Autism and Vaccines - yet more evidence

The truth about vaccines and autism is gradually emerging. We can expect the medical authorities (and the denialists who write into this blog to deny it, but the truth will emerge in the end - as it has done with so many pharmaceutical drug treatments in recent decades.

Banned, withdrawn,restricted drugs

The most recent evidence emerges in the Natural News feature.

"A January 10Mail Online(UK) article entitled "Scientists fear MMR link to autism." reported a Wake Forest University (USA) medical study that found measles virus in 70 out of 82 autistic children tested. None of them were wild measles strains. They were all vaccine strains, common to MMR shots".

Of course, the conventional medical establishment will deny this further evidence. It would be difficult for them to accept this now, after denying it for so long, and treating Andrew Wakefield so disgracefully. But there is other evidence, perhaps more important for people who still wonder about giving the children MMR and other vaccines.

We have known for many years now that the Amish community in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA, is completely free of autism. It was like an oasis in the midst of a desert. And they do not vaccinate their children. So you removed the cause of Autism, and you remove the disease.

Now, there is another community that says there is no autism within it.

               "Now if you still have doubts that the media and health officials are honest or know what they are talking about, take a trip to Homefirst Health Services in metropolitan Chicago where thousands of children are being cared for. The doctors there have two things in common with thousands of Amish children in rural Lancaster: They have never been vaccinated. And they don’t have autism.

               "We have a fairly large practice. We have about 30,000 or 35,000 children that we’ve taken care of over the years, and I don’t think we have a single case of autism in children delivered by us who never received vaccines,” said Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, Homefirst’s medical director who founded the practice in 1973. Homefirst doctors have delivered more than 15,000 babies at home and most of them have never been vaccinated.

               "We do have enough of a sample,” Eisenstein said. “The numbers are too large to not see it. We would absolutely know. We’re all family doctors. If I have a child with autism come in, there’s no communication. It’s frightening. You can’t touch them. It’s not something that anyone would miss.” The few autistic children Homefirst sees were vaccinated before their families became patients.

Or perhaps go to

and listen to Dr Mayer Eisenstein talking about why there is no autism in the area his health centre covers.

There is no reason why the NHS should not set up a similar project, leaving children in certain areas unvaccinated, and comparing the rates of autism within the population. They won't of course. But in a sense, that population already exists with that growing number of parents who are refusing to allow their children to be vaccinated.

All parents should join that growing band.
