(NaturalNews) Research that late last year identified an increased prevalence of stokes among younger populations has failed to properly identify and investigate all potential causes of this dire phenomenon. Since they have increasingly become associated with a range of other medical conditions in recent years, vaccines are the “elephant in the room,” to borrow the words of Gaia Health’s Heidi Stevenson, who believes vaccines may be a prominent causative factor in elevated stroke rates.
Back in October, a report published in the journal of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) found that between the years of 1993 and 2005, the stroke rate among individuals under the age of 55 increased by more than 44 percent. Many experts are apparently dumbfounded as to why there has been such a dramatic increase, and some have suggested that perhaps lack of exercise, poor dietary habits, obesity, and other chronic health and lifestyle factors may be to blame.
To their credit, these suggestions are all entirely feasible, and likely play a significant role in this epidemic of stroke cases. But the omission of vaccines as a possible factor is both negligent and irresponsible, considering that vaccines have been recently linked to causing narcolepsy, autoimmune disorders, and various other chronic health problems. According to Stevenson’s assessment, it is only logical that vaccines might play some role, at the very least, in triggering early seizures.
“A range of neurological disorders [is] associated with vaccines, including macrophagic myofasciitis, encephalopathy, epilepsy, convulsions, Guillain-Barre syndrome, nerve deafness, blindness, paralysis, sudden infant death syndrome, and of course, autism,” writes Stevenson. “Now that the earliest recipients of mass vaccination programs are entering middle age, why should we be surprised to find that they’re more likely to suffer from another indication of brain damage, stroke?”
