We had a marvelous time earlier this month at the Kalahari Resort Hotel in one of the best tourist spots in the state of Wisconsin , aptly named, Wisconsin Dells.
In addition to the beautiful natural scenery and water parks in the Dells, the 4D Conference amassed a number of the best experts on autism and other neurological problems in the country. HERE
of the names were personally familiar to me, like Dr. Boyd Haley and Dr. Mayer Eisenstein . But the list of experts was long and the information they provided truly offered HOPE--hope of recovery. (For information on ordering recordings of the presentations, see: HERE )
I'm happy to report that the local news in the Dells also covered the conference. And unlike sources like the Chicago Tribune and the New York Times, WISCONSIN DELLS EVENTS actually presented both sides of a vaccine debate that was included in the conference. (To listen to the debate, check out the speaker link above.)
This is the local news article that was published May 21: "Panel debates vaccine safety." ( HERE ) We were told about experts on both sides. "A former biochemistry professor from the University of Kentucky , a local Lake Delton physician and a doctor from a Chicago practice convened this month to debate the health effects of vaccines, including the recent H1N1 vaccine, at a conference at Kalahari Resort."
I was impressed that any doctor was willing to defend the vaccine program they're always telling us is so safe. Dr. Maureen Murphy of the Lake Delton is to be congratulated for appearing at the 4D Conference.
(It should be noted that organizers of the conference had tried for five months to get even one Wisconsin health official to make the short drive from Madison to the Dells to participate in this debate, but as far back as Jan, no one had any free time in May. March 10th, however, I attended a State Senate Hearing on the sale of raw milk in WI and lots of state health officials managed the three hour drive to Eau Claire to condemn the drinking of raw milk, something almost all the hundreds of attendees have been doing for years. )
It's hard to read statements in the Dells story by experts like Haley and Eisenstein and not be alarmed Dr. Eisenstein: 'I think there is a direct link between autism and vaccines.'
Dr. Haley said something is wrong when the U.S. "does the most infant vaccinations and has about the 39th highest infant death rate out of countries ranked."
I'm so grateful for those who put tremendous effort into making this conference a success and I can't wait till next year! -- Anne Dachel is Media Editor of Age of Autism.
