May 2007 MCS America News: Living in a Toxic World. Do You Know What Counts?

Often times we are trusting beyond belief. But when does trust become dangerous? Try this quiz:

What year is your car?

What make is your car?

What model is your car?

What color paint is on your car?

How many cylinders does it have?

What kind of gas do you put into your car?

How many miles are on the odometer?

How many miles to the gallon does your car get?

How often should you change the oil in your car?

What kind of tires are on your car?

What kind of interior does your car have?

What color is the interior of your car?


What is in the vaccination that the doctor is about to inject into your child?

What is in the amalgam filling the dentist is about to put in your child's mouth?

The Autism Society of America (2007) defines autism as a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. Both children and adults with autism typically show difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities.

Autism currently affects 1 in 150 children according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2007) and is one of five disorders known as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD) which include: Autistic Disorder, Asperger's Disorder, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder (CDD), Rett's Disorder, and PDD-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS).

Parents across the world have come forth blaming their children's autism on the MMR vaccination or vaccinations which contains thimerosal, a form of mercury. Though it is controversial whether there is any connection, the reality is that the symptoms of autism are nearly identical to those of mercury poisoning (Bernard et al, 2000). Further, it may well be a form of toxic injury, or multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS).

Slimak performed a study of in 49 autistic children. "Elimination of food-related reactions entirely allowed effects of environmental chemicals to be thoroughly studied indefinitely in the absence of food-related symptoms. Initially unaffected by social contexts, the autistic subjects acted out the ways they were affected by their environment without the altering effects of societal influences; and severity of the adverse effects made observation and study easier. There was a strong correlation (P<.000) between environmental exposure levels and autistic symptoms and behaviors. There appeared to be nothing inherently wrong with autistic children studied. The children in the program (universal diet and clean room) returned to normal physically, in temperament, in awareness of surroundings and others, in emotions and empathy, and in ability to learn. Based on the results of the present study, a broad spectrum of severe and chronic autistic symptoms appear to be environmentally based, apparently caused by chronic exposure to volatile organic compounds, and appear to be fully reversible in the proper environment" (Simak, 2003, Abstract).

MCS America suggests that parents take the time to learn about autism and research vaccination safety. There is too much coincidence in the increase of autism and other neurodevopmental disorders since the inception of vaccinations. These conditions were virtually unheard of before vaccines become commonplace. This is truly an epidemic situation. Autism is now known in every race, every income level, every education level, and both genders.
