A new study has recently been published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry (Vol 177), demonstrating that:
Subcutaneous injections of aluminum at vaccine adjuvant levels activate innate immune genes in mouse brain that are homologous with biomarkers of autism
In short, the study finds that common aluminum adjuvants in vaccines traveled from the injection location in mice and crossed the blood-brain barrier.
This resulted in symptoms synonymous with those of Autism Spectrum Disorder in the human species. Also remarkable, is that the rate of these symptoms were markedly higher in the male mouse sample population, appearing to mirror patterns of Autism prevalence in humans, where prevalence is much higher in males:
When it comes to developmental disorders of the brain, men and women are not created equal. Decades of research have shown that males are at far greater risk for neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) than females. Boys, on average, are five times more likely to have autism than girls .
Common objections and answers thereto.
One acquaintance of mine online suggested that because the injections in the study were performed subcutaneously, and not in an intermuscular fashion, that the data is therefore irrelevant.
- Some vaccines administered subcutaneously contain aluminum adjuvants:
- JEV (China)
(EDIT: In the first edition of this post, I stated that the DTAP vaccine is administered subcutaneously. This was false. It is an intermuscularly injected vaccine.)
- The study references a secondary, similar study, where direct intermuscular injection of aluminum adjuvants was performed on rabbits, and the adjuvant still left the injection site in potentially harmful amounts.

Please read the study for yourself. As always, I am amused and suprised by the hot contestations of the "pro-science" crowd when data emerges which challenges their specific socio-political narrative.
One wouldn't think saying "more research is warranted" would cause such a hubbub, but alas, it does.
Thank you for reading.
EDIT: A very interesting counterpoint post has been written critiquing this study and focusing on what could be some serious flaws in the methodology. I am remaining neutral and open, and researching further, but I think presenting counterpoint is important to the discussion. Here is the post by @irime:
