Not very often are we able to write about something uplifting so this is a welcome occasion – and we have two things to celebrate!
First is that vaccine safety issues are reaching the mainstream in the scientific community and will feature once again at the 9th International Congress on Autoimmunity taking place this spring in Nice, France. Second is that a true hero in the area of vaccine safety awareness, Claire Dwoskin, of the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute and also a donor to production of The Greater Good, will be honored at the conference with the prestigious AESKU award.
The congress was founded by the esteemed expert on autoimmunity, Professor Yehuda Shoenfeld, who is also recognized as having identified the new ASIA syndrome or autoimmune (autoinflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants. Specifically, Professor Shoenfeld and his team identified a spectrum of ailments peculiar to this new syndrome that resulted from the toxic insult of aluminum adjuvants and other toxins. Aspects of the syndrome are symptoms folks in the vaccine safety area know all too well: neurological/cognitive changes and impairment, gut problems, chronic fatigue and sleep problems, muscle weakness and pain, specific autoimmune diseases and much more.
This years’ congress will once again include hundreds of experts in their field presenting their research on over 80 autoimmunity topics to over 2,000 participants from all over the world and the congress will also feature the 3rd International Symposium on Vaccines. The Symposium on Vaccines will address topics such as the following:
Toxicity of Aluminum Adjuvants in Humans and Animals
Mild Cognitive Impairment and Vaccines
ASIA Syndrome in Sheep
Deaths Following HPV Vaccination
Hepatitis B Vaccine Accelerates Lupus-like Disease in Animals
Evolution of MS in France since Hepatitis B Vaccine
Aluminum Accumulation in the Human Central Nervous System
Interaction Between Autism-Related Genes and Aluminum
This conference will address safety issues and health concerns that the pharmaceutical industry, health authorities like the CDC, FDA, and WHO, and governments around the world refuse to do. And it is easy to understand why not as this work won’t help grow pharmaceutical industry profits or reflect well on health authorities or governments.
That’s right, there are brave scientists willing to put dogma aside in an attempt to identify to the true long term health impacts of our national vaccination programs – but they can’t get funding from the government, international health organizations, or universities. No, this research is only only happening because an incredibly principled, generous, and courageous woman, Claire Dwoskin, believes children’s health and the truth are more important than corporate profits or global health officials’ reputations and she is willing to commit many of her precious resources to finding answers.
Mrs. Dwoskin contributes to autoimmune disease research as part of her family foundation’s charitable work in the area of vaccine safety and advocacy. She and other generous donors have helped to make possible some of the most groundbreaking research into the adverse effects of vaccinations. That is why Mrs. Dwoskin is being honored with the prestigious AESKU Award for her “Lifetime Contribution to Autoimmunity. She will receive the award during the opening ceremony of the congress. And we couldn’t be happier for her.
To see some examples of this research, take a look at the following studies: Mechanisms of aluminum adjuvant toxicity and autoimmunity in pediatric populations, Slow CCL2-dependent translocation of biopersistent particles from muscle to brain, Aluminum in the central nervous system (CNS): toxicity in humans and animals, vaccine adjuvants, and autoimmunity, and Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine policy and evidence-based medicine: are they at odds? It is shameful that scientists must obtain independent funding to conduct this research but that is the state of affairs today.
So much for the popular myth that vaccine safety is just a bunch of paranoid moms when in fact dozens of physicians and scientists and a very brave philanthropist are willing to admit that something is wrong and to do something about it.
Thanks to all these scientists, and to Mrs. Claire Dwoskin.
