AUTISM RATES IN THE U.S. CONTINUE TO SKYROCKET -- 1 IN 68 CHILDREN NOW HAVE AUTISM

Much of this article is full of shit as they refuse to deal with the elephant in the living room - i.e., VACCINES!!!


However despite the lamestream media's refusal to tell the bloody truth, many Americans are now seeing vaccines for what they really are -- BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS. The escalating rate of damaged children in the U.S. has NOTHING to do with better diagnosis and everything to do with the fact that they are being deliberately poisoned.


And indeed, this poisoning begins while they are in the womb with ignorant mothers choosing to get vaccinated during pregnancy.

It's wakey wakey time people. How many lives have to be destroyed before Americans say NO MORE!!!

Autism rates soar, now affects 1 in 68 children
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/03/27/autism-rates-rise/6957815/

"Autism rates climbed nearly 30% between 2008 and 2010 and have more than doubled since the turn of the century, according to a new study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The condition is now believed to affect one of every 68 8-year-olds – up from one in 88 just two years earlier.

That means virtually every grade in every elementary school has at least one child with autism – a seemingly astonishing rise for a condition that was nearly unheard of a generation ago.

What's still unknown is the driver of that increase. Many experts believe the rise is largely due to better awareness and diagnosis rather than a true increase in the number of children with the condition.

"We don't know the extent those factors explain in terms of the increase, but we clearly know they do play a role," said Coleen Boyle, director of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities at the CDC. "Our system tells us what's going on. It (only) gives us clues as to the why."

The aging of parents is also known to be a factor; the chances of autism increase with the age of parents at conception.

"But that's not the whole story is it?" said Robert Ring, chief science officer for Autism Speaks, a research and advocacy group. Whether something in the environment could be causing the uptick remains "the million-dollar question," Ring said.

Despite their concern, experts said they were not surprised by the increase, because other data had suggested the numbers would continue to climb. In New Jersey, for instance, autism rates were 50% higher than in the rest of the nation in 2000, and they remained that much higher in 2010 – suggesting the national rates will continue to rise to catch up, said Walter Zahorodny, a psychologist who directs the New Jersey Autism Study. "To me it seems like autism prevalence can only get higher," he said.

The new study also showed that blacks continue to lag behind whites and Hispanics in diagnoses. Zahorodny, also an assistant professor at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, said the gap has persisted for so long that he thinks it may be real – that blacks may be less vulnerable to autism for some unknown reason. Others are quicker to blame lack of medical access for the difference.

"We know that there are significant under-diagnosis problems in minority communities and among women and girls," said Ari Ne'eman, a member of the National Council on Disability and president of the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network. The group tries to empower autistic people to advocate for themselves. The new CDC numbers show five times more boys with autism than girls. The girls and blacks who have intellectual disabilities as well as autism are getting counted, but the smarter kids are not, said Ne'eman, who has autism himself. "Many of the cases that are easier to miss are being missed in those populations."

To be diagnosed on autism spectrum, someone must have deficits in three areas: communications, social skills and typical behavior. Roughly one-third of the children in the CDC study also had intellectual deficits, with the remainder showing normal or above-average intelligence.

To come up with its new figures, the CDC reviewed medical and school records from 2010 at 11 different sites across the country. There is a huge range in autism prevalence across those sites, from one child in 175 found with autism in Alabama, to one in 46 in New Jersey. Boyle said the difference may be explained, at least in part, by differences in community resources for identifying and serving children with autism. Other reporting sites were in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Utah and Wisconsin.

The CDC has used the same method to determine autism prevalence every two years since 2000, showing a 120% increase in autism rates between 2000 and 2010.

The average age a child is diagnosed with autism has fallen, but remains above age 4 – though diagnosis is possible by age 2. Research suggests that the earlier a child with autism receives therapy the better the chance of limiting their deficits.

The message to parents is that if they have concerns about their child's early play, speech or movement, they should raise those concerns with with doctors and caregivers, Boyle said.

Prevalence rates quickly become fodder for politics. Several members of Congress and advocacy groups took the opportunity Thursday to promote continued funding for autism treatment and research. The $780 million Combatting Autism Act is currently up for renewal.

"This is a loud message to people in Washington that we need leadership here," said Liz Feld, president of Autism Speaks. "A national strategy that addresses all the needs of the autism community across the lifespan is what is needed now more than ever."

Others criticized the suggestion that the rising numbers reflect an "epidemic" of autism. Instead, Ne'eman argued: "Autism is something that we're born with, that always existed."

New Autism Study Raises More Questions About the Safety of Vaccines

Autism beings in the womb...end of story? - LivingWhole.org

I already know this post is going to spark controversy. I’m not a huge fan of controversy but I am realistic, logical, and have a good amount of common sense and I am usually the one exposing the elephant in the room, especially if it needs to be talked about. This post, is about one of those elephants. As soon as autism and vaccines are mentioned in the same sentence the war march music is queued. One side will feel vindicated, the other will be down-right mad, but despite all of that, our kids deserve this discourse. We deserve this discourse. So let’s not cue the music just yet.

Autism begins in the womb…end of story?
There’s a new study out that suggests autism begins in the womb. You can’t miss it because it’s been a top story on every news venue for the last week. With this new study came re-energized backlash and an attempt to take the focus off of vaccinations as a probable cause:

“See? I told you vaccines don’t cause autism. It starts in the womb! This study proves it. Case closed. Go home, sit down, shut up, and vaccinate your kid.”

Yes, because the risk of autism is the only reason I don’t vaccinate my child. I sure hope nobody read about this study and decided to take their kids for shots the next day. I have a problem with this type of rhetoric and to be honest, it scares me that people are so quick to shut the door on something as serious as autism. This study doesn’t “close the case,” it pushes it wide open. If you are questioning vaccines, or think vaccines may be linked to autism, this study actually supports that premise and makes it even more imperative that we start objectively questioning everything that gets injected into our bodies with more scrutiny.

The study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) is pretty straight-forward but contains a lot of big words. Here’s the jist: Researchers did a small explorative study analyzing postmortem brain samples of 22 children – 11 with autism and 11 without. They found that 10 of the 11 autistic children had certain brain characteristics (along with 1 of the non-autistic children).

“We observed focal patches of abnormal laminar cytoarchitecture and cortical disorganization of neurons, but not glia, in prefrontal and temporal cortical tissue from 10 of 11 children with autism and from 1 of 11 unaffected children.”

This new study may indeed give clues on how autism develops – but a “small explorative study” involving only 11 autistic children and 11 non-autistic children hardly constitutes enough evidence to hang our hats on – especially when there were two children who did not have the brain samples one would expect them to have.

In comparison, there was a study that showed the presence of measles vaccine-strain virus (from the MMR live virus vaccine) in the guts of twelve autistic children that sparked an international controversy questioning the safety of vaccines. Yes I know it was retracted (and not because his results were wrong but because an individual with ties to the vaccine industry accused Wakefield of being unethical). Yes, I know Wakefield has been exonerated. And no, he didn’t say the MMR vaccine “caused” autism…he simply pointed out the obvious connection – many autistic children have chronic bowel inflammation, and have the vaccine strain of the measles virus in their intestines. What I also know is that his findings were confirmed and duplicated by over 12 world-renowned researchers, in four different countries, and by more than 28 studies but that was deemed insufficient evidence to warrant further investigation – in fact that was deemed to be no evidence at all. I don’t know about you, but the only thing I ever saw on prime time news was a smear campaign.

If the researchers from this new autism study looked for or discovered a vaccine-mealses virus in their samples, you better believe this article wouldn’t have made prime-time. I only brought up the “W” word because despite what you may believe, there’s a bias in our country favoring vaccines and this study proves it. People are so quick to say that vaccines are exonerated based on one, “small explorative” (by their own definition) study. Let’s be real, this study proves nothing, it only raises more questions that demand further studies.

But, for the sake of this post we’re all going to assume that this new study is gold, that it 100% without a doubt proves that autism starts in the womb. In the legal profession we call this a non-contested issue. In a fast-pitch softball game we’d call this a slow pitch. I’m giving it to you. I’m letting you walk to first base. If I don’t, we’ll spend all day trying to find “evidence” to contradict the “evidence.” Instead, we’re going to use the same evidence that’s being used to shut the door on the “autism vaccine debate” to support our position and pressure the mainstream scientific community to look at the real issues. Autism is unacceptable and so are all of the other conditions our kids experience because of what comes through the needle.

So let’s break it down. If autism starts in utero, then vaccines can’t possibly play a role right?
I hate to point out the obvious here but most pregnant women in the United States are vaccinated and receive flu shots while pregnant. According to the CDC, the hepatitis A vaccine, Tdap (a category C drug that has not been tested for fetal or reproductive harm), and influenza vaccines are recommended for pregnant women. Polio, hepatitis B, and meningococal vaccine can also be given. Yellow fever vaccine (a category “C” live virus vaccine never tested for safety in fetuses) can even be given if the “benefits (there are none) outweigh the risks (there are many).”

How do these vaccines effect the development of a fetus? Nobody knows. But we do know from reading the vaccine package inserts, “clinical trials,” and objective studies done, that vaccines in children can cause encephalitis, neurological disorders, and developmental delays and that vaccines have caused the same, along with autism-like symptoms in animals. Is a fetus immune to the same reality? Pregnant women who opt to receive the vaccine are the test subjects – although supporters of the mainstream are going to look the other way if the results aren’t favorable.

In addition, several vaccine package inserts state that a woman should not become pregnant within three months of being vaccinated (see MMR and Varicella inserts). Women go in asking their doctor how they should prepare for pregnancy and the doctor recommends they get vaccinated. Um, problem here…how many doctors have read the package insert themselves – probably very few because I am willing to bet no woman has ever heard of needing to take extra precautions in the bedroom after being vaccinated. Have you?

What happens if she doesn’t and gets pregnant? Well…nobody knows but it is thought that these live viruses that cause fetal abnormalities when injected into pregnant women, cause the same type of abnormalities if still circulating in the body when a woman becomes pregnant – hence the importance of the warning that nobody read.

What caused the abnormal brain samples in the NEJM study? Anything but the vaccines right? To me, it seems vaccines haven’t been ruled out as a possible cause so don’t get your shots just yet.

Ultrasounds, Vaccines, and Autism
There’s another way vaccines could be the final building block that sends a child spiraling into the depths of autism and like vaccines given during pregnancy, this theory also supports the findings of the study. During pregnancy women are subjected to 2-3 ultrasounds minimum (unless you opt out). If you’re high risk you’ll have more or you might be one of those women who get elective scans…just for funzies. No one thinks twice about it.

I’m sure your doctor never informed you of the risks of that “routine” ultrasound but minimal research on this issue would reveal that ultrasounds have not only been linked to autism but have proven to be harmful to a developing brain. The effects of ultrasound waves on the brain show the same abnormalities as discovered in the brain samples of the newest autism study.

Each scan heats surrounding tissues and bones up to six degrees higher than the maximum determined level of safety and since 1993 the FDA has allowed high-output machines to scan babies at eight times the tolerable level without conducting any epidemiological studies. Ultrasounds cause cavitation - where gas pockets in tissues and body fluids form and collapse due to high frequency sound waves. Cells in the brain are very sensitive to cavitation and can divide, migrate, and form too many mini-columns.

This same “cavitation” process via “ultrasonic cleaning” is frequently used to remove rust, dirt, lime scale, grease and tightly adhering service contaminates from watches, surgical instruments, industrial parts, firearms, and electronic equipment. The longer the session the more cavitation occurs. People are now using ultrasound technology to agitate the fat right off of their bodies.

What type of effect do you think this has on the protective coverings of neurons in the developing brain of a fetus? If ultrasounds can dissolve fat right off the body and rust right off of metal than why would anyone naively think ultrasounds can’t strip the protective fat coverings right off of neurons or create a condition of autism susceptibility by “disrupting the cortical laminar architecture in the cortexes” as the NEJM study puts it. If you think I’m overreacting about ultrasounds, find the thousands of women who had what used to be “routine” x-rays during their pregnancy and discover how that one turned out.

Babies aren’t born with autism.
The NEJM study shows that while a condition in the brain makes children susceptible to developing autism it didn’t address a cause. Is it mere coincidence that most children develop symptoms of autism between 15-18 months of age when they receive their scheduled vaccines which include: DTaP, Hib, PCV, IPV, flu shot, MMR, Varicella, and Hep A? In case you were wondering, that’s 12 vaccines people. Twelve vaccines that are not proven save individually, let alone safe to use in conjunction.

There are also two vaccines (varicella and MMR) which are live virus vaccines that have the ability to pass through the blood brain barrier. All children are teething during these formative months and histamines released during teething give these viruses direct access to the brain – brains that as the NEJM showed, are compromised. And then there are vaccine additives – heavy metals, genetic materials from animals, aborted fetal cells injected directly into the blood stream and when not excreted, also have an affinity for the gut and the brain.

What this new study tells me, is that we need to be very careful what we consume, inject, and expose a pregnant body too and what our children are injected with. The administration of vaccines, ultrasounds, (antibiotics that inhibit proper gut flora, genetically modified foods, or any number of things) during pregnancy can create a condition in the brain of a developing baby that makes one more susceptible to developing autism, and a vaccine during infancy or toddlerhood could be the icing on the cake for a child who has this autistic pre-disposition.

Maybe vaccines don’t directly cause autism but numerous studies show a causal relationship that warrants further investigation. This new study doesn’t exonerate vaccines. It makes the likelihood even stronger that there is a connection – whether vaccines are the direct cause or the fuel on an already raging fire."
