Vaccines and Dementia - Part 2

Andrew Moulden starts this video talking about ill and damaged children: autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Asperger's, the rising numbers of which may be linked to vaccines. 

Gardasil, a vaccine to protect girls from certain types of human papillomavirus,  linked to cancer of the cervix, is reported to have caused 20 deaths and over 12,000 adverse reactions. A new report (1) states that certain constituents of the vaccine cross the blood brain barrier. 

The non-specific immune system (2) is our first line of defence against invading organisms. Vaccines, which hyper-stimulate the immune system cause too many white blood cells to be rolling along inside the blood vessel walls. Since white blood cells are larger than red blood cells, hyper-stimulated white cells can block the access of red, oxygen carrying cells, to the tiny capillaries, causing impaired oxygen delivery. 

Dr Moulden refers to the work of Professor Rudolf Virchow on the factors that lead to clotting of blood. One of those is "stasis," an interruption in the flow of blood. Since every part of the body needs oxygen, interruption to the flow, creating tiny clots in the microscopic blood vessels can lead to ischaemia or "stroke," in any part of the body. 

When potentially harmful organisms invade the body via natural routes - nose, mouth, ears etc, the immune system should kick into action to control them and this would be referred to as a "normal immune response." When organisms, live, attenuated or killed, are injected into deep muscle, the body produces an abnormal immune response, which is thought to hyper-stimulate the action of white blood cells. This, according to Dr Moulden, can lead to impaired oxygen delivery to any part of the body. Consider this in relation to particularly vascular dementia where damage to small blood vessels in the brain leads to areas of the brain being cut off from essential oxygen supply and I don't think it's beyond the realms of possibility that at least some of the vaccines we are receiving play a role in the development of dementia. 


1) The HPV-16-L1 protein is one of the antigens used in both Gardasil and Cervarix. An antigen is a toxin or other foreign substance that induces an immune response in the body. Theoretically, these antigens are not supposed to cross the blood brain barrier. However, according to a recently concluded case study this may not be the case. (

2) We are constantly being exposed to infectious agents and yet, in most cases, we are able to resist these infections. It is our immune system that enables us to resist infections. The immune system is composed of two major subdivisions, the innate or non-specific immune system and the adaptive or specific immune system (Figure 1). The innate immune system is our first line of defense against invading organisms while the adaptive immune system acts as a second line of defense and also affords protection against re-exposure to the same pathogen.
