Autism won't disappear

  • Follow Letters

Autism continues to remain a mystery after two decades to those who call themselves “experts” on the disorder. They don’t know what causes it, how to cure it or how many are actually affected.

Yet, the American Psychiatric Association plans to revise its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders by early 2013. The proposed changes will give a new definition for autism, thereby removing Asperger syndrome and pervasive developmental disorder (not otherwise specified) from the equation.

Why are authorities making this change? The suspected reason is to make the ever-increasing numbers disappear like the act of a magician waving a wand. Then if a cause or cure cannot be found, there is no problem. Costs in services will lower considerably at the state and local levels.

However, the real tragedy is that tens of thousands of children and adults will lose their services. Of course the numbers will not go away with this move, either.

I have wondered why autism appeared in the DSM to begin with. It is not a mental disorder. Autism is a metabolic disorder affecting nearly every organ in the body. Psychiatrists need to give up control of autism spectrum disorders, and better sooner than later.

Slight failure to mention

Slight failure to mention that one of the major causes of the growth in the incidence of Autism was the inclusion of Asperger's and other disorders. I would say that those with a real MD or PhD behind their names know quite a bit more on the subject than quack websites and Jenny McCarthy.

It is an emotionally charged

It is an emotionally charged issue so often logic goes out the window. I've known PhD's and MD's mention a concern about vaccines and autism even though they know there is absolutely no link-mainly because they have an autistic child and they are frustrated.

Two points. (1) there is a

Two points.

(1) there is a mountain of data on the etiology of autism. Identifying the cells and molecules involved in forming synapses that when defective cause autism. Of course this all happens early in embryonic development and thus some sites ignore this data.

(2) the key thing is to correctly diagnosis the kids. No one is served by having kids without autism getting autism services.

Surely we can all agree that these kids need to be correctly diagnosed and not given an autism diagnosis when it is wrong...

W & N is making

W & N is making assertions,that he cannot back up. Thimerosal is a mutagenic it is being given to pregnant women through the ( flu vacc. ) The MSDS says just that,Thimerosal is a mutagenic meaning it can (mutate a child's genes)

If a pregnant woman, is exposed to Thimerosal it can cross the
placenta and if that happens the child could suffer mild to severe
mental retardation.

So says, the Manufacturers MSDS of Thimerosal.

It could very well be that

It could very well be that the people making the change realize that Asperger's is over diagnosed. Techfan is correct.

W & N you say, we should go

W & N you say, we should go to prison. And what of the people, who poisoned the children by accident. And after they learned what they did, decide the numbers will plummet on almost all chronic diseases especially Autism. That is, if it is removed to abruptly.

So, they decide we will just keep the mercury going in the children. But they cannot use regular vaccines anymore, to deliver the heavy metal.

So we will declare, that pregnant women and children 6 mos. to 2 yr's must get their flu shots. Even if they contain, the exact same mercury they just took out.

In case you did not catch that, they just decided after removing the mercury based preservative Thimerosal for a prudent measure.

That they would go, right back into the children. Even, earlier.

All the while knowing this; That children 6 mos. to 2 yr's get absolutely not benefit from the inactivated flu vaccine, except that of a placebo effect. As per,the work done by the Cochrane Collaboration the UK's IOM.

The CDC Dir., also knew, that on the Manufacturer safety data sheet of the mercury based preservative that was used in most children's vaccines. The product [ Thimerosal ] it states that pregnant women
are never supposed to be exposed to Thimerosal for it can cross the placenta and go into the baby and cause mild to severe retardation.

Even if they take out all minor chronic diseases present in our children today example ADD, ADHD, in the new DSM V Autism still remains an event of catastrophic cost in human suffering and in dollars. It has been estimated at 3.2 to 5 million dollars for each effected child. per Michael Ganz of Harvard Univ. He went on to say, $200 to $400 billion dollars every year for life long care cost when all is said and done. He did say, this is a conservative estimate.

Premeditated, seems to come to mind here. And you think we! should go to prison?

These people, have put singlehandedly a large portion of the economy of this Nation in jeopardy because they could not! or would not! Admit that they had made a huge error in allowing Mercury in children's vaccines. Reason, be it Pride or Arrogance.Make no mistake they are the reason that the children are sick and suffering here in the US.

If that is not enough proof, how about a meeting called Simpson Wood where those in attendance from the FDA CDC AAP and all of the vaccine manufacturer's were discussing that you would not want to ever go any earlier with the Thimerosal or you would most certainly get more out comes. That, appears to be very clear, the consensus that day was to not! go any earlier. That is, unless the goal is to produce more outcomes?

Because, it was discussed that the earlier you go with the Mercury, the more vulnerable to neurological damage the child's brain would be.

Here's one for you W an N, it's said if you put a few drops of Mercury in a
lake it will be contaminated. Since the child's brain is 80 % water, how
is it you can put 10's of thousands of ppb of [injected] mercury by just
1 hep - b at birth and do no! damage? That appears to be impossible,
considering the size of a child's brain when in comparison to the size of
a lake.

Even a small one.

Don't bother trying to say, it does not cross the BBB because an NIH study done on baby primates revealed. It! the Vaccineal Mercury, Thimerosal crosses the BBB easier than does the fish mercury.

Slikker from the FDA said, it not only crosses the BBB. But the placental barrier also.

And then this, the Manufacturer states on their own MSDS that the Mercury based preservative Thimerosal is accumulative in the body,
and it targets the organs of the body in particular the brain and the
lining around the brain. Now how did this ever! get in a vaccine programs vaccines. For our most precious resource. Our American Children?

Answer, the maker hired a Dr. to shoot ethyl-mercury in 22 people dying of Meningitis. Here's where it gets real hard to believe. According to a proud statement, on the FDA's website about this study they the 22 people dying of meningitis were only followed and observed for what the FDA reports as 1 day.

It was then, grandfathered in by the FDA.

W & N why would the manufacturer say it targets "in particular the Brain and the lining around the brain"? It appears, it must cross the BBB in order to target the Brain.

And, I would assume that those who made this preservative Thimerosal could be trusted to know their own product and of it's known biological characteristics. Don't you think?

I suppose I'd be looking to blame someone too if my child were autistic.

A Cost-Benefit Analysis of

A Cost-Benefit Analysis of the current Vaccine program;

Is it really worth, a 1 in 68 roll of the dice if it's a boy? That he may live for ever in someone elses care, never to be going to collage. No prom or driving a car, may never have a friend. Except the parents, you may never go on family vacations again. Or for that matter, you may never eat out in public ever again.
All meals to go. No empty nest, ever!

Oh! I left out the best part, he may never potty train. In that case you may spend 40 thousand dollars in diapers and wet wipes by the time he was 16 as we did. And when he reaches 21 yrs of age, you may still
be changing diapers and cleaning diaper stuffing and pop of the walls and floors.

And you or somebody will, for the rest of his life. You will never retire, you will never have a retirement.
You may however! have to work the rest of your life. All of your life! And remember, no vacations. No going to relatives houses, on holidays.

After all, they don't want your child tearing up their house the way he tore up yours. In fact, all family may abandon you, if you are lucky it's you and your wife. If your not, and one leaves. You are left with all this to do, by your self. [ Forever ] and [ ever ]

I bet that the vaccines, are losing a little luster by now. That is, if you can comprehend what you just read.

I struggled, whether to put this in. Thinking, God might think I want him to take my son. That's the last thing, on my mind. You see, I love him! or I would not be living in this man made night mare of Autism. Here, is what I struggled with putting down. That you hope and you pray, he does not out live you. So he does not have to go, into the system that created him. With their Oh! so safe vaccine program.

The vaccine program, in the current form and schedule. Is at best a crap shoot, and a very dangerous game off Russian Roulette for some children.

You could just as well be putting 1 bullet named Autism in a revolver, with 68 chambers. Spinning it and pulling the trigger. Bang! a dependent child for life.

ADD ADHD and other neurological problems, that's a different matter and it gets a lot worse prevalence wise. In the US. 1 in every 5 children has a neurological learning disability.

The CDC admitted, 1 in 5 women of child bearing age has a Mercury body burden. Is that the same 1 in 5, with the disabled children?

If your child is Autistic, and not like this. [Thank your God] but please, do not criticize what you are not living. For, we all do not have a rain man child. And, oh! I forgot, if you think the vaccine compensation program is ever going to be helping you with your vaccine injured child. Think again.

Although, this is what Senator Frist said concerning the National Vaccine compensation program;

"I don't know why these parents want to sue the vaccine makers? there is a system created to catch these children as a safety net"

It skillfully watches the baby go up and when it's about to catch the baby (as Senator Frist said) It's so cruelly pulled back, by very corrupt evil people. The National vaccine injury compensation program is 100 % corrupted. It's more corrupted than organized crime, in fact they make organized crime look like the good guys.

I'm called anti vaccine, that's not at all true. You see, I have the after math to prove other wise. Would I vaccinate now? Hell no! not ever again. I mean really, if you are told the child's bath water contains bubble bath. Sure, jump in son. Then later you find out, it contained acid also. To late, acid does not scrub off. Just like Mercury, does not jump out of the body. It targets the organs of the body, in particular the brain and the lining around the brain.
