For years I wrote about
vaccines and many other issues surrounding pediatric care and most
of this is evident in my new book
I wrote an essay about
Multiple Cause of Autism Spectrum disorders quite a few
years ago and it seems that medical science is beginning to
understand how our civilization has contributed to this major
New York Times reported that a new
study of twins suggests that environmental factors, including
conditions in the womb, may be at least as important as genes in
causing autism. Mathematical modeling suggested that only 38 percent
of the cases in the study could be attributed to genetic factors,
whereas environmental factors appeared to be at work in 58 percent
of the cases .
Experts are saying that this new research will mark an important
shift in thinking about the causes of autism, which is now thought
to affect at least one percent of the population in the developed
In some places in the United States and in South Korea, for
example, the numbers are considerably more terrifying.
“As recently as a
few decades ago, psychiatrists thought autism was caused by a
lack of maternal warmth.
And while that
notion has been discarded in favor of genetic explanations,
there has been growing acceptance that genes do not tell the
whole story, in part because autism rates appear to have
increased far faster than our genes can evolve.
I think we now
understand that both genetic and environmental factors have to
be taken seriously,” said Dr. Joachim Hallmayer.
Medical scientists have
been more than a little bit closed-minded on the autism issue and
are now just discovering what many of the rest of us have known for
Researchers are finally
waking up but have little or nothing to say about which
environmental influences might be at work. That is more than

When researchers tell us that environmental factors are playing a
significant role in the cause of autism,
They are talking principally
about poisons in the environment including poisons to which fetuses
are exposed from existing contamination of the mother that comes
through the umbilical cord
They are talking about chemicals, thousands of them

research to focus on environmental factors such as pesticides,
viruses and chemicals in household products. Throughout the U.S., the
numbers of autistic children have increased dramatically over the
past 15 years.
More than 3,000 new cases of autism were reported in
California in 2006, compared with 205 in 1990.
Autism is upon us
because it’s the outcome of
the 50-year experiment of dousing every living being
with an overload of toxic substances, including vaccines.
Dr. Gregory Ellis
The official Journal of
the American Academy of Pediatrics  disagrees
adamantly with Dr. Ellis but sooner or later they will have
to get off their high horses and begin the process of learning how
to understand the price the human race is paying for exposing
pregnant woman, their fetuses and their young infants to intolerable
levels of chemicals, heavy metals and now radiation exposure.
According to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), 60,000 American
children are born every year with neurological problems caused by
prenatal exposure to methyl mercury compounds from fossil fuel and
industrial air pollution. 
The World Health
Organization (WHO) estimates that air pollution kills
approximately 3 million people annually. 
Air pollutants are known
to produce arterial constriction and reduce blood flow and oxygen
supply to the heart and thus to the brain. Importantly, the chemical
pollutants found in the air have no safe level; they damage humans
even at very low levels. 
The field of pediatrics and the medical media with it are hopelessly
lost when it comes to pinning down the cause of anything that is
happening to the children. It is as if they are totally deaf and
blind to the toxic threat that they themselves promote with their
vaccines, antibiotics, radiological testing, and with chemo and
Children with autism disorders in the San Francisco Bay Area were
recently found to be 50% more likely to be born in neighborhoods
with high amounts of several toxic air contaminants, particularly
mercury, according to a first-of-its-kind study by the California
Department of Health Services.
The new findings, which
surprised the researchers, suggest that a mother’s exposure to
industrial air pollutants while pregnant might increase her child’s
risk of autism.  (see IMVA document “It Matters Where
You Live.”) 
suggests that there may be correlations between autism onset and
environmental exposures, especially as it relates to metal
exposures,” said Dr. Isaac Pessah, a toxicologist who heads UC
Davis’ Center for Children’s Environmental Health and Disease
Pessah, is a
researcher at the university’s MIND (Medical Investigation of
Neurodevelopmental Disorders) Institute, which studies autism.
According to Dr. Garry Gordon, one of the founders of
“There are children
getting autism who did not receive injectable mercury.”
Dr. Raymond Palmer,
of the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, has
studied the contribution of the huge tonnage of mercury being put
into the atmosphere and found, in studying school districts in
“On average, for
each 1,000 pounds of environmentally released mercury, there was
a 43 percent increase in the rate of special education services
and a 61 percent increase in the rate of autism.”
Sustaining all of this
research is a Harvard University study paid for by
co-authored by an EPA scientist and peer-reviewed by two other EPA
The Harvard study
concluded that mercury controls, similar to those the EPA proposed,
could save nearly $5 billion a year through reduced neurological and
cardiac harm to the general population. 
Here we have one of the
most reputable medical centers in the world quantifying the damage
from mercury in the air.
We have just reached the
crisis level on mercury. Now, we’re
finding it in our food, our water, our soil, our babies, everywhere.

biological systems because of its affinity for sulfhydryl
groups, which are functional parts of most enzymes and hormones.
It induces a change in cell structure while disrupting critical
electron transfer reactions leading to cells being perceived as
foreign by the body’s immune defense and repair system.
Dr. Rashid Buttar
What stands out in
severe cases of autism is its similarity to symptoms found with
parents have seen the regression of skills in their children
following thimerosal-containing vaccines,” says Jo Pike,
President of the National Autism Association.
“Many of these
same children are progressing rapidly with biomedical
interventions addressing mercury poisoning.” 
Dr. Sidney Baker, author
of six medical books, treats hundreds of autistic patients each year
from around the country. He suspects that about half of the children
he sees have been affected by
thimerosal from their vaccines.
The statement indicating
“mercury has been phased out of
most childhood vaccines” is a gross distortion of the truth.
The flu vaccine contains mercury and the number of flu
shots given to children has increased dramatically since 2004.

Damages in the News
The vaccine question remains key sticking point as everyone who is
paying attention to the news knows.
U.S. Rep. Michele
Bachmann was the target of harsh criticism last week after she
asserted that the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine could cause
mental retardation. Bachmann made her remarks immediately following
Monday’s (Sept. 12, 2011) CNN/tea party debate.
She had dogged Texas
Gov. Rick Perry on the issue of the vaccine during the debate
because she disagreed with Perry’s past attempts at mandating it for
public school children.
“The problem is, it
comes with some very significant consequences,” Bachmann said of
the vaccine on FOX News following the debate.
“There’s a woman
who came up crying to me tonight after the debate. She said her
daughter was given that vaccine. She told me her daughter
suffered mental retardation as a result of that vaccine. There
are very dangerous consequences. It’s not good enough to take,
quote, ‘a Mulligan’ or you want a do-over. Not when you have
little children’s lives at risk.”
On Tuesday morning Bachmann
repeated the same story on the Today Show (below video), alleging that the
vaccine can have “very dangerous side effects” and that “people
have to draw their own conclusions.”
Vaccines - Perry Lies Again About Texas Gardasil Scandal)
There happens to be a
lot of parents crying for what pediatricians’ vaccines have done to
their children. But vaccines are the holy grail of these doctors and
they will defend themselves and their sometimes-lethal vaccines to
their last dying breath.
Dr. O. Marion Burton, the president of the American Academy
of Pediatrics released a statement criticizing Bachmann’s
Academy of Pediatrics would like to correct false statements
made in the Republican presidential campaign that HPV vaccine is
dangerous and can cause mental retardation,” Burton said.
is absolutely no scientific validity to this statement. Since
the vaccine has been introduced, more than 35 million doses have
been administered, and it has an excellent safety record.”
No matter how many
children are harmed by a vaccine, they will say they have an
excellent safety record.
Vaccines are one among
many toxic insults children must face. Those who administer them and
speak in favor of them need to be seen as terrorists who specialize
in attacking children. Even as civilization is threatened with
collapse they keep up their relentless attack and the cries are
heard in heaven. My first vaccine book was called
Cry of the Heart
and my second entitled
The Terror of Pediatric Medicine.
I have written many vaccine essays since the publication of this
vaccine book and someday I will update it.
The basic reasons to be
against vaccines have not changed and neither has the nature of the
people who promote them. Every parent should study the issue and
decide for themselves. Doctors and medical officials though are not
comfortable with informed choice on the vaccine question and would
rather have them mandated even at the point of a gun.
Medical fascism is alive
and well, carrying on a tradition that will be remembered in the far
future as the dark ages of medicine and pediatric care.
