Dan Olmsted on 'the story of a lifetime'- environmentally induced autism

Dan has written 113 articles on this issue and even though this will be his last for UPI, he will not be stopping writing about Autism and its causes.

His concerns were raised early on when he found that there had been NO STUDIES of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children. WHY???

MMR, Mercury and the Mystery surrounding my book

Tomorrow at the General Medical Council will start the case against Dr Andrew Wakefield and two other Doctors who raised concerns about children they assessed in the nineties, very worried that the problems they found were linked to adverse reactions to the MMR vaccine.

As there has been an almighty reaction by the Pharmaceutical lobby there has been NO public debate on exactly what has been going on.

In my book, Reweaving the Autistic Tapestry, having seen too many children with what I called 'tapestry impairments' many of which developed following the DTP and in fewer cases, the MMR, I suggested there may be a 'tapestry' causal effect with vaccines as one thread.

I mentioned Thimerosal and included some lawyers details here and in the US.

The launch of the book was at a CHADD conference in Anaheim California in October 2001. Eli Lilly were on the next stand and bought a copy of the book.

On my return to the UK there was no contact from the publisher.

Within weeks of my book being published parents were being told by Amazon that it was a 'rare book' and that it would take a year to get and would cost $79 plus post and packing!!!

There were none in the shops.

There were none in the warehouses of the retailers.

There were none in the Distributors.

The UK National Autistic Society carry all the books on Autism - except mine.

Probably nothing to do with my concerns about the vaccine, a small part of the book incidentally, or about my concern about the use of the label Munchausen Syndrome by proxy when children were genuinely ill - many had suffered reactions to vaccines. The fact that during the time my Editor was working on the book he was invited to change jobs and work on the MSBP/Factitious Illness Guidlelines at the RCPCH - Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, I am sure was total coincidence.

Guess I'm just paranoid when it comes to the things done by the powerful vaccine lobby and the need to protect the vaccine programme more than the public...

Prior to the documentary My Family and Autism being aired on the BBC, over a year after the trip to Anaheim, in which I am seen undertaking an assessment, I was able to at least get the book made more accessible.

If just one person is allowed to speak about their concerns without being leapt on from a great height, I might have confidence that the vaccine programme is safe - but I think they have gone too far and protested too much.

We all now want to know WHY???

'Chemical exposure' linked to autism - MERCURY IN VACCINES???

At last it seems to be dawning on the very slow UK autism specialists and the media - myself excluded, as I have been saying this for years - that there is a much higher rate of autism than ever before - 1 in 58 now, yet 1 in 10,000 not so long ago. That represents AN EPIDEMIC of a totally debilitating disorder often accompanied by serious immune system impairments and painful bowel conditions. Asthma and ADHD are often part of what I have termed the 'tapestry' of disorders on the rise in our so called civilised Western world.

You cannot have genetic epidemics, so this is something else - and it is too rapid and large an increase to just be better diagnosis, especially in a country where politicians have tried to prevent diagnoses of autism by various means.

Simon Baron-C0hen who has inherited the genetic condition of sitting on the fence until the dust dies down - unlike his cousin Sasha - nevertheless is willing to whisper that maaayyybbbeee.... chemical exposure through pollutants could have something to do with this massive increase.

At last we have at least ONE answer which fits with concerns about certain vaccines and their effect on the developing system. Deadly toxic MERCURY, astonishingly, has been used in vaccines since 1930.

It forms 49.6% of the preservative THIMEROSAL.

This preservative was used by Eli Lilly in 1928 after it was found that children were dying after using multi-dose vials of vaccine. So bacteria was being spread from one to the other. The multi-dose vials were used to SAVE MONEY and MAKE MORE PROFITS FOR THE SHAREHOLDERS.

Ok. So clearly something had to be done. The choice:

1. Give single vaccines
2. Give multi-dose vaccines but use a preservative to kill off the bacteria.

Number 1 would have cost more, so Number 2 was chosen. It still is chosen, for flu vaccines and the Third World, whose millions don't have a clue what's happening, just as we didn't.

The trial of the vaccines containing this preservative was used on 22 dying meningitis patients.

Not surprisingly, it was not possible to fully test whether the product was dangerous, because the subjects were dying anyway. This confounding factor would have made it impossible to establish whether they died earlier than they should because of the vaccine, or because of the meningitis.

Political protection of Eli Lilly and indeed the vaccine industry as a whole in the West has ensured that this little story has never properly been told to the public, nor has Thimerosal in vaccines ever been tested properly.

But the concerns about the toxicity of this product have never subsided - albeit away from the public eye and usually quickly dismissed or mocked by Big Pharma shills if anything did sneak out.

If Baron-Cohen is right and chemical exposure can cause damage to people - and this is not rocket science - and this damage could lead to neurodevelopmental disorders which could include autism - then we are home and dry. MERCURY is the second most deadliest toxic metal on this earth - WHY WAS IT EVER PUT IN VACCINES?

Autism was first described a few years after Mercury was used in vaccines, when suddenly Kanner and Asperger, working across the world from each other in Austria and the US, began to see the same thing in the late 1930's.

The numbers remained much the same over the decades and autism was regarded as a rare disorder. Our focus was on diagnosis, education and forms of treatment. The National Autistic Society, set up by concerned parents in the 1960's, had its priorities right then. But, the message was always - "We don't know what causes this condition". Or " It's wholly genetic, don't have any more children". Tapestry thinking was a million miles away.

When my own interests in autism began in the 1970's, it was extremely rare. When you mentioned an autistic child to people they thought you were saying 'artistic' and no-one knew anything about it. When you say it now, everyone knows someone who has an autistic child.

This massive increase, now clear in these very late reports, shifted from a condition which came into professional consciousness in the 30's after the Mercury vaccine programme began in earnest across the West, and rapidly rose after the 1980's.

It is not a co-incidence that in the 1980's there was an accelerated Thimerosal containing DTP (Diptheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (Whooping Cough) ) programme which meant that babies were getting much more Mercury than they had previously been getting.

The shots were given to much younger infants, with obviously weaker immune systems, and the time between each vaccine was shortened.

US children were also given a shot on the first day of birth and more shots within the first few months of life, so they have seen an even more rapid rise in autism.

So much spin and big money given to those that weave it has blocked what is alarmingly obvious:



What has it done to us all?

Mercury side effects - courtesy of Tami in Seattle

"All drugs have side effects" Glaxo Smith Kline quote

As we know, the political spin machine has woven a story that there is no such thing as an adverse reaction or a side effect to a drug or vaccine, in order to slam the door shut of children damaged in such an iatrogenic way being recognised and compensated for it.

Knowing how that spin has resulted in smear campaigns and whitewashed reports masquerading as science and taken to similarly compromised Journals and Courts - all paid for by the pharmaceutical industry - makes this story all the more interesting.
