Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic is an early career postdoctoral fellow. She was awarded a PhD in 2009 in Biochemistry, from the Comparative Genomics Centre at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia. In 2010, she joined the Neural Dynamics Research Group at the University of British Columbia (Chris Shaw’s lab) and is currently researching the neurotoxic effects of aluminum vaccine adjuvants. Tomljenovic has recently become an Associate Editor of the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. She values open-minded discussions on controversial topics and the pursuit of truth in research endeavors, wherever they may lead.

Dr. Mercola Interview with Dr. Tomljenovic: How Vaccine Adjuvants Affect Your Brain
HPV Vaccine Safety and Efficacy Issues: Dr. Tomljenovic’s in Vancouver, 2015.
Dr. Tomljenovic: Regarding the questions, if there are no comments it means I will answer these questions during the show:
Which vaccines cause the antibodies to attack the brain?
Are some vaccines/adjuvants more prone to do this? Why or why not?
Comment:That is the million dollar question that no one knows the answer to because this issue has not been studied well enough. Even the pharma admits that they do not know exactly how the adjuvants work. I can give some quotes from the pharma experts.
Just wanted to let you know that I cannot answer this question any better than this.
Did you test OTHER body tissues, or just the brain?
Why would the phenomenon of mimicry only work on the brain tissue?
Comment: It does not work only on brain tissue, it can work on any tissue where there is mimicry between the antigen of the virus/bacteria and that of the host
Have you tried immunizing mice at reduced rates (fewer boosters, like they do in Scandanavian countries) and if so, do they have much fewer issues with autoimmunity?
Comment: We have not immunized the mice (we did not inject them with vaccines), we have only given the mice aluminum in the amounts equivalent to that given to children via vaccinations in the US and Scandinavia. At the time we did this study, we did not look for any autoimmune markers, only behavioral outcomes as well as gene expression in the brains of these mice. In both parameters there were abnormal changes (i.e. abnormal behavior and increased expression of certain pro-inflammatory genes in the brain as well as reduced expression of AChE = acetylcholinesterase which has anti-depression/anxiety effect. Low AChE activity is associated with deficits in neurodevelopment)
HOW CAN THIS BE REVERSED? Can the damage to the immune system possibly be corrected?
Comment: I cannot answer this, as I am not a medical doctor and I am not well acquainted with treatment methods.
Please explain about the two types of immunity: Humoral or Cellular
Please explain which one of these would be most active in autoimmune issues?
Do you feel any vaccines are necessary/safe, or do all vaccines need an overhaul?
Do you know how the polio vaccines given in Africa are actually causing polio in some cases?
Which vaccines would still have traces of Thimerosal?
Are there any vaccines that do not contain mercury or aluminum? Which ones do?
Which types of autoimmune illnesses might this type of reaction be linked to in humans?
What type of reaction?
Would this also affect behavior, then? Mental health?
Administration of aluminium to neonatal mice in vaccine-relevant amounts is associated with adverse long term neurological outcomes
Etiology of autism spectrum disorders: Genes, environment, or both?
