The neuroscience behind Autism

An increasing number of children are being born with Autism. The rising number of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnoses has led to something of a panic, evidenced by the widespread and hard-to-kill idea that vaccinations cause Autism. Well, they don’t. But that’s not the point of this video. The point is to understand the real science of ASD. This video examines some of the environmental and genetic factors that might contribute to ASD.

    “The rising number of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnoses has led to something of a panic, evidenced by the widespread and hard-to-kill idea that vaccinations cause Autism. Well, they don’t”

    That statement DOES NOT make you sound like an intelligent journalist. It makes you sound foolish.
    I am sure the genetic factors play a role too.

    but, HOW DO YOU KNOW that vaccines don’t cause Autism? Because the government told you that it doesn’t?

    I know plenty of families with autistic children and all of them were healthy kids till they started all the vaccines? When you have a healthy non-autistic child, and then after their first or second round of vaccines they start developing autistic behaviors, that doesn’t sound like nonsense to me.

    Did you take any courses on autism? What makes you intelligent enough to make that claim? Did you go to school? Are you a doctor. Or are you just a pretend journalist? My guess is the latter!

    Again i would make outrageous statement and claims if YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!

    If you believe everything you hear i have a surprise for you.., pigs can fly!

    Thanks for your time and good luck!

    We are too simplistic in how we view causes of things. There may not be just 1 cause of autism. Furthermore, synergistic effects are likely at work here. A leading theory is that children with impaired methylation ( some due to genetic variances) are more vulnerable to toxic overload including from vaccines. Our cookie-cutter vaccination schedule is too much for some kids. In particular we need to be mindful of the amount of aluminum we are injecting. Safety limits are being exceeded in certain vaccines, or in certain combination of vaccines, particularly when the child is below a certain weight.

    I had a perfect pregnancy in every way and had him only two days before my due date. I delivered a perfectly normal, healthy baby boy till his shots. They refused to let him in pre school till he got his vaccines he was 3. I don’t believe in vaccines however I was forced into it.
    One week…yes one week after his shots he started having seizures 70% of the time (they couldn’t stop the seizures) he had to have a port line put in and died and had to be brought back to life several times.
    After all was said and done, my healthy little boy who is now 14 has the mind of a 4-5 year old, he can only count to 10, he can’t read, all he does is color all day. He used to talk before his vaccines, he hasn’t spoke since except mumble words you can’t make out.
    He can’t bathe himself and he has to be in a wheelchair because he can’t walk long distances and has been diagnosed autistic.
    There is a lot more then what I mentioned wrong with him since he was mandated to get vaccinated.
    The same thing almost happened to my daughter (his sister) however since my son was going threw what he was they caught it in time and her health issues are far less.
    Do to all the complications they both had after there shots there has been no more shots.
    I don’t care what anyone says vaccines are a bigger danger to our kids then letting them get the normal little things like chicken pox, measles etc.
    God made us healthy at birth, man however is making to many sick in life by trying to control how our body’s should be.
    To anyone out there who thinks I’m wrong take a month and live in the shoes of a parent who has a healthy child , then take a month and live in the shoes of a child who has autism and/or other problems do to vaccines then comment on it.
    To all the families of children with autism and/or other health issues.
    Have a blessed and wonderful Christmas.
