"Flu Shot Kids" -- AOA 02.14.08

"A pediatrician who treats a large number of kids with autism tells me she has started to detect a new pattern. Most of the very youngest children are what she calls 'flu shot kids.' Their mothers got mercury-containing flu shots...

May 20, 2013, Washington Post: Measles outbreaks flourish in UK years after discredited research tied measles shot to autism

May 20, 2013, NY1: Family Of Autistic Man Claims He Was Tortured At Bronx Group Home

May 20, 2013, Psychology Today:  A Puzzle Piece? The Need for a New Symbol for Autistics

May 16, 2013, NewsmaxHealth.com: Johns Hopkins Scientist Slams Flu Vaccine

 
 
Washington Post

"More than a decade ago, British parents refused to give measles shots to at least a million children because of now discredited research that linked the vaccine to autism. Now, health officials are scrambling to catch up and stop a growing epidemic of the contagious disease."
 
In the face of all the evidence linking vaccines to autism, the Post still tries the same old lies.

"The family of an autistic man has filed a lawsuit claiming he was tortured at a Bronx group home.
"The suit alleges that 24-year-old Eduardo Sandoval was burned with a heated potato masher last June by employees at the home, which is run by the not-for-profit Leake and Watts."

"Rubenstein said that because of his client's autism, he couldn't describe the events or identify his attackers."

 How often will we hear about this kind of incident in ten years as more and more children age out of school and are dependent on the taxpayers for their support and care?

Psychology Today


"I have given thought to the use of a puzzle piece as a symbol for autism and have come to the conclusion that I must object to this. The implication is that an autistic person is not a whole person or is so mysterious as to not be understood. Because one seem autistic persons as not being able to be understood, there does not become any desire to try. The result of such an attitude is the furthering of programs which are not dignified and simply seek to alter the person, if even by force and coercion.

"Autistic persons need to develop a new symbol to embrace their need for autonomy, self determination, dignity, and their basic rights. This should be a symbol of liberation, a symbol of empowerment, a symbol of compassion and understanding."

To me, the puzzle piece symbolizes the ignorance and apathy of the medical community towards autism, a disorder affecting one in every 50 children, one in every 31 boys. To parents living with the nightmare of severely affected children, the failure of doctors to have any answers or show real concern, is a disgrace. Officially, autism has no known cause or cure. There's nothing a mainstream doctor can tell a new mother so that her child that was born healthy and is developing normally doesn't also end up on the autism spectrum by age two.

When a healthy child suddenly and inexplicably stops talking, loses learned skills and regresses into autism, no one in authority can explain it. Autism is now an accepted part of being a child.

"A Johns Hopkins scientist has issued a blistering report on influenza vaccines in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Peter Doshi, Ph.D., charges that although the vaccines are being
pushed on the public in unprecedented numbers, they are less effective and cause more side effects than alleged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Further, says Doshi, the studies that underlie the CDC's policy of encouraging most people to get a yearly flu shot are often low quality studies that do not substantiate the official claims.

"Promoting influenza vaccines is one of the most visible and aggressive public health policies in the United States, says Doshi of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Drug companies and public officials press for widespread vaccination each fall, offering vaccinations in drugstores and supermarkets. The results have been phenomenal. Only 20 years ago, 32 million doses of influenza vaccine were available in the United States on an annual basis. Today, the total has skyrocketed to 135 million doses."

Hearing that the flu shot isn't safe or effective comes as no surprise to us in the autism community, but it's nice to hear someone from a prominent medical center saying it, especially in the BMJ.

the puzzle is why more people don't understand how devastating Autism is and why people still dont get thT this is NOT a genetic epidemic!

All you "fence sitters" on AoA read this brilliant piece .
Beth Clay make sure you read this !

God bless Peter Doshi & Russell Blaylock

This garbage measles propaganda is definitely an orchestrated campaign with the Texas legal actions in mind .

More of the military style dirty tricks brigade .

Autism is not an accident . It cant be . Its deliberate .

Psychology today,

I actually agree with the puzzle piece because I know that it's not representing Autism but representing all the doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists who scratch their heads in bewilderment when you tell them that your child regressed.

"How puzzling for these professionals!"

And in spite of the fact, there there's no evidence whatsoever to show that this measles outbreak exists anywhere BUT in the media.
