One Doctor’s Surprising Answer to the Epidemic of Autoimmunity and Chronic Disease

Thomas Cowan, MD, argues for a direct causal relationship to a corresponding increase in the number of vaccines American children typically receive―approximately 70 vaccine doses by age eighteen. The goal of these vaccines is precisely what we’re now seeing in such abundance among our chronically ill children: the provocation of immune response.

Thomas Cowan’s latest book is one I can’t wait to read. I want to understand all about autoimmunity and how our increasing insane vaccine schedule is implicated.

Cowan begins his book with a description of how when he was growing up he never heard of children with chronic illness or of children who took prescription medicines.

Many of us had horrible diets, yet chronic disease among children was relatively unknown. No one had ever heard of autism, let alone a family member with autism.

I have to agree with his childhood recollections. Children with cancer or  an autoimmune disease was unheard of in 1950s Australia.

In his work as a medical practitioner Thomas Cowan has had the experience of treating vaccinated children, partially vaccinated children and the unvaccinated. He writes that he rarely saw an unvaccinated child with any chronic illness however the same could not be said for those who were vaccinated many of whom were suffering from asthma, eczema, seizures and gut problems. This state of affairs he believes:

corresponded with the introduction in the late 1980s to the mid 1990s of certain adjuvants and excipients, as well as the introduction of ever more vaccines.

During his practice he has treated many children who had childhood infectious diseases such as whooping cough, chicken pox, rubella, mumps and measles. These children recovered well and did not develop complications.

Decades later:

1 in 2.5 children have an allergy

1 in 6  children has a developmental disability

1 in 9 children has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder ADHD

1 in 11 children has asthma

1 in 13 children has severe food allergies

1 in 36 children has autism

He calls it ‘a national emergency’.

How did we get to such a state where we have so many sick children?

Cowan writes that the cause is environmental requiring us to do something about it. The problem as he sees it stems from the huge drop in infectious disease which ‘train the immune system’.

In writing Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness Cowan wanted to explain the nature of disease.

when we get sick there is a very certain sequence of events that happens: We are fine, then we get a fever, or we get hot then we get snot, and then we get better

In an interview with Dr Joseph Mercola he explains that he often wondered why disease follows this progression. His curiosity led to his researching the nature of fever along with the working of the cell and why our bodies follows this sequence of events in relation to disease.

Once you realise the wonder of this sequence of the events you can understand what happens when something is done to interfere with nature which Cowan describes as ‘thwarting of the sequence’. This is what happens in the context of vaccines leading  to chronic disease. Vaccines cause a distortion in the immune response and increases the risk of cancer.

What happens inside the body of a child who gets a new viral disease.

When a new virus enters the body it distorts the cells whereupon the body begins its attack and produces a cell mediated immune response. This system consists of white blood cells which attack the infected cells, chewing them up and spitting them out – this is ‘snot’. This process takes about 5-10 days and over this time we consider the person affected ‘sick’ and all the while the virus has promoted a cell mediated response which clears the body of the virus and dead cells and rejuvenates the cells.

The humoral system which responds by making antibodies to the virus is also activated taking place after the cell mediated response. If the child meets a particular virus again then he/she will not get sick. This production of antibodies takes place around 6-8 weeks after the infection. ‘It is almost a 100% fool proof system’, says Cowan.

These are the two parts of our immune system.

When we vaccinate there is no cell mediated immune response. Vaccines provoke an antibody reaction but because there is no cell mediated response the immunity wears off and boosters are required. Adjuvants such as aluminium are required to stimulate this antibody reaction.

Autoimmune diseases

Such as Graves’ disease, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.

 these diseases are characterised by an excessive antibody reaction

In autoimmunity there is non specific activation of the humoral immune system caused by the adjuvants such as aluminium.  Vaccines stimulate humoral antibodies without a prior cell-mediated response.

There has never been until about the 1940s a situation where you have the stimulation of one without the other. So that’s what happens with vaccines, the whole point of a vaccine is to stimulate the humoral immunity, the humoral antibodies without a prior cell-mediated response.

It is not enough to just put the antigen in a vaccine along with saline. To make the vaccine stimulate humoral immunity, that is to produce antibodies, adjuvants such as aluminium or other irritants such as formaldehyde and mercury are necessary for the immune system to react. These are neurotoxins and should have no place in the human body.

The diseases that are characterized by suppressed cell-mediated immunity and heightened humoral immunity, you’re talking things like asthma, allergies, eczema and autoimmune diseases including Crohn’s, colitis, MS [multiple sclerosis], Sjogren’s syndrome, Hashimoto’s, etcetera. All of these are characterized by increased antibody production – that is what we mean by an autoimmune
disease.

Cowan states that the the fastest growing type of diseases are autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases are soaring globally and together affect as many as one in five Americans today. Thomas Cowan’s  Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness   explains how our wonderful immune system has been ravaged by vaccines and includes chapters on treatment and diet protocols for autoimmune disease.

A must-read book on vaccines and autoimmunity and a history lesson on natural immunity that we all need to read and share.

HPV vaccines and autoimmunity

The author of On Vaccines, Adjuvants and Autoimmunity, Christina England fears that doctors have little idea who is likely to suffer a vaccine injury or even why they occur. Nor do they know what effect vaccines have on the immune system. It would seem fairly obvious that there must be a link for in the words of the World Health Organisation a vaccine stimulates the immune system to recognize the agent as foreign, destroy it, and ‘remember’.

The Australasian society of clinical immunology and allergy define autoimmune diseases as a broad range of related diseases in which a person’s immune system produces an inappropriate response against its own cells, tissues and/or organs, resulting in inflammation and damage. There are over eighty different autoimmune diseases with some affecting just one part of the body such as Type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis, and others affecting multiple organs and tissues such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematous (SLE). The reports of adverse events seen in girls and boys after having been given Gardasil vaccination number well over 76000 and include all kinds of autoimmune diseases including Type 1 diabetes, thyroid disorders, arthritis, lupus and gastrointestinal disorders.

The authors of a study called Vaccines, adjuvants and autoimmunity have found that Vaccines and autoimmunity are linked fields. They report that: Vaccines are able to elicit the immune system towards an autoimmune reaction. It is vital that we understand the part that vaccines such as Gardasil play in the development of  autoimmune diseases for they are increasing all over the globe and currently affect one in five Americans. In the study the immunologists have reviewed cases of ‘vaccine-induced immunity’ explaining the process as Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants. Adjuvants are added to vaccines in order to stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies but in some people they cause immune reactions and symptoms that manifest as autoimmune disease. The heavy metal aluminium is used as an adjuvent in Gardasil. Two hundred and twenty-five micrograms of amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate (AAHS) are added to each of the three shots of the vaccine. The latest HPV vaccine Gardasil 9 contains 500 micrograms of (AAHS) which is given as two or three shots. Amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate has been found to produce more antibodies and a prolonged antibody level.

And there’s more to be learnt about the development of autoimmunity.  Norma Erickson explains the process of molecular mimicry as it applies to Gardasil in a presentation Humphries/Erickson – What Biologically Plausible Mechanisms of Action are Health Agencies Ignoring? We all have proteins in our bodies and within these proteins there are 82 peptides. One of the antigens in Gardasil is the HPV 16 LI protein which almost identically matches 34 of these peptides. The importance of this information is that as Erickson explains: ‘It is extremely possible that when you develop an antibody to the HPV 16 protein you are also developing an antibody reaction to your own system in multiple locations. The number of viral matches and locations makes the occurrence of autoimmune cross reactions in the human body following HPV 16 vaccination almost unavoidable’.

We live in a toxic world, one in which HPV vaccines are given to young people some who may already be dealing with compromised immune systems. The vaccine continues to be given despite the thousands of reports of ill health occurring in many young girls and boys who have had this vaccine. Medwatch Japan reports that Gardasil has 26 times the amount of adverse events than occur after the influenza shot. The story of Gardasil begins with the history of cervical cancer which is explored in Gardasil: Fast – Tracked and Flawed. Cervical cancer rose from a disease of obscurity to one of mainstream prominence. Gardasil was fast-tracked through the FDA, a process usually reserved for life threatening diseases to fill an unmet and urgent medical need. There was no unmet need for Pap smear programs and improved living conditions in developed nations had already reduced cervical cancer incidence and mortality markedly.

Opposition to this vaccination program continues to grow and hopefully it is only a matter of time before the health authorities put a stop to it.
