Why Aren’t Autistic Children Getting The Establishment Help They Need?
One of the most puzzling aspects of the autism fiasco is the failure of The Establishment to participate meaningfully in research into how to manage, treat and/or cure the disorder. Congressman Burton heldleast one hearing on the subject. In the one I attended, NIH was grilled on the paucity of funding compared to conditions like diabetes and AIDS, some of which are considerably less widespread than autism is now understood to be.
These children have clearly been left out to dry by The Establishment. The burning question, in my opinion, is why?
Although purely speculative on my part, the only answer I can come up with is that any solution might well reveal the cause. And if the cause is vaccines, they’d simply rather not know.
More to the point, they’d rather we not know.
Now because I don’t personally have an effected child, I’m not up on the various protocols that are being use to treat, even cure, these children. What I do know, however is that every time chelation is offered and reduces symptoms, it is evidence that heavy metal(s), including mercury, might be involved.
That’s the last thing they want us to find out.
Meanwhile they argue genetics, basically incurable, untreatable genetics. Genetics, the one “cause” not amenable to treatment. Genetics, the one “cause” not amenable to finding a solution.
Never mind that genetic disorders usually need a trigger to be activated.
And the fact that there are no known genetic epidemics? Voilà, there is no increase!
If it weren’t for the parents and some doctors (many of whom are parents of an autistic child or two), we would have no idea that these children can and do get better.
But now we do. And it could not be clearer that The Establishment has two choices: it can either continue to be part of the problem or start becoming part of the solution.
If vaccines are a cause, given that The Establishment recommended and continues to recommend vaccines in ever growing numbers, it won’t be an easy choice. Admitting culpability never is.
Still, I wonder what they’ll choose.
