1 in 50 School Children with Autism
May 5, 2015 — The CDC just released a report <http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhsr/nhsr065.pdf> stating that the prevalence of autism
among school age children ages 6 to 17 years old is now 2%, or one out of every 50 children.
The time period covers 2007 to 2011-2012. Congressional hearings were convened to study
the issue of the alarming rise in autism in late 2012.
Congressman Dan Burton stated that the situation is “worse than an epidemic, it is an
absolute disaster.” Many questions were asked of the CDC at this hearing, which revealed
what many in the autism community already knew, such as the fact that there has never
been a study comparing vaccinated children with unvaccinated children, and
neither has there been a study on the effects of multiple dose vaccines in the
ever-rising vaccine schedule.
You can watch highlights of the hearing here <http://healthimpactnews.com/2012/video-highlights-from-first-congressional-hearing-on-autism-in-10-years/> . The US now leads all countries in the number
of vaccine doses given to children under the age of 6.
So why is there no current research being done by the government to investigate the
possible vaccine-autism link? The official response from the CDC is that they have studied
the issue, and they definitively state that there is no link. They also continue to state that
there is no link between the mercury-based vaccine ingredient thimerosal and autism,
but they removed it from most childhood vaccines sometime around 2001 “just to be safe.”
The annual flu vaccine still contains mercury, however, and is recommended for both
children and pregnant women.
Well, there are several problems to the CDC’s claims that they have investigated this issue.
First, it is public knowledge that one of their main researchers, Dr. Poul Thorsen, was indicted
for fraud for stealing millions of dollars in research grants to study the thimerosal mercury
link to autism. He is still on the run today and at large. He was an author in 36 studies with
the CDC on the issue of mercury in vaccines and autism . . . Full story: healthimpactnews.com <http://healthimpactnews.com/2013/cdc-now-admits-1-in-50-school-children-with-autism-time-to-stop-ignoring-the-vaccine-connection>
