CRASH COURSE: Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 in SB277 California
Limited online access to 40 participants! We encourage users to gather in small groups and review the outline and links below prior to meeting so we can teach each other and discover ways to fix this very BROKEN law in a state that is forcing vaccines on our children in order to get childcare and an education! We know adult mandates are coming.
Vaccinations have been used as an essential toolin the fight against infectious diseases, and succeeded in improving public health.
However, adverse effects, including autoimmune conditions may occur following vaccinations (autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced
by adjuvants–ASIA syndrome). It has been postulated that autoimmunity could be triggered or enhanced by the vaccine immunogen contents,
as well as by adjuvants, which are used to increase the immune reaction to the immunogen. Fortunately, vaccination-related ASIA is uncommon.
Yet, by defining individuals at risk we may further limit the number of individuals developing post-vaccination ASIA.
In this perspective we defined four groups of individuals who might be susceptible to develop vaccination-induced ASIA: patients with prior
post-vaccination autoimmune phenomena, patients with a medical history of autoimmunity, patients with a history of allergic reactions,
and individuals who are prone to develop autoimmunity (having a family history of autoimmune diseases; presence of autoantibodies; carrying
certain genetic profiles, etc.).© 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
Epidemiologic Tenets of Causality
Epidemiology is the study of the causes of disease. Continually advancing for hundreds of years, it is the scientific discipline which focuses on the identification of cause and effect. Traditionally, it has been associated with the identification of the cause of disease (e.g. the identification of polluted water sources as the cause of gastrointestinal illness in London). It is also associated with the identification of an effective treatment for a disease (e.g. the role of citrus fruit ingestion in the prevention of scurvy).
Over the course of study, epidemiologists have postulated a series of tenets or conditions that must be in place in order for the causative relationship to be identified. These tenets are
Through the use of research timing and research directionality, scientists work to demonstrate these seven tenets, and thereby build a strong causative argument.
