Nov 4, 2013, The Stir: What Happens in the First Days of Baby's Life Could Increase Autism Risk

 
HTR News Two Rivers, WI

"When I came to the Two Rivers School District more than 20 years ago, we had one student who had the label of autism.

"Today we have 29 students in the district with the label of autism. National statistics suggest that 1 in 88 children are now identified as being on the autism spectrum. That rate of identification is significantly higher than it was 10 years ago. Some believe that the numbers are higher because we are more aggressive in our identification, and the other thought is that prevalence, for unknown reasons, is higher. Regardless of the reason for an increase in the rate of autism, as a school district we need to do our best to identify and address the needs of each autistic student. . . . ."

Seriously, when it comes to autism, everything causes autism, nothing causes autism. The increase is real, there is no increase. This is today's most frightening comment: "REGARDLESS OF THE REASON FOR AN INCREASE IN THE RATE OF AUTISM. . . "

The reason the director of pupil services in Two Rivers, WI talks like this is because that's what he reads from doctors and officials. For 20 years they've been scratching their collective heads over the autism rate. We're all happily brainwashed into thinking of autism as the perpetual mystery no one can solve, despite years of trying. It's time we did more to address autism than just train teachers and buy iPads.

"A new study claims that when pediatricians assume that parents will consent for their kids to be vaccinated, the parents are more likely to agree to the vaccinations.

"According to the Los Angeles Times, even parents who resisted vaccinations for their children usually gave in, if the pediatrician or nurse practitioner was persistent.

"Amazingly, in 2013, doctors actually have to explain the scientific benefits of vaccinations to parents and push their case to get a baby or toddler vaccinated.  . . .
"There have been false rumors spread that vaccines can cause autism and other problems, which have been repeatedly debunked, reported The New York Times in 2011."

Give parents no choice. How dare they doubt vaccines are safe! I posted 8 comments.

New York Business Journal

"The U.S. Department of Justice accused New Brunswick, N.J.-based Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) of promoting Risperdal, as well as the drugs Invega and Natrecor, for uses not approved as safe and effective by the Food and Drug Administration. It also charged the company with paying kickbacks to physicians to prescribe the drugs and to Omnicare Inc., the nation's largest pharmacy specializing in dispensing drugs to nursing home patients.

"The agreement, is the third-largest health care fraud settlements with a drugmaker in U.S. history, according to the Associated Press.

"'Every time pharmaceutical companies engage in this type of conduct, they corrupt medical decisions by health care providers, jeopardize the public health, and take money out of taxpayers' pockets,' Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement.

"The settlement also includes criminal fines and forfeiture totaling $485 million and civil settlements with the federal government and states totaling $1.72 billion.

"In addition, Janssen also allegedly promoted the antipsychotic drug for use in children and individuals with mental disabilities, to treat disorders ranging from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to autism, even though it had not been approved by the FDA for use in children for any purpose, prosecutors said. The government also alleged the company knew that the drug posed certain health risks to children, including the risk of elevated levels of prolactin, a hormone that can stimulate breast development and milk production. . . . "

My comment:

This scariest thing here, among lots of bad stuff, is that J&J says the resolution of the case 'allows us to move forward.'

Doing more of the same? How about a resolution to make safe products and not bribe doctors or engage in criminal activities?
 
The Stir
 
"Having a newborn can be stressful -- baby is learning how to live outside the womb while parents are learning how to keep baby alive and thriving. Add any issue into the mix, and it's even harder.
"Any parent of a baby who had to spend time in the NICU can tell you that it can be very challenging and worrisome. When baby is finally released, there is a sigh of relief, but now a new study has come along to give us another dose of fear. Children who have spent time in the NICU have a significantly higher chance of having autism spectrum disorder.

"I'm not sure what to make of this study as it seems that both everything and nothing causes autism."

I love this: "Both everything and nothing causes autism"

What a classic line!! (I wish I'd said that!)

My comment:

And the studies continue. Autism now affects one in every 50 children, one in 31 among boys alone, and health officials have no idea why. There are lots of guesses, most having to do with mothers making bad choices: older moms, fat moms, moms who take antidepressants, moms who drink, moms who smoke, moms who marry older dads, moms who don't get enough folic acid, moms who have bad antibodies or bad genes, moms who have lupus, and moms who live too close to highways. I could go on. It all boils down to the fact that money will be spent on any theory--as long as it doesn't involve VACCINES.

If they really wanted to produce worthwhile science, someone would conduct a simple study comparing the health outcomes of fully vaccinated and never vaccinated kids. With so many parents now too scared to vaccinate, the study group is out there. Officials conduct retrospective studies like this all the time, but they refuse to call for one that could settle the most heated controversy in pediatric medicine, DO VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM? We all should be asking why they won't do this.

Unless and until this study is done, the question remains open.

"We are absolutely convinced that VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM" and it will remain so, until the govt pays for an independent study comparing vac-unvac children, and proves otherwise."

In a perfect world this may be a safe statement. HOWEVER we have seen, over the decades, "government" IMO DELIBERATELY propagate and cover up autism. I would not trust "government" with my used gum wrappers.

Here is how they foisted the "flu shot" on six month old babies.

The "flu shot" was developed to prevent flu in the elderly who account for over 90% of flu mortality. I must say the "flu shot" has worked well in the elderly. Oh it has PROVEN to be totally ineffective at preventing or mitigating the flu BUT we now have an Alzheimer's epidemic and the real purpose of the "flu shot" was to advance the depopulation agenda.

"We have found that clinically normal individuals aged 60-65 who receive influenza vaccine three or four times during a five-year period, will five years later have an incidence of Alzheimer's disease 10-fold greater than age-matched individuals who did not receive it." Doctor H. Hugh Fudenburg, MD, Note and CDC cannot figure out where Alzheimer's is coming from. Right! 90% of our seniors are getting the "flu vaccine" toxin.

CDC Expanding the Flu Vaccine Market Between 2000-2010 by Doctor Mercola

"CDC does not know exactly how many people die from seasonal flu each year."46 Having gotten that cradle to the grave flu shot recommendation firmly in place, they are backing away from the 36,000 influenza death figure. CDC now says that "only 8.5 percent of all pneumonia and influenza deaths and only 2.1 percent of all respiratory and circulatory deaths" are influenza related.” Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

But that didn't stop CDC policymakers, along with drug company and medical trade association lobbyists ever present at the policymaking table, from using inflated influenza hospitalization and mortality estimates to justify expanding the influenza vaccine market:

NOTE: the "influenza deaths" Doctor Mercola references below are deaths due to viruses. Only about 10% of these deaths are due to influenza A and influenza B. This can be confirmed by serological testing, which is almost NEVER done.

In 2000, CDC policymakers voted to expand flu shot recommendations to all healthy Americans over age 50.35 Out of a population of 300 million, there were 1,765 recorded influenza deaths that year.

In 2002, CDC voted to add all healthy babies from six to 23 months.36 There were 727 recorded influenza deaths that year.

In 2006, CDC voted to recommend flu shots for all healthy children up to five years old as well as all healthy pregnant women in any trimester.37 There were 849 recorded influenza deaths that year.

In 2007, CDC voted to add all healthy children up to eight years old.38 There were 411 recorded influenza deaths that year.

In 2008, CDC voted to recommend annual flu shots for all healthy children up to age 18 years.39 There were 1,722 recorded influenza deaths that year.

In 2009, the Secretaries of Health and Homeland Security declared a national emergency because they said pandemic H1N1 swine flu was sweeping the country and tens of thousands of people could die. Liability free drug companies were told to rush an experimental swine flu vaccine to the market.40

In 2010, a year when there were 494 recorded influenza deaths, the CDC officials finally reached the ultimate goal of their long game: they told doctors to give annual flu shots to every American, healthy or not, from the year of birth to the year of death.41

And they got away with it.

"Today we have 29 students [up from one 20 years ago] in the district with the label of autism. National statistics suggest that 1 in 88 children are now identified as being on the autism spectrum."

The Autism epidemic is found in all countries that have allowed mass vaccinations. It is found nowhere else.

ALL children are at risk for ASD if they are "vaccinated". A child has very little risk of ASD if he is not "vaccinated". We do not need "science" or "authority" to tell us this is so. Simple observation demonstrates this. All our children need is the courage of OUR convictions.

"Authority" does not have to care for our autistic and ASD children, nor do they care for our "vaccine" damaged children.

No vac- You are like so-right. I think its high time we begin to get tough and even aggressive with these people who still think its ok to inject a baby with mercury. I would like to ask everyone to write in a simple question on vaccines, so that we could make a very simple questionaire to give to these arrogant idiots who tell us that vaccines are great and who surely know absolutely nothing about what is in them or the statistics regarding injury. For example: Ten simple questions followed by "Looks like you dont know much about vaccines and need to study further before declaring them safe and necessary"
I think the first question would be "What is the name of the mercury component found in some vaccines" What do you think , friends, How many doctors actually know the word Thimerosal?

Regarding infants in the NICU having a higher rate of autism- IF that is true, could it be due to the aluminium that is entering them from the IV's ? As I understand, the aluminium is a concern to neonatologists. Please correct me if I am wrong. It is well known that mercury is more toxic in the presence of Aluminum. And wouldnt a baby be more likely to be born prematurely if its mother has accepted the flu vaccine with mercury. Isn't premature birth one of the effects of mercury on pregnancy and what happens when you are a mom who eats tuna often and then you accept a mercury laden flu shot????? When it comes to autism, dont all road lead to mercury?

Introvert,
That article made me cry. That is the worst form of abuse imaginable. First, that type of sting operation - targeting, enticing and entrapping children, should be illegal. To even have to say that it should be illegal shows the sorry state of our society. Second, after paying this family a hefty fine, every single last person who had anything to do with this disgusting deceitful scam that involved the emotional torture of a child should go to prison - for a long time. In fact, what they did was so heinous that I doubt they could even be rehabilitated. They are a danger to society and should not be allowed anywhere near children.

Dana

If this study is accurate regarding the population at large (N= 110), the current rate of autism is 12%!!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-24837462.

Shockingly, the rate itself is not even mentioned in the article.

From Opposing Views:

"Amazingly, in 2013, doctors actually have to explain the scientific benefits of vaccinations to parents and push their case to get a baby or toddler vaccinated. . . .

There is absolutely nothing "amazing" about doctors explaining the scientific benefits of vaccinations .. but .. it would be "amazing" if doctors actually explained the inherent "risks" .. for every vaccine .. that are clearly written on every vaccine manufacturer's insert.

I would love to hear a doctor .. in 2013 .. explaining to parents why their newborn infant should receive a HEP B vaccine that supposedly protects that newborn against a disease that is primarily spread through promicuous, unprotected sexual activity or sharing of HEP B contaminated needles .. hardly the type of exposures to HEP B a newborn infant is likely to encounter in the first months of life.

More from Opposing views:

"There have been false rumors spread that vaccines can cause autism and other problems, which have been repeatedly debunked, reported The New York Times in 2011."

Unfortunately, "false rumors" are sometimes proven right over time .. even though the NY Times "repeatedly debunked them" .. such as .. the Affordable Care Act .. which promised everyone:

You can keep your present insurance if you want to .. PERIOD.

You can keep your doctor if you want to .. PERIOD.

Admittedly, at my advanced age .. I am a self-avowed cynic .. and .. the longer I live .. the more cynical I become.

Which is why I absolutely hate intoducing partisan "politics" into any discussion on AoA .. but .. in this instance .. the NY Times was extremely dismissive of the "false rumors" warning citizens they may not keep their insurance and doctors if the ACA passed .. have proven themselves to be true instead.

The article did not mention

1 Johnson and Johnson contributions to politicians

2 How many tens of billions of profits it made during the period where it was involved in criminal behaviour

3 who is going to jail

4 how will the victims be compensated

5 how much will the corrupt doctors have to pay in fines

Re J&J,
Imagine if the legal penalty for the crook who robbed your house and harmed your family was to give not the whole thing, but just a small percentage of the spoils back, not to you, but to the government, without any consideration whatsoever for your loss, pain or suffering. In so doing, the relieved crook says to the judge, "Now that this is over, I can move forward".

 no-vac

I think we should say: "We are absolutely convinced that VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM" and it will remain so, until the govt pays for an independent study comparing vac-unvac children, and proves otherwise. We know this, because we have seen it with our own eyes. They call it a conspiracy theory, so be it.
