American Health Concerns that many are unaware of

America (and prosperous European countries like UK and France), being 1st world countries, are sometimes concerned about “First World Problems” that most other countries do not have time/energy/money to care about.

Two health concerns that are very popular in America, but virtually unknown in most Southeast Asian countries are:

Vaccines Health Concerns

Although the main research linking MMR Vaccines to Autism has been retracted, many Americans, including President Donald Trump, have expressed their concern about vaccines. There are many anecdotal stories from parents whose children are doing well developmentally, until the day they took the vaccine where strange effects happened, including autistic regression.

Read here about a Nature article on “The real issues in vaccine safety”. By the way, Nature is the top science journal in the world, it is considered a tremendous achievement for any professor to publish in Nature.

The main author behind the MMR-Autism link, Andrew Wakefield, has published his version of the story in his book called “Callous Disregard”. He has been called a fraud, but yet many people do believe in his theory. Notably, in his retracted paper Wakefield did not claim that vaccines cause autism, he just investigated the link and basically said that more research needs to be done. His punishment was very severe (lost his UK doctor’s licence; he spent a decade earning his Gastroenterologist specialist degree), and some people believe it to be a conspiracy theory backed by the billion-dollar vaccine pharmaceutical giants.

“We have identified a chronic enterocolitis in children that may be related to neuropsychiatric dysfunction. In most cases, onset of symptoms was after measles, mumps, and rubella immunisation. Further investigations are needed to examine this syndrome and its possible relation to this vaccine.” (Andrew Wakefield’s paper’s final conclusion.)

Callous Disregard: Autism and Vaccines–The Truth Behind a Tragedy

Basically, vaccinations rely on a phenomenon called “herd immunity”, it requires at least 90-95% of the population to be vaccinated in order for it to be successful. Hence, many people dropping out of the vaccinations can cause the “herd immunity” to be lost, which may be dangerous. On the other hand, vaccines contain dangerous ingredients like preservatives and viruses, and even used to contain a mercury compound called thimerosal, which no doubt is something unnatural that you wouldn’t want to put in your body. Due to the vaccine controversy, thimerosal has now been discontinued in most vaccines.


The Gluten Connection: How Gluten Sensitivity May Be Sabotaging Your Health–And What You Can Do to Take Control Now

In Southeast Asia, I would say that more than 90% of people do not know what gluten is (though they eat it everyday). In Laymen’s terms, it is a type of protein that is found in wheat, barley, rye, etc. In America, many people have been tested to have gluten sensitivity, causing digestive problems such as Crohn’s disease or Celiac disease. Again, similar to vaccines, most people have no problem at all eating gluten, but in a selected minority of the population, it can cause severe problems.

The digestive system is said to be a “second brain”, (see The Strange Location of Your Second Brain). It contains a lot of neurotransmitters. Hence, many scientists have started to notice the gut-brain connection. Read this Harvard article that links anxiety and depression to digestive (gut) problems. Hence, for people with gluten sensitivity or allergy, gluten can be the starting trigger for their other problems like depression/anxiety. It has also been linked to ADHD and even schizophrenia.

Check out this book (1,001 positive reviews) on the connection between the gut (digestive system) and the brain:

  1. There are many types of brain injury caused by vaccines. Autism is just one of them, glyphosate which is found to be high in much of our food sources also causes and leaky gut. By getting people to focus on autism they are diverting peoples attention from the other forms of brain damage vaccines cause which occurs much more often. GMOs in our food and the glyphosate and other chemicals used on them cause leaky gut, so does antibiotics. This also can lead to brain injury similar to what vaccines would cause. It is the encephalopathy that is occuring, autism is just one form of brain injury. Most not not gluten intolerant but are glyphosate intolerant. I did a blog post on genetically modified foods. They are also the reason so many are getting tick born illness because they are causing immune dysfunction.

      1. Your welcome, I was surprised you permitted my comment. Here in the U.S. we are heavily censored and many will not permit these types of comments. It is nice to see people in other areas are not as censored as we are. It is why many of us are starting blogs to overcome the censoring.

      2. Sure. My belief is that the truth should be thoroughly investigated through scientific tests, rather than silencing or censoring all critics and pretending that vaccines are 100% good. Even if vaccines are 99% good, tests should be conducted on how to reduce the 1% bad points of vaccines which can potentially affect millions of people.


  2. I have MS, which I can thoughtfully trace to a vaccine that was linked to MS. My sons’ lives were both pretty much destroyed. My family is destroyed. I mourn it. A good number of people have mitochondrial DNA that is not conducive to vaccination. I suggest you do your own research, as I did, but go outside usual sources. Yes–we do not get other viewpoints at all here in the US. We are heavily censored and there is some evidence the Internet is next.

    Before I followed this story, I was pro-pro vaccine. I was shocked at what I learned, and have some background in biology, so I understand it. The next person that comes at me with a needle, I’ll, I’ll…

      1. They’ll never do those studies. The vaccine industry is expected to be worth 62 bil by 2020. That is their concern. I suspect they really don’t care if they wipe whole families out. Autism will be at 1 in 2 births by 2032–80% boys, and forced vaccination is on its way as evidenced by the push in Argentina.
