There is a compelling argument that the occurrence of regressive autism is attributable to genetic and chromosomal abnormalities, arising from the overuse of vaccines, which subsequently affects the stability and function of the autonomic nervous system…Heavy Metals and Mercury in particular, affects the function of the Central Nervous System.

Autism: a novel form of mercury poisoning. Medical Hypothesis, 2001
A review of medical literature and US government data suggests that: (i) many cases of idiopathic autism are induced by early mercury exposure from thimerosal; (ii) this type of autism represents an unrecognized mercurial syndrome; and (iii) genetic and non-genetic factors establish a predisposition whereby thimerosal’s adverse effects occur only in some children.

Hypothesis: conjugate vaccines may predispose children to autism spectrum disorders. Medical Hypothesis, 2011
Conjugate vaccines fundamentally change the manner in which the immune systems of infants and young children function by deviating their immune responses.
The potential importance of steroids in the treatment of autistic spectrum disorders and other disorders involving mercury toxicity. Medical Hypothesis, 2005

Cultured lymphocytes from autistic children and non-autistic siblings up-regulate heat shock protein RNA in response to thimerosal challenge. Neurotoxicology, 2006
The differences [between autistic and non-autistic siblings] in expression profiles between those cells treated with zinc versus thimerosal were dramatic.
A dose-response relationship between organic mercury exposure from thimerosal-containing vaccines and neurodevelopmental disorders. International Journal Of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2014
The cumulative total dose of Hg exposure from thimerosal-containing hepatitis B vaccine (T-HBV) administered within the first six months of life was calculated. [Significant links were found with: specific developmental delay, tic disorder and hyperkinetic syndrome of childhood]. Cases were significantly more likely than controls to receive increased organic-Hg exposure.
Do aluminum vaccine adjuvants contribute to the rising prevalence of autism? Journal of inorganic biochemistry, 2011
Results show that children from countries with the highest ASD prevalence appear to have the highest exposure to Aluminium from vaccines.
Transcriptomic analyses of neurotoxic effects in mouse brain after intermittent neonatal administration of thimerosal. Toxicology Sciences: An official journal of the society of toxicology, 2014
Results indicate that higher dose of neonatal thimerosal-mercury is capable of inducing long-lasting substantial dysregulation of neurodevelopment, synaptic function, and endocrine system, which could be the causal involvements of autistic-like behavior in mice.
Neurological adverse events associated with vaccination. Current Opinion in Neurology, 2012
The present review summarizes data on neurologic complications following vaccination, and provides evidence that indicates whether they were directly associated with the vaccines. These complications include autism (measles vaccine), multiple sclerosis (hepatitis B vaccine), meningoencephalitis (Japanese encephalitis vaccine), Guillain-Barré syndrome and giant cell arteritis (influenza vaccine), and reactions after exposure to animal rabies vaccine. Seizures and hypotonic/hyporesponsive episodes following pertussis vaccination and potential risks associated with varicella vaccination, as well as vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis following oral poliovirus vaccination, are also described.

Empirical Data Confirm Autism Symptoms Related to Aluminum and Acetaminophen Exposure
Autism is a condition characterized by impaired cognitive and social skills, associated with compromised immune function. The incidence is alarmingly on the rise, and environmental factors are increasingly suspected to play a role. This paper investigates word frequency patterns in the U.S. CDC Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) database. Our results provide strong evidence supporting a link between autism and the aluminum in vaccines.
