[SaneVax: Instead of seriously searching for possible causes of autism, the pharmaceutical industry has come up with the novel idea; treat one of the symptoms. Will this symptom be treated with a prescription medication for which manufacturers are liable for potential adverse effects? No! They are developing a ‘vaccine’ – a medical intervention which they can lobby to put on the childhood immunization schedule without facing the potential risk of product liability issues. What is wrong with this picture?]
Autism Vaccine: Potential to Further Disrupt Autistic Gut Biota
By Heidi Stevenson, GaiaHealth
Modern medical science is playing with fire in considering implementation of a vaccine to treat the diarrhea of autism by destroying one type of bacteria in the gut. There is simply too little understanding of the gut environment. On top of that is the potential for causing autoimmune disorders. The precautionary principle is being utterly ignored.
Playing with gut biota appears to be the next big thing in modern medicine’s treatment of autistic children. That’s the goal of a new vaccine in the pipeline for treating the diarrhea and constipation suffered by many who carry the autism diagnosis.
- Never mind that the only plausible cause of most autism is vaccines, so yet another inoculation to treat autism is, at best, problematic.
- Never mind that it’s pure hubris to believe there’s anywhere near enough understanding of gut bacteria to even consider making permanent changes to it.
- Never mind that destroying one type of bacteria will most assuredly result in unknown results as the gut organisms find a new and unpredictable balance.
- Never mind that the harm being done by ignoring the precautionary principle is destroying the lives of countless numbers of people already, and that this is yet another end run around sanity.
Clostridium bolteae are a type of bacteria found to be overabundant in the guts of autistic children with gastrointestinal problems. Therefore, a small group of scientists think it’s a good idea to make a vaccine against C. bolteae.
There is, though, no evidence demonstrating that C. bolteae is the cause of diarrhea and constipation problems. Nonetheless, that lack of knowledge hasn’t slowed down development of a vaccine against the organism.
