I do think the message is sinking in. A friend told me someone asked on Facebook if she should get a flu shot. About two thirds of the people said no or expressed doubts and this was not a wholistic crowd. It is sad that the coverage of this issue is so pathetic but still, I see progress.


It's not fake news kids. The Republicans intend large cuts to "entitlements" after the midterms including disability payments, Medicare and Medicaid. The only people, apparently, who are entitled are the one percent, billionaires and the Presidents golfing buddies. Tax cuts for private plane owners. It would be funny if it wasn't very worrisome for the autism community and others who depend on some services and deserve them. It is true that the health care sucks but I feel better at least having it as a backup. Once they wipe out the protection for preexisting conditions, that will really devastate some people able to work but perhaps not getting health insurance from a job or only able to work part time. This is serious.


The Disappeared--this how they will make the great poisoning disappear. Manipulate and deny the numbers.

OT, but in the realm of CDC priorities and responses, has anyone seen the headlines saying the CDC says that 80,000 died from flu last year?

"The flu typically kills by triggering other deadly conditions such as pneumonia, stroke and heart attack. "

So now they are factoring in heart attacks (and of course never mentioning that thimerosal is a heart poison) and blaming 'the flu?' Are they desperate in some way? Need more NVICP taxes on those shots coming in?

Del Bigree's statement, something to the effect that, we're creating cities of individuals with autism (every year?) comes to mind. That 36,600 thousand increase in 2015 is about five times the size of my home town and several thousand more than the population of the city where currently residing. So I guess that doesn't sound at all like hyperbole.

A point of information, our 33 year old son, Eric gets SSI and Medicaid benefits for these many years and his residential group home in NJ uses it for him as well as reimbursement for their expenses.

My daughter got SSI a couple of months ago, $775 a month. An incredible amount of constant paperwork is involved. But her application for Medicaid has been pending for almost five months. Medicaid, like SSI, demanded proof by two days from the time of notice of the existence of a third-party special needs trust that I copied with personalized information from a Nolo book, so that she have a more comfortable life. The woman at SS said that their GOAL was to keep them under the poverty line. So I gave proof of the existence of the trust at my bank MONTHS ago, but nothing has happened. They said they wanted to see if it were a "liquid asset," but the whole point is to CLEARLY establish that the disabled person has NO right EVER to ANY of the money. A third-person, not a first-person, trust. And I'm sure they're working even as we speak to figure out how to make third party trusts for the benefit of a disabled adult child illegal.

I hope we continue to never see a doctor for any reason, but if we were hit by a bus (and I was hit by an incompetent driver with a LONG record of traffic violations, who totaled my car, almost three weeks ago: it can happen), she'd need medical care, and so far the state is withholding the recognition of her right to it.

I obviously despise the whole system.

How many people out there have had this happen to them? Their child goes to a well known medical facility to be evaluated for Autism and the diagnosis of Autism is confirmed. Child receives speech and occupational therapy for over 5 years for their Autism (insurance covered the services btw)....only to have the original medical facility who gave the diagnosis LOSE the diagnosis from their system?? In other words, at their end, they show that he never had it? If it could happen to us, I am sure it has happened to a lot more people. Those in power are desperate to skew the real numbers.

I've heard very little about how social security is dealing with the skyrocketing numbers of young adults with autism. I'm guessing officials are puzzled if they have swallowed the "there is no epidemic" kool aid.

My son has been deemed too high functioning for SSDI (we are suing.) He went before a social security judge in Iowa in 2014 who failed to act for over a year. His case was transferred to a judge in Kansas and my son was interviewed by phone in September 2015. The new judge made the ruling in January 2016 and cited new 2016 regulations which allows social security disability judges to ignore the opinion of the claimant's treating physician. So the judge ignored the opinion of the primary care doctor who treated my son for 8 years and the therapist who sees my son twice a week for social pragmatic therapy.

I wonder if social security is making new regulations to exclude the large numbers of adults with autism coming before them. Does anyone know more about this?


Awful numbers! But hey -- here is the current deputy director of the CDC, Dr Anne Schuchat, once again denying the vaccination link. If there is anything positive from the interview, she actually described autism as a 'terrible condition'. I am sure the neuro crowd will take exception to this demonizing of autism, and her not seeing that it can be a 'gift'.

Ray Gallup

Thank you very much, John Stone for printing out the statistics I had from the US Department of Education and Social Security. The video, The Naked Gun - "Nothing to see here!" is right on the mark about the autism epidemic which increases year to year. One thing I wanted to say about the US Department of Education statistics is that after 2015 their online data has become jumbled to the point that one can not get the information. Why they do that I have no clear answers from the people I contacted via email at the US Department of Education. They should provide tables like Social Security that are easy to read and like they did up till 2015. If I am able to get clear data from the US Department of Education from 2016 on I will provide it.

And yet Gerberding and Colon Boil et al are all still in their positions ?

Top U.S. scientists forced to resign over allegations of corruption and false studies

One of the most respected scientists in his field, José Baselga, chief medical officer at New York’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, is the published author of hundreds of articles featuring the most cutting-edge cancer research. The New York Times called him “one of the world’s top breast cancer doctors” and “a towering figure in the cancer world.”

On 8 September, two mainstream media publications – The New York Times and Pro Publica – revealed that Baselga had failed to disclose the fact that he had received millions of dollars from Big Pharma and medical corporations.

Scientists and researchers are expected to reveal this type of conflict of interest, since links between pharmaceutical or medical companies and scientists can bias a researcher’s methods and results. Unfortunately, scientific journals do not investigate to establish these types of ties, relying on the scientists themselves to be honorable and reveal them. (Related: Scientific fraud published in reputable medical journals has soared more than 1,700 percent since 2004, says report.)

Having failed to disclose his links to Big Pharma and being outed by the media, Baselga tendered his resignation on September 13.
