VAXXED CHALLENGE

v2

WE NEED TO CHALLENGE…

1.  that Congress subpoena Dr. William Thompson and investigate the CDC fraud.

2. that Congress repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act and hold manufacturers liable for injury caused by their vaccines.

3. that single measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines be made available immediately.

4. that all vaccines be classified as pharmaceutical drugs and tested accordingly.

VAXXED- FROM COVER-UP TO CATASTROPHE

v

“OH MY GOD. I CANNOT BELIEVE WE DID WHAT WE DID. BUT WE DID.”

– DR. WILLIAM THOMPSON, CDC SENIOR SCIENTIST & WHISTLEBLOWER

“In 2013, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism.

The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over several months, Dr. Hooker records the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provides the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC.

Dr. Hooker enlists the help of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely accused of starting the anti-vax movement when he first reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine may cause autism. In his ongoing effort to advocate for children’s health, Wakefield directs this documentary examining the evidence behind an appalling cover-up committed by the government agency charged with protecting the health of American citizens.

Interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children reveal an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.”

VAXXED –FROM COVER-UP TO CATASTROPHE

 

This film is a documentary  about a cover-up. Please do not refuse to see the film because-

  1. You heard it is an “anti-vaccine”film.
  2. You read a negative review from a reviewer who has not even seen the film. 
  3. The media is slamming the film and the directors.

Please see the movie and form your own opinion. If you still disagree with what the movie has to say–that is your prerogative. I applaud you for being open minded enough to see it.

IMPROVE CONVERSATIONS WITH NEW SOCIAL LANGUAGE THERAPY APP

I downloaded a new app for Brody this weekend. It is called I Can Have Conversations With You! It intrigued me because it was designed to help children with autism develop naturally flowing conversations. Brody still struggles in this department, so I thought this app would be extremely beneficial.

The app was created by  Karen Kabaki-Sisto, an ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist and applied behavior analysis instructor. She has spent the last 20 years working with children with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and social (pragmatic) communication disorder.

I Can Have Conversations With You! is recommended for learners ages 6 and up, talk in sentences, read and are comfortable using the iPad.

For a video tour of the app click here.

We have only had the app for a few days, but Brody likes it and has used it on his own without me badgering him to do it.

16 years later

We thought this was a great post about reflecting on autism after living it for 16 years. The author gives an honest look at what it’s really like to deal with autism.

Moving Autism Forward by Team TACA

20140503-142307.jpg

By Holly Bortfeld

My son Max was diagnosed with autism 16 years ago today, May 4, 1998. I have been mulling around in my head for a few weeks how I wanted to mark this anniversary of autism entering our lives and had drafted a blog but I didn’t like it. I kept poking at it and it didn’t get better. Just sadder. More bitter.

I was focusing on “lessons learned” in the autism community and frankly, it was just depressing. Little has changed for the positive, many things have gotten worse. Incidence has risen, funding has gone down, there is still a media blackout of the reality of “real autism”, our government hasn’t done anything, waiting lists are longer, services are cut everywhere, and our kids are still neglected, abused, bullied, sick, wandering and dying. Parents are still broke, exhausted, marginalized, heartsick.

I thought I’d take a break to…

TYLENOL IS LINKED TO MORE THAN ADHD… WHAT THE MEDIA ISN’T TELLING YOU!

tylenol-acetaminophen-dangers

We have been talking about this topic since January of 2012 (click here for article). However, we were excited to see that today, 2 years later, the story has reached the mainstream media.

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) concluded from their study of 64,322 live-born children and mothers enrolled in the Danish National Birth Cohort during 1996-2002 that, “Maternal acetaminophen use during pregnancy is associated with a higher risk for Hyperkinetic Disorders (HKDs) and ADHD-like behaviors in children.”

This is not the first study to replicate the findings reported on by Dr. William Shaw two years ago. Dr. Shaw, in his recent newsletter, refers to a study reported on in the International Journal of Epidemiology between 1999 and 2008 on 48,631 children. They found that:

  • Exposure to acetaminophen for more than 28 days during fetal life increases the risk of adverse psychomotor and behavioral outcomes by almost 70%.
  • Exposure to acetaminophen doubles the risk of language problems in 3-year-old children.
  • In contrast they found no association between ibuprofen on the same neurodevelopmental outcomes, which suggests a specific effect of acetaminophen rather than a general effect of pain medicines.
  • Even short-term exposure (1-27 days) during pregnancy was associated with poor gross motor development.

Also in his recent newsletter, Dr. Shaw calls for a warning label be placed on all acetaminophen products intended for pregnant women and young children. His rationale for this is that acetaminophen has not just been linked to ADHD. It has been associated with:

  • increased rates of cancer
  • plausible causation of autism
  • plausible causation of brain damage (in vitro evidence associated with acetaminophen metabolites)
  • increased risks of testicular damage
  • asthma
  • allergy
  • language problems
  • adverse psychomotor and neurodevelopmental outcomes when used in pregnancy
