Something is very wrong here.
Shell Tzorfas on YouTube pointed us to this U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) paper “Trends in the Prevalence of Developmental Disabilities in U.S. Children, 1997–2008” and what are some pretty astonishing figures.
The joint CDC—Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) paper not only revealed that one in six children across America suffered from a developmental disability in 2006-2008, but the rate of parent-reported developmental disabilities in their children had increased 17.1% from 1997 to 2008.
Worse, in the 12-year period, the prevalence of autism increased nearly three hundred percent (289.5%).
Males were twice as likely to suffer from developmental disabilities as females. The sample size wasn’t small, either; the study included some 119,367 children.
One in six. That means if you go to just two of your neighbors’ homes with children, it is very likely that at one of them, you will find at least one child with a developmental disability. And these figures were from 2008, so that begs the question: how bad are they now?
And moreover —
What is happening to our children?
The rates of autism have skyrocketed and continue to get worse each year in this country. The CDC now estimates autism effects 1 in 68 children in the U.S., up a whopping 30% from 2012. For boys, the rate is now 1 in 42. The CDC continues to say genes play a role, but the agency readily admits it doesn’t know what is causing all this autism.
The prevalence rate for autism before 1990 was only three children per 10,000. When the CDC began surveillance of the study population in 2000, it was one child in every 150. Look at the chart above. Autism just keeps going up.
Back in 2009, when the autism rates first rocketed to 1 in 88, the Environmental Working Group suggested exposure to neurotoxic chemicals could definitely play a role: most notably, mercury.
“Upending the federal government’s approach to regulating toxic chemicals and putting tough emissions standards in place at power plants are two good places to start,” said Cook. The federal Toxic Substances Control Act has allowed the chemical industry to flood the marketplace with toxic chemicals, including neurotoxins, with virtually no proof they are safe for people.
While the medical “professionals” keep insisting this drastic increase is simply due to better detection methods, eventually that won’t hold water if the autism rates continue to soar as fast as they have been…unless they just up and decide basically every child is autistic.
Then again, the CDC is currently ignoring a whistleblower within its own ranks who came forward to admit that the agency knowingly manipulated data to hide a link in one of its major studies between the MMR vaccine and autism — a link which showed a 340% increase in autism specifically in African American boys given an MMR shot at age three or younger.
The implications of this admission, and the millions of children potentially harmed, is staggering.
Even if you pretend that isn’t happening, America has the most aggressive mandated vaccine schedule in the world. The CDC now recommends up to 37 shots of 14 different vaccinations by the age of two, prompting the National Vaccine Information Center to ask, “Is the atypical manipulation of the immune system with more and more vaccines in early life setting some children up for chronic disease and disability?”
In short, are our children healthier for it? As disease, auto-immune disorders, and permanent disabilities continue to trend perilously upward year after year, the answer is nope, not really.
Parents are expected to continue to shoot their children up no questions asked with a cocktail of antibiotics, formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate (MSG), bovine fetal tissue, polysorbate and heavy metals like aluminum and the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal. When these are shot into the bloodstream, they completely bypass the majority of the body’s natural immune system which resides in the gut.
A review of compensated cases of vaccine-induced brain injury published in Pace Environmental Law Review in 2011 found that the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) “has been compensating cases of vaccine-induced brain damage associated with autism for more than twenty years” and concluded, “Officials at HHS, the Department of Justice and the Court of Federal Claims may have been aware of this association but failed to publicly disclose it.”
The government has quietly paid out millions of dollars to vaccine victims, but we just continue to shoot more and more of these cocktails into our tiny children and, increasingly, our pregnant women.
Why not? The pediatric and adolescent vaccine market is set to be worth over $16 billion by 2016, and no one pushes those shots harder than the CDC, a well-known revolving door with Big Pharma.
This chart doesn’t even include some of the most egregious examples, such as the fact that Dr. Julie Gerberding who used to head the CDC from 2002-2009 essentially paved the way for her cushy new job as president of Merck & Co’s vaccine division when she left the agency (her 2004 presentation to Congress “Prevention of Genital Human Papillomavirus Infection” set the stage for Merck’s multi-billion-dollar HPV vaccine to be approved, fancy that).
It isn’t hard to see where the mutually beneficial arrangement between CDC and Big Pharma would keep the agency pointing its finger at anything other than the products its pushing.
Our children are being damaged en masse in this country, but none of these so-called medical experts running the show can seem to figure out why? The alarming rise in autism and developmental disabilities in this country are just such a great “mystery,” right?
Parents are supposed to make a choice between giving shots for rare diseases the child may not even ever get anyway (polio was eradicated here in 1985) but face the 1 in 68 (1 in 42 for boys) chance that those shots may cause autism?
Isn’t it Occam’s Razor that says the simplest, most obvious answer is often the right one?
