A team of scientists from Yale University have found disturbing evidence of a link between vaccines and various neurological disorders.

The team of researchers from the Yale School of Medicine and Penn State College of Medicine say that children aged between 6-15 who receive vaccinations are at greater risk of being diagnosed with certain neuropsychiatric disorders than their non-vaccinated counterparts.

A team of scientists from Yale University have found disturbing evidence of a link between vaccines and various neurological disorders.

The team of researchers from the Yale School of Medicine and Penn State College of Medicine say that children aged between 6-15 who receive vaccinations are at greater risk of being diagnosed with certain neuropsychiatric disorders than their non-vaccinated counterparts.

Why look for a correlation between vaccination administration and brain disorders?

As the researchers point out, two major studies, one from researchers in Norway and one from an international team of researchers from Finland, Italy and Denmark, have shown an increased risk of narcolepsy following administration of the H1N1 flu vaccine.

Another study from China found an increased risk of narcolepsy after the H1N1 flu itself, which was unlikely to be linked to vaccinations.

If we look at this data from the H1N1 flu outbreaks, we see that immune responses—whether to the disease itself or to vaccination against the disease—can damage the brain.

While new discoveries about the human immune system are being made all the time, it is well understood that the immune system plays a role in brain development and in certain psychiatric conditions, including attention disorders, eating disorders, obsessive disorders and depression.

It is also well understood that the body’s immune response involves inflammation, which is when tissue swells in response to harmful stimulation. Harmful stimulation includes infectious diseases (that is, illnesses themselves), environmental toxins like mercury, and allergens like pollen or dust mites (which are actually benign, though an over-stimulated immune system perceives them as threats).

We further know that vaccination can cause inflammation, which is part of the body’s natural response to foreign substances.

Previous scientific studies have shown that when an immune reaction causes inflammation, it can negatively affect the brain.

So it is scientifically plausible and more than reasonable to investigate whether vaccination itself, which provokes inflammation, may also negatively affect the brain.

I agree with these researchers that the correlation between anorexia, OCD, tic disorder, anxiety disorder and vaccinations warrants further scrutiny.

This study suggests that the seemingly inexplicable increase we have seen in brain disorders among young children may not be so mysterious after all.
