New Jersey preschoolers have highest autism rates ever in the nation
California Screamin' Brutal Attack on Boy with Autism

The Garden State Grows.... Autism

Kudzu-on-house-a-30kBy Anne Dachel

Dr. Walter Zahorodny from Rutgers is EVERYWHERE in print and broadcast news right now talking about the ALARMING, GROWING AUTISM RATE IN NJ which he says will continue to get even worse.

Science Daily put it this way.

A new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which uses research by Rutgers University, shows a significant increase in the percentage of 4-year-old children with autism spectrum disorder in New Jersey.

 The study found the rate increased 43 percent from 2010 to 2014 in the state.

The report, released April 11, found that about one in 59 children has autism. New Jersey's rate was the highest of the states studied: one in 35. That puts the national rate of autism at 1.7 percent of the childhood population and New Jersey's autism rate at 3 percent.

The analysis of this young group of children shows U.S. autism rates are continuing to rise without plateauing.

"It's very likely that the next time we survey autism among children, the rate will be even higher," [Zahorodny] said....

The researchers can't explain why autism rates have increased across the United States. Factors associated with a higher risk include advanced parental age (children of parents over age 30 have heightened risk), maternal illness during pregnancy, genetic mutations, birth before 37 weeks gestation and multiple births.

"These are true influences exerting an effect, but they are not enough to explain the high rate of autism prevalence," said Zahorodny. "There are still undefined environmental risks that contribute to this significant increase, factors that could affect a child in its development in utero or related to birth complications or to the newborn period. We need more research into non-genetic triggers for autism."

IT IS DESPICABLE, in my opinion, for this medical expert to make these idiotic claims about causation.

IN 2012 on  NY radio he admitted that YES, VACCINES ARE LINKED TO AUTISM.  I wrote about it 2015.

Media Heats Up on Vaccine Debate

Back in April, 2012, Zahorodny was featured on the Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC radio.

During the interview, the host brought up research on the possible causes for autism and he made this comment"I guess we know what they aren't, for instance, childhood vaccines, right?"

This was Zahorodny's stunning response: "Vaccines don't play a significant role in autism increasing. Some small number of children probably do have autism because of an adverse vaccine reaction, but they don't make for the overall rise. Similarly, thimerosal, the additive in vaccines which was almost entirely out of the picture by 2000, which was when our children in the '08 study were born. So these kids, which would have seen declining autism prevalence if thimerosal was an important risk factor, not increasing prevalence. So I rule those two things out. There are other factors that would be more likely at play-demographical factors related to parents' age and other factors linked to that."

So a "small number of children" have autism because of their vaccines.  Shouldn't we all be concerned? 

While Zahorondny's claim that thimerosal was removed by 2000 is clearly wrong, his admission that yes, some kids really do become autistic after vaccinations, was alarming.

So how much of the rate increase is because of the vaccines children receive?

Just like DeStefano, Armaral contradicted himself on tape.  They both claimed vaccines don't cause autism--except, under certain circumstances, when they do.  Zimmerman was the expert behind the claim of Hannah Poling's vaccine-induced autism, and Zahorondny also admitted a connection.

Andrew Zimmerman, David Amaral, Walter Zahorodny, the CDC's own Frank DeStefano--in their own words, there is a link.

Autism numbers in 2019 are now 'ALARMING,' 'SHOCKING' according to Zahorodny.  They are headed to get even MORE alarming and shocking in the coming years. (What? Like 10 percent of kids? 20 percent? When will anyone really worry about autism?)


I suspect that the New Jersey findings will quickly disappear. The media will once again overwhelmingly report that all the autism is simply better diagnosing/greater awareness/nothing to worry about.  Nothing alarming. Nothing really shocking.

Anne is absolutely correct to call this spade a spade.

Stating that "vaccines don't play a significant role in autism increasing" is akin to stating that drinking alcohol before getting behind the wheel doesn't play a significant role in injuries and deaths due to drunk drivers.

Thank you, Anne, for exposing that which needs to be exposed. Trying to keep a lid on THE major cause of autism, and so many other new horrible epidemics of childhood, is unethical and sinister.


Millions more of cases of autism = better diagnosis

A few more cases of measles = health crisis

To Laura Hayes, 4Bobby, All,

Here's a brief piece by Jon Rappoport (investigative reporter); His blog is well worth reading as he reveals a wide array of medical corruption:


@Laura Hayes
Thanks for the link. Outstanding! Definitely worth watching and sharing!


Well I am pleased to know that some one in the CDC is a good guy and working hard. Walter Zahorodny . God in heaven knows we need good guys. plenty of them, and working fast!

A friend is going to have a baby in October, and his wife who was an epileptic (wonder why) was able to get off the meds two years ago. I gave him the heads up today about the Hep B, and warned him that they will threaten to take his baby away if he does not comply. That has happened to another young friend of mine, already and she allowed it.

I want to thank everyone that brings us all this information; from the bottom of my heart. At least I am not alone, and give in to thinking, as I so often use to do. that this can not be really happening? Yeah, I am indeed crazy conspiracy, crazy prepper; and won the lottery of one in 11,000. It was never 1 in a million even back in 1986 cause that is what they had on the waiver I signed at the health department for my son. That was old data though cause I found out later that it was probably closer to 1 out of 250. IT being vaccine reaction, injury, seizures, brain damage, but never said autism. I would not have known what that was at the time anyway. If not for the leaders in this I would still probably just keep my mouth shut tight so others around me don't know how insane I am.

I am giving that friend the "Vaccine 2.0" book here in the next few days. I bought it for another friend having a grandchild and just never did give it to them. However; since they have another grown son with Asperger's, and heard me talk (I learned to be brave) , I thought they already knew.

Thank you all for giving me the knowledge and with it the bravery to speak.


".. The researchers can't explain why autism rates have increased across the United States. "

Kind of like a team of mechanics who can't locate a rattle in your engine, because they spent all day looking for it in the trunk.

The one thing that appears to be causing autism, is the one thing that appears to be off limits to any form of honest research.


I agree with Bob Moffit at the injustice of saying "the only thing to be truly alarmed about is Measles. The only thing really shocking is the number of unvaccinated children." I think his analogy to Emperor Nero violin fiddling while Rome burned is a great analogy to our current autism crisis. I have friends whose mother's had them when they were in their forties and they are perfectly normal so that is a fraud excuse for the rise in autism rates around the world. There is no such thing as a genetic epidemic and there never will be. This is also made up hogwash. Again we need RESEARCH to find the answers to the cause and CURE of the huge numbers of people with an autism diagnosis.


The current rate of 1 in 59 children with autism and 1 in 35 with autism should be cause for a national emergency crisis NOW! They are quoted as saying that the rates will continue to increase in the future- 1 in 25, 1 in 15, 1 in 10, 1 in 5 and then society will collapse under the strain of how to support this huge increase of the numbers of people with autism. The families will be left with the staggering responsibility of what to do when their children become adults. My son is already an adult and was born in the mid 80s at the very early stages of the autism epidemic. I, as well as countless families I know, are now in the same position and we all want to know what is going to be done for our children who already have been in this situation for years. We, the families, are suffering and worried sick about the future for our children. We need RESEARCH from qualified professionals around the world to find out what has caused this tragedy to happen and develop medications that will REVERSE THE DAMAGE done do our children. We have the technology and it can be done NOW. We can not lose whole generations to the very real autism epidemic. Our children deserve a chance at a future normal life.

Some of the best vaccine testimony I have ever heard, delivered in less than 5 minutes, from Canada. Please share!

Judith Zimmerman

Want to give kudos to Walter for spreading the word about staggering autism rate increases. The significant tragedy about this latest publication by the CDC is how the CDC continues to hide and downplay the autism epidemic. The CDC is willing to use Utah prevalence data that is known to contain massive errors. Hope that becomes a focus of ongoing stories.

Kathy Sincere

At this point in time we must realize THERE ARE NO GOOD GUYS. They are all incredibly stupid or evil, or both....

Mark Blaxill

Walter is one of the good guys Anne. This attack on him is unfair.

David m burd

Beginning 2011 the ACIP (CDC's Advisory Committee for Immunization Practice) began pushing/urging pregnant American women to get the DTaP shot, this vaccine containing neurotoxic Aluminum thus crossing into their fetus, along with the neurotoxic Thimerosal-containing flu shot also coerced onto pregnant women and also reaching their fetus.

The latest surveys document almost 50% of pregnant women in the U.S. now receive both neurotoxic vaccines. These takes medical criminality in the U.S. to ever new highs.

Grace Green

A "small number of children do have autism because of an adverse vaccine reaction, but they don't make for the overall rise." But haven't the number of vaccines given risen during those years? So a rise in the vaccines would cause a rise in the autism numbers! And that confirms the link, according to his own logic.

Bob Moffit

Anne closes: "I suspect that the New Jersey findings will quickly disappear. The media will once again overwhelmingly report that all the autism is simply better diagnosing/greater awareness/nothing to worry about. Nothing alarming. Nothing really shocking."

Nothing alarming. Nothing really shocking. Really?

Indeed, our media today is replete with politicians, public health officials, pediatricians, talking head "pundits" … endlessly screaming the ONLY thing to be truly alarmed about is MEASLES. The ONLY thing really shocking is the number of UNVACCINATED CHILDREN.

We were taught the legend of Emperor Nero playing his violin (fiddling) while a fire destroyed his city of Rome .. as an historical example of the Emperor doing something trivial and irresponsible in the midst of a true emergency, revealing his total lack of concern for his people and his empire.

As for today's modern Nero's .. of which they are too numerous to list .. they continue to ignore the autism fire raging throughout our world .. while they continue to beat the same drums over and over … (factors associated with a higher risk of autism include advanced parental age (children of parents over age 30 have heightened risk), maternal illness during pregnancy, genetic mutations, birth before 37 weeks gestation and multiple births) .. those same drum beats over and over as their
