Autism Awareness Month – Why Is Autism So Common?
This is a graph of the growth of autism cases from 1992-2008!
FACTS on Autism that we all need to be aware of:
- Depending on the study, about 1 child in 166 or less is diagnosed with autism now. It used to be less than 1 in 1000 about 10 years ago.
- Autism cases increased over 800% from the early 90’s to now.
- Childhood autism cases have DOUBLED since 2003 alone
- Cases of autism in the U.S. have now increased by over 2700 percent since 1991, which is when vaccines for children doubled, and the number of immunizations is only increasing. Just one in 2,500 children were diagnosed with autism before 1991, whereas one in 91 children now have the disease, up from one in 150 just six years ago.
- Some say there is a possible link between the mercury (in a form called Thimerosal) in vaccines and autism. A sharp increase in autism is seen right after a sharp increase in vaccinations in the early 90s.
- Low levels of glutathione seen in autism children (ARTICLE)
- Thimerosal (mercury in vaccines) Neurotoxicity is Associated with Glutathione Depletion ( ARTICLE)
- Glutathione is the “clean up” molecule that removes all kinds of toxins from the body, including mercury/thimerosal. Low levels of this clean up molecule can result in many issues.
Sorry for some of the in depth information, but this really is only the tip of the iceberg. Read some of these article and draw your own conclusion.
Some Questions parents and some doctors are asking:
- Should we maybe not vaccinate children right after birth? Allow their immune systems to mature a little?
- Should we maybe not give so many vaccines at once? What benefit is there to giving so many vaccines at once? How about staging the vaccines?
- Should we not vaccinate children unless they are very healthy? Maybe postpone vaccines until they are?
These seem valid questions to me, but you would be surprised to hear the response you get from many medical professionals…
Read, Learn, Think, and make your own decisions based on what is best for YOUR family.
