Dy’er Sez: That number, according to a new study by the CDC, is quite scary enough – but it’s even more terrifying when the research revealed that 1 in 58 boys are stricken with the disorder. That’s just over 1% of the entire population of the US, folks.
We are, by far (only China comes close, with the rest of the world far, far behind in numbers of confirmed cases) the world leader in people with Autism – except for the Amish who are, for the most part, Autism free. This tells me that a reasonable supposition for the cause of this epidemic of Autism is something common to a large portion of the population (at least the portion which is ‘on the grid’, so to speak), something that people are exposed to every day which in turn effects a certain portion of said people negatively. I’ve narrowed it down to 4 potential roots:
1 – Something in the food supply (suspects are GMO crops or whatever they are feeding or injecting livestock with)
2 – Something in the water supply (suspect is fluoride – which is a highly poisonous by-product of aluminum manufacturing, by the way)
3 – Something in the air (suspect would be the chemicals being sprayed into the air, commonly known as ‘chem-trails’)
4 – Vaccines
Strangely, with the exception of vaccines, no research that I know of has studies the effects of any of the above mentioned suspects on the population. And the majority of studies (including a report by Congress) seem to indicate that vaccines (specifically the mercury and squaleen in the vaccine) may have something to do with this epidemic.
On May 21, 2003, after a three year investigation, “The Mercury in Medicine Report” (click HERE for the entire report in PDF) was released by the House Committee on Government Reform, and stated in part:
“Thimerosal used as a preservative in vaccines is likely related to the autism epidemic. This epidemic in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding a lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal and the sharper eyes of infant exposure to this known neurotoxin. The public health agencies’ failure to act is indicative of institutional malfeasance for self protection and misplaced protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry.”
The Congressional report also said that the CDC, due to its “biases against theories regarding vaccine-induced autism,” had chosen to fund researchers “who also worked for vaccine manufacturers to conduct population-based immunologic studies. . .” and stated:
“The CDC in general and the National Immunization Program are particularly conflicted in their duty to monitor the safety of vaccines, while also charged with the responsibility of purchasing vaccines for resale as well as promoting increased immunization rates.”
And for those who are under the impression that they took the mercury out of the vaccines, next time you get a shot (or bring your children to get one) ask for the insert that comes with the vaccine and read the ingredience list…I think you may be surprised.
It is obvious that the cause of Autism cannot be ignored anymore, and that serious research needs to be done in order to find out what is causing the disorder. A good place to start would be the 4 things I mentioned…but considering that all of those thing are mandated or encouraged by the government (and industries which sign the paychecks of our representatives)or that the TREATMENT of Autism has the potential to be a huge money-maker, I have serious doubts that we will have any answers anytime soon.

CDC survey finds higher incidence of autism 1 in 100 8-year-olds in U.S. diagnosed
By Trine Tsouderos -Tribune Newspapers
About 1 in 100 8-year-old children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention researchers who will be releasing details of their study later this year.
The rate — significantly higher than the government’s 2007 estimate of 1 in 150 — is sure to make waves in the world of autism and beyond, prompting advocates and researchers to call for more research and more funding for services.
Calling autism “an urgent public health concern,” CDC Deputy Director Dr. Ileana Arias said the agency considers the disorder “a significant issue that needs immediate attention.”
