How about considering the real aluminum conundrum?

The amounts of aluminum in vaccines are enough to have effects in the human body. The desired effect is to cause an immune system reaction so that a smaller amount of antigen will be recognized and antibodies produced. Right?

There are some assumptions that go along with this:


  • this amount of aluminum is low enough that it won't cause any other problems for anyone -- for example ending up in someone's brain -- causing neurological damage
  • human beings do not vary in the way they react to injected aluminum
  • activating the immune system can be managed so that it just gets activated enough to get those antibodies but doesn't get activated to the point of developing auto-immune problems
  • none of the new discoveries around the behavior of aluminum salts in the human body are relevant to the use of these salts in vaccines
Have I got this right? Or wrong? I'm open to correction if I'm misunderstanding something.

Indeed, there are some scientists who are concerned about a possible link.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26275795

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25813870

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25395340
This last one is most relevant to my theme for the thread.
The occurrence of vaccine-triggered phenomena represents a diagnostic challenge for clinicians and a research conundrum for many investigators. In this paper, we will analyze the general features of ASIA and focus on specific post-vaccination events in relation with the pediatric background. In the presence of a favorable genetic background, many autoimmune/inflammatory responses can be triggered by adjuvants and external factors, showing how the man himself might breach immune tolerance and drive many pathogenetic aspects of human diseases. Nonetheless, the elective application of ASIA diagnostic criteria to the pediatric population requires further assessment and evaluations. Additional studies are needed to help clarify connections between innate or adaptive immunity and pathological and/or protective autoantibodies mostly in the pediatric age, as children and adolescents are mainly involved in the immunization agendas related to vaccine-preventable diseases.
As I pointed out in my first post, one of the assumptions of the vaccine program is: "human beings do not vary in the way they react to injected aluminum" but of course there is a lot of variation in susceptibility to auto-immune disease and some kids may be more likely to react based on family history. Unfortunately, this isn't currently considered when the vaccine schedule is administered. It is one size fits all.
