June 1, 2014, UK Guardian: Why antibiotics are making us all ill



A groundbreaking study has been published this year in the respectable Lancet. I suggest the editorial staff fire up Google and read up. Also, taking swipes in your editorial at people like myself who "complain" about vaccines is not nice.

Vaccines have every reason to be complained about. The CDC is not telling the American people the truth. People must do their own vaccine research.

Unfortunately, I figured this out too late for my own child, who regressed and became "autistic" and ill after his 12-month vaccines. 49 doses of 14 vaccines by the age of six is insane.

A letter to the editor telling parents to do their own research when it comes to vaccines.  I must have been in reaction to a piece previously published.  Nice to see.  Even this will, of course, generate criticism.  How could this paper allow a mother to cite her anecdotal evidence!


The signs of autism can be identified in young babies in their early life, say researchers. US researchers examined how young babies looked at faces from their birth till the time they turn three. They later discovered that the children diagnosed with autism show the symptom of a diminished eye contact, which is a proof and major sign of autism in the early months of life.

A UK expert says that this new finding has brought a new hope of tackling autism in the early stages of life. Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta initiated a study in which an eye-tracking technology was used to measure the way babies look at things and also monitors how babies responds to the social clues.

Well of course, we always need to find it even earlier. I'm seriously waiting for an ultrasound check for autism. (And of course, that will lead to lots of moral/ethical issues, but no one really cares.) The real reason for the research and the coverage is foster the belief that autism is genetic, babies are born autistic, we need to find it as soon as we can. It's normal for kids to be this way and we will never ask know why.

ABC 7 Chicago

More than 90 percent of adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are either unemployed or underemployed.

There are several businesses that have been created around the country that are specifically designed for qualified individuals with ASD. One of them is Autonomyworks.

. . .

All Autonomyworks employees are part time and between the ages of 18 to 35 years.

Friedman said many adults with autism excel at certain things. . . .

Specific accommodations like a sensory room are available to employees.

Ryan Murrary is 20-years-old. He works one to three days per week.

"I like that it's in a quiet office environment, and I like the set-up of the work that we do for our clients," he said. "And I feel proud, we get the work completed and we get more as clients need it."

ABC 7 sounds so excited about this, but they're also being a little disingenuous here. Saying 90 percent of adults with autism are unemployed or underemployed hides the scary fact that 85 percent of these adults are actually UNEMPLOYED.

There's no mention of the rate here. Maybe if the public were told by ABC 7 that autism affects one in every 68 children, one in 42 among boys alone and that when they become adults, 85 PERCENT WON'T BE EMPLOYED...it wouldn't be just a nice human interest story. (The cost of autism is going to be a big surprise to all the people who've been told that all we need is awareness.)

UK Guardian

Scientist Martin Blaser argues that we are suffering from new wave of 'modern plagues' such as obesity and asthma because we have destroyed the naturally occurring bacteria in our bodies

Yet recently, just within the past few decades, amid all of these medical advances, something has gone terribly wrong. In many ways, we appear to be getting sicker. You can see the headlines every day. We are suffering from an array of what I call "modern plagues": obesity, childhood diabetes, asthma, hay fever, food allergies, oesophageal reflux and cancer, coeliac disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, autism, eczema. In all likelihood, you or someone in your family or someone you know is afflicted. Unlike most lethal plagues of the past that struck relatively fast and hard, these are chronic conditions that diminish and degrade their victims' quality of life for decades. The most visible of these plagues is obesity. . . .

Look at the HEALTH PROBLEMS listed...autism is among them. Martin Blaser should be most concerned about the fact that health officials AREN'T ALARMED. They still pretend that all these illnesses (especially among children) are no big deal. The CDC just held a press conference about measles outbreaks, promoting their vaccine. They aren't doing this about Crohn's Disease or diabetes.

Blaming antibiotics is safe. Citing an ever-expanding, unsafe, unchecked vaccine schedule could end your career, something I'm sure Dr. Blaser understands, after all, he's from the U.K.

I posted three comments.

I saw a grandson change how he looked at faces immediately after his first "well baby" visit, at which he received his first vaccines. He was also circumcised at this visit, and for several years, I blamed the circumcision on the complete change this baby underwent. But it was the vaccines. He would shriek when taken to the grocery story (loud fluorescent lights). But the biggest change was how he would turn his head hard to the side to avoid looking at faces.


"The signs of autism can be identified in young babies in their early life, say researchers. US researchers examined how young babies looked at faces from their birth till the time they turn three."

As if! For generations parents have been raising babies and never noticed a child who was somewhat different or wrote down accounts of these special children. Where are the historical records? These people trying to rewrite history and erase our memories. More brainwashing to convince us that autism has always been with us just unrecognized.
