There are too many kids with autism for it NOT to be cause by vaccines....

Because the diagnostic criteria for autism haven't changed since 1994, Yazbak believes that the increase in autism is real. He spoke of explosive increases in states like Ohio, which experienced a 6,822 percent increase within six years, and noted a 26 percent jump in diagnosed autism cases in the US just in the last year. "The thing that increased at the same time as the autism rates is vaccination," said Yazbak. "We now have the most vaccinated group of children ever. More importantly, the mothers of these children are also the most vaccinated mothers ever and have the most immune diseases ever in the history of the world."

When Megson treated autistic children with vitamin A, using only the recommended daily allowance of cod liver oil, their chronic ear infections and sinusitis stopped. She showed slides of triplets who were brought into her office after they regressed following vaccination and would not make eye contact. After a few days on the cod liver oil regimen, "They were back," said Megson.

The live measles vaccine, Megson said, depletes children of their existing supply of vitamin A, which negatively impacts the retinoid receptors.

Hair analysis reveals high levels of aluminum, which is also found in vaccines. "I think in later years we are going to look back at aluminum the way we are looking at mercury now," said Cave. "Aluminum is neurotoxic but is found in city water, cookware, cans, and foil. All of this can accumulate, and it is a very difficult metal to pull out of their systems....It is a slow, arduous process, but if I had to name one treatment that has had astounding results, it is pulling metals [through nutritional therapies]....The age group that seems to benefit the most is between two and seven. Between seven and 12 there is speech and social recovery, and after 12 there is an ability to reduce the rage usually seen. Metal is rage. When you pull the metal, the rage goes." For Cave's testimony to a congressional hearing on mercury, see (Click on "Healthcare," then on "Mercury in Medicine," then on Dr. Stephanie Cave).

James Filenbaum is a New York attorney and author of the article "Your Right to Avoid Immunizations." He specializes in religious and philosophical exemptions to vaccination. Some state statutes require a parent to be a member of a specific organization to claim a religious exemption, but Filenbaum said that such a requirement has been declared unconstitutional. All states provide medical exemptions, and all but two states, Mississippi and West Virginia, also have religious exemptions. Currently 15 states provide for philosophical exemptions. "A lot of people, including school officials, may tell you that that is still the law, but it is not the law. It changed in 1988 when we brought a case in New York for a chiropractor who didn't want his child vaccinated. As a result of that case, the court declared the law unconstitutional because it discriminates between people based on their religious beliefs....When a school district denies you your right to claim a religious exemption, they are violating your federally protected civil rights under the first amendment....And under federal law you are entitled to financial damages."

New Study • Vaccines Cause Autism by financial

Thu Sep 13, 2007 at 10:24:49 PM PDT

The first ever study comparing vaccinated to unvaccinated children was completed with startling results.
  1. Vaccines Caused Autism
  2. Vaccines Caused Asthma
  3. Vaccines Caused ADHD

The study was privately funded and conducted through an independent research firm. 11,817 households with 17,674 children were interviewed.

This is important to note as this is the first ever study of its kind. All other studies on autism and vaccines only studied a changed variable, such as removing the MMR shot, or reducing the mercury in vaccines.

What is most significant is Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney introduced a bill to do just this study last year. The CDC discarded the idea and instead a bill for $1 billion for autism treatment was approved. The idea was "don't do the study, just try some other things with this money."  Now, a privately funded study, costing only $200,000, argues very powerfully that vaccines cause autism.   More Below....

The CDC claimed it was too hard to do this basic study. And, now it has been done. This is not conclusive, even though it followed standard protocols for data gathering (protocols established by the CDC), but it now firmly puts the ball in back in the CDC's court. They need to prove this study is wrong.

Here are two pointed paragraphs from the study. Digest this and tell me if you would now vaccinate your children without more data.

All vaccinated boys, removing one county with unusual results (Multnomah, OR), compared to unvaccinated boys: - Vaccinated boys were 185% more likely to have a neurological disorder (RR 2.85) - Vaccinated boys were 279% more likely to have ADHD (RR 3.79) - Vaccinated boys were 146% more likely to have autism (RR 2.46)

All vaccinated boys and girls, compared to unvaccinated boys and girls: - Vaccinated boys and girls were 120% more likely to have asthma (RR 2.20)

I think we are all a bit tired of the mantra "trust us, we know better than you." I say SHOW US THE DATA.

The Good News is Rep Maloney will resubmit her bill.

NOTE: JB Handley responds at end of diary:

Dear JB Handley,

Thank You for you posts and for doing the telephone survey study.

I am glad to argue for science. I believe your study, although challengable,  was the most important study ever made on autism and vaccines.

Your study is the only study in the whole world comparing vaccinated to completely unvaccinated kids. For that, the whole world owes you a thanks.

It is important to note that it may be something other than mercury.  If  vaccinated kids have a higher rate of autism, we have to figure out why.

When the definitive study comparing vaccinated to unvaccinated kids is done, I believe it will be essential to consider all points of view. In that frame of mind, I am thankful, too, for DailyKos providing a medium to discover some elements of the debate.

I hope we have a definitive study completed within 1 year.
