Reviewing Editor: James Lyons-Weiler, PhD, Editor-in-Chief


As the rates of diagnosed autism spectrum disorders (ASD) reach unprecedented levels, numerous analyses have attempted to model, quantify, and forecast the societal cost of ASD at the country level. These forecast models focus on costs by category and over the lifespan, but place far less emphasis on the effect of rising ASD rates on societal costs over time. Most models make the unsupported assumption that rates have remained constant. As a result, these models obscure understanding and suppress awareness of the most urgent societal issues that surround rising ASD prevalence. Furthermore, they overstate the current costs incurred for the population of adults with ASD, while simultaneously and dramatically underestimating the magnitude of future costs as the ASD population increases. The cost of ASD in the U.S. is estimated here using a forecast model that for the first time accounts for the true historical increase in ASD. Model inputs include ASD prevalence, census population projections, six cost categories, ten age brackets, inflation projections, and three future prevalence scenarios. Current ASD costs are somewhat lower and projected future costs are much higher than other societal cost of autism models. In this model, total base-case costs of $223 (175–271) billion/year are estimated in 2020; $589 billion/year in 2030, $1.36 trillion/year in 2040, and $5.54 (4.29–6.78) trillion/year by 2060, with substantial potential savings through ASD prevention via identifying and better regulating environmental factors that increase autism risk. This tsunami of rapidly increasing costs raises pressing policy questions. Rising prevalence, the shift from child to adult-dominated costs, the transfer of costs from parents onto government, and the soaring total costs demand an urgent focus on prevention strategies.

The Studies the CDC Refuses to Do

This book is based on over one hundred studies in the peer-reviewed literature that consider vaccinated versus unvaccinated populations. Each study is analyzed, and health differences among infants, children, and adults who have been vaccinated and those who have not are presented and put in context.

Given the massive push to vaccinate the entire global population, this book is timely and necessary for individuals to make informed choices for themselves and their families.

Wuhan bioweapons coverThe Wuhan Cover-Up: And the Terrifying Bioweapons Arms Race (Children’s Health Defense)
By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

“Whenever I read, listen to, or debate Bobby, I learn something new and change my mind on at least one or two issues, while vehemently disagreeing with many others. Both the agreements and disagreements stimulate my thinking and emotions, even when they make me angry or concerned. Read him and make up your own minds." —Alan Dershowitz

“The Wuhan Cover-Up will blow out of the water the international disinformation campaign by US and Chinese government officials and their bribed scientists that COVID-19 somehow magically jumped out of the Wuhan wet market. Kennedy’s book will provide the ammunition needed for us lawyers to hold them all legally accountable for this Nuremberg Crime against Humanity.” —Professor Francis A. Boyle, author of the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989



Thank you Emma for the Weinstein interview.


Speaking of "Who really runs the world?"

Tucker Carlson's latest interview with Brett Weinstein exposes what the WHO is currently up to. MUST SEE:

Mayor Adams is kicking out the border crossers to make room in the 5 star hotels for the adult autistic community....NOT!

In case you were wondering...
Who Are They? Who really runs the world?


Oh, and Will

Open-access journal Let us define what that means.

Set of principles and a range of practices through which research outputs are distributed online, free of access charges or other barriers.[

You are welcome, cause I see you did not know what that meant and did not know how to do a search engine and look up the definition.


Okay the last four times, it has taken me to the right study. The other was on the NIH website. It told me nothing except the three subsets of autism. Summary said that if we reduce RRBI then autism symptoms will improve.

I was wondering what the heck when I was reading it.


Strangest thing, I went to the link and hit full text and it took me to - Well I spent two hours reading it. I think I got sent to the wrong study?


RRBI stands for Repetitive, Rigidity, Fixation, and Resistance to Change. Is that correct?


Unfortunately this well intended report could have nefarious consequences.

Eugenics supporting Globalists could use a paper such as this to advertise to the public an identified group of "useless eaters" who threaten their financial stability. This tactic was used in Nazi Germany on the post WWI economically crushed citizenry. They were persuaded to support their euthanasia programs. According to this research paper, Canada is already well on its way:

"In June, 2016 euthanasia was decriminalized in Canada in the format of a Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) program (1). Medical Assistance in Dying is an umbrella term that includes two options: clinician-administered medical assistance in dying and self-administered medical assistance in dying (1). Medical Assistance in Dying will likely expand to include mature minors. Mature minors are typically children 18 years or younger who have the medical capacity to make particular medical decisions about their health (2). These decisions are often made in a relational context in which the mature minor’s family and caregivers are involved (2)."


Most of that money mentioned above is not used to help those with autism, neither is other money reported elsewhere used to help people with "disabilities" and mental illnesses in general. It is lost in a sea of corporate greed and government bureaucracy.
ABA provider's CEO and high-level employees make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year while those with autism are stuck on affordable housing waitlists and waitlists for the services supposedly provided by the ABA provider in the first place. The regional center( California local developmental disabilities services providing agency) wastes so much money on providers that overcharge taxpayers and drop clients for disputes like sheltered workshop pay or "behavior" issues.
