I Love Warriors

Are people sick of hearing about autism yet? I’ve been at this almost 5yrs now and still I couldn’t tire from it, then again I’m not really given that option am I. Sure those of you that aren’t affected by autism in some way (not many of those left I’m sure) are wishing for people to shut up about it already, more so I’m presuming that people are sick and tired of hearing about vaccines. Oh how I wish we could just shut up and that there was no need to be swamped by these things at every corner but it’s just not happening. So who is at fault? CDC for sticking to their ‘it’s genes, better diagnosing and more awareness’, giants like Autism Speaks that bring in millions and ignore families affected or the health system for continuously ignoring the problem.

There is a light though and it’s with all those warriors screaming and pushing for answers, solutions and action. These people eat studies for breakfast, perform therapies in their home as good as or better than the trained ones making the big $$$ and are ready for the next moment to arise when they can make some big change. Things may seem to die down a bit in the autism world but these people are constantly working, trying to change an unchecked system that has become detrimental not only to these children but to everyone.

Days like today show how on top of things these people are. First off I’d like to say that we know what the true numbers really are, if you hunt around you can find a few studies that look into more current autism rates and can give you an average estimate of 1 in 34 children. Not 1 in 34 boys, but 1 in 34 Children. But for now we have to look at published findings. Everyone (within the circle) was well aware of the CDC putting out a study to give a new autism incidence number. The thing about these people is that they know how to read studies and have probably been through hundreds already. It’s not surprising that this was easily torn apart, the study was complete bullshit and if anything was a slap in the face to families with autism everywhere. So all day a flood of information poured into the network concerning this and I cannot commend these people enough for their hard work and dedication but I am still left to ask this horrible question…..is it enough?

Is the message really getting out there to the people it should or are we just passing the information around to people who already know? I’m sure some are reached; I can’t say that all this effort is in vain but I think we really need to start thinking bigger. There really are a lot of people in this, just today an idea was brought into fruition in a matter of hours and here is one of the results of that. I could scroll through pages of people posting pictures of their children and it has only reached a small group of people. Looking at not just this but also previous endeavours, shows not only the amount of people affected and willing to speak out but also the sheer amount of determination in these people to make change.

So yes I can admit that the message is getting out there but it isn’t fast enough. 1 in 88 officially and that number is; children over 8, only taken from 14 states and the continued falsity that this is genetic and because of better diagnosing and blah blah aren’t you all sick of it already? I’m speaking to you autism families, autism fighters, aren’t you tired? An understate to say the least I know. How many hours spent researching, debating, learning therapies, learning treatments and fighting for a better life for these kids have been spent from you all? All for what, so that most still have to pay out the ass for therapies, so that treatments that actually work are not covered or even being considered, so that more parents have to hear ‘your child will never speak’ or ‘you will have to institutionalize’ or ‘your child will never feel any emotion for you’ or ‘the research has already been done’ when it’s all just not true!

We need to think bigger, grab people’s attention, make a huge impact and inform people, fully inform them. It would be nice if doctors knew the signs of a vaccine reaction and reported it every time, unfortunately this isn’t just going to happen. We need to inform the everyday individual and we need to do it oldskool J

Now hear me out before making any assumptions please.

Although we are big enough, we just cannot drop our lives to do some huge rally to demand change and even that may not be enough. With the time factor in mind I think a more Guerrilla approach is needed and would add to the impact already being made in a huge way. We can’t make time for change but we can take the time we are already using to do it.

Confused yet? I am getting to the point I swear. So there are a few things the vast majority of us all do; groceries, shopping, school, doctor, craiglist/kijiji, read the paper, go to work, just plain old walk outside. Yes the internet is an amazing resource for information but have we seriously forgotten about the old ways? Where are the days of posters on poles, notices at the corner store and flyers in mailboxes? I can’t say it’s all lost because those No Shots, No School, Not True, billboards are amazing and I do know of a few people who hand out info sheets but still it’s not big enough. So what if all of us got together and put out brochures, cards, flyers, take out ads to put information in and put things where everyday people can see. It is an easy endeavour to tack up a poster on the corkboard when visiting your local grocery store, even bigger would be dropping off a pile at the local doctor’s office or hospital waiting room. I have a few ideas on some things but would really love any input or ideas from others.  Our kids aren’t getting any younger and neither are we, we can’t wait for change to happen or for someone else to do it, we need to step it up and get the message out there. We have all this information that isn’t getting out there. I could walk up to 100 people in town and none of them will know the autism numbers, nor will they know it is treatable. Average people need to know the precautions they can take, they need to know that all is not lost, they need to know about organizations like autism speaks and above all they need to know what mainstream isn’t telling them.

So please consider this idea and hopefully in the near future I’ll be posting happy details about the project. Until then, live long and prosper ….and to you warriors, rest easy tonight, you all have done an amazing job.

All Our Fish in One Barrel

 

The IOM; I certainly hope no one is relying on them, for anything. I lash out at them for good reason, time and time again they keep disappointing us with reviews of old studies (and not full reviews, just the end conclusion reviews) and seeming to never produce anything new and useful to us. It of course didn’t surprise me to find another review by the IOM float my way, again they are going to great lengths to deter from what actually needs to be examined and this time they are using very sneaky tactics….that or they really are, giant morons…and I really doubt that to be true. I can’t begin to claim that this is a new tactic, I truly do not know for sure. What I can say for fact though, is that I am coming across recent articles and studies using these same tactics. What I am referring to is the fake out; articles and studies are being put out that seem like they are actually looking into the proper issues, that after all this time, those in charge are finally wising up and going to examine these concerns properly. I’ve seen them posted around, quite often with much enthusiasm about “finally science catching up”, finally there can be acknowledgement about what’s happening to all these people, these children.  As you read through you will find that it’s sort of like a hush puppy. A nice little treat, laced with poison; the illusion of what you want, riddled with things that will hurt you in the end. This is no different, so don’t get excited because they have given you a whiff of a vax vs unvax study, sniff a little harder and the poison will be clearly smelt.

 

The first thing that should be noted, before even the fact that this is only a review and not a study in any way, is that the reason why the IOM is even conducting this review in the first place is not because of our concerns. By our I am referring to the common person; the parent of a vaccine injured child, the nurse who suffered a reaction from a job requirement. They are not the concerns of the doctors or scientists who are speaking up, not even from the statistics coming to light of SIDS numbers, or VAERS numbers or the sudden low birth rates in girls who received the HPV vaccines or the huge rise in miscarriages and still births following H1N1 vaccination. Nope, apparently all our efforts and media coverage and studies and actual numbers that should raise concerns; have not even mattered, have not been heard. The concerns of shareholders have been heard instead. What’s really happening? Who knows for sure, maybe all those parents saying no are actually starting to affect sales, maybe shareholders are getting nervous from all the screaming families and wanting to back out. Whatever the reason it has nothing to do with all of us out there on the battlefield…I don’t think battlefield is too harsh a word either. We are the ones caring and fighting for the injured, we have to battle against something that a huge percentage of people (ourselves included at one time) believe whole heartedly have saved them and continue to do so.

The second part to note is the actual review itself which is going to look at a number of things to determine whether the proposed study will even take place. I personally do not think that they will even conduct the proposed study based on what they are looking at. The very first is actually reviewing past studies, which they have done several times and determined that no other studies are needed; I do not see this changing. Next is determining the design, methods and limitations in conducting such a study; more than likely it will be concluded that such a study will be too complicated to produce. Financial feasibility is of course looked at and why wouldn’t it be, for they do it with everything; every new “treatment”, vaccine etc. goes through this before it is done or put out for public use and consideration, basically whether it is worth the money. Again this more than likely will get a giant thumbs down because it will be seen as a very expensive study and when coupled with the review determining that this is not even needed to be done, it will most likely be scrapped. I saved this part of the review till last because it is a ‘red flag’ issue. Ethics. If you’re a big follower of this….-let’s call it- conflict….then you will understand right away what is happening. For everyone else I’ll try to explain as short and simple as possible. It has been determined (rather slyly and also without proper reasoning) that being unvaccinated is unethical, that saying no to receiving a vaccine for yourself or your child is unethical. So by their definition, they determine (time and time again) that studying already unvaccinated individuals is unethical. Remember, no one is withholding treatment, or refusing to give vaccines if requested; these are already unvaccinated individuals. What is unethical about that? Hell what is unethical about refusing a product, especially if that product has so many people claiming injury.

The third and final part to note is of course the actual proposed study. Now of course at first, everyone could be getting all giddy at the idea of finally getting that vax vs unvaxed study, to finally see for certain if all these people are as nutty as everyone thinks or if they are right and many, many people are suffering because of this. I’m hoping that if they, by some miracle actually decide to go ahead and do this, that they give more details on the proposed study. Going by what information they have currently given; this is going to be a lot of money wasted on crap, again. The very first problem is the groupings; they are not adequate and are not properly focused. By what is gathered here, they are grouping completely unvaccinated individuals with ‘alternate schedule’ vaccinated individuals. This is not vax vs unvaxed and the results will obviously come out skewed. This brings us to another foreseeable problem; the real concerns are not being addressed. This proposed study is examining the vaccine schedule, the focus is on health outcomes of those vaccinated according to said schedule, this will allow them to group unvaccinated individuals with those who have had all their vaccines but with an alternate schedule, instead of fully vaccinated vs completely unvaccinated. The specific parameters need to be stricter and should not be so loose as to include even at birth injections, or one vaccine in the same category as one who is completely free of vaccines. This brings us to the last tidbit; the health outcomes. Now those of you in the loop know and for many of you who don’t …….standard tests are crap. You can have a the whole array of standard tests done that will come up fine, then do one specific test that is not of the norm and voila, there really is something wrong. Those dealing with vaccine injuries know that standard tests will show up zilch even though something is terribly wrong. A perfect example is an autism child suffering greatly from milk and wheat. Some of the symptoms will point to an allergy, most mainstream health officials still will only admit to an allergic reaction in these children even though standard allergy tests will come up negative. However, if you do a urine peptide test, the results will show that milk and wheat are a problem…but even with that clear evidence, they will still claim allergy because there are certain things that at this point in time, absolutely cannot be said. So this will be a very big deal if this study were to be performed, this one little area alone could risk skewing the results into showing that absolutely nothing is wrong when it is possibly that a whole lot is wrong….and getting worse.

So sometime in mid-2012 we will hear from the IOM again, once they have conducted their review and we will meet again here to go over their findings.

Stay Tuned……There’s Ton of Fun For Everyone

It sure has been awhile since I’ve posted, computer crashes set you back immensely and it has taken quite a bit of time to get back up and running again…at least partially. When your computer gets a virus it is a drag, but you can learn from it, properly or the lazy way; this can be used as a great example of a huge problem with our healthcare.

So your computer gets a virus and crashes. Now you have to start from scratch and also take measures to ensure that the same thing, to the same degree does not happen again. So what do you do?  Well you could take lead from our “health care experts/system” and either wait for another virus to happen and try and deal with the problems that arise or you can use the “fool proof” virus protection as a preventative measure  that will 100% assure you not to get a virus.

Yeah Right!

The other thing you can do is actually learn from the experience and take measures from that knowledge without putting all of your reliance on a Product. You can learn what the virus attacks first so you can be aware of the signs and also ways to stop it once it has started, you can back up files to have ready in case of a crash so as to not lose all of your data and you can stay away from sites and downloads known to frequently contain viruses.

Lame example I know but if it relates then I’ll use it; someone, somewhere will understand it.

So now that things are mostly fixed on my end I can get back to chewing up the news and what excitement has been happening since I’ve been MIA.

I’m hoping to get to all of them, which will take time so I think a quick little bit about it is in order…

 

Dr. Andrew Wakefield has finally gotten his shit together and is suing the BMJ and others

A bunch of girls came down with symptoms similar to those claiming reactions from the HPV vaccine, those in charge are keeping things as hush, hush as possible

A seven year old girl dies shortly after a flu vaccine

Mothering.com does and article on VAERS

The IOM is at it again and already preparing to make the results of a long awaited study to meet their predicted results

Fox news reports that MMR is linked to blood disease, but the others aren’t. They don’t know why but encourage you still get all of them

The DSMV is causing lots of talk….this is a sad, sad tactic by those in charge that will cause devastation (yes it’s that bad) to a lot of families

A pause in bird flu research …the reason should have everyone concerned and asking questions about regular vaccines

GlaxoSmithKline and two doctors are being fined over irregularities in its vaccine trials

Mandatory vaccinations are trying to make its way into people’s lives….the people are pushing back

Mass vaccination of polio, causing high cases of debilitating polio

And anything else that comes up while I’m typing about the above. So apologies for the wait but please stay tuned, there’s a lot to go over

 

 

 

It’s Not Something You’re Simply Born With

Oh Autism Speaks, how you annoy me so. I haven’t seen you in my news feed for awhile but today you have graced me with your presence. This is what they put out today and surprise, surprise it’s another piece on genetics. I have to state first of all that this illusion of prenatal testing is ridiculous. We have not pin-pointed a gene or any way to determine whether a child has autism shortly after birth or prenatally. Even though this article states that it has a test for autism, please be aware that this is just a money grabbing scheme. They know a few genes that they have pin-pointed-among the hundreds of other ‘multiple variations’ that have been claimed- that not only occur in those with autism, but those also with other disorders and regular people. If you took 100 people without autism, you will find these noted genes among them. They don’t have autism, so claiming that this test is anything but a giant ploy is ludicrous. Please know that even if they do find ‘something’ they have no treatments. They have therapies and medications that turn your child into a zombie. There are actual treatments that you can spend your money on and they will actually help as opposed to $1,500+ for them to tell you, yes here it is, now let’s make you pay for intensive therapies and pump your kid full of anti-psychotics. Go ahead if that is how you want to do things but I honestly feel sorry for the child. I have spent an immense amount less than that and in 2yrs my son has made tremendous progress, but I’m also not one to look for that easy way out, the one pill cure all that most of these parents are blindly dreaming about. It is not gonna happen; this is far too complex a disorder for a simple quick fix solution. The only quick fix is stopping the increasing number of children affected, but since no one is looking at the actual cause and too focused on genetics, this isn’t happening any time soon.

The very first line tells all, about the motives behind this organization and general researchers of autism.

“A burst of research into the genetics of autism has given scientists insight into the basis for the disorder. Now, some companies aim to capitalize on these findings by developing DNA screens that might one day provide a diagnosis at birth”

Do any of you actually believe that this research is about helping people? Look up the word ‘capitalize’ in the dictionary. This is all about $$$$. Do you honestly believe that the Down syndrome test, which is ‘offered’ repeatedly during the prenatal process, is just there because they care? They make money off of every test done and then for that second test they make thousands more. Do you think sticking a needle into your womb is free just because you don’t see the money coming out of your pocket?

Ok enough of that, you get the point. It’s all about making the dough and maybe as a side effect a possible few kids and families may be helped, but I doubt it.

“That specifically targets the developmental disorder, searching the genome for either irregular CNVs or single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that could explain the symptoms.”

So what specific genes are named in autism because last I heard there were 100s of different possible combinations, with absolutely no chromosomal abnormalities? Are they just looking for irregular or duplicate genes and claiming autism? Can they no grasp the fact that SOMETHING has to affect these genes, these bits of DNA to change?

“These tests are not giving any answers and they are costing thousands of dollars “a microarray costs, on average, $1,500, and that’s without the bells and whistles such as doctor visits and additional gene sequencing”

These researchers are making millions looking at an end result.

“Therapies—a market that UK-based research publisher Global Data expects to top $5 billion in the US in 2018”

Why not do something productive in terms of genes and test children at birth and then after regression? Test the difference between parents who believe that their children were born with autism and those who watched their children regress after numerous vaccines.

Then this load of malarkey “These abnormalities remain difficult to detect until a child is around four years of age or older”… Really cause myself and other parents can tell you differently and correct me if I`m wrong but aren`t most children diagnosed around 18mths-2yrs old after nearly a year of actively trying to get a diagnosis. Isn`t that part of the whole vaccines don`t cause autism argument, that children are diagnosed right at the time of vaccines?

They go on and on about treatments and yet they only mention therapies. There is a huge difference and yet still many, many people –even professionals- still use the two interchangeably.

“The diagnostic holy grail is a molecular test that can pinpoint the disorder at birth to hook children into therapies straightaway”

Yes and yet after all this money spent you still have nothing, absolutely squat really. How long did it take to find out the problem with Down syndrome? If it were strictly a genetic problem, we would have no problem finding it. Before I move on I absolutely have to point out the horrific fact that our health system is absolutely burning itself alive. We can test for Down syndrome so why can’t we figure out why it’s happening? It’s like with vaccines, instead of actually addressing measles or any other, we use our ‘prevention’ methods and cross our fingers that it works and no one ever gets said disease again because we have no clue what to do when that happens. Wow we are truly f**ked, seriously over half of these parents have no idea how to take care of sick children. Look at how many are hospitalized due to dehydration…DEHYDRATION…seriously wtf, we should be teaching people what to do when they or their children become sick instead of focusing every ounce of energy into prevention and if that fails; more prevention. Here take this vaccine and you’ll never have to worry about your child getting sick ever again. Yes I am fully aware that this is not word for word what they are saying; I am however equally aware that this is the mindset people are getting because of the message that is being delivered. Don’t believe me, look at the flu shot. Beside the fact that we’ve seen the studies showing this vaccine to be pointless in preventing the flu and only reducing symptoms by %4, the message is ‘don’t wanna get sick and miss work, school etc. Get the flu shot, save your life and others’. So people go on down to Walgreens, the grocery store or wherever they are putting these disgusting stands and get their shot with full thinking that they are not going to get sick. A few days late they have the full blown flu and have absolutely no idea what to do because all they were told was get this and don’t get sick; no one says what you should do if you actually do get sick cause no one gets sick anymore because we have these wonderful magical vaccines right?

So moving on to thee best part of the article…
“We think that 80–90% of what causes autism is really the genetics. But pinning down the genetic cause of autism has been difficult. Known mutations comprise fewer than 20% of all cases of ASD’s”

These guys really have alot of nerve don’t they? They can only find known mutations –none specified, hell -none is ever specified- in less than 20% yet they, in basically the same sentence they try and claim that 80-90% of what causes autism is genetically based. It will take you a hundred years and you still won’t be able to prove that statement, that very poor assumption. If you just look at the increase you will see that 80-90% of what causes autism is ‘outward influence’ and if you close your eyes really, really hard…….you can hear the doctors whisper in your ear that it’s all genetics, you parent are to blame with your poor genes and choice in poor gened mate because he read an article somewhere 5 yrs ago.

Oh but my uncle, grandfather, parent or other has it, I think. Interesting that you can now diagnose everyone including Bill Gates to fit this idea laid out before you. Instead of nodding your head and thinking fondly of the quirky uncle on your mom’s side, why don’t you actually take a look? Maybe it’s all malarkey, maybe just maybe they came into the same situation as your child and what causes their autism is the same. Who the heck is to say, certainly not me because while my family – both side- are insane, quirky, do things other people would never have the balls to do type of people, none have autism, none flap their hands when they get excited, all of them speak and they do not have anything close to the physical issues my son has. Now I’m not saying that every autism is like my sons, not every child has autism because of vaccines- since the issue is much deeper than that- but I certainly am saying that no child is just born with genes like theirs unless there was exposure to something during pregnancy.

I also do love- not- how they pup every one up with ‘autism is caused by genes’ when they have this;

“Found in less than 1% of individuals with ASD. But this mutation alone isn’t the final word on an autistic diagnosis. Some people with the 16p11.2 deletion or duplication have no or few autistic symptoms”

So in short normal speak: you have squat. No wait, in fact, you have even more questions like why does this make sense to warrior parents and not you guys

“And many rare variants associated with autism present schizophrenic, epileptic or bipolar symptoms instead,”

Hmmm maybe they have the secret recipe? No I think they have just been doing a better job than you guys with far, far less money than you have at your fingertips. They know that autism and the above are not strictly psychiatric disorders, they know that these are things that can affect the whole body and that these are things that you are not simply ‘just born with’.

It’s actually quite sad when you think about it, all these people, families, loved ones told that this is the way things are and there is nothing that can be changed. Now we know that it is possible to have hope, that we can make lives better for these people. Take the ‘Gardisil Girls’ for example, there seemed to be no hope and yet when treated for the cause- or as much as we know at this point- these girls get better. The same type of treatment that is helping thousands of children with autism and that can help thousands more.

This is a false hope “A microarray screening for CNVs pinpointed the probable genetic basis for Lily’s autism”… the beginning of the article mentions this little girl as though they were going to reveal the secret to this genetic test that would diagnose at birth, yet now with proper wording you see that it is all just an illusion. They are hoping to come across one child –or group of children- that will unlock it all for them and we know that isn’t going to happen. These children have different causes and are each affected by so, differently and to such extremes it is hard to categorize them under the same diagnosis. One thing stands ever simply though. There is a cause. In this day to continue to doubt that is to pull the blinds shut and let the world move on without you; because we are. Children are recovering. They are not cured, because we can only do so much and we don’t have the money to research this properly. We can only continue our work while we watch millions spent on areas of research that are not helping a single child or family. Not one. Not ever.

And you wonder while all the warriors are pissed off.

“Despite extensive data collection and genomic screening, these microarrays can only identify an associated genetic abnormality in 8–25% of known clinical cases of autism, depending on whom you ask”

So even if we take their highest calculation of 25%, we still have that amount of children with a genetic abnormality that does not point to autism because this abnormality exists in other diagnoses and also regular everyday people. Still let’s throw them a bone and say good job, pat on the back for you. You took $1,500 from this family all to either confirm there suspicions, get tested earlier for therapies or….what? What treatment can you put together from this information? Earlier therapy, sure that’s a good thing I cannot disagree with however, even with those few extra months or years of therapy, you are only going to get so far. What these people aren’t saying out loud is that this test is not foolproof. Imagine taking your baby in, spending this money and getting back a positive result only, your child doesn’t have autism. Maybe there is no harm in that situation, but imagine the time and money spent, not to mention what impact this or any type of diagnosis has on a child. Then what of the other 75% that may be tested and will be told that their child is fine, only to later receive a diagnosis of autism.

I have to note that this article is truly annoying in that they keep relating to finding these ‘genes’ as the cause.
“But we’re still left with 75% of kids who still have an unknown cause.” No correction, you are STILL left with 100% of kids with an unknown cause and 25% of children that have similar gene abnormalities, which may or may not be related to autism.

“Despite the relatively low diagnostic yield, CNV-probing chromosomal microarrays are the recommended genetic test for autism by the American Society of Human Genetics and the Boston-based Autism Consortium”

Of course they are what else do you have? After how many years and how many billions of dollars, what have you come up with? After say ten years and possibly a million dollars –I am estimating extremely high- parents and others have come up with treatment plans and centers that are actually giving kids back their lives. – In a functional respect- They have also started centers for therapies, groups and so many things that actually help.

I’m so glad that they mentioned Fragile X in here because it’s another hot button issue for me. A gene doesn’t spontaneously break; I’ve talked to parents of children who have been diagnosed with Fragile X after a vaccine reaction. Same story; healthy child, meets milestones then regression day after vaccines, only this time it shows on a test as Fragile X. Saying that Fragile X is the cause is again, absurd. What happened to this gene and other genes is an end result. Our genes reflect our state and are impacted by such. Saying that this is the cause leads people to think ‘oh its genes, nothing we can do’ when that is not true. These kids could actually be getting treatment that would make their lives easier and instead they are basically left in their own world and struggling when it doesn’t have to be that way.

“Most of the time, mutations associated with autism are formed de novo in the autistic person.”

I would love to see where they got this from and until I do, I call BS on this. If this were true to the degree that they are stating it, then there would already be prenatal testing and autism wouldn’t be such a hot topic as it is.

Thinking that it is strictly genes is very detrimental to families. There will be few families willing to have another child based on the information being spat and the risk of inheritable autism. The whole family is missing out when it does not have to be so. I took what I know about autism –my sons specifically- and I made a prevention plan when I got pregnant again. My daughter doesn’t have autism and maybe it is just a coincidence, but apparently so are children dying 30min after receiving a vaccine. Who am I to claim truth when I have no money to do research to back up my claims, yet neither do they. Even ground for now I guess, let’s move on.

“Even at the end of the day, the complete genome sequences of 10,000 autistic diagnoses still won’t be able to predict definitively what the detailed clinical outcome will or won’t be,” says Scherer. For that reason, experts emphasize the necessary role of clinical geneticists, like Schaaf, to help interpret the data and make it clear that genes aren’t the be-all and end-all”

*Applause* And even if it was 100% foolproof, it still would not help us with prevention or treatment. It still will not help these children or their families

Finding the cause in genes in order to diagnose earlier or prenatally; is a waste of time, money and resources

We need to know the cause in order to find the cure. We need to stop looking at everything but the obvious.

Let’s open the box and see what’s inside

Waking up or Watching Children Fade

…..with 21 percent of respondents saying they believe autism is linked to vaccines

Hmmm gee, I wonder why that is? Could it be all that “misinformation” that we are spreading far and wide? Alas, I don’t think its people ‘waking up’. Instead it’s purely experience; people watching children ‘change’ after receiving a round of vaccines.  Though there are alot cases where the child is obviously exhibiting signs of a reaction to vaccines, the parent is either unaware or adamantly against the idea that vaccines could’ve done anything wrong.

There’s a bunch of tiny but very significant things that need to be realized by everyone; especially the above.  The most basic thing to understand is that damage from/a reaction to vaccines is at the base, a chemical and/or immune system reaction. These types of reactions, while very similar, affect everyone differently. (I’m currently working on a project to show this-more in the future, promise) An easy example would be the gut/brain/opiate response/leaky gut/blah blah blah. I’m speculating here so don’t all bounce off the walls with your loud speaker *cough*caps lock*cough* squawking for links to it all. They’re made up, it’s an example. Okay, that clear let’s get to it then. We have 1,000 kids with autism. 76% of those kids have ‘gut issues’ which is 760 kids. Now only 10% of those kids experience just gut damage without the corresponding ‘opiate receptor damage’ which is 76 kids. The other 684 kids have gut damage + opiate receptor damage. While the remaining 34% will be divided with some children having just opiate receptor damage but no gut damage and a few may have neither. But all have autism and all more than likely had a reaction to vaccines or by ‘similar means’. Did you get the point though? A standard study would only show 760 out of 1,000 kids have various gut issues. That’s it, they don’t look for opioids and I’m not sure if they have the capabilities – or the drive – to check if these kids have damage to that part of the brain. Without both occurring at once and being measured, we wouldn’t even have a clue. It is possible to do a urine test that would show high opiate levels if this issue exists. The problem can arise though if you are already starting the appropriate diet. You would have to feed your child opiate containing foods in order to get an accurate measure. It’s worth it to test before you start but in my opinion, if you’ve already started treatment measures then don’t go back on what is already working and know that your child may not suffer from both and that should be some relief because the treatment involves getting rid of two of the most common foods.

Every kids reacts differently and in some cases the subsequent damage is not able to be seen. So when I hear the words “well my child has all their vaccines and is fine” I cringe, ………  just a little. Just because your child is strong enough, lucky enough, or not damaged to a visible degree, does not in any way prove that vaccines are safe. You could take a bottle of sleeping pills and die. I could do the same and live. On your terms it would be concluded; Therefore it is completely safe to take a bottle of pills. No side effects whatsoever.

Here’s a smack my head, drag my hand down my face statement. “My child never reacted to a vaccine” says the parent of a child……who has autism. The other closely following “I saw signs at birth/before vaccines/knew in the womb. Yes I make fun, because it is utterly ridiculous to some degree. Don’t all jump at me now; I’m sure there are legit cases of children ‘born with autism’ but I do dispute that it is a very small number. I am seriously curious though, as to what parents believe they saw in this regard and of course I have a few things to say about it myself. But that’s a whole other post in itself (I’m never going to finish the darn IOM report)

What also doesn’t help is that even though we follow the ‘recommended’ schedule and get vaccinated for the same diseases; it isn’t the same vaccines. If you don’t already know, vaccines are not produced by doctors, the CDC or ‘health care professionals’; they are a product made by companies, several in fact. So I ask everyone who has had a vaccine:

Do you know which ones you’ve gotten?

Which company they came from?

Does your doctor?

We aren’t tracking any of this like we should be. We aren’t even properly tracking reactions, let alone knowing which vaccine caused it. We barely know who is vaccinated or not and we have people administering these vaccines that are highly unqualified to do so. When they’re giving out flu shots at public places like Walgreens, you know something is very, very wrong.

How many of you receive any type of verbal information about vaccines, besides “it fights this disease, this s the only way to prevent said disease, side effects; probably get a fever and be sore in the arm”?

How many have received written information?

How many are made to sit for 15min to monitor for an allergic or otherwise reaction?

Do you know the signs of a vaccine reaction?

Does your doctor?

Do you or your doctor know what is in a vaccine?

Do you know what happens if a vaccine vial, were to break in the doctor’s office……. ok I can’t expect people to know that one, but seriously unless you spend alot of time looking into it; how many of those can you honestly answer right now?

So of course it’s all just misinformation, anti vaxxers yadda yadda yadda. Wow, you must have low expectations of people to honestly believe that peanut gallery bull. I highly doubt that people are just going to suddenly change their minds one day because they read an article somewhere. Something of this nature has to either be enforced into your life or some ‘shocking’ incident has to happen.

People aren’t waking up, they are seeing it. Maybe we’re paying attention more or quite possibly what is happening is occurring more drastically. Look at those on the spectrum over time and see that while each generation does have its severe cases, the general population was affected to a lesser degree than kids today. How many more cases of obvious regression are we now seeing? Give it a few years and the schools will be flooded. We are already seeing it; teachers aren’t ready, there aren’t enough supports in place, we have been overwhelmed for years now, with places housing adults on the spectrum and these places are barely holding it together. There’s one down the street from me that is trying desperately to get more funding just to repair the place. They have no money to do anything with the residents so they spend their time sitting outside on the porch when it’s nice out.

This is the solution; stick them somewhere and let them live and be happy. Now how many threads have I read this on; let them be, don’t fret over treatment and cause. Give them your attention and let them do as they may and then stick them in the worst place possible when they grow up and live a life of what? Of nothing, of doing freely and just existing – barely – instead of actually living; it’s crap, plain and simple.

This article just goes to show how unprepared they are and I am thankful for that 21% who are at least a step ahead by making the connection. With lack of everything and the only light seeming to be with the few that still put on the battle gear every morning, we are in for some work; since we are the ones doing it all. We can’t hope for ‘professionals’ to get on board enough to take over, hell we are still doing battles when the war should not only be going, but fought and over with already.

Alas we are broke, without time and too busy fighting amongst each other to band together enough, to really be heard.

Yet every day the waves of people seem to get bigger and the impact greater. The voices are getting louder and those warriors we all know and love are realizing that; it really is up to us to fix this. That one study to prove or disprove is not going to happen. Seriously if jenny, holly and the like got together they could do it in a cinch.

That’s the thing about autism. Everyone is off in the corner doing their own thing.

Going further into the IOM report

Before we dive right into the preface, let’s count how many times the word rare is used. I count seven. Pay attention to this, it is a very sly way of downplaying things. If you haven’t kept up here it is simply; one side states that vaccines do cause reactions but very rarely, so the benefit outweighs the risk and the other side is asking for this issue to be looked at properly because what they are looking at shows, that adverse reactions are more common than we had past thought.

Since it is still in question –even after reading through this report- this is really a perfect example of how “they” are trying to constantly push that all this is rare, like winning the lottery. You may hear about it but the likelyhood of it ever happening to you is pretty slim.

 

Now there’s a lot I could nitpick about enough to fill up a couple of posts but instead I’ll just skim over them since we’ve all probably heard them several times already and we do have 667 pages to cover.

Thankfully we have a bullet system 😉

  • Vaccines being the leading cause of dwindling outbreaks/us not seeing disease much anymore is in question
  • Because we don’t see these outbreak of disease anymore and aren’t afraid of them is NOT the reason the majority choose to not vaccinate. This myth is also passed around very frequently
  • This article reviewed 12,000 peer-reviewed articles, they did not conduct any new research
    • It is interesting to note that this comes out shortly after a similar review of articles about vaccine safety, only they came to quite the opposite conclusion
    • “….some issues simply cannot be resolved with currently available epidemiologic data…in addition even very large epidemiologic studies may not detect or rule out rare events”
      • We know this already, have been saying it for years and yet the methods have not changed
      • “Some adverse events caused by vaccines are also caused by the natural infection
        • Please keep this in the back of your mind, it is very important. I’m working on a post for it but for now we should note that this only shows that some adverse events will go undetected.
        • “Alleged adverse effects that appear to be immune mediated, as many of them are, are more challenging, in part because the biology is not completely understood”
          • They proceed to go on about pre-existing conditions. These conditions that may have no ill effect on the individual if they were not vaccinated.

What you really get from this preface is that the methods for investigating adverse reaction claims cannot usually determine whether the reaction is from the vaccine or not. Add to the fact that most of the population isn’t even aware that you can report these reactions and that most doctors outwardly dismiss reaction claims and you get a whole different idea than the previous news article about this report is stating. This is not reassuring for the very rare reaction claims. It will be interesting to see if they take any action after this has made the rounds. We need better monitoring better investigation methods and better safety protocols before injection.

 

If 100,000 kids get a particular vaccine and 1,000 have reactions, the current methods would most likely determine that one or less had an actual reaction. Why? Because 300 had a pre-existing condition that without that vaccine no one would have known about or be affect by, 300 did not have enough data so was only concluded as correlation not causation and the remaining will be dismissed because it wasn’t that particular vaccine that caused the reaction but rather the accumulation of vaccine up till that point, with this last set showing visible reaction.

 

Like it or not, this is our current situation. Although the news about this report is only saying that this is a reassurance to those who are concerned for vaccine safety. So far I don’t find this reassuring at all.
