The mission of the Dwoskin Family Foundation has always been focused on children’s health, scientific research and raising awareness of adverse reactions to vaccines. The foundation was co-founded by Claire Dwoskin, a child health activist, sponsor and trailblazer of a global effort to address the increasing occurrence of chronic illness and disability, including autoimmunity and age related neurological diseases.
Dwoskin is the founder of Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI) which provides funding for medical and scientific research on vaccines and their ingredients. Some of the projects the institute has worked on involves the use of aluminum in vaccines. Aluminum is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin commonly used in vaccines and it is supposed to act as an exciting agent within the immune system.
The research points out that despite 90 years of widespread use of aluminum adjuvants, the agencies responsible for evaluating the safety of vaccines and their ingredients have not yet developed an adequate understanding about their mechanisms of action. A significant issue is in the safety of an ingredient that medical science has limited knowledge of, and which has shown surprisingly dangerous effects on health and ability. This research points out the harm in administering substances to children and adults without utilizing sufficiently rigorous research methods to support the safety of their inclusion in not one, but multiple vaccines administered throughout childhood. Current study designs do not assess vaccines or their ingredients for their cumulative or synergistic biological or genetic effects, or their reactivity with other substances humans are exposed to, such as glyphosate, a chemical in Roundup.
Specifically, aluminum vaccine adjuvants carry risks for autoimmunity, chronic brain inflammation and related neurological complications which may have profound and widespread negative health consequences. The research was conducted by researchers, Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic, and Dr. Christopher Shaw, a neuroscientist who are from the University of British Columbia in Canada. Dr. Shaw also serves as chair of the scientific advisory board at CMSRI.
In a previous study completed by Dr. Shaw, aluminum hydroxide injections were linked to motor deficits and motor neuron degeneration. This research was conducted originally to study the effects of aluminum adjuvants in anthrax and other vaccines which were used during the time of the Gulf War. Many veterans suffered from the multi-system disorder called Gulf War Syndrome (GWS). Those affected by GWS showed signs of neurological deficits including various cognitive dysfunctions and motor neuron disease.
The most likely culprit appeared to be aluminum hydroxide per the study’s conclusions, When the aluminum adjuvant was injected into mice, it resulted in motor neuron loss, motor weakness, cognitive impairments and impaired social and emotional behaviors. The mice displayed comparable neurological deficits, cognitive dysfunctions and motor neuron disease from the same age and weight adjusted doses of aluminum hydroxide that were administered to GWS victims.
The research funded by the Dwoskin Family Foundation and now CMSRI can study vaccines for their potential causal relationships to chronic health problems that are appearing with increased frequency after exposure to vaccines and their toxic ingredients. Studying the effects helps raise awareness and spread information about the harmful and adverse effects aluminum adjuvants and vaccines in general can have on the body.
