I agree with this article. Autism has been around far longer than the things they are blaming it on. My grandfather most likely was. Granted back then they didn't have a label for it. My Dad as well. Granted both of them where functioning members of society. Also they are not full autistic. They are asperger's. Highly intelligent but yet can't grasp social issues. If you sat down to talk with my grandfather and asked him what he did for a living... He would start with his first job as a teen and 6 hours later you'll hear about his last job. He never could hold a two way conversation. My dad is better at it than he was. My oldest (Nigel) is asperger's. I don't blame modern meds... No it comes down to my family DNA. It also didn't help that he had spinal meningitis at 7 months old. I could blame his MMR but how do you explain my grandfather? He was born at a time when MMR was gotten through getting the germs and getting sick.
BTW all of my kids have their MMR's... I will not risk their getting the illness when theirs means to avoid it.
Oddly enough I just spoke with a woman last night who has two sons and a grandfather with aspergers. She too is convinced of the genetic link. Man is a convenient and obvious target for those who cannot accept anomolies of nature.
I think this needs to be bumped. In another thread we are talking about shots and their effects.
Actually the author of the OP has no idea how lawsuits work. That and it seems strange that a genetic defect could suddenly, all on its own, start happening in massively higher amounts over the last 10 years. Why would that happen?
The author of the article is kind of a nut, cynical and naive at the same time.
I think that people are being way too simplistic about autism by insisting that it's either genetic OR environmental. There are lots of things that are both. So it could be that certain people have a genetic sensitivity to the preservatives in vaccines (mercury, which is horrible for the human body) but those genes aren't triggered until the person is exposed to something like mercury.
There is a website for people who conceived children using donated sperm or eggs. About eight women who all have children from the same donor have found each other and discovered that almost all the kids have some type of autism spectrum disorder. I would not be surprised if it didn't turn out to be genetic and something in the environment.
It's like people who have PKU. Babies are tested for it at birth, because if they are exposed to phenylanines (like nutrasweet) they can become mentally challenged or have seizure disorders. Maybe at some point we can figure out how to screen for sensitivity to vaccines, and give those people an alternate type of vaccine or give them a waiver.
The United States is also insane in it's recommended vaccination schedule. We are the only first world country that crams so many vaccines into kids in such a short period of time.
I agree with your last statement completely...................the babies are WAAAAAY TO MEDICATED WAAAAAAY TO EARLY............and we should demand the poisons taken out on all levels
Yes I'm quoting myself... I figured it most likely got missed by the last 2 posters. It states my view on it.
There is 100% proof it's created by the person's DNA and not the MMR. It's escape goating at it's best. They are acting like autism is something new in human conditions. It's not. It's been here all along. The ones being labeled with it now generally would have been label other things.
Take my grandfather, he was extremely nonsocial. He didn't do conversational speaking at all. Now that we know more about autism, we diagnose more with it. We see that it's not just lower IQ's it effects. It effects the high IQ's as well. My grandfather was extremely intelligent.
Only ones that where mentally retarded would possibly be labeled as autistic. My mom worked with DD's (developmentally disabled) for years. When the Dr talked to her about Nigel being autistic, she was surprised that someone non DD would be diagnosed as autistic. The more we dive into it, the more we realise that it's been in the family all along. But until now we didn't have anyone diagnosed with it in the family. I know with out a doubt that my grandfather and father would have be diagnosed autistic if they would be seen by a specialist. I don't think it's an epidemic like so many say it is... It's just that we are noticing it's more prevalent than previously thought. It's been here all along in the same % as before, just being noticed more than before.
The only study linking MMR to autism was retracted. The Dr running the study was being paid by a lawyer that was trying to prove there was a tie.
