To clarify, The Calm Canary does not believe that the principle of vaccination is necessarily a bad one - indeed, the principle of vaccination may prove to be medically useful someday. Can vaccination confer immunity? Yes, it can, though it often doesn't. But in its modern form - in its present manifestation - vaccination is a public health nightmare.
On the issue of autism: removing Eli Lilly's Merthiolate (thimerosal, an ethylmercury preservative) from *MOST of the childhood vaccines will not substantially reduce autism in this country, according to Dr. Russell Blaylock.
Would removing the little finger cause the entire hand to cease functioning?
The weapon held in this hidden, injurious hand is pathological microglial activation - that is, microglial activation that persists, does not turn off as would a normal immune response. This causes an immunoexcitotoxic reaction in which the microglia are made to secrete glutamate, which causes brain inflammation. This process may constitute an underlying common mechanism of disease in Alzheimer's, autism, MS, and many other related diseases of the nervous system, according to Dr. Russell Blaylock.
Many substances found in vaccines contribute to pathological microglial activation, including neuroinflammatory viral fragments, aluminum adjuvants which accumulate in brain tissue, Merthiolate which accumulates in brain tissue and disrupts mitochondrial function, squalene which causes autoimmune disorders, and MSG, which is known to be neurotoxic in high concentrations (and which many people go to great lengths to avoid being exposed to in their diet much less having it injected IM). Vaccines also contain aluminum lake dyes, and polysorbate 80 (Tween 80), known to reduce fertility in both males and females. "Tween 80" is found in the ***Fluarix (H1N1 swine flu) vaccine. [see post "H1N=1" for my personal experience with the swine flu shot] Formaldehyde and other ingredients are also present.
This microglial activation stuff is serious business, and many of the vaccine ingredients, famous and lesser-known, cause it.
Vaccine videos for your viewing pleasure.
1. Here is part 1 of a 14 part video by Dr. Russell Blaylock on vaccines:
part 1: "Vaccines and Autism" - Russell Blaylock, M.D.
(you should be able to find parts 2-14 easily if you simply watch them in sequence.)
I am inclined to believe what Dr. Blaylock says about vaccines because he seems to make sane nutritional recommendations on his website - rather uncharacteristic of an M.D. In my book, this raises his credibility.
2. "Brain Inflammation, Microglia Activation and Autism" - Kurt Woeller, D.O.
3. Here is part 1 of a 6 part video by Dr. Russell Blaylock on vaccines:
"Vaccines and Brain Development" - Russell Blaylock, M.D.
(you should be able to find parts 2-6 easily if you watch them in sequence)
"What's Coming Through That Needle?"
I found this video by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny on vaccine ingredients to be very informative. I had never before been aware that vaccines contain MSG and so many other strange ingredients. The DVD may be streamed for free at these links:

And she's not lying. Anyone can verify her ingredients with this table from the CDC:
Some people go to great lengths to avoid dietary MSG - myself included. The last time I was exposed was when I was traveling in China three years ago. I was miserable for weeks! Why shoot up with it?

6. "RFK, Jr.: Science Shows That Autism -- Mercury Link Exists" with Dr. Boyd Haley
In this fascinating video the speakers, Kennedy and Haley, note that ethylmercury is a gender-specific toxin**, and that its toxicity is enhanced by: aluminum, testosterone, antibiotics, and more.

*Here I say 'MOST' because, contrary to popular notions, some vaccines still contain thimerosal. Specifically, the multi-dose vials of flu shot still contain thimerosal. The flu shot is recommended for all pregnant women, and is recommended multiple times/year for the rest of the population. So, if we can stretch the 'hand and little finger' analogy I used earlier any further, removing thimerosal from most of the childhood vaccines but not removing it from the flu shot (and continuing to include ingredients that enhance its toxicity, and especially neurotoxicity) is like cutting off only the TIP of the little finger of the hand wielding the weapon of pathological microglial activation, and will not reduce the incidence of vaccine-induced disease substantially.
**8 times as many males as females get a social development disorder known only as 'ass-burgers'. If you become weary of watching serious vaccine material and need some comic relief, please see these two videos: South Park, S15E7: You're Getting Old: http://www.streamsouthpark.com/episodes/stream_south_park_season_15/stream-youre-getting-old/ and S15E8: Ass Burgers: http://www.streamsouthpark.com/episodes/stream_south_park_season_15/stream-ass-burgers/ (These are some of the best episodes available on kill-a-girl Gardasil, the flu shot and Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other hot topics. Stan begins to see things clearly as they are (shitty) and encounters a group known as the Secret Society of Cynics, who explain that aliens (or robots from the future - whatever, fuck you!) are putting out a brainwave that makes people think everything is okay. (so close to the truth) The SSC tells Stan that the only way he can cope is with Jameson Irish Whiskey. This is just numbing behavior in response to an unpleasant daily existence, but ultimately ends up like an attempt to push a cart with a rope. [see post "Indigo Revolution!"] Enjoy!)
***only to be injected into listeners of Tween Wave music, and only to be injected for the purpose of fertility impairment during the Tween time - the years 2009-2012, according to package insert instructions. Just kidding. If this joke doesn't yet make sense, see the two videos at the double asterisk note above.
