Dr. Vojdani appeared before the US Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs on November 16, 1993 to provide testimony relative to immunological studies on blood samples of Persian Gulf War veterans and controls. His findings indicated that some of the veterans who had been exposed to chemical agents while serving in that war had neuroimmunological disorders. This testimony was instrumental in winning the passage of a law, initiated by Chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, Senator J. D. Rockefeller on November 22, 1993 that would provide free medical care to Persian Gulf War veterans.

Autism pt 1- Rates
Autism & Vaccines, One Vaccine During Pregnancy Triples Neurologic Disorders in Infants
“Let me give you example that again in scientific literature many articles are published about if a pregnant mother is exposed to just one viral antigen during pregnancy the probability of having a child with autism and schizophrenia and some other neurologic disorder is threefold higher.
So, meaning maternal exposure to viral antigen changes completely the immune system of the fetus when the fetus is born, then the immune system is imbalanced and therefore when we are giving at that level the vaccines to that child which is already having prior exposure to viruses in the womb the probability of having abnormal immune function, abnormal brain function resulting in autism and other neurologic disorders is much higher in that subgroup of children, and classically we can use that as an example that if again prior exposure to viruses and then mercury plus viral antigens in the vaccines are introduced to those individuals then the probability of an autoimmune disorder is much higher in this subgroup of children.”
Autism & Vaccines pt 1, Exponential Growth & Environmental Changes
“My opinion about this that is really the heart of the matter is 1 in 10,000 or then 1 in 1000 and now is 1 to 150, especially in California. What happened, our genes have changed? No, we are the same genetic make up, right, the genes do not change overnight. So, something is in our environment, so I would like to make this as a general discussion, not to blame it only on mercury in vaccines, something in our environment has changed in the past, 20, 30, 40, 50 years and is becoming worse and worse.
I general, I call that xenobiotics or toxic chemicals in our environment. So, let us take a mother who would like to become pregnant. She is consuming which is contaminated with chemicals, drinking water with hundreds and thousands of chemicals in the water, added to that the stress of you know the modern lifestyle, probably she is working or handling children at home and all of the stress plus environmental factors changing the immune system. Now, the mother is becoming pregnant, during pregnancy she is consuming the same food, the same water, and breathing the same air and then she is getting small you know just you know simple flu or cold during the winter or even you know during any season, during that pregnancy period. Now, that by itself is enough to change the immune system of the fetus
where the cytokines which are produced which are messengers between immune system communicating with the brain now changing. Instead of producing factor I, II, III and IV, now they are producing factor V and VI which they did not produce before. By doing so, the whole communication between the immune system and nervous system is broken.
Now, the child is born. Due to all those environmental factors which we mentioned having very disturbed or dysfunctional immune system or dysregulated immune system, so, now this child on the first day is going to get hepatitis B virus and then three months later getting three or four different viral antigens, the results of that started when the fetus was in the womb, now is going to be further, further destruction of the immune system causing abnormal development of the brain which we detect at an age almost two or three representing a child with autism or other neurologic disorders.
So, that is really my opinion. We cannot blame it only on vaccines. Something is in our environment in general plus infectious agents, if the mother had it, and then vaccinations, in the vaccines we have viral antigens, we have the mercury which right now some can argue with that, so well they removed it now, can we blame it on mercury alone? My answer is no, but we have also aluminum and other heavy metals as adjuvant in the vaccines. So, combination of whatever we have in the vaccine as a preservative plus the adjuvants in the vaccines plus the viral antigens plus whatever happened before birth together can contribute to development of autism and that has what has changed in the past 10, 20, 30 years, the environmental factors, especially toxic chemicals in our environment are major contributing factors to autism, not only mercury in the vaccines.
Autism & Vaccines pt 2, Diagnosis hasn’t changed, rates exploded. Toxic Chemicals
“my response to that, please you show me the evidence, I don’t need to show you anything. You show me the evidence what is the reason behind they are detecting 1 in 150 children in California developing autism in comparison to 10 years ago was 1 in 1000. You give me the explanation. I don’t need to you know. For me, it is very difficult to prove that the environmental factors are the major reason for development of autism, you argue with that?
You explain it. What is behind these facts that 1 in out of 150 children now are developing autism versus 10 years ago 1 in 1000.
Some of you may say because our diagnostic methodologies have improved by neuropsychiatrists and other involved or pediatricians, but I have spoken to many neuropsychiatrists and asked them whether their methodology has changed,
the answer is no; 10 years ago and now neuropsychiatry has not changed at all and they use the same methods for diagnosis of autism.
– So, this idea that is proposed that we have broadened the spectrum of accepting the cases as autism and the factor that people are saying before it was less of a known disease so there was less diagnosis, this isn’t factual?
If that is the case, then how come we are developing 1 in 150 in California, it other states 1 in 500. The methodology has changed if it has changed all over the country, so how come in some states we have more autism than other states. So, that is leading us to something that our environment is contributing to that.
And what is the major factor between California and the other states. Is it the pollution, is it the mandated schedule of vaccines, what is it?
I think, no, I think the mandated schedule of vaccines is almost the same all over the country. It is recommended by Medical College of Pediatrics I believe, but we know that the environmental factors in different states are different. For example, we know certain cities around Boston, that they have 10 times more autoimmune disease and due to some environmental factors which were discovered that the land which they build the houses on top of them were land filled, so we know toxic chemicals in the environment playing very important role in development of autoimmunity and autism cannot be excluded from that.”
Autism pt 2 – Mechanisms
Autism & Vaccine Mechanisms, Vojdani Explained in 2 Journal Articles
“Okay. Now, if you, I would like you to take a copy of my articles because really from the mechanism of point of view I have explained it very clearly in two different journals, one of them is clinical diagnostic laboratory immunology and the other one is international journal of immunopharmacology and toxicology, immunopathology and pharmacology.
In these two articles we dealt with infectious agents and xenobiotic, induction of autoimmunity in children with autism and in the mechanism of action, this is the way I am explaining that, that
exposure to mercury, mercury can bind to human tissue and induce specific anti-tissue antibodies and also some nonspecific immune complexes, anti-nuclear antibodies and so forth
but also many viral antigens if you look at their structure, they have similar structure to human tissue including myelin basic protein and myelin oligodendrocytes, glycoproteins, and other neuronal cell antigens.
So, let us say we are exposed to, in this case, a vaccine or the vaccine is given to a child and the child’s mucosal immune system is reacting to that antigen.
In results of that, many cytokines in the mucosal area are changing and the tight junctions get opened, the epithelial cells tight junctions get opened and now those antigens plus mercury and some other bacterial antigens and some dietary proteins such as milk and casein and gliadin from milk, gliadin from wheat and casein from milk, and other dietary proteins can enter in circulation,
so now because that the tight junctions are open, almost every single molecule from the gut can enter in circulation and now immune system is being bombarded by the bacterial antigen, viral antigens, mercury and dietary protein.
By responding to that, now we make from one hand antibodies against mercury and mercury binding proteins, antibodies against measles antigens and mumps and rubella antigens.
We make antibodies against casein from milk and antibodies against gliadin from wheat. Furthermore, we make cells in our system recognizing those antigens called CD4 or helper cells, so the whole cellular and humeral immune system is in action making antibodies or memory lymphocytes and those memory lymphocytes stay in the body forever and those antibodies are also in the blood.
Now, for some reason which we don’t know at this level that if a child is exposed to further levels of viral antigens, the viral antigens and toxic chemicals such as mercury can open the blood brain barriers. The blood brain barriers are a mechanism which are protecting us from entry of toxins from the circulation to the brain area. So, if we are exposed to mercury or viral antigens, now the blood barriers get opened, the antibodies which were in circulation reacting to mercury or reacting to measles virus, now they are in the brain areas and due to antigenic similarity between measles, mums and rubella with human brain cells, those antibodies are going to attack the brain cells. The memory lymphocytes reacting to viral antigens in the blood, now they are in the brain area and due to similarity between these viral antigens with brain cells like __41:07___ cells.
These cells are going just you know to take a bite from the myelin and destroying the brain cells and the brain cells, myelin, and other antigens now are released into circulation, further immune response against them resulting in autoimmunity and that is exactly what we are finding in children with autism that they have almost similar autoimmune reaction as patients with autoimmune disease.
In fact, when you look at those two articles we look at certain markers of autoimmunity with patients with frank autoimmune disease, we found children with autism had similar abnormalities as patient with autoimmune disease, so therefore by looking at this mechanism of action which autoimmune reaction induced by viral antigens plus xenobiotics, plus dietary proteins everything is in place to explain why we detect autoimmune reactions or autoimmune disease in children with autism.”
Mercury VS Leaky Gut VS Milk Induced Autoimmunity
Vaccines, Different Causes Claimed for Autism? MMR VS Mercury
“– What is the correlation in causes of autism between MMR and mercury based vaccines?
I have published about four or five different articles in scientific journals about the causes of autism indirectly, not directly, and in my presentations in some of those articles also I made very small cartoon which explains exactly that,
that autism is a neuroimmune disorder induced by infectious agents plus xenobiotics plus dietary proteins or peptides.
Starts in the gut and manifests itself in the brain.
So, this is a disease induced by infectious agents plus xenobiotics such as heavy metals plus some dietary peptides. The immune reaction to it starts in the mucosal immune system or in the gut and the results shows itself in the brain
in the form of many, many abnormalities which we are detecting also in the laboratory.
So, again combination of infectious agents plus xenobiotics,
so what Dr. Wakefield is saying is correct, but the others also are correct as well. ”
How Can an Autoimmune Disease be Caused by Vaccinations? Mercury Induced Autoimmunity
“Okay, if you review the literature in the scientific journal including journal of immunology which I have it right here, I get two of these every month. Look at the thickness, okay, and in every of these journals at least there are two or three articles published that are dealing with mercury induced autoimmunity or infectious agents induced autoimmunity. So, we know the mechanism behind of induction of autoimmunity is either toxic chemicals or infectious agents and in particular when we deal with toxic chemicals, mercury, and this is the issue from March 2005 and I am going to read something from here for you. So, what they tell us, first of all, the title of this article is ICOS-B7 homologous protein interaction are necessary for mercury induced autoimmunity.
Again, I am emphasizing mercury induced autoimmunity,
so if the title of that article is this so obviously mercury has been used in animal model to induce autoimmune disease and exactly in here they are telling us that if we inject mice or rats with subtoxic levels, meaning low concentrations of mercury, after few weeks the animal will develop autoimmunity exhibited by laboratory abnormalities such as anti-nuclear antibodies, rheumatoid factor, and immune complexes and that is exactly what we are finding to be elevated in children with autism, anti-nuclear antibodies, rheumatoid factor and immune complexes.
So, the evidence is there that mercury and other metals can induce autoimmunity.
So that was from 2005. So, let me also go back to earlier publication in a journal called Immunology Today, and that was from 1998 and in this article again well look at the title, the cover, the title or the cover they are telling us Drug Trafficking, Adverse Immune Response to Xenobiotics, a compound, and what they show us in this article
and again here the title, adverse immune reaction to xenobiotics and the next page is,
they are showing us how metals, right here, how metals can bind to human tissue protein and induce autoimmune reaction. So, this has been in literature for more than 50 years.
Those who are telling us that metals cannot induce autoimmunity, they never had the opportunity or they never took their time and read some of these articles which I am quoting.”
Autism, Blood Tests Show Mercury Exposure, Gluten & Milk Intolerance
“one of the diseases which I believe in addition to genes being responsible for its development, environmental factor playing a significant role in it is autism or other autism related disorders, and
I had the opportunity to work with many, many doctors who look at children with autism and we performed blood tests on them from the immunological point of view, from diet and so forth, and from the point of view of exposure to toxic chemicals including mercury. In one third of these individuals which we have tested probably in more than a thousand that we found that diet playing the significant role. If you put them on wheat free diet and casein free diet, doctors see significant improvement in their clinical condition as well as reduction in their levels of antibodies we are detecting in the laboratory.
Also, the same one third we find that those individuals they make antibodies against mercury, meaning they have been exposed to mercury or other metals,
they have antibodies against anti-nuclear antibodies which is marker of all immunity, they have high levels of immune complexes and their metallothionein which is an enzyme taking care of mercury or other metals or detoxifying metals from our system, those enzymes in one third are not working, so therefore we see a lot of laboratory abnormalities in children with autism probably induced either by infectious agents or by heavy metals.”
Is there a Safe Limit for Mercury & Mercury Types (mercury chloride, Thimerosal, ethyl mercury or methyl mercury)
“First of all we have to accept the fact that mercury regardless in what form, whether mercury chloride, ethyl mercury or methyl mercury, all of them are toxic and I would like to emphasize clearly that there is no safe limit to a toxic material. So, therefore they cannot tell us what level of mercury is safe for human consumption or injection.
Then, the other response I have to this is
why do we put thimerosal or ethyl mercury in the vaccines? The answer to that is as a preservative. What is it doing as a preservative, to prevent bacterial growth and viral growth in the material, so if it is used as a preservative to kill bacteria and viruses, obviously it is toxic to human cells, and again, therefore there is no safe limit to any type of mercury.”
How Much Mercury is in Vaccines Pt1? Are Hair Analyses Valid?
“absolutely not correct to say that mercury in the vaccines or mercury level in the vaccines is similar to mercury in the sea water. I am not the advocate saying that we don’t have mercury in the sea water, but definitely not at the level we are putting in the vaccines.
In the vaccines, we have microgram levels, so therefore every injection probably is about, I don’t know, 5 mcg or so and a child by age 1 or so is getting about 80 mcg of mercury which is a lot and again earlier I said that subtoxic levels of mercury can induce autoimmunity.
Now, in relation to measuring it in the hair and they could not find it in the hair of children with autism, that is exactly what I am claiming, that when mercury is entered into our system it is bind to our proteins, that is exactly that article in Immunology Today is telling us, that mercury can bind covalently each molecule to four different amino acids and then the body induces autoantibody reaction and that is the mechanism of autoimmunity and that is exactly the reason why they did not find it in the hair, because in those individuals bind to the tissue should not be released into the hair, but those individuals who get exposed to mercury but they have a good secretory component in their system, meaning they have good enzymes, can excrete the mercury then you can find that in the hair, but unfortunately in one third of children with autism when mercury enters into their system, bind to the tissue and induce autoimmune reaction.
So, therefore we should not find it in the hair.”
How Much Mercury is in Vaccines Pt2 ? Fuzzy Math
“I absolutely disagree with that author because you cannot take a molecule and say because certain molecule has this type of structure 90% of that is not mercury or mercury is only part of that, we are talking about ethyl mercury or merthiolate altogether as a molecule which has the capacity to bind to human tissue and then the whole thing becomes __17:42___ and then the body reacts against the complex, so we cannot separate the mercury from other components of the structure. That is misleading.”
Vaccines, Some Drs Don’t know Merthiolate is Mercury, Check Inserts
“No, no, I think that is correct. I believe, only two years ago they decided to remove Merthiolate from some vaccines, not all of them,
and depends in some offices if they have some vaccines and still the date shows that they can use it,
I think you know the doctors don’t understand the difference between Merthiolate and mercury. Okay, when they read.
And I have been to some pediatricians’ offices and asked them a question whether or not your vaccine contains mercury. They told me no.
Okay, I have three children I have been to those offices believe me, and then when I asked him to bring me the vaccine and the package insert clearly was written contains Merthiolate.
The pediatrician did not know the difference between mercury and Merthiolate so what do you expect from these individuals?
So it is responsibility of the companies which are making these vaccines and to write clearly what is in that, you know, vaccine and again pediatricians really do not know about it.
So, I don’t think that all of our vaccines right now are free of mercury including our flu vaccines.
– And for the average person could you give us bit of an explanation of the difference or the relation between mercury and Merthiolate.>
Okay, Okay, Merthiolate is ethyl mercury. That is another name for it,
like some medications there are four different names. In this case, the chemical name is ethyl mercury and as a preservative in a laboratory on the box or on the bottle is written Merthiolate and many people do not know the difference between Merthiolate or ethyl mercury which is the same.
Therefore, the public should read more about this and they know what or maybe the companies who are making the vaccines they should write ethyl mercury and should not write merthiolate as a preservative.”
Milk Induced Autoimmunity & Diabetes Connection
Milk Causes Autoimmunity Disease, Diabetes pt 1
“Now, you also ask me the question about Dr. Mercola who found that something in milk causing autoimmunity. It is very well accepted in the field of immunology that some milk peptides, their structure is very similar to islet cells, islet cell making insulin, so when we make antibodies against milk, those antibodies plus helper cells are attacking the islet cells and inducing autoimmune disease. The islet cells are destroyed due to autoimmune reaction and children or patients are ending with diabetes.
Similarly, we know that milk and wheat has similar structure with nerve cell antigens. In another article which I have to give you a copy published in the journal called nutritional neurosciences clearly I demonstrated that peptide of eight amino-acids in wheat or component of gliadin cross react with human brain cells therefore explaining the mechanism behind gluten induced autoimmune disease or a disease called gluten ataxia meaning neurologic disease or brain dysfunction or autoimmune brain dysfunction induced by a component of wheat, in this case eight amino-acids, we call it gliadin peptide.
So, therefore the mechanism of action is described in many, many articles published in scientific journals where infectious agents, xenobiotics, dietary peptides and proteins can induce autoimmunities and children with autism are not excluded from that.
– When you say xenobiotics, it is just…?
Xenobiotics is a general terminology for toxic chemicals. Any chemicals from the environment have toxic effects on the immune system, we call them xenobiotics and mercury absolutely is a xenobiotic. Ethyl mercury is a xenobiotic and therefore we should not have it in our vaccines.”
Milk Causes Autoimmunity Disease, Diabetes pt2
“Absolutely. You know, in the pancreas we have cells called islet cells of Langerhans. The islet cells, beta islet cells are responsible to produce insulin which actually is a hormone, which is responsible for conversion of glucose to either energy or to fat.
So, when we consume significant amount of milk or proteins from milk and we make antibodies against them and again I have to make it clear,
not every person consuming milk is going to make antibody against milk, only subgroup of individuals if they have leaky gut syndrome or some genetic makeup that will respond to milk proteins and make antibody against milk proteins
and since milk protein, their structure is very similar to beta islet cells, when antibodies are made against milk those antibodies goes after the islet cells and destroying the islet cells.
The analogy is very similar that if our soldiers are fighting the enemy and the enemy will wear clothes like US Army soldiers, you know it will be very difficult to recognize who is who and because of these type of similarities something mistaken happened, that is exactly what happens in the immune system. If the immune system made antibodies against milk and structure of the milk is similar to beta islet cells which are making insulin those antibodies and cells reacting to milk now are going to attack the beta islet, destroying the beta islet cells resulting in having lack of insulin and diabetes, but after many years.”
Milk Causes Autoimmunity Disease, Diabetes pt3
“and that is why we have many, many children with type 1 diabetes, it is autoimmune diabetes actually. We call that autoimmune because their body is attacking its own islet cells. Another mechanism of action is a virus called Coxsackie.
Autoimmune diabetes is type 1 diabetes, not type 2 diabetes, so type 1 diabetes in children we know that milk is one of the major factors behind it.
Secondly there is a virus called Coxsackie virus and when a person is exposed or infected with Coxsackie virus and we make antibodies against Coxsackie virus, those antibodies are going to attack the islet cells.
So, this is a very good example how dietary proteins from one hand and infectious antigens from other hand both can attack the islet cells and destroy the islet cell and induce type 1 diabetes.
So, therefore here is an example of infectious agents and another example from dietary proteins, milk can induce autoimmunity in the form of type 1 diabetes.”
Milk Causes Autoimmunity Disease, Diabetes pt4
“The genetic factor is playing extremely, extremely important role. When we consume an antigen, depends on our genes how that antigen is going to be broken into pieces and if that antigen is broken to small peptides and then bind to special molecule, in that individual, only that individual is going to make antibody against milk. So, therefore
if there was a history of type 1 diabetes in certain families I highly recommend not to consume milk, that will prevent the development of type 1 diabetes in those individuals or relatives of those individuals.
– So what about the breast-feeding and the weaning of the infant to how…..
No, in fact the breast-feeding is completely different. I am talking about cow’s milk in this case.
In fact breast-feeding is going to prevent the child from having autoimmune diabetes. In fact it is recommended to have breast-feeding at least for one year period for those individuals and not to introduce at all cow’s milk or other formulas.
– At all ever?
– For type 1 diabetes?
For type 1 diabetes prone families. Should avoid cow’s milk and what about cheese and other diary products.
Well, when we take cow’s milk, includes you know all those.
– All diary products?
– Dairy products, dairy free for life?
Yeah that is correct.
It is very safe.
– That is very interesting, and what percentage of the population, could you give us a rough estimate that actually have this problem with the antibodies against cow’s milk?
I would say one third.
– One third.
One third, but not all one third are going to develop type 1 diabetes, okay, again, because genetic make up is very important.
We measure antibodies against casein and other components of milk in our laboratories and we find one third is highly elevated. Now, again I would like to say not every individual is going to develop type 1 diabetes because of that, because there is genetic make up and many other factors are involved, whether those antibodies and cell are going to attack our own tissue. So, we cannot say that, but one third we detect the antibodies, but small percentage of those also develop type 1 diabetes due to consumption of milk and other dietary proteins.
– And are there other factors that precipitate in this subgroup since it is one third is highly disposed, predisposed, what singles out these small percentages, another interaction, is there another causal factor and environmental factor, or is it just bad luck with the genetic make up?
Well, again I always make the analogy of genetic make up. It is like a loaded gun. You have that loaded gun in a closet for 15 years, for 20 years, for 5 years, for 10 years, nothing happened. You need the trigger from the environment. Someone should go to the closet take out the gun and pull the trigger. Only in that situation it becomes dangerous to kill someone and the same thing in the case of yes you have genetic make up, but you need something from the environment such as casein from the milk and the antigen from coxsackie virus to come in play together and to destroy the islet cells in order to induce autoimmune disease. I think that is a very good example. So, therefore interaction between genes with many environmental factors.
There are many other environmental factors I don’t know about them, mercury exposure could be one of them, so all of that playing a role together with the gene in order to induce autoimmune disease.”
Autism pt 3 – Treatment
Autism, Treatment pt1, Can we Remove Mercury From the System?
“You mean to do chelation or remove mercury from the system?
– That is right.
Yeah, I believe in some population of children with autism mercury tightly, very tightly based on this mechanism of action binds to tissue proteins. We should be very, very careful that by doing chelation and trying to remove the mercury from the tissue not to harm these children further, because some of these agents used for chelation also have some side effects. We have to be very careful about it. Now, I know that chelation is very helpful in removing calcium and things like that from the arteries for prevention of cardiovascular disease or improving the clinical conditions of a patient with cardiovascular disease. In children with autism, I have seen many cases, when they did measure levels of mercury before chelation and after chelation. After chelation, levels went high as ten fold or sometimes higher, that shows that indeed mercury was in the tissue, by doing chelation removed it from the tissue and then they detected in the blood or urine and so forth. That by itself shows that the success of chelation therapy if it is done correctly.
– So, which are the dangerous treatments for….?
I am not the expert in the field, but again you know, some of them use MPS, some of them use MSA, and you should see which of them are more safe and only to use the one which are safe, but definitely by removing them, the mercury, from the tissues and releasing into the blood and then from that to urine, that will be the best way to prevent autoimmunity or autoimmune reaction against the metal, the tissue as a complex to prevent immune reaction against that and probably to reduce the level of autoimmune reaction in children with autism.
– Because once the mercury is released from the tissue, the attack of the body against that compound will cease?A:
Exactly, but it take sometimes six months, sometimes a year, and sometimes longer.
– Of continued treatment or before the effect?
Of continued treatment and then before the effect is going to be in place.”
Autism Treatment pt2, supplements, 40% Improvement w Gluten & Milk Free Diet
“I believe that the body can rebuild itself, especially in children and it is not like patients who are having multiple sclerosis and significant damage is done to the brain cells which is very difficult to repair even in patient with MS I have seen some of them, they, you know if you do MRI it is completely abnormal, one year later MRI is completely normal.
So, yes there are some remedies such as lipoic acid, glutathione, N-acetyl cysteine, lipoic acid I mentioned, Omega-3 fish oil, and others will be extremely helpful in repairing the brain function.
– But as of today, have we seen total recoveries or we are not there yet?
I think right now I don’t have the evidence. I don’t think we have totally 100% recoveries, but the DAN conference, Defeat Autism Now, I was witnessing at least 20 or 30 different children who were labeled 100% autistic and pediatrician, neuropsychiatrist everybody said there is no way these children will improve. When they went to the doctors who believe by removing, by changing their diet, by doing biofeedback, and many other remedies they brought these children as evidence who completely became normal children. They go to high school today. So, that was the best evidence to show that indeed we should not give up the hope. There is a lot we can do to reverse the autoimmune reaction in children with autism,
and the DAN conference and bringing these children to show them to the public and each child was telling their own story, what they were 8 or 10 years before and where they are right now, which high school they are going, what is their goal. They were telling us that they want to be physician, some of them were telling us they want to be movie star, and so you know…
– And these children had been nonresponsive? They were completely autistic?
They were completely autistic and they were, you know, all those mainstream physicians they told the parents there is no hope and just accept your child is autistic and there is nothing you can do about it.
– And do you have any idea of these 20-30 children, what kind of percentage of success, how many of them were treated that 20 or 30 got better, do you have any idea?
Well, I think the best is to go to DAN or ARI which is Autism Research Institute. They have the best information. I don’t think so that they will claim that every child with autism will reverse, but they will tell you that there is a hope and some of them significantly improved.
I have spoken to many parents when they do laboratory testing and we have so many abnormalities. By simply putting them on milk free diet and gluten free diet, they tell me about 40% improvement, at least by expressing themselves by you know using sentences, verbally they improve significantly and also from other functional aspects. That is what I have heard from the parents, many of them.”
Catch up Cocktails vs Immune Response Limits, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) & SBS (Shaken Baby Syndrome)
Vaccines, Delaying, Catch up Cocktails vs Immune Response Limits, Toxic Choc
“a lot of parents are saying that they find the autism of their child or this particular disease condition of their child has been caused because of this catch up situation.
If a child hasn’t had his vaccines at any age they seem to just administer the total cocktail of all the missing vaccines in one dose and apparently there has been really, really heavy adverse reactions almost immediately after these high-level administrations
and then afterwards the parents have no recourse, the doctors are basically trained to deny any possible correlation between vaccines and any incidental reactions. Is there any real studies or any anything guaranteeing our security that this is safe,
– Doesn’t it seem kind of scary?
Absolutely that is scary, the word you used scary because I am an immunologist and very practical immunologist. If you take a rabbit and inject one antigen, the rabbit was going to make lets say 10 units of antibodies, if you inject antigen 1 and 2, it is going to make 12 units of antibodies, six of them antigen 1 and six of them antigen 2.
Now, if you inject antigen number 3, one, two, and three, the rabbit is going to make the same 12 units, now four units will be for antigen 1, four units will be for antigen 2, and four units will be for antigen 3, because there is a limit.
The rabbit cannot make thousands of antibodies simultaneously at a peak level. So, therefore by mixing few viral antigens together in order to compensate for all those vaccinations which were missed before absolutely is wrong because they are not going to get the same levels of antibodies if they were injected separately.
So, that is why I am so much in favor of separating the viral antigens and inject them one at a time, even the time period between one vaccine to another will be four weeks is okay with me.
We inject one antigen you get so many unit of antibodies, you inject the second one and again you get very high levels of antibodies against second one and continue with the third one until you finish them.
That is the best way to do immunization in order to get the highest level of protection possible and it is wrong to mix all of those together and inject them at once because you are not going to get almost any immunization against any of those antigens if you mix them together.
– And, so there we have covered the viral factor, the multiple viral factors, but what about the sheer concentration of all the preservatives and all the toxins that are in these vaccines in such a huge administration.
That is again, from that point of view also is wrong. So, what we do in here that we are taking multiple doses of viral antigens plus multiple amount of adjuvant plus multiple amount of mercury or merthiolate and inject them at once and I believe that overloading the immune system with all those chemicals plus adjuvant plus the viral antigens can induce significant autoimmune reaction or immune deficiency in that individual.”
Virus Weaken Immunity
Vaccines, Viruses weakens Immunity, Bacteria Become More Dangerous
“Well I don’t have information exactly about that, but I know from this type of journals if for example take just one viral antigen injected to a group of mice and then give them the bacteria which, you know, such as E. coli or staphylococcus or any other bacteria, then the group which received the viral antigen will die much faster due to injection of the bacteria than the other group which were injected only with bacteria but not with the viral antigen. So, therefore the viral antigens have the capacity to suppress the immune system and then when we inject them with bacteria, the bacterial infection can grow significantly and destroying the immune system and finally the animal dies faster.
So, therefore there are thousands and thousands articles and literature that viral antigens have immune suppressive effect and these experiments were done with viruses one at a time and when you inject three different viral antigens simultaneously definitely that will be devastating to the immune system.”

“I go one step even further down that we know that the immune system is in the process of maturation and that is why nature gave us passive immunity.
Why did nature give us passive immunity? Another meaning, the antibody from the mother, the IgG are transmitted to the fetus. When the fetus is born, for six months, it is protected against viruses and bacteria and everything. So, when the child is born and we are getting exposed to environmental factors, to build the immune system, to build the immune system and then I believe at least it takes about one year in order the immune system to build itself and to become mature.”
Vaccines, Safe Age Depends on Countries/Hygiene, 1 to 2 years
“Children in Africa and Middle East and South America, their immune system is much stronger because prior exposure to many, many bacterial antigens.
In America and Europe, and again because we are so much hygiene oriented, we try to keep them in a clean environment, their body is not exposed to bacterial and viral antigens in the environment. Therefore the immune system is not mature enough and therefore my argument is that if our children’s immune system is not developed very well in first six months or a year, we should not give them immunization right away. We should wait until their immune system is completely mature and then give them the viral antigens in the form of vaccines in order to hopefully to be able to handle that level.
– And at what age does a child really reach maturity level for immunity.
I believe about 1 year to two, and that is based on some of the immune functions we are doing in our laboratory.”
Vaccines, Need to be Given so Early? Pt1 Which Work?
“I think the MMR are protecting against diseases. Hepatitis B is given very early, very, very early I don’t know why they are so much in rush. They can give it at one year, two year, three year just before kindergarten when they get exposed, children get exposed to so many other children.
So, therefore I am first of all against giving hepatitis B at first day and we should postpone that to a year or two.
In relation to MMR, definitely I believe it does protect sub population of children against many diseases, but the other sub population which is a small percentage are suffering from the current schedule and therefore I believe we should separate the viral antigens and give them one at a time at a later age another three months.”
Vaccines , Need to be Given so Early? Pt2, Japan 0 Deaths for 10 years, Replace 70 year old Preparations with Safer ones
“ – I read a study that in Japan between 1975 and 1985 they didn’t have one single occurrence of sudden infant death syndrome and they attributed to the fact that the vaccine schedule for children was pushed back to two years of age. No vaccines were administered until two years of age. Do you have information about it or comment on that. Is there any reason why we can’t just do that kind of experiment and try putting off the vaccinations for children? What kind of danger is there to the population if we would hold off on these vaccines?
Yeah, that information by itself is very valuable and speaking for itself, and I don’t understand why in America we are so resistant to change. This procedure of viral vaccine or bacterial vaccine preparations were developed almost 70 year ago.
Now we are at 2005, we have many advancement in many, many other fields, computer science and so forth but you know in the field of vaccine preparation unfortunately we are sticking to the methodology of 70 to 80 years ago,
so we should change and I don’t understand why medical community is so much resistant for changes. I read many, many articles that there are now very safe adjuvants. Adjuvants meaning you know you add some kind of material to enhance the antigenic capacity of the vaccine, That are plant based.
Why should we not change our vaccine preparation and add to them adjuvants which are plant based for example and why we should not eliminate completely the mercury which we know is very toxic from the vaccines, and again I don’t understand why we have so much resistance and we should just be open minded and say if this is a toxic material, we should remove it and have safe vaccines to replace the existing ones.”
Delaying Vaccines, Danger of Epidemics? Hygiene Hypothesis
“I think we should separate between developed countries versus developing countries. That is you know analogy or something of a expression that is used for countries like America and Europe versus Africa and Middle East or South America. I am sure you know that there are many diseases in the Western world that we do not have them or in developed versus developing countries, and that is all when we examine goes back to hygiene hypothesis.
The hygiene hypothesis is a new chapter in immunology is telling us that if a child after birth is exposed to many bacterial antigens in the environment, the immune system is going to be developed in such a way that will not have allergies and asthma, and if those kids like in America and Europe, they are not exposed to environmental bacteria and antigens and so forth, their immune system is going to be developed in such a way they are going to have more allergy and asthma and that is a clear-cut evidence that we know that in Africa and South America and Middle East children have less asthma, less allergy, but in America and Europe we have more allergy and asthma due to development of the immune system.
In America, we keep the children more probably clean and we are more hygiene oriented. We do not let their immune system to be developed in such a way naturally to protect themselves and therefore they develop allergy and asthma. So, back to the vaccines,
nothing is going to happen if we postpone 3 to 6 months or a year to do the immunizations. I am not against the vaccines, but I am saying that we should postpone it for few months or a year, let the immune system to be developed similar to developed countries where the immune system of children because of exposure to bacteria and viruses, it is mature enough to handle vaccines and therefore we cannot say, okay the whole world should not be immunized. We never said that, what I am saying that children in America and Europe are different from children in Africa and Middle East and South America. Therefore,
we should let the immune system to be developed to a level that they can handle the viral antigens and therefore can handle the vaccines.”
At Risk & Ill Infants, Contraindications, SIDS & SBS
Vaccines, at Risk Infants, Pre Screening, Delays, Single Virus
“I think the only way the system works that the pyramid, it goes from the top to the bottom, if pediatrician is here and from pediatrician goes to the baby, right, so from the top National Institute of Health or the government for me is the top of the pyramid. Every change, any change should come from the top the bottom, so if they will recommend so kind of research that will have preimmune screening in place, based on that we can classify children as you know good immune system versus no good immune system, then that information or that prescreening will be recommended from the government to organization of the pediatricians in American College of Pediatrics and then American College of Pediatrics will their members to do these prescreening, only in that situation everything will be in place. Otherwise, pediatricians by themselves cannot do it. So, our choice is to educate the public, the public will go to the government and influence the government to fund some kind of research to do this prescreening of the immune system and based on that hopefully one day five years from now, 10 years from now, we will have prescreening in place which pediatricians will do them in their offices or send them to other laboratories who have the capacity to measure the immune system. That is the only way we can prevent this.
– So in fact we would need to devise a difference set of the mandated schedule based on the immunity level, that the classifications of the immunity level of these children. We need separate mandated schedules.
Yes absolutely, absolutely. Otherwise, you know, at least if they cannot do that, I believe they should separate the viral antigens. They should not given all three at the same time, hepatitis B should not be the first day, they should wait at least six months and from six months and on they give each viral antigen, you know, one at a time.”
Vaccines, How Long Should you Delay After Illness?
“I think you know if the child is having weight loss or is not gaining weight, absolutely you do not do immunization until the child’s immune system is back to normal and having good diet, eating well, and gaining weight and that level can handle the viral antigens, but when it is losing weight meaning the immune system is not functioning. That is the best indication that the immune system is not ready to handle vaccines. So, they should wait until all that is over, so we cannot put a time limit of a month or two or six months, in this case you have to wait until the child’s immune system is so strong that he is able to handle those viral antigens, but not all at the same time, one at a time.
-So, even for an infant a four week lapse would be satisfactory?
I believe so. It is much better than to just give all of them mixed together and give them to that child.
– And on the weight gain factor, okay, but what about symptoms of illness or cold, how much time should we give an infant before we could safely administer vaccines.
I think if there is any cold or flu, about two months.
– Two months from the end of the symptoms?
Vaccines, Unsafe with Asthma, Allergies
“I think patients with tendency to allergy in general and asthma, it is not safe to give them immunization.
– At all?
At all or should be given very, very carefully at least you know one at a time, not multi doses.
– I see some pretty scary pictures of eczema babies that were administered the smallpox vaccines. Is there anything that could be done if this kind of a reaction occurs or is it…..
I don’t know. That is…..
– I guess not.
Again, you have to get to the bottom of that. For example, I know that children who have milk allergy, they develop significant amount of eczema. So, if you put them on milk-free diet and they improve, two months or three months later they may be able to handle the immunization.
– Some more similar studies would have to be done basically to..
– To determine if it is safe.
Vaccines, Infant Health & History, Cord Blood Screening. SIDS, SBS
“– the administration of vaccines is contradictory in case of complications with infants such as premature babies, underweight babies, genetic predisposition to diseases, to seizures; meanwhile, I am being told that no prescreening is really made and across the board most infants are being vaccinated coming into the whole issue of shaken baby syndrome and sudden infant death, a lot of these babies after the fact we find out that their family history should not have predisposed so early to vaccination, what are the guidelines. Why isn’t screening done. What should we avoid?
I think, again, firmly believe that when immune system is not developed we should postpone the immunization, and exactly your question, right now you said that certain underdeveloped children or some with some type of diseases which their immune system is not mature, those individuals, that is why they recommend no immunization,
but I have also experienced with pediatrician which I sent my own niece to the pediatrician and asked her not to immunize at age 3 months, wait and immunize at age 6. Her answer was that if I will not do that, the State of California will put me in jail.
So, another meaning that the pediatricians they don’t have a choice. They have to go according to their books. They don’t have a means to screen the children to see whether or not they have a good immune system or not a good immune system, whether they can handle the vaccines or not handle the vaccines, so pediatricians are going according to the books and recommending immunization.
Now, as an immunologist I am sure there is a way and this is where research could come in play, and for example take cord blood. When a child is born, take some cord blood and test for some markers of the immune system in it. If you find some of those markers are in place, you can say, yes this child’s immune system is more mature relatively and can handle immunization. Another child if it does not have those immune markers in the cord blood, then we can say well at least in this case wait three months or six months. This is something that should happen at the national level and research should be done at least with cord blood. It is so easy to obtain. Do some immune system analysis on those and follow to see which children are developing autism versus those who are not developing autism and that is going to solve the problem in the future and that is the only way we can do prescreening.
A: So, systematically every infant should have the immunity level checked.
O: That is (my???) opinion, yes. At least in states such as California which children are so much prone to autism.”
Safe Formulations & Testing Antibodies
Vaccines, Why do Outbreaks Occur in the Vaccinated? Need to test Antibodies
“I don’t think so the vaccines induce epidemics. That shows the failure of vaccination. If a vaccine was given to a child which the immune system was not working and the pediatrician wrote in the file, yes immunization is given and that is it, and they don’t have even a way to measure, or there is a way, but they never follow to see really if the child made antibodies against that vaccine, to see if that child has indeed antibodies and protected in the future against measles infection,
so what happened, that is a failure of the system. They give the immunization, they don’t check to see whether or not they make antibodies in order to protect it. So, I believe that you know those epidemics is due to failure of the vaccines to induce antibody in the individuals getting the vaccines and therefore we think they are protected, but they are not protected because the vaccines in the first place did not work and the immune system did not respond against it and therefore they are prone to measles infection.”
Current Vaccines, Can Any be Safely Given to Children?
“With the current schedule for sub population of children, none of those vaccines could be safe and what I mean by that, I am an immunologist, some children their immune systems gets matured later than other children.
So those children which their immune system is not mature first day you know after birth and they give them hepatitis B obviously will have significant side effects from it.
Furthermore, when then give them at three months I believe the MMR and later on other vaccines, if their immune system is not mature enough, will not be able to handle all those viral antigens plus preservatives, so therefore for those sub group of children which their immune system is not mature I believe we should postpone the immunization.
I am not saying that do not immunize, I am saying that postpone the immunization by six months or a year and believe me nothing is going to happen in those six months or a year of delaying immunization because the body is victorious.
The antibodies from the mother can protect the child at least for six months so therefore easily we can postpone the immunization for six months and then give opportunity for the immune system to get matured and then give them the vaccines.
Furthermore, I am personally against giving three viral antigens simultaneously. Why we cannot separate them? Give one viral antigen at three months, the next one give at four months, and the next one at six months or so forth to separate them because the immune system when it is bombarded by three different viral antigens it is going to break at a certain level. So, therefore again I am not against vaccination but I am against the current protocol of vaccinations.”
Pro Vaccines, but Safe Vaccines, Single Virus, No Toxic Chemicals
“I am not opponent of the vaccines. I am proponent of vaccines, but safe vaccines. What are safe vaccines? Okay, the safe vaccines are those who do not have toxic material as a part of their components and merthiolate is a toxic material and should be removed and I don’t understand why it is so difficult, why people cannot accept that something which is toxic should not be in the vaccines and simultaneously should not be given to children which their immune system is not mature with three different viral antigens.
So, again I am trying to emphasize that or reemphasizing that when we give injection or giving oral vaccines, we are talking about one or two or three different viral antigens plus the preservatives plus the adjuvant given to a child which in some cases the immune system is not mature enough
and we are already, I started my discussion that we know these two factors, infections and toxic chemicals are behind many, many complex diseases in our society.
Yes, the vaccines prevented many infectious diseases, many infectious agents disappeared from our society, but that doesn’t mean that we have to give unsafe vaccines to the children which their immune system is not mature.”
Safe Vaccines, Single Virus, Mature & Healthy Immunity, Test Antibodies
“Again, I am not against immunization. I am saying that let us do immunization, but do it correctly. Also, in those countries who do not do immunization and the numbers which you are quoting may be correct. They should be immunized, but they should be immunized correctly, not you know three or five different viral antigens at the same time.
– So you agree that an unvaccinated population would be more so under constant threat of these kind of widespread epidemics that we used to see.
Oh that is correct. Let us say if a child right now is in kindergarten and was immunized or was not immunized, suddenly he is getting measles infection and goes to school, the other children will be in danger of developing the disease because I did demonstrate to you that not every child which has been immunized is having enough or high levels of antibodies to be protected against that and that is why from time-to-time we seen even in Los Angeles I have seen children are developing measles.
– So it would probably be in our interests to just clean up the vaccines and make sure people are….
Exactly, that is really my… Really the overall message from my you know interview today is that I am not against immunization, let’s do the immunization, but first make sure the child’s immune system is mature enough that it can handle it. If not, then you have to postpone it until the immune system is mature and then do the immunization.
– But meanwhile the entire fabrication procedure of vaccines should probably be a little bit revised.
Right absolutely, and then pediatricians also should have some way to do followups. You did immunization, make sure the child made antibodies against the vaccines. That is you know a test they can do it every laboratory right now and they can measure antibodies, production of antibodies against it.
So, you know the problem is this, that pediatricians are doing the immunizations, they don’t follow the child to see if the child made ample amount of antibodies in order to be protected against disease in the future.
To do that is a simple blood test, just remove a few drops of blood, send it to a laboratory and ask for hepatitis B antibodies, ask for measles, mumps, and rubella antibodies, two to three months after giving the immunization you can draw blood and check for that. If the antibodies are produced, then the child is protected. If it is not produced in ample amount, may be you need to repeat the immunization. So, it should be a way to do a followup. That is really the message which pediatricians are not doing it right now and they should do that.”
Vaccines, Need to test Antibodies. His Family as an Example
“if the immune system is working properly and that person is administered with viral antigen whether from vaccinia or the human measles.
Yeah, yeah, it is going to be protected against them if the immune system is working properly, but the problem is that we are giving the vaccines and we think everybody is having perfect immune system.
That is not the case and those do not have perfect immune system are not going to make the antibodies and therefore they are not protected, simple as that.
Believe me, I have measured antibodies against measles in let us say 100 people. Out of 100, only about 50 to 60 had good levels of antibodies, 20-30 they didn’t have any levels of antibodies. So, therefore we cannot ??? immunization is going to protect us against measles infection for the rest of our life.
Depends how much antibody we made in the first place.
Let me give you another example. I was measuring antibodies against measles in my own blood which I am 60 years old and my three kids which were born in America and they tell us that when we grow older and older levels of antibodies disappear right and therefore when we are very old we get all these viral infections,
but believe me this is the exact fact what we found, levels of measles antibody in my blood was 780 units, my son who is a 21-year-old was only 280, the two daughters one of them is 20 now and the other one is 17, their levels were less than 100, okay, so the younger they had lower levels of antibodies,
so we are fooling ourselves by thinking that by just going to pediatrician and getting injected by the vaccine we are going to make so much antibodies which is going to protect against this infection forever.
Yes, I was born in middle east, I was exposed several times, I was immunized and also I was exposed so many times to this virus, that is why I had the level of 780 at age 60, therefore I am going to be protected against that virus for the rest of my life, but not my children who are born in America.
– Is that possibly because of this dilution factor of the antibody production because of the multiple viral load?
Can Antigens or Peptides Provoke Antibodies? Lyme Disease, Borrelia
“I believe that sometimes that you can choose small antigen from the whole cell wall of the microorganism, then antigen or peptide can give you protection against the whole bacteria.
I have personal experience with Lyme disease, that I took just a simple peptide from the membrane and injected to the rabbit and that rabbit made antibodies against all the antigens of the microorganism, Borrelia, so by removing some of the bacterial antigens and introducing peptides or pure antigens, I think it is not wrong if they have the science behind it that after injections the individuals producing antibodies against you know the whole microorganism, ”
Safe Vaccines, Conclusion
Pre Screen Cord Blood, Delay, Single Virus, Test Antibodies
“Absolutely, I think you if the greatest message I have today in here that you can take it to the highest level, we should develop free screening for the immune system and to determine whether or not a child can handle multi-viral vaccination. Is it feasible? As an immunologist I am telling you, absolutely yes. Those methodologies are in place, we can take a drop of blood or a few drops of blood from the cord blood and test some of those cytokines, lymphocytes and so forth and see whether or not the immune system is mature enough which in the future can handle the viruses, so we need to do something. That is the message that I would like to be delivered, hopefully from here, to the highest level which hopefully in the future that message will go back to the pediatricians to give them the tools to do prescreening and then vaccination.
– And I guess a followup to make sure the antibodies…
And followups to see if they make antibodies, absolutely, none of them are doing this.
– Now, if, okay that would be your advice to congress. Now, since knowing that all this will take time and money, what about advice to the parents, the public, what can they do right now to protect their kids from this, 1 in 150 roulette shot at their child for autism and all these diseases. What can they do if the pediatrician doesn’t have time to evaluate their case histories, what do they need to look for, what should they avoid and how could they protect their infants until there are these changes.
I think you know, if, first of all let me say that public are really very smart, really I have the chance to work with the parents with children with autism and other type of diseases, they are very smart, they read the literature, they understand it, if they can take the information
and convince their child’s pediatrician to postpone at least for three months will be great help and can save some of these children from developing immune abnormalities in the future including autism. Now that is a big if.
I told you my own story that the pediatrician was completely opposing the fact that not to immunize or even postponing the immunization because she was saying that she will go to jail. I don’t think that is the right answer.
Pediatricians are not going to go to jail if they will postpone the immunizations. So, the parents should be smart, look at the health of their babies, and if they see the child is healthy enough, eating well, smiling, then can take the child to pediatrician and do their immunization. Otherwise, wait three months and then take it to pediatrician.
I am going against the will of the pediatricians in here, but I think that is the only way we can help many children’s immune system to be developed, so when they are immunized not to develop some of these immune abnormalities.
And what about the cases of these multi-viral loads, the MMR vaccines, the DPT vaccines, I have heard actually quite a bit about the DPTs being very dangerous since postponement will not resolve this issue what can the parents do about….
The multi-viral could be, absolutely the answer is now, the virus should be divided to virus 1, 2, 3, and 4 and should be given number 1 first, wait if it possible one month or two months and then given number 2 and then wait another two months, give number 3, wait another two months give number 4, number 5, and number 6. That will be the most ideal way of immunization.
– But since the vaccinations…
Presently I am talking about because we don’t have the way of prescreening right now.
– Is it possible to ask for these shots in individual…
Absolutely it is possible. How did they make them in the first place? They made antigen 1, antigen 2, they made antigen number 3 and mixed them together.
– Oh right, but I mean is it available on the market?
If you know the parents will demand that, yes it will be available and is available.
– So it is currently manufactured individually. They can if we request it, if it is demanded it could be done immediately.
Vaccines, Vitamin C & A Prior to and After Minimize Damage
“What can we do in order to improve the immune function, in particular if a mother has a child and would like to immunize,
if would like to enhance the immune function of that child before immunization, the best way to do that is to supplement with antioxidants,
in particular vitamin A which enhances the mucosal immune system plus vitamin C not only enhancing the mucosal immune system, also enhancing the immune system in general.
So, imagine that for a week you put that child which you think the immune system is not working in the child very well with some of these anti-oxidants chewable whatever and then you build the immune system and take to the pediatrician and get the immunization.
I think that way you can help a lot your child to minimize the side effects of the immunization or the vaccines.”
Vitamins in the News VS in the Laboratory
Why do Vitamins Get so Much Bad Press? pt1
“I believe this is a trend and I will be frank as possible because our media is influenced by drug companies.
– Because they…
That is the bottom line, yes, how come I can quote you 5000 articles about vitamin C for prevention of cancer, enhancement of immune function, for prevention of cardiovascular disease, inflammation and name it for skin disorders, many other studies as well. They never mention those articles. Every time we talk about vitamin C, they bring just one article published about vitamin C enhancing production of kidney stone. So, where is the balance?
– And in fact?
One against five thousand, still one article is getting more publicity than 5000 articles published in scientific journals telling us that vitamin C is good for our health. So, where is this balance? So, the answer is our media is biased by drug companies because our society is controlled by drug companies and they way they are trying to sell drugs and not vitamins for prevention of diseases.”
Why do Vitamins Get so Much Bad Press? pt2
“Because the study I remember, also they said if you take more than 25,000 specially smokers, you know, that is another study. They quote a lot about development of cancer due to vitamin A.
– Because I have actually read a lot of studies that showed that there was a huge success ratio of treating leukemia with vitamin C and 25,000 IU of vitamin A.
– There are a lot of studies detailing that vitamin A really helps against leukemia, so it is confusing to hear that…
– That, that number of units in correlation with smoking can actually cause cancer.
– I guess you got to see…
So we have a negative article about vitamin C done many years ago about kidney stone, negative article about vitamin A in smokers, and now vitamin E.
But it is only one article, not 5000, not 10,000.”
Hepatitis C Cured in 3 months with IV C 50g 2x Week
“The only experience I have… personal experience. I had a TV program and in that TV program a lady called me from Sweden and she told me that her daughter has hepatitis C and she went to mainstream of doctor, he told her she has to live with this, for the rest of her life she has to take interferon treatment. And she asked me whether or not I know about anything alternative. I mentioned IV vitamin C, she should go and find someone who is practicing and using IV vitamin C.
Six months later I got a phone call from her thanking me for returning the life of her daughter and you know, to making her healthy because she was telling me that she was tested even by PCR for hepatitis C, she was absolutely, absolutely negative for hepatitis C and she used 50 gram per day IV vitamin C for a period of three months, two injections per week.
– Two injections of 50 grams each per week?
– For …
For three months.
– And …
That is the only success story I have.
– And there was no trace of hepatitis C in her body.
That’s right. That’s correct.
– She was cured of hepatitis C.
Vitamins Counter Arguments ( Expensive Urine, Kidney Stones, Cancer, DNA Damage)
Expensive Urine? Vitamin C, Sick VS Healthy Needs pt1
Expensive Urine? Vitamin C, Sick VS Healthy Needs pt2
“The study I was mentioning was in healthy individuals, but
a different study which was published in his Journal of Immunotoxicology and Immunopharmacology, was done
semi-blind. What… what do I mean by that is that
the doctor selected his patients who had chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.
I didn’t know about it.
So what he did,
he drew blood, sent it to our laboratory and then he gave them 50… 60 mg per kg body weight, another meaning, around three to five grams powdered vitamin C put in a glass of water, they dissolved it and drank it and
told them to come back 24 hours later and then drew another set of blood, they sent it to our laboratory.
We did just …
the only thing we knew that the doctor is asking for looking at T-cell function, B-cell function, lymphocyte sub-population and natural killers…
so another meaning that the doctor wanted to count the soldiers of the body from one hand, from other hand to see if the soldiers of the body have enough ammunition to fight the infection and viruses and so forth.
So when we did that we were blinded,
after one year, he did close to 100 cases and then he came to my laboratory and he said, well let’s go ahead and break the code and compare the results side by side.
When we put the results side-by-side meaning blood before the use of vitamin C and 24 hours after use of three to five grams of vitamin C, were unbelievable.
In about 70% of the cases, we found the number of the soldiers in the body did not change but
the functional capacity, how to fight the enemy, the viruses and the bacteria changed very significantly
and we call that T-cell function and B-cell function.
Another test was natural killer selectivity.
This is a cell knows how to fight cancer cells in our system, and that cell in particular in case of natural killer selectivity was significantly elevated in 70 of the cases almost to ten fold by just taking three to five grams of soluble vitamin C orally.
So that was the best conclusion that three to five grams of vitamin C in individuals who have low natural killer selectivity, low T-cell function, low B-cell function can enhance their immune function and protect them against viral infection and cancer in the future.
These patients were patients selected for having chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. Remember these patients to begin with have very low natural killer selectivity, low T-cell function and low B-cell function
by giving the vitamin C three to five grams a day completed the immune system towards having fighting capacity against viruses and cancer cells. So therefore in this case, three to five grams was very, very beneficial to patients with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.
– And how long did this study last? Was it just one time over 24 hours?
Over 24 hours and some he continued for a month and in case of T-cell and B-cell function was sustained and therefore the conclusion of that was if you want to keep your immune system strong, you better use everyday some levels of vitamin C.
Counter Argument – Kidney Stones
“I never heard of any adverse reaction besides the article which everybody is quoting that high levels of vitamin C causing kidney stone and that’s the only, you know, article everybody is using but again my experience is with oral vitamin C and again was ascorbate, yes, sodium ascorbate, potassium ascorbate, calcium and whatever magnesium ascorbate, up to 5000 or 5 grams, no side effects at all.”
Counter Argument, Vitamin C & Kidney Stones, Vitamin E & Cancer
“– And even I think the study on kidney stones, there has been so many counter studies and analysis of data of decades of mega vitamin C use that actually showed the contrary within the population of the studies that in fact there was less incidence of kidney stones.
Right, if that was correct, right now there should have been 200 or 500 articles about vitamin C enhancing kidney stone development, so how come there is only one article, right, so why they are bringing every time that single article.
Now, the same thing happened with vitamin E.
Remember, you know, vitamin E….recently saying that vitamin C is causing cancer,
They disregarded completely 10 or 20,000 articles in scientific journals about vitamin E enhancement again immune function and all the body functionality and just now __20:28___ and they are going to mention that article about vitamin E and enhancement of cancer which was you know, anyway if you look at the studies, the design and everything was flawed.”
Counter Argument – Vitamin C, Antioxidant, no DNA Damage
“Remember the issue of one page article in nature saying that vitamin C is pro-oxidant. Have you seen that?
Okay there was a study in England, what they did, they look at DNA damage by giving vitamin C and measuring the level of DNA damage
and that was only… you know… just one page, one graph. What they did, they look at two different markers of DNA damage, one of them is 2-dyoxy…uridine… one of them 5-oxy… oxo and one of them 8-hydroxyguanasine. 8-hydroxyguanasine versus 2-oxoadanine. Okay. And what they found, 2-oxoadanine was increased and 8-hydroxyguanine was decreased and then they forgot completely that or they disregarded completely that decreased of 8-hydroxyguanine… but only emphasized increase in 5-oxoadanine. Therefore,
the conclusion of the article was that vitamin C is pro-oxidant and when the newspaper picked this … picked it up, all over the world they said, vitamin C is causing cancer. Study shows in England that vitamin causing cancer. And exactly for that reason I conducted the study of the 500, 1000, 5000 all of that.
In addition, by looking at the immune function, we looked at apoptosis, meaning program cell death. How many white blood cells in our system are dying at a time of every, you know, single moment, when we put them in culture, and how that level of DNA damage 8-hydroxyguanasine,
the conclusion which was published in the Cancer Detection and Prevention, which I will hand you a copy of that, was that vitamin C up to 5000 gram enhanced the immune function, T-cell function, B-cell function, enhanced natural killer selectivity, decreased apoptosis, meaning less oxidative stress at cellular damage… at cellular level, meaning less oxidative damage to the cells when they consume even 5000 grams of … 5000 mg, 5 grams of vitamin C
and finally DNA damage, no change, no increase in DNA damage.
So my conclusion that… when I wrote the article was that if vitamin C enhances the functionality of the cells in our system, it is not increasing DNA damage, is vitamin C anticancer or is it pro-cancer.
So the conclusion was vitamin C is anticancer and they wrote a letter to the editor, the investigators from England and I responded to that and exactly what I am discussing in here saying that you did disservice to our community by letting them to misuse your data,
your data of increase in 5-oxoadanine versus 8-hydroxyguanasine together, if you put together is not showing, enhancement in DNA damage or DNA adduct. Therefore,
your data was misused and public mislead and because of your information many people stopped taking vitamin C which is disservice to our community. Based on my findings of immune enhancement, less apoptosis, and less DNA damage I believe vitamin C is anti-cancer, I am using 1 g vitamin C for my health how about you? I asked them question and that is in my letter to the editor and then after that they wrote a response to me, well we absolutely agree with you. In fact, in the next article we are going to publish pretty soon that we agree with your findings and vitamin C is not carcinogenic, it is not causing cancer, it is anti-cancer.
– And did they ever publish that article?
O: They did publish that article, yes.
– Because I had heard that in the original study it wasn’t so much intended to determine whether or not vitamin C caused mutation or damage to DNA because it was widely accepted that it wouldn’t, it was actually a test designed to compare two methods of DNA analysis.
– And in fact what they didn’t say was the old method of testing seemed faulty and that the new method seemed to be more accurate. They disregarded that whole concept of the test to focus on the negative findings of the old method of research.
Yeah the other, you know I am going to strengthen what you said right now.
You see, 5-oxoadanine versus 8-hydroxyguanasine is the ratio of 3:1 in the cell. If you have three units of 8-hydroxyguanasine and it is reduced and you have one unit of 5-oxoadanine is increased together in the favor of what, in a favor of decrease, so therefore
even their data was showing that vitamin C is anti-cancer,
but they forgot completely, they completely disregarded 8-hydroxyguanasine reduction, the just emphasized 5-oxoadanine increase and therefore
and therefore they mislead the public as I said. That wasn’t their intention to show that, you are absolutely correct. That wasn’t their intention to show that vitamin C is oxidative stress, it was opposite, so that is why they published another article later on and they did clarify that.”
Vitamins Counter Arguments, Conclusion
Vitamin C Prevents Cancer & Heart disease. Is Not Alternative Medicine
“Now, as you know there are many doctors recommending high doses of IV vitamin C. The mechanism of action of that is completely different from oral vitamin C. How that works, I don’t have an experience with that, my experience is only with oral vitamin C.
Now, in this regard I go to many meetings, immunology meetings, American Society of Immunology, Federation of American Society of Experimental Medicine which is next week in San Diego,
by reviewing the abstracts at least this year there are about 50 different presentations about how vitamin C can enhance the immune system and prevent cancer. I am again using the word cancer. Vitamin C can enhance the immune system and prevent cancer as well as prevent cardiovascular disease by inducing level of different cytokines, anti-inflammatory cytokines are good for inflammation, and all of cytokines enhancing natural killer selectivity and preventing tumor development in animal models, 50 different presentations, so this is really not,
We cannot call this alternative medicine. This is mainstream medicine who did research studies in animal model as well as in human, they came to absolute clear conclusion that vitamin C can prevent cancer and can prevent cardiovascular disease.”
IV vitamin C, Offers lab tests at cost to prove effects (-50%)
“Unfortunately in this type of studies that I was discussing with oral vitamin C, they are never being conducted with high doses of IV vitamin C, and in fact I did challenge some of those doctors who are doing these… so we need to do some of these immune functional assays before or … a week or a month later but then you know the excuse is… which is you know, very well taken that they need money, they need support and they don’t have … therefore they go based on clinical observation alone and they don’t do any immunological testing and that is why we don’t have the hard evidence to back up some of these claims and in this case I don’t have experience with those high doses.
– So it is basically just the lack of vitamins or you… basically open in your laboratory to this kind of examination provided funding can be brought to look into these things.
Oh absolutely. In fact even I offered 50% discount to those clinicians and again you know I am saying that… live in here that if they would like to do those type of studies I will give them 50% discount meaning I will charge only for reagent cost of those tests because we need to do those type of testing in order to prove whether or not very high doses of IV vitamin C are protecting us against cancer and other diseases. ”
About Immuno-Science Lab
About Immuno-Science Lab
“Okay immunoscience lab was established about 17 years ago dealing mainly with immune disorders or today we call them many complex diseases and since complex diseases are induced by environmental chemicals as well as infectious agents, so we developed laboratory testing to deal with early diagnosis of complex diseases which are induced by infectious agents and xenobiotics or toxic chemicals. We work with about 2000 different physicians from all over the country.
Yeah, so we work with about 2000 different physicians and these clinicians or physicians dealing with patients who have very, very complicated diseases where the patient goes on average to 10 to 20 different doctors and cannot find what is the problem with them or with the patients. So, finally they go to one of these doctors who believe that environmental chemicals or infectious agents are behind these diseases and then by treating the root cause of the disease they can reverse the course of disease development and they see significant improvement in their patients.”
Diseases and Toxic Exposure Treated (Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Gulf War Syndrome)
“Right, okay, example of diseases which we had a lot of success with are chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, Gulf War syndrome which there are lots of overlapping symptomatology among these diseases. If infectious agents are responsive over some of these diseases, then we measure or we do testing or the more sensitive testing called polymerase chain reaction or PCR which demonstrates that the patient is having mycoplasma or Chlamydia or Ureaplasma or other infectious agents in their blood and therefore when they are treated with antibiotics such as tetracycline for a period of a month or two or sometimes longer the doctors see significant improvement in clinical symptomatology.
That is one example. The other examples are patients who are exposed to toxic chemicals become significantly ill and then we do immunotoxicological evaluations on them where we look at their immune system, the function of their immune system, whether or not they have immune deficiencies or immunities and then we look at their neurological abnormalities based on laboratory testing, their liver function, putting together the picture we can demonstrate whether or not patient being exposed to toxic chemicals developed the symptoms of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.”

Testimony in the U.S Senate
Dr. Vojdani appeared before the US Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs on November 16, 1993 to provide testimony relative to immunological studies on blood samples of Persian Gulf War veterans and controls. His findings indicated that some of the veterans who had been exposed to chemical agents while serving in that war had neuroimmunological disorders. This testimony was instrumental in winning the passage of a law, initiated by Chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, Senator J. D. Rockefeller on November 22, 1993 that would provide free medical care to Persian Gulf War veterans.
