MMR = Crohns or Autism ?
Do I at TCCCUK think there is a connection between MMR and Crohns or Autism as Dr Andrew Wakefield ?
I most definately do, and I think it is linked to the immune system, and it's ability not to cope with the 3 viruses in MMR at one time. We know that MAP - Mycobacterium avium sub species Paratuburculosis, the bacteria that causes Crohns lives in the gut, and anywhere through the digestive tract. We know that this MAP bacteria is extremely strong, survives pasteurisation of milk and other dairy products, and can take up to 2 years to develop in the human being. It can be passed from mother to baby before a child is born, via the umbilical cord, and MAP puts a huge strain on a baby's immune system, as well as an older child or adult. A weakened immune system could quite easily allow any of these MMR viruses to affect the baby's health, and we know traces of these MMR viruses uses have been found in bone areas of babies as well.
Would I let any of my children or granchildren have an MMR jab, knowing what I know now ? no I would certainly advise against it, and I have, to have only single injections, so the baby's immune system has a chance to fight all these viruses seperately, one at a time.
A baby's or child's immune system needs to be operating at 100% to take on a virus or even the MAP, so not to affect the baby's or child's health.
If there is any history of Crohns or Autism in the family, I would strongly advise against this MMR Triple Jab.
Below is the latest article from The Lancet, casting more doubt on the MMR TRIPLE JAB.
AUTISM: New study puts the MMR vaccine right back in the spotlight.
Just when doctors had hoped the MMR-autism debate had finally been put to rest, researchers have discovered that autism is far more prevalent in British children than had been previously thought.
They reckon that autism occurs in more than 1 per cent
of all school-age children, which means it is 25 times more common than previous estimates had supposed.
Some critics argue that the researchers have taken a wider definition of autism this time, which embraces problems of social interaction as well as the more traditional one of learning difficulties. But when researchers re-analysed their findings and used the narrower definition, they still found that autism
was five times
more prevalent than it was before.
Researchers don't know if more children are being born with autism
, which leaves open the possibility that it is something they are acquiring as they grow. If this is the case, the focus goes right back onto the MMR vaccine as a possible cause.
Concerned parents will have already noted the General Medical Councilís sudden reticence to proceed with a hearing against Dr Andrew Wakefield
, who came up with scientific evidence for a possible link.
This, together with the new research findings, will hardly fill them with enthusiasm to rush to the surgery for their child's next shot.
