Two Things We Can Do to Reduce Autism Risk

Autism spectrum disorders now occur in about one of every 100 children born. It’s a dreadful condition, and I have become convinced, a preventable one. I think there are specific steps we can take to reduce the incidence of autism back down to where it was in the 1960s- so rare that no one even knew what it was. This is probably the most important column I have ever written for you. Ever parent of a newborn child should know what I have written here.

First of all, there are two vaccines mandated for infants in the U.S. which are made using cells derived from the tissue of aborted fetuses. They use cultures from aborted babies to “grow” the weakened viruses that they put in the vaccine. That genetic material then winds up in the babies when they get vaccinated. According to Dr. Theresa Deisher of, some genetic material from the aborted fetal tissue is picked up by the viruses during replication. It is already known that such “improperly integrated therapeutic DNA” can cause cancer in children. There is now evidence to suggest that it contributes to autism as well.

For the first time ever, the specially set up “vaccine courts” have ruled that the MMR vaccine “resulted in” the autism of a young girl named Hannah Poling. “Vaccine Courts” are special courts set up in the 1980s separate from our regular judicial system that were established for the specific purpose of limiting the liability of vaccine makers. If any of this sounds unbelievable to you, I invite you to Google it on the internet for yourself. The facts are out there, but there is no entity with a financial interest in providing you with those facts.

In the Polling case the courts ruled that Hannah had an underlying genetic disorder which when combined with the vaccines resulted in the autism. While in theory this would limit the risk of the vaccines, in practice there is simply no easy way to know whether or not your child has a genetic predisposition to autism which is triggered by vaccines whose viruses were derived from aborted fetal tissue. The two vaccines commonly administered to young children in the United States which contain products derived from aborted fetal tissue are the MMR and the Chicken Pox vaccines.

A graph I saw taken from data from the California department of health showed autism at a low and nearly level rate for years. After the first MMR II dose was put into the vaccine list, the rate went up some. When the second dose was added years later, the rate climbed again. Then when the Chicken Pox vaccine was added, it really took off. Correlation does not necessarily mean causation, but it can indicate causation.

Many people thought that a compound that contains mercury that was once used as a preservative in some vaccines was causing autism. That has been debunked, but not the fetal-tissue vaccine link. The two studies that are cited as evidence that the MMR does not contribute to autism (from Yokohama and Sweden) are flawed.

The other factor appears to be vitamin D issues. Pregnant women are told to stay out of the sun, but sunshine is the primary source of vitamin D, which is necessary for a fetus to develop a healthy nervous system. I advise pregnant women to get plenty of vitamin D, and don’t give babies the MMR II or Chicken Pox vaccines until they offer versions which don’t contain genetic material from aborted fetuses. Arkansas law allows for religious exemptions from vaccinations for school purposes.

Title should be closer to "Two things women can do to reduce autism risk in their children."

The women aren't at risk for autism, and only one of the measures you describe can be done while the woman is pregnant.

Thanks for the correction. I hope I have made it more clear.

Some interesting points made here. For more information on what contributes to autism, go to Epidemic Answers Epidemic Answers is sponsored by Parents Ending America's Childhood Epidemic, a 501c3 non-profit organization.
