From the December 2003 Idaho Observer:
Some epidemics better than others?
If the lives of children and America's future mattered to the public health industry, something would be done about autism
by The Idaho Observer
The manufactured flu hysteria in advance of what may be an inevitable flu pandemic and waves of news coming in about the fraud and deceit behind U.S. public health policies has been overwhelming. The implications are awesome. We have seen the beginning of an avalanche. This is not a good time to choose allopathic medicine or public health as a career. The worst of it has to be the children whose individual lives will be forever limited by the damage done to them by those whom we mistakenly entrusted with our health. We are seeing the future of America and it is bleak. It is going to take a lot of work and a lot of love and patience to save this nation. It is quite obvious that the first thing we must do is remove ourselves and our children from being in harm's way. That is, within the clutches of some needle-bearing or pill-pushing psychopath and restore our collective national health naturally and intelligently. In the meantime, let the numbers below steel your resolve to take responsibility for your own health and the health of those who depend upon you.
According to a research study commissioned by Medicine for Autism Today, the increase in special needs children has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. The findings indicate that the special needs population is growing at three times the rate of the general population. This means that approximately six million children between the ages of five and 19 will be in need of special assistance. Of this increase, Autism is the fastest growing population, growing at over nine hundred percent (900%) since 1992, according to data collected from the U.S. Department of Education. If we view the increase in Autism as we would the increase in any other disease process, it certainly deserves to be called an epidemic. Think about it! If there were a 900% increase in the incidence of mosquito borne malaria or meningitis or influenza, the Centers for Disease Control would label it an epidemic and pour their entire resources into finding a cause. With Autism, however, this has not been the case.
Dr. Michael Goldberg, M.D., president of the Neuro Immune Dysfunction Syndrome Research Institute and a faculty member at the UCLA School of Medicine, said, It is time to focus attention and funding on what can only be called an epidemic. Dr. Goldberg goes on to point out that, If Autism were purely behavioral or genetic, we would not be witnessing this dramatic rise in the number of cases.
His reasoning is perfectly logical, and while some in the scientific and medical community fail to recognize it as valid, more and more researchers are validating his ideas through their own research. As Dr. Goldberg says, It is scientifically impossible to have an epidemic of a developmental or genetic disorder of any type. Clearly something is very wrong here.
Dr. Goldberg is obviously right. It is not likely the public health community will help us solve the riddle of autism since its policies have created it. We will have to depend upon each other for this one, too.
