**WPTV FL: Growing Concern As More Parents Opt Out Of Required School Vaccinations For Kids -

Oct 01

Selective coverage of Paul Offit–no mention of his rota virus vax, but Barbara Loe Fisher got the last word.

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – WEST PALM BEACH, FL- More students went back to school in Florida last year without the required public school vaccinations and that number continues to climb, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The Florida Department of Health released numbers for the 2013-2014 school year which showed 1.7% of parents used a religious exemption to opt out of the immunizations compared to five years ago where only .9% opted out.    

The trend has parents and pediatricians, like Dr. Celina Moore with Advanced Pediatric of Boca, concerned….

Dr. Paul A. Offitt, professor of pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, summarizes the controversy surrounding vaccinations in a Wall Street Journal column. In the 1990s, he notes, media fanned worries that new vaccines could be damaging children, including thoughts that measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine might cause autism or that the preservative Thimerosal could trigger developmental delays

Nashville Business Journal: New database shows payments from drug and device makers to Nashville doctors

Oct 01

(As soon as I saw this was Nashville, I thought of Vanderbilt U. and Dr. William Schaffner who gets a lot of news coverage telling everyone that there’s no link between vaccines and autism.  He’s also in my book, The Big Autism Cover Up.)

Want to know if your doctor is getting money from a pharmaceutical company? Now you can find out, thanks to a database released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Tuesday afternoon.

The data, available here and required to be revealed by the Affordable Care Act, details 4.4 million payments valued at nearly $3.5 billion directed toward teaching hospitals and physicians during during the last five months of 2013. Although this initial release is limited in scope, CMS plans to publish future reports annually and include a full 12 months of data, beginning in June 2015.

Patients can search the databases for their medical professionals’ name, although a few important caveats should be noted. First, about 40 percent of the medical records included have been de-identified due to inconsistencies or disputes that are still being resolved. Second, only teaching hospitals are covered, as that’s all that’s required by the Affordable Care Act.

WPTV West Palm Beach: Growing Concern As More Parents Opt Out Of Required School Vaccinations For Kids

Nonvaxxing mom vs pediatrician blaming parents like her for disease outbreaks.  Side effects are denied.
Moral of the story: Vaccines can’t harm your child.

Stephanie Seneff (PhD MIT): Sobering words on ASD, Hg, Al and RoundUP

Oct 01

It’s clear that it’s not just the MMR or the mercury in the flu shot that’s making us sick.  Health officials don’t care.  They’re busy rushing an Ebola vaccine to market.  Too bad the press doesn’t look into this and write about it. 

Sept 30, 2014, FoodIntegrityNow.org: The Glyphosate (RoundUp) Autism Connection
Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, predicts that by the year 2025 that half the children born will be diagnosed with Autism. Today, Food Integrity Now, talked with Dr. Seneff about the reasons why she believes that aluminum accumulation in the brain, synergistically promoted by Glyphosate (RoundUp), is the principal cause of Autism in the U.S.Dr. Seneff shared her research as to the biological effects of Glyphosate in combination with aluminum and mercury and how these combinations affect the body and more importantly the brain. Aluminum is an adjuvant in vaccines that makes the vaccine more powerful. Mercury is used in about 50% of the flu vaccines. When combined with Glyphosate in the body, the results are staggeringly toxic. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUP, is not only used heavily on GMO crops but also on many conventional crops like wheat, barley and sorghum, to name a few. Her scientific findings as to how Glyphosate, the most widely used herbicide in the world, works in conjunctions with these heavy metals is conclusive. These findings points to causation of many of the neurological diseases that are increasing in this country like Alzheimer’s, ALS, Parkinson, Autism, Schizophrenia, and others.

Sept 30, 2014, ABC News: Shares of Companies Testing Ebola Vaccines Rise

Sep 30

Shares of some companies that are studying potential vaccines for Ebola climbed after federal officials announced that the first case of the disease has been diagnosed in the U.S.

The Centers for Disease Control said a patient being treated at a hospital in Dallas tested positive for the disease.

Ebola is believed to have sickened more than 6,500 people in West Africa, and more than 3,000 people have died.

The World Health Organization has worked to speed up the use of some experimental vaccines and companies are ramping up testing. Earlier this month NewLink Genetics said it would start safety testing of a vaccine within a few weeks, while Inovio Pharmaceuticals said it would start human trials of a DNA-based vaccine in early 2015.

Why should we worry about vaccines and autism when there’s so much money to be made from the latest “epidemic”?

Baltimore Jewish Times asks why hasn’t there been a vaxxed/unvaxxed study

Sep 30

This is a great letter posted on the Baltimore Jewish Times.
The things the media overwhelmingly fails to cover: Why isn’t there a vaxxed/unvaxxed study?
Why doesn’t the CDC look into regressive autism?
Why is the research of someone indicted for criminal behavior while employed by the CDC used to defend the safety of vaccines?
Why do officials continue to promote vaccines that they know don’t work while blaming non-vaxxing parents?
(AND YES, WE SHOULD ALL SEE THE GREATER GOOD—AWARD-WINNING MOVIE.)
I posted a comment–don’t see it yet.
Last Thing Vaccine Makers Want Is Study
September 30, 2014
In response to Simone Ellin’s article “A Healthy Dose?” (Aug. 29), I would like to add a few points and facts.  If the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the government would conduct a long overdue study comparing the health of vaccinated children with unvaccinated children, much of the controversy surrounding this issue could disappear. One must ask: Why hasn’t this been done?

 

**PBS NewsHour “…many, if not most [adults with autism], will not be able to earn enough to provide for their needs themselves”

Sep 30

I’ve been watching the media cover autism for about 12 years now and I can tell you that I’ve never seen a news story yet that reassures parents about the future.  No reporter has been out there talking about all the options available and all the educational/vocational/residential possibilities.  I want to see where the 40, 50, 60, and 70 year olds with autism are living and working.  I want to see the nonverbal adults, the ones who hand flap, the ones who wander, and ones who have seizures and bowel disease.  If no one can show us those people out there somewhere then officials have a lot of explaining to do.

I posted a comment.

Sept 30, 2014  PBS: Adults with autism deserve a system that allows them to thrive

The picture you probably have in your mind of autism is that of a child. But autism is almost always – if not always – a condition that lasts for life. We are the parents of a 22-year-old young man with autism. He barely recognizes our presence, but clearly knows us better than most other people. He cannot speak, but he can read and type to communicate on an app for his iPhone. He cannot use a spoon or button his clothes, but can find Barney videos on YouTube. He is completely unaware that cars are dangerous and cannot cross a street without assistance. He is a representative of the many with autism who are not well known to the media, or to society - not the verbal, gifted, and in some ways sympathetic Rain Man, but the ones with very little social awareness, scattered skills and often challenging behaviors. He is also an example of the obstacles faced as children with autism grow into adulthood. After age 21, his schooling ended. But his needs didn’t change. He has always needed 24/7 care, and he always will. . . .

But let’s not pretend: all of these needs are so much harder to provide for individuals with autism. And, many, if not most such individuals, will not be able to earn enough to provide for their needs themselves, at least in our present system. . . .

Outside residential services are typically a group home or, for a higher functioning adult with autism, may even be an apartment. The hitch is that the number of disabled individuals needing outside residential services vastly outnumbers the spots available. Thus, waiting lists that can be, for all practical purposes, almost infinitely long. It is not unheard of for a widow in her 80s to be forced to keep caring for her autistic son in his 60s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daily Mail: Mike Nichols “was left permanently hairless after a botched whooping cough vaccination”

Sep 30

 
Mike Nichols was addicted to drugs when he met Diane Sawyer

When Diane Sawyer met Mike Nichols, the Oscar, Grammy and five-time Tony winning director was a drug addict, hooked on the sleeping pill Halcion, and floating in a black depression.

He was having a nervous breakdown and lost in ‘Halcion madness’ with thoughts of going crazy, losing all his money and dying….

Diane was the impetus for Nichols getting help.

He had another bombshell secret to confess. He was left permanently hairless after a botched whooping cough vaccination at age four. He’s always worn a wig, fake eyebrows almost his entire life. There is not a hair on his body.

Time to give up on IACC

Sep 30

It makes me angry to think about Megan Davenhall going to IACC, having to beg these people to do something.  Insel has spent years covering up the autism epidemic.  He loves to feign confusion and ignorance to justify IACC’s failure to DO ANYTHING.  He’s covered in detail in my upcoming book–including his testimony at congressional hearings.
 THAT’S ALL THERE IS FOLKS – the Government can do Nothing more about Autism
Thats_all_folksBy Anne Dachel Age of Autism has had several stories recently about the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee meeting on Sept 23, 2014.  I was impressed by what was said by an autism mom, Megan Davenhall, from Virginia.  She used her six minutes of comment time to try and wake committee members up to the reality of regressive autism and ask what they intend to do about it.

Yahoo News: AUTISM “expected to soar nearly 700 percent by 2030″

Sep 29

YAHOO NEWS WON’T LET ME POST………no matter…THIS IS INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s about the lack of doctors who know about autism in adults.
WHY DON’T DOCTORS KNOW HOW TO TREAT AUTISTIC ADULTS????????????????
I have a number of MDs on my contact lists………..WHY WEREN’T YOU TRAINED TO DEAL WITH THESE DISABLED PEOPLE IN MED SCHOOL?
Surely a disorder affecting almost 2 percent of the population should have been a major focus in your training.
What’s the matter with all the big name universities educating doctors?  Don’t autistic people matter?
OR MAYBE AUTISM DIDN’T EXIST EVERYWHERE, like it does today.  Maybe no one in medicine was taught about autism BECAUSE ALMOST NO ONE HAD THE DISORDER.
Autism isn’t a medical curiosity.  It’s not a puzzle we have all the time in the world to figure out.  It’s a disaster.  It’s crippling a generation of children.  No official can tell us why and no one cares.

Hospitals Adapting for Adults With Autism (Op-Ed)  PHOTO: Yahoo News

Over the last several decades, the number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has skyrocketed. Today, the United States spends $11.5 billion a year on children with ASD, a complex, lifelong developmental disability that affects an individual’s ability to communicate and interact with others.

But what happens when these kids become adults? Relatively few physicians specialize in treating adults on the spectrum, and as a result, these patients often don’t receive the type of support and attention they need. 

In addition, research has indicated that a majority of physicians aren’t comfortable caring for adults with ASD. Due to these roadblocks, adults with autism have been called “the forgotten patients.” We in medicine really need to reverse our thinking on adult autism because the number of patients is on the rise .

Currently, there is a significant need for providers who care for adults with ASD. It’s estimated that one out of 68 babies born in the U.S. are on the autism spectrum. The shortage of coordinated care is likely to get worse as pediatric patients with ASD transition to adulthood, and this patient population is expected to soar nearly 700 percent by 2030.  

Comment: This story is puzzling.  It leaves readers with lots of questions: Why do hospitals have to adapt to adults with autism? Shouldn’t medical professionals ALREADY KNOW ABOUT AUTISM and how to deal with affected people? Why has the number of CHILDREN with ASD “skyrocketed” in the last 20 years? Why isn’t there a comparable number of adults (one in 68) with autism? Why aren’t doctors able to treat adults with autism? There should be physicians used to dealing with the one in 68 autistic adults.  AND IF THERE AREN’T ONE IN EVERY 68 forty, sixty and eighty year old with autism—something is very wrong,  Officials tell us that that’s what the autism rate is for eight year olds. AUTISM: the disorder with no known cause or cure affects children EVERYWHERE.  No one has ever found a comparable rate among adults.  That simple fact should be scaring us all.  There’s nothing a mainstream doctor can tell a new mom whose baby was born perfectly healthy and is developing normally so that her child doesn’t also stop talking, lose learned skills and regress into autism by age two. Maybe when this generation of disabled children ages out of school and is dependent on the taxpayers for its support and care—maybe then we’ll get serious about addressing autism as the national health crisis that it clearly is.
