Last week I stirred up a little controversy with the post about Ignatius, which tells how this little boy received at least 10 vaccines in one sitting prior to his family noticing significant behavioral changes in him. Now I have never been anti-vaccine, however, I do think the vaccine schedule is too aggressive , the administration of them is too capricious, and that there are some vaccines we could do without. Regardless of whatever we believe, there is an epidemic occurring. Using information obtained from the CDC’s website, the graph shown here demonstrates an increase of 70% in just 6 years!
Last Saturday I received an email from the Autism Action Network (www.autismactionnetwork.org), informing me of a Congressional hearing on the federal response to autism. This hearing took place on 11/28, and was the 1st in 10 years on the federal response to autism. Dr. Brian Hooker, who has an autistic son, provided written testimony to this hearing. It is my opinion that his testimony is shattering to those who continue to espouse there is no link between vaccines and autism. This man holds a doctorate in biochemical engineering, and submitted over 100 Freedom of Information requests to the CDC (request regarding his research into the safety of vaccines), most of which were denied. What is the CDC trying to hide? You can watch the video of this hearing at the link below. By the way, Dr. Hooker determined his son, at 2 months of age, was exposed to a level of mercury that exceeded by 134 times the FDA’s recommended exposure limit. All thanks to the vaccines he received.
One action resulting from the aforementioned hearing was an invite for people to provide their relevant stories and have them entered into the official record. I am please to say my colleague has entered the story of her nephew, Ignatius, into this record.
