Autism is best described as a brain disorder that affects the development of social and communication skills. It was in 1943 that the eminent psychiatrist, Leo Kanner of Johns Hopkins University, first described to the world eight boys and three girls with a curious condition that, in his expert opinion, “differs … markedly and uniquely from anything reported so far.” His observations and report followed thimerosal’s entry into vaccine ingredients but, regrettably, it was overlooked and dismissed as coincidence, just as it is today.
Autism was considered rare and affected approximately 1 in every 10,000 children, as compared to 1 in every 166 children today (The Autism Autoimmunity Project, 2005). Specific characteristics of autism include the inability to make eye contact, unexplained changes in mood, delayed speech, repetitive behavior, and incapability to tolerate changes in light, sound, and overall environment; which, Bernard et al. recently studied and concluded they “… have shown that every major characteristic of autism has been exhibited in at least several cases of documented mercury poisoning.”
It has been well accepted that autism, at least in part, is caused by mercury and that it’s removal makes vaccines “safer.” But Americans have been exposed to mercury from contaminated fish, coal-burning power plants, dental fillings, and mercury additives for many years. There are common components of current childhood and adult vaccines, that can still cause neurological disorders. When viewing graphs of the amplified autism rates, it seems the volume of vaccines have more correlation than anything else.
The facts clearly demonstrate that the inception and statistical explosion coincides with vaccination uptake.
Once thought of as an “American disease” of the affluent – ones who could afford vaccination. But the emergence of autistic children in other nations reinforces vaccination’s cause and effect relationship to autism.
When Merck and Glaxo-Smith-Kline began marketing Thimerosal containing vaccines to developing countries like Indonesia, India, and Argentina, it resulted in a sudden boom of autism reports.
The official Chinese news agency, Xinhua, reported that children suffering with autism in that country had suddenly skyrocketed from nearly nothing to 1.8 million children in 2004. Only the rise of mass vaccination campaigns can explain this recent phenomenon.
Dan Olmstead traveled to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and surveyed the Amish community who do not believe in vaccination. With the national rate of autism taken into consideration there should have been 130 autistics; Olmstead found only 3 cases, two of them had received their vaccinations.
Even government members had to admit, “We don’t see that kind of genetic change in 30 years” (Scientific Review of Vaccine Safety Datalink Information, 2000).
The medical profession has been blindly trusted for too long. How can one place such blind faith in “experts” who stare the obvious in the face and somehow conclude that the cause of autism is just “unknown.”
