Why Autism? An Excellent Question

"at this moment some one with autism is being born, the question is W H Y"
Kevin Fox, UK autism dad, posted on facebook
Hopefully, some day in the not too distant future, researchers and public health authorities will ask themselves the question Kevin Fox asked on facebook. WHY autism? Simply assuming that autism is 100% genetic is not science. It is long past time for the "it's gotta be genetic" mindset identified by Teresa Binstock in 1999 to be put aside and research conducted to understand all of the causes and triggers of autism - genetic, biological and environmental. If those causes or triggers include vaccines or vaccine ingredients then so be it. This parent, and most parents, want to know why their child has an autism disorder. With numbers of autism diagnoses rising society has an interest in knowing W H Y.
Why autism is a question which remains unanswered. Public health authorities and researchers who are afraid to explore all possible answers to that question for fear that the answer might point to vaccines, or to industrial products, should step aside and let real scientists and researchers, those with open minds and without conflicts of interest weighing them down, do the necessary research to answer it.
Why autism? Let's get busy and answer that excellent question.

Ten years ago,in 1999,I got on the internet for the very first time.One of the first things I started to do,was try to investigate the condition I had been diagnosed with once upon a time.Teresa Binstock's original website was one of the first places I ever went.It was there that I first got some inkling that everything from head banging and eloping to bowel disease,and autoimmune heart and lung disease could all be brought under the umbrella of one condition.

It has taken me all this time ,to get to the point where I think I am finally getting some answers. Most recently I have learned you don't have to have the measles virus from the MMR vaccine in your gut , to have the "classic" autistic inflammatory bowel disease,which I have had since I was two or three.I have learned there is quite a long list of naturally acquired viruses that will do the job nicely.

I have also learned about mercury/amalgam fillings, and how the mercury can get into the blood,and cross the placenta.

As one commenter at Age of Autism put it "the baby chelates the mother".My mother had multiple fillings for years before I was born.This may be one possible cause for autism in the years before MMR, but we will never know.

If I didn't have all these medical issues,and problems with regression,I might well be a deluded fool spouting neurodiverse BS,making the same sort of claims about my head banging that Michelle Dawson did about her cutting herself.Like Johnathan,I don't expect a cure,but I am very grateful I have been able to survive all the acute infection,and organ failures to get to the point where I have some good explanations,and worthwhile treatments.Even if they are not coming from mainstream sources.I am convinced in a hundred years time,people like Andrew Wakefield, and the better DAN! doctors will be recognized as pioneers,much the same way those who said diseases were caused by microorganisms in the 16th and 17th centuries were.

I wonder if you'd update the section "It's Not About Me" from the 1 in 150 figure to 1 in 100, as per the CDC's current statistics?

Thank you for what you do here.

My answer to that of course is ... because we are polluting our kids.

But reverse engineer that question for a minute.


If we were polluting our kids, via food, water, air... if we were over vaccinating our kids... what would you expect to see?

Wouldn't you expect to see seizures? Neurological impairments? Learning disabilities? Autoimmune disorders? Lab tests that show kids full of metals?

And that is what we are seeing.

Well... I got to this blog by reading the posting on article: "Autism and Potential Environmental Causes - Maternal Antibody IgG"

The article is interesting. However, I think it reverses the cuase anf effect.

Is it pssible that vaccines involve development on rhesus monekys. Then, we give such vaccine to our kids (of one or the other Rhesus blood type) and our kid's immune system reacts to the foreign (moneky) DNA and proteins...

I have a daughter who was just fine until we gave her MMR at 2years. She got major hives a few motnhs later, but appeard still to develop fully normally. At the age 3.5y, we gave her HepB series (Hib with first HepB; Varivax with second HepB)... The third HepB crashed her completely: lost speech, looks to the right side, lost attention completely, vestibular issues....
