Antidepressants in Pregnancy Tied to Autism

A new study provides one more reason to think twice about these powerful drugs, especially if you are pregnant. After extensive reports showing the negative effects of antidepressants, this new study, which looked at nearly 150,000 babies, has found a link between antidepressants taken during pregnancy and autism in young children. Children of women who took antidepressants during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy were 87% more likely to develop autism than kids born to women who didn’t take the drugs.

Tylenol During Pregnancy Linked to Autism

Another in a long list of reasons to avoid this drug. A recent study found that boys exposed to acetaminophen (Tylenol) before birth were more likely to have symptoms of autism during childhood. This isn’t the first time that scientists have reported a connection between using this drug during pregnancy and brain and behavior abnormalities in children. Other studies show that exposure to acetaminophen raised the risk of developing ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) by 40%. Another study found that women taking it increased the risk of their child having behavioral problems by 70%. Pregnant mothers aren’t the only ones who should avoid acetaminophen and other common painkillers like NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)—a class that includes drugs like Advil, Celebrex, and Aleve.

New Task Force Guidelines Call For Screening Every Adult, Pregnant Women For Depression

A new recommendation has been released by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, a government advisory group that is now recommending all adults be routinely screened for depression as part of their healthcare. The first part of the recommendation suggests that all adults be screened, but singles out pregnant women and new mothers as a target population. Allowing doctors, social workers or any other authority figure to violate rights based upon their conclusion that a person is suffering from a mental disorder is a slippery slope indeed.

Is Your Unborn Baby Part of a Vaccine Experiment?

When a woman becomes pregnant, naturally, she would want to protect her unborn child above all else. Therefore, when offered a series of vaccinations said to protect her newborn baby against disease in the first few weeks of life, she will probably accept the vaccinations without a moment’s hesitation. However, would she accept those vaccinations so readily if she knew that her unborn child was going to be used as part of a vaccine experiment being conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the vaccine manufacturers? Health Impact News decided to investigate this issue more carefully, and what we uncovered may shock and horrify you.

Aluminum is Toxic to All Life Forms: So Why is it Used in Vaccines?

Dr. Suzanne Humphries has made available to the public her lecture on neonatal immunity presented in New Zealand in May of 2014. In this lecture, Dr. Humphries deals specifically with the toxic effects of aluminum, which is a common adjuvant contained in childhood vaccines. The medical literature clearly shows that aluminum is a death factor for cells, and highly toxic. The reasons as to why aluminum has not been replaced with something less toxic or non-toxic are economical, and not medical. This is a critical lecture that anyone considering vaccines needs to watch, particularly pregnant women and parents of young children.

CDC Whistleblower: Mercury in Vaccines Given to Pregnant Women Linked to Autism

Today, the Autism Media Channel released a short video where CDC whistle-blower Dr. William Thompson states, in a phone call to Dr. Brian Hooker, that injecting mercury into pregnant women creates a "clear and present danger" to the unborn child. Thimerosal, a form of mercury used as a preservative in vaccines, was removed from most childhood vaccines a few years ago, but is still in the annual flu shot, which is recommended for pregnant women. Dr. Thompson, in the video below, insists that this mercury in vaccines causes "tics" in children, and these tics are 4 times more prevalent in kids with autism. "Tics" are defined on the CDC website as: "Tics are sudden twitches, movements, or sounds that people do repeatedly. People who have tics cannot stop their body from doing these things. For example, a person with a motor tic might keep blinking over and over again. Or, a person with a vocal tic might make a grunting sound unwillingly." Watch the short 1 minute video.

Tylenol: The Killer Drug Your Children can Buy

Is there any more doubt that acetaminophen (Tylenol) is the most dangerous over-the-counter drug ever allowed to be sold legally without a prescription? Consider the facts: Acetaminophen kills almost 500 people a year due to acute liver failure. Acetaminophen overdose is the leading cause for calls to Poison Control Centers - more than 100,000/year. Acetaminophen accounts for more than 56,000 emergency room visits, 2,600 hospitalizations. Acetaminophen poisoning causes nearly 50% of all acute liver failure in the United States. Acetaminophen is linked to fatal skin reactions. Acetaminophen causes a two-fold increased risk of blood cancer. Acetaminophen can cause an increase in autism, attention deficit with hyperactivity, and asthma when used with vaccines. And yet, any child can walk into a drug store or grocery store and buy it like candy. Alliance for Natural Health brings us the latest bad news on Tylenol: A study just published in JAMA Pediatrics finds that Tylenol (acetaminophen) taken by women during their pregnancy may raise the risk of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) and similar disorders in their children up to 40%—with the risk increasing the more acetaminophen the mother takes.

Antidepressants During Pregnancy Increase Risk of Autism

Researchers studied 966 mother-child pairs in order to examine the associations between prenatal use of serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)—e.g., Prozac, Zoloft, Lexapro, Paxil, Celexa– and the odds of autism spectrum disorders and other developmental delays. The scientists found that among boys, prenatal SSRI exposure was nearly 3-fold higher in children with autism spectrum disorder relative to children with typical development. The authors concluded, “In boys, prenatal exposure to SSRIs may increase susceptibility to autism spectrum disorder or developmental delay.”

Flu Shot for Pregnant Women? CDC Covers Up Influenza Vaccine-Related Fetal Deaths

CDC Misleads Nations Ob/Gyns -Covering-up The Most Massive Fetal Death Reports Associated With The Influenza Vaccine in the History of Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) Dr. Gary Goldman’s study on the 4,250% spike in fetal death reports during the 2009/10 H1N1 “pandemic” was originally rejected by the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology (AJOG), who is charged by the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) as complicit in a massive cover-up and manipulation of data associated with the 2009/10 flu season fetal deaths. This report is now available free to the public. Subsequently published in the Human & Experimental Toxicology Journal (HET), as a Sage choice study, the Goldman study is now listed in Pub med as a free PMC article. Despite an apparent trail of documented collusion and misconduct amongst the CDC, AJOG (Elsevier) and 9 non-profits including the March of Dimes, this alarmingly poor outcome of the 2009/10 H1N1 vaccine experiment on the fetuses of pregnant women was successfully covered up by the CDC until Goldman exposed the statistics, documenting the harm in his recent publication. Dr. Marie McCormick, chairperson of the CDC’s H1N1 Vaccine Safety Risk and Assessment Working Group (VSRAWG) testified, and submitted deceptive reports to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), contending no unusual signals nor adverse outcomes in the pregnant population during the 2009/10 public experiments on pregnant women. However, pressed by the NCOW statistics extracted from the government’s own data, Dr. Shimabukuro of the Centers of Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) corroborated the NCOW data in a public presentation (slide 20) in Atlanta, Georgia, in October of 2010. This contradiction to Dr.McCormick’s testimony evidences that the CDC indeed knew of the increasing level in fetal-loss reports, in near real time. Yet the CDC failed to immediately notify the nation’s Ob/Gyns, who, uninformed, continued to double-dose their pregnant patients with the fetal-fatal flu shots that collectively delivered up to 50 micrograms of mercury. Due to the success of this well-orchestrated cover up and the complicity of the non-profits and AJOG, pregnant women are now pressured to get 4 vaccine doses, (Flu, TDaP) and thereafter are mandated to give up to 49 vaccine doses to their surviving children in order for them to attend school.

Vaccination During Pregnancy: Is It Safe?

In decades past, women were as a general rule told to avoid toxic exposures during pregnancy, such as cigarette smoke, alcohol, household cleaning products, radiation, medications and other toxic exposures. Today, pregnant women face a set of difficult questions and choices about keeping themselves and their babies healthy, as they’re increasingly being told to get a variety of vaccines during pregnancy. In 2006, the CDC strengthened recommendations that all pregnant women, healthy or not, should get a flu shot in any trimester. As of 2011, a pertussis-containing Tdap shot is also recommended for all pregnant women. The time-honored rule of avoiding any potential toxic exposure that might interfere with the normal development of the fetus has been suspended and replaced with an assumption that vaccination during pregnancy is safe. There’s absolutely NO sound science backing the assumption that vaccination during pregnancy is safe. On the contrary, there is a lack of available science and testing in this area.
