Vaccines and autism: a new scientific review
Ratajczak also looks at a factor that hasn't been widely discussed: human DNA
contained in vaccines. That's right, human DNA. Ratajczak reports that about the
same time vaccine makers took most thimerosal out of most vaccines (with the
exception of flu shots which still widely contain thimerosal), they began making
some vaccines using human tissue. Ratajczak says human tissue is currently used
in 23 vaccines. She discusses the increase in autism incidences corresponding
with the introduction of human DNA to MMR vaccine, and suggests the two could be
linked. Ratajczak also says an additional increased spike in autism occurred in
1995 when chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue.
Why could human DNA potentially cause brain damage? The way Ratajczak explained it to me: "Because it's human DNA and recipients are humans, there's homologous recombinaltion tiniker. That DNA is incorporated into the host DNA. Now it's changed, altered self and body kills it. Where is this most expressed? The neurons of the brain. Now you have body killing the brain cells and it's an ongoing inflammation. It doesn't stop, it continues through the life of that individual."
Dr. Strom said he was unaware that human DNA was contained in vaccines but told us, "It does not matter...Even if human DNA were then found in vaccines, it does not mean that they cause autism." Ratajczak agrees that nobody has proven DNA causes autism; but argues nobody has shown the opposite, and scientifically, the case is still open.
A number of independent scientists have said they've been subjected to orchestrated campaigns to discredit them when their research exposed vaccine safety issues, especially if it veered into the topic of autism. We asked Ratajczak how she came to research the controversial topic. She told us that for years while working in the pharmaceutical industry, she was restricted as to what she was allowed to publish. "I'm retired now," she told CBS News. "I can write what I want."
