1 out 88 Children Now Have Autism – Vaccine Schedule the Only Common Factor

autism stats 1 out 88 Children Now Have Autism   Vaccine Schedule the Only Common Factor

Health Impact News Editor Comments: Becky Estepp, the parent of a child with autism and the communications director for Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law & Advocacy, was on Fox News talking about the new CDC numbers on Autism released last week. Generally when the mainstream media covers this story, they edit out anything that has to do with vaccines and consider it a taboo subject. But if you listen until the end of the interview, you will see that they allowed her segment to run with her admitting that studies have already shown that environmental factors are contributing to the epidemic rise in Autism, and that the only common factor in all children across the U.S. is the vaccine schedule. The fact that she was allowed to say this on Fox News is amazing. The Elizabeth Birth Center for Autism Law and Advocacy will join a coalition of Autism groups in a press conference on World Autism Day tomorrow, April 2. Details below the video.


 

Catastrophic Autism Rate Now 1 in 88, 1 in 54 Boys

“When will the federal health authorities wake up?  Will it be 1 in 25? One in 10? How many children have to suffer from autism to call this an emergency?”

The Elizabeth Birth Center for Autism Law and Advocacy joins a Coalition of Autism Groups Calling a Press Conference on World Autism Day to Blast HHS’ Ongoing Failures

New York, NY, March 30, 2012 – Grassroots autism advocacy organizations representing more than 100,000 autism families will hold a press conference Monday, April 2, 2012, World Autism Day, at 11 a.m. at Hilton Manhattan East, 304 East 42nd St., to push for official recognition of autism as a national public health emergency and to analyze the federal health authorities’ ongoing failure to respond.

Today the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced new prevalence rates among 8 year olds from 2008 as 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys.  “These numbers are staggering,” said Katie Wright, daughter of Autism Speaks co-founders Bob and Suzanne Wright and board member of the National Autism Association.  “When will the federal health authorities wake up?  Will it be 1 in 25? One in 10? How many children have to suffer from autism to call this an emergency?”

Recent research from Stanford University conclusively shows that environmental triggers account for most cases of autism, not genetic predisposition.  “Parents have been calling on the NIH to study environmental factors for decades, but almost all the money has gone into genetic studies.  No matter how high the autism rate soars, the CDC’s continued denial of an autism epidemic is certitude comparable to death and taxes,” said Mark Blaxill, Editor-at-Large of Age of Autism online newspaper.

These advocacy groups believe that ongoing government research appears to be driven by corporations that fear being implicated in any environmental relationship with the autism epidemic and that these apparent conflicts of interest must be exposed.

The organizations call for three urgent action steps:

  1. Secretary Sebelius should declare a national health emergency and order the NIH and CDC to shift their research focus to prevention efforts, especially investigation of long overlooked environmental factors.
  2. The Government Accounting Office should initiate a study of past research funding that has ignored environmental causes.  We need to understand whether this was the result of lobbying to avoid possible liability that might be uncovered with examination of environmental triggers.
  3. The U.S. House of Representatives Government Reform Committee should initiate promised hearings as soon as possible on the failure of federal health agencies in appropriately responding to this epidemic. It has been about ten years since this Committee examined the role of the federal authorities in the autism epidemic. We can think of no other instance of any comparable epidemic that has gone on so long without Congressional oversight.

Grassroots organizations represented at the press conference: Age of Autism, AutismOne, Autism Action Network, Autism File USA, Autism Trust USA, The Canary Party, Center for Personal Rights, Citizens for Health, The Coalition for Safe Minds, Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy, Focus Autism, Generation Rescue, National Autism Association, Talk About Curing Autism

What Can You Do?

If you are frustrated by the CDC’s complete lack of concern over almost 2% of our boys being affected by autism, take action now!

Go to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform’s Facebook page to post about your personal concerns and call for hearings on the autism epidemic.

We want the U.S. House of Representatives Government Reform Committee to initiate promised hearings as soon as possible on the failure of federal health agencies in appropriately responding to the autism epidemic. It has been ten years since this Committee examined the role of the federal authorities in the autism epidemic.

We also want Chairman Darrell Issa to ask for a GAO Report on autism research funding. The Government Accounting Office should initiate a study of past research funding that has ignored environmental causes. We need to understand whether this was the result of lobbying to avoid possible liability that might be uncovered with examination of environmental triggers.

Diet Soda Sales Plummet as Consumers’ Understanding of Deadly Health Risks Grow

Diet Soda Sales Plummet as Consumers’ Understanding of Deadly Health Risks Grow

Soda consumption is now in “freefall,” having dropped to its lowest point since 1995, with diet sodas taking the greatest hit.

One of the largest studies of its kind found that drinking just two diet drinks a day can increase your risk of an early death from heart disease by 50 percent. Previous research looking at aspartame toxicity also found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia.

Obesity Now Threatens to Overtake Hunger as Global Health Concern Number One

Obesity Now Threatens to Overtake Hunger as Global Health Concern Number One

In 1950, the number of starving individuals on Earth was estimated to be around 700 million; 100 million people, primarily in rich countries, were obese. By 2010, the world’s hungry had marginally grown to 800 million, while the number of obese citizens of the world had exploded to 500 million. Estimates suggest that by 2030, more than one billion people, worldwide, will fall into the obese category.

U.S Congressman: CDC Can’t be Trusted Regarding Vaccine Safety

U.S Congressman: CDC Can’t be Trusted Regarding Vaccine Safety

Congressman Bill Posey’s strong resolve and demands for transparency were evident as he discussed the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s handling of vaccine safety studies which affect “our most precious resource in our nation – our children.” The 30-minute interview, conducted by vaccine industry watchdog, PhD biochemist Brian Hooker, delves into what Posey called “the incestuous relationship between the public health community and the vaccine makers and public officials.”

The Florida legislator, known as “Mr. Accountabililty,” did not mince words when criticizing current and past CDC officials including indicted fraudster Dr. Poul Thorsen; CDC director turned Merck Vaccine President Dr. Julie Gerberding; and the agency’s current spokesperson regarding autism and vaccines, Dr. Coleen Boyle.

Congressman Posey said, “The CDC can’t be trusted regarding investigating vaccine safety. Huge conflict of interest. I think the CDC should be investigated.”

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts that Gardasil will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts that Gardasil will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time

In an interview with Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, he predicts that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time. Dr. Dalbergue believes that at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill young girls, serves no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers.

Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How big pharma has corrupted healthcare

Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How big pharma has corrupted healthcare

An important new book by a recognized medical research expert describes Big Pharma as akin to the Mafia. In an interview conducted by our colleagues at ANH-Europe, Dr. Peter C. Gøtzsche exposes the flaws of the drug approval system, our reliance on dangerous drugs, and the deadly co-dependence between regulators and industry. Dr. Gøtzsche is co-founder of the highly respected Cochrane Collaboration and Cochrane Reviews, a leading journal of evidence-based medicine. The interview is particularly timely now that the FDA has decided to remove restrictions on the dangerous drug Avandia.

Dr. Gøtzsche’s new book, Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare, points out that the pharmaceutical industry is allowed to test their own drugs, and thus effectively be their own judge. He calls this a threat to safe medicine and asks for open access to all research data, including raw data, because otherwise, data can be easily suppressed and conclusions manipulated by industry.
