The Link between Inflammation and Autism
While the cause of autism is multi-factorial, recent research has indicated there is a link between inflammation and autism. Autistic individuals have been found to have widespread activation of inflammatory cells in the brain and many researchers have attributed this to childhood vaccinations. The rise in the number of vaccines recommended for children has corresponded with a rise in neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism. The repeated immune stimulation from the vaccines leads to excessive production of pro-inflammatory cytokines in the brain, potentially resulting in severe disruption of brain development and even neuro degradation.
