Weekly Wrap: Autism Science, Doing Autopsies on Plane-Crash Victims

AofA Red Logo Ayumi YamadaBy Dan Olmsted

When the mainstream media and medical establishment talk about autism long enough, they end up babbling incoherent nostrums about early detection, greater awareness, the joys of disability and, finally, pure noise. The "news" product that gets extruded through the tube becomes stupider and stupider and older and older.

That's where we are in Autism Awareness Month, limping to the finish line with the last embers of empathy all but extinguished.  I just read as "new" the idea that valproate can cause autism. Yes, we know. And the most delectable morsel had to be the comment in the Times this week, regarding the wrinkled placenta theory of autism, that one researcher had sent another "Milky Way bar-size sections of 217 placentas."

Yum! Allow me to quote from one of our valued commenters, "Barry," in response to someone touting their scientific credentials on AOA:

"It's little wonder that you arrogant, overeducated buffoons have wasted so much time ... and have yet to accomplish anything! What you 'scientists' are doing, is roughly the equivalent of an air crash investigator completing autopsies on all the plane crash victims ... to try and figure out what caused them all to die!

"These vaccine injured children that you prefer to call autistic, have one big thing in common. They all have severely dysfunctional immune systems, which in most cases are relentlessly attacking their own bodies. Hmmmmn... severely disabled immune systems, that have suddenly become rampant in the most vaccinated generation in the history of mankind. Is it really that hard for you 'scientists' to connect the dots on this?"

Yes, it is hard, when rather than listening to parents or calling for vax-unvax data stat or drawing the logical conclusions about the neurotoxicity of ethylmercury, you are shipping Milky Way bar-size portions of placentas to each other.


Speaking of listening to parents, Joan Campbell told me this week that her site followingvaccinations.com now has 1771 comments from more than 150 countries all saying the same thing -- that injury, including autism, and even death followed directly and swiftly after vaccinations. When I wrote about it just a couple of years ago it had half as many.

As I said at the time, this is one of the most important documents ever assembled regarding children's health and, among other things, a standing reproach to the glib assertions that things like autism just kinda sorta happen around kinda the time when kids get some shots or sumthin' like that.

Let's just take the first entry:

"Ana Maria Abba  I believe my son's issues stem from the two flu vaccines I was strongly advised to take during pregnancy. I did an alternative vaccine schedule. He developed normally until 9 months when he started to get sick a lot. I looked and it seemed to be around when he got the polio shot. I believe he had mild autism at 2 yrs (I didn't know that then but was starting to be suspicious) then I gave him the Hep B shot since I had just moved to Malaysia and was freaked out about the 3rd world country thing. Anyway after that shot he developed a bad fever. He also lost his strength which was visual learning. He stopped reading his books. He really went downhill after that. He was diagnosed about that same time. Polio and others in Littleton, CO Hep B Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia"

And one from the Z's:

"Dustin Zeimet  Our son was administered hib and the flu vaccine in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Within 3 days we started seeing headbanging, hitting and many more meltdowns than usual.  He is almost 4 now and his regression of skills into autism started between 13 and 15 mo."

Now that's the kind of autism awareness we need a lot more of.

Don't forget there is a definite genetic factor. Autism runs rampant in my family, in both vax'd and unvax'd, and has for generations. With all the research and awareness being brought to light, my family only just found out maybe ten+ years ago, and more of us are seeking a professional diagmosis. Therefore, my family adds to the number of people being diagnosed, and it's a large family. Many people on the spectrum are also high functioning, rather than the typical low functioning that is most commonly portrayed.

Lets hope the tides are turning ..people on here have been at this for 40 years and more..just to say things are looking diffrent..



Autism will probably be the first medical affliction slowed & finally halted by the internet and email between parents.

It is difficult to believe there is a nurse or a doctor in the United States who could still shoot up an infant with a mercury flu vaccine at six months.


Olympics psychological gymnastics--

I hear you.

The psychological gymnastics that are going on to study anything other than what parents are directly observing is astonishing.

Having spoken to so many VICP families, it is immediately obvious that THERE IS A PATTERN HERE! The same pattern of regression following vaccination is obvious.

The vaccine injured need to be studied.

It is that simple.

A team at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine conducted several studies (1,2) to determine if vaccines can cause changes in the immune system of dogs that might lead to life-threatening immune-mediated diseases. They obviously conducted this research because concern already existed. It was sponsored by the Haywood Foundation which itself was looking for evidence that such changes in the human immune system might also be vaccine induced. It found the evidence.

The vaccinated, but not the non-vaccinated, dogs in the Purdue studies developed autoantibodies to many of their own biochemicals, including fibronectin, laminin, DNA, albumin, cytochrome C, cardiolipin and collagen.

This means that the vaccinated dogs — ”but not the non-vaccinated dogs”– were attacking their own fibronectin, which is involved in tissue repair, cell multiplication and growth, and differentiation between tissues and organs in a living organism.

The vaccinated Purdue dogs also developed autoantibodies to laminin, which is involved in many cellular activities including the adhesion, spreading, differentiation, proliferation and movement of cells. Vaccines thus appear to be capable of removing the natural intelligence of cells.

Autoantibodies to cardiolipin are frequently found in patients with the serious disease systemic lupus erythematosus and also in individuals with other autoimmune diseases. The presence of elevated anti-cardiolipin antibodies is significantly associated with clots within the heart or blood vessels, in poor blood clotting, haemorrhage, bleeding into the skin, foetal loss and neurological conditions.

The Purdue studies also found that vaccinated dogs were developing autoantibodies to their own collagen. About one quarter of all the protein in the body is collagen. Collagen provides structure to our bodies, protecting and supporting the softer tissues and connecting them with the skeleton. It is no wonder that Canine Health Concern’s 1997 study of 4,000 dogs showed a high number of dogs developing mobility problems shortly after they were vaccinated (noted in my 1997 book, What Vets Don’t Tell You About Vaccines).

Perhaps most worryingly, the Purdue studies found that the vaccinated dogs had developed autoantibodies to their own DNA. Did the alarm bells sound? Did the scientific community call a halt to the vaccination program? No. Instead, they stuck their fingers in the air, saying more research is needed to ascertain whether vaccines can cause genetic damage. Meanwhile, the study dogs were found good homes, but no long-term follow-up has been conducted. At around the same time, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Vaccine-Associated Feline Sarcoma Task Force initiated several studies to find out why 160,000 cats each year in the USA develop terminal cancer at their vaccine injection sites.(3) The fact that cats can get vaccine-induced cancer has been acknowledged by veterinary bodies around the world, and even the British Government acknowledged it through its Working Group charged with the task of looking into canine and feline vaccines(4) following pressure from Canine Health Concern. What do you imagine was the advice of the AVMA Task Force, veterinary bodies and governments? “Carry on vaccinating until we find out why vaccines are killing cats, and which cats are most likely to die.”


With the Swansea measles outbreak wouldn't this be a fine time for provaxxers to show how measles are such a scourge and give us the figures of the health outcomes of those who came down with the illness. Yes, we know one individual with the measles died, although it is not certain whether measles was the cause. How are the others doing? HHHMMMM!!!

I think sadly over the years everyone knows someone autistic or knows of one autistic human ..that in itself is nuts,from a condition that was very rare 10 years ago ..or as they would love to brainwash us all thinking it is a genetic epedemic..
