At the September reunion of the freshman class of the 104th U.S. Congress in 1994, event organizer Dr. Dave Weldon reminisced about his first foray into politics....
Thanks to Weldon, toxic mercury-containing preservatives were removed from childhood vaccines.
"We came in on what the media described as the "bow wave" in the election of '94 and we gave ourselves 100 days to accomplish the "Contract with America," one of the most ambitious legislative reform packages of modern times," said the Indialantic physician.
So, do any of these celebrating Congress people realize that in 1994 the U.S. autism rate was one in every 500 children, and today it's one in every 68? This explosion happened under their watch and all they did was give us IAAC with Thomas Insel in charge.
It's a little annoying to see a promo of Dave Weldon's good works in Congress and see that "Thanks to Weldon," .... "mercury-containing preservatives," which we're told are "toxic," were removed from children's vaccines.
That's not true. American children and pregnant women continue to be shot up with deadly mercury---and kids in the poorest places on Earth--incredibly are given lots of mercury laced vaccines because, sorry, their countries are unable to afford mercury-free vaccines.
Please watch the Sharyl Attkisson CBS video from SIX YEARS AGO where Weldon talks about vaccines and autism that I included in my comment below.
Researchers looking into the cause of autism think they may have found it in an unlikely place - the gut.
Autism was first officially recognized as a condition 60 years ago. Most people we know have a family member who is autistic or knows someone who has a family member diagnosed with autism.
I can't believe that Dr. McDonough is STILL talking like this. Four years ago a national study linked the gut and the brain. McDonough pretends this is news. I posted three comments.
Matt Bourne spent his spring break knocking over furniture. One day, he broke a dresser in his sister's room and pulled down a flat-screen television. He punched himself in the face, hit his older sister, and hit his mom.
The family dealt with it as they normally did, taking turns cornering the 10-year-old in a back bedroom in their home in Cornville, about a 90-minute drive north of metro Phoenix. When someone had to use the bathroom, another family member would step in to take a turn.
It was the longest violent rage Matt had ever had, lasting for seven hours.
No one could ask Matt what was wrong, because he doesn't speak.
This is the story of Matt Bourne and it's the down side of autism. I'm frankly surprised Ashley Cusick even wrote about it. This boy is violent and he's only eleven. (We told that the good news is that only ten percent of ASD kids are like Matt.) BUT.......considering almost 2 percent of U.S. kids have an autism diagnosis, that's still a lot of Americans.
Wendy Fournier, National Autism Association, is quoted, but still they don't see her comment as a wake-up call.
There are no facilities for kids like Matt, we're told. WHY???
There are vague references to closing institutions and a lack of resources, but nothing about A EPIDEMIC OF AUTISTIC KIDS.
The classic line here... "No matter the cause, ..." .........I've heard it so many times before.........
We will fade into a sea of children becoming adults who can't speak, can't learn, can't live independently, and are violent.....and NEVER ONCE ADMIT THIS IS A NATIONAL HEALTH CRISIS FOR WHICH WE NEED ANSWERS. NEVER DEMAND TO KNOW THE CAUSE.
IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
