IOM states Vaccines can cause Autism

Currently the Australian government is considering removing the philosophical exemptions to vaccines yet in 2001 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) stated that vaccines are a plausible cause of autism.
This link was not confirmed because it was stated that further research was needed to prove the causal mechanism.
In other words, the link has not been disproven as governments and media are claiming.
Despite the knowledge that vaccines may be causing autism (and other significant neurological damage in children) governments are continuing to recommend an increasing number of vaccines to children, pregnant women and adults in mandatory vaccination programs.
This is a reversal of the precautionary principle that is used to protect environmental and public health.  

In addition, the Australian Health Department is claiming there is ‘conclusive evidence that there is no link between MMR vaccine and autism (HCCC Committee Report, submission 52 p.5). Yet this claim is not based on all the medical literature. It also does not address the wider issue of whether other vaccines (or ingredients such as mercury and aluminium) are causing autism, or whether the combined schedule of childhood vaccines is a cause of autism. Here is the information from the IOM:

In 2001 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) stated that an association between mercury exposure (in vaccines) and neurodevelopmental disorders including autism, attention deficit hyper-activity disorder (ADHD) and speech delay was biologically plausible. However, in 2004 the IOM concluded ‘The body of evidence favoured rejection of a causal relationship between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism and that the hypothesis generated to date, concerning the biological mechanism for such causality, are theoretical only’ [1 p3].    

In other words, the theory was not accepted because the mechanism of how vaccines cause autism wasn’t proven, not because the theory had been disproved. The IOM is claiming that it is possible that vaccines are causing autism but we don’t know how so we will not accept the theory. 

There are many independent studies that have concluded that mercury causes acrodynia, poisoning, allergic reaction, malformations, autoimmune reactions, developmental delay, tics, speech delay, language delay, attention deficit disorder and autism. There are also other ingredients of vaccines such as aluminium adjuvants that are linked to causing autoimmune diseases and other chronic illness. But these studies were not included in the analysis of the vaccine/autism link. In addition, there is no study that has investigated the combined schedule of vaccines and the link with autism to conclusively reject this theory. During the nineties many of the new vaccines contained thimerosal – an organic mercury-based compound – and chronic illness in children escalated 4 fold in Australia during this decade.
The IOM has also based its conclusions on a selection of studies, many of which were described in a US Congressional Hearing into Thimerosal in 2003 as being of poor design, under-powered and fatally flawed. In addition, the main author of the CDC funded Denmark study that has been used to debunk this theory was charged with 13 counts of fraud in 2011. This was followed in August 2014 by a CDC whistleblower who admitted manipulating the data in a 2004 study that investigated the link between MMR and Autism. An author of this study admitted that the conclusions were made by omitting some of the data.

A cover up of safety data by government regulators is facilitated by the conflicts of interest which exist on vaccine advisory boards and within the roles of government regulators of vaccines. The role of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), includes sponsoring vaccine research, approving vaccines for the market and monitoring the safety of these products in the population. These government regulators are 100% funded by the industry whose drugs they approve for the market. It is described as a cost-recovery system. The TGA has the conflicting role of monitoring the safety of the same drugs that it approves for the market for profit.  

It has been observed that the Australian government website and the media are also presenting selective research on vaccination as well as misinformation about the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Here is a link to the many websites that are presenting the concerns about vaccines. And the complete referenced article for this newsletter can be found here The Plausible link between Vaccines and Autism. Other articles confirming the plausible link between vaccines and autism can be found here.

Many countries including Australia have coercive vaccination policies that use financial incentives and jobs to encourage the use of vaccines. Australia is currently considering the removal of philosophical exemptions to vaccines as other US states have already done. Please sign this petition to stand up for your right to fully informed consent to all medical procedures – including vaccination which is a prevention used in healthy people.  

Human Rights and Vaccination

All medical procedures should be promoted on informed consent and this right is protected in all human rights codes.
This was founded in the Nuremberg code in the 1940’s to prevent experimentation on the population.
There is now an international right to informed consent that encompasses free and informed consent for all medical decision-making (Song in Habakus and Holland ch.2). The Australian government is currently considering linking the medical procedure of vaccination to childhood and adult welfare benefits with no philosophical exceptions. This is contrary to all human rights codes and it results in experimentation on the population if scientists have not disproved the link between vaccinations and serious neurological damage, including autism. Please sign this petition to protect your right to decide what you inject into your own body when governments and doctors do not supply you with the ingredients of vaccines or all the known adverse events of vaccines on the Immunise Australia Program website. They are also not provided on consent forms for school vaccination programs.    

Conflicts of Interest in Vaccination Policy

Here is a link to the new policy that will hide the perceived conflicts of interest of doctors who receive funding from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Please also take the time to read this article titled ‘Is Big Pharma addicted to Fraud’.

  1. I tried to sign the petition, but the site wouldn’t allow my vote to go through. These petition sites never work well. That is why they don’t get the support needed or reflect the true sentiment of the masses.

    It is HIGHLY UNETHICAL and WRONG for government or anyone to treat the whole population with a “one size fits all” approach. To do so is medical tyranny and pharma fascism in collusion!

  2. A growing number of highly qualified scientists and medical practitioners are voicing their concerns about the dangers of vaccination, and the growing epidemics of auto-immune diseases, allergies and autism which exploded in some western countries at about the time they greatly increased their vaccination schedules. But governments and health authorities seem intent on ignoring them, and even go to great lengths to discredit or silence them. I find this alarming, especially considering the level of fraud that has been exposed regarding studies done by pharmaceutical companies, which are what medical guidelines for drug and vaccine protocols are often based on.

  3. A more recent (2011) Institute of Medicine (IOM) report “Adverse Effects of Vaccines: Evidence and Causality” available at
    says, in part, “The committee finds that evidence convincingly supports a causal relationship between some vaccines and some adverse events—such as MMR, varicella zoster, influenza, hepatitis B, meningococcal, and tetanus-containing vaccines linked to anaphylaxis. Additionally, evidence favors rejection of five vaccine-adverse event relationships, including MMR vaccine and autism and inactivated influenza vaccine and asthma episodes. However, for the majority of cases (135 vaccine-adverse event pairs), the evidence was inadequate to accept or reject a causal relationship. Overall, the committee concludes that few health problems are caused by or clearly associated with vaccines.”

    Additionally “The M.M.R. vaccine doesn’t cause autism, and the evidence is overwhelming that it doesn’t,” Dr. Ellen Wright Clayton, the chairwoman of the panel, assembled by the Institute of Medicine, said in an interview.
