In Reply to: One definition comes from Dr. Goldberg - not autism but a disease (medical thus potentially curable) posted by Yvonne on August 21, 2000 at 15:25:16:
: :As with most people who think they're onto something, he feels that his definition is the one. Maybe it is. He feels that the new autism epidemic isn't autism at all but a disease, an auto-immune dysfunction. You can check this out on his website, www.neuroimmunedr.com. It seems to be the only answer that makes sense for kids like my daughter, who started out normal and regressed after 2 years, after tons of language, sentences, eye contact - all gone. What else could it be? A time-delayed gene????
Autoimmune diseases - certainly all autoimune diseases are increasingly now known to be
caused by a 'virus' and or 'disease' such as:- Rubella, Measles, Epstein barr Virus, Hep B
(the latter now has-
-Multiple .Sclerosis. listed on the side effects!!)
( Interestingly, Epstein barr virus has long been
' linked' to Rubella Vaccine ) and given the years they've been vaccinating...........
(versus the 'Autism' Introduction i doubt if any of these infections can truly be called 'naturally
occuring' more like - ' Man Made!'
Vaccines are the culprit .
This is My opinion anway,
