What Could the H1N1 Vaccine, Autism, and Chronic Disease Possibly Have in Common? Retroviruses.

(vactruth.com) Researchers have known for quite some time now that retroviruses are present in certain vaccines. A particular retrovirus, known as XMRV, has even made the news very recently. It has been found in certain individuals suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and in other patients suffering from other forms of debilitating disease. I’ll be frank here. Vaccines are a multibillion dollar industry. Is it possible that this new discovery will help generate even more revenue?

I began to investigate this subject further and was quite shocked by where it has led me.

By drafting my own family tree, it has become evident that a pattern of disease has emerged beginning with the very first generation vaccinated. I would like to share with you my findings.

  • Food allergies are a given in my family.
  • My father has ADHD, an enlarged prostate and successfully battled the beginning stages of testicular cancer.
  • My mother suffers from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and skin cancer.
  • My brother suffers from ADD, learning disabilities and then went on to battle meningitis and encephalitis twice in a five year period. He also suffers from skin cancer, but his case manifested nearly two decades earlier than our mother’s.
  • My sister was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. She was originally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, but later discovered that it was Lyme.
  • I suffer from depression and debilitating fatigue. In 2001, I also had symptoms of Lyme Disease, but was told that my test result was negative for it. I wasn’t aware, until recently, that the Western Blot fails to detect many cases. Unfortunately, this was the only test offered to me and paid for by my insurance company. Some of our children and spouses suffer from similar or entirely different symptoms.
  • My youngest child was the first person in our entire family history though to ever be given a diagnosis of Autism. My son began exhibiting severe side effects to the very first vaccines he had received at the age of two months (we refused the Hep B vaccine at birth). He lost the ability to nurse, could no longer hold his bottle, screamed off/on for three days, suffered from a low-grade fever, and battled congestion. He would then experience many of the same symptoms after his four month shots were administered. We stopped vaccinating after witnessing numerous seizures following his six month vaccines. The downward spiral of his health and development was just the beginning. He was beginning to fall ill weekly and would later be given a diagnosis of Autism before the age of two.


How is it that with each subsequent generation vaccinated in my family, certain individuals became more ill rather than healthier? Is this all just a coincidence?

My husband and I have tried a wide array of biomedical interventions in an attempt to heal our son. We have seen remarkable improvement by using this method, but he is by no means “cured”. Though he is no longer considered Autistic, it is grueling work to keep him that way. I have always had this nagging suspicion that we are missing something. No person should have to continue living their life this way on such a restricted diet and toxin-free lifestyle.

A recent scientific discovery may have shed some light on the subject.

Researchers are now questioning if certain medical conditions may have a viral component involved. Could Autism fall into this category as well? Could my son really be suffering from a single viral infection or are there multiple viral strains present?

“The discovery of a retrovirus in a major portion of people with either fibromyalgia (FMS) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS or ME/CFS) has made big news. But, this particular infectious agent has made headlines before – just last month, when it was linked to some cases of prostate cancer. The retrovirus is called XMRV.” (1) “The XMRV mouse retrovirus occurred in 68% of the CFS patient’s blood samples and only 4% of non-CFS patients.” (2)

Apparently, XMRV is a retrovirus that has been found in mice and men. It may even cause certain types of cancer, such as prostate cancer and may possibly be a factor in AIDS. I then thought back to my brother’s recent hospital stay. The doctors wanted to perform two separate AIDS tests on him. Thankfully, both were negative.

What exactly is a retrovirus and when was it first discovered?

“Retroviruses make up an unusual group of viruses. Their genetic material consists of two single strands of RNA linked to each other. Retroviruses also contain an essential enzyme known as reverse transcriptase.

The unusual character of retroviruses is that they have evolved a method for manufacturing protein beginning with RNA. In nearly all living organisms, the pattern by which protein is manufactured is as follows: DNA in the cell’s nucleus carries directions for the production of new protein. The coded message in DNA molecules is copied into RNA molecules. These RNA molecules then direct the manufacture of new protein. In retroviruses, that process is reversed: viral RNA is used to make new viral DNA. The viral DNA is then incorporated into host cell DNA, where it is used to direct the manufacture of new viral protein.

The first retrovirus discovered was the Rous sarcoma virus (RSV) that infects chickens. It was named after its discoverer, the American pathologist Peyton Rous (1879-1970). Other animal retroviruses are the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), which attacks monkeys, and the feline leukemia virus (FELV), which causes feline leukemia in cats. The first human retrovirus was discovered in 1980 by a research team headed by American virologist Robert Gallo (1937- ). Called human T cell leukemia virus (HTLV), this virus causes a form of leukemia (cancer of the blood) called adult T cell leukemia. In 1983-84, another human retro-virus was discovered. This virus, the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), is responsible for AIDS.” (3)

How were humans infected with retroviruses? How is it that the same species of animals used in vaccine manufacturing are also found to carry these types of viruses? Can humans transmit them via body fluids, such as semen, blood, and breastmilk? Are they inherited? More importantly, is it possible that retroviruses are alive and well inside the very vaccines that are supposed to protect us?

In 1996 the Swiss National Center for Retroviruses questioned the safety of live-virus vaccines. This organization found certain live chicken-cell derived vaccines (such as the MMR vaccine) contaminated with avian (bird) retroviral particles. However, they were not sure at that time whether or not these retroviral particles would cause disease in humans. (4) What they had concluded in 1996 was that they did not know if using chicken cells for vaccine manufacturing was safe or not.

Some readers are unfamiliar with the fact that most vaccines are currently cultured in eggs. In my last article entitled, “FDA Approved H1N1 Vaccines Contain Ingredients Known to Cause Cancer and Death” I conclusively show that vaccine manufacturers are using chicken eggs to produce the current H1N1 vaccine. Will the FDA and CDC test the novel H1N1 vaccine to insure retroviruses are absent? It seems that there would be a real possibility they would be present in the vaccine, does it not?

It is interesting though that thousands of parents have reported that their child(ren) have fallen ill after the MMR vaccine was administered. The children then somehow “mysteriously” developed a disorder known as Autism. Although my son did not receive the MMR vaccine, I was vaccinated with Rubella shortly after his delivery and then breastfed him. Could it be that Autism and certain types of retroviruses are temporally associated? Is there any truth in the statement that “Autism is genetic”?

To date, many different types of retroviruses have been identified. Some are bird (avian), some are cow (bovine), some are mouse, and some are monkey (simian). Even then, there are other types of species involved too. I also find it odd that retroviruses can even cause paralysis, wasting, ataxia, arthritis, dementia, and neuropathy. (5) Aren’t many of these same conditions also listed as possible side effects on many vaccine package inserts? Could using animals in vaccine manufacturing have anything to do with the current state of health our society is in? When you inject foreign ingredients, such as bovine serum (cow blood), monkey kidney tissue, chick kidney cells, human serum albumin (protein from human blood), mouse serum protein (protein from mouse blood), or MCR-5 (cells from aborted fetal tissue) directly into your arm or thigh, what exactly are the side effects? (6) Does it make you healthier? We are assured that it does.

Perform a thorough search online (to include peer-reviewed medical journals) for any type of chronic disease that you are wondering about. Make sure that you include the word “retrovirus” in that same search field. You will be amazed that retroviruses have been implicated in or have even proven to cause many different diseases. Search further to discover that there are countless articles in these same peer-reviewed medical journals involving vaccine research and development in the area of – you guessed it – retroviruses. The madness doesn’t stop there because gene “therapy” is also being studied. So, what does the scientific community know and what aren’t they telling the public?

I was shocked to discover that a melanoma-associated retrovirus (MelARV) has been detected in mice and men. (7) My family members suffer from skin cancer and certain vaccine manufacturers are using protein from mouse blood. (6) I haven’t heard of any mice developing skin cancer, only humans. Was this an accidental contaminant as well? How is purity determined when producing vaccines?

With the current state of affairs that not only our health, but also our economy is in, wouldn’t our tax dollars be more wisely spent in search of other possible retroviruses involved in chronic and neurological diseases? Are we even able to destroy these viruses living within us? Are vaccine manufacturers able to safely manufacture vaccine vials without the use of animals or other humans? I don’t know about you, but I honestly cannot fathom the guarantee of more vaccines or even gene therapy for my future. Let’s deal with the hand that we have been dealt with now rather than later.
