“I do not recall treating any cases during my training. Now, MRSA infection is one of the top reasons for admission to most children’s hospitals. Our trainees now see dozens of cases annually.
“Similar stories can be told for vancomycin-resistant enterococcus, Clostridium difficile, tuberculosis and other microorganisms. We now practically marinate in antibiotics and resistant microorganisms in our hospitals, homes and schools; and it seems to me that we are not going to win this game.
“The rates of asthma, autism, Type 1 diabetes (the type not associated with obesity), Crohn’s disease, a variety of mental-health disorders, allergic disorders and autoimmune diseases are surging in the developed world.
“These trends worry me even more than others because they are unexplained. We only have a general sense that they are an unintended result of our modern lifestyle.”
Dr. Barnard used the words “worrisome” and “unexplained” to describe the deteriorating condition of our children’s health. It pretty much sums up how the medical community feels about what’s happening to kids today.
Pediatrician Navin Despande
“Parents either worry the vaccines might cause autism, as stated in a study that was later discredited, or worry about mercury content in vaccines. Vaccines have not had mercury in the last 15 years except for multidose flu shots, which they don't offer, he explained.
“Others may be worried that giving ‘too’ many shots at one time might impair their kids' immune system. ‘Thousands of vaccines at one time’ will not affect the immune system, he said.”
Seriously, Dr. Despande is right out of Paul Offit’s absurd claim that a child can stand tens of thousands of vaccines at once. I call it “Medicine for the Macabre.” I posted a number of comments.
“Nearly 1,800 of Anderson Community Schools’ approximate
7,000 students classify as special needs. That’s about 25 percent of ACS’ total
“The number is high, Special Education Director Angie Vickery said, but it’s not unique to ACS.
“According to the Pew Center on the States, nearly 20 percent of Indiana students in grades kindergarten through 12th are in special education programs.”
These are horrific numbers but no one seems
concerned. It’s amazing that the director of special ed can say, “In the
largest category are 623 speech/language students. But she added autism is the
fastest growing area, with 155,” but give us absolutely no explanation for why
it’s happening. How can we be so accepting of so many disabled
children? When it reaches 50 percent will people finally take notice?
Feb 3, 2013, Las Vegas (NV) Review-Journal: 'A dramatic increase in neurological diseases'
“But I do believe people should be fully informed, and I found Nurse Rupiper's presentation a tad one-sided.
“So I sent a copy to retired board-certified neurosurgeon and author Russell L. Blaylock, a former clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and currently a visiting professor in the biology department at Belhaven College.”
This was an exceptional editorial. Vin Suprynowicz actually gave us an expert to challenge the official safety claims. I posted numerous comments.
"American autism rights activist talks to Al Jazeera about the role of mental illness in the US gun control debate."
What is this? Is Ne'eman now the spokesperson for the autism community?
Listen to words. Notice how many times he mentions:
"mental health policy"
Ne'eman said the word, "neurological," twice and never made the distinction between autism being a neurological disorder or a mental illness. This guy with his arrogant, pompous attitude undermines everything we're trying to do.
“The truth is, we still don't have the answers, but research has shown that the increase is not entirely due to more effective diagnosing of this developmental disorder, which is characterized by varying degrees of difficulty with communication and social interaction as well as repetitive behaviors.
“Studies are pointing to a combination of genetic and environmental factors that raise a person's risk of developing the disorder. Scientists have linked a number of gene changes to the disorder, but have yet to nail down the environmental piece. …
“Braden Mullins, of Lake Placid, was diagnosed with PPD-NOS at the age of 12 (he is now 21). His diagnosis was later changed to Asperger's syndrome. His mother, Tammy Mullins, recalled how until the age of 2, Braden was meeting and even exceeding milestones. Then, his progress abruptly halted.”
As the victims mount, autism remains a mystery. I posted numerous comments.
“The needs of adults with autism will be the focus of a new professorship at Rutgers University thanks to a $1.5 million gift from two Princeton families raising children diagnosed with the developmental disability, university officials announced today.
“Located at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, the Karmazin and Lillard Chair in Adult Autism will pay for research and training future professionals to work in the growing field.
“New Jersey has the second highest rate of autism in the nation with one in 49 children diagnosed with the disorder that impairs communication, behavior and learning….”
Does anyone wonder why we have to study the needs of autistic adults? Doesn’t this show that autism isn’t the result of better diagnosing? More of the mystery of autism. Why can’t autistic adults go where autistic adults have always gone? And just where is that?
“A Harvard University analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.
“Studies Have Repeatedly Linked Fluoride to Reduced IQ and Brain Damage
“There are so many scientific studies showing the direct, toxic effects of fluoride on your body, it’s truly remarkable that it’s NOT considered a scientific consensus by now. Despite the evidence against it, fluoride is still added to 70 percent of U.S. public drinking water supplies.”
NIH money funded a Harvard study raising serious concerns about the use of fluoride in drinking water. Personally, I think that should be matter of grave concern to NIH/HHS/CDC/FDA and just about everyone else connected to government health. But, since I can’t imagine any official actually stepping up the microphone and announcing that a nationwide practice of exposing Americans to a toxin in their drinking water has been causing real harm to children, this will probably never get any real coverage and certainly no response from those in charge.
This can’t have come as a surprise to anyone at NIH. I’ve heard about the dangerous side effects of fluoride for years, and I’m just a mom in Wisconsin.
What’s really amazing is that NIH funded the study in the first place. (Maybe they should have advised the Harvard people on what the results should be.)
