Dachel Media Update: Autism Awareness MSM Style

Online newsApril 19, 2016, Fox News: April is autism awareness month: Get the facts  By Dr. Alan Kadish

 Imagine being told that your child would never give you a hug or say, “I love you.” Imagine that your child would never live independently. Many parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities face these realities every day. ASD is used to describe a group of developmental disorders which range in severity, symptoms and level of disability. These include autism, Asperger’s syndrome, and other disorders which affect a child’s ability to communicate and socialize.

April is Autism Awareness Month and provides an opportunity to highlight the importance of support for research, early intervention, timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

The national statistics are startling. One in 68 children in the United States is diagnosed with ASD. In addition, there are increased rates of intellectual disabilities, ADHD, learning disabilities and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. It is clear that the need to address our children's developmental health has reached a critical stage. …

 In recent years, there has been increased research examining possible reasons for the rising rates of ASD, but much work remains to be done. The increased prevalence of these diagnoses is partly due to a better understanding and earlier identification of the symptoms. 

"Critical stage"? Kadish may find the numbers startling, but our health officials do not.

Here's what I posted on the Fox News story:

Over the last 25 years autism, a once rare disorder, has become so common that everyone knows someone with an affected child, and health officials are at a loss to tell us why.

Dr. Kadish attributes this to “better understanding,” but it seems that doctors have only been able to pick up autism in children, not adults. No one has ever been able to show us a comparable rate among adults, and that simple fact should scare us all.

Here’s what experts tell us: One in every 68 eight year olds, including one in every 42 boys, (the only age group studied for the official rate) has autism. They also tell us that 25 percent of them are non-verbal. Furthermore, 30 percent of them experienced a loss of learned skills and regression into autism. Doctors can’t tell us why it happens. And 50 percent of children with autism are prone to wandering.

It is hard to believe that somehow humans have always been disabled in such huge numbers and we only recently picked up on it.

Autism is not a priority for health officials. So far, no one at our Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has ever referred to autism as “a crisis.”

“Serious public health concern” is the strongest language any official has ever used when talking about autism. No one at the CDC has ever stated that more children today actually have autism.


1995: 1 in 500

2001: 1 in 250

2004: 1 in 166

2007: 1 in 150

2009: 1 in 110

2012: 1 in 88

2014: 1 in 68

2016: 1 in 68

Each time the numbers were increased, some official was right there to declare that they weren’t sure if THIS particular rate represented a true increase—something the media used to report that autism has always been this prevalent.

These disabled children, and the generations to follow, will be dependent on the taxpayers for their support and care. I think our real task for Autism Awareness Month is to wake up doctors and health officials to the disastrous effect autism is having on our children.

The words “Fox” and “facts” on the same page always clashes with me.


Ahh the puzzle pieces have appeared this month like clockwork. The propaganda to normalize all this damage (and recognizing that there may be other environmental factors at play, and also that some differences are truly genetic in nature) is in place. Very interesting as well how the "gender ambiguity" which is comorbid with the autism spectrum is becoming very much more common and celebrated.

“Serious public health concern” is the strongest language any official has ever used when talking about autism. No one at the CDC has ever stated that more children today actually have autism."

Consider the stark difference between the CDC's mass hysteria over less than 200 cases of measles .. in a country of 360 MILLION .. or .. their latest foray into the fevered swamp of scaremongering .. the Zika virus .. which no one even knows how many infants have been born with "deformed small heads" in the United States?

When it comes to the raging epidemic of autism .. the CDC's response for the last 20 years has been .. "move along .. nothing to see here".

There is HOPE.

Today ... three "health officials" have been charged with CRIMES .. for deliberately ignoring evidence that Flint Michigan's water had been contaminated with LEAD.

After all .. the damage done to the families of Flint Michigan PALES when compared to the damage done to the families of children with autism .. throughout the WORLD.


Why should we worry about autism? We have all that money to give to zika research.
