    "Physician Mark Green of Clarksville, Tennessee was elected last month to the U.S. House of Representatives. He is scheduled to be sworn into his new post on Jan. 3, 2019.1 2
    In the last few weeks, the newly elected congressman was inducted into the brass knuckle world of political correctness when he dared to step out of line and publicly voice his concern about the safety of vaccines."

    "Let me say this about autism. I have committed to people in my community, up in Montgomery County, to stand on the CDC’s desk and get the real data on vaccines. Because there is some concern that the rise in autism is the result of the preservatives that are in our vaccines. As a physician, I can make that argument and I can look at it academically and make the argument against the CDC, if they really want to engage me on it. But it appears some of that data has been, honestly, may be fraudulently managed. So we’ve got to go up there and stand against that and make sure we get that fixed, that issue addressed."

    A conspiracy theory of the very worst kind for peddling this myth puts children's lives at risk.
    Educate yourselves on the true causes of Autism. It isn't vaccines!

    https://www.autismspeaks.org/what-causes-autism

    • Vaccines. Each family has a unique experience with an autism diagnosis, and for some it corresponds with the timing of their child’s vaccinations. At the same time, scientists have conducted extensive research over the last two decades to determine whether there is any link between childhood vaccinations and autism. The results of this research is clear: Vaccines do not cause autism. The American Academy of Pediatrics has compiled a comprehensive list of this research.


    https://www.poison.org/articles/2010...t-cause-autism

    In 1998, the respected medical journal The Lancet published a paper by Andrew Wakefield and twelve other authors. They claimed that a new syndrome of gastrointestinal illness and autism was temporally associated with administration of the vaccine against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR). [1]It was later learned that Dr. Wakefield had fabricated and falsified data. In addition, he was found to have had significant financial conflicts of interest and to have violated standard ethical practices when conducting his study. [2] Ten of his co-authors repudiated their association with the findings of the paper. [3]). The Lancet published a retraction of the paper in February 2010. [4] Dr. Wakefield's license to practice medicine was revoked in May 2010 [5], as was that of one of his collaborators. [6] In January 2011, the British Medical Journal published an article and an editorial stating that Wakefield's paper was "an elaborate fraud". [7, 8]

    Anti-vaccine italian government sacks entire health expert board


    ANTI-VACCINE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT SACKS ENTIRE HEALTH EXPERT BOARD


    The vaccine-skeptic Italian government has sacked every member of the country’s health advisory board, raising fears that the populist administration will sideline accepted science and inflict long-lasting damage on public health.

    Health minister Giulia Grillo removed all 30 members of the Higher Health Council Monday, arguing it is time to “give space to the new,” The Guardian reported. The council is the country’s most prominent body of technical-scientific experts, who advise the government on health policy.


    Grillo is a member of the Five Star Movement (MS5)—the senior party in Italy’s ruling coalition, which has previously supported unproven cures for cancer and promised to overturn laws making vaccines mandatory for children. Explaining her decision, Grillo wrote on Facebook, “We are the #governmentofchange and, as I have already done with the appointments of the various organs and committees of the ministry, I have chosen to open the door to other deserving personalities.”

    Among those removed from their posts is former council president, Roberta Siliquini, who also serves as the head of the school of hygiene and preventive medicine at the University of Turin. Siliquini told The Guardian: “We are worried about why they have decided to remove people who were selected due to their experience and competencies at the highest level.” She added, “We are also worried about who will make up the next council and especially if the nominations are politically motivated.”

    The members of the board usually serve three-year terms, and it is unusual for them to be cut short, especially with such little explanation. Grillo wrote that some members “could be reappointed,” but “not the leaders…who must have the trust of and be in full harmony with the minister in charge.”

    Siliquini said she had never met Grillo since the new minister was appointed six months ago. “We’re the organisation that helps them, from a scientific and technical point of view, to make decisions on policy,” Siliquini explained. “But she never asked us anything during these six months, which was probably a strong signal.”

    MS5 came to power earlier this year on a wave of anti-establishment sentiment, allying with the far-right Lega Nord party to lead an unlikely populist coalition. The party’s health care policy has prompted concern by seemingly dismissing swathes of accepted science and instead embracing conspiracy theories and fraudulent medicine. MS5 has previously lent support to a controversial stem-cell therapy—known as Stamina—promoted by psychologist Davide Vannoni, who claimed it could perform miracles and cure diseases including cancer. Experts since claim to have proven the therapy is a scam. Current Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte also has links to the scam, having represented a the family of a girl with a degenerative disease in 2013, calling on the government to allow her access to Stamina treatment.


    MS5—then still a burgeoning force—seized on the debate to accuse the establishment of withholding new medical treatments from ordinary citizens, despite having no evidence that the method even worked.

    The party’s vaccine-skepticism has also been well-publicized. During this year’s election campaign, MS5 promised to reform a law that made 10 vaccines mandatory and required a doctor’s note to confirm the injections. In June, Grillo said parents could “self-certify” that their children had been vaccinated and waved the requirement for doctor confirmation.

    This caused chaos when the new school year began in September, with thousands of children with compromised immune systems forced to stay at home for fear that classmates had not been vaccinated against potentially deadly diseases. But a fresh measles epidemic has forced the government into a U-turn. Authorities have now said the vaccines obligation will remain in place and have called for 800,000 infants, children and young adults to be injected against the virus, The Telegraph noted.

    Anti-vaccine Italian Government Sacks Entire Health Expert ... 12/4/18


    Subtle Character Assassination of the MS5 party by Squeaky clean Big Pharma:
    “The party’s health care policy has prompted concern by seemingly dismissing swathes of accepted science and instead embracing conspiracy theories and fraudulent medicine.”

    How did our parents and grandparents, who were never vaccinated against anything, live such long healthy lives?

    Australian nurses and midwives who dare to speak out against the dangers of vaccinations on social media or in person will be prosecuted, the Australian government has warned, urging members of the public to report vaccine skeptics to the authorities.


    Medical professionals face a jail sentence of 10 years for expressing doubt about the effectiveness of vaccinations or urging further studies into vaccine safety. Opponents of the new law claim free speech and scientific integrity is under attack in Australia by a government that has been bought and paid for by Big Pharma. "With no exceptions we expect all registered nurses, enrolled nurses and midwives to use the best available evidence in making practice decisions. This includes providing information to the public about public health issues," Chair of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Dr. Lynette Cusack said in a statement.


    The NMBA has called on Australians to report nurses or midwives promoting anti-vaccination - 'anti-vaxxers', as they're known colloquially. "The board will consider whether the nurse or midwife has breached their professional obligations and will treat these matters seriously," the statement said. "Any published anti-vaccination material and/or advice which is false, misleading or deceptive which is being distributed by a registered nurse, enrolled nurse or midwife (including via social media) may also constitute a summary offence under the National Law and could result in prosecution by AHPRA [Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.]"


    One of the strongest supporters of vaccination, Victoria's Health Minister Jill Hennessy, has no time for parents who believe vaccine safety requires further study in order to ensure they are safe for our children. Describing vaccine skeptics as "brain dead sheep", the politician said: "They are an organized movement, largely stemming from the United State of America that are hell bent on misleading parents that vaccinations are unsafe. "That's a dangerous message and one I'm going to continue to fight. Vaccinations save lives," the minister concluded.


    According to the new laws, parents who don't immunize their kids may stop receiving childcare benefits. Only people with solid medical reasons are exempt from the crackdown.


    Vaccine skepticism in Australia now punishable by 10 years in jail19 Jan 2019.
























    Free speech would mean people can make an enlightened choice.
    Australia is quite American and thatÂ’s why Big Pharma can behave there like this.

    Vaccine deep state plot to seize NaturalNews.com domain and criminalize all speech that questions vaccine propaganda


    The World Health Organization, a criminal cartel front for the vaccine industry, has just declared war on the so-called “anti-vax” movement.
    The W.H.O. is the same group that spiked vaccines given to women in Africa with abortion / infertility drugs. The W.H.O. is also the same fraudulent group that falsely declared H5N1 bird flu to be a “stage 6 pandemic” in order to create global panic that generated billions of dollars in vaccine sales to world government (which stockpiled the vaccines and then later spent a fortune having the unused vaccine destroyed).


    Now, the W.H.O. says that anti-vaxxers are one of the greatest public health threats of 2019, ranking the “vaccine hesitancy” movement right alongside Ebola as a public health threat. “Vaccine hesitancy – the reluctance or refusal to vaccinate despite the availability of vaccines – threatens to reverse progress made in tackling vaccine-preventable diseases,” claims the W.H.O. in a global health threat ranking document that also claims global warming — a quack science hoax fabricated by globalists — is also going to destroy humanity if we don’t surrender world economies to Al Gore.


    The real goal is to criminalize vaccine skepticism and shut down all online speech that’s critical of vaccine safety

    From sources inside the vaccine deep state, I’m being told that this declaration by the World Health Organization is just the first step in a major assault being unleashed against Natural News and other independent journalism sources that rightfully question the lack of safety in toxic vaccines. With this declaration in place, the next steps will include:


    • Passing laws in Australia, the United States and Europe that criminalize all online speech which is critical of vaccine safety.




    • Arresting and imprisoning individuals who discuss the truth about vaccine ingredients such as Thimerosal, squalene or aborted human fetal cells (i.e. aborted human baby parts).




    • Blacklisting all scientists who study vaccine composition.




    • Seizing all domain names of independent publishers who report the truth about vaccines.




    • Censoring all “anti-vax” content across all search engines, mobile devices and social media.




    • Banning all “anti-vax” films and movies by claiming they are “spreading disease” when, in reality, they are spreading the truth about vaccine dangers.





    Watch my urgent video that exposes the WHO’s global agenda to criminalize and silence all “non-official” speech about vaccines

    I’ve just posted a hugely important video that explains the W.H.O. agenda to silence and criminalize all truthful speech about vaccines and vaccine ingredients.

    This is a must-watch video, and you can find it only on Brighteon.com:

    Vaccine deep state plot to seize NaturalNews.com ... 22 Jan 2019.
    Like 'home schoolers', 'anti-vaxxers' are a huge threat to the globalist's soft kill.

    And old article (may 2017), but still interesting.


    Sweden Bans Mandatory Vaccinations Over 'Serious Heath Concerns'

    Sweden has banned mandatory vaccinations, citing “serious health concerns” and the fact they violate a citizen’s constitutional rights to choose their own healthcare. The Swedish Riksdag (parliament) rejected seven motions on May 10 that would have enshrined forced vaccinations into law, stating “It would violate our [Swedish Constitution] if we introduced compulsory vaccinations, or mandatory vaccinations.”

    Noting also the “massive resistance (by Swedes) to all forms of coercion with regard to vaccinations“, the Riksdag also made reference to “frequent serious adverse reactions” in children who receive vaccinations.

    An English translation of the Swedish report:

    “NHF Sweden sent a letter to the Committee and explained that it would violate our Constitution if we introduced compulsory vaccinations, or mandatory vaccinations as was submitted in Arkelsten’s motion. Many others have also submitted correspondence and many citizens have called up Parliament and politicians. Parliamentary politicians has surely noticed that there’s a massive resistance to all forms of coercion with regard to vaccinations.

    “NHF Sweden also shows how frequent serious adverse reactions according to the rate at which FASS specifies in the package leaflet of the MMR vaccine, when you vaccinate an entire year group. In addition, one must take into account that each age group will receive the MMR vaccine twice, so the side effects are doubled. We must not forget that, in addition, similar adverse reaction lists apply for other vaccines.

    “In the letter, we have even included an extensive list of the additives found in vaccines – substances which are not health foods and certainly do not belong in babies or children. We also included for lawmakers a daunting list of studies that demonstrate vaccination is a bad idea.”


    The Swedish Riksdag’s sensible decision flies in the face of what is happening in the United States and other western countries right now. Big Pharma has lawmakers in a choke hold, dictating policy and using the corrupt media to silence dissenters.

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently appeared on the Tucker Carlson Show and bravely exposed the “lawless mafia state” that is Big Pharma and their “extremely lucrative” vaccines scam.

    “The pharmaceutical industry is so powerful,” RFK Jr explained. “They give $5.4 billion a year to the media. They’ve gotten rid of the lawyers, so there is no legal interest in those cases. They have really been able to control the debate and silence people like me.” Asked how things could get this bad, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. explained that Congress granted Big Pharma “blanket legal immunity” when it comes to vaccines.

    For some years now I have suspected that I was damaged by vaccines as a child. I was given the very first Polio vaccine. Looking back, I had many indications of autism while growing up.

    30 solid pertinent and probatory scientific studies that fully prove vaccines are linked with autism

    30 solid pertinent and probatory scientific studies that fully prove vaccines are linked with autism

    These thirty scientific studies show a link between vaccines and autism, disproving the myth that no official research papers exist to support what alternative doctors have been saying for years.


    We present you a list of 30 scientific studies that show a link between vaccines and autism, disproving the myth that no official research papers exist to support what alternative doctors have been saying for years.


    These papers can be shown to medical doctors and public health officials who wish to see peer reviewed scientific studies to back up the claims that autism is a direct result from receiving a vaccination.


    The first research paper that we present was the first one ever written on the subject. Child Psychiatrist Leo Kanner discovered 11 children over the course of several years who displayed a novel set of neurological symptoms that had never been described in the medical literature, where children were withdrawn, uncommunicative and displayed similar odd behaviors.


    This disorder would become known as “autism”. In the paper, Dr. Kanner noted that onset of the disorder began following the administration of a small pox vaccine. This paper was published in 1943, and evidence that vaccination causes an ever increasing rate of neurological and immunological regressions, including autism, has been mounting from that time until now.


    Autistic Disturbances of Affective Contact



    Leo Kanner, Johns Hopkins University, 1943: “Since 1938, there have come to our attention a number of children whose condition differs so markedly and uniquely from anything reported so far, that each case merits – and, I hope, will eventually receive – a detailed consideration of its fascinating peculiarities.”


    All of Kanner’s cases were born after, and began to appear following the introduction of Eli Lilly’s new form of water-soluble mercury in the late 1920s used as an anti-fungal in forestry, a wood treatment product in the lumber industry and as a disinfectant and anti-bacterial in the medical industry under the name of “Thimerosal” that was included in vaccines.


    As you can see, the medical professionals testifying that there is no scientific support for the vaccine/autism causation theory are uninformed about the current state of the science. When vaccination decisions are made based on an uninformed opinion, it means serious potential damage to the patient, and because of the law preventing lawsuits for vaccine injury, it also means that the uninformed medical professionals making bad recommendations CANNOT be held accountable in any way for giving the patient bad information.


    Parents want to know if their child can develop autism from their vaccines. If they believe that the answer is yes, and the risk of brain injury from vaccination is higher than their risk from a disease, it is their right to decline vaccination for themselves and their children without coercion.


    Patients MUST be able to make their own informed vaccine decisions, because often, they know more about potential vaccine risks that even top public health officials do.


    1. Hepatitis B Vaccination of Male Neonates and Autism

    Study published in the Annals of Epidemiology in September 2009. The authors are C. M. Gallagher and M. S. Goodman from Stony Brook University Medical Center.

    Boys vaccinated as neonates had threefold greater odds for autism diagnosis compared to boys never vaccinated or vaccinated after the first month of life.


    2. Porphyrinuria in childhood autistic disorder: Implications for environmental toxicity

    Study published in the Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology in 2006. The authors are Robert Natafa et al from the Laboratoire Philippe Auguste, Paris, France.


    These data implicate environmental toxicity in childhood autistic disorder.


    3. Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes—A review

    Study published in the Journal of Immunotoxicology, January-March 2011. The author is Helen V. Ratajczak, PhD.


    Autism could result from more than one cause, with different manifestations in different individuals that share common symptoms. Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis following vaccination.


    4. Uncoupling of ATP-mediated Calcium Signaling and Dysregulated IL-6 Secretion in Dendritic Cells by Nanomolar Thimerosal

    Study published in the Environmental Health Perspectives in July 2006. The authors are Samuel R. Goth, Ruth A. Chu and Jeffrey P. Gregg.


    This study demonstrates that very low levels of Thimerosal can contribute to immune system dysregulation.


    5. Gender-selective toxicity of thimerosal

    Study published in the Experimental Toxicology Pathology in March 2009. The study was conducted by a branch of researchers from the Departments of Medicine and Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology, at University of Toronto.


    A recent report shows a correlation of the historical use of thimerosal in therapeutic immunizations with the subsequent development of autism; however, this association remains controversial. Autism occurs approximately four times more frequently in males compared to females; thus, studies of thimerosal toxicity should take into consideration gender-selective effects. The present study was originally undertaken to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of thimerosal in male and female mice. However, during the limited MTD studies, it became apparent that thimerosal has a differential MTD that depends on whether the mouse is male or female.


    6. Comparison of Blood and Brain Mercury Levels in Infant monkeys exposed to Vaccines Containing Thimerosal

    Study published in the Environmental Health Perspectives in August 2005. The author is Thomas Burbacher, PhD, from the University of Washington.


    This study demonstrates clearly and unequivocally that ethyl mercury, the kind of mercury found in vaccines, not only ends up in the brain but leaves double the amount of inorganic mercury as methyl mercury, the kind of mercury found in fish. This work is groundbreaking because little is known about ethyl mercury, and many health authorities have asserted that the mercury found in vaccines is the “safe kind”. This study also delivers a strong rebuke of the Institute of Medicine’s recommendation in 2004 to no longer pursue the mercury-autism connection.


    7. Increases in the number of reactive glia in the visual cortex of Macaca fascicularis following subclinical long-term methyl mercury exposure

    Study published in the Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology, in 1994. The authors are Charleston J.S. et al, from the Department of Pathology, School of Medicine, University of Washington.


    The identities of the reactive glial cells and the implications for the long-term function and survivability of the neurons due to changes in the glial population following subclinical long-term exposure to mercury are discussed.


    8. Neuroglial Activation and Neuroinflammation in the Brain of Patients with Autism

    Study published in the Annals of Neurology, in February 2005. The author is Diana L. Vargas, MD, from Johns Hopkins University.


    This study, performed independently and using a different methodology than Dr. Herbert (see the following study) reached the same conclusion: the brains of autistic children are suffering from inflammation.


    9. Autism: A Brain Disorder, or a Disorder That Affects the Brain?

    Study published in the Clinical Neuropsychiatry, in 2005. The author is Martha R. Herbert M.D., Ph.D., from Harvard University.


    Autism is defined behaviorally, as a syndrome of abnormalities involving language, social reciprocity and hyperfocus or reduced behavioral flexibility. It is clearly heterogeneous, and it can be accompanied by unusual talents as well as by impairments, but its underlying biological and genetic basis in unknown. Autism has been modeled as a brain-based, strongly genetic disorder, but emerging findings and hypotheses support a broader model of the condition as a genetically influenced and systemic.


    10. Activation of Methionine Synthase by Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 and Dopamine: a Target for Neurodevelopmental Toxins and Thimerosal
    Study published in the Molecular Psychiatry, in July 2004. The author is Richard C. Deth, PhD, from Northeastern University.


    This study demonstrates how Thimerosal inhibits methylation, a central driver of cellular communication and development.


    11. Validation of the Phenomenon of Autistic Regression Using Home Videotapes

    Study published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, in 2005. The authors are Emily Werner, PhD and Geraldine Dawson, PhD, from the University of Washington.


    This study validates the existence of early autistic regression.


    12. Blood Levels of Mercury Are Related to Diagnosis of Autism: A Reanalysis of an Important Data Set

    Study published in the Journal of Child Neurology, in 2007. The authors are M. Catherine DeSoto, PhD and Robert T. Hitlan, PhD from the Department of Psychology, University of Northern Iowa.


    Excerpt: “We have reanalyzed the data set originally reported by Ip et al. in 2004 and have found that the original p value was in error and that a significant relation does exist between the blood levels of mercury and diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder. Moreover, the hair sample analysis results offer some support for the idea that persons with autism may be less efficient and more variable at eliminating mercury from the blood.”


    13. Developmental Regression and Mitochondrial Dysfunction in a Child With Autism

    Study published in the Journal of Child Neurology, in February 2006. The author is Jon S. Poling, MD, PhD, from the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, at Johns Hopkins Hospital.


    Excerpt: “Children who have (mitochondrial-related) dysfunctional cellular energy metabolism might be more prone to undergo autistic regression between 18 and 30 months of age if they also have infections or immunizations at the same time.”


    14. Oxidative Stress in Autism: Elevated Cerebellar 3-nitrotyrosine Levels

    Study published in the American Journal of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, in 2008. The authors are Elizabeth M. Sajdel-Sulkowska and her team from the Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School.


    Excerpt: “The preliminary data suggest a need for more extensive studies of oxidative stress, its relationship to the environmental factors and its possible attenuation by antioxidants in autism.”


    15. Large Brains in Autism: The Challenge of Pervasive Abnormality

    Study published in the The Neuroscientist in 2005. The author is Martha Herbert, MD, PhD, from Harvard University.


    This study helps refute the notion that the brains of autistic children are simply wired differently and notes: “neuroinflammation appears to be present in autistic brain tissue from childhood through adulthood.”

    Dr. Herbert suggests that chronic disease or an external environmental source (like heavy metals) may be causing the inflammation.


    16. Evidence of Toxicity, Oxidative Stress, and Neuronal Insult in Autism

    Study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Nov-Dec issue from 2006. The authors are Janet Kern and Anne Jones, from the Department of Psychiatry, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.


    This article discusses the evidence for the case that some children with autism may become autistic from neuronal cell death or brain damage sometime after birth as result of insult; and addresses the hypotheses that toxicity and oxidative stress may be a cause of neuronal insult in autism... the article discusses what may be happening over the course of development and the multiple factors that may interplay and make these children more vulnerable to toxicity, oxidative stress, and neuronal insult.”


    17. Oxidative Stress in Autism

    Study published in the Pathophysiology, in 2006. The authors are Abha Chauhan and Ved Chauhan.


    This study provides a helpful overview of the growing evidence supporting the link between oxidative stress and autism.


    18. Thimerosal Neurotoxicity is Associated with Glutathione Depletion: Protection with Glutathione Precursors

    Study published in the Neurotoxicology, in January 2005. The author is S. Jill James, PhD, from the University of Arkansas.


    This recent study demonstrates that Thimerosal lowers or inhibits the body’s ability to produce Glutathione, an antioxidant and the body’s primary cellular-level defense against mercury.


    19. Aluminum adjuvant linked to gulf war illness induces motor neuron death in mice

    Study published in the Neuromolecular Medicine, in 2007. The author is Christopher Shaw, Ph.D., from the Department of Ophthalmology and Program in Neuroscience, University of British Columbia.

    20. Environmental mercury release, special education rates, and autism disorder: an ecological study of Texas

    Study published in the Health & Place, in 2006. The author is Raymond F. Palmer, from the University of Texas Health Science Center.


    This study demonstrated the correlation between environmental mercury and autism rates in Texas.


    21. Autism Spectrum Disorders in Relation to Distribution of Hazardous Air Pollutants in the SF Bay Area

    Study published in the Environmental Health Perspectives, in September, 2006. The authors are Gayle Windham and his team from the Division of Environmental and Occupational Disease Control, California Department of Health Services.


    Excerpt: “Our results suggest a potential association between autism and estimated metal concentrations, and possibly solvents, in ambient air around the birth residence.”


    22. A Case Series of Children with Apparent Mercury Toxic Encephalopathies Manifesting with Clinical Symptoms of Regressive Autistic Disorder
    Study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, in 2007. The authors are David A. Geier and Mark R. Geier.


    This study reviewed the case histories and medical profiles of nine autistic children and concluded that eight of the nine children were mercury toxic and this toxicity manifested itself in a manner consistent with Autism Spectrum Disorders.


    23. Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and blood mercury level: a case-control study in chinese children

    Study published in the Neuropediatrics, in August 2006. The author is P.R. Kong.


    Excerpt: “There was significant difference in blood mercury levels between cases and controls, which persists after adjustment for age, gender and parental occupational status. The geometric mean blood mercury level was also significantly higher in children with inattentive and combined subtypes of ADHD. High blood mercury level was associated with ADHD. Whether the relationship is causal requires further studies.”


    24. The Changing Prevalence of Autism In California

    Study published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, in April 2003. The authors are Mark F. Blaxill, David S. Baskin, and Walter O. Spitzer.


    This study helps to refute the supposition made by some researchers that autism’s epidemic may only be due to “diagnostic substitution”.


    25. Mitochondrial Energy-Deficient Endophenotype in Autism

    Study published in the American Journal of Biochemistry and Biotechnology in 2008. The authors are J. Jay Gargus and Faiqa Imtiaz, from the School of Medicine, University of California, Irvine.


    While evidence points to a multigenic etiology of most autism, the pathophysiology of the disorder has yet to be defined and the underlying genes and biochemical pathways they subserve remain unknown.


    26. Bridging from Cells to Cognition in Autism Pathophysiology: Biological Pathways to Defective Brain Function and Plasticity

    Study published in the American Journal of Biochemistry and Biotechnology in 2008. The authors are Matthew P. Anderson, Brian S. Hooker and Martha R. Herbert, from Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical School/Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.


    Excerpt: “We review evidence to support a model where the disease process underlying autism may begin when an in utero or early postnatal environmental, infectious, seizure, or autoimmune insult triggers an immune response that increases reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in the brain that leads to DNA damage (nuclear and mitochondrial) and metabolic enzyme blockade and that these inflammatory and oxidative stressors persist beyond early development (with potential further exacerbations), producing ongoing functional consequences.”


    27. Heavy-Metal Toxicity—With Emphasis on Mercury

    Study conducted by John Neustadt, ND, and Steve Pieczenik, MD, PhD.


    Conclusion: Metals are ubiquitous in our environment, and exposure to them is inevitable. However, not all people accumulate toxic levels of metals or exhibit symptoms of metal toxicity, suggesting that genetics play a role in their potential to damage health.


    28. Evidence of Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Autism and Implications for Treatment

    Study published in the American Journal of Biochemistry and Biotechnology. The authors are Daniel A. Rossignol and J. Jeffrey Bradstreet.


    MtD and oxidative stress may also explain the high male-to-female ratio found in autism due to increased male vulnerability to these dysfunctions.


    29. Proximity to point sources of environmental mercury release as a predictor of autism prevalence

    Study published in the Health & Place, in 2008. The authors are Raymond F. Palmer et al, from University of Texas Health Science Center.


    Excerpt: “This study should be viewed as hypothesis-generating – a first step in examining the potential role of environmental mercury and childhood developmental disorders. Nothing is known about specific exposure routes, dosage, timing, and individual susceptibility. We suspect that persistent low-dose exposures to various environmental toxicants, including mercury, that occur during critical windows of neural development among genetically susceptible children (with a diminished capacity for metabolizing accumulated toxicants) may increase the risk for developmental disorders such as autism.”


    30. Epidemiology of autism spectrum disorder in Portugal: prevalence, clinical characterization, and medical conditions

    Study published in the Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology, in 2007. The authors are Guiomar Oliveira MD PhD et al, from Children’s Development Center (Centro de Desenvolvimento da Crianca), at the Children’s Hospital (Hospital Pediatrico) in Coimbra, Portugal.


    The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and identify its clinical characterization, and medical conditions in a pediatric population in Portugal.

    Vaccines are a good thing, but not so much for 2 month old infants. Furthermore, the count of recommended vaccines has risen from 3 to 8 for infants [in Germany].
    As a short reminder: the blood-brain-barrier is only fully developed at the age of one year.
    I am for a vaccinated population, since the benefits are unquestionable -- especially for measles and tetanus. However, I strongly challenge the point of time for the vaccination. Additionally, it is questionable whether you should vaccinated your child against STDs even at the age of 1.

    It is irrational to reject vaccines completely.
