I would not be convicted by a jury of my peers
Still crazy after all these years.

“Bill Welsh is a fruitcake”.
The above remark, was posted on the internet in 1998 by an American troll shortly after I had contributed to a UK newspaper item on vaccine safety (or lack of it). I was reminded of this episode only recently when I was informed by another anonymous troll “You are out of your mind and dangerous!” It made me think that my long held strategy* is not working.
A) Never get angry (passionate Yes, but angry No)
B) Ignore the ill informed
C) Deal only in hard facts.
Sounds a great strategy, dontyathink?
Frankly, it has not worked, so it’s back to the drawing board for me. But first let us look at one main strand of the original strategy:
A) Hard facts.
1) The autism epidemic CANNOT be genetic in origin.
2) Epidemiology is NOT appropriate as a tool to prove vaccines are safe
3) In the UK there are now over 100,000 schoolchildren with an autism diagnosis. (From rare to common in 20 years!).
4) Recent official research puts the annual cost to society of autism in the UK at over £34 billion.
5) 10 Years from now the number of UK schoolchildren with ASD will have doubled if present rate of diagnosis merely stays the same (based on Scottish government figures).
6) This rise in incidence is not and never has been as a result of “better recognition”.
7) No one in officialdom is earnestly seeking to identify the environmental factor causing this public health tragedy.
I recently published on the internet my personal hypothesis on the likely cause of ‘regressive’ autism and why so many parents associate their child’s withdrawal into ASD with the vaccination programme. The more I researched the issue the more I have come to believe that the manufacturing process using ‘Cell Culture Technology’, introduced in the thirties in the USA, (Autism was identified as a new condition in 1944), the more I am convinced that this is where the answer to the autism enigma lies.
Parents from over 46 countries have visited my web page and read my theory including parents in Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Barbados, Belgium, Brazil, Burma, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Federated States of Micronesia, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Honduras, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Singapore, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, Turkey, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, the UK and the USA.
Why would parents in all these countries be interested in my hypothesis on why so many children are developing ASD symptoms? Could it be that they too are looking for answers? And what common factor could possibly be at play in such a wide variety of international locations?
(Answers on a postcard please, addressed to: World Health Organisation. Geneva, Switzerland.)
There is a culture of cover up and denial in the higher echelons of the medical profession often supported by the bogus argument that it would not be “in the public interest” to pursue a thorough investigation into the evidence and witness of parents on the issue of regressive autism. It is somehow, in the perverted world of the establishment ‘in the public interest’ to deny the damage done to children and to ignore the consequences of its own appalling ineptitude.
The real scandal is that the lengthy denial by the medical profession is the root cause of hundreds of thousands of children worldwide losing their childhood and beyond. The time-span between a child beginning the process of withdrawal into ASD and receiving targeted treatment is significant. I have given consideration to this aspect and the phrase that comes to mind is “criminal medical negligence” with the emphasis on the word criminal.
Apparently it has been decreed that the ‘system’ must be protected no matter the damage being done. Seemingly it is more important to protect the ‘system’ than to contemplate the reality of what is happening worldwide.
This cannot go on. Too many damaged children in too many countries must surely bring politicians to their senses. The dam must burst soon.
Then again, maybe I am still crazy after all these years
