Hey dude, good research, but just a small tip.

Cut down and try to separate into more paragraphs. Most people on the internet glaze over comments that long and dense. Even adding a few line breaks will help make it look more attractive.

Again, great research, I just wanted to give a little bit of advice. Trying to help

Did they mention what form the aluminum was in? Most elements are detrimental to human health in one form, but harmless, or even required in others, ignoring the radioactive elements of course. For example chlorine and sodium are both dangerous to your health in elemental form, but when combined they make common table salt, which your body requires to function.

You've constructed your arguments logically and appear to have attempted succinctness. I have a few things to add if you don't mind.

1. In the U.S. they use mcg for communicating medical information. It is stupid, but she is using a form of correct symbols. µg is still a much better symbol.

2. Most studies on the effects of aluminium are of it in elemental or inorganic forms, while vaccines have aluminium in almost solely organic compounds. This suggests a further separation between the studies they cited and vaccines. However, I haven't seen the specific studies and they may have studied organic compounds of aluminium.

3. The only true study that has ever shown a correlation between vaccines and autism was later found to have falsified evidence. Later studies which cite it, and often multiple times through obfuscation and other studies which cite it. I cite A, then I cite B through study 2 which cites A as it's source for B. Therefore I have cited A twice. There has been no proper scientifically rigorous study that has shown even a likely causational link between autism and vaccines.

To continue, Ill just look at a few articles that anti vaccine proponents seemed to use frequently in their articles, 'The health effects of aluminium--a review' and 'Neurotoxicology of the Brain Barrier System: New Implications' (5,6). The first of these I am unable to read fully since it is behind a paywall and fuck that. The only thing I can find, and what people writing articles love to include is the final sentence of the abstract - "The adverse effects of aluminium that have been reported in recent years include Alzheimer's disease, dementia and hyperactivity and learning disorders in children." Boom, scary, aluminum causes your kid to lick windows on the school bus and be the biggest autist around based on that. What it fails to do, and what no one has elucidated on to me, is any sort of scientific backing of this. Sure, excess aluminum can be bad for you in a number of ways but so can excess sugar, salt, potassium, etc, there is nothing to fully suggest that the amount of aluminum in vaccines is what is causing this. However, I was unable to read it so it could certainly be possible that the study was able to fully prove vaccines cause autism, although I doubt it. Anyone willing to get an account and pay $40 to help me out is more than welcome to. The second article is just as vague, simply a review article that doesn't cite its sources well. Their big statement is "Exposure to aluminum in laboratory animals results in the development of neurofibrillary
tangles and degeneration of cerebral neurons." This uses lots of big words but essentially states, if you give lab rats lots of aluminum, their neurons degrade, the wiring of their brain tangles, and the rats get stupid. Again, little support numerically or scientifically as far as I've found. While I don't necessarily doubt the validity of their findings, I'm skeptical that they apply in such a way that vaccines are related to the study.
Finally, I just want to use my basic knowledge to deny a causal effect between aluminum and autism. Due to studies that show a correlation between countries with high levels of reported autism and high levels of aluminum in vaccines, many parents become concerned that the vaccines are the cause, however this is a very clear case of not understanding the difference between correlation and causation. Correlation simply shows two this are related, such as "Since the 1990s there are more cell phones and also more cases of obesity." This is 100% true and can be shown to have a positive correlation, however this does not suggest causation. Cell phones did not cause obesity nor did obesity cause people to get cellphones, cellphones come about from better and more accessible technology while obesity comes from less active lifestyles and increased amounts of processed and fatty foods. There is little data to show that obesity and cellphones are related, obese people may not have cellphones and people with cellphones may not be obese. Causation would be "When John was sick. John received medicine and John also got better." While John receiving medicine and John getting better are correlated, there is also data to suggest that the medicine is what caused getting better, since most people have the exact same thing occur, leading to a causation scenario. The link between vaccines and autism is purely correlation, vaccines are used to prevent disease efficiently and safely and are widely used due to advances in the medical field. Autism rates are increasing due to wider categories and better understanding of it. Correlation, not causation.
To conclude, I cannot 100% tell you that vaccines are 100% safe or unsafe, however no one can and anyone who says otherwise is kidding themselves. What I will tell you, and what others will support, is that vaccines are very safe, very effective, and are most likely not the cause of autism, however consulting with your doctor over the safety of your child is never a bad thing.
