THE AUTISM EPIDEMIC IS REAL, AND EXCESSIVE VACCINATIONS ARE THE CAUSETHE AUTISM EPIDEMIC IS REAL, AND EXCESSIVE VACCINATIONS ARE THE CAUSE
STATEMENT FROM BERNARD RIMLAND, PH.D.
The vaccine manufacturers, the Center for Disease Control, the FDA, and the various medical associations have failed miserably in their duty to protect our children. Rather than acknowledge their role in creating the
immense, catastrophic rise in autism, these organizations have resorted
to denial and obfuscation. They stand to lose their credibility, and
billions of dollars in liability suits will soon reach the courts.
As a full-time professional research scientist for 50 years, and as a
researcher in the field of autism for 45 years, I have been shocked and
chagrined by the medical establishment s ongoing efforts to trivialize
the solid and compelling evidence that faulty vaccination policies are
the root cause of the epidemic. There are many consistent lines of
evidence implicating vaccines, and no even marginally plausible
” As the number of childhood vaccines has increased 700%, from 3 in the
70s to 22 in 2000, the prevalence of autism has also showed a parallel
increase of 700%..
” Late onset autism, (starting in the 2nd year), was almost unheard of
in the 50s, 60s, and 70s; today such cases outnumber early onset
cases 5 to 1, the increase paralleling the increase in required vaccines.
” Thousands of parents report and demonstrate with home videos — that
their children were normal and responsive until suffering an adverse
vaccine reaction. (The Autism Research Institute has been tracking such
autism-related vaccination reactions since 1967.)
” Mercury, one of the most toxic substances known, is used as a
preservative in many vaccines. Some infants have had 125 times the
maximum allowable limit of mercury injected directly into their
bloodstreams, in one day, in vaccines. (People vary enormously in their
sensitivity to mercury, because certain genes predispose to mercury
sensitivity. The highly-touted New England Journal of Medicine Danish
study failed to mention the very convenient fact that none of the Danish
children had prior exposure to mercury, since Denmark, unlike the U.S.
had, banned mercury from childhood vaccines in 1992, the year before the
birth year of the children in the study.)
” There are numerous scientific studies showing large differences in
clinical laboratory measures of blood, urine and biopsies which compare
autistic children with normal controls. Such findings, pointing directly
to vaccines as the cause of the group differences, are conveniently
overlooked by those attempting to conceal the strong connection between
the autism epidemic and excessive use of unsafe vaccines.
The truth must and will emerge. It is long overdue.
