Somali Americans develop twice the antibody response to rubella from the current vaccine compared to Caucasians in a new Mayo Clinic study on individualized aspects of immune response. A non-Somali, African-American cohort ranked next in immune response, still significantly higher than Caucasians…
Now… read this article.
“This study validates the concerns of the Somali community in Minneapolis,” comments epidemiologist Michael Rosanoff, Autism Speaks associate director for public health research. “There may be factors that put Somali-American children at higher risk of autism and autism with intellectual disability,” he says. “Or these findings may reflect better autism awareness and detection within this tight-knit community. We need to explore these possibilities, and that takes further research.”
Yes. It does take further research.
Or DOES IT???
- Somali Americans and Black Americans have greatly increased immune response to the Rubella vaccine, as compared to the immune response of Whites and Hispanics.
- Children in the Somali immigrant community have significantly higher rates of autism, as compared to the rates of autism for non-Somali children.
- As the vaccinology scientist in the video above explained, differences in the immune response are not only related to how well the vaccine works, they are also related to the frequency and severity of side-effects from the vaccine. (Many of us refer to “side effects” as “adverse reactions.” Adverse reactions may include autism.)
- The 2004 study conducted by the Vaccine Safety Research Group at The CDC found that Black children who received the MMR vaccine prior to 36 months of age had greatly increased rates of autism, as compared to their non-black peers. (That information was eliminated from the published report. You can read more about that here.)
- The MMR vaccine contains three live virus vaccines: Measles, Mumps, and Rubella.
- A growing body of research indicates that at least for many, autism may be the result of an autoimmune response (here and here for a sampling), with higher rates of autoimmune disease among family members, most especially in the mother. This strongly suggests that children who regress in early childhood and are later diagnosed with autism may do so because their immune systems do not respond in the same way TO SOMETHING, as do children who do not develop regressive autism.
What do you suppose that SOMETHING might be?
Could it be…. vaccines? If you believe what the vaccinology scientist has to say, it certainly could be.
A bit of history you might find interesting… When the MMR vaccine was first introduced, it was believed that a single administration would provide protection for life. There continued to be measles outbreaks every year, and it was discovered that approximately 10% of the population showed no sign of antibody response even though they had been vaccinated. So, instead of trying to figure out who those children were, The CDC and ACIP decided to add another MMR to the schedule for ALL children. The result is that 90% of children were OVER-VACCINATED. Guess when that happened? 1989. The huge jump in autism started around 1990.
It should be noted that the study at Mayo was ONLY looking at the Rubella vaccine. As the doctor discussed, further research will no doubt lead us to a better understanding of the differences in response to different vaccines and how things like race, gender, family medical history, and other factors such as genetic SNPs including MTHFR mutations and Cytochrome P450 mutations influence an individual’s response to a particular vaccine, a particular component of a vaccine, or to the simultaneous administration of multiple vaccines.
Until that research is done, it is unconscionable for politicians like Richard Pan to bow to pharmaceutical company pressure by pushing for mandates that would require ALL parents to vaccinate ALL children exactly according to the CDC’s Schedule. The 2015 CDC Schedule for children includes giving up to 13 vaccines at a single well-baby visit.
As noted above and in this post, the elimination of data from the 2004 MMR study has a direct bearing on whether or not parents should be forced to vaccinate their children. Dr. William Thompson was an author of that study and he says things were not reported that should have been. Those things directly affect our children – all of them, regardless of race and regardless of gender.
