How Vaccines Damage Your Brain!
Although he graduated from medical school believing in the vital importance of vaccinations, after 20 years in practice — and encountering hundreds of vaccine casualties — Dr Joseph Mercola was forced to review the evidence. It led him to a completely different view on the subject.
One of the tragedies that he found was that those who were at the greatest risk of injury from vaccines — children and the elderly — are the ones who receive the most vaccines, often being given multiple shots at one time.
It is also important to understand that autism was virtually unheard of before vaccinations; its emergence precisely parallels mass vaccination programs. ADD and learning disorders in children are also now being traced to childhood vaccinations. Brain damage, at any age, is by far the most common adverse reaction associated with vaccinations, although their actual numbers are not often reported accurately.
Furthermore, all vaccines are immunosuppressive, meaning that they lower your immune functions.
The chemicals and adjuvants in the vaccines depress your immune system;
The virus present depresses immune function, and
The foreign DNA/RNA from animal tissues depresses immunity.
Vaccines, Depression and Neurodegeneration After Age 50
In America today, an estimated 40 million adults suffer from a major depressive and/or anxiety disorder. While long considered the result of a deficiency of certain neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, there is growing evidence that the primary cause is low-grade, chronic brain inflammation, and that inflammatory cytokines can lower serotonin significantly, and for long periods, by a number of different mechanisms. Other ways this inflammation is expressed are Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.
Vaccines, Depression and Neurodegeneration After Age 50: by Russell L. Blaylock, M.D., CCN.
A board-certified neurosurgeon, Dr Russell L. Blaylock, M.D., CCN has also written over 30 papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. He is a recognized expert in the field of excitotoxicity, and his papers on the connection between excitotoxicity and fluoride neurotoxicity and autism and the Gulf War Syndrome have received praise from leading authorities in each of these areas of research.
In an article written exclusively for the Mercola.com website, the author reviews the functions and impact of various agents on depression and neurodegeneration, including:
The impact of MSG on your brain and mood
The link between elevated brain glutamate and inflammation
The connections between pesticides and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease
How vaccinations cause brain inflammation
The impact of an expanding vaccine schedule for the elderly
The shocking truth, linking brain inflammation to neurodegenerative diseases
How vaccine additives such as mercury and aluminum impact your brain health
The real danger of live virus vaccines
Studies have shown that, when the brain is exposed to an immune stimulant or a low dose of pesticide, little damage occurs. However, when the brain is first subjected to an immune stimulant and then the pesticide, a great number of brain cells were destroyed. Since vaccines contain adjuvants that stimulate an immune response, increasing the level of inflammatory immune cytokines, the brain becomes hypersensitive to toxins, resulting in these neurological diseases or other brain injury.
Another issue is that inflammatory cytokines cause the brain to release higher levels of the neurotransmitter glutamate (the same glutamate found in MSG, hydrolyzed proteins, calcium or sodium casienate, soy protein isolate, vegetable protein concentrate or isolate, etc.). Existing outside the cells, glutamate is very toxic to the brain, mainly through a process called excitotoxicity.
The following is a short version of how this works:
Vaccines and the body's immune response
Vaccines are composed of two parts: the agent you want to vaccinate against (like the flu) and an adjuvant, which stimulates the immune system, making it react as intensely and for as long as possible. These adjuvants are composed of things like mercury, aluminum compounds, MSG and such.
When the body's immune response is activated by a vaccination, there is an inflammatory response. But, the brain has its own immune system, intimately connected to the body's and, when the body's immune system is stimulated through a vaccine, they brain's immune system is also activated. A number of very harmful chemicals are secreted, including inflammatory cytokines, chemokines, complement, free radicals, lipid peroxidation products and two excitotoxins — glutamate and quinolinic acid.
Normal immune response and immune overactivity
When the body is invaded by a normal pathogen, this immune response settles down after a relatively short time, and the brain can go about it's business of repair. But, in the case of a single vaccination, the brain might remain in a state of immune overactivation for as long as two years, during which time the brain continues to pour out destructive chemicals. If the immune system is activated by a vaccine again too soon, the results can be devastating.
This problem is compounded by the practice of giving multiple vaccines during a single office visit. Instead of a single powerfully-destructive dose of immune adjuvants, your body and brain are assaulted by a massive dose, which activates the brain's immune system to dangerous levels.
But, this chronic brain inflammation leaves you susceptible to more than just another vaccine. It also raises the risk of developing neurological disorders from exposure to enviro-toxins that otherwise might not pose any great risk. Also, any exposure to infection or head injury will also result in increased brain inflammation, making you more likely to develop one of the neurodegenerative diseases.
And, there are other dangers to your brain from vaccination.
Powerful brain toxins in vaccines
Most vaccines contain aluminum compounds. A multitude of studies have shown that aluminum, especially if combined with fluoride, is a powerful brain toxin that accumulates in the brain, priming the brain's immune system to overreact. Then, the next vaccine acts to trigger the enhanced inflammatory reaction, releasing the excitotoxins, glutamate and quinolinic acid.
With vaccines that contain mercury (either as an adjuvant or in the preservative thimerosal), a number of enzymes can be poisoned, both systemically and in the brain, and can inhibit the brain's ability to regulate glutamate levels. This triggers excitotoxicity, increases brain free radicals and lipid peroxidation products, inhibits critical brain enzymes, inhibits antioxidant enzymes and impairs DNA repair. The flu vaccine contains enough mercury to do all of these things.
And, when the mercury in your vaccine is combined with the aluminum also found there, it is infinitely more toxic.
Add to this the fact that up to 60% of vaccines are contaminated with foreign viruses or viral components. These viral fragments can trigger chronic brain inflammation and excitotoxicity. And, the live viruses contained in vaccines can enter the brain, where they reside for a lifetime, causing a smoldering destruction of tissues, without obvious symptoms of infection. This can trigger brain inflammation and degeneration that is most often attributed to old age or heredity.

Re: How Vaccines Damage Your Brain!
Well, thank you for that. That explains alot :) We're told infants and the elderly are at the highest risk and should be vaccinated.
