Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are serious multisystem developmental disorders and an urgent global public health concern. Dysfunctional immunity and impaired brain function are core deficits in ASD. Aluminum (Al), the most commonly used vaccine adjuvant, is a demonstrated neurotoxin and a strong immune stimulator. Hence, adjuvant Al has the potential to induce neuroimmune disorders.
Al is a neurotoxin and the most commonly used vaccine adjuvant. Our results, supported by the Hill’s criteria for establishing causality between exposure and outcome indicate that a causal relationship may exist between the exposure to Al from vaccines and the rising prevalence of autism in the Western world.” Link To Source
