[SaneVax: What is antiphospholipid syndrome (APS)? Imagine for a minute that the antibodies produced in response to your latest vaccination begin to attack your own cells. Every living cell contains phospholipids. APS occurs when your body begins to see these phospholipids as a foreign invader and begins to destroy them. For some people, this is exactly what happens.]
Tetanus Vaccine Causes New Disease: New Vaccines Worse?
By Heidi Stevenson
The tetanus vaccine causes a new disease known both as Hughes syndrome and antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). It’s an autoimmune condition that can attack any part of the body, though is best noted for heart attacks and killing fetuses. It’s likely that APS will become more common with the new generation of vaccine adjuvants now being produced.
The sufferers of (APS) are mostly women, and its diagnosis is often made as a result of multiple pregnancy losses. As is typical of new diseases, research is focused on finding a genetic cause, in spite of the fact that the connection with vaccines is well known and documented.
As the name implies, APS is a condition in which phospholipids, natural and necessary substances required by every part of the body, is seen as an infectious agent by the immune system. So, this substance that exists in every cell becomes subject to attack. Symptoms include:
- Deep vein thrombosis (clots in veins)
- Thrombocytopenia (deficiency of blood platelets, causing bleeding & bruising)
- Pulmonary embolus (clots in the lungs)
- Heart valve abnormatilies
- Headaches & migraines
- Neurological disorders:
- Chorea (sudden uncontrollable jittery movements)
- Transverse myelitis (inflammation of the spinal cord)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Cognitive dysfunction
- Skin disorders, including mottling, ulcers, and necrosis
APS can also be diagnosed—more accurately, misdiagnosed—as lupus erythematosus, which is another vaccine-induced condition.
