I just got news about
the National Vaccine Information Center initiative to inform the public about
the risks from our ever-expanding vaccine program. Thank you to Barbara Loe
Fisher and everyone at NVIC. This ad campaign will impact parents across the
U.S. And it's especially important to see that Chicago is one of the sites
because that's the home of the American Academy of Pediatrics, an organization
that has yet to recognize that autism is a crisis in the U.S.
During March and April
2013, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is conducting an
educational billboard campaign in Arizona, Illinois, Oregon, Washington and
Texas to encourage well-informed vaccine decision-making.
heartbreaking recently at the Georgia Capitol to watch autism families fight
for insurance coverage for their children. Beyond heartbreaking, it was a
reprehensible act for the legislators to table that bill until at least next
"State Sen. Renee
Unterman was opposed to the bill because it would raise insurance premiums for
others. Yet, many states already cover some treatments for children on the
autism spectrum, and the rise was minimal. Comments from other senators such as
'I'm on your side' or 'I'll do what I can for you' ring as empty as the bank
accounts of most autism families"
advocate, Maurine Meleck voiced her opinion on the actions of the Georgia
"Professor Naviaux and his team believe
both genetic and environmental causes of autism can be traced to a sustained
cell danger response linked to immunity and inflammation.
"This results in changes to metabolism and gene expression (activity) and
reduces the communication between neighbouring cells. Simply put, when cells
stop talking to each other, children stop talking.'
"The 'striking effectiveness' of the drug
in mice could pave the way to a 'completely new class of anti-inflammatory drugs
to treat autism and other disorders', said Professor Naviaux.
"So researchers are
admitting that autism linked to INFLAMMATION? Brain inflammation?"
It's due to exposure to
a "toxic environmental substance." Amazing. Of course no
one is concerned about what toxic environmental substance is responsible.
There's too much money to be made from all the damage."
"Despite reams of science proving its safety, perception
lingers over mercury
"In order for vaccines to be free of contamination, experts
decided as far back as the 1930s to use ethyl mercury as a preservative. This
avoids the risk of vaccines getting contaminated by bacteria and fungi when
multidose vials are used. ...
"A growing number of parents remain concerned about the use
of thimerosal in vaccines - even though this preservative, which contains ethyl
mercury, has been around for more than 60 years and even though it has been
studied extensively for its safety. The unsubstantiated suspicion that it could
be neurotoxic may be one reason for lower vaccine rates in some parts of North
Actually, thimerosal been around for over eighty years---never
tested or approved by the FDA. Dr. Peter Nieman just can't understand why
we don't believe the safety studies on mercury use in vaccinations. I
posted numerous comment and all my links are working.
regulators have issued emergency regulations aimed at keeping insurance
companies from delaying or denying coverage for autism treatment.
Commissioner Dave Jones announced the approval of emergency rules this week,
which take effect immediately.
children and their families should now, without delay, receive the
transformative treatment that will enable them to succeed in school, their
families, and communities,' Jones wrote in a statement."
it really matter that more and more states are mandating that insurance
companies cover autism? The high cost of autism is impacting insurance
companies. This article describes the measures being used to avoid having to
pay. And I'm sure the industry is awaiting the DSM changes eagerly. Sorry, your
child no longer has autism. You don't have coverage.
"A new study is
underway to see if Shakespearian plays can help kids with autism."
"Her idea was to use the exaggerated voices and facial
expressions of Shakespeare, to teach children who have trouble
face of the nightmare thousands of parents of children with autism face each
day, it's unbelievable to read this. I can't even come up with comment here.
Autism is a curiosity no one is worried about. We have all the time in the
world to study things like Shakespearian plays and autism. How much money is
being spent here on this?
"The number of
children diagnosed with autism is rising sharply in Vietnam, according to
experts from the Vietnam Association of Autistic Children....
"A study conducted
by the Hanoi-based Central Pediatrics Hospital revealed that the number of
children with autism detected by the hospital in 2007 was 50 times more than in
2000, while the number of autistic children treated by the hospital up by 33
southern Ho Chi Minh City, the number of autistic children increased from only
two in 2000 to 324, or 160 times higher, in 2008....
"The exact causes
of the disorder remain unknown. There is probably a combination of factors that
leads to autism, including genetic factors and others including diet, mercury
poisoning, the body's inability to properly process vitamins and minerals, and
vaccine sensitivity, according to medical experts.
Read the stunning
admission in the last paragraph. Cause---"mercury poisoning/vaccine
"Investigators from the University of Maryland in Baltimore
found that from 1997 to 2006, use of antipsychotic medications in this
population increased 7- to 12-fold, with most of the increased use associated
with treatment for behavioral problems."
All the neurologically damaged children out there are the endless
market for pharma. Nothing like making money off the victim of vaccine injury.
One autism dad once said to me that in the coming years, they'll box them up
and drug them. ....But maybe, since we're talking about autism, it's
legislative session, the Meriden Democrat introduced a bill in the Insurance
and Real Estate Committee that would prevent people with autism from losing
health insurance coverage due to a change in the definition of the disorder.
The definition may change this spring and could affect people who have been
diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder."
This is good to see. I posted comments.
We read in this story, "The definition is
being changed because too many people are being diagnosed with the
disorder." Why? We need to ask WHY!
