A recent small study out of Tufts University Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts has concluded that, “inflammation may be the main driver behind autism.”1 As reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers compared the brains of 16 deceased male, Caucasian children between the ages of three and 14. Eight of the children had autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and eight did not. The study determined that the children with ASD all had increased levels of Interleukin-18 (IL-18), a protein known to trigger a severe inflammatory response.
The areas of the brain most prominently affected were the amygdala, responsible for processing emotions such as fear, anger, and pleasure; and the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which is plays a role in a number of cognitive functions of the brain including memory maintenance, attention, behavior modification, and evaluation of rewards. Damage to this area of the brain can result in deficits in social cognition, impulse control and multi-sensory integration.2 3
In 2008, Loe Fisher published Vaccines, Autism and Chronic Inflammation: The New Epidemic, which provided an analysis and summary of studies in the medical literature documenting complications of infectious diseases and vaccinations that produce chronic inflammation in the body. She observed:
A review of more than a century of medical literature reveals ample evidence that neurological and immune system dysfunction caused by infectious diseases are often identical to neurological and immune system dysfunction caused by vaccines created using the same viruses and bacteria. A host/disease or host/vaccine interaction causes inflammation, which is acute at first, and becomes chronic rather than resolving and leaving the host with good health. In both cases, the end result is unresolved inflammation leading to immune mediated brain dysfunction of varying degrees of severity, which is the same profile many have observed in children with autism spectrum disorders.13

Translation? Vaccines trigger the immune system artificially and chronically, thus autism appears as a symptom of chronic vaccine originated inflammation.
