At the Clinic for Special Children in Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, Dr. Kevin Strauss and Dr. Frank Noonan said that they see a number of Amish children with "syndromic" autism, which is associated with chromosomal abnormalities, fragile X syndrome, short stature, unusual facial features, and mental retardation. They see no children with "idiopathic" autism, who have a normal appearance and often normal or close to normal intelligence, but with the language, social, and behavioral deficits we associate with autism. Dr. Heng Wang of the Clinic for Special Needs Children in Ohio concurs in this, and says he has only seen a rate of autism among the unvaccinated Amish of one in 15,000. The vanishingly few classically autistic Amish have invariably received at least one vaccination, or live near a mercury-producing, coal-burning electrical plant.
I didn't say autism rates were increasing among the unvaccinated Amish, I said the reverse, that there was no autism among the unvaccinated Amish. Rates are increasing among the vaccinated Amish. There's one Amish boy who is autistic, probably because he lives near the fumes of a mercury-producing electrical plant. There are some Amish children who have an autism-like syndrome that is genetic in origin, but it's not the classical autism we think of when we say someone has autism. These children are unusually short, with distinctive facial features. There are no unvaccinated Amish (unexposed to mercury) who have Kanner's autism.
I am a vaccine refuser, and am heartened to read how our numbers are increasing. My baby was given the hep-B vaccine in the hospital when she was born, without asking my permission (I had already told her pediatrician I didn't want her to get it). She reacted at four days old with four days and nights of high-pitched, inconsolable screaming (vaccine-induced encephalitis) and was later diagnosed with autism. This was stupid and needless. A congressional sub-committee in May 1999 had investigated the safety of this vaccine, and found it to be so dangerous that it recommended a moratorium be placed on its use. So why was it blithely given to my baby a year later, in May 2000, without even asking my permission? I had tested negative for hep-B, it is a disease close to nonexistent among children, and the vaccine protection wears off before the child is old enough to have sex or do illegal drugs, the major modes of transmission. My baby was permanently damaged only to yield profits for Big Pharma.
I had measles as a child, like all children did in the '60s, it was not considered a dangerous disease, and now that we know that vitamin A and lack of fever reducers reduce still more the risk of rare complications, many of us would rather take our chances with the natural disease rather than risk the many dangers of the MMR. (Dr. Wakefield was vindicated in Nature magazine in November, and even Brian Deer now says he doesn't believe Wakefield committed fraud. He was railroaded by Big Pharma, terrified that if parents knew the truth about the MMR causing autism and bowel disease, that profits would fall precipitously.)
The DTaP vaccine is not very effective, 30-70%, and most of the people who get whooping cough have been completely and appropriately vaccinated. The vaccine is still very dangerous, causing most of the cases of asthma in the U.S., also autism and SIDS. The disease used to be very dangerous, but, like measles, evolved to being a not very serious one for most people. Infants must be quarantined anyway: the DTaP at two months old does nothing to protect them from pertussis, but doubles their rate of asthma. To protect them from the many carriers of pertussis, both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, they should be kept away from possible disease vectors until they are four months old and their airways have developed enough to handle coughing the mucus out of their lungs. Pertudoron 1 and 2 help, but not antibiotics. Holding the infant up on your shoulder all night used to be standard practice, and will probably become so again now that the disease is becoming so much more common.
Mumps and chickenpox are nearly always mild diseases, conferring permanent immunity and a stronger, better-educated immune system.
Vaccines are meant to produce inflammation and subsequent antibodies. Unfortunately, many people react more than they were supposed to. My baby and millions of others reacted with brain inflammation, encephalitis, which then results in autism, ADHD, dyslexia, learning disorders, and seizure disorders. Many people's immune systems are skewed by vaccines from a normal Th1 response to an abnormal, autoimmune Th2 response, resulting in asthma, allergies, bowel disease, and diabetes, all of which are many times more common in vaccinated people than in unvaccinated.
Parents must inform themselves by reading books by Randall Neustaedter, Aviva Jill Romm, Wendy Lydall, Cynthia Cournoyer, Jamie Murphy, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, and Dr. Mayer Eisenstein before allowing their child to get any vaccine. There is no safe vaccine. There are thousands of scientific studies indicting vaccines as causing many kinds of permanent damage, and the authors I have mentioned cite hundreds of them in their excellent, well-documented books.
Autism was new in the 1930s, after the first pertussis vaccines were developed a few years before. Dr. Leo Kanner collaborated with his colleagues at Johns Hopkins on a compendium of every neurological disease known to man in the mid-'30s: nothing like autism was described. He published his landmark study on the first cases of autism in 1943, saying it had never before been seen or described. The rate of autism (from the pertussis vaccine) was about one in ten thousand until the MMR came out in the late '80s, starting the upward spiral of autism. The hep-B at birth started the deluge of cases of autism in the 1990s, described by school nurse Patti White in her testimony before Congress. It's now one in eighty-eight in Missouri, one in forty-eight boys.
Mercury is out of vaccines except for most flu vaccines, which still have a lot and are now recommended for everyone from six months of age on up (which is new). But aluminum is still in most of the vaccines, as well as formaldehyde, diploid (human fetus) cells, animal blood, and dozens of other highly antigenic substances. The aluminum is responsible for the twenty-fold increase in Alzheimer's since the yearly flu vaccines started about 1980. The flu vaccine has paralyzed hundreds, some permanently, and has killed many. There's not a single case of autism among the 35,000 unvaccinated patients of Dr. Mayer Eisenstein over forty years of practice, nor is there any among the unvaccinated Amish.
In short, there are a LOT of excellent reasons that parents are refusing vaccines for their children in record numbers. Unvaccinated children are healthier, with intact immune systems. The vaccine-preventable diseases are either mild in children (measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis, hepatitis A, chicken pox) or very rare (encephalitis and hepatitis). We refusers would MUCH rather take our chances with the diseases and treat them, when they occur, with herbal and homeopathic remedies. Nearly half of all children in the U.S. now suffer from an autoimmune disease, that were rare to non-existent before vaccines. We are fighting to preserve the health of our children, even though it means swimming against the ill-informed general opinion.
