INCREASED recognition of "autism-lite" may be behind a sharp rise in those diagnosed with autistic-spectrum disorder, according to the country's leading expert on the condition.
Professor Louise Gallagher said today's broader definition of autism is probably the main factor in the rise in diagnoses, which have increased dramatically in recent years, new figures show.
This is under "News Ireland." No matter--this has been tried in a number of places for years. It just doesn't work. The current estimate is one in every 68 U.S. children, one in every 42 boys.
According to Autism Speaks, 25 percent of autistic children are NON-VERBAL. This is certainly not 'Autism-lite' and that's a lot of kids.
According to Autism Speaks, 50 percent of autistic children wander/bolt. This is certainly not 'Autism-lite' and that's a lot of kids.
The only way to really prove NO REAL INCREASE IS TO SHOW US THE ADULTS LIKE OUR CHILDREN. I can go to any school in the city and find children with easily recognizable signs of autism. I can't go to local nursing homes and find elderly adults displaying the behaviors we see in our kids. WHY NOT?
In the seven years since "The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for Your Child" was published, it has sold more than 250,000 copies and Sears has become a celebrity among parents who see danger in immunization.
While the vast majority of physicians are troubled by the anti-vaccination movement, Sears, 45, lends a sympathetic ear. About half his patients forgo vaccines altogether. To others, he offers "Dr. Bob's" alternative and selective vaccination schedules, which delay or eliminate certain immunizations....
"We eliminated endemic measles in the U.S. in 2000. It's now 2014 and we're at 400 cases. Why?" Dr. Paul Offit, chief of infectious diseases at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, said in an interview in June. The number of cases has since risen to nearly 600. "Because people listen to Bob Sears. And, frankly, I blame him far more than I do the Jenny McCarthys of this world. Because he's a doctor. And he should know more."
Here we have Dr. Offit (described only as "chief of infectious diseases at Children's Hosp. of Philadelphia," and not as someone who's personally made millions from vaccine development),
VS Dr. Sears who believes in parental choice when it comes to vaccinating children. Offit should have stuck to blaming the Jenny McCarthys of this world because Sears is a doctor and that gives him a whole lot of credibility in the face of growing fears over vaccine side effects.
It's amazing that Paul Offit is in the LA Times, at the National Press Club and in the documentary "Calling the Shots"--all happening currently. He's more prominent on this issue than CDC officials.
But some folks worry vaccines are dangerous, and avoid getting them or inoculating their children. That's why it's such good news that a recent study in the journal Pediatrics found that serious complications from vaccines are extremely rare and the evidence is very strong that the measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine is NOT associated with autism.
It also bluntly identified serious adverse events that have happened (very, very infrequently): MMR vaccines have triggered febrile seizures; the varicella vaccine is associated with complications when given to someone with immune deficiency. Vaccines are not absolutely safe, but the benefits of vaccinations exceed the risks by about 40,000 to 1.
A new timely study showing no link between the MMR and autism is announced in Pediatrics.
"Major review of vaccine safety"--What's that?
Risk is 40,000 to one? Where did that come from?
It sounds like someone just look over the previous CDC studies showing no link and concluding that THERE IS STILL NO LINK. The fact that this was published in the Pharma-friendly AAP mag, Pediatric, doesn't mean anything really.
What is strange that I only could find this in the news from Huntington WV.
A groundswell of backlash against government corruption has been unleashed across the web following the revelation that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lied about data linking vaccines and vaccine ingredients to autism. The hashtags "#CDCwhistleblower" and "#hearthiswell," a reference to a global campaign aimed at "breaking the science on vaccine violence," are bursting forth across Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, drawing attention to the U.S. government's evil vaccine war against the most vulnerable members of society, our children.
Moms everywhere are posting videos on YouTube bearing these hashtags, in which they talk about their own children who were damaged by vaccines, warning others to be cautious before injecting their babies without researching the matter on their own. One mother of eight children, for instance, talks about how, among the six that were vaccinated, three have autism, and the others have a variety of mood and behavioral disorders, as well as gastrointestinal and other physical health problems.
"Out of my vaccinated children, three have autism," she states. "One has ADHD [attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder], one has a severe language disorder, and one has severe mood swings. They have also suffered from asthma, eczema, chronic ear infections, gastrointestinal disorders, urinary tract infections, psoriasis, food allergies, chemical sensitivities."
"My two unvaccinated children have had none of their siblings' disorders -- their health has been excellent," she adds.

It isn't just that the CDC is accused of covering up incriminating MMR study results, but the mainstream news has also been noticeably silent. Over the last two decades CDC studies showing no link between their vaccines and autism has gotten lead coverage in print and broadcast news. The whistleblower story is everywhere on social media, but it is not being covered by the major TV networks or newspapers. The public sees this double standard and it clearly looks like the media isn't willing to report on the controversy when it challenges the official position of the CDC.
For years, parents of autistic children have claimed a link between their children's condition and vaccines. One vaccine in particular has been mentioned: the MMR (Mumps, Measles, and Rubella), which has a record of side effects, some severe.
The Center for Disease Control of the United States has consistently denied any MMR/autism connection. In congressional testimony and elsewhere, it has consistently cited a 2004 study of its own published in Pediatrics.
Now one of the authors of that study, William W. Thompson, a senior scientist employed by the CDC, has admitted that critical data from the study was suppressed. That data suggested a link between the MMR and autism when the vaccination is done at the recommended age, especially among infant African-American males. This is what Dr Thompson himself says in his statement: "The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism."
One scientist, Dr. Brian Hooker, sought the complete study data for a decade and finally got it with the help of Congress. He reported that
