You call Golemina rude? You are rude miss. In this post I have quoted...you are no longer talking about theory or about some made up scenario. You are talking about MY CHILD....and you have a lot of nerve to make any of these statements regarding my child. I honestly don't know who you think you are....to sit there on your high horse and make statements about my child being mis-diagnosed or that sleeplessness is not a symptom of my child's disease?

[Actually the diagnostic criteria stayed them same throughout the 10 year study (87-97), so the numbers arecomparable from year to year:

I agree with the parents who refused to allow their children to be vaccinated. My father was very, very anti vaccinations and we were only allowed to have the polio vaccine as children. We all (5 kids!) got measle, mumps, whooping cough, german measles and chicken pox at various times in our childhood and a healthier bunch of adults you will be hard-pressed to find! Each autumn, I refuse to have the 'flu vaccination like the rest of the "sheep" and manage to keep myself relatively healthy throughout the year (a little bit of echinacea is all that's needed). I also have a "healthy disrespect" for the "conventional medical profession" and prefer to follow alternative methods. However, this can (and does) get taken a bit far sometimes. I can understand the frustration and anger of a parent who gets shunted from pillar to post, each "medical expert" giving a different opinion and the batteries upon batteries of tests that these experts say are necessary to find out what the problem is only to discover that, no matter how many needles are stuck in your arm, in your spine or elsewhere, these selfsame experts remain clueless! I have a similar situation with my husband - five years of extreme pain and suffering only to have them lop his leg off last week!

Kids have been deliberately infected with this deadly virus.
Horror in Harrow.
some parents are total psychos.
Some autistic children given a dose of antibiotics enjoyed a marked short-term improvement, say US scientists.
Only a small number of children were treated, all of whom had been found to have a particular type of bacterium colonising their guts. These bacteria produces a toxin which scientists theorised might be affecting their brains.
"Seeing most of these children apparently improve significantly was very exciting.
"The next step, besides repeating clinical studies, is to go to the lab and try and find out why these effects may have been observed."
Unfortunately, once the treatment stopped, the symptoms reasserted themselves.

What about tetanus? And smallpox?
It's a little ignorant to say that doctor's are "clueless" just because they run a battery of tests. Believe it or not, medicine is a science, and science's always change. No doctor can honesdtly tell you they know every single thing about the human body, and if one tells you that, run. We have to run tests because we can't just eyeball a person and say "Oh, yes, clearly you have an clostridium infection and are slowly becoming septic based on your creatinine levels." That's what tests are for. Blood gas, WBC, etc. . Also, as far as "seeking alternative care", where do you draw the line? At what point do you realize that alternative methods won't help heal, for instance, MRSA infections or certain viral infections? Just curious.
It's good to be me.

BTW Dae... We've achieved fantastic results for autistics by treating the gut for runaway Candidiasis... For just pennies.
MONTREAL - A new Quebec study casts doubt on the popular theory that mercury poisoning from childhood vaccinations can cause autism. The theory has prevailed despite several previous studies around the world that have failed to find any connection between autism and common childhood vaccines containing mercury.

someone above asked for the links to any research:
how many do you want?
Eric Fombonne, MD, FRCPsych, of the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College, London, has studied autism in the U.K.
"From our data, we can say that we have a prevalence that is 62 cases per 10,000 children," he told WebMD in a 2001 interview. "In the mid-1960s, we showed rates of 4 cases per 10,000."
Isn't this the sign of an epidemic? Not necessarily.
"You cannot compare studies now to studies from 30 years ago," Fombonne said. "It would be comparing oranges not with apples, but with sheep."
Children with autism vary widely. It was not until 1940 that this constellation of problems with social interaction, communication, and focused interest came to be called autism. And it was not until 1980 that the diagnosis of autism was formalized.
In 1994, the diagnosis changed again. Kids diagnosed with autism from 1980 through 1993 had to meet six mandatory criteria. The new 1994 definition offered 16 optional criteria, only eight of which had to be met. Gernsbacher says the 1994 diagnosis made it much easier for a child to be labeled autistic.
What is interesting is that if you look up the mumps, measles, rubella [MMR] vaccines in the PDR you'll see that they do not contain thimerosal because it would kill the live virus. The MMR is available in multidose packaging and, yet, there is no preservative – nothing.

However, those numbers were not shown in the article. And it still does not fix the issue that mercury is BAD for you no matter what. I am glad this is an option and will try to exercise it for my daughter. Some suffering of normal illnesses is emminent.
"In fact, in my study the incidence of (autism) is higher in the years when there was no mercury."
When people like me, who are in the trenchs are telling you week after week...
- MDs are CAUSING the autism.
- MDs have NO interest in researching the true root causes of autism.
- MDs block ANY attempts by ANYONE ELSE to do ANY independent research.
- MDs engage in MASSIVE dinsinformation campaigns to attack any who even thinks about this type research.
- The ENTIRE medical community systematically attacks ANY treatments/ideas for the relief/cure of autism that demonstrate ANY efficacy.
