    There are cases of young women who manipulate others and then play the victim.

    How young does this manipulate young women have to be before it becomes the 50 year old mans fault? 14?, 13?, 12?, 11?

    A baby boy was born who, in my limited judgment as a layman, had a similar condition in that he was born with only a small portion of his brain.
    *********************************************

    I remember that story. The media kept saying he was born with only 2% of a brain, but that was not really true. He had 2% of his brain function, but he was only missing the back quarter of his brain due to spina bifida.

    It really is a big difference to be missing all of your brain.

    My dog did the same thing when I dropped him off at the vet. The girl took him in the back and I left. I opened my car to leave and he pushed by me and jumped in my car.
    The girl came running out and said that dog can open doors. I forgot to tell them that because I thought they would keep him in a cage.
    We always had to keep the doors locked, or he would just come and go at will.
    He is gone now, but he was the smartest and naughtiest dog I ever had.

    Physicians are not scientists, unless they have taken a few years of extra training in research—which these quacks clearly have not. Most physicians know squat about research.

    Maybe you should let Dr Dolittle know that. He thinks he is a scientist too.

    Hopefully others who may read the thread will start putting the pieces together as we did. To them I address this (hopefully!) final comment on this thread: Ignore their parting shots and just start reading holistic, natural health news by so many physicians.

    That’s really the only reason I engage in these conversations. I know we’ll ever get through to them, but we might open the eyes of someone else.

    A salt-water placebo is probably the most inappropriate control for a vaccine trial.
    ******************************************

    Well, the physician group that studied this disagree. Oh, in case you missed it. They are scientists.

    BTW, Guardasil was also fast tracked by the FDA.

    I can also list a ton of doctors and scientists that have serious issues with vaccine safety, but it’s not worth my time. You are a scientist, so I’m sure you a capable of looking it up if you are interested.
    Although, you seem to be more interested in writing these long synopsis to show everyone what brilliant scientist you are.

    However, it’s really just the same spoon fed things I have read a thousand times from the FDA, CDC, and Big Pharma.

    Sometimes it is that you started looking for the signal. I have seen kids labeled as “autistic” who were more than likely introverts.
    ***********************************************

    That may have been true at one time, but the numbers keep going up every year. At this point you would expect to see at least a plateau.
    I know everyone has there own opinion what is causing it. They can quote different studies to support their conclusions, but there is one thing that they can’t explain away.
    It’s the tens of thousands of parents that say there child was developing normal until they received a certain vaccine. Usually the MMR shot.

    I’m sorry, but parents, especially new parents are very aware of every milestone and whether their child is on track.

    Most of their stories are pretty much the same.

    Many of these children started high pitch screaming, had high fevers, seizures, lost speech, lost balance, lost eye contact, and started the classic head bang.
    The doctors will fully admit these can be an adverse reaction to the vaccine.

    However, they will also stand there and tell them to their face that it caused no permanent damage, and they just didn’t notice before that their child had autism.

    Or better yet, this is age that autism shows up, and it’s just a coincidence that that it happened at the same time as the shot.

    That is an outright lie propagated by the anti-vaxx hoaxers.

    ***********************************************************
    Not true, vaccines are not required to go through long term safety studies with real salt water-based placebos.
    Most vaccine studies use another vaccine as the control placebo, or use the background substance of the vaccine.

    This just came up again recently regarding a Gardasil safety study.

    “The physician group also pointed out that the “placebo” used in Merck’s pre-licensure Gardasil safety trials contained two of the vaccine’s ingredients, including aluminum, instead of being a true saline solution”

    So, you have never had an immunology course in your life yet you stand in judgement of the science. Wow. Unbelievable.

    *********************************************

    No, Dr. Doolittle, what’s unbelievable is that you seem to think that no one else can become educated about something without some course or degree.

    I have taken lots of classes in biology, anatomy and physiology before I changed my major. However, it doesn’t make me an expert on autism.

    I also live on a small farm and vaccinate my own livestock, including cats and dogs, but that doesn’t make me a vaccine expert either.

    So, get off your high horse(no pun intended)and stop posting your resume’

    You share the opinion of half the world, mostly the 3rd world. It is really very sad and not something I expect from freepers and conservatives. Let ignorance be your guide and let modern technology be your enemy.

    Nope, quoting degrees still doesn’t make you an autism or vaccine expert. However, it does make you pompous.

    But when it comes to Gardasil, I am on board here. It was never tested on young ones. And those are the ones being targeted,

    That’s the whole point. Non of the vaccines are tested the way any other drug is required to be tested.
    They get fast tracked for the good of public health.

    After having chicken pox, the virus lays dormant in the nerve roots until it is reactivated at a later age. So more people getting chicken pox as kids would lead to fewer cases of shingles later in life because there would be more people with the virus lying dormant in their nerves waiting to be reactivated? Anti-Vaxxer logic is a wonder.
    ******************************************************
    I am going to explain this one more time. However, I am only responding to advance the conversation for anyone else on this thread that might be interested.
    I am done speaking to you. You don’t seem to have enough intellect to add anything to this discussion other than calling people stupid or idiot.

    Even if they have the vaccine, they still have the virus laying dormant. Chickenpox vaccines contain a weakened version of the live virus, which can reactivate later in life and cause shingles.

    Every time you come into contact with someone infected with chickenpox, you get a natural “booster shot” that protects you from shingles.

    In other words, shingles can be prevented by ordinary contact from children or grandchildren that have chickenpox. However, because of the chickenpox vaccine, there are fewer kids around with chicken pox to provide that natural immune boost.

    So as chickenpox rates have declined, shingles rates have skyrocketed.

    Ask anyone with shingles if they wish they’d had been vaccinated against chicken pox.
    *********************************************
    Since you like to throw around the words stupid and idiot to everyone, I think it’s classic that you just made this idiotic statement.

    They probably would have never gotten shingles if there was never a chicken pox vaccine. It was being exposed to chicken pox later in life that prevented people from getting shingles.
    Since, none of their children or grandchildren get chicken pox anymore...... Surprise, now they have shingles.

    However, don’t worry big pharma is there with another vaccine for you to take.

    You are getting sick and tired? At 82 I grew up at a time when people GOT SICK AND DIED! I started school in 1939 when the common diseases had names people today have NEVER heard about. Hardly a school year passed without one classmate or another sickening and dying.
    **********************************************

    That may be true, but they were not dying from mumps, measles, chicken pox, hepatitis, ect. Even whooping cough deaths were rare.
    Most kids died from infections, since antibiotics were not widely available until the late 40’s.

    In fact, the number one killer was flu/pneumonia followed by TB.

    So, please don’t act like all your classmates were dropping like flies due to polio or other childhood diseases.

    Much or likely. Since they get vaccinated at the same rate, maybe the culprit for the diagnosis lays elsewhere?
    ***************************************************

    1 in 42 boys, and 1 in 189 girls. That was the statistics when the autism rate was 1 in 68.

    The new rate seems to be 1 in 50, but I can’t find the new breakdown numbers of the boys vs girls.

    It really does not surprise me that boys are more likely to get autism.
    My daughter was born premature and had to spend some time in the NICU. The nurses always said that the boys were much weaker and had a lot more set backs than the girls.

    It seemed to be true, because the girls all went home earlier than the boys that were born at the same gestation.

    For whatever reason, the boys seem to have a weaker immune system than the girls.

    Is that the stat ju jure? It changes so fast it’s hard to keep up.

    *********************************************

    Your right, it is changing so fast it’s hard to keep up. The stats go up every year. There has not been one year that we have even seen a plateau. It just keeps going straight up.

    If the increases stay the same for the next 15 years as they have the last 15 years, 50% of all kids will be diagnosed with autism by 2032.

    However, since boys are more likely to be diagnosed than girls, it will be 80% of all boys will be diagnosed with autism by 2032.

    Think about that for a minute! 80% of all males will have autism by 2032, if the increases stay the same.

    Those are absolutely terrifying numbers.

    I know of at least one other SIDS death of a baby who received the same vaccination and from the same lot number.

    *****************************************

    The worst part is the CDC knows too.
    I received a call from the CDC. I think my daughter was about 1 1/2 old at the time. It’s been awhile now.

    They wanted to know the lot number of he MMR vaccine, and where she got it. I said that she never got any vaccines.

    I asked why, did she dodge a bullet? It shocked me that he actually said “maybe” and hung up.

    Parents who refuse to vaccinate should then be strictly liable for damages from anyone infected by their children. That seems fair.
    **********************************************

    The problem with that statement is that it’s the vaccine children that are doing the infecting. The CDC clearly states that if you have a immune compromise person living in your house( Cancer, Aids, ect.), don’t give your children certain vaccines that are made from live viruses.

    Tuberculosis (BCG),
    Oral Polio Vaccine,
    Measles,
    Rotavirus,
    Yellow Fever.

    Almost every outbreak in recent history has been from children that were vaccinated.

    The MMR vaccine effectiveness is 88% with two doses. This means that if 100 vaccinated people are exposed to the mumps, 12 will still become sick.
    In December, the CDC said that most of the individual state outbreaks had been occurring among vaccinated people.
