"Our investigator Emma, 44, who is autistic herself, said: “I find it alarming that someone who claims to be professional is spreading such fear and misinformation about vaccination.”"
A UK physician took a drubbing in this article that could have been written in 2000:
By the way the 210£ per hour reported as "high paid" is about $270, hardly a queen's ransom for a medical professional's rate. Here OT and Speech can easily charge that amount.
Many of us have been in the autism vaccine injury world for as long as two decades, or more. Back in the day... when BLOGGER and Yahoo Groups ruled the world, there was a group of bloggers with names like Chew, Leach and Baggs who were early adopters of neurodiversity, demanded genuflection before the genetics of autism, dismissal of any and ALL forms of treatment except educational, refusal to even consider that one's diet could affects one's functioning and of course, that autism was ANYTHING other than a MAN MADE EPIDEMIC. Ms. Chew had a son named Charlie, I met them both ten years ago at an event. Mr. Leach was himself in the UK, and he had a daughter on the spectrum. And all these years later, after they pilloried Age of Autism, Dan, Mark, me and so many of our strongest friends, their blogs are long gone, a relic of another era. That said, I hope their children are healthy and well. And safe. Always.
From the article:
A self-proclaimed autism expert told a mum that studies suggest the MMR jab is linked to the condition.
The same £210-an-hour guru then claimed child autism could be alleviated by an exclusion diet which includes organic chicken nuggets...
...But Amet’s comments reflect the views of the thousands of “anti-vaxxers” who spread conspiracy theories about the MMR jab and autism online.
One in every 100 children in the UK has some form of autism. There is no known medical cure.
Our probe was triggered when a parent raised concerns about the work of Amet’s clinic – Autism Treatment Plus – which claims to have improved the development of 80 per cent of its patients.
As part of our investigation, Emma Dalmayne – who has two autistic children – posed as worried mum Petra to discuss fictional Raye, seven.
In a video consultation, Amet pushed the supposed link between autism and the measles, mumps and rubella vaccination – fears which medical studies have debunked.
She then went on to make unproven claims about how the condition can be alleviated by changing a child’s diet. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has discredited this as a way of managing autism in young people.
