Grace, The reason RFK jr et al chose the name they did was due to the fact that "All Governments Lie" was already in use. Given that pharma and the chemical industry have so much influence in government to the point the bureaucracies like the FDA, CDC, EPA, FCC all serve those corporate interests, the those interests are now a form of government known as a Corporatocracy. I'm curious Grace, what name would you have selected that would have included everyone whose ill-health at whatever age, could be attributable to collective behaviors of medical associations and corporations who put profits above safety. We may need to have coffee over this discussion.
As the news reports the number of first responders who have fallen ill from breathing dust at ground zero, let's not forget this press release: September 18, 2001 -EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman: "Given the scope of the tragedy from last week, I am glad to reassure the people of New York and Washington, DC that their air is safe to breathe and their water is safe to drink."² https://www.ucsusa.org/our-work/center-science-and-democracy/promoting-scientific-integrity/ground-zero-air-pollution.html#.W5f3H_ZlBPY We have been assured: Agent orange is safe, glyphosate is safe, hydrofluorosilicic acid in your water is safe, injected thimerasol safe, injected aluminum is safe. Its funny how all this safe stuff is making people ill. When the government declares something safe--what should you do? This might be a lol type question.
@Aimee, I was fortunate that the homeopath I stumbled on (probably with some divine intervention) and her training found the right remedy (the third one). I remember asking the homeopath, "what if this doesn't work" and the response was find a different homeopath. I will query my homeopath with what you have provided and just see what comes back. I also see the foundation cracking--I can almost hear it faint as it is. Keep the faith!!
Aimee, Justice Breyer concurring in Brusewitz https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/10pdf/09-152.pdf page 26 references "Impact of Anti-Vaccine Movement on Pertussis Control". It is clear that the majority opinion that parents should be willing to sacrifice their children to this religion of vaccinations that was sanctified in Bruesewitz and furthermore all forms of due process should be forever denied to protect the religion. "Walking on knees" made me curious so I looked in my Kent's Repertory of the Homeopathic Materia Medica under MIND;Delusions; walk--that he walks on his knees. I am not suggesting a remedy here, but it did get my attention. I didn't have time to look under mind "stay young" but I am thinking that a very good homeopath might be able to work with the symptoms you have provided. Was there an opportunity to try homeopathy with your son?
My hope there is a Part 3 where the doors are burst open and those incarcerated are set free. Thanks Teresa!
Kim, If money were no object, I would pay for your whole family to walk the halls of Congress and show our elected representatives what autism in America looks like. Show them the tax dollars which the IACC has misspent making sure that there is no funding for prevention or cures. Let them hear from a different type of Gold Star Family.

Eindecker back to August 17th on glyphosate in breast milk, lets just say the "overweight lady" is still deciding what she wants to sing. This recent announcement: https://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/Brazil-Poisonous-Agrotoxin-Found-Over-80-of-Breast-Milk-Samples-in-Urucui-20180809-0008.html. At the bottom is google translate of the abstract from Portuguese to English. The detection method used HPLC. Beyond that, it it is going to be self-explanatory because it is way beyond my pay grade. Also from reading--glyphosate becomes embedded in protein and can be left undetected if not freed up from the peptide chain. This can be accomplished using enzymes. From the Samsel Seneff paper: "In 1989, Monsanto researchers conducted an experiment on exposure of bluegill sunfish to 14C-radiolabeled glyphosate [89]. One of us (Samsel) obtained the (unpublished) report from the EPA through the Freedom of Information Act. The researchers had found that, with EDTA extraction, the amount of radiolabel in tissue samples was much higher than the amount of detected glyphosate. They decided to apply a digestive enzyme, proteinase K, and discovered that this “caused a substantial improvement in extractability”. It brought the yield from 17–20% in the case of EDTA to 57–70% following digestion with proteinase K. They summed up as follows: “Proteinase K hydrolyses proteins to amino acids and small oligopeptides, suggesting that a significant portion of the 14C activity residing in the bluegill sunfish tissue was tightly associated with or INCORPORATED INTO PROTEIN” (present authors’ emphasis). In this context it is important to recall that a 60- to 120-fold higher detection level of BMAA was obtained following protein hydrolysis of contaminated proteins [84]." The Washington State Univ. study likely missed what was present by not using an extraction process to free up glyphosate or its metabolite. Abstract: ABSTRACT: Glyphosate is the pesticide with the highest potential risk to human health because it is the most commercialized in the world, in Brazil and in Piauí. Based on this reality, this study aimed to evaluate the contamination of maternal milk by glyphosate agrotoxic in puerperas attended at public maternity hospitals in Piauí. We adopted a cross-sectional descriptive and cross-sectional study design applied in the municipalities of Teresina with 164 participants, Oeiras with 27 and Uruçuí with 13 participants. A method of laboratory analysis of the samples of breast milk applied to the technique of high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to ultraviolet radiation detection diode, through the derivatization reaction of glyphosate and its metabolite aminomethylphosphonic acid by 9-fluorenylmethyl chloroformate. After experimental tests, the method chosen for the analysis of breast milk samples was the isocratic gradient using the solvent acetonitrile 10%. It was tested in triplicate and the presence of glyphosate and aminomethylphosphonic acid in chromatographic peaks in the range of 263 nanometers (nm), with a correlation coefficient (r) equal to 0.9993, calibration and confirmation of its efficiency and linearity. Analysis of breast milk samples was limited to the detection of both substances. A total of 62.5% of the samples collected in Oeiras and Uruçuí were detected, with 64% of them being glyphosate or aminomethylphosphonic acid. When disaggregating by municipality, contamination was verified in 46.1% and 83.4% of samples analyzed from Oeiras and Uruçuí, respectively. It was concluded that the contamination of the mother's milk by the agrotoxic glyphosate was high, proving its severity and importance as a risk factor for the health of the woman and the child. ABSTRACT: Glyphosate is a herbicide with the greatest potential risk to human health because it is the most commercialized in the world, in Brazil and in the State of Piauí. Based on this reality, this study aimed to evaluate the contamination of maternal milk by glyphosate agrotoxic in puerperas attended at public maternity hospitals in Piauí. We adopted a descriptive correlational study of cross-sectional applied in the municipalities of Teresina with 164 participants, Oeiras with 27 and Uruçuí with 13 participants. We developed a method of laboratory analysis of the samples of breast milk applied to the technique of high-performance liquid chromatography coupled photodiode detector array, through the derivatization reaction of glyphosate and its metabolite aminomethylphosphonic acid by 9-fluorenylmethyl chloroformate. After experimental tests the chosen method for the analysis of the samples of breast milk was the isocratic gradient using the acetonitrile solvent to 10%. It was tested in triplicate and when passing through the detector we verified the presence of glyphosate and aminomethylphosphonic acid in chromatographic peaks in the range of 263 nanometers (nm), with correlation coefficient (r) equal to 0.9993, which led to the construction of the calibration curve and confirmation of its efficiency and linearity. Analysis of breast milk samples was limited to the detection of both substances. A total of 62.5% of the samples collected in Oeiras and Uruçuí were analyzed, where we detected presence of glyphosate or aminomethylphosphonic acid in 64% of them. When disaggregating by municipality, contamination was verified in 46.1% and 83.4% of samples analyzed from Oeiras and Uruçuí, respectively. We concluded this study by showing the high contamination of the breast milk by glyphosate agrotoxic, proving its severity and importance as a risk factor for the woman's health. Comments made in the interest of science.
Is anybody having trouble with the on-line donation working specifically when entering the expiration date?
Gary, its the same deliberate deception with percentage caries reductions attributed to fluoridation. The CDC, dentists use percent reductions which inflate fluoridation's value when its absolute differences that tell the truthful story of how ineffective fluoridation is: "In the largest dental study in the United States, for example, the average difference in tooth decay was just 0.6 tooth surfaces, which is less than 1% of the 100+ tooth surfaces in a child’s mouth. (Brunelle & Carlos 1990). Studies from Australia have found even less flattering results, with one large study finding no difference in DMFS, and others finding differences of just 0.12 to 0.3 tooth surfaces. (Spencer 1996). ....." http://fluoridealert.org/studies/caries02/
Got ahead of myself-- How are the "95% CI for difference" values established?
Anybody care to explain how in " Test and CI for Two Proportions" where the numbers
Lets be clear--Dewayne Johnson's killer is not only Monsanto, but the EPA who colluded, conspired with Monsanto to kill Mr. Johnson. It is Dr. Lorelei Mucci , of the Harvard School of Public Health, the go to for Monsanto (and other toxic, poisonous industries) looking for an alibi (and paid handsomely) to vouch that Monsanto was no where near the crime scene when Mr. Johnson was repeatedly and with malice poisoned. Lets just be real damn clear!

Kim, the photo breaks my heart, but it also outrages me. 18 years and "they" have ignored you and your daughters. Broken children; broken families; broken lives; broken policies; broken government; broken institutions; broken trust; broken hearts.
Linda, pediatricians will never earn the right to be off-leash when their medical training is so sloppy, grounded in pharma dogma; not good science or good health.
Sunday's Dr. Fox--American Government Undermines World Health. Further in the column, Dr. Fox states the premise; that if you have to ask the question the answer is already known. https://www.uexpress.com/animal-doctor/2018/8/5/american-government-undermines-world-health DEAR READERS: Andrew Jacobs, in his July 9 New York Times article “Opposition to Breast-feeding Resolution by U.S. Stuns World Health Officials,” reports that “the U.S. delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended deliberations” at a United Nations-affiliated World Health Assembly of hundreds of global government delegates. The topic was a resolution, based on decades of research, ”that mother’s milk is healthiest for children, and countries should strive to limit the inaccurate or misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes.” Countries such as Ecuador were threatened with punishing trade measures and withdrawal of U.S. military aid if they did not withdraw the resolution. So can ”we the people” in the United States trust government regulatory agencies when it comes to other matters? These include the safety and efficacy of vaccines for our children and pets; the risks of pesticides on the crops that we and farmed animals consume; and the quality and safety of manufactured pet foods and baby foods. Trust, transparency and accountability are the hallmarks of democracy and corporate responsibility. Such an exhibition of U.S. pandering to, and bullying for, corporate interests at this international world health gathering gives new credence to the term “ugly American.” It is up to us, the people, to make America first in ethics, honesty, justice and compassion -- rather than a nation of corporate hegemony and corruption.
Aimee, Cia--"I know that most American families have to have both parents work...." Are we identifying a symptom or a problem? Hopefully other social movements will be able to move us back to where a single income household will be enough to raise a healthy family and one parent can stay home.
John, its not only what they say in private, its what underscores their thinking....and feeling.....and they are scared shitless, to borrow the words of Stephen Stills. They know the house of cards is crumbling and another science journalist has fallen down the rabbit hole. AoA could invite Ms Moyer to an in-depth interview exactly the kind of interview the Times would never give Andy Wakefield, Kennedy, Stone, Blaxil, Dachel, Rossi, Wright, Quackenboss, and all of the AoA writers or commenters. I read a tiny fraction of the 805 comments and one commentor talked about "inconvenient truths". Inconvenient truths about inconvenient [Offit-vaccine] science.
Thank you John for writing this up. If Rosa Silverman's were driving a car--you have provided a list of her moving violations. All that is needed now are her fines for failure to perform the responsibilities of journalist. She is a poor, poor driver. Hopefully this is not too cryptic.
Thank you John for your superb writing and analysis. Thank you and "science is pure" for making me use my brain and keeping me literate. Must re-read Orwell.
Re-post--my bad. Here's the completed post. The HHS stipulation--admission, reminds me of the EPA's admission regarding fluoridation chemicals. The background: There was actually a 2-year congressional investigation into fluoridation in 1999-2001 led by Ken Calvert, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment. Questions were asked of the EPA, FDA, CDC. As many of you already know, fluoride is regulated as a contaminant by the EPA and fluoridation is the deliberate contamination of the drinking water. Long story made short, the EPA was asked a series of questions. Question 2: What chronic toxicity test data are there on sodium flurosilicate? On hydrofluorosilicic acid? Here is the EPA's response to Question 2: " Sodium fluorosilicate and hydrofluorosilicic acid are two of the chemicals used in the fluoridation of water supplies. In 1998, the Office of Water (OW) at EPA initiated the development of a fact sheet to provide information on both of these chemicals for interested citizens. A draft of that fact sheet has been completed and is presently under review before being finalized. In collecting the data for the fact sheet, EPA was not able to identify chronic studies for these chemicals.

Spinning makes the world go around, the world go around...... When buying Congress, Captive Agencies, doesn't work, there is always the 24/7 spin cycle setting on THEIR media machine. Were the Vaxopedia Spin list been pertinent to demonstrate compliance with the law, HHS would have responded with that list to the request. Apparently HHS lawyers looked to one another and realized-- oops.
I imagine in typical fashion, the US would likely decide that if Aquino made it to our shores and requested political asylum, he would be granted such, like other government scoundrels who seek our protection from high crimes and misdemeanors. Can't remember who in the past fit that description, but believe there are examples.
Bill, Reading Age of Autism including the comments, I've learned of the potential toxicity of Vitamin A, learned of the potential harm, scientific misconduct, government-industry collusion with cell towers, smart meters, and 5G; learned about pre-mature chord clamping in newborns; learned about how standards of care put us at risk to medical harm; learned about the overthrow of Salvadore Allende was sparked by the Chilean Medical Association going after Dr. Salvadore Allende calling for fewer vaccinations and the development of natural immunity. I can't even think of all the things that I didn't know if it were not for Age of Autism contributors and the comments from a cadre of extremely well-informed readers. This is all part and parcel of why we find ourselves in the age of autism in all of its many manifestations. We see it and the government/corporatocracy-media is doing its damnedest to make sure others don't. Age of Autism is everything the main stream media isn't any more, honest, transparent with the highest standards of journalistic integrity. We become informed which puts us way ahead of the rest of the herd and for me that is a blessing. Bill, maybe you know this already but it was the Obama administration that gave the media its marching orders to censor the information that Age of Autism provides: “There are groups out there that insist that vaccines are responsible for a variety of problems, despite all scientific evidence to the contrary. We [DHHS] have reached out to media outlets to try to get them not to give the views of these people equal weight in their reporting.” Kathleen Sebelius--Secretary of DHHS, February 2010, Readers Digest We are and will be in the horrors of the age of autism, not because of some right wing conspiracy, but by the media's clear manipulation of the herd to believe black is white, peace is war, and mercury, aluminum injected into children and pregnant women makes them healthy. Don't be scared; make a donation to AOA. We are the resistance to all we know that is misguided if not plainly evil, which threatens are health, our freedoms, our pursuit of happiness.
Magnificent!!!!!!
