Is There a Link Between Aborted Fetal DNA in Vaccines and Autism?

“Before children received so many vaccinations…only 1 child out of 10,000 was diagnosed with autism, now 1 out of 110 eight year olds is diagnosed. Is there a link? We need to find out.”

Dr. Theresa “Tracy” Deisher is a Stanford-trained molecular scientist and cell physiologist with a dozen or so patents on her resume. Her small but innovative research team may soon contribute to reducing the occurrence of autism and completely revamp the largest segment of the vaccine industry.

The measles/mumps/rubella (“MMR”) and chickenpox vaccines are about a fourth of the entire vaccine industry. They generate approximately $1.2 billion in revenue for the companies that make those two mandated vaccines. But about 10% of the 4 million new births each year won’t get those vaccines because of their parents’ distrust of the vaccines.

One of the parents’ biggest fears is the widespread but unproven fear that autism is caused by thimerosal (a mercury-based compound) in the vaccines. Dr. Deisher’s research does not find or report any thimerosal-autism link, but it does reveal a clear and direct correlation between aborted fetal DNA in vaccines and the increase in rates of autism. Fourteen vaccines use the aborted fetal DNA lines.

The opening paragraph of Dr. Deisher’s research presentation to the International Meeting for Autism Research noted, “In the countries studied, the only universal environmental cause [of autistic disorders] correlated with the changepoint years that we have identified is the introduction of vaccines containing human DNA residuals”. Her exploratory research paper therefore focused on whether the “improper integration of the residual DNA [is] a possible contributor to autism, particularly in genetically susceptible infants.”

The thesis that Dr. Deisher and her team of researchers is working on is that autism prevalence rates in the U.S. and U.K. began increasing when the childhood vaccines were switched from the type that used animal cells to a type using aborted fetal human cells. (The switch occurred because it was slightly less expensive to manufacture the vaccines with the aborted fetal human cells rather than with the animal cells.)

A chart that accompanied her presentation at the International Meeting for Autism Research certainly made her concerns clear.

The chart graphed the rates of autism on a timeline which listed important points in the chronology of the vaccines’ history, such as the dates at which the aborted fetal DNA began to be used in the manufacture of the vaccines and when the vaccines were mandated or acquired market exclusivity. The correlation is inescapably obvious: when the aborted fetal DNA vaccines became the only vaccines on the market, autism rates shot skyward.

Building on the knowledge gained from a 1996 clinical gene therapy study which found that male infants could get induced childhood leukemia due to improper DNA insertion, the Deisher researchers wondered if the same could be true for autism.

Their initial research found that, “Autism-associated genes in the X-chromosome contain multiple regions where potential insertion of short, non-host homologous DNA can occur.” Thus, they conclude, “Further work must be done to understand the implications of integrated residual human DNA to the etiology of autism.”

Dr. Deisher’s website puts the issue into clear yet blunt laymen’s terms: “By the time a child enters school they have received an average of 36 vaccinations – a number of them during the first 12 months of life. …Before children received so many vaccinations and before vaccines contained aborted fetal DNA, only 1 child out of 10,000 was diagnosed with autism, now 1 out of 110 eight year olds is diagnosed. Is there a link? We need to find out.”
