Question?: Autism Symptoms In Infants

William asks…

Why can’t anyone figure out what really causes autism?

I get frustrated because no one knows for sure. It makes me scared to try for a son because boys seem to be getting autism left and right and no one knows what the cause of it is!

admin answers:

It is a scientific fact that vaccination’s cause autism-or rather an “autism like state” which is the same thing since autism is a collection of symptoms.

The case of Hannah Poling is raising quite a stir. She is now 9 years old. As a healthy and normally developing 18-month-old girl she showed up for her well baby visit and was pummeled with 9 vaccinations, two of them containing the mercury preservative known as thimerosal. Her health immediately deteriorated into full blown autism.

Her case was the first to be settled of 4,900 autism cases pending before federal Vaccine Court. She claimed that mercury-containing vaccines were the cause of her autism. In a shocking turn of events the federal government conceded this autism case saying that “compensation is appropriate.”
http://www.naturalnews.com/022955.html…

I think that the biological case against Thimerosal is so dramatically overwhelming anymore that only a very foolish or a very dishonest person with the credentials to understand this research would say that Thimerosal wasn’t most likely the cause of autism.—Interview of Dr. Boyd E. Haley by Teri Small:

Parents of vaccine injured children and vaccine injured adults find the bureaucracy is unable to hear them. They find it is so corrupt and set in it’s misguided belief system regarding vaccinations that it is almost pointless to even discuss the sacred fantasy that vaccines are the salvation of mankind.

Anyone who challenges the religion of vaccines is ruthlessly attacked, doctors are afraid to speak for fear of they will be branded “anti-vaccination”. Scientist must only talk of genetic causes for fear of losing their funding.

Doctors fail to report side effects at an estimated rate of 90%.
Many will go to extremes to explain away side effects as anything but what they are.

A proper long-term safety evaluation of vaccines of any kind has never been done-and it will never be done by the CDC or the vaccine producers because these organizations forced them on the population and they know what the study will show..

The vaccine autism link will never be debunked because the CDC has known for at least 8 years they cause autism.

It is likely you have no idea what is in them but you can find our here.http://www.know-vaccines.org/faq.html…

“A single vaccine given to a six-pound newborn is the equivalent of giving a 180-pound adult 30 vaccinations on the same day. Include in this the toxic effects of high levels of aluminum and formaldehyde contained in some vaccines, and the synergist toxicity could be increased to unknown levels. Further, it is very well known that infants do not produce significant levels of bile or have adult renal capacity for several months after birth. Bilary transport is the major biochemical route by which mercury is removed from the body, and infants cannot do this very well. They also do not possess the renal (kidney) capacity to remove aluminum. Additionally, mercury is a well-known inhibitor of kidney function. Http://www.whale.to/v/haley_q.html…

Question?: Autism Symptoms In 7 Year Old

Chris asks…

what is autisme exactly about?

i have a sister, she cannot talk even she’s 7 yearold. some doctor said that she is hyperactive, but, other said that she is autisme. what is autisme exactly about? i’m very confused!!!

admin answers:

Autism -brain disorder that often interferes with a person’s ability to communicate with and relate to others.

Signs of autism almost always develop before a child is 3 years old, the condition is sometimes not diagnosed until later. Parents first become concerned when they notice that their toddler does not begin to talk or does not respond and interact like other children of the same age. Toddlers with autism do not usually develop speech normally and may seem to be deaf although hearing tests are normal.

Autism also affects how a child perceives and processes sensory information.

Severity of autism varies. Some ppl need assistance in almost all aspects of their daily lives, while others are able to function at a very high level and can even attend school in a regular classroom. This is a lifelong condition that uaually results in some degree of social isolation, treatment can make a major difference in the lives of people with autism. Early diagnosis and comprehensive treatment has resulted in increasing numbers of people with autism being able to live independently as adults..

What causes autism?
Autism tends to run in families, suggesting a genetic link. Because people with autism can be vastly different, scientists suspect a number of genes are responsible. Ongoing research is targeted at pinpointing these genes. Some experts also believe that environmental factors may play a part in causing autism, although scientists have studied several factors, including vaccines, and have yet to identify such a cause.

Brain scans of people with autism have shown abnormalities in several areas of the brain, including those responsible for emotion and social relations. Other studies suggest that people with autism have high levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin, a chemical that sends messages in the brain. However, these findings are preliminary, and ongoing studies seek to explain the brain and autism.1

What are the symptoms?
All people with autism have difficulty with social interactions and relationships. Parents often describe their child with autism as preferring to play alone and making little eye contact with other people. Other symptoms of autism include:

Difficulties with verbal and nonverbal communication. Language development in children with autism is almost always delayed.
Limited, repetitive, and overused (stereotyped) patterns of behavior, interests, and play. Many typical behaviors-such as repetitive body rocking, unusual attachments to objects, and holding fast to routines and rituals-are driven by the need for sameness and resistance to change.
There is no “typical” person with autism. Although autism is defined by the above characteristics, people with autism can have many different combinations of behaviors in mild to severe forms.

Do any other conditions occur with autism?
Although it is difficult to determine, studies show that below-normal intelligence occurs in about 70% of children with autism.2 Teenagers with autism often become depressed and have increased anxiety, especially if they have average or above-average intelligence. In addition, about a third of children with autism develop a seizure disorder (such as epilepsy) by their teen years.3

How is autism diagnosed?
Your health professional will use diagnostic guidelines, established by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), to determine whether your child has core symptoms.4 A child may also have hearing and other tests to make sure developmental delays aren’t the result of another condition with similar symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment of autism is important to make the most of the child’s potential.

How is it treated?
Behavioral training, speech and occupational therapy, and parent education and support can often improve a child’s problem behaviors, communication skills, and socialization. Medications are sometimes helpful as well. A child with autism responds best to a highly structured, specialized educational program tailored to his or her individual needs. However, specific treatment varies depending on the range of individual symptoms, which can combine in many different ways and change over time.

Parents, school staff, and health professionals are usually all involved in planning a child’s treatment.

Question?: What Is Autism For Kids

Linda asks…

What do you think causes autism in kids?

If it’s not vaccines, is it the water kids drink, the food they eat, poor diet, what? What‘s your spin on it? Also, does anyone know when symptoms generally become apparent? This issue is freaking me out.
Thanks.

admin answers:

Thomas in my eyes was born with autism if it was the vaccine every child would have autism even Thomas’s twin sister Kylie would, i think its in the genes and if there are many cases of mental illness in your families then i believe its a factor, if i went back through my families history some members has certain traits of autism and when it come to children like my son Thomas they get it all at once

Question?: Autism Signs In 15 Month Old

Laura asks…

How early are the signs of autism?

And are they linked to vaccines

admin answers:

For some autism they are born with and signs are immediate. A child may not like to be held and squirm to be put down, they don’t smile or sustain eyecontact.

For those that develop autism the signs can start showing before 12 months. I have a son that was dx at 9 months. He did not answer to his name, and repetitively played with the same toy, he was a picky eater, and avoided eyecontact. He is not vaccinated. He has a dx of PDD.NOS

My oldest son developed autism later he also is PDD.NOS and was typical through 15 months. He was vaccinated through age 2.

Is autism linked to vaccines? Autism is an autoimmune disorder, and autoimmune disorders in general are on the rise epidemically especially allergies. I believe that vaccines contribute. The overload of toxins on an immature dysfunctional immune system can manifest in all kinds of ways like autism, allergies, bipolar, ADD/HD ect. Genetics are an integral component. So my answer would be yes indirectly autism can be linked to vaccines in some cases. So can a virus, oxygen deprivation during birth resulting in TBI traumatic brain injury, there seems to be an Rh connection in mothers of autistic children, also many moms fail the triple screen when pregnant who go on to have autistic children. There are so many correlations, its very complex.

Question?: What Is Autism Yahoo

Sandra asks…

Are there any cases of a child developing Autism, who has not taken vaccines?

I am doing some research on potential links of Autism, and I can’t find any information about Autism cases in children who have not received vaccines in their lifetime.
You did not answer my question. Are there any reported cases of children who have not received vaccinations developing Autism? I don’t need to be lectured.

admin answers:

There are parents who said their children were not vaccinated who got autism, but most then realized their children did get vaccines without them knowing about it. For example, the first day of birth, children are given the Hep B vaccine. The consent for this is signed with the intake paperwork, and with all that paperwork, most of it doesn’t get read, so this is how they consented without realizing it. There was a study done in California that stated that those who got vaccines were about 4 times more likely to get autism then those who didn’t. I didn’t look at the study to see if I felt the kids truly were not vaccinated. But, two birthing clinics have come forward and stated that in their thousands of births, no child has developed autism. I imagine you can easily Google to find it, “birthing clinic thousands autism” ought to bring it up. I think one’s in Illinois. What makes the birthing clinics different from hospital-born children? Pitocin to induce labor which is known to effect the immune system, and those with autism have a faulty immune system; then there are the eye drops put into all newborns, and also a Vit. K shot, and then the epidural. Not sure what else is different, but something is very amiss. Children recovered from autism are doing so by receiving treatments for pathogens and toxins due to a faulty immune system. There are so many things effecting their immune systems, that is really is difficult to blame one thing. If you go to the autism forums, most will say that their vaccinated children are more ill than their non-vaccinated, but some say the opposite. So, it’s not an easy answer. Most of the highly successful doctors who are recovering children from autism say that vaccines are a big part, but more so because the children were already subjected to immune stressors, and the vaccines were the tipping point. I think what is best is to go to the governmental websites, like the CDC and learn all about the vaccine ingredients, risk of getting the disease, possible fatalities from each disease, etc. Also look into homeopathy to raise the same antibodies as the vaccines are suppose to. Many get blood tests after homeopathy to show they have antibodies to vaccinated illnesses so they can show their children don’t need them. This would be the best route, for many who get vaccinated either don’t get enough antibodies to ward off the illness or get too high of antibodies. This is what I have learned by researching daily for 4 years. My children are recovered from autism, but it’s much better to prevent it because my kids are still dependent upon diet and treatments to keep symptoms away. You can go to Yahoo Groups on autism recovery and ask the parents there as well. They can also tell you where to find research on it. There are websites that have collections of this research readily available. You can Google “autism monkey primates vaccines” for a couple of new studies done on monkeys given vaccines. They are pretty shocking. Because I am over 40, I have seen children years ago and can compare them to today. The difference is very unbelievable. I am glad I am old enough to have seen kids before all this autism, ADHD, OCD, anxiety, etc. Came along. When you see it in real time, then you really know.

Question?: Autism Symptoms In Adults

Thomas asks…

How can you tell if an adult has autism?

My Husband has been diagnosed with chronic urticaria angie-o-adeema(sorry spelling) basically his mast cells r breaking down, and he is allergic to a lot of things including his own system, his mother told me he was classed as a “slow child”, didn’t utter a word till he was 3….now im adding things up here…and what i see is a form of autism….what do u think?

admin answers:

It is very difficult to explain in one short answer what autism is because it is unique to each person. I disagree that all autism is caused by toxins and vaccines. I know there is a class of autism caused by damage from toxins, but that is not the case with my son. BTW, a good diet will make anyone feel better, autistic or not.

My son has High Functioning Autism or Asperger Syndrome and it is obvious that it is genetic. He acts just like my husband, my BIL and FIL, my husbands brother and father. The only difference being that my FIL and BIL have worse symptoms than my husband and son. Also, my son started speaking quite young and never lost the ability to speak. It is clear that his condition was present from birth, before he was ever introduced to dairy or gluten or toxins. He was on an optimal diet of close to 100 percent organic foods, no dairy, no wheat, no sugar, and something was still amiss.

There is a lot of information out there about autism. I think the best way to figure it out without seeing a doctor would be to read a book about Autism Spectrum Disorders, maybe one specifically about adults.

My husband and his brother were both considered slow when they were children. It is a label that was used at that time because people had no other way to explain it, not that they really may have been slow. They both received speech therapy and still have issues with misunderstanding people in conversations and having a hard time getting their point across.

Here is a great article I recently found by an adult with autism or Asperger Syndrome

http://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/conditions/03/28/autism.essay/index.html

Good luck! If anything, I hope your husband can start feeling better. I know with my husband and son, being sick turns our home upside down because they have trouble expressing themselves.

P.s. Not trying to start an autism argument here. Just letting you know that there are many different opinions out there about autism.

Question?: Rett Syndrome Awareness Month

Donald asks…

If they are gong to make vaccines mandatory dont you think?

Okay I understand why (even if I may not agree) they may make some vaccines mandatory BUT if they are going to do this why wouldn’t they ALSO make blood/allergy testing & mitochondrial testing mandatory too!!!

Too many times I’ve read stories about kids allergic to ingredients in vaccines , i.e. eggs, msg, gluten, etc. &/or someone had a a prior mitochondrial defect that the vaccine just “pushed in over the edge” & now said child is autistic, regressing,

Instead of playing russian roulette with our kids why not mandate these relatively routine tests before giving these kids all the same vaccine as if all these kids are made the same exact way. Everyone is different & they should realize that!!!!

Now Im sure someone will say the cost of this doesn’t pay, but with the statistics saying 1 in 150 kids is autistic do you know how much it costs to pay for disabled kids for the rest of their life!?!?!?! & besides that how can you put a price on a a humans life like that!?!?!

OCTOBER IS RETT SYNDROME AWARENESS MONTH!!!
WOW!
I never said vaccines DID cause Autism (even if i personally belive maybe there mihgt be a link !) I never said that anywhere in this question

MY QUESTION WAS wouldn’t you want to take that extra step/testing just on the off chance that maybe just maybe all these vaccines have something to do with rising autism rates & by doing prior testing at least you will have known in your heart that you did all you could to keep your child safe rather then just be lead blindly by money making pharmacuticals pushing this years magical cure?
Also I just read a VERY sad article about a 5 year old girl from NJ who died from the flu vaccine & that NJ is making it mandatory to get this ages 5-18yrs once a year. Now Im not saying the vaccine itself is what caused this -chances are there was some underlying problem already existing (the article did not give further details) but that is exactly why I am asking this question. Shouldn’t they test for underlying potential problems & then asses the situation from there whether or not administering the vaccine has more harmful or good outcome

admin answers:

I agree they should test for those things but not all will show up.

I believe in a parents right to do “what they think is best” for their child and do not think the government should mandate vaccinations at all.

Dr. Diagnonsense: The writer did not say it was proven but rather opened a discussion on the subject. Much has been written on this subject and the effects of vaccinations on children (most of whom could be found by the testing indicated.)

Question?: Autism Symptoms In 7 Year Old

Susan asks…

Autism and 2nd set of vaccines?

I found out something interesting about my brother who has autism. I was going through some paperwork his teachers filled out about him and when he was 7 the teacher reported that he was developing normally as a 7 year old. Then next years I noticed that all the comments detail him regressing. I remembered that he got his 2nd set of vaccines that’s in the controversy at age 7. I wanted to know what others think about this? The second set might have stumped his development just like the the first set?
Hmmm….charalatans? The government can lie….and who funds scientific research?
It’s easy to say that vacines aren’t linked to autism when you don’t personally have the burden of taking care of an autistic person yourself like I have. You only see the facts but when it’s in your face 24/7 you start to think. When you know your family members better than a scientist or doctor you know your true answers and you don’t need a professional to tell you what’s wrong because you’re just a statistic. They just don’t know autism.
At the alarming rate I think this country is going to get wiped out because autism kids turn into autistic adults. If you’re lucky your child will high functioning but if you’re not then…..that is it. I think you can figure out what happens, someone has to take of them. Or they become homeless….I don’t know maybe the government will do something?

It is possible for vaccines to cause neurological damage at any age.

LOL, “Weise Ente.” Wakefield published a “case study”–look it up — of 12 autistic kids, whose parents took them to him to look at their gastrointestinal problems, because he is a gastroenterologist. The parents happened to mention to him that the problems started after the MMR. Wakefield wasn’t even sure if he should mention in the case study that the parents told him that, but decided to, since the more information, the better. And, as a parent, I know that parental observations are very valuable in health care. So how exactly do you try to replicate that case study? That isn’t the type of study that can be replicated. Case studies by their nature are a call to further research, not the same research, lol. He made no conclustions regarding the MMR in the paper. Anyone can verify that for themselves. The paper wasn’t very long.

“BACKGROUND: We investigated a consecutive series of children with chronic enterocolitis and regressive developmental disorder. METHODS: 12 children (mean age 6 years [range 3-10], 11 boys) were referred to a paediatric gastroenterology unit with a history of normal development followed by loss of acquired skills, including language, together with diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Children underwent gastroenterological, neurological, and developmental assessment and review of developmental records. Ileocolonoscopy and biopsy sampling, magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI), electroencephalography (EEG), and lumbar puncture were done under sedation. Barium follow-through radiography was done where possible. Biochemical, haematological, and immunological profiles were examined. FINDINGS: Onset of behavioural symptoms was associated, by the parents, with measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination in eight of the 12 children, with measles infection in one child, and otitis media in another. All 12 children had intestinal abnormalities, ranging from lymphoid nodular hyperplasia to aphthoid ulceration. Histology showed patchy chronic inflammation in the colon in 11 children and reactive ileal lymphoid hyperplasia in seven, but no granulomas. Behavioural disorders included autism (nine), disintegrative psychosis (one), and possible postviral or vaccinal encephalitis (two). There were no focal neurological abnormalities and MRI and EEG tests were normal. Abnormal laboratory results were significantly raised urinary methylmalonic acid compared with age-matched controls (p=0.003), low haemoglobin in four children, and a low serum IgA in four children. INTERPRETATION: We identified associated gastrointestinal disease and developmental regression in a group of previously normal children, which was generally associated in time with possible environmental triggers.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9500320

After what happened to Wakefield — he was driven out of his own country! — what scientist, with the average amount of courage, who has a career to keep and a family to feed, would dare do a study that shows MMR is a problem? They have made an example of him, that is for sure.

You are right, Wakefield *is* a good example of how science works in controversial, highly political areas of study.

“photoart,” in response to your additional details, it is very sad to think about, but the government is going to warehouse the coming surge of low functioning autistic adults in institutions and keep them drugged up. There just won’t be the money or manpower to do it any other way. I know this is the nightmare of parents everywhere–what is going to happen to their autistic children when they can no longer care for them?

Question?: Treatment For Autism Children

Sandra asks…

What are your thoughts on the link between the MMR vaccine and autism?

I have concerns over the MMR vaccine. I haven’t done enough research to determine what I will do. Have you vaccinated your children…What are you thoughts?

admin answers:

Receiving the MMR vaccine is a risk for developing autism. It is not the only cause, but is often the last straw to a child’s body and brain after being weakened by other vaccines, environmental pollution, an unknown underlying genetic condition, etc. Etc.

My children are not vaccinated at all. They are 5 years and 17 months old. Neither one has gotten the measles or the mumps yet, and I wouldn’t know if they’ve gotten rubella because it is so mild in children it often causes no symptoms at all.

People didn’t used to be afraid of measles or mumps or rubella, before the vaccine. They were diseases every child got. Mothers would take their kids to other kids’ houses when they had measles, to get them infected at a convenient time or just to get it over with.

Even if your kids did get measles, mumps, or rubella, they would be fine. But the reality is, they have an extremely low chance these days of getting those diseases. The measles “outbreak” in the U.S. This year that was so highly publicized affected only 131 people in a population of over 300 million. Nobody died, only 15 people were admitted to the hospital, and nobody had any lasting health effects.

I don’t expect that my children will get measles or mumps or rubella. But if they do, they’ll be fine, and they’ll have immunity for life, whereas the vaccine does not provide lifelong immunity.

If you decide to not give the MMR, just read about the diseases and their home treatments. Read about what supplements help, such as vitamin A for measles. Research how Tylenol and other fever reducers make illnesses worse. Once you have the knowledge, you will feel secure in your decision.

Question?: What Is Autism Video

Ken asks…

Do you think that vaccinations has a big roll in so many children having autism?

I have 2 small children, and lately I’ve been hearing so much about autism and that one factor can be vaccinations. I am terrified of having them get vaccinated now, is it okay if they don’t? will they still be allowed to go to school?

admin answers:

Hello – This is Julie Duffield – valentinewiggins@juno.com.

I have two children who regressed into autism following vaccination. They were so severe, institutionalization was recommened.

When we treated the damage done by vaccines, they improved. One child is considered recovered, the other is greatly improved.

Our medical story is located at
http://www.autismmedia.org/media10.html
scroll down ‘3’ to Julie Duffield

check out the videos by top researchers and professionals on this topic at
http://www.autismmedia.org/media2.html

Also, you do not have to vaccinate for your children to go to school. We do not live in a communist country, and we have rights. Each state has exemptions for vaccines. Medical, philosophical, and religious exemptions. Some states do not have a philosophical exemption.

I have claimed all 3 at various times. Our doctor has signed for medical exemptions, since my son has measles virus in his brain fluid, and my daughter got HepB from her Hep B shot…
But when we moved to a new state, our new doctors wouldn’t touch the medical exemption for fear of losing their license. I have claimed religious exemption, because I’m Christian, and I believe that prayer and meditation can bring me inspiration for major decisions, including medical.

No one can predict which kids will react, and how. Some children die. The majority don’t visibly react, but have problems down the road. How do you know a child was ‘born that way’, when you give them a vaccine during their first minutes of life?

Feel free to write me for more informaiton.
Take care,
Julie Duffield
