“...any vaccine that includes aluminum adjuvant, you will get aluminum from that going into your brain...It is no longer safe to use aluminum in vaccination."

So I am prudent; and I only put my neck on the guillotine when it’s absolutely necessary; and that is now.”
As promised in my prior post, below is a video of Professor Chris Exley presenting the findings of his recent study, "Aluminium in brain tissue in autism" to a French audience. A transcript is also included.
Although Dr. Exley's findings are new, we now have scientific proof that it was never safe to use aluminium in vaccinations. Parents of children who have developed autism or experienced other serious injuries and even death following vaccines; as well as some courageous physicians and scientists, have been speaking out about the harm that vaccines can and do cause for many years. Not only have their stories and findings been ignored; but they are often degraded, discredited and humiliated.
When someone as knowledgeable and well respected as Professor Exley, who has been studying aluminium for over 30 years, can be "shocked" by new findings; change his opinion about the safety of aluminium adjuvants in vaccines; and humbly and courageously put his career on the line to tell the world; perhaps then those who cling to the belief that "vaccines are safe and effective" and "the science is settled" and have even been less than kind to those who question vaccine safety; should be equally humble and rethink their stance.
Thank you Professor Chris Exley and your team of researchers; and many thanks to the families whose deceased children made these findings possible. May God bless and take care of all of you.
Below is a full transcript of the above video -- Professor Chris Exley discussing his study, "Aluminum in brain tissue in autism".
“In United Kingdom, we were able to get brain tissue from five individuals. It’s very difficult to get these sorts of tissues. There are very few available. You can see how important this is to me because my saliva is disappearing here. I’m not normally nervous. I am now. (Stops to take drink of water.)
So we had the opportunity to do two things. One was to measure how much aluminium is in the brain of five individuals who died with a diagnosis of autism. The brain bank who supplied us with those frozen tissues also had fixed tissues for ten individuals who died with a diagnosis of autism. Fixed tissues you cannot use for measuring aluminium content; but we can use the methods that we have developed to look for aluminium in those tissues. So we have data on how much aluminium is present, and what I’m going to show you in a minute are some images of aluminium in brain tissue in autism.
The quantitative data, I would say, shocked me. The last time I was this shocked was when we measured aluminium in the brains of people who died with familial alzheimer’s disease. They only measured some of the highest brain aluminium ever reported. These autism tissues came close, a close second. In the paper, I specifically asked the question, “Why does a 15 year old boy who died with autism have a huge amount of aluminium in his brain tissue. There was no clear obvious explanation for this. All five of our individuals had, what I would call, pathologically significant, and in some cases, incredibly high aluminium content in a variety of the different lobes of the brain.
So this in itself was incredibly worrying. No other study like this had ever been carried out. The closest we know about any connection between aluminium and autism would be studies on hair; and you already know my opinions on that; and one or two studies looking at blood and urine; but really you’re talking three or four studies ever been carried out, all of them equivocal. We did this study to try to ascertain is there a case for a role for aluminium in autism.
The amount of aluminium we found, and I’m not putting the figures out now because even though this paper’s accepted, it is not yet available. When it becomes available, you will all be able to read it. It will be open access. I hope that will be in the next few days; but I’ll show you what we also did was to look at aluminium in the brain tissue; and we have developed, over the last five or six years, a method which is absolutely selective for aluminium. We are able to see aluminium in brain tissue using a method called fluorescence. It only sees aluminium.
The first set of images here is of an area known as the meningies in the brain; and this is the lymphatic system with the brain; and what you see here…First of all, aluminium gives orange fluorescence. Where the aluminium is very high in concentration it becomes a bright yellow fluorescence. Now, in our, in all the hundred brains that we looked at prior to this study, human brains, and particularly now alzheimer’s disease work, when we found aluminium, it was usually, in brain tissue, it was usually either associated with neurons or more often, what we call extracellular deposits. In other words, following the death of neurons and perhaps other cells of the brain, the aluminium was left over. We get a lot of cell death, of course, in alzheimer’s disease. So it was extracellular deposits of aluminum. What you’re looking at here are not extracellular deposits of aluminium. These deposits are inside cells. These cells are not neurons. These cells are essentially versions of cells you might have heard of known as macrophages, monocytes, inflammatory cells. They're the types of cell that, in the body, go around picking up things as housekeeping. Picking up things that we don’t want, getting rid of them. They’re also the same cells that go to the injection site of a vaccine and pick up aluminium at the injection site.
In this image here, we have evidence of these cells moving from the body into the brain tissue across the meninges and something similar happening here. We saw evidence that aluminium passes from the lymph system into the brain full of aluminium in monocytes, in inflammatory cells.
In this image we’re looking at across the blood brain barrier. Again, aluminium getting loaded up in these cells in the body and moving into the brain and taking the aluminium with them.
So in these subsequent images within the brain tissue itself, showing similar types of cells. In the brain we call these microglia of glial cells. They are the housekeeping cells of the brain and some of these can come from the body. Some of these are only in the brain and they picked up the aluminium in the brain. Perhaps what’s important in the case of autism is that the microglia are heavily implicated in the etiology of autism…It is believed that they do something, they alter the connectivity of the synapse of neurons. They alter the way that neurons can speak to each other. It’s called synaptic pruning. This is important. We all need it. It helps us to communicate; but in autism, we know that this process is dysfunctional. It does not work as it should do. If your microglia are full of aluminium, they are not functioning as they should do.
…I’ve been asked over many years now…Chris, we support a moratorium on the use of aluminium adjuvants in vaccines, do you? And I said, “no.” I’ve said no because i didn’t see there was a viable alternative to something that works extremely well and the reason other adjuvants are not used is because we know and accept that they are toxic. However, things have changed. To me, this tells me that regardless; any vaccine that includes an aluminium adjuvant, you will get aluminium from that going into your brain. It does not produce disease in all of us, clearly. There are other factors, and someone mentioned it earlier. Clearly there are other factors, probably genetic; which means that some people either have more transfer of aluminium into the brain in this form, or they retain the aluminium in the brain tissue for longer. There are clear differences in physiology, individual physiology, which means that some people are much more susceptible than others. However, it still reads that a significant proportion of people are probably suffering some form of brain disorder because of aluminium adjuvants in vaccines.
And now I’m probably along the line of saying, unless that vaccine is proven to save your life, I would not have it if it had an aluminium adjuvant. Thank you.
Q — From audience member In French
A — Aluminium has made our lives better; but we must use if safely as well as effectively. It must be used when it’s an advantage; and it must only be used where it is safe. It is no longer safe to use aluminum in vaccination.
Questions from interviewer are printed within the video in French. Below are Professor Exley's responses.
“So what we’ve been able to do is to measure aluminium in the brains of individuals who died with a diagnosis of autism; and we’ve also been able to look at the brain tissue using a microscopy method to see if we could see that aluminium. So what we found, perhaps shocking for me, was some of the highest amounts of aluminium ever in human brain tissue in individuals who died with autism. Some of those individuals only 14 or 15 years of age. So the first big finding is the very high amounts of aluminium in every case of autism that we looked at.”
“We have measured aluminium in more than 100 human brains. More than 100; and these ones for autism are right up close to the highest values that we’ve ever measured. So they are shockingly high, particularly because they are young people. We do not normally measure aluminium in the brains of young people. We don’t have those opportunities. So the other standout observation is that we then look into the brain tissue with a microscope to see where is the aluminium? In many of the other cases, for example in alzheimer’s disease; when we’ve looked for aluminium in brain tissue, we find the aluminium, we call it extracellular, not inside cells. We find it also associated with the neurons, the brain cells. In autism, for the first time, we find the majority of the aluminium is intracellular, inside cells; and not only that, it is inside neurons, but more is inside non-neuronal cells. These are, we call them, inflammatory cells, pro-inflammatory cells. Cells which can come from the body and cross the blood brain barrier and go into the brain carrying their aluminium with them. These are the types of cells that respond to inflammation in the body. They’re the type of cell that goes to the site of an injection; for example a vaccine with an aluminium adjuvant. They would load up with aluminium and they, it has shown us now that that aluminium can be carried into the brain, at least in autism in these cases.”
“Well, we, in this study, we do not identify the source of the aluminium but that we are all exposed to aluminium in everything we do, all through our lives, from the very young where we have it, unfortunately, in things like infant formulas and also, of course in our vaccinations; but also in many of the things that we do. We like to smoke. If we use antiperspirants. If we eat a lot of processed foods and processed drinks. Many cosmetics. There are so many different ways we are all exposed to aluminium throughout our lives. So it is almost; it is not almost, it is unavoidable at the moment; and we need to change some of those factors where we have concern that a particular root of exposure might be dangerous. And I would highlight, based on the results I’ve shown today, I would highlight aluminium adjuvants in vaccines as one area we should be very concerned about.”
“Anybody who knows me, first of all will know that I’ve been working on aluminium for more than 30 years. So when I come to an opinion with respect to aluminium and human health, it’s usually based upon decades of research. Up until this piece of research, I did not believe in a link between aluminium and autism, because there was not enough scientific evidence to prove that. I now 100% believe that aluminium has a role in autism because this piece of research is so definitive. It is clear and it is time that we take notice. So I am prudent; and I only put my neck on the guillotine when it’s absolutely necessary; and that is now.”
