Mommy and Daddy Are to Blame For Today's Pediatric Developmental Problems!

The Scores are Falling! The IQ Scores are Falling!

Chicken littleWe're called Henny Penny when we discuss vaccine injury. It's not possibly true that the skies fell on our kids. But there's no denying that IQ scores have been dropping. The reasons are as chicken and little as ever. Anything but the copious vaccination schedule.

CNN put out a stunning report on June 13th entitled, IQ scores are falling and have been for decades, new study finds. 

Since it would be highly implausible that this is related to genetics, the study authors acknowledge that the IQ change is environmentally caused.

IQ scores have been steadily falling for the past few decades, and environmental factors are to blame, a new study says.

The research suggests that genes aren't what's driving the decline in IQ scores, according to the study, published Monday.

Norwegian researchers analyzed the IQ scores of Norwegian men born between 1962 and 1991 and found that scores increased by almost 3 percentage points each decade for those born between 1962 to 1975 -- but then saw a steady decline among those born after 1975.

But before anyone thinks that the scientific/medical establishment is finally waking up to what exposure to toxins is doing to the human race, they have to read the rest of the story.

These environmental factors could include changes in the education system and media environment, nutrition, reading less and being online more, Rogeberg said.

The earlier rise in IQ scores follows the "Flynn effect," a term for the long-term increase in intelligence levels that occurred during the 20th century, arguably the result of better access to education, according to Stuart Ritchie, a postdoctoral fellow in cognitive ageing at the University of Edinburgh whose research explores IQ scores and intelligence and who was not involved in the new study.

(CNN did include a link to a story about lower IQs and fluoride exposure from Sept, 2017, but the piece ended with the caveat that there was no conclusive evidence that fluoride in water was really harmful.  No other chemical connection was mentioned.)

According  to the experts who can see what’s happening to the intelligence levels of children, the forces at work here are SOCIAL, not really environmental.  It’s exposure to social media, it’s the way school are run today.

The message here isn’t surprising. CNN has a history of blaming people’s lifestyle for changes in kids.

In October, 2017 CNN ran the story, Little kids and 'toxic stress': we can solve this.

It was all about how damaging a bad HOMELIFE is for children.

Educators, parents and policymakers have long acknowledged such obstacles, but we now know that there is another significant consideration: Prolonged stress at home can disrupt development and set children back before school even begins….

A growing body of research shows that trauma at home can seriously affect a child's health and education. Physical or emotional abuse, neglect, parental mental illness, exposure to violence or the accumulated burdens of poverty can trigger what is known as a "toxic stress" response.

In the short term, this can inhibit children's ability to learn, to manage emotions and build relationships with peers, putting them at a disadvantage before they ever even set foot in a classroom. Children who have experienced four or more traumatic experiences are more than 30 times more likely to have a learning or behavior problem than their more fortunate peers.

In the long run, toxic stress can actually disrupt the development of the brain and other organs and body systems and increase the risk for chronic disease, heart attack, stroke, mental illness and cognitive impairment well into adulthood.

A 1998 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente on adverse childhood experiences/toxic stress and what it does to kids is behind all this. CNN announced that things have to change in order to counter the effects of abusive, negligent parents.  In our modern, high stress world, the pressures on families are ever greater.

Despite the prevalence of toxic stress and the severity of its impact on children's lives, existing education, health, and social support systems are not set up to help the children most likely to experience trauma, which often goes untreated. At The Primary School, we are seeking to acknowledge and address toxic stress, so we can arm our children with the academic skills they need to succeed in college and beyond.

This incredibly complex problem cannot be solved by tinkering at the edges. Instead, we have tried to build an entirely new system of care centered around a child's comprehensive needs. We are still very early in our work and are learning more every day, but our approach is grounded in three important ideas.

Back in May, 2017, CNN also covered adverse childhood experiences/childhood trauma in a report

about how it’s up to society to step in to protect children and repair the damage from parents at home.

The time has come for all systems engaged with the care of children to tackle this problem head-on.

Conclusion: Parents need to shape up

It’s simple, all the problems kids have today—lower IQs, learning problems, behavior issues, chronic illnesses—lead us back to what parents are doing TO THEM at home. Teachers are being taught to ask, “What happened to you?” when a child has problems.  And every parent needs to understand that if their child isn’t able to perform well in school, everyone will be looking at them.

Flynn Effect

I am a child psychologist and I have been providing IQ testing services for more than 3 decades now. I can attest to the fact that IQs have been decreasing overtime. While increased plastics, pollution and processed food are known factors, I also feel that pseudo medical scientific studies based on lack of evident e.g. vaccination are promoting unhealthy living for all of us which indirectly impacts IQ.

This is a shame. I wonder how long would pseudo scientific studies continue steering humanity backwards.

The Scores are falling, the Scores are falling. "They hit me on the head!"

I think the vaccines are the trigger in many cases of childhood autism and other forms of brain damage, but I also believe you're right that environmental damage - everything from pesticides to pollution to heavy metals (e.g. lead in Flint water) to EMF radiation to toxic waste dumps plays a key role in the damage done to our minds and bodies. The prevalence of all chronic diseases - not just autism - has increased in the last several decades. Our kids are only the most vulnerable.

Unless our Congress becomes willing to regulate corporations so that they take responsibility for the environmental damage they cause I don't see this changing soon. Corporations take the fast road to profits and leave real people behind. Any and all attempted regulation is vigorously fought. Business rules. And with globalization this becomes an international problem as well as a problem here in the US.

Thanks Tim and

The UKs Jeremy Hunt has signed off on Gardasil for Boys. (it looks like)
We should have protested this. Damn those scoundrels .
This is downright criminal fraud against the taxpayer as well as a crime against humanity.


There was a theory about lead and mercury in the air playing a role in a higher crime rate and a decrease in IQ between the 1950's-1980's. The main culprit was automobile exhaust. i imagine over vaccination playing a role but what about dozens of other causes that are man made. what about the recent decline in some countries it could still be another environmental source of mercury and lead in Norway. Svalbard is a major strip mining place and this uses mercury and lead both a coincidental bi product and in the actual extraction of the resources.


I wish the media would get it's story straight. I'm so confused. So if you're a child ripped from your parents' arms at the border because you are seeking asylum, the act of separating you from your mom and dad puts you at risk of developmental problems. If you are a child with developmental or chronic health problems it is because of what must be happening to you while you are living at home with your parents?!

The Scores are falling, the sperm count is falling, female fertility is falling but the amount of Aluminum, thimerosal, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, and other Toxins being shot into people for profit is escalating.

The rate in the Yukon, a territory in the north of Canada, was very low, at 1 in 125. According to several websites, e.g., the Yukon has a low vaccination rate.

@hans It is hard to believe that small deltas in vaccination rates are causing much higher deltas in autism rates. But it is easy to believe that higher Vitamin A intake on the east coast of Canada is a major factor, because Atlantic fish have 10x the retinol content as those from the Pacific.

Have you read Grant Genereaux's books? He makes a very strong case for Vitamin A as a major factor in autism. (Of course vaccines are also a factor, they work together.) His books are free downloads at and


I took an IQ test in 8th grade. I remember that getting one of the answers right involved knowing that a piano could be classified as a percussion instrument. A smart person who didn't play the piano might get that one wrong. I think that current tests have less baked-in cultural bias.

There are probably a myriad of ways to reduce IQ and fewer ways to increase it. Because I've become interested in fat vs. sugar, and the effects of our obsession with reducing fats and cholesterol, I looked for information about recent changes in the Norwegian diet. This was published in 2009:

"Norwegian nutrition policy has focused extensively on fat reduction and this is where the results have been most positive. Over the past 25-30 years the proportion of fat in the Norwegian diet has decreased from 40% in 1975 to 34% in 2000 (however, the proportion of saturated fat has remained fairly constant). This decrease has been compensated by an increase in the amount of bread and other grain products and of sugar in the diet...."


A word to all Canadians;

"what parents are doing TO THEM at home?"
Signing the vaccine permission form!

All vaccines are VOLUNTARY In Canada...

No matter how you are bullied (like I was), coerced by deceit,
that your little boys "goods will fall of" if they do not receive the HPV (yes, true story)
or told they are mandatory.. it is a lie by the public health uninformed! Exemptions include Statement of Conscience, Medical and Religious. Simple as a different signed form.

Please...Research before signing your child's health way...You can always decline, delay but never undo. Exercise your medical freedom of choice.


Of course the destruction of the human brain has nothing to do with the decades of damage inflicted by numerous predators in cahoots with these reporters. They'll just deflect blame like they always do because they can. Who is going to stop them? They invent and distribute the narrative.

I read in one of these propaganda pieces that it isn't really that the human race is losing intelligence, but that the IQ test is just obsolete. It doesn't work, isn't valid in our modern times. So what will the new measuring method be and what will be the new outward signs of intelligence? How one conforms? How one uses the prescribed technology, follows the rules and uses one's resources to boost the economy? How one stays in line?

The "refrigerator mom" plausible denial strategy worked so well over the years .. why not fabricate a similar plausible denial for lowering IQ's. It is all so predictable .. yet … it works .. over and over again.

How much longer can those who profit from vaccines deny the connection between autism rates and vaccination? With incriminating evidence like the latest report from the Public Health Agency of Canada, their damage control experts will certainly have their work cut out for them.

The agency is about to release its first national autism-related data since 2016, and it shows a steady rise in the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders in the years since 2003. The rates varied by location, with areas like Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Newfound and Labrador having the highest prevalence.

The story becomes a lot more interesting, however, when you compare the data in the report, which was taken from the Canadian National Autism Spectrum Surveillance System, with the Public Health Agency’s vaccine coverage data, which is broken down by province and vaccine type. It shows that autism prevalence is the greatest where the vaccine rates happen to be the highest. Surprised?

Let’s revisit the provinces with the highest autism rates. In Newfoundland and Labrador, where a 227-percent rise in ASD prevalence was noted from 2003 to 2009, one out of every 57 children has a confirmed ASD diagnosis, compared to the national average of one out of every 66. Vaccine coverage rates there for diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus are 84.5, 84.2, and 83.9 percent respectively.

It’s a similar story in Prince Edward Island, where one out of every 59 kids has ASD and prevalence climbed by 254 percent from 2003 to 2015. There, the vaccine coverage rates for diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus were 75.8, 74.7, and 74.3 percent respectively. In Quebec, meanwhile, cases increased by 349 percent in the same time period, and one out of every 65 children has ASD. The vaccine coverage rates there for diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus were 79.3, 79.5, and 79.3 percent respectively.
