Vaccines Damage Developing Brains

By Russell Blaylock, M.D.   |   Thursday, 02 Jan 2014 09:06 AM

During the first two years of life, a child’s brain undergoes extensive development, especially of pathways used in higher functions such as thinking, learning, attention, memory, social control, and language. While 80 percent of brain growth is complete by age 4, the frontal lobes continue to develop until around age 26.
This explains why mental illness peaks during adolescence. Studies also show that serious mental disorders begin very early in life, even during infancy or in the womb. It also explains why adolescents take risks and often exercise poor judgment — those parts of the brain are still poorly developed.
I am convinced that the vaccine schedule interferes with this development. The results are antisocial behaviors, poor judgment, and learning difficulties. To learn more about the dangers of vaccines, read my special report "Vaccines and Brain Injuries — Are You At Risk?"
But vaccines are not acting alone. The toxic environment, stress, injuries, poor diets, and natural infections also contribute to this problem. Take a child who is not breast-fed and is also vitamin D3 deficient, and as a result has poor immune development and function.
A weak immune system means that the child will not only have more infections, but the infections will be more devastating and prolonged.
Like the vaccines, this will prime the brain’s microglia and impair brain development. This translates into poor attention span, behavioral problems, and impulsiveness.
