Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is more prevalent now than ever before, it’s a topic rarely discussed — in previous articles I have put forward several theories as to the cause of the illness; including but not limited to exposure to toxins in pharmaceutical vaccines, the genetic and gender roles in the origins of the illness, environmental traumas, prenatal exposure to hostile chemical agents, and so on.
As a disclaimer, and to distinguish — autism has numerous manifest forms; generally recognized in problems with social communication and social interaction, and/or restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests or activities — there are numerous hues of the “autistic” profile, as per the varying extent of the condition’s causative effects.
Endocrine disruptors are likely having a major role in the onset of autistic spectrum’s symptoms in people. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that may mimic and interfere with the body’s chemical messenger system (endocrine system) and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects in both humans and wildlife — hormones, besides DNA, are directly responsible for what we are, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Our hormones can make us more masculine or more feminine, decide where our bodies should build muscle, fat, affect our gynecology, alter the structure and thought processes of our brains; dictate our personalities, our behavior, our very perception of the world around us — the list is endless, this is crucial in understanding autism as an illness and how it manifests.
There is a growing recognition that even small amounts of endocrine-disrupting chemicals can have a deleterious affect on the development of the fetus, infants and young children.
All in all, most of these “autistic” profiles, any way you look at them, are extremely damaging to the fabric of our society (no, autism is not healthy or natural) and can be pinned to a few common likely causes.
On pharmaceutical vaccines, chronic immune system dysregulation:
A common argument against people who are skeptical of or criticize vaccines is that vaccines are the “magic bullet” to our health and wellbeing, that without vaccines we’d all die in some horrendous plague. This is patently false. Vaccines, like anything we put into our bodies, should be questioned and scrutinized.
Epidemiological studies (statistical surveys) show poorer long-term health is more common among the vaccinated who survive without serious injury than children who are not vaccinated — this condition is termed “vaccinosis”. (1, 2, 3, 4).
Gian Paolo Vanoli, a scientist, journalist and opponent of vaccinations, says that vaccines make people gay. This is one just account of the detrimental hormonal influences of vaccines.
Vaccines only engage part of the immune system, they intravenously introduce pathogens; a way the body cannot manufacture a proper adaptive response, the result is autoimmune disorders. In cases of immune system over activity, the body attacks and damages its own tissues (autoimmune diseases). Heightened body inflammation over a vaccinosis sufferers’ life results in numerous illnesses.
When people are subject to repeated vaccines, they predictably simulate a situation of suppressed cell-mediated immunity and heightened antibody responses. Why? Because that’s the goal of vaccination. If you make a list of the diseases that are characterized by suppressed cell-mediated immunity and heightened humoral immunity, you’re talking health conditions like asthma, allergies, eczema and autoimmune diseases including Crohn’s, Vitiligo, Multiple Sclerosis, Sjogren’s syndrome, Hashimoto’s, etcetera.
We cannot and will not eradicate all disease with vaccines. We have merely traded acute illnesses from which most recover for chronic illnesses for which modern medicine has no cure.
- In a 1997 study in New Zealand, 1265 children were surveyed: twenty-three percent of the vaccinated children experienced asthma and thirty percent suffered from allergies. The unvaccinated children did not have a single incident of these illnesses.
- In a 2004 British Study of 30,000 children, vaccinated children had a 5.04 increased risk of asthma, while the unvaccinated only had a .36 percent prevalence.
- In a 2011 German Study of 8000 children, vaccinated children had at least two to five times more diseases and disorders than unvaccinated children.
In patients with an autoimmune disorder, the immune system can’t tell the difference between healthy body tissue and antigens that need to be attacked. The result is an immune response that destroys normal body tissues. This response is a hypersensitivity reaction similar to the response in allergic conditions. Vaccinations have been shown to induce autoimmune disorders.
Interestingly, there’s a study out of Kobe University in Japan where they took mice and put them on a rigorous vaccination program. They wanted to see if they could develop excessive antibodies as seen in autoimmune disease. And they found that at a certain threshold they could consistently and reliably induce autoimmune disease by simply giving enough vaccinations. (source)
This vaccine-induced autoimmune disease may explain the onset of autism in some people who are genetically susceptible or otherwise. Is autism an autoimmune disorder? Most likely.
The Kobe University study authors concluded:
“Systemic autoimmunity appears to be the inevitable consequenceof over-stimulating the host’s immune ‘system’ by repeated immunization with antigen to the levels that surpass the system’s self-organize criticality.”
In other words, they found that, not only is vaccination a possible or even probable cause of autoimmune disorders, but that chronic diseases are the inevitable result of vaccinations!
This study was done with mice. This begs the question, ‘Has this been replicated in humans?’ Unequivocally yes. This experiment has been done and it’s called the last 70 years.
Autoimmune diseases have increased in quantity and variety as the number of vaccinations has increased over the last 70 years. There are over 100 autoimmune diseases. Studies with monogenetic twins have revealed that genetic influences only account for 25–40% of the disease risk making environmental influences the predominant factors. (7) Regardless of genetic vulnerability, one’s environment determines whether genes for autoimmunity are expressed.
There is a reason the fastest growing subset of diseases in the US and the world are autoimmune diseases. This is because we’re producing them. It’s a growth industry. As vaccines have increased in number, so have the number of cases of autoimmune disease.
Currently, there are 38 vaccines on the recommended schedule, with even more in some US states. There are many more vaccines in development. I predict a worsening epidemic of allergies, asthma, autoimmune and other diseases caused by an atrophy of the cell-mediated immune response as more vaccines are added to the vaccine schedule. We are only seeing the tip of the iceberg with vaccine-induced disease.
In vulnerable children, vaccines cause autism, seizures, mental retardation and so many other health issues. One must also take into account the fact that for every severe reaction, vaccine provoke less acute effects like confusion, language difficulties, memory issues, irritability, mood alterations, combativeness, difficulty concentrating and behavioral problems. (source). This sounds very much like ADD and ADHD, which are sweeping the child population in epidemic proportions.

The Hyper-Masculinization Theory
The 2004 book by Simon Baron-Cohen called “Prenatal Testosterone in Mind: Amniotic Fluid Studies” and his 2003 book “The Essential Difference: Men, Women and the Extreme Male Brain”, dives into the role gestational endocrinology might have in influencing human minds, personalities and behavioral profiles.
One emerging theory suggests that autism may have something to do with high exposure to adverse hormonal influences in the womb — in effect interfering with the child’s otherwise stable development — and pushing their cognitive profile to become overly systemic, or at least inhibiting the formation of a healthy cognitive profile — the result seems to be an augmentation of the structured and logical male brain. A personality style guided overly by systems and order.
Slightly elevated levels of testosterone in fetuses have been linked to health defects and autism, and that autism-type disorders are four to nine times more common in boys.
Research indicates that mercury and aluminum components of vaccines may have synergistic toxicity with testosterone, which causes the autistic symptoms to emerge. It’s not surprising when you consider the rise of autism came in the 1930s when ethyl mercury was first commercialized in agricultural products and in vaccines.
To address people who claim that mercury isn’t in vaccines anymore; it’s simply not true that they’ve removed the mercury exposure from infant and fetal vaccines. Mercury has come out of some vaccines. It’s still in others, and they’ve targeted pregnant women with flu shots, and ethyl mercury in pregnancy is even more toxic in pregnancy than it is in infancy. Also, injected substances are more toxic than conventionally ingested substances. Mercury you consume orally is less of a danger than injected mercury.
Like it or not, vaccines are likely the largest source of one-time exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals in early infant development that may be responsible for these marginal fetal hormone-altering effects.
Natal and post-natal vaccinations are the only common logical stages wherein hormonal interference can take hold in a big way and change the biological course of someone’s life permanently.
|Preterm delivery||4.7 times higher|
|Clear-cell adenocarcinoma||40 times higher|
|Neonatal death||8 times higher|
|Loss in second trimester pregnancy||3.8 times higher|
|Ectopic pregnancy||3.7 times higher|
|Stillbirth||2.4 times higher|
|Infertility||2.4 times higher|
|Early menopause||2.4 times higher|
|Breast cancer||1.8 times higher|
For example, considering autism has been linked to testosterone, with boys having the condition far more than girls (at 80% of ASD cases being males), one study has shown that people with autism have more masculine facial structures than the average neurotypical person, pointing towards higher testosterone as a link.
A paper published in 2015 also found adults (both men and women) with higher prenatal testosterone had more masculine facial features, and that this is the group most likely to have the neurological profile known as autism.
The testosterone connection deepens, the lack of emotional intelligence in autistic people could be linked to the hyper-masculinisation associated with testosterone’s empathy-reducing effects on the brain — healthy men should have less empathy than women but should still have an emotional side; testosterone makes us more individualistic and antagonistic, hyper-masculinisation could push this to extremes. This capacity to empathize conventionally typically seems to be less prevalent in autistic people.
The hyper-specific interests of many autistic people perhaps alludes to the wiring of the archetypal male brain; the ability to focus on an objective and be undeterred by other interfering thought processes.
The effect on the autistic person’s emotional quotient seems to vary between overly sensitive and emotionally unpredictable, to overly systemic and rigid, or a combination of both, or a slight effect of any of these symptoms in the partial autistic condition known as Asperger syndrome. Interestingly, it seems to more commonly go the way of this hyper-systematized personality, though.
Returning to the testosterone link, the UWA research associate Syed Zulqarnain Gilani and his team developed a technique where 3-D photogrammetry — the science of making measurements from photographs — could score a face to be male or female, based on 11 facial features.
“First, we looked for features that distinguished between male and female,” Zulqarnain says.
“We found the autistic boys and girls had significantly more masculine gender scores than the non-autistic subjects.”
The study also found the more masculine the face, the more social communication difficulties the children in the ASD group had.
Pesticides could play a role in the autism epidemic.
Another study showed how elevated levels of a metabolite of the insecticide DDT in the blood of pregnant women are linked to increased risk for autism in the offspring.
The investigators found the odds of autism with intellectual disability in offspring were increased by greater than twofold for the mother’s DDE levels in the top quartile.
Dr. Stephanie Seneff, when asked “is there a toxic substance that is currently in our environment on the rise in step with increasing rates of autism that could explain this?” Seneff responded; “The answer is yes, I’m quite sure that I’m right, and the answer is glyphosate.” — This glyphosate is the active ingredient in RoundUp, a product made by Monsanto, which ranks as the number one herbicide used worldwide.
Russia looks to become top producer and exporter of organic food with President Vladimir Putin recently signing a new law regulating production, storing and transportation of organic produce in Russia. The decree bans agrochemicals, pesticides, antibiotics growth stimulators and hormones. Many countries have banned or are taking steps to ban glyphosate use, and move to cleaner foods.
Pregnancy is a delicate process that cannot be interrupted.
During pregnancy the hormonal levels of the mother are in flux, it’s a phase in which her body is carefully assembling new life in the womb.
Natal vaccines, such as the flu jab, cause a shock to the system that changes the hormonal profile of the pregnant mother, the developing child takes the biggest hit.
Did I mention that a stunning finding revealed that autism is highest in areas with the highest vaccination rates? Correlation or causation?
Vaccines and pesticides also have a endocrine-disrupting effect on the gestating mother’s child, the evidence supports this:
For example, in 2004, Alan Cantwell, M.D. raised concerns that 74 million children in Africa were discovered to be contaminated with a variety of female sex hormones, and that the injection of these was linked to an increase of sterility. Estradiol (E2), also spelled oestradiol, is an estrogen steroid hormone and the major female sex hormone, what is it doing in vaccines? — without a doubt I would link this to the rise in autism, homosexuality and gender-queerness.
The formative development of a person, involving the early biological emergence of a person’s distinct gender is an especially susceptible phase to disruption.
Aluminium and mercury, toxic adjuvants present in some vaccines are well-known potent endocrine disruptors. It’s no wonder many autistic kids show the signs of hormonal abnormality in their facial structure, as already mentioned – and that’s just the one’s that show an outward sign, it’s likely most have these irregularities but they may not be as outwardly noticeable.
Tyrone Hayes, University of CA professor was asked to study a chemical called atrazine, a widely-used herbicide manufactured by Syngenta. He found unexpected results: that it causes sexual abnormality in frogs and that it could potentially cause the same effects in humans (frogs changing from male to female). Herbicides like atrazine are detectable on and in most food — including food eaten by pregnant mothers and transferred to unborn babies.
Vaccines with heavy metals and viruses that cause inflammation, pesticides and any other similarly unnoticeable agents — the hormonal profile of the gestating mother will be forced to change to deal with the hostility, it looks like this may be at the expense of the fetus’ health — in nature, the mother’s body takes precedence over the unborn child, the mother’s body is the crucial supply line. For example, Dr. Deepak Chopra has claimed that hundreds of studies have confirmed that chemicals released by the pregnant mother’s body are transported into the womb and affect the unborn baby.
The start of the autism epidemic correlates closely with the phased introduction of the Hib vaccine plus the HepB vaccine in the late 1980’s/early 1990’s. At that time, both the Hib and the HepB contained high amounts of mercury and aluminum which significantly increased the exposure to infants to both of these toxic chemicals at a far earlier age than ever before (HepB: at birth and then 1-2, 4, and 6 months; Hib: 2, 4, and 6 months).
Although mercury has been reduced or removed in some vaccines since 2003, mercury is still a component in most flu vaccines. The number of infant vaccines with aluminum-based adjuvants administered by 18 months of age has increased by 54% since 2000, and the amount of aluminum administered has increased by 23%.
In an article for Mothering Magazine, Dr. Bob Sears warned about the aluminum content found in infant vaccines:
In other words, a newborn who gets a Hepatitis B injection on day one of life would receive 250 mcg of aluminum. This would be repeated at one month with the next Hep B shot. When, at two months, a baby gets its first big round of shots, the total dose of aluminum could vary from 295 mcg (if a non-aluminum HIB and the lowest-aluminum brand of DTaP are used) to a whopping 1225 mcg (if the Hep B vaccine is given along with the brands with the highest aluminum contents). These doses are repeated at four and six months. With most subsequent rounds of shots, a child would continue to get some aluminum throughout the first two years. But the FDA recommends that premature babies, and anyone with impaired kidney function, receive no more than 10 to 25 mcg of injected aluminum at any one time.
So there’s how it is; aluminum and mercury are both endocrine disruptors, as well as neurotoxins, and both can be particularly toxic when exposed to testosterone — is someone targeting men by needlessly putting these substances in vaccines? Of course.
There is no end to the tricks that endocrine disruptors can play on our bodies: increasing production of certain hormones; decreasing production of others; imitating hormones; turning one hormone into another; interfering with hormone signaling; telling cells to die prematurely; competing with essential nutrients; binding to essential hormones; accumulating in organs that produce hormones.
Vaccines may cause the immune system to attack itself.
In what is called an autoimmune response — the fact aborted fetal cells are included in vaccines means the body could see healthy cells as hostile and then engage in self-destructive behavior.
Here is a video that suggests that nagalase is intentionally put into vaccines to weaken the immune system. Dr. Bradstreet found that autistic children tended to have a highly elevated level of nagalase in their blood. He claimed to have tested over 400 autistic children for the viral marker nagalase, and found that close to 80% of them had significantly elevated levels. This would make sense as part of a dumbing down and depopulation agenda as described in THRIVE (at 1:33:55). Bradstreet treated 1,100 patients with GcMAF, with an 85% response rate.
“GcMAF and/or oral Colostrum MAF macrophage activation therapy is indicated in the treatment of any diseases where there is immune dysfunction or where the immune system is compromised,” explains the website of a clinic out of Japan that sells an oral form of GcMAF.
Here’s a diagram of how GcMAF works:
What is GcMAF useful for?
One of the things that GcMAF does is kill a protein made by all cancer cells called nagalase, which is excreted by cancer cells to disarm the human immune system. Nagalase causes immunodeficiency
Besides cancer, the conditions listed as appropriate candidates for benefit from GcMAF treatment include:
GcMAF is also showing itself to be effective for treating autism.
“In a study of 1500 children with autism, 85% had high levels of viruses and a compromised immune system. All 1500 received weekly GcMAF injections and 70% of the children responded to the treatment with reduced symptoms and another 15% made full recoveries. The other 15% did not respond. It was stated that the reduction of autistic symptoms is permanent provided that GcMAF has been taken long enough for the body to produce its own GcMAF which typically takes 24 weeks.”
I personally know individuals who have been dramatically helped by taking GcMAF. Marco Ruggerio delivered a paper at the AutismOne conference in May of 2015 — just before these murders started. Over the summer, patients who were using it had their supplies cut off from their original source in Switzerland where the company was being harassed and threatened. Subsequent shipments from another country were intercepted at the U.S. border, though eventually allowed through. Authorities in the UK have also been confiscating this beneficial compound.
Introducing foreign bodies via vaccination to instill a state of inflammation.
Text from James A. Miller
During the early 1990s, the World Health Organization (WHO) has been
overseeing massive vaccination campaigns against tetanus in a number
of countries, among them Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Philippines. In
October 1994, HLI received a communication from its Mexican
affiliate, the Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, regarding that country’s
anti-tetanus campaign. Suspicious of the campaign protocols, the
Comite obtained several vials of the vaccine and had them analyzed by
chemists. Some of the vials were found to contain human chorionic
gonadotrophin (hCG), a naturally occurring hormone essential for
maintaining a pregnancy.
hCG and anti-hCG antibodies.
In nature the hCG hormone alerts the women’s body that she is
pregnant and causes the release of other hormones to prepare the
uterine lining for the implantation of the fertilized egg. The rapid
rise in hCG levels after conception makes it an excellent marker for
confirmation of pregnancy: when a woman takes a pregnancy test she is
not tested for the pregnancy itself, but for the elevated presence of
However, when introduced into the body coupled with a tetanus toxoid
carrier, antibodies will be formed not only against tetanus but also
against hCG. In this case the body fails to recognize hCG as a friend
and will produce anti-hCG antibodies. These antibodies will attack
subsequent pregnancies by killing the hCG which naturally sustains a
pregnancy; when a woman has sufficient anti-hCG antibodies in her
system, she is rendered incapable of maintaining a pregnancy.
HLI reported the sketchy facts regarding the Mexican tetanus vaccines
to its World Council members and affiliates in more than 60
countries. Soon additional reports of vaccines laced with hCG
hormones began to drift in from the Philippines, where more than 3.4
million women were recently vaccinated. Similar reports came from
Nicaragua, which had conducted its own vaccination campaign in 1993.
The known facts.
Here are the known facts concerning the tetanus vaccination campaigns
in Mexico and the Philippines:
* Only women are vaccinated, and only the women between the ages of
15 and 45. (In Nicaragua the age range was 12-49). But aren’t men at
least as likely as young women to come into contact with tetanus? And
what of the children? Why are they excluded?
* Human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) hormone has been found in the
vaccines. It does not belong there -in the parlance of the O.J.
Simpson murder trial, the vaccine has been “contaminated.”
* The vaccination protocols call for multiple injections-three within
three months and a total of five altogether. But, since tetanus
vaccinations provide protection for ten years or more, why are
multiple inoculations called for?
* WHO has been actively involved for more than 20 years in the
development of an anti-fertility vaccine utilizing hCG tied to
tetanus toxoid as a carrier-the exact same coupling as has been found
in the Mexican-Philippine-Nicaragua vaccines.
The anti-fertility gang.
Allied with the WHO in the development of an anti-fertility vaccine
(AFV) using hCG with tetanus and other carriers have been UNFPA, the
UN Development Programme (UNDP), the World Bank, the Population
Council, the Rockefeller Foundation, the All India Institute of
Medical Sciences, and a number of universities, including Uppsala,
Helsinki, and Ohio State. The U.S. National Institute of Child
Health and Human Development (part of NIH) was the supplier of the
hCG hormone in some of the AFV experiments.
The WHO began its “Special Programme” in human reproduction in 1972,
and by 1993 had spent more than $356 million on “reproductive health”
research. It is this “Programme” which has pioneered the
development of the abortificant vaccine. Over $90 million of this
Programme’s funds were contributed by Sweden; Great Britain donated
more than $52 million, while Norway, Denmark and Germany kicked in
for $41 million, $27 million, and $12 million, respectively. The
U.S., thanks to the cut-off of such funding during the Reagan-Bush
administrations, has contributed “only” $5.7 million, including a new
payment in 1993 by the Clinton administration of $2.5 million. Other
major contributors to the WHO Programme include UNFPA, $61 million;
the World Bank, $15.5 million; the Rockefeller Foundation, $2.5
million; the Ford Foundation, over $1 million; and the IDRC
(International Research and Development Centre of Canada), $716.5
WHO and Philippine Health Department excuses.
When the first reports surfaced in the Philippines of tetanus toxoid
vaccine being laced with hCG hormones, the WHO and the Philippine
Department of Health (DOH) immediately denied that the vaccine
contained hCG. Confronted with the results of laboratory tests which
detected its presence in three of the four vials of tetanus toxoid
examined, the WHO and DOH scoffed at the evidence coming from
“right-to-life and Catholic” sources. Four new vials of the tetanus
vaccine were submitted by DOH to St. Luke’s (Lutheran) Medical
Center in Manila-and all four vials tested positive for hCG!
From outright denial the stories now shifted to the allegedly
“insignificant” quantity of the hCG present; the volume of hCG
present is insufficient to produce anti-hCG antibodies.
But new tests designed to detect the presence of hCG antibodies in
the blood sera of women vaccinated with the tetanus toxoid vaccine
were undertaken by Philippine pro- life and Catholic groups. Of
thirty women tested subsequent to receiving tetanus toxoid vaccine,
twenty-six tested positive for high levels of anti-hCG antibodies! If
there were no hCG in the vaccine, or if it were present in only
“insignificant” quantities, why were the vaccinated women found to be
harboring anti-hCG antibodies? The WHO and the DOH had no answers.
New arguments surfaced: hCG’s apparent presence in the vaccine was
due to “false positives” resulting from the particular substances
mixed in the vaccine or in the chemicals testing for hCG. And even if
hCG was really there, its presence derived from the manufacturing
But the finding of hCG antibodies in the blood sera of vaccinated
women obviated the need to get bogged down in such debates. It was no
longer necessary to argue about what may or may not have been the
<cause> of the hCG presence, when one now had the <effect> of the
hCG. There is no known way for the vaccinated women to have hCG
antibodies in their blood unless hCG had been artificially introduced
into their bodies!
Why a tetanus toxoid “carrier”?
Because the human body does not attack its own naturally occurring
hormone hCG, the body has to be fooled into treating hCG as an
invading enemy in order to develop a successful antifertility vaccine
utilizing hCG antibodies. A paper delivered at the 4th International
Congress of Reproductive Immunology (Kiel, West Germany, 2629 July
1989) spelled it out: “Linkage to a carrier was done to overcome the
immunological tolerance to hCG.”
Vaccine untested by Drug Bureau.
After the vaccine controversy had reached a fever pitch, a new
bombshell exploded: none of the three different brands of tetanus
vaccine being used had ever been licensed for sale and distribution
or registered with the Philippine Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD), as
required by law. The head of the BAFD lamely explained that the
companies distributing these brands “did not apply for
registration.” The companies in question are Connaught
Laboratories Ltd. and Intervex, both from Canada, and CSL
Laboratories from Australia.
It seemed that the BAFD might belatedly require re-testing, but the
idea was quickly rejected when the Secretary of Health declared that,
since the vaccines had been certified by the WHO -there they are
again!-there was assurance enough that the “vaccines come from
Just how “reputable” one of the manufacturers might be is open to
some question. In the mid-’80s Connaught Laboratories was found to
be knowingly distributing vials of AIDS-contaminated blood
At this juncture, evidence is beginning to appear from Africa.
HLI has called for a Congressional investigation of the situation,
inasmuch as nearly every agency involved in the development of an
anti-fertility vaccine is funded, at least in part, with U.S.

3 A call placed by this writer on 5 May 1995 to the Montgomery County
(Maryland) Health Department, Epidemology Division-Infectious
Diseases – Adult Immunizations, elicited the following information:
Q. For how long a time does the tetanus vaccination offer protection?
A. 10 years.
Q. Have you ever heard of any adult requiring three tetanus
vaccinations within a 3 or 4 month time period, and a total of 5
vaccinations in all within a year or so?
A. Whaaaat! Never. No way!
Reports from the Philippines appear to confirm the 10-year immunity
afforded by tetanus toxoid vaccinations: prior to the campaigns begun
in 1993, the so-called booster shots were given only every 10-years.
