The NY Times REPORTS that a handful of people who blow pigs brains' out of the skull in a Minnesota pork processing plant contracted a neurological disorder. Panic ensues. Tests run. Specialists called in. State epidemiologists on high alert.
Read this! "Steroids did nothing for Ms. Kruse, so doctors began to treat her every two weeks with IVIG, intravenous immunoglobulin, a blood product that contains antibodies. “It’s kind of like hitting the condition over the head with a sledgehammer,” Dr. Lachance said. “It overwhelms the immune system and neutralizes whatever it is that’s causing the injury.”
Sound familiar my autism friends?
Oh, if you aren't aware of biomedical treatments for autism, many children are treated with IVIG by DAN! doctors for immune disorders. Of course, there are those that will call that quackery. After all, treating children with autism medically is heresy in their world. But it's EXACTLY what was done for these patients with success.
They are looking for the cause. Looking for the cure. As one doc says, "It's a great detective story." What about the horror story called autism affecting tens of thousands of children? Eh, it's just genetics. Take them home, love them for their special differences and get on a group home list. When you die, strangers paid $7.50 an hour will tend to your children. Don't bother us you silly Mommies and Daddies, we have a handful of workers in Minnesota to concentrate on right now.
It makes me want to blow my pigs' brains out.
