Vaccines & Pregnancy: Your baby is the study.
Any woman who is offered the flu shot or Tdap during pregnancy by their doctor should consider the scientific evidence that vaccines cause an inflammatory response, even during pregnancy. A study on inflammation markers in the Journal of Laboratory and Clinical Medicine proves vaccines cause inflammation. This study states
"Our findings show that the influenza vaccination causes transient changes in select markers of inflammation and lipids. Consequently, clinical and epidemiologic interpretation of the biomarkers affected should take into account the possible effects of influenza vaccination."
Another study published in 2011 by the journal Vaccine states
"Significant increases in CRP were seen at one and two days post-vaccination"
The National Institutes of Health even advocate that inflammation and higher CRP levels during pregnancy give the baby more risk of being autistic, convienently placing the blame on pregnant mothers but acknowledging that autism might be linked to inflammation from viral or bacterial infections. Live vaccines anyone? Their website states:
"Maternal inflammation during early pregnancy may be related to an increased risk of autism in children, according to new findings supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health. Researchers found this in children of mothers with elevated C-reactive protein (CRP), a well-established marker of systemic inflammation.
The risk of autism among children in the study was increased by 43 percent among mothers with CRP levels in the top 20th percentile, and by 80 percent for maternal CRP in the top 10th percentile. The findings appear in the journal Molecular Psychiatry and add to mounting evidence that an overactive immune response can alter the development of the central nervous system in the fetus.
“Elevated CRP is a signal that the body is undergoing a response to inflammation from, for example, a viral or bacterial infection,” said lead scientist on the study, Alan Brown, M.D., professor of clinical psychiatry and epidemiology at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York State Psychiatric Institute, and Mailman School of Public Health. “The higher the level of CRP in the mother, the greater the risk of autism in the child.”
So why is the CDC recommending every pregnant woman get vaccinated? There is a clear link between inflammtion and autism and they continue to ignore their own information.
