a vaccine is described in her book Gut and Psychology Syndrome, but to sum it up, in her practice she starts out by collecting a complete health history of the parents, and their gut health is assessed. Then, within the first few days of life, the stool of the child can be analyzed to determine the state of her gut flora, followed by a urine test to check for metabolites, which can give you a picture of the state of your child’s immune system.
These tests are available in most laboratories around the world and cost a very reasonable amount, about $80 to $100 per test — peanuts compared to the incredible expense of treating an autistic child once the damage is done. In my view, it is absolutely VITAL to perform this analysis BEFORE you consider vaccinating your child. If the test results are normal, the likelihood of autism after vaccines is dramatically reduced. (read more…)

Personally, we were never directed by our son’s pediatrician regarding tests that could determine if our son inherited a mitochondria disorder and/or an imbalanced gut flora.
Since no adequate warning labels were provided to us detailing potential neurological side effects, thinking we were doing best our child, we vaccinated Hunter according to the childhood vaccination schedule.  After receiving the mandated MMR, then flu shot, and DTaP vaccination from September 2008 – December 2008; Hunter started to regress slowly at first, but regress.  In the span of a year, our son went from a happy, engaging, social child, to a child trapped in his own little world.
Although we started to see a change in our son after the MMR vaccine, we believe Hunter’s body was on toxic overload after receiving his very first vaccination, the Hep B, within 3 hours of his birth.  Why do we say this?  Well, Hunter’s APGAR score was 9.9 at birth, he WAS NOT born jaundice.  However, shortly after receiving his Hep B vaccinations, Jim and I were upset to receive news from a nurse that Hunter had to be placed “under billy lights” to address his now jaundiced condition.   Unknown to us at the time, this first shot, coupled with predisposition factors, contributed to Hunter’s future toxic overload, his inability detoxify as well as his affliction with Autism.
LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKE
This website is dedicated to educating parents, parents-to-be, and children dreaming of becoming a parent someday, as to what they can proactively do to protect and build your child’s immunity “naturally”.
What we have learned, continue to learn today, and want to share with you,  is that we the people, need to be informed about the toxic levels contained in the environment, our food, and the ingredients which make up our children’s vaccines today.  These toxic exposures can, immediately and/or overtime,wreak havoc on our digestive system, which adversely affects our cellular vitality, which contributes to a multitude of “dis-eases” today.
