When my wife was diagnosed CIS (Clinically Isolated Syndrom) which is a first course of the MS disease progression, I was bound and determined to discover what caused, or what was causing this disease to attack her.
One of the first things I discovered was that the disease was more likely to occur in women. The further a person lives from the equator would also raise the chances of MS significantly. According to http://www.healthline.com: “Above the thirty-seventh parallel there are between 110 and 140 cases per 100,000 people, and below the thirty-seventh parallel there are between 57 and 78 cases per 100,000 people, that is nearly double the cases of MS in the northern half of the United States.”

My wife fit the stats, a female that grew up above the thirty-seventh parallel. What troubled me though, as there are a lot of females that lived above the 37th parallel that do not have MS.
The anti-vaccine movement has been gaining a lot of traction, and the topic is very divisive. I found research and discussions that claim that vaccines may MS. One of the issues is that type of research is difficult to fund.
I do not dispute the importance of vaccines, or their effectiveness. I do believe what the pro-vaccine people do not acknowledge is the additives in the vaccines that could possibly be causing auto-immune diseases such as MS.
This information straight from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website was enough to cement my own decision of not to be vaccinated again.
“Some vaccines made from weakened or dead germs contain naturally occurring adjuvants and help the body produce a strong protective immune response.”
What exactly is an adjuvant? The CDC continues: “Aluminum gels or aluminum salts are vaccine ingredients that have been used in vaccines since the 1930s. Small amounts of aluminum are added to help the body build stronger immunity against the germ in the vaccine. Aluminum is one of the most common metals found in nature and is present in air, food, and water. The amount of aluminum present in vaccines is low and is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).”
This is the same FDA that says these eleven things on this website are just fine: https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/11-revolting-things-government-lets-in-your-food/
I see a future where big pharma influence is removed from the FDA’s decision-making process and the people’s health interests will be placed before jobs and money.
Until next time,
