MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell: "Autism affects some 70 million people across the globe."



Wrights Discuss Vatican Conference on Andrea Mitchell
Published on Nov 20, 2014

What a staggering statistic. The latest figure I'd heard was from Dr. Tom Insel when he testified during a Congressional hearing last March that at least a million people in the United States are affected by autism, the vast majority under 18.

Committee on Oversight & Government Reform had an #autism hearing... recording starts at 26 mins.
FULL VIDEO embedded in tweet.

"I THINK IT'S REALLY HELPFUL TO PUT ALL OF THIS IN SOME CONTEXT, AND THE REASON WHY I KEEP HARPING ON THIS BEING THE WRONG RABBIT GOING DOWN THE WRONG HOLE IS THAT WHEN YOU COMPARE AUTISM TO AIDS, IT'S REALLY QUITE EXTRAORDINARY.

SO AS YOU SAID, CHAIRMAN MICA, $160M IS BEING SPENT IN 2012, IT'S A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN THAT, BUT THAT'S BASICALLY THE AUTISM FIGURE, AND YOU ALSO, BOTH OF YOU, CITED THE ENORMOUS PUBLIC HEALTH COST AND ECONOMIC COST.

AIDS AFFECTS ABOUT A MILLION PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES. DO YOU WANT TO GUESS WHAT THE AIDS BUDGET IS FOR RESEARCH AT THE NIH?

IT'S 3 BILLION DOLLARS.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT 160 MILLION DOLLARS FOR A DISORDER (AUTISM) THAT AFFECTS AT LEAST AS MANY CHILDREN AS ARE AFFECTED BY, AS ARE AFFECTED WITH AIDS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE COUNTRY."

http://www.ageofautism.com/2013/03/dr-tom-insel-on-autism-if-there-is-a-true-increase-if.html

...Then in 2010, Insel spoke for an hour and a half at the National Institutes of Health (link moved). Insel made the stunning statement, "Eighty percent of the people with a diagnosis of autism are under the age of eighteen."

In addition, Insel said, "We have responded to this as if it's a crisis. We see this as an enormous public health challenge. If you look at those numbers, the increase and recognize how many of those kids will become adults, we ...also need to be thinking about how we prepare the nation for a million people who may need significant amounts of services as they are no longer cared for by their parents or as their parents are no longer around."

How Recent Is Autism? Vivian Murdock, oldest child in the first case study on autism, born 9.13.31.

How Recent Is Autism?

So recent that the late great director Mike Nichols, born 11.6.31, was just a few weeks younger than Vivian Murdock, oldest child in the first case study on autism, born 9.13.31. ASSERTION: Autism is man-made.

ASIDE: See post 11 (above) for recent Washington Post link referencing Age of Autism website.

http://www.ageofautism.com/2014/11/age-of-autism-weekly-wrap-.html#more

When Mike Nichols died Thursday, I noticed that he was born in 1931, the same year that autism began (in the person of Vivian Murdock, oldest child in Leo Kanner’s case series from 1943, whom Teresa Conrick, Mark Blaxill and I first identified on AOA – an example, come to think of it, of what financial support helps accomplish).

When I learn about other people born then, it reminds me how recent autism is – within the span of one lifetime, this catastrophe has descended upon us. The reason, we believe, is the first use of ethylmercury in commercial compounds starting then, including in vaccines as thimerosal.

So I wrote a brief note about the coincidence of birth year, as I often do (it’s still up there in the right hand corner). Then, reading his obit in the Times on Friday morning, I came across this: “Young Michael’s sense of being a stranger in a strange land was aggravated by the loss of his hair at age 4, the result of a reaction to an inoculation for whooping cough.” That’s called alopecia. He would have gotten the shot in Germany. That nice head of blond hair, it turns out, was a toupee.

Well, then. A vaccine caused him a severe reaction in 1935 or 1936. I assume that the vaccine – pertussis, later to become the worst part of the deadly and damaging DPT -- contained thimerosal. (Remember, Asperger’s was showing up in neighboring Austria then. Bayer, which used ethylmercury in pesticides, was based there.)

Here’s a counterfactual exercise. What if, instead of musing about bad parenting, Leo Kanner had realized the toxic exposure in autism, just as Mike Nichol’s doctors did in alopecia, and the Age of Autism had been stopped as soon as it started?

Are you calling these Harvard & other MDs baseless names & suggesting they should be made pariahs?

Really? Well, let me personally urge you to THINK AGAIN. If you're not familiar with the promising comprehensive Mumper study, you should be, especially the references section. Please read carefully, critically and consider sharing with your favorite pediatrician. Or not, it's entirely up to you.

My Message to Harvard Kennedy School Grads
Posted: 05/28/2014 6:20 pm EDT Updated: 07/28/2014 5:59 am EDT

The following speech was delivered at the 2014 Commencement of the Harvard Kennedy School, where I was previously Anna Lindh Professor of the Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy and the Founding Executive Director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy.

...Now, I tell you this story because while I have a serious message for you today, my more personal appeal is to stay open to all that is around you. Professionally and personally, you never know when lightning will strike.

I cannot imagine disregarding the informed& unequivocal views of CDC scientist Dr William W Thompson

TRANSCRIPT OF VIDEO ABOVE:

"You know in the United States the only vaccine it's still in is for pregnant women.

I can say confidently I do think Thimerosal causes tics so I don't know why they still give it to pregnant women, like that's the last person I would give mercury to.

Thimerosal from vaccines causes tics. You start a campaign and you just make that your mantra.

Do you think a pregnant mother would want to take a vaccine that they knew caused tics? Absolutely not! I would never give my wife a vaccine that I thought caused tics.

I can say tics are four times more prevalent in kids with autism.

There is biologic plausibility right now to say that Thimerosal causes autism-like features."
