“Researchers who discovered that some supposedly random gene mutations are not quite so random after all say their findings offer clues to the causes of autism and other disorders.
“The international team of scientists sequenced the complete genomes of identical twins with autism and their parents and found that the DNA sequence in some regions of the human genome is quite unstable and can mutate 10 times more frequently than the rest of the genome.”
US News has to periodically promote the idea that autism is a genetic disorder. Nothing like blaming the parents. We haven’t advanced much from the days pointing to the refrigerator mom. Jonathan Sebat is a familiar name. He’s been working for years on genetic mutations and autism and using it to disprove a link to vaccines. I’m sure it’s why his work gets funded. I posted comments and all my links are live.
“’There is a link between seizures and autism, he said. About one-third of children with autism also suffer from epilepsy. "To the extent that autism is on the rise, seizures associated with autism are also on the rise,’ Hussain said.”
Two neurological disorders are “on the rise” and no one seems worried. Personally I have children with both problems and I link it all to vaccines. I posted a comment.
“We had friends with strong feelings on both sides of the fence. Many in the holistic community felt that most, if not all, vaccinations for children were not only archaic, but dangerous. I heard and read about how vaccines can damage children's immune systems, cause allergic reactions and have even been linked to conditions such as autism and MS. Scary stuff.”
It’s amazing that our children keep getting sicker and sicker while mainstream medicine remains clueless. No only that—they really don’t care how many kids have diabetes, cancer, autism, learning problems, bowel disease, and allergies. We have a generation of sick kids and officials continue on promoting their ever-expanding vaccine schedule, confident that more and more vaccines are never enough.
