America is still first at a few important things, like our Budget deficit, and our Military on steroids, but concerning Dementia and Autism, out of 192 countries we are #1. Autism is past epidemic level with one in fifty or less (some say as low as 1 in 28 in boys) being diagnosed with this scourge. With these numbers you are talking close to seven million inflicted Americans. The drain on the families emotions and assets, the social programs all overloaded and cutting back, and a government turning a blind eye, is egregious.
What causes, triggers or exacerbates the condition? Why the meteoric rise in the disorder? Why is so little spent on research compared to many other afflictions of lesser severity or priority? For an issue of such magnitude to breed so little apparent concern from our health leaders is flabbergasting and very frustrating to say the least, but just maybe it is the truth they don’t wish us to know. The meteoric rise in Autism just happens to coincide with the concerted effort to mass vaccinate the US population and really kicks off into overdrive when the first Genetically Modified foods entered our diets, so lets delve into that a little deeper …
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) defines Autism in this fashion: Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a group of developmental disabilities characterized by impairments in social interaction and communication and by restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior. Symptoms typically are apparent before age 3 years. The complex nature of these disorders, coupled with a lack of biologic markers for diagnosis and changes in clinical definitions over time, creates challenges in monitoring the prevalence of ASDs.
There is so much research and real world observations linking vaccines to autism that to rehash even the best, is old news. But a serious mistake by the CDC is discounting the personal observations of loving and caring parents by the hundreds of thousands as they observe the radical changes in their children immediately following a series of vaccinations. These are valid observations discounted a vast majority of the time because the parents have no formal medical background or chalked up to “the shots triggered an existing condition”, What condition, are so many of us predisposed to this “Trigger”, and if we are, is it in fact the vaccines pulling this trigger millions of times? Shouldn’t that in itself make the warning bells scream?
Many unfortunate children in the USA have been awarded compensation by the Vaccine courts under the Vaccine Injury Claims Program, due to vaccines directly causing adverse/harmful effects. The amount awarded totals $2,704,762,675.55 between the years 1989 and 2013.
Many of these awards are due to brain damage caused by certain vaccine components crossing the blood brain barrier, that ultimately leads to Autism. The government has conceded several cases, based solely on the merit of the evidence presented, and did not even fight the case indicating they are conceding that a direct link between the MMR and other vaccines received and Autism exists.
The federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has awarded at least 85 judgments for vaccine-induced autism, and there where many … many cases were justice was not seen.
According to the government these people aren’t supposed to exist. We are being told over and over again that vaccines cannot cause Autism, vaccines have never caused autism, and vaccines never will cause autism. Except that according to the governments own program findings and huge number of (totaling billions) compensation awards … they do and they are! You can’t have it both ways !!!

We are also getting scientific indications the Genetically Modified foods (GMO’s) may be responsible for exacerbating the Autism scourge. In October 2011, Dr. Huber gave a talk in Germany about the physiological, neurological, and behavioral symptoms of pigs, cows, and rats fed genetically modified (GM) feed. After his lecture, a physician and autism specialist approached him and said, “The symptoms you describe are exactly what we are finding in our autistic children.”
The animals in those studies were fed the same GM soy and corn eaten by children and adults in the US. Both crops are outfitted with bacterial genes that allow them to survive being sprayed with herbicide, which kills plants. As a result, higher residues of toxic weed killer end up inside our food. In addition, some GM corn varieties have an even more unsettling characteristic: their inserted genes produce an insect-killing poison called Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxin in every cell—and in every bite. Although the biotech seed companies like Monsanto claim that their genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are harmless, that’s not what the independent scientists are finding.
So it turns out that our gut and the bacteria it contain are a lucrative part of our body’s support system and if attacked or negated via GMO’s, may result in or trigger/exacerbate Autism. Hmmm … A disproportionate number of autistic children have digestive ailments, suggesting that it plays a significant role in the disease. A Harvard study in 2010, for example, stated that “Gastrointestinal disorders and associated symptoms are commonly reported.” An earlier Harvard and Mass General Hospital study found that most autistic children whom they examined had some type of GI symptom, food allergy, or absorption problem. A 2006 study found that “A history of GI symptoms was elicited in 70% of children with ASD compared with 28% of children with typical development.”
The relationship between digestive health and autism is controversial. What is undeniable, however, is that numerous healthcare practitioners report greater success when they address the gastrointestinal disorder as part of their autism treatment protocol. For some, gastrointestinal intervention is the only intervention that is necessary.

The answers are very difficult to come by, and more is hidden from us than we can even guess. The independent research proving the harm and connections between Vaccines, GMO’s and Autism is so easy for so many of us to see but we are severely handicapped by a government, legal and regulatory roadblock that is relentless. These two industries both enjoy immunity from prosecution, share most of their executive officers with the government (revolving door) and spend obscene amounts of cash lobbying our representatives, while millions of Americans and their families suffer this onslaught.

Autism is still rising in this country and has a global growth rate of about 14%. But again we are number one and there is no end in sight. Soon there will be ten million afflicted and not to long after that twenty million, and then what? America is the most vaccinated, highest GMO consumption country … with an exploding increase in Autism, coincidence only reaches so far.
Were is the massive funding of research to find a solution to this debilitating affliction. And therein lies the real problem, why can we spend billions to figure out how to put a man on the moon, to map the genome, billions to fund dictators and terrorists across the globe to forge our interests, but relatively nothing on solving the biggest blight on American society in all modern history and an oncoming tsunami we may not be prepared for? I will leave you with this thought “Is it because they already know the answers” …
10 interesting facts about Autism by: Dylan Nord
1 – Autism affects one in every 50 schoolchildren in the United States.
2 – Autism is the fastest growing disability in the United States and it is growing at 14% per year around the world.
3 – There is no blood test, no scan, and no image that can detect autism. Diagnosis relies on behavioral observation and screening.
4 – It is widely speculated that Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Andy Warhol, and even Bill Gates are on the autism spectrum.
5 – Autism is more common than childhood cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined.
6 – One common myth is that individuals with autism are not affectionate. This is not true. Although, they may be oversensitive to touch, they can and do show affection.
7 – Another common myth is that individuals with autism are not interested in social interaction. While they often struggle with knowing how to make and keep friends, they do like people around and are capable of interacting socially, but may need to be explicitly taught the hidden social rules.
8 – Roughly half, or 49%, of children with autism attempt to elope from a safe environment, a rate nearly four times higher than their unaffected siblings.
9 – Between 2009 and 2011, accidental drowning accounted for 91% total U.S. deaths reported in children with autism subsequent to wandering.
10 – There is no known cure for autism. However, early diagnosis and early behavioral-based interventions can help children to better develop the communication and social skills needed to improve their functional abilities.
