The hubris of these people... and in broad daylight. The truth will out in time. Of course,'Now' was a good time with Vaxxed at Tribeca. Let me say, no one has more regard for Andrew Wakefield than I do - however, the Thompson Tapes were mishandled. The enlightened Autism community here is huge and disproportionately affluent. Why has no one built the Media Machine? A machine to fund Wakefield's appeal, sell the movie(s) and make "the case" as full counterweight to this Listserv BS. Like Deer, Offit and Mnookin, they're not saavy. They're just the only ones in the (Big) arena. I've been in communications for 40 years, I've never witnessed the Media become so Utterly Unhinged in mauling Andy Wakefield in Jan. 2011... ever, with anything. So then clearly, August 2014 being a while ago, the Thompson revelation needed a far bolder strategy. And with Vaxxed, why attach Andrew Wakefield's name as Director? Even if directed every second of it, why? A powerful 'other' party should have been in place to stickhandle around the Media obstacle course. Will Tribeca's cowardly complicity backfire for these deceitful dunderheads.? Will the censorship propel the film even higher? Maybe. Let's hope so.

Doubt this will appear on Forbes Comment page... _________________________________________________ Dear Peter Lipson, Just One Thing. You saw with your own eyes during the H1N1 pandemic in 2009. You watched as kids came down with a new strain of flu. A flu they (you in the media) said was going to kill us all! Did you know (and do you really care?) that those kids - Your Camp Kids - who got the regular flu shot that year were TWICE as likely to come down with H1N1? TWICE as likely to die as those who did not vaccinate. Do you have any idea what the implications of that are? Stop and think, just for a second. Don't regurgitate in your mind what you 'know to be true'. Just research ONE Fact would you please? Pretend you are a researcher, pretend your life depends on it. Just ONE Time!
Hi Anne, I realize it's not new but on this.... "#3 No MMR-autism link in large study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated kids...". has there been a more detailed deconstruction or rebuttal of this study on a previous occasion here on AoA? Thanks
Teresa, Great summary/insight. I cheered the microbiome as debunking the great gene chase which has come up empty again and again. And with 80+% of the immune system in the gut, it really is the primary director of dis-ease. Will the virome and proteome cause the same explosion of new insights? Regardless, the gene is dead as the big idiopathic answer. ----------- Dr.Kostoff, I enjoyed your recent article and indeed many environmental factors get to to play their part. I haven't finished Pervasive Causes of Disease as yet but I think EMF is the primary common denominator for disease. (BTW, your links are broken, this one works EMF opens membranes like the blood brain barrier and disrupts ion channels on cell membranes (in every cell in the body including the trillions of bacterial cell walls) as well as generating heat shock proteins/inflammation among it's many mechanisms. You say it's "a fruitless effort" to look for "THE cause"? The happy-go-lucky 'everything causes cancer' camp might just as well agree or others may all say 'it's God's will'. For me? There is a cause. Find it. Ya know, unlike the thriving idiopathic doctors. When we look we find things like EMF opening a BBB so that mercury/aluminum & co. go waltzing in to wreak havoc. You're right, it's not simple or easy are there are far more suspects that we imagined. But all "Causes" are not equally culpable. Nor are all collisions. A human colliding with a butterfly compared to a human colliding with a freight train will surely have a different result.
Paul Offit said a baby's immune system could handle 10,000 vaccines. He later upped the ante by saying "it was probably closer to 100,000". Adjusted for Offit's weight that then is about 1.2 million vaccines @ .82 each (we'll get them in China) and so $ 984,000. The Offit Challenge, we've got the website waiting and domain OffitChallenge.Com Any hearty souls care to help kickstart a Kickstarter campaign?
Kim, a valid analogy to be sure. This blend of fear and ignorance is what moves the masses. Your 'friend' there just doesn't care to dig into the politics of autism. The Syrian refugees coming to America will not be those pictured on TV swimming ashore. Rather, it will be those who have been living in a tent for 2-4 years having run for their lives and long-been vetted security-wise by the UN. And absolutely, as has been said here they will get ALL their vaccines in short order ... even after having already received most of the same ones in the refugee camp. Just like the Somali immigrants whose level of autism at 1 in 39 (see also, rampant diabetes).
I think it's understandable for a dad, Jon E. Mica, to call his book “The Autistic Holocaust". However, we can't equate vaccine's devastation to six million deaths (at least, today).The Holocaust stands alone. It's true countless families have been consumed by this malicious vaccine calamity driven by PharmaGov. This too stands alone. But I hope we don't adopt the Holocaust terminology, as communication is our biggest challenge. And it seems the U.S. government will never relent based on mere fact or truth. There's too much money at stake. It'll take the majority of Americans, twisting their arm. So "selling" the America people is the avenue and Holocaust analogies are ill-advised. (The closer we get.. the farther it gets, see CA) For all of 'society' to "handle the truth" will take time. The collective "we" will look back in 20 (God-forbid, 50-100) years and tally the cost in human lives. And the way they're adding vaccines 'the record' is sure to fall. Regardless, I'm with Bob Krakow, we need new words. The PEOPLE wreaking this health and social havoc are the so-called 'good guys' "saving the babies", the same narrative of the so-called 'bad guys". Lots of truth yet to sell. In the meantime, we must slow down the train.
The scientific overlap is considerable with vaccines and GMOs. Anyone who 'gets' the toxicity of vaccines and not GMOs has not dedicated the same time to researching it (and vise versa). Likewise, there's another constituency considered as 'crazy' as (us) so-called anti-vaxxers and that's the hundreds of thousands of people globally fighting toxic energy. Electromagnetic fields too are part of the autism mix. Again, it's there for anyone in the scientific literature. But Messaging is all in 2015. Back in 1992 in Silicon Valley, I envisioned the Internet as the great leveler, power to the people, access to truth - a way to directly tell our leaders where we wanted to go. Trouble is, we have no leaders and Corporations still manage an extraordinary sway over the Message. We need to be Creative & Persist.
"The expectant mother suffers from depression and is debating whether to get off her meds until the baby is born. (I vote yes, if humanly possible). This mom also has ADHD. The question was posed, did I think a parent with ADHD and depression is more likely to have a child with autism. No, I said, I don't think parents have anything to do with their children having autism." Unless of course they are exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMF) which is linked to depression, ADHD, seizures and may also open the placental barrier and blood brain barrier of the fetus as well to allow toxins in.
Christopher Caldwell is there to parrot Slate's Phil Plait. Slate you recall did the 180 on FRK Jr' 'Deadly Immunity' article.. where Rolling Stone stood by him. Ana Marie Cox wrote for Daily Beast "Stop Paying Attention to Anti-Vaxxers Already!".. right. Liz Mair and Eddie Huang (wrote) "Fresh Off the Boat" dunno.... But one thing for sure, 'there will be blood'.
And the WAY to enhance surveillance and exert control under the guise of Homeland Security? Electromagnetic fields from toxic towers (an as-yet unindicted co-promoter in autism). If there was a competition for mind-boggling corruption at the expense of our health, one must add this one to the list - an industry touted by Cisco as becoming $ 19 TRILLION dollars annually within 10 years. America, along with it's Constitution, has irreparably blown a gasket.
JB, Let's get started. Here and now. In addition to buying books that describe this epic tragedy from 360 degrees...gets the funds DO The Research. Period. Now.
Here's the thing, Dr. Yazbak is for Choice. The battle for parents who've had their life overturned by vaccine-damage is a separate fight. I'd wholeheartedly agree, no vaccine withstands rigorous scientific scrutiny i.e. net benefit. But that's my Opinion based considerably searching begun on AoA. Dr. Yazbak's position - above all - is CHOICE. Even this reasonable middle ground is unavailable in this polarizing media environment. To the degree Dr. Yazbak succeeds in establishing a middle road is the degree to which any other advances can be made. Dr. Yazbak is considered a fully-crazed anti-vaxxer in Offit's head quarters merely for advocating Choice. He suffers the slings and arrows. Pharma's CDC does NOT want him to succeed, in any way, and at ANY cost! Otherwise, you end up with "rational discussions" and that's a very scary road to reduced billions in profit. THAT is why it's absolutely critical we help Dr. Yazbak pave the middle ground.
Shocking and ignorant hysteria... 'Hysteria' not in a misogynistic 'mercurial' manner but collective panic. You'd think Jews would stop and think. You'd think Gays would stop and think. You'd think. @theputingames · ANTI-Vaxxers? Fine 'Em, Jail 'Em, STONE 'EM!! Just like GAYS in '82, Then Vaxxers!! China w 100% MMR Uptake +107,000 cases #1EducateVAXXERS!
Dan, Thanks to AoA (it's followers) and research it's inspired, I don't yet see a safe vaccine personally. However, in the bigger battle for more research and safer schedules 'No Vaccines!' is an untenable strategy. When there's so much information to parse/impart, starting the discussion with 'You're Killing People!' makes for no discussion at all. And still, were I travelling to Africa or other infected area - I'd look again. Beth & Birgit, On that "Tentanus vaccines works.." idea? Admittedly, that's one I held onto. Doubtless attributable to my sister stepping in a rusty nail when I was a kid and the impact of the uproar. Dr. Susan Humphries takes tetanus apart in excruciating detail (for me). See Youtube "Dr. Humphries on tetanus, immunity and epigenetics". And then (again, for me) a bombshell, she shows research on immune changes after a tetanus vaccine. What happens at a genetic level (if you've been following epigenetics, 'gene activation'). I'll let her explain it, she does it so well. Oh yeah, and the study in India ... Vitamin C versus tetanus vaccination is incredible.

Eindeker, Or, maybe go for 0% death rate from tetanus with Vitamin C as the Bangladeshi study seems to suggest. The fact it may be totally resolved with a little Vitamin C? Now, that is scary.
Excellent. Another extraordinary correlation is electricity. Check geographical outbreaks against the introduction of telegraphs (1848-53), electric cars (1867) and the electric power grid(1880s), street cars (1888-93). Massive electric power increase after 1945. Roosevelt contracted the virus at Bear Mountain New York, they say. This being a high point, radio/communications/radar towers and power lines there. Another critical variable in polio and autism?

Nancy said: I know this will not be popular, but I'd like to see more research in the areas of EMF and autism. Martha Herbert recently did a talk on this topic and it seems to have some promise. Dr. Hebert has over 500 studies which paint the picture. "Promise"? Yes Nancy. It's what's causing immune dysfunction, mito dysfunction and the long list. The Cause. This ALLOWs Mercury & Co. to do their thing. But it's not "popular" as you say, I tried... again and again. AoA, Andy, SafeMinds one wants to know. Too bad.
Nice Pointed Summary, Jim Thompson. On same - the Recent CDC Articles on ASD Page. "These CDC scientific articles are listed in order of date published, from 2007 to present". Thorson is listed in 6 of 47 papers or about 13% of them
Dear Abdulkadir Khalif, Clear, bold and painfully heartfelt. You message was entirely unlike the unsubstantiatable PR fluff offered up by Dr. Abdirahman D Mohamed, the Somali doctor - as you well-pointed out. Dr. Mohamed may yet become a grand PR star for Offit's Pharma forces of obfuscation. You may want to interview him before that happens. Of course, like so many autism tourists, Dr. Abdirahman D Mohamed can best be understood with a snippet from his bio - " He returned to Minneapolis in July 2008 from a five-year project in Zambia, first as the Senior Technical Advisor for USAID, then as the Country Director for MACEPA, a project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The endorsement "Funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation " will be our greatest obstacle to truth and justice in future. Thanks. And Keep fighting.
