Re: NIH will partner drug industry to study Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders

Autoimmune diseases are pandemic and increasing exponentially. Curiously, the exponential increase of autoimmune diseases parallels the exponential increase of vaccines. Since autoimmune diseases and vaccines both relate directly to immunity, it’s reasonable to wonder if vaccines may play a causative role in the prevalence and severity of autoimmune diseases.
 Is autoimmune disease a synonym for vaccinosis?
