in particular a recent paper cited there found that not only were the five brains of autism suffers who died that were autopsied all very high in aluminum, but the aluminum was found within cells supporting the theory that it was transferred there by macrophages which pick up the nanoparticles and microparticles of vaccine aluminum.
Also there are a number of papers confirming various steps of the theory that vaccine aluminum is transported to the brain and causes inflammation via raising Cytokine Interleukin – 6 levels there.
There is extensive evidence that parenteral aluminum is highly neurotoxic as well as a source of autoimmune disease even at much lower doses than the quantities administered in vaccines. See this survey for a clear discussion with citations: http://www.jpands.org/vol21no4/miller.pdf
the scariest result for me is Bishop et al NEJM 1998 reported a randomized placebo-controlled test on preemies that found for every 40 µg per kilogram administered the infant lost one mental development point, scale of 100 measured at 18 months. The first six months of the vaccine series contains about 4400 µg.
Notice how the CDC statement carefully avoids saying anything about aluminum or presenting any empirical evidence that the aluminum is not causing autism.
That settles the matter of showing that the CDC statement is not relevant to disputing the topic statement, but the following few remarks are also worthwhile.
The CDC Citation of the 2011 IOM report (which also didn't discuss aluminum) is carefully criticized here as misrepresenting their actual findings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFTLzmIciZM
The only paper the CDC sites for showing autism is unconnected to vaccines has two major problems. First it compares patients based on how many antigens they got, but DTP had 3004 antigens and no other vaccine they studied prevalent in their database had more than a handful so that as a practical matter they were comparing patients who had DTP and dozens of other vaccines to patients who Mostly had DTaP but not DTP and dozens of other vaccines, which tells you little but whether DTP by itself is causing more autism than the rest of the vaccine series put together. Second the lead author of this study was also the lead author of the 2004 study which a whistleblower co-author CDC senior scientist said was fraudulent. http://vaxxedthemovie.com/statement-william-w-thompson-ph-d-regarding-2004-article-examining-possibility-relationship-mmr-vaccine-autism/
Dr. Zimmerman, a leading pediatric neurologist and the government's lead expert witness in 2007 saying vaccines don't cause autism, has recanted and says now they do. in fact, he says he told government attorneys this in 2007 and they misrepresented his views to the court after firing him as their expert witness. "I explained that in a subset of children, vaccine induced fever and immune stimulation did cause regressive brain disease with symptoms of autism spectrum disorder."
There are "exceptions in which vaccines could cause autism."
He also described why he believes some of his patients got autism from vaccine.

also in the article: numerous Congressmen say political pressure from big Pharma prevents any investigation of whether vaccines cause autism.
There is quite a bit of epidemiological evidence that vaccine aluminum is causing autism. This includes correlation across times and countries between vaccine schedule and autism, Correlation between number of vaccines in a nations schedule and infant mortality, correlation across states by vaccine uptake, Correlation with hep B vaccine, and other things which are surveyed here:
The linked article by Dr. Peter Hotez presents no citations to any papers that study the question of whether aluminum causes autism. It does not cite nor mention the papers discussed in this graph that show mechanisms for vaccine aluminum to cause autism. It does not cite or discuss any of the evidence on the neurotoxicity of parenteral aluminum. Thus it is basically a strawman attack irrelevant to the question of whether vaccine aluminum causes autism.
Furthermore the studies that are cited on the question of whether thimerosal and etc. causes autism are fatally flawed by the fact that parents tend to vaccinate their kids unless they believe they observe vaccine damage, in which case they often stop. We know this because at least a thousand parents have posted videos to YouTube saying why they believe they observed their child given autism by a vaccine (and some of these are doctors). This natural behavior preferentially puts damaged or sick or autistic kids into the low thimerosal group in the study because they get no further thimerosal and the studies count total thimerosal. Thus these studies may be large but they are valueless for deciding whether thimerosal is or is not causing damage.
