We’ve Shown Them the Proof

Has 'science based medicine' proven vaccine-induced autism doesn't exist?

Has 'science based medicine' proven vaccine-induced autism doesn't exist?

“It was very moving at the end of the rally when Jenny McCarthy asked parents to hold up the posters of their children and show the media their proof. The crowd was silent as the cameras spanned the beautiful faces of child after child who had developed autism after a vaccine. They couldn’t all be coincidences, I thought.”

This is an excerpt from my book, Unlocking Jake: The Story of a Rabies Vaccine, Autism & Recovery, where I described the Green Our Vaccines Rally held in Washington, DC, in June 2008. To be among so many people who just get it was an experience I was privileged to be a part of.

With Autism Awareness Month and the announcement of the new autism numbers, the rally has been on my mind quite a bit. I keep seeing the faces of those children and feeling like my heart will break when I think of the damage that has been done to them and their families. I remember Jenny saying that she had spoken with more than 50,000 parents, and they all had the same story. Their children were developing normally, had an MMR or a DTaP or some other shot, and then something went wrong. I remember RFK Jr. saying that we are raising the sickest generation of children in the history of our country. I remember the passion and determination and love that emanated from the parents. Parents who were fighting for their kids. Parents who will keep fighting until they are heard.

Most of all, I remember Jenny’s words: Their proof. Those are powerful words. If you’re the parent of a child with autism, you have your proof that vaccines can cause or trigger autism. There’s a lot of proof out there. For anyone who is willing to see it. Unfortunately, that doesn’t include our government and most of our doctors. I’m not saying they will admit that there could be a problem with vaccines—far too much money tied up in the vaccine program. Way too much to lose. But I have to wonder, what would they consider proof?

Define “proof”

Science. They like that word. “Science has spoken when it comes to the theory that some childhood vaccines can cause autism. They don’t, the Institute of Medicine concluded three years ago.”[1] The AMA. The AAP. The WHO. They have spoken, too.

Thousands of parents of vaccine-injured children have also spoken. So what if it’s “anecdotal evidence”? Anecdotal evidence can be a start, right? After all, they are personal experiences, which “may be the first indication that there is a meaningful biological effect in play.” With proper documentation, they can be useful for “pointing the way to future research.” The findings or conclusions should then be “verified by controlled prospective clinical studies.” [2]

What could qualify more as a personal experience—and a more reliable one—than a mother who carries her baby inside her body for nine months, gives birth to him, and then watches him around the clock, catering to his every need? A mother who knows what every look and sound mean because she knows her baby better than anyone in the world. She wakes at night, her full breasts leaking, just seconds before the baby begins to cry. Her body is in tune with his body. She delights in the first smile, the first word, the first everything. She dutifully takes him for every checkup and comforts him as he’s given his vaccines. Two months. Four months. Six months. Twelve months. And so on and so on. Right on schedule.

Eventually, things start to change. She watches in horror as her precious, beautiful baby she loves with everything in her is sucked into a black hole called autism. She takes him to the doctor—the same one who gave her baby all those vaccines. You know what she is told. You’ve been there. We’ve all been there. Coincidence. Imagination. Your baby was always like that. You just missed it. Same ole, same ole. It has nothing to do with the vaccines. Vaccines are safe.

Would this scenario be any different if a doctor or a scientist observed this baby from day one? All day every day, through many sleepless nights, through every developmental milestone, through all those vaccines … and the day that everything changed? And what if he had documented it all with journal entries and videos? Proof. Would that make what happened real? Valid? Would it be called a vaccine injury?

What are they thinking—or are they?

How do doctors keep quiet? Say nothing? How do they ignore what parents are telling them? Do they ask themselves, even for a second, as they inject multiple vaccines into a 6-pound baby, if it is safe? Do they lie awake at night like the parents of our sick and damaged kids, scared to death that maybe it’s not safe? That maybe a vaccine the baby got earlier in the day is responsible for making him sick? Maybe triggers autism that robs the child and the family of the life they once had? Does it even cross their minds? How do they continue to defend the vaccine program? Do they even know how vaccines work? If they did, could they give one to a sick baby with an already-overloaded immune system? Could they give so many all at the same time? Can they be that ignorant?

Consider this scenario. A mother rushes her child to the emergency room because he is having trouble breathing. I bet that the doctor on call would ask what the child was doing just before it started. He would want to know if he’s on any medication. If so, what kind, and for how long. “No medication,” the mom says. But then she tells the doctor that a few weeks ago her son had diarrhea shortly after eating a piece of candy with peanut butter in it. A couple days after that, he ate some more of the candy and got hives. “I have a friend whose little girl is allergic to peanuts,” she tells the doctor, “and I’m wondering if this is the case with my son. The symptoms are similar, and they seem to be getting worse.” What do you want to bet the doctor would suggest some allergy tests and, “In the meantime, keep him away from anything with peanuts in it”? Do you think he would tell the mom she was crazy or imagining it? Or that she’s anti-peanut butter? Now suppose this happened before doctors were “aware” of peanut allergies and their symptoms. What do you want to bet he’d start talking with other doctors, maybe doing some research of his own, to see if other professionals had seen children with similar symptoms? He might even end up writing an article in a medical journal on the subject. Do you think the pediatric or scientific community—or the parents of these children—would tell him he’s crazy? Has a vivid imagination? Missed it until now? Is anti-peanut butter?

Pretty clear cut, right? A child with a peanut allergy eats a peanut and has a reaction. Why? Because of whatever it is about peanuts that makes him sick. But a child who is sensitive to a vaccine and is injected with it and has a reaction couldn’t possibly have the reaction because of the vaccine. Something else caused it. I covered many of the proposed causes in my last article. I think a few more have been added since last week. You gotta give them credit. They’re quick with the ideas. Pathetic, but quick. Let’s see. What are the latest? The mom was too fat when she was pregnant. The dad was too old. They lived within two blocks of a freeway. … And they call autism after a vaccine a “coincidence”?

“As study findings are reported, researchers are hoping to see repetition—confirmation, that is—that certain factors are playing significant roles.” [3]  Repetition? Confirmation? They have both. All they have to do is look at our children and listen to us.

Wrong, wrong, wrong

Does anyone remember hearing that “More doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette”? You can watch a video of a 1949 TV commercial on YouTube. [4] I won’t bother quoting from it. It’s priceless. Just watch it. Do it now—it’s short.

We know that lung cancer kills 1.3 million people worldwide every year. “There is clear-cut evidence of the link between tobacco use and lung cancer. The number of tobacco-related lung cancers is 90% for men and 78% for women in the US.” [5]

I love this one:

“In the 1940’s, cigarettes were seen as a harmless way to relax. Soldiers were given them to take the edge off and for a short escape from the battlefield. The connection between cigarettes and health problems was still years off. In the 1950’s, the first reports began circulating that proved a connection between cigarettes and cancer. It wasn’t until 1964 that the US Surgeon General finally issued a report that concluded that ‘excessive cigarette smoking’ caused lung cancer. By that time, doctors had stopped hawking cigarettes. But the ill effects lingered on for years.” [6]

The doctors were wrong about cigarettes. Look how long it took someone to realize there was a problem. Then look how long it took for our government to admit it. Over a decade between the time the studies started showing a direct correlation between smoking and lung cancer and the Surgeon General issuing a report. How many people died of cancer during that time period? How many could have been saved?

How long before there is an admission of a POSSIBILITY that vaccines might cause autism? And once it’s admitted, how long before someone actually does something about it?

I repeat. They were wrong about cigarettes. And they’re wrong about vaccines. The real kicker? They KNOW they’re wrong. We’ve shown them the proof.

    Thank you so much. Love the peanut allergy analogy.
    Have always thought it ridiculously dangerous to remove anaphylactic shock from the list of vaccine contraindications. Peanut allergic people are given an epipen & told to avoid peanuts like the plague. Meantime those who have suffered anaphylaxis from previous jabs are told to wait 20 mins in the waiting room so that they can be resuscitated in case they go into shock. Also they are on hand for a Rx for steroids should they have an allergic reaction.
    There were no peanut allergies in my generation, so I guess the peanut oil in vaccines has left many people hypersensitive to it.

  • Cheryl Rounds

    They claim there is no proof and it would be unethical to not vaccinate children to do comparason studies yet there are whole communities of people who do not vaccinate their children – these include the Homefirst mhy edical practice in Chicago and the Amish. These communities have virtually no autism.  Why is it that scienced oes not see these people as valid comparrison groups to study?

  • Parkita5

    Great article! I have a friend with an autistic child and I have tried to get her to see the correlation to the vaccines, how Autism rates have risen with the higher number of recommended vaccinations. She refuses to acknowledge it. She says there is no correlation, that the rates are rising because doctors have new criteria for diagnosing ASD. Her child is fully vaxed, on schedule. I wish she would just consider the notion! She says she’s done tons of research by talking to doctors, therapists, and reading medical journals so she is right and it is not from vaccines. Well, hello … doctors, therapists and medical journals (written by doctors) are all in the Big Pharma circle. I guess some people are just so brainwashed by their doctors there is no opening their eyes to another possibility.

    Here is a great quote by a young author (Brandon Smith), who was making a political point, but is very applicable to the medical establishment as well:

    Understanding the slave mentality:

    “The True Slave: The true slave is not a person who
    has been shackled, beaten, tortured, and made to comply under threat of
    death.  As long as that poor soul has the spirit of rebellion and is
    ever seeking freedom, they are not imprisoned fully.  The true slave is a
    person who enjoys their subservience, who is weighted with fear by the
    very idea of independence from the system, and who would actually fight
    and die to maintain the establishment which enslaves them.  The true
    slave is not able to imagine living any other life beyond his
    micro-managed existence.
    The Facts Lose Value: The worst flaw of the slave
    is not necessarily his ability to overlook the truth, but his ability to
    see it, comprehend it, and then shrug it off anyway because it is
    contrary to his mission to fulfill his private delusions.  For the
    slave, the truth exists, but is no longer useful.  Lies make his
    universe turn, and facts are a tool to be used or cast aside at his
    leisure.”

    And the saddest thing of all is that these medical busybodies think they will be satisfied when we are all slavish like them, but that too would leave them even more vacuous than they are now!!

    These are all the results of a long-term business plan.  The plan doesn’t include very many humans — at least not the kind of being currently and commonly referred to as human.

    Doctors are either:
    a) in a dream-like, hypnotic state from the inculcation received in medical school (not education, but schooling) and they therefore are not able to see what they’re doing or refuse to see what they’re doing–they are told that the new normal is that x percentage of people get autism and cancer and arthritis and lupus and macular degeneration and heart disease and celiac disease and schizophrenia and (type your disease here),
    OR
    b) they are awake and and just don’t give a cr*p…they have school loans to pay and mortgages and country club payments and it’s your fault for allowing them to get away with maiming and killing you and yours. In the meantime, in their little minds, they are living an okay life…tough cr*p on you.

    This will never have a political solution. Stop looking to your abusers for help!!  Don’t bother looking to the FDA, DHHS, DOH, Congress or anyone in the realm of politica or bureaucratic theater to “help” you. They’ve been “helping” you all along this path and you can see where it’s gotten you. Only you can help you. Step outside the system whenever and wherever possible.  The system exists to serve the goals of the system.

    Thanks Jeffry – have posted the link on VINE.

    As far as I can tell, based on the research I’ve undertaken, vaccination is an organised criminal enterprise dressed up as disease prevention by means of junk science. This child abuse will only stop when the majority of parents come to realise – either the easy way or the hard way – that compliance with the national child poisoning schedule is not in their children’s best interest. 
     

  • Thebirthsource

    When more and more doctors start seeing vaccine induced autism in their own kids, that’s when THEY will wake up.  But until then, parents have to educate parents.

  • http://vactruth.com Jeffry John Aufderheide

    Much appreciate it Erwin! By the way, I think your assessment of the situation is accurate. All a parent would need to do is go to the Department of Justice website and look up the pharmaceutical companies by name.

  • Neikos mom

    There is no such thing as a safe vaccine, and if people still think we can “green the vaccines”, they are way off-base.  Vaccines never eradicated nor decreased any disease, including polio.  Watch Dr. Tenpenny’s videos on youtube for proof of that statement.  Isn’t it time the people stood up and said “NO” to this 220+-year-old lie?

    I love this quote by someone who happens to have the same name as you, Kenneth, except that he’s a medical doctor: 

    “We live in a world ruled by corporate interests and agendas that are not in the best interests of the citizens of this planet. The type of mercury used in vaccines has never been safety tested by the Federal Government for toxicity in humans. This is an unconscionable oversight failure at best, and at worst …it is an example that we have left consensus reality to be created by liars, cheats, killers and the junk scientists they employ.” Dr Kenneth Stoller MD  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36_qz2beMaE 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Erwin-Alber/548856074 Erwin Alber

    I think Jenny McCarthy is doing a great job, but I have serious misgivings about the “Green Our Vaccines” slogan, because if all the toxic substances were removed from vaccines, there would be no vaccines left. Vaccine ingredients are after all toxic by their very nature as chemical and biological agents. Vaccines need to be banned, not greened, and because they won’t ban them, boycotted. That is, parents need to refuse to comply with their country’s national child poisoning schedule.

    Powerful! Factual!

    are major cause of current chronic-condition ‘autism’ epidemic”

  • Casquehead

    Anybody who reads this piece and considers it a scientific review, needs a primer of what a clinical study is, how it’s done, what the (widely accepted) rules are. This paper meets none of those standards.

  • Someautisticguy

    Claiming a vaccine gives autism is ludicrous, and you should be sued for this false accusation. Quite frankly, I find it insulting.
    I was born with autism, but no one ever found out until I was 23. I’ve had all my vaccinations before my 12th, and I’ve always been ‘difficult’, ‘not useful’ and ‘annoying’ to quote a few people I met during my early years. And because no one ever discovered my autism, or took the time to investigate my ‘ordinary’ behavior, I’m now dealing with all kinds of added troubles, like depression, paranoia, fear, aggression, suicidal thoughts, trust issues etc. I basically hate humans, because of the way they’ve treated me, and even worse, treat each other. And still, I’m the weirdo?
    Claiming a vaccine ‘injured’ your kid is just an insult I won’t take. Give your kid the love and therapy it deserves, it didn’t change or get lost, it was born like that, you’re only just noticing. Be glad you did! My parents have been feeling guilty for years now, in tears every time I tell ‘em about my therapy, because they weren’t as lucky as you.
    Look back in your family history and read up on some scientific literature about autism, I’m sure you’ll discover the root on either your own, or the father’s, side of the family.
    For me, I was 17 when I first discovered I could be autistic. My brother was studying to be a doctor, my mother is a nurse and my father isn’t a dummy either. They all denied it, it wasn’t possible. After 3 more years of failing at school and taking care of myself, I started seeking help from psychologists and other therapists. It took me 3 more years of talking to different professionals and multiple psychological tests, before I finally got an appointment with a specialist. The guy knew within minutes after he started talking to me. No one ever noticed, not my parents, not my brothers, not my family, not the teachers in school that were trained for it, not my psychology teachers, not my colleagues when I worked as a social worker with mentally retarded and autistic people, and not even the therapists that weren’t specialized in autism. No one, until that one psychiatrist, specialized in autism.
    Just to be sure, I even got a second opinion from a specialized institution, and they confirmed it again. Even the off chance of it being ADD was checked, it was definitely Asperger syndrome.

    Now, knowing that, I hope you do the right thing, and seek the help your kid deserves, instead of blaming others for something no one is to blame for. And really, autism is a blessing, if treated right. Don’t make the same mistake everyone in my past made.

     I guess you’re so brainwashed by this false prophet that you’re accusing your ‘friend’ of being a brainwashed zombie? Way to go, thank god you’re not my friend.

    Oh, just a side note to my comment below. Now my parents are learning about autism, they finally recognize my odd behavior as a child, as autism. They had never noticed it like that before, they just thought I was “strong willed”. But digging into family lines, as I did, reveals interesting information.
    Shortly after I was diagnosed, I talked to both my parents, and came to the conclusion I probably had it from my mother’s father. I talked to my grandmother about him, and I was quite right. Even my memories about him completely match the stereotypical Asperger. He was obviously never diagnosed, as that wasn’t done in that time. Besides, back then it was rather easy for an Asperger to perform well, especially with the whole evolution of technology (my grandfather actually made quite a lot of money inventing micro-chips for Philips).
    Not much later, I was talking to my uncle about this, and we came to the conclusion that he might have Asperger syndrome as well, 6 months later he got a diagnosis.
    Now, because we know the genes are in our family, we know that both his male children, have a higher risk of being autistic. One of them is also autistic (if the genes are in the family, there’s an 80% chance sons will be autistic), and is very lucky to be diagnosed at an early age.

    Anyway, good luck with your kid.
    Do right by it and stop saying it’s injured.

    Oh, just one more thing: the use of tobacco doesn’t give cancer, smoking does.
    If you use a vaporizer, you basically cancel out the damaging effect of ‘smoking’.
    And because someone (the scientists, back when smoking was considered healthy) is wrong once, doesn’t make him always wrong. You probably were wrong once in your life, so you must be wrong now as well, according to your logic.

    If the results are dramatic, and the number of cases large, then anecdotal evidence is the most certain evidence there is.  For example, if in the 50,000 cases mentioned above, there is a 1 in 10 chance that it happened by random chance (by coincidence), then the odds of all 50,000 cases happening by random chance is 1 in (10 raised to the 50,000) power.  If that is not certainty, then nothing is.  That is more certain than any double-blind medical study. But, most likely the odds of each happening by random chance is 1 in a million.  Do the math and you come up with something more certain than anyone can imagine.

    You claim you want to protect children from so called vaccine preventable diseases. But people who have studied the unbiased information realize the actual harm and ineffectiveness of vaccines. They want to protect their children from the harm of the now endless CDC vaccine schedule. They realize as well the robust health of unvaccinated children, comparably to those who received all the vaccines on schedule. We can see as well the large numbers of unvaccinated known of in the Amish communities, and that there is no autism and no onslaught of the typical degenerative disorders and autoimmune diseases. Yet the propagandists continue to lie and attempt to mislead the public about that fact. There is nothing they will not attempt to cover up.

    Educated people realize that we have been fed nothing but misinformation and lies for the past 100 years and more, as to the actual reduction in these illnesses. I would wonder if any amount of evidence and unbiased science would be enough for you? Obviously all you need are the mislead claims of Paul Offit, CHOP and the CDC? But where is their actual science??? You know, they claim to be the purveyors of science. But did you ever actually look for it and realize how lacking it actually is? On the other hand, these believed authorities ignore a bulwark of unbiased science that shows the neurological harm of vaccines and much more; direct likes to autism as well; and yet they leave the parents mislead to believe that no such scientific evidence exists. They said the same for Wakefield as well, that no studies anywhere have replicated those results. THEY…LIED!!!!   That, while continuing to hawk (promote) the known bogus epidemiological studies the CDC and AAP funded. 

    Point for point, fact for fact; scientific study for scientific study; you vax promoting people as it stands, will be on losing ground every time. Deny it all you want, but I will stand on that and guarantee it.

    How do you explain that these healthy children get for example the MMR vaccine, and or a load of other vaccines with it, and then the parents witness that child slip into the hell of regarding these noted and said forms of disconnected from existence and reality, known and diagnosed now as autism??? All coincidental? And what you describe for yourself is NOT what many of these parents are experiencing! We are talking about totally disconnected non functional autism, with many times loss of speech, or at least that is on a cognitive and intelligible level. How many parents of these children, have or have had autism in their family history tree at any point? Do you even know the answer?  

    How do you explain the effectiveness of biomedical treatment in the reversal of autism; which is nothing more than detoxing the vaccines and healing the damage?

    Do you have any studies (somedude), to back your claims of this said autism epidemic being genetic? So, the numbers going from 1 in 10,000 prior to the NVCA, and the no liability increase in vaccines, then leading to a 1 in 88 number today, is what? A coincidence, and all due to better diagnosis? Or do you believe that 1 in 88 number is correct, however yet all due to a sudden shift in fault genetics? For how many centuries has man existed on this earth? And autism rates were 1 in 10,000 prior to the 1980′s. Do you see a large hole in your story?  

    Autism is a blessing, you stated? Really? Wow. Tell that to the parents who have to give around the clock care to these children? Get yourself a traveling seminar going nationwide, and start preaching your fine news and advise to the parents!!! See how well that is received? Call them and ask if you can speak at this conference below, in May 2012?

    Ya, but we are talking about not the average citizen making a claim; we are talking about our so to be trusted medical so called and believed public health authorities, that should have known better then, just as they should know better now. And actually they do; they just have to much to lose to ever admit the truth.

  • Feebeedee

    Oh boy…don’t you get it…it’s sarcasm…a play on the manner in which most doctors actually respond to parents of VACCINE DAMAGED children…

  • Dihirod

    Well put. But surely by then the mother would have been accused of MSbP and had her child taken from her? Why waste all that medication on her?

  • Pikey

    First off, let me say that as a father of two, I am very sympathetic to those that have children with autism. I can not possibly know the hardships that it causes. However, as the same father of two, I can not even begin to comprehend the failed logic and emotionality that is so evident in this movement. While it is great that they are studying vaccines and they should do everything they can to improve them, it is amazingly irresponsible for this movement to attempt to get people to stop vaccinating their children. I assume many in this movement either have a child with Autism or are close to someone who has a child with Autism. Yet, how many in this movement have a child or are close to a child who has suffered or died from Pertussis or Poliomyelitis? While most of us live in a world where these are not everyday problems, I happen to be very good friends with parents who’s little girl thankfully survived an infection of Pertussis. How did she get Pertussis? She came into contact with an unvaccinated child prior to being old enough to get the vaccine herself. She came extremely close to dying and experienced a nightmare that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. All of which was preventable. Vaccines only work from a true herd immunity. When you choose to not vaccinate your child, you are putting the rest of us at risk as well. Autism is extremely complicated and we don’t know everything about it yet, including it’s causes. I’m all for researching as much as we can about it. But the research doesn’t seem to matter to this movement. Look at the studies in Norway and Sweden, who maintain medical records like it was some kind of holy order to do so. They have looked into the vaccine issue, and they couldn’t find any link. No cause, no effect. Others have done the same elsewhere in the world. However, we know about the causes of Petrusis, Poliomyelitis, Mumps, Measles, etc… They don’t seem so bad now because most of us don’t have to worry about them, because of vaccines. And please don’t assume this is some drug company conspiracy. You deliver a particular vaccine once. One charge. If people actually get the diseases that vaccines prevent, then you get a windfall of charges and you may even get a customer for life; as short as that may be. Vaccines are not good for drug companies. Drugs that a person has to take every day for the rest of their lives is good for them. I’m not saying drug companies don’t try to push medications for profits, I’m saying think about for more than a few minutes and you’ll realize that vaccines are the worst possible way for a drug company to make money. Please just think about your effect on the rest of the people around you when you make your decision.

  • Jammy Lee

    I don’t understand. If the child is vaccinated and the vaccine supposedly works, then how can the child get the disease from unvaccinated child? Call me stupid, but I don’t understand the logic.

    Second, I don’t see what you are saying. Unlike the government that wants to force people to do stuff, here is just information for you to make you own decision. I don’t see how you can still bad-mouth people who are sharing info and not trying to force people to do stuff.

    Third, you obviously did not do research on drug companies. First, drug companies made a lot of the vaccines. Second, for the past decade vaccination has been the most common ways for diseases to spread (there are many theories regarding to why this is, but the numbers are there).

    Again, if you are vaccinated and still get the disease, please explain how you can say the vaccines still “work”…

  • Jammy Lee

    Oh, it’s “unscientific” because you are not doing it in a lab :D

    The lamestream media is just messed up. When we look at enough “anecdotal evidence” it’s called historical data, which is scientific. And yet they say it’s not… XD

  • Nancy

    I believe their should be INFORMED CHOICE to you medical care, including vaccines. There is no choice when you can not put your child in day care or school without the vaccine. If you would like to become more informed, read the book Vaccine Epidemic. Very informative at how vaccines are profitable, how their “safety” is “tested.”
    It answers some questtions that you really do not think about. Why hepatitis B vaccine right immediately at birth…Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted disease, or sharing needles from IV drug abuse. So WHY give int when a child is barely born. Tetanus, is treated with antibiotcs and is not spead, so why vaccinate when there is a treatment IF you get the diseas. I read the book and it does offer some interesitng thoughs about the viccination epidemic. It talks about herd immunity and they really do not know if there is such a thing….
