this is one of the main lies to hide the vaccine
connection.http://www.whale.to/a/autism_diagnosis.html

"So the first lie to remember today is this: autism is ancient.
It's
not ancient, it's new." ------Mark Blaxill, MBA



So havind a Masters in Business Administration makes him an expert
in
the history of neurology?



History of neurology?

No one needs to know a thing about neurology to recognize or be
around
the autistic.

That is, unless you are inferring that autism is secretive disease
that
a Doctor must "discover" and thus treat.


Wow... you are as much an expert as someone with an MBA!


Just as everyone here thought. You don't even know what an autistic
is
or the symptoms.

I have known more autistic folks than you can count (assuming you have
at
least 10 fingers)


Keep it up, pharma toad, you support John more and more.

I can see it now. You fall and break your arm. Someone comes along
an
comments that your arm is broken and offers help. You response is,
"What
the hell do you know, you're just a store clerk"


If you were the store clerk (and I suspect that you are), I would
definitely say "STAY AWAY!!!"... I would not want someone of your less
than common sense and intellectual buffoonery moving a broken limb.


I have also never claimed to be anything but an aerospace engineer.

So, nothing logical.

Aerospace Engineer doesn't say anything except the ability to get
through
a
specialized engineering regimin. Of course that's nothing to sneeze at.
I hired and fired a lot in your regimin as an engineering manager and
director. Of course that has nothing to do with anything here, as I
have
been trying to point out.

I am NOT weighing in on the arguments of the "causes" of autism. I just
know that it is far more prevalent now than ever before in history. I
am
not speaking of total numbers, which would be obvious, but percentage of
population and especially a "healthy" population.

REASONS (things that are different now than 50 to 150 years ago)

1. MUCH more sugar in young diets
2. less vegetables in young diets
3. Vaccinations of all types.
4. Women are skinnier at child birth and actually try to prevent the
"normal" two to three times the babies weight gain.
5. Less breast feeding (This could possibly be the milk or the holding
for
prolonged periods)
6. Less dietary "C".
7. Less sunlight
8. Hydrocarbons in the air

Some are a real strech, but none-the-less differences.

Personnaly, I would put 1, 4, 5 at the top of the list.
Why? There are many other maladies resultant.

Any "engineer" can make a "statistical" case for any of the above.
REAL doctors or medical community would be separating historic and
individualistic data, rather than off the top yes or no or defending
their
practice of using or not insisting a certain regimin.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello,
You left out such things such as the higher levels of "heavy metals" in
our environment. For example, fish in many rivers and lakes have high
levels of methylmercury which is the most dangerous type of mercury. I
believe that
number 8 should be at the top of your list.
Jason
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"possibly" and mercury from a million sources.
The main reason I question it involvement is that people breathed MUCH
higher levels of smoke, carbon monoxide and particle hydrocarbons 60 years
ago.

"Fish" are a minor source and have many neurological benefits from Omega 3
and certain amino acids.
I also forgot aluminum from aluminum cookware (mother or child)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello,
Good points--I also forgot cookware. My memory is perfect but recall
reading stories in magazines and newspaper about the high levels of
mercury found in fish. In some cities, they do not allow people to fish in
those rivers due to the dangerous levels of mercury found in those fish.
You may have heard about the mercury catastrophe in Minamata Bay, Japan.
People ingested methylmercury
contaminated fish. It led to neurologic defects. Pregnant women are
advised by doctors to not eat fish.
Jason
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The only warning I have heard of from doctors regarding fish is to buy wild
Alaskan Salmon without color added.
Of course doctors saying anything about nutrients or diet other than the
canned blather (low fat) is rare.

Speaking of autism, I read an excellent book about it: Curious Incident of
the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon. Excellent book.

I usually catch up on reading in the summer and this year my list is
soooooooo long it cannot bear another entry.

That one is worth squeezing onto your list regardless; chuck something
else off. Honest.

It's an excellent story and told from the viewpoint of the autistic
child; I'd love to know how accurate the portrayal is.

Even better, read one of the books Temple Grandin has written. I don't
have them in front of me right now, but these are true, 1st person
accounts of life as an autistic person. Really revealing.

You wouldn't think so. Furthermore, Jason seems to have been saying
that since there is so much mercury from other sources, one wouldn't
expect the rates of autism in the population to decrease on the
removal
of thimerosal from vaccines even if the mercury/autism theory were
fact
instead of unsupported theory.

Which is to say that it is an insignificant factor in mercury
exposure,
at least until major factors have been removed. If thimerosal makes
*no
difference* to autism rates, then the benefits of using the
preservative outweigh the disadvantages (which appear to be none) in
that situation.

Don't get me wrong. The tiny bit of mercury in vaccines has never been
shown
to do any harm at the doses used. In the US and other developed
countries,
it seems like it would be a lot better if all forms of mercury were
removed
from the vaccines. Other preservatives can be used, and there is a
theoretical risk of having mercury in vaccines. Clearly, the benefits
of the
vaccine with thimerasol clearly outweigh the tiny risks of the
vaccines,
but, I think vaccines would be a bit safer if they didn't have mercury
in
them.

So, personally, I would prefer that mercury were removed from all
vaccines.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ All other things being equal, why not?
And, of course, it more or less
has been. It seems, however, that the anti-vac crowd just move on to
finding another reason to try and deny kids vaccination. MMR/autism,
MMR/SIDS. The lack of evidence doesn't bother them, but the worry with
all the scaremongering is rates of vaccination. And that's a worry for
the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cathy,
I am not part of the anti-vac crowd. I hope that the anti-vac crowd does
NOT
deny kids vaccinations.

But they do.

If so, they would lose lots of members.

No, they won't. They oppose vaccines which have never and vaccines that no
longer contain any mercury in any form whatsoever. They want vaccines
banned, period. There is a reason why these people are referred to as
insane.

Who is they?

Just look at their resistance against the cervical cancer vaccine - there
it's 'promoting sexual promiscuity'. Or look at the Yurko case - there
vaccines were said to cause shaken baby syndrome.

Once they win that battle, the next battle will be much more difficult
--keeping fish from becoming contaminated with mercury.

At least you seem sincere about removing any possible exposure to mercury
from all sources. And not just mercury, all other heavy metals. Which
makes you an order of magnitude more honest than the anti-vac crowd.

I can only hope so since my agenda is protecting children from mercury
and
other heavy metals. I am in favor of vaccines and would prefer they do
not
contain mercury. Even Jeff seems to believe that it would be a good thing
if mercury was removed from vaccines.

But not (as far as I can tell) because he sees a thimerosal-autism link,
but to err on the side of caution. And maybe to remove an argument from
the arsenal of the anti-vac crowd.

People don't necessarily think logically about some things. Medicine and

This points to an inability to examine evidence and think.

John,
Thanks for your post. Thanks also for your concern for children. I do
believe (but have NO proof) that there were autistic children during those
years before we had any vaccines. Let's assume that mercury is the cause
of autism. If that is true, it means that some of those children (that
lived in ancient times) would have developed autism if they were exposed
to mercury. Since there were NO vaccines containing mercury in those
days--the rates of autism would have been lower in those days. The type of
mercury in fish (methylmercury) is even more dangerous than the type of
mercury in thimerosal.
Jason

I don't think there were actually, nothing to speak of, it is a great lie to
save the vaccine industry. We have 500,000 ASD people in the UK, that is
some figure, so if they can find one then they hope we will ignore the huge
epidemic and its connection to vaccines. It just panders to their
deception.

There are autistic kids who didn't have any vaccines, there is some
connection with mercury amalgam, but the huge numbers we have now, 1 in 166
ASD, 1 in 68 in some areas, the only real suspect is vaccination. We now
have something like 28 vaccines, all poisons.

Most of the kids may have avoided ASD without the vaccine burden. I know
mercury using dentists have kids with deformities but I haven't heard of any
with autism.

And the combination of poisons all given on the same day,
mercury/antibiotic/aluminium/live viruses:

Another important factor with regard to mercury on the mind, which officials
at the CDC, FDA and the professors in the IOM do not consider, is
synergistic toxicity - mercury's enhanced effect when other poisons are
present. A small dose of mercury that kills 1 in 100 rats and a dose of
aluminum that will kill 1 in 100 rats, when combined have a striking effect:
all the rats die. Doses of mercury that have a 1 percent mortality will have
a 100 percent mortality rate if some aluminum is there. Vaccines contain
aluminum. Mercury on the Mind by Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD
http://www.whale.to/vaccine/quotes19.html

"As a clinician, my current belief which guides my practice with these
children is that any child given the HepB vaccination at birth and
subsequent boosters along with DPT has received unacceptable levels of
neurotoxin in the form of the ethyl mercury in the thimerosal preservative
used in the vaccine. In any child with a genetic immune susceptibility
(probably about one in six) this sets off a series of events that injure the
brain-gut-immune system. By the time they are ready to receive the MMR
vaccination, their immune system is so impaired in a great number of these
children that the triple vaccine cannot be handled by the now dysfunctional
immune system and they begin their obvious descent into the autistic
spectrum disorder."---Jaquelyn McCandless, M.D

There were some cases, as mercury has been around for some time, and other
poisons

This is from a researcher, so I am changing the autism is not knew, to

Autism increase due to 'change in' or 'better diagnosis' lie


"Autism" existed long before the 1930s and there is copious evidence.

1) The first school for children with autism was set up in Copenhagen in
1926. The Sofieskool still exists and flourishes. OK - the children were
not given the name of "autistic" but they certainly existed.

2) Records from Great Ormonde Street hospital (from 1850 - 1890) (as
published by Mitzi Waltz) clearly describe children who would fit DSM IV
criteria for Autism.

3) The work of J Langdon Down (of Down Syndrome fame) published around
1878 include superb descriptions of children with autism. the most
interesting feature f these children is that many of them did not show
these symptoms until (as Down observes with great precision) until the
time of second dentition. I assume this is 6-8 years of age? I guess
these children would be diagnosed as having "Childhood Disintegrative
Disorder" nowadays but take a look at the symptoms! I would have thought
that a good case could be made for the involvement of mercury here.

He also describes another set of children with virtually the same
symptoms but who were like it from birth. I cannot see how he can not be
describing autism.

I agree totally, completely and utterly that there has been a staggering
increase in the numbers and these are indicative of potent environmental
factors of which the use of vaccines was an early one.

John,
Thanks for your post. Thanks also for your concern for children. I do
believe (but have NO proof) that there were autistic children during those
years before we had any vaccines. Let's assume that mercury is the cause
of autism. If that is true, it means that some of those children (that
lived in ancient times) would have developed autism if they were exposed
to mercury. Since there were NO vaccines containing mercury in those
days--the rates of autism would have been lower in those days. The type of
mercury in fish (methylmercury) is even more dangerous than the type of
mercury in thimerosal.

There were some cases, as mercury has been around for some time, and other
poisons

This is from a researcher, so I am changing the autism is not knew, to

Autism increase due to 'change in' or 'better diagnosis' lie


"Autism" existed long before the 1930s and there is copious evidence.

1) The first school for children with autism was set up in Copenhagen in
1926. The Sofieskool still exists and flourishes. OK - the children were
not given the name of "autistic" but they certainly existed.

2) Records from Great Ormonde Street hospital (from 1850 - 1890) (as
published by Mitzi Waltz) clearly describe children who would fit DSM IV
criteria for Autism.

3) The work of J Langdon Down (of Down Syndrome fame) published around
1878 include superb descriptions of children with autism. the most
interesting feature f these children is that many of them did not show
these symptoms until (as Down observes with great precision) until the
time of second dentition. I assume this is 6-8 years of age? I guess
these children would be diagnosed as having "Childhood Disintegrative
Disorder" nowadays but take a look at the symptoms! I would have thought
that a good case could be made for the involvement of mercury here.

He also describes another set of children with virtually the same
symptoms but who were like it from birth. I cannot see how he can not be
describing autism.

I agree totally, completely and utterly that there has been a staggering
increase in the numbers and these are indicative of potent environmental
factors of which the use of vaccines was an early one.

John,
I am responding to both of your posts. I agree that mercury and other
heavy metals MAY be the cause of autism. Scientists are still NOT 100 per
cent
sure related to the cause of autism. Thimerosal has already been removed
from most vaccines. Before the end of next year, thimerosal will probably
not be used in any vaccines. It's my GUESS that children will still
develop autism since mercury is in our environment. The type of mercury in
fish is even more dangerous than the type of mercury in vaccines. I was
told that the type of mercury in dental fillings is more dangerous than
the type of mercury in vaccines. I hope that the next step is to remove
mercury from all dental fillings. It's possible that various other heavy
metals and harmful chemicals
may also cause autism. I hope that the scientists (in the near future) are
able to discover the cause of autism.
Thanks for your post,
Jason

"You couldn't even construct a study that shows thimerosal is safe. It's
just too darn toxic. If you inject thimerosal into an animal, its brain will
sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a
petri dish, the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if
one could inject it into an infant without causing damage." ----Dr. Boyd
Haley, Professor and Chair, Dept. of Chemistry, University of Kentucky and
one of the world's leading authorities on mercury toxicity. (Excerpt from
Deadly Immunity)

John,
I have read reports and research studies that indicate that mercury is the
cause of autism. I have read other reports and research studies that
indicate that mercury is NOT the cause of autism. In other words,
scientists are not 100 per cent sure related to the cause of autism. Just
because you are certain that mercury is the cause of autism does not mean
that almost every scientist agrees with you. It's my opinion based upon
what I have read that autism is caused by heavy metals. Dangerous
chemicals may also cause autism. I agree that thimerosal should be removed
from all vaccines. I also believe that dental fillings should not contain
mercury. We agree related to most of these issues.

This points to an inability to examine evidence and think.

Jeff

No, it points to a blatant lie.

No, it's NOT a lie. A lie is "I posted it with the permission of the
author."

YOU are a PROVEN liar and a thief, Jan. That's no lie.

Incorrect. The scientists who are saying it is the cause are
speculating, since they have no proof it is the cause. The scientists
who are saying that it is not the cause, have substantial scientific
studies and epidemiological studies to base their opinions on.

Not all opinions are created equally. One has to look at what they are
based on. This is the fundamental philosophy of the Daubert decision,
which threw out two of the witnesses who were claiming that there is a
connection.

Just
