: Regarding the causes of autism, I can only say that more research is needed. I am not sure whether I condone trying anything and everything to "treat" it. Here's why, my twin nieces had been diagnosed as autistic. However after reading information on the internet, my sister firmly believes it is more likely mercury poisoning. Her sister-in-law found info on yahoo. The "syptoms" of m.p. are very similar to those of autism. The twins were small and needed bilirubin lights for jaundice for several weeks after their birth. Also, there is now a big stink, Federal government wise, that the DPT, Hib and several other vaccines contain Thimerisol a preservative. Thimerisol contains 49.6% mercury by weight or something like that. Taking into consideration that infants and toddlers are getting 2,3, 4 shots a visit, that is a lot of mercury going into their bodies at a time. More than what is considered safe by the FDA because the FDA approves each injection seperately! WOW! Since my nieces' livers were not functioning 100% it is possible that their bodies couldn't expell the excess mercury.
: I have also just found another site that claims there is a link between the MMR shots and autism.
: This one seems to make sense too!
: I understand that every parent wants what's best for their children, but I don't know if I would want to put my children through every test and medical procedure to "hopefully" find something to make them better especially if autism isn't really what you are treating. I guess it depends on each case and where you are with.
: The following are the websites and you can read for yourself and draw your own conclusions.
: I'm not a doctor, but am a parent of two young children and am concerned that this hasn't been researched by the FDA sooner. It makes me very irate to think that someone at the FDA wouldn't have looked at each vaccine and then at the schedule it is given to our babies and realise that we might be poisoning our children. I fully believe that immunizations are important, but maybe we should give one shot at a time....

COMMENT: Personally, I thank you for your interest, glad you're on board, and want to advise you that this is another 'hat' to most of us on this board; there are posts on down about this. What I'd like you to note is that mercury does not leave the body so it is xx number of times more dangerous than other heavy metals, so, each dose received is an accumulation. Also, it settles inside the cells, mostly in the brain. I woudn't be at all surprised if it's also the cause of the awful huge numbers of ADD's & ADHD's and other learning disabilities in this WORLD... not just USA wide. This 'new type of autism' is also world wide. NO child receiving vaccines with thimerosol is SAFE from heavy metal poisening, including yours, but your symptoms may be less or show up later. The mercury vaccines have been in use since 1930 when health care people organizations thought it was safe; it was even in teething powders. Gradually, it was figured out that certain types of infant illnesses were attributable to mercury use and it was banned from infant products...except for vaccines. Of course, back then, kids didn't get vaccines until they were older, say 3 to 5 years old, so their bodies -(our bodies)- may have been able to retain more of our brain matter balance. The Congress of the USA recently held an investigation into the autism rise, held on April 6, 2000 by representative Dan Burton whose 2 grandkids are also afflicted with this type of 'autism'. The testimonies from Dr's and parents - for or against - the vaccines program as it now is, are on-line on a gov't. site. Many of the Dr's have their own sites and have posted their own testimonies on them. But the place for you to read first is at the Autism foundations, www.autsim.com/ari Scroll down to article about mercury poisening or vaccines, forgot the exact title. The papers posted there are from the cheif researchers in the field, they also testified before the Burton-Autism-Vaccine committee hearing. Also try the Center for the Study of Autism at www.autism.org Many other sites are to be found from the front page of the gluten-casein free diet site at www.gfcf.org One of the primary Dr's treating this disorder, which the governments are trying to ignore-the disorder, that is-find at www.gnd.org The site of Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, click on his autism research bar. Another is Dr. Mike Goldberg, who testified to that congressional committee, find at www.neuroimmunedr.com Another is www.909shot.com That's the National Vaccine Information Center. None of those people listed are against vaccines and immunizations, even tho' our governments picture them as that. They are for SAFE vacinnes and SAFE and Appropriate AGE scheduling. I hope you do look up all this info... we NEED you...to get informed, to be aware of the possibllities for yourself and others. As final words, the reason we do all the variuos tests we can is because there is damage done to many systems of these kids... by whatever... and much of the conditions and behaviors can be alleviated to cured by biological and natural substances treatments. Mercury poisening is hard to find. We do a hair analysis for heavy metals in the system that wil leach out some. Also, by the types of heavy metals that do show up, it can be determined that mercury poisening is present because, as said, mercury, unless it's Very recent dosing, does not wash out of the body. The idea of chelating out heavy metals and mercury is, to be sure, more recent. It is also a more risky procedure. The other therapeutic treatments aren't risky. They help to heal damaged guts, livers, stomachs, pancreases, etc., that have been damaged by 'whatever'. So, until the governments break down and confess their part in causing this disorder, they wont investigate it much. They are now starting to but very slowly. Also, their main concentration of research is pollution from chemicals in air, ground and water. They get most indignatnt when it's suggested that vaccines are't all clean, which they aren't. Not only mercury use, but formaldehyde use in them (arsenic of lead) and 'hot shots', which are an accidental overload of some of the serum types in batches. It just goes on and on. This current gov't just couldn't make mistakes, nor could any other gov't's, USA or those overseas, could they? Grandma Peg
