Age of Autism Weekly Wrap: A Torrent of Leaks Reaches Flood Stage
Rob Schneider Demands Answers on CDC MMR Fraud

Vaccines Cause Autism

TraitorsBy Cathy Jameson

Vaccines cause autism.  Or, is it vaccines result in autism? 

You say tomato.  I say to-mah-to. 

Cause it.  Result in it.  Vaccines did it.  You know it.  I know it.  And now, come to find out, our government apparently knew it too.

For years now more than enough people have suggested that vaccines cause autism.  Several have tried to prove it.  Try as they might, those who should have acknowledged it have turned a blind eye.  Not only did they do that, but they adamantly defended themselves with skewed statistics.  News of these skewed statistics came from someone working at the CDC.  The CDC’s slogan is Saving Lives.  Protecting People.  After last week’s news I can’t help but ask whose lives were they trying to save?  Their own?  Whose lives were they protecting?  Themselves? 

Relying on paperwork instead of listening to those who’ve been negatively affected by vaccines has kept officials’ heads in the clouds.  Having their heads in the clouds gives them a free pass.  It looks like that free pass was used by several people.  According to the whistleblower, they didn’t factually report their findings.  They didn’t accurately inform the public.  They didn’t reveal dangers associated with vaccines.  They didn’t publicly state the truth.  That vaccines come with risks.  That they’re loaded with side effects.  That they don’t offer lifelong immunity.  And that they cause autism. 

Mind you that none of this information is new; it’s just kept so hush hush that unless you or a loved one has experienced a vaccine injury, it goes under the radar.  Only when vaccine injury hits close to home is one forced to go back, read the fine print and put two and two together.  Unfortunately, at that point, they’re left to fend for themselves.  When vaccines cause autism, a vaccine injured is left high and dry.  That’s because the vaccines industry is protected by the government, the same government that evidently knew that vaccines cause autism.  Rather than looking out for and protecting the ones they’re meant to serve, the vaccine industry and those who oversee it have chosen to protect each other. 

Fortunately, some people are taking a step away from the bureaucracy and toward the truth.  Surely taking that step came with risks, but isn’t honesty usually the best policy?  I’d like to think it is. 

CDC whistleblower breaks his silence after 13 years 

So what’s the next step?  Last week Thompson came clean.  Will the others follow suit?  Will the story be quickly buried like other vaccine stories are buried?  Or will what’s been revealed soon merit breaking news status across mainstream channels?  If it does, will the badgering of vaccine safety proponents and of parents who exercise their right to opt out of vaccines end?  And will the public finally realize that our government’s deafening silence forced many of us to become vocal about the vaccine-autism link?  I’m anxiously waiting to see what news, if any, will be shared and if any of those questions will be answered.

I’d like to believe that some good will come from this situation.  I’d like to think that the stories and links that blew up my newsfeed last week crossed over to mainstream channels.  I’d like to hope that my non-autism parent friends’ eyebrows raised as they saw the story flash across their newsfeeds too.  I’d like to believe that an in-depth investigation will occur and that the results will be shared far and wide so that more parents can be empowered with the truth.  

Knowing the truth is better than being placated with fabrications made by crooked officials.  Those fabrications need to stop.  So many people have been hurt in the name of science, science we’ve recently learned has been based on fraud.  Too many too soon and too little too late.  That sounds terrible, but it seems to be a more accurate theme for today’s vaccine program.  Our children deserve better.  We all do.

The US govenment knows that vaccines cause autism (behind a thin semantic veil). HHS HRSA officials told journalists Sharyl Attkisson and David Kirby on different occasions:

"The government has never compensated, nor has it ever been ordered to compensate, any case based on a determination that autism was actually caused by vaccines. We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures."

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-31727_162-20016356-10391695.html

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-f-kennedy-jr-and-david-kirby/vaccine-court-autism-deba_b_169673.html

And Julie Gerberding, when she was head of the CDC, and before she took the revolving door to Merck's vaccine division told CNN over the Poling case:

“Now, we all know that vaccines can occasionally cause fevers in kids. So if a child was immunized, got a fever, had other complications from the vaccines. And if you’re predisposed with the mitochondrial disorder, it can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptoms can be symptoms that have characteristics of autism."

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0803/29/hcsg.01.html

The mainstream media now have another strange disease: collective amnesia. It does not of course do to admit that not only do vaccines cause neurological impairment, including autism and epilepsy, but it can happen relatively often and the more you vaccinate unfortunately the more like it is. Dr Offit tells us that if we give an infant 10,000 vaccines in one go it is "theoretically" safe but of cours that is for a "theoretical" infant. But if you see what an infant gets mandated in the US in the first months of life it is becoming more like Atlanta roulette.

Rage

You need to show how autism is caused. Not using charts that could be easily fake or misleading. If you have any evidence on how the fuck autism is caused then I will rethink and be convinced. But now you show non of that. Also what's wrong with autism?

Hera

For Common S;
What happens after someone gets a traumatic brain injury ( for example, hit on the head)?

Well, according to this peer reviewed study

Neuropsychological Impairments and Changes in Emotional and Social Behaviour Following Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
Quote form the article

"Compared to matched healthy controls, the patients were impaired at recognising facial and vocal expressions of emotions, detecting social faux pas and nonverbal fluency"

Wow. So brain injury (at any age) can result in social behaviour problems, not understanding social mistakes, not being able to read or understand other peoples emotions..( sounds a lot like autism to me..) Who knew that damaging the brain after birth could result in symptoms of autism?
I wonder how many of these brain injured people now qualify for a diagnosis of autism?

Christopher Kidwell

With all due respect vaccines in connection with other medical issues cause autism. Do they cause autism in and of themselves in people with normal immune systems and no genetic disorders? Never.

That is the problem today however: The CDC is saying "In EVERYONE vaccines do not cause autism!"
That is a lie. It is a known lie.

We could avoid the vaccine related autism simply by screening people for certain genetic disorders known to cause vaccination when connected with autism but the CDC and big pharmaceuticals do not want to admit that because they want to deny ANY culpability period.

Vaccines are a net benefit to society however the thing to credit for the lesser amounts of mumps, measles, etc. is BETTER HYGIENE. We wash nearly everything and teach children to wash their hands with anti-microbial soap on a regular basis.

ATSC

Common S,

Autism can be acquired:

"Encephalitis from various kinds of viral infections, especially if it occurs in the early years of life, can also give rise to an autistic disorder" - Lorna Wing (The Autistic Spectrum A Guide for Parents and Professionals 1996 (p69))

And from the US National Library of Medicine (Medlineplus)

https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001415.htm

"Other causes of encephalitis may include an allergic reaction to vaccines"


Common sense tells us that when a child with normal development reacts badly to vaccines and afterwards he or she loses eye-contact, appears deaf, stops speaking and socialising even with family members that something has happened to his or her brain. This is not "symptoms just beginning to show up".

Common S.

I really don't understand how people still believe this. Autism is something you're born with, you either have it, or you don't. It is physically impossible for vaccines to cause autism since they happen after birth. Autism can't just be "acquired" from a vaccine. if a child is vaccinated and begins showing signs of autism, it is not because of the vaccines, the child had autism the whole time but the symptoms were just beginning to show up. The whole "vaccines cause autism" debate is just a way for parents to pin the blame on someone else because of what happened to their children. Honestly, I can't really blame them.

Susan George

It's possible that autism numbers are going up due to folate and Vitamin B levels in mothers that are too high. See this: https://www.consumeraffairs.com/news/high-folate-in-pregnancy-ups-autism-risk-study-finds-051316.html

Joey

I don't have time to read every comment, but I was wondering for those who believe vaccines cause autism, why do you believe this is so? Where did you get this belief? Anything helps since I am doing a paper on this right now. Thanks for the information if you give me any!

Amanda

Vaccines do cause Autism, the studies were manipulated by certain scientists whom attempted to cover it up. Fact is, vaccines do more harm than good.

Hera

Hi ATSC,
Sorry, I should have read more carefully and realized you were responding to Maria Aja.
I think you are right, and most people have no idea that vaccines aren't actually safe for everyone, particularly with that "as safe as vitamins" comment..

ATSC

Hera, There seems to be some misunderstanding as to my position on vaccine safety, likely due to the formatting of my message to Maria Aja.

Maria wrote: "....vaccines have never claimed to be safe" and I was pointing out how mistaken she was by posting the link to the California Immunization Coalition and quoting from their section on vaccine safety: "the AAP, IOM and WHO agree that vaccines are even safer than vitamins", and added, "Please do some reading and you will discover that other statements you've made are equally as false".

Hera

Hi ATSC, J.Denton,
Perhaps it would be helpful to start with the GOVERNMENTS own vaccine injury table ;
http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/vaccineinjurytable.pdf

ATSC, if the government admits that in some cases death and encephalopathy ( brain damage) are known risks, and is willing to compensate for these "side effects" when they occur, then perhaps you and I have different definitions of "safe".

JC Denton

Do you have a single fact to back that up?

ATSC

Maria Aja,

"....vaccines have never claimed to be safe".

Really?

Read the words of the California Immunization Coalition:

http://www.whyichoose.org/vaccinesafety.html

"Are Vaccine Safe?

Yes. Vaccines are safe. In fact, experts including American Academy of Pediatrics, the Institute of Medicine, and the World Health Organization agree that vaccines are even safer than vitamins."

Please do some reading and you will discover that other statements you've made are equally as false.

María Aja

I'm sorry that many of you on this site have seen children injured by vaccines. However, vaccines have never claimed to be safe. Sadly, there us a chance of being injured by a vaccine. The risk is very low, with less than 1% of vaccinated persons reporting serious injury. This data can be found on the CDC's website. The government admits that vaccines are not safe for all children, with immunocompromised kids unable to be vaccinated. Another thing to consider is that children less than 1 year old, usually between 2 and 6 months of age, are most likely to begin being vaccinated. At this age, infants are at greatest risk for certain medical adverse events, including high fevers, seizures, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Some infants will experience these medical events shortly after a vaccination by coincidence. This data is pulled from the VAERS website, a government site that allows people to report adverse effects caused by vaccines. The government does not ignore those affected, and the data is easily available. Vaccines are promoted because they have been proven to reduce the chance of coming down with a possibly deadly disease. The chances of being injured by a vaccine is low and worth it when you consider the thousands of children that die of preventable diseases in countries lacking access to vaccines.Vaccines have saved countless lives, and should not be feared. Smallpox was not eliminated by a cleaner world. Vaccines did their job to eradicate the awful disease. Vaccines are not the cause of autism or other developmental disorders. Coincidence and timing of vaccine injections to when most disorders are noticed has caused a lot of unnecessary fear.

,......

where is your evidence??

Hera

Hi Kohl,
In the comments below there is a link to over a hundred peer reviewed journal articles suggesting a link between vaccination and autism.

You also ask why "everybody" doesn't get autism from vaccines.

That applies to almost every reaction and disease.
Can you explain why a peanut allergy can kill some people yet I can eat peanuts?
According to your logic, peanuts can't cause an allergic reaction, or everyone would react to peanuts.
What about people with life threatening reactions to strawberries ,or shellfish, or those who get sick from wheat (celiacs?)
Can you eat these things?
If so, does that mean that all these people (and their doctors) are lying?
Does that mean the people who died from allergic reactions to these things did not really die?
Do you tell these people that you can eat peanuts, so everyone who says they react badly to them is wrong?

Or do you think it is possible that some people can react differently than other people ?

Actually even the manufacturers have acknowledged that some people will be injured or die from vaccines.
In fact that is the reason we have the federal governments vaccine court. It was developed to give compensation to people who died or had lifelong injuries from vaccines.

It is called VAERS. You can google it.
Is all autism caused by vaccines? No, about 6% of autism is genetic ( fragile X etc).

But autism rates have increased from 1 in 10 000 to 1 in 68. According to the National Autism Association, about 40% of people with autism do not speak. Ever.( though some "regress" and loose the ability to speak that they were developing as young infants.)

Do you really think that doctors and parents in the 70's never noticed that their children weren't able to speak? they just said "Johnny is doing just fine" , and sent him off to school, where the teacher did not notice anything either?

It seems very unlikely, doesn't it, and we are talking huge numbers of people that couldn't ever talk, even as adults yet who no one noticed existed.


Kohl

Vaxcined dont cause autism the ride of autism at the same time as vaxcines is become ALL medical science advanced at that time including the DETECTION of autism bought not the cause and if there was something that outright causes autism first why would your doctor's the ones trying to keep you healthy give you come thing that could make you soo sick aND second if it alone CAUSES autism than why doesn't every human who ever got vaxinated have autism and show me one peace of TRUE and pruveable evedence or a REPEATABLE experiment than Mable I will beleve you and here proffered you'll understand https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nDjz5qHIzsc

VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM

I have been saying that just like the above for about 7 years now on all my post here at AOA. Funny how those three little words can cause so much angst isn't it?

I never thought AOA would ever get around to posting it just like that actually as I never thought you guys had the courage to print that truth, glad you came around though.

A lot has happened since I have been here regularly, I figured out how it works with autism and how it happens now I just got to work backwards to fix it. It really is quite simple and been there in front of your face the whole time as I knew it would be. I will not boar you with the details until I can fix it because I do not want to end up like Dr. Bradstreet not that I would go that quietly.

In any case glad everyone is on board. The usual suspects will oppose as always as they troll for these types of opportunities as it is their job and it is what they are paid to do and that will come out as well. The term is "coconspirator" or "accomplice liability" and since they accepted money to blog for Pharma their fate is sealed under the Pinkerton doctrine and I am sure Droit is aware.

In any case one day we will wake up and this will all be a bad dream that ends positively for our children and us.


VACCICES CAUSE AUTISM

John Stone

Hera

I am sure that Andre Lee thinks - if he exists - that it is simply better to sweep all deaths and injury under the carpet for the greater good. It is a new definition of truth.

Hera

Andre Lee;
you state
If you really wanted your child to live, you'd vaccinate

When I hear statements like that , I just wonder
What do you say to parents whose children died from a vaccine, after you make statements like that?

You do know that children have died from vaccines?

https://hopefromholly.wordpress.com/

Hera

Hi Andre Lee,
I am glad you have some familiarity with the idea of peer reviewed journal articles. That's a plus.

So, for you,

http://www.scribd.com/doc/220807175/122-Research-Papers-Supporting-the-Vaccine-Autism-Link

122 peer reviewed research papers supporting the vaccine autism link..
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts when you have read at least some of them.

By the way, just to help you a little
MMR ( the vaccine mentioned in the Wakefield paper) never contained thimerosal.

Basic vaccine theory 101
Some vaccines contain weakened live virus, like the MMR.
A live virus vaccine cannot contain thimerosal, because the mercury preservative would kill the virus.

( You probably should at least get a handle on that one if you want to become informed about the topic of vaccine injury...)

So ; MMR is associated with encephalopathy ( brain inflammation causing brain damage.)

Thimerosal, in other vaccines such as the multi vial flu shot,is associated with reactions in those who cannot metabolise mercury properly.

So, for those who are vaccine injured; these different products can cause similar disabilities using different pathways.

BY the way; have you looked up the different effects of mercury depending on route of entry yet? You seem interested and capable of doing and reading the research.

And I am guessing you know how to look up the MSDS on Thimerosal?

What happens when you combine thimerosal with aluminium?

Just for fun, one more..
People with what genetic mutations are most likely to react to the Smallpox vaccine? What types of transport systems in the body does that mutation effect?

Interested to read your response when you have researched these topics a bit more.

All the best
Hera.

Andre Lee

The lack of facts in this article is so disturbing... I don't see a single source anywhere. In fact, I believe the only source was a comment containing a link to a 480p low quality youtube video. Not a credible source.
I'll focus on what appears to be the headline of this website - mercury is in vaccines.
Again, ignoring the fact there is no evidence (that one paper that was immediately disproven as fraudulent and a scheme to promote alternative methods of disease prevention... you know what I'm talking about. I'm not linking it because if you don't know what it is, you don't need to), vaccines contain thimerosal. Thimerosal is a form of mercury, specifically ethylmercury. The CDC does actually inform us thimerosal is in vaccines, here. http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/thimerosal/
I'm assuming that since this website still receives comments everybody conveniently ignores that in 1999 the CDC and FDA decided to reduce the content of thimerosal in vaccines. In 1999, 6 vaccines out of 31 administered regularly to children under 6 contained ethylmercury: http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/SafetyAvailability/VaccineSafety/UCM096228
Since then, only 2 still contain thimerosal.

Even then, we know thimerosal DOES NOT HARM THE BODY.
http://go.galegroup.com/ps/retrieve.do?sort=DA-SORT&docType=Article&tabID=T003&prodId=GPS&searchId=R1&resultListType=RESULT_LIST&searchType=BasicSearchForm&contentSegment=&currentPosition=1&searchResultsType=SingleTab&inPS=true&userGroupName=carmelhs&docId=GALE%7CA223908626&contentSet=GALE%7CA223908626
First of all, that is what a real source looks like. Second of all, here is the first sentence in case you don't want to read:

Three judges ruled March 12 in three separate cases that thimerosal, a preservative containing mercury that has been used in some vaccines, does not cause autism, the "New York Times" reported.

I'd like to quote another line from the source:

"A normal fish-eating diet by pregnant mothers" is more likely to deposit mercury in the brain than vaccines are, she wrote.

Literally, you are more likely to "cause autism" in your child by eating tuna or sushi than you are with a vaccine. Again, we are assuming ethylmercury causes autism (which, again, it does not).

Another comment I've seen: "but what about the increased rates of autism? Clearly the government is to blame, what with their vaccines trying to kill us!"

Here's a scientific journal:
http://go.galegroup.com/ps/retrieve.do?sort=DA-SORT&docType=Brief+article%2C+Report&tabID=T002&prodId=GPS&searchId=R2&resultListType=RESULT_LIST&searchType=BasicSearchForm&contentSegment=&currentPosition=4&searchResultsType=SingleTab&inPS=true&userGroupName=carmelhs&docId=GALE%7CA179080831&contentSet=GALE%7CA179080831

In case you are too lazy to read once again:

But a recent investigation of data collected in California suggests that the elimination of thimerosal has not lowered the autism rate, which increased steadily throughout the study period (1995 to 2007).

There is zero connection of thimerosal (50% ethylmercury) to autism. You are putting your child in more danger by leaving them vulnerable to polio, measles, and other life-threatening diseases which by the way, have killed far more people than autism. If you really wanted your child to live, you'd vaccinate. Here's a link to a pretty picture showing you measles deaths (on the decline, mind you):

http://go.galegroup.com/ps/retrieve.do?sort=RELEVANCE&docType=Diagram&tabID=Images&prodId=GPS&searchId=R5&resultListType=RESULT_LIST&searchType=BasicSearchForm&contentSegment=&currentPosition=1&searchResultsType=SingleTab&inPS=true&userGroupName=carmelhs&docId=GALE%7CCT3294261211&contentSet=GALE%7CCT3294261211&source=TextResults

Pretty sure I've said something like this before, but that comment got moderated (great job looking objectively at an argument).

Agent Pom-Pom

I've just lost my faith in humanity. Vaccines do NOT cause autism, it is simply that some vaccines are given to children at around the time when the "symptoms," I suppose one would call them, begin to show. Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder. It is not a sickness or a disease obtained through substances entering the body. A person with autism is BORN WITH autism, but only starts to show signs of autism around age three, near the time when many vaccines are administered to the child. My family, for example, has never had someone with autism, even though we have all received vaccines at around the designated times. Furthermore, autism, in some cases, may be caused by the environment in which a fetus develops- for example, if the mother is smoking (nicotine) or ingesting drugs (includes alcohol) somehow. These links are not concrete, but to the point- AUTISM IS NOT CAUSED BY ANY CAUSE AFTER THE SUBJECT'S BIRTH. THIS INCLUDES VACCINES.

Hera

Good suggestions Linda1.

And David, if you can stomach it, you might want to follow up with this youtube video. 6 minutes of your time, and you don't even have to watch the whole thing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iu7C5clA4q0

This is the autism that is not like yours.

But I am very glad that your life is going really well and is happy; that is wonderful news.

If you feel a bit embarrassed after realizing what severe autism looks like, don't worry; lots of people aren't aware either.
Wishing you all the best
Hera

Linda1

David,
In the left margin of this blog there is a video showing a brother and sister in black and white entitled, "Autism Public Service Announcement". Click on it.

Then click on the third video below it "A Glimpse into Autism".

David

your choices are a slightly higher chance for your to get relatively minor developmental disorder or a much higher chance at your child dying. why is this even an argument? seriously, it's not like autism is a life threatening illness, i have autism and i am able to (at least mostly) live a completely normal life. seriously, autism isn't as big of a problem as you think it is.

Benedetta

Karelyn; Do you really - really want to go there? Really? Let us talk about the increase across the board - of mental illness - and mental retardation. Yeah, let us do that.

Benedetta

Robert Vandion:

Tom Insel head of the NIMH said that the worse out come of disease was mental retardation He did not say death.

He then went on to say - that vaccines had not taken care of that worse outcome - mental retardation.

What he did not say was -- under the ever growing number of vaccines mental retardation has actually increased. Nope not in that speech -- but in his TED Talk that you can find on U tube -- He does quote a bunch of stats on the ever increasing problems with mental health. It is increasing he says.

but let us not stop there -- auto immune diseases are increasing too - and that includes diabetes and thyroid.


Benedetta

The last post was for Tired of the Lies.

This one is for Teri Newberry; Thank You so much for your compassion and kindness and caring.

Benedetta

Autism - causes by an immune system running on the hot side called inflammation.

Damaging nerves, and blood vessels and organs - oh, and the brain too- and I suppose this dividing brain nerve thingy too perhaps --

I don't know what I am tired of, I suppose the lies too but not at the top of the list, maybe deceit that is different than lies --then there is stupidity.

Oh, at the top of the list would be when I am called a liar. Yeah something about me witnessing my son, daughter, husband receive a vaccine - spike a temperature have a seizure, or stroke, or the belly bloat and I have some little - troll come on here and tell me what it is not.

Yeah = that is the top of the list.

Hera

tired of the lies;
My son has Agenesis of the corpus callosum. Its a very rare disorder, that does sometimes have some of the symptoms of autism.
The rate of agnesis of the corpus callosum in the general population: about 1 in 4000
Rate of autism : 1 in 68

Are you seeing why your theory that all cases of autism are caused by agenesis of the corpus callosum is wrong?
You can look up both sets of figures for yourself.

By the way, kids with ACC are born that way. They don't ever "regress" they just slowly add skills.. Some kids with autism lose skills ( like the ability to speak) immediately after their brain gets damaged by a vaccine reaction. These reactions can be things like fevers of 105, constant screams, encephalopathy and seizures.

If you are like my son and have ACC my heart goes out to you.( And I pray that he may one day be able to write like you can.)But you may need to realize that only a tiny subset of people who have been diagnosed with the symptoms of "autism" are missing the corpus callosum.
Hope this helps
Hera

Managing Editor

If you're so sure, use your name, for crying out loud.

Tired of Lies

It's impossible for vaccines to cause autism. Period. Autism is due to a degraded or non-existent corpus callosum. The corpus callosum is the nerve highway in the brain that connects the two hemispheres of the brain. The corpus callosum grows during fetal development. So there's no way a vaccine, given much later in life, after the development of the corpus callosum, could cause it.

What agents in a vaccine could target only the nerve cells in the corpus callosum, composed of the same cells and material as all other nerves, leaving all other nerves intact? Nothing.

So, autism is due to a degraded or missing corpus callosum that develops with the growing fetus. No compounds, chemicals, or whatever has ever been identified in vaccines that could only affect specific nerve cells while ignoring others -- they're all made from the same.

dolan

this article and these toxic comments are the reson autisim exists (and mabey crystal meth)

Loreala

It's absurd, that obsessed, pharma puppet Dorit Reiss is STILL defending Gardasil,and claiming it is safe (LOL) Can you believe the nerve? After all those deaths and disablements. All those poor teenage girls now living out a miserable life sentence. It begs belief. She and her cohorts has absolutely no conscience. Blood on hands.

Diana

fact: the incidence of Autism years ago was so low that it was unheard of in my part of the world. Now there is an explosion of it and parents are desperate for answers.

What changed?

Vaccine protocol - we only received a few core vaccines
Diet - too many ingested chemicals nowadays, including in water.

I believe it's a combination of these factors that trigger Autism.

Hera

Hi Anni; Just my opinion here..Autism is diagnosed on a series of symptoms. Social issues, poor language development etc etc.
A headache is also a symptom. The symptom "headache" can have multiple causes. You could have a brain tumor, have hit your head, or get migraine headaches from the wrong types of food.
Similarly, autism is diagnosed only by symptoms.
According to a variety of studies, you can get these types of symptoms from
being born with fragile X ( a genetic disorder that is never routinely tested for)
Having agenesis of the corpus callosum ( a fancy way of saying missing part of the brain)
Having brain damage. ( If someone gets a bad enough head injury, they can show symptoms of autism..)
Being injected with a vaccine and getting encephalitis ( Hannah Poling was declared to have symptoms of autism by the federal government after her vaccine injury)
Hope this is helpful to you.

Stephanie

Curious as to what evidence you have that makes you think the CDC skews their statistics? Pretty bold statement.

Anni

Just one question that may have already been answered - but if vaccines DO in fact cause autism then what about those people who have developed autism and were never vaccinated?

barbaraj

Before the anti science people had their pockets loaded with funding from god knows who..cdc? pharmaceuticals? to distort the truth and vilify scientists who dared take on biological studies..and the effort to supplant them with head counts and manipulated stats was put into place..before google and even facebook were censored the material facts concerning thimerosal were available.Grab your youtube while you can..pubmed has printed an article where they are trying to figure out how to censor youtube..take a look at how ethymercury will leave more inorganic mercury within the brain to do far more damage than methyl..we are talking decades of damage..to omit is to lie..and all media and several journals were on someone's payroll ...clearly that's what they've done..and that's what liam and others believe.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R17-kWmv0rg

Jordan - William Thompson cdc chief scientist for 10 or 20years & now whistleblower, says in fact Vaccines DO CAUSE AUTISM >

Put that in your Crack pipe and smoke it .

For Jordan

This is of course and example of the infantilism and stupidity we are up against. Anyone wants to follow the link (which is presently broken) will come to a page with the words in large letters 'THEY F-CKING DON'T'. So much for civilised, rational discourse!

PS Jordan, we have seen it before.

Jordan

Here is further proof that vaccines cause autism:
howdovaccinescauseautism. com/

Hera

Liam, I appreciate your effort to be civil.
Your facts are incorrect.
The CDC who is in charge of giving vaccines states on its website that the multidose flu vaccine still contains thimerosal.
It appears they did not get your message that it was all removed years ago.
Thimerosal is toxic; look up the Material Safety Data Sheet on the web. Are you aware that in 1977 ten babies in a Toronto hospital died when an antiseptic containing thimerosal ( the mercury in vaccines) was mistakenly dabbed on their umbilical cord sites.
By the way, our digestive systems handle mercury better than when we inject it. Eating and injecting is not the same. If you think about it, you can drink apple juice. But do you think injecting it would necessarily be safe?
You have told us "stories" about children who caught a disease and blamed unvaccinated children.. You have told us that stories don't count, and Sasha has told us that good parents who love their children shouldn't blame others if their children get injured, (or sick, I assume) they should just get to work helping them. Bit of a double standard there, perhaps? Or are these also "bad parents looking for something to blame?"
I'm glad you came here, there is a lot for you to read and learn.
all the best,

So Liam and Sasha knows all the details of my son's vaccine injury?

What seers!

So they know all the details of my husband's vaccine injuries and know for a fact that we are mistaken and want some one to blame. How are they so all knowing and still just mere mortals?

So they know all about every detail of my daughter's life.

So they know what I witnessed and saw?

They know all about how I looked into my son's eyes as the pupils grew larger and larger and larger till I almost felt like I was falling into those black pits - as he starred straight ahead and did not respond - That I thought he had died in my arms from a third vaccine reaction. Only according to Sasha and Liam it was not really a vaccine reaction I was witnessing - just so happened strange things happened all three times I vaccinated him -- yeah at two months spiked temp; heart murmur; swollen heart, then again at four months with a spiked temperature, passing out an gasping for air, and then skipping over the six month one till he was almost 10 months before I did the third booster of DPT. Strange how all these strange reactions just waited untill the very day he received his vaccine.

Now tell me Liam and Sasha - what is it exactly that I witnessed and why? I am all ears........

Angus Files

Good evening Liam don’t take us the wrong way or think we are trying to insult your intelligence either .You see on here at AOA most of us report as parents of vaccine damaged children from all corners of the world ,and we all have the same similar stories to tell. Our babies vaccinated with a vaccine, and straight after a catastrophic change ,high temps, red rash, encephalitis, green puss coming from the ears, high pitched scream this is straight after the vaccine has been administered some babies die. The “lucky “ones survive and mostly need 24 hour care for the duration of life ,life at a level which you cannot even imagine. For the record we were all pro-vaccine at one time, if we weren’t our poor babies wouldn’t have got in this situation in the first place and I for sure wouldn’t be hanging over a computer typing to you at close on midnight (I’m anti vaccine and proud of it just in case you haven’t guessed).
Whatever planet you come from to us humans on earth Mercury is toxic in any form whether it be ethyl mercury, methylmercury or breathing it from you amalgam fillings ,you’re a dead man walking if you start taking it in any size or form. On plant Liam you can eat it abundantly brilliant…. The funny thing is (ha ha),is that the main studies that say vaccines don’t cause Autism were falsified and this has been admitted to by whistle blower William Thompson of the CDC to whom we are eternally grateful. Just scroll on here and you can see how the news unfolded.Again hundreds of studies prove vaccines cause Autism ,hundreds.

All of you people claim that vaccines cause autism, even criticizing the test results and evidence against the claim. Even the original test that claimed that vaccines cause autism was disproven after errors were found in the method of the test. Yet still people want to believe something that was disproven years and years ago because it is all they could think of.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to insult you or people in your life that may have autism, I'm just stating the fact that the source in your claim is very wrong. Firstly I want to say that many people think that vaccines contain mercury, and correct them, because they no longer do, and when they did decades ago, it was non-toxic compound of mercury. In fact mercury itself isn't even very dangerous, just toxic compunds like Dimethylmercury and Metyhlmercury. In fact mercury is in food like sword fish and sushi, that's why you cannot eat too much but small amounts, like in the 20th century vaccines which contained non-toxic mercury compounds. Think of it like chlorine and sodium, both are deadly, but together they are safe and we need them to survive. Now back to just vaccines, as I was saying there hasn't been any reliable evidence towards your claim. There are many stories where children who aren't vaccinated cause extreme sickness in other vaccinated children, who even though were vaccinated couldn't be protected against ignorant dismissive people. Vaccines in order to stop diseases need everyone's cooperation, if you aren't going to vaccinate your children, keep them out of public schools until they are vaccinated. That is for the safety of others, which by not vaccinating your children you are destroying.

For Sasha

Hi Sasha

You might to look here and see how many vaccines and infant has had by 6 months

http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents/downloads/parent-ver-sch-0-6yrs.pdf

Sasha

I'm sorry if your kid has autism but blaming a vaccine is crazy. Science has proven when they did they study they only used autistic kids so they didn't have a control group. You can't say well almost all the kids here have autism so since they all had shots that has to be the reason. There are tons of kids that have nothing wrong with them that have been vaccinated. My friends son has autism and you could tell when he was like 6 months old that something wasn't right. He had a blank stare he wouldn't look at you in the eyes he didn't respond when you would say his name. His mom just got him help. She never spent time blaming a shot or a doctor or anyone. I wish more people were like her.

Jeannette Bishop

To "You are..."

Are you advising we trust a group that is essentially enthusiastically pedaling their shining new bicycle (vaccine schedule) on a "liability free" slope, upgraded every few years with more gadgets and gizmos and shiny dangling in-their-eyes boondoggles, who frequently turn to look behind them and shout, "Look, Mom! No hands (control group)!?! and has no idea why we have so many injured children in the whereabouts of the side walk or where it looks (to us at least) like they are headed? At this point I think the feet are coming off the pedals, the speed governed now more by the slippery slope than the pedaling, and I'm not sure any amount of breaking can prevent a full-stop crash.

No one here went to the internet and said, "I like this narrative about what I'm seeing and hearing in regards to what's going on with my child. Yes! Vaccine injury! Environmental injury! That's the ticket. I'm going to latch onto this!"

To the contrary it is about as unappealing a narrative as it is to those who are desperately pedaling blind, maybe more--I can't tell you what it was like to start waking up to the concept of vaccine/immune system injury even though (or maybe because) I'd been living in a family probably burdened with various degrees of it for generations.

We, I, to a great extent chose the environment, including the vaccines (though the system is revealing quite clearly with a country wide legislative push that vaccination was never intended to be voluntary on the part of some)?!? I chose, through little investigation on my part, to subject my child to more of what I'd hoped I could protect her from! And I did it with the help/pressure of many trusted institutions, also apparently not cognizant of how compromised the information they were promoting was (or maybe just plain prepared to be self-serving, even at the expense of the health tiny, vulnerable infants).

It's a pretty sucky, uncomfortable view of how fallible, blind (or corrupt) human institutions can be. Why would anyone "choose" to see things this way, if there wasn't anything to it, if this wasn't the view necessary to scrutinize to uncover real remedy and healing?

Managing Editor

We've allowed the negative comments because they say far more about the commenters than the topic of vaccine injury. The lack of empathy. The vitriole. The screen names. Sometimes we delete this type of comment, sometimes we run them if only to show the nastiness.

cia parker

Why are there several insulting comments by trolls at the top of this article from last year? I just read comments by two new, obscene shills on the hot site of the moment. Is this a new offensive to flood the airways with their bilge?

You are an idiot

You guys are idiots, trust the majority of the doctors who say that these vaccines do not cause autism. With the internet ignorance is a choice, and idiots like you are still choosing ignorance.

Zack Walker

Every other comment is all "I know from PERSONAL EXPERIENCE that vaccines cause autism. my son blah blah blah after getting a vaccine so that means that it was definitely the vaccine because logic. Don't trust the government mannn." Seriously? How ignorant are you people? Do you just sit at home and watch Fox News or MSNBC all day? what makes you think you are so special that just because something happens to you or a relative means its absolutely 100% objective fact? Please try to explain so my ignorant brain can comprehend your genius.

Hi Christine

Well, you are certainly on message. I don't know whether you have ever read George Orwell's Animal Farm where the pigs train the other animals to chant "Four legs good, two legs bad", but I think we can take your contribution to this serious issue in a rather similar light.

christine Williams

WHY ARE YOU POEPLE LISTENING TO STUPID JENNY MCCARTHY, SHE DOESN'T KNOW ANYTHING. yOU ARE ALL JUST CONSUMED FOR HER APPERANCE ON T.V AND NOT THE FACT THAT SHE IS TRYING TO GO OFF OF KNOWLEGDE WE ALL KNOW. sYMPTONS FOR AUTISM ALWAYS DEVOLPE AT THE AGE VACCINES ARE GIVE OUT. DUH!!!

Who is William Thompson ?

Thanks Megan for your great insight .
However Julie Gerberding , head of Merck's vaccine division and former head of the CDC , has admitted vaccines can cause autism .
The former head of the NIH Bernadine Healey RIP conceded the case that vaccines are the cause of autism , is very much a possibility .
And the CDC Whistleblower William Thompson has admitted the CDC had information in 2003 proving a link between vaccines and autism and they CONCEALED it .
And the evidence really does go on and on . Vaccines are a criminal affair .

Kevin Linkletter - a word of advice - recreational drugs are never a good idea .
Anyway just for the record . The rate of Autism is running at something like 1 in 50 (perhaps greater) .
1 in 10000 was a 30 year old statistic .
South Korea returned a rate of 1 in 36 a couple of years ago .
The Somalian diasporo in various centres around the world is recording an Autism rate of 1 in 8 .
And the Ugandan population of North Germany is rumoured to be recording an Autism rate of 1 in 6.
According to the MIT scientist Dr Stephanie Seneff , the projected rate for US children by 2025 will be 1 in 2 (50%).

This is NOT genetic , this is not inherited , this is envornment , THIS IS VACCINE .

For Megan

And you can put fingers in your ears and go "lalala" but the trouble is that your pediatrician and your government are not interested in medical injuries from the recommended schedule. The only means for getting such an injury recognised is years of uphill litigation. Sensible people would do well to listen to the risks, and there are risks.

megan

The reason there is any connection between autism and vaccinations is that children developmentally begin to show signs of autism at their same age that many vaccinations are given. its pure coincidence, and if anyone did their own research other than listening to everyone in their mommy and me group, this would be widely known.

Linda Lee

Anyone that has a child with Autism knows the difference between the diagnosis of Autism and Mental Retardation. Why is it that Autism usually does not show itself until after a child is 18 months? Which is after they have been immunized? If I had it all to do over again, I would not have had my son immunized until he was older. Maybe things would be different today.

Kevin Linkletter

I have yet to see any valid statistics other than here say. So let's just for arguments sake accept that a measles vaccination might result in autism in let's say 1 in 10,000 children. Let's also accept that measles results in permanent brain damage or death in 2 in 10,000 cases. It would still be a no brainer.

Candace Gill

No one in the history of my family or my daughters husbands family has ever been diagnosed with Autism. My grandson received his first vaccines and he was different afterward. Wouldn't let anyone who didn't look like me or my daughter even touch him. A seemingly outgoimg , happy baby had become an introvert. I don't care what anyone ever says. After he received those vaccines the difference in him was night and day. There were no environmental changes. No chemical changes (I.e. laundry detergent or cleaning supplies) for the most part my daughter stays at home. She has chosen not to vaccinate her 2nd child either and he appears to be just fine. If it doesn't run in our family & there are no other environmental factors... Tell me what else could have caused my grandson to acquire Autism.

Jocelyn

Wow, people are still citing "Dr" Wakefield as a credible source? If you're quoting him as backup to your anti-vax stance, then you obviously haven't done enough research to make an informed decision. Wakefield was proven to be a crock and a liar several years ago. He wasn't even a real doctor and he admitted that his "study" on the autism-vaccination link was fake. Wake up, people. Vaccines do not cause autism. People think they do because symptoms of autism show up around the same time that children get a lot of their vaccines. There is no "autism epidemic". Autism has been around forever. You just recently started hearing about it because its finally being diagnosed correctly. Doctors used to diagnose autistic children with mental retardation. As a result of correct diagnosis, cases of mental retardation have drastically declined, just as cases of autism have skyrocketed. Why? Because what used to be called mental retardation is now called autism. Do your research. Don't rely on Google and hearsay. Don't let your child contract a disease that is easily preventable. Save lives. Vaccinate.

Katie

VACCINES DO NOT CAUSE AUTISM YOU ARE BORN WITH AUTISM. I HAVE AUTISM IT IS INHERITED MY MOM HAD IT. THIS IS NOT TRUE. YOU PEOPLE ARE LYING. TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY HAVE AUTISM THEY WILL ALL SAY IT DOES NOT YOU ARE BORN WITH IT

Peter

RE; Jenny Allan, Thank u 4 your comment/reply.

First of all, I am very sorry that your grandson digressed into autism; and in my opinion, that could have been prevented; but as i said before, I feel very sorry for parents that have to make that decision on vaccinations because apparently measles are dangerous and so is the vaccinations; and so what are parents suppose to do?.

In regard to a book, that was never my intention. I simply though of a potential cause of mental illness in children and wanted officials to investigate or research it; and I have tried papers and books in that regard only; although books and scientific paper were never my intention. So, now I am trying another approach to get what I wanted in the first place; and that is why I commented on this website because I thought it was a good place to give my opinions but I did not want to simply come out and say what was on my mind because people usually ignore things unless you can bring them to the same conclusion little by little; and so I thought that by given some of the history on autism, and some of the questions, that I could at least get them to listen to my opinion; but I got no responses. Nevertheless, I do not want anyone to make any decision based on what I say because I am not a researcher. I have no qualification to do so. I basely have opinions like anyone else.

So, all that I am saying is that officials should research hallucination distortions because maybe that is what causes all mind and or brain (distortion) disorders in children. Maybe, brain and mind development is very sensitive and maybe it is even a program that is distorted; and thus cause distortion illnesses; and maybe, autism is a distortion illness. In my opinion, the measles vaccine somehow stimulates the brain to cause a hallucination of one, two or many or all of the images in the child’s brain, and thus that maybe causes ASD; but I am not researcher and I am not a doctor; and I do not want anyone to make any decision, particularly a medical one, based on anything that I say. Please consider this as some sort of declaimer that releases me from any damage that may result because of my opinion.

There you have it; the thing that I have been trying to get officials to act on for the past year or so. Since your comment, I have been thinking that maybe I should contact the autism society, maybe meet with them; and ask them to call for a research proposal (sort of a tender)to investigate the possibility of the distorting type of hallucination causing autism and maybe even all atypical mind disorder in children, maybe also along with the possibility of the MMR vaccine causing autism by somehow causing hallucinations; I know that inflammation of the brain has been documented and maybe that could have caused Autismor an hallucination that caused Autism) and i think that they will find that the MMR vaccination indeed can cause hallucinations; and in that regard; you may not recognize a hallucination in children before they get autism because it may cause the condition immediately, that is if indeed it causes the condition at all; and we may not even know the symptoms in young children because indeed it would be different than in adults because, in my opinion, you can only hallucination by what you previous seen except in simple hallucinations such as maybe moving images that do not really move before the concept of movement is developed; and maybe a better example would be distort the size such as instead of a uniform size, the images has various sizes, etc. But once again; I must say that I am going by my opinions only and that I may be wrong; and the whole concept of hallucinations causing problems in children may also be wrong; but I don’t think so. They must do something and it cannot be good; and if they do anything, then it must give some problem and then that come first; and then the genetic changes or modifications must come second; and that is in compliance I think with evolution maybe; and also is just my opinion and therefore also it may be wrong’ but basically I just wanted to get it out there to the public to do as they see fit without upsetting the apple cart.

So, once again thank you and thank you for bringing out ‘the cause of autism and other mind distortion illnesses in children according to Peter”; who may be wrong, and take care of that wonderful grandson; and I agree with you and everybody else, the MMR is the main cause of autism and as a fellow says below, but there are probably other causes and basically anything that causes hallucinations, I think would do it but when it occurs after the MMR, then obvious the MMR causes it, like I say, probably by causing a hallucination; and we know that seizures are common; and whether that can be confused with hallucinations, I do not know; but I would think that they both involve increased neurotransmitters; and I know and seizures were once associated with certain deficiencies, I believe calcium but I am unsure and they generally did no harm or at least in most cases, although they are also associated with other things as we know but not with mind distortion and I know that hallucination are common at least in some children after the condition which also probably depends on the age of the child, etc ?

Thank you again.

Now I can put this issue to rest. That is what ages makes you want to do. Thanks.

Hera

If you wish to call yourself "Science", a process that in fact is ever evolving and follows data, then you probably should learn to read an article in full before you cite it, and also not just read but learn to practice critical thinking skills..
The Snopes article itself confirms Dr Thompsons statement that ":the omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before 36 months were at risk of autism"
Apparently the "false " bit comes because the CDC ( you know the SAME government agency that chose to omit the data and could be facing fraud charges) said something along the lines of ( paraphrasing in my own words here) the data doesn't matter and the kids only got the shots because they wanted extra services....

No vested interest in not going to jail there...
As a general rule though, SNOPES is not considered a scientific source, so if you are interested in actually studying science, you need to learn to cite from peer reviewed journal articles instead. AND read the entire article. The method and results are the most important parts, since conclusions and summaries can leave out a lot. And if you study statistics you can see if they have been doing dodgy stuff with combining groups etc to lose statistical significance. Science is a great thing. But it is not the same as citing popular opinion and hoping "they" are right. There are a lot of scientific peer reviewed articles cited here. You might find it interesting to read and expand your ideas a little.

Who is William Thompson ?

Peter , Saraleigh , Science

We are all deluded here . You are righteous and correct .
We submit to your greater intellect .

But please don't just talk the talk . You need to walk the walk !

That means each of you needs to make sure to take the annual flu vaccine every year from now on .
And make sure you fully vaccinate your entire extended families to the full extent of the cdc dictated vaccine requirement . We wish you well !

John Stone

Bit of a hoot really, someone styling themselves "Science" with "Sarahleigh" hot on their heels citing Snopes. Thompson has made over thousands of documents to Congress and expects to testify. But now maybe we just have to grovel before Snopes like Gessler's hat.

In fact, Gessler's hat might be a pretty good metaphor for this entire gruesome farce.

Saraleigh

http://www.snopes.com/medical/disease/cdcwhistleblower.asp

Too bad the CDC Whistleblower story is false. You are the reason journalists are not taken seriously. I implore you to post this comment which shows facts regarding your writing. If you choose not to, then that's your choice. But it'll only prove you choose your agenda over facts.

Science

This "CDC Whistleblower" story has been clearly shown to be false. See Snopes
http://www.snopes.com/medical/disease/cdcwhistleblower.asp

Personal experiences/coincidences are not science. If you distrust science and doctors so much stop taking any medicines or going to your doctor at all. Indeed, the Internet was developed by scientists, so perhaps you should all get off of it; I read on the Internet it may cause autism...please

Jenny Allan

Peter - Please write your book. The public arena can then decide the merits of your arguments. My grandson regessed into autism shortly after his first birthday; this coincided with the administration of MMR vaccine. He was a much loved baby with lots of attention from his parents and extended family members, with whom he engaged socially. At 12 months he was far too young to have suddenly acquired 'psychological factors'.

It's perfectly true that older autistic children can often also suffer from depression and psychological illnesses, but what comes first -the chicken or the egg? In my grandson's case -definitely the egg -in the form of a syringe full of MMR vaccine.

People do read the comments here, but a majority of these parents believe their children, like my grandson, were damaged by a vaccine.

peter

I thought that this was a good site but no one comments on anything. I can not understand how you can resolve issues when you don't talk about them. Being there before: pages and pages without one comment over months of writing; and like the old saying "you can talk all day; but who's listening"; and the answer generally is no one.

peter

RE my comment "scientists believed that a psychological factor was the cause and all of those scientists can't be wrong". Sorry about such a comment because indeed all of those scientists could have been wrong; but in this particular case of believing that a psychological factor caused autism, they were only partly wrong. They were in the ball park but it is debatable whether it is a psychological factor depending on whether you are in the psychological ball park where you consider a psychological factor as something that the child psychological respond to and. or just as something that psychological affects the mind and/or the brain and or/also the brain.

In my opinion (considered opinion), the first, if negative and particularly traumatic, affects the child's mind and brain to start the roll towards a mental illness when he/she is an adult whereas the second causes a mental illness immediately and or can cause a mental illness immediately. So, early scientists and or more likely doctors who thought that a negative psychological factor caused the mental illness of autism just as negative psychological factors cause mental illnesses when the child became an adult were obviously wrong in some ways because obviously you can not have it both ways; but they were right if they considered the second meaning of psychological factors and particularly if they were to have looked for a traumatic factor as likewise obviously, it could not have been a cold love factor as they thought; but it had to be a traumatic factor as the effects were immediate. There is obviously only one such factor that I can think about, and you too should see it easy, as fortunately, it is obvious; yet absurd, weird and unbelievable; but with research, we may also see that it is highly probable; but even then unbelievable because it is so obvious and I can't not see why we could not think about it and consider it. I still can't see how anyone could miss such a factor and/or indeed not consider it; and I think that it is time that someone in authority considers it and/or researching it.
Incidentally, I should give up writing before the owner/directors/ and or controller of this site starts to ignore me; and/or I write a book on such a thing. Incidentally being there , done that, but as you can see, I am a poor writer etc. and it was rejected several time ie 2 times. I do not want to go there again. It is time to address my own problems of the brain and mind, the age of dementias. Sorry for that mistake but hopefully anyone that reads this will be helpful and if and when you see holes in the case, point them out and we will see can we address them, if they are consider worth while to address; and of course, everything is worthy of addressing if you have the time. Have a good day.

I don't know if they will allow 2 comments right after each other but I will see.
I just wanted to add that there should be no question as to whether the measles vaccine, specifically I think that the german measles one although I am not sure; but one of them easy to check google; causes the autism reaction as there has been at least one article which was ignored about inflammation of the brain due to that vaccine. I can not see how or why such an article can/could be ignored, or rather I can see.
Obviously, they are caught up in the momentum; and the desire; and we all have or should have the desire. We all want to see diseases done away with (eradicated); and the immunization program is commendable and desirable but we must go easy with such a big step; and we haven't; (there are so many things that need to be researched there)but now we have done some of that research or at least have had the opportunity to do so unfortunately with young children who may have paid the price; but also, as you know mental illnesses were always around; and so it may not be necessarily specifically individual due to the immunization program as there are so many other environmental factors that can do it; and several of these have increased just as the immunization program has; and I guess that correlation data can/maybe/should answer that question; however, we can expect a lot of it to be due to the immunization program and possible other changes in our environment. It maybe/is a product of the times and civilization/the age of autism and other mental illnesses in children and seniors.
PS please do not attack my computer

peter

RE cia parker | February 01, 2015 at 07:17 PM

Thank you for your response; and I agree with you in that one of the causes of autism is very probably the measles vaccine whatever one causes measles encephalitis or some other brain problem (you can easy google that to see which one). In fact, I think that Dr. Wakefield has done excellent research and commend him and the lancet for publishing it; however unfortunately but as could be expected under the circumstances, and also what usually happens for example it happened with a scientist in the 1900's who published against an articles about sugars and their negative health effect/affects; he was discredited and ruined; but what he and you are missing is that there can be many causes and the measles vaccine is just one of them but there is only one psychological mechanism of producing autism and/or all other mental illnesses in children that have no knowing cause.
Thanks for your reply.
Incidentally, as I said, originally, scientist believed that a psychological factor was the cause and all of those scientists can't be wrong but somehow the research has forged ahead, gained momentum and forgotten the original premises and that is somehow the flaw in the whole issue. You can not ignore anything in type of research whether it is in autism research or immunization research. You have to follow any lead; and this is so important when we are talking about a child and particularly his/her brain and really what do we know about it all anyway. We know very little about the brain; and also about the mind; etc. It is however very sensitive when so young and it is just beginning; and what you put in it, you get out of it. It is not something to rush ahead with.

Well, that's enough for now, but I could talk about the brain and mind and proper research; and how to research all day and tomorrow also; but I am in my quiet years; and I have my aging mind and brain to think about and repair. All that abusive fluid thinking must be repaired; and that is my objective for this year.

cia parker

Peter,
The cause of autism is vaccines. Scroll back and read the last seven years of articles and comments here, and you'll see that that question, at least, has already been answered.

peter

This seems to be a wonderful site on autism. I wish you luck in finding the cause.
I personally believe that it is a mental illness caused by a psychological factor similar to/sort of like what they first thought; but not because of the parents or people in general, as they once thought--re cold love etc. Incidentally, u can check that on the Canadian Society for autism web page)

Robert

Vaccines do not cause autism, not now, not ever. Cathy Jameson is a complete and total moron who believes anecdotal garbage on Yahoo answers than hard tested and scientifically verified facts. Cathy, I hope this message arrives to you in good health, you can attribute the fact that you're alive to vaccines. It saddens me that there is still a population of idiotic simpletons like yourself that truly deep down believes vaccines cause autism, despite the overwhelming evidence that they do not. Now, because of arrogant folks like yourself, many easily preventable and treatable diseases are on the rise. Have you ever seen a child with measles before? Do you realize how miserable and contagious the disease is? Probably not, because based on your twisted and skewed beliefs you don't spend much time off the internet, let alone in a healthcare setting. I surely hope less and less people believe the trash you post on this page as nearly all of it is completely baseless insensate rambling. Vaccines do not cause autism, however stupidity seems to spread like a plague, and you're one of the sources!
Take care cupcake,
Robert

Pauly

PS to be honest, i did not even read any other comments. I dont beLIEve anything i read on the interwebs or hear from people. I really ONLY on personal experience, and luckily for me, i have a lot in this area.

Pauly

I can only say what i know for sure. I have three offices where i treat children for free and i specialize in autistic kids. At least 1 in 4 parents know FOR SURE that one of the vaccines caused their childs problem because it literally started in the doctors office or right after the shots, or within a day. Many of the others FEEL like the vaccines caused it because the problems started shortly after a vaccine. Very few deny that vaccines had anything to do with it. I don't know for sure, and i do not tell parents one way or another, but i treat with frequencies, and when i treat an autistic kid the first "remedies" i use are one to counteract vaccines, and 100% respond in a positive way within two treatments (a week or two). Believe what you want......i am 100% sure if i had kids again i would not vaccinate.

patricia

Caroline G you sound like a smart girl. And you didn't need to apologise to us all for being healthy and totally unimpaired by any kind of shots. Please don't be sorry. Be sad. For all those children who were not so fortunate as yourself, who did not have the same immunity that your body does. Be sad and compassionate for their families and do some more research if this subject is of any real interest to you. The evidence is out there Caroline G that SOME children do suffer, brain damage and gut damage following Vaccine shots, in particular the Measles Mumps and Rubella vaccine. Start by reading Dr Andrew Wakefield's own words in his book Callous Disregard. And come back and keep on following this excellent informative site. You are welcome here.

For Caroline G

Hi Caroline

Some children survive it and some don't. The argument, which is very familiar (and also rather insulting), is like saying cigarettes don't cause lung cancer because not all cigarette smokers get lung cancer, but you live in country in which more than half of school children have chronic ilnesses and one in six has a developmental impairment. Something like dyslexia may be inherited or susceptibility may be inherited given certain environmental exposures. Or they may be long standing genetic damage. ~90% of schoolchildren get all their shots irrespective of whether their mom is an enthusiast but the evidence is you do not belong to a healthy generation.

Sorry but I'm 14 and my mom has had me have every preventive shot under the sun, and I'm at the top of all of my classes. There's is absolutely nothing wrong with me. I am taking college courses in middle school and am as smart as they come. I am a junior scholar with more vaccines in me then anyone I know. I have no sighs of autism. I am dyslexic though, but that's inherited from my father. That's all that happened here autism was INHERITED.

Hi Weiss Falkner;

Neuropsychological Impairments and Changes in Emotional and Social Behavior following Severe Traumatic Brain Injury"
(Peer reviewed article , you can find it on google scholar)
From the abstract

"Compared to matched healthy controls the patients were impaired at recognizing facial and vocal expressions of emotions, detecting social faux pas, and non verbal fluency"

If someone described those kind of experiences to you, in your opinion, would that sound a lot like autism to you?

ie ti appears that Brain damage can result in something that looks like autism.

About 6% of autism has a known genetic cause, like fragile X. But the science shows that you can get the same symptoms by having your brain damaged through a head injury.

Or of course through a vaccine reaction causing damage to the brain.

Vaccines causing damage to the brain in "rare cases" have been documented again and again.( Got to love those "rare cases"..)

At the point where a vaccine in causing someone to have seizures for the first time in their life, as a young child, it is hard imo to pretend that the vaccine is "harmless".

And a study I have never been able to find is one that follows up on kids who had seizures after vaccines to see what their autism rate is when they turned old enough to get a diagnosis. Say around 5 or 6.

Funny how no one wants to study that...
All the best.

Weiss Faulkner states:- "You cannot get a genetic illness from a half-dead bacterium! That's all a vaccine is. A half dead version of the original illness. To cause Autism via vaccine would mean the weakened virus would somehow need to bypass the immune system."

Just to clarify - I cannot think of any vaccine which contains 'Half dead bacteriums'. The bacterial Pertussis vaccine contains dead extracts, and in many cases, is still permitted to contain mercury preservative, (which would kill anything -alive- contained within the vaccine!).

The MMR vaccine, which has never contained mercury, contains 3 live viruses, although these are stated to have been 'attenuated' i.e. weakened to prevent them causing the diseases vaccinated against. Even so, there are strong warnings on vaccine inserts about NOT vaccinating anyone known to be immune suppressed, or pregnant mums, the latter due to the rubella risks to unborn children. Half dead DOES NOT equate to harmless in these cases.

Incidently, in spite of £$billions spent on dedicated genetic research, no evidence has been found to prove Autism is an inherited genetic condition, but even the much vilified 1998 Wakefield et al Lancet paper, suggested there might be a genetic susceptibility to damage from the live, but attenuated viruses in the MMR vaccine.

The contention that childhood seizures do not cause permanent damage is an assumption. It is impossible to know if mental capacity is diminished in someone whose intelligence, abilities and potential was not known and/or measured to begin with.

Jenny Allan

Weiss Faulkner - Recent Danish research puts child seizures, following MMR vaccine at around 1 in 1000 cases. This is vastly more than the numbers quoted by the CDC. A genetic link might be useful if susceptible children can be identified, but it's disgraceful the way Paul Offit and other pro-vaccine propagandists, dismiss infant seizures as 'harmless'. The fact is that in a small number of cases, infant seizures can lead to brain damage, and yes, as John Stone states, vaccines can cause encephalitis, which can, like seizure induced brain damage, cause autism (or autism like conditions -same difference).

Gene link to seizures in children after MMR vaccine
By Richard InghamOctober 26, 2014 4:06 PM

http://news.yahoo.com/gene-seizures-children-mmr-vaccine-200650797.html
Extract:-
"Paris (AFP) - Scientists in Denmark said Sunday they had found genetic clues to explain why a small number of children have febrile seizures -- brief convulsions -- after receiving the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine.
They stressed there was no need to scrap the MMR vaccine -- caught in a health scare in 1998 that watchdogs later declared groundless -- and described its use as a "great achievement" in saving lives.
Reporting in the journal Nature Genetics, the team found that febrile seizures occurred in roughly one in every 1,000 children who were given the MMR vaccine."

Weiss Faulkner

All vaccines can cause encephalopathies = brain damage. How this manifests itself may vary, however, the HRSA admitted to Sharyl Attkisson and david Kirby on different ocassions:

"The government has never compensated, nor has it ever been ordered to compensate, any case based on a determination that autism was actually caused by vaccines. We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures."

After the Heather Poling incident, the head of the CDC, Julie Gerberding, before she slid through the revolving doors to become head of Merck's vaccine division admitted to CNN:

“….. if you’re predisposed with the mitochondrial disorder, it[vaccination] can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptomscan be symptoms that have characteristics of autism.”.

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0803/29/hcsg.01.html

Unfortunately, the mainstream media suffer from amnesia.

The simple problem the Japanese saga was that the autism rate sagged when MMR uptake fell off and then start to soar with the introduction of single substitute vaccines administered in close temporal proximity.

https://childhealthsafety.wordpress.com/2009/06/03/japvaxautism/

Weiss Faulkner

Impossible. Vaccines cannot cause Autism under any circumstance. Proof? How about the Japanese MMR vaccine, which they withdrew. Autism figures continued to rise.
"Autism rates continued to rise in Japan after the discontinuation of the MMR vaccine, which disproves any large-scale effect of vaccination,[111] The Japanese government does not recognize any link between MMR and autism.[109]"

link 109 http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/1808316.stm

To further this point, read this

"Many causes of autism have been proposed, but understanding of the theory of causation of autism and the other autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is incomplete.[1] Research indicates that genetic factors predominate. The heritability of autism, however, is complex, and it is typically unclear which genes are responsible.[2] In rare cases, autism is strongly associated with agents that cause birth defects.[3] Many other causes have been proposed, such as childhood immunizations, but numerous epidemiological studies have shown no scientific evidence supporting any link between vaccinations and autism"

Proof 3 Arndt TL, Stodgell CJ, Rodier PM. The teratology of autism. Int J Dev Neurosci. 2005;23(2–3):189–99.

You cannot get a genetic illness from a half-dead bacterium! That's all a vaccine is. A half dead version of the original illness. To cause Autism via vaccine would mean the weakened virus would somehow need to bypass the immune system - which would entirely negate the point of a vaccine - and then do something that the healthy virus couldn't do and alter the genetic coding of the child in question. It's impossible, illogical and disproved. Please, stop deluding yourselves by fixating on this hypothetical fantasy and focus on some REAL problems.

Finally, I have Asperger's Syndrome myself. To say that vaccines cause Autism implies disorders like my own are diseases that are contagious and can be spread beyond genetics. This is not true and can be construed as offensive by some people. I don't care, but then again, I have real, proper scientific evidence to back myself up.

One journalist to another, mate. Give. Up.

Bob Derkins

You are the worst journalists ever! I know 4th graders who could beat in a debate about this. I'm not insensitive, but everyone knows that vaccines do not cause autism. You are not an expert on, neither is the whistle blower.

Tony Robucci

yall crazy mofos

Leiloni

I don't know but before my son had the vaccines, he was talking and everything after he turned 18 months old he stopped talking and started only pointing and screaming. He is now 3 years old and has to be in a spececial preschool to relearn how to talk again. My son is autistic and no one is going to tell me putting mercury into anything for children is safe. Don't trust the government, they are in it for themselves, not for the people of the united states. If they weren't they would make sure there was no mercury in the vaccines they are forcing on our children. You can't send your child to school without them. Since when do they have the right to choose what is best for our children? My son is suffering because of them.

Hi O.P.
To follow up on your statement;

"I can eat peanut butter without a problem so anyone who tells me they are allergic to peanut butter is lying."

"I smoke but don't have cancer ( yet) so cigarettes never cause cancer."

"I am not allergic to penicillin so no one is allergic to penicillin.."

That is, logically, what you are saying , isn't it? As long as one person was unaffected, everyone else is lying about the harm caused?

Of course, I am always intrigued by those who state they have had no side effects to the 38 plus vaccines they took as children (all designed to stimulate the young immune system), who then go on to discuss the fact that they do have autoimmune problems like asthma, type 1 diabetes etc.
All these autoimmune disorders are rising.
Is there a connection?

But for what it is worth, I am glad if so far you have had no ill effects from vaccines.

Other people of course may have immune systems that are more easily disrupted than yours.

Re hating the internet? Fair enough. Most people here have already done the academic research and or/witnessed harm come to themselves, or family members or friends directly.


For Xavier; the hundreds of studies world wide that prove your point of view?
Which ones, exactly?
My understanding is that there has NEVER been a vax/unvax study done.
Of course the recent comments by Dr Thompson, who still works for the CDC and who was recorded admitting privately to the fact that the data in one of his studies was edited to lose a link between autism and MMR vaccination in African American male babies should give anyone interested in this topic pause for thought.


You are aware that brain damage ( encephalopathy ) is a listed and acknowledged vaccine injury, aren't you?

I don't understand how it is possible, given that , to logically explain that vaccines can cause brain damage but they are safe for everyone?

Maybe I am missing something?

One Poke,

"I have had all the vaccines recommended by the government (And I'm fine)"

That's debatable. Go take a look in the mirror. Seems you're foaming at the mouth.

Onepoke Inthearm

That was the most well structured series of scientific-ish comments to a totally contraversial topic that I have ever seen.
It sickens me, not that people think shots cause autism, but that they turn to the F***ING INTERNET to settle it.
and by the way, I have had all the vaccines reccomended by the government (And I'm fine).

Also, did the main article ever get more concise that "Chemicals" or "Vaccines?"
I want SPECIFICS.

For Xavier W

Hi Xavier

Autism Science Foundation was founded by Alison Singer in conjunction with leading vaccine industry advocate Paul Offit after she was fired from Autism Speaks in 2009 for taking part in a secret vote against AS policy on the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee to reverse an earlier decision to investigate the vaccine issue: this seems to be her level of integrity. ASF are closely allied to industrial interests and have an axe to grind:

Xavier W.

If "Age of Autism" is so sick and tired of falsified data, why don't you, or any of the readers, conduct your own experimentation? That way, you can be sure you are getting the truth. Conducted this study with tens of thousands of individuals from across the nation or even across the globe and you will get your data. Then, report the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth back to us, the readers.

Also, just for your information, the Autism Science Foundation states that there is no link between autism and vaccines. Check out the board of directors, and I doubt you'll find anyone looking for an edge or trying to hide something.

And please don't claim anything without hard proof and data. It is hard to argue with data, unless you claim it has been falsified. And also, how do you explain the numerous studies conducted that don't show a link from around the world? I would love to hear that explanation.
